The term "fiery flying serpent" is an English translation of the Hebrew words שרף מעופף, shārāp (a "fiery serpent") me‘ōpêp ("flying").[1]

seraph, seraphim majestic beings with 6 wings, human hands or voices in attendance upon God


21 So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, of every kind, with which the waters swarm, and every winged bird of every kind. And God saw that it was good.
26 Then God said, “Let us (Creator+Seraph/Naga) make humankind[c] in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the earth,[d] and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” (but not sea monsters)

In India, nagas are considered nature spirits and the protectors of springs, wells and rivers. They bring rain, and thus fertility, but are also thought to bring disasters such as floods and drought. Most Kaliyatran (Harathi people) believe that the superior God directs the actions of the nagas. In this tradition, nagas are snakes that may take human form, and tend to be very curious. Accordingly, nāgas are only malevolent to humans when they have been mistreated, since they are susceptible to mankind's disrespectful actions in relation to the environment. They are also associated with waters—rivers, lakes, seas, and wells—and are generally regarded as guardians of treasureIt is also commonly believed that some nagas, those most interested in human affairs, live in underground cities, are capable of speech and can use their heavenly powers to control weather and assume humanoid form at will.

Negus is a noun derived from the Eritrean and northern ethiopia Semitic root ngś, meaning "to reign". The title has subsequently been used to translate the words "king" or "emperor" in Biblical and other literature.

The name "Gigantes" is usually taken to imply "earth-born",[6] and Hesiod's Theogony makes this explicit by having the Giants be the offspring of Gaia (Earth). According to Hesiod, Gaia, mating with Uranus, bore many children: the first generation of Titans The 6th–5th century BC lyric poet Bacchylides calls the Giants "sons of the Earth".[16] Later the term "gegeneis" ("earthborn") became a common epithet of the Giants.[17] The first century Latin writer Hyginus has the Giants being the offspring of Gaia and Tartarus, another primordial Greek deity. Over time, descriptions of the Giants make them less human, more monstrous and more "gigantic". According to Apollodorus the Giants had great size and strength, a frightening appearance, with long hair and beards and scaly feet.[34] Ovid makes them "serpent-footed" with a "hundred arms",[35] and Nonnus has them "serpent-haired".

    The most recent common ancestor for humans and chickens is thought to have been some kind of primitive reptile that lived more than 310 million years ago. The information from the chicken genome should paint a clearer picture of this divergence, and provide information about when mammals lost certain genes, and why.

    Analysis of the data is only just beginning, but several surprising results have already emerged from the project. For example, it had been thought that chickens lack a sense of smell, but the large number of olfactory genes in the sequence suggests otherwise.

    The gene for keratin, the protein that makes up hair and fingernails in people and beaks and feathers in chickens, also grabbed researchers' attention. According to Christopher Ponting, a functional geneticist at the University of Oxford, UK, and a member of the consortium, keratin is thought to have arisen from a common source in both mammals and birds. Yet the chicken sequence looks very different from the mammal keratin genes known so far, raising the possibility that keratin production might have evolved twice.

    https://www.businessinsider.com/how-similar-genetically-are-chickens-to-humans-2016-5
    As it turns out, about 60% of chicken genes have a human gene counterpart.
    In a 2004 paper published in the journal Nature, the International Chicken Genome Sequencing Consortium found that although a chicken doesn't have as much DNA as a human, it has about the same amount of genes. And in those genes, there were stronger similarities to human genes when it came down to basic cell structures and how those cells work. When it came to the genes that program our reproductive and immune systems, the chicken genes were less similar.

    Genesis 3:16

    To the woman he (baal/marduk) said, "I will greatly increase your pangs in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children
    https://www.livescience.com/22437-earliest-mammals-egg-layers.html

    Despite evidence that the earliest examples of creatures such as mammals and reptiles gave birth to live young, they actually may have laid eggs, a scientist argues.

    "These eggs are probably out there, but nobody has looked hard enough for them or they have not been recognized," says University of Bonn, Germany, paleobiologist P. Martin Sander, who details his analysis in the Aug. 17 issue of the journal Science.

    Both mammals and reptiles envelop their developing embryos in protective layers, something that ultimately helped their ancestors conquer the land and that still helps their offspring survive. Mammals often keep these membrane-bundled offspring within them, giving birth to live young, while reptiles generally lay their membrane-swaddled progeny in eggs.

    The fact that mammals and reptiles wrap their embryos within these defenses makes them known as amniotes, which first evolved about 310 million years ago. The fossil record of amniotic eggs and embryos is paltry, leaving scientists little knowledge about when, how and why they evolved.

    https://www.pbs.org/newshour/science/naked-lizard-proves-hair-scales-and-feathers-descend-from-single-reptilian-ancestor-study-says

    A decades-long scientific debate is finally resolved, thanks to a naked lizard.

    Scientists have uncovered the link between the hair of mammals, the feathers of birds and the scales of reptiles. And the discovery, published today in the journal Science Advances, suggests all of these animals, including humans, descended from a single reptilian ancestor approximately 320 million years ago.

    Before this study, the scientific community was divided over how hair, feathers and scales evolved. Developmentally speaking, these different “skin appendages” start almost identically, but then appeared to hit a crossroad. While birds and mammals form placodes — thickened bits in the skin that blossom feathers or hairs — reptiles showed no signs of the feature.

    We have this deep heritage between reptiles, birds and mammals—a 320 million year old heritage.
    This baffled scientists, as research showed birds being closer relatives of crocodiles and other reptiles than mammals. By not having this placode, reptiles created a kink in the evolutionary (hair)line.

    The contradiction split scientists into two camps. Some argued that skin appendages developed independently in all species, so birds and mammals just happened to form the same system. Others stated all species possess a molecular placode — a series of genes that spawn hair, feathers and scales — but reptile skin simply fails to sprout a physical structure.

    Then Milinkovitch stumbled upon a naked lizard: a mutant form of the scaleless Australian bearded dragon (Pogona vitticeps). He and Nicolas Di-Poï, biologist of the Institute of Biotechnology at the University of Helsinki, found mutant bearded dragons did not express ectodysplasin-A (EDA)—a gene responsible for forming skin appendages, specifically placodes
  • KingNaidKingNaid Member UncommonPosts: 1,363

    Milinkovitch and Di-Poï compared these naked dragons with their scale-covered counterparts (plus, one lizard species that crosses between the two). They found that the amount of EDA present in cells correlated with size of scales. More EDA meant longer scales; no EDA, no scales.

    As the team studied the EDA gene, they discovered the solution to the evolutionary debate: Contrary to previous findings, reptiles do have physical placodes.

    “They were always there,” Milinkovitch said. “We were just looking in the right place at the right time.”

    With this discovery, the evolutionary kink disappears. All amniotes — creatures that have an extra membrane or barrier around their eggs, including most mammals, birds and reptiles — can trace their lineage back to a common reptilian ancestor. This includes bearded dragons, chickens, mice, and humans, just to name a few.

    “We have this deep heritage between reptiles, birds and mammals — a 320 million year old heritage,” Milinkovitch said.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rex_mutation
    The rex mutation is a genetic variation in mammals that results in soft curly fur. These effects are due to changes in the structure of groups of hairs and cross-section of individual hairs. The Rexed coats are unusual but occur (and have been preserved) in cats, rats, rabbits, horses, and dogs. The mutations, infrequent and spontaneous, occur in a variety of genes and genetic regulatory structures. The diversity of genetic factors results in variable coat thickness/density and fur length.

    Moloch[a] (also Molech, Mollok, Milcom, or Malcam) is the biblical name of a Canaanite god associated with child sacrifice, through fire or war.

    The name Moloch results from a dysphemic vocalisation in the Second Temple period of a theonym based on the root mlk, "king". There are a number of Canaanite gods with names based on this root, which became summarily associated with Moloch, including biblical Malkam (מַלְכָּם‎) "Great King" (KJV Milcom), which appears to refer to a god of the Ammonites, as well as Tyrian Melqart and others.

    Rabbinical tradition depicted Moloch as a bronze statue heated with fire into which the victims were thrown. This has been associated with reports by Greco-Roman authors on the child sacrifices in Carthage to Baal Hammon.[1] Archaeological excavations since the 1920s have produced evidence for child sacrifice in Carthage as well as inscriptions including the term MLK, either a theonym or a technical term associated with sacrificial rites. In interpretatio graeca, the Phoenician god was identified with Cronus, due to the parallel mytheme of Cronus devouring his children.

    Otto Eissfeldt in 1935 argued that mlk was not to be taken as a theonym at all but as a term for a type of fire sacrifice, and that *lĕmōlek "as a molk-sacrifice" had been reinterpreted as the name of a Canaanite idol following the Deuteronomic reform under Josiah (r. 640–609 BC). According to Eissfeldt, this 7th-century reform abolished the child sacrifice that had been happening.

    Moloch has been used figuratively in English literature from John Milton's Paradise Lost (1667) to Allen Ginsberg's "Howl" (1955), to refer to a person or thing demanding or requiring a very costly sacrifice.

    yahweh

    ""1869, hypothetical RECONSTRUCTION of the tetragrammaton YHWH (see Jehovah), based on the assumption that the tetragrammaton is the IMPERFECTIVE of Hebrew verb HAWAH, earlier form of Hayah "was," in the sense of "the one who is, the existing.""

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moloch

    Biblical Hebrew מלך (mlk) usually stands for מֶלֶךְ‎ melek "king" (Akkadian malku), but when vocalized as מֹלֶךְ‎ mōlek in the Masoretic Text, it has been traditionally understood as a proper name. While the received Masoretic text dates to the Middle Ages, the existence of the form Ancient Greek: Μολοχ (Molokh, whence Vulgate Moloch) in the Septuagint establishes that the distinction dates to the Second Temple period.

    Moloch has been traditionally interpreted as the name of a god, possibly a god surnamed "the king" (cf. adon "lord", baʿal "master"), but pejoratively mispronounced as Molek instead of Melek, using the vocalisation of Hebrew בּשֶׁת‎ bosheth "shame",[2] distinguishing it from the title of melek "king", written identically in the consonantal text, which is also frequently given to Yahweh.

    Thus, in Psalm 5, the מלכי mlk-y ("my mlk") of the Hebrew text is vocalized מַלְכִּי malk-ī and translated ὁ βασιλεύς μου ("my king") in the Septuagint; by contrast, in Amos 5:26, מלככם mlk-km ("your (plural) mlk") is vocalized מַלְכְּכֶם malk-chem ("your king") but translated Μολοχ ὑμῶν ("your Moloch") in the Septuagint.[3]

    The name of the god of the Ammonites is also given as מַלְכָּם malkam, rendered as Milcom in KJV. In 1 Kings 11:7, לְמֹלֶךְ שִׁקֻּץ בְּנֵי עַמֹּֽון‎ (KJV: "for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon"), the Septuagint has τῷ βασιλεῖ αὐτῶν εἰδώλῳ υἱῶν Αμμων ("for their king, idol of the sons of Ammon"), while in 1 Kings 11:33 לְמִלְכֹּם אֱלֹהֵי בְנֵֽי־עַמֹּון‎ (KJV: "Milcom the god of the children of Ammon") is translated τῷ βασιλεῖ αὐτῶν προσοχθίσματι υἱῶν Αμμων ("for their king, the abomination of the sons of Ammon").

    Later commentators have compared these accounts with similar ones from Greek and Latin sources speaking of the offering of children by fire as sacrifices in the Punic city of Carthage, a Phoenician colony. Cleitarchus, Diodorus Siculus and Plutarch all mention burning of children as an offering to Cronus or Saturn, that is to Baal Hammon, the chief god of Carthage

    In Greek mythology, Cronus, Cronos, or Kronos (/ˈkroʊnəs/ or /ˈkroʊnɒs/, US: /-oʊs/, from Greek: Κρόνος, Krónoς), was the leader and youngest of the first generation of Titans, the divine descendants of Uranus, the sky, and Gaia, the earth. He overthrew his father and ruled during the mythological Golden Age, until he was overthrown by his own son Zeus and imprisoned in Tartarus. According to Plato, however, the deities Phorcys, Cronus, and Rhea were the eldest children of Oceanus and Tethys.[1]

    Cronus was usually depicted with a harpe, scythe or a sickle, which was the instrument he used to castrate and depose Uranus, his father. In Athens, on the twelfth day of the Attic month of Hekatombaion, a festival called Kronia was held in honour of Cronus to celebrate the harvest, suggesting that, as a result of his association with the virtuous Golden Age, Cronus continued to preside as a patron of the harvest. Cronus was also identified in classical antiquity with the Roman deity Saturn.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japheth
    Japheth /ˈdʒeɪfɛθ/ (Hebrew: יֶפֶת Yép̄eṯ, in pausa יָפֶת Yā́p̄eṯ; Greek: Ἰάφεθ Iápheth; Latin: Iafeth, Iapheth, Iaphethus, Iapetus), is one of the three sons of Noah in the Book of Genesis, in which he plays a role in the story of Noah's drunkenness and the curse of Ham

    In Greek mythology, Iapetus (/aɪˈæpɪtəs/)[1] (also Japetus (Ancient Greek: Ἰαπετός Iapetos))[2] was a Titan, the son of Uranus and Gaia[3][4][5][6] and father of Atlas, Prometheus, Epimetheus, and Menoetius. He was also called the father of Buphagus[7] and Anchiale[8] in other sources.

    Iapetus has been equated with Japheth (יֶפֶת) the son of Noah as the progenitor of mankind based on the similarity of their names and the tradition. Iapetus was linked to Japheth by 17th-century theologian Matthew Poole,[9] Robert Graves,[10] and John Pairman Brown.[11]

    Iapetus ("the Piercer") is the one Titan mentioned by Homer in the Iliad as being in Tartarus with Cronus. He is a brother of Cronus, who ruled the world during the Golden Age.[12]

    Iapetus' wife is usually described as a daughter of Oceanus and Tethys named either Clymene (according to Hesiod[13] and Hyginus) or Asia (according to Pseudo-Apollodorus).

    In Hesiod's Works and Days Prometheus is addressed as "son of Iapetus", and no mother is named. However, in Hesiod's Theogony, Clymene is listed as Iapetus' wife and the mother of Prometheus. In Aeschylus's play Prometheus Bound, Prometheus is son of the goddess Themis with no father named (but still with at least Atlas as a brother). However, in Horace's Odes, in Ode 1.3 Horace writes "audax Iapeti genus ... Ignem fraude mala gentibus intulit" ("The bold offspring of Iapetus [i.e. Prometheus] ... brought fire to peoples by wicked deceit").

    The sons of Iapetus were sometimes regarded as mankind's ancestors, and as such some of humanity's worst qualities were said to have been inherited from these four gods, each of whom were described with a particular moral fault that often led to their own downfall. For instance, sly and clever Prometheus could perhaps represent crafty scheming; the inept and guileless Epimetheus, foolish stupidity; the enduring, strongest and powerful Atlas, excessive daring; and the arrogant Menoetius, rash violence.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cronus
    In an ancient myth recorded by Hesiod's Theogony, Cronus envied the power of his father, the ruler of the universe, Uranus. Uranus drew the enmity of Cronus's mother, Gaia, when he hid the gigantic youngest children of Gaia, the hundred-handed Hecatoncheires and one-eyed Cyclopes, in Tartarus, so that they would not see the light. Gaia created a great stone sickle and gathered together Cronus and his brothers to persuade them to castrate Uranus.[2]

    Only Cronus was willing to do the deed, so Gaia gave him the sickle and placed him in ambush.[3] When Uranus met with Gaia, Cronus attacked him with the sickle, castrating him and casting his testicles into the sea. From the blood that spilled out from Uranus and fell upon the earth, the Gigantes, Erinyes, and Meliae were produced. The testicles produced a white foam from which the goddess Aphrodite emerged. For this, Uranus threatened vengeance and called his sons Titenes[a] for overstepping their boundaries and daring to commit such an act.[b]

    After dispatching Uranus, Cronus re-imprisoned the Hecatoncheires, and the Cyclopes and set the dragon Campe to guard them. He and his older sister Rhea took the throne of the world as king and queen. The period in which Cronus ruled was called the Golden Age, as the people of the time had no need for laws or rules(Creators LAWS); everyone did the right thing, and immorality was absent.(Everyone Broke Creators/HAWAHS LAWS)

    Genesis 1

    9 And God said, “Let the waters under the sky be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 Then God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees of every kind on earth that bear fruit with the seed in it.” And it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed of every kind, and trees of every kind bearing fruit with the seed in it. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, the third day.

    26 Then God said, “Let us make humankind[c] in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the earth,[d] and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.”

    27 So God created humankind[e] in his image,
        in the image of God he created them;[f]
        male and female he created them.

    28 God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.” 29 God said, “See, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food.

    genesis 2

    In the day that the Lord[a] God made the earth and the heavens, 5 when no plant of the field was yet in the earth and no herb of the field had yet sprung up—for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no one to till the ground; 6 but a stream would rise from the earth, and water the whole face of the ground— 7 then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground,[b] and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being. 8 And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed.


    15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it.

    If Adam & Eve hadn't transgressed in the Garden, they would have received the Knowledge of Good & Evil without having eaten the fruit (not a literal fruit, not a literal tree).  Why?  Because they would have realized (or been told by God after they asked) that the Serpent (nachish) had lied to them.

    Manna (Hebrew: מָן‎ mān, Greek: μάννα; Arabic: اَلْمَنُّ‎), sometimes or archaically spelled mana is, according to the Bible, an edible substance which God provided for the Israelites during their travels in the desert during the 40-year period following the Exodus and prior to the conquest of Canaan. It is also mentioned in the Quran three times.

    In the Hebrew Bible, manna is described twice: once in Exodus 16:1–36 with the full narrative surrounding it, and once again in Numbers 11:1–9 as a part of a separate narrative. In the description in the Book of Exodus, manna is described as being "a fine, flake-like thing" like the frost on the ground.[3] It is described in the Book of Numbers as arriving with the dew during the night.[4] Exodus adds that manna was comparable to hoarfrost in color,[3] and similarly had to be collected before it was melted by the heat of the sun,[5] and was like a coriander seed in size but white in color.[6] Numbers describes it as having the appearance of bdellium,[7] adding that the Israelites ground it and pounded it into cakes, which were then baked, resulting in something that tasted like cakes baked with oil.[8] Exodus states that raw manna tasted like wafers that had been made with honey.[6] The Israelites were instructed to eat only the manna they had gathered for each day. Stored manna "bred worms and stank":[9] the exception being that stored the day before the Sabbath (Preparation Day), when twice the amount of manna was gathered. This manna did not spoil overnight. Exodus 16:23–24 states:

    This is what the Lord commanded: "Tomorrow is to be a day of rest, a holy Sabbath to the Lord. So bake what you want to bake and boil what you want to boil. Save whatever is left and keep it until morning." So they saved it until morning, as Moses commanded, and it did not stink or get maggots in it.

    The word mana appears three times in the Quran, at 2:57, 7:160, and 20:80.[11] It is narrated in the Sahih Muslim that Muhammad said: "Truffles are part of the 'manna' which Allah sent to the people of Israel through Moses, and its juice is a medicine for the eye.

    28 God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.” 29 God said, “See, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food.

    genesis 2

    15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, “You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.”
