The Hidden Christian Conception of Humankind

It is said that Adam and Eve were the first man and woman. According to the Christian Bible, this is incorrect. Because it is only stated briefly, the first half of the story is disregarded as the truth. Although it is true Adam is the first man to walk the Earth, Eve was not the first woman; she was the second. At the same moment The Christian God created the perfect man Adam from the land of the Earth, He created the perfect woman from the land of the Earth as well. It was not until later she was named Lilith. Adam demanded that Lilith submit unto him but she refused. She knew that they were created equally and she does not have to submit unto him nor does she expect Adam to submit unto her. Therefore, she decided to leave the Garden of Eden to explore the world and leave Adam alone in the Garden. Yearning for a better woman, Adam prayed and begged to The Christian God to give him another one. In response, The Christian God took a rib from Adam and created another perfect woman Eve. This time, because she was created for and from Adam, hence created unequally, she submitted unto him. During this time, an angel named Lucifer was watching and He instantly fell in love with Lilith, but knew they could not be together because He was an angel and she was human. Discouraged, He wanted to show how unappreciative Eve was for submitting unto Adam by testing her will. While He talked to Lilith, He sent an angel ally of His named Samael, in the form of a Serpent, to give Eve the chance to know how it feels to have a choice in life. As it turns out, Eve gave into temptation by eating the pomegranate then tempted Adam into eating it. They both were punished by The Christian God by losing their perfection and getting expelled from the Garden of Eden. Lilith, on the other hand, fell in love with Lucifer upon meeting Him. He explained to her that they cannot be together because they are of different entities, but He has the ability to convert her into an angel. Lilith made a deal with Lucifer: He would give her the gift of immortality and queen of His domain as long as she would bear Him human sons to carry on His thrown on Earth. With this agreement, Lucifer made Her an angel still containing human essence, making Her the very first succubus, or vampiress. After being exiled from the Garden, Adam and Eve conceived and gave birth to many sons and daughters. The first two sons, Cain and Abel, both had twin sisters to conceive many sons and daughters, but both of the female twins wanted Abel. In a jealous rage, Cain murdered Abel. As punishment, The Christian God had Cain venture the world alone. Upon seeing Cain and knowing of his past, Lilith introduced Herself to him. He instantly fell in love with Her and they conceived and gave birth to sons and daughters, who became heirs to Lucifer’s domain. Seth, the third son of Adam and Eve, conceived and gave birth with his sister Azura to many sons and daughters. To this day, Lucifer and Lilith, now a full angel, remain king and queen of the domain, overseeing the two bloodlines that have been spreading over the planet: one with (Cain’s line) and one without (Seth’s line) Lilith’s blood and perfection.

The Stories of Lilith and Persephone

This article is not to offend those who believe in the Christian Bible but yet to educate those about the truth behind the stories of Lilith and Persephone.

We have all heard and know the story of the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, and how Eve was created with Adam’s rib. This is documented in the Christian Bible in Genesis 2:21-22:

And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

This states that Eve was created after Adam; however, a full chapter earlier, it documents a previous woman was created at the same time as Adam in Genesis 1:27:

So God created man in his own image, in the image God created he him; male and female created he them.

Here, we see that both man and woman were created equally. Therefore, Eve was not the first woman to be created by the Christian God.

Who is this mystery woman? What happened to her? And why do Christians do not know of her existence and only accept Eve as the first woman? As you read in Genesis 1:27, this woman has no name. She is later known as Lilith, due to language translation from Hebrew to English. The story of Lilith is simple. An elite group of Israelis around 600 AD described that Adam asked Lilith to submit unto him, but she refused. She knew that they were both created equally and she would not bow down to Adam’s will, nor did she expect him to submit unto her. Adam disagreed and Lilith left the Garden of Eden in disappointment. Being the lone human in Eden, Adam prayed to the Christian God that another woman be created. As a result, as you read in Genesis 2:21-22, the Christian God took one of Adam’s ribs and created Eve. Because both Adam asked for Eve and Eve was made from Adam, Eve had to submit to Adam, and she did.

The next story we are familiar with is when the Serpent, on the side of Lucifer, tempted Eve into eating fruit from the tree and later tempted Adam into eating it in Genesis 3:4-6:

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Therefore, punishing them and the future of mankind: men being hunters and laborers while women being nurturers and child-bearers. This is also when the two realized they were nude and bore children to populate the Earth. Because Lilith left Eden prior to all this, there is debate as to whether Lilith was subject to the same punishment. Many think no due to the fact that she did not commit the same crime as Adam and Eve; however, others believe she was guilty of not submitting unto Adam in the first place and must suffer the same consequences as Eve. Some even believe that after the Christian God exiled mankind and the Serpent from Eden, the Serpent found Lilith, whom he tempted to eat the fruit just as he did with Eve, which gave her the same consequences as Eve. Others are skeptical of this due to the fruit did not come from the same tree and the Serpent simply cast a spell on Lilith in spite of his previous attempt. Since this incident, Lilith has sided with the Serpent and why many of the images seen today of her are with a snake and sometimes with fruit. Many confuse the woman with Eve, but this is due to the popularity of the story of Adam and Eve. The Serpent was later named Samael, daemon of the Underworld. His name along with Lilith’s can be seen in the background on the symbol for Satanism, which is a downward-pointing five-pointed star enveloped in a double circle with a goat’s head inside the star. Most believe Lilith became a succubus, a woman of seduction and persuasion, possibly for Samael or Lucifer himself. This could be why she is forgotten as the first woman. According to the story told in the previous paragraphs, Lilith was the first, perfect woman and man rejected her as they were created equally. So she fled to explore the world, only to find the Serpent who has already cursed the future of mankind. The rest is up to debate: whether she stayed a perfect woman and watched over mankind alongside Lucifer all these years or she became a child-bearer like Eve and combined her flesh with the sons of Adam and Eve. There’s also the great possibility that both of these stories could be joined: Lilith and Lucifer have been watching over the future of Lilith’s bloodline. This only proposes one question… who is in Lilith’s bloodline?

To some of you, this whole story may seem a bit familiar if you studied Greek mythology. For those of you who are not familiar with the story of Persephone, she was the daughter of Demeter who was taken to the Underworld by Hades and made Queen, alongside Hades. Obviously, Demeter became very upset drying the Earth and making it full of hunger. Upon trying to retrieve Persephone, Hades tricked her into eating fruit, which it was said that whoever shall eat fruit in the Underworld shall remain there. As a compromise, Hades saw that only six seeds were eaten, letting her be reacquainted with Demeter for six months out of the year. This story was created around 1400 BC, 2000 years prior to when the Israelis conceived the story of Lilith.

There are many similarities between these two stories. Demeter is none other than Mother Nature and creator of Persephone. There are many Pagans who believe that the Creator was a Goddess instead of a God, or possibly both. In either case, we know Demeter was the mother of Persephone and the Christian God was the father of Lilith. Hades represents Lucifer, and possibly even all of his closest, earliest followers, such as Samael. On that note, Hades tricked Persephone into eating fruit just as the Serpent did to mankind, who both fell into temptation. Also, after much geographic research, it is found that the mentioned fruit in the Garden of Eden was actually pomegranate, not apple. This is the exact same fruit mentioned in the story of Persephone. It also has been said that once Persephone became Queen, she became a succubus, just as Lilith did. Upon research, one will find many more minor similarities between Persephone and Lilith. This can only lead to one question… are Persephone and Lilith essentially the same person?

Expanding the Needs in an Interdependent Community

Reviewing my last two blogs, some people may question the issue of the abundance of those in need and my use of positivity when it comes to health. Using the same example as before, if a doctor has ten patients and only needs two things, should the doctor turn down the other eight or the ones who don’t have what he or she needs? Of course not.

It’s the doctor’s duty to ensure the health of each patient. For the ones who do not have what the doctor needs, they can offer communication, as I explained in a previous blog. There are other options available. The remaining patients can either offer a type of need that the doctor can save until later when he or she needs it or they can go to another doctor who does need what the patients are offering. Just because one person is a doctor, does not mean another can’t be. However, they both must treat each patient equally. By each patient, I mean any patient that needs a doctor, and not a specific doctor. To further explain, if Tom and Jerry are both doctors and they have ten patients totaled together, both Tom and Jerry should ensure the health of each patient, regardless of whether the patient chooses Tom or Jerry. In the case of an absence of patients, the doctor can utilize another type of need to obtain other types of needs. With this being said, I hardly doubt that within a community, there will be only doctors. Everyone has a unique gift and it is doubtful that all will be the same.

So far, I have said that doctors are essential to put patients in good health. What if the doctor is unable to fix or cure an illness? Should the patient still return a type of need? I have stated over and over that doctors have the duty of ensuring the health of their patients. If there is nothing that can be done for the patient and the doctor has done everything he or she can, including researching, then yes, the patient should return a type of need. If the doctor refuses to research further after realizing nothing can be done, the patient should not be expected to return a type of need. It is the doctor’s duty to not only ensure this patient’s health, but to educate him or herself on the illness for future patients. This within itself will fulfill a type of need, communication. This method does not only pertain to doctors, but to anyone. If anyone fails at a job, the person must educate him or herself to better themselves for the future; thus fulfilling a need.

Interdependence and What It Means

In my previous blog, I used the term “interdependence”. What is interdependence? Interdependence is one of four ways we rely and communicate with others. Before I completely define interdependence, it will be easier to understand once the other three ways are explained.

The first is what society wants everybody to strive for, independence. Independence is simply defined as relying on oneself completely. The second is the complete opposite, dependence. Dependence is when one completely relies on another. The third is co-dependence, an unequal dependence between multiple people. I believe our society has evolved into a co-dependent society. Many people rely too much on others for support and help and only give back however much they see fit. This gives those people an excuse to judge others and classify them. I am not talking about minority groups; I am talking about the majority groups. Taking the example from my previous blog, doctors and insurance agents make up a portion of the majority group, part of the “upper-class”. If a patient goes to a doctor, but the doctor does not accept the patient’s type of healthcare, how is this fair? Again, isn’t it the doctor’s duty to see that the patient is in good health? The doctor is classifying patients by ruling a majority of them out or asking for monetary payment in return. The doctor is relying too much on support from insurance companies; therefore, decreasing the number of patients instead of doing his or her duty by making sure all patients are in good health. In an interdependent society, doctors would make sure that all patients are in good health.

Interdependence is defined as an equal dependence between multiple people. As I stated in my previous blog, in an interdependent society, everyone collaborates peacefully using their unique gift with the objective to maintain equal amount of survival for everyone. Doctors know the value of a life, and no matter of the type of healthcare, would treat each patient, as it is his or her duty. The patient would then return the favor by giving a type of need, as it is essential for life, to make things equal.

To amount of what is given should not play a role or even come into question, because the outcome will always be survival, and that is the main goal in an interdependent society.

Healthcare Does Not Bring Peace

Many people have asked me about my thoughts on healthcare. It is obvious that one needs to be in good health in order to survive. Insurance companies are the ones that decide whether an individual receives healthcare and the amount. Those individuals who can afford more insurance obtain more insurance than those who cannot. Is this fair?

If two patients with identical health issues but with different amounts of healthcare insurance went to a doctor, should the doctor favor the patient with more insurance over the other? Of course not. Doctors solely exist to better their patients’ health. Doctors are essential for life because in order to survive, one needs to be in good health. Both patients need to be in good health and therefore, the doctor must do his or her duty by tending to both of them.

Everyone has a gift, a duty, in life. Doctors have the duty of putting patients in good health. By giving good health, the doctor is giving the patient a better chance of survival. There is no price on survival. The doctor should not expect monetary payment in return. This is what many people oversee. Doctors should expect a better chance of survival in return. In my previous blog, I stated that one needs three things in order to survive: replenishment, thermoregulation, and communication. Whichever the doctor is lacking, he or she should expect in return.

Two issues may arise with this method. One being what if the doctor is not lacking in any of the three types of needs. I find this quite unlikely since communication is always a need. People may not want it, but it is a need. For example, if the doctor healed a fisherman, the fisherman could easily return the favor by teaching the doctor how to fish. This will not only include communication, but also replenishment. Thus, making the doctor more knowledgeable and well-rounded, able to teach others how to fish. The other issue is what if the patient has nothing to give in return or does not have what the doctor needs. I find this hard to believe as I believe everyone can teach something to better another. If not, the patient could locate someone who could do something for the doctor if the patient did something for that someone. Despite these issues, they come with an advantage. In either issue, the patient has started a network, a community. This community is not just any community, but a community of interdependence; where everyone collaborates peacefully using their unique gift with the objective to maintain equal amount of survival for everyone.

And ultimately, isn’t that fair?

The Types of Needs

One of the biggest misconceptions in society is the idea of a need. Many people cannot differentiate a need from a want. A need is something an individual has to have in order to survive, or live, while a want is just something that will benefit an individual, such as making life easier. A need can benefit an individual in terms of survival, but in most cases, a want is used for entertainment or pleasure, which is not required for survival. To maintain survival, needs are categorized into three groups: replenishment, thermoregulation, and communication.

Replenishment is what individuals use to revitalize and recharge their systems with energy. There are four ways of doing this. First, one must eat food. Second, one must have at least water. Food and water give individuals energy throughout the day in order to survive. To recharge, an individual must rest and get sleep to increase their energy levels. Finally, one must work out and exercise to keep the organs working and blood flowing.

Thermoregulation is what keeps individuals at a temperature they are comfortable with and can tolerate in order to survive. There are three ways in doing this. First, to survive extreme weather conditions that the body cannot handle, an individual must have shelter. This will keep the individual from outside temperatures. However, inside a shelter, conditions may still be extreme and can be regulated by clothing. At the very most, an individual can use other forms of energy to stay at a decent temperature, whether inside or outside. These include a heater, air conditioner, fireplace, and a bonfire.

Communication is the way an individual expresses him or herself to others and gets feedback. There are four ways of doing this. An individual first learns about the world by moving; through the senses. When an individual waves a hand, they can feel the air moving through the fingers. An individual then learns by speaking. Once they can ask a question, an answer will follow and the individual has now been educated. After this, an individual then begins to write. Here, they express their feelings and wonders with images and words. Education is also introduced this way. Finally, an individual can also communicate with him or herself by expanding their knowledge into different parts of the brain that may assist them in predicting certain outcomes in their life and others’. This is called intuitive communication. In all four of these types of communication, education is imparted and fulfills the need of communication. Without communication, one cannot become educated and evolve.

Replenishment, thermoregulation, and communication are the keys to survival. Without one of these, an individual could not live. The questions remaining are does each individual have the right to each of these, and if so, is there a set amount? If so, why is there a set amount?

"Individualists Are One"?

Now that I’ve given you my philosophy on being an Individualist, what does “Individualists Are One” actually mean?

I chose this title for my series of blogs because it has multiple meanings. The first means that each Individualist has his or her own ideas and beliefs; and therefore, unique in his or her own way. Thus, stating Individualists each are one unique, individual being. The second relates to the fact that Individualists can assemble together to achieve the goal of individualism. Thus, stating Individualists together are one as a whole defending for their right for the expression of their individuality.

Deep down, we all have our own ideas and beliefs, and this is the place where Individualists Are One.
