Question: Ask The Nuwaupians, did you know your teacher lied about Adam being a Sumerian word meaning man, or of the ground?

Answer: They won't know where to begin answering this question.

 

"The word (Aw Dawm) finds its roots in the Akkadian language as Ah-Dam meaning "Life Blood", and for the Ashuric word "Dark Red Brownish". So as you can see, a creation concept of a man named Adam is in actuality talking about the whole earth according to the Hebrew and the dust of it by the time the word Adam got to the Sumerians, the meaning of the word became "Blood Clot" Congealed..."

-Questions To Dr. Malachi Z. York-El About the Beginning pg. 88

There's a couple of misleading statements in this sentence.

According to A Concise Dictionary of Akkadian pg. 4 it does have the word 'Adamatu' where the word Adam is derived, but it's not the word, Ah-Dam meaning "Life Blood", nor does it have anything to do with the biblical character.

1.) Adamatu: (red blood) (a dark-colored bodily discharge) 

2.) Adamatu(m) (a plant) with red blossoms; dark red earth used to dye. 

 

The deception comes in claiming this is referring to the whole Earth (i.e.) dust of the ground or creation of man. 

 

The other deceptive statement to the reader is, 

"...by the time the word Adam got to the Sumerians, the meaning of the word became Blood Clot Congealed..."

This show a total lack of knowledge of basic Akkadian.  The Sumerian culture and language predates the Semetic Akkadian language, it's not related to Eme.gir, (Sumerian). Akkadian has some borrowed words from Sumerian, however "Adamatu" Adam or Aw Dawm, do not share any Sumerian origins or connections.

 

Adam in Eme.gir (Sumerian) is a habitation.

adam: "habitation" (37x: Ur III, and in Old Babylonian) written, as a logogram a2-dam "habitation", in Akkadian, it's namû to inhabit.

"In the great mountain ranges, let the teeming multitudes grovel in the dust for her. Messenger, speak to the lord of Aratta and say to him: "Lest I make the people fly off from that city like a wild dove from its tree, lest I make them fly around like a bird over its well-founded nest, lest I requite (?) them as if at a current market rate, lest I make it gather dust like an utterly destroyed city, lest like a settlement cursed by Enki and utterly destroyed..."

line in 119 "...aratta(ki) a2-dam den-ki-ke4 nam ba-an-kud city...,

"...lest like a settlement cursed by Enki and utterly destroyed..."

it uses "a2-dam" ADAM, a habitation, this word is not in any way related to the Akkadian word, "Adamatu", if York would have researched then studied this word for himself, he would not have made such a huge mistake 

 

York also mentions on pg. 104,

"Adam is merely a term meaning (man. or mankind) from the cuneiform word ADAMAH, meaning Earthling also meaning of the ground".

That's a lie,

1. Adam in Sumerian cuneiform is a "habitation"

2. Man in Sumerian is "lulu-Man written, lu2-lu7; lu2-lu7lu "man; humans" in Akkadian, amēlu; lullû 

3. Earth in Sumerian, ki "place" written, ki "place; ground, earth, land; toward; underworld; land, country; lower, down below" Akkadian has it as, ašru; erşetu; mātu; qaqqaru; šaplû.

-The Electronic Pennsylvania Sumerian Dictionary

 

Why would York purposely lie about something so trivial as this?

 

"we didn't believe him, so we checked it out and we found him to be a liar ".
