9) Provenance

The following excerp from Scientific Proof Is A Myth is not from a Creationism author, but from Forbes magazine.

You’ve heard of our greatest scientific theories: the theory of evolution, the Big Bang theory, the theory of gravity. You’ve also heard of the concept of a proof, and the claims that certain pieces of evidence prove the validities of these theories. Fossils, genetic inheritance, and DNA prove the theory of evolution. The Hubble expansion of the Universe, the evolution of stars, galaxies, and heavy elements, and the existence of the cosmic microwave background prove the Big Bang theory. And falling objects, GPS clocks, planetary motion, and the deflection of starlight prove the theory of gravity.

Except that’s a complete lie. While they provide very strong evidence for those theories, they aren’t proof. In fact, when it comes to science, proving anything is an impossibility.

10) Creation: Performance Art

The oldest extant (still existing) physical record of creation is the Sumerian Enuma Elis[h], preserved on clay tablets that are dated to ~2100 BC

enuma-elish-tablets-2-and-3

It is generally agreed by archeologists that the Sumerian culture came into existence about 3500 BC.  So, just as with our own history books, we can realistically deduce one of two conditions:

  1. the historical account written 1,400 years later was compiled from older eye witness accounts of the occurrence of the events reported,
  2. or that they are fabricated to impose a ruling elite’s world view on a subjugated population.

11) Sons of God

The Hebrew Scriptures don’t describe the creation of the sons of God, they simply state that the sons of God were in existence when the the material universe was created.

“when I laid the foundations of the earth…all the sons of God shouted for joy.” (Job 38:4-7)

This version of the creations of the sons of Creator God differs significantly from the Vedas and Sumerian Enuma Elish, which state that the gods came into being after the creation of the world and therefore are unable to give testimony about Creation.

In the intense rivalry that has always existed between religions, this clues us in to the fundamental importance of Creation in religion. This also gives a clue as to the origin of the Vedic gods.

Working from the base understanding of the Singularity, we can deduce that the Singularity simply split off pieces of himself to form his “sons”, who would share his attributes / likeness of energy / power / abilities.

Image is a separate characteristic from likeness.

According to all the ancient scriptures, there is as wide an assortment of celestial bodies as there is of terrestrial bodies. This is stated succinctly in the Bible.

“God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him...There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.(I Corinthians 15:28-40)

12) In Earth As It Is In Heaven

“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven… Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:12-13) 

The phrase “in earth as it is in heaven”, so blandly recited in the Lord’s Prayer, is essential to understanding the conflict between heaven and earth that has existed since there was a universe. 

Every name / attribute of the angelic Sons of God is also applied to spiritually empowered humans who identify with God as their father, i.e. absolute authority, and are accepted by him.

13) Son of the Morning

The Enuma Elish explicitly describes a state of conflict in Creation, focusing its attention on one son right from the start.

And Anu begot Nudimmud in his likeness.

He, Nudimmud, was superior to his forefathers

He had no rival among the gods his peers.

Nudimmud is more commonly known in succeeding Mesopotamian languages as Ea or Enki.

The god Ea (whose Sumerian equivalent was Enki) is one of the three most powerful gods in the Mesopotamian pantheon, along with Anu and Enlil [Adam]. Sumerian texts about Enki often include overtly sexual portrayals of his virile masculinity [probably referencing his role as progenitor]…Ea has associations with wisdom, magic and incantations [calling into existence]…he is the ultimate source of all ritual knowledge used by exorcists to avert and expel evil [if he has authority over evil we must deduce that he called it into being]. Ea was patron of the arts and crafts, and all other achievements of civilization.  

Enki…Nudimmud, the mighty one…the strong one of the Anunna[ki]…[angels, gods], Enki, lord of the hegal [demigods, hybrid angel-human giants], lord of wisdom, lord, beloved of An, ornament of Eridu [possibly the oldest city in the world, founded by Cain], who directs commands and decisions, expert at fate-decreeing…You bring down the stars of heaven...Enki, king of the Abzu, celebrates his own magnificence – as is his right.”

His Sumerian name may be unfamiliar, but this individual is recognizable by his attributes of the lead angel commonly known in Western culture through the Bible as Lucifer.

14) Sons of the Gods

The Sumerian Creation story, the Enuma Elish, provides the details of Lucifer’s rebellion against Creator God.

Strangely enough – but significantly – it begins with Enki / Lucifer begetting a son in his own likeness and image.  

And Ea / Enki [the Serpent Dragon] and Damkina his lover dwelt in splendour.
In the chamber of destinies, the hall of designs,
Bel[Lord] cleverest of the clever, sage of the gods, was begotten.
And inside Apsu [the condition of Singularity where energy and mass can be exchanged], Marduk was created; [poetic repetition, Bel is a title for the individual Marduk who was begotten, created, born]
Inside pure Apsu, Marduk was born.
Ea / Enki his father created him,
Damkina his mother bore him.
Proud was his form, piercing his stare,
Mature his emergence, he was powerful from the start…
He made him so perfect that his godhead was doubled.
Elevated far above them, he was superior in every way.
His limbs were ingeniously made beyond comprehension. 
Impossible to understand, too difficult to perceive.
Four were his eyes, four were his ears;
When his lips moved, fire blazed forth.
The four ears were enormous
And likewise the eyes; they perceived everything.

Highest among the gods, his form was outstanding.
His limbs were very long, his height (?) outstanding.

(Anu [true Creator God] cried out)
‘Mari-utu, Mari-utu, Son, majesty, majesty of the gods!’
Clothed in the radiant mantle of ten gods, worn high above his head
Five fearsome rays were clustered above him.

15) Days of Thunder

The battle for earth has always been fought out with hyper dimensional beings.

Thy way and thy doings have procured these things unto thee; this is thy wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reacheth unto thine heart. My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment. How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet? For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children / sons of God / angels and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.

When we read this Bible passage through the lens of energy consumption and conservation we recognize that God is not arbitrarily lashing out a punishment because he is offended. He is bewailing the inevitable consequences of actions taken by beings who were granted freedom to act. Creator God bemoans that the rebel angels have acted in a foolish, self-destructive way by disconnecting from the source of life. The simple definition of Truth is Reality. There is a reality to the Laws of Thermodynamics.

Night One: The earth became dark and void by the actions of the adversaries of light and life, through a flood that overwhelmed it.

“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.” (Genesis 1:2)

16) Made In The Likeness of God: Singularity

To today’s most advanced thinkers, academics like Richard Dawkins, the Charles Simony Professor of the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford, and the other militant materialists who regulate and maintain the scientific world-view, the ‘mind of God’ is…the anthropomorphic fallacy. Even if we allow that God might conceivably exist, they say, why on earth should ‘He’ be like us? Why should ‘His’ mind be in any way like ours?

The fact is that they’re right. Of course there is no reason at all…unless it’s the other way round. In other words, the only reason why God’s mind might be like ours is if ours was made to be like His…

The signature likeness of God is Singularity in diversity, so this is the primary attribute we should look for in mankind’s likeness to God.

Continue reading “16) Made In The Likeness of God: Singularity”

17) Made In The Image Of God: Anthropomorphic

Whether or not we believe the account, a reliable analysis of the Hebrew records states clearly that as well as being created in his likeness / attributes, humanity was created in the Singularity’s own image / what he looks like.

“And God said, Let us make man in our imagein the image of God made he man.” (Genesis 1:26, 9:6)

When we examined the creation of hyper dimensional sons of God who were “spun” out of nothing but Creator himself, we found that they were artistically formed into a proliferation of looks. From the Luciferian dragon to “beasts” of all sorts, these are described in the Bible but mainly in pagan records where there was much more up-close familiarity with those gods.

Logically, therefore, we have to question that if these beings with a multitude of artistic imagery are 100% the Singularity, how can just one being claim to be uniquely in his image?

Aha! Pounce! Evidence that man made God in his image!!! We can toss the Bible.

Not so fast.

“The first man Adam was made…the last Adam was made…” (I Corinthians 15:48)

“we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory…without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh.” (I Corinthians 2:7, I Timothy 3:16)

What God is saying is that he planned ahead, choosing to make the human image the one he incorporates as his own. Literally.

“Fear not Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a sonThe Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God..” (Luke 1:30-35)

“I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.” (Daniel 7:13-14)

Consider this. The angels were brought into existence at the beginning of creation, when there was nothing material, not even the earth.

But man was made at the end of creation, after the Singularity had already converted some of his pure energy to mass. And he uses that existing mass to form mankind.

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” (Genesis 2:7)

Can we not recognize that this makes mankind entirely different from the pure energy hyper dimensional angel? Humans are literally the “salt of the earth”, i.e. the elements like sodium and chloride and iron and oxygen and potassium and all the other elements forming the “dust” of the earth. We are the pinnacle of the hierarchy of physical creation, not only in the food chain but in attributes of creation and taking control. 

adambassett_wmv2i5_foodchains1t

When we operate as designed, we combine the the best of both domains – hyper dimensionality and physicality.

Humanity is the flourish signature of the magnificent artist, the masterpiece by which he is acclaimed for eternity.

“What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and [yet] hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:” (Psalm 8)

The creation of humanity is the high point, the culmination of the immense saga so sparsely outlined in Genesis chapter 1. This is the solution to the conflict between Creator and his rebel hyper dimensional sons in the days and nights leading up to making mankind:

“Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion,” (Genesis 1:26)

In literary fiction, a good ending has certain elements…the story arc has come to its logical end and the character has achieved their main goal. The elements of a good and satisfying ending include:

  1. Resolution: An ending must always wrap up and resolve the central conflict you laid out in the beginning of the novel.
    • In this case, the conflict is Lucifer and his follower’s determination to pillage and destroy what they envied but could not have.
  2. Transformation: A story’s ending should bring a powerful close to your character development.
    • In this case, God’s character develops from being the sole being, the Singularity, to becoming the Creator and therefore totally in control, to freely giving control to mankind.
  3. Suspense: A story’s ending is intensified when there’s a moment when the main character might not succeed. That last-minute tension makes the ending more satisfying when the main character overcomes their obstacles.
    • That tension is recounted right after the man and cloned woman take possession of their dominion, when the woman disconnects from the Creator to engage with the Adversary. Is all lost?!
  4. Surprise: Readers follow a character’s story to be entertained. Satisfying endings have an element of surprise. Predictable endings will make a great story fall flat.
    • The entire rest of the biblical account consists of ongoing conflict with the Adversary and plot twists and clues and predictions up to the last Revelation of the mystery.

The plot of the entire Bible – the point of all of creation – is summarized in Genesis 1:26.

“Let us make man[kind]…and let them have dominion.”

Satan makes clear his distain for “the mud people.”

them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the moth…They are destroyed from morning to evening: they perish for ever without any regarding it. Doth not their excellency which is in them go away? they die, even without wisdom.” (Job 4:19-21)

But even this is part of God’s plan conceived before the world was created. God didn’t get caught off guard.

It is tremendously important to connect the wrap up of the whole story as found in theological explanations we call the New Testament letters with the introduction of the whole plot in Genesis 1. Without going into Christian theology at this stage of the investigation, simply recognize Adam’s connection with all of creation reported in Genesis 1. 

“[H]is dear son…the image of the invisible God, the firstborn [first spin-off] of every creature…by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible…all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist…For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And…to reconcile all things unto himself [return to some form of singularity.]” (Colossians 1:13-20)

I don’t agree with all the conclusions made by Alan Watts because he loses the thread of provenance that holds everything together, and falls back on his personal philosophizing, but this statement of the problem is nicely put.

The root of the matter is the way we feel and conceive of ourselves as human beings. Our sensation of being alive, of individual existence and identity. We suffer from a hallucination, from a false and distorted sensation of our own existence as living organisms. Most of us have the sensation that “I, myself” is a separate center of feeling and action, living inside and bounded by the physical body. A center with confronts an external world of people and things, making contact through the senses with a universe both alien and strange…

This feeling of being lonely and very temporary visitors in the universe is in flat contradiction to everything known about man and all other living organisms in the sciences. We do not come into this world. We come out of it. Alan W. Watts, The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are

18) God Is Pro-Choice

Freedom is the ability to choose one’s actions.

People are quick to blame God when things go bad, even faulting him for having the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden because, being omniscient, he knew full well that human beings would eat the fruit and become captive to sin.

The reality is that the tree gave us freedom – defined as “the power to determine action without restraint.”
