Chan Thomas’ book, first published in 1963, is one of possibly hundreds which reference the topic of cataclysm theory. What sets it apart from most, if not all of its peers, is that the CIA at some point classified a work which was already in the public domain, and then released a sanitized version of it in 2013. The original text has been available since publication.
Thomas seems to have sourced much of his information from having knowledge of Project Nanook (1947), which remained classified from 1947 until 1988, as described in World in Peril (1994). Many of the details in Adam and Eve are almost identical to what is to be found in Ken White’s book. This explains why Thomas seldom provides citations for much of his information – Project Nanook remained classified when Adam and Eve Story was published in 1963 – he would have been prosecuted under the Official Secrets Act had he revealed his source. This is probably the reason why the CIA classified The Adam and Eve Story in the first place.
It’s funny how some things can plague you from childhood through your adult years. Not big things, but little things, which don’t exactly persist, but annoyingly stick their head through your life’s door and say “Boo!” just to let you know they’re still there. If I made a list of all these things in my life it might take up a whole book. I’d like to talk about just one of these bugaboos.
From the first time I heard the story of the creation and Adam and Eve, it “buzzed” me, as my young son would say. Now, to me the answer was not simply one of two usual alternatives: either unquestioning faith in the story as it stands, or complete repudiation as utter nonsense.
No, the answer seemed to lie elsewhere. If the story were taught as the truth so uniformly, in spite of its apparent divergence from scientific truths, then to me the true course would seem to be a search for the foundation of the story, which would then lead to a true reading of it.
The pursuit happened almost by accident. Years of data correlation in studying the earth tumbling concept has shown the last tumble to have occurred about 6500 years ago; that Noah, or Utnapishtim, or whatever his name was, did exist and did survive that particular cataclysm.
A friend of mine suggested that Genesis I is almost a perfect description of conditions on our planet immediately following a tumble. On rereading it, I had to agree; Genesis II even mentions that a mist, or flood, went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.
Well, now! This was worth thinking about. If it were so, then it would be the tumble preceding Noah’s (another fascinating story!), about 11,500 years ago. This, then could be approximately the time of the Adam and Eve story.
The pursuit started. If the story did originate with that tumble, in what language was it first written? Certainly not Hebrew or Greek, for as far as we know, they didn’t exist at that time.
If we look to men such as Don Antonio Batres Juarequi and James Churchward, we may have our answer. Certainly their knowledge of prehistoric languages could be a key, and later We’ll discuss the role of Naga and Ancient Mayan in the story of Adam and Eve; first, however, let’s examine the history of Genesis I, II, and III.
There are many schools of thought on this subject, but the most predominant one is that Moses was the originator. This seems not too far-fetched, since Moses was reared in the Egyptian tradition, in a royal household, and probably had access to many religious writings and teachings now lost with the passing of the archives of Egypt, in Alexandria, Heliopolis, and Sais. Certainly the Ten Commandments were a condensation of the forty-two questions of Osiris for entering heaven. If Moses did write part of the Old Testament, he then must have had Naga tablet writings, or Egyptian interpretations of them, handed down to the Egyptians for thousands of years; and the Egyptian priesthood had knowledge of a cataclysm 11,500 years ago. Priests of Egypt are supposed to have told Solon during his ten years in Egypt (about 600 B.C.) that 9,000 years before that time there was a cataclysm which buried Atlantis beneath the ocean. Note that 9,000 + 600 B.C. + 1950 A.D. equals 11,550 years ago.
Moses’ brother, Aaron, became the first chief priest of the Hebrews about 1300 B.C. Somewhere between 15 and 18 generations later, the chief priesthood having been handed down father-son through the generations, Seraiah (or Seraias) was the chief priest (See Ezra, and 1 and 2 Ezdras). In 586 B.C., in the 19th year of Nebuchadnezzar’s reign, Seraiah was taken and executed, and his son Ezra made a captive in Persia (see 2 Kings). At that time, Jerusalem was sacked, and all Hebrew records including their laws and records of the Old Testament were burned with the temple at Jerusalem, by Nebuza-adan, Nebuchadnezzar’s captain of the guard.
In 458 B.C., during the seventh year of Artaxerxes I’s reign in Persia, Ezra was commissioned to reestablish the Hebrew religion and law. According to 2 Ezdras, Ezra rewrote the history of the Hebrews from the beginning, and reestablished their laws.
Now, from 586 to 458 B.C. is 128 years. The latest that Ezra could have been born was after his father Seraiah’s murder, as well could be (see Onan’s story, Genesis 38:8-10); therefore, the youngest he could have been in 458 B.C. was 127. He was working on a long memory.
Let’s examine this anomaly. As mentioned before, the lineage from Aaron to Ezra contains from 17 to 20 generations, including Aaron and Ezra. Assuming (1) 1300 B.C. for the start of Aaron’s priesthood (1290 B.C. is adjudged the time of the Exodus) ; (2) 458 B.C. to be near the end of Ezra’s priesthood; then we find theaverage priesthood term per generation to be between 42.1 and 49.5 years. In view of this, can we believe that Ezra served his priesthood for approximately 130 years?
It would appear much more plausible to assume that it was Ezra’s grandfather, Azariah rather than his father Seraiah, who was the one taken and executed by Nebuchadnezzar’s men in 586 B.C. . Then Seraiah and Ezra would have served as chief priests during the 128 years from 586 to 458 B.C., for an average of 64 years apiece. It is even plausible that Ezra’s great-grandfather Helchiah could have been the victim in 586 B.C., leaving Azariah, Seraiah, and Ezra to serve the 128 years for an average of 42 years each, which is even closer to the overall average from Aaron to Ezra, over a period of about 845 years.
This means that the Adam and Eve story was last seen in writing by Helchiah or Azariah, therefore handed down verbally possibly by Azariah, and certainly by Seraiah and Ezra, and finally dictated by Ezra to five scribes. It is the five scribes’ writings that we have today as Ezra’s work. And the English is not even a literal translation . . . for instance, “without form and void” more literally would read “raging inundations and horrendous winds”. . .
Now, through Ezra’s reconstruction of Genesis, we are told many things:
- Because of the usage of “tree”, “fruit”, “serpent”, “cherubim”, and other words which were glyphs in the picture language of prehistory, it is evident that the Creation and Adam and Eve stories were probably originally written in the glyphs of Naga, the predominant Eastern Hemisphere language of 11,500 years ago. This language is nearly identical to ancient Mayan, and the progenitor of many languages, including Oriental and Polynesian tongues, Egyptian, Greek, and Yakut.
- Moses (and possibly Aaron) may have had access to these tablets, or Egyptian versions of them.
- Neither Moses nor Aaron knew how to read the ancient language, therefore read the glyphs quite literally.
- Not being able to read the symbolism of Naga glyphs, in addition to reading them literally, Moses and Aaron (and possibly Ezra) read into the Adam and Eve story the social and religious attitudes of their day. In that time woman was regarded as the root of all sin, a lowly creature, her birth recorded only as an exception, and basically being the cause of man’s every downfall — a daily potential. This attitude persists in some religions even to our time. Is it any wonder that Eve was shouldered with the responsibility for the downfall of all mankind, as a result of interpretations read into the Naga by Moses? And into Moses’ reading by Ezra? Perhaps also it was read into the story by Egyptian priests long before Moses’ time, and passed on to him as history.
- The fusing of two stories (P and J versions) into one to make the story of Genesis I, II, and III may confuse “the man” with Adam. It is possible that Adam, being only nine generations ahead of Noah, with the time span of the Sudan Basin Polar Era covering 5,000 years, was not “the man” referred to in the creation, but his name and later experiences were merged with “the man’s” story. Remember, however, we are informed that Ezra dictated the entire history to five scribes from memory, and this work contains Genesis as we know it today.
For him to recall from the archives of his mind what he did—as well as he did—certainly bespeaks of inspiration of a high order; but it also appears evident that he had no knowledge of the fact that 5,000 years transpired between Genesis I and Noah’s flood. It is clear from 2 Ezdras 3:9 that Genesis I and Noah’s flood represented two inundations, however, for while speaking of the two occasions, he says of Noah’s flood: “And again in process of time thou broughtest the flood upon those that dwelt in the world, and destroyedst them.”
Now, we mentioned before that the lineage of the high priests from Aaron to Ezra differs in number of generations (17 or 20) and names as presented in 1 and 2 Ezdras; and both differ in names from the book of Ezra. We also find differences in the lineages from Noah to Jesus (approximately 51 generations) in the Bible. Is it any wonder, therefore, that some generations could have been omitted in the Adam to Noah line? And the Aaron to Ezra line? And in the light of the fact that, in addition to overwhelming scientific evidence, there are countless legends in the Asia-Pacific area, handed down from the inundation of 11,500 years ago, of a creation much like that of Genesis I and II, is it not possible that “the man” of the Genesis story became confused with Adam throughout the thousands of years, and through a succeeding tumble and inundation in Noah’s time 6500 years ago? The miracle actually is that the whole story of “creation”, and of Adam and Eve, is as undistorted as it is; being 11,500 years old, it has suffered through many debacles visited upon its guardians in the intervening years. Because of the lack of resolving information, “the man” and Adam are kept as one in this translation- interpretation.
- The significant Naga glyphs given to us by Ezra through Moses’ direct reading are: Cherubims, Man, Fruit, Rib, Woman, Serpent, Adam’s sleep, Tree, Flaming and Sword.
- Our knowledge of Naga glyphs tells us that the tree (of life) symbolized a mother continent, a parent civilization lasting thousands of years longer than ours of today.
- An unadorned serpent represented water, or the ocean; a serpent entwined about the tree signified that the mother continent was surrounded by water. Genesis III, 15 actually describes Eve’s heel on the serpent’s head, showing her victory over the oceans.
- Cherubims – which were not pretty, plump babies, but hybrid man and beast – were the glyphs for legs, or foundations, or underpinnings. Instead of being placed in the garden of Eden, one was taken away; and a Naga or Maya reading of the Egyptian Book of the Dead shows that cherubims of the North, East, South, and West were taken away – meaning that the foundations of the mother continent, in all directions, were removed or destroyed.
- The flaming sword was the symbol of fire and earthquake. The fire signified what all legends of these cataclysms call earth-fire, which is the molten layer below the earth’s 60-mile thick shell breaking through to the surface during a tumble, a literal hell. It is most probably the origin of man’s concept of hell, as a matter of fact.
- Now back to the tree: Fruit growing on that tree symbolized the original mankind which settled the mother continent ages before Adam and Eve. Their eating of the fruit tells us that they were descended from this original mankind of the continent. Eve eating first signifies that she was the generation after Adam, making her his daughter. His daughter!?
- The glyph of the creation is even more revealing. There are three figures represented in this picture; the top figure is the face of a sleeping or dead person (there were no separate symbols for death and sleep in Naga— both were represented as the same). The middle figure is shown as a male, and the bottom figure a female who is represented as the mother of all mankind. In addition, there are curved lines from the sleeping or dead person and the male middle figure to the bottom female figure. This glyph has been interpreted to mean that the middle figure, a male, was put to sleep, shown by the top figure, and a rib (or ribs) removed from him (the ribs being the curved lines) and fashioned into the bottom figure, the female mother of all mankind. This fits beautifully with the story of Eve’s creation, Adam therefore being both the male middle figure and the top figure, a sleeping (or dead) person. There is a slight hitch to this story, however: the top figure, whether sleeping or dead, is depicted as a female! How could it be Adam, asleep, awake, dead, or alive? Moreover, in Naga the curved lines denote parentage rather than ribs; so, more reasonably, it appears that the top figure is a dead female, whose offspring by the male middle figure (Adam) was the bottom female figure (Eve), the mother of the Hebrews.
So, in essence, the story as read from the glyphs would be that Adam and Eve, who lived in the Garden of Eden in the mother continent (tree), were descended from the original mankind (fruit) of that land, which incidentally was surrounded entirely by water (serpent around the tree). Eve was Adam’s daughter, and he was a widower. They realized that, in order to survive, they had to leave and never try to return, for the motherland was to be destroyed by a cataclysmic inundation. They left; and afterward, the continent (tree) was subjected to a fiery earthquake (flaming sword), during which it lost its foundations (cherubims), and sank beneath the ocean (serpent) which forever afterward walked over the sunken continent (on its belly).
So let’s review the event – two cataclysms ago – and then apply our knowledge toward a representative translation-interpretation of Genesis I, II, and III. It may be the most accurate reading of a story written 11,500 years ago.
11,500 years ago…
Did you ever sit down for an evening at a card table with a 1000-piece puzzle? By yourself? It takes hours and hours to put it together, doesn’t it, with trial, and error, and patience all playing their parts.
We’re still trying out some of the as yet unfitted pieces in our world-wide puzzle, and we’ve been “at the table” since 1949. However, even though incomplete, it shows us a graphic representation of the earth’s picture 11,500 years ago.
Look at a globe of the World. Pick out Longitude 90°W – Latitude 60 °N. This point is in the western part of the Hudson Bay.
Now hold the globe so that 90°W – 60°N is at the North Pole, on the axis of rotation. This was the configuration of the world between 18,500 years ago and 11,500 years ago. The North Polar ice cap formed the Laurentian Basin in Canada.
The continents, however, were not quite the same.
- There was a huge continent in the Atlantic Ocean area, which stretched from Iceland and England across the Atlantic to the Bahamas. The Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea did not exist – they were land at that time.
- There was another continent in the Pacific – covering an area now ringed by the Hawaiian Islands, the Galapagos, Easter Island, Tahiti, the Solomons, and the Caroline Islands.
- The Province of Ceylon held the major civilization of India. Egypt and the Holy Land were thriving mixtures of vegetation and civilization.
- Greece – land of the Hellenes – was the home of a tall, blue-eyed, blonde race with standards of science and law unmatched to this day.
- The Amazon Basin was an inland sea – legends call it the Sea of Xarayes – and the mouth of the Amazon River was then a wide, seagoing connection between the Atlantic and Xarayes. The western coast of South America was not mountainous – the prehistoric city of Tiahuanaco, Peru, now at 12,500 feet above the Pacific, was then at sea level. It was a metropolis seaport, with a canal system for seagoing ships – as large as any we have today – traversing from the Pacific to the inland sea.
Astronomers of Tiahuanaco used telescopes like ours of today; and they had a huge satellite orbiting the earth – West to East, 449 times per year – which they used as a time standard, its orbit was so accurate. Ahoydia, now a suburb of Lucknow, was the capital of India. And the great navigators, the great scientists, the great explorers of the eastern hemisphere were the dark-eyed, dark-haired Mayans.
About 11,500 years ago – in 9,550 B.C., as dated by astronomers from Potsdam Observatory from writings in the ruins of Tiahuanaco – the 60-mile thick shell of the earth shifted its position once more in ¼ to ½ a day, 7,000 years after the previous shift. The North Pole moved southward, and the Sudan Basin in Africa shifted to the North Pole. This was the time which the Talmud states was the setting of the Pleiades below the horizon, when the Holy Land was moved into a “region of terrible cold” for many generations – actually for 5,000 years until Noah’s flood, 6,500 years ago. The equatorial pivot points were off the coast of mid-Chile and in mid-China, near the Yangtze, North of Viet Nam.
The great continent in the Pacific disappeared almost completely – what is now Easter Island, then on the edge of the continent, dropped to remain on the Pacific Ocean floor for 5,000 years – to be heaved up again in the cataclysm causing Noah’s flood. What remained of the vast Pacific continent rolled to the South Pole, to be discovered by Mayan explorers as the last remains of their motherland – a “frozen reservoir of mud at the bottom of the earth,” millions of square miles in area.
Of the great continent in the Atlantic, only a large island was left in the West, while the ocean between there and Gibraltar to the East was left shallow, muddy, and impassable to ships.
A thread of a clue concerning the great knowledge of that time came out when Captain Cook discovered the Polynesian Maori tribe in New Zealand in the 1700’s. They told him of ancient legends of Saturn’s rings – and they hadn’t even heard of telescopes. Now you try to see those rings with your naked eyes – and you’ll find out that it’s impossible.
The evidence in Tiahuanaco shows that their great civilization was wiped out so suddenly that people were caught in the middle of their normal daytime activities by catastrophic inundation. Further, evidence shows that this fabulous city suffered the same fate as Easter Island: although the Rockies and Andes were started in this cataclysm, Tiahuanaco was buried under the Pacific, to remain there for 5,000 years, then to be heaved up to its present altitude of 12,500 feet in the last cataclysm 6,500 years ago.So the cataclysm of 11,500 years ago saw the Hudson Bay and the opposite polar area just southwest of Australia both roll to the equator on opposite sides of the Earth, and the Sudan Basin region roll to the North Pole, to remain there for the next 5000 years. While this shift was occurring, taking only ¼ to ½ a day to complete itself, the earth’s oceans and atmosphere, through angular momentum, kept rotating in their normal direction during most of the shift, with the oceans violently inundating most of the lands of the Earth, and the atmosphere bringing unimaginable hurricanes of up to supersonic wind velocities. Whole continents were subjected to tremendous upheavals and earthquakes. The molten layer below the earth’s 6o-mile thick shell broke through the shell in places all over the world, and was thereafter called “earth-fire” by the pitiful few who survived…
The oceans and winds took six days after the start of the cataclysm to resolve their holocaustic wars on the surface of the earth, and on the seventh day began to settle down to 5,000 years of normal complacency. The two-mile thick ice caps of the Laurentian Basin and the Indian Ocean, having shifted from their polar homes and started a new course of revolving equatorially, proceeded to melt at tremendous speeds in the torrid heat, carving great grooves in the mountains as the rushing, gushing, swirling water and ice overwhelmed everything in their paths. The great amounts of moisture being poured into the atmosphere were to shroud the Torrid Zone in a dark fog for many years during several generations. The oceans rose some 200 feet all over the world with the sudden melting of the ice caps, as they do after each cataclysm.
The end of the Laurentian Ice Age, and the start of the “Old Stone Age” was complete.
The Mayan tongue lived on in scattered remnants: Polynesian tongues, Greek, Yakut, Egyptian, Eskimo tongues, Nomadic, Oriental, German, American Indian – just about all languages. The resurrection from the waters – Tau – lived on in many stories of a man who survived, later to become Ta’aroa, Tongaroa, Taroa’a, depending on which tribe’s legend you find.
Adam and Eve could have sprung from the same story. Who knows?
The Book of Genesis
A translation-interpretation of Genesis I, II, and III, from a reconstruction of what the Naga must have been to give us the chapters as we have had them in English; then re-translating directly from Naga to English, bypassing Greek and Hebrew.
- In the beginning (4.5 billion years ago) the universe was created in God’s great design. Included was our Sun, and our planet Earth.
- And during one of the many cataclysms that occurred during the earth’s history (this one being 11,500 years ago), the earth’s lands were all inundated with raging waters, and ravaged by horrendous winds; and the oceans were all dark with muddiness. And the ill wind thundered over the troubled waters also.
- And as the storms abated, sunlight came back to the face of the earth, as God intended.
- And, while the holocaust was abating, once more darkness and sunlight were reestablished and distinguishable, and it was good.
- And sunlight was again daytime, and darkness again nighttime, in accordance with God’s design; and evening and morning made one day.
- Again, God’s original design was that there be a sky between the clouds and oceans;
- And in accordance with God’s design, the heavens were reestablished, in that the sky again stood between the clouds and the oceans, as the onslaught of the great storms abated.
- And God’s heavens were indeed reestablished; and that evening and morning were the beginning of the second day.
- And God’s design was that the lands would not be entirely covered by the oceans as they were immediately following a cataclysm, so the disrupted oceans, now settling, drained off the higher lands.
- And, in accordance with God’s design, the dry land was earth, and the waters oceans, and once again it was reestablished and good, as God intended.
- And since God’s design was that the earth should bring forth grass and herbs, yielding their seed, and the fruit yielding fruit containing its seed; and the earth was again reestablished.
- Therefore the earth, being reestablished, brought forth grass and herbs, yielding their seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit containing its seed; and it was good, as God intended.
- And the evening and the morning were the start of the third day.
- In accordance with God’s design, there were normally lights in the heavens, which served to indicate months, and seasons, and days, and years;
- Also they served to furnish light on the earth, as God intended.
- And as the great fog lifted, and the clouds broke, the Sun and Moon reappeared, and also the stars;
- And once again, as God intended, they shone from the heavens;
- And the Sun and Moon again were able to divide light and darkness, which was good.
- And the evening and the morning were the start of the fourth day.
- And it was God’s will that some of every creature living, and bird flying, should survive the cataclysmic inundation.
- Surviving then were great whales, and every living creature of the sea, and every kind of winged fowl; and it was as God intended, and good.
- And they were blessed with God’s original design to be fruitful, and reproduce, and replenish the oceans with sea life and the air with fowl.
- And the evening and the morning were the start of the fifth day.
- And it was God’s will that some of every creature, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth, should survive the cataclysmic inundation;
- Surviving then were the beasts, the cattle, and every thing that creeps on the earth; and it was as God intended, and good.
- And in accordance with God’s design, man, who was created in the image God intended, also was to survive, and have dominion over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.
- So it was God’s design that man, who was created in the image God intended, both male and female, would survive the cataclysmic inundation.
- And they were blessed with God’s original design to be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and control it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.29. And God’s design was that man, being given every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to man it should be for food.
- And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creeps on the earth, wherein there is life, God’s design was that green herbs shall serve for food; and it was as God intended.
- And every thing which survived, was as God had originally created, and still was in God’s design, and was good. And the evening and the morning were the beginning of the sixth day.
- Thus the heavens and the earth were reestablished, all the host of them.
- And on the seventh day the recovery from the holocaust and flood were complete; and the seventh day brought rest from the fight for survival against the holocaust and its aftereffects.
- And the seventh day brought God’s blessed peace, as the holocaust had abated, leaving those of his creation who survived.
- These are the same regenerations of the heavens and of the earth as they were reestablished after the tumble previous to the one of this story, when the Lord God reestablished the earth and the heavens.
- And every plant of the field before that cataclysm was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew. For the Lord God had not brought rain upon the earth in this region, and there was not a man to till the ground.
- But there was this cataclysm, and great inundations arose over the earth.
- And it was God’s will that man should rise up from the earth, and keep the breath of life, and remain a living soul. This is his story.
- And it was God’s will, after a cataclysm, that a continent eastward be established, and there in Eden lived the man of this story.
- And from this land grew other civilizations, on other lands, with the motherland in the midst of all being the seat of wisdom, of all knowledge, both good and evil.
- And the inundation destroyed Eden, and left only its four offspring lands. (Note: The next four verses are probably incorrect, with the true description locked in correct translationsof Egypt’s “Book of the Dead”, and the missing portion of the Piri Reis map.)
- The first land is near the river Pison, which includes the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
- And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
- And the second land is near the river Gihon: the same land which includes the whole land of Ethiopia.
- And the third land is near the river Hiddekel: that is the land toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth land is near the river Euphrates.
- And it was in God’s province that the man was of Eden, where he lived and toiled.
- And he was descended from the original mankind which settled that motherland.
- And God’s design was that the man was warned: although the motherland was the source of all knowledge, both good and evil, if he stay therein, surely he would die.
- And it was God’s design that the man should not be alone, therefore a mate should be his;
- And since God had originally created every beast of the field, and fowl of the air, and in his time Adam had named each one;
- And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was no mate.
- For Adam’s mate had died, after giving birth to a child of Adam;
- And the child of the man was a female, made in the image God intended;
- And Adam said, this child is bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh; and she grew into womanhood.
- Therefore, the man was both father and mother to her, and she abode with him, as they were one flesh.
- And the climate there was warm, requiring little or no clothing.
- Now at the time of the beginning of this story, the oceans were in their normal state of quietness; and it was known to the woman of this story that she was not descended from any of the peoples of the lands which sprang from the mother continent;
- And God’s design was that the woman would learn that the people of the offspring lands would live on,3. But the people of the motherland, from whom she had descended, would surely all die.
- And she knew that in spite of the impending inundation, she would not surely die;
- For God’s design was that from the day she was born, she was descended from the original mankind of the motherland, and was destined to know all, to discern both good and evil.
- And the woman, being of the motherland, and being wise and good, knew that both she and her father were descended from the original mankind of the motherland.
- And they both were wise, and had lived the good life; and it was that time of the year when some clothing was needed for warmth.
- And in the cool of those days, when they were wondering to which of the offspring lands they should go, and God’s presence was felt strongly by them,
- Adam felt God’s call,
- And said, I have heard God’s warning since the summer, and have feared, for I knew not where to find refuge;
- And God’s warning had come to him in the summer, as a warning to leave the land of his ancestors.
- And the man said, the woman who is my daughter, and descended of my ancestors, gave me this knowledge;
- And asked her, What gift of knowledge has God given you? And the woman said, I am of your ancestors and inherit their wisdom; and the coming inundations of the oceans has been made known to me;
- And God’s design was that the oceans would so inundate the lands, and drown all cattle, and all beasts of the field, and bury all dust,
- And God has thus given me victory over the oceans, such that the seed of future generations is in you and me, for the oceans will drown all others.
- And God’s design was that although the inundation would greatly multiply her sorrows, she would even so bring forth children, as her love would be for her husband, and his for her.
- And unto Adam it was God’s will that he heed the words of his daughter, and God’s warning that though they be descendants of original mankind of the motherland, they should leave it, as it was destined for destruction, and were they to stay, surely they would regret it;18. And where Adam was to go, the land would be difficult to farm, with thorns and thistles abounding;
and even so the herb of the field was to be their food.
- By his own toil and sweat he was destined to fight the fight for survival after the inundation, even to the end of his days, when he would return to mother Earth, as it was Earth man came from, and unto Earth he shall return.
- And after the inundation, Adam therefore made the woman his wife, and called her Eve, as she was to be the mother of all living from the motherland.
- And, again after the inundation, as they were in a colder climate, it was God’s design as part of their survival that they make coats of skins, and be clothed.
- And it was God’s design that Adam should take with him the knowledge of good and evil from the motherland as he put forth and left in order to live;
- Therefore, in accordance with God’s will, he left the garden of Eden, to survive and live from the soil where he was to go.
- So the man left; and the garden of Eden was subjected to a cataclysm of earthquake and fire, and the motherland lost its foundations, and sank beneath the oceans.
