MIDDLE-EAST MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Old Testament Times...

HADAD

Middle-Eastern Storm God

Also known as RIMMON

Blundering Canaanite Storm God

Known as ‘The Crasher’.

Unlike most Storm Gods who bellow, roar and wield mighty thunder-generating weapons, HADAD causes thunder by stumbling around the sky and falling over things. How embarrassing.

Still, he does get a mention in the Old Testament under the name of Rimmon. And over in Babylon he was greatly respected under the name ADAD.
