Changes in The Book of Genesis (Compared to The Epic of Gilgamesh, Book I)
Which both occur 'before The Flood'...
Changes in The Book of Genesis compared to The Epic of Gilgamesh, Book I, which both occur 'before The Flood':
- All homosexual undertones removed (Gilgamesh and Enkidu, his femme, beast-man, love interest, are fused into Adam, and separated again later in The New Testament as God The Father and Jesus [Both Jesus and Enkidu 'challenge the old order'])
- Sex is blamed on the woman and the penis, externalizing male responsibility, but she does gain a name in the process, being called "Eve" and not simply "The Harlot"
- Woman is made inferior to man metaphysically, with Eve coming from Adam's rib, whereas in The Epic of Gilgamesh The Harlot gives half of her clothing to Enkidu to civilize him, and it was Enkidu who had to be created to check the power of Gilgamesh
- Adam and Eve cover their nakedness in shame, whereas Enkidu can no longer speak with the wild beasts, or run with them, after an entire week of love making with "The Harlot"
- The 'virgin birth' of Jesus is still in the future, but it corresponds to the ius primae noctis enjoyed by Gilgamesh prior to meeting Enkidu, who fights for women to have the right to choose whether they fuck The King before their husband, (I mean Joseph...) which is clearly a form of paternity encryption...
Read Pre-Christian Mythology you will unencrypt the stories that rule your mind. Next up: The Parallels between "Santa Baby" and the droit du seigneur -- was baby Jesus the present Enkidu prevented Gilgamesh / Santa from delivering? This is what happens if you get married on Christmas day, beware!
Someone else will have to explain to me where Lilith fits into this...
You're making me want to read the Epic of Gilgamesh...
Also, framing Jesus' virgin birth as "in the future" assumes a Christian interpretation :P Genesis is most definitely pre-Christian itself.
ChatGPT's take: "While Lilith is not mentioned in the Book of Genesis, she appears in later Jewish texts, including the Talmud and the Midrash. According to these texts, Lilith was Adam's first wife, created from the same dust as Adam. However, Lilith refused to be subservient to Adam and left the Garden of Eden. She is often depicted as a demon or a seductress in later Jewish folklore.
The Epic of Gilgamesh does not mention Lilith either, as she is a figure from Jewish mythology. However, there are some similarities between Lilith and Enkidu's wild nature in the Epic of Gilgamesh, as they both represent a rejection of societal norms and a connection to primal, untamed energy.
It's important to note that while there may be similarities and influences between different mythologies, each mythology should be understood on its own terms and within its own cultural context."
