Gods or Aliens and the Creation of Man
Three thousand years ago, man believed in many Gods; however, many theorists believe these Gods were misconceptions of alien encounters. In many ancient accounts, early man speaks of a creation story. Ancient astronaut theory, made popular by Erich Von Daniken’s book “Chariots of the Gods,” believe these stories, which are similar in many cultures, are not mere myths, but true stories.
Gods and ancient astronauts both ascended from the stars. Every creation story from the ancient Samarians, to the Hopi Indians, to the Hebrew bible states that otherworldly, heavenly beings created man in their image. In 1947, Bedouin goat herders happened upon a remarkable discovery along the cliffs of the Dead Sea. Approximately 800 scrolls, later discovered to be early works of the Hebrew bible, including books not in the current version, were found. (www.usc.edu/dept) These scrolls, given the moniker the Dead Sea Scrolls, contained the Book of Enoch. Enoch, a prophet and, great-grandfather of Noah, recounted becoming accosted by angels who took him to the heavens and gave him great knowledge. They even told him that his great grandson would repopulate the earth. He was sent back to earth in a cloud of smoke and fire. To ancient alien theorists, this story depicts an otherworldly encounter with alien beings. The description given by Enoch of his ascension into the heavens is often interpreted as the smoke and fire emitted from a spaceship during take-off, according to these theorists. This smoke and fire is even spit out by modern day spaceships. Ancient astronaut believers theorize that Enoch may have misinterpreted myth and magic with technology.
In 1842, in what is now northern Iraq, an ancient Mesopotamian city was unearthed. The races of people were known as the Samarians. There, they discovered the ruins of a great library dating back to 3000 B.C. (www.ultimatebiblereferencelibrary.com) This library...
