Four additional, less obvious but very compelling reasons that Athena is the Eve of Genesis.

8. The sculpture on Athena’s huge shield depicted the Greeks defeating the Amazons. The Greeks hated the Amazons and had to conquer them because they were children of the despised Ares, a deification of Adam and Eve’s youngest son, Seth (Athena and Kain, Chapter 5). The Greeks were part of the line of Kain; the Amazons, part of the line of Seth. The idea that the Amazons cut off their right breast so that it might not interfere with the use of the bow, and that the name thus means “breastless” is a fable. Amazons are never pictured in sculpture or painting without a breast which they surely would be if that’s what their name meant. Maza means barley cake. Kain was a server of the ground (Genesis 4:2) out of which the barley grows. An “a” in front of a Greek word often is the equivalent of our “non” or “un.” The Amazons were known as nomadic and not servers of the ground; that is, not those who raise barley and make cakes. A-mazon would thus identify them as not part of the line of Kain; that is, not believers in the wisdom of the ancient serpent (Athena and Kain, pages 152-53). The shield is a symbol of defense. Athena defends the Greek religious system from the inroads of the daughters of Ares (Seth).

9. On the inside of Athena’s great shield, Greek artists painted the Greek gods defeating the Giants. The same theme decorated the 14 east metopes on the outside of Athena’s temple. The defeat of the Giants, who represented the Yahweh-believing sons of Noah, is the culminating event, the great celebration, of ancient Greek religion. The rebellion of Hermes in Babylon, the rebirth of the serpent’s Eve, the replacement of Nereus/Noah with Poseidon as god of the sea, the rebirth of the line of Kain in Athens, and the labors and conquests of Herakles, all pertain to it or lead up to it. This is the fundamental assertion made by the ancient poets, vase-artists, and sculptors: the Greek gods have defeated the Giants: the Greek religious system has overcome the Yahweh-believing sons of Noah, and Athena, the serpent’s Eve, rules the Greek world (Athena and Kain, Chapter 15).

10. As we know from the story of Oedipus, Hera originally controlled the sphinx, a riddle-uttering winged monster with the head of a woman and the body of a lion. By the fifth century BC when Phidias constructed the great statue of Athena Parthenos, the sphinx and her enigmatic power belonged to Athena, as we know from its image atop her war helmet. Athena’s possession of the sphinx shows that her authority supercedes that of Hera, the original primal Eve from before the Flood (Athena and Eden, Chapter 5). The wings of the sphinx symbolize power in the heavens; the body of the lion, power on earth; and the woman’s head represents the mysterious Eve, mother of all living.

11. Sculpted on Athena’s sandals were the Lapiths (Flint-chippers) losing a battle to the Kentaurs. This lost battle was also depicted on 24 of the 32 metopes on the south side of the Parthenon. These Kentaurs, half-men/half-horses, represented the line of Seth before the Flood, and for a short time after it. Greek artists often depicted Kentaurs as carrying branches. To the Greeks, who did not believe in a Creator-God, they represented a “strange branch” of humanity. The Greeks blamed the Kentaurs for the destruction of the line of Kain during the Flood. In Athena’s Parthenon, it’s after the Flood now. The line of Kain has been reestablished in Athens and Greece. The Kentaurs, and that embarrassing defeat, are now, literally, under Athena’s feet. The line of Kain is vindicated, and the enemies of the serpent’s system are underfoot (Athena and Kain, Chapters 6 and 7).
