Tropical Storm Tammy formed off Melbourne, Florida, which is in Brevard County #19, for the Federal Judiciary. The storm formed the day after the nomination of Harriet Ellan Miers for the Supreme Court (federal judiciary). Miss Miers belongs to a pro-life church. The name, Tammy, is derived from the Hebrew Tammuz, which comes from the Sumerian Dumu.Zi(d). and is synonymous with the Greek Adonis. The ancient Babylonians worshiped Tammuz to produce life in the womb, which the Bible denies and denounces (Ezekiel 8:14-15). Thus, Tammuz was the embodiment of the Pro-Life apostasy. The Bible teaches that God gives soul-life at birth, and the only life in the womb is biological.
Tammuz was a food or vegetation deity embodying four different aspects: a power in the sap that rises in trees and plants, a power in the date palm and its fruit, a power in the grain and beer, and a power in milk. This fourth aspect was his most characteristic one; since he represent the mysterious potential in the female sheep of giving birth to young and of producing milk with its life-giving powers, he became the patron saint of shepherds, the god of fertility and producer of new life who managed and cared for cattle pens and sheepfolds.Among the abominations observed by Ezekiel before the Fifth Cycle of Discipline was the women weeping and wailing for Tammuz outside the Temple in Jerusalem. This was idolatry. The worship of Tammuz was primarily a woman's cult. Tammuz was represented as a handsome, attractive youth with no responsibilities (a philanderer).
Of the three most important Sumerian ritual dramas (in which cultic concepts were acted out in a formal setting in order to coerce the gods to perform the desires and fulfill the needs of the actors), two related directly to Tammuz, cohabited with a priestess (representing the goddess Inanna/Ishtar, the lover of Tammuz) to insure that the power of fertility would pervade nature and guarantee prosperity and plenty. The second was based on the observable fact that the end of spring brought the end of new life in nature, the end of the milking and lambing season; the obvious conclusion was that Tammuz, the power who had produced all these blessings, had died! So a dramatic lament for the dead god was held annually at the beginning of the hot, dry summer, in the fourth month of the Mesopotamian calendar (our late June and early July), the month that was named “Tammuz” after him. In the rites he was mourned by women who represented his bereaved mother, sister, and young widow.1
Tropical Storm Tammy appeared on the satellite map as a vulture eating carrion. After the fall of a nation,, the vultures eat the dead. Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Stan brought death and destruction, and Tammy represented the vultures who eat the corpses. Tammy, like Tammuz, was identified with the dead. The vulture of Tammy appeared to herald the release of the new Iraqi constitution to the people in preparation for the October 15th referendum. This is the symbol of dead on arrival (DOA). Israel and the Palestinians are celebrating the New Year according to their ancient calendars. But, ironically, the Hebrew month of Tammuz (June-July), associated with Tammy, is named for death and not the new birth of the new year.
