"Here we seem to have a recollection of the destruction of Atlantis. Mr. Bryant says, "Ad and Ada signify 'the first'." The Persians called the first man "Ad−amah." "Adon" was one of the names of the Supreme God of the Phoenicians; from it was derived the name of the Greek god "Ad−onis." The Arv−'ad' of Genesis was the Ar−'Ad' of the Cushites; it is now known as Ru−'Ad'. It is a series of connected cities twelve miles in length, along the coast, full of the most massive and gigantic ruins. Sir William Jones gives the tradition of the Persians as to the earliest ages."
"He says: "Moshan assures us that in the opinion of the best informed Persians the first monarch of Iran, 'and of the whole earth', was Mashab−'Ad'; that he received from the Creator, and promulgated among men a sacred book, 'in a heavenly language', to which the Mussulman author gives the Arabic title of 'Desatir,' or 'Regulations.' Mashab−'Ad' was, in the opinion of the ancient Persians, the person left at the end of the last great cycle, and consequently the father of the present world."
"He and his wife having survived the former cycle, were blessed with a numerous progeny; he planted gardens, invented ornaments, forged weapons, taught men to take the fleece from sheep and make clothing; he built cities, constructed palaces, fortified towns, and introduced arts and commerce."
"We have already seen that the primal gods of this people are identical with the gods of the Greek mythology, and were originally kings of Atlantis. But it seems that these ancient divinities are grouped together as "'the Aditya';" and in this name "Ad−itya" we find a strong likeness to the Semitic "Adites," and another reminiscence of Atlantis, or Adlantis."
"In corroboration of this view we find, 1. The gods who are grouped together as the Aditya are the most ancient in the Hindoo mythology. 2. They are all gods of light, or solar gods. (Whitney's Oriental and Linguistic Studies," p. 39.) 3. There are twelve of them. ('Ibid'.) 4. These twelve gods presided over twelve months in the year. 5. They are a dim recollection of a very remote past."
"Says Whitney, "It seems as if here was an attempt on the part of the Indian religion to take a new development in a moral direction, which a change in the character and circumstances of the people has caused to fail in the midst, and fall back again into forgetfulness, while yet half finished and indistinct." ('Ibid'.)
" 6. These gods are called "the sons of Aditi," just as in the Bible we have allusions to "the sons of Adab," who were the first metallurgists and musicians. "Aditi is not a goddess. She is addressed as a queen's daughter, she of fair children." 7. The Aditya "are elevated above all imperfections; they do not sleep or wink." The Greeks represented their gods as equally wakeful and omniscient."
"Their character is all truth; they hate and punish guilt." We have seen the same traits ascribed by the Greeks to the Atlantean kings. 8. The sun is sometimes addressed as an Aditya. 9. Among the Aditya is Varuna, the equivalent of Uranos, whose identification with Atlantis I have shown. In the vedas Varuna is "the god of the ocean."
"10. The Aditya represent an earlier and purer form of religion: "While in hymns to the other deities long: life, wealth, power, are the objects commonly prayed for, of the Aditya is craved purity, forgiveness of sin, freedom from guilt, and repentance." ("Oriental and Linguistic Studies," p. 43.) 11. The Aditya, like the Adites, are identified with the doctrine of the immortality of the soul. Yama is the god of the abode beyond the grave. In the Persian story he appears as Yima, and "'is made ruler of the golden age and founder of the Paradise'." ('Ibid'., p. 45.) (See "Zamna," p. 167 'ante'.) In view of all these facts, one cannot doubt that the legends of the "sons of Ad," "the Adites," and "the Aditya," all refer to Atlantis."
Here states the connections of the "12" Gods of the Hindoo scriptures, to the 12 Kings of Atlantis.
Now, based from connecting the Greek and the Hindu, the God Varuna (like Uranus) was originally the God of heaven, until he ("all of a sudden") becomes the God of the ocean, to which is basically Cronus defeating Uranus (Varuna), and casting him down.
"Mr. George Smith, in the Chaldean account of the Creation (p. 78), deciphered from the Babylonian tablets, shows that there was an original race of men at the beginning of Chaldean history, a dark race, the 'Zalmat−qaqadi', who were called 'Ad−mi', or 'Ad−ami'; they were the race "who had fallen," and were contradistinguished from "the 'Sarku', or light race."
The "fall" probably refers to their destruction by a deluge, in consequence of their moral degradation and the indignation of the gods. The name Adam is used in these legends, but as the name of a race, not of a man. Genesis (chap. v., 2) distinctly says that God created man male and female, and "called 'their' name Adam."
That is to say, the people were the Ad−ami, the people of "Ad," or Atlantis. "The author of the Book of Genesis," says M. Schoebel, "in speaking of the men who were swallowed up by the Deluge, always describes them as 'Haadam,' 'Adamite humanity.'" The race of Cain lived and multiplied far away from the land of Seth; in other words, far from the land destroyed by the Deluge."
"Josephus, who gives us the primitive traditions of the Jews, tells us (chap. ii., p. 42) that "Cain travelled over many countries" before he came to the land of Nod. The Bible does not tell us that the race of Cain perished in the Deluge. "Cain went out from the presence of Jehovah;" he did not call on his name; the people that were destroyed were the "sons of Jehovah". All this indicates that large colonies had been sent out by the mother−land before it sunk in the sea."
"Across the ocean we find the people of Guatemala claiming their descent from a goddess called 'At−tit', or grandmother, who lived for four hundred years, and first taught the worship of the true God, which they afterward forgot. (Bancroft's "Native Races," vol. iii., p. 75.) While the famous Mexican calendar stone shows that the sun was commonly called 'tonatiuh' but when it was referred to as the god of the Deluge it was then called 'Atl−tona−ti−uh', or 'At−onatiuh'. (Valentini's "Mexican Calendar Stone," art. 'Maya Archeaology', p. 15.)"
"We thus find the sons of 'Ad' at the base of all the most ancient races of men, to wit, the Hebrews, the Arabians, the Chaldeans, the Hindoos, the Persians, the Egyptians, the Ethiopians, the Mexicans, and the Central Americans; testimony that all these races traced their beginning back to a dimly remembered Ad−lantis."
Now, if the people of "Ad" or Atlanteans were red-skinned people, then why do I keep finding these gods to be black in complexion? Were there other races jumbled together? Are they really the "Sons of God", or were they the "Children of men"? Because based from these artifacts and stories, to the Gods being black, and then those that have red hair, would seem to be more than one race living on Atlantis. Perhaps, this will be answered later on in this segment.
