you might find my latest line of research, interesting. the numbers are reference numbers for the original hebrew words used, as listed in strongs
Gen 1:26 ¶ And God 430 said 559 , Let us make 6213 man 120 in our image 6754, after our likeness 1823: and let them have dominion 7287 over
the fish 1710 of the sea 3220, and over the fowl 5775 of the air 8064, and over the cattle 929, and over all the earth 776, and over every creeping
thing 7431 that creepeth 7430 upon the earth 776.
Gen 1:27 So God 430 created 1254 man 120 in his [own] image 6754, in the image 6754 of God 430 created 1254 he him; male 2145 and female
5347 created 1254 he them.
the word God in those passages is actually ELOHIYM (which is plural). and the word man is 'adam, which means red or ruddy this is a reference to
his skin color being red or ruddy. this image, taken from the tomb of seti I, in valley of the kings, depicts what is known as the four races of
as you can see, the egyptians are red or ruddy.
notice also how the second version says elohiym created male and female in his image. the word his is not in the original language. instead it
simply says ELOHIYM CREATED MALE AND FEMALE. Bear with me, this is going somewhere interesting.
Anyway, let's leave that for a moment now and look at this:
ATUM The Creator God of the Ennead of Heliopolis, who rose out of the Primeval Waters (the Nun) to form the Primeval Mound, the first piece of
land which emerged when the water withdrew. Some of his epiteths were: 'Lord to the limit of the sky', 'He Who came into being of Himself', the
'Lord of All' and 'Lord of Iunu (Gr: Heliopolis)'. He self-developed into a being, standing on a raised mound; i.e. the primeval mound, which
became the Benben, a pyramid shaped stone, regarded as the dwelling place of the sun god. Atum is therefore the creator god who created the universe,
he is the supreme being and master of the forces and elements of the universe. Utterance 600 in the Pyramid Texts: "O Atum-Kheper! You became high
on the height, you rose up as the Benben Stone in the Mansion of the Phoenix in On (Heliopolis)." By this is meant the Primeval Mound itself.
that's the primeval mound rising from the primeval abyss. in short, it's enki's e.abzu rising up from the abzu/the abyss. this information has a
two fold purpose: 1) it proves that the god could sometimes be fused with his edifice, in the ancient texts, and 2) it proves that atum was enki. now
before you get side tracked, i want you to realize that i'm not saying adam was enki. obviously. however, as i will soon explain, there's more to
atum than the egyptologists suggest (or at least, i think so)
back to genesis now.
the two creation verses from genesis that i listed above, cover the FIRST creation of adam who was created in the image of atum. but since the
biblical passage is referring to a plurality of gods, atum is also plural, meaning that the gods created males and females in their image, and the
whole bulk of the males and females were called atum for their red or ruddy skin color. in other words, the original egyptians should really be
called the atum.
note also that it doesn't actually say man. it says 'adam. and 'adam is created male and female. this is important to remember. some believe
this indicates that the first creation was a hermaphrodite, having both male and female parts and that creation of eve out of adam's side is an
indication that the two parts were separated from each other in a later creation, thought by some to be the second creation of adam because it's a
different chapter, and doesn't tell the same story as the first creation of adam.
HOWEVER, if the gods were "dragons", the first adam creation were male and female serpents, not male and female humans. the second creation of
adam were not made in the gods image. they were made entirely different.
this means, theoretically, that the first egyptians were red colored reptilians, serpents. the atum.
some were good and some were not so good. they didn't want to labor, so a second adam creation transpired, the creation of human man. human woman
was cloned from human man and modified.
moses wrote most of the first five books of the old testament, known as the pentateuch. and he was raised as an egyptian. he would've known alot of
this information himself.
it makes sense to me, anyway.
