Regarding Gene Matlock's article "Abraham" in ViewZone:|
I read your article on the Indian roots of Abraham. I was also researching this subject some time ago, and came to learn that the Hindu deity Shiva, is also known as Kedar. In fact, the Lord Shiva is worshipped in India at the Kedarnath Temple. What is intersting is that according to Arab traditions, and the Bible, Abraham's son Ishmael also had 12 sons, amongst the 12 sons, who later formed the 12 Tribes of Ishmael, one son was named Kedar. Prophet Muhammad is his descendent, as are the 12 Imams. Muslims believe that the promised Mahdi will descend from this family.
Perhaps you may want to look into doing research on the history of the Ishmaelites, and why they have been forgotten in histroy and their heritage hidden and or covered up. Here is a good start, http://nabataea.net/12tribes.html
Also, did you know that according to Arab tradition, when Abraham settled in Iraq, he chose to live in the city of Noah, Kufa. It is on this same account that the Ishmaelite Imam, 'Ali ibn Abi Talib, the first Imam of the 12 Imams, made Kufa his capital. This is also why according to some traditions that Mahdi will also make Kufa a city of importance, and or maybe even his capital in the region.
I am not trying to preach to you, so please do not get that impression. I just wanted to share traditional knowledge with you which I had access to.
Again, I think the world could use some more information on the Ishmaelites.
Kana is present as a deity in Hawaii and Polynesia. (Marge Beckwith"s Legends and Myths of Hawaii). Hawwah is ancient Hebrew for Eve. And Cain or his lineage, after whom Kana was named, named the beautiflul islands after his mother Eve.
The apocryphal accounts of Adam and Eve in R.H. Charles Apocrypha and Pseudoepigraphia of the Old Testament show Cain as an avatar who is born shining, like Noah in the Ethiopic Book of Enoch.
All the apocryphal accounts above focus on fruits and seeds as the diet preferred by God. And immediately after he is born, Cain goes and brings a blade of grass to his mother Eve (who has fallen because of the animal sacrifices). The "revolving sword" guiding the gates of paradise is probably a mistranslation of circular blade, that is the sharp disc or cakra, which Krishna notably uses as a weapon.
Cain or Kana is named after and is an avatar or incarnation of Kannan, a Tamil Hindu name for Krishna (p. 136 Michael Jordan's Encyclopedia of Gods.) His influence in the ancient world is immense, and the term kanna im, meaning zealot or avenging priest in the Talmud, as well as Canaanean is relevant here. Canaan was clearly just another name for Kannan, or Krishna/Vishnu. And Cainan or Kanneh is the name for that deity among the Sabaeans of Ethiopia (James Hastings, Dictionary of the Bible, reference Sheba, Seba, Saba).
The implications are immense. The mark on the head worn by Moses thereby becomes the same bindi of the Sabaeans. Media, where Moses lived and married, was, even into the days of early Christianity, considered to be a part of India, just as Ethiopia was. The golden calf was not constucted as an idol, nor was the copper or bronze serpent. They were intentionally crafted icons by the Hoduwe (Hindustan in ancient Hebrew). The Exodus was the Ex Hoduwe, the leaving of the Hindustan people.
