In my search for a the Adites/Andites or Atlantean I came across the mention of an ancient race known in the Golan heights area as the Amorites which included great kings of an earlier ancient race. The last great kings of this great where King of Og and Kadesh where known of men of great stature and of great power described like the "like the height of the cedars," who occupied the land west of the Jordan. King Og being the last king of this race was described as "of the remnant of the giants" (Deut. 3:11)
Amorites was used by the Israelites to refer to certain highland mountaineers, or hillmen (described in Gen. 14:7 as descendants of Canaan) who inhabited that land. In the Bible, they are described as a powerful people of great stature "like the height of the cedars," who had occupied the land east and west of the Jordan river; their king, Og, being described as the last "of the remnant of the giants" (Deut. 3:11)
Interesting site evidence of this remains of this great race can bee seen in the megalithic blocks of Baalbek and the rings of Bashan which known as the capital of Og.
Here is a copy taken from this website that describes the The God of the Amorites, Amurru.
The god Amurru
Amurru and Martu are also names given in Akkadian and Sumerian texts to the god of the Amorite/Amurru people, often forming part of personal names. He is sometimes called Ilu Amurru (DINGIR.DINGER.MAR.TU). This god Amurru/Martu is sometimes described as a shepherd and as a son of the sky god Anu. He is sometimes called bêlu &353;ad&299; or bêl &353;adê lord of the mountain dúr-hur-sag-gá sikil-a-ke4 He who dwells on the pure mountain, and kur-za-gan ti-[la] who inhabits the shining mountain. In Cappadocian Zin&269;irli inscriptions he is called ì-li a-bi-a the god of my father. Accordingly it has been suggested that by L. R. Bailey (1968) and Jean Ouelette (1969) that this Bêl &352;adê might be the same as the Biblical &8217;&274;l &352;add&257;i who is the god of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the P-strand of narrative according to the documentary hypothesis. It is possible that &352;add&257;i means He of the mountains. Amurru's wife is sometimes the goddess A&353;ratum (see Asherah) who in northwest Semitic tradition and Hittite tradition appears as wife of the god &274;l which suggests that Amurru may indeed have been a variation of that god. If Amurru was identical with &274;l it would explain why so few Amorite names are compounded with the name Amurru but so many are compounded with Il, that is with &274;l. Amurru also has storm god features. Like Adad he bears the epithet ram&257;n thunderer and he is even called b&257;riqu hurler of the thunderbolt and Adad &353;a a-bu-be Adad of the deluge. Yet his iconography is distinct from that of Adad and he sometimes appears along side Adad with a baton of power or throwstick while Adad bears a conventional thunderbolt Another tradition about Amurru's wife (or One of Amurru's wives) gives her name as Belit-Seri Lady of the Desert. A third tradition appears in a delightful Sumerian poem in pastoral style which relates how the god Martu came to marry Adg&771;ar-kidug the daughter of the god Numushda of the city of Inab. It contains an amusing speech expressing urbanite Sumerian disgust at uncivilized, nomadic Amurru life which Adg&771;ar-kidug ignores, responding only: "I will marry Martu!". The god Amurru was identified with the constellation Perseus.
The following points in mind are all reminiscent of 1st Eden and the mountain of the God submerged on the coast of Cyprus.
Amurru and Martu are also names given in Akkadian and Sumerian texts to the god of the Amorite/Amurru people,
This god Amurru/Martu is sometimes described as a shepherd and as a son of the sky god Anu. He is sometimes called bêlu &353;ad&299; or bêl &353;adê lord of the mountain dúr-hur-sag-gá sikil-a-ke4
He who dwells on the pure mountain, and kur-za-gan ti-[la] who inhabits the shining mountain. In Cappadocian Zin&269;irli inscriptions he is called ì-li a-bi-a the god of my father.
Here are certain fragments that describe in my view the garden
This god Amurru/Martu is sometimes described as a shepherd and as a son of the sky god Anu.
u &353;ad&299; or bêl &353;adê lord of the mountain
Like Adad he bears the epithet ram&257;n thunderer and he is even called b&257;riqu hurler of the thunderbolt and Adad &353;a a-bu-be Adad of the deluge
As we examine this analysis we can see that Bel was the main God who came from a holy mountain which seems to fit the structures found of Cyprus. Could this be the original land of the Gods?
Looking from a Urantia Book we can find references to the term Bel this is what we come up with
PAPER 95 - THE MELCHIZEDEK TEACHINGS IN THE LEVANT, Oct 19 2000
line 34: The Salem teachers greatly reduced the number of the gods of
Mesopotamia, at one time bringing the chief deities down to seven: Bel,
Shamash, Nabu, Anu, Ea, Marduk, and Sin. At the height of the new teaching
they exalted three of these gods to supremacy over all others, the Babylonian
triad: Bel, Ea, and Anu, the gods of earth, sea, and sky. Still other
triads grew up in different localities, all reminiscent of the trinity
teachings of the Andites and the Sumerians and based on the belief of the
Salemites in Melchizedek's insignia of the three circles.
Interesting considering the 3
concentric circles of Bashan.
line 44: It was the Salem missionaries of the period following the rejection of their teaching who wrote many of the Old Testament Psalms, inscribing them on stone, where later-day Hebrew priests found them during the captivity and subsequently incorporated them among the collection of hymns ascribed to Jewish authorship. These beautiful psalms from Babylon were not written in the temples of Bel-Marduk; they were the work of the descendants of the earlier Salem missionaries, and they are a striking contrast to the magical conglomerations of the Babylonian priests. The Book of Job is a fairly good reflection of the teachings of the Salem school at Kish and throughout Mesopotamia.
PAPER 96 - YAHWEH--GOD OF THE HEBREWS, Oct 19 2000
line 27: In conceiving of Deity, man first includes all gods, then subordinates all foreign gods to his tribal deity, and finally excludes all but the one God of final and supreme value. The Jews synthesized all gods into their more sublime concept of the Lord God of Israel. The Hindus likewise combined their multifarious deities into the "one spirituality of the gods" portrayed in the Rig-Veda, while the Mesopotamians reduced their gods to the more centralized concept of Bel-Marduk. These ideas of monotheism matured all over the world not long after the appearance of Machiventa Melchizedek at Salem in Palestine. But the Melchizedek concept of Deity was unlike that of the evolutionary philosophy of inclusion, subordination, and exclusion; it was based exclusively on creative power and very soon influenced the highest deity concepts of Mesopotamia, India, and Egypt.
Here is a word search on the Melchizedek and the later origins of the 3 concentric circles.
PAPER 93 - MACHIVENTA MELCHIZEDEK, Oct 19 2000
line 46: In personal appearance, Melchizedek resembled the then blended Nodite and Sumerian peoples, being almost six feet in height and possessing a commanding presence. He spoke Chaldean and a half dozen other languages. He dressed much as did the Canaanite priests except that on his breast he wore an emblem of three concentric circles, the Satania symbol of the Paradise Trinity. In the course of his ministry this insignia of three concentric circles became regarded as so sacred by his followers that they never dared to use it, and it was soon forgotten with the passing of a few generations.
line 59: The symbol of the three concentric circles, which Melchizedek adopted as the insignia of his bestowal, a majority of the people interpreted as standing for the three kingdoms of men, angels, and God. And they were allowed to continue in that belief; very few of his followers ever knew that these three circles were emblematic of the infinity, eternity, and universality of the Paradise Trinity of divine maintenance and direction; even Abraham rather regarded this symbol as standing for the three Most Highs of Edentia, as he had been instructed that the three Most Highs functioned as one. To the extent that Melchizedek taught the Trinity concept symbolized in his insignia, he usually associated it with the three Vorondadek rulers of the constellation of Norlatiadek.
- PAPER 104 - GROWTH OF THE TRINITY CONCEPT, Oct 19 2000
line 35: The third presentation of the Trinity was made by Machiventa Melchizedek, and this doctrine was symbolized by the three concentric circles which the sage of Salem wore on his breast plate. But Machiventa found it very difficult to teach the Palestinian Bedouins about the Universal Father, the Eternal Son, and the Infinite Spirit. Most of his disciples thought that the Trinity consisted of the three Most Highs of Norlatiadek; a few conceived of the Trinity as the
Here is information of the Violet race and information about the earlier Andite race from the Urantia Book
PAPER 78 - THE VIOLET RACE AFTER THE DAYS OF ADAM, Oct 19 2000
line 82: The earliest Andite peoples took origin in the regions adjacent to Mesopotamia more than twenty-five thousand years ago and consisted of a blend of the Adamites and Nodites. The second garden was surrounded by concentric circles of diminishing violet blood, and it was on the periphery of this racial melting pot that the Andite race was born. Later on, when the migrating Adamites
It becomes clear that the earlier race of the Amorites where linked to the Adad, Adites hence Andites of The Urantia Book who where a blend between the Adamites and Nodites more than 25,000 ago. The race held the legends of 1st Eden by this admixation and perpetuated the story as seen in the religions of the Amorites with its references to the holy mountain, the abodes of the original obviously speaking about the Gods Adam and Eve whether they knew it or not.
In the following is a huge study of the Adites as seen by Ignatius Donnelley which may provide further value to meanings of the forefather of the Amorites.
THE ANTEDILUVIAN WORLD
by Ignatius Donnelly
THE MYTHOLOGIES OF THE OLD WORLD A RECOLLECTION OF ATLANTIS
TRADITIONS OF ATLANTIS
WE find allusions to the Atlanteans in the most ancient traditions of many different races.
The great antediluvian king of the Mussulman was Shedd-Ad-Ben-Ad, or Shed-Ad, the son of Ad, or Atlantis.
Among the Arabians the first inhabitants of that country are known as the Adites, from their progenitor, who is called Ad, the grandson of Ham. These Adites were probably the people of Atlantis or Ad-lantis. "They are personified by a monarch to whom everything is ascribed, and to whom is assigned several centuries of life." ("Ancient History of the East," Lenormant and Chevallier, vol. ii., p. 295.), Ad came from the northeast. "He married a thousand wives, had four thousand sons, and lived twelve hundred years. His descendants multiplied considerably. After his death his sons Shadid and Shedad reigned in succession over the Adites. In the time of the latter the people of Ad were a thousand tribes, each composed of several thousands of men. Great conquests are attributed to Shedad; he subdued, it is said, all Arabia and Irak. The migration of the Canaanites, their establishment in Syria, and the Shepherd invasion of Egypt are, by many Arab writers, attributed to an expedition of Shedad." (Ibid., p. 296.)
Shedad built a palace ornamented with superb columns, and surrounded by a magnificent garden. It was called Irem. "It was a paradise that Shedad had built in imitation of the celestial Paradise, of whose delights he had heard." ("Ancient History of the East," p. 296.) In other words, an ancient, sun-worshipping, powerful, and conquering race overran Arabia at the very dawn of history; they were the sons of Adlantis: their king tried to create a palace and garden of Eden like that of Atlantis.
The Adites are remembered by the Arabians as a great and civilized race. "They are depicted as men of gigantic stature; their strength was equal to their size, and they easily moved enormous blocks of stone." (Ibid.) They were architects and builders. "They raised many monuments of their power; and hence, among the Arabs, arose the custom of calling great ruins "buildings of the Adites." To this day the Arabs say "as old as Ad." In the Koran allusion is made to the edifices they built on "high places for vain uses;" expressions proving that their "idolatry was considered to have been tainted with Sabæism or star-worship." (Ibid.) "In these legends," says Lenormant, "we find traces of a wealthy nation, constructors of great buildings, with an advanced civilization, analogous to that of Chaldea, professing a religion similar to the Babylonian; a nation, in short, with whom material progress was allied to great moral depravity and obscene rites. These facts must be true and strictly historical, for they are everywhere met with among the Cushites, as among the Canaanites, their brothers by origin."
Nor is there wanting a great catastrophe which destroys the whole Adite nation, except a very few who escape because they had renounced idolatry. A black cloud assails their country, from which proceeds a terrible hurricane (the water-spout?) which sweeps away everything.
The first Adites were followed by a second Adite race; probably the colonists who had escaped the Deluge. The centre of its power was the country of Sheba proper. This empire endured for a thousand years. The Adites are represented upon the Egyptian monuments as very much like the Egyptians themselves; in other words, they were a red or sunburnt race: their great temples were pyramidal, surmounted by buildings. ("Ancient History of the East," p. 321.) "The Sabæans," says Agatharchides ("De Mari Erythræo," p. 102), "have in their houses an incredible number of vases, and utensils of all sorts, of gold and silver, beds and tripods of silver, and all the furniture of astonishing richness. Their buildings have porticos with columns sheathed with gold, or surmounted by capitals of silver. On the friezes, ornaments, and the framework of the doors they place plates of gold incrusted with precious stones."
All this reminds one of the descriptions given by the Spaniards of the temples of the sun in Peru.
The Adites worshipped the gods of the Phœnicians under names but slightly changed; "their religion was especially solar... It was originally a religion without images, without idolatry, and without a priesthood." (Ibid., p. 325.) They "worshipped the sun from the tops of pyramids." (Ibid.) They believed in the immortality of the soul.
In all these things we see resemblances to the Atlanteans.
The great Ethiopian or Cushite Empire, which in the earliest ages prevailed, as Mr. Rawlinson says, "from the Caucasus to the Indian Ocean, from the shores of the Mediterranean to the mouth of the Ganges," was the empire of Dionysos, the empire of "Ad," the empire of Atlantis. El Eldrisi called the language spoken to this day by the Arabs of Mahrah, in Eastern Arabia, "the language of the people of Ad," and Dr. J. H. Carter, in the Bombay Journal of July, 1847, says, "It is the softest and sweetest language I have ever heard." It would be interesting to compare this primitive tongue with the languages of Central America.
An extract from The Book of Jubilees, note the reference to the "Sea of Atil" and the second sea Mauk located to the west of Atil. Note that we have mentions of 2 seas separated by the Sicilian Land bridge in the Mediterranean Basin which was dammed in the antediluvian world of pre deluge.
Jubilees 8:13 "And for Ham came out as the second portion, beyond the Gejon (Nile), toward the south, to the right of the garden, and it proceeds to all the fire mountains, and goes toward the west to the sea of Atiland goes west until it reaches the sea of Mauk the one of which everything descends that is destroyed.
The god Thoth of the Egyptians, who was the god of a foreign country, and who invented letters, was called At-hothes.
We turn now to another ancient race, the Indo-European family--the Aryan race.
In Sanscrit Adim, means first. Among the Hindoos the first man was Ad-ima, his wife was Heva. They dwelt upon an island, said to be Ceylon; they left the island and reached the main-land, when, by a great convulsion of nature, their communication with the parent land was forever cut off. (See "Bible in India.")
The UB extract of a Andite Group that traveled to Ceylon this carrying the legend of Atlantis.
PAPER 80 - ANDITE EXPANSION IN THE OCCIDENT, Oct 19 2000
- line 48: The purer indigo elements moved southward to the forests of central Africa, where they have ever since remained. The more mixed groups spread out in three directions: The superior tribes to the west migrated to Spain and thence to adjacent parts of Europe, forming the nucleus of the later Mediterranean long-headed brunet races. The least progressive division to the east of the Sahara plateau migrated to Arabia and thence through northern Mesopotamia and India to faraway Ceylon. The central group moved north and east to the Nile valley and into Palestine.
Here we seem to have a recollection of the destruction of Atlantis.
Mr. Bryant says, "Ad and Ada signify the first." The Persians called the first man "Ad-amah." "Adon" was one of the names of the Supreme God of the Phœnicians; from it was derived the name of the Greek god "Ad-onis." The Arv-ad of Genesis was the Ar-Ad of the Cushites; it is now known as Ru-Ad. It is a series of connected cities twelve miles in length, along the coast, full of the most massive and gigantic ruins.
Sir William Jones gives the tradition of the Persians as to the earliest ages. He says: "Moshan assures us that in the opinion of the best informed Persians the first monarch of Iran, and of the whole earth, was Mashab-Ad; that he received from the Creator, and promulgated among men a sacred book, in a heavenly language, to which the Mussulman author gives the Arabic title of 'Desatir,' or 'Regulations.' Mashab-Ad was, in the opinion of the ancient Persians, the person left at the end of the last great cycle, and consequently the father of the present world. He and his wife having survived the former cycle, were blessed with a numerous progeny; he planted gardens, invented ornaments, forged weapons, taught men to take the fleece from sheep and make clothing; he built cities, constructed palaces, fortified towns, and introduced arts and commerce."
We have already seen that the primal gods of this people are identical with the gods of the Greek mythology, and were originally kings of Atlantis. But it seems that these ancient divinities are grouped together as "the Aditya;" and in this name "Ad-itya" we find a strong likeness to the Semitic "Adites," and another reminiscence of Atlantis, or Adlantis. In corroboration of this view we find,
1. The gods who are grouped together as the Aditya are the most ancient in the Hindoo mythology.
2. They are all gods of light, or solar gods. (Whitney's Oriental and Linguistic Studies," p. 39.) (Another example of the Nodite Parthenon of the Gods in Dalamantia and influences of the Egyptian culture.)
3. There are twelve of them. (Ibid.)
4. These twelve gods presided over twelve months in the year.
5. They are a dim recollection of a very remote past. Says Whitney, "It seems as if here was an attempt on the part of the Indian religion to take a new development in a moral direction, which a change in the character and circumstances of the people has caused to fail in the midst, and fall back again into forgetfulness, while yet half finished and indistinct." (Ibid.)
6. These gods are called "the sons of Aditi," just as in the Bible we have allusions to "the sons of Adab," who were the first metallurgists and musicians. "Aditi is not a goddess. She is addressed as a queen's daughter, she of fair children."
7. The Aditya "are elevated above all imperfections; they do not sleep or wink." The Greeks represented their gods as equally wakeful and omniscient. "Their character is all truth; they hate and punish guilt." We have seen the same traits ascribed by the Greeks to the Atlantean kings.
8. The sun is sometimes addressed as an Aditya.
9. Among the Aditya is Varuna, the equivalent of Uranos, whose identification with Atlantis I have shown. In the vedas Varuna is "the god of the ocean." (The construction of Atlantis was built by Van and Amadon.)
10. The Aditya represent an earlier and purer form of religion: "While in hymns to the other deities long: life, wealth, power, are the objects commonly prayed for, of the Aditya is craved purity, forgiveness of sin, freedom from guilt, and repentance." ("Oriental and Linguistic Studies," p. 43.)
11. The Aditya, like the Adites, are identified with the doctrine of the immortality of the soul. Yama is the god of the abode beyond the grave. In the Persian story he appears as Yima, and "is made ruler of the golden age and founder of the Paradise." (Ibid., p. 45.) (See "Zamna," p. 167 ante.)
In view of all these facts, one cannot doubt that the legends of the "sons of Ad," "the Adites," and "the Aditya," all refer to Atlantis.
Mr. George Smith, in the Chaldean account of the Creation (p. 78), deciphered from the Babylonian tablets, shows that there was an original race of men at the beginning of Chaldean history, a dark race, the Zalmat-qaqadi, who were called Ad-mi, or Ad-ami; they were the race "who had fallen," and were contradistinguished from "the Sarku, or light race." The "fall" probably refers to their destruction by a deluge, in consequence of their moral degradation and the indignation of the gods. The name Adam is used in these legends, but as the name of a race, not of a man. (The Nodites and the Adamites have similar history. The Nodites are the result of a Fallen race and Adam and Eve are also victims of a fallen estate. I would say that the original race is probably that of the Nodites which can be confused of the later appearing Adamites out of the 2nd Garden.
Genesis (chap. v., 2) distinctly says that God created man male and female, and "called their name Adam." That is to say, the people were the Ad-ami, the people of "Ad," or Atlantis. "The author of the Book of Genesis," says M. Schœbel, "in speaking of the men who were swallowed up by the Deluge, always describes them as 'Haadam,' 'Adamite humanity.'" The race of Cain lived and multiplied far away from the land of Seth; in other words, far from the land destroyed by the Deluge. Josephus, who gives us the primitive traditions of the Jews, tells us (chap. ii., p. 42) that "Cain travelled over many countries" before he came to the land of Nod. The Bible does not tell us that the race of Cain perished in the Deluge. "Cain went out from the presence of Jehovah;" he did not call on his name; the people that were destroyed were the "sons of Jehovah." All this indicates that large colonies had been sent out by the mother-land before it sunk in the sea.
Across the ocean we find the people of Guatemala claiming their descent from a goddess called At-tit, or grandmother, who lived for four hundred years, and first taught the worship of the true God, which they afterward forgot. (Bancroft's "Native Races," vol. iii., p. 75.) While the famous Mexican calendar stone shows that the sun was commonly called tonatiuh but when it was referred to as the god of the Deluge it was then called Atl-tona-ti-uh, or At-onatiuh. (Valentini's "Mexican Calendar Stone," art. Maya Archæology, p. 15.)
Here is the reason why there is a memory of Atlantis in the Americas
PAPER 78 - THE VIOLET RACE AFTER THE DAYS OF ADAM, Oct 19 2000
line 104: One hundred and thirty-two of this race, embarking in a fleet of small boats from Japan, eventually reached South America and by intermarriage with the natives of the Andes established the ancestry of the later rulers of the Incas. They crossed the Pacific by easy stages, tarrying on the many islands they found along the way. The islands of the Polynesian group were both more numerous and larger then than now, and these Andite sailors, together with some who followed them, biologically modified the native groups in transit. Many flourishing centers of civilization grew up on these now submerged lands as a result of Andite penetration. Easter Island was long a religious and administrative center of one of these lost groups. But of the Andites who navigated the Pacific of long ago none but the one hundred and thirty-two ever reached the mainland of the Americas.
We thus find the sons of Ad at the base of all the most ancient races of men, to wit, the Hebrews, the Arabians, the Chaldeans, the Hindoos, the Persians, the Egyptians, the Ethiopians, the Mexicans, and the Central Americans; testimony that all these races traced their beginning back to a dimly remembered Ad-lantis.
A glimpse of the very early Nodite colonies after the expulsion of the Adam and Eve from 1st Eden and before the deluge of the Mediterranean.
PAPER 80 - ANDITE EXPANSION IN THE OCCIDENT, Oct 19 2000
line 33: In the eastern trough of the Mediterranean the Nodites had established one of their most extensive cultures and from these centers had penetrated somewhat into southern Europe but more especially into northern Africa. The broad-headed Nodite-Andonite Syrians very early introduced pottery and agriculture in connection with their settlements on the slowly rising Nile delta. They also imported sheep, goats, cattle, and other domesticated animals and brought in greatly improved methods of metalworking, Syria then being the center of that industry.
Andites structures built in Egypt
PAPER 80 - ANDITE EXPANSION IN THE OCCIDENT, Oct 19 2000
line 106: The Egyptians very early assembled their municipal deities into an elaborate national system of gods. They developed an extensive theology and had an equally extensive but burdensome priesthood. Several different leaders sought to revive the remnants of the early religious teachings of the Sethites, but these endeavors were short-lived. The Andites built the first stone structures in Egypt. The first and most exquisite of the stone pyramids was erected by Imhotep, an Andite architectural genius, while serving as prime minister. Previous buildings had been constructed of brick, and while many stone structures had been erected in different parts of the world, this was the first in Egypt. But the art of building steadily declined from the days of this great architect.
References to the earlier settlement near Carthage and of an Andite colony 5000BC
PAPER 80 - ANDITE EXPANSION IN THE OCCIDENT, Oct 19 2000
- line 130: Another great colony settled on the Mediterranean near the later site of Carthage. And from north Africa large numbers of Andites entered Spain and later mingled in Switzerland with their brethren who had earlier come to Italy from the Aegean Islands.
Apparently there is not a good link to view.
Here is a link to another Andite settlement on the coast of Africa called Lixus notice the Andite masonry resemblance like those of the Inca construction. Apparently this was built by the Carthigians.
Refaim is another term used for the race that Og originated from.
