What if dinosaurs were a product of genetic engineering to begin with...all you ancient advanced something proponents out there will know where I am
going with this.
It is written that the battle of Mardok and Tiamat was brutal. That Mardok, faced all the terrible creations of Tiamat that made the gods tremble in
I am under the impression that the tales of Mardok, came from Babylonia, and not so much Sumaria. Still they have been jumbled together and mixed up
after too many years of neglect. It is difficult to say if the stories of Mardok, making the moon and such, were tales of planetary bodies or
attributes given to Mardok after by the Babylonians.
In any event, the creatures Tiamat is described as creating to oppose the Gods, that she made for kingu´s(Qingu´s) army kind of sound like
Imagine if Mardok, an ancient, (possibly an ancient intelligent human dinosaur hybrid) faced a struggle for power in which his opponent used advanced
science to build an army of genetically modified creatures, and dinosaurs were the beasts of burden for them. Like elephants were used in war.
I always thought that dinosaurs/ dragons/ and other mythological creatures were products of genetic engineering.
I always thought of the war of the Gods and the Titans, was a war of genetic engineering. Look at the way the birth of Mardok is described in my later
They were seen as a great evil since they were associated with the first evil the Gods/ ancients of antiquity faced. That is before they took on the
titles of great Satan, or demons, or angels / gods in response to the perception by humans /us of their actions.
It would explain all the heeby jeebies the bible has about altering Gods creation, and consequently our own perception of genetic manipulation
Maybe the planet earth/ Tiamat of old, had a ruler with the same name that caused her worlds destruction, for which our gods /advanced ancients had
record of, and some science of, and so we associate the war against Tiamat as the collision of a moon with Earth/ Tiamat, as only a celestial event.
When in actuality it was a consequence of a great war fought with unimaginable weapons, and soldiers / beasts of war.
Maybe the extinction event for dinosaurs was the product of an advanced planet killer weapon, that destroyed another planet, making the asteroid belt,
our moon, and a lesser version was used on earth, or a fragment of that explosion struck earth purposely so as to eradicate dinosaurs. The artificial
ancient dogs of war.
interesting fact... Qingu /kingu means unskilled laborer...maybe it once meant mindless beast of burden.....
too much imagination? maybe...it would make a great book and movie though. LOL.
In Babylonian mythology, Tiamat is a chaos monster, a primordial goddess of the ocean, mating with Abzû (the god of fresh water) to produce
younger gods. It is suggested that there are two parts to the Tiamat mythos, the first in which Tiamat is 'creatrix', through a "Sacred marriage"
between salt and fresh water, peacefully creating the cosmos through successive generations. In the second "Chaoskampf" Tiamat is considered the
monstrous embodiment of primordial chaos.
Although there are no early precedents for it, some sources identify her with images of a sea serpent or dragon. In the Enûma Elish, the Babylonian
epic of creation, she gives birth to the first generation of deities; she later makes war upon them and is killed by the storm-god Marduk. The heavens
and the earth are formed from her divided body.
Tiamat was known as Thalattē (as a variant of thalassa, the Greek word for "sea") in the Hellenistic Babylonian Berossus' first volume of universal
history. It is thought that the name of Tiamat was dropped in secondary translations of the original religious texts because some Akkadian copyists of
Enûma Elish substituted the ordinary word for "sea" for Tiamat, since the two names had become essentially the same, due to association.
The Enuma Elish is a Babylonian or Mesopotamian myth of creation recounting the struggle between cosmic order and chaos. It is basically a myth of
the cycle of seasons. It is named after its opening words and was recited on the fourth day of the ancient Babylonian New Year's festival.
The basic story exists in various forms in the area. This version is written in Akkadian, an old Babylonian dialect, and features Marduk, the patron
deity of the city of Babylon. A similar earlier version in ancient Sumerian has Anu, Enil and Ninurta as the heroes, suggesting that this version was
adapted to justify the religious practices in the cult of Marduk in Babylon.
[The Birth of Marduk]
In the chamber of fates, the abode of destinies,
A god was engendered, most able and wisest of gods. (80)
In the heart of Apsu was Marduk created,
In the heart of holy Apsu was Marduk created.
He who begot him was Ea, his father;
She who bore him was Damkina, his mother.
The breast of goddesses he did suck.
The nurse that nursed him filled him with awesomeness.
Alluring was his figure, sparkling the lift of his eyes.
Lordly was his gait, commanding from of old.
When Ea saw him, the father who begot him,
He exulted and glowed, his heart filled with gladness. (90)
He rendered him perfect and endowed him with a double godhead.
Greatly exalted was he above them, exceeding throughout.
Perfect were his members beyond comprehension,
Unsuited for understanding, difficult to perceive.
Four were his eyes, four were his ears;
When he moved his lips, fire blazed forth.
Large were all four hearing organs,
And the eyes, in like number, scanned all things.
He was the loftiest of the gods, surpassing was his stature;
His members were enormous, he was exceeding tall.
They form a council to prepare for the fight.
Mother Hubur, she who fashions all things,
Added matchless weapons, bore monster-serpents,
Sharp of tooth, unsparing of fang.
With venom for blood she has filled their bodies.
Roaring dragons she has clothed with terror,
Has crowned them with haloes, making them like gods,
Whoever beheld them, terror overcame him,
And that, with their bodies reared up, none might turn them back.
She set up the Viper, the Dragon, and the monster Lahamu, (140)
