The book of Wampuscat
Chapter one and verse one
1:1 And Wampuscat being a lonely Wampuscat created the Universe, before the Universe there was nothing that existed but Wampuscat. For over ten trillion years Wampuscat could only engage in soliloquy, and one day Wampuscat said," I will create something that is not just Wampuscat, I know, I will create a Universe".
So what are the attributes of this creator?

I started out saying the Bible was replete with many examples of polygamy, it was polygamous, but specifically for men to have more than one wife is polygyny. There is a list of 13 Biblical patriarchs who were polygamous, I'm not sure what the plural is for polygyny.

Abraham, had two wives and what was known as concubines, not sure how many concubines though. Abraham was the second polygamist mentioned in the Bible, Lamech was the firs polygamist mentioned in Genesis.

Wampuscat has no discernable physical attributes, wampuscat is everything.

Wampuscat has a secret name that only the celestial wampuscat beings know.

I didn't limit you to physical attributes...any would be fine...

The Bible notes many behaviors that are clearly wrong.

Every single example of polygamy in the Bible is negative.

The Bible consistently states marriage is a man and woman.

Wampuscat is revealing this astonishing account of the creation of the Universe to me. I will begin to put it to paper very soon and mankind will know the truth.

As of positive characteristical traits, Wampuscat has many. Wampuscat is honest, sincere, has a great sense of humor, and is not a jealous wampuscat.

BS, total BS, there is very few negative connotations when polygamy is mentioned. When Lamech was mentioned as having two wives (the first polygamy mentioned in the bible) there was no condemnation of it, nothing negative at all.

I find it interesting that the big bang is noted in Genesis 1:1.

That life was created from the earth.

That the earliest human life is portrayed as genderless.

And marriage reunites a male and female back to the genderless being.

When polygamy is first mentioned in Genesis chapter four what would have been very easy for any God to do would be to have immediately commanded that polygamy was wrong, or sky-God could have had just a little obviation with Adam and Eve after they became mortal and commanded them that all polygamy was wrong, but Sky-God didn't did he?

The story of Adam and Eve is an allegorical story anyway , the bible is an allegorical book, so to interpret it as factual and not partially fictional is a mistake itself.

Um sweetie, the Torah doesn't forbid polygamy and in the case of levirate marriages, commands it. Of the four major Jewish sects, the Ashkenazim, Sephardi, Mizrahi and Yemenites, only the Ashkenazim have formally banned the practice and they only did so about 1000 years ago, the Sephardi and Mizrahi have a de facto ban only because most of them now live in countries where the practice is banned by the government, the Yemenite community, which still exists in a number of Arab countries still practices it.

I thought you had read the Bible. Abraham, David, Jacob and Solomon all had multiple wives and Deuteronomy 25:5-10 says that men are to marry their brother's widow.

Did you know that our English word lament comes from Lamech?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamech

"Interpretation

When fully translated, the text has a strong resemblance simply to a basic mythology concerning the origin of the various forms of civilisation, the shepherds and musicians being products of the day, and pleasure being a product of the night. Blacksmiths, in carrying out their trade, are also associated with the darkness. Thus, in a sense, Lamech could be interpreted as a culture hero. Some of the names also appear to demonstrate punning - Jabal, Jubal, and Tubal rhyme, and appear to be derived from the same root - JBL (YVL in modern Hebrew): to bring forth,(also) to carry. A similar description existed amongst Phoenicians.

The names are instead interpreted in the Midrash as an attack on polygamy. Adah is there interpreted as the deposed one, implying that Lamech spurned her in favour of Zillah, whose own name is understood to mean she shaded herself [from Zillah at Lamech's side]. The Midrash consequently regards Adah as having been treated as a slave, tyrannised by her husband, who was at the beck and call of his mistress, Zillah. It further goes on to claim that part of the immorality, which had led God to flood the earth, was the polygamy practised by Lamech and his generation.

The rabbinical tradition is just as condemning of Naamah. While a minority, such as Abba ben Kahana, see Naamah as having become Noah's wife, and being so named because her conduct was pleasing to God, the majority of classical rabbinical sources consider her name to be due to her singing pleasant songs in worship of idols."

Excellent information,I have never done that much research on it, but I do know that the Pentateuch(the first five Books of the bible) even provide rules to men who take multiple wives.

Didn't Moses have two wives himself, and Didn't King David have five wives and concubines , not to mention King Solomon.

Ah, Tricky dicky Ricky,

I care not where someone goes, the ultimate source is what matters.

The standard is set, and consistently repeated.

That is why gays are desperate to either discount the Bible, or distort what it says. Not just about marriage, but about gay sex.

Exodus 21 :10 If he marries another woman, he must not deprive the first one of her food, clothing and marital rights.

I believe that is instructions for polygamous marriages

According to Deuteronomy, if your brother dies, you are to marry his widow.
