I enjoyed reading your comments. I have always found the beginning of the bible, not the Garden of Eden, which is several stories belonging to other
cultures whelded together to give the start to the Hebrew bible and link those people to their God.
Its the comments, almost throw-away about the presumably pre-flood era that catch my attention and tells us that the world was fully habitated. This
point alone is very interesting because scholars like to say life started only around Africa and the ME but we know of cultures and are finding
ancient signs of human habitation, with wondrous skills employed, many superior to our abilities today all over the world, so I don't see any reason
to doubt this point.
Next we have the Tower of Babel and its story of confounding the language spoken by the peoples of the world. To me that is purely an act of war
against the world by some despot, not supernatural being.
I have wondered about the first language and think we cannot consider it as related to how we communicate today. I don't know I want to go as far as
thinking it was tele pathetic. However, we evolved through a DNA chain of life on this planet and so should have the attributes of those different
species and certainly the animal, fish etc kingdoms and now we are slowly discovering that even plants communicate silently to each other. So did we
have that ability initially I keep an open mind but want to see more about its possibilities?
Ancient people thought so differently to us. We have had the Pagan ways of belief erased completely so we know precious little of the ancient's
Shamans, the Animalists etc and so find it impossible pretty much to relate to the way the ancients engaged with their environment. This is very
important because we don't know where the change over to speaking a common language evolved. We do know they shared a cosmic and mathematical
language which has remained through to today but at what time this happened and when we changed from a symbolic/spiritual world into the pragmatic one
we have today I would love to know.
I find it hard to think of a tower being built to reach heavedn or God. Today our thinking gives us mobile phone and telecommunication masts but the
tower may simply have been because of pollution reaching up to spoil the view of the heavens so something higher for the priests and calculatores of
time may have been needed. It simply got too high or an earthquake toppled it. It seems strange to think that with the fantastic building and design
abilities the Ancient people had an irate 'God' would not have destroyed a lot more of their buildings thanjust one tower.
We have the hieroglyphs and pictograms but the symbols and so much information was destroyed by the Chnristians following their agenda of brainwashing
people into their flocks. Basically I suspect many of us long for a more naturalist manner of living our lives and are slowly reaching through the
engrams of our minds to try to remember what we were robbed of. I suspect the secretive society type groups we have today feel threatened by the
ancient celebrations enjoyed by all without secrecy and witheld knowledge.
