The Cost of Evil
“Eve had consented to participate in the practice of good and evil. Good is the carrying out of the divine plans; sin is a deliberate transgression of the divine will; evil is the misadaptation of plans and the maladjustment of techniques resulting in universe disharmony and planetary confusion.”
The evil committed by Eve was eventually adjudicated as an Error in Judgement. This was due, in large part, to Adam and Eve’s repentance and the unfavorable conditions on the planet at the time. Regardless, it resulted in the default of Adam and Eve’s mission on our planet. For this, the Tree of Life was taken from them, they lost their immortal status, and much more.
Fortunately for us, however, her evil act did not stop the offspring of Adam and Eve from contributing to our planets biological growth. In fact, the descendants of the Prince’s Corporal Staff (the Nodites) and the Adamites, when combined, contributed greatly to the uplifting of mankind. Furthermore, it should be noted that “The fall of Adam and Eve was not the fall of man and Adam should not be regarded as the cause of a curse on the human race.”
Destruction of the First Garden
As for what happened next, the inhabitants of the Garden, upon learning of what had taken place, became infuriated. They stormed the nearby Nodite settlement and killed every man, woman and child, including Cano. Serapatatia, overcome by remorse and fear, committed suicide.
Adam did not participate, nor did he call for this horrible act. As a matter of fact, the celestial beings tell us that Adam detested war.
Meanwhile, Serapatatia’s Nodite relations in the north, upon hearing of the slaughter of their brethren, sought revenge. They armed themselves and began the long journey to the garden. Upon hearing this, Adam held and all-night conference with his loyal followers. During the meeting they decided to leave the first garden to the Nodites unopposed. The next day, Adam and Eve and their loyal followers, along with 4 generations of pure line offspring, totaling 1,647, departed in search of a new home.
When the Nodites arrived they took over the garden. Then, four thousand years later, “the eastern floor of the Mediterranean Sea sank, carrying down beneath the waters the whole of the Edenic peninsula.”
The Consequences of Choice
The Edenic caravan traveled east towards one of the other sites Van and Amadon had considered for the first garden. During an almost year long journey, several things of note took place. First, three days into the journey and unbeknown to Adam and Eve, many Seraphim Angels arrived from Jerusem for the purpose of transporting the offspring of Adam and Eve to Edentia, the headquarters of our Constellation. Those offspring at the age of twenty and above had the choice of staying or leaving. Two-thirds chose to leave. Those of prechoice age had to go.
Due to the choice that Eve made, the Seraphic transporters left with three-quarters of Adam and Eve’s offspring. Proving again that there will always be consequences to the choices one makes and the way of the transgressor will always be the harshest. It’s hard to imagine the grief Adam and Eve must have felt at that moment in time. Furthermore, it’s a cross they carried with them for the remainder of their time on our planet.
The second event occurred towards the end of the journey when Eve gave birth to Cane and Laotta to Sansa. Laotta died giving birth, so Eve took her daughter and reared her along with Cane.
The Second Garden
For close to four hundred years, Adam and Eve lived in relative peace in the Second Garden. The garden lay between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in Mesopotamia. As a defensive measure, they built homes close to where the rivers merged and a defensive wall that extended fifty-six miles. While there, Eve gave birth to forty-two additional pure-line Adamites. She died nineteen years before Adam, who lived for five-hundred and thirty years.
During those many years, “Adam entertained the thought that our strife-torn planet just might turn out to the the most fortunate world in the entire system and the envied planet of all Nebadon.”
In the next paper, we’ll take a closer look at the Second Garden.
