Gold galore turns up in South America courtesy of the Flood!
At the time of the Deluge, Noah already had three sons. Born 6000 years (100 years in the Bible) before the Deluge, they were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. This is the order in which they are typically listed in the Bible, implying that Shem was the oldest and Japhet was the youngest.
But the Bible itself is not uniformly consistent in designating who occupied what position in the pecking order. GENESIS 10:21, for instance, says, “Sons were also born to Shem, whose older brother was Japheth”. This makes Japheth senior to Shem and Ham the lastborn as opposed to being the middle son.
Why do the authors of Genesis betray such unabashed uncertainty on the matter? The answer is simple: they had a vested interest in terms of who they wanted to project as the heir to Noah. Since Shem was the pick of the Enlilites and the authors of Genesis (the Levites, a Jewish tribe) were Enlil’s people, they exalted Shem.
Yet the fact of the matter is that all of Noah’s three sons were born in the same year. The Bible itself is matter-of-fact on this phenomenon. GENESIS 5:32 (literally translated as opposed to the paraphrase found in most versions of the Bible) says, “Noah was 500 years old (30,000 years old in Sumerian records) when he begot Shem, Ham, and Japheth”. The three sons were born in the same year. How and why?
There are two likely scenarios. Either the three were born to three different mothers in the natural way or they were Test Tube babies who had been genetically tinkered with to yield refined but distinctive traits. Both the Bible and the Sumerian records far from characterises Noah as a polygamist or a philanderer but he did certainly have concubines as all Biblical patriarchs did, making the Test Tube scenario the more plausible. And whose subtle hand do we see behind this clearly deliberate move to fast-track the emergence of a new generation? It’s Enki of course!
If you recall, the Deluge was anticipated about 25,000 years before it happened. Enki was aware of its full ramifications – that it could extinct the human race, his own creation. As such, he decided, 6,000 years before the Deluge struck, to use Noah, his biological son, as the medium through which the human race was going to be perpetuated post the Deluge.
In the event, Noah had three women (one of whom must have been Noah’s wife Emzara) implanted with Test Tube embryos arising from Noah’s seed, resulting in the birth of Shem, Japhet and Ham. Note that contrary to the commonly held belief, the three did not consist of different races – Caucasian, Semitic, and Hamitic. All were one colour and that colour was darkish, like Falashan Jews. As for the reason different skin tones that include paler races have come to be, that we will address at the appropriate time.
It should also be borne in mind that the names by which the three sons are best known are not original: they were given retrospectively by Jewish chroniclers to reflect what transpired in due course. Hence, Japheth, meaning “Fair One”, was so-dubbed because the Caucasians of the Caucasus region in Central Asia descended from him. Ham, meaning “brown” or “dark”, in the sense of being sunburnt, was so-dubbed because his descendants were dark-brown.
Shem is thought to mean “renowned” or “famous”, but that is a secondary meaning. The original meaning was “Rocket”. Shem’s descendants (the real “Shemites” or “Semites” as per popular spelling, now known as Jews) were chosen by Enlil to protect (by way of being foot soldiers) the Anunnaki spaceport in the Sinai Peninsula. They were thus, in a manner of speaking, the “Guardians of the Rockets”. So the Shem tag was intended to reflect this favoured status by Enlil.
NINURTA STUMBLES UPON PLENTIFUL GOLD
Long before the Deluge broke out, Enlil, the Bible’s main Jehovah/Yahweh, had sent an Anunnaki team led by his firstborn son Ninurta to what we today call the Americas to seek out the race of humans Cain had founded. The idea was to cultivate a rallying force to counter Marduk, who had commanded a huge human following due to his pro-human sympathies as opposed to Enlil’s hard boiled sternness that denounced the human population as little more than serfs.
Ninurta was accompanied by his immediate younger brother Nannar-Sin and his nephew (Sin’s son) Utu-Shamash. The three did find the Cainite civilisation there all right and went out of their way to ingratiate themselves to them. They taught them all the tricks in relation to modernising their lives and improving their standard of living.
Their base (that is, the Ninurta team) was two islands in South America known today as Titicaca and Coati respectively and which are situated around modern-day Bolivia and Peru. At the time, however, they were called the Island of the Sun and the Island of the Moon respectively. The Island of the Sun was named after Shamash, whose celestial counterpart was the Sun, and the Island of the Moon was named after Sin, whose prospective celestial counterpart was the Moon.
Whereas Sin decided to shelter from the Deluge by staying on the Moon and Shamash by going into orbit, Ninurta chose to ride out the watery disaster right here on Earth in South America, where its effects were reckoned to be minimal. In a way, Ninurta was to the Amerindians what Noah was to the people of Shuruppak. A fairly gifted craftsman, he taught them how to build a sophisticated type of raft that would keep them afloat when the Deluge hit.
Luckily as predicted, the Deluge was not as pronounced in the Americas as it was elsewhere and so those who had rafts, made makeshift homes in mountain caves or simply moved to high-altitude topography survived it. They were henceforth to refer to Ninurta as their “Great Protector”, a title of a deity.
After the Flood had subsided, Enlil called an assembly of the Anunnaki at Baalbek as we saw last week. Ninurta was detailed by Enlil to explore new sources of gold (for the sake of planet Nibiru, which again had lost its atmospheric shield of gold dust, also known as Ormus) in the Americas as that part of the world was not that inundated by the Deluge.
Ninurta did likewise and was surprised at what he discovered. Whereas in Africa the Deluge had clogged up the mines, it had exposed a mother lode of pure gold and copper in that part of the Andes mountain range overlooking Lake Titicaca in today’s Peru and Bolivia. This was what is called Placer Gold – gold which simply washed down the mountains and formed part of the alluvial deposit of the Lake Titicaca bed. The gold did not need smelting or refining: only panning and collecting.
An ecstatic Ninurta reported thus to Enlil: “The avalanche of waters deep cut into the mountainsides there and tore from the mountainsides uncounted gold, in nuggets large and small. To the rivers below (gold nuggets) fell down. Without mining can the gold be hauled!” The moment Enlil and Enki heard this, they flew to South America to assess the situation firsthand. The two seniormost Anunnaki “gods” were equally dumbfounded. “A miracle it is,” Enki said to Enlil.
“What by Nibiru was wrought, by Nibiru was amended!” On his part, Enlil imputed it all to First Source rather than the Celestial Lord that was planet Nibiru. “The unseen hand of the Creator of All is involved,” he said. “It is his desire to enable life on Nibiru!”
NEW SPACEPORT IN THE AMERICAS
When King Anu heard of this providential treasure trove of gold, he was greatly relieved. The solution to Nibiru’s resurgent ozone hole problem had practically overnight become a certainty. The King accordingly ordered that a new spaceport be established around Lake Titicaca forthwith so that the gold could easily be airlifted to Mars onward to Nibiru. The King was even all the more upbeat that there was ready manpower in the form of the Cainites to perform all the required manual tasks.
Enlil and Enki went to work straightaway. “For a new plain whose soil has dried and hardened they searched,” says The Lost Book of Enki. “In the proximity of the Landing Place, in a desolate peninsula, such a plain they found. Flat as a quiet lake it was, by white mountains (the snow-peaked Andes Mountain range) it was surrounded.” This was the beginning of a series of the enigmatic Nazca Lines of the Nazca Desert in southern Peru, which over the centuries have baffled archaeologists.
But the natives know better: they attribute them to the “gods”, that is, the Anunnaki, a claim dismissed as utter superstition by scientific (read: naïve) minds. The Anunnaki etched the Nazca lines onto the runway primary as aviational signals for landing spacecraft, although they did have a sacred geometrical purpose as well.
But it was not only Nibiru-destined gold that was critical at this juncture: the survival of the Anunnaki, as well as the worker race that was mankind, was too. Both the two races needed agricultural and animal products to live on. Once again, Enki and Enlil went to work. Although the Deluge had receded, the planet was still water-logged by and large and so there was need for large-scale land reclamation and drainage activity.
Since the Anunnaki were so few and far between, most of whom having returned to Nibiru pre-Deluge, it’s small wonder Enlil bid surviving mankind to be “fruitful and multiply”: he wanted them to reproduce rapidly and expeditiously and slavishly serve the needs of the Anunnaki, not to have dominion over Earth, has Enki had purposed when he fashioned Adam and Eve. To Enlil, humans were no more than a slave race: period.
Meanwhile, Enki and Enlil assigned specific tasks to various parties. Ninurta was pointed to the Cedar Mountains, where he was to embark on damming and drainage work to facilitate the cultivation of cereals, notably wheat and barley, on the mountain slopes. In the terracing work, he was to be assisted by Japheth, one of Noah’s three sons. Ishkur-Adad was to raise an orchard in the areas where the waters had sufficiently abated. He was to be assisted by Noah’s son Shem.
Dumuzi, Enki’s youngest son, was assigned shepherding activities. He was to be assisted by Noah’s son Ham. An ecstatic Dumuzi, who had always been the Anunnaki’s leading pastoral farmer after undergoing specialised animal husbandry training on Nibiru for a full shar, exclaimed: “Sheep for wool and meat will multiply, cattle for milk and hides will all have. Then with other living creatures the Earth we shall replenish!”
The raw materials for all agricultural products, in the form of reproductive cells, seeds, and DNA were provided by Enki’s son Ninagal, who had preserved them on Noah’s ark whilst the Deluge raged. Noah himself, who was still amongst his people pending his relocation to a soon-to-be-established new “Paradise” in the Sinai Peninsula, was tasked to plant a vineyard. He cultivated the very first food item after the Deluge – grapes. Grape wine also served as a gastro-intestinal medicine. So when the Bible says Noah got drunk after consuming too much wine, it may not necessarily have been intentional: he could simply have overdosed on his medicine!
JERUSALEM IS NEW HUB OF EARTH
Before the Deluge, the Anunnaki had three principal precincts. The first two were right in the Edin, Eden in the Bible, in modern-day Iraq. These were Nippur (or Nibruki) and Sippar. Nippur was the Mission Control Centre and as such was so crucial that Enlil, Earth’s Chief Executive, was based there. Next in strategic importance was Sippar, the spaceport, which was governed by Utu-Shamash, Enlil’s grandson. Finally, there was Baalbek at the summit of the Cedar Mountains.
This was the Landing Place, the major airport. Although it was not based in the Edin, Baalbek was overseen by Utu-Shamash, who was the Anunnaki’s maestro pilot and cosmonaut. After the Deluge, Nippur and Sippar both lay in ruins: only Baalbek survived. A new spaceport and Mission Control Centre had to be built from scratch.
The new spaceport, also known as the Place of the Chariots (Rockets), was set up in the Sinai Peninsula, with the instrument-equipped Mount Mashu as the key landmark for descending spaceships. The new Mission Control Centre, the so-called Bond-Heaven-Earth (that is, the electronic communications link between Earth and planet Nibiru) was to be Mount Moriah at Jerusalem, which Enlil named “Mount of Way Showing”.
Jerusalem had thus become the new “Navel of the Earth”, the new Nippur. It was the place Enlil, known as Yahweh/Jehovah in the Bible, was to be based. It explains why Jerusalem is such a moot point between the children of Abraham – the Jews and the Arabs. It still retains enormous symbolic value as the “City of God” and is also eschatologically significant as the one place on Earth that will serve as the HQ for Yahweh’s “New Earth” when he returns. Baalbek was to retain its erstwhile role as the Landing Place.
Meanwhile, the twin peaks of Mount Ararat were to serve as the northern aviational landmark, the same role they had played before the Deluge. But Enlil wanted another set of twin landmarks in the south to constitute part and parcel of the Landing Grid. To that end, he chose a site where “mountains there were none: only a flatland above the water-clogged valley from the ground protruded”.
This was in the Sahara Desert in today’s Egypt (at the time, the Sahara was not the barren wasteland it is today: it pulsated with lush vegetation). The proposition was clearly a no-brainer but Enlil insisted that it was the only ideal place in Egypt along the 30th Parallel for a landmark to be established. For reasons best known to the Anunnaki, the 30th Parallel (Latitude 30 degrees north) seems to have a certain mysterious significance as the so-called sacred cities from Egypt to Tibet have all been located on it.
ZIDDA HONOUR CAUSES A FRACAS
It was Ningishzidda, Enki’s genius son, who stepped forward and argued that Enlil’s idea was not absurd at all. Twin artificial peaks, he pointed out, could be raised from the Sahara plain. Within days, he had already come up with a scale model. The Giza pyramids (named after Ningishzidda himself, also known as Gizzidda or simply Zidda in short), comprising of one large one and two smaller ones, were in the making, but the focus was on the large one, the Giza Pyramid proper, which was the first to arise. It was to serve as a beacon to arriving spacecraft, just like the Ararat mountain peaks in central Asia.
When the Giza Pyramid was complete, Enlil commissioned it and called it the Ekur, meaning “House which is like a Mountain”. Its capstone, which was designed by Enki’s other son Gibil, was made of electrum. Enlil said besides its aviational purpose, the Giza Pyramid was a proclamation to posterity that the Anunnaki valiantly survived the Deluge.
In a poem recited and sang by Ninmah on the occasion of its commissioning, the Giza Pyramid was in part described in the following words: “For Heaven-Earth it is equipped, the handiwork of the Anunnaki it is. House bright and dark, house of Heaven and Earth. For the celestial boats it was put together, by the Anunnaki built. House whose interior with a reddish light of heaven glows, a pulsating beam that far and high reaches it emits … Beyond the understanding of Earthlings it is. House of equipment, lofty house of eternity … House that for the rocketships is a landmark, with unfathomable insides.”
From the above statement, it is clear that besides being an aviational landmark, the Giza Pyramid served several other purposes withheld from Earthlings, which we shall dwell upon at a later stage. Enki also came up with the proposal that another structure be built alongside the Giza Pyramid as a monument to mark the dawn of the astrological Age of Leo. Once again, Ningishzidda was assigned to erect it.
The monument is today known as the Great Sphinx of Giza, which has the body of a lion and the face of a man. To honour the person who fashioned it (out of an already existing rock), the Sphinx was to bear the face of Ningishzidda, a tribute that did not sit well with Marduk.
Marduk was irate. He confronted his father, Enki, and complained that he was being eclipsed in eminence by his younger brother. “To dominate the whole Earth to me did you promise,” he thundered. “Now command and glory to others are granted, without task or dominion I am left. In my erstwhile domain are the artificed mounts situated, on the lion the image mine must be!”
But it was all in vain: Marduk didn’t get his face to be etched into the Sphinx as the matter was not only up to Enki but the whole pantheon. Be that as it may, Marduk’s bone of contention set up a racket. Everybody now – Enlil and Enki’s sons – began to jockey for own personal honours. In particular, they wanted to be allocated new domains where they would reign supreme. The brouhaha was such that Ninmah was called upon to appeal for calm though to no avail. How were Enlil and Enki going to pacify their brood?
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.
