isis unveiled: chapter IX (as above, so below…)

“The whole Darwinian theory of natural selection is included in the first six chapters of the Book of Genesis. The “Man” of chapter i. is radically different from the “Adam” of chapter ii., the former was created “male and female” – that is, bi-sexed – and in the image of God; while the latter, according to verse seven, was formed of the dust of the ground, and became “a living soul”, after the Lord God “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.” Moreover, this Adam was a male being, and in verse twenty we are told that “there was not found a helpmeet for him.”

The Adonai, being pure spiritual entities, had no sex, or rather had both sexes united in themselves, like their Creator; and the ancients understood this so well that they represented many of their deities as of dual sex. The Biblical student must either accept this interpretation, or make the passages in the two chapters alluded to absurdly contradict each other.

It was such literal acceptance of passages that warranted the atheists in covering the Mosaic account with ridicule, and it is the dead letter of the old text that begets the materialism of our age.

Not only are there two races of beings thus clearly indicated in Genesis, but even a third and a fourth one are ushered before the reader in chapter vi., where the “sons of God” and the race of “giants” are spoken of.”

H. P. Blavatsky
