[I]in the late third millennium BCE, contemporary cuneiform tablets and seals document intentional breeding of highly valued equids called kungas for use in diplomacy, ceremony, and warfare. Their precise zoological classification, however, has never been conclusively determined. Morphometric analysis of equids uncovered in rich Early Bronze Age burials at Umm el-Marra, Syria, placed them beyond the ranges [i.e. larger than] reported for other known equid species.
We sequenced the genomes of one of these ~4500-year-old equids, together with an ~11,000-year-old Syrian wild ass (hemippe) from Göbekli Tepe and two of the last surviving hemippes. We conclude that kungas were F1 hybrids between female domestic donkeys and male hemippes, thus documenting the earliest evidence of hybrid animal breeding.
And not just animals with animals, but humans with animals.
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…
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 Nigeri), 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.
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.
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.
Most of all in animal research.
University of Illinois animal geneticists Lawrence Schook and Jonathan Beever have created a side-by-side comparison of the human genome and the pig genome…“We took the human genome, cut it into 173 puzzle pieces and rearranged it to make a pig,” said Schook. “Everything matches up perfectly…”
but as Beever put it, “The same gene in the pig may work in combination with other genes to control something very different than it does in a human.”
So, if all of the genes match up, what is it that makes a pig a pig and a human a human? “That’s the million dollar question,” said Beever. “The genes match up when compared side-by-side, but understanding how they work together is the next step.”
“And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth. Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat. These are the beasts which ye shall…not eat…the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud;…is unclean to you…They shall be even an abomination unto you.” (Leviticus 11:2-11)
If we remain consistent in the application of the word “abomination”, then the genetic information we’ve just uncovered explains why YHVH forbade the eating of pork in the list of strict rules for his people. The genetic expressions of type of hoof and digestion are significant only as markers – phenotypes – of genotype hybridization by evil beings before the flood.
It appears that pigs are a form of humans bred for high value food and medicines to meet the needs of the metabolically challenged giants.
- High fat content for high energy
- High protein content to build and maintain muscles
- High calcium and phosphorus content for bone growth and strength
- Selenium to prevent anemia
- Iron for blood production
- High collagen content to produce and maintain connective tissue throughout the body
- Medicinal uses of hair, bones, blood, internal organs such as heparin,
- Heart valves for transplants, a common surgical practice now, with efforts currently underway to genetically tweak a breed of pigs that can provide whole organ hearts, livers, kidneys, and lungs for human transplantation.
Different types of tissues from genetically engineered pigs are already being tested in humans. In China, researchers have transplanted insulin-producing pancreatic islet cells from gene-edited pigs into people with diabetes. A team in South Korea says it’s ready to try transplanting pig corneas into people, once it gets government approval. And at Massachusetts General Hospital, researchers announced in October that they had used gene-edited pig skin as a temporary wound covering for a person with severe burns. The skin patch, they say, worked as effectively as human skin, which is much harder to obtain…One day…genetically modified pigs…will be sliced open, their hearts, kidneys, lungs and livers sped to transplant centers to save desperately sick patients from death.
Transgenic animals are routinely used in…biomedical research [emphasis added]…
Such animals are most commonly created by the microinjection of DNA into the pronuclei of a fertilised egg which is subsequently implanted into the oviduct of a pseudopregnant surrogate mother. This results in the recipient animal giving birth to genetically modified offspring. The progeny are then bred with other transgenic offspring to establish a transgenic line.
The institute creates the micropigs by using a gene-editing technique that alters the genomes of a Bama — an already small breed of pig — to make it even smaller. BGI uses TALENs…to disable one of two copies of the growth hormone receptor gene in a Bama’s fetal cells. [Emphasis added.]
The micropigs were originally used as lab animals…because they “closely [resemble] man in anatomy, physiology and genetics,” according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information.
Collateral information in Leviticus also links “unclean” and “abomination” with reproductive and non-reproductive sexually aberrant acts associated with pagan practices.
“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel:
- And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife…
- And the man that lieth with his father’s wife…
- And if a man lie with his daughter in law,
- If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
- And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.
- And if a man lie with a beast,
- And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
- And if a man shall take his sister…
- And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness / menstruating…they shall be cut off / quarantined or banished to avoid contaminating others in the sight of their people:
- And thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister, nor of thy father’s sister: for he uncovereth his near kin: they shall bear their iniquity.
- And if a man shall lie with his uncle’s wife…
- And if a man shall take his brother’s wife, it is an unclean thing…they shall be childless.
And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.” (Leviticus 20)
Before condemning the one ancient law code most people have any awareness of at all, consider the alternative. There was a time when all members of society were required to subject themselves to the gods’ demands through worship practices and rituals to meet their objectives.
The shocking new upcoming documentary-series, Secrts of Playboy, is set to lift the lid on the dark side of the notorious brand and its founder, Hugh Hefner, including accusations of him ‘demanding orgies’…at the mansion five nights a week, which became ‘protocol’.
She also witnessed first-hand how his sexual demands would turn nasty, and admitted he ‘scared me at the end…
“He (Hefner) really did believe he owned these women. We had Playmates that overdosed, that committed suicide.”
These are all common elements of pagan rituals.
Perhaps the Mosaic law doesn’t sound so prudish anymore?
Collaboration of humans with the hyper-dimensional gods inevitably allows the gods to take in human spiritual / life energy for the gods’ purposes. Because the gods, disconnected from the infinite source of energy, have no other means of sustaining themselves than by obtaining it through living beings.
And once the god is up and running it’s a chainsaw massacre. This concept is the logical climax of the historically-grounded Game of Throne series.
There is much to be learned by matching the terse biblical account with the common elements found in other more expansive records. The key feature is that, just as YHVH collaborated with humans, the gods colluded with humans in their wars to claim dominion over heaven and earth.
An updated version of this concept is fantastically – in every sense – presented by the celebrated author Neil Gaiman in American Gods. His gods are not only based on historic records, but consistent with the scientific understanding of energy beings as detailed in the post Sons of God.
an incarnation of Odin the All-Father…is recruiting American manifestations of the Old Gods, whose powers have waned as their believers have decreased in number, to participate in a battle against the New American Gods – manifestations of modern life and technology, such as the Internet, media, and modern means of transport…
Shadow is bound by his contract…to hold his vigil by re-enacting Odin’s time hanging from a “World Tree” while pierced by a spear for nine days…he is visited by Horus, who has become mad from living too long as a hawk. Shadow…learns that he is…Odin’s son, conceived as part of the deity’s plans…
Shadow realizes…that Odin and Loki have been working a “two-man con“…Loki had arranged for Odin’s murder, thus making the battle between the New and Old Gods a sacrifice to Odin, restoring Odin’s power, while also allowing Loki to feed on the chaos of the battle…
Whether or not Neil Gaiman believes in gods, he absolutely understand the concept that the gods’ interaction with humanity is all about power. Not just emotional and intellectual influence over what people believe and act on, but literally transfer of life energy necessary for the gods disconnected from the infinite Singularity to replace their energy as it is used. Think of it like the Walking Dead. The exploitive potential of bodily energy life is just as applicable in the spiritual domain.
Animism, the commonly held indigenous peoples’ belief that spirits inhabit all elements of nature, is consistent with the purely scientific understanding of the energy needs of spirit beings, as well as the biblical.
“For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption / merged with evil spirits into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.” (Romans 8:18-20)
But humans are definitely at the top of the food chain. We not only provide physical life energy, but are the prime source of soul energy – emotions, creativity, intellect, relationships. This clarifies the rituals demanded by the gods, in addition to the sacrifices, especially heightened feelings experienced with music and being whipped into a frenzy by preaching, dancing and sex. Who wants to exist as a lump on a log when scintillating human experiences are ripe for the taking?
