MEANING OF ADAM, EVE, & THE DEVIL (2/4)
By primitive Europeans declaring themselves to be in a Supernatural realm (above the Natural World)–led by Devil-type gods–and thereby being “superior” to all in the Natural World and its Spiritual God, automatically meant they were against everything pertaining to the Spiritual Elements of Unconditional Love, Truth, Reality, and the Natural. That philosophical mindset, by definition, made them Satanists. The later European Christian religion elaborated by making a refinement out of the Kamitic (Egyptian) symbol of the god “Set” and renamed him Satan. This historical pattern of stealing African Traditions’ intellectual knowledge, converting its metaphors into “Facts,” and renaming all African Spirituality aspects, was a routine practice eventually finding its way into the European Bible. A basic reason for the Renaming is sort of explained in the Encyclopaedia Britannica (1992, p 567): “…men have seen in the ability to name an ability to control or to possess….” They defined “naming” as applying a word to pick out and refer to a fellow human being, an animal, an object, or a class of such Beings or objects. The consequences are that after a period of time people forget that what was renamed was attributed to the originator and that the new name is assumed to be created by the one applying the present name. An equally powerful reason for “renaming” and making Supernatural “Facts” out of African mythology was to give an acceptable “SEEMS OKAY” background for mind control of the people as, for example, enablingEuropean scholars to declare all humans to be born sinful. To illustrate, the characters taking part in the original AfricanEthiopian “Fall of Man” scene were not Eve and Adam, but rather Aisha and Aish–shown in the Garden of Eden with the tempting serpent and the fatal tree. In Genesis, the first book of the European Bible, God makes the earth, human males, rodents, animals, insects, plants and everything except a human female.
When Adam, whom European Biblical writers declare was the first male, got bored with all the creations at his disposal, Eve, a woman, was created to simply be a help-mate—not having independent rights. The story continues with the Supernatural God making Eve out of a single rib of Adam–not the heart or brain. By being emotional, Eve was able to be deceived by a serpent, disguised as the devil. In turn, Eve then tempted Adam to go against God. In its original Ethiopian story, the serpent symbolizes the Emotions and sensations as the essence of animalistic behaviors—combining humans’ rational and artistic faculties and behaviors in the service of their sensual nature. Hence, there is no intelligence, morality, or spirituality in the Brain/Minds that generate them. Instead, they are vehicles of the Life Force and their imposition of Force over mind, reasoning, and the Will is the cause of all that is wrong in the Universe. Amen (Metu Neter VII: 51) says the European Bible’s purpose for this Adam and Eve story is to make humans better emotional creatures. Apart from that, by man giving birth to a female–(reversing Nature’s laws of females giving birth)–and by Eve tempting Adam served European males’ biblical anti-feminism and served the necessity for European males to be without blame for their self-interest concepts. Gen. 3’s anthropomorphism orientation states God’s wrath caused Adam’s “Fall” and all humans thereafter would be cursed with “Original Sin.”
Anthropomorphism (‘anthropos, man) is the act of endowing god with a human form and human attributes or qualities, like the acquired emotions of anger, wrath, fear, and jealousy. Oddly, some of these (e.g. jealousy) are sins in the European Bible. All of this differs markedly from the Ancient African Bible’s “Neter” or NTR–one of many African names that are equivalent to the Europeans’ Supernatural “God”. African Sages say that by being Unknowable, NTR is described as a Spiritual Force. Nevertheless, by creating God in his own image, the European male can then use God as a model for how to act as “little gods” with people. Since the European Bible says Adam and Eve’s actions ‘forever’ totally corrupted the whole nature of humans (Rom. 7:14, 15), this necessitated humans making Redemption (as determined by what standard?) in order to restore them to their original state. From this came an intimate association of Faith with sin, guilt, and fear. Also appearing from the moral of this story was the core meaning of the word “Fail”–being to deceive (as Satan did to Adam). So, to “Fail” is to fall short of having good success (as happened to Adam from engaging in sin). jabaileymd.com
