Things were about to become a lot more complex. The Serpent wanted to seduce Eve, and do it in any
way possible. We will now see the other reason for his passion, besides envy, jealousy, and anger:
He saw Adam and Eve, in blissful ignorance of shame, happy in their love, and he became jealous and
envious… (A) main purpose, however, of the Serpent is not the death of Adam, but the possession of
his widow Eve. Because he saw their joys of love, he lusted after Eve. (Jung, 1974, p. 68-69)
There was no doubt about it: the Serpent was male; and Satan knew it. According to ancient sources,
this angel-turned-human now began to have human passions. Satan could have finalized the contract
between himself and the Serpent by allowing him an opportunity for the richest, most luscious “food” in
the garden: Eve herself!
(The historian) Philo regards the serpent as a symbol of pleasure, including sexual lust.
(McClausland, 1872, p. 130)
There was, now, another factor of life this Serpent (and other fallen angels) had to deal with: members
of the opposite sex. Interestingly, we see in the Bible the Serpent was mentioned right after the verse:
“And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed (Genesis 2:25).” Could the
Serpent have noticed Adam and Eve in their nakedness, and began to desire her as well? If the Serpent
was only an animal - an ordinary reptile - he would not have had any sexual desire for Eve. Only a man,
or humanoid being, would have sexual desires for those of the opposite sex.
All of these suggestions might, at first, sound contrary to Biblical teaching, but, as we’ll see, the Bible
itself might even hint towards this! Layered within the verses of Genesis and Revelation are a number
of obscure bits of information which might possibly allude to these alternative interpretations. This one
missing element is really important to Mystery Babylon. It allows us to discover that there could be a lot
more to the temptation of Eve than most people have ever assumed. Since Satan knew the Serpent
was male, he also probably knew that sexual tension could have sprouted between the two.
We already know that Satan “rode atop” of the Serpent, and told him what to say. While Eve was
alone, the Serpent approached her. She was sitting near the tree God instructed both Adam and Eve
not to eat. This tree was the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil - the only rule that they had. If they
ate the fruit of this tree they would surely die. The time had come for the Serpent to engage her.
According to one ancient source, the Serpent said: “I am distressed for you, for you are like the animals
(all of the angels/people around?)… but I, I do not desire your ignorance” (The Book of Adam 18.1).
The Serpent then accosted her with the famous: “Yea, hath God said?” In other words, “You are being
fooled! Don’t you see that? The fruit of the tree does not cause death; it actually brings life! It confers
wisdom. God is deliberately keeping you in ignorance.” Although God warned Eve that death would
result from the eating of this fruit, the Serpent tried to tell her the opposite: “death” was life! A lot of
this so-called “hidden knowledge” the Serpent spewed at Eve left her curious. She thought this was
her chance to gain some sort of “enlightenment” and power. Eve wanted the fruit.
In one final condition of her acceptance, however, the Serpent stated he would give Eve this occult
“power” if (and only if) he got one thing in return: to give the same fruit to Adam, and make him eat.
The Serpent could have had one more trick up his sleeve. One ancient source stated that, at this time,
“the woman was inflamed by the serpent.” What could be the meaning of “inflamed,” here? Let’s
take a look at what the Bible stated:
…And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
- Gen. 3:13 (KJV)
Did the Bible leave out an important part of this story, here, or did it provide hints that something else
might have occurred? What does the word beguiled mean in this verse; could it mean more than just
verbal seduction? Let’s look at the Bible, and we see how beguiled might be implied in this instance:
…for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present [you as] a chaste virgin to Christ. But I
fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be
corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. - II Cor. 11:1-3 (KJV)
Paul, the narrator of this verse, wanted people to come to Christ as untainted as a virgin. The Serpent,
on the contrary, tainted Eve. Could this mean that Eve assuredly was no longer a virgin after her
exchange with the Serpent? Could he have beguiled (i.e. wholly seduced) her?
…the serpent had intercourse with Eve and injected filth into her…
- Zohar Pekudei 21
At the same time the Serpent seduced Eve with subtle words, he could have seduced her - on an en-
tirely different level! He caressed her, touched her in some specific areas, and ultimately began to
provide her with more knowledge about her body than she ever had. Engaged in their newfound sexual
frenzy, Eve probably gave in, and agreed to eat fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. To
fulfill her pact with the Serpent, Eve followed up on her promise: to give the fruit to Adam. The Serpent
got what he wanted, on, oh, so many levels. After she ate the fruit, she instantly realized she made an
error. Death now entered into her world, destroyed her authority over other people and animals alike.
Eventually, this act enacted the rest of the world to go down the same pathway.
(Eve speaking) … (and) he went and poured upon the fruit the poison of his wickedness, which is lust,
the root and beginning of every sin, and he bent the branch on the earth and I took of the fruit and I ate.
- Apocalypse of Moses / Apocalypsis Mosis 19:3
Because of acquiring this newfound lust (via the Serpent) Eve did not want to go down alone. Eve tear-
fully pleaded with Adam; she could have even seduced him sexually, the same way the Serpent did to
her. In the end, Adam gave in: “Eve, I love you. I would rather die with you than outlive you… God could
never console me with another woman equaling your loveliness!” He gave in, and ate the forbidden fruit.
This sounds noble by today’s standards, but it was truly disobedient. He should have obeyed God, and
not have done what sounded good at the time. He was just as wrong as Eve. This may have been the
original meaning of the word fornication. We have an interesting quote on fornication:
That tree was from the tree of knowledge of good and evil (Gen. 2:9,17). Upon eating from the tree,
Eve was aware of what she had done. She now had the knowledge of evil and she was aware that she
had sinned against God. In that knowledge, and having fallen, she then offered the fruit from the tree
to Adam… Adam elected to eat the fruit, knowing what he was doing. His love for Eve (whom he knew
had sinned) was greater than his love of God. This is a tactic used time and again by Satan. The down-
fall of God’s people is frequently through the temptations of godless women (see Numbers 25:1-9)…
The same basic scenario is being repeated after the Garden of Eden, only on a larger scale. There is
a wholesale abandonment of God and his righteous ways for women known to be in sin. This is what
God calls fornication, not referring only to a sexual sin, but the sin of mixing the righteous with the
wicked, truth with evil. (“There Were Giants on the earth… The Nephilim”, n. d., p. 2)

And Adam knew his wife, who had conceived by the angel Sammael, was pregnant…
(Eisenmenger, 1748, p. 198)
(Cain)… who, on account of the foulness of the murder which he had committed, has nothing in him
resembling his father (or Adam, his presumptive father), either in body or soul.
- Philo Judaeus Questions and Answers on Genesis 1, 81
Maybe the reason Cain did not resemble Adam was because Adam wasn’t his father! Here is how the
Bible portrays it all:
1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain,
and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
2 And she again bare his brother Abel.
Another translation of the Bible, however, has it this way:
1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain,
and said, I have gotten a man from an angel of the LORD.
2 And she again bare his brother Abel.
- The Jerusalem Translation
Eve probably knew what angels looked like, and how they had shining exteriors. It’s easy to see, here,
how she could have convinced herself it was an angel who planted seed in her - thus the reason for her
above exclamation. She thought she conceived Cain through an angel of the Lord (i.e. the Serpent),
not Adam; just by looking at him. Many ancient texts reported that Cain did have a “shining,” angelic-like
countenance; which gives us further credence that Cain’s birth was very telling, and shocking to Adam
and Eve. We can also see, along with the above, the reason Eve called her baby a “man,” not a child:
…this divinely begotten child could appropriately be called a man (rather than a “baby”) because
angels are frequently called “man” in the Bible (see Gen. 18:2, 32:24, and elsewhere). Thus, some
ancient interpreters concluded that Cain had in fact been half-human, half-angelic creature begotten by
the devil. (Kugel, 1997, p. 87)
There is another Biblical “proof” of Cain, and his being patriarch of the Serpent’s seed line. When we
look at the genealogy of Christ in the Bible we see words such as, “so-and-so” begat “so-and-so.” The
word begat is simply defined as: “one male produced a son of his own seed.” The Bible states things in
this way to assure there could be no doubt to one’s own origins! Interestingly enough, the word begat
was first mentioned in the Bible, not with Cain or Abel, but with another son of Adam: Seth (Genesis 5:3)!
Nowhere in Scripture does it state that Adam begat Cain or Abel! Adam’s son Seth was the first who,
according to the Bible, also looked similar to Adam at birth (Genesis 5:3)! This could easily lead us to
believe Cain and Abel were not begat by Adam - even according to the Bible!
These folk recount another tale, according to which, they say, the devil came to Eve and united with
her as a man with a woman and begot on her Cain and Abel… For, they say, they were physically
begotten from the devil’s sperm… - The Archontics According to St. Epiphanius 40.5.3-4
From this, we’ll see that the Serpent could have sired both Abel and Cain, as twins.
No wonder that Abel… meant “serpent shining”… Abel resolves into Ab (Snake) and El (God/shining)…
(Gardiner, 2006, p. 18)
We will also discover that, according to the Bible, it was in the process of time that Cain and Abel were
required to give God an offering (Genesis 4:3). Cain and Abel were to give offerings once they reached
a certain age, and the Bible infers they gave sacrifices on the same day! Again, if they were born on
the same day they would “come to age” on the same day!
An interesting note on Abel: we will also see that Abel chose to do right. As we’ll also see, he may have
even been a son of the Serpent himself (just like Cain), but this one chose to give God a sacrifice in the
proper way. Abel honored and followed God. This is proof-positive that, no matter who you are - even a
child of the Serpent himself - you can do right if you want to. It’s all about free will.
Cain, on the other extreme, would maintain a bad attitude in life. He wanted out from the presence of
the Lord - literally and symbolically. Not only was Cain physically different than Adam and the pre-
Adamites, he was different in thought, attitude, and his ways of life. Cain seemed to have inherited the
similar personality traits as his father. The Serpent was cocky, imprudent, and self-absorbed; Cain
would act the same way. These inherited tendencies allowed for the ease of Cain to act on any im-
proper thoughts that might go on in his head. Cain really pushed the limits of his behavior, and take
it to the extreme - on his own brother. In Cain's Sacrifice and Aftermath, we will see how, and what it
all means to our whole scheme of things.

And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived…
- Gen. 4:1 (KJV)
When one reads this verse, it seems obvious Adam knew his wife (or had sex with his wife), and their
first offspring was Cain. To many, this is proof-positive Adam was the father of Cain, right? Maybe not.
We have a number of interesting thoughts that surround this verse. Many have assumed the word knew
means “to have sex with.” It actually does. We also know the original language of the Bible was Hebrew,
and the people who translated the words of Scripture did so according to what they assumed were
correct. The English word knew, in this verse, comes from two Hebrew words: yada and eth. The
word yada means, “to know (a person carnally);” but, more often than not, it means to “recognize,”
“discern,” or “acknowledge.” The word eth is untranslatable in English, but is rooted in a word meaning
“sign,” “distinguishing mark,” or “omen.” Put them all together, and we have another meaning for this
And Adam eventually acknowledged the distinguishing sign that had come upon Eve…
- Gen. 4:1 (in retranslation)
On top of this, the Hebrew word for conceived, in the above verse, could also mean to be “with child.”
Put them together, and we have another wording for the verse:
And Adam eventually acknowledged the distinguishing sign that had come upon Eve; that she was
with child, and realized she was about to give birth… - Gen. 4:1 (in retranslation)
Could the Serpent, then, be the actual father of Cain?
After the punishments of Adam and Eve, the time had
come for them to leave the Garden. The seed-line
foundations were set in place. When God makes a pro-
phecy it, simply, has to come true - that’s just the way
a perfect God works. Eve may have already had an
idea what was going on with her, and that she was with
child! To Adam’s surprise, he also may have realized
she was pregnant, and what it all meant to their world.
Let’s look at some of reasons Adam and Eve both could
have believed her child wasn’t really Adam’s child:
God’s representative to the entire world if he only would have resisted. When they fell, everyone
and everything around him fell. The whole organized world, epitomized in the Garden of Eden, would
never be the same. Now he, Eve, and every other person on earth would become familiar with the con-
cept of death. Adam’s power and authority over other people, the angels, and the Garden as a whole
disappeared. The world was no longer very good - battles for superiority and survival began.
God was extremely angry about it all. The time had come for all involved to pay the price; and punish-
ments were dealt out. Adam was cursed, not only because he ate of the fruit, but also because he
trusted Eve, rather than God; a byproduct of fornication. Eve was punished, as well:
Thereupon God imposed punishment on Adam for yielding to a woman's counsel... Eve He punished
by childbirth and its attendant pains, because she had deluded (deceived) Adam, even as the serpent
had beguiled her. - Josephus Jewish Antiquities 1:45-50
Interestingly, we see that most of her punishments were associated with sex - probably an ironic
response to the act she participated in - with the Serpent. In the Bible, we have these curses placed
upon Eve (Gen. 3:16 KJV):
- a greatly multiplied sorrow when she experiences pregnancy
- sorrow when she brings forth children
Once, she wanted to be fruitful in many ways (including childbearing) by the eating of the Tree of the
Knowledge of Good and Evil, now she’ll suffer in her fruitfulness because of it.
Since thou hast hearkened to the serpent… thou shalt be in throes of travail and intolerable agonies;
thou shalt bear children in much trembling and in one hour thou shalt come to the birth… But thou
shalt confess and say: “Lord, Lord, save me, I will turn no more to the sin of the flesh.” And on this
account, from thine own words I will judge thee, by reason of the enmity which the enemy has planted
in thee. - Apocalypse of Moses / Apocalypsis Mosis 25:1-4
Apparently, menstrual and other pains will become a side effect of her sin at the Garden, not only to
Eve, but all her female descendants after her. There could have been one more outcome of her
transgression with the Serpent, another consequence that would plague Adamites and pre-Adamites
until the end of our age. What if something resulted from the sexual union of Eve and the Serpent; how
this would complicate her whole world? What if she acquired a little more than those feelings of lust?
What if she was pregnant? If the Serpent was actually the father of Eve’s up-and-coming child, then what
affect would this have on Adam, and her world?
(God, speaking to the serpent)… And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy
seed and her seed… - Gen. 3:15 (KJV)
“Thy seed?” God was talking to the Serpent in this particular case. Are we talking about the descendants
of Eve being at enmity with baby snakes? How could a little fear and antagonism between women and
serpents be of such importance, here? There are a lot of animals that scare people, but this prophecy
seems to be something monumental; enough for it to be mentionable, here. Just who were these “seeds”
the verse is referring to?
As we recall, God said this right after the possible copulation between Eve and the Serpent. Maybe this
would set the stage for two separate bloodlines to be born - the human descendants of Adam and Eve
and the human descendants of Eve and the Serpent! This above verse, as we’ll see, will actually be a
focal point of so much in the Bible, and in this website!
It is openly possible the Serpent could have spawned human offspring. According to many ancient
sources, this was actually what happened: two separate bloodlines were set in place. The other angels,
now possessing the same “estate” as human beings, could participate in this sexual activity. It would be
through these pregnancies that entire groups of people (known in some circles as the mixed multitudes)
would arise. The patriarch of one such group - an offspring direct from the Serpent and Eve - would go
on to launch one of the most important struggles of our time! This man, and his descendants, would
indeed show enmity to those sired wholly by Adam and Eve. Just who this offspring was, and what affect
this particular offspring had on everyone around him, would become extremely relevant to this website.
The first part of the above verse, as we know, relates to seeds of the Serpent and seeds of Adam and
Eve. The second part deals with what will be the result of this prophecy: a savior would eventually come
into the world, and:
…it (the savior) shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
- Gen. 3:15 (KJV)
The savior would eventually solve this whole problem of death, and the mix-up in the Garden. This
savior, as most of us know, would be Jesus Christ:
(God talking to the Serpent)… let the precious cross which my Son will take upon the earth condemn
you because of the deceit by which you deceived Adam. But may you again be crushed and broken
because of the evil of your heart. - Book of Adam 26.3-4
In the process of saving the world, this individual would have his own “heel’ bruised, which refers to
Jesus’ death. He would rise again, however, and crush the power (or “head”) of the Serpent - the hold
this Serpent (and Satan), as well as his descendants, would have over the world.
The descendants of the Serpent, throughout history, would try to destroy/compromise Adam’s seed line,
with hopes of stopping Christ from coming into existence. In the end, however, the savior would be born,
and the serpent-seeds would be defeated.
We now see the Bible is truly the story of one particular man: Adam, and his family bloodline; all the way
down to the savior - Jesus. The male seed now becomes important for this reason. An uncorrupted and
unadulterated pure seed has to flow, from Adam, all the way through his descendants, to fulfill this
Genesis 3:15 Prophecy!
Fornication wasn’t only associated with women, here -
the Serpent seduced her in the same way. The import-
ant thing to take from this is that fornication, actually,
goes way beyond the meaning of, “sex outside marr-
iage;” it also relates to intent. In this case, it relates to
Eve’s seduction of Adam through, in part, sexual action.
Fornication was committed in both cases because the
participants went beyond their innate and occasional
desires; sex was used as a means to an end. Eve (and
the Serpent) mixed its original purpose with something
evil (or deceptive).
Regardless of who seduced whom, the time of Adam’s
dominion had come and gone. Adam would have been
