THE SKINNY ON THE BIBLE’S CREATION STORY: & its links with the Marriage ritual By Andre Austin Genesis chapter 1: As it appears in the Genesis creation story the Heavens & Earth were One until they were split and divided. In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth… And God said, Let there be an expanse (Sky space between) between the waters to separate water… And God said let the water under the sky, let dry ground appear called Land/Earth As the verses quoted above clearly show, the dividing of the “waters from the waters” refers to the separation of water above the firmament (mountain) from the water below the Firmament (mountain). Genesis Chapter 2: Did the heavens and earth have Children????? It states “These are the generations (production) of the Heavens (Nut) and Earth (Geb”. In Egyptian mythology, “The water of life cometh into heaven, the water of Life cometh on the earth. The sky catches fire (Atum) before thee, the earth quaked before thee, at the hands of the children of God. The two mountains (mound) are cleft (split or divide) the god appeared, and the god hath the mastery over his own body”- Osiris & The Egyptian Resurrection Volume 2 p.361. This is the same as 2 Peter 3:5 “God’s word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water” which was referring to Genesis 1:6-7. This firmament arising out of the waters is the primeval mountain of Egyptian myth. This process of halving (separation) is the basis of Nile Valley mathematics and contemporary biological science which is associated with the process of cellular division called mitosis. This concept was expressed in ancient Egyptian text which stated: Iam one that transforms Into two Iam two that transforms Into four Iam four that transforms Into Eight (commoninly known as Noah’s family of 8) After this Iam One (One flesh in the bible see Genesis 2:21-24) repeated in Matthew 19:4-6 See Nile Valley Contribution to Civilization By Anthony Browder p.123 The Egyptian religion is a pure monotheism , which manifested itself externally by symbolic polytheism. In the Egyptian coffin text 80 Atum said he created Nut so that “she could be over my head and Geb could marry her,. In other words, the Egyptians saw the union of Earth an heaven as the basis for marriage, and this principle is carried over into genesis with Adam (Earth/Geb) and Eve (Sky/Nut). “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother (House) and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh, so they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what god has joined together, let man not separate” (Matthew 19:4-7”. Doesn’t this sounds like Atum’s separation and uniting back with self. Plus Het-heru (Hathor) means House of Horus. In Egypt when a man marries, he is “Housed”-he becomes settled”-Egyptian Divinities By Moustafa Gadalla p.81 Jesus and Mary are symbolic of Adam & Eve and so are any Male & Female that untites together in marry we are just symbolic representations on this continued ritual. And at some time in the future we will unite in One spiritual body of Light AS-ONE.
