BASIC COMMANDMENTS FOR MESOPOTAMIANS (BABYLONIANS)
*The one supreme God, the all mighty, the omnipresent is the only true God and lord, MARDOK . Thou shall not have any other Gods besides thy lord, MARDOK.
*Thou shall not make any graven image or idol for worship
*Thou shall take the name of holy high lord, the MARDOK with reverence and worship and shall not take its name in vain
*Remember the weekly holiday (Sabbath) and to keep it holy.
*Honor and give due respect to your father and mother
*Thou shall not kill, except in self defense
*Thou shall not commit adultery
*Thou shall not steel or indulge in corruption
*Thou shall not bear false witness
*Thou shall not covet things which do not belong to you or
things you do not deserve (like neighbour's wife, house and belongings)
*Thou will and should always marry or reproduce with a Mesopotamian. Marriage or reproduction with a non-Mesopotamian is strictly prohibited. Though sexual intercourse with a non- Mesopotamian is allowed under certain circumstances.
*Thou shall always maintain straight life and shun homosexuality. Homosexuality is a crime, punishable by death.
An important corollary of above commandments and Monotheism is that Mesopotamian commandments are public in sphere, with no claim to any individual superiority and hence according to Mesopotamian Law, no individual can claim prophethood. Any such claim is bogus and punishable offence according to Mesopotamian laws, culture and tradition.
Another very important corollary, which follows from the above discussion and commandments is that Mesopotamians can have only a Mesopotamian as holy priest or holy King or spiritual leader. Taking a Non-Mesopotamian as priest or King or Spiritual leader is blasphemy and an offense punishable by death.
