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.
