There is also ties of the anagram hamada/hamadah to Japan.
In my book, The Goddess Aped, as part of his punishment for “acting as God” in creating his mate, anointing her and teaching her magic, Adam is cursed to work the land (gardner or caretaker).
I believe that Adamah was the original name of Adam’s second wife/mate. She was “made in his image” and given a variation of his name. And her name evolved as his did.
The name “Adam” means red and it is assumed that “Adamah” means red clay.
In the story of Cain and Abel, with Cain swallowing Abel’s blood, one might assume that Cain was a vampyre but I do not believe that was the case. Note that the anagram of Cain is Inca and the anagram of Abel is Bela. Both Adamah (destroyed with Sodom and Gomorrah) and Bela (not destroyed) were ancient cities.
The Inca civilization was known for child sacrifices. And the notion of Biblical “fruit” may have been children. So if one took a bite of their own child, was it tasting the blood or flesh or having a sexual relationship that was otherwise forbidden?
And, of course, there was a goddess named Carpo. She was the goddess of the fruit of the earth (read: goddess of mankind, as well as all food and bounty). This is very similar to the designation of Venus as “goddess of the garden” in Pompeii and would make perfect sense if Adam was relegated to tending to the garden. And here is more credence lent to the theory in my book, The Goddess Aped, that Aphrodite was a goddess, while Venus was a new identity taken on by Eve to rival Aphrodite.
