Enoch, Genesis (Nefilim), and all the other ancient near-east religions (even AE) are meteoritic-based (as a basis for creation). JL

The book of Enoch has a very, very important "fact" to tell us about monotheism. When Noah was born: His body was white as snow and red as the blooming of a rose, and the hair of his head and his locks were white as wool, and his eyes were fair. And when he opened his eyes, he lighted up the whole house like the Sun, and the whole house was very bright. And thereupon he arose in the

your take on the King's chambers graffiti? IOW, where it says Khufu, you used to believe it a forgery but now accept it as valid? Personally, not knowing much more about Egypt buildings than what little I've read, I'm stuck solely (for now) on the machining expertise per Dunn. JL

Yes, pre 2nd mill. BC. Point being, the element that was left OUT of the Old Testament story tells us something very important. JL

and, if you compare the earlier story against the Old Testament version, one glaring omission tells the reason for the story (i.e. what does the story symbolize). The ark was not a real, actual boat/vessel. JL

used in these stories. For example, it has been pointed out by an author, that the main difference between the Gilgamesh story and the biblical Ark story is that Utnapishtim (Noah) was allowed to ascend to heaven to live with "god". Additionally, OTHER symbolic elements NOT included in the O.T. story bear fruit (no pun intended). For example, in the Enochian writings, we have Noah be

The story of Noah/Utnapishtim are SYMBOLIC. They were created to attempt to explain (i.e. religious/beliefs) creation. Thus, the symbolic elements used help the reader understand the big picture. JL

Interestingly, Osiris is said to have "entered the mountain and come out shining". Contrast this with Moses coming down from the "mountain" and having a face that "emanated rays" (from the Torah). JL

If you can adjust your predilections that myths are "inspired" by fact and may simply be symbolic language used to describe what people "believe" happened, Christianity (and Islam and Judaism) might reveal itself to you. JL

when the story of Noah was based on an earlier Sumerian story? Think about it. Noah isn't an original and the concept of an ark and flood isn't original. JL

Wasn't the Grand Gallery ceiling made up of some type of removable slab (there's a rabbit/dado existing on the sides of the GG walls high up)? If there were, it would be easy to infer that this ceiling either covered up/hid something OR had writing on it. JL

Why would a Mason make that kind of statement KNOWING it's so easy to find out why the AE mummified remains (cracking any orthodox Egyptology book would suffice)? That's the question (and not an easy one at that). JL

IOW, they were obsessed with recreating the act of creation. As well, like many human cultures, the AE were concerned about how their knowledge would be carried forward in the LIKELY event of another act of creation catastrophe (i.e. meteorite impacts). Thus, the GP was the culmination of that philosophy. Are there any end-times believers on earth today? Wasn't Jesus MAIN point (not a histori

Note that the KJV says the Nefilim were IN the earth in those days (i.e. not on the surface but in the "underworld"). This fits nicely with Alford's contention that the Nephilim were meteorites. Just look at all the prior religious texts that describe cataclysmic events related to the earth being smitten or cracked or cleaved, etc. JL

is one of meteorites. So, FTR, AFAIK we have the following interpretations of NephilimL 1) angels (ala monotheism and an interactive god) 2) flesh-and-blood aliens (via Sitchin) 3) meteorites (via Alford, once a die-hard supporter of Sitchin but has done a complete about-face) It is interesting to note that Nefilim is used once (at most twice if you include Numbers 13 which I haven't looked at
