When I first began my blogging adventure, I confess, I didn’t have the foggiest notion of what I was doing or supposed to be doing. My web guy at the time insisted: “You gotta do a blog.” And so here we are, almost two years later.
I think I’ve learned a little.
I started out in google blogger and last year switched to WordPress. When the switch was made, the company doing the switching did some quirky things with the formatting. Or maybe it was my lack of blogging experience. But whatever the reason, some of those old blogs need revision and reformatting.
Since we started a journey in December, probing into the many instances in which the Bible and other world religions reveal accounts similar to Ancient Alien encounters, I figured now was the time to resurrect and revise some of those older messy posts. They will help in our research.
In my older posts, I referred to those extraterrestrials visiting Earth in earlier times as Ancient Astronauts, in my most recent posts I call them Ancient Aliens. I’m sure, without me telling you, you know they are the same. But having said that, I’ve just managed to interject two of my keywords into my blog post for today, which I’m told is a good thing for blogging.
Ancient Astronauts: Did They Come In Peace?
The Rock Drawings in Val Camonica comprise one of the largest collections of prehistoric rock art in the world. It holds approximately 250,000 petroglyphs, divided over six separate locations in a valley in the Italian Alps.
In novella one of The Creep Mesquite Anthology, Wyso And The Other Creepy Kids On Gerard Street, an ancient astronaut is observing the children and recording their development. The concept of a celestial observer, and perhaps almighty engineer, is not new to science fiction fans, or science lovers, or ancient astronaut theorists, or anyone for that matter.
Christians today believe God is above watching, guiding, and protecting them. This belief in a higher power, a Creator, who rules from above dates as far back as one wishes to delve, back to the oldest known culture on earth, the Sumerian culture.
One of the most ancient of gods in the Sumerian pantheon is An (Anu) or sky god. A union between Anu and the goddess Ki produced what the Sumerians believed were the Anunnaki.
Dispute over the meaning of Anunnaki can be found while surfing the net. Translations include: princely blood, princely seed, princely offspring, or those who from the heavens came to earth. Whichever translation you choose to adopt, the Anunnaki were seven Sumerian deities thought to be underworld judges.
Sumerians believed that the universe was made up of a flat disc covered by a dome-shaped firmament (sky) and an underworld. The underworld existed underneath earth and was the base of the dome.
The science fiction beings, the Greys, also make an appearance in Wyso And The Other Creepy Kids On Gerard Street. And Greys, in some Ancient Astronaut theorist circles, are the Anunnaki’s android helpers. Ancient depictions of this android race clearly resemble the Greys—small, big-eyed, and android-like. It is this description that is so often reported by humans who claim to have been abducted by aliens.
Those Who From the Heavens Came
Have you ever wondered why there are those of us—average Joes and average Janes—on this earth who walk around in our own little world perfectly content with the order of the food chain. I mean we are on top. Then there are those not so average Einsteins and Maries who pose questions and come up with such things as the theory of relativity and the theory of radioactivity.
What makes a man want to create sometime that would replace a candle? A candle is nice, right? I buy candles all the time and candle light, well, there’s nothing like it for romance. So what makes a man say? We need something better. Yes, we need a light bulb.Or would any of us average earth bound creatures ever consider that we might fly in the sky like birds. Why would we want to?
I—being of the average Jane kind—often pose this question to my self and my standard answer is: Alien DNA.
You are probably thinking: What happy juice is she on? It is legal here in Colorado.
Just think about it for a moment though, and open your mind up to the possibilities.
Influences of the Sumerian civilization, the oldest known culture, can be seen even today. They are credited with inventing the future. Everything from the early development of writing to irrigation farming can be attributed to them.
The Sumerians developed our current concept of time by dividing the day from the night in sixty minute increments—twelve hours of night, and twelve hours of day. Before this division of night and day, people rose with the sun, went to work, and then came home when the sun set. So what prompted the Sumerians to make these changes that ultimately paved the path for the advancement of mankind? Could there have been guidance from the Ancient Astronauts?
The complexity and size of the human brain have rapidly evolved, yet other mammals have not evolved in the same way. Why?
Ancient astronaut theorists (AATs) believe it to be extraterrestrial manipulation of human DNA and that language is the gift of the sky gods. They believe ancient astronauts came to earth during the time of the Sumerian civilization and contributed to its advancements and that of mankind’s.
Oxford University geneticists Simon Fisher and Anthony Monaco identified the Forkhead box protein P2 or FOXP2 gene. This gene is required for proper brain and lung development. Mutations in this gene cause speech and language disorder resulting in major brain and lung developmental issues.
The difference between us and chimpanzees is two substituted amino acids in the FOXP2 gene.
Was this random evolution or a little ET experiment? A look at artwork (below) from the Sumerian culture show depictions of these sky gods that one must admit look a little alien.
We have learned from our research into religions, that the Bible speaks of giants.
When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose (Genesis 6:1-4).
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown (Genesis 6:4 King James Version).
Take another look at the Sumerian artwork above. The giants, perhaps the sons of God, appear to be lovingly holding human women. Could these giants in the Bible have been the Anunnaki? And were the Anunnaki ancient astronauts?
Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you.
The Probe’s Mission Statement
The Probe is a blog devoted to the exploration of the unexplainable, to finding the truth in occurrences that resemble science fiction, and to researching and reporting on topics that could be flung upon the wall of weird. New posts are featured every week.
Were your holidays magical? I’m finishing the last of my egg nog and raising my glass in hopes that it was. Mine was so magical I didn’t get a blog posted last week and I got my first tattoo.
How’s your New Year going? I’m currently revising Books 1 and 2 of my young adult series THE OTHER KIND. Book 1 will be released in February with Book 2 close behind. Fingers crossed. Also, I’m venturing into a new genre as well. My New Year looks pretty terrific. Hope yours does too.
