The Legend of Adapa

The Tablet Of Adapa
Adapa – The First Man

translated by Stephanie Dalley

He (Enki) made broad understanding perfect in him (Adapa), To disclose the design of the land.

To him he gave wisdom, but did not give eternal life. At that time, in those years, he was a sage, son of Eridu.

Enki created him as a protecting spirit among mankind.

A sage – nobody rejects his word – Clever, extra-wise, he was one of the Anunnaki, Holy, pure of hands, the pashishu-priest who always tends the rites.

He does baking with the bakers of Eridu, He does the food and water of Eridu every day, Sets up the offerings table with his pure hands, Without him no offerings table is cleared away.

He takes the boat out and does the fishing for Eridu.

At that time Adapa, the son of Eridu, When he had got the leader Enki out of bed, Used to ‘feed’ the bolt of Eridu every day.

At the holy Kar-usakar he embarked in a sailing-boat And without a rudder his boat would drift, Without a steering-pole he would take his boat out into the broad sea.

South Wind Send him to live in the fishes’ home.

“South Wind, though you send your brothers against me, However many there are, I shall break your wing!”

No sooner had he uttered these words than South Wind’s wing was broken; For seven days South Wind did not blow towards the land.

An called out to his vizier Ilabrat, “Why hasn’t the south wind blown towards the land for seven days” His vizier Ilabrat answered him, “My lord, Adapa, the son of Enki has broken South Wind’s wing.”

When An heard this word, He cried “Heaven help him!”, rose up from his throne. “Send for him to be brought here!”

Enki, aware of Heaven’s ways, touched him And made him wear his hair unkempt, Clothed him in mourning garb, Gave him instructions, “Adapa, you are to go before king An.

You will go up to Heaven, And when you go up to Heaven, When you approach the gate of An, Dumuzi and Gizzida will be standing in the Gate of An, Will see you, will keep asking you questions, “Young man, on whose behalf do you wear mourning garb?” You must answer: “Two gods have vanished from our country, And that is why I am behaving like this.” They will ask: “Who are the two gods that have vanished from the countryside?” You will answer: “They are Dumuzi and Gizzida.” “They will look at each other and laugh a lot, Will speak a word in your favor to Anu, Will present you to An in a good mood.

When you stand before An They will hold out for you bread of death, so you must not eat.

They will hold out for you water of death, so you must not drink.

They will hold out a garment for you; so put it on.

They will hold out oil for you; so anoint yourself.

You must not neglect the instructions I have given you; Keep to the words that I have told you.”

The envoy of An arrived.

“Send to me Adapa, Who broke the South Wind’s wing.”

He made him take the way of heaven.

When he came up to heaven, When he approached the Gate of An, Dumuzi and Gizzida were standing in the Gate of An.

They saw Adapa and cried, “Heaven help him! Young man, on whose behalf do you look like this Adapa, on whose behalf do you wear mourning clothes? “Two gods have vanished from the country, and that is why I am wearing mourning clothes.”

“Who are the two gods who have vanished from the country” ” Dumuzi and Gizzida,” Adapa answered. They looked at each other and laughed a lot.

When Adapa drew near to the presence of King An, An saw him and shouted, “Come here, Adapa! Why did you break South Wind’s wind”

Adapa answered An, “My lord, I was catching fish in the middle of the sea, For the house of my lord Enki.

But he inflated the sea into a storm And south wind blew and sank me! I was forced to take up residence in the fishes’ home. In my fury, I cursed South Wind.”

Dumuzi and Gizzida responded from beside him, Spoke a word in his favor to An. His heart was appeased he grew quiet.

“Why did Enki disclose to wretched mankind The ways of heaven and earth, Give them a heavy heart It was he who did it! What can we do for him.

Fetch him the bread of eternal life and let him eat!”

They fetched him the bread of eternal life, but he would not eat.

They fetched him the water of eternal life, but he would not drink.

They fetched him a garment, and he put it on himself.

They fetched him oil, and he anointed himself.

An watched him and laughed at him.

“Come Adapa, why didn’t you eat? Why didn’t you drink?” Didn’t you want to be immortal? Alas for downtrodden people!”

“But Enki my lord told me: “You mustn’t eat! You mustn’t drink!”‘

Take him and send him back to his earth.

Coast to Coast AM: Zecharia Sitchin’s Appearances

George Noory, of Coast to Coast AM

George Noory, of Coast to Coast AM

Zecharia Sitchin: An eminent Orientalist and Biblical scholar, Zecharia Sitchin is distinguished by his ability to read ancient Sumerian clay tablets and other ancient texts. Through such texts, religious documents and archaeological findings, he reconstructs epic events that support the existence of extraterrestrial “gods” who once set nation against nation, and man against man. He is a graduate of the University of London and worked as a journalist and editor in Israel for many years. He now lives and writes in New York.

Coast to Coast AM appearances:

Dearly Departed Special
Thursday August 1, 2013
For over 20 years, Coast to Coast AM has been host to some of the most brave, innovative and informed experts. In separate half-hour segments, George played and commented on six different interviews from former guests in the C2C family that are no longer with us, yet whose legacies and ideas live on. We heard an interview with renowned scholar Zecharia Sitchin who recounted his theory of ancient ET visitors from the planet Nibiru during the 2/1/10 show. Sitchin died later in 2010 at the age of 90.
Host: George Noory

UFO History
Monday February 1, 2010
Appearing during the first half of the 4th hour, renowned scholar Zecharia Sitchin recounted his theory of ancient ET visitors, and talked about his forthcoming book which compares his work to biblical tales. He said he was pleased with the mainstream coverage he received in a recent New York Times profile. George Noory will be paying tribute to Sitchin as he receives a Lifetime Achievement Award at the upcoming Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles.
Host: George Noory

UFOs & ETs
Monday May 11, 2009
Making a rare appearance on the show, first hour guest, noted scholar Zecharia Sitchin talked about his latest endeavor, The Earth Chronicles Handbook, which he called a “GPS” to his earlier seven book series. The new guidebook serves as an encyclopedic compendium of the myths and actual events from humanity’s ancient civilizations such as the Sumerians. He said there is evidence that the Anunnaki (visitors from the planet Nibiru which has an elliptical orbit in our solar system) left Earth in 550 BC but promised to return. Sitchin also claimed that astronomers had seen Nibiru but hushed up the information.
Host: George Noory

Crop Circles & Sitchin
Thursday December 22, 2005
In the first hour, Sumerian scholar Zecharia Sitchin joined Hilly. It’s been 30 years since Sitchin’s influential book The 12th Planet was first published, outlining his thesis that a race known as the Anunnaki descended to Earth from their planet, Nibiru, which comes into the inner solar system every 3,600 years. He announced that he is working on a new book that will be as significant as The 12th Planet and will deal with “touchy subjects.” Sitchin said he believes the Anunnaki will revisit our planet “in some people’s lifetimes.” He also commented that recent pictures of Mars taken by the Spirit Rover show artificial structures such as walls and towers, which he suggested could have been constructed by the Anunnaki.
Host: Hilly Rose

Cashless Society
Wednesday January 5, 2005
Mars Structures: In the last hour, Hilly interviewed author and scholar Zecharia Sitchin about archeological artifacts on Mars. Sitchin believes Mars was inhabited for thousands of years by “others like us,” and served as a way station between Earth and the planet of the Anunnaki. He claims pictorial depictions on ancient cylinder seals show an astronaut on Mars greeting an astronaut on Earth. He also discussed stories from his newest book, The Earth Chronicles Expeditions.

Dr. R.S. Harrington: The Location of Planet X

Astronomical Journal
Volume 96, Number 4

THE LOCATION OF PLANET X

R.S. Harrington
U.S. Naval Observatory, Washington, DC 20392
Received 17 May 1988; revised 12 July 1988

ABSTRACT

Dr. R.S. Harrington

Dr. R.S. Harrington

Planet X, if it exists at all, is most likely to be found, at present, in the region of Scorpius, with a considerably lesser likelihood that it is in Taurus.

In 1930, Tombaugh found the planet Pluto. This was the result of a systematic search initiated at Lowell Observatory as the result of predictions made by Lowell as to the positions and nature of a supposed additional planet in our solar system. At the time, Pluto was hailed as the object of that prediction, even though there were anomalies in its appearance and orbit evident right from the time of its discovery. Since then, these problems have only become more serious, and the discovery of its satellite in 1978 revealed a mass of Pluto that could not have caused any of the perturbations in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune used to predict the existence of a ninth planet. For a complete review of the discovery of Pluto and the developments leading up to the suspicion of the existence of a tenth planet, see Seidelmann and Harrington (1988).

“Encountering the Divine” Interview with Zecharia Sitchin

Zecharia Sitchin

Zecharia Sitchin

World Conference of Planetary Violence in Human History, January 3-5, 1997. Interview conducted by Jordan Maxwell.

Maxwell: It is an honor to be here in your company Mr. Sitchin. For many years I’ve enjoyed following your work in the field of ancient theology. My first question is about the word Yahweh, one of the names of God in Hebrew. Is it a proper name or is Yahweh, in Hebrew, describing something?

Sitchin: It is a descriptive term. It is not a proper name.

Maxwell: That is what I thought. Could you explain exactly what it is describing?

Sitchin: It is usually translated “I am who I am” — something like that. More accurately the tense, which in Hebrew it says Ehyeh-Asher-Ehyeh, is a future tense. Therefore it means “I will be whoever I will be,” in context of the whole biblical tale and with a throwback to the Sumerian information that I provide in my books. It really means “I can be whoever I choose to be.”

The Myth of the Megalith

Baalbek, "The Myth of the Megalith."

Baalbek, “The Myth of the Megalith.”

Baalbek, Lebanon, is the site of one of the most mysterious ruins of the Roman Empire, a monumental two-thousand-year-old temple to Jupiter that sits atop three thousand-ton stone blocks. (The pillars of Stonehenge weigh about a fortieth of that.) The blocks originated in a nearby limestone quarry, where a team from the German Archaeological Institute, in partnership with Jeanine Abdul Massih, of Lebanese University, recently discovered what they are calling the largest stone block from antiquity, weighing one thousand six hundred and fifty tons and matching those that support the temple. Its provenance is more shadowy than one might expect of a three-million-pound megalith. Nobody seems to know on whose orders it was cut, or why, or how it came to be abandoned. (By Elif Batuman)

Baalbek – Lebanon’s Sacred Fortress

Andrew Collins, investigates one of the world’s greatest enigmas – the Great Platform at Baalbek in Lebanon and uncovers its links with giants, Titans and a previously unknown culture.

Massive foundation stones of Baalbek.

Massive foundation stones of Baalbek.

In the recent past the tranquility of the Beqa’a Valley, that runs north-south between the Lebanon and Ante-Lebanon mountain ranges, has been regularly shattered by the screeching noise of Israeli jet fighters. Their targets are usually the Hizbullah training camps, mostly for reconnaissance purposes, but occasionally to drop bombs on the local inhabitants. It is a sign of the times in the troubled Middle East.

Yet the Beqa’a Valley is also famous for quite another reason. Elevated above the lazy town of Baalbek is one of architecture’s greatest achievements. I refer to the almighty Temple of Jupiter, situated besides two smaller temples, one dedicated to Venus, the goddess of love, and the other dedicated to Bacchus, the god of fertility and good cheer (although some argue this temple was dedicated to Mercury, the winged god of communication).

Today these wonders of the classical world remain as impressive ruins scattered across a wide area, but more remarkable still is the gigantic stone podiums within which these structures stand. An outer podium wall, popularly known as the ‘Great Platform’, is seen by scholars as contemporary to the Roman temples. Yet incorporated into one of its courses are the three largest building blocks ever used in a man-made structure. Each one weighs an estimated 1000 tonnes a piece.(1) They sit side-by-side on the fifth level of a truly cyclopean wall located beyond the western limits of the Temple of Jupiter.
