Today while driving in hard to-see-heavy rain, I couldn’t but help to think about THE FLOOD. Genesis 7. Noah’s Ark and the animals, etc.
(By the way, Noah was Ziusudra in Sumerian and Utnapishtim in Akkadian). P.S. It wasn’t an ark, it was a submersible “boat,” aka, “submarine-like,” and the “SEED of all living things,” that is, the genes that were placed on the “boat,’ not ALL the animals, 2 by 2!, etc.
Yahweh says: “For in seven days’ time I mean to make it rain on the earth for forty days and nights, and I will rid the earth of every living thing that I made,” because of their wickedness.
But, a la Sitchin, it was when the sons of the gods began to be sexually involved with the Earthings (decreasing genetic purity) that the Deity said, “Enough!” (See pages 335-363 in The 12th Planet; and, in Atra-Hasis: The Babylonian Story of the Flood). The entire ordeal lasted a year and ten days. Pertinent here are the Twenty-ninth, the 77th and 104th Psalms.
Sitchin focuses on Earth’s climatic changes and the abrupt collapse of the ice age some 13,000 years ago. Sitchin’s conclusion: the Deluge was the result of the slippage of the Antarctic ice sheets causing the waters of BILLIONS OF TONS of ice, to create an immense tidal wave, a 1000 foot tsunami which spread around the globe. It seems that the instability of the Antarctic ice sheet was affected by the passing of Nibiru and thus plunged the water of the ice sheets into the oceans causing many ancient civilizations to be buried under TONS of mud! and the water level to rise about 400 feet!
No wonder marinearchaeologists are finding a multitude of “lost” cities. Myths become realities and “realities” become myths! Interesting times. P.S. Coming soon: “The day of Darkness,” or “The Day the Sun Stood Still.”
