Khidr also named The Green OneKept in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khidr #/media/File:Khizr.JPG

In the Quran there is the story of the Muslim sage Khidr, who was known as the "Green One". I referred to Khidr in my first book, The Master (Mistress) of Speech, because like the alien Nummo, he was green, immortal and could predict the future.Shannon Dorey, The Master (Mistress) of Speech pp. 139-140.

This picture of him standing on a fish in the sea is very telling because the Nummo and Nummo Ancestors were fishtailed beings. This picture is part of the Small Clive Album of Indian miniatures, thought to have been given by Shuja ud-Daula, the Nawab of Avadh, to Lord Clive during his last visit to India in 1765-67.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khidr #/media/File:Khizr.JPG

Through descriptions of the Nummo and Nummo Ancestors, we can associate Khidr with the ancient fish-tailed Syrian god Dagon, shown above and drawn from an Assyrian wall covering in the royal palace of King Saragon II (721-705 BCE) at Khorsabad in modern Iraq. "The name 'Dagon' was first mentioned in Mari texts, and is from Amorite names in Syria and Canaan dating to about 2500 BCE."Shannon Dorey, Day of the Fish pp. 343-344

Dagon was identified with the Mesopotamian god Oannes, who was described by the Babylonian priest Berosus (3rd century BCE),

...as having the form of a fish but with the head of a man under his fish’s head and under his fish’s tail the feet of a man. In the daytime he came up to the seashore of the Persian Gulf and instructed humans in writing, the arts, and the sciences.

Oannes has also been equated with the Sumerian human-fish hybrid creature kulullu U-An (na) (Akkadian Um-Anu) with the surname Adapa, who came out of the sea with others of his kind to bring culture to the people.https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oannes The name Adapa was associated with the first Apkallu, a group of seven demi-gods described as part man and part fish, and known as the Seven Sages.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adapa I refer to a Greek version of the Seven Sages in The Nummo, and their association with the Eight Nummo Ancestors.Shannon Dorey, The Nummo pp. 10-11


Dagon From Etruscan AmphoraShannon Dorey, Day of the Fish p. 58

One important aspect of the Eight Nummo Ancestors, who had a human upper body and a fish-tailed lower body, is that they were all hermaphrodites. In Day of the Fish, I associate this picture of Dagon, taken from an Etruscan amphora, with the Eight Nummo Ancestors. Dagon's breasts and beard reveal his/her androgynous nature. The Eight Nummo Ancestors were considered the ancestors of humanity, who brought wisdom to the Dogon people.Shannon Dorey, Day of the Fish p. 58

Joseph Campbell associated Dagon (Oannes) with John the Baptist.

John, however, was no Essene, as we know both from his garb and from his diet. He was in the line, rather, of Elijah, who is described in the Book of Kings as a man who wore 'a garment of haircloth, with a girdle of leather about his loins.' And the rite of baptism that he preached whatever its meaning at that time may have been, was an ancient rite coming down from the old Sumerian temple city Eridu, of the water god Ea, 'God of the house of Water,' whose symbol is the tenth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn (a composite beast with the foreparts of a goat and body of a fish), which is the sign into which the sun enters at the winter solstice for rebirth. In the Hellenistic period, Ea was called Oannes, which is in Greek Ioannes, Latin Johannes, Hebrew Yohanan, English John. Several scholars have suggested, therefore, that there was never either John or Jesus, but only a water-god and a sun-god."Shannon Dorey, The Nummo p. 156

In the picture of the bearded Khidr standing on the fish, he holds some type of garland in his hand. "On this Etruscan amphora, the bearded Dagon carries a garland of hearts as he/she swims through the sea surrounded by dolphins."Shannon Dorey, Day of the Fish p. 58

Notice the design on the top of the Dome of Al-Khidr (also spelled Khadr) at Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem shown above. We find the same symbol on the fishtail of the god Dagon above.

There are reports from al-Bayhaqi that Khidr was present at the funeral of Muhammad. It is related as follows: "A powerful-looking, fine-featured, handsome man with a white beard came leaping over the backs of the people till he reached where the sacred body lay. Weeping bitterly, he turned toward the Companions and paid his condolences. Ali said that he was Khidr."https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khidr (Ibn al-Jazari, 1994, p. 228)

In the tale from the Quran, Moses meets Khidr ("the Green One" or "first angel of God") in the desert. They wander along together and Khidr expresses his fear that Moses will not be able to witness his deeds without indignation. If Moses cannot bear with him and trust him, Khidr will have to leave.

Khidr of course proceeds to do things that Moses finds evil. This is because Khidr can see future events that Moses can't see or understand.

The story of Khidr, the Green One, from the Quran may represent a human misunderstanding of the alien Nummo. Throughout the Dogon religion, there is the sense that the Nummo had to leave the Earth so that humans could come to terms with the truth on their own.Shannon Dorey, The Master (Mistress) of Speech pp. 139-140.
