Creating Our Own Reality

Do we allow evil to run rampant in the world?

I have heard it multiple times, that the reason evil is allowed to run rampant in the world is because “they” disclose this information to us through movies, shows, music videos, games, etc. – and “we” allow it; by not caring, not doing anything about it, not objecting, or what have you.

There’s many terms people have used for this type of manipulation:

predictive programming“Predictive programming is a subtle form of psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented by TPTB.

If and when these changes are put through, the public will already be familiarized with them and will accept them as ‘natural progressions’, as Alan Watt (*) calls it; thus lessening any possible public resistance and commotion.

Predictive programming therefore may be considered as a veiled form of preemptive mass manipulation or mind control”The Conditioning of Humans

soft/hard disclosure
disclosure: “The act or process of revealing or uncovering. / Something uncovered; a revelation.”
hard disclosure: revealing information that is directly told to the public without any pretense – could be through official documents, FOIAs, press hearings, etc.
soft disclosure: information that is hidden within different avenues – (ex.) through the media, fiction books, symbols, subliminal messages, etc. that hints at its existence.

social conditioning“The sociological process of training individuals in a society to act in a way that’s broadly approved by the society and various peer groups.

The result is a set of given social patterns and structures in society. In fact, a lot of our beliefs, customs, etiquette and mannerisms come from social conditioning.”Social Conditioning Quotes: Thoughts on How to Escape the Matrix

or any other number of terms indicating that these evil masterminds have indeed “told us” their plan, and by the people continuing to go about their normal, everyday lives, that is somehow giving them permission to green light their plan.

Well, I’m not sorry to say, but that is absolutely ridiculous and in no way does it give permission to carry out their heinous deeds.

Of course, even if this is true, then these people who “disclose” their plans do so in such a convoluted manner to imply that whoever does believe it to be true is a crazy conspiracy theorist, a delusional paranoid, dangerous terrorist, schizophrenic dissenter, etc., etc., etc.

They’ve set up a twisted system that even if their esoteric laws demands that they reveal to the public their diabolical agendas, no one would believe them and these normal citizens would continue on with their life none the wiser. This, in no way, is the public “allowing” them to go through with whatever hellish plans they’ve decided to unleash upon the world.

And let me add by saying, no matter what other people believe or don’t believe, no matter what these corrupt industries are doing or have been doing, I DO NOT CONSENT.

I DO NOT CONSENT in these evil corporations running their human/child trafficking rings.

(I have not watched the documentary ‘Eyes of the Devil’ by Patryk Vega. I have only read the description of what it is about, and that alone is heart-wrenching and sickening enough. It is currently available on bitchute. Search and watch it at your own risk…)

I DO NOT CONSENT in any satanic/luciferian/aleister crowleyian/ANY rituals that harm/subjugate/torture/kill/etc. ANY life whatsoever.

I DO NOT CONSENT to being treated like cattle who needs to be tagged and traced and every move dictated by these power-hungry individuals/corporations.

I could go on and on, but the bottom line is, I have not, and will not, give my permission for all of these corrupted establishments to continue blind-siding human beings and giving us the lame excuse that we have somehow allowed it. I DON’T allow it, I DON’T give them permission, I DON’T accept it, and this is me now saying that my will is that this whole planet will wake up to these insane sounding agendas, start working on our own spiritual development (and therefore the whole world), and build a better future for every living creature on this planet.

I know the notion of a Higher Power, a Supreme Being, a universal Creator, etc. may be lost on some people, but I have to admit, it’s fascinating when even some of the most famous of scientists (“trust the science”, right?) believe in God or a creator entity. Some of their conclusions even stem from their research into this mysterious universe, and their findings ultimately end up pointing them in the direction of a divine universal consciousness or Higher Power.

Of course, this isn’t to imply that other scientists don’t come to the exact opposite conclusion; that there is no God. But to have actual philosophers, researchers, scientists, doctors, etc. – one of whose main ideology is based upon studies and facts, come to the realization that there is a mysterious force within the universe, is incredibly insightful and extremely compelling. For others to automatically denounce the metaphysical realm simply because we cannot “scientifically measure it” (yet?), is missing the whole point of metaphysics to begin with.

(Then, on the flip side, it’s very uncanny that a lot of those in high, official positions seem to worship an entirely different entity… – 4 Videos Of Politicians Confronted About Bohemian Grove That Make You Say WTF – just one example, out of many)

Now, whether we, as a collective whole, choose to continue to ignore these agendas being laid out for us to “see” and in their law, gives them the right to continue their insidious actions of terror against life and spirit – or whether we finally “WAKE UP” and refuse to give them this permission by standing up to them and announcing that, “NO. We will not be a part of this terrible scheme.” remains to be seen.

But I, for one, and I’m sure PLENTY OF OTHERS, are waking up to this reality and in so doing, we must realize that if they believe they can continue on with no repercussions because the blind don’t see it, then by us bringing this darkness to light, we can then begin to counteract this belief by our own that there is indeed a righteous God, and He will pass the final judgment upon them (not only them – all of us). And I pray every single day that He comes soon.

3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,
4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.
5 For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake.
6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:3-6

“They” know this, yet they remain in their stubborn and rebellious hardened-heart state, and who allows that? They do. They allow their own demise. And unless they repent and truly seek forgiveness and turn back from their wicked ways, then nothing else will be able to save them. They will be lost to the darkness that they so love, because they don’t know the true horrors that will come with it until it’s too late.

And this, I DO ALLOW.

I believe in Love and Forgiveness, with my whole heart, although I am still struggling with certain aspects of it, but to “allow” evil to run rampant because of the dichotomy of Love and Forgiveness is, at least to me, against the Divine Wisdom set up by the Holy Heavens. Whatever They decide to do to each person’s soul/spirit depending on the state of their heart, will give these evil-inclined souls a glimpse into the “reap what they sow” doctrine. To give these corrupted individuals a clean slate through the forgiveness/karmic debt is ultimately not allowing them to learn their spiritual lesson through their actions.

This is my belief, and my reality. And while I may have failed the “Forgiveness” test set forth for me, I trust in God to lead the way and bring me to the Truth and the Light so that I can expand upon this understanding and help others to grow as well.

My reality, is that we ALL wake up to who we truly are; but, to not infringe upon those that wish to stay blind and remain in the dark, that those who have chosen to open their eyes and work on their spiritual development will be able to leave this current reality, and start building our own. Where people can be truly happy and blessed and not have to worry about evil corruption ruining humankind. Those that choose to remain behind, will be in their own sordid reality that they chose for themselves.

But I honestly pray for them, too. That they will come out of the darkness.

2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shined.
Isaiah 9:2

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 6: Wickedness in the World

Earnest Examination

This series is presented as an honest, sincere look into the study of the Bible with my own personal theories, opinions, comments and that of others’ insights and research into what the verses could mean. I cannot claim one way or another that everything that I am stating is fact and the true meaning of what is meant in these verses.

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 6

Wickedness in the World

1 When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them,
2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose.
There are some speculation that what the Bible means with the phrase “sons of God” is simply describing men. Whether they could have been from the “Godly” line of Seth, intermarrying with the sinful lineage of Cain, or whether these men could have been kingly/rulers who thought of themselves as a god. Who are ‘the sons of God’ in Genesis 6?
However, when looking at the context, and especially knowing about the other books that were not included in the Bible but that did explain the details of this verse, it becomes clear that it was not simply describing men.
I think more of a question is to how these “sons of God” married and mated with the women to bring forth the nephilim. Obviously none of us are fully aware of their anatomy… but some theories that perhaps could explain this situation is that these beings did not mate with the women as we know it. If they are spiritual beings, then perhaps they either possessed actual human males in order to take upon themselves wives and procreate that way, or, perhaps they possessed the very woman they wanted and due to a supernatural birthing of sorts, could have forced the women to give birth to the nephilim. If we take the word “nephilim” as a different word for demon or spirit, perhaps, then it could be that what we think of as a literal “giant” is incorrect.

3 Then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal ; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”
This verse takes me back to when God walked upon the land to confront Adam and Eve and then later Cain. It seems to indicate that God walked the Earth literally. In a physical form, of sorts. One could surmise that God meant metaphysically in this verse, however. Is He talking about His Spirit meaning the Holy Ghost? Is He talking about it in the sense that His Spirit will not stay in the hearts of men? Or that He Himself as a Spirit will not stay in our midst? Upon further research of this verse it could also indicate that what is meant by His Spirit is simply the breath of Life. Without God’s Spirit in us, we would die.
4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.
Here we see the term “Nephilim” for the first time. I honestly find it fascinating that the Gnostic books that go into detail about some of these controversial subjects have been hidden from the public. Whether the contents are true or not, it almost seems as if the very concerted effort to conceal these writings are hiding a certain kind of agenda. The search for truth is often frowned upon when compared with a strict religiosity.
(What would be the purpose of trying to hide certain content from believers, especially if there is a ring of truth to them?)
Now I also want to point out the phrase “heroes of old”. Immediately it brings to my mind the tales of Hercules or Thor, Krishna, Achilles, etc. Many myths/legends talk of these “heroes” or “sons of God” (at least according to the myths of the time) – Hercules and Perseus from Zeus, Thor from Odin, etc. Could these myths be based on fact? Was Zeus, Odin, Quetzlcoatl, Vishnu, etc. considered these “sons of Gods” and their offspring the “heroes of old”/nephilim that the Bible speaks of? This is purely speculation, but it does seem to eerily correlate to the myths from around the world.
I also want to mention that this verse states ‘and also afterward’… Does this imply that Nephilim exist even in today’s world? It’s assumed that everyone was wiped out due to the flood except for Noah, his wife, his sons and their wives. Perhaps this is true. Or perhaps some other beings were able to survive within mountains or other terrain that weren’t hit by the flood. And even if every living thing were wiped out, the ‘also afterward’ lends credence to the fact that the sons of God went again to the daughters of men and created more Nephilim.

5 The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time.
6 The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.
My heart is deeply troubled from these verses.
One, are human beings really that bad that the only thing they think about are evil inclinations? I’m a human being and I’d like to think that my heart isn’t always consumed with evil thoughts. In fact, one of my goals is to appeal to others to do the right thing and choose love and integrity above anything else. I have huge love and compassion for people and the world (thanks to ‘divine intervention’, I should add) that it’s hard for me to fathom that there could be so much evil within the world and that most people’s hearts would be filled with wickedness.
Now, I have to admit, when I was younger, I was not the nicest person on the planet and in fact pretty much hated almost everyone. I was filled with anger and wrath and while these feelings were born out of frustration that ‘good’ people aren’t justified and that ‘evil’ tends to win, I was slowly becoming the very person I hated. Thanks to a spiritual enlightenment of sorts, I am no longer like that. So it makes me wonder if this intervention could appeal to other human beings in the same manner. Perhaps that is what is meant when Jesus said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” Maybe a Spirit or Spirits (Angel or Angels) tries to help all of us, but only certain people will actually heed their call.
My other concern with this is that God regretted creating humans. There’s always this agreement within the religious community that God is infallible and can do no wrong. However, according to this verse, God clearly regrets making a mistake. But this is a contradiction, is it not? How could an all-powerful, perfect being make a mistake? Unless, of course, He can’t – and it is only the biblical verse and/or the interpretation that is wrong.
Which is more plausible? That God created humans knowing that there was only going to be evil in their hearts, or that the bible throughout the ages has been mistranslated/corrupted by the hands of these “evil” men? And since I did not live during these times that the bible speaks of (at least, not to my knowledge…) I cannot say one way or another whether all (most) humans at the time only thought of evil/wicked things. It is sad though, if this is true, that the only few that God found worthy enough to spare are eight people total, and He also felt the need to wipe out most animals from the face of the Earth as well.
One more concern I have, is that after the above mention of Nephilim and the relation to “sons of God”, we don’t hear anything else about these creations until Numbers… What happened to them? According to the Bible, would a Nephilim be considered a human being? Or a different type of entity altogether? If they were born out of the union of a human and a fallen angel, then by all intents and purposes, they cannot be considered as a human being; although they could be considered a human-angel (or human-demon, if one is to theorize that a fallen angel becomes a demon) hybrid. There are also speculations that due to the corrupt nature of mankind during these times, that they also corrupted animals by making hybrids of them as well. (We can also see that in abundance in today’s society.) Could this be another reason that God wanted the animals wiped out, save for the pure few that God commanded Noah to save?

7 So the LORD said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.”
8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.

Noah and the Flood

9 This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.
10 Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.
11 Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence.
12 God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways.
When we look at this according to the lifetimes of the peoples on the planet at the time, the days from Adam to Noah expands just 10 generations, according to the Bible. And according to how long people lived during those times, despite the very verse above saying that the Spirit of God will remain with man for 120 years, the people in Noah’s days and earlier lived close to 1,000 years. …Are we misunderstanding the numerical terminology in these quotes? If Adam was created from the beginning and lived to 930 years old, while each generation afterwards lived on average for around 800 years, give or take a few, and the Bible never states definitively how many children each generation had, and during these times even with direct lineage from Adam, people still ended up violent and corrupt – not just some people but enough to really cause grievance to God, then what hope do we have who are living today with no real background as to our genealogy or relation to the Lord?
I am heartened by the fact that this is exactly why Jesus came, in order to teach the generations afterwards the “right” way to live which is to treat each other with love and respect. It’s interesting to me that from the beginning of time we’ve had the grievous sin of murder that Cain acted upon his brother due to jealousy. And what’s even more mind-boggling, is that we did not even hear what kind of corruption and wickedness took place during Noah’s timeframe to compel God to initiate the flood to wipe out the beings from the Earth to begin with. Everything we hear of the violence and corruption in the Bible occurred after the flood. And these were already incredibly atrocious. How much worse was it before the flood?

13 So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.
So I guess another question I have is, even though we saw Cain attack his brother Abel and commit violence at the beginning, could the rise of the people’s violence be due to the “sons of God” mingling with the humans? Would the violence and corruption be so bad without their interference? Or was it due to the people’s willingness to be corrupted by these “spirits/angels/etc.” that the wickedness exacerbated? Could this actually be what people think of as consorting with demonic entities?
14 So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.
15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high.
16 Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit high all around. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.
17 I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish.
I am of the belief that while God’s intention was indeed to wipe out every “living” being on the planet, the one thing that may not have been taken into account was perhaps the spiritual entities that tainted mankind to begin with. If these “sons of God” or perhaps Watchers, as the Book of Enoch tells it, could wander the world as a spiritual form, then it wouldn’t be until the waters settled and more people were born that they once again inhabited or established their presence to corrupt humankind once again. This is just a theory, of course, and another theory that’s been proposed is that certain people/hybrids did indeed hide out in cavernous mountains, underground tunnels, etc. and only re-emerged once it was safe to do so. Of course, this would have been an oversight on the part of God, which would have had to take this into account and seems unlikely from an all-knowing God; so honestly I am not sure if any of these theories hold water (no pun intended).
18 But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you.
I have to point out the obvious: while Noah found favor in the Lord which allowed him and his family to be spared from the flood, it has to be stated that everything else wicked and corrupted that arose since the flood is due to the very people that were aboard the ark since they were allegedly the only survivors. Is this correct in this line of thinking? If the Bible is to be believed fully, then yes, we would have to believe that everyone else was wiped out from the flood, so whatever corruption and evil wickedness that arose in the hearts of mankind since then has to be attributed to this lineage.
On the other hand, if we are to consider the likelihood that other beings/spirits were able to survive the flood and continue their interference upon humankind, then it would fall in line with other speculations of the Nephilim quite possibly still living today.

19 You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you.
20 Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive.

I have to bring this up since it is a hotly debated topic, but the very specific mention of ‘male and female’ seems to indicate the natural response in order to keep a living being reproducing. The unity between a male/female in order to naturally create offspring. Of course “science” has other things in mind, whether it’s born out of “good intentions” or not, and in my honest opinion the measures that have been taken “in the name of science” have actually upset the natural order of things for one reason or another and is doing more damage than good.
There is a popular saying, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” and I feel this fits in nicely sadly here. There is a very controversial intent to normalize transgenderism, even among children, that I feel is leading us down a dangerous path. What may have been introduced as an inclusive, “compassionate” drive to not ostracize people that feel this way, has I think grown to an alarming precedence that alters the very natural fabric of our being. Instead of accepting others as they are naturally born, we are under the duress of an ever-changing and alternate agenda to corrupt mankind to our core.
These opinions could be unfounded, of course, but when one takes on the whole scope of history and the corruption that has been going on quite possibly since the beginning of time, it may not be that far-fetched.

The other interesting thing to note here is the specific wording that the animals will come to Noah to be kept alive. It seems deliberate; almost as if saying that the animals that come to Noah were led to do so. Perhaps by the Holy Spirit? But why would this be necessary? If humankind was evil and wicked, what would the need be to wipe out most of animal kind as well? Was it simply because they would have been caught up in the disaster of the flood due to the effort to wipe out most of humanity? Could it possibly have meant that even animals were corrupted by the wickedness of humankind as well? It just seems strange that a huge deluge was needed to wipe out most of the living beings on the planet if only humankind was the cause of God’s grievance. Is God not capable of just smiting human beings by withdrawing the Spirit of God from within them?
Perhaps I am just over analyzing.


21 You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them.”
22 Noah did everything just as God commanded him.

It makes me wonder, if we heard God’s voice talking to us in today’s day and age, would we just shrug it off as our imagination, or would we be discerning enough to wonder where it’s coming from? Would we attribute it to our conscience? Would we heed the directions like Noah did, or just dismiss it as a random, crazy thought?

Again, 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.

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.
