The Secret Source of Babylonian Cosmology

The Secret Source of Babylonian Cosmology. The origin of the Babylonian and Akkadian cosmology did not differ in this respect from other races in the same stage of development. In whatever direction we look when examining the cosmologies of barbarian or semi-civilized peoples, we find a total inability to get behind and beyond the idea that the matter of creation lay already to the hand of the creative agency, and that in order to shape a world it had but to draw the material therefore from the teeming deep or the slain body of a hostile monster. The cosmology of Babylon is therefore on a par with those of Scandinavia, China, and many North American Indian tribes, nor does it reach so high an imaginative level as those of ancient Egypt, India, or the Maya of Central America, in some of which, the vocal command of a god is sufficient to bring about the creation of the earth and the waters surrounding it. The making of the sun, the moon, and the other heavenly bodies is, as will be more fully shown later, of great importance in Babylonian myth. The stars appear to have been attached to the firmament of heaven as to a cloth. Across this the sun passed daily, his function being to inspect the movements of the other heavenly bodies. The moon, likewise, had her fixed course, and certain stars were also supposed to move across the picture of the night with greater or less regularity. The Secret heavens were guarded at either end by a great gateway, and through one of these the sun passed after rising from the ocean, whilst in setting he quit the heavens by the opposite portal. The terrestrial world was imagined as a great hollow structure resting on the ( deep.’ Indeed, it would seem to have been regarded as an island floating on an abyss of waters. This conception of the world of earth was by no means peculiar to the Babylonians, but was shared by them with many of the nations of antiquity. As emanating from the blood of Merodach/Marduk himself, man was looked upon as directly of heavenly origin. An older tradition existed to the effect that the Anunnaki Merodach/Marduk had been assisted in the creation of mankind by the goddess Aruru, who figures in the Gilgamesh epic as the creator of Eabani out of a piece of clay. We also find an ancient belief that humanity owed its origin to the god Ea/Enki, but when Merodach displaced this god politically, he would, of course, ‘ take over ’ his entire record and creative deeds as well as his powers and sovereign-ties. At Nippur Bel was looked up to as the originator of man. But these beliefs probably obtained in remoter times, and would finally be quenched by the advance to full and unquestioned power of the great god Merodach/Marduk. Some mythologists see in the story of Jonah a hidden allusion to the circumstances of Babylonian cosmology…there appears to be a “Secret Source” behind IT all; Narrated, Created by A.Christie

The Creation of the Anunnaki Gods

The Creation of the Ancient Mesopotamian Anunnaki gods. This documentary contains information from the excavations in ancient Mesopotamia by A.H. Sayce, Lectures on the Origin and Growth of Religion as Illustrated by the Religion of the Ancient Babylonians. The work of Sayce is then furthered by Lewis Spence who is an esteemed occult writer, who decided that Sayce did not attempt to lift the veil. I am A.Christie (Ancient Mystery) adding a 3rd ore for direction Seven Tablets of Creation, the library of Assur-bani-pal at Nineveh , at this time they were at the British Museum. These have from time to time been supplemented by later finds. But we may take it that in this record we have the final official development of the Ancient Babylonian belief, due to the priests of Babylon, after that city had become the metropolis of the empire. The primary object of the Seven Tablets was to record a terrific fight between Marduk/Bel-Merodach and the Dragon, and the account of the creation is inserted by way of introduction. This may be the moment the Entity of many names, was brought into being. Damascius states that Anu was followed by Bel (in this documentary we retain the Babylonian form of the names rather than Damascius’ Greek titles), and Ea/Enki the god of Eridu. From Ea/Enki and Dawkina, he writes, was born a son called Belos or Bel-Merodach (Marduk), whom the Babylonians regarded as the creator of the world who then goes on to create the Anunnaki gods. At first, as in the other accounts, nothingness reigned supreme, then did the great gods create warriors with the bodies of birds, and men with the faces of ravens. The Bird Man. They founded the Anunnaki gods a city in the ground, and Tiawath, the great dragon, did suckle them. They were fostered in the midst of the mountains, and under the care of the “mistress of the gods” they greatly increased and became heroes of might. The Anunnaki gods are born…Seven kings had they, who ruled over six thousand people. Their father was the god Benani, and their mother the queen, Melili. These beings, who might almost be called tame gods of evil, Nergal states that he destroyed them. Thus all accounts agree concerning the original chaotic condition of the universe. They also agree that the powers of chaos and darkness were destroyed by a god of light. The rabbit hole goes deeper than we can imagine, I will be continuing to work through Mesopotamia and will present all I can find on the Anunnaki gods…namely the Unknown Anunnaki…join me as I head into the darkness….

The Michigan Dogman Sightings

The Mysterious Michigan Dogman Sightings. According to legends, the Michigan Dogman appears in a ten-year cycle that falls on years ending in 7. Sightings have been reported in several locations throughout Michigan, primarily in the northwestern quadrant of the Lower Peninsula. The creature is described as a seven-foot tall, blue-eyed, or amber-eyed bipedal canine-like animal with the torso of a man and a fearsome howl that sounds like a human scream. This creature was unknown to most of the modern world until very late in the twentieth century. It is said to have been stalking the area around the Manistee River since the days when the Odawa tribes lived there. Authentic sources for sightings were made prior to 1987, however, have never been documented beyond Steve Cook’s song. The first alleged encounter of the Michigan Dogman occurred in 1887 in Wexford County, when two lumberjacks saw a creature which they described as having a man’s body and a dog’s head. Linda S. Godfrey, in her book The Beast of Bray Road, compares the Manistee sightings to a similar creature sighted in Wisconsin known as the Beast of Bray Road. The Cook song: In 1987 disc jockey Steve Cook at WTCM-FM in Traverse City, Michigan recorded a song titled “The Legend”, which he initially played as an April Fool’s Day joke. He based the songs on myths and legends from around North America Cook maintains his skepticism about the possibility of a real dogman, he had this to say about the matter: I do believe people who think they saw something really did see something. I also think the Dogman provides them with an avenue to explain what they couldn’t explain for themselves. — Steve Cook, Skeptoid.com, Wag the Dogman.
