It gets even stranger when you read the magazine. There is a 10 page comic of the Book of Genesis, by artist R. Crumb, who drew Fritz the Cat.
First, here are some quotes from accompanying article:
He drew on his interest in what he calls "the dawn of civilization" -- the history and myths of Sumer, Babylon, Akkad, and ancient Egypt. He
likes the "crytpo-cultish" section of the bookstores, and is fascinated by the tortuous processes by which philologists have managed to decipher
cuneiform and other ancient scripts.
Crumb, who says he suspects that God exists, is broadly curious about the spiritual forces in the universe.
And here is where it gets really weird:
For the serpent and temptation, Crumb draws a Reptilian. standing there on two feet, talking to Eve. The Reptilian says "You shall not be doomed to
die, for God knows that on the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will become as divine beings, knowing good and evil." That is
pretty close to accurate. It is just weird to have a Reptilian ET as the serpent.
After God shows up and finds out that Adam and Eve ate the fruit. he turns the Reptilian into a snake. That was what I am used to as the image of the
serpent. Maybe you guys knew about the Reptilian imagery, but it is new to me.
I would post a link but I cannot find a link to the comic.
