Inana - Goddesses of Old
The Goddess Inana and the Planet Venus

Ana spelled frontwards or backwards has the same spelling and IN has the same sound as Ana = IN AN-NA.
The most primitive form of Anu and Ana is 'A' and 'N' with a space between the two letters  = A_N

I = One
A = Water (creator, the source of the life giving water)

In ancient texts, we read, 'in the beginning was the void which was NU and from this void came the first speck of matter, who was given the name A_ Nu

She and her people may have originated from Venus, being that in many of the ancient texts , such as in the Chaldean history, we see this female deity called 'A'.  'A' was represented
by the crescent -Venus- goddess symbol whose emblem is a disk with eight rays, a number that -like the octagon- is associated with the Goddess of Light in many cultures.

Now lets take into consideration the Goddess using Sacred Geometry. N, an alphabetically number directly related to the body of the Goddess, also represents the letter or number 0,
the tiny mound at the center of the cross of initiation (also symbolized by a rose) representing the pregnant womb of the Great Mother Goddess.

The sacred geometrical numbers  I and  0  is or 10 which is  "IO" , a name given to the goddess, Ianna (IO nu)  one and ten in sacred geometry means 'the Beginning and Completion"
or the "Alpha" and the "Omega".

I and 0 are the only two letters (numbers) used in binary computer programing, which I feel is quite interesting when you take into consideration that according to The Bible Codes, our
reality can be decoded by viewing it as a holographic reality. If it is a hologram, it would have to be created by some sort of computer intelligence, which could communicate through
computer language using the binary numbers of 1 and 0.

The Worship of the Goddess was practiced around the world prior to the invasion of their lands by the followers of  Abraham, the first prophet of the male war deity Yahweh.  Ashtoresh,
the despised pagan diety of the Old Testament patriarchs was Inanna/Astarte, the Great Goddess.  King Solomon,  worshipped the Goddess Inanna as the Hebrew Ashatoroth.
Solomon was eventually threatened with loss of his kingdom for having forsaken Yahweh and revering Inanna.

Solomon's  temples were dedicated to the Goddess and built to replicate her body with a  womb-like entrance and the holy of holies designed as a narrow corridor to represent her
birth canal  which again represented birth, death and reincarnation through rebirth.

Our Sacred  Earth sites are mathematical in design and carefully spread out against the countryside in the sacred geometrical pattern  associated with the female deity  Venus, which
directly relates to Ianana.

The Ancient Temples, used for religious ceremonies, were built in the design of female cross and dedicated to the Goddess.  Temple Priestesses ,  especially in ancient Erech , were
known as NU=GIG , the pure or spotless, a term later used in biblical text to imply 'VIRGIN'.  The goddess worshipping societies were not matriarchal, which implies 'power over', but
were instead matrilineal.  These societies were based on absolute politcal and social  equality between the sexes, although on the highest levels, descent was in the female line,  
due to  mtDNA passed on from mother to daughter to granddaughter.

Though at first the Goddess appears to have reigned alone, during the elimination of Goddess worship and the right to assign 'kingship' through matrilineal descent, she acquired a
brother who was also her lover and consort.  It was this youth who symbolized the male role in the sacred annual sexual union with the Goddess. This consort died in his youth,
causing an annual period of grief and lamentation among those who paid homage to the Goddess. Wherever the symbolism and rituals connected with this dying consort appear, we
recognize the presense of the Goddess religion, the legends and lamentation rituals of which are extraordinarily similiar in so many cultures.This relationship of the Goddess to her
brother, or to a handsome youth who symbolized her brother, was known in Egypt and found  in the earliest literature of Sumer; emerging later in  Babylon, Anatolia and Canaan,
surviving  in the classical Greek legend of Aphrodite and Adonis, Isis and Osiris, the pre-Christian Rome as the rituals of Cybele and Attis.

The association between the worship of a female deity and marriage within the family, ie. marrying her brother,  is based on biological evidence of a particular mtDNA that can only be
passed on through the female. By the mother goddess impregnating herself using a highly sophisticated method of in vitro fertization, her mortal descendents would have inherited
the Great Mother' s Hybrid Genes, giving this particular lineage the extraordinary abilities of the Goddess, ie. telepathy, hidden knowledge of other lives before their mortal time here on
earth, healing powers, etc.

The Mother Goddess, being created from another planet and brought to earth to propagate by mixing her blood with the clay of earth (earthlings) created a very unique bloodline line
which is passed down through her descendants.   The Basques of Spain and Southern France , a mysterious culture that , to this day, is based on matron lineal descent and worship
a Great Mother Goddess as Creator, have a
blood type and RH factor combination that is extremely rare,

Most interestingly, the same blood types are found in Egyptian and Inca mummies, explaining why the Incas and the Egyptian pharaohs,  cultivated marriages between brothers and
sisters -preserving the rare blood that was not of this world.  In 1952, two British scientists analyzed the blood of five Inca mummies discovered at Cuzco and lent to the British
Museum in London. One showed a blood group with an RH factor that nobody had seen anywhere in this world before, while another mummy had a blood group that was very rare
among other American Indians.

The Resurrection of Ianna parallels to the Resurrection of Christ.  In Ancient Sumer, the cradle of civilization, we find the first tale of resurrection. These particular tablets record the
journey of Ianna, who made the decision to descend into the underworld. Inanna, instructs her servant Ninshubur that if she has not returned in three days, to set up a lament for her
by the ruins, in the  assembly hall of the gods. ianna then descends to the netherworld, where at each of seven gates, she is met by a chief gatekeeper who questions her. She
passes through one gate after another until she finally passes through the last gate. She is brought naked and on her knees before her Sister, Ereshkigal and the Anunnaki, the seven
dreaded judges of the underworld. ' The judges said angry things to her,.'words which torture the spirit; and after judgment is pronounced, Inanna is hung from a nail. Three days and
three nights pass. On the fourth night, Ninshubur, seeing that his mistress has not returned, makes the rounds of the gods in accordance with her instructions. As Inanna had
surmised, two of the gods, Enlil and Nanna, refuse all help. The god Enki, however, devises a plan to restore her life. Two emissaries are entrusted with t he food of life and the water
of life  with instructions to proceed to the netherworld and sprinkle this food and water on Inanna's impaled corpse. This they do, and the Goddess Inanna is resurrected , ascended
from the underworld -reborn.   (the first communion)

The First Resurrection, Ancient Sumerian Texts from the Tablets of Sumer, translated by Samual Noah Kramer

"Give us the corpse hung from the nail." say to her (Ereshkigal).
One of you sprinkle upon her the food of life, the other the water of life.
Then will Inanna arise

The Resurrection of Christ was the completion of the reign of the Goddess. One of the most fascinating aspects of the two identical crucifixions is the
attached to the placing of the crown of thorns on the head of Jesus - after it had been removed from the head of the Goddess Inanna,

Thereafter, the patriarchal religions began to usurp not only the inheritance rights of the female, but most significantly, freedom of choice ...the core principle
upon which the Goddess religion was based. Thus we see the inherent symbolism in the ritual of the crown of thorns - matrilineal descent, which passed from
mother to daughter, with its right to assign kingship was stripped from the female Goddess/Queen by the patriarchs. This explains the reason that biblical text,
altered on so many occasions, labeled queens such as Jezebel a harlot when she was, in fact, not only a queen but the granddaughter of the high priestess
and high priest of the Goddess Inanna.

Thus the transformation from female goddess to male god was completed when the resurrection of Inanna was replaced with the resurrection of Jesus, and
the name of the Venus-Goddess, originally , IO (Ana, An or Anu) was further confused when the patriarchal religions began hiding and distorting her identity.

They were so successful with  wiping out her identity and the people that worshipped her, that it wasn't until only a few hundred years ago, when archeologists
were digging  for Assyrian and Babylonian artifacts that they once again realized the goddess culture of the Sumerians. The name of Sumer had been erased
from the memory of man for more than two thousand years.

Wallis Bridge, world renowned Egyptologist, emphasized the distortion and alteration of texts in the 'Egyptian Book of the Dead' when he wrote:

'The earliest texts bear within themselves proofs, not only of having been composed, but also of having been revised, or edited, long before the days of King
Mena, and judging from many passages in the copies inscribed in hieroglyphics upon the pyramids of Unas (the last king of the Vth dynasty) it would seem
that , even at that remote date, the scribes were perplexed and hardly understood the texts which they had before them. The most moderate estimate makes
certain sections of the Book of the Dead as known from these tombs older than three thousand years before Christ...To fix a chronological limit for the arts
and civilization of Egypt is absolutely impossible. '

One of the most intense periods of suppression occurred not long after the Egyptian pharaohs began the process of self-deification, glorifying themselves as
god-kings rather than mortal men. Thus Egyptian pyramids, once sacred temples dedicated to birth  and buriel ceremonies associated with Isis, became used
for an odd mixture of rituals dedicated to the male god Osiris. Close examination of the myths of Osiris, when these legends are compared with ancient
Sumerian texts, show traces of a gradual alteration, changes that must have taken centuries to complete.

One has to ask, how could such a highly advanced goddess worshipping culture  lose the power that they held for so long.
Archaeological, mythological and historical evidence points to the fact that this did not happen in a short period of time. It was a gradual fading away of the old
traditions through the continual persecution of the goddess followers.  The power structure behind the  suppression of the goddess traditions advocated the
patriarchal religion that hed one god (Jehovah) supreme over all other gods.  .

The patriarchal religions revised the creation stories  recorded by the Sumerians hundreds of centuries before Christianity . It is also interesting that the name
Jesus in Arabic is 'Issa" which bears a very close resemblance to the name "Isis", another name given to Iana.

To end the Goddess traditions, patriarchal religons stamped out their followers and places of worship.  According to the Koran  "Allah will not tolerate idolatry;
the pagans pray to females."  The devastation, as we have discovered, is recorded in the pages of the Bible in the Book of Deuteronomy " You must
completely destroy all the places where the nations you dispossess have served their gods, on high mountains, on hills, under any spreading tree, you must
tear down their altars, smash their pillars, cut down their sacred poles, set fire to the carved images of their gods and wipe out their name from that place.
(Deut. 12:2,3)

Although Goddess worship continued well into the Middle Ages in both the Middle East and Europe, the violence against her worshippers escalated into a
fanatical religious frenzy. Persecution of the accused heretics finally culminated inro  the witch hunts of the sixteenth and sevententh centuries, when nine
million men and women were murdered.

it has been archeologically confirmed that the earlest law, government, medicine, agriculutre, architecture, metallurgy, wheeled vehicles, ceramics, textiles
and written language were intitially developed in sophisticated societies that worshiped a female deity. When considering the basic principal of these
societies, it is crucial to note the absence of any fixed dogma, doctrine or theology. According to the Cathars, a Goddess-based society of the Middle Ages,
mankind's purpse was simply to renounce perpetually anything connected with the principle of power and thereby to attain union with the principle of love.

Gifts from a Mysterious Planet Associated with the Cross (X)

The earliest Sumerian texts record the account of three generations of 'goddesses' who came to earth bearing certain plants. Ancient texts claim that a
mysterious deity first spread cereals over 'the hill country' and cultivation was made possible by keeping the flood waters away. The name of this mountainous
land east  of Sumer, was
E LAM , which meant  'house were vegetation germinated'. Later , two helpers , Ninazu and Ninmada, extended the cultivaton of
cereals to the low lying plains so that eventually 'the land that knew not grain, came to know  grain'.  Perhaps not suprisingly , we find the name of this
mysterious deity under the sign of Virgo, where, as the Goddess, she holds, in her left hand, the ear of corn called Spica, also the sixteenth brightest star in
the sky.

Spelt, a hard grained type of wheat poses a great mystery . It is a product of 'an unusual mixture of botanic genes.' It is neither a development from one
genetic source nor a mutuation of another source. It is definately the result of mixing the genes of several plants.  Modern scholars have no answers to why
the mountainous semicircle in the ancient Near east became a continuous source of new varieties of cereals, plants, trees, fruits, vegetables and
domesticated animals. However the Ubaidians and Sumerians knew the answer. The seeds, they said, were a gift sent to Earth by Ianna from the Celestrial
Abode. According to ancient texts from Ur, "Wheat, barley and hemp were lowered to Earth" from a mysterious planet associated with the cross ( X)

Crop Circles point to Ianna and Mysterious Planet Associated with the Cross (X)

It may be for the reason that the Goddess and her worshippers were agriculturists, that the crop circles are carefully laid out over large areas of agricultural
land, created in vast fields of wheat and grain,  always in locations where the Goddess had been worshiped.  Where ever you find a crop circle , it is almost
certain you a sacred site area close by in the form of ancient temples, earth and rock mounds.

When we examine the crop circles, we first need to realize the meaning behind the 'circle' itself.  The large elliptical 'circle' symbol used to create the crop
circle patterns most likely stands for the numerical/name having the value  one (monad ) and  zero  = 1/ 0 = 10 (ten =decad) =  
'To the One who grows
bright - Venus, the heavenly planet of Anu' who is Inanna.

You also find that many of them have two elliptical half circles joined together. These half-circle signs, along with other key symbols, can be found in the
sacred core script. The Ubaidians were known to inscribe their pottery with this sacred script, as did all Goddess worshipping societies.  According to certain
archaeologists, bands of parallel lines, the doted meander, single of multiple Vs , rows of striated triangles , groups of two or three diagonal lines and framed
columns of banded Vs  designate the Bird Goddess, Ianna. This Goddess was associated with geometrical configurations such as the pentagonal star figure
also  representing Venus, as well as the 'near-perfect' circles, ellipses, egg shapes, or enclosures .

Ancient Britain, particularily England where many of the crop circles are located, is exceptionally rich in enclosures - henges with standing stones made from
natural boulders of quarried stones or with timber rings ie. Stonehenge, Avebury and Woodhenge. (Altogether no fewer than one thousand are known.)
These are linear features composed of two parallel ditches (sacred script symbols) and banks of very great length. These circles, ellpses and cursuses were
observed and marked by the Neolithic farmers - sacred as manifestations of the power of the Goddess.

One of the most fascinating crop circles was discovered in England at Barbury Castle. Here we can see the winged Goddess, or, as the priestesses were
called who dedicated their lives to her, the Melissae  ...also known as  bees.  Bees indeed! ... in the crop circle called 'the Bee' we find a simple yet intriguing
combination of crescent shapes, circles and rings and we can also see the sacred script symbols used to create this major event. Throughout the ages, the
Goddess has been represented by the bee. In 1653, no less than three hundred gold bees were recovered from the tomb of the Merovingian priest king
Childeric and even Napoleon had sewn them onto his coronation robes.

Other crop circle symbols include large and small scrolls (meander symbols) and a triangle with four squares or boxes, all signs found with the core script
associated witht he Goddess. Both the triangle and the V are symbols of the regenerative powers of the Goddess, representing her pubic or birthing area.
The coiled or winding meander signs are interchangeable with a single or multiple image of spirals or snakes.

The biblical account of a male god creating mankind may be deemed questionable if you take into account the story of creation written in the Tablets of
Ninevey, which predates the bible. According to these Babylonian Tablets, the creator of man was the goddess, Ianna, also known as Ninhursag,  the
Anunnaki sister and wife to Enlil and Enki,

Thou art the mother -womb
The one who Mankind can create
The new-born's fate thou shall pronounce;
Nin-ti would fix up it the image of the gods'
And what it will be is 'Man'
Tablets of Ninevey

"...they kissed her feet,saying 'The Creatress of mankind we call thee;
The mistress of all the gods, be thy name!"
They went to the House of Fate,(Nin) igiku-Ea (...), the wise Mama.
Fourteen mother-wombs were assembled to tread upon the clay before her.
...Fourteen pieces she pinched off;
seven pieces she placed on the right,
Seven pieces she placed on the left...
...Of the seven and seven mother-wombs.
seven brought forth males,
Seven brougt forth females.
The Mother-Womb, the creatress of destiny,
In pairs she completed them,
In pairs she completed before her,
The forms of the people...
In the house of the bearing woman in trevail,
Seven days shall the brick lie,
...As the Bearing One gives birth,
May the mother of the child bring forth by 'herself'.
