The Trinity: One What and Three Whos

Since in dialog with Jewish people the doctrine of the Trinity gets accused of being polytheistic, I've linked to a useful blog entry.

Here is a quote:
All three persons in the Godhead share equally and completely the one divine nature, and are therefore the same God—coequal in attributes, nature, and glory. God has revealed Himself as one in essence, but three in personhood. In terms of what God is (essence), God is one; in terms of who God is (personhood), God is three. God is therefore "one What" and "three Whos." The God of the Bible therefore reflects both a unity of nature (monotheism) and a plurality of personhood (trinitarianism).

Dealing with the Trinity I came across the worship of Semiramis. This is interesting since it dates to early Babylon and speaks of an invisible God his god incarnate son as well as the virgin mother including the holy spirit. This sounds of course very familiar and I wonder if anyone has run across this before. Here is a link with the information. http://bupc.montana.com/whores/worsemi.html

Took a quick look at the article. It appears to describe pagan thinking with Christian terminology, esp. their use of the term "incarnate." That gives the illusion of similarities where there aren't many, at least in regards to the Trinity. They may be onto something regarding this sort of pagan practice influencing Roman Catholic thought about Mary.

In contrast, the Trinity is squarely based on the Tanakh and New Testament.
