A vampire origination theory based on Cain

Visit my publisher, DonnaInk Publications, L.L.C. for deep pocket discounts from retail costs!       Both the modern day Bible and the Quran identify Cain as the first son born of Adam and Eve, his brother Abel being the second. Cain was said that have been a cultivator of the land while Abel was a shepherd. One evening Cain selected the finest of his harvest to present to God the Father as an offering. Abel also presented an offering, comprised of the finest calf of his flock and other choice cuts of meat from fatted calves among his herd. God found favor in Abel’s offering and showered praise down upon him, while no praise was given to Cain.

Cain grew jealous of Abel. One day as he and his brother walked out into the fields, Cain murdered his brother with his bare hands. The Earth below swallowed his blood and immediately called out to God, notifying the Father of Abel’s death. After this God said unto Cain, “Where is thou brother Abel?” to which Cain replied, “I do not know: Am I my brothers’ keeper?” After this God said to Cain “What hast thou done?” “The voice of thy brother’s blood crieth out to me from the ground” At this God place a curse upon Cain. No longer would the soil of the earth yield healthy crops for him and he would walk the earth as a fugitive and a vagabond. The Hebrew legend states that the ground trembled as Cain received the curse, indicatory of tremors that Cain may have suffered while receiving a mark from God for his sin. In this mark God made and oath that Cain would wander the earth aimlessly and that Cain would have divine protection against premature death, no man could kill Cain.

This is only the beginning of Cain’s tale, though little more mention was made of him in the traditional Bible, other than his acts. From here Cain began to wander the earth until he met up with Lilith. There are two conflicting stories of where the encounter took place; The first states that they met as the Red Sea, the second states that they met while Cain wandered the land of Nod. Lilith sees that he is cold and hungry and welcomes him as she identifies herself as the first wife of Adam. After staying with her for some time, the two of them become lovers. Cain begins to realize that Lilith has powers and magic that he too would like to possess. Lilith hesitates but creates an Awakening Ceremony where she opens herself with a knife and bleeds into a bowl. She gives the bowl to Cain and orders him to drink of her blood. After Cain partakes in her blood he is visited by three angels, each offering an opportunity for him to repent of the murder of his brother. Cain rebukes each opportunity and with each rejection he is cursed. The first curse being a weakness to fire, the second, vulnerability to sunlight and the third would implant a beast like urge within him that would only be quelled by the taste of blood.

Time passed and Cain came to master his new abilities, as he grew stronger he again yearned to wander the earth, thus leaving Lilith behind. Cain was said to have eventually settled in a small agricultural community known as Ubar, inhabited by the children of Seth and ruled by their Kink Enoch; it was here that Cain would become known as the Dark Father.

The villagers were aware of Cain and were familiar with his mark, a short time passed before they began to worship him as they marveled at his powers, King Enoch would relinquish his thrown to Cain who would now rule over the city. A legend exists within the legend: One evening Cain was watching two young lovers amongst his court. So touched by the affections between the two of them, he decided to share his gift of immortality so that they could be in love always. The couple surrendered to his wishes but once they discovered that they could not bare children they became distraught and walked into the sun, thus ending their immortal life and love. Cain was so heartbroken by their actions that he forbade the mention of their names, thus wiping them from history. The former King, Enoch, had begged Cain to introduce him to his powers for decades, now upon his grief of the death of the young lovers, Cain was reluctant to oblige, but the raging beast within him longed for the companionship of others like him. Constant attempts made by Enoch would eventually win Cain over. Cain, in honor of his new vampiric son, declared Ubar to become known as the city of Enoch. Time passed and Enoch began to desire kindred brethren of his own, Cain obliged and created several sons. These sons became leaders of armies, farmers of the land and inventors of great creations. The city of Enoch became a great empire boasting some of the finest crops and modern technologies of it’s time until being destroyed by the great flood.

So, now we have examined both the Lilith and Cain theories, as the commercials say, “But wait! there’s more!” Next we will examine the Judas Theory!

Until then,

Vampire Kisses!

The Nephilim Theory, creators of the first vampire?

To begin with, there is no “theory” of the Nephilim, it is a fact that they did exist, as stated in the Old Testament.

The “Theory” is that the Nephilim were the creators of the first Vampire. As a matter of opinion, I must admit that I agree.

Let’s start from the beginning!

Visit DonnaInk Publications, L.L.C. today for discounts and perks!      Nephilim were the offspring of the “Watchers,” 200 angels that were cast out of heaven by God. The Watchers had become arrogant and desired to be equal to God whilst also they plotted to go down upon the Earth and take the daughters of man to mate with as they had acquired a great lust for human flesh. God had made himself clear that no angel should lie with the daughters of mankind. Though the bible is very sketchy with the details, the book of Enoch relays the tale with much more detail; possibly explaining why the book was not made a part of the original Bible. (The prophesies of Enoch are mentioned in the letter of Jude (Jude 1: 14-15).

The tales of affairs between mortal and the fallen vary. Very few references have been made of “true love” affairs, most accounts indicate that the women were not willing partners. Easy to believe as it was said that no mortal could survive bearing a Nephilim. Enoch relays the accounts in the book of Watchers, filling in many of the blanks left within the Old Testament as it was rewritten throughout the years. His account is as follows:

“And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who consumed all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another’s flesh, and drink the blood.” *

It also discusses the teaching of humans by the fallen angels chiefly Azazel:

“And Azâzêl taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjâzâ taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, Armârôs the resolving of enchantments, Barâqîjâl, taught astrology, Kôkabêl the constellations, Ezêqêêl the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiêl the signs of the earth, Shamsiêl the signs of the sun, and Sariêl the course of the moon.“

At this point God had enough and decided to wipe the evil from the face of the earth, the prelude to a well-known bible story “Noah and the ark”.

Now with this knowledge in mind, I recalled some research that I had done for a blog that I posted on “The Book of Nod.” In the book of Nod it is insinuated that the first Vampire was born of Lilith and Cain. This is not a big jump from the information found in the book of Enoch. The book of Nod tells that when Lilith refused Adam she was cast out of the Garden of Eden and made to live next to the Red Sea where it is believed the Watchers were residing as well. The book of Nod states the following:

For beyond the land of Eden, lay the land of Nod where Cain ran to. He saw lands to be tilled and animals to be tamed; yet he would not do God’s work. Cain cursed his existence and refused to give glory to God. He wandered alone long into the night; then upon him came a woman. Garments dark as night, woven from shadows. Skin as pale as the moon with a chill as cold winters grasp. Eyes and lips glowing as embers in the night. Cain questioned who this woman was, she responded as ” I am Lilith…second created from God. First banished.”Lilith of unnatural power; with the belief of a survival of the fittest. Lilith taunted Caine, showing him her dark power but not teaching it to him. So he took her blood, devoured her powers. Believing he became stronger, with the belief of survival of the fittest; he took it upon himself to taunt Lilith and the Children of Seth. The belief of conquering the brood of Seth and “if thee shall worship me, they are free to do so.” And so came temptation.

Two distinct legends based on two ancient texts; one having been written throughout a span of time by many scholars (some say even Cain had a hand in the writings) and one written by the Great Grandfather of Noah. Both collaborating the other through different venues.

The Cain Vampire origination theory

Both the modern day Bible and the Quran identify Cain as the first son born of Adam and Eve, his brother Abel being the second.  Cain was said that have been a cultivator of the land while Abel was a shepherd.  One evening Cain selected the finest of his harvest to present to God the Father as an offering.  Abel also presented an offering, comprised of the finest calf of his flock and other choice cuts of meat from fatted calves among his herd.  God found favor in Abel’s offering and showered praise down upon him, while no praise was given to Cain.

The Book of Nod

Ever heard of it?  Not many have!   There is no true “book” in form but a compilation of texts created by a variety of sources and in many languages such as Greek, Latin, Enochian and other ancient languages.

The “Core” story of the book is the Chronicle of Cain.  Cain, son of Adam and Eve, murdered his brother Abel.  As punishment for his sin, Caine is banished to live in Nod, east of Eden. Caine wanders in Nod for an unspecified period of time, until he meets Lilith, former lover and coeval of his father, Adam. In her bitterness, Lilith teaches Caine potent magic, the Disciplines of the modern nights. Immediately after this, Caine abandons Lilith and is approached by Angels of the Lord.

These Angels offer Caine the opportunity to repent, which he rejects. Each Angel in turn curses Caine with a specific vulnerability: sunlight, fire and treachery. The last Angel prophesies the path of Golconda, then leaves Caine alone.

Another reference to Liltih and Cain can be found in the Erciyes Fragments thought to have been collaborated by some of the same Noddist scholars that contributed to the “book” of Nod.

Genesis chapter tells us the creation of Adam, Eve, Caine, and Abel. Adam and Eve’s tale retells the banishment from the Garden of Eden, sans snake however.(This Eve is depicted as acting in her capacity as helpmeet to Adam, as well God’s command to serve him.) Once banished from the garden, Adam and Eve had two children…Caine and Abel. They spent years toiling away; Abel was a shepherd while Caine was a farmer. When Adam told Caine and Abel to offer sacrifice for the Lord, each offered only their “first and best” to the altar. When Abel’s offering pleased the Lord, he received the Lord’s blessing. To Caine, God said nothing, “turned His face” and did not bestow his blessing.

Caine asked his father Adam why the Lord did not accept his sacrifice; Adam told him to search his offering for any flaws or blemishes: “For the Lord will have no thing that is marred, But only the most perfect and beautiful of offerings”. Caine then asked his brother Abel why the Lord was not pleased with his offering. Abel reminded Caine that the earth was cursed for man’s sake; (therefore anything grown from the earth, that was offered to the altar, would be flawed) Abel bade Caine to “Give unto God that which is not born of the earth, and it’s blood shall be pleasing to Him.” (As Abel’s offering of Lamb’s blood was.)

In (Possibly) Caine’s own words: “So I did as he said, and I offered up blood. I did as my father said, and offered up that which was perfect and beautiful. I did as God commanded, and offered up the first and best of all I possessed.”

The sky darkened, a cold wind blew from the gates of Eden and the voice of the Lord boomed forth:

“Caine, what have you done? The blood of your brother cries out to Me from the earth. The ground has opened up her mouth to drink his blood. First killer of man be accursed by My word. The very earth shall reject you, A fugitive and wanderer shall you become, Outcast from the sons of Adam until the end of time.”

Caine answered thus:

“Then how shall I live? Every man that sees me shall know of this curse. Every hand shall be turned against me.”

“I will set My sign upon you,” He said.”All men shall know by its presence not to harm you. He who does shall be cursed sevenfold, And he who tries to slay you will earn My eternal wrath.”

Caine then forced back his tears of rage, his tears of sorrow, and hardened his heart against the Lord: “Such offerings I would not give him, nor any sacrifice from my heart.”

“So be it.” Caine said unto the Lord, he turned his face from Him, and set off into exile.

Enter Lilith:

For beyond the land of Eden, lay the land of Nod where Caine ran to. He saw lands to be tilled and animals to be tamed; yet he would not do God’s work. Caine cursed his existance and refused to give glory to God. He wandered alone long into the night; then upon him came a woman. Garments dark as night, woven from shadow. Skin as pale as the moon with a chill as winters grasp. Eyes and lips glowing as embers in the night. Caine questioned who this woman was, she responded as ” I am Lilith…second created from God. First banished.”

Lilith of unnatural power; with the belief of a survival of the fittest. Lilith taunted Caine, showing him her dark power but not teaching it to him. So he took her blood, devoured her powers. Believing he became stronger, with the belief of survival of the fittest; he took it upon himself to taunt Lilith and the Children of Seth. The belief of conquoring the brood of Seth and “if the shall worship me, they are free to do so.” And so came temptation
