Chapter 89: Ham And Japheth
The perplexing Gnostic theory that Ham and Japheth were Nephilim originates within two main Gnostic sects known as the Sethians and the Caini, according to St. Epiphanius. 7 Seth, the foreigner (giant), was carried away both spiritually and bodily so that Sabaoth and other authorities could not prevail over him or murder him, 8 likely via the deluge. From that point forward, Seth no longer served the craftsman (Ialdoboth/Adonai) but acknowledged the parent god from which polytheistic legends originate. Seth then revealed many things, illicit knowledge from heaven and the Seven Sacred Sciences that discredited Ialdoboth and his angels. 9
Just as in most other examples, these audacious claims sound legitimate, with the Judeo- Christian records continually labeled as corrupted, biased versions. But further examination reveals the pantheistic corruptions and further testifies to the legitimacy of Scripture.
In this case, Seth of the Gnostics is not the same righteous and pious Seth, the biblical son of Adam. Gnostics believe in the Emmakha Seth, 10 the founder of the Gnostic race, the living and Immoveable Race. 11 This Seth was the unexplained Gnostic being created in the likeness of the angel Adamas by Autogenes to create a (serpentine) race to somehow ascend above lower- ranked angels. 12 Emmakha Seth was likely a descendant of Cain and a Nephilim. Thus, Gnostic sects of Seth and Caini were both the founders and originating schools of Gnostic wisdom (Zoroastrianism and Enochianism).
Similarly, the giant Japheth, son of Noah or Tubal- Cain, has a similar, disturbing misdirection in polytheist chronology. The Japheth Theosophists refer to as a giant is not the Japheth who was the son of Noah. They have deliberately posthumously confused or fused the antediluvian Japetus/Iapetus with postdiluvian Japheth. Japetus/Iapetus is the giant variant of Japheth, for Japetus/Iapetus was a famous and an original antediluvian giant, a Titan who married Clymene; he was the ruler of Atlantis and father to Atlas. In fact, as you will recall, Poseidon was alternatively known as Japetus/Iapetus, the husband to Clymene and father of Atlas. Iapetus/Japetus in other legends was the offspring of Uranus and Gaea 13 and likely was one of the original Nephilim named after a fallen angel.
Iapetus was the Titan claimed by Hesiod to be the father of Atlas, Prometheus, Nenoetius, and Epimethus. Hesiod further claimed the antediluvian Iapetus fought in the Titan rebellion and was consequently condemned to a place or prison called Tartarus, 14 along with the other rebellious Nephilim. It was from Tartarus that Nephilim likely escaped into the postdiluvian epoch, which would have included Iapetus/Japetus and Utnapishtim. This Titan Iapetus injected Titan bloodlines into the Japhethian Greeks, now renowned as Indo- European Greeks, with his heretofore unexplained refugee Aryan tribes. This is this same Iapetus/Japetus that Annius declared was the forefather to French nobility and the first king of Gaul. 15
