Important Messages About Humanity/Civilizations from a High-Ranking Shaman | Credo Mutwa

Incredible information from a respected Spiritual Leader.

Searching for the truth is a difficult endeavor. Especially when deception and manipulation seems to run rampant in regards to our way of life, our history, even humanity’s very existence.

Why will I not accept simply living my life to the best of my ability, and largely only caring about my family, friends, my own work, monetary situations, hobbies, etc.?

Because I largely suspect that this is what got us into this apathetic situation to begin with. We have lost sight of what really matters. Yes, family and friends are important. But why should our care and compassion stop at them? Shouldn’t we be caring about THE WHOLE WORLD?

This whole excuse that you can only do so much and you only have one life to live so you might as well make the most of it by having as much fun and living it up as much as possible doesn’t sit right with me. It’s a smokescreen to get us to ignore important situations that occur all across the planet. And I am not okay with it. I think we need to go back to our roots, go back to looking within ourselves, and go back to our compassionate nature.

After digging around for information into our origin and how we used to live, I came across this very insightful interview with who was considered the most highest-ranking shaman in the world at the time: Credo Mutwa.

I am not saying that everything he is saying is true. But I am saying that what he’s recounting deserves reflection and an open mind into what may be possible. Our refusal to believe a particular narrative may have been our downfall all along. But what if we suspended our disbelief, and took this man’s words at heart, and really look at the theory presented to us?

What’s the worst that can happen? That it’s not true and we just made a fool of ourselves? Or that IT IS TRUE, and we need to do a complete 180 in our way of thinking, and come to terms with how we’ve been living our lives? And who we’ve been living our lives with?

I, for one, don’t care if I end up making a fool of myself. If it involves me bettering myself and my understanding of the world and why there’s so much strife and division, I am willing to take that chance. It is better than marching into this dystopian lifestyle that I see looming before us. If humanity can, as a collective whole, raise our consciousness and awareness into who we really are and our capabilities, and start resisting this demiurge that has been dictating and trying to control our emotions and state of being, then the world can be a beautiful, benevolent place.

Credo Mutwa, in an incredibly heartfelt interview, is pleading with the world to open their eyes, heart and mind into considering an alternative account; one that, unfortunately, many scorn and laugh at.

The following are some key points that I have highlighted from his interview. The whole interview is fascinating and definitely worth checking out in full, but wanted to focus on these particular mentions.

Credo Mutwa (Important Insights):

(All quotes are from Credo Mutwa, unless otherwise stated.)

Peaceful, spiritual life in the beginning

“The world was thickly covered with great forests, great jungles, and people lived in peace on Earth at that time. People were happy and it is said, at that time, we human beings did not have the power of speech. We only made funny sounds like happy monkeys and baboons, but we did not have speech as we now have it. And in those centuries, people spoke to each other through their mind.

A man could call his wife thinking about her, thinking about the shape of her face, the smell of her body, and the feel of hair as a woman. That a hunter would go out into the bush and call out for animals to come, and the animals would select one of their number which was old and tired, and this animal would offer itself to the hunter so that he may kill it quickly and take it as meat to his cave.

There was no violence against animals. There was no violence against Nature by human beings at that time. Man used to ask for food from Nature. He used to come to a tree and think about fruit, and the tree would allow some of its fruit to fall to the ground, and man would take it.”

Who is dictating our lives behind the scenes?

“This name is Chitauli [Chitauri]. Now, the word Chitauli means “the dictators, the ones who tell us the law”. In other words, “they who tell us, secretly, what we are to do”. Now, it is said that these Chitauli did a number of things to us when they came to this planet.”

“And the Chitauli told human beings, whom they gathered together by force with whips of lightning, that they were great gods from the sky and that from now on they would receive a number of great gifts from the god.”

“These creatures then took away the great powers that human beings had:

– the power of speaking through the mind only
– the power of moving objects with their mind only
– the power of seeing into the future and into their past
– the power to travel, spiritually, to different worlds

All of these great powers the Chitauli took away from human beings and they gave human beings a new power, now, the power of speech.

But, human beings found, to their horror, that the power of speech divided human beings, instead of uniting them, because the Chitauli cunningly created different languages, and they caused a great quarrel between people.

Also, the Chitauli did something which has never been done before: they gave human beings people to rule over them, and they said, “These are your kings, these are your chiefs. They have our blood in them. They are our children, and you must listen to these people because they will speak on our behalf. If you don’t, we are going punish you very terribly.”

Before the coming of the Chitauli, before the coming of the Imbulu creatures, human beings were spiritually one.

But when the Chitauli came, human beings became divided, both spiritually as well as by language.

– And then, human beings were given strange new feelings by the Chitauli. Human beings started to feel unsafe…
– Human beings became ambitious and greedy and they wanted to acquire wealth…
– And, another thing the Chitauli forced human beings to do, they forced human beings to mine into the Earth.”

Several tribes describe similar creatures:

“Throughout South Africa, amongst many tribes, you’ll find stories of these amazing creatures who are capable of changing from reptile to human being, and from reptile to any other animal of their choice. And these creatures, sir, do really exist. No matter where you go throughout Southern, Eastern, Western, and Central Africa, you’ll find that the description of these creatures is the same.

Even amongst tribes which never, throughout their long history, had contact with each other at all.

So, there ARE such creatures. Where they come from, I will never claim to know, sir. But they are associated with certain stars in the sky, and one of these stars is a large group of stars which is part of the Milky Way, which our people call Ingiyab, which means “The Great Serpent”. And there is a red star, a reddish star, near the tip of this huge rim of stars which our people call IsoneNkanyamba.

Now, this star called IsoneNkanyamba, I managed to find its English name. It is the star called Alpha Centauri, in English. Now, this, sir, is something that is worth investigating. Why is it that well over 500 tribes in parts of Africa which I’ve visited in the last 40 or 50 years or so, all of them describe similar creatures?”

What do the creatures feed on?:

“They hide in deep cavities underground, because they are always feeling cold. In these cavities, we are told, there are huge fires which are kept going by slaves, human, zombie-like slaves. And, it is further said that these Zuswazi, these Imbulu, or whatever you choose to call them, are not capable of eating solid food.

They either eat human blood, or they eat that power, the energy that is generated when human beings, on the surface of the Earth, are fighting and killing each other in large numbers.

I met people who have fled from the early Masaki in Rwanda, from years ago, and these people were horrified by what was happening in their country. They said that the slaughter of the Hutus by the Watusi, and the Watusi by the Hutus, is actually feeding the Imanujela, monsters.

Because the Imanujela like to inhale the energy that is generated by masses of people being terrified or being killed by other people.”

Terrible ritualistic sacrifice to “cure” a sick Chitauli:

“- one of the things that the Chitauli like to do in their underground caves, where many fires are always kept ablaze, we are told, is that when a Chitauli gets sick and starts to lose a large area of skin on his body, it is said that there is a disease that the Chitauli suffer from which causes them to lose large areas of their skin, leaving only raw flesh.

When the Chitauli gets sick this way, a young girl, a virgin, is usually kidnapped by the servant of the Chitauli and is brought to the underground place. There the girl is bound, hand and foot, and wrapped in a golden blanket, and is forced to lie next to the Chitauli, the sick Chitauli, week after week, being well fed and well cared for, but kept bound hand and foot, and only released at certain times to relieve herself.

It is said that after the sick Chitauli shows signs of getting better, then the human girl is manipulated into trying to escape. She is given a chance to escape, a chance which is really not a chance.

Then, when the girl escapes, she runs, but she is pursued over a long distance underground by flying creatures which are made of metal, and she is recaptured when she reaches the height of fear and exhaustion.

Then she is laid on an altar, usually a rough rock, flat on top. Then, she is cruelly sacrificed, sir, and her blood is drunk by the sick Chitauli, which then recovers. But, the girl must not be sacrificed until she is very, very, very frightened, because if she is not frightened, it is said that her blood will not save the sick Chitauli. It must be the blood of a very frightened human being, indeed.”

Our planet becoming a wasteland:

“Now, sir, another thing that the Chitauli told our people, it is said, is that we human beings are here on Earth to change the Earth and to make it suitable for “God” to come down one day and dwell in it. And it is said that they who work to change this Earth and make it safe for the serpent god, the Chitauli, to come and dwell in it, will be rewarded with great power and with great wealth.

Sir, as I have watched over many years of study, over many years of initiation of the mysteries of African shamanism, wisdom, and knowledge, I have found myself wondering why we human beings are actually destroying the Earth on which we live.”

“We are doing something which is only done by one other species of animal, namely, the African elephant, which utterly destroys every tree in the place in which it dwells.

We human beings are doing exactly this. And wherever you go in Africa, where once there were great ancient civilizations, you find desert.

For example, there is the Kalahari desert in South Africa, and under the sands of that desert, I have found the ruins of ancient cities, which means that human beings turned this stretch of land, which was once green and fertile, into a desert.

And, in days when I was with explorers and safari people in the Sahara regions of Africa, I also found evidence of unbelievably ancient human habitation in places where there is nothing now but angry rock and whispering sand.

In other words, the Sahara Desert was once a fertile country and was turned into a desert by human beings. Why? I must ask myself, again and again, why are human beings being driven by insecurity, greed, and lust of power to turn the Earth into a desert in which, ultimately, no human being would ever be able to live? Why?

Although we are all aware of the terrible dangers that this will bring about, why are we cutting huge areas of jungle in Africa? Why are we on Earth carrying out the instructions which the Chitauli programmed into us?”

Being programmed to march into our own destruction:

“One other thing that our people say is that the Chitauli prey upon us like vultures. They raise some of us, they fill some of us with great anger and great ambition, and they make these people they’ve raised into great warriors who make terrible war. But, in the end, the Chitauli do not allow these great leaders, these great war chiefs and kings, to die peacefully.

The warrior chief is used to make as much war as possible, to kill as many of his people, and those he calls enemies, as possible, and then, in the end, the warrior chief dies a terrible death – “

“- there is a certain power that is guiding we human beings toward the dark river of self-destruction.

And the sooner many of us become aware of this, the better, perhaps, we might be able to deal with it.”

“There ARE such creatures, and the sooner skeptics amongst us face up to this fact, the better it shall be. Why is human-kind not progressing? Why are we running around in a great circle of self-destruction and mutual-destruction?”

Depopulation / extermination of Africa:

“But, why is Africa drowning in war, in disease, and in hunger? Why?

Many times, sir, I sit in my hut and I cry when I see diseases like AIDS destroying us; when I see senseless wars destroying those countries in Africa which had thrived for thousands of years.

Say, Ethiopia is a country that has been free for thousands of years. Ethiopia was once the school of all of Africa. Nigeria was once a great country with a long tradition of self-government – long, long before the White man came to Africa. But today, all of these countries and many others are being destroyed.

Today, sir, there are parts of Africa which have been totally depopulated by war and by the disease called AIDS, a disease which shows every sign of being a man-made disease. I ask myself, “Who or what is destroying Africa, and why?”

Because there are tribes in those villages I lived in, who assisted my search for knowledge, before the Second World War and after. But today these tribes no longer exist anymore. They are gone, dispersed, totally exterminated in senseless wars that gain the Black people nothing.

I am in South Africa now. Here I was born, and here I was to die. But I see my country falling apart like a rotting mango. South Africa was once a powerful country. She had a powerful army. She had huge industries, which were producing everything from locomotives to little radios. But today my country has become a drug-sodden, crime-ridden piece of rubbish. Why? A country doesn’t get destroyed almost overnight, unless there are definite forces which are determined to obliterate it.”

Division created within each other:

“There are wars which take place in Africa, where after an African country has gained its independence from the colonial power, then a force of rebels pick up weapons against that country’s government, but instead of the rebels fighting the government to the bitter end, what happens again and again is that the rebel forces split into various groups which end up fighting not only the government in power, but also each other.

And the result is that, in several African countries, the country is so destroyed that, no matter which party wins, the people lose.

The United Nations are caused to be called in, in order to create some semblance of peace. In other words, Africans have now started fighting wars which bring about not victory, but the destruction of themselves, as well as their people.”

Rick Martin: “Now, it’s been said – I’ve heard that these beings are very controlling and they thrive on “divide and conquer”.

Credo Mutwa: “Yes, they do, sir. They set human being against human being. I could give you many amusing examples, using some African language, how the Chitauli are said to have divided human beings.

They like – do you know who they like, sir? They like religious fanatics.”

Credo Sutwa’s heart-wrenching plea to America:

“Because, sir, genocide, worse than anything that Hitler ever committed upon the Jewish people, is taking place in Africa NOW, and the people of America don’t seem to care a damn. Why? We are the best friends that the United States has got. We are the best people. We buy American products.

Our children want to look like American children. Our kids wear jeans, sir, and they even speak with American accents, because you American people are our role model. Why are you allowing us to be slaughtered? Why? Why?”

“I am asking the people of the United States of America, I am asking my Black brothers and my Black sisters over there, why are you allowing the country which is your mother to be exterminated?”

Who humanity is at the core:

“People are basically good; I believe this. People don’t want to start wars. People don’t want to destroy the world in which they stay, but there are creatures, or there is power that is driving we human beings toward self-annihilation. And the sooner we recognize this, the better.”

“Look, please, sir. Anyone who studies humanity with love, with understanding, and with care, recognizes the fact that there is a shining God which is struggling to be born within each and every one of us. We are trying to fight back, although many of us are not yet aware of this. We are developing an attitude of wanting to protect our planet, no matter who or what we are.

There are chiefs in Africa who fine you very heavily if they see you destroying a tree unnecessarily. This thing was common in the past, but it disappeared with the coming of the White people; but now it has come back again.

Man is becoming, is struggling to become a more advanced, more caring being, and the aliens are not going to take this lying down. They are going to cause us to kill each other, again. And I am worried about what is going to happen.”

“Today a big-game hunter is no longer looked upon as a hero, but rather as a murderer. Today there are men and women, Black and White, who are prepared to risk their lives to save trees, to save animals, and to stop the insanity of testing nuclear weapons.

Sir, what does this tell you? It tells you that, after many thousands of years of being dominated by alien creatures, human beings are starting to fight back. Human beings are starting to care about the world in which they live and in which they find themselves.”

Calls for investigations into these different beings:

“One day I hope to share more of this information with your readers, but my appeal, again, is this: Please investigate! Please, let us investigate! Let us stop being too skeptical. Excessive skepticism is just as dangerous and as evil as gullibility.”

“We must investigate, sir, because there is every sign that the alien creatures sharing this planet with us are getting desperate. Why? Because, you see, there is a great fight shaping up, and anyone who thinks deeply about such things can see this fight coming.”

Reference to Jabulon [Jahbulon] and freemasons:

“Jabulon, sir, is a very strange god. He is supposed to be the leader of the Chitauli. He is a god, to my great surprise, which I find certain groups of White people, especially, worshipping.

We have known about Jabulon for many, many centuries, we Black people. But I am surprised that there are White people who worship this god, and these people, amongst them are people whom many have blamed for all the things that have happened on this Earth, namely, the Freemason people.

We believe that Jabulon is the leader of the Chitauli. He is the Old One.”

Rick Martin: “It would seem that this Jabulon would be the equivalent of what, in the West, we call Satan. Would you say that?”

Credo Mutwa: “I think so, yes, sir. He is the chief of the Chitauli. And, like Satan, he lives in a house underground where great fires are always lighted, to keep him warm.

Because, we are told, that after the great war they fought with God, they became cold in their blood and they cannot stand freezing weather, which is why they require human blood, and also they require fire always to be kept working where they are.”

Message of Hope | Spiritual awakening:

Rick Martin: “Well, it is said, and I believe this to be true, that there is a – for lack of a better way of putting it – there is a war between Light and Dark, Good and Evil, on this planet.”

Credo Mutwa: “Yes. Yes, sir. Yes, sir. Yes.”

Rick Martin: “And there certainly is a God in His Universe, a God of Light and Justness.”

Credo Mutwa: “Yes, sir.”

” – there IS hope! Look, first of all, there IS a God above us. And this God is more real than most of us believe.

God is not a figment of someone’s imagination. God is not something dreamt-up by old men and old women in prehistoric times. God exists, sir. But standing between us and God are creatures who claim to be gods.”

“Sir, I have lived a long and very strange life, and I can tell you that there is a God, and He is intervening. However, we see God’s intervening as slow, but wait: Who would have thought that less than 30 years ago, not one person cared about the environment. Who put this sudden Godliness within all of us?

Today, sir, people everywhere in the world are standing up and fighting for the rights of women and for the rights of children. Who has put these ideas into our minds? Not the Chitauli, not any demonic entity, it is God acting in the shadow and making us strong -“

“And it is God, sir, who, for the first time in our existence, is making us aware of these things, making us aware that on this world we are not alone, and that we must be soul-ly and solely responsible for our actions, and we must neutralize these alien beings who for years have led us around in circles.”

“There is hope, and the hope is very bright. A Christ-child is being born in all of us, but like all deaths, the death of the Light-child (the death of the old-self prior to transformation into “Christness”) is going to be attended by great danger, as the enemy is going to be driven into desperation. The enemy will make mistakes and we will conquer him in God’s sacred name.

That is what I believe, sir, and that is what I’m going to hold-on believing until my last breath.”

Stop the censorship / stop the ridicule | Seek The Truth:

Credo Mutwa: “We will overcome, we will overcome, but skeptics must stop laughing, and fools must stop calling these aliens, god. There is only ONE God, and He or She or It is the One who created us, and not some impostor who came from somewhere else to hide behind us and to drink our children’s blood. Amen, sir.”

Rick Martin: “Yes, absolutely right. Credo, please know that I deeply appreciate what you have done and the courage of just speaking frankly. It’s past time to hold onto these things, and it’s time to just speak The Truth. And for those who don’t believe or even consider possibilities, well, it’s just too bad.”

Credo Martin: “Exactly, and also to confront people with the fact that there is no reason to fear anything.

If we go from a perspective of making information available that should be available to every single person on this blooming planet, why the hell are they trying to threaten you to keep quiet? If it’s so ridiculous, let it be. Stop assassinating and ridiculing and destroying people by churning-up fear.

This is the perspective I come from, and I’m sure David, as well, and obviously you, as well, do too. I don’t have fear anymore.

It’s time that we speak out and that we acquire a consciousness – a global, common consciousness – and get this thing to the front. Thank you, so much, I really appreciate it.”

There is also this lengthy, but equally as captivating interview between Credo Mutwa and David Icke. Although it covers many of the same subjects, it is fascinating as well and gives additional context to the interview with Mr. Martin.

Sadly, Credo Mutwa passed away last year on March 25th, 2020. I am very glad we were given the opportunity to hear this incredible account of his background and history, and the beliefs of the African people. While all of it may sound too incredulous to take in, I think it is high time to let go of any preconceived notions, realize that this world is full of mystery, and that there is still universal wisdom to be found in order to uncover the true nature of our reality.

Bless Credo Mutwa, and Mr. Martin and Mr. Icke, for helping this man’s voice be heard. May he rest in peace.

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.

Genesis 2: Adam and Eve

Earnest Examination

To start, I’ve realized that I have never read the Bible front to back, and so would like to remedy that. On some of my posts, I quote from the Bible, which I feel is a little insincere if I’m not going to study the whole Bible. So this is my chance to get closer to the Word and really understand the book that I occasionally quote from. 

Originally, I was going to start with the New Testament as a friend has advised me to do, since when I started on the Old Testament I kept getting hung up on what I saw at the time were contradictions, and baseless wickedness and corruption. It repelled me from the Bible. She mentioned that that is exactly why Jesus Christ came. To do away with the “old” ways and bring about a new, better way of living. Which is to love and care about one another. The reason the Old Testament is so important is so that we know the conditions of how the world used to be, before Jesus Christ arrived to show us a more peaceful and loving way to be. 

Now that I feel I may have a better understanding of this, I am compelled to start from “The Beginning“, both literally and figuratively. After having attempted Matthew 3, I realize that I am constantly having the urge to go back through the Bible to check references and names, etc. Since my desire is to take this one step at a time and build upon the knowledge based upon the timeline laid out before us in the Bible, I have decided to revisit the time I tried to read the Bible front to back, and see if my old views still stand. 

Make no mistake, I will still have questions and ponderings about why God decided to do the things He’s done (and of course more questions on top of that), but I have learned not to condemn or judge such actions since I do feel some things are beyond our understandings and it is not my place to judge. I will try my best to look at it from an unbiased and simply curious, thoughtful mind. 

To lay it out in a way that I can manage, I have highlighted the texts of verses that I either don’t understand or have a comment or question about in yellow. And the comments I’ve left beneath it will be of a smaller font and using brown text.

I would love it if you’d join me in this journey and if you have any insights and/or knowledge of these chapters/verses etc., please feel free to share with me and the other readers. Any chance to get a clearer understanding of the Bible and Jesus Christ would be welcomed with open arms.

All verses used are from biblestudytools.com (NIV) Genesis 2
1 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.
2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.
3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

I find it interesting that in the Christianity beliefs, this Holy Day is Sunday (which some scholars attribute to being from a pagan tradition – as in worshipping the sun). Yet in other religions, they observe the day as being on Saturday (also has its roots in paganism – the worship of Saturn) and even on Friday. When one chooses to attempt to look into these details about what day the true holy day is, it is met with a ton of references to pagan practices and mythology as well. Some hypothesize that the Bible is merely a retelling of ancient myths (Sumerian, Greek, Roman, Egyptian, etc.) with some alterations/additions.
To dig deep into the similarities and differences between all of these religious cultures would send you down a rabbit hole and, at least for me, leave me with more questions than answers. The only thing I can say for myself is to have faith and keep a good heart and to keep a relationship with God. I think as long as people are doing their best, God knows what’s in our hearts, and He is loving and forgiving. He knows that there is a lot of misleading and misinformation going on, but the key is to not give up and to keep searching and praying and work on our soul development. (at least in my beliefs)

Adam and Eve

4 This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the LORD God made the earth and the heavens.
5 Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the LORD God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground,
6 but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground.
7 Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

There are also interesting myths and re-tellings of the creation of man. It ranges from anywhere between the Blackfoot (Old Man) legend – which states that the first people were a woman and her son, created out of clay, to Norse mythology – the first man (Ask(r)) and woman (Embla) were created from tree trunks, and of course to the account that we have in the Christian doctrine, that man was first created out of the dust of the ground (or also clay) and that wo-man came from the “womb” of Adam, to many more different accounts. Some of which allege that we were born out of literal blood, sweat and tears from various beings.
8 Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed.
It’s interesting that the debate over where Eden could possibly be, even with all the hints and directions from the Bible, is one where so many people disagree upon. As we can see in versus 10-14, we are given the specific names of the four rivers that were sprouted from the river in Eden. Now, this is not taking into account that throughout history, there has possibly been (and this is just me speculating and theorizing…) a very specific agenda in order to rename these rivers in order to throw people off as to the real location of where Eden is. Not only that, but there are also historically proven documentation that lends credence to different empires’ goals to try and change or even eliminate the Christian doctrine altogether. (I propose that this is still happening in today’s time, but I won’t get into that on this particular post.)
Supposing that nothing was changed and everything was legitimately named the same as it always was (very unlikely), then determining the location of Eden would be quite easy, I would assume. As it is, and with some speculating that the biblical flood wiped out and/or covered this location, one could surmise that this was God’s doing in order to protect this location from suspicious individuals, or one could come to the conclusion that the location was and has been known by a select few, and they are still guarding the secrets for either their own benefit, and/or to deprive others from finding it in order to discredit the Bible. Or a handful of other interesting theories.
Researchers are still looking for the location, and I have to send out a warning again to not just blindly believe what we are being told. I have mentioned in my last post (Blue Beam Project) that there is a possible agenda to “unearth” (literally) various “proof” that will undermine the words of the Bible. So please be discerning with any and all material set forth by scholars, experts, scientists, researchers, etc., etc. 

9 The LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
From this verse I’ve come to the conclusion that both the tree of life and the tree of knowledge were practically right next to each other. Do we get a physical description of each tree? Other than that they were “pleasing to the eye”? I guess I’ll just have to keep reading to find out. I am not sure at this point. Although I do know that God specifically tells Adam not to eat from the tree of knowledge, but he does so willingly. So even if the trees were identical, Adam and Eve knew the difference anyway from knowingly taking it from the serpent.
10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters.
I could be way off base, but maybe this verse is alluding to these separated “headwaters” as being much larger than I originally anticipated. Perhaps it’s not the size of the rivers as we know it today, but much, much larger and covering a huge expanse that escapes most of us simply determining these bodies of waters as small rivers. And if the flood was as destructive as we are led to believe, perhaps the old rivers were also covered up by the floodwaters, making them even larger than we realized. I’m sure others have already come to this hypothesis, but it’s the first time I actually thought about it in detail as being a possibility.
11 The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold.
12 (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin and onyx are also there.)
13 The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush.
14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Ashur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.

These are all oddly specific verses that definitely seem to be giving the reader a greater understanding of where this Garden is, so why is it still a mystery today unless it was specifically designed to be so? Am I speculating that the location of this Garden has already been known and suppressed by those in the know? Why, yes. Yes I am. I have other theories, of course, that I’m not sure the readers are quite ready for yet, so I will just keep encouraging people to please look into these things themselves and keep an open mind and heart. Again, whatever you find, even if you have doubts, I truly believe that if you trust and faith in doing what’s right and good, then you are on the right path.
15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

God formed Adam from the dust of the Earth and then made the Garden of Eden, separate from where Adam was at the time, and then He put Adam into the Garden.
This begs the question, at least for me, how big was the Garden of Eden? How big was the space in which Adam occupied outside of the Garden? What timeframe from when God created Adam did God then decide to create this apparent paradise for Adam to live in?

16 And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;
17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”

There is a lot I can say here about God’s omniscience and humankind’s free will, but I will wait until later verses before I expand upon all of that. I also want to mention that some people have alluded to this “eat from the tree” as being a metaphor for simply choosing the “right path” vs. choosing the “wrong path”. It’s just fascinating to me that God presents all these wonderful, glorious trees – and then specifically two important trees right in the middle of the Garden, and gives Adam (and Eve) a choice. Again, I’m not going to get into free will vs. predetermination just yet, but it’s a guarantee that I will.
18 The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
19 Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.

I want to mention an interesting correlation between some people’s beliefs of a golem being created out of clay and coming to life. The Judeo-Christian belief that God Himself created the first golem out of clay, being Adam, of course. And some gnostic texts (that are widely excluded from the Bible) even reference Jesus Christ as a young boy, who created sparrows, for instance, out of clay and brought them to life. You can also read about the legend of Rabbi Löew, who, allegedly in 1580, created a golem in order “to spy on the Jews’ foes and shield them from persecution.”
20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals. But for Adam no suitable helper was found.
21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh.
22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

So before God made woman, He made all different types of animals and land and sea creatures to accompany the man, and when He saw that this was not sufficient enough, is when He made woman. My thought is, God himself wanted to create mankind in His own image – would He not expect man to want a companion of the same?
23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.”
24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.

I’m going to say this flat out, this verse confuses me. There was no “father” and “mother” as far as Adam and Eve is concerned, so why would this allude to being the reason why a mean leaves his parents? There were no such thing as children, no such thing as parents, no such thing as “family” whereas the first two human beings are concerned.
And if I’m going to be semantic about it, since Adam (man) was created first, and then woman from man, wouldn’t it make more sense for this verse to indicate that it is the woman who leaves her father and mother to be united with man? Woman, at least according to the Bible, is created for the sole purpose of being man’s companion. Not the other way around. I’m not saying I agree with this. Just that the context we’re presented with in these verses seem to allude to this. Do I just have this significantly backwards? Am I not understanding this correctly? Please someone point me in the right direction if this is grievously off course.

25 Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.

I think most of us are aware of in today’s society, the idea of nakedness is automatically conditioned within us to be associated with sex and/or the vulnerable state of being exposed. No longer are the thoughts simply pure and innocent, but by their eating of the tree of knowledge, somehow, this sense of naivete and virtue is lost and now they see the impurity and the embarrassment of exposing their body.

I want to reiterate that some of my thoughts and theories may be way off base, and I also research some other things on the side as well to try and get a broader understanding of what I’m reading, so please bear with me, or, even better, if you have insights that bring more light to these verses, please let me know.

I enjoy bouncing off theories and theology off of each other and love to hear other people’s perspectives on things. Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.
