I was thinking about creation the other day....and how the snake talked in the garden of Eden...and then I thought of Reptilian's.....it seems to me that the so-called snake may have been a Reptilian.


In Project Avalon forum there is an interesting post...and I quote:

"Was the snake in the garden of Eden mentioned in Genesis really a reptilian? With translations from Hebrew to Greek to English and snakes not being known by humans to talk it could have been misconstrued---a talking snake? Never made sense.

Also there is the statement. "come let us make man in our image." (Us) meant plural Gods. That ties in with the Sitchin work on ancient ETs in Sumeria being known to the 'gods' with great powers. Some believe that the stories in the OT were taken from Sumerian stories that were written earlier. Clay tablets still exist of their writings.

And later those gods mated with the "daughters of men" also stated in the OT. There are parts of the puzzle of our existence to be put together that are really interesting. We might not have to wait much longer to find out if we were kept in the dark by organized religions. Seems like it." (unquote)

What do you all think...was the snake a reptilian?

The "Let us create man in our image" is a reference to the ancient pantheon.

In the beginning there were many gods, not just one.

The master and ruler being over them all, El.

So, that is why Elohim, Elohim being plural, Elohi being singular, is the origional pantheon of El.

Much like Zeus was the father god over all the other Greek gods.

However, I see where you are going with this, and I suppose it may be possible - but I guess we will never know until they revil theirselves or we die. (if you choose to beleive in that type of thing)

Reptillian, imo is a mistranslation or no translation, for people that fly (in spaceships). Birds are reptilian and I think that whatever the word was for these people (the Anunnaki), it was eventually mistranslated as reptilians.

Peace, sister.

I personally think you're on the right track here, although I take the reverse approach - I believe the 'reptilians' are interdimensional beings ("angels/demons") that have interacted with humanity through the ages, and it's just now more convenient and effective for them to be presented as extraterrestrial instead of extradimensional.

Seraphim in the original herbrew were also serpentile, on a side note. Be well.

Yes it was, not really a talking snake, you can imagine, but something of the sort, like in origins.




And later those gods mated with the "daughters of men" also stated in the OT. There are parts of the puzzle of our existence to be put together that are really interesting. We might not have to wait much longer to find out if we were kept in the dark by organized religions. Seems like it." (unquote)

Yes we were, in the dark is very good said, you can't see in the dark, we are just waking up, but it is important how we wake up, we don';t want to become like them, We have to bear responsability and don't lose our care, this is very important. If we take everything for granted and simply don't care at all then it was all for nothing.
Not everyone will wake up, the majority will remain in ignorance, already filled with careless, controled by the products and concepts they sell to them.

Religion might be religion, but that does not excuse the fact that there is a god.

The problem with religious interpretation is that it's up to interpretation. There is no doubt that many stories in the bible come from established myths from other ancient cultures. Not to mention that you can trace the history of Israel in god's demeanor throughout the Old Testament. When Israel is at peace, god is a nice guy who likes to provide for his creation. When they're at war god demands sacrifice and atonement for what is essentially his doing. Was the snake a reptile? Well snakes are reptiles yes, but what does it matter? Does the form that Satan takes in the bible change anything? No, not at all. Also, a snake is a reptile and not a reptilian.

How exactly do you know for sure that there is actually a creator?

The following Hebrew word study by Michael Heiser says you may be right...
...the serpent term is descriptive of the appearance and character of a being not a snake.

I'm doubtful the snake was a "reptillian". Or that there was a snake. Or a garden. The fact is, there is no evidence to support the existence of the garden of eden, or the existence of reptillians (or any race of "alien" existing, much less visiting Earth).

There is a source, a creator, a grand provider if you will. I know from my personal expiriance, that is enough for me to accept it.

That might be enough for you, but other people require facts and evidence. It isn't complicated to gather facts and evidence, unless of course you are trying to prove a creator, which is difficult because there are no facts or evidence to support the existence of a creator (or anything supernatural, for that matter).

Well, we know for a FACT humans didn't just pop up in their current form, so scientifically speaking the Genesis account is wrong. Add to that the fact that there's no objective evidence for the existence of reptilians, and that reptiles can't talk, and you should realize that the questions is somewhat redundant


Cliffnotes: talking snakes, hogwash, eden, hogwash, reptilians, hogwash...until someone provides objective evidence that proves me wrong

Well i wouldn't put my trust in Lord God as our creator. There is a verse in the Bible where a person observes three men from the entrance to he's tent. He runs towards them and kneels before one of them and calls him Lord God. This person describes three human beings " three men".

I also don't understand why Mosses suddenly addresses God as Lord God in Genesis chapter two?

Lord God never created Eden; not if the Bible is correct. Read this;


8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed
.

To me it reads as if Lord God created he's own garden in a already existing garden. Which God had already created in chapter 1.

God also created Man as male and female. Not as Adam and then Eve. God created them both at the same time.

There is no use to telling anything, I can make things up invent them, or tell the truth, you would not know if it's the truth or not so it does not really matter. All it matters is for me, it set it for me after I had a strong faith in a creator.
I always guided by what I saw around around me in nature, that was the strong key point in my faith regarding a creator, religion was on a second plan regarding my beilif in a god. In the end I got the signs I wanted so bad, it let me know it's there when I needed it. Now I know for a fact, and no one can take that away.

The supreme source, god is no man, I can assure you that, we are so small, like inscects, even smaller, very small creatures, so is our wisdom regarding what the creator is.
