If Adapa was the first human to undertake a space trip, the second was Etana if we are to go by Sumerian accounts. Etana, as we have already related, was Cain’s firstborn son who sadly has been completely ignored by the writers of Genesis when he was quite an epochal figure as monarchical successor to his father and ruler of the city-state Kish.
Exactly when Etana went to Nibiru is not that clear-cut in the Sumerian records, which can be quite difficult to time in some cases given that some of the events were couched in legendary style. Some chroniclers in fact put the advent of Etana after the Deluge, which doesn’t make sense at all.
The Sumerian King List says Etana was one of 23 kings of Kish who together ruled for a total of 24,510 years. The Deluge happened only 13,000 years ago. Etana’s time therefore could not have been post-diluvial. In any case, the Kish dynasty would have ruled for far much longer than that if we take into account the fact that some figures given by ancient historians were substantially reduced by some mathematical factor.
We did at one stage give the example of Noah, in terms of whom the Bible says the Deluge happened when he was 600 years old but which Berossus puts at a time when he was 36,000 years old – a figure clearly arrived at by multiplying 600 by a factor of 60. It is important, therefore, not to be very dogmatic about figures we encounter in ancient history: they are not unassailably conclusive.
Etana’s saga is narrated in a Sumerian text dubbed The Epic of Etana. He’s said to have been a very popular king who united all the city-states of the Edin, Eden in the Bible. Now, Kish was controlled not by Enkites but Enlilites. Thus unlike Cain, who was a diehard Enkite although he ruled in Kish (the Enlilites called him Arwium, meaning “serpent”, in mockery), Etana was very much a protégé of the Enlilites. He was particularly loved by the notoriously sex-crazed Inanna-Ishtar and was highly valued by her twin-brother Utu-Shamash. The Enlilites had such a sway on Etana that Enki, his paternal grandfather, could not hide his resentment.
Etana had a wife he valued greatly but she was unable to sustain conception because of repeated miscarriages. The Enkites in Enki and his genius son Ningishzidda, not to mention Ninmah, would have easily taken care of this handicap given their mastery of genetics and medicine but they were seemingly repulsed by Etana’s disproportionate allegiance to the Enlilites and so simply looked the other way. Etana, however, badly needed a heir and the Enlilites told him on planet Nibiru grew a fruit-of-the-womb plant known as the Plant of Birth. Soon Etana was put on a spaceship to Nibiru.
When the rocket was space-borne and Earth had disappeared from view, Etana like Adapa before him grew cold feet and demanded that the he be returned to Earth forthwith. In the process, there was a glitch and the spaceship found itself headed for a catastrophic plunge into the wall of a waterfalls. When Inanna-Ishtar got the news on radio, she put her space-navigation skills for which she was renowned to use and Etana’s spaceship was diverted into a grove, where it crash-landed but without fatalities. Etana did finally get to have a heir but how this came about is not addressed in the epic.
THE MERGER OF THE CAINITE AND SETHIAN LINES
Since Etana’s line did not lead to the iconic Noah, it does not at all feature in the Old Testament. Instead, it is that of his younger brother Enoch I and that of his cousin Seth that do. GENESIS 4 and 5 talk about the genealogies of the Cainite and Sethian lines. There are two features that are particularly arresting about the two genealogies. The first is that the names are so uncannily similar, an aspect we have already noted and pronounced upon. The second is that the writers of Genesis show a unabashed ambivalence towards the Cainite line. They at once exalt it and scoff at it.
Since the Cainites (the descendants of Cain) were Enkites, they were extraordinarily gifted thanks to Enki’s super genes. Jubal, for example, was a most entrancing musician, like Enki was, and Tubal-Cain was the most accomplished craftsman of his generation – that is, a master metallurgist – like Enki was. This the Levites, the authors of Genesis, duly recognise. On the other hand, they make a point of calling attention to the fact that the Cainites were a wicked lot.
A certain Lamech is recorded as boasting to his wives that he killed two men and that anybody who would be so foolhardy as to exact vengeance on him would earn himself 70 times the wrath of God. What is ironic, though, is that Lamech was of the conjoined Cainite and Sethian (the descendants of Seth) lines, the reason he features on both lists. How did the two lines merge and why? We did touch on this element at some point but did not sufficiently dwell on it. It thus behoves us to flesh out the argument further.
The Levites were Jews and the Jews were Enlil’s chosen people, Enlil being the most prominent Jehovah/Yahweh as he was Earth’s Chief Executive, initially substantively and in due course only in a patriarchal sense as other members of the Anunnaki pantheon also had their chances at being an Enlil (remember Enlil was simply a title for the Anunnaki ruler of Earth: his own name according to some ancient records was Anen).
We have already related that Adapa, Enki’s son with an Earthling woman, was the first Priest-King of the Earthlings, the Sanga-lugal or Melchizedek. When he died, he was succeeded by Cain. Cain was in turn succeeded by his firstborn son Etana. However, Etana’s line did not lead to Noah, the hero of the Deluge. The line that led to Noah was that of Enoch I, Cain’s second-born son. This is the line that in turn led to Shem, whose descendants, the Jewish people, found favour with Enlil.
As such, Etana’s line became obscure and Enoch I’s line became preeminent, just as Esau’s line became obscure and that of Jacob, his younger brother who appropriated the birthright from him, became preeminent. It was all politics at play rather than merit, consistent with the Enlilites’ characteristic divide and rule stratagem.
Meanwhile, Cain’s younger brother Seth began his own line through his firstborn son Enshi, Enosh in the Bible. Seth also had a second-born child, a daughter called Noam. Now, Seth was the favourite of the Enlilites because unlike Cain, who was fathered by Enki, he was fathered by Adapa and so was easier to co-opt into their faction.
The Enlilite thus wanted his offspring to have a genetic stake in the ruling line. That was only possible if his line merged with Cain’s royal line. As such, a uniting intermarriage was orchestrated. Enoch I and Noam came together in holy matrimony. It is the resultant conjoined line that led to Noah and to Shem.
You will now understand why in Genesis the Cainite line and Sethian line for the most part carry identical names. They were the same people. But since Cain was an Enkite, the pro-Enlil authors of Genesis wanted to give the spurious impression that the Jews sprang from Seth alone and had nothing to do with Cain. In order to create and embed this fiction, they gave two separate Cainite and Sethian lines when in truth the two lines did integrate into one bloodline from the very beginning with the marriage of cousins Enoch I from the Cainite line and Noam from the Sethian line.
If Cain hadn’t been the carrier of the royal gene, his name wouldn’t have come into the mix in the genealogical passages. He would have been ignored altogether. But it was essential to feature him because it was he who lent legitimacy to the conjoined line. Sadly, Christendom has missed this most fundamental of truths and simply dismissed Cain as no more than a cold-blooded murderer.
THE INCEPTION OF WORSHIP
Although the Anunnaki were not gods, humans worshipped them anyway and we continue to worship them today, albeit unwittingly for most. Every time a Christian kneels down to worship Jehovah, scarcely is he or she aware that they are worshipping an Anunnaki being, principally Enlil. Other mainstream religions worship the same Anunnaki gods under different names. The world’s most worshipped gods are Enlil and his second-born son Nannar-Sin, who is the god of the most influential religion in the Middle East.
On their part, the ancients did not worship the Anunnaki at all. This is the generation from Adam to Cain I’m talking about. The Anunnaki came to Earth about 445,000 years ago and created mankind about 300,000 years ago. Yet they were not worshipped by Earthlings until about 95,000 years ago. Initially, there was no worship: there was only workship. Humans were created to serve the Anunnaki, to work for them, and not to worship them.
Even when Adapa became Earth’s first Priest-King, none of his obligations entailed worshipping the Anunnaki. A priest was a shepherd or trustee. That is to say, he took care of the human “flock” on behalf of the Anunnaki. This was not a religious role: it was a jurisprudential role, whereby he saw to it that they unfailingly abided by codes of conduct and civilised norms. That role changed 95,000 years ago to become a religious role. Exactly what happened 95,000 years ago to bring about such a seismic shift?
It was the birth of Enosh to Seth and his Anunnaki wife Kalimath. Of the third generation from Adapa, this being Cain’s sons Etana and Seth’s son Enosh, Enosh was the most human in that he had the least amount of Anunnaki blood coursing in his veins. The name Enosh actually means “Human” in Hebrew but in a demeaning sense as it has connotations of one who is frail or mortal, like we sometimes say “I’m only human” when we perpetrate an outrageous act. Thus the name Enosh was a disparagement. Its other connotation was that of a “commoner”. This was to contrast him with the Cainite line, which was an aristocratic line by virtual of carrying much more Anunnaki blood.
Since Enosh was of a lesser standing genetically, the Enlilites decided to turn him into their worshipper. It was during his advent that mankind began to worship the Anunnaki. GENESIS 4:36 underscores that when it says, “To Seth also a son was born, and he called his name Enosh. At that time people began to call upon the name of the LORD.” Worship of the Anunnaki folks was instituted not by Enki but by Enlil.
From the time Enosh became of age at 12 years old, the Enlilites took him under their wing. They based him at Nippur, Enlil’s cult centre in the Edin, where he was taught three things basically. The first were the rites of worship, all the ceremonies and rituals that were required in the worship of Enlil. The second was to prepare the perfumes for anointing humans who would be brought before the presence of Enlil, a task that Enlil entrusted to Nannar-Sin. The third was to prepare a medicinal potion from what was called the Inbu fruit.
This potion was meant to power the libido of the Anunnaki for we learn from the Epic of Gilgamesh that the nymphomaniacal Inanna-Ishtar begged the well-endowed Gilgamesh to “give me of your Inbu fruit”, that is, make love to her. The skill of preparing the Inbu potion was imparted to Enosh by Ishkur-Adad, Enlil’s youngest son.
Be that as it may, the conduct of worship in Anunnaki days was different from that of our day. In Anunnaki times, people went not to a church or temple: they went to the home of the Anunnaki god himself. And once there, they did not process into the house but simply hovered within the wider premises.
The worship itself was not prayer or supplication: it was simply paying homage, like tourists do when they visit Buckingham Palace, and singing praise and thanksgiving songs. Whatever needs the people wanted to present before the Anunnaki god was done through the Priest-King. It was he only who was allowed to enter the house of the god. Even then, he did not do this alone: he was presented before the god by one member of the Anunnaki pantheon.
THE LINE OF ADAPA
From Adapa to Noah, there were ten generations. Adapa (born about 110,000 years ago) fathered Cain (legally, that is, as he was Enki’s biological son), Abel, and Seth. This was the second generation. Cain begot Etana and Enoch I, whereas Seth (born 103,000 years ago) begot Enosh (95,000 years ago). These marked the third generation.
Enoch I married Noam, Seth’s daughter, to integrate the Cainite and Sethian lines. About 92,000 years ago, the couple had a son Kunin (Cainan in the Bible). Kunin marked the fourth generation. “Kunin, He of the Kilns, his name had the meaning,” relates Enki in The Lost Book of Enki. “For by Ninurta in Bad-Tibira he was tutored, of furnace and kiln there he learned. How with bitumens fires to make, how to smelt and refine he was taught; in the smelting and refining of gold for Nibiru he and his offspring toiled. In the 98th shar did this matter come about.”
Approximately 89,000 years ago, Kunin fathered a son with his half-sister Mualit. His name was Malalu (Mahalaleel/Mehujael in Genesis). “He Who Plays, his name meant,” says Enki. “In music and song he excelled. For him Ninurta a stringed harp made, a flute for him he shaped. Hymns to Ninurta Malalu played, with his daughters before Ninurta they sang.” Malalu was the fifth generation Adapite.
Malalu married his paternal cousin Dunna, by whom he had a son called Irid (Jared/Irad in the Bible). This was 85,000 years ago. Jared meant “He of the sweet waters”. Of him, Enki says, “Dumuzi how wells to dig had taught, for flocks in distant meadows water to provide”. Jared marked the sixth generation since Adapa.
Like Malalu, Jared married his paternal cousin Baraka and about 79,000 years ago the couple had a son they named Enkime, known as Enoch in the Bible and the apocryphal books. We may as well dub him Enoch II to distinguish him from Enoch the son of Cain. Enoch II marked the seventh generation.
Just under 71,000 years ago came a eighth generation Adapite, born to Enoch II and his wife Edinni. He was named Matushal (Methuselah in the Bible). His name meant “God’s Helper”. Enoch II was the father of Lumach (Lamech in the Bible), born about 56,000 years ago, when Adapa died. Adapa thus was alive through the first nine generations of his progeny. The name Lumach meant “Mighty Man”.
Finally came the tenth generational, the most famous of Adapa’s offspring. This was Ziusudra, meaning “Wise Man”. In the Bible, Ziusudra is known as Noah, the hero of that infamous globalwide flood that decimated the population of mankind. Noah was born to Lamech and his wife Batanash 49,000 years ago, but there is a biological twist to the circumstances surrounding his conception courtesy of Enki that we will address at the appropriate time.
We see, therefore, that between the birth of Adapa and the birth of Noah, about 61,200 years passed. The progenitor of the line himself, Adapa, lived for about 55,800 years. The year of Cain’s death is not known but since he was alive when Adapa died, he too must have lived for nearly as long as Adapa. As we have long pointed out, the ages we read in Genesis were microscoped by a certain mathematical factor: they were not literal as the Adapite line lived for thousands of years thanks to the ingestion of Star Fire.
In 2005, the Business & Economic Advisory Council (BEAC) pitched the idea of the establishment of Special Economic Zones (SEZs) to the Mogae Administration.
It took five years before the SEZ policy was formulated, another five years before the relevant law was enacted, and a full three years before the Special Economic Zones Authority (SEZA) became operational.

With the passing of Joshua’s generation, General Atiku, the promised peace and prosperity of a land flowing with milk and honey disappeared, giving way to chaos and confusion.
Maybe Joshua himself was to blame for this shambolic state of affairs. He had failed to mentor a successor in the manner Moses had mentored him. He had left the nation without a central government or a human head of state but as a confederacy of twelve independent tribes without any unifying force except their Anunnaki gods.
If I say the word ‘robot’ to you, I can guess what would immediately spring to mind – a cute little Android or animal-like creature with human or pet animal characteristics and a ‘heart’, that is to say to say a battery, of gold, the sort we’ve all seen in various movies and tv shows. Think R2D2 or 3CPO in Star Wars, Wall-E in the movie of the same name, Sonny in I Robot, loveable rogue Bender in Futurama, Johnny 5 in Short Circuit…
Of course there are the evil ones too, the sort that want to rise up and eliminate us inferior humans – Roy Batty in Blade Runner, Schwarzenegger’s T-800 in The Terminator, Box in Logan’s Run, Police robots in Elysium and Otomo in Robocop.
And that’s to name but a few. As a general rule of thumb, the closer the robot is to human form, the more dangerous it is and of course the ultimate threat in any Sci-Fi movie is that the robots will turn the tables and become the masters, not the mechanical slaves. And whilst we are in reality a long way from robotic domination, there are an increasing number of examples of robotics in the workplace.
ROBOT BLOODHOUNDS Sometimes by the time that one of us smells something the damage has already begun – the smell of burning rubber or even worse, the smell of deadly gas. Thank goodness for a robot capable of quickly detecting and analyzing a smell from our very own footprint.
A*Library Bot The A*Star (Singapore) developed library bot which when books are equipped with RFID location chips, can scan shelves quickly seeking out-of-place titles. It manoeuvres with ease around corners, enhances the sorting and searching of books, and can self-navigate the library facility during non-open hours.
DRUG-COMPOUNDING ROBOT Automated medicine distribution system, connected to the hospital prescription system. It’s goal? To manipulate a large variety of objects (i.e.: drug vials, syringes, and IV bags) normally used in the manual process of drugs compounding to facilitate stronger standardisation, create higher levels of patient safety, and lower the risk of hospital staff exposed to toxic substances.
AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY ROBOTS Applications include screw-driving, assembling, painting, trimming/cutting, pouring hazardous substances, labelling, welding, handling, quality control applications as well as tasks that require extreme precision,
AGRICULTURAL ROBOTS Ecrobotix, a Swiss technology firm has a solar-controlled ‘bot that not only can identify weeds but thereafter can treat them. Naio Technologies based in southwestern France has developed a robot with the ability to weed, hoe, and assist during harvesting. Energid Technologies has developed a citrus picking system that retrieves one piece of fruit every 2-3 seconds and Spain-based Agrobot has taken the treachery out of strawberry picking. Meanwhile, Blue River Technology has developed the LettuceBot2 that attaches itself to a tractor to thin out lettuce fields as well as prevent herbicide-resistant weeds. And that’s only scratching the finely-tilled soil.
INDUSTRIAL FLOOR SCRUBBERS The Global Automatic Floor Scrubber Machine boasts a 1.6HP motor that offers 113″ water lift, 180 RPM and a coverage rate of 17,000 sq. ft. per hour
These examples all come from the aptly-named site www.willrobotstakemyjob.com because while these functions are labour-saving and ripe for automation, the increasing use of artificial intelligence in the workplace will undoubtedly lead to increasing reliance on machines and a resulting swathe of human redundancies in a broad spectrum of industries and services.
This process has been greatly boosted by the global pandemic due to a combination of a workforce on furlough, whether by decree or by choice, and the obvious advantages of using virus-free machines – I don’t think computer viruses count! For example, it was suggested recently that their use might have a beneficial effect in care homes for the elderly, solving short staffing issues and cheering up the old folks with the novelty of having their tea, coffee and medicines delivered by glorified model cars. It’s a theory, at any rate.
Already,customers at the South-Korean fast-food chain No Brand Burger can avoid any interaction with a human server during the pandemic. The chain is using robots to take orders, prepare food and bring meals out to diners. Customers order and pay via touchscreen, then their request is sent to the kitchen where a cooking machine heats up the buns and patties. When it’s ready, a robot ‘waiter’ brings out their takeout bag.
‘This is the first time I’ve actually seen such robots, so they are really amazing and fun,’ Shin Hyun Soo, an office worker at No Brand in Seoul for the first time, told the AP.
Human workers add toppings to the burgers and wrap them up in takeout bags before passing them over to yellow-and-black serving robots, which have been compared to Minions.
Also in Korea, the Italian restaurant chain Mad for Garlic is using serving robots even for sit-down customers. Using 3D space mapping and other technology, the electronic ‘waiter,’ known as Aglio Kim, navigates between tables with up to five orders. Mad for Garlic manager Lee Young-ho said kids especially like the robots, which can carry up to 66lbs in their trays.
These catering robots look nothing like their human counterparts – in fact they are nothing more than glorified food trolleys so using our thumb rule from the movies, mankind is safe from imminent takeover but clearly Korean hospitality sector workers’ jobs are not.
And right there is the dichotomy – replacement by stealth. Remote-controlled robotic waiters and waitresses don’t need to be paid, they don’t go on strike and they don’t spread disease so it’s a sure bet their army is already on the march.
But there may be more redundancies on the way as well. Have you noticed how AI designers have an inability to use words of more than one syllable? So ‘robot’ has become ‘bot’ and ‘android’ simply ‘droid? Well, guys, if you continue to build machines ultimately smarter than yourselves you ‘rons may find yourself surplus to requirements too – that’s ‘moron’ to us polysyllabic humans”!
