I am concerned that Obama the Messiah is an imposter. What if he actually belongs to the Cult of the Dead Fish? Then again, maybe he's the Messiah for people who worship the ancient Greek half-man, half-fish god Nereus. According to the editors at Wiki, "Nereus was known for his truthfulness and virtue." Ophra Winfrey says basically the same thing about Obama. Hmmm.
Or heaven forbid, what if he's Oannes, the Babylonian half-man half-fish god, sent by Ea to deliver unto us the ever changing art of civilization?
Dagon was a major northwest Semitic god, reportedly of grain and agriculture. He was worshipped by the early Amorites and by the inhabitants of the cities of Ebla and Ugarit (which was an ancient city near the Mediterranean containing a large variety of ancient writings and pagan shrines). He was also a major member, or perhaps head, of the pantheon of the Biblical Philistines.
His name appears in Hebrew as דגון (in modern transcription Dagon, Tiberian Hebrew Dāḡôn), in Ugaritic as dgn (probably vocalized as Dagnu), and in Akkadian as Dagana, Daguna usually rendered in English translations as Dagan.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dagan
