I came to an interesting conclusion but read this first,,,,,
no appologies for the length of this blog.
Of course, the story of Adam as portrayed in the Bible is just myth – a few short lines of scientific / historic events which took place over a period of time but reduced to make it look divine. When we look at today's sciences we can clearly see what happened when we collate knowledge from different sources. Let's investigate in some depth what occurred..... and be warned, the sources were to be found in the most difficult to reach places, hidden from plain sight but there for all to find because the gods told us so in Gen.1 – well actually in the Enuma Elish and the Epic of Gilagamesh and in the Lost Book of Enki, and a million other places if you care to just look.
Lets start with the graphic here (link - http://www.sitchin.com/images/adam1.jpg) picture-in-picture, the god.
What can we derive from his addmix and the jars? Well, firstly he must be a scientist of some renown to have been charged with the making of mankind. He would have to know about micro-sciences, biology, chemistry, chromosomes, DNA, how to extract and mix, be able to think outside the box, be daring and strong in the face of failure and try something new. Also be immoral when dealing with DNA cutting and splicing and to cast away and abandon that which does not fit the criteria.
We are told that the gods needed to make a creature to work for them. To do their bidding and to take the toil of work away from the gods. There was an urgent need and it took precedence over everything else at that time. I think the 3-jars on the shelf contain earlier attempts in this process and like all things new, it didn't work first time. At this point we could mention in passing some of the failings …. Neanderthal man (or similar), or the mixing of earth's species together which formed half-beasts which were unsuitable as workers (classed as mythological beasts) and suchlike. So thinking out of the box the DNA of an earthly beast was mixed in a clay jar with that of a gods, producing mankind in the image of god. The image of course being in the chromosomes and the DNA of the new specie, hidden from plain sight (as God is supposed to be) but everywhere at once.
You probably know that clay is sterile and this is the reference in the Bible of the clay of the earth. What a base starting point for the Bible but how did the writers get this knowledge?
Would it surprise you if I also told you that we know this geneticist gods' name? His name in the Sumerian Version of the creation story is Ningishzidda.
Enki is in the center and is regarded as the creator god. He is depicted here holding the successful addmix for all to see. It was under his commision that Ningishzidda made his undertaking and this addmix was the cumulation of perhaps several hundred or even thousands of years in the making. It would be foolish of us to think that the making of mankind happened on the first attempt and hey presto!, abracadabra, out of your aunties fanny there it was, poof - Mankind !
Enki is the instigator of the creation.
Ninmah is the nursemaid charged with the welfare of the child. Adam is depicted as a young child so confirming the success and he is looking at her as a child does it's mother. You get an idea of his age from his size and the length of his pony tail.
Notice the Tree of Life with only 9 leaves. A significant amount was still missing from Adam's DNA-genes but there was enough there for the breed of the mankind worker to be a resounding success and all the gods wanted at least one to take their work toil. Later, as the addmix was refined we see the Tree of Life with more branches but in the beginning we had just enough to make us efficient workers but no more refined than that. The giving mankind reign over the beasts reference in the Bible happened at a much later time.
What is particularly perplexing is that after all this hard work and effort on behalf of the Ningishzidda, Enki and Ninmah it all turned sour and Adam was ejected from Eden and mankind was abandoned, for the first time. Why did this happen? Well, we are told in the Lost Book of Enki, that Adam was given additional branches on the tree of life, that he was modified to enable him to speak and to procreate. This was the crux of the matter and no small thing it was either. The gods ejected mankind from Eden because they had become too much like the gods had gained knowledge. And there was the additional danger that they would take of the Tree of Life and attain long lives like the gods had. This was the danger that got Adam & Eve expelled forever. All the gods with the exception of Enki, the creator god, abandoned mankind and left them to their own devices. The story of what happened after the expulsion can be found in the Book of Adam, an ancient epic which can be found on the Internet.
In many ways this story is a bit like the old Wild West with the rules made up as you go along. Remember, they had a job to do – no matter what obstacles, they could not fail. So without anybody watching over their shoulders they were free to manipulate DNA in anyway they wished.
While I was re-reading/writing this chapter a thought suddenly struck me. It was such an obvious thing that I have overlooked it all my life. The story of Adam and Eve as portrayed to us through bible stories and artwork has absolutely nothing to do with the gods creating Adam & Eve as the lead story. It is only a cover story. The real story is of the vast knowledge the gods had and how they used and abused it to suit themselves. The Adam & Eve story is about the gods! Them, not us! It is man who wrote the 'cover story' to make it look divine but the gods were so inflated with their own self importance and immunity that the only way for this story to be told is to tell it as if Adam is the central point therefore making the gods look like a supreme God – which just isn't true. These gods were like the baddies of the wild west and they had come here to rape and pillage the earth's minerals and gold. Mankind was for them just a way to get the work done without having to do it themselves. They were essentially the most knowledgeable, technologically advanced, scruple-less lazy bastards ever to have walked this earth!
I think I'll go and re-read the Bible with this in mind and see if it is logical.
