Before the First Day








     Long ago, but not far away, relatively speaking, there was our sun, and there were our other planets of our solar system, but the planet we now call earth looked much different than it does now, and the moon that we are so familiar with was smaller and perhaps closer to our "Mother", whose name, the ancient scribes report, was Tiamat.

      Tiamat was attacked by a moon or moons of another rogue planet wandering through space from another solar system and because of this incredibly violent attack, Tiamat was chopped into many, many pieces, the largest piece of which became our moon.   A lot of little pieces of the planet that was our "Mother" are still out there in space scattered over a vast area between the planet Mars and Saturn as what we now call the "Asteroid Belt".  A photograph of the "Asteroid Belt" is shown below.

     The "Asteroid Belt" is  spoken of in the Bible, but not in a very clear and scientific way. Believe it or not, "Tiamat" the "Mother" of our present earth, is in the Bible, under the name of "Rahab".   There are two "Rahabs".   One a harlot who helped Israel's spies in Jericho.  The other is the  Jewish scribes' name for Tiamat, the planet that was here before earth was created in a "Cosmic Collision".

       Other constellations outside our solar system are also mentioned in the Bible, and include the following.   The Pleides (Job 9:9; 38:31).  Also the Pleides (but unnamed) (Rev. 2:1 )  And Orion (Job 9:9 ). Arcturus is a bright star (sun) outside our solar system (Job 9:9) Two planets of our solar system are clearly mentioned.   Venus (as the "morning star" (Rev. 2:28; 22:16 )   And  Saturn (by description) (Rev. 14:14-16).

      Tiamat (our mother planet),  named Rahab in the Bible, and indeed the history of the formation of the "Asteroid Belt" also, is recorded in Psalms  89:10  "Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou has scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm."       And in Isaiah 51:9 "Awake, awake, put on thy strength, O arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old.  Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon?"

    The picture above was made by rolling a cylinder seal made of a hard stone, possibly a gem stone, upon soft clay, which may then be baked after something else was written on the same clay tablet, usually in cuneiform writing that looked like this:

      Some scholars, such as Zechariah Sitchin, can read this cuneiform writing and interpret the pictures such as the one above, and discover a lot of the details only briefly and vaguely alluded to in Psalms 89:10 and Isaiah 51:9.

      The original Sumerian and Akkadian versions of this story, the  story of the creation of earth and the "Asteroid Belt" from Tiamat, is called Eluma Elish in the Babylonian dialect of  Akkadian.   There can be  no reasonable doubt that it is the same story in all four versions, the Bible versions being a short summary of the older, more complete versions.

    The original version was maintained on Nibiru, the rogue wandering planet whose course and eternal "destiny" was changed by this collision.   It is very old, older than 445,000 years.

    The copies of this story were dictated to Sumerian scribes perhaps 6000 years ago, or before.

     The Akkadian version was copied by scribes who could read and write both Sumerian and Akkadian at some time generations and perhaps centuries after the Sumerian copies.

     There's no way of knowing when Psalms 89 was composed, but current  scholars presume it was after the Persian occupation of Northern Israel about 700 BC.   Isaiah was being edited and added to a long time after the death of the prophet Isaiah so the Isaiah version of this story may date to as late as perhaps 100 BC.

     As for the Genesis 1 and 2:1-3 version of the creation of the earth, this is too complex a subject to deal with on this first page, but we will indeed deal with it in this series.

      It's interesting to note that there's absolutely nothing wrong or untrue about Genesis 1:1 except that it's far too short and extremely incomplete.   Allowing later writers too much latitude to elaborate onto this true beginning additions that may be symbolically "true" but can and are interpreted in ways that delude and deceive.

     Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heaven (Nibiru), and the earth (from Tiamat).  2 "And the earth (Tiamat) was without form (irregular) and void (had a wound, a hole in it); and darkness was upon the face of the deep (1. deep space, vast expanses of the universe (and, or) 2. Deep waters covering much of the earth, including the hole in that part of Tiamat that suffered the "Cosmic Collision")

        It is my goal in this series of pages not to prove the Bible

      "wrong" but to fill in some details that the Bible's authors

        left out because they judged them unsuitable for those

        they saw as their target

        congregation or audience  --

        and to re-interpret some symbolism and parables for

        a more modern and better educated group of readers.
