If you read this story in the bible, you are seriously misinformed.
Why was it so critical to do away with the common human language? Think about it. If we had a common human language today, we would have superior communication among nations leading to understanding rather than misunderstanding. It would be very difficult for LORD ENLIL to lead us into fear, hatred and ultimately war with those whom we share understanding. Enlil requires misunderstanding to perpetuate the non-stop wars that we see today and forever. He requires us to depopulate ourselves.
LORD Enlil-Jehova-Yahweh is desperate to go down to the city of Babel to break up the Ziggurat project of Marduk’s people and to dispel them in different directions across the earth to confuse their common language. War is the pressing reason. Enlil needs non-stop wars. He needs people to be willing to kill each other, not carry on discussions.
Babel is located in present day Iraq, controlled at that time by Persia, a post Flood development. Egypt was the domain of Lord Enki and during his 9000 year reign as king, he was called Ptah. Marduk, the eldest son of Enki, was given the kingship of Egypt in 11,420 BCE, whence he was called Ra. He ruled Egypt for 100 years, until 10,420 BCE. The rule of Egypt was set up on a planned succession among the heirs of Enki. In this system, the king’s reign was pre-ordained, and conflicts over the kingship were few.
Marduk was born ‘in-heaven’, meaning on the god’s home planet, son of Enki and his wife,the goddess Damkina. Enki’s other wife, his half-sister, Nin-khursag (meaning “Mountain Queen”), the Lady of Life, also known as Nin-mah, the Great Lady and Ninki accompanied him to live in the Earth colony.
It was Enki who first came to Earth to set up the gold mining colony. After a period of time, Enlil, half-brother to Enki, asked his father, Anu, to send him to the Earth colony. Rivalry over succession had always run hot between the half brothers, so the presence of both on Earth was destined to be contentious.
Enki is an engineer and scientist while Enlil is a bureaucrat. Enki is a jovial good hearted god while Enlil is a paranoid, schizophrenic psychopath. Neither are particularly moral, whatever that means. After several incidents on Earth, Anu visited on the next perihelion of 4400 BCE, and lots were cast to determine who would fill the key positions. Anu was to continue his rule of the home planet, Enlil won the position of mission administrator located in the Mesopotamia and Enki was sent to South Africa (the Abzu) to run the mining operations and ultimately the breeding of the human workers, after the miner’s revolt. Neither brother was allowed to enter the territory of the other without prior permission.
When Anu approved the project to create the Adamus, Enlil protested. He was concerned about his responsibility to maintain control of the Adamus should they eventually become too plentiful and powerful. He opposed the project but was over-ruled by Anu. Enki was excited for the challenge and the opportunity to demonstrate his ongoing value to the mission’s success.
Various incidents, which you can read about in other posts on this site, flamed the rivalry and enmity between the brothers. At the end of the ice age around 11,600 BCE, when a great flood was foreseen, the council decided it was time to depart the Earth and return to the home planet. It was decided that all the Adamus and Nephilim would be left to be destroyed by the tsunamis and ensuing floods. This looked like the end of the colony Earth and the human experiment. Enlil was happy to leave the planet wiped clean of the mess they had created.
Enki had a son born of mating with a human female. This son was named Ziasudra, the biblical Noah. Noah was loved deeply by Enki who was wrestling with the problem of being sworn to secrecy about the impending decimation of all humans and Nephilim (hybrids). He contrived a way to disclose this event without directly breaking his oath of secrecy by discussing the matter with Ninki while within earshot of Noah. When Noah later asked him if he was going to perish, Enki told him of his idea to construct a unique watercraft that could withstand the inevitable rolling and tumbling while keeping the family of Noah alive. He also disclosed his idea of bringing on-board DNA from plants and animals to reseed the Earth again once conditions allowed.
In 11,600 BCE, the waning ice age was allowing the Earth to warm and the enormous polar ice caps, accumulated during the ice age, were thawing, creating an unstable situation that could become a disaster by an impending cosmic event that was known to be immanent. This was the near passage of the Nibiru perihelion on its 3600 year orbital cycle. The bible deliberately misinterprets this natural event by attributing the power to create such an cataclysm to Yahweh Jehova. The power to create this type of event was not possessed by Enlil-Yahweh-Jehova. His power was limited to observing that the conditions were ripe for a natural occurrence and to plan to use it against the humans..
The bible, again, misinterprets this situation by claiming that Yahweh Jehova used his non-existent power to punish the humans because they were sinful. Yahweh Jehova hated the humans from day one, and was only too happy to have this natural opportunity to take care of what he saw as a major problem he would otherwise have to leave behind in his departing wake. The paranoid schizophrenic psychopath viewed the very existence of humans as an abomination. He was not above the idea of claiming to have unlimited powers, however, and always considered the humans as sinful, thus warranting destruction. To him, sinful simply meant not following his commandments. This is a totally arbitrary and often irrational set of rules that he imposes on his followers.
The great flood/tsunami occurred, but not all humans were exterminated. When the gods returned to the surface they made this discovery. The existence of the ark of Noah revealed to Enlil that, once again, his half-brother had thwarted his plans. Add this to the E-din incident and the enmity was further stoked. None-the-less, the gods decided to accept the fate of human survival and to remain on Earth for another term with the idea of re-establishing the population and re-teaching the humans the skills necessary to survive and thrive on Earth.
In the post-diluvian period, the gods did not re-establish the gold mining, but rather devoted themselves to the enormous task of reclaiming the Earth’s surface that was covered by 500 feet of mud silt. Everything had to be rebuilt and then they set out to establish new cities on all the continental masses now accessible post ice-age.
Getting back to our topic, the area of Mesopotamia received the first efforts. The families of Enki and Enlil were literally now at-war with each other. As the human population grew, the humans were actively recruited to one side or the other of this feud. The territories were established as either those of Enlil or those of Enki. The lines of conflict were established along these polarities and the concepts of ‘good versus evil’ became more formalized. Since Enlil had previously been in-charge of the area known as Mesopotamia, he recruited the various tribes from the middle east to join under his aegis. Lord Enki-Lucifer had previously been in-charge of Africa and continued to incorporate the humans from this area under his aegis.
Enlil took upon himself the mantle of the good, the supreme, the ‘Only God’. Amongst those humans who comprised his tribe, he cast Lord Enki-Lucifer into the role of the evil one, the serpent, the Satan. The tribes multiplied in numbers and banded together according to their descendancy from the original Patriarchs, falling into the camp of either Enki or Enlil.
Meanwhile, Marduk, the eldest son of Enki, was feeling that his father was being deprived of his rightful ascendancy to the kingship of Nibiru, which, of course, also left him out of what he considered to be his own rightful path to power. His rival was Ninurta, the eldest son of Enlil. All of the sons and daughters of the two power figures were searching for their own avenue to ascendancy and many interesting stories of their adventures exist for future posts.
The story of Marduk is the topic of this post. Marduk was more than ready to make his own power-play. His objectives were to be found in Mesopotamia, the territory of his rival, Ninurta. There existed a degree of respect for Marduk, as he was definitely one of the principal power figures, both on Earth and Nibiru. He was altogether powerful, ambitious and ruthless. Among one of his unsuccessful quests for power, he found himself sealed within the great pyramid of Giza. Fortunately for him, he was saved by his comrades by blasting out an area of the pyramid to access the chamber in which he was sealed.
The great god, Ptah, who ruled Egypt for 9,000 years, returned to Egypt after the Deluge to engage in great works of reclamation and to literally raise the country from the inundating waters. Sumerian texts also attest to Enki’s works in Meluhha (Ethiopia/ Nubia) and Magan (Egypt) in again making them habitable for man, beast, fowl, and plants using the DNA from the ark..
After the lands were made habitable again, Enki divided the length of the African continent between his six sons. Nergal (and wife Ereshkigal) went home to the southernmost domain of Africa; Gibil (“The One of Fire”), having been taught by Enki the secrets of metalworking, took over the mining regions to the north, Ninagal (“Prince of Great Waters”) was given the lakes and headwaters of the Nile (Ethiopia), and Dumuzi (“Son Who Is Life” and whose nickname was “The Herder”) received the grazing pastures of the Sudan. Enki’s fifth and youngest son, Ningishzida,was endowed with the knowledge of his brilliant father and travelled afield to establish new civilizations and to bring them great spiritual culture, understanding and technology, such as the Mayan calendar.. The sixth son, Enki’s first born and legal heir, Marduk, we will deal with now.
Marduk/Ra, the Great God of Egypt, however, had a problem: Egypt was not enough. Ra yearned to rule the whole Earth, to garner for himself what had been denied his father. Ra also wanted to rule from the olden “Navel of the Earth” in Mesopotamia. It was this ambition that led him to abdicate the divine throne of Egypt in favor of his children and grandchildren. It would also lead to the two “Pyramid Wars”, and very nearly to his own death. But Marduk of Babylon was not out of the running yet.
c. 10,420 BCE. Ra fathered Shu (a male, meaning “dryness) and Tefnut (a female, meaning “moisture”). These two set the example for human Pharaohs in later times, in that the brother married his half-sister. Shu and Tefnut began a 700 year reign in Egypt, the deities being still very much in charge there.
c. 10,000 BCE The Tower of Babel incident is one of those strange and perplexing stories. In biblical brief:
“And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar (Sumer); and they dwelt there. And they said to one another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had bricks for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto the heaven (sky); and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD ENLIL-Yahweh came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And he said, Behold, the people are one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the LORD ENLIL scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth; and they abandoned the building of the city. There is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD ENLIL did there confound the language of all the earth; and from thence did the LORD ENLIL scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” [Genesis 11: 1-9]
You should be aware that the Anunnaki gods provided free energy to the entire world via a grid of pyramids eventually located virtually throughout every continent, each located on the important nodes of the ‘ley line grid’ of the Earth. Ziggurats are one of the several types of pyramidal structures that were built by the gods as a component of this network. Pyramids were not built by slave labor nor were they tombs of pharaohs. They have multiple uses but the primary one is a source of electrical energy that was transmitted wirelessly. This form of electrical energy was available to the world until the 18th century CE and the last ‘reset’. At this time, the controllers implemented a much more primitive system based on burning fossil fuels and distributed by wire lines on poles. It is a system that has clamped a lid on the progress of humanity and destroyed the planet. This wireless energy system was obviously not an invention of humans, any more than all the rest of the knowledge and technology of the gods, the evidence of which is found virtually everywhere in the world.
Inasmuch as Noah’s second son, Ham, was the begetter of the Negroid race, and this race came under the tutelage of Enki — does this tell us something about why the blacks were considered inferior from the Enlil-Yahweh point of view? Was the eventual slavery issue in some way connected with Enlil’s bashing of those humans who were followers of Enki instead of himself? Is racial prejudice and bigotry — which seem to exist even today — the result of thousands of years of Enlil bad-mouthing anything that Enki did?
There are semites and anti-semites. The semites are named after their patriarch, Shem. Thus the anti-semites are the descendants of Ham and Japheth, sons of Noah. It appears that Western Man is the descendant of Japheth and Maat.
Thoth (whom the Greeks called Hermes) is none other than Ningishzida, the son of Enki, whom we encountered above. Thoth had not been given specific lands to govern, but in fact was given much of Enki’s scientific knowledge — which in the end may have served him better. Thoth was also a chip off the old block in that he was, according to Plutarch, the father of Isis.
The end result of Nut’s repeated promiscuity was that Osiris, Seth, Isis, and Nephtys were all candidates for the crowns of Egypt. The firstborn son was Osiris, with the greater claim to succession, having been fathered by the great Ra himself
The result of the First Pyramid War was that Seth — from the line of Ptah, Ra, Shu, and Geb — departed Egypt and established his dominion in the land known as Canaan. In the same fashion, Canaan (the god) went against his father, Ham and his brothers, to live, he and his sons, also in the land of Canaan.
The illegal seizure of the area which laid between the Sinai Peninsula and Baalbek, Lebanon was Seth and/or Canaan’s incursion into the lands of Shem, Ninurta, and Enlil.
c. 8,620 B.C.E. Meanwhile, back in Egypt, Lord Earth [Geb] had given to Horus and his line, Upper and Lower Egypt. Seth assumed dominion outside Egypt, and thereafter was deemed by the traditions of Egypt to have become an Asiatic god (The land of Canaan existing within the confines of the continent of Asia).
We might also note that while Inanna was the daughter of Nannar/Sin, the second son of Enlil, Inanna was also the daughter of Ningal, the daughter of Enki and Ninhursag! Inanna and her twin brother Utu/Shamash, may, in fact, be the result of some form of consolidation of the Enlil and Enki lines. This consolidation might have been intended as a means of resolving the ultimate dispute of Enlil and Enki, and perhaps more importantly, of their sons, Ninurta (Enlil’s first born), Marduk (Enki’s first born), and all the descendent sons. It is also, particularly noteworthy that Ninurta and Marduk were “heaven born” (from Nibiru), while Nannar/Sin, Adad (Enlil’s third son), Ningal, Dumuzi, etcetera — and most importantly, Utu and Inanna, were earth born!
The Second Pyramid War was considerably bloodier than the first. Horus chasing Seth out of Lower Egypt was a minor skirmish, comparatively speaking; and involved only some inner family fighting. The second war, however, was an all out conflagration between the two main forces on earth — the Enki and Enlil camps. And while no major god fell casualty to the fighting — in spite of the ferocity of the battles — it was readily apparent that things were quickly getting out of hand. Marduk (Ra), for example, was sealed inside the Great Giza Pyramid, where it was quite likely that the pyramid would become his tomb. Meanwhile Horus had been seriously blinded.
It was time for a a peace conference. This first recorded peace conference on earth was convened by Ninhursag (Ninki), who after healing Horus, decided to intervene to stop the fighting. Keep in mind that Ninhursag was literally the mother of mankind, and she could not help but be distressed by the use of men as cannon-fodder for a war between the gods. It was an early version of the time of knights and peasants, where the knights were armored and rode on horses and engaged in a great sport (seldom if ever getting killed), while the peasants were routinely slaughtered by the better trained and armed, noble knights. It’s the old “Rank has it Privileges” (e.g. staying alive) scenario prevalent today in modern armies. Inasmuch as mankind, comprising the peasants in the days of knights and the grunts in the modern day army, was quite literally the offspring of the mother god. Feudalism then, the same as now.
Enlil considered the sons of Enki, who had brought about the war, an anathema. The fact that Ninurta had launched the initial attacks — supposedly after Seth’s incursion into Canaan — did not dissuade Enlil. Enlil was also furious about certain gods using the Great Pyramid as a combat theater. Enlil thus demanded that both the battling sons and those who used the sacred Great Pyramid to be barred from ever ruling over Giza, or for that matter, over the whole of Lower Egypt. Enki agreed, announcing that the lord of Giza and Lower Egypt would be a young son of his, one who was espoused to one of the female deities born when Enki had made love to Ninhursag. Enki’s young son was then granted the exalted title of NIN.GISH.ZI.DA (“Lord of the Artifact of Life”).
Circa 8,000 B.C.E. is also the first perihelion of Nibiru, following the Flood/Deluge of 11,600 BCE.
c. 4,400 B.C.E. Approximate date for the next perihelion of Nibiru. The perihelion is important because apparently that is the only point in time that the interplanetary travel is possible. It is here that the royal King of Nibiru, Anu, along with his official spouse, Antu, paid a state visit to Earth. A brand-new sacred precinct with a temple-tower had been built in their honor at a place that was later to become the city of Uruk (Biblical Erech).
c. 3,800 B.C.E. Suddenly begins, on this approximate date, the history of mankind!
c. 3760 BCE. Curiously, while the biblical account includes the names of cities such as Kish, Babylon and Uruk, the Sumerian King List asserts that Kingship moved from Kish to Uruk to Ur, omitting any mention of Babylon. This apparent discrepancy seems to be connected to the Tower of Babel debacle, and ultimately to Marduk (first born son of Enki called Ra), who had asserted before the Pyramid Wars that he, Marduk, should possess Sumer’s next capital, instead of Enlil’s son. Marduk was pretty well put in his place by his near-fatal entombment in the Great Pyramid. (They eventually dug him out, leaving the evidence of the rescue attempt still intact today!) But Marduk/Ra is not out just yet.
[Note that the Jewish calendar counts from the start of the calendar by the Anunnaki.[ This particularly identifies Yahweh Enlil with the jews and the fabrications of the jews in the old testament bible making them the ‘chosen people’ of the one and only god, Yahweh-Enlil.
c.3509 BCE. This is the era in which Quetzalcoatl first appeared in Mexico — tall of stature, bright of countenance, bearded, and wearing a long tunic. His staff, shaped like a serpent, was painted black, white, and red [and reminiscent of American Indian mythology of the three races of Man]. The staff was inlaid with precious stones and adorned with six stars. Quetzalcoatl is, of course, Nigishzida on one of his missions abroad and afield to establish the Aztec, Toltec, Hopi, Mayan, Incan, etc. cultures.
c.3,372 B.C.E. The first date in the Quetzalcoatl Mayan calendar:
1. After Marduk/Ra was defeated in the Second Pyramid War, the first born son of Enki went home to sulk. Nimrod stepped in to carry on. But being one of the more egocentric of the Anunnaki, is there any doubt he would return? Of course not. But just how will he manage to become the premier god of Babylon and begin the time-honored activity of history revisionism, e.g. putting himself in the role of the avenging planet in the Sumerian Epic of Creation (the Enuma Elish)?
2. Thoth, known to the Sumerians as Ningishzida and to the Greeks as Hermes, was, apparently, the heir favorite of Enki. Inasmuch as Enki was a master of the art of accomplishing his many nefarious goals through guile, wit, and intelligence; it seems only likely that Thoth would continue the tradition. And he did. Can you imagine which new aliases he would take in coming times and in different places like Meso and North America?
c.800 BCE The date of the next perihelion of Nibiru. This is the date of departure of the creator gods from Earth, as they return to their home planet. Prior to this date, the Council decided to authorize Enki to engineer a more advanced species of humans to take over the rule of the Adamu race, which was considered far too inferior to govern itself. The positions of governance were all previously filled by the gods, and would now be vacated, creating an insurmountable void that would surely lead to the demise of humans. This new species is known as the Homo Capensis, the ‘Blue Bloods’, the Royals, the surrogate gods, or, as I call them – the “dip-shits. The homo capensis were assigned as the rulers of humans in perpetuity. That means until now and beyond. They are also the priests of the Vatican, the Jesuits.
c.2800 CE The next perihelion of the planet of the gods.
The Tower of Babel – But precisely why was the Tower such a problem?
Was this another case of “Behold, the man is become as one of US, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever; Therefore the LORD ENLIL sent him forth from the garden of E-din, to till the ground from whence he was taken.”? [Genesis 3:22-23] What would man have accomplished by completing the tower? Man had to be disbanded again and sent out, scattered to the winds to devolve into a lesser state of consciousness. Completing the ‘Tower’ would have brought the city of Babel “on-line” to the electrical energy grid, a great advance, all accomplished by humans, without the assistance of the gods. This would be way to empowering to suit LORD ENLIL.
“And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar (Sumer); and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach into heaven (sky); and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” — Genesis 11:1-4
The first thing we see is that all people still spoke the same language at this point in history. This would not be unusual considering the fact that at this time the world had just begun to replenish the population after the great judgment of LORD ENLIL at the flood of Noah to allow all to perish. Lord Enlil realizes now that a common language cannot be tolerated because it will lead the humans to cooperation in civic endeavors which will enable them to advance their state beyond that of which he is willing to tolerate. It will also lead to common understanding among men who will not be willing to engage in interhuman wars needed to depopulate the world and maintain the total population of humans at the level he is comfortable with.
The Bible tells us Nimrod “began to be a mighty one in the earth.” (Genesis 10:8). Nimrod is descended from the lineage of Marduk Ra.
The First City
One of the more interesting aspects of the tower tale is the assumption that man was of a primitive understanding at that point in time. This comes from a superficial reading of the bogus texts of modern history, and the presumed implication that the people were foolish enough to think they could actually climb up into heaven by building a tower “whose top may reach unto heaven.” (Genesis 11:4). The fact is, archaeological evidence from this era tells us this early society was already well versed in mathematics, astronomy, commerce, and writing. They never intended to get to ‘heaven’ via the Tower of Babel. They wanted to build a modern city on their own and needed to join the electrical energy grid to accomplish this.
These extremely old Anunnaki tablets tell us the ancient Sumerians learned metallurgy, geography, and even map-making from the Annunaki. They had elaborate beliefs on the things of the spirit, and their records covering cosmology include facts about the planetary alignments in our solar system that weren’t `rediscovered’ until the Voyager space probes of the 1980’s. To put it bluntly, there is a great deal more to the Tower of Babel story than most people are willing to recognize.
We know, for example, the ancient “tower” that is usually referred to as the Tower of Babel was a ziggurat – essentially a `step-pyramid’ that was used as an observatory as well as a component of the power grid. In the excavated ruins of ancient Babylon, this tower is named Etemananki.
The essential idea is that the builders of Babel sought to create an identity or found a government that would provide them with a vehicle that would enable them to develop a dominion that would preclude their being “scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth” (Gen 11:4). In short, the idea was to build a kingdom for their posterity. They sought to bring themselves into a more technologically advanced stage without waiting for and relying on the gods to do it for them.
As previously noted, the prior chapter in Genesis identified the latter day leader of this enterprise as Nimrod. The text goes on to inform the reader that “the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar” (Gen 10:10). Thus, Nimrod was the undisputed head of the government that ultimately built the later Babylon.
When the Bible tells us Nimrod was a great “hunter before the Lord,” the word “before” has many applications that change the way the verse is perceived. Strong’s Concordance tells us “before” can mean “against,” or in “opposition to”. Because we know the LORD ENLIL ultimately intervened against the effort at man-made government that originated at Babel, we can see the context requires we recognize that the text is telling us that `Nimrod was a great leader that opposed the Lord ENLIL.’
[The “Lord” in this connection is the Sumerian god, Enlil, while Enki’s son, Marduk, being partial to Babylon was very clearly a leader/Anunnaki who “opposed the Lord” (i.e., opposed Enlil].
Another factor is that Nimrod’s program involved a hierarchical political structure. Prior to and immediately after the tower episode, we find two crucial examples of LORD ENLIL’s preference for man’s development. In these two cases, we see he selected an organizational structure that was feudal. [It is probably quite accurate “He” chose a feudal organization, provided we understand that the “He” in this connection refers to Enlil – and not to some omnipotent Source Creator. In fact the Sumerian Anunnaki were always feudal in their social structure].
In the first case, we learn that Noah’s associates were all his family members, consisting of his wife, his sons, and their wives. It is self-evident that Noah was the undisputed leader of this feudal structure. Noah is the son of Enki.
Furthermore, in both cases of these examples of the LORD ENLIL’s concept for a people-group, we see that He is the one that chose the figure He would develop into a people. He chose Abraham. The LORD Enlil did not choose Nimrod, and neither were the latter’s subjects his offspring. [If Nimrod and his ancestors are the people of Marduk, son of Enki, then it should be clear that such offspring were not chosen in any way by Enlil].
A good example of this are the famous kings of Assyria, Asshur-banipal and Asshur-nasirpal. While it is theoretically possible the Asshur that was later elevated to deity by the Assyrians was actually the grandson of Noah and a contemporary of Nimrod, the evidence suggests that the two people were actually one and the same. Thus, we identify Nimrod under the Assyrian god-name of Asshur. How Nimrod assumes the identity of the deity named Asshur is of great interest as it provides us with a key understanding in the present account — as well as on the larger scale of interpretation of contemporary events.
When the tower was being built under the guidance of Nimrod in order to build a system that would unify all the people under the government of his kingship, the LORD ENLIL intervened. Genesis tells us: “And the Lord ENLIL said, Behold, the people are one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
“So the Lord Enlil scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord Enlil did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord Enlil scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” (Genesis 11:6-9)
This verse is very revealing for it tells us Enlil recognized that the hierarchical structure that had emerged in the government of King Nimrod would be able to accomplish whatever the leader so desired. Furthermore, not only was the government of Nimrod/Asshur in direct opposition to the LORD ENLIL’s plan for the family unit, the dominion of the king Nimrod had a spiritual dimension (not to be confused with religious) as well which also enhanced his authority.
What is truly fascinating is what Enlil actually accomplished with the scattering the languages. This one event caused the most profound change since the flood itself; and in the process of recognizing what actually happened, we can gain a significant understanding of the entire panorama of religion.
Ironically, the scattering of the languages also set the pattern as to how the nations would eventually develop – to say nothing of the divergent religious beliefs that ultimately emerged due to and following the departure of the creator gods, the father-figures of humans. The truth of this matter is strikingly simple. In fact, the earlier question of how Nimrod became Asshur is the key to why all nations have so many divergent god names that may be traced back to the same original source. Nimrod became Asshur simply because Asshur was the word assigned to Nimrod that was used in the language of one of the earliest family groups that became powerful after the languages were scattered (the Assyrians). Divergent god-names led to eventual religious wars and splinter sects.
It has been known for many years these diverse religious god-names have distinct similarities, attributes, and historical parallels. For instance, in the Greek language, the name for Nimrod was Nebrod – which means “mighty hunter.” A related word, Nebros, means the spotted fawn. This was the symbol for Bacchus – a Grecian version of Nimrod.
A similar linguistic trail exists when tracking the name of Nimrod’s mother (and wife) Semiramus. She shows up as Cybele, Rhea, Baalti, Minerva, Diana (the huntress), Athena, Hera, Venus, Ashtaroth, Astarte, Ishtar, etc. Significantly, as in the case with Nimrod, there is always a connection with the stars.
The Solar System In The Sides Of The North
Here we come to the missing component in the tale of the tower. Because the truth of the story of what really happened just before and just after the flood of Noah has been obfuscated by the confusing of the languages – to say nothing of the `washing away’ of the evidentiary record because of the overwhelming devastation of the flood itself – few understand what is at the root of the history of religion.
Prior to the flood, a planetary body in our solar system provided the requisite energy and light that was necessary to completely balance Earth’s biosphere
Shining brightly on a continuous basis, this planet provided just the right amount of light and warmth that complemented and perfected the radiant activity of the sun. Linguistic research on the origins of the god-names tells us it was the planet we know as Saturn.
After the flood, the descendants of Noah quickly learned that Saturn was missing. Although Saturn could still be located by the ancient priests, the evidence suggests that its ability to provide energy was substantially diminished – its location was moved to a more distant orbital path.
[The evidence for this view is given by Immanuel Velikovsky ]
There are even more fascinating aspects to the LORD ENLIL’s intervention at Babylon. First, the great concern that the Babel builders originally had concerning being scattered became the very judgment that Enlil brought upon them. Enlil chooses the form of judgment that is inflicted upon man. Because the pursuit of building a world apart from him under the first figure of LORD LUCIFER displeased the LORD ENLIL so much, He brought upon the people the very thing they feared most – being “scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth” (Genesis 11:4).
Second, the passage shows us that the intertwining unity of spiritual and political purpose was the factor that cast off the prior restraint that had kept the world from establishing the global order of man with the spirit of LUCIFER-ENKI as its guiding power.
In Genesis at the apex of Nimrod’s spiritual and political power, Enlil says “now nothing will be restrained from them…” (Genesis 11:6).
This is a significant indicator that it is the initiative and the effort of man, working in unity as the world becomes more and more indwelled by the spirit of LORD ENKI, that brings about the removal of the restraint of Enlil.
Finally, once the restrainer is removed, Enlil says that unless He intervenes, man will be able to accomplish anything “which they have imagined to do.” (Genesis 11:6).
Why is this a problem for Enlil, who always feared and hated humans?
The answer is obvious.
