In c.400BC, a new monotheistic sect of Egyptian priests, known as Jews, "Israelites", "Hebrews", or "Cohens" (Herodotus, 450BC), remade the Egyptian "Atum" (god who makes man) born in green cropland Δ-location of "Heliopolis", where the four tributaries (White river, Blue river, Damietta branch, Rosetta branch) of the Nile river converge, at the tip of the Nile Delta, into the myth of "Adam" (man made by god) created at garden of "Eden", where the four mythical Bible rivers converge:
- “The battle in Amenta was not only fought betwixt the Apap [Apep] of darkness and the sun-god Ra. When the two brothers Sut [Set] and Horus were repeated in the solar mythos, as the sons of Atum, the conflict was continued for possession of the garden [Garden of Eden]. This was now the motive of the warfare. Previously it was for the water of the inundation or light in the moon. Now it was for the water and the tree of life in the Aarru-garden. In one version of the mythos, Sut is the murderer of the good brother as Osiris. In the other, Sut [Set] pierces and puts out the eye of Horus. This is represented as the contest between Cain and Abel, the two sons of Adam, in the book of Genesis.”
The following are related quotes:
- “Do you, good people, believe that Adam and Eve were created in the Garden of Eden and that they were forbidden to eat from the tree of knowledge? I do. The church has always been afraid of that tree. It still is afraid of knowledge. Some of you say religion makes people happy. So does laughing gas. So does whiskey. I believe in the brain of man.”
