Noah born 2948 BC, Flood 2348 BC, Noah dies 1998 BC
According to the biblical account, Noah lived for 600 years during the height of the antediluvian civilization that had become so became so horrific that God had to wipe it out in order to preserve humanity from the devastation of the gods.
3150 BC – 2613 BC Sumerian Cuneiform is used in Mesopotamia, the land between the two rivers Tigris and Euphrates, both before and after the flood. The oldest extant documents of religious beliefs are preserved from water damage via baked clay tablets.
The Pyramid Texts are, like the Sumerian texts, waterproofed, in this case by being carved on the subterranean walls and sarcophagi of royal pyramids.
Providing validity of their reports, both the Sumerians and Egyptians record the history of the gods who came from the cosmos and established the original civilization resurrected by the Egyptians after the flood.
The Turin Canon lists many of the pharaohs of ancient Egypt, including a number of gods. It was composed during the reign of Ramesses II by Theban scribes and so it presents the Theban political viewpoint. For example, it begins the Eleventh Dynasty with the founders of the Theban line rather than with the later reign of Monthotep II.

2494–2345 BC Early Dynastic Period in Egypt In Egypt, the god Heka was a supernatural force who had created the world and the gods, and allowed those gods to engage in their activities. Ancient Egyptians believed that their gods had prevailed over the forces of chaos during the creation of the world, and now relied upon humanity’s help to keep chaos at bay with ma’at (harmony and balance).
This sounds remarkably like current day growing ecological awareness of the need to keep human activities in balance with each other and nature to prevent doomsday.
2150–2000 BC The earliest surviving versions of the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh—originally titled He who Saw the Deep [a reference to immense quantities of waters covering the world] (Sha naqba īmuru) or Surpassing All Other Kings (Shūtur eli sharrī) – written on baked clay tablets.
The rapidity with which all the elements of civilization are achieved indicates that this is a renaissance of civilization after an apocalyptic event. Documentation of this catastrophic event survives in caches of waterproofed baked clay tablets, suggesting forethought against water damage by flooding.
All societies at this time held that, after a flood, the gods and their hybrid offspring demigods no longer walked the earth. The disembodied spirit of the god possessed the human king’s body, therefore the king was also the high priest – the mediator between the people and their gods – assisted by priests of his choosing. Religious adherence to the unseen gods’ demands was government in all societies.
Sumerian (𒅴𒂠Emegir “native tongue“) is the language of ancient Sumer. It is believed to be a language isolate – a language that is unrelated to any others…one that has not been demonstrated to descend from an ancestor common with any other language…
Caution is required when speaking of extinct languages as language isolates. Despite their great age, Sumerian and Elamite can be safely classified as isolates, as the languages are well enough documented that, if modern relatives existed, they would be recognizably related…
Many extinct languages and living languages today are very poorly attested, and the fact that they cannot be linked to other languages may be a reflection of our poor knowledge of them. Hattic, Gutian, and Kassite are all considered unclassified languages, but their status is disputed by a minority of linguists. Many extinct languages of the Americas such as Cayuse and Majena may likewise have been isolates. Several unclassified languages could also be language isolates, but linguists cannot be sure of this without sufficient evidence.
A stone tablet that dates back to sixth century BC appears to be inscribed with the only true image of the Tower of Babel we’ve ever seen. This is substantial evidence that the tower actually existed…
[W]hat is written about the tower’s appearance and construction matches with the story told in the Bible…
The inscription describes a Mesopotamian-style construction, and the illustration shows that the tower had seven tiers. It also relays that King Nebuchadnezzar II, the most famous ruler in Mesopotamia, was responsible for the tower’s construction.
The text on the tablet reads, “from the Upper Sea, which is the Mediterranean, to the Lower Sea, which is the Persian Gulf, the far-flung lands and the teeming people of the habitations, I mobilized in order to construct this building…”
In the biblical story of the tower, it states that multitudes of languages led to the tower’s eventual demise.
Another explanation for the origin of ancestral Sumerian is found in world-wide accounts of the gods bringing language in the context of civilization and high standards of living to their human supporters, who in return enriched the lives of the gods.
There have been many accounts of the origin of language in the world’s mythologies…and the reasons behind the diversity in languages today…
Recurring themes in the myths of language dispersal are floods and catastrophes…Punishment by a god or gods for perceived wrongdoing on the part of man is another recurring theme…
[T]he origins of language and languages are generally subsumed or footnoted into larger creation myths…
This concept is supported by noting that the historic use of the language was to assist a small cadre of elite rulers in the enslavement of the mass of humanity.
The oldest cuneiform texts date from the so-called Proto [early formulation of a later higher quality] Literate Period. The period is dated c. 3200 to c. 2800 B.C., mainly on the basis of the thickness of archaeological layers; calibrated C14 datings sugest that 3400 to 3000 B.C. may be more corect (cf.[Nines 987:613)
During this phase, the script was purely ideographic, and only used for accounting purposes and in word lists presumably employed in teaching. It is best not understood as an attempt to render language but rather as a representation of fixed bureaucratic procedures in equally fixed formats: [Emphases added.] The fairly strict ordering of signs in the tables does not correspond to the temporal order of spoken words, even though, evidently, signs stand for operations or items which must have had a spoken name. The early tablets present no compelling internal evidence concerning the identity of the language in which scribes would explain their content (since the script does not render spoken language tablets could not be “read” any more than, say, the tables in the Statistical Yearbok).
Sounds very much like an Excel spreadsheet for keeping business and financial records.
The Sumerian language of the third millennium BC was later used by Babylonian and Assyrian scribes as a cross-cultural common language. Just as Classical Latin survives in contemporary medical, scientific and legal terminology but only as words incorporated into English sentences, likewise only Sumerian words survived. And these devolved into an increasingly rudimentary pictograph form. This can be easily recognized as facilitating the use of the triangular stylus impressed into clary, akin to the devolution of English to facilitate thumbs texting messages on small cellphone keyboards today.
This should cue us in to the possibility that the first known examples of Sumerian language are not the early stages of what would become an improved system of communication, but rather the few surviving traces of a high language as complex as high German, or Greek which did not originally use clay as writing material.
This idea has been explored in depth by a linguist.
Since, however, the Sumerians had come to be regarded as the Fathers of Civilization, their linguistic isolation was more than a merely scientific puzzle; they had to have come from somewhere (else), from some Urheimat, and the Sumerian language had to belong to a glorious language family with appurtenance. Which Urheimat, family and race: this is the »Sumerian Problem«…
The linguistic situation in the region was characterized in the third millenium by the presence of numerous different languages. We can thus safely presume that the rulers of the Uruk state and the immigrants spoke different languages, and that even the immigrants had no common language. If to this we add the evidence offered by glyphic and by accounting texts for a »plantation economy« we must conclude that Uruk V to IV has been the ideal base for the development, first of a pidgin and next of a creole, all conditions corresponding apparently, to those which were listed by S.W.Mintz in his description of the particular historical circumstances which produced the Caribean creoles:
- the repeopling of empty lands;
- by more than two different groups;
- one of which was smaller and socially dominant; and the other of which was larger, socially subordinate, and included
- native speakers of two or more languages; under conditions in which the dominant groups initiates the speaking of
- pidgin that becomes common to both groups that is, conditions under which
- the dominant group, at least, is bilingual, and the subordinate group multilingual; and there is no established linguistic continum including both the pidgin and the native language of the dominant group; and
- the subordinate group cannot maintain its original languages, either because the numbers of speakers of any one of its languages are insufficient, or because social conditions militate against such perpetuation, or for both reasons…
[T]he main lexifier language for a resulting South Iraqi creole can safely be assumed to have been the language of the Uruk rulers, while the most important substrate languages will have been those of [the ruled]…
The many features shared by Sumerian and creoles at large… suggest that [Sumerian] as we know it had recently gone through an even stronger phase of destabilization than anything which has hit the participants in the Indo-Aryan/Dravidian Bund during the latest millenium. What can be said about the late prehistory of Sumerian also points to a stage of (rather rapidly changing and thus fairly unstable) analyticity, and thus to a more radical wiping-out of morphology [forms of words]…[Emphasis added.]
From the familiar myths and legends of ancient Greece to the less well-known legends of ancient Egypt, Babylon, and even the Americas and Pacific Islands, from the monuments of Stonehenge and Giza to the pyramids of Teotihuacan and the Xi’an, the evidence is overwhelming that an advanced ancient people who understood the size and shape of the earth, sophisticated aspects of astronomy, mathematical concepts such as phi and pi, and the principles of blue-water ocean navigation existed more than four thousand years ago, and then largely disappeared, leaving centuries of relative ignorance in their wake.
If this is true, it is important to us to understand it and to learn from it, standing as we do at a place of great technological advancement and assuming as we often do that things will just keep getting better and that progress is man’s natural birthright. If we don’t know real truth about [ancient civilized] mankind’s past [disappearance], we cannot even begin to ask why it happened, or explore the best ways to prevent it from happening again.
It is also evident that whatever the cause of their disappearance, the ancients were very careful to preserve and encode the fact of their existence and the knowledge they felt was most important in a way that would withstand millennia of chaos. It would be wise for us to be aware of the ways that they achieved this feat.
…astronomical events that are crucial to understanding the clues that the ancients embedded in their mythology, their art, and their megalithic structures…
the legends of ancient Sumer, Babylon, Egypt, and Greece, the Cult of Mithras, the pre-Aztec monuments of Teotihuacan, the Bighorn Medicine Wheel in Wyoming, the surviving legends of the Cherokee and Hopi, and geological evidence from around the world to support a theory that stands in stark contrast to the conventional paradigm of geology and anthropology.
We either throw out thousands of years of inter-cultural received wisdom and ignore the evidence of ancient highly advanced technology, unexplainable by Evolution’s paradigm of human history, or we admit we don’t know everything, that powerful regimes are untrustworthy, and so keep our minds open to unimagined possibilities.
Highly educated devotee of ancient cultures Peter Tompkins, in his preface to Mysteries of the Mexican Pyramids, enthuses that
The identical features found in pyramids all around the world supports the Egyptian assertion that they did not invent civilization, but were taught by a hyper dimensional highly advanced civilization to the best of their available human and technological resources. The expertise required to build the megalithic pyramids and align them precisely with the stars rules out purely human effort at the time they were built, and the later pyramidal structures fall far beneath the quality of the first structures.
The Great Pyramid is an unrivalled example of precision-engineering on a massive scale. After the Great Pyramid was built another engineering and construction feat of similar proportions and daunting challenges was not attempted until the Hoover Dam was built in the early 1930s.
How could those incredible ancient Egyptian’s have pulled it off? They didn’t. There is no evidence, in Egypt, of any period of stone building that forms a progression of learning the requisite skills to build the Great Pyramid…
- “One look at the pyramidal structures of Yucatan and Chiapas…is enough to show that they…function as markers for the…transit [movement] …of heavenly bodies;”
- “the ancients accurately measured the size of the earth, mapped it”;
- “The ancient civilizations attached great importance to numbers as an exact language in which physical and spiritual ideals could be expressed and preserved; hence, they built their numbers into buildings”
- which “contain, both in their dimensions and their relative geographical positions, the whole vocabulary of the sacred language of the past”
- “Written across the face of the country in letters of earth and stone the cosmic knowledge of the ancient world is now within reach.”
Better Call Saul [a prequel to Breaking Bad]…a character study focused on the increasingly unscrupulous lawyer Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk)..the circumstances Jimmy creates and/or unwittingly finds himself in…convey there’s something rotten taking over…
One of the pleasures of Better Call Saul is the extent to which watching it is like looking backward with 20/20 hindsight…
The same can be said of Genesis 1-6. We should recognize it as a prequel to the biblical account of the rest of human history. One of the pleasures, or, more appropriately given the Bible is not entertainment but a warning of the real doomsday scenario – one of the advantages of looking at Genesis 1-6 is having 20/20 vision of how it all ends.
“And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth…for it repenteth me that I have made them.” (Genesis 6:12-13, 7)
“But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be…a new heaven and a new earth…and there was no more sea…He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Matthew 24:37, Revelation 21:7-8)
Since the history of Noah’s days can be uncovered, this puts the Bible’s prophetic value light years ahead of later obtuse prophets like Nostradamus.
In the critical context of judgment we need to know precisely what is meant by “all flesh had corrupted his way.” If you turn to Bible commentaries to find the answer, you will be assaulted with a barrage of opinions based on the limited historical and scientific knowledge at the time of the commentator.
But if we analyze the biblical narrative as simply as a book report like we learned in elementary school , we will realize that the first six chapters establish:
- The setting: the heavens and earth.
- The characters: all the hosts / various classifications of inhabitants of the heavens and the earth – immortal hyperdimensional beings and mortal humans and animals.
- The problem or plot: corruption.
- The climax or resolution to the problem: destruction of the corrupt and a fresh start.
“And God created
- every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind
- every winged fowl after his kind:..
And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply
- the beast of the earth after his kind,
- and cattle after their kind,
- and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind:
God created man in his own image, God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth…And God saw everything that he had made and, behold, it was very good.” (Genesis 1:21-31)
But by the time of the flood, everything wasn’t good any longer. Just as everything else God did during creation was opposed by his adversaries, so was reproduction, which turned all flesh from good to “corrupt, ruined.”
“Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God….[in contrast to all the types of] flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth….and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth…And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous [right-acting] before me in this generation.” (Genesis 6-7:1)
The statement that Noah’s family being right-eous, not corrupted, as well the next statement separating out some clean animals from the rest of the herd, establishes the fact that all flesh refers to all types of flesh, not every single individual. This is important, so just file that thought away.
- Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female:
- and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.” (Genesis 7:1-2)
This categorization is assumed by some to refer to the animals allowed, or not, for sacrifice, since only clean animals were sacrificed at the end of the flood. However, the text does not state that the reason Noah brought more was to experience acceptable losses when sacrificing.
“And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And the LORD smelled a sweet savour.” (Genesis 8:20-21)
At this point in the data-driven analysis, only a correlation, not a causation between Noah bringing more clean than unclean animals on the ark and using them for sacrifices has been documented.
Causation is an action or occurrence that can cause another. The result of an action is always predictable, providing a clear relation between them which can be established with certainty…
Correlation is an action or occurrence that can be linked to another. The action does not always result to another action or occurrence but you can see that there is a relationship between them.
At the same time that Noah sacrificed only clean animals to the LORD, all animals including unclean were allowed for consumption.
“Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.” (Genesis 9:1-3)
Since this is contrary to Mosaic law, we can’t backdate Mosaic law to Noah’s time.
“This is the law…
- make a difference between the unclean and the clean…
- between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten…
- ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing…which I have separated from you as unclean.
And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.” (Leviticus 11:46-47, 20:25-26)
“Good, clean,” results in God being pleased and taking a rest, contrasted with “not good, unclean, corrupted” resulting in God changing his attitude, i.e. being very unhappy, and taking corrective action.
The same Hebrew word for clean is also translated pure when used to describe gold that has not been alloyed with another metal, by which we can induce that not pure indicates the presence of other substance.
The passage above in Leviticus informs us that incorporating unclean things makes the soul “abominable” and “unholy.”
“The…word of the LORD…which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him…in that day [of judgment], saith the LORD of hosts…I will cause the…unclean spirit to pass out of the land.” (Zechariah 12:1, 13:2)
This Old Testament Hebrew text corroborates the the many New Testament Greek passages linking “unclean” with evil spirits judged and banished by Yeshua and his anointed disciples.
“And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out,” (Matthew 10:1)
In the English Bible the word abominable / abomination is translated as “loathesome” or “detestable”. But that just describes God’s reaction, it doesn’t explain why. What caused the intense, spontaneous gut reaction?
what made The Blair Witch Project so groundbreaking is that…the filmmakers didn’t use special effects to scare audiences; instead they had genuine reactions from a cast that didn’t know what awaited them in the woods.
In contrast to The Blair Witch Project, the Bible informs. Although the Bible was written at a time when knowledge of all things spiritual was contemporary and so well-known as to not need explanation, fortunately there remains a trail of evidence for what has since become ancient and obscure to us.
The first mention of abomination – a chief clue in any mystery – associates it with the well-known cultural practice of not sharing a meal with people of another religion.
“And they set on for him [Joseph] by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians, which did eat with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that is an abomination unto the Egyptians.” (Gen 43:32)
Do you seriously think that all that is meant here by abomination is that the Egyptians found sharing a dining room with Hebrews repulsive? No.
Eating incorporates the substance being eaten into the body of the eater. We recognize the physical effects of eating foods that lead to either increased physical strength and health, or obesity, malnutrition sickness and death. We recognize the emotional effects of consuming “comfort foods”, alcohol and other substances. We know that eating maintains the mysterious life force.
And, while lost to contemporary materialistic culture, going beyond the four dimensions of humanity foods incorporate the spiritual likeness of God and the gods. Religious practitioners throughout time acknowledge the process of consuming foods for the purpose of incorporating the essence of God or the god(s) into the eater. This makes the consumer an extension of the god. His own volition purged he has become the doer of a spirit’s bidding. A zombie.
This is a clear correlation to the making of God’s sons.
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20)
The religious connotation of this word abomination is set in stone by Moses when he refers to the intended sacrifice by the Israelites as the abomination of the Egyptians.
“And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land. And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to the Lord our God: lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us?” (Ex 8:25-26)
What is Moses saying here? One scholarly source interprets the abomination as the act of sacrificing an animal that was sacred to Egyptians. However, the biblical text states that the abomination is the animal itself. This was a lamb. Bear in mind that “lamb” does not define a cute poodle-y little thing you can cuddle in your arms. The official term “lamb” defines a male sheep in the first year, which for sheep is up to full grown. For the Israelites, the sheep represented and temporarily substituted for the Lamb of God, the “seed of the woman” promised to all humanity since the beginning of time.
“Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” (John 1:29)
For the Egyptians, the sheep represented Khnum, one of the principal and oldest gods of Egypt, worshipped as the creator of mankind.
Pop quiz. Who is this god imitating? The Lamb of God! This makes him…the antithesis of The Promised One / Messiah / Christ, AKA antichrist, one of the many different cultural representations of the seed of the serpent.
So is Moses so bold as to call Pharaoh’s god disgusting to Pharaoh’s face? Hardly. If anything, Moses is acknowledging that the Egyptians, like many other groups, find the Israelite’s God abhorrent!
A major difference between the religions is that the representative of the God of Israel was sacrificed to save the lives and well-being of his people, while the god of Egypt – in Pharaoh – demanded sacrifices of his people to maintain his life and status.
I think that one reason it is so hard for people to place their faith in the Lamb of God is because his claims are so unbelievable in light of the little experience we humans have of sacrificial love. A god who offers benefits in exchange for sacrifices made to him is so much easier to trust to come through on, at least some of, his promises, even when he is not 100% faithful.
But there is a far more significant meaning to abomination than simply disgusting / toebah or even profaning the sacred that I expect both Pharaoh and Moses, raised in the royal household, understood and accepted at face value. No disrespect intended, none taken, just a fact.
Khnum was not represented simply by the sheep that the Israelites were planning to sacrifice. His image was a combination sheep and human. (Fourth from the left in the image below.)
Most of the Egyptian gods were represented as combination animal and human. Are these god portrayed in this way because the original artists were attempting to portray abstract concepts like fertility, as interpreted by determinedly materialistic modern anthropologists doing their best to eliminate spirituality from history? Or was it something more concrete?
When abomination is translated from the Hebrew word Shiqqutẓ it has a very proscribed meaning. In each of its 28 occurrences it refers to manifestations of the gods in physical form, and invariably involves sex. The following passage is just one example.
“So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom. And all the earth sought to Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart…But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites: Of the nations concerning which the Lord said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love. And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart. For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father. For Solomon went after Ashtoreth and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and went not fully after the Lord, as did David his father. Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.
And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods. And the Lord was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the Lord God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice,” (I Ki 10:23-24, 11:1-9)
“Thus saith the Lord God; Are ye polluted after the manner of your fathers? and commit ye whoredom after their abominations? For when ye offer your gifts, when ye make your sons to pass through the fire, ye pollute yourselves with all your idols, even unto this day:” (Eze 20:30-31)
Notice the hybrid features of the Canaanite gods as with the Egyptian.
Could these images actually represent chimeras – individuals who truly, biologically, are a mixture of two genetically distinct types of cells? An indication that this might be the case is reported in numerous myths and by many secular historians.
Were they passing the spirits of the gods into familiar animalistic bodies?
For owing to these three things came the flood upon the earth, namely, owing to the fornication wherein the Watchers against the law of their ordinances went a whoring after the daughters of men, and took themselves wives of all which they chose: and they made the beginning of uncleanness. And they begat sons the Naphidim, and they were all unlike, and they devoured one another: and the Giants slew the Naphil, and the Naphil slew the Eljo, and the Eljo mankind, and one man another. And every one sold himself to work iniquity and to shed much blood, and the earth was filled with iniquity. And after this they sinned against the beasts and birds, and all that moves and walks on the earth: and much blood was shed on the earth, and every imagination and desire of men imagined vanity and evil continually. (Jubilees 7:21-24)
The amatory adventures of the Roman gods under the outward semblance of animals cannot but be regarded with the suspicion that an undercurrent of truth runs through the fable, when the general laxity of morals of that age is taken into account. Jupiter enjoyed Europa under the form of a bull; Asterie, whom he afterwards changed into a quail, he ravished under the shape of an eagle; and Leda lent herself to his embraces whilst he was disguised as a swan. He changed himself into a speckled serpent to have connection with Deois (Proserpine). As a satyr (half man, half goat), he impregnated Antiope with twin offspring. He changed himself into fire, or, according to some, into an eagle, to seduce Aegina; under the semblance of a shower of gold he deceived Danaë; in the shape of her husband Amphitryon he begat Hercules on Alcmene; as a shepherd he lay with Mnemosyne; and as a cloud embraced Io, whom he afterwards changed into a cow. Neptune, transformed into a fierce bull, raped Canace; he changed Theophane into a sheep and himself into a ram, and begat on her the ram with the golden fleece. As a horse he had connection with the goddess Ceres, who bore to him the steed Arion. He lay with Medusa (who, according to some, was the mother of the horse Pegasus by him) under the form of a bird; and with Melantho, as a dolphin. As the river Enipeus he committed violence upon Iphimedeia, and by her was the father of the giants Otus and Ephialtes. Saturn begat the centaur (half man, half horse) Chiron on Phillyra whilst he assumed the appearance of a horse; Phoebus wore the wings of a hawk at one time, at another the skin of a lion. Liber deceived Erigone in a fictitious bunch of grapes, and many more examples could be added to the list.
According to Pliny, Semiramis [incestuous mother/wife of Nimrod and “Mother of Harlots” who instituted what became world-wide paganism at Babylon] prostituted herself to her horse; and Herodotus speaks of a goat having indecent and public communication with an Egyptian woman. Strabo and Plutarch both confirm this statement. The punishment of bestiality set out in Leviticus shows that the vice was practised by both sexes amongst the Jews. Pausanius mentions Aristodama, the mother of Aratus, as having had intercourse with a serpent, and the mother of the great Scipio was said to have conceived by a serpent. Such was the case also with Olympias, the mother of Alexander, who was taught by her that he was a God, and who in return deified her. Venette says that there is nothing more common in Egypt than that young women have intercourse with bucks [male sheep and goats]. Plutarch mentions the case of a woman who submitted to a crocodile; and Sonnini also states that Egyptians were known to have connection with the female crocodile. Vergil refers to bestiality with goats. Plutarch quotes two examples of men having offspring, the one by a she-ass, the other by a mare. Antique monuments representing men copulating with goats (caprae) bear striking testimony to the historian’s veracity; and the Chinese are notorious for their misuse of ducks and geese.
Hani Miletski argues that the abundance of information from around the world leaves no doubt that bestiality has been an “integral part of human life” since the dawn of civilization…Cave drawings from the stone age…Paintings and carvings of human-animal sexual acts in ancient religious temples…
Bestiality was practiced in Babylonia, the ancient Empire in Mesopotamia…during the Spring Fertility Rites of Babylon, dogs and other animals were used for constant orgy for seven days and seven nights. The Book of Leviticus describes bestiality as being very widespread in the country of Canaan, which is perhaps why Hebrews later considered sexual relations with animals a way of worshipping other gods (similar to homosexuality) and put the bestialist and animal to death…
Ancient Greeks and Ancient Egyptians both incorporated bestiality into their religious practices. Ancient Egyptians engaged in “worshipful bestiality” with the Apis bull in Memphis, Egypt, and with goats at the Temple of Mendes. Similarly, Ancient Greeks engaged in bestiality during religious celebrations and festivals…several Egyptian kings and queens had a reputation for engaging in bestiality, and Egyptian men were known to have sexual intercourse with cattle, other large domesticated animals, crocodiles, and goats…
Although bestiality was particularly widespread among the shepherds, Roman women were also known to keep snakes for sexual purposes. Bestiality flourished as a public spectacle in ancient Rome, where the rape of women (and sometimes men) by animals were used to amuse the audience at the Colosseum and Circus Maximus. Similar to Ancient Egyptian leaders, many Roman emperors and their wives were known to engage in bestiality or to enjoy watching others engage in bestiality, including Emperor Tiberius and his wife Julia, Claudius, Nero, Constantine the Great, Theodora, and Empress Irene…
Arab men believed that intercourse with animals increased virility, cured diseases, and enlarged their penises. Likewise, among the Muslims in Morocco, fathers encouraged sons to practice sexual intercourse with donkeys to make their penises grow. Some nomad tribes in Africa incorporated intercourse with cattle as a ritual of passage for young males. Adolescent males in Ibo (Nigerian tribe), for example, had to “successfully” copulate with specially selected sheep in front of a circle of elders. Among other tribes, it was custom for hunters to engage in sexual acts with freshly slain animals while they were still warm. This custom was seen among the Yoruba (tribe in Nigeria), Plains Indians, the Canadian Indian tribe of the Saulteaux, and the Crow Indians. As for the Native Americans and Eskimos, bestiality varied from tribe to tribe, but was largely socially acceptable and went unpunished among Navajo Indians, Crow Indians, Hopi Indians, Sioux, Apache, Plains Indians, the Canadian Indian tribe of the Saulteaux, as well as the Kupfer and Copper Eskimos.
Gods in animal form are actually consistent with the limited information we have on God’s angels. We have already seen the connection between serpents / dragons and seraphim. Cherubim and other heavenly beings described with composite human-animal features bear such striking similarities to the mythical creatures in pagan religions that it is only reasonable to speculate that some of their kind were among the fallen angels, or that the fallen angels were trying to recreate certain types of spirit beings. In the following sketches of actual ancient carvings of cherubim, notice how the Assyrians, Babylonians and Syrians all depict them guarding the tree of life, just as described in Genesis 3, and also depict the same zoomorphic features described in both Ezekiel and Revelation – man, calf, eagle, and lion.
“…they had the hands of a man under their wings…the face of a man, and the face of a lion, and the face of an ox…also had the face of an eagle…This is the living creature that I saw under the God of Israel by the river of Chebar…they were the cherubims.” (Eze 1:10, 10:10-20)
“…and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts [i.e. unknown species of living creature, similar to but different from Ezekiel’s description of cherubim]…And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him…(Rev 4:6-8)
Popular media has saturated society with the belief that this is a wonderful addition to the world. In the context of war, of course. Some people, however, do realize the inherently unrealistic premise of powerful warriors selflessly serving the weak.
We can further prove this sexual connection by tracking the same Hebrew word translated here as “corrupt” – שָׁחַת through its translations into English as spilled, or coitus interruptus to prevent God’s planned parenthood
“And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother. And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he שָׁחַת spilled / destroyed it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him.” (Gen 38-7-10)
When we put all the pieces together for the term “corrupt”, they form the big picture and reveal the puzzle. The corruption from Noah’s day that was so vile as to demand utter destruction is defined for us as mortal humans having sex with hyper dimensional immortal angels.
“the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly…And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous…I will…שָׁחַת destroy it…And there came two angels to Sodom at even…the men of Sodom compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them…“Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven…God שָׁחַת destroyed the cities of the plain.” (Genesis 18:20-21, 28, 19:1-5, 24-29)
This passage on Sodom is quoted practically verbatim by Isaiah, and unquestionably clarified in the New Testament.
“bring them forth…that we may know that ye are gods:” (Isaiah 41:22-23)
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” (Jude 6-7)
This should not come as a shock.
The practice and purpose of merging one’s identity with another’s is easily recognized in behaviors and images expressing solidarity in fashion, sports, and ethnicity.
Humans who want to break the glass ceiling of their four dimensional limits to expand into the hyper dimensional state must connect to the spirit dimension in some way. The only alternative for those who do not want to be limited to God’s righteous unselfish behavior is to instead merge their identity with unrighteous self indulgent hyper dimensional beings.
Author Vivianne Crowley says in Wicca: The Old Religion in the New Age…”the sacred marriage is outwardly a marriage of two people, but inwardly it is a marriage of the two within one person.”
Ritual sex…can be used to raise energy, create magical power, or find a sense of spiritual communion with a partner…In Her Hidden Children, author Chas Clifton writes, “Many Pagan religions include invocation and possession by their gods. Wicca, in particular, extends that possession to sexual acts…uniting in their bodies the cosmic and the most personal energies of planetary life.
“Sermons from the Mound”, an unmistakable sexual play on words, describes the inevitable convergence of sexual depravity with false gods.
Every religious tradition has rules—spoken and unspoken—around sexuality, and sacred texts come into play as these rules are navigated in dating and marriage. What does your faith tradition really say about the meaning of our sexuality and sexual activity? What role does sex play in the life of the spirit?…
“The Charge of the Goddess,” penned by Wiccan priestess Doreen Valiente (1922-1999), is a piece of liturgy so powerful that its influence has reached far outside Wicca into spiritual feminism, the sex-positive community, and contemporary Paganism as a whole. When used in ritual, the Charge is spoken by a priestess who is embodying the presence of the Goddess. She says:
And ye shall be free from slavery; and as a sign that ye are really free, ye shall be naked in your rites…
I just have to break in here and point out “as a sign that ye are really free ye shall be naked.” WHAT A LIE! My spirit and emotions are so hyper charged by this utterly outrageous distortion of reality I’m having trouble breathing and its a good thing I haven’t eaten yet this morning.
Hello!!! Sex trade??!! In the course of my career I’ve taught and advocated for awareness of trafficking of adolescents forced into depraved prostitution. Try this on for a reality check, and I’m not linking to the website below for obvious reasons that I don’t want my computer flooded with offers to immerse myself in the filth that so many find themselves addicted to. Freedom? No. Bondage.

Many Wiccans and witches believe that all things contain a primal energy or vital life force that moves within and among them. This energy is most easily experienced through sexual activity, especially when it is raised with spiritual intent. Through their sexual intimacy, practitioners can participate in a primal moment of creation: a moment when two divine forces or beings—imagined as a many-gendered God/dess making love with her mirror reflection; or a lunar Goddess and a solar God; or a genderless yin and yang, nothing and something—communed together in an erotic union whose vibrations continue to animate the universe.
Obviously that is claiming to be the alternative to the Singularity.
This and the following article give the logical reason why promiscuous sex is an irreducible part of any attempt at increasing one’s spiritual life energy / power apart from the irreducible Singularity.
Energy must be consumed from another living being.
The Sexual Vampire: is a bare bones straight out, call it like it is, definition. It is an understanding of the base of the creature and what they are about. There are still many different types of sexual vampire, that part never changes, but what doesn’t change is that at the base of it, sex has to be involved, either in action, intention or thought…
Regardless of the means in which you engage in it, whether purely physical, or totally psychological, the end result is that some element of sexual energy has to be involved….There are basically two categories…Biological and Energy Feeders…
Coitus feeding: This is literally the physical act of having sexual intercourse…there are those who find anything other than the very act itself, isn’t doing anything…
Organic Fluid Feeding: Well this gets to the sticky heated mess of it all. The basics of it are that you need the sexual fluids, whether that be in the form of semen, sexually excited blood, menstrual or vaginal fluids, these feeders claim that without it, they cannot sustain themselves appropriately.
Flirts don’t have to actually have sexual contact in any way, merely evoke a sexual response in others. This doesn’t have to be a response focused on their own form. A ‘flirt’ can be in a situation where they draw another to a strip club, or watch a sexy movie, or for that matter sexualize another in a manner that draws those hints of sexual desire from others.
The ‘Tease’…is the one who makes you wiggle in your seat. They tend to end up in your dreams, or haunting your desire on some evening when you are alone and don’t have to account for your secret desires.
The Tempter: doesn’t just want you turned on, they want you to explore dark places. They combine sexual fears and fantasy, to lead people to places they might never explore on their own…These can be the most dangerous however. Simply because one has a fantasy, doesn’t mean it should be explored. A smart ‘Tempter’ understands that if they draw someone into something that is psychologically unhealthy…you no longer feel excited and a little scared, but actually reach into self loathing.
Speaking of sexual exploitation…
–National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Policy director,
Paul Ettelbrick (Kurtz, 2003)
Michelangelo Signorile describes the campaign “to fight for same-sex marriage and its benefits and then, once granted, redefine the institution completely–to demand the right to marry not as a way of adhering to society’s moral codes, but rather to…radically alter an archaic institution.”...
study showed that 28 percent of homosexual males had had sexual encounters with one thousand or more partners. Furthermore, 79 percent said more than half of their sex partners were strangers…Almost half of the white homosexual males…said that they had had at least 500 different sexual partners during the course of their homosexual careers,”…
Since part of the compulsion of homosexuality seems to be a need on the part of the homophile to “absorb” masculinity from his sexual partners, [emphasis added] he must be constantly on the lookout for [new partners].
Gay life is most typical and works best when sexual contacts are impersonal and even anonymous…far more preoccupied with sex than heterosexuals are, and far more likely to think of a good sex life as many partners under many exciting circumstances….
It must be remembered that in the gay world the only real criterion of value is physical attractiveness…The young homosexual will find that his homosexual brothers usually only care for him as a sexual object. Although they may invite him out to dinner and give him a place to stay, when they have satisfied their sexual interest in him, they will likely forget about his existence and his own personal needs [emphasis added]…
Childhood sexual abuse is a subject that has received much attention in recent years. Twenty-eight to 33% of women and 12 to 18% of men were victims of childhood or adolescent sexual abuse (Roland, 2002, as cited in Long, Burnett, & Thomas, 2006). Sexual abuse that does not include touch and other types of sexual abuse are reported less often, which means this number of individuals who have been sexually abused in their childhood may actually be greater (Maltz, 2002)…
Childhood sexual abuse has been correlated with higher levels of depression, guilt, shame, self-blame, eating disorders, somatic concerns, anxiety, dissociative patterns, repression, denial, sexual problems, and relationship problems…
A study found that women survivors reported significantly more medical concerns than did people who have not experienced sexual abuse…often related to pelvic pain, gastrointestinal problems, headaches, and difficulty swallowing (Ratican, 1992).
Stress and anxiety are often long-term effects of childhood sexual abuse…A study compared the posttraumatic stress symptoms in Vietnam veterans and adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The study revealed that childhood sexual abuse is traumatizing and can result in symptoms comparable to symptoms from war-related trauma (McNew & Abell, 1995).

More than a decade ago [say 2005], when the reported number was less than a million, the proliferation of the explicit imagery had already reached a crisis point. Tech companies, law enforcement agencies and legislators in Washington responded, committing to new measures meant to rein in the scourge. Landmark legislation passed in 2008.
Yet the explosion in detected content kept growing — exponentially.
An investigation by The New York Times found an insatiable criminal underworld that had exploited the flawed and insufficient efforts to contain it…many tech companies failed to adequately police sexual abuse imagery on their platforms, or failed to cooperate sufficiently with the authorities when they found it.
Law enforcement agencies devoted to the problem were left understaffed and underfunded, even as they were asked to handle far larger caseloads.
The Justice Department, given a major role by Congress, neglected even to write mandatory monitoring reports, nor did it appoint a senior executive-level official to lead a crackdown…
A paper recently published [by] the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, described a system at “a breaking point,” with reports of abusive images “exceeding the capabilities of independent clearinghouses and law enforcement to take action.” It suggested that future advancements in machine learning might be the only way to catch up with the criminals.
In 1998, there were over 3,000 reports of child sexual abuse imagery.
Just over a decade later, yearly reports soared past 100,000.
In 2014, that number surpassed 1 million for the first time.
Last year , there were 18.4 million, more than one-third of the total ever reported. Those reports included over 45 million images and videos flagged as child sexual abuse…
The surge in criminal activity on the dark web accounted for only a fraction of the 18.4 million reports of abuse last year. That number originates almost entirely with tech companies based in the United States. The companies have known for years that their platforms were being co-opted by predators, but many of them essentially looked the other way…it was clear more than two decades ago that new technologies had created the biggest boon for pedophiles since the Polaroid camera…
In interviews, victims across the United States described in heart-wrenching detail how their lives had been upended by the abuse. Children, raped by relatives and strangers alike, being told it was normal… Many of the survivors and their families said their view of humanity had been inextricably changed by the crimes…“I don’t really know how to deal with it,” said one woman who, at age 11, had been filmed being sexually assaulted by her father. “You’re just trying to feel O.K. and not let something like this define your whole life…
law enforcement agencies across the country said they were often besieged. Some have managed their online workload by focusing on imagery depicting the youngest victims.
“We go home and think, ‘Good grief, the fact that we have to prioritize by age is just really disturbing,’”
“the most gruesome and violent images of child pornography…”
“The predominant sound is the child screaming and crying,..”
images of very young children being sexually abused, and in increasingly extreme and violent forms.
“Historically, you would never have gone to a black market shop and asked, ‘I want real hard-core with 3-year-olds,’”
In the course of diagnostic assessments, I routinely and casually ask about abuse. Almost invariably my patients just as casually relate their experiences. Unless one is aware of how prolific abuse is in our Christian country, one could assume all these patients are just attention seeking. No. Abuse really is pandemic.
Amid the reports of rape cases and sexual predation, a new study has found that sex addiction is on the rise.This new finding revealed by researchers at the University of Minnesota states that 10 per cent of men and seven percent of women are in a constant battle to control their sexual urge and thoughts.
The research which was carried out in America shows that the number of people struggling with difficult-to-control urges is creating concern for psychologists.
Many have attributed the rise to access to explicit content online and casual sex.
There was a time when all aspects of society were grounded in worship of the gods who controlled all aspects of life and death. Therefore, all members of society were required to subject themselves to the gods’ reproductive and non-reproductive sexually aberrant acts to meet the gods’ objectives. Before romanticizing sexual “freedom”, consider the terrible sexual trauma, the incestuous psychological damage, the danger from becoming prey to groups energizing themselves through blood practices like torture and murder AND THAT THESE PRACTICES HAVE INCREASED BEYOND THE CONTROL OF CIVILIZED SOCIETY.
the term ‘rape culture’ came to be used extensively as late as the 1970’s in media and the public. First by feminists to explain the shameful state of normalising sexual violence by modern societies. This also highlighted a prominent presence of ‘rape culture’ in some of the oldest and so called glorious civilisations of the past…
Almost all mythologies have stories of women/youth being “taken” by Gods as punishment, pleasure or as a conquest, thereby making “consent”, agency and/ or “sexual identity” of the victim/survivor almost redundant in the whole scheme of things…
The glorious stories of Ancient Greek mythology are deeply sexist and misogynist and seem to not just verify the existence of brutal sexual violence therein, but almost justify it…The rape of women was a common theme throughout Greek mythology. The chief Greek God Zeus himself is part of many rape stories – he is believed to have ‘sexually violated’ several women, namely, Antiope, Europa, Hera, Leda and several others…
In the Roman context, The Rape of the Sabine Women, which was nothing other than forceful sexual violence perpetrated by Roman men, is often normalised as an important step in Roman history that helped them achieve a fairly “blended” population where some kind of consent and treaty was achieved after the said incident…
The Rape of Lucretia by Tarquinius is one that brings to focus the notion of chastity and consent among women back then. During those times, adultery was punishable by death for women, whether they willingly participated in it or not. After her rape Lucretia committed suicide, a choice that is often made by several victims of sexual violence even now, due to the lack of laws in their favour and the gross societal notion of being ‘defiled by rape’. Lucretia was blamed by several historians for having committed the ‘sin of involuntary sexual pleasure…’
In Indian mythology, there are several instances of sexual violence. Ahalya’s story is one of the most known ones where Indra disguised himself as her husband Gautama, had sexual relations with her, for which both of them were cursed by Gautama when he found out. She was turned into a stone…
Then there is the story of a demon called Jalandhar. He used his special powers of disguise to meet women as their respective husbands and thus deceived them into having sexual relations with him.
