I could be wrong...
aren't these carvings a depiction of the philistine god dagon?


No, but similar.

The are Babylonian Apkallu. The "Seven Sages" sent to us from Ea (Enki) to give us civilization.

They are also pretty much the "original versions" of angels as well as genies (Djinn.)

Not the Anunnaki, though you see them called that all over the internet, especially here.

You are right, some of them depict Dagon. I didn't know that!

One last thing...The annunaki are suppose to be reptilian in appearance.

From what I know they are supposed to be a kind of nobles or deities descended from heaven and deities are never reptile looking. I am not really sure about the appearance but I always related them with carvings featuring "winged genies". Since they have four wings and are usually depicted near tree of life holding a pine cone, biblical Cherubim could also be in fact them. I am not even sure where the "reptilian" Anunnaki come from.... I'm only basing this on my very little knowledge about mid east history.

I have my own spin on the dragons represented and their meanings. I have purposely left it out. I've touched on them in the next installment. Many of the questions raised thus far in the responses to this and part-1 have set in motion other thread possibilities. The discussion is rather tantalizing to say the least.

Yes...

Thank you. I believe that many are not be aware of just how tragic and disastrous for human history was the loss of Alexandria and other great libraries of Antiquity.

Not likely, considering the Library of Alexandria didn't even exist when Solon was alive.

Understandable that you believe this, considering how little you actually know about the subject.

The Library never suffered from any flood, see.

I've only just finished Part 1, so I have not much to add to this thread yet, but I wanted to post a note stating they have been most compelling and a fabulous read, so far. Notwithstanding the huge amounts of information to absorb and resources to follow up with, of course. Great work!

I have Always considered Pacific Islanders Hawaii Olmecs or Descendants
There is still Features what look like those Stone Heads of the Olmec s Today
Especially if those people have a bit of Weight to them

Samoan Hawaiian & Fuji Philippines, New Guinea the Well known"s well maybe Australian too
but there is a Clash from what it look like of Asian & African of Polynesian Ancestry
Melanesia
en.wikipedia.org...

Polynesia
en.wikipedia.org...
as a little article that talks about that

Micronesia

PDF well from this PDF the Results of Olmec's are African According to this PDF

Olmecs Burial Ground Pyramid ?

Pyramid Tomb Found: Sign of a Civilization's Birth?



The pyramid tomb is a window into how and when unique cultures emerged from the Olmec, one of the oldest civilizations in the New World, Bachand said. The Olmec began fanning out from their Gulf of Mexico homeland around 1200 B.C. and influenced many Mesoamerican civilizations to come—to what extent, though, is a longstanding debate among archaeologists. (See "Ancient City Found in Mexico; Shows Olmec Influence.")

Thanks for relating the Hawaiian myth awake1234.


Yata No Kagami - The Sacred Mirror

does have a striking resemblance to...

The Eye of Kanaloa


From what you said awake1234 and what Wolfenz' had said, I'm beginning to see the possibility of a Pacific landmass touching Central America. The Polynesians could be the giants of the Mesoamericans myths. This disc image, with the 8 dials, seems to be a link to connect the Pacific cultures together. Did the ancient Japanese, Polynesian and Olmec cultures have an alliance?

I would chance to say that the Caribbean submersion event happened at the same time a Pacific submersion event happened. I can imagine a landmass falling into the sea which was connected to the west coast of central America. The landmass could have been connected at the top of south America and Panama.

Yeah I thought that was rather interesting myself. The new nickname for them are the "Hobbits" and apparently we are not related to them supposedly. That's why I referred to them as another "Bipedal Species" I read a few threads here at ATS on the "Hobbit" they didn't get much attention.

Hello, Homo floresiensis: Studies prove "hobbits a new species"
Top Scholars gather for 'Hobbit' debate at SBU
New skull study shows 'hobbit' is not human

We will see what kind of damage that causes.

I was always facinated with stories of atlantis and lost
civilizations.The stories about lemuria,I haven't been as
interested in it,as I have been about atlantis.I used to have
a copy of a 1947 issue of 'Amazing Stories' dealing with the
Shaver Mystery.I found the story interesting enough,but,
I didn't give it much thought.


You know my parents had a few old copy's of "Amazing Stories"
I would read them for hours and just think of the possibilities etc. That lead me to do my own research into certain topics.

Which was your favorite?

Hey awake1234, I'm beginning to believe the Great Pyramid of Giza is in fact a highly complex Dolmen. The air shafts seem to be similar in nature to the small opening in the dolmens. The dolmens and the GPG are designed to invite UFOs that appear as balls of light.


Can you go into more detail.
I know what Dolmens are and have read many things regarding the Great Pyramid but how are you making the connection? I fail to see it.
