So in my first few posts of this series I discussed the Albino characteristics, the RH factor, and the confusing blood types . . . I next got into “giant” origins according to the ancient texts, that we have sought to discredit as myth, because it didn’t make sense to our science and understanding of the time.
I am here to encourage Christians (and any who see historical value in the ancient texts) that there is reality in the Bible. Sadly, we have been misreading and mistranslating a few things though. This isn’t new. All through the enlightenment we have had to change our reading of the Bible, realizing how it was coming from ignorance of the culture, or their ignorance of science and genetics.
In my last post I got into the history and culture from which the Bible came, and using the Apocrapha and other ancient texts, I gave a little light on some old words. Some words like: “God”, and where he/they came from. I touched on the evolution of “Satan” from a verb to a noun. “Angels” and their mistranslation, as well as the “fallen Angels” deemed later to be Demons. That brought us to “Sons” or “children” of God, discussing some of the notoriously most difficult verses in the Bible, in Genesis 6.
Ancient civilizations were all thought to have believed in “gods”. Which, as they all came from the same word, all speaking of those who came down from the sky, generally in flying chariots, or flaming chariots, coming out of the same ancient civilization that founded the rest, it seems logical that they were just generations of the same family passing down what they saw.
“The Egyptians, Chaldeans, Mayans, Aztecs, Aryans, Syrians, and the inhabitants of the ancient Indian Tibet have all recorded the arrival of “gods from the heavens” in their ancient writing. Considering their similarities to the Bible, when you throw out the uneducated presumptions we’ve already dealt with, it seems we might get some clues from these other texts that predated the Bible even!”
“The best place to get answers about who these gods were is probably from the oldest known records written by the oldest known civilization, the Sumerians. (Their culture dates back to 6000 BC!)
The Sumerians documented the arrival of “gods” who they called “ilu”, from another world, who brought with them advanced knowledge.” [Sounds like in Enoch. . .]
The Sumerians, as opposed to the later cultures were more descriptive of these “ilu”, calling them the “Anunnaki” which translates into “Those who from Heaven to Earth Came.” Sound familiar? The Anunnaki were also known to play “god” roles and control civilizations through worship or to “work for.”
I believe there has been a simple misunderstanding about these “gods” of ancient cultures though, rooted in a mis-translation of the word used to describe what mainstream linguists say means “god”.
While the word “ilu” has been commonly translated as “god” because it made the most sense to the ancient worldview, “ilu” has a different translation: “tall men.”
Despite this overall acceptance of this “mistake” of translation by linguists, they continue to translate “ilu” to mean “gods,” as any other meaning wouldn’t have made sense to their worldview. . .until now.”
“Later, the Akkadian, Babylonians, and the Assyrian culture and language evolved from the Sumerian Civilization and brought with them the word “ilu”. It is generally presumed that the “god” word of the Bible evolved from both the word, and the god(s) that were passed down from those earlier texts and cultures.
The Akkadian cuneiform tablets speak extensively about the affairs of the “ilu” gods, and in every depiction/illustration where “ilu” and ordinary people are shown side by side the ilu are much taller. . .”
So, we could presume that these “gods” could have easily have been the fathers (the “Angels” or “sons of God”) that mated with the humans, creating the mistranslated giants in all the Ancient texts! Or were they simply taller than the natives and/or was their size depicting something, as pictures often were symbolic, like wings meant those who flew.
“The ancient stories tell us a lot about these “gods”. . . The first humans could have been a result of manipulation with the gods’ genes and maybe other life forms here on Earth already.
Many stories in all the ancient texts, especially pre-Christian texts, tell about a race of gods that “from the Heavens to the Earth Came.” And they “created man in their own image”. Looking back, these “gods” who all lived long lives (around 1,000 years) had superior knowledge and technology, performing apparent “miracles”. They easily would have been looked up to as gods. [Even though we believe it is better translated as tall men”]
So it’s really no surprise that the meaning morphed into a giant or supernatural being. . .as they were intuitive, wise, advanced, and very different. . .
[These gods, according to the many texts were] “flying about in lighted ships in the sky [sometimes called flaming chariots] and shooting fire or lightning from them [on select occasions] , creating ear-shattering booms and temporary blindness.” [Sometimes the flaming chariots even took people away, never to be seen again!]
The humans watched as these “gods” built massive and glorious houses and created beautiful cities for themselves. (Usually with help from their slaves. . .)
Many questions have sprung up about who these original “ilu” were?
These “people” have been variously identified with just about every mythical being after them that you can imagine, leading most scholars to automatically place the whole texts they come from in the realm of myth or allegory.
Interestingly though that all of these ancient creatures of myth from the giants and demigods, to even the genetically manipulated half man half animals were all white skinned, blond or red headed. . .so, based on my last posts, we can presume they were the original RH- blooded, so called “Albinos”, non natives.
Interestingly, these ilu or “gods” made genetically manipulated creations that, though in their “image” and “good”, were nonetheless depicted shorter, with a rounder head. . .possibly due to age and evolution on another planet.
The mingling of the human species, with these sons of “tall men” (God) happened in other places too. . thus the different cultures’ giants mating with women and creating demi-gods or partially “tall men.” Thus, all these “myths” would have been all talking about the same thing as the Bible.
We could look at them all as myth then, as many Atheists do, or we could look to see what the ancients might have meant by what they were all said to have seen. . .
Could “the Lord”, or “gods”, or the fathers of the “Angels” in every culture of the world have been just a depiction of the first human like people on earth?
It seems with many ancient texts handing down rules for not intermarrying with other “nations”, (better described as species or races now) that the first human creations were taught to keep their bloodlines pure. Could they look like a somewhat tall, RH-, possibly originally O blood type, blue and green eyed, white skin and red and blond headed race of “people”, like all the “gods”?
To this day, blood that has the alien RH – factor seems nearly absent in the oldest genetics on earth. Accordingly the creationist scientists believe “Adam wouldn’t have been a white boy, having been created from the dust of the earth/ground. Eve on the other hand, being created from his rib, would have been pale since that would be the shade afforded bone from which she was derived.”
