undo: genesis 1:2 didn't originally say "and the earth was void and without form", rather it originally said "and the earth BECAME void and without form", which means that what we are witnessing in the creation chapters is not the first creation but a re-creation following a cataclysm. however, several times now i have found 2 stories and sometimes even 3, meshed together in the text, and i haven't taken the time to separate them all out from each other. and not all of the verses are effected, it's mostly in the areas where there's alot of detail of import, such as creation, the fall narrative, the flood account, for starters. To answer your question about enki: enki is the eldest son of anu. i have no idea what to make of it, other than to suggest that whatever happened prior to the creation of the adam males and females and the re-terraforming of the earth, is lost to history (unless it's written down in some coded text oOnr mystery school super secret database. i'm mostly concerned that this is actually just a cycle, at the end of which everyone dies except a few, and it starts all over again. that would suck.

DNA and HEALING. Creator God, all the way, not the evil god, but the god that created humans with DNA. Scientific knowledge of the magnitude of genetics, became associated with the "serpent", the "sorcerer" not as an evil wizard, but as a creator God. It's a mess of misunderstanding that we've come to think the bad guy is the good guy in the old testament. when jesus finally comes around, he points that out, several times and even likens himself to the serpent raised by moses on his staff to bring healing to the people. Afterall, he's called the Great Physician (and by that he doesn't mean the Great Dragon cause there's more than one serpent).
