Sons of God, Daughters of Men, and Nephilim – The beginning of Ancient religions

The Paleolithic Adam and Eve Story contains the essential elements that mythologies around the ancient world share such as the acts of creation, a primordial garden, a talking snake, the fruitful trees, an act of betrayal or overthrow of God’s reign by people and the final curse to punish and warn them.

The Sumerian, Egyptian, Greek, Hindu, Mayan and other conceptions of Gods were most alive in the imaginations of the ancient worlds priests, poets and philosophers from before the time of the Flood until the appearance of Abraham.

The most important ancient mythological figures like Gilgamesh, Zeus, Krishna, and Horus lived and were worshipped before the Lord called upon Abram.

The earliest reference to the existence and worship of these polytheistic animalistic belief systems is in Genesis 3:22

And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

Who is the Lord God speaking to immediately after he announces the curses on Adam, Eve and the serpent?

The term “one of us” denotes the spiritual residence of God opposed to man’s earthly home. So God is speaking to spiritual beings, orders of Angels obeying his divine will and performing his commands, like the Cherubims and the flaming sword. His next words are cut off when the Angel ejects Adam and Eve.

God is speaking to the angels or fallen angels, spiritual beings who would influence the descendants Adam and Eve into shaping their spiritual beliefs.

These angels would gradually reveal their forms to the founders of civilizations long before the Lord God finally reconnected to humanity through Abraham.
