“The Eight” Flood Survivors in Global Deluge Legends A Shared Human Memory

A big percentage of the – by now – over 700 global Flood legends, mentioned exactly eight people who were spared and survived. It is uncanny that this number is handed down as fact so uniformly, instead of ten or five or some other random number.

EGYPT: In ancient Egypt, one Flood hero was Toth who survived the Deluge along with his Seven Sages.
The Egyptian ‘Ogdoad (is that where the Latin word for 8 ‘octo’ comes from?) were a group of eight survivors led by the main character Nun and his wife Naunet. Nun (Noah) is pictured in Egyptian art as upholding his boat with the seven other survivors here:

Sumerian Unicorn?

This (above) piece was exhibited in an Auction catalogue for Fine Arts auction that took place last year. (Fine Australian & International Art & Antiques ) It appears to have been purchased at the minimum bid of $148.38 by an unknown bidder. The auction house identified the piece as that of a “mythical creature” from Mesopotamia, circa 2,000 B.C. (Size 5cm)

Earth Measure Geometry, the Great Pyramid and the Astronomical Merry-Go-Round

Earth Measure Geometry – Exposition One: 

gyroscope-gif-i0(Note the earth is like a gyroscope in space, axis wobbling while it spins, rotating around the sun.)

Geometry means earth measure, the ancient term used centuries before the Greek Eratosthenes “first measured the earth,” who but in reality measured it rather crudely, to only 5% accuracy, having simultaneously (by hour glasses) measured shadows at two locations in Egypt to calculate the distance between them, and so, the earth’s circumference was roughly extrapolated there from, having known the earth is a sphere.

EratosthenesSo WHO must have measured the globe much more accurately long before the time of Eratosthenes, to have equated the angles and forms of triangles relating to spheres to the true size of the earth, necessarily by much more accurate time measurement?

To measure East to West distances precisely, marked now by the North to South arcs of longitude on the globe, requires accurate timekeeping, which Eratosthenes crudely achieved when measuring solar time by shadows.

Who Was Cush?

Sumerian Kings List

Cush (or Kush) was the son of Ham or Cham — also named Kronus by the Greeks! Kush’s brothers were Misraim (founder of Egypt) Phut, and Canaan (founder of Canaanites or Phoenicians)

It is stated in the Sumerian Kings List that the Kingdom descended from Heaven, obviously meaning that it landed on a devastated Earth with Noah’s Ark on the mountains of Ararat with his sons Ham, Shem, and Yapheth!

OsirisHam moved to Egypt with his son Mizraim, who founded Egypt and was also called Osiris (or Zeus acc. to the Greeks). Even today Egypt is still called Misr by the Egyptians themselves!MISR2

Below is the table of the early post-Flood patriarchs’ “proto”-family of Man, after whom many of their tribes and nations were named.

Cush in Mesopotamia

Cush or Kush, Misraim’s brother, first started the Kingdom of Kish in Mesopotamia, then called the valley or ‘Land of Shinar’ in the Book of Genesis written by Moses, the Hebrew vice-Pharaoh of Egypt descendant from the Sumerian stock of Abram via Eber and Peleg, father of the Pelasgians, one of the early tribes responsible for building many megalith structures all over the globe.
