‘THE ORIGIN OF THE ARMENIANS’ by F. Michael Chamich English text

MOUNT ARARAT CENTER OF ARMENIA

BY FATHER MICHAEL CHAMICH From BC 2247 to the year of Christ 1780, or 1229 of the Armenian era. Translated from the original Armenian by Johannes Avdal, esq.

The Armenians are an ancient people who live in an ancient land. Their home lies in the highlands surrounding the biblical mountains of Ararat, upon which tradition tells us Noah’s ark came to rest after the flood. (Gen. 8:4). In those highlands, the Armenian state has struggled to exist for more than 3000 years, most recently regaining independence in September 1991 upon the fall of the Soviet Union. Armenia’s more than 2780-year-old capital, Yerevan, derives its name from the fortress of Erebuni, founded on that site in 782 BC. On Yerevan’s streets, the people speak a distinctive Indo-European language upon which their ancestors put the stamp of their identity 5000 or more years ago.

THE ORIGINS OF THE ARMENIANS
—————

After the universal deluge, the three sons of Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth, fixed themselves for a period in the country about Mount Ararat, upon which, it will be recollected by all conversant with ancient tradition, that the ark of their highly favoured parent first settled on the subsiding of the waters. Here they multiplied considerably, and the anger of the Almighty against the sinful children of men, being appeased, fertility again covered the face of the earth, and peace and joy once more took possession of the bosoms of its inhabitants. Shem was the first to break the intimate union which subsisted between the families of his brethren and his own. Observing the rapidity with which the little community increased, he assembled his family, and communicating to the several members of it his intentions, he bade adieu to his brethren, and accompanied by his offspring, set out in a north-westerly direction, in search of a more commodious place of abode. In the course of a few days journey he arrived at the base of a lofty mountain, bounded by an extensive plain, and delightfully watered by a river, which passed through the middle of it. He rested two months on the banks of this river, and gave the neighbouring mountain the name of Shem, after himself. At the expiration of this period he resumed his journey, turning toward the south-east, leaving Taron, one of his younger sons, to settle in the country about the mountain to which he had given his name. The latter, on taking possession of his allotted inheritance, gave the land the name of Taron. It was subsequently called Taruberan. He then distributed to his several children portions of territory, all of which became, in course of time, populous provinces. Continue reading ‘THE ORIGIN OF THE ARMENIANS’ by F.

Manu the Indian Noah & his Flood story agrees with 600 other Deluge accounts

Manu

Ever heard the Deluge story of the Indians? Above is an Indian illustration of 8 Flood survivors on a boat pulled by a fish? It follows the story of MaNU, (also called Satyavrata) the Indian name for Noe, Noahk, Nur, Nu-U, Nu-Ah, Nüwa, OuraNOH, whichever nation’s name you prefer to use for our great global Patriarch and ancient leader of the eight Deluge survivors known from over seven hundred ancient legends worldwide! This comes from the oldest Indian book called the ‘Satapatha Brahmana’ & the ‘Matsya Purana’.

In various Hindu traditions, Manu, is a title accorded to the progenitor of mankind, and the very first king to rule this earth, who saved mankind from the great flood, after being warned of it by the Matsya avatar of Vishnu, who told him to build a giant boat and populate it with “his family animals, and 9 types of SEEDS!”

Seeds on the Ark are not mentioned in Genesis by Moses, but it makes perfect sense, as many people ask the question, “from what did the new trees, grasses and plants grow after the water receded?” Well of course there were seeds floating on the water and in the air, and perhaps some buried shallowly in the mud, but likely not too many. So there is the Indian answer to that skepticism.
