Lets Wikiattack!

A female demon of the night who supposedly flies around searching for newborn children either to kidnap or strangle them. Also, she sleeps with men to seduce them into propagating demon sons. Legends told about Lilith are ancient. The rabbinical myths of Lilith being Adam's first wife seem to relate to the Sumero-Babylonian Goddess Belit-ili, or Belili. To the Canaanites, Lilith was Baalat, the "Divine Lady." On a tablet from Ur, ca. 2000 BCE, she was addressed as Lillake.

One story is that God created Adam and Lilith as twins joined together at the back. She demanded equality with Adam, failing to achieve it, she left him in anger. This is sometimes accompanied by a Muslim legend that after leaving Adam Lilith slept with Satan, thus creating the demonic Djinn.

In another version of the myth of Lilith, she was Adam's first wife before Eve. Adam married her because he became tired of coupling with animals, a common Middle-Eastern herdsmen practice, though the Old Testament declared it a sin (Deuteronomy 27:21). Adam tried to make Lilith lie beneath him during sexual intercourse. Lilith would not meet this demand of male dominance. She cursed Adam and hurried to her home by the Red Sea.

Adam complained to God who then sent three angels, Sanvi, Sansanvi and Semangelaf, to bring Lilith back to Eden. Lilith rebuffed the angels by cursing them. While by the Red Sea Lilith became a lover to demons and producing 100 babies a day. The angels said that God would take these demon children away from her unless she returned to Adam. When she did not return, she was punished accordingly. And, God also gave Adam the docile Eve.

Lilith's fecundity and sexual preferences showed she was a Great Mother of settled agricultural tribes, who resisted the invasions of the nomadic herdsmen, represented by Adam. It is felt the early Hebrews disliked the Great Mother who drank the blood of Abel, the herdsman, after being slain by the elder god of agriculture and smithcraft, Cain (Genesis 4:11). Lilith's Red Sea is but another version of Kali Ma's Ocean of Blood, which gave birth to all things but needed periodic sacrificial replenishment.

In Zoharistic cabala, Samael was also mated with Eisheth Zenunim, Na'amah, and Agrat Bat Mahlat — all angels of prostitution. Lilith is related in the medieval lore as the counterpart of Samael, as the queen of hell.

According to legend Lilith's attraction for children comes from the belief that God took her demon children from her when she did not return to Adam. It was believed that she launched a reign of terror against women in childbirth and newborn infants, especially boys. However, it also was believed that the three angels who were sent to fetch her by the Red Sea forced her to swear that whenever she saw their names or images on amulets that she would leave the infants and mothers alone.

These beliefs continued for centuries. As late as the 18th century, it was a common practice in many cultures to protect new mothers and their infants with amulets against Lilith. Males were most vulnerable during the first week of life, girls during the first three weeks. Sometimes a magic circle was drawn around the lying-in-bed, with a charm inscribed with the names of the three angels, Adam and Eve and the words "barring Lilith" or "protect this newborn child from all harm." Frequently amulets were place in the four corners and throughout the bedchamber. If a child laughed while sleeping, it was taken as a sign that Lilith was present. Tapping the child on the nose, it was believed, made her go away.

What is the truth about Lilith?
Reply
:iconatlantean6:
Atlantean6 Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2014
The truth is simple.  I don't know how many would laugh this off, but here goes.

--Adam, the first man, had 3 wives.  They are: Eve, Sarah, and Lilith.

From Eve sprang all the white folks, she was white.  From Sarah sprang all the yellow folks, she was Chinese in form and skin color.  And from Lilith sprang all the black folks; she was black.

Lilith was beguiled by Lucifer to eat a fermented fruit.  She did and she got drunk and pregnant by one of his agents (who was a beast in the field -- an evolved human).  From her issued forth Cain.  Adam tried to teach Cain about god, but he was obstinate.   And the rest happened from there.

This wasn't in the bible, but came about as a question asked by a friend of mine.  God, the Holy Spirit, wouldn't have talked about what actually happened when Time Began to one of his other special messengers, but that didn't stop Jesus from answering the question.  Adam was a polygamist, he had three wives, and one of them got drunk and had Cain.  That's all it is in a nutshell.

I kinda see Lilith as someone to look up to because she wanted equality for women. And the whole thing with the children makes sense, if you take away a mother's child she feels left with nothing. I don't know, she just seems, not good in that sense, but someone to kind of keep in mind.

when i read that part, my 1st thot was "wow,feminism in heresy". I like feminism. I'm a guy. I'm not gay. I like women. So the natural instinct wud b 2 like feminism. but when u look at the world, I cant help but think "Damn, these guys r fucked up".

Um, that's not really how it works because not all women are feminists.  Yes, feminism should be a choice but it doesn't immediately mean that if you're not a feminist that you hate women.  The view of feminism varies from woman to woman based on her situations.  I viewed a discussion forum on a pagan website and here's links to some of the more interesting comments (www.paganspace.net/forum/topic… (on this page at the bottom, it explicitly speaks of Lilith and women in the porn industry: www.paganspace.net/forum/topic… (more interesting comments: www.paganspace.net/forum/topic…

In my honest opinion, I'm not a feminist but at the same time I'm neither anti-feminist.  3rd wave feminism is supposed to be more diverse and open than the previous two waves of feminism meaning women of any race, religion, or social background can participate.  However, some of the bigotry of 3rd wave feminism has caused this message to be lost
