When Women Ruled

By James Donahue

Archaeological evidence exists everywhere that proves the world and the human race is much older than modern historians, feeding on Biblical and Hebrew writings, are allowing us to believe. The great stone megaliths found on mountains, at the bottom of the sea, and in places where humans lack any historical memory, are like an elephant in the room.

Also the bones of humanoids with odd shaped skulls and giant bone structures, found where they should not be, help build a case for very ancient ancestry. Then there are the artifacts like steel bits, cut jewelry and golden images of very modern things found buried deep in the earth and even chipped from coal.

Finally there is a cellular memory in us all, as descendants of those very ancient civilizations. There are the dreams and the mythology of the aboriginal people who talk about the giants who once walked the planet, and the stories of a time when women ruled and there was peace all over our green plush world.

The Bible refers to that as the Garden of Eden. We suspect that it is a reference to a very long period of time, perhaps some 7,000 years, when women ruled, possibly in local kingdoms or in small villages. This is reflected in much of the very old cut stone images that show women, obviously appearing in the role as queens, but often with their arms around a man at their side. This is a strong message . . . that when the women ruled, the men were treated as equals and given important roles in the community.

Something happened at the end of that 7,000-year era that shifted everything, and men were suddenly in charge. And the world has been at war ever since.

In our studies of the ruins of the lost civilization of Dilmun, recently found at the bottom of the Persian Gulf, a revelation came to us. This great civilization existed between 4,000 and 7,000 years ago, and was mentioned in the oldest known text, the Epic of Gilgamesh. Thus the story was at least known among the ancient people of Mesopotamia, long believed to be part of the Cradle of Civilization.

That the ruins exist at the bottom of the gulf suggest that Dilmun may have flourished during the ice age, and that the gulf flooded because of the melting ice that raised sea levels an estimated 300 feet.

Also there was the strange story of the attempts to build the Tower of Babel at Dilmun, printed in a strange publication issued by the Urantia Foundation of Chicago in 1955. The Urantia Book tells of the Nodite people, who mixed with the Andonite and Sangik tribes, then attempted to erect a giant tower to clarify the racial differences between the tribes. But the people fought over how it was to be done, and ended up in full-scale warfare. The tower was started but never finished. Its ruins may still lie at the bottom of the gulf.

Where could such a story come from? We suggest cellular memory and dreams by the author, a man identified as Dr. William S. Sadler.

Suggesting that all of this may be factual, the revelation that came to us was this: Suppose that the civilization of Dilmun was the heart of the advanced humanoid communities in existence during those ancient times. The warfare that broke out over the reasoning and philosophy behind the construction of the great Tower of Babel perhaps marked the shift that pushed the women off their thrones and put men in power.

It was the first known war to have ever occurred. Many more have been fought in the thousands of years since. Notice the estimated time-line of that event. Some believe it happened about 7,000 years ago.

Today humanity is struggling in a strange conflict between women’s rights, male dominance in the home and office and homosexuality. Could it not be that we are experiencing another dramatic shift from a male dominated world to something quite different. Imagine what this new world might be like.

The philosopher, author and magician Aleister Crowley described the new age of Horus in 1904 when he penned the following:

"Everywhere his government is taking root. Observe for yourselves the decay in the sense of sin, the growth of innocence and irresponsibility, the strange modifications of the reproductive instinct with a tendency to become bi-sexual or epicene, the childlike confidence in progress combined with a nightmare fear of catastrophe, against which we are yet half unwilling to take precautions.

"Consider the outcrop of dictatorships, only possible when moral growth is in its earliest stages, and the prevalence of infantile cults like Communism, Fascism, Pacifism, health crazes, occultism in nearly all its forms, religious sentimentalized to a point of practical extinction.

"Consider the popularity of the cinema, the wireless, the football pools and guessing competitions, all devices for soothing fractious infants, no seed of purpose in them. Consider sport, the babyish enthusiasms and rages which it excites, whole nations disturbed by disputes between boys. Consider war, the atrocities which occur daily and leave us unmoved and hardly worried. We are children."

Just offering some food for thought as we attempt to explain away the insanity of contemporary times.
