Antarctica Mystery: Legends of Atlantis

Now, based from learning more about the truth of Atlantis and the culture's connections to Mars, the more I begin to find that there were many areas that were called Atlantis (as will be detailed later on this theory). Many sources details Atlantis to be Antarctica when it was stated to be tropical at one point, then to America, the Island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, or even up in the North where the Mercator map details a mountain above Russia, Canada and Europe. Others states that the location can be around the Pacific Areas, though many detail there was a land called "Lemuria" and how it sunk to the Ocean.

Anyway, in the Atlantis book details a chapter "CHAPTER VI. GENESIS CONTAINS A HISTORY OF ATLANTIS": "Even in the history of the Creation we find these similarities: The Bible tells us (Gen. i., 2) that in the beginning the earth was without form and void, and covered with water. In the Quiche legends we are told, "at first all was sea−−no man, animal, bird, or green herb−−there was nothing to be seen but the sea and the heavens." The Bible says (Gen. i., 2), "And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." The Quiche legend says, "The Creator−−the Former, the Dominator−−the feathered serpent−−those that give life, moved upon the waters like a glowing light."

"The Bible says (Gen. i., 9), "And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so."

"The Quiche legend says, "The creative spirits cried out 'Earth!' and in an instant it was formed, and rose like a vapor−cloud; immediately the plains and the mountains arose, and the cypress and pine appeared." The Bible tells us, "And God saw that it was good." The Quiche legend says, "Then Gucumatz was filled with joy, and cried out, 'Blessed be thy coming, O Heart of Heaven, Hurakan, thunder−bolt."

"In Genesis (chap. ii., 7) we are told, "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground." The Quiche legend says. "The first man was made of clay; but he had no intelligence, and was consumed in the water. In Genesis the first man is represented as naked. The Aztec legend says, "The sun was much nearer the earth then than now, and his grateful warmth rendered clothing unnecessary."

"Even the temptation of Eve reappears in the American legends. Lord Kingsborough says: "The Toltecs had paintings of a garden, with a single tree standing in the midst; round the root of the tree is entwined a serpent, whose head appearing above the foliage displays the face of a woman. Torquemada admits the existence of this tradition among them, and agrees with the Indian historians, who affirm that this was the first woman in the world, who bore children, and from whom all mankind are descended."

("Mexican Antiquities," vol. viii., p. 19.)

"There is also a legend of Suchiquecal, who disobediently gathered roses from a tree, and thereby disgraced and injured herself and all her posterity."

("Mexican Antiquities," vol. vi., p. 401.)

"The legends of the Old World which underlie Genesis, and were used by Milton in the "Paradise Lost," appear in the Mexican le(fends of a war of angels in heaven, and the fall of 'Zou−tem−que' ('Soutem', 'Satan'−−Arabic, 'Shatana?') and the other rebellious spirits. We have seen that the Central Americans possessed striking parallels to the account of the Deluge in Genesis".

This pertains to the Ancient battle between Michael and his angels and the Red Dragon and his angels. This is where the story of the Gods and the Titans and the Hindu Devas/Suras battling the Danavas/Asuras is based on. The vajra weapon or what's considered the thunderbolt relates to Huracan, Zeus, Indra, Thor, Marduk and others using the weapon to defeat the other foe.

"Father Duran, in his MS. "Historia Antiqua de la Nueva Espana," A.D. 1585, quotes from the lips of a native of Cholula, over one hundred years old, a version of the legend as to the building of the great pyramid of Cholula. It is as follows:"

"In the beginning, before the light of the sun had been created, this land (Cholula) was in obscurity and darkness, and void of any created thing; all was a plain, without hill or elevation, encircled in every part by water, without tree or created thing; and immediately 'after the light and the sun arose in the east' there appeared gigantic men of deformed stature and possessed the land, and desiring to see the nativity of the sun, as well as his occident, proposed to go and seek them."

"Dividing themselves into two parties, some journeyed to the west and others toward the east; these travelled; until the sea cut off their road, whereupon they determined to return to the place from which they started, and arriving at this place (Cholula), not finding the means of reaching the sun, enamored of his light and beauty, they determined to build a tower so high that its summit should reach the sky."

"Having collected materials for the purpose, they found a very adhesive clay and bitumen, with which they speedily commenced to build the tower; and having reared it to the greatest possible altitude, so that they say it reached to the sky, the Lord of the Heavens, enraged, said to the inhabitants of the sky, 'Have you observed how they of the earth have built a high and haughty tower to mount hither, being enamored of the light of the sun and his beauty?"

"Come and confound them, because it is not right that they of the earth, living in the flesh, should mingle with us.' Immediately the inhabitants of the sky sallied forth like flashes of lightning; they destroyed the edifice, and divided and scattered its builders to all parts of the earth."

"It must not be forgotten that this legend was taken down by a Catholic priest, shortly after the conquest of Mexico, from the lips of an old Indian who was born before Columbus sailed from Spain. Observe the resemblances between this legend and the Bible account of the building of the Tower of Babel:

"All was a plain without hill or elevation," says the Indian legend."They found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there," says the Bible. They built of brick in both cases. "Let us build us a tower whose top may reach unto heaven," says the Bible."

"They determined to build a tower so high that its summit should reach the sky," says the Indian legend. "And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the children of men had builded. And the Lord said, Behol.... nothing will be restrained from them which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down and confound them," says the Bible record."

"The Lord of the Heavens, enraged, said to the inhabitants of the sky, 'Have you observed,' etc. Come and confound them," says the Indian record. "And the Lord scattered them abroad from thence on all the face of the earth," says the Bible. "They scattered its builders to all parts of the earth," says the Mexican legend."

"Can any one doubt that these two legends must have sprung in some way from one another, or from some common source? There are enough points of difference to show that the American is not a servile copy of the Hebrew legend. In the former the story comes from a native of Cholula: it is told under the shadow of the mighty pyramid it commemorates; it is a local legend which he repeats."

"The men who built it, according to his account, were foreigners. They built it to reach the sun−−that is to say, as a sun−temple; while in the Bible record Babel was built to perpetuate the glory of its architects. In the Indian legend the gods stop the work by a great storm, in the Bible account by confounding the speech of the people." So, it already details the deluge and the people having one language to building the tower of Babel."

Now, from this book was said that the Babel could resemble the Aztec Pyramids and the Pyramids of Egypt. And then came the Gods to confound their language, although another Indian story states that the gods sent thunder and rain to scatter them (And you can read the rest yourself, as I'm only taking certain parts to discuss here).

Let's look further in this segment in which becomes very interesting.... "But the resemblances between Genesis and the American legends do not stop here. We are told (Gen. ii., 21) that "the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam," and while he slept God made Eve out of one of his ribs."

"According to the Quiche tradition, there were four men from whom the races of the world descended (probably a recollection of the red, black, yellow, and white races); and these men were without wives, and the Creator made wives for them "while they slept."

"Some wicked misanthrope referred to these traditions when he said, "And man's first sleep became his last repose." In Genesis (chap. iii., 22), "And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever:" therefore God drove him out of the garden."

"In the Quiche legends we are told, "The gods feared that they had made men too perfect, and they breathed a cloud of mist over their vision." When the ancestors of the Quiches migrated to America the Divinity parted the sea for their passage, as the Red Sea was parted for the Israelites."

"The story of Samson is paralleled in the history of a hero named Zipanca, told of in the "Popol Vuh," who, being captured by his enemies and placed in a pit, pulled down the building in which his captors had assembled, and killed four hundred of them."

This is the story in the Popol Vuh dealing with Zipacna and the 400 boys, and how it has similarities to Samson. The story is about how the 400 boys who were trying to construct a hut and cut a tree down but couldn’t lift it up, so Zipacna being immensely strong offered to help them “carry” the tree to the hut. 

"But the boys decided that he is too strong to exist, so they decided to kill him after the hole is finished and the pole is placed in it. But Zipacna knew their deceit, so when he was digging the hole he carved a side tunnel to escape as the boys push the tree into the hole to kill him."

"He survives and waits on the “third day” until the boys were drunk with wine celebrating his death in their revelry, until he arose and felled the tree onto their hut thus killing them all. Then the boys all become the Pleiades star clusters in the heavens."

This seemingly connects to the Biblical "Samson", and Jesus carrying the cross in the form of a “tree”, and being killed and rose on the third day. Although I see the symbolism towards Jesus, but here he reveals that this connects to the legend of "Samson" and the "Philistines" story.

"There were giants in those days," says the Bible. A great deal of the Central American history is taken up with the doings of an ancient race of giants called Quinames. This parallelism runs through a hundred particulars: Both the Jews and Mexicans worshipped toward the east. Both called the south "the right hand of the world." "Both burnt incense toward the four corners of the earth. Confession of sin and sacrifice of atonement were common to both peoples. Both were punctilious about washings and ablutions. Both believed in devils, and both were afflicted with leprosy. Both considered women who died in childbirth as worthy of honor as soldiers who fell in battle. Both punished adultery with stoning to death. As David leaped and danced before the ark of the Lord, so did the Mexican monarchs before their idols. Both had an ark, the abiding−place of an invisible god. Both had a species of serpent−worship."

Here he establishes the connections between the Jews and the Mexicans. Now, in the chapter "The God of fire" I detail the connections between the Mayan God "Kiniche' Kakmaw", Winnebago story of "Red Horn" and Fudo myo-o/Acala of the Japanese. So, from Ignatius' studies is revealing their connections. Then from "The real Aryans", it's revealed that the people would have a "red dot" on their forehead, as stated in "The Book of Mormon" of Alma chapter 3:13 states.

"The same singular custom which is found among the Jews and the Hindoos, for "a man to raise up seed for his deceased brother by marrying his widow," was found among the Central American nations. (Las Casas, MS. "Hist. Apoloq.," cap. ccxiii., ccxv. Torquemada, "Monarq. Ind.," tom. ii., 377−8.)

"No one but the Jewish high−priest might enter the Holy of Holies. A similar custom obtained in Peru. Both ate the flesh of the sacrifices of atonement; both poured the blood of the sacrifice on the earth; they sprinkled it, they marked persons with it, they smeared it upon walls and stones."

"The Mexican temple, like the Jewish, faced the east. "As among the Jews the ark was a sort of portable temple, in which the Deity was supposed to be continually present, so among the Mexicans, the Cherokees, and the Indians of Michoacan and Honduras, an ark was held in the highest veneration, and was considered an object too sacred to be touched by any but the priests." (Kingsborough, "Mex. Antiq., "vol. viii., p.258.)

"This very Interesting as the ark would be ordained the sameway as the Israelites of the East. Knowing the Japanese, Indian and American Indian connections) "The Peruvians believed that the rainbow was a sign that the earth would not be again destroyed by a deluge. ('Ibid'., p. 25.)" "The Jewish custom of laying the sins of the people upon the head of an animal, and turning him out into the wilderness, had its counterpart among the Mexicans, who, to cure a fever, formed a dog of maize paste and left it by the roadside, saying the first passer−by would carry away the illness. (Dorman, "Prim. Super.," p. 59.)"

"Jacob's ladder had its duplicate in the vine or tree of the Ojibbeways, which led from the earth to heaven, up and down which the spirits passed. ('Ibid'., p. 67.)

"Both Jews and Mexicans offered water to a stranger that be might wash his feet; both ate dust in token of humility; both anointed with oil; both sacrificed prisoners; both periodically separated the women, and both agreed in the strong and universal idea of uncleanness connected with that period."

"Both believed in the occult power of water, and both practised baptism. "Then the Mexican midwife gave the child to taste of the water, putting her moistened fingers in its mouth, and said, 'Take this; by this thou hast to live on the earth, to grow and to flourish; through this we get all things that support existence on the earth; receive it.'"

"Then with moistened fingers she touched the breast of the child, and said, 'Behold the pure water that washes and cleanses thy heart, that removes all filthiness; receive it: may the goddess see good to purify And cleanse thine heart.' Then the midwife poured water upon the head of the child, saying, 'O my grandson−−my son−−take this water of the Lord of the world, which is thy life, invigorating and refreshing, washing and cleansing."

"I pray that this celestial water, blue and light blue, may enter into thy body, and there live; I pray that it may destroy in thee and put away from thee all the things evil and adverse that were 'given thee before the beginning of the world'.... Wheresoever thou art in this child, O thou hurtful thing, begone! leave it, put thyself apart; for now does it live anew, and 'anew is it born'; now again is it purified and cleansed; now again is it shaped and engendered by our mother, the goddess of water. (Bancroft's "Native Races," vol. iii., p. 372.)"

"Here we find many resemblances to the Christian ordinance of baptism: the pouring of the water on the head, the putting of the fingers in the mouth, the touching of the breast, the new birth, and the washing away of the original sin. The Christian rite, we know, was not a Christian invention, but was borrowed from ancient times, from the great storehouse of Asiatic traditions and beliefs. The Mexicans hung up the heads of their sacrificed enemies; this was also a Jewish custom:"

"And the Lord said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the Lord against the sun, that the fierce anger of the Lord may be turned away from Israel. And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one his men that were joined unto Baal−peor." (Numb., xxv., 4, 5.)"

"The Scythians, Herodotus tells us, scalped their enemies, and carried the scalp at the pommel of their saddles; the Jews probably scalped their enemies: "But God shall wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of such a one as goeth on still in his trespasses." (Psa., lxviii., 21.) "The ancient Scandinavians practised scalping. When Harold Harefoot seized his rival, Alfred, with six hundred followers, be "had them maimed, blinded, hamstrung, scalped, or embowelled. (Taine's "Hist. Eng. Lit.," p. 35.) Herodotus describes the Scythian mode of taking the scalp: He makes a cut round the head near the ears, and shakes the skull out."

"This is precisely the Indian custom. "The more scalps a man has," says Herodotus, "the more highly he is esteemed among them." The Indian scalp−lock is found on the Egyptian monuments as one of the characteristics of the Japhetic Libyans, who shaved all the head except one lock in the middle. The Mantchoos of Tartary wear a scalp−lock, as do the modern Chinese. Byron describes the heads of the dead Tartars under the walls of Corinth, devoured by the wild dogs: "Crimson and green were the shawls of their wear, And each scalp had a single long tuft of hair, All the rest was shaven and bare."

"These resemblances are so striking and so numerous that repeated attempts have been made to prove that the inhabitants of America are the descendants of the Jews; some have claimed that they represented "the lost tribes" of that people.

"But the Jews were never a maritime or emigrating people; they formed no colonies; and it is impossible to believe (as has been asserted) that they left their flocks and herds, marched across the whole face of Asia, took ships and sailed across the greatest of the oceans to a continent of the existence of which they had no knowledge."

("Ignatius Donnelly", though connecting these references together, doesn't know the Jews have ranged from the Hindoos to the Chinese, as they spread from east to west. And it would be a wonder why they would have the ark and similar customs as they are the same people. "If we seek the origin of these extraordinary coincidences in opinions and habits, we must go far back of the time of the lost tribes.")

"We must seek it in the relationship of the Jews to the family of Noah, and in the identity of the Noachic race destroyed in the Deluge with the people of the drowned Atlantis. Nor need it surprise us to find traditions perpetuated for thousands upon thousands of years, especially among a people having a religious priesthood."

"The essence of religion is conservatism; little is invented; nothing perishes; change comes from without; and even when one religion is supplanted by another its gods live on as the demons of the new faith, or they pass into the folk−lore and fairy stories of the people."

"We see Votan, a hero in America, become the god Odin or Woden in Scandinavia; and when his worship as a god dies out Odin survives (as Dr. Dasent has proved) in the Wild Huntsman of the Hartz, and in the Robin Hood (Oodin) of popular legend. The Hellequin of France becomes the Harlequin of our pantomimes. William Tell never existed; he is a myth; a survival of the sun−god Apollo, Indra, who was worshipped on the altars of Atlantis. Nothing here but it doth change into something rich and strange."

"The rite of circumcision dates back to the first days of Phoenicia, Egypt, and the Cushites. It, too, was probably an Atlantean custom, invented in the Stone Age. Tens of thousands of years have passed since the Stone Age; the ages of copper, bronze, and iron bare intervened; and yet to this day the Hebrew rabbi performs the ceremony of circumcision with a stone knife."

"Frothingham says, speaking of St. Peter's Cathedral, in Rome: "Into what depths of antiquity the ceremonies carried me back! To the mysteries of Eleusis; to the sacrificial rites of Phoenicia. The boys swung the censors as censors had been swung in the adoration of Bacchus."

"The girdle and cassock of the priests came from Persia; the veil and tonsure were from Egypt; the alb and chasuble were prescribed by Numa Pompilius; the stole was borrowed from the official who used to throw it on the back of the victim that was to be sacrificed; the white surplice was the same as described by Juvenal and Ovid." 

"GREAT SERPENT MOUND, OHIO. Compare our representation of the great serpent−mound in Adams County, Ohio, with the following description of a great serpent−mound in Scotland: "'Serpent−worship in the West'.−−Some additional light appears to have been thrown upon ancient serpent−worship in the West by the recent archaeological explorations of Mr. John S. Phené, F.G.S., F.R.G.S., in Scotland."

"Mr. Phené has just investigated a curious earthen mound in Glen Feechan, Argyleshire, referred to by him, at the late meeting of the British Association in Edinburgh, as being in the form of a serpent or saurian. The mound, says the 'Scotsman', is a most perfect one. The head is a large cairn, and the body of the earthen reptile 300 feet long; and in the centre of the bead there were evidences, when Mr. Phené first visited it, of an altar having been placed there."

"The position with regard to Ben Cruachan is most remarkable. The three peaks are seen over the length of the reptile when a person is standing on the head, or cairn. The shape can only be seen so as to be understood when looked down upon from an elevation, as the outline cannot be understood unless the whole of it can be seen."

"This is most perfect when the spectator is on the bead of the animal form, or on the lofty rock to the west of it. This mound corresponds almost entirely with one 700 feet long in America, an account of which was lately published, after careful survey, by Mr. Squier. The altar toward the head in each case agrees."

"In the American mound three rivers (also objects of worship with the ancients) were evidently identified. The number three was a sacred number in all ancient mythologies. The sinuous winding and articulations of the vertebral spinal arrangement are anatomically perfect in the Argyleshire mound."

"The gentlemen present with Mr. Phené during his investigation state that beneath the cairn forming the head of the animal was found a megalithic chamber, in which was a quantity of charcoal and burnt earth and charred nutshells, a flint instrument, beautifully and minutely serrated at the edge, and burnt bones."

"The back or spine of the serpent, which, as already stated, is 300 feet long, was found, beneath the peat moss, to be formed by a careful adjustment of stones, the formation of which probably prevented the structure from being obliterated by time and weather." ('Pall Mall Gazette'.)

Now, I am going to go through some interesting topics based from Ignatius Donnelly's book. One example would be the "artificial head deformation": "An examination of the American monuments shows (see figure on page 269) that the people represented were in the habit of flattening the skull by artificial means. The Greek and Roman writers had mentioned this practice, but it was long totally forgotten by the civilized world, until it was discovered, as an unheard−of wonder, to be the usage among the Carib Islanders, and several Indian tribes in North America."

"It was afterward found that the ancient Peruvians and Mexicans practised this art: several flattened Peruvian skulls are depicted in Morton's "Crania Americana." It is still in use among the Flat−head Indians of the north−western part of the United States."

"In 1849 a remarkable memoir appeared from the pen of M. Rathke, showing that similar skulls had been found near Kertsch, in the Crimea, and calling attention to the book of Hippocrates, "De Aeris, Aquis et Locu," lib. iv., and a passage of Strabo, which speaks of the practice among the Scythians. In 1854 Dr. Fitzinger published a learned memoir on the skulls of the Avars, a branch of the Uralian race of Turks."

"He shows that the practice of flattening the head had existed from an early date throughout the East, and described an ancient skull, greatly distorted by artificial means, which had lately been found in Lower Austria. Skulls similarly flattened have been found in Switzerland and Savoy. The Huns under Attila had the same practice of flattening the heads. Professor Anders Retzius proved (see "Smithsonian Report," 1859) that the custom still exists in the south of France, and in parts of Turkey."

"Not long since a French physician surprised the world by the fact that nurses in Normandy were still giving the children's heads a sugar−loaf shape by bandages and a tight cap, while in Brittany they preferred to press it round. No doubt they are doing so to this day." (Tylor's "Anthropology," p. 241.)"

"So, it seems that this practice was done more frequently than what people are told. Throughout this segment, he goes through the mini chapters based on the "flat head" practices from Turkey to Egypt: "The annexed ancient Egyptian heads, copied from the monuments, indicate either that the people of the Nile deformed their beads by pressure upon the front of the skull, or that there was some race characteristic which gave this appearance to their heads."

"These heads are all the heads of priests, and therefore represented the aristocratic class. (He gives Illustrations for demonstration, but the piece I'm reading from doesn't show) "We must add the fact that the extraordinary practice of deforming the skull was found all over Europe and America to the catalogue of other proofs that the people of both continents were originally united in blood and race. With the couvade, the practice of circumcision, unity of religious beliefs and customs, folk−lore, and alphabetical signs, language and flood legends, we array together a mass of unanswerable proofs of prehistoric identity of race."

Then comes another chapter called "TRADITIONS OF ATLANTIS." And here, Ignatius reveals the "Giants" and their connections to the megalithic monuments throughout the different parts of the world: "We find allusions to the Atlanteans in the most ancient traditions of many different races. The great 'antediluvian' king of the Mussulman was Shedd−Ad−Ben−Ad, or Shed−Ad, the son of Ad, or Atlantis. Among the Arabians the first inhabitants of that country are known as the Adites, from their progenitor, who is called Ad, the grandson of Ham. These Adites were probably the people of Atlantis or Ad−lantis."

"They are personified by a monarch 'to whom everything is ascribed', and to whom is assigned several centuries of life." ("Ancient History of the East," Lenormant and Chevallier, vol. ii., p. 295.), Ad came from the northeast. "He married a thousand wives, had four thousand sons, and lived twelve hundred years. His descendants multiplied considerably. After his death his sons Shadid and Shedad reigned in succession over the Adites. In the time of the latter the people of Ad were a thousand tribes, each composed of several thousands of men. Great conquests are attributed to Shedad; he subdued, it is said, all Arabia and Irak."

"The migration of the Canaanites, their establishment in Syria, and the Shepherd invasion of Egypt are, by many Arab writers, attributed to an expedition of Shedad." ('Ibid'., p. 296.) Shedad built a palace ornamented with superb columns, and surrounded by a magnificent garden. It was called Irem. "It was a paradise that Shedad had built in imitation of the celestial Paradise, of whose delights he had heard." ("Ancient History of the East," p. 296.)

"In other words, an ancient, sun−worshipping, powerful, and conquering race overran Arabia at the very dawn of history; they were the sons of Adlantis: their king tried to create a palace and garden of Eden like that of Atlantis. The Adites are remembered by the Arabians as a great and civilized race."

"They are depicted as men of gigantic stature; their strength was equal to their size, and they easily moved enormous blocks of stone." ('Ibid'.) They were architects and builders. "They raised many monuments of their power; and hence, among the Arabs, arose the custom of calling great ruins "buildings of the Adites." To this day the Arabs say "as old as Ad."

"In the Koran allusion is made to the edifices they built on "high places for vain uses;" expressions proving that their "idolatry was considered to have been tainted with Sabæism or star−worship." ('Ibid'.) "In these legends," says Lenormant, "we find traces of a wealthy nation, constructors of great buildings, with an advanced civilization, analogous to that of Chaldea, professing a religion similar to the Babylonian; a nation, in short, with whom material progress was allied to great moral depravity and obscene rites."

"These facts must be true and strictly historical, for they are everywhere met with among the Cushites, as among the Canaanites, their brothers by origin. Nor is there wanting a great catastrophe which destroys the whole Adite nation, except a very few who escape because they had renounced idolatry. A black cloud assails their country, from which proceeds a terrible hurricane (the water−spout?) which sweeps away everything."

"The first Adites were followed by a second Adite race; probably the colonists who had escaped the Deluge. The centre of its power was the country of Sheba proper. This empire endured for a thousand years. The Adites are represented upon the Egyptian monuments as very much like the Egyptians themselves; in other words, they were a red or sunburnt race: their great temples were pyramidal, surmounted by buildings. ("Ancient History of the East," p. 321.)

"The Sabæans," says Agatharchides ("De Mari Erythræo," p. 102), "have in their houses an incredible number of vases, and utensils of all sorts, of gold and silver, beds and tripods of silver, and all the furniture of astonishing richness. Their buildings have porticos with columns sheathed with gold, or surmounted by capitals of silver. On the friezes, ornaments, and the framework of the doors they place plates of gold incrusted with precious stones."

Let's see what Ignatius states: "The Adites worshipped the gods of the Phoenicians under names but slightly changed; "their religion was especially solar... It was originally a religion without images, without idolatry, and without a priesthood." ('Ibid'., p. 325.) They "worshipped the sun from the tops of pyramids." ('Ibid'.)"

"They believed in the immortality of the soul. In all these things we see resemblances to the Atlanteans. The great Ethiopian or Cushite Empire, which in the earliest ages prevailed, as Mr. Rawlinson says, "from the Caucasus to the Indian Ocean, from the shores of the Mediterranean to the mouth of the Ganges," was the empire of Dionysos, the empire of "Ad," the empire of Atlantis."

"El Eldrisi called the language spoken to this day by the Arabs of Mahrah, in Eastern Arabia, "the language of the people of Ad," and Dr. J. H. Carter, in the 'Bombay Journal' of July, 1847, says, "It is the softest and sweetest language I have ever heard."

"It would be interesting to compare this primitive tongue with the languages of Central America. The god Thoth of the Egyptians, who was the god of a foreign country, and who invented letters, was called At−hothes. We turn now to another ancient race, the Indo−European family−−the Aryan race. In Sanscrit 'Adim', means first. Among the Hindoos the first man was 'Ad'−ima, his wife was Heva. They dwelt upon an island, said to be Ceylon; they left the island and reached the main−land, when, by a great convulsion of nature, their communication with the parent land was forever cut off."

So, here states that the giants were like the Egyptians themselves, but only "bigger" in stature wise. It seems to coincide with Edgar Cayce's statements on Atlantis, he says the Atlanteans were a people of "red-complexion", and maybe the origin of "Rh-negative" blood. This is mentioned in the Quran, based on the destruction of the people of "Ad." However, if the Atlanteans would be depicted as "red-colored", then can this be the case as the Adamites being the same thing? As the Atlanteans stemmed from Adam and Eve? For Adam (as some sources states) was said to mean "red" or "ruddy".

Based from "Rh-negative", I give two accounts from Edgar Cayce on his statements as the Atlanteans being a red complexioned people. The term "Adam" were meant to be "red", thus based from his lineage were the red people, thus called the American Indian nations. I had the notion that if Atlantis had fell under water, then some of those inhabitants had went to Europe, America and Africa. Then from there is most likely where the descendants of the Ayrans came to be, as the later Mongolian and Indian nations are led by the fire God into India and China.

"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, based from Ignatius' book of Atlantis, states the Greco-Roman and Phoenician gods to be the "Kings of Atlantis". Here are statements from Sir Frances Bacon:

Lord Bacon said: "The mythology of the Greeks, which their oldest writers do not pretend to have invented, was no more than a light air, which had passed from a more ancient people into the flutes of the Greeks, which they modulated to such descants as best suited their fancies."

"This profoundly wise and great man, who has illuminated every subject which he has touched, guessed very close to the truth in this utterance. The Hon. W. E. Gladstone has had quite a debate of late with Mr. Cox as to whether the Greek mythology was underlaid by a nature worship, or a planetary or solar worship. Peru, worshipping the sun and moon and planets, probably represents very closely the simple and primitive religion of Atlantis, with its sacrifices of fruits and flowers."

"This passed directly to their colony in Egypt. We find the Egyptians in their early ages sun and planet worshippers. Ptah was the object of their highest adoration. He is the father of the god of the sun, the ruler of the region of light. Ra was the sun−god. He was the supreme divinity at On, or Heliopolis, near Memphis. His symbol was the solar disk, supported by two rings."

"He created all that exists below the heavens. The Babylonian trinity was composed of Idea, Anu, and Bel. Bel represented the sun, and was the favorite god. Sin was the goddess of the moon. The Phoenicians were also sun−worshippers. The sun was represented by Baal−Samin, the great god, the god of light and the heavens, the creator and rejuvenator."

"The attributes of both Baal and Moloch (the good and bad powers of the sun) were united in the Phoenician god Melkart, "king of the city," whom the inhabitants of Tyre considered their special patron. The Greeks called him "Melicertes," and identified him with Hercules."

"By his great strength and power he turned evil into good, brought life out of destruction, pulled back the sun to the earth at the time of the solstices, lessened excessive beat and cold, and rectified the evil signs of the zodiac. In Phoenician legends he conquers the savage races of distant coasts, founds the ancient settlements on the Mediterranean, and plants the rocks in the Straits of Gibraltar. ("American Cyclopædia," art. 'Mythology'.)

"The Egyptians worshipped the sun under the name of Ra; the Hindoos worshipped the sun under the name of Rama; while the great festival of the sun, of the Peruvians, was called Ray−mi."

"Sun−worship, as the ancient religion of Atlantis, underlies all the superstitions of the colonies of that country. The Samoyed woman says to the sun, "When thou, god, risest, I too rise from my bed." Every morning even now the Brahmans stand on one foot, with their hands held out before them and their faces turned to the east, adoring the sun."

"In Germany or France one may still see the peasant take off his hat to the rising sun." ("Anthropology," p. 361.) The Romans, even, in later times, worshipped the sun at Emesa, under the name of Elagabalus, "typified in the form of a black conical stone, which it was believed had fallen from heaven."

"The conical stone was the emblem of Bel. Did it have relation to the mounds and pyramids? Sun−worship was the primitive religion of the red men of America. It was found among all the tribes. (Dorman, "Origin of Primitive Superstitions, p. 338.) The Chichimecs called the sun their father. The Comanches have a similar belief."

Now, did you catch that? Here it's mentioned the Romans worshiping the Sun under the named "Elagabalus", as typified in the form of a "black conical stone", which was believed to have "fell from heaven."This would be the same "Conical stone was the emblem of Bel". In "The Black God" chapter, I detail how this stone that "fell from heaven" is the black stone that the Muslims would kiss three times in Mecca. This "black stone" is mentioned in Acts 19:35 "And when the townclerk had appeased the people, he said, Ye men of Ephesus, what man is there that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the image which fell down from Jupiter?"

This is the same "black stone" that goes back to the worship of the Goddess "Aphrodite", with whom was called "foam of the sea". Now, why did Ignatius state "Conical?" That's because it's a "phallic" shaped stone. It's also called "Omphalos stone", thus connecting to the Hindu God Shiva and the Goddess Diana of Ephesus. I have stated many times in this website that this "Conical" black stone will be very important, as this will connect to the God called Dagon.

Now, this was the old information from the old chapter in the "The Emerald Tablets" on the fall of Atlantis: "In obedience to the law, the word of the Master grew into flower. Downward into the darkness turned the thoughts of the Atlanteans, Until at last in this wrath arose from his AGWANTI, the Dweller, (this word has no English equivalent; it means a state of detachment) speaking The Word, calling the power."

"'Deep in Earth's heart, the sons of Amenti heard, and hearing, directing the changing of the flower of fire that burns eternally, changing and shifting, using the LOGOS, until that great fire changed its direction. Over the world then broke the great waters, drowning and sinking, changing Earth's balance until only the Temple of Light was left standing on the great mountain on UNDAL still rising out of the water; some there were who were living, saved from the rush of the fountains."

"Called to me then the Master, saying: Gather ye together my people. Take them by the arts ye have learned of far across the waters, until ye reach the land of the hairy barbarians, dwelling in caves of the desert. Follow there the plan that ye know of. Gathered I then my people and entered the great ship of the Master."

"Upward we rose into the morning. Dark beneath us lay the Temple. Suddenly over it rose the waters. Vanished from Earth, until the time appointed, was the great Temple. Fast we fled toward the sun of the morning, until beneath us lay the land of the children of KHEM."

"Raging, they came with cudgels and spears, lifted in anger seeking to slay and utterly destroy the Sons of Atlantis. Then raised I my staff and directed a ray of vibration, striking them still in their tracks as fragments of stone of the mountain. Then spoke I to them in words calm and peaceful, telling them of the might of Atlantis, saying we were children of the Sun and its messengers. Cowed I them by my display of magic-science, until at my feet they groveled, when I released them."

This details the coming of the flood that destroyed Thoth's homeland, but this was caused by The Dweller's orders. Then states that Thoth and the Atlanteans going to Khem, and meeting the people that dwelt in caves. They came and attacked them, until Thoth used his mighty power to subdue them peacefully. Apparently, they would be called "The hairy Barbarians", which seems to be a Neanderthal-like people. 

Now, let's see the Sumerian account: "In the Sumerian version of the flood myth, the causes of the flood and the reasons for the hero's survival are unknown due to the fact that the beginning of the tablet describing the story has been destroyed. Nonetheless, Kramer has stated that it can probably be reasonably inferred that the hero Ziusudra survives due to Enki's aid because that is what happens in the later Akkadian and Babylonian versions of the story.  In the later Legend of Atrahasis, Enlil, the King of the Gods, sets out to eliminate humanity, whose noise is disturbing his rest."

"He successively sends drought, famine and plague to eliminate humanity, but Enki thwarts his half-brother's plans by teaching Atrahasis how to counter these threats. Each time, Atrahasis asks the population to abandon worship of all gods except the one responsible for the calamity, and this seems to shame them into relenting. Humans, however, proliferate a fourth time."

"Enraged, Enlil convenes a Council of Deities and gets them to promise not to tell humankind that he plans their total annihilation. Enki does not tell Atrahasis directly, but speaks to him in secret via a reed wall. He instructs Atrahasis to build a boat in order to rescue his family and other living creatures from the coming deluge. After the seven-day deluge, the flood hero frees a swallow, a raven and a dove in an effort to find if the flood waters have receded. Upon landing, a sacrifice is made to the gods."

"Enlil is angry his will has been thwarted yet again, and Enki is named as the culprit. Enki explains that Enlil is unfair to punish the guiltless, and the gods institute measures to ensure that humanity does not become too populous in the future. This is one of the oldest of the surviving Middle Eastern deluge myths."

Now, let's compare this to the great deluge in the Hindu story of Vishnu. Based from the Wiki states this:

"Matsya (Sanskrit: मत्स्य, lit. fish) is the fish avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu. Often described as the first of Vishnu's ten primary avatars, Matsya is described to have rescued the first man, Manu, from a great deluge. Matsya may be depicted as a giant fish, often golden in color, or anthropomorphically with the torso of Vishnu connected to the rear half of a fish. The earliest account of Matsya is found in the Shatapatha Brahmana, where Matsya is not associated with any particular deity. The fish-saviour later merges with the identity of Brahma in post-Vedic era, and still later, becomes regarded with Vishnu. The legends associated with Matsya expand, evolve, and vary in Hindu texts."

"These legends have embedded symbolism, where a small fish with Manu's protection grows to become a big fish, and the fish saves the man who would be the progenitor of the next race of mankind. In later versions, Matsya slays a demon named Hayagriva (son of sage Kashyapa and Diti) who steals the Vedas, and thus is lauded as the saviour of the scriptures.The tale is ascribed with the motif of flood myths, common across cultures."

"The section 1.8.1 of the Shatapatha Brahmana (Yajur veda) is the earliest extant text to mention Matsya and the flood myth in Hinduism. It does not associate the fish Matsya with any other deity in particular. The central characters of this legend are the fish (Matsya) and Manu. The character Manu is presented as the legislator and ancestor king. One day, water is brought to Manu for his ablutions. In the water is a tiny fish. The fish states that it fears being swallowed by a larger fish and appeals to Manu to protect it."

"In return, the fish promises to rescue Manu from an impending flood. Manu accepts the request. He puts the fish in a pot of water where it grows. Then he prepares a ditch filled with water, and transfers it there where it can grow freely. Once the fish grows further to be big enough to be free from danger, Manu transfers it into the ocean."

"The fish thanks him, tells him the timing of the great flood, and asks Manu to build a ship by that day, one he can attach to its horn. On the predicted day, Manu visits the fish with his boat. The devastating floods come. Manu ties the boat to the horn. The fish carries the boat with Manu to the high grounds of the northern mountains (interpreted as the Himalayas). The lone survivor Manu then re-establishes life by performing austerities and yajna (sacrifices). The goddess Ida appears from the sacrifice and both together initiate the race of Manu, the humans."

Now, I have stated before in "The Lord of Sirius series" that the story of Thoth meeting the "hairy barbarians" is basically Oannes or Dagon coming with knowledge of their culture to the people from the Oceans. Based from Godfrey Higgins' "The Anacalypsis" Vishnu is shown to be "Dagon", which is where the story of Quetzalcoatl, Oannes and other mythical figures coming forth from the sea is based on. Based from Robert Temple's "The Sirius Mystery" details the Gods being amphibian in appearance, which is why images and artifacts depict the Gods as looking like fish men. Then there is Jim Vieira's Amphibian Gods coming forth from the sea lectures, as he details this common story in all cultures of these beings coming and teaching mankind. Everything connects to the same beings as the Gods that brought this apparent "Civilization".

Now, based from Ignatius Donnelly's works, he states that these Gods were actually human Kings instead, however, I would have to disagree to this statement. Even after learning about the black stone myths throughout the different cultures, I now for a fact that it has nothing to do with mankind in this sense. Based from "Antarctica Mystery series", I have detailed the connections to the fall of Atlantis to the destruction on Mars, and how whatever came down from the skies has changed the evolution of mankind on Earth. This is where the intervention story takes place, as something had come from above and altered mankind's evolution through this Atlantean culture. 

Based from the story of Tohil the God of the Quiche', states in the Wiki that this God would be known for the "black flint stone". Though they state as to the name Tohil to mean either rain or obsidian, it's shown that this particular God is known for the black stone image. Then based from Harold Kautz' lectures based on the "Black goo" segment, he details some very interesting connections about the "black stone" that fell from heaven. He reveals that the black stone, amongst Islam and the Roman Catholic Church, would give a vibe of "dark energy", or a sense of a lack of empathy, as he states.

Although, I don't agree with this "spider like entities" being visualized as the state of the problem, he then mentions H.P. Lovecraft's story of people sacrificing children upon the black orifice-like stone. He then mentions from a (soft) source stating on the History of Lemuria, and how a certain "species" came to earth with the black stone meteorite. 

Now, the original thought would be that each race has an origin from Atlantis, but that isn't true, for certain races have a strange connection to the culture of Atlantis and their Gods, while others were the hominids on Earth before these entities arrived. The fall of the black stone that came from Heaven is where Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A space Odyssey" is based on, as the beginning reveals the monkeys starting to learn about warfare and culture etc. This is the start of the "Black monolith" that fell down from Heaven, which is what Ignatius Donnelly's "Black Conical stone" is based on....

Now, I will cut this short, but based on Thoth's "Emerald Tablets", I find there is truth based from the battle between the forces of light against the forces of darkness. This mirrors the battle between Michael and the Dragon God. There is the sense of how the "Dark Brothers" would have the ability to "walk in men's dreams", to which connects to the "dreamer of dreams", as they can communicate with you in your dreams.

So, based on Thoth mentioning Osiris, Isis and Horus, and the four sons of Horus and such became a dead giveaway that someone had wrote this segment in those passages. When learning about the being called "Thoth", it's shown that this story is based on Enoch, who is the "7th" son of Adam. This is where the esoteric interpretations come in place, as the Gods that cursed Adam and the serpent in Genesis 3:15, details this to be the battle between the angels Michael and the Dragon. This is one of the key factos that I find shows that these Atlantean races have nothing to do with mankind, but are talking about Extraterrestrial forces fighting for the dominion of the Universe. 

Now, when it came to Adam being red, as Ignatius and Edgar Cayce states, this could probably connect to the Red Horn story on the Red Honr being "Red complexioned" from head to toe, and how he would look like a bird. Interesting enough, the American Indians would have features like that of a bird, so like I stated on how there are certain races that have this strange connection to the Atlanteans, this is one of them.

Then based from Godfrey Higgins detailing the Goddess Cybele to being black, and how this connects to the black stone that fell from heaven, shows the strange connection to this type of Extraterrestrials to the black nations. The story of the dragon God that fell from the skies, is shown to have the symbol of the black conical stone, which is linked to Shiva who is Osiris and Anubis. The term "Thoth", "Enoch" and "Hermes" are based on two deities to which have an eternal war against one another, and both are deemed entities that are wiser beyond human comprehension.

Based from the chapter "The Key of Magic" details these forces of darkness battling the forces of light: "Hark ye, O man, to the wisdom of magic. Hark the knowledge of powers forgotten. Long ago in the days of the first man, warfare began between darkness and light. Men then as now, were filled with both darkness and light; and while in some darkness held sway, in other light filled the soul."

"Aye, age old in this warfare, the eternal struggle between darkness and light. Fiercely is it fought all through the ages, using strange powers hidden to man. Adepts has there been filled with the blackness, struggling always against the light; but others there are who, filled with brightness, have ever conquered the darkness of night. Where e'er ye may be in all ages and plane, surely, ye shall know of the battle with night."

"Long ages ago, The SUNS of the Morning descending, found the world filled with night, there in that past, began the struggle, the age old Battle Darkness & Light. Many in the time were so filled with darkness that only feebly flamed the light from the night. Some they were, masters of darkness, who sought to fill all with their darkness: Sought to draw others into their night."

"Fiercely withstood they, the masters of brightness: fiercely fought they from the darkness of night Sought ever to tighten the fetters, the chains that bind men to the darkness of night. Used they always the dark magic, brought into men by the power of darkness. magic that enshrouded man's soul with darkness."

"Banded together as in order, BROTHERS OF DARKNESS, they through the ages, antagonist they to the children of men. Walked they always secret and hidden, found, yet not found by the children of men. Forever, they walked and worked in darkness, hiding from the light in the darkness of night."

"Silently, secretly use they their power, enslaving and binding the soul of men. Unseen they come, and unseen they go. Man, in his ignorance calls THEM from below. Dark is the way of the DARK BROTHERS travel, dark of the darkness not of the night, traveling o'er Earth they walk through man's dreams. Power they have gained from the darkness around them to call other dwellers from out of their plane, in ways that are dark and unseen by man."

"Into man's mind-space reach the DARK BROTHERS. Around it, they close the veil of their night. There through it's lifetime that soul dwells in bondage, bound by the fetters of the VEIL of the night. Mighty are they in the forbidden knowledge forbidden because it is one with the night. Hark ye O old man and list to my warning: be ye free from the bondage of night."

"Surrender not your soul to the BROTHERS OF DARKNESS. Keep thy face ever turned towards the Light. Know ye not, O man, that your sorrow, only has come through the Veil of the night. Aye man, heed ye my warning: strive ever upward, turn your soul toward the LIGHT. The BROTHERS OF DARKNESS seek for their brothers those who traveled the pathway of LIGHT."

"For well know they that those who have traveled far towards the Sun in their pathway of LIGHT have great and yet greater power to bind with darkness the children of LIGHT. List ye, O man, to he who comes to you. But weigh in the balance if his words be of LIGHT. For many there are who walk in DARK BRIGHTNESS and yet are not the children of LIGHT."

"Even as exist among men the DARK BROTHERS, so there exists the BROTHERS OF LIGHT. Antagonists they of the BROTHERS OF DARKNESS, seeking to free men from the night. Powers have they, mighty and potent. Knowing the LAW, the planets obey. Work they ever in harmony and order, freeing the man-soul from its bondage of night. Secret and hidden, walk they also."

"Known not are they to the children of men. Ever have THEY fought the DARK BROTHERS, conquered and conquering time without end. Yet always LIGHT shall in the end be master, driving away the darkness of night. Aye, man, know ye this knowing: always beside thee walk the Children of Light. Masters they of the SUN power, ever unseen yet the guardians of men."

"Open to all is their pathway, open to he who will walk in the LIGHT. Free are THEY of DARK AMENTI, free of the HALLS, where LIFE reigns supreme. SUNS are they and LORDS of the morning, Children of Light to shine among men. Like man are they and yet are unlike, Never divided were they in the past. ONE have they been in ONENESS eternal, throughout all space since the beginning of time. Up did they come in Oneness with the ALL ONE, up from the first-space, formed and unformed."

"Given to man have they secrets that shall guard and protect him from all harm. He who would travel the path of the master, free must he be from the bondage of night. Conquer must he the formless and shapeless, conquer must he the phantom of fear. Knowing, must he gain of all of the secrets, travel the pathway that leads through the darkness, yet ever before him keep the light of his goal."

"Obstacles great shall he meet in the pathway, yet press on to the LIGHT of the SUN. Hear ye, O Man, the SUN is the symbol of the LIGHT that shines at the end of thy road. Now to thee give I the secrets: now to meet the dark power, meet and conquer the fear from the night. Only by knowing can ye conquer, Only be knowing can ye have LIGHT. Now I give unto thee the knowledge, known to the MASTERS, the knowing that conquers all the dark fears. Use this, the wisdom I give thee. MASTER thou shalt be of THE BROTHERS OF NIGHT."

This is based on Genesis 3:15 on the war between Michael and the Dragon God. In Hinduism, it's based on the emnity between two races, on being the Garuda bird and the other being the Naga.

Now, since the Black stone is based on the Atlantean religion, and Godfrey Higgins' book "The Anacalypsis" would detail how the Gods were depicted as having black skin with negroid features, then it should be noted that this is where Genesis 6 details the "Sons of God" as they connect to the story of the religion of Atlantis, as the origin of Christianity. It's noted that this is where the Chapter "The Black God" comes in as the term "Children of the Dragon" comes in parallel to the Sons of God, and how the whole world worships the Black God and Goddess and their symbols. Based from "The Sirius Mystery" Robert details this interesting segment on the "Omphalos stone" and how this pertains to the "Oracle of Delphi". Then states that Delphi is a "negro", meaning that this Atlantean religion is connected to the black nations and their Gods. This is where the dragon symbology connects to the ancient black God called Dagon, who is either called Siva, Vishnu, the Buddha, Osiris, all linking to the Lord of Sirius that is mentioned in the Quran. 

Now, since learning more about this Omphalos stone and the black stone of Diana of the Ephesus, then it should be noted that this is the stone pillar that Jacob had erected towards the God that he saw in his dreams. The Phallic pillar relates to Hermes, who is Thoth, but this is where we have to distinguish which Thoth this is, for this Thoth that is represented with the pillar is based on the Serpent or dragon god of the black nations. So, based from Thoth and the Atlanteans meeting with the "hairy barbarians", this is where the coming of Christianity is based on. As stated in the Chapter "Lord of the World", Rene Guenon states the exact same worship of the stone pillar, and how the Eucharist is based on Bacchus who is known as Osiris. This is why Dagon is shown having the Mitre to which the Pope is imitating towards to.

In "The Emerald Tablets" details the being called "The Dweller" based from "The Dweller of Unal". It seems that this description pertains to the "Lord of the World", and his messengers that he sends would be the "Men in Black", as John keel had stated in his research. They state that he lives below the Earth, but it should be noted that if this is the "King of the World", then this would be Bacchus or Osiris as the Lord of the Underworld. When the Atlanteans brought the cult of Dagon, it's shown that this is the Christian religions of today....

Based from the "Key of Mystery" in "The Emerald Tablets" details this segment:

"Speak I of Ancient Atlantis, speak of the days of the Kingdom of Shadows, speak of the coming of the children of shadows. Out of the great deep were they called by the wisdom of earth-men, called for the purpose of gaining great power. Far in the past before Atlantis existed, men there were who delved into darkness, using dark magic, calling up beings from the great deep below us. Forth came they into this cycle. Formless were they of another vibration, existing unseen by the children of earth-men. Only through blood could they have formed being. Only through man could they live in the world."

"In ages past were they conquered by Masters, driven below to the place whence they came. But some there were who remained, hidden in spaces and planes unknown to man. Lived they in Atlantis as shadows, but at times they appeared among men. Aye, when the blood was offered, for they came they to dwell among men. In the form of man they amongst us, but only to sight were they as are men."

"Serpent-headed when the glamour was lifted but appearing to man as men among men. Crept they into the Councils, taking forms that were like unto men. Slaying by their arts the chiefs of the kingdoms, taking their form and ruling o'er man. Only by magic could they be discovered. Only by sound could their faces be seen."

"Sought they from the Kingdom of shadows to destroy man and rule in his place. But, know ye, the Masters were mighty in magic, able to lift the Veil from the face of the serpent, able to send him back to his place. Came they to man and taught him the secret, the WORD that only a man can pronounce. Swift then they lifted the Veil from the serpent and cast him forth from the place among men."

"Yet, beware, the serpent still liveth in a place that is open at times to the world. Unseen they walk among thee in places where the rites have been said. Again as time passes onward shall they take the semblance of men. Called may they be by the master who knows the white or the black, but only the white master may control and bind them while in the flesh. Seek not the kingdom of shadows, for evil will surely appear. For only the master of brightness shall conquer the shadow of fear."

Then comes Carlos Castaneda's  encounter with the Shaman Don Juan On "The Predators":

"Don Juan, the Mexican Yaqui Indian shaman, tells Carlos Castaneda the following: "We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos and took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners. The Predator is our lord and master. It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to act independently, it demands that we don't do so... I have been beating around the bush all this time, insinuating to you that something is holding us prisoner. Indeed we are held prisoner! "This was an energetic fact for the sorcerers of ancient Mexico ..."

"They took us over because we are food for them, and they squeeze us mercilessly because we are their sustenance. just as we rear chickens in chicken coops, the predators rear us in human coops, humaneros. Therefore, their food is always available to them." "No, no, no, no," [Carlos replies] "This is absurd don Juan. What you're saying is something monstrous. It simply can't be true, for sorcerers or for average men, or for anyone." "Why not?" don Juan asked calmly. "Why not? Because it infuriates you? ... You haven't heard all the claims yet. I want to appeal to your analytical mind."

"Think for a moment, and tell me how you would explain the contradictions between the intelligence of man the engineer and the stupidity of his systems of beliefs, or the stupidity of his contradictory behaviour. Sorcerers believe that the predators have given us our systems of belief, our ideas of good and evil, our social mores. They are the ones who set up our hopes and expectations and dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed, and cowardice. It is the predators who make us complacent, routinary, and egomaniacal." "'But how can they do this, don Juan? [Carlos] asked, somehow angered further by what [don Juan] was saying. "'Do they whisper all that in our ears while we are asleep?"

"'No, they don't do it that way. That's idiotic!" don Juan said, smiling. "They are infinitely more efficient and organized than that. In order to keep us obedient and meek and weak, the predators engaged themselves in a stupendous manoeuvre stupendous, of course, from the point of view of a fighting strategist. A horrendous manoeuvre from the point of view of those who suffer it. They gave us their mind! Do you hear me? The predators give us their mind, which becomes our mind. The predators' mind is baroque, contradictory, morose, filled with the fear of being discovered any minute now."

"I know that even though you have never suffered hunger... you have food anxiety, which is none other than the anxiety of the predator who fears that any moment now its manoeuvre is going to be uncovered and food is going to be denied. Through the mind, which, after all, is their mind, the predators inject into the lives of human beings whatever is convenient for them. And they ensure, in this manner, a degree of security to act as a buffer against their fear."

"The sorcerers of ancient Mexico were quite ill at ease with the idea of when [the predator] made its appearance on Earth. They reasoned that man must have been a complete being at one point, with stupendous insights, feats of awareness that are mythological legends nowadays. And then, everything seems to disappear, and we have now a sedated man. What I'm saying is that what we have against us is not a simple predator."

"It is very smart, and organized. It follows a methodical system to render us useless. Man, the magical being that he is destined to be, is no longer magical. He's an average piece of meat." "There are no more dreams for man but the dreams of an animal who is being raised to become a piece of meat: trite, conventional, imbecilic." Carlos Castaneda, 1998

Now, based from further researching this, even though Godfrey Higgins states the Gods to being black, but based on the Dragon symbolism states this strange connection that they might be a representation and not their true image. Based from other sources would detail these entities to being Amphibian or somewhat reptilian in appearance. The term "negroid" features is where the Chinese Emperors would call "dragon faced", because they would resemble the Chinese dragon faces. Of course, it's shown that the black nations were in the land of Asia before the Aryans had came into the land with their own God, so those dragon gods that is shown has nothing to do with the East modern Asians of today.

So, when Don Yuan was talking about this apparent "predator" that came from the "Cosmos", this is linked to "The Emerald Tablets" chapter "Halls of Amenti": "Deep in Earth's heart lie the Halls of Amenti, far 'neath the islands of sunken Atlantis, Halls of the Dead and halls of the living, bathed in the fire of the infinite ALL. Far in a past time, lost in the space time, the Children of Light looked down on the world. Seeing the children of men in their bondage, bound by the force that came from beyond. Knew they that only by freedom from bondage could man ever rise from the Earth to the Sun."

Here states that the children of men were bound by a force that came from beyond. Based from Don Yuan's description on how these entitie came from the Cosmos speaks all too familiar. Even Credo Mutwa had detailed the Chitauri coming from the skies and ruling over mankind. He also states that these entities have other names as well, as they are also called "Nommo" to which is shown to be ones who brought the cult of Dagon to mankind.

So, what's the truth here? Based from Dr. Brandenberg's book on "Death on Mars", would detail evidence on some kind of cataclysm taking place on the planet. Many had theorized that Mars used to be an earth like planet prior to it's destruction. However, when learning about this apparent destruction, it seems that the term "flood" has nothing on the means of water, but taking a refuge from a nuclear weapon that was sought to destroy another race. 

Based from the city in Egypt called "Cairo" states this in the Wiki: " Egyptians often refer to Cairo as Maṣr, the Egyptian Arabic name for Egypt itself, emphasizing the city's importance for the country. Its official name al-Qāhirah  means 'the Vanquisher' or 'the Conqueror, supposedly due to the fact that the planet Mars, an-Najm al-Qāhir (the Conquering Star'), was rising at the time when the city was founded, possibly also in reference to the much awaited arrival of the Fatimid Caliph Al-Mu'izz who reached Cairo in 973 from Mahdia, the old Fatimid capital. The location of the ancient city of Heliopolis is the suburb of Ain Shams ('Eye of the Sun')."

There something mysterious about Egypt's Cairo and the Pyramids, and based on Mars' connection to this apparent "flood", has something to do with Revelations 12: 7-12:

"7And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night."

"11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time."

Just stated in the "Galactic Warfare" series, when Michael is shown battling the Dragon God and his angels, it's based on the war in the heavens. It states that Michael "warns" the inhabitants of the earth on the coming of the dragon God, thus revealing the intervention of these entities to the earth. This is where the story fo the Nommo takes place, Don Yuan's depiction of the "predator", to Credo mutwa's Chitauri reptilian story. They are then called "Oannes" or "Dagon", to which the cult of Dagon is turned into the Christian religions of today. 

It seems that even though I can tell on the corruption of "The Emerald Tablets", but based on the description of "serpent headed" entities coming from the deep shows to connect to H.P. Lovecraft's "Dagon" and "Shadow over Innsmouth". It's strange that when reading "The Sirius Mystery" and Jim Vieira's lectures on the Amphibian Gods coming from the sea, that it's all intertwined as the same entities as Oannes or Dagon.

So, with all this said, it's shown that the Atlantean culture is based on Dagon worship, and Thoth and the Atlanteans meeting the "hairy barbarians" is merely the Dragon Gods meeting the people of earth as Oannes or Dagon. It's stated in "The Emerald Tablets" that Thoth came on a "ship" and flew over Atlantis as it was being engulfed in water. This would have to be some kind of spacecraft that was used by the Atlanteans. This is most likely where these Gods like the "Nommo" or Chitauri came to Earth and then started to teach mankind their religion and ways. Based from Credo's story details the Chitauri teaching men to become Gods, when they actually took away mankind's true Psychic power. This is where Don Yuan's statement on how they took man's power away is based on.

Based on the destruction of Mars, to which has to be where they came from, comes another power that they were struggling against. This is where the battle between these two groups is based on and how they are shown throughout the Mythos as the Gods vs Titans, the Suras against the Asuras, to Annunaki and Igigi to Michael battling the Dragon God, and how the Dragon worship or "Dagon" worship becomes the religion of Christianity...
