A timeline of Nephilim movement through the
"c. 9,000 BC: A settlement in the Kurdistan Highlands is established and
known as Dilman, Kharsag, or Eden. Situated near Lake Van, this community
became the home for a shamanic culture which is later transformed into the
myths of Watchers (Judaism), ahuras (Iran), or Anannage
The names of the Watchers
"According to the Book of Enoch, exactly 200 Watchers fell to Earth to take
human wives. It names 20 of these, explaining that each one was a leader in
a group of 10."
Israel: Images of Shemyaza
"And Semjaza, who was their
leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this
deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.' And
they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all
bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but
to do this thing.'"
"In African Islamic traditions, he is known as Zeraili, the angel of death.
The thorny acacia bush is sacred to Azazel, according to Arab tribes. His
name is pre-Jewish and pre-Islamic. Some speculate that he may have been an
early Semitic goat god whose worship later became repulsive to the Jewish
and Islamic faiths. Angra Mainyu is Azazel's Zoroastrian counterpart. Andrew
Collins, of 'From the Ashes of Angels' fame, postulates that Azazel was most
likely a powerful goat-shaman."
- "Anzu was also known by the root Zu ("An" means "sky" in Sumerian), and
suggests a passing relationship to the demon Pazuzu. He had a lion's head
and body, huge wings, and could walk on two legs like a man. Anzu was called
Imdugud, and among other things was known for being able to create
whirlwinds, thunder, and sandstorms with his wings, and for stealing the
tablet of destiny from Enki/Enlil."
- "When Pazuzu is summoned by worshippers, he appears in a statuesque
form, frozen into the position described above. However, he metamorphoses
out of the statue form to his living form. In this form, he is fully capable
- "According to Persian myth, the Simurgh lived in the Tree of Knowledge,
again tying it to the myth of the Anzu, which made its next in the Huluppu
tree. According to the Occultopedia, 'When the Simurgh took flight, it was
said, its powerful ascent shook the tree's branches so violently that the
seeds [from every plant that has ever existed] were scattered throughout the
world, bringing a wealth of valuable plants to mankind.'"
- "His body was that of a handsome man with the beak and the talons of a
predatory bird. He is associated with the all-consuming sun's rays. Garuda
is often depicted with the supreme Hindu god Vishnu and his wife Lakshmi
riding on his back flying across the sky."
Kurdistan: Images of the Peacock Angel (Malak Tawus)
"On the previous dark and nu moon I had invoked the Yeziddi Blue God Melek
Taus or Shaitan, the peacock angel and 'Lord of the Painted Fan'. I had
realized then how he corresponded with Kukulcan/Quetzalcoatl in terms of the
seven powers, chakras and colour spectrum, but it only just clicked now that
both were associated with the planet Venus, which the Mayans called the
- "Ancient cave art representing Quetzalcoatl also drew associations with
the morning star, Venus, another tie to Melek Ta'us and Lucifer. He may also
be associated with Mercury, that messenger of the Gods, with whom all angels
are linked in some fashion. Quetzalcoatl was said to have been born to a virgin woman, along with his
brother, the dog-headed Xolotl."
Egypt: the vulture goddess Nekhbet
"As a vulture-goddess, Nekhbet is the goddess of heaven, sometimes related
to the sun when she is called 'the Eye of Re' and other times to the moon.
She is also the protectress of the king and of the non-royal deceased."
Vulture Gods around the world
"There were no more silver feathers on the top of the vulture's head, only a
bunch of golden ones. Heresa Heri told the hero that those were not
enchanted and there would come no light from them. Suspecting another lie,
the hero cut deeply into the evil bird's flesh, and all golden feathers came
together, suddenly lighting up as a large bonfire."
North America: vulture/buzzard tales
"In many cases the vulture was one of the first animals to come down from
the sky or to come from the old land into the new, much as the Watchers had
done. That the vulture helped shape the land and bring light might suggest a
similar theme to stories in which the Watchers introduced new technologies
to the humans."

"When we donned our vulture masks for sacred ritual, the feathers rising
high upon our heads, almost touching the ceiling of the shrine, mourners
fell to their knees in awe."
