Considering that Adam was carried in Ninmah’s womb, it followed that his female counterpart had to be carried in the womb of a royal too, not an ordinary Anunnaki like any of the Birth Mothers. Who would it be this time around? Enki this time excused his sister; instead, he tipped his wife Ninki (maiden name Damkina) to bear the burden, of course subject to her consent.
Ninki did not need overmuch persuasion as her sister-in-law had been through the process without any detriment to her health. It was not Ningishzidda, though, who transplanted the tiny foetus into Ninki’s womb; that was taboo given that she was his step-mother. It had to be Enki himself.
Ninki was delivered in the tenth month, by Caesarian section. As per plan, the offspring was a girl. She was as healthy and adorable as Adam. However, there was a marked difference in their skin tones: the girl was nearly as light-skinned as the Anunnaki (what we would call a “coloured” today), whereas Adam was of a comparatively darker hue.
Clearly, in the gene tinkering process, Enki had Ningishzidda substantially tone down on the dark pigment melanin as he intended the female Earthling to be even more visually attractive. Enki’s gesture was also motivated, apparently, by some future scheme of his that he kept close to his chest.
As with Ninmah in the case of Adam, Ninti had discretion to confer a name on the newly born girl. She suggested the name Tiamat. “Tiamat let her name be,” Ninti said. “Like the planet of old of which the Earth and the Moon were fashioned, let her be called.”
The creation of Tiamat, the biblical Eve, thus, was a symbolic commemoration of the Celestial Battle that took place 4 billion years ago, when a primeval Nibiru smashed into a watery planet called Tiamat – which was located between Mars and Jupiter – to split it into Earth and the Asteroid Belt. One of Tiamat’s eleven satellites, Kingu, was dragged along to become our Moon. We dwelt on this subject earlier in the Earth Chronicles.
Initially, female Earthlings were to be mass-produced from Eve’s DNA template, just as male Earthlings were mass-produced from Adam’s DNA template, that is, using seven new Birth Mothers. Indeed, a year later, the Birth Mothers were clutching seven healthy baby girls.
Let us at this juncture turn to the Bible to cross-check these happenings. We will begin with GENESIS 5:1-2. Summarising the creation of man by God, the two scriptures read as follows: Verse 1 – When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. Verse 2 – He (God) created them male and female and blessed them.
And when they were created he called them ‘man’. Do you see some seeming contradiction? Verse 1 talks about “man”, but in Verse 2, man has become “male and female”. The contradiction arises only in the distorted English translation. In the Hebrew original, there is no contradiction at all.
A much more direct and minimally paraphrased translation from Hebrew should read something like this: Verse 1 – When the Elohim (the royal Anunnaki) created the first Earthling, they made him in their own image and likeness and blessed him.Verse 2 – Then the Elohim created more male Earthlings and in due course female Earthlings.
The Earthlings were called Adamites. The Elohim are the Anunnaki leadership. But this also is too much of a generalisation: as we saw in earlier pieces, it was Enki who said “Let us make man in our own image and likeness” (GENESIS 1:26), and as we have already demonstrated, it was Enki, assisted by his step-sister Ninmah and his genius son Ningishzidda, who created both Adam and Eve.
Inevitably, it is Enki who pronounced blessings on Adam and Eve. We have also explained that the name Adam fundamentally means Earthling. It was both a name of the individual Adam, the first viable Earthling, as well as that of mankind in general. Human beings are Adamites.
Sequentially, the creation of Earthlings first takes place in GENESIS 1:27, which reads, “So God (the Elohim, that is, Enki, Ningishzidda, and Ninmah) created man (Adam, the first viable human being) in his (their) own image; in the image of God (the Elohim) he (Enki) created him (Adam); male and female he created them ( Adam and Eve)”.
The “male and female” statement refers to the stage when Birth Mothers alternated in groups of seven to produce males patterned after Adam, and when they again alternated in groups of seven to produce females patterned after Eve. So the Genesis account is far from contradictory folks, at least in this context.
THE PROTOTYPES ON SHOW AT ERIDU
Eve, like Adam, was to be preserved. Her DNA was to be used to produce female Earthlings, just as Adam’s DNA would be used to produce male Earthlings. It was actually decided by Enki that Eve join Adam at Eridu, his base in the Edin in Mesopotamia. This was all the more apt because Enlil, who greatly distrusted Enki, personally wanted to keep a close watch on the couple.
In the old Avestan language, a sister tongue to the Vedic Sanskrit of India, the Edin was referred to as Pairi Daize (from pairi [around] and diz [to make, form, build]). A Pairi Daize was therefore something of a castle – a fortified, walled building or groups of building with watch towers for maximum vigil (the Setswana term Phara–disa, meaning “securely watched over”, drives the point crisply home).
Parts of the Edin were as fortified and as tightly guarded because, first, they housed the royal Anunnaki (the “gods”), and second, they harboured the highly prized shems, or rocket ships. But the Edin was more than that. It had an orchard, a zoo, a royal park, acres of cultivated land, pastoral animals, a sprawl of lush green lawns, and tracts of pastureland.
It is from Pairi Daize we get the English word Paradise. In time, Paradise would assume several derivative meanings, including idyllic place, utopia, Heaven, dwelling place of God, etc.
In the ethereally beautiful Edin, the two prototypes roamed about freely and happily, with a conducive cage as their lodging. Note that Adam and Eve were not as civilised as we are; they were probably only half so. They could talk and take instructions all right, but they still retained a strong animal persona.
Thus, they went about naked without a care in the world, prancing about with some corralled animals and gorging themselves on fruits and wild roots, and the occasional roasted meat. When the Bible talks of the “Garden of Eden”, it is actually referring to this orchard: it was not Eden (the Edin ) itself, but it was in a section of the Edin, the Anunnaki’s confederate of city states established in modern-day southern Iraq.
ENKI’S CREATION FAIL TO REPRODUCE
Meanwhile, at the Bit Shiimti in East Africa, Ningishzidda kept constant vigil over the bunch of other Earthlings begotten through the Birth Mothers. They too had been set up in cages amongst the surrounding woods because on several occasions when they were allowed a bit of freedom, they stole away into the jungles, their animal instincts being rather pronounced.
As they neared puberty, Ningishzidda observed them day and night. When he saw that they were now copulating, he breathed a sigh of glee: soon kids would be on the way and soon the Anunnaki miners would be headed back to Nibiru. These Lulus, however, were not reproducing. What had gone wrong?
Ningishzidda, who was a reputed DNA expert, sought his father’s take and after pondering the matter deeply, Enki understood why! The Lulus were hybrids: they were a combination of two species – the Anunnaki, who were humanoids, and Ape-Woman (Homo Erectus), who was an animal. “By two kinds combined, a curse has been created!” Enki realised.
How true! Even in our modern-day, we know that hybrids do not innately reproduce: they can only do so after painstaking genetic re-engineering by scientists. The best example is a mule – a cross between a male donkey and a female horse. Mules don’t produce young in that they are the result of two different species.
Enki suggested that they study the DNA of Adam and Eve much more profoundly this time. This they did in a laboratory at Shurrupak, the Edin city-state under Ninmah’s charge. Enki and Ninmah watched as Ningishzidda dissected the DNA of the two prototypes.
“The essences (DNA) of Adamu and Tiamat were contemplated,” Enki relates in his memoir. “With the life essence of Anunnaki males and females they were compared. Like 22 branches on a Tree of Life were the essences. Their bits were comparable, the images and likenesses they properly determined.
Twenty-two they were in number; the ability to procreate they did not include! Another two bits of the essence in the Anunnaki present Ningishzidda showed. One male, one female; without them there was no procreating, so he was explaining. In the moulds of Adam and Tiamat, in the combining they were not included!”
Now, the information I’m imparting to you originally came from clay tablets inscribed 6000 years ago by the Sumerians. The Sumerians, My Brother, knew 6000 years ago about man’s genetic blueprint called DNA. They knew that DNA was made up of two entwined strands.
They knew the number of chromosomes (bits) in each sex cell. Yet modern science only came to know about the existence of DNA in the second half of the 20th century. Who endowed the Sumerians with this kind of knowledge? It was the Anunnaki of course, as Enki’s writings clearly confirm. And we say the ancients were unlettered, benighted dunderheads! This Earth, My Brother…
ENKI WAS TREE OF KNOWLEDGE
In Genesis, the first book of the Hebrew Bible, commonly known as the Old Testament, we are told that the Garden of Eden had two trees that stood at its centre. They were the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. The Christian clergy has taken this characterisation literally: they portray them as real, fruit-bearing trees indeed.
That is self-deluding. The Trees were no trees at all: they were images of something much more profound (Note, though, that there did exist a “plant of life”, which Ninmah had brought from Nibiru, but this does not apply in the Eden context).
Let us first put into perspective, once again, exactly where Adam and Eve were based. They were in the broader, mid-eastern region called the Edin or Eden as per Genesis. The Edin was made up of several city-states, 7 in all. Although Enlil, the Bible’s primary Jehovah/Yahweh, was the governor-general of the Edin, each of the 7 city-states had its own overseer.
Only Nippur, the spaceport, was directly overseen by Enlil: the remaining six city-states had its own direct overseer. Eridu, for instance, was under the rulership of Enki, notwithstanding the fact that he spent most of his time in the Abzu, Africa. It was on the outskirts of Eridu, in an orchard surrounded by a zoo, that Adam and Eve lived.
We will not address ourselves to the Tree of Life at this stage: we will do so in due course. At this juncture, we will restrict ourselves to the Tree of Knowledge. As the Anunnaki’s greatest scientist and greatest intellect, Enki was dubbed the God of Knowledge.
And as a master geneticist, he was synonymous with DNA, which was figuratively referred to as the Tree of Knowledge (that is, knowledge related to programming life). Thus the Tree of Knowledge that stood in the centre of the Garden of Eden denoted Enki. Enki and Enlil were the central figures of the Edin. In particular, Enki, being the head of Eridu, was the city-state’s central figure. Please bear that in mind.
THE CASE OF THE MISSING CHROMOSOME
When Enki said he wanted to create a primitive worker (Lulu Amelu) and Enlil was finally obligated to lend his blessings to the project by King Anu, “Our Father Who Art In Heaven”, he did so subject to several preconditions. Although we have outlined these in an earlier piece, we will here restate a few.
The first precondition was that the primitive worker had to be intellectually inferior to the Anunnaki, basically primitive: it was enough that he was able to handle tools and follow simple instructions. The second was that he had to be much smaller in build to underline the point that he was indeed inferior and to prevent him from harbouring delusions of either equality or grandeur.
The third was that he should not have the same lifespan as the Anunnaki. If the Anunnaki were to embed in him the belief that they were gods, his lifespan had to be only a fraction theirs (the Anunnaki could live up to a million Earth years). Finally, Enlil insisted that the worker race was not to reproduce on their own: they were to arise only through the part-natural, part-artificial process of cloning.
Whilst Enki did undertake to abide by Enlil’s terms, by way of DNA manipulation, that is, he secretly reserved the right to relax some of them. Thus the efforts to get Adam and Eve to reproduce were done without the knowledge and sanction of Enlil. As hinted above, one reason Adam and Eve were transferred to Eridu was in order for Enlil to keep tabs on them just in case something untoward developed.
Every time living things reproduce, DNA is copied so that basic characteristics are passed on. We look or behave more or less like our parents, for instance, because we carry their DNA. DNA is innately dynamic: it improves itself with the passage of time although it can also degenerate.
A million or so years down the line, mankind will be much bigger and taller than he is today and better adapted to Earth’s environment. Our brain capacity will also be vastly improved. We will be more resistant to diseases to which we are all too susceptible today.
Let us now go back to the laboratory at Shurrupak, where Enki, Ningishzidda, and Ninmah were reviewing Adam and Eve’s DNA after noticing that the Lulus at their East African-based R&D facility, the Bit Shiimti, were not producing kids. Examining the sex cell DNA and comparing it with that of the Anunnaki, Ningishzidda noted that the two were not identical.
Anunnaki sex cell DNA contained 23 chromosomes, whereas the Lulu’s sex cell DNA had 22 chromosomes (DNA is made up of pieces called chromosomes and each chromosome has thousands of genes. An ordinary cell in mankind has 23 pairs of chromosomes, or 46 in total.
But the sex cells, that is, the sperm and ovum, carry only half that number so that when fertilisation takes place, the combination of 23 chromosomes each from a male and a female restores the total to 46). Why were the numbers different? Obviously this was the result of an oversight in the genetic tinkering by hands-on man Ningishzidda, which he did admit, but scientifically how can that be explained?
As hinted above, Mankind (Adam and Eve)wasnot a species. He was a hybrid, a mixture of two different species. These two species were the Anunnaki and Ape-Woman, Homo Erectus. Because mankind was a hybrid, he did not have the same number of chromosomes as Ape Woman nor did he have the same number of chromosomes as the Anunnaki.
Every species has a distinct number of chromosomes. A dog has 78, for instance. The Anunnaki had 23 sex chromosomes and Ape-Woman in all probability had 24 (our closest cousins as primates, the chimpanzees, have 24). Mankind had 22.
Hence, were Adam and Eve to mate, fertilisation would not taken place because the absence of the 23rd and 24th chromosome meant there wasn’t a genetic definition in their genome of exactly what to produce – whether an Anunnaki embryo or a Homo Erectus embryo. The reproductive slot was therefore blank.
Enki suggested to Ningishzidda that an operation be conducted both on the two Earthlings and two opposite-sex Anunnaki which would introduce the 23rd chromosome into the Earthlings’ gene pool. In males, the 23rd sex chromosome can take the form of either X or Y, something chosen at random by nature.
In females, the 23rd sex chromosome is always an X. What this meant was that Enki had to on-pass his 23rd sperm chromosome to Adam and Ninmah had to on-pass her 23rd egg chromosome to Eve. Exactly how was this to be done?
Seventy-seven years ago, on the evening of December 2, 1943, the Germans launched a surprise air raid on allied shipping in the Italian port of Bari, which was then the key supply centre for the British 8th army’s advance in Italy.
The attack was spearheaded by 105 Junkers JU88 bombers under the overall command of the infamous Air Marshal Wolfram von Richthofen (who had initially achieved international notoriety during the Spanish Civil War for his aerial bombardment of Guernica). In a little over an hour the German aircraft succeeded in sinking 28 transport and cargo ships, while further inflicting massive damage to the harbour’s facilities, resulting in the port being effectively put out of action for two months.
Over two thousand ground personnel were killed during the raid, with the release of a secret supply of mustard gas aboard one of the destroyed ships contributing to the death toll, as well as subsequent military and civilian casualties. The extent of the later is a controversy due to the fact that the American and British governments subsequently covered up the presence of the gas for decades.
At least five Batswana were killed and seven critically wounded during the raid, with one of the wounded being miraculously rescued floating unconscious out to sea with a head wound. He had been given up for dead when he returned to his unit fourteen days later. The fatalities and casualties all occurred when the enemy hit an ammunition ship adjacent to where 24 Batswana members of the African Pioneer Corps (APC) 1979 Smoke Company where posted.
Thereafter, the dozen surviving members of the unit distinguished themselves for their efficiency in putting up and maintaining smokescreens in their sector, which was credited with saving additional shipping. For his personal heroism in rallying his men following the initial explosions Company Corporal Chitu Bakombi was awarded the British Empire Medal, while his superior officer, Lieutenant N.F. Moor was later given an M.B.E.
Remember: bricks and cement are used to build a house, but mutual love, respect and companionship are used to build a HOME. And amongst His signs is this: He creates for you mates out of your own kind, so that you may find contentment (Sukoon) with them, and He engenders love and tenderness between you; in this behold, there are signs (messages) indeed for people who reflect and think (Quran 30:21).
This verse talks about contentment; this implies companionship, of their being together, sharing together, supporting one another and creating a home of peace. This verse also talks about love between them; this love is both physical and emotional. For love to exist it must be built on the foundation of a mutually supportive relationship guided by respect and tenderness. As the Quran says; ‘they are like garments for you, and you are garments for them (Quran 2:187)’. That means spouses should provide each other with comfort, intimacy and protection just as clothing protects, warms and dignifies the body.
In Islam marriage is considered an ‘ibaadah’, (an act of pleasing Allah) because it is about a commitment made to each other, that is built on mutual love, interdependence, integrity, trust, respect, companionship and harmony towards each other. It is about building of a home on an Islamic foundation in which peace and tranquillity reigns wherein your offspring are raised in an atmosphere conducive to a moral and upright upbringing so that when we all stand before Him (Allah) on that Promised Day, He will be pleased with them all.
Most marriages start out with great hopes and rosy dreams; spouses are truly committed to making their marriages work. However, as the pressures of life mount, many marriages change over time and it is quite common for some of them to run into problems and start to flounder as the reality of living with a spouse that does not meet with one’s pre-conceived ‘expectations’. However, with hard work and dedication, couples can keep their marriages strong and enjoyable. How is it done? What does it take to create a long-lasting, satisfying marriage?
Below are some of the points that have been taken from a marriage guidance article I read recently and adapted for this purposes.
POSITIVITY Spouses should have far more positive than negative interactions. If there is too much negativity — criticizing, demanding, name-calling, holding grudges, etc. — the relationship will suffer. However, if there is never any negativity, it probably means that frustrations and grievances are not getting ‘air time’ and unresolved tension is accumulating inside one or both partners waiting to ‘explode’ one day.
“Let not some men among you laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor let some women laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames.” (49:11)
We all have our individual faults though we may not see them nor want to admit to them but we will easily identify them in others. The key is balance between the two extremes and being supportive of one another. To foster positivity in a marriage that help make them stable and happy, being affectionate, truly listening to each other, taking joy in each other’s achievements and being playful are just a few examples of positive interactions. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “The believers who show the most perfect faith are those who have the best character and the best of you are those who are best to their wives”
Another characteristic of happy marriages is empathy; understanding your spouses’ perspective by putting oneself in his or her shoes. By showing that understanding and identifying with your spouse is important for relationship satisfaction. Spouses are more likely to feel good about their marriage and if their partner expresses empathy towards them. Husbands and wives are more content in their relationships when they feel that their partners understand their thoughts and feelings.
Successful married couples grow with each other; it simply isn’t wise to put any person in charge of your happiness. You must be happy with yourself before anyone else can be. You are responsible for your actions, your attitudes and your happiness. Your spouse just enhances those things in your life. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers.”
Successful marriages involve both spouses’ commitment to the relationship. The married couple should learn the art of compromise and this usually takes years. The largest parts of compromise are openness to the other’s point of view and good communication when differences arise.
When two people are truly dedicated to making their marriage work, despite the unavoidable challenges and obstacles that come, they are much more likely to have a relationship that lasts. Husbands and wives who only focus on themselves and their own desires are not as likely to find joy and satisfaction in their relationships.
Another basic need in a relationship is each partner wants to feel valued and respected. When people feel that their spouses truly accept them for who they are, they are usually more secure and confident in their relationships. Often, there is conflict in marriage because partners cannot accept the individual preferences of their spouses and try to demand change from one another. When one person tries to force change from another, he or she is usually met with resistance.
However, change is much more likely to occur when spouses respect differences and accept each other unconditionally. Basic acceptance is vital to a happy marriage. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “It is the generous (in character) who is good to women, and it is the wicked who insults them.” “Overlook (any human faults) with gracious forgiveness.” (Quran 15:85)
COMPASSION, MUTUAL LOVE AND RESPECT
Other important components of successful marriages are love, compassion and respect for each other. The fact is, as time passes and life becomes increasingly complicated, the marriage is often stressed and suffers as a result. A happy and successful marriage is based on equality. When one or the other dominates strongly, intimacy is replaced by fear of displeasing.
It is all too easy for spouses to lose touch with each other and neglect the love and romance that once came so easily. It is vital that husbands and wives continue to cultivate love and respect for each other throughout their lives. If they do, it is highly likely that their relationships will remain happy and satisfying. Move beyond the fantasy and unrealistic expectations and realize that marriage is about making a conscious choice to love and care for your spouse-even when you do not feel like it.
Seldom can one love someone for whom we have no respect. This also means that we have to learn to overlook and forgive the mistakes of one’s partner. In other words write the good about your partner in stone and the bad in dust, so that when the wind comes it blows away the bad and only the good remains.
Paramount of all, marriage must be based on the teachings of the Noble Qur’an and the teachings and guidance of our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). To grow spiritually in your marriage requires that you learn to be less selfish and more loving, even during times of conflict. A marriage needs love, support, tolerance, honesty, respect, humility, realistic expectations and a sense of humour to be successful.
The past week or two has been a mixed grill of briefs in so far as the national employment picture is concerned. BDC just injected a further P64 million in Kromberg & Schubert, the automotive cable manufacturer and exporter, to help keep it afloat in the face of the COVID-19-engendered global economic apocalypse. The financial lifeline, which follows an earlier P36 million way back in 2017, hopefully guarantees the jobs of 2500, maybe for another year or two.
It was also reported that a bulb manufacturing company, which is two years old and is youth-led, is making waves in Selibe Phikwe. Called Bulb Word, it is the only bulb manufacturing operation in Botswana and employs 60 people. The figure is not insignificant in a town that had 5000 jobs offloaded in one fell swoop when BCL closed shop in 2016 under seemingly contrived circumstances, so that as I write, two or three buyers have submitted bids to acquire and exhume it from its stage-managed grave.
