let's not forget that enki is the one that 1) creates homo sapiens, 2) confuses the languages at babel and 3) warns the noah figure about the flood,
gives instructions on how to build the ark, gives the noah figure advice on how to keep enlil from going ballistic when he finds out some humans have
survived the flood.
he shows up in the I AM THAT I AM statement. and later shows up in the guise of jesus, to rescue the populace, once more, from the ire of enlil but
this time, permanently.
enlil is like the prosecuting attorney, the accuser. he's always angry. he doesn't like humans. he appears to hate female humans the most. this was
his planet. enki, on the other hand, is like the defense attorney. he created us and has been defending us in the court of anu, ever since. the real
story of how all this happened, is not generally agreed upon by many people, but here's my theoretical take on it
in the creation of the adam verses, it first describes the creation of the adam as male and female, made in the image of elohim. elohim is a plural
word, so is adam. this means there were male adam and female adam before there was an eve. this male and female adam were not hermaphroditic, they
were cloned from the elohim, some of which were male and some of which were female. new adam came into the world, not via procreation, but via
cloning/copying. this allowed population control, a sticky point for enlil. he was like an environmental scientist.
enki, on the other hand, was a geneticist. he created new life (plants, animals). life was his big thing. according to the sumerian-akkadian texts,
the planet had undergone a cataclysm and the anunnaki had to restore it. one of the ways in which they did this was to put the junior anunnaki to
work, getting the necessary resources from the earth, to rebuild its infrastructure. this required mining, and soon the junior annunaki grew tired of
the hard labor and staged a strike. i theorize the anunnaki were not using the earth as a domicile on a full time basis, but merely as a world of
resources they could tap into, this meant they weren't privy to the hardships of the junior anunnaki, who voiced their protest by not working and
since new clones were not made automatically, there was no one to take their place while they had a vacation.
it fell upon enki, to come up with a solution. this he did by creating workers via cloning of his own dna and the dna of various female anunnaki,
to do the hard work of the junior anunnaki. however, he spliced in some mammalian dna to allow the homo sapiens to be like himself and create new life
(this we call procreation). the end result of his endeavor was procreating homo sapiens.
enlil was not thrilled with this new creation, not at all. apparently, the junior anunnaki (here, theoretically represented by the first female and
male adam race, all of which were clones) did not procreate but all their body parts were totally regenerative. this we read as the "tree of life",
that section of dna responsible for regenerating all parts of the body.
when enlil realized the population explosion that would ensue from this decision, particularly if all their body parts were totally regenerative, he
had a pow wow with the divine council and requested that the adam race also be nerfed, so that 1) their lifespan was shortened and 2) the section of
dna responsible for full body regeneration (tree of life) be removed or blocked from unzipping so it could no longer replicate new parts to replace
worn out ones. he got approval from anu and company, based on his concerns for the ecology of his planet, and enki, the geneticist, was required to
make the required corrections to procreating adam dna. this is the reference to "you shall surely die" AND suffering in childbirth, since prior to
this, the adam race was fully regenerative and had no pain in childbirth (cloning didn't hurt, apparently).
this is also the source of the references to the legs of the serpent being removed, as the serpent here represents dna, and the legs represent the
ability of the dna responsible for full body regeneration to unzip so it could send out its code to replicate replacement parts. that part was either
removed or made unzippable (removed the legs/blocked ). it's also the source of the references to the serpent beguiling eve, because before then, the
female adam were not sexual beings. new adam were made without pain, without intercourse, without the mammal based, bloody, gooey, dangerous,
the big question is really, why did enlil not ask for the procreative dna to be removed instead of removing the regenerative dna. i think the answer
is obvious: procreating adam (characterized by the arrival of eve, the first mother) meant a hands free influx of new workers, so the anunnaki would
not have provide a constant clone supply. the clones would clone themselves via procreation and die off after so many years
