I don't think the clone idea is sitchin's imagination (I haven't even read Sitchin)....one can read a translation of the texts online in numerous
places, and according to the sumerian account, Enki was in charge of making humans as he was the scientist. Man was made in the image of the GOD
(plural) not one God as the bible says.....the singular version was a mistranslation. However, it was Enlil who ultimately had rule over man, not
Enki. I'm not sure why you are so quick to negate Tsarion's 30 years of research , I've read his extensive work once over and he brought lots of
different ancient texts into the frame to back up the underlying theme. Nowhere was sex mentioned, and I've never bought into that idea myself.
I think it a mistake to use the Bible as the focal reference point when clearly it drew from an older source then modified some of what that older
source stated as the OT was clearly put together to venerate Enlil- Jehovah and demonize his adversary, Enki. At the end of the day, all writings
after the oldest texts are going to have variations on a similar theme.
These different factions - Enki-ites and Enli-ites would have spread across the globe eventually, telling their own version of events which surely
would have wandered somewhat from the older sources and all sorts of chinese whispers would have gone on, plots to discredit the other, all sorts of
people inbetween both sides into the bargain.
If there's one thing I remember from my history classes in school it's that evidence is of three types - primary, secondary and tertiary.
You go to the source to build your foundation of knowldge then pad it out with subsequent information that might shed more light on things. Clearly
the OT outright distorts the original story somewhat and is biased in favour of Jehovah-Enlil. The Sumerian texts do not talk of people being told to
go forth and multiply by Enlil....that's something the OT writers decided to change around.
you have to question this god, enlil when he found out what had happened with the serpent (Enki)....Genesis 3: 22 describes how outraged Enlil is that
the Adamites should be "like one of us, knowing good and evil" and then went on to say how he had to do something to prevent them from going on to
eat from the tree of life and "live forever"....sounds to me like someone who doesn't want his clones developing a SOUL , the soul being an
immortal thing that cannot be destroyed....why would a loving god not want his children, his creations, to have the same status of equality as him and
the other gods ? Why would he not want them to have a soul, to be immortal ?
The Sumerian texts and OT at least agree that man was created originally to be unquestionably subservient to the gods (not just "God") and Enki came
along and told them they could be "as gods" instead and Enlil was NOT happy about this. Why ever not...........
