Who is the Devil ?

The Devil is not a who (a noun) but an adjective. It comes from the Greek word διάβολος or diábolos, which literally means diabolic, diabolical, deceiver, liar, or slanderer. It could be any man or being. It is not the name or title of an anti-God nor fallen angel. Below are a few examples of its usage incorrectly and correctly in scripture.

From Merriam Webster:

Devil: Middle English devel, from Old English dēofol, from Late Latin diabolus, from Greek diabolos, literally, slanderer, from diaballein to throw across, slander, from dia- + ballein to throw; probably akin to Sanskrit gurate he lifts up

Diabolical: Like the word devil, “diabolical” traces back to Latin diabolus, which itself descends from Greek diabolos, a word that literally means “slanderer.”

Revelation (Apocalypse) 20:10: “and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” _Incorrect

Revelation (Apocalypse) 20:10: “and the diabolic who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” _Correct

Revelation 12:9-10: 9) “And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. 10) And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.“_Incorrect

Revelation 12:9-10: 9) “And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the diabolic and adversary, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. 10) And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.“_Correct  [Satan is changed to its correct meaning, adversary]

1 Peter 5:8-9: 8) “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9) Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.“_Incorrect

1 Peter 5:8-9: 8) “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the diabolic prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9) Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.“_Correct

Luke 10:15: 18) 15) “And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell. 16) He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. 17) And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. 18) And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”_Incorrect

Luke 10:15: 18) 15) “And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell. 16) He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. 17) And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the diabolical are subject unto us through thy name. 18) And he said unto them, I beheld [the] adversary as lightning fall from heaven.”_Correct

One could use diabolical or diabolic in place of any of those other words, and mean the same thing. One can clearly see that from the different scripture above, and how it works with what satan actually means; adversary. Somewhere along the line, the Greek word, diábolos, was turned into devil, (some claim it to be a German translation), and not properly translated into the English word, diabolic or diabolical.

You’ll notice a bit of trickery in the words at 1 Peter 5:8-9: 8) “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Here, they translate satan to adversary in Greek, because it will give the whole thing away if they didn’t. They did this throughout the New Testament. If it were written in Hebrew, it would have read: ” Your satan [adversary] the diabolic [liar] prowls around….”

In the instance of Luke 10:15-18, Jesus states that the city of Capernaum, and the people within it, thought themselves exalted to Heaven, but he would thrust them down to hell. After the seventy came back from the the different cities, they stated that the deceivers or the diabolical were subject to Jesus’ name. Jesus then stated that he had foresaw or beheld the adversary, (the people and the city), as lightning fall (plural) from Heaven. None of those verses was about a devil, anti-God, or fallen angel named Satan.

Are New Bibles Mistranslated?

I was looking at the different translations of Isaiah 45:7 in the new versions of the Bible, and have found that many of the translations are totally incorrect about the verse. It makes one wonder if they aren’t intentional. The Complete Jewish Bible (1) has the full text of the Tanakh, in both Hebrew and English, and when one does the translation for the Hebrew word, רָע (rah), one will find that the many new translations claim that it means catastrophe, calamity, or disaster which is errant nonsense. The correct Hebrew to English translation of the word is actually defined as bad or evil. (2) Here, in Isaiah 45:7, God states that he creates both light and dark, good and evil, and there is no other. Below is a direct translation from The Complete Jewish Bible. (1)

7-Eng-Hebrew

The King James Version, along with several other versions, have this same translation correct. Below, is the correct translation for the Hebrew word, רָע, (rah), along with the English to Hebrew translation for evil. The Hebrew word, rah, in Isiah 45:7, is shown in the red box of the screen capture above.

7-Eng-Hebrew2

7-Eng-Hebrew3

This is supported by the Jewish belief that there is no such thing as a devil, nor any anti-God or fallen angel, named satan. (2) See my article on satan, to find out what the word actually means. In every circumstance, in the Tanakh (Old Testament), even in Job, the word, satan, is always written as “ha-satan” meaning “the adversary”, which is not a proper name for any one thing. (2) Judaism believes that God uses a satan or adversary to do his bidding, when God needs an adversary against humankind, or in essence, to do God’s evil, or to stand in mans way if God wishes it to be done. (2) David was called a satan, along with an entire army, and so was the unnamed angel in Job within the Tanakh. Funnily, the translation of catastrophe, disaster, or calamity are nowhere to be found, as that is another Hebrew word all together, (אסוןacown” [aws-sone] meaning disaster, tragedy, catastrophe, or calamity). This makes one wonder if they are purposely trying to change the original Hebrew, to hide the fact that a devil named Satan is not real, and was a fabrication of the Hellenist Roman Catholic church. To do this, is fooling the reader into believing in the pagan and polytheistic Greek God, Hades, myth, which is also blasphemy, by saying that God did not state what he did in Isaiah 45:7. There are also other verses in the Tanakh to back this up, and they are quoted below.

Lamentations 3:37-38:

37) “Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not? 38) Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not [both] evil and good?”

Deuteronomy 30:15:

15) “See, I [God] have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil.”

Amos 3:6 KJV

(6) “Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?”

Exodus 9:14 KJV

(14) “For I [God] will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.”

The concept of God’s evil is not just catastrophes such as earthquakes or floods, but it also includes plagues, disease, death, and creating war. These very stories can be found in ancient Sumerian stories that led to the later religion of Judaism. God can be found sending a satan to cause all of this evil in the Tanakh. As an example of one story, in the earliest instance, God tells David to do a census, but 500 years later, in the same rewritten story, it has a satan telling David to do it. That census was seen as a form of evil that led to bad things. God had a satan, an unnamed angel, do many bad things to Job to test his faith. That is another example of God using a satan to do his evil. The Hebrew word, רָע, (rah) is defined as evil, which is exactly what is stated in Isiah 45:7.

There are no devils, fallen angels, nor some anti-God creating sin, as man creates sin such as adultery and murder him or her self. Sin is on mans shoulders alone. Sin is defined as man breaking God’s law, (the commandments), since God gave man free will. There is no “the devil made me do it” in the history of Rabbinical Judaism, nor the real Christianity taught in the time of Jesus, James, and Peter, whom were all Pharisees.

Below, I quote Elaine Pagels, who received her PhD in religion from Harvard University, and is the Harrington Spear Paine Professor of Religion at Princeton University.:

In biblical sources, the Hebrew term, “the satan” [ha-satan], describes an adversarial role. It is not the name of a particular character. Although Hebrew storytellers, as early as the sixth century B.C.E., occasionally introduced a supernatural character whom they called “the satan”, what they meant was, any one of the angels sent by God for the specific purpose of blocking or obstructing human activity. [Elaine Pagels, “The Origin of Satan,” 1995]

Below, I quote Rabbi Tovia Singer (2) about the new Bible translations:

The word “disaster” inserted by the New International Version is misleading and purposely ambiguous so that the uninformed reader could conclude that this word refers to natural disasters, such as typhoons, earthquakes and hurricanes. This dubious translation was deliberately forged to conceal the prophet’s original message. As mentioned above, the King James Version correctly translates this verse, and renders the Hebrew word רָע (rah) as “evil.”

The Bibles which show woe, and one, trouble, can be overlooked as inaccurate, as that is one translation of a similar use, though not the most used version for the word rah. However, it does seem as they are trying to downplay the original meaning. Wrong, evil, and bad are the three most common translations and usages, though the majority of the Bibles, which include the Orthodox Jewish Bible, show evil. I believe that I would rather take a Jews word about what a Hebrew word means, since it is their language.

Last, the Bibles shown above, that are correct about Isaiah 45:7, have some mistranslation errors themselves, such as the King James Version, when compared to the original texts, such as the Latin Vulgate or the Orthodox Jewish Bibles. One glaringly obvious one, is the mention of the Latin word, Lucifer, in Isaiah 14:12, which Judaism says should be Morning Star, the Son of the Morning, or Venus. That is what the Latin word, lucifer, actually defines, and not a devil, fallen angel, nor an anti-God. Judaism says that there was no such thing as a fallen angel in their canonical texts. For a fallen angel to happen, that would mean that God created an imperfect angel, and it would say that God had no control of it. That is blasphemy.

The psychology of conspiracy believers and theorists .

A conspiracy believer falls into several psychological categories, that will be discussed below. The conspiracy theorists are either those like the believer, or they are liars, who create these theories out of malice, or to make money off the gullible. Sadly, the gullible, who have a paranoid personality, falls for the theory, and the unscrupulous makes money from selling them books, DVDs, lectures, and the like. This has been taking place for hundreds of years, and one good example of this is the Taxil Hoax, which lasted twelve years, before it’s author revealed it to all be a lie, to the Catholic clergy and the press, at Paris, France, in 1897. The problem is, the liars still use this hoax, to make money off the believers, as they are not aware that it is a hoax from 1897, or they believe that Taxil confessed under duress, which he did not, as he made two confessions; the last was a year before he died, where he laughed at the gullible.

According to several psychologists and psychiatrists, the multi-conspiracy believers have to have someone to blame. They have a paranoid personality (1)(2)(3) that needs to be in control of any situation, and when they think that someone else is in control, they tend to believe in conspiracies, that are not based on evidence and fact. They need to shift blame onto someone else, and demand to see them pay for their crime. Also, if their life has not gone the way they think it should, then they look for an outside reason or someone else to blame. Dr Darshani Kumareswaran, PhD in psychology, states that “according to the literature, people are more likely to believe in, or create, conspiracy theories to try to make sense of situations where they have little or no control”. (2)(3) Also, those who have this paranoid type of personality may be the very ones who spread the theories. According to Dr Darshani Kumareswaran : “I also found that someone who creates conspiracy theories is more likely to have some form of psychopathology or mental illness, such as paranoid thinking, compared to those who believe in conspiracy theories, but do not create them, or people who do not believe in them at all,” explains Dr Kumareswaran. “Belief in conspiracy theories is possibly a means of trying to re-establish a sense of control over a situation.” There is also the psychological disorder known as compulsive lying disorder, which may come into play, along with sociopathy.

Now, I will write about the charlatans, liars, and frauds, who either make up conspiracy theories, or hoaxes, out of mid air, or repeat old hoaxes and theories, and use them to defraud the believers. Here, I will use the Taxil Hoax as an example. I have found that not only do some well known authors use parts of the hoax, such as Dan Brown, but so do many so-called clergymen, who claim to be pastors of certain church denominations, along with the conspiracy peddlers, themselves.

The Southern Baptist Convention did a study on Freemasonry, mainly over the Taxil Hoax, titled A Study of Freemasonry, by the Interfaith Witness Department, Home Mission Board, Southern Baptist Convention. (4) The study debunked many of the SBC’s own pastors, such as Dr. James L Holly, Larry Kunk, Jerry Falwell, Ted Haggard, David Carrico, Dan Harting, Kent Hovind, Pat Robertson, John Ankerberg, John Weldon, Texe Marrs, William “Bill” Schnoebelen, and the comic publisher, Jack Chick. There are also the conspiracy theorists, who parrot all or part of the hoax, such as Alex Jones, David Icke, Jim Marrs, John Todd, Milton William ‘Bill’ Cooper, and Kevin McNeil-Smith. One will also note, that most all of these conspiracists, have offered up books, DVDs, video tapes, audio CDs and tapes, and lectures for sale to their audience. If you are thinking the same as I, then you are correct, in that they are using the Taxil hoax, along with many other conspiracies, to make a profit from their gullible followers, even today, after they were debunked by the study mentioned, and by many others. In my opinion, that is fraud, plain and simple.

Where did the conspiracy theorists and charlatan pastors get their idea? One can go back to John Robison, and his book, Proofs of a conspiracy, and the French Jesuit priest, Abbot Augustin Barruel’s, writing. (8) John Robison quoted Barruel’s writing, which was put forth by the Catholic clergy. (8) They used rumor and speculation to claim that the Illuminati still survived, had infiltrated Freemasonry, and was responsible for the French Revolution, even though neither had any solid nor factual, citable, evidence, (5)(8) and both have been debunked by university scholars of world history. (8) Both made a good amount of money over peddling rumor and speculation as truth, which was fanned by the Catholic church. (5)(8) Later, you had writers such as Edith Starr Miller, (Lady Queenborough), Cardinal Rodriguez of Chile, and William Guy Carr, who parroted not only Robison, but Leo Taxil. (6) William Carr was even caught forging the so-called Three World Wars letter, supposedly written by Albert Pike, which was also thoroughly debunked by university scholars. Taxil’s work had died down, until Carr gave the idea to the other charlatans, such as those mentioned above, and all of them have made money, through what I think is fraud, from gullible conspiracy believers.

Below, I quote Rob Brotherton’s article at The Daily Beast (7):

Over nine years, the Illuminati grew to a few hundred members. But Weishaupt’s personality rubbed some members the wrong way, and they spilled the beans. Rumors about the secret society spread, getting embellished along the way into ever more sordid allegations. By the mid-1780s it had caught the attention of the Bavarian government, which put an end to Weishaupt’s fun by banning Illuminati activity under penalty of death. Weishaupt fled and gave up the secret shenanigans; there’s no evidence that he or anyone else tried to keep the organization going.

That likely would have been the last anyone heard of the Illuminati, if not for the French Revolution, which kicked off a few years later. Searching for an explanation for the unprecedented social upheavals taking place around them, some European authors suggested the Illuminati was pulling the strings. Sensational theories spread around Europe and America alleging that the Illuminati was still operating in secret, more powerful than ever, and that it aimed to overthrow all the governments of Europe.

This is not to say that some conspiracies aren’t true. The JFK assassination is one example, where a recent congressional hearing concluded that the killing was a conspiracy, and not a lone gunman, but they have no idea about who was involved in it. Another was Richard Nixon and Watergate. However, many of the people who believed in these theories only had the one conspiracy belief, and did not believe in every other conspiracy theory that was before the public, like the multi-conspiracy beliefs of the paranoid personalities.

My conclusion is this. If you see someone offering pamphlets, magazines, books, DVDs, audio tapes and CDs of lectures, or comic books, that claim to be spreading the truth about conspiracies, and they are always pro-conspiracy, etc, then you should be very weary of them, as the chances are, and the odds are low, that they may be frauds. Look at the sources that they cite, and if they are citing similar pro-conspiracy material, as fact, from known conspiracy theorists or religious sources, and not from scholarly sources, such as universities, professors, professionals, etc, then that is a sign of malice, bias, prejudice, nonfactuality, untruthfulness, conjecture, and rumor mongering. Also, if one believes in every conspiracy that is now before the public, then maybe one should seek the help of a psychologist or psychiatrist, as this is not normal human behavior. They can help one cope with their paranoid personality disorder, if they are diagnosed as having one.

So Mote It Be.

Heresy of Wikipedia

I was reading the Wikipedia article about the word, Satan, which is mostly correct, until you get to the bottom of the section on Judaism, and the subsection about Job. The Judaism section is completely correct, that satan is always written as “ha-satan” in the Tanakh, which means “the adversary”, or an adversary, and not some devil or anti-God. The word, satan, is Hebrew after all. However, you will finally come to the book of Job, and below is what is written, which is completely debunked by what is written in the rest of the section on Judaism, just above it.

At the beginning of the book, Job is a good person “who revered God and turned away from evil” (Job 1:1), and has therefore been rewarded by God. When the angels present themselves to God, Satan comes as well. God informs Satan about Job’s blameless, morally upright character. Between Job 1:9–10 and 2:4–5, Satan points out that God has given Job everything that a man could want, so of course Job would be loyal to God; Satan suggests that Job’s faith would collapse if all he has been given (even his health) were to be taken away from him. God therefore gives Satan permission to test Job. In the end, Job remains faithful and righteous, and there is the implication that Satan is shamed in his defeat.

One can laugh at the absurdity of this, as this just points out the idiocy of quoting Wikipedia, unless one absolutely has to, and has no other source, especially on the topics of Biblical theology and history, as the fanatical and fundamentalist Christians will not leave scholarly written articles alone. The entire article, about Job, is made incorrect, by stating that “Satan comes as well. God informs Satan about Job’s blameless, morally upright character”. Since satan is an unknown angel, satan did not come as well, it was all the angels who came, where one unknown angel became “ha-satan”, or “the adversary”, that God used.  The rest of the paragraph, about Job, gives the same incorrect spiel, using the word, satan, as a proper name.

Under the section on Judaism, it states what is written below, plainly, before you reach the subsection about Job at the bottom:

Hebrew Bible

The original Hebrew term satan is a noun from a verb meaning primarily “to obstruct, oppose”, as it is found in Numbers 22:22, 1 Samuel 29:4, Psalms 109:6. Ha-Satan is traditionally translated as “the accuser” or “the adversary”. The definite article ha- (English: “the”) is used to show that this is a title bestowed on a being, versus the name of a being. Thus, this being would be referred to as “the satan”.

Thirteen occurrences

Ha-Satan with the definite article occurs 13 times in the Masoretic Text, in two books of the Hebrew Bible: Job ch.1–2 (10x) and Zechariah 3:1–2 (3x).

Satan without the definite article is used in 10 instances, of which two are translated diabolos [slanderer for adversary] in the Septuagint and “Satan” in the King James Version:

  • 1 Chronicles 21:1, “Satan stood up against Israel” (KJV) or “And there standeth up an adversary against Israel” (Young’s Literal Translation)
  • Psalm 109:6b “and let Satan stand at his right hand” (KJV) or “let an accuser stand at his right hand.” (ESV, etc.)

The other eight instances of satan without the definite article are traditionally translated (in Greek, Latin and English) as “an adversary”, etc., and taken to be humans or obedient angels:

  • Numbers 22:22,32 “and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him.”
  • 32 “behold, I went out to withstand thee,”
  • 1 Samuel 29:4 The Philistines say: “lest he [David] be an adversary against us”
  • 2 Samuel 19:22 David says: “[you sons of Zeruaiah] should this day be adversaries (plural) unto me?”
  • 1 Kings 5:4 Solomon writes to Hiram: “there is neither adversary nor evil occurrent.”
  • 1 Kings 11:14 “And the LORD stirred up an adversary unto Solomon, Hadad the Edomite”
  • 1 Kings 11:23 “And God stirred him up an adversary, Rezon the son of Eliadah”
  • 25 “And he [Rezon] was an adversary to Israel all the days of Solomon”

It gets worse, when you take a look at the Talk Page, and see that the author is confronted about this. The author states that since it was what the dictionaries stated, then it was okay. Evidently, they have no idea what a proper dictionary is, nor how to use one, so I will state what Merriam-Webster has on the the word, satan:

  1. :  the angel who in Jewish belief is commanded by God to tempt humans to sin, to accuse the sinners, and to carry out God’s punishment

  2. :  the rebellious angel who in Christian belief is the adversary of God and lord of evil

Dictionary.com actually has the correct definition, if you scroll on down the page; imagine that! It also has a quote by Elaine Pagels, PhD, who is the Harrington Spear Paine Professor of Religion at Princeton University, and the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship.

satan:

noun

…from Hebrew satan “adversary, one who plots against another,” from satan “to show enmity to, oppose, plot against,” from root s-t-n “one who opposes, obstructs, or acts as an adversary.”

In Septuagint (Greek) usually translated as diabolos “slanderer,” literally “one who throws (something) across” the path of another (see devil (n.)), though epiboulos “plotter” is used once.

“In biblical sources, the Hebrew term, ‘the satan’, describes an adversarial role. It is not the name of a particular character. Although Hebrew storytellers, as early as the sixth century B.C.E., occasionally introduced a supernatural character whom they called ‘the satan’, what they meant was any one of the angels sent by God, for the specific purpose of blocking or obstructing human activity”. [Elaine Pagels, PhD, “The Origin of Satan,” 1995]

The word, diabolos , which was used in two instances, is translated as a slanderer, from the Greek: διαβάλλω ‎(diabállō, I slander), from διά ‎(diá, across) and βάλλω ‎(bállō, I throw). Here, in its original form, the definition is not a devil, nor is epiboulos for “plotter”.

No wonder Judaism dislikes Christianity, when the early Hellenist Christians took what the Jews wrote, and bastardized it, changing it into something that Judaism never taught. It seems as though, the biblical education of the Christians, is far from being correct.

Who was Adam ?

Updated on: 10/18/16

Introduction.

Adam and Eve are not who science claims them to be. The archaeologists, anthropologists, and paleontologists, (12) merely tagged a name onto one-half of the ancestors of the modern and anatomically correct human, who they say are Cro-Magnon man, but I think that we modern humans were created from him as a hybrid. Science has proclaimed that African Apes or Chimpanzees and their progeny, (who were those that preceded Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal man), are the direct evolutionary ancestors of “Adam and Eve,” and that the chromosomal difference is just a natural fluke to support their strict Darwinian view. They did this without revealing everything to their public audience, which was about what prominent university and medical laboratory studies have found about our DNA. What little they did reveal, was later found to be incorrect, concerning our chromosome number, what supposedly changed it,  how it was changed, and the dating of our species. In this article, you will learn of what I have discovered, which was recorded in ancient metaphorical writing, and what has been published in peer reviewed, scientific literature.

Michael Cremo, an alumnus of George Washington University, who has written several exposés on archeology and anthropology, thus exposing many cases of professional fraud, in his book, Forbidden Archeology, stated it best, while on a radio interview in 2011, that there are three thoughts on the origins of man, which are that of the scientific community, that of the simplistic and mystical views of today’s religion, and that of an extra-terrestrial or other involvement. He stated that it was more complex than either of the three, and that he thought that it was likely a mixture of all three, as do I. However, could it have been extra-terrestrials, since no concrete proof has been given? The only proof that we have, is that early man had suddenly became civilized, after the creation of the Sumerian city of Eridu. That does not support extra-terrestrials. What it does support, is the possible contact of an advanced race with those that became modern humans. Mesopotamia boomed, after Eridu’s founding, which can be dated to 5400 BCE, with new canals and ditch systems for farm irrigation. Man had learned to fabricate his own tools from copper and bronze. The Sumerian myth stated that it had been founded under King Alulim, which lasted for 64,800 years, before it declined in 2050 BCE. In reality, its existence, as a city, was from 5400 to 2050 BCE, around 6600 years after the great flood, which allegedly happened around 12,000 BCE, which created the Persian Gulf. However, the earliest Sumerian stories state that it was merely the rivers flooding, and not some swamping deluge that covered the earth. The next is about water spilling through the straight of Hormuz, and creating the Persian Gulf. Neither support the 40 day rain account of Genesis, with the complete swamping of the world, which is a highly embellished allegory. Thus, there are two probable theories about the great flood.

Also, it wasn’t very long that modern man had gained the knowledge to build massive temples and pyramids all over the world, starting with mud bricks and advancing to the use of large hewn stones, (megaliths), weighing several hundred to over one thousand tons, (the largest known is 1,600 tons), which we have no way of moving or lifting today, without using some of the newest and largest cranes that have just been designed and built, as of 2015. Then, there is the problem of transporting them to the site. We also know that they could work, saw, and bore through the toughest of stones such as granite, which should not have been possible with the tools that they had. Archaeologists and anthropologists, (soft science), claim that those stones were hewn with a stone hammer and copper chisel. Soft stone such as limestone, maybe, but not the harder stones. Real science, (hard science), that of the university departments of engineering and physics, have debunked these theories at every turn, especially the lifting and moving of the heaviest stones. Soft Science also claims that these megaliths were cut and moved by the Romans, but the dating of others state that they are much older, and that the Baalbek Temple is built upon ancient megalithic foundation, where one can see smaller stones being used upon the top of the megaliths.

The Mesopotamians worshiped a group that they called the Igigi or Anunnaki, who were their Gods and kings. Approximately 300 years later, the Egyptians became civilized, with their own style of writing. India, Iran, and many other countries followed in their wake, though India claims to have found a form of ancient writing that is as old, and is untranslatable. Their religious histories seems to somewhat match, except for the names of their Gods, or how many there were. Their study of cosmology and theology are close, along with their priests gnostic knowledge. The Sumerians, Akkadians, and Babylonians, tell of Adapa or Adamu, (Adam), and six others just like him, who had been educated by the God, Enki, and were known as the seven sages. Adapa, the first sage, was the king of the city of Eridu, the oldest Mesopotamian city, of which, Enki, was the God of.

First, Science claims that Adam and Eve were from Africa, around Lake Victoria, and that is incorrect. That is where those ancestors of Cro-Magnon man originated; the so-called cave men, that science claims originated from the African Ape, Chimp, etc, but that is not the Adam nor Eve. Second, the tale of Adam and Eve, in Genesis, is technically correct, but that allegorical story is describing the creation of the second version, or the human hybrid, and one that can procreate, not the first. It is also not describing the hybrid progeny of Cro-Magnon man who migrated into the Middle-East from Egypt.

To understand the story of Adam, one has to understand the Torah. The story of Genesis is a metaphorical allegory, and everything factual is hidden or veiled in the text. The Torah, which contains the first five books of the Tanakh (Old Testament), are purposely written this way. If you are a biblical dogmatic literalist, or a literalist of science, who believes that the words of the Torah were meant to be factually written, then you might want to stop here, as you will not be able to comprehend the truth. A literalist can not understand ancient religious writing, period.

To study this ancient history, one has to study the writing of the oldest middle-eastern civilizations (there are writing and logographics in other nations that are said to be older). I refer to the cuneiform writing and logographics of the ancient Sumerians, engraved on clay tablets and cylinder seals, which are said to be one of the oldest, dating their creation to approximately 4000 to 3500 BCE (6,000 years old), though this is “preceded by the Azilian and Tartarian signaries of Europe as well as by a variety of script-like notational systems between the Nile and Indus rivers.” (22) In comparison, the Veda Samhitas date to roughly 1700 to 1100 BCE, and the Upanishads are dated 800 to 300 BCE. The original Sumerian script, evolved into the writing of the Akkadian, Eblaite, Elamite, Hittite, Luwian, Hattic, Hurrian, and Urartian languages, and it is thought to have inspired the Ugaritic alphabet and Old Persian cuneiform. Egyptian hieroglyphics, and the Hieratic form, (Hieratic: Egyptian religious texts), can be dated to 3200 BCE, 300 to 800 years shy of the Sumerians. There is another form of writing, found in India, that is said the be as ancient, but it has yet to be translated by anyone. Last, there is the Dispilio Tablet, found at a Neolithic lake settlement in Northern Greece, near the city of Kastoria, which was dated to 5260 BCE, with an unknown alphabet that looks similar to ancient runes.

Genesis was written, in its final form, either during or just after the Jews detention at Babylon, between 597 BCE to 539 BCE, where they heard the ancient religious stories of the Babylonians, the earlier Akkadians, and thus, the earliest Sumerians, whom are the oldest known cultural civilization with any translatable writing. (19) The Sumerians are the first known “civilized” people, who had the first farming, writing, laws, contracts, courts, government, etc. The Jews also have their own history, which was traditionally handed down, verbally and by writing, from those who were the descendants of Abraham, (who was from Ur, located in southern Mesopotamia), which are the same stories. (14)(19) Ur is just northeast from Eridu, approximately 15 miles away. Eridu is the home of the Lord God Enki, along with it’s king, Adapa, which is supposedly the earliest Sumerian city. Here, in this southern area of Mesopotamia, is where the story begins, with the creation of the anatomically correct hybrid human, modern man. In this area, I believe, is where the Cro-Magnon that migrated from Egypt, eventually was mixed with the Igigi, creating man as their servants.

Below, I quote John Pickard’s book (20), Behind the Myths:

These biblical Creation and Flood myths are in fact a rehash of myths that were very common among all peoples in the Near East, not least the Assyrians and Babylonians, the dominant cultures during the first period of setting oral tradition down in literary form. The epic Babylonian story of Gilgamesh has come down to us in the form of preserved cuneiform tablets which predate Homer’s Ilias by perhaps a thousand years and the writing of the biblical stories by nearly half as much again. In his History, Dubnov tabulates some of the Babylonian Creation myths alongside those of the Biblical narrative to show the remarkable similarity between the two.

One must understand that these ancient stories are all metaphorical. One can not take them literally, nor can one take, for fact, that every God mentioned was actually a living human being or a mythical figure. They gave names of Gods to things such as the celestial bodies, e.g., the planets, sun, moon, stars, space, or to earthly things such as wind, water, light, energy, etc., whom were all named in the pantheon with the God, Anu, who was the God of the heavens. On top of this, they named living beings Gods, who were called the Lord Gods on earth, which earlier had been known as the first kings. What one has to do, is to try to pick the truth out of the metaphor, by looking behind its veil, in order to study and understand these early stories. The stories are allegorical metaphors, poems, or songs. This reminds one of the old saying: “every tale has a grain of truth to it”.

The Zohar, the book of the Kabbalah, even explains the truth about the Torah being metaphorical, and states that things were purposely hidden. Some things are even hidden in the Zohar, itself, as a metaphor. Science steadfastly refuses to see it this way, even though much of this writing, such as the Zohar, still proves what science has found to be correct. Here, the Zohar described the Big Bang when it was published in the 13th century CE, though it was allegedly written in the 2nd century CE. Science only caught up with it in the 20th century, 700 years later! The Zohar states plainly, that Ein Soph, (the unknowable infinite creator of all, and the all of the universe itself), created the first tune, (resonance), which caused an explosion of light from a small nucleus, (the light of the explosion being defined as the different waves of the universe, which emanated outward, with the plasma, which are also known as the waters above the firmament by the ancients), which then, eventually, created the stars, galaxies, and all material things. If you are familiar with quantum physics, and have read the Zohar, then there is no denying this truth. The Zohar then states that the Alohim (Elohim, Igigi, or Anunnaki) was created, who created man in their image.

Section: 1, The Sumerian Gods.

The Sumerian Gods are mostly mythical. However, with some of these Lord Gods, the writers may have mixed the actions of living beings, lords and kings, with those of the stories of mythical Gods. The ones that I propose, as those who could be a mixture of both, would have been the four major Gods and Goddess of the Sumerians. Three of the four are hidden within Genesis, by metaphor. These three Gods are Anu (An), Enlil (Elil or El), Enki (Ea). Also, there is the Goddess, Ninmahand, Ninmah, or Ninhursag (Ninki), the Goddess of the Mountain, and last, the Goddess Ninti, who became Eve. A last possibility would be the Lord God, Geshtu-E, who was a minor God of intelligence. However, I think that they used Geshtu-E as a metaphor for adding intelligence to the human hybrid.

Anu was known as the Lord God of the heavens, but was said to have visited earth. Enlil, the son of Anu, was the Lord God of the air, and the chief Lord God on earth. He later became the Jewish National God, El, (taken from the Canaanite Elil or Ellil, where they dropped the ‘n’ in their dialect), who Abraham gave his allegiance to, at Ur. Enki, another son of Anu, and the half-brother of Enlil, was the Lord God of the waters, both salt and fresh, along with being the Lord God of intelligence. Ninmahand (Ninhursag or Ninki) was supposed to be the birth or womb Goddess, and the Goddess of fertility, also known as the Goddess of the Mountain. (Most all the Gods and Goddesses supposedly resided on top of a mountain, very similar to the Greek and Roman pantheon of Gods, and thus, it is said, caused the Ziggurat building, with a priest residing at the top, in a temple). Many others are named, and may or may not have referred to other minor deities or living beings, such as kings, whom were ruling, working in the temples, or doing manual labor on earth. These last were the Igigi. The Anunnaki are the princely offspring of the God, Anu. The Elohim are the earthly Lord Gods under the control of Enlil, or the Igigi, but some refer to the Elohim as the Anunnaki.

If the three Lord Gods and the two Lady Goddesses were a mixture of real God-kings and myth, then they could also have been an extra-terrestrial species, and close to humans in appearance, whom had came to earth to perform some type of work around the globe, at that time, (though there is no proof of these Gods being extra-terrestrials). They could also well have been an advanced human species, different from the earliest Sumerian inhabitants; Cro-Magnon man, from another place on earth. Genesis mentions Gold, but the Sumerians also mention that it was mined with other minerals and metals; for jewelry and ornamentation. The only work mentioned, during the Sumerian creation story, was the dredging of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, in order to remove a purplish mud or silt, and that humans were created to do this work. Every continent has stories of these Gods, (under differing names), coming to earth from the sky or by ship, for some reason, and while here, they created man to be servants for these Gods. Enki and Ninmah created man, (seven breeding pairs), in the Sumerian creation epic. Then, Enki educated man, Adamu (Adapa), along with the other six sages.

There is also a theory which states that each breeding pair meant each of the seven continents, or that each continent had a breeding program started by these Lord Gods. It could even be that they had seven pairs on seven continents, or that there was merely a breeding program per continent, with a Sage or King leading each. Some theorize that this was done over a natural catastrophe, which almost killed out human kind, due to what caused the ice cap to melt (over earths axis shifting), or before the ice cap was created. It is said that Einstein was told of a theoretical axis shift, and that he stated that it explained things. There is a circumferential line, such as an old equator, that does connect all the ancient sites around the globe, as if they all sat on the old equator.

Section: 2, Ancient Sumerian history.

According to the ancient creation story of the Sumerians, the Lord God Enki (Ea), and the birth Goddess, Ninmah (Ninhursag, Nintur, or Ninki), created man, the hybrid, on Enlil’s and Anu’s orders, to be servants used to “toil” for them, after they had been on earth working for 3600 years. This new man, or humans, was to be used as workers, in place of the other Lord Gods on earth, the Igigi, to dredge the Tigris and Euphrates rivers of the purplish mud silt that was in them. (Sorry, Sitchen believers, there was no gold mentioned by the ancients, which was being dredged and sent to the mythical planet of Nibiru. [See Article Note 1, bottom of page]). These early Lord Gods, (remember that term), needed a worker who could be trained and educated enough to perform these jobs. My personal opinion is, that what they found here, such as Cro-Magnon man, was too uneducable to use for the jobs at hand. They may not have been much away from being a dumb animal. The original creation story speaks of Enki and Ninmah, using a sacrificed minor Lord God’s blood, by the name of Geshtu-E, who was a minor Lord God of intelligence. The story recounts that they mixed this minor Lord God’s blood with the clay of the earth, and then spat upon it, to create man and woman.

The Lord God, Enki, and Lady Goddess, Ninmah, made seven breeding pairs, fourteen hybrid humans, seven male and seven female, to start the program with. The story is a metaphor, which shows them making this new man and woman, as if they were making mud bricks. The theory is that the clay is a metaphor for some being already here, such as Cro-Magnon man, that they could “mold” into what they needed. Here, the Lord Gods mixed their DNA, (blood), of the sacrificed God, with that ancestor, by impregnating or inseminating fourteen females, who were represented by those mud bricks. They gave birth to the first anatomically correct humans, who were hybrids that had forty-six chromosomes, such as the “dark headed people”. There is no other hominid with that number of chromosomes, such as the Ape or Chimp. Anthropologists  have tried to lay this on inbreeding, but the odds of that being the case are astronomical, as the resulting child would have had a high chance of being stillborn, or being born with very severe mental or physical disabilities, severe disease, or most likely being sterile with a very high death rate, and they know it.

Was modern humans created by some experiment, where they knew of insemination, such as in test tube babies where they could select the sex of the child (7 male and 7 female), or was it merely from having sex between two similar species? We will never know, I highly doubt. Anyhow, these new hybrid humans were created, and were sent to live on the land known as Edin (Eden).

Below, I quote the written words of the ancients:

The womb-goddesses were assembled
He [Enki] trod the clay in her presence;
She kept [Ninmah] reciting an incantation,
For Enki, staying in her presence, made her recite it.
When she had finished her incantation,
She pinched off fourteen pieces of clay,
And set seven pieces on the right,
Seven on the left.
Between them she put down a mud brick [sic]

and,

You have slaughtered a god together
With his personality
I have removed your heavy work
I have imposed your toil on man.…[sic]

In the clay, god and man
Shall be bound,
To a unity brought together;
So that to the end of days
The Flesh and the Soul
Which in a god have ripened –
That soul in a blood-kinship be bound. [sic]

At 2 Maccabees 2:17 it states: “God gave all the people the heritage, the kingdom, the priesthood, and the holiness.” That is pretty close to what is alluded to by the Sumerians, in that man’s heritage, his lineage, is from God, and the kingdom is Earth. In earlier writing, at Genesis 6:3, it states: “ADONAI said, “My Spirit will not live in human beings forever, for they too are flesh; therefore their life span is to be 120 years.” (21) Here, notice that it states “for they too are flesh” as if Adonai was also flesh, and that God’s spirit is our spirit, thus matching the Sumerians “that soul in a blood-kinship be bound”. Last, there is Genesis 1:26 that states: “And God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and they shall rule over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the heaven and over the animals and over all the earth and over all the creeping things that creep upon the earth.” (21) Here, you will note the plurality of “us” and “our” in “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness”. In one version of Genesis, Elohim is in place of God, which is plural, meaning Gods because the sentence is plural. Genesis was purposely written to hide the Mesopotamian origins of the creation story, because of the Jews conversion to Monotheism and the alleged story of Abraham’s sworn allegiance (covenant) to Enlil at Ur, though some hints of polytheism still appear in the scripture.

A problem arises, though, from breeding the species of the Lord Gods to the species of Cro-Magnon, or his progeny. Thus, by not being of the same direct species, but only of two similar species, the first new hybrids were probably born sterile. We know of this happening today, by breeding between similar species, such as a horse and ass or zebra, or a lion and tiger.

Evidently, these Lord Gods were creating these human hybrids for some time, (before the seven pairs), until finally, they crafted a pair that would be able to reproduce. That would be the Adam and Eve, who were then given a place with the others that the Lord Gods had created, in Edin (Eden). Thus, Anu called Adapa or Adamu (Adam), “the man child of man”, and the Sumerians called them the “dark haired people”. Also, you will notice, that the Lord Gods considered themselves, man. There are even hints of this in the Torah, that you’ll have noticed two paragraphs above.

Edin, (Edina or Eden), is a Sumerian word meaning grassland or plain, thus it could be anywhere in southern Mesopotamia. However, we can make an educated guess that the people of Edin were most likely living in either mud brick or reed homes, due to the Sumerian flood story. Edin was also said to be close to Eridu, and could have been at or around Lake Ḥammār. My personal opinion is, that it was either just outside of Eridu, where the plains and marshland meet, since Adapa was supposedly the king of Eridu in some Sumerian writing, or inside the city itself. Another possibility is that of a location south of Eridu, which would have been close to a water source, if the delta had not filled with silt as it is today. Also, before the flood, the Persian Gulf was not there, as it is now. However, the earliest flood stories are about flooding rivers, and not a great deluge that covered everything, nor the formation of the Persian Gulf. The low land, that became the gulf, contained a few lakes along with marshlands, since the Arabian Sea was low enough, around and before 14,000 BP (12,000 BCE), that it had not spilled through the Straight of Hormuz yet. See the maps below, about the locations and water levels. One theory about the flood, it is believed, happened when the sea level rose high enough to pour into the basin, through the Straight of Hormuz, which is now the Persian Gulf, or the second theory, which was merely severe river flooding from a seven day downpour. The ice cap melting with the sea rising was causing severe weather in these areas.

The Torah claims that Edin was where the rivers Pishon, Gihon, Tigris, and the Euphrates meet. However, as one can see, the Torah is as unreliable a source as they come, since many claim that the Gihon would be in Ethiopia, which would be an impossibility. Pishon, though, may have been a river that has now dried up, which may have flowed into the Tigris, or could have even been a canals name. The Gihon could have been a canal, also, as some names meant other places back then, and that may not even be the correct spelling. What they considered a river, then, as compared to now, may have been two different things. (15) Also, I have seen some give the Karun River, which runs into Iran, and the Wadi al Batin river which is now dry, (See Kuwait map below), as the two rivers in mention. The Wadi al Batin’s mouth is at Kuwait’s north border, which eventually runs south into Saudi Arabia. However, that creates a large area, and those rivers do not meet where the Euphrates and Tigris do, but there are long canals nearby.

It is written that “Adapa was the first of the seven sages of Eridu, who lived before the flood”.(5) Thus, he most likely would have been the first of seven fertile male humans, that were said to be educated by Enki.

The Jewish tale of Adam, being offered forbidden food, by Eve, though, is not anywhere in the ancient stories. It is a Jewish fabrication. In the Sumerian, Akkadian, and Babylonian story, it is written that Adapa (Adam) had been taught the magic of the Gods, by Enki (Ea). Here, I think that it literally means that he was educated by Enki. Adapa (Adam) had supposedly cursed the south wind, while fishing. His presence was then demanded by Anu over this, and Enki was to bring him to Anu. Enki told Adapa to accept the clothing and oil that he would be offered. He was to anoint himself in the oil, and to dress in the clothing. However, Enki warned Adapa to not eat the food and water that Anu would give him, as it would be poisoned, and it would kill him. When Adapa arrived, and was offered this, he took the clothing, and anointed himself with the oil. However, he turned down the food and drink. When Anu asked him why he did so, Adapa answered that he was warned not to, by Ea (Enki) his Lord, and said that Ea told him that he would die. Next, Anu asks Adapa if he did not want to live as an immortal. Here, I part from the other explanations about Anu’s actions, which, in my opinion, would mean that Adapa would have die, and release his spirit, to become immortal. The other two explanations are, that Enki was actually concerned for Adapa, which I believe, as Enki loved his creation, and the second explanation states that Enki tricked Adapa, so he would not become immortal, and keep man where he was supposed to be. Some go on to claim that Anu punished Enki, but that is unknowable, as the third tablet is fragmentary, and that is not readable. (11)

The knowledge that Adapa had learned, was that man would die one day, and how the world really was, including procreation. It was the metaphorical difference between being a dumb animal and a human. One can clearly see what Genesis hides away, by what is written here, in a much older story. Thus, in the Garden of Eden story, the Lord God Enki was the knowledge giver, represented by the Tree of Knowledge, with the symbolic serpent of knowledge in it. Anu would have been the “Lord God”, who would confront Adam and Eve, (where Eve was blamed for the whole debacle, by the early Jewish writers). This also flushes the Catholics claim of original sin right down the commode. God gave man free will, and thus, man makes his own sin. A babe is not born a sinner, since it has to mature until it understands the difference between right and wrong to sin, since sin is nothing but breaking the ancient written laws.

In Genesis, the Lord God told them to eat from the tree of life, but the serpent in the tree, (a metaphor for Enki and his knowledge), told Eve that they would not die that day, but would become educated, (and thence, they would learn that they would die naturally one day). It is the same story, rewritten as a metaphorical allegory, to hide the original pantheistic early Judaic/Sumerian story. When you read Genesis for what it really means, the Lord God, (Anu, God-king of the Elohim), wanted Adam and Eve to die at their time, ignorant of it happening one day, rather than to be educated about it and worry. That is the only possible explanation, as a human can not live forever. Thus, by eating from the tree of knowledge, they find out that they will die one day.

By Adapa’s time, Enki had supposedly put an age limit on mans life, by Enlil and the others agreement. The Eden story is about man, learning that he will die, because he became an educable species. He is not a dumb animal any longer. Thus, the separation of humans, (the new hybrid), from Cro-Magnon man and those who migrated from Africa.

Genesis 2:9, 15-17 KJV:

9. And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

and,

15. And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

16. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

17. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

The bible literalists have never understood the truth about Genesis, chapter 2, along with many other writings. This would be considered allegory and metaphor at its best.

Now, I continue with the story of Adapa and Anu (5):

No sooner had he [Adapa] uttered these words
Than South Wind’s wing was broken;
For seven days South Wind did not blow towards the land. (Dalley 185)

[Enki:] They will offer thee the food of death;
Do not eat it. The water of death they will offer thee;
Do not drink it. A garment they will offer thee;
Clothe thyself with it. Oil they will offer thee; anoint thyself with it. (Heidel 150)

[Anu:] Why did Ea disclose to wretched mankind
The ways of heaven and earth,
Give to them a heavy heart?
It was he who did it!
What can we do for him?
Fetch him the bread of (eternal) life and let him eat! (Dalley 187)

[Anu:] ‘Come, Adapa, why didn’t you eat? Why didn’t you drink?
Didn’t you want to be immortal? Alas for downtrodden people!’
‘(But) Ea my lord told me: “You mustn’t eat! You mustn’t drink!” (Dalley 187)

Anu commands that Adapa be sent back to earth and laughs at the cleverness of Ea [Enki]. Anu says, “Of the gods of heaven and earth, as many as there be, / Who ever gave such a command, / So as to make his own command exceed the command of Anu?” (Pritchard 80). The text comments that Adapa, who broke the South Wind’s wing, “the man child of man” (Sandars 172), has brought illness and disease “upon the bodies of men” (Heidel 153). The text ends with a prayer to Ninkarrak, the goddess of healing, to heal the sickness of men and women.[sic]

From Ancient Origins, (3) I quote the below:

Initially human beings were unable to reproduce on their own, but were later modified with the help of Enki and Ninki. Thus, Adapa [Adam] was created as a fully functional and independent human being. This ‘modification’ was done without the approval of Enki’s brother, Enlil, and a conflict between the gods began. Enlil became the adversary of man, and the Sumerian tablet mentions that men served gods and went through much hardship and suffering.

Adapa, with the help of Enki, ascended to Anu where he failed to answer a question about ‘the bread and water of life’. Opinions vary on the similarities between this creation story and the biblical story of Adam and Eve in Eden. [sic]

Again, we have a matching story of what supposedly happened in Edin, with Adam and Eve. Where the writer, above, found the idea about what they stated, that Adapa failed to answer the question, I do not know, but Adapa did answer Anu.

Some have it, that Enlil ejected Adapa from Edin, but if one reads the Tablet of Adapa, then one sees that Anu, not Enlil, sends Adapa back to earth and Edin, from heaven, (but does not eject him from Edin), to be with his own kind. Also, clothes were given to Adapa by two guards at Anu’s gate, (not Adam fashioning clothes for himself and Eve). Adapa (Adamu or Adam) was still in Edin, with his own people, and there were many. Honestly, where do some actually think that Cain and Abel’s wives came from; interbreeding between brother and sister?

Knowledge.

All the ancients used the serpent as a symbol for knowledge, and that symbol is found engraved at many of the ruins of ancient Mesopotamia, and elsewhere, over this. The symbol of a serpent was never meant to be any devil or anti-God. The Rod of Asclepius, which is supposedly the same as Aron’s Rod, has a snake on it, which signifies knowledge, and that same Rod of Asclepius is the sign of medicine, (not the US depiction of the Caduceus, though those serpents mean the same thing). Thus, the metaphorical allegory of Genesis is where the two Lord Gods are first combined into one, within the Torah, and thus, the Lord God always seems to contradict himself.  This is also where the definitions of God are changed, as the creator God, (Ainsoph or Ein Soph), created the universe and the Lord Gods, and then, the Lord Gods created modern humans. If you recall, I mentioned that one should remember that term. Lord Gods are the Gods on Earth.

caduceus

The two rods of wisdom and knowledge, the Rod of Asclepius at left, and the Caduceus at right. The two were confused during 1902, thus the Caduceus was used for medicine.

To finish on Adapa or Adamu (Adam), Joshua J. Mark wrote, that he thought that Anu was not trying to poison Adapa. However, Mr. Mark is not looking at it from a spiritual point of view, as eternal life, being immortal, comes when one dies, just as Enki warned. Thus, if Adapa wanted to live in the world that is now, as a human, then he should not eat or drink of what Anu offered. They always try to make Enki out to be the one in the wrong, when he was looking out for Adapa’s best interests, in my personal opinion.

Eve.

Next, we have Eve, who it is thought, comes from another metaphor about Enki, while supposedly in the lands of Dilmun, (the eastern littoral land of Arabia, from the vicinity of modern Kuwait to Bahrain, the island of Bahrain, and the island of Failaka, east of Kuwait), and with no Adapa or Adamu in the story. The Sumerians did not vilify or denigrate women as they were in Genesis and later. Women were looked upon as the birth mothers, and were to be respected, though that later changed. They did have dowries listed within the first laws, however, and slaves. Her creation story originates from a tale about Enki, Ninhursag (Ninki), and Isimud, though the story is about something totally different than creating Eve from Adam’s rib. Eve has traditionally been used for the name of the first woman, but she is not in the ancient Sumerian writings; she is solely from the Jewish. Eve, in Hebrew, is Ḥawwāh, meaning the “living one” or “source of life”.

In the original Sumerian story, (Enki and the Mother Goddess), which I shorten to get to the important parts, Ninki charged Enki with herding the wild animals and tending the garden, but Enki became interested in the garden, and Isimud, Enki’s messenger, selected eight plants and offered them to Enki, who ate them. This upset Ninki, and she cursed Enki, making him fall ill. Enki felt a pain in his rib, (which is a Sumerian pun, as the word “ti” means both rib and life). The other Lord Gods persuaded Ninki to quit causing Enki’s illness. Ninki, then, created a new goddess, who was named Ninti, (a name composed of “Nin“, for “lady”, and “ti“, for rib/living, which may be translated as “Lady of the Living” or “Lady of the Rib”), to cure Enki. (16) Thus, you will later see a story about Adamu and Ninti, which is the source for the Jewish Eve.

Adam is also associated with Lilith, which is purely a concoction of the Jews. In Hebrew, Lilith means night creature, and later, by looking at inscriptions on bowls and amulets from the 6th century BC, Lilith becomes a female demon. In the Alphabet of Ben Sira, (the Alphabet of Sirach), which dates between 700 and 1000 AD, Lilith is turned into Adam’s first wife. Thus, Lilith holds about as much water as does the tale of Eve; both stories leak like a sieve. The claims that were made, that Lilith originated from the story of Gilgamesh and the Arslan Tash amulets, have been found to be suspect at best. (17)

Moses and Noah.

The story of Sargon of Akkad, the king of Mesopotamia, from 2334 to 2279 BCE, has parallels to Moses. Atrahasis, (also known as Ziusudra, or Utanapishtim), has parallels to Noah. Sargon of Akkad’s parallel, is about the babe in the basket, which was found in the Euphrates by a man named Akki , and Atrahasis’ parallel is about building the ark and surviving the flood. Again, you can take this as you want, but the more ancient history wins out, as the Sumerian, Akkadian, and Babylonian stories are much older than the stories within the Jewish Torah. (19)

To date the time of the Lord Gods on earth, before the flood, and the time from the creation of modern man, the Sumerians wrote that modern, fertile, man was not created until 3600 years after they arrived. Next, we have to use the story of Atrahasis (Noah). Atrahasis, comes from a Babylonian story, which originated around 1700 BCE, but was passed on by the Akkadians, and thus, the Sumerians. Atrahasis was said to be the King of Shuruppak, and was listed on the Sumerian Kings List.

The story of Atrahasis, states that after 1,200 years of work, by modern man, Enlil becomes upset with man, and orders a plague to wipe out mankind. Enki advises Atrahasis how and whom to pray to, and the plague ends.

Another 1,200 years pass, and again, Enlil becomes upset with man, and causes a drought, along with causing infertility. Again, Enki advises Atrahasis about praying, and all becomes fine, drought wise.

Last, after another 1,200 years, Enlil becomes upset enough with man, that he wants to make sure to end all mankind, so he asks the other Gods to vote on sending a flood. They do, but Enki carefully skirts by his promise to not speak of the flood with the humans, by talking to the wall of Atrahasis’ reed hut. Of course, Atrahasis hears Enki through the wall, and overhears that he should build an ark, to save both mankind and the animals. Atrahasis does as he had heard, builds the ark, then collects his family and the animals. The Flood comes, and Atrahasis survives the seven day and night flood, thus saving humanity. Now, we have Enlil, who is steaming mad, plus, the flood is more than all the other Gods had bargained for. It goes on to state that: “Enlil spots the boat and is furious, knowing that only Enki could have been clever enough to come up with this new trick. Enki admits that he warned Atrahasis, “in defiance” of Enlil: “I made sure life was preserved” (Dalley 34) [sic]. (6) The text is fragmentary at this point, but apparently, Enki persuades Enlil to adopt a more humane approach for dealing with the population and noise problem. It does not explain how Atrahasis, (who became the Jewish Noah), managed to live for 3600+ years, since Enki was supposed to have put an age limit on all human life. Also, the earliest flood story was about the Euphrates river flooding, and killing those who lived in the lowlands of the valley.

Nibru.

Though the topic is not brought up much, Enlil was indeed harvesting the earths resources, such as differing woods, gems, stones, silver, gold, tin, copper, and the list goes on. It was not being sent to any mythical planet called Nibiru, but to Nibru, (Sumerian for Nippur), which is Enlil’s city. Those resources were being used for construction, jewelry, tools, gifts, the Goldsmiths, etc.

Time.

From the above, we can deduce this time span by adding the years: 3600 + 1200 + 1200 + 1200, or 7200 years, from the time of the arrival of the Lord Gods, to the time of the flood, thus their arrival should have been approximately 21,200 years ago, as of 2016, since the flood is thought to have occurred around 14,000 BP, if we use that as the flood and not just the rivers flooding over a seven day rain. Adapa (Adam or Adamu), and the six other modern human men (sages) that were created, (whom are the second creation of modern man, and were those whom could procreate), dates to approximately 17,600 years ago, as of 2016, by using the creation of the Persian Gulf as the flood. Cro-Magnon man goes back to approximately 10,000 to 45,000 years ago, according to science, and that falls within this time frame when they supposedly migrated out of Egypt into the Middle-East. (10)  I do believe that today’s religious literalists, claim that creation only happened around 6,000 years ago, which does not add up.

Radio carbon (Carbon-14) dating is only good for about 20,000 years into the past, as the amount of C-14 is so low in earliest samples, that background radiation interferes with the testing. Using this method to date remains past 20,000 years ago is not accurate, or may even be impossible in some circumstances.

Without rather special developmental work, it is not generally practicable to measure ages in excess of about twenty thousand years, because the radioactivity of the carbon becomes so slight that it is difficult to get an accurate measurement above background radiation.

Section: 3, What science says about the hominoid hybrid human.

What science has not introduced to the public is that modern man, the anatomically correct human, is a hybrid species, and that they have no idea about what we are crossed with, other than that one of our ancestors did become a hybrid who was known as Cro-Magnon man, or was their progeny. Neanderthal had also interbred with the Cro-Magnon man at some point, as far back as 100,000 years ago. It is also known that modern man appeared suddenly, only about 45,000 to 10,000 years ago. (10) They have called the Eve a female from Africa, the mother, but that is through mitochondrial DNA, and that is not where the name originates from.

Also, modern man has the oddity of 46 (44 autosomal and 2 sex), chromosomes, caused by a telomere-to-telomere fusion, (not an accident), and all the other hominoid species, which includes the Gorillas, Chimpanzees, Orangutan, etc, have differing numbers, such as the Rhesus monkey with 42, and the Gorilla, Chimpanzee, and Orangutan with 48, on either side of man. Modern man has many more genetic faults in their DNA than the Chimpanzee; around 4,000 in man (23) as compared to around 100 known in the apes. They claim that man and chimp have a 99% similarity in our DNA (King & Wilson), though another study by Jarrod Bailey states that when everything is taken into account, the percentage of similarity drops to only around 93.5-95%. (24)

Science told the public that a chromosome just broke off the DNA strand of the Chimpanzee (translocation), by accident, etc, and reattached itself, thus giving man its odd number.(3)(4)(13)  It most certainly did not, as the ends were a telomere to telomere fusion, which is a region of repetitive nucleotide sequences, at each end of a chromosome, that protects the end of the chromosome from deterioration or from fusion with neighboring chromosomes. There was no translocation or break. This means that there is an actual fusion of non-damaged chromosomes in humans, and not some broken-off, non-matching piece which attached itself back. They also made the claim that this happened over inbreeding, though the odds for that are astoundingly astronomical, especially for any young to have survived during that time. That means that we were not created by evolving from a 48 chromosome hominoid, where a piece of broken chromosome magically created our number. Their claim comes from the anthropologist’s bottle-neck theory, (8) which does not have the evidence to support it, and it is only a guess at best. Science has also alluded to hybridization occurring much earlier than it actually had, along with the claim of translocation in chromosome 2. The mention of humans being a hybrid kills any notion of being a direct descendant of apes. Below is a peer reviewed paper from Yale University, which debunks the theory about a translocation of broken chromosomes.(1)

Study 2-1

A second peer-reviewed paper, (2) tells us that the DNA clock can not be used, as many in science have claimed, to pinpoint or determine exactly when any split between ape and Cro-Magnon man’s ancestor happened. It also states plainly, that man is a hybrid. The paper said that it had found several discrepancies in their time theories and the deviation in percentage between the species. As an example, the paper stated a divergence date of 2,000,000 years, between human and gorilla, and 7,000,000 years between human and chimpanzee, though we anatomically modern hybrid humans do not match their claims.

DNA-Clock

The farthest back that science had been able to use bone, in order to extract usable and  testable DNA, is from a 78,000 year old fossil finger and two teeth, from Denisovan hominin, which did not show that modern man had directly evolved from the Neanderthals, but that they had interbred with them, in what is now Russia’s Siberia. (7) However, how this was possible is not stated, as Cro-Magnon man dates to around 45,000 years ago, at the earliest, when he supposedly migrated out of Egypt. (10) Also, the possibility of DNA contamination by science, during the test, can lead to erroneous results. That missing link still seems to allude them, since other hominids existed in Europe and the Middle-East at that time.

However, a new study from the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL), states that Cro-Magnon man had interbred with the Neanderthal as far back as 100,000 years ago, by looking at the Neanderthal DNA. Professor Adam Siepel stated that “the data so far refers to an event dating to around 47,000-65,000 years ago, around the time that [so-called] human populations emigrated from Africa. The event we found appears considerably older than that event.” Siepel also stated that “One very interesting thing about our finding is that it shows a signal of breeding in the ‘opposite’ direction from that already known,” Siepel notes. “That is, we show human DNA in a Neanderthal genome, rather than Neanderthal DNA in human genomes.” My words in brackets. Yes, it is very confusing for what they thought was fact, in that Cro-Magnon crossed into Europe, and interbred with what was there. The European Neanderthal had a larger brain than did those who were in Africa, with a slightly elongated skull. Also, the elongated head people found in Peru, had DNA that was traced back to the Middle-East and Europe, and were Caucasian who had red hair, and they were not Neanderthal. See my article below, where I quote Brien Forester’s DNA results. It is this hominid race who I believe interbred with those from Africa to create what is really modern man. The elongated skull hominids were known as the ancient God kings on almost every continent. The Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory study stated that the African group migrated into what is now Arabia and the Middle-East around 1,600 generations ago. By 1500 generations, they had moved into the Levant, including Mesopotamia, and as far north as Syrian and south east Turkey. 1600 generations is about 45,700 years ago. About 42,000 years ago, (1500 generations ago) would be when they interbred with the elongated skull people in the area of the Middle-East.

For instance, if the new modern man, who was a hybrid, only had his wife who was supposedly kin to him, or only his daughters to breed with, (incest), that would make the children that was born, highly susceptible to disease and infertility. Even if they made it to interbreed with their first cousins, which is not good, then there are many things that can go wrong, thus the new humans would have easily died out without a diverse gene pool, (such as the seven different breeding pairs). Below, I quote from the the article titled: Go Ahead, Kiss Your Cousin, 2003, from Discovery magazine. The problem with breeding the hybrids back into the Cro-Magnon population would have also caused problems.

In the Yorkshire city of Bradford, in England, for instance, a majority of the large Pakistani community can trace their origins to the village of Mirpur in Kashmir, which was inundated by a new dam in the 1960s. Cousin marriages have been customary in Kashmir for generations, and more than 85 percent of Bradford’s Pakistanis marry their cousins. Local doctors are seeing sharp spikes in the number of children with serious genetic disabilities, and each case is its own poignant tragedy. One couple was recently raising two apparently healthy children. Then, when they were 5 and 7, both were diagnosed with neural degenerative disease in the same week. The children are now slowly dying. Neural degenerative diseases are eight times more common in Bradford than in the rest of the United Kingdom.

The great hazard of inbreeding is that it can result in the unmasking of deleterious recessives, to use the clinical language of geneticists. Each of us carries an unknown number of genes—an individual typically has between five and seven—capable of killing our children or grandchildren. These so-called lethal recessives are associated with diseases like cystic fibrosis and sickle-cell anemia.

Most lethal genes never get expressed unless we inherit the recessive form of the gene from both our mother and father. But when both parents come from the same gene pool, their children are more likely to inherit two recessives.

Notice, that the story mentions five to seven lethal genes, but any other recessive gene that causes a disease, could have caused death thousands of years ago, as the story is speaking of what could kill us today with modern medicine helping out with the others.

Last, the Neanderthal dates to approximately 300,000 years ago, and we know that he was a good bit different than Cro-Magnon man, who is said to be the first modern human. The Neanderthal died out around 40,000 to perhaps 24,000 years ago. (9) Cro-Magnon man was supposedly from the time of 45,000 years ago, at the earliest, (now they state it is earlier, up to 100,000 years ago), to 10,000 years ago at the latest. (10) The hybrid would have been the Adapa, Adamu, or Adam, a hybrid, mixed with an unknown species.

Section: 4 Religious denial of recorded history and science.

Of course, those who are responsible for writing the Torah, and those of religions such as Christianity and Islam, do not want to believe this, and have said that Adapa and Adam were two different people, because of how their names were spelled. Yes, you read that correctly, that is their weak excuse, even though the two names mentioned have a parallel story, at many places. Also, they don’t mention that Atrahasis is the name of the person to build the ark in the original flood story, not Noah. So, I leave it to the reader to determine which is fact. This reminds me of the Pope’s claimed infallibility, which means that when he proclaims something as fact, it is, whether it is true or not.

Papal infallibility is a dogma of the Catholic Church that states that, in virtue of the promise of Jesus to Peter, the Pope is preserved from the possibility of error “When, in the exercise of his office as shepherd and teacher of all Christians, in virtue of his supreme apostolic authority, he defines a doctrine concerning faith or morals to be held by the whole Church. [sic]

One can thank Pope Pius IX for this proclamation, as he was the one who refused to allow the Italians to live in a democratic country, and claimed that the idea of free thought and speech, along with a secular education, was a sin. His successor, Pope Leo XIII, watched on, since he supported Pius IX, as Italy was finally taken back, by the people, to became a democratic nation, and the church was reduced to nothing but the Vatican. Pius IX and Leo XIII, were the very ones responsible for the final fall of the church, over the churches medieval idealism. Personally, I have to laugh every time I remember that self-righteous, “infallible”, Papal decree. That then reminds me of the succeeding Pope, Leo XIII’s encyclical, Humanum Genus, which makes me rightly angry. I highly doubt that Jesus would have allowed either of the two to be a priest, and would have probably treated them like the money changers in the Temple. However, I can not only disagree with just Catholicism, as Protestantism and Islam are no better, when it comes to believing fictional allegories as fact, and not seeing the real story hidden within. Ancient writing always trumps later writing, when those of later times took the ancient writing, and changed what it said, or its meaning, for their own benefit.

Section: 5 The Soul

There are two verses in the Tanakh, that clearly states what our soul is, and what will happen to it after we die.  It shows that the human soul is only a part of the whole, that of the creator of all, Ein Soph, God. This teaching goes back to the writings of the ancient Sumerians. (18)

Genesis 6:3, when living:

(3) ADONAI said, “My Spirit will not live in human beings forever, for they too are flesh; therefore their life span is to be 120 years.” (From the Complete Jewish Bible, a direct and correct Hebrew to English translation by the Jews).

(3) And the Lord said, “My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years”. (KJV translation).

Ecclesiastes 12:7, after death:

(7) The dust returns to earth, as it was, and the spirit returns to God, who gave it! (From the Complete Jewish Bible, a direct and correct Hebrew to English translation by the Jews).

(7) Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. (KJV translation).

Ancient Sumerians:

In the clay, god and man
Shall be bound,
To a unity brought together;
So that to the end of days
The Flesh and the Soul
Which in a god have ripened –
That soul in a blood-kinship be bound.

Section: 6 Conclusion

As one can clearly see, the Torah will not reveal the historical truth, but it will give you a fanciful allegory, which was written to hide polytheism, some five hundred plus years before Jesus the Nazarite was born. (19) It was as if the Rabbi’s, who were arriving back from Babylon, took all the old stories and combined them in a large cauldron to cook, and afterwards, used the result as ink to create the Torah. The creation of man, itself, is a shortened version, and they did a very good job in hiding the differences between God and the Lord Gods. It is like I stated earlier; they did a excellent job of using metaphor in an allegory.

What one must remember, about Genesis, is this; when God created the universe, he later created the Elohim. Here, God, Ein Soph, is the omnipotent God, the creator of all. When it speaks of God creating man, again, it is the Lord Gods, (the ones who Ein Soph created that came to earth), who then created modern man. Also, Anu, in Edin, is not God, the creator. He is the Lord God of the heavens, and over the Elohim. The first God spoken of, in the first opening words, is God, Ein Soph, the unknowable one, who created the big bang and the universe. Ein Soph then created those like Anu, and his supposed two wives.

Those Lord Gods deserve their due reverence, if they walked the earth, as they created we anatomically modern humans. They are responsible for converting us from a dumb animal in a field, to what we are today, with a conscious and high intellect (the soul). However, the creator of all, Ein Soph, is who due reverence is to always be payed, as Ein Soph is who the Lord Gods, including Anu, would bow to.

My Gods Theory.

Last, my theory on who these Lord Gods were, is that they were those with the elongated skulls, having two skull plates instead of three, and larger brains than we humans have. They have been found on several continents, and were known as both Gods and Kings. The Egyptian royalty are thought to have started from those directly related to the elongated skull people, such as the ancestors of the parents of King Tutankhamen, whom were Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV), 1353 to 1336 BC, and Nefertiti. Akhenaten, (who had three skull plates), tried to copy their look, by banding the skulls of their infants. One can clearly see the difference, when comparing the skulls between those like Akhenaten, and the ones with two plates. Not only is King Tut’s skull somewhat elongated, but his families were more so, but had normal size human brains. The major difference, between those who were banded and the natural elongated skulls, is the internal volume of the skull cavity. Those with the two skull plates, had a much larger brain due to a greater cranial volume. His stepmother, Nefertiti, was also shown with the snake on her headdress, as was the rest of the Egyptian royals, which is the symbol of knowledge. This was shown in their ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, where one can clearly see their undressed heads, their busts, and their actual skulls, which were found around Egypt, and are on display at Cairo.

They think that they have found Nefertiti’s burial chamber, and I would like to see her skull, minus any flesh.

One can visit Peru, and find the same two-plate skulls mentioned above, at Paracas. They were known as the Gods who came by ship, to Peru, and whom created and educated man. I would venture to say that they will be found elsewhere, such as Asia, if they ever allow archaeological studies as the other continents have. The skulls have been found in Mesopotamia, Egypt, France, Bolivia, and Peru.

Brien Forester found a seven to nine month old fetus, who is thought to have died at childbirth, possibly stillborn, with an elongated skull, which proves that there were children born with this anomaly, and not from head boarding or banding. A radiologist viewed it, and stated that the body and skull was normal except the elongated skull. The fetus body was found just outside Lake Titicaca at Pata Patani, Bolivia, in the museum: Museo y Cafeteria Comunitarios. Below is a photo of the fetus.

There have been statues depicting the elongated skull people in Israel and all around the ancient Sumerian cities. Some look normal, and some have a serpentine shaped face to signify them as those with knowledge. The royal bloodline of Egypt carried this look on by head banding or boarding it is thought, to make their skulls look as their ancestors, and used the Cobra on their headdress to show them as the knowledge holders. You will notice that the statues have large eyes like those skulls with the two skull plates.

The skulls in Paracas, Peru were auburn haired, which generally means that they would be caucasian. The American Indians mentioned these individuals in their history, and stated that they were of red hair, and caucasian. They also stated that they were larger in size; some with a height of 89 to 96 inches (7 to 8 feet). We know for a fact that the two-plate skulls had a larger brain cavity, when comparing the skulls with those with three skull plates, who had used head banding. The two-plate skulls had extra holes/sinuses in the rear top of the skull, where extra blood vessels and nerves would have exited to supply the top and back of the head. The two-plate skulls nasal sinuses were different, had different number of molars, and the ocular sockets were larger for the larger eyes.

peru_skull

Paracas Skull

Brien Forester stated that the DNA test results were in for the skulls in Paracas, and the bloodline leads back to the Middle-East (western Asia), and to the Europeans. However, these people were not Neanderthal, though they could have interbred with them. Notice the slight indention of the forehead that some have stated was from head banding, then compare that to the fetus’ skull above, and you will see a similar indention, which seems to indicate that there was no head banding done to these two-plate skulls. With this new DNA evidence, how did this elongated skull human show up in Peru before science claims that anyone from that area came to the Americas?

Where our elongated skull ancestors or creators and educators came from, (if it is them), are anyone’s guess, but that is who I think that those, such as The Lord God Enlil, the Lord God Enki, and the Goddess Ninki, were. They were the hominids living in the Levant and Mesopotamia around 45,000 years ago, when the Cro-Magnon migrated out of Egypt. Were they extra-terrestrial? Who knows, as I highly doubt that we will ever find the true facts. Maybe, they could be from the missing Atlantis? Nobody will ever know this either. With this, I will leave you with a quote from the Gospel of Thomas, verse 30, which was allegedly said by Jesus as a parable.

30) Where there are three Gods, they are Gods, where there are two or one, I am with them.

 So Mote It Be.

Anu agrees with Enlil, at a council held at Nippur. To look behind the metaphors, it seems as if a great storm may have it hit there, along with war, as the black-haired people were killed in the street by the axe. This would be why Abraham had sworn himself to worship Enlil, as his father, Terah, would have been in business in the city at the time, so they blame the occurrences on Enlil’s wrath. At the time, all wars and damaging storms were blamed upon the Gods.

Quote: “It also unclear whether the eṭemmu [soul] existed within the living body prior to death (and was thus an entity that separated from the body), or whether it only came into existence at the moment of physical death (and was thus an entity created by the transformation of some physical life-force). In either case, upon physical death the status of the deceased changed from awilu to eṭemmu. Death was therefore a transitionary stage during which humans were transformed from one state of existence to another”. There is not enough written in the ancient writings, to state factually about the soul, or the eṭemmu, to make a clear statement, but the writing does show the two states. It is important to note, that the Netherworld of the Sumerians, does not mean the Christian hell, but the world of the dead, wherever that be. Merriam-Webster’s gives for the Netherworld: “the world of the dead”. Most all biblical theological scholars take it that the soul is consciousness, and that it is within the body, when born.

Article Notes [Sitchin’s books]:

  1. I have read Sitchin’s book, The Lost Book of Enki, and have found that the book is not a direct translation of actual tablets, but of partial writing that he has seemed to stitch together, even using Genesis as a base, such as adding that the Elohim or Annunaki were searching for Gold to take back to Nibiru to save their atmosphere. Thus, one can not take any of the book to be credible, as he did not cite where each of these text fragments came from, nor what he added from other sources, such as the Torah. However, we have those of the other side, like Michael Heiser, (a biblical apologist, who is no better than Sitchin for facts), who tries to debunk ancient astronaut theories, and loves to use Wikipedia as his cited sources. He makes a claim that gold is hardly spoken of in the ancient Sumerian, Akkadian or Babylonian writings, but his own citation does cite that Enlil was having it mined. See notes 2, 3, 4, and 5, below. The Nibru is another name for the city, Nippur, Enlil’s city, and not the mythical planet, Nibiru. Nippur is about 75 to 80 miles northwest of Eridu. Last, according the the Sumerians, Enlil was having many natural resources harvested, and not just gold. They prized gold and lapis lazuli for jewelry, gilding, casting, etc., and used it as a money.
  2. Enki and the world order: c.1.1.3
    “I will admire its green cedars. Let the lands of Meluḫa, Magan and Dilmun look upon me, upon Enki. Let the Dilmun boats be loaded (?) with timber. Let the Magan boats be loaded sky-high. Let the magilum boats of Meluḫa transport gold and silver and bring them to Nibru [Nippur], for Enlil, king of all the lands.
  3. Enlil and Sud: c.1.2.2
    Ores (?) from Ḫarali, the faraway land, …… storehouses, ……, rock-crystal, gold, silver, ……, the yield of the uplands ……, heavy loads of them, were dispatched by Enlil toward Ereš. After the personal presents, the transported goods ……, Ninmaḫ and the minister ……. The dust from their march reached high into the sky like rain clouds. Enormous marriage gifts were being brought for Nanibgal to Ereš; the city was getting full inside and out, …… it was to be replete. The rest …… on the outlying roads ……. …… blue sky ……. (1 line missing) (2 lines fragmentary
  4. The cursing of Agade: c.2.1.5
    He ripped out its drain pipes, and all the rain went back to the heavens. He tore off its upper lintel and { the Land was deprived of its ornament } { (1 ms. has instead:) the ornament of the Land disappeared }. From its Gate from which Grain is never Diverted, he diverted grain, and the Land was deprived of grain. He struck the Gate of Well-Being with the pickaxe, and well-being was subverted in all the foreign lands. As if they were for great tracts of land with wide carp-filled waters, he cast large { spades } { (1 ms. has instead:) axes } to be used against the E-kur. The people could see the bedchamber, its room which knows no daylight. The Akkadians could look into the holy treasure chest of the gods. Though they had committed no sacrilege, its laḫama deities of the great pilasters standing at the temple were thrown into the fire by Naram-Suen. The cedar, cypress, juniper and boxwood, the woods of its giguna, were …… by him. He put its gold in containers and put its silver in leather bags. He filled the docks with its copper, as if it were a huge transport of grain. The silversmiths were re-shaping its silver, jewelers were re-shaping its precious stones, smiths were beating its copper. Large ships were moored at the temple, large ships were moored at Enlil’s temple and its possessions were taken away from the city, though they were not the goods of a plundered city. With the possessions being taken away from the city, good sense left Agade. As the ships { moved away from } { (some mss. have instead:) juddered } the docks, Agade’s { intelligence } { (1 ms. has instead:) sanctuary } was removed.
  5. A song of Inana and Dumuzid (Dumuzid-Inana J): c.4.08.10
    The little sister dwelling among them spoke to them (1 line unclear)”While we raise the song, you will lower the song.” …… she did not dwell among them ……. She dwelt in the …… of the eršema (?). She dwelt …… the eršema (?), of precious metal and lapis lazuli, of the goldsmith.

Who is God?

God, En Soph or Ein Soph, (the Infinite God), to me, is the creator of the universe. That should pretty much sit well with anyone reading this. However, that is not the God or Gods of the ancients, nor the one spoken of in most of the Torah, who supposedly created modern man. One will be surprised, when they find that Genesis is a metaphorical allegory, designed to hide the truth within, behind a veil. Even the name, God, En Soph, etc., is not the creator’s name, as nobody knows what that is. The Bible does give reference to En Soph, supposedly, as the I AM.

The story of Genesis was only written between 597 BCE to 539 BCE, or later, while the Jews were either still in captivity, at Babylon, or just after they made their way back to Judah. After the twelfth and thirteenth Jewish kings, (Ahab and his son), Judaism converted to monotheism, which was somewhere about 250 or so years, before their capture by the Babylonians and their king, Nebuchadnezzar. Though the Jews took up a National God, El, Elil, or Enlil, many still practiced polytheism for a while, before it died out, between Ahab’s time, and their capture or deportation. Other lands, in the Levant and Mesopotamia, did the same, by declaring a National God. While in Babylon, the Jews learned of combining several Gods’ stories into one, as the Babylonians had done, when they started worshiping a monotheistic National God, the creator of man. Here, the Babylonians mixed the stories of the Mesopotamian Gods of before, including Enki, into Marduk. Enki was supposedly Marduk’s father. The Jews did the same, in the Torah, by mixing the stories of Anu, Enlil, and Enki. That is why it seems that God is always contradicting himself.

To find out some of the truth about this, one must look to Khabbalism, which is studied by Rabbinical Judaism, and mainly, the book of Khabbalism, the Zohar, which is the Book of Light, Splendor, or Radiance. The Zohar is supposedly ancient, though some argue that it is not. It was supposedly written by Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, who lived around the 2nd century. It made an appearance in the 13th century, at Spain, and was published by a Jewish writer, named Moses de León. De León claimed the work to be from Shimon bar Yochai. There are 23 volumes of it. I’ll not argue either point, but it is very informative read, as to what the Rabbis study.

The Zohar explains the very first allegorical words of Genesis. To explain this, it says that God, En Soph, the creator of all, whom has no name, except for that which is invented by man, created the universe, and then created another God or Gods, who created man. This also corresponds to one of the four versions of Genesis, which mentions the Alhim or Elohim (usually plural), an ancient Mesopotamian belief. This was intentionally hidden, because of the Jews conversion to monotheism from polytheism. Also, while in captivity at Babylon, those who were held there, and their children, had overheard the ancient religious beliefs of not only the Babylonians, but also the Akkadians, and thus, the Sumerians. The Jews, the descendants of Abraham, who was from Ur in Mesopotamia, already had a similar belief, and the ancient religion, which spoke of the pantheon of Gods, such as Anu (An), Enlil, (Elil, or El), Enki (Ea), and their sister, Ninhursag (Ninki), had developed, and spread across the fertile crescent, starting at southern Mesopotamia, then up to what is now northern Iraq, next, west to what is now Syria, and then back south, as far as Egypt. Thus, it follows the upside down crescent shape of the farmable lands.

The Zohar states, that the first words of Genesis, are read in a different manner than shown in Genesis. Below, I quote from pages 86-87, from the book titled: The Sepher Ha-Zohar Or The Book Of Light, by Nurho de Manhar, 1900-1914. It is a Hebrew to English translation of the Zohar. My words in [brackets]:

“BRASHITH.” “In the beginning” was En Soph, the Divine, the self-existent infinite begin [being], without likeness or reflection, the incomprehensible, the unknowable One, the blessed and only Potentate, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. who only hath immortality, dwelling in Light which no man can approach unto, whom no man hath seen or can see, before whom the great archangel with face beneath his wings bends in lowly reverence and adoration, crying, “Holy! Holy! Holy! who art and was and evermore shall be.”

Tune [tone or resonance] had begun. Its great pendulum, whose beats are the ages, commenced to vibrate. The era of creation or manifestation had at last arrived. The nekuda reshima, primal point or nucleus, appeared. From it emanated and expanded the primary substance, the illimitable phosphorescent ether, of the nature of light, formless, colorless, being neither black nor green nor red. In it, latent yet potentially as in a mighty womb, lay the myriad prototypes and numberless forms of all created things as yet indiscernible, indistinguishable. By the secret and silent action of the divine will, from this primal luminous point radiated forth the vital life-giving spark which, pervading and operating in the great, enteric ocean of forms, became the soul of the universe, the fount and origin of all mundane life and motion and terrestrial existence, and in its nature and essence and secret operation remains ineffable, incomprehensible and indefinable. It has been conceived of as the divine Logos, the Word, and called Brashith, for the same was in the beginning with God. (All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life became the light of man.)

“They that understand (the secret doctrine) shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they who turn or lead many into the might path (of knowledge) as the stars forever and ever.” (Dan. xii. 3.) The word zohar (brightness) designates that nekuda reshima, the central ray or point of light which was the primal manifestation of the Divine, En Soph. From it proceeded vibrations which made luminous the illimitable ether, from which was formed the universe that became the glorious temple or palace of the great Unknown. It was in a manner the holy seed or germ that gave origin and birth to the world, and is occultly referred to in the words: “The holy seed shall be the substance thereof.” (Is. vi. 13.) Its analogue in nature is the silkworm which, unseen and in secret, elaborates and prepares a product that ultimately constitutes the material of the monarch’s purple robe of splendor. Furthermore, for the manifestation of the glory of the divine Unknown to humanity, making use of verbal terms and letters, it has built for it the name alhim, or lord, as evidenced in the mystic sense of brashith bara alhim. “In the beginning, alhim created”; or, as it should be rendered by rushith, [the root or beginning] that is the primal zohar, the origin of all words, “God created alhim.” The use of the word bara (created) need not excite surprise, for it occurs again in the words: “And he created alhim, the man, in his image.” (Gen. i. 27.) This zohar, their, denotes the mysterious. One called brashith because the beginning of all things. In answer to the desire of Moses to know the name of the divine Being, it was given AHIH ASHR AHIH, “I am that or who I am.” The sacred name AHIH is as a two-sided figure, whilst the name alhim is as a crown; and asher formed of the same letters as the word rash (head or crown) is a synonym of alhim and proceeds or comes forth from brashith. Whilst the primal zohar or divine ray of life was quiescent and unmanifested it was impossible for it to become known by any word or term whatsoever. But after operating in the boundless ether, the receptacle of all forms and prototypes of created things in the universe that was to be, then asher, representing the divine essence, took upon itself the form of a head or crown (rash) between the two AHIH’s of the divine appellation, AHIH asher AHIH. Observe now, that the word brashith is composed of rash (crown), synonym of asher, and beth (house or palace). Hence the occult signification or rendering of the words “Brashith bara Alhim” is this: When rash the divine germ from which emanated and expanded the boundless ether appeared, and this ether became differentiated into form and color giving rise to the universe or palace of the great king, then was created alhim the great secret fructifying principle of nature, which was and is as a point that gives rise to lines which produce surfaces, or as the letter yod I, whence proceed all the other letters of the alphabet. [sic]

En Soph created the first “tune” of creation, (resonance), which some say is when God plucked the string which caused the creation of all, and which science terms the “Big Bang.” Next, the text reads that “The nekuda reshima, primal point or nucleus, appeared. From it emanated and expanded the primary substance, the illimitable phosphorescent ether, of the nature of light, formless, colorless, being neither black nor green nor red.” That would be the “Big Bang“; all the waves or fields of the energy of the universe, light, gravity, matter, magnetism, consciousness, etc. This is referred to by the ancients as the waters above the firmament, and is where those waters mixed, creating reality and existence. It then goes on to reveal the most important words, to me, in the Zohar:

“brashith bara alhim”. “In the beginning, alhim created”; or, as it should be rendered by rushith [the root], that is the primal zohar, the origin of all words, “God created alhim.” The use of the word bara (created) need not excite surprise, for it occurs again in the words: “And he created alhim, the man, in his image.” (Gen. 1:27.)

Now, who was or were the Alhim (Elohim)? They were probably the first men, who came here, known as Lord Gods, and they created earthly man to be in their image. They were the ancient Gods and Kings of old, before the flood. They also deserve our reverence, as they created the human hybrid, who was able to be educated, and not be as that of a dumb animal, who were one half of their forebearers. Did you never wonder why, that science has never found the so-called missing link? They are blind to it, but they have published peer-reviewed papers, on the subject of we humans being a hybrid, about our DNA, and they freely admit, that they do not know what we are mixed with (1)(2)(3). I do not claim to know who they actually were, either.

According to the earliest cuneiform writings, that have been found and translated, and within those engravings on the clay tablets and cylinder seals, from ancient Sumeria, was the writing about the Mesopotamian pantheon of Gods. Here, we have Anu or An, the God of the Heavens, and his two wives, who created two Lord Gods and one Goddess, (remember that term, “Lord God,” as it is very important). The two Lord Gods were half-brothers, that came to earth, one before the other, Enki then Enlil. Ninki was the Goddess. Anu is where the duality of nature begins, along with the celestial waters above the firmament mixing. You will also have noticed, that duality stops at En Soph, God, the creator. Those celestial waters were given names of Gods, also, who were the ancestors of Anu. The Lord God, Enki, also known as Ea, the God of intelligence and the waters of the earth, supposedly came to earth first, with several of his fellow Lord Gods, followed later by Enlil, or El, the God of the air, the head deity of the Lord Gods on earth. It was written that Enlil was so powerful, in his aura, that he could hardly be looked upon by the other Lord Gods. The aura was described as a bright flame about him. Here, if you have read the Torah, you can find something very similar in it. You will also find something similar in the ancient religions of other nations, such as Hindu. Some may say that this points to sun, planet, and star worship, but I do not think so, for some cases. They only later associated what was considered living Gods (Kings), with the celestial bodies, in remembrance, but did not claim that they were them, at least at that time, I do not believe. Scholars also say, that these stars were the homes of the Gods. One will never know if these so-called God-Kings actually existed or not. What I can find, is that some early Kings, after death, were supposedly raised to a God like status, by the people, and they named some celestial body for them. Of course, this is not true for all the cases of the different Gods.

In the original Sumerian story of creation, it is written that the Alhim, (Elohim), or Igigi on Earth, (Lord Gods), complained about having to do manual labor, by dredging out the Tigris and Euphrates rivers for 3600 years (6). Some have estimated that they had been doing this, and other work, for several hundred-thousand years. From this, Enlil ordered Enki, and their sister, the Goddess Ninhursag (Ninki), and the birth Goddess, Ninmahand, to create man. Here, they supposedly used a slain or sacrificed Gods blood, (the Lord God, Geshtu-E, who was a minor Lord God of intelligence ) (6), and mixed that with the clay of the earth. Many theorize, that this means that they mixed their DNA, with some living being, already here, such as Neanderthal man. In other words, that clay was a living being that would be “moldable” as clay, to what they wanted. The story goes on to say, that they created seven breeding pairs, not one, and those fourteen new beings, seven men, and seven women, were birthed by females already here. From those seven couples, a breeding program would be undertaken, for these new hybrids.

The womb-goddesses were assembled
He [Enki] trod the clay in her presence;
She [Ninmahand] kept reciting an incantation,
For Enki, staying in her presence, made her recite it.
When she had finished her incantation,
She pinched off fourteen pieces of clay,
And set seven pieces on the right,
Seven on the left.
Between them she put down a mud brick [sic]

The new workers were given a place to live, named Edin (Eden), where some say is southeast of Enki’s city, Eridu. Some researchers believe, that Eden is located somewhere near the marshlands, or has been covered by the water of the gulf, that has risen since ancient times. That would be about 205 feet, over the last 10,000 years (62.5 meters) (5). Here, on the coast, you can still find the large reed huts of the indigenous people, today, as they were described in the Sumerian flood story. However, I believe that Edin could have been close to Eridu, as Adam, (Adamu), which was Adapa to the Sumerians, was the King of Eridu, which Enki was the God of. There are plains outside Eridu, and there is Lake Ḥammār just west of Eridu, which is marshland. It’s backwaters reach Eridu. There are also the remains of an ancient river and canal there.

The Persian Gulf, pre-flood, 14,000 BC and earlier. The flood was caused by an inrush of water from the Arabian Sea, through the straight, at some point around 14,000 BCE.

Many histories from ancient people all across the world, from every continent, who would have had no way to communicate or know of each others existence, have a similar creation  and flood story. They all say that these Gods, who came to earth, created and educated man. Who these Lord Gods actually were, and where they were from, I highly doubt that we will ever know the truth of. I have my own personal ideas and opinion as to who they were, but that is not a matter which I wish to debate here.

So, who is God, the En Soph, the creator of all? You look at him every day, day and night, everywhere you look, including at yourself. Jesus supposedly said in two parables, within the Gospel of Thomas, verses 30 and 77:

(30) Jesus said, “Where there are three gods, they are gods. Where there are two or one, I am with him.”

(77) Jesus said, “It is I who am the light which is above them all. It is I who am the all. From me did the all come forth, and unto me did the all extend. Split a piece of wood, and I am there. Lift up the stone, and you will find me there.”

There is also what God said, in Genesis 6:3:

(3) And the Lord said, “My spirit shall not always strive with [live in] man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.” KJV

(3) ADONAI said, “My Spirit will not live in human beings forever, for they too are flesh; therefore their life span is to be 120 years.” The Complete Jewish Bible, a direct and correct Hebrew to English translation.

The answer to the question of who or what God is, this great hidden truth, is as plain and simple as the nose on your own face. God is not only the maker of the universe, God is the universe, what is behind it, and is maybe creating others. God is the differing waves of energy that make and interact with every bit of matter, wave, particle, or light, and God is consciousness. God is no single star, sun, moon, planet, nor is God a man or a Lord God, since God is all of that combined. Thus, God is the all of nature, itself, where duality ends. Below is the metaphorical truth, written in Isaiah, which has a different meaning of God than that of the Torah.

Isaiah 45:5-9

5. I am the Lord, and there is no other; besides Me there is no God: I will strengthen you although you have not known Me.

6. In order that they know from the shining of the sun and from the west that there is no one besides Me; I am the Lord and there is no other.

7. Who forms light and creates darkness, Who makes peace and creates evil; I am the Lord, Who makes all these.

8. Cause the heavens above to drip, and let the skies pour down righteousness; let the earth open, and let salvation and righteousness be fruitful; let it cause them to sprout together; I, the Lord, have created it.

9. Woe to him who contends with his Creator, a potsherd among the potsherds of the earth, shall the clay say to its potter, “What do you make? And your work has no place (4).”

Thus, God is the all of nature, known and unknown, itself. God is not a he nor a she, as many have called En Soph (infinity). Many have called God Mother Nature, because everything has been created from nature. However, God is sexless and can not be labeled. God has no name, but what man has given En Soph. God is the I AM that I AM, the All, the Logos, the principle and creator of all universal space, time, light, matter, energy, order, creation, and knowledge, which are all parts of En Soph’s self, and simply put, En Soph is nature in its all.

Some may try to claim that this is deism, when that is far from fact. Deists claim that God does not interact or intercede with nature nor humanity. Deists also claim that they do not believe in “superstition” such as prayer, oaths to God, and the three main religions; Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Thus, Freemasonry is nothing similar to deism, nor has it ever taught such. (7) Sadly, several Christian church denominations have pushed the belief that Freemasonry is deistic, which is a blatant fabrication and fallacy.

Last, the reader may have a scientific and scholarly education and background in physics, especially quantum physics. One would then recognize Max Planck, and what he had started to discover in 1900, 600 years after the Zohar was published. One would then recognize who took up Planck’s work, Albert Einstein, and those after him. I only ask that you compare what was published in the 13th century, to what Planck and his peers, such as Einstein and those of today, have found by theory, scientific experiment, and mathematical calculation, even the big bang theory and the duality of nature that ends with the creator.

Then, “your work has no place”, where some claim that means handles. However, to me, it means that you’re a broken piece of pottery, among the other broken pieces, who have questioned God, and your “work” has no place with God, for questioning him about what he makes.

Freemasons and Wikipedia

A Word of Warning

It has come to my attention, from another brother Freemason, about what Wikipedia did to him, after he authored a factual historical article about AC de la Rive, for the English Wikipedia pages, along with a Wikipedia copy editor who helped him write and publish it. The problem, though, stems from another copy editor, who was never involved, and who mainly handles religious articles, with the moniker of Elizium23, though he is known as Robert Earl on YouTube and elsewhere, and he is a Catholic. If you’re thinking the same as I, then I would not be surprised. Our Masonic brother then made a comment about the untruthful article on Luciferian Doctrine, after this religious editor, Elizium23, tried to destroy the article on AC de la Rive, after it had been approved and published. The Luciferian Doctrine article stated that Luciferianism was part of Freemasonry, and that Freemasonry practiced it. Our fellow Freemason, had, of course, edited out the lies, but this editor, Elizium23, tried changing it back. It was later changed back to how our fellow Freemason edited it to be correct.

RE

First, one must consider that Wikipedia has changed, in that it requires an approval to post a new topic. However, older topics can still be edited. Here, not only did the brother Mason get an approval for his article, on AC de la Rive, which he had written, but it was also then copy edited by a Wikipedia copy editor, a very helpful editor, before it was posted to the public. Now, this is where this story gets interesting. Another Wikipedia editor, who was not involved, Elizium23, who mainly edits religious articles, took it upon himself to change that article, and butcher it to the point, that the truth about AC de la Rive would not be revealed, especially his involvement with Leo Taxil, and what AC de la Rive recanted in April 1897. Even though the French version of Wikipedia has most of the same text. This religious editor, Elizium23, then claimed it used “bombastic” language in the text, (one word, scathing), however all the Wikipedia religious articles are full of bombastic words and text, especially those that try to make the Pope look in a good light. That “bombastic text” merely stated that AC de la Rive wrote a “scathing” article about Leo Taxil, which he, in fact, did. That was his excuse to nearly delete and strip the entire article. Then, Elizium23, tried to delete the quoted “scathing” recantation or retraction, which was written by AC de la Rive, where he recanted and retracted everything about Leo Taxil’s writing, and Diana Vaughan. I wonder why? Next, this same editor, took it upon himself to edit any other article that was ever edited by our brother Mason, which he had agreements with from the other authors on those subjects, Masonic and not, to do so. Finally, this religious editor changed or reverted the Luciferian Doctrine article back to where it claimed that: “The Luciferian Doctrine is a set of religious beliefs that was held predominantly by initiates of Freemasonry who practice Luciferianism as a religion…” [sic]

Our brother Mason had it edited to read: “The Luciferian Doctrine is a set of religious beliefs that was alleged to be held predominantly by initiates of Freemasonry who allegedly practice Luciferianism as a religion. According to this set of beliefs, held primarily by those who follow the principles originating from the writings of Léo Taxil, Abel Clarin de la Rive, and some claim, Albert Pike, Lucifer is perceived as the main deity, alongside the traditional Judeo-Christian Adonai, forming a duotheism, or dichotomy,[1] between the two in opposition with one another. The exact origin of this doctrine, pertaining to Freemasonry, has been credited to both Leo Taxil and AC de la Rive, in writing, and proven to be a part of the Taxil hoax”. [sic] This is what it was last edited or reverted version reads, as edited by our brother Freemason, after Elizium23 had reverted to read as the first text quoted. If you think that something stinks about this, it rightly does, and it’s at Wikipedia.

The story gets worse, here, as our brother Freemason informed this editor, that the article on Luciferian Doctrine, could be seen as libelous by anyone else. This seemed to be exactly what this editor, Robert Earl, Elizium23, was looking for, as he filed a complaint, and it would seem, that if Wikipedia gets any hint that they might be sued over their dubious content, then they will expel the writer or outside editor from Wikipedia, whether or not they said that they would be the one to sue, or not. This editor, made sure to use the words “retract your threat“, in the talk page of the article on AC de la Rive, though our brother Mason never made one threat that he would do anything. He even removed the text, as asked. Our brother Mason has said that Wikipedia wanted him to apologize, for stating a fact, and that it would be a cold day in Hades before he would ever apologize for stating the truth, or apologize to a lying copy editor. He said that all one has to do, is go back into the Luciferian Doctrine articles changes, and one can clearly see that it plainly states that Freemasonry is a religion of lucifer.

The religious editor, Elizium23, placed the below quoted text, at the top of the page for AC de la Rive, even though the articles text agrees with the French Wikipedia page, and all the cited factual sources. It has been there since its last reversion by our brother Freemason.

A major contributor to this article appears to have a close connection with its subject. (August 2015)

The neutrality of this article is disputed. (August 2015)

Some of this article’s listed sources may not be reliable. (August 2015)

You will notice, that this religious editor, Elizium23, has placed each of these comment tags on the same day, and has tried to discredit factual source material. The only truthful thing, is that at one of the cited sources, amazingdiscoveries.org., was used to show both sides of the argument, anti-Mason against Mason, though the website is not considered factual by any Freemason, he did give their point of view.  However, Freemasonry doesn’t consider the muck and drivel from Edith Starr Miller or William Guy Carr, reliable, which the anti-Masons crow about being true, though both books have been debunked by university scholars, and he gave them as another point of view. The “neutrality” is disputed, because a Freemason authored an article about a non-Freemason, who wrote fallacies about Freemasonry, and was directly involved with the Taxil Hoax. Also, I wonder if Elizium23, ever tells anyone that he has a “close connection” to any religious subject at hand, that he is editing, as our brother Freemason found out.

Here’s what Wikipedia states now. They do not want anyone, with any experience on a subject, to write an article about anything that they are experienced in. They tell you that you should use a “paid writer”, and that they have a list with the names of them. Funny that, when they have a devout Catholic, Elizium23, aka Robert Earl, writing and copy editing religious articles, on Wikipedia, about any religion, and he must think himself to be a scholar about Freemasonry and factual history, too. It is like allowing a fox to run the chicken house.

I did donate to Wikipedia, but I will not give another red cent to that company, until they get rid of copy editors who are clearly biased about what they are allowed to edit. They should be under much greater scrutiny, than an outside editor or author. Especially after the editing stunts that this one pulled on our brother Freemason.
