(1008.8) 92:5.6 Many races have conceived of their leaders as being born of virgins; their careers are liberally sprinkled with miraculous episodes, and their return is always expected by their respective groups. In central Asia the tribesmen still look for the return of Genghis Khan; in Tibet, China, and India it is Buddha; in Islam it is Mohammed; among the Amerinds it was Hesunanin Onamonalonton; with the Hebrews it was, in general, Adam’s return as a material ruler. In Babylon the god Marduk was a perpetuation of the Adam legend, the son-of-God idea, the connecting link between man and God. Following the appearance of Adam on earth, so-called sons of God were common among the world races.
I thought these images of Marduk were interesting. Marduk is often depicted on a dragon. Also the image of him and the ring is VERY similar to the Faravahar. I brought up speculation in another thread that the Faravahar may in fact be a person sitting on a bird with leg holdings and a saddle. A couple of these images may be side shots of the Faravahar. The similarities between Marduk and the Faravahar are uncanny IMO.The top 4 images are all of Marduk and he is on a bird. The first two images depict him fighting Tiamat.
