Let me start with saying why this is of Pagan relevance: Among the many Faces of the Goddess, I find Eveto be very important, being Herself a pantheon of many other goddesses so similar to one another found all around the world in various periods of human history.
Now without further ado...
(Forgive lack of
any, just vomit-
This archeological site located in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (21°29′31″N 39°11′24″E/21.49194°N 39.19°E / 21.49194; 39.19) is considered in Islam to be the Tomb of Eve (burial place of the Biblical Eve of the Abrahamic faiths), and for this reason I think that it should be a sacred spot for worshipers of the Divine Eve,even if it isn't really the literal tomb of an incarnate of the Mother of All Living. To me, it's the symbolism that counts.
The name of the tomb's location, Jeddah, is also significant, as it is derives from the Arabic word meaning Grandmother, which is so clearly a reference to Eve. If we take this in a Pagan context, we may then consider Divine Eve as "Grandmother" of the All Deities.
If anyone would venerate the Divine archetype of Eve, I would recommend
visiting it and/or praying in direction of it (coordinates previously mentioned).
Here is a map if it helps:
If anyone would like to learn more about the Tomb of Eve and/or the True Divine Eve, I
invite you to join the Garden of Edinu, which covers many interesting topics concern-
ing our Most Divine Mother:
This garden is devoted to Eve, the
mother goddess of humanity. Learn
of Her divinity, Her love, and Her un-
written full story.
(Sorry, this post was kinda
became a big deal for me
after finding that 1920 shot
inside the tomb)
What sounds like Parasite Eve?
Three ways I read that:
If you could clarify, sorry Xoc. :)
And if it's the third/last in the list, whether
anything you say changes me in anyway or
not, I am always happy for you input.
Parasite Eve is a video game series, well it only has two very kick ass games. I'm sure you don't know what mitochondria are so I'll just explain it. (And yes, this is related to it.) In biology, mitochondria are bean shaped things with their own dna that live in certain cells in animals and people. (Hence, mitochondrial dna testing.) There's a theory that they were parasites that hooked onto life as soon as it began on the planet, that's why they have their own dna. They don't have a gender, so their dna rarely mutates. Rather mitochondria is passed maternally, so your mitochondria are the same as your mother's. That's why they're important in dna testing.
With that testing we have discovered that this woman named Mitochondria Eve, as she is dubbed by science, is a common ancestor of everyone on this planet. So we're all related.
In the game, mitochondria evolve consciousness and become Neo-mitochondria. When they evolved they would take over their hosts and start calling themselves Eve claiming they're going to take back the planet and thus infect everything with neo-mitochondria, because it effects normal mitochondria. Every time "Eve" reappears she usually makes those claims, that she is old, that they're taking back the planet, etc. She's also usually different people. It only happens when they take her over, the main character has neo-mitochondria too but they work in symbiosis. There's also a clone of the main character named Eve. So, many facets, ancient life, mother of all living.
OMGdess!, I totally (as you probably saw) had no idea of what you were talking about! I feel so silly now, lol. That's pretty interesting, just checked out the game trailer, pretty epic!
And FYI, I am familiar with
term "mitochondria", thank
you anyway. :)
I think you'd like the game. The first one is rpgish, the 2nd plays more like Resident Evil. The 2nd one is my fave game of all time.
The funniest thing was, I thought you
were indicating something I was saying
was like a parasite metaphorically!
LOL, no. If I compare something to a video game it's usually not in a bad way. ;-P
To me I always saw Eve as an aspect of Inanna in a more Earthly aspect. Though I don't know much about Ninti. Perphaps you can tell me. However since I am a Fillianic I don't see Inanna as the rather capricious Goddess that the Sumerians saw her.
As a Filianist myself, I totally get what you're saying about Inanna.
Anyway, back to Ninti: Two links to help a little....
"The tradition pre-dates Mohammed by many centuries. It seems Adam and Eve lived the last part of their lives separated, and Adam ended up in Ceylon, where the faithful can find his tomb. Adam had something to do with the erection of the shrine at Mecca, then he left for other parts of the world."
This is from one of the sources you gave Psyche, and which would look better in the OP. The Arabs always had a thing for colourful fairy tales. It would not do you much wrong to get into 1001 Arabian Nights and all the mystery behind that. It would spare you a lot of Slave mentality to authoritarian terror mono-deity.
Also PLEASE it is ADO not ADIEU, ADIEU (FR) means by god, at god.
The common legend has it that Eve was one hundred and eighteen feet tall.
