The Rise of Babylon – The New Atlantis.


Part 2.

The destruction of Etemenanki would not stop man however. Three rulers have already tried to rebuild it. Nebuchadnezzar tried to rebuild it and went
insane. Alexander the great tried to rebuild it but the remaining bricks hindered it’s rebuilding so he ordered it to be demolished so it could be
rebuilt. Work began but Alexander died before it could be finished. Antiochus tried and while making a sacrifice for it’s rebuilding he tripped and
fell and ordered it to be demolished.

Etemenanki wasn’t the last ziggurat though. There were many after it all over the world. We find them in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Africa, Mesoamerica,
South America, North America and Indonesia. After the Flood, Semjaza and the watchers under him were cast into the earth along with the spirits of the
Nephilim. God destroyed the cosmic tree at it’s top, but it’s trunk still reached down into the earth and this is where Babylon rises up again.

There is a group in the Bible known as the Rephaim. The Bible uses this name in two senses. The Rephaim were real people in the land, they were giants
like the Nephilim, but they were also treated as spirits of great warriors and kings from the underworld. So the same word refers to spirits and
Nephilim.

Amar Annus has made a tremendous discovery which I will rely on heavily below, in linking the Rephaim to the Titans of Greece in his Journal “Are
There Greek Rephaim”. Og, the great Rephaim and Nephilim king in the Bible, is also known as Ogygus in Greek and sometimes as the king of the
Titans. According to Thallos, a first century Greek historian, Og is none other than Kronos. So here we already have a strong correlation between the
Rephaim and the Titans. There was another Titan king in Greek mythology known as Merops the ruler of the Island Cos. On that island is a sanctuary to
Asclepius the healer. As Astour explains…

“the oldest king of the island [Cos] was Merops; after the sudden death of his wife, the nymph Echemeia, slain by Artemis, he attempted suicide,
but was changed by Hera into an eagle, and placed in the sky as the constellation Aquila. (Astour 1965: 247)

“His son Eumelos and the three children of the latter worshiped only the earth and did not recognize any other gods; they insulted Hermes,
Athena, and Artemis, who visited them, and were therefore changed into birds. Worshiping the earth alone is an obvious relic of the chthonic nature of
the entire Meropid family”(Astour 1965: 247)

Astour traces this idea of the Meropid family being turned into birds back to the Babylonian view of owls as evil spirits. Astour says…
[They were] “dual: like the spirits of the dead, whom the owl personifies, it is considered both a giver of abundance and an object of fright.”
(Astour 1965: 244)

Astour further ties the Meropid family to the Rephaim…

“Their name puzzled scholars: they could see no relationship between spirits of the dead and the notion of medicine, implicated in the root of
their name rapha’ “to heal,” whence rophe “physician.”There were proposals to derive their name from the root rapha “to be weak, to go
down,”which was believed to indicate the weakness and immateriality of the shadows in Hades. But there is no need to distort the root, depriving it
of it’s radical aleph. Those who are amazed by the etymology of Rephaim from rapha’ simply do not understand the organic association between the
notions of the Nether World – the chthonic cycle – and of healing, i.e. granting health, strength, fertility, and fecundity” (Astour 1965:
233-34)

Spronk affirms the same ancient near east derivation…
“The common ancient Near Eastern conception of the spirits of the dead taking the physical form of birds is also attested in the literature of
Ugarit. The rpum are described as fluttering (ndd); they are startled like birds (ndd D-stem). Apparently they were believed to come like birds to the
holy place to enter the company of the gods.” (Spronk 1986: 167.)

The Rpum (Rephaim) were seen as warriors and healers who could bestow their power to the living making a living Rephaim.

“As rpum the deified dead appear as warriors, but more important seems to be their help as healers and in securing the welfare of the city. They
posses healing power like the rpu par excellence, Ball, who healed, i.e. revived them. This power, which can also be given to the living king, is the
power to overcome death.” (Spronk 1986: 195.)

I cannot quote everything from Amar Annus’s work, but he makes a very strong tie between the Greek Titans and the Rephaim, which is publicly
available. Now when God destroyed the top of this cosmic tree mankind was cut off from this gateway to “heaven”. Mankind could no longer seek to
be divinely infused from the heavens, however, these fallen watchers were not gone, they became the chthonic gods. The gateway along this cosmic tree
became reversed from reaching into the heavens to reaching into the earth for the healing and divine infusing of the Rephaim (Titans). The following
is one such incantation found among the Amorites, a tribe of the giants.

“You are summoned, O Rephaim of the earth,
You are invoked, O council of the Didanu!
Ulkn, the Raphi’, is summoned,
Trmn, the Raphi’, is summoned,
Sdn-w-rdn is summoned,
Ṯr ‘llmn is summoned,
the Rephaim of old are summoned!
You are summoned, O Rephaim of the earth,
You are invoked, O council of the Didanu!” (The great inception part 8 www.skywatchtv.com)( KTU 1.161)

Hesiod in his Works and Days writes…

“First of all the deathless gods who dwell on Olympus made a golden race of mortal men who lived in the time of Cronos when he was reigning in
heaven. And they lived like gods without sorrow of heart, remote and free from toil and grief: miserable age rested not on them; but with legs and
arms never failing they made merry with feasting beyond the reach of all evils. When they died, it was as though they were overcome with sleep, and
they had all good things; for the fruitful earth unforced bare them fruit abundantly and without stint. They dwelt in ease and peace upon their lands
with many good things, rich in flocks and loved by the blessed gods. But after earth had covered this generation — they are called pure spirits
dwelling on the earth, and are kindly, delivering from harm, and guardians of mortal men; for they roam everywhere over the earth, clothed in mist and
keep watch on judgements and cruel deeds, givers of wealth; for this royal right also they received;” (Hesiod, works and days)
