I will now put down some information about UFOs and where they are mentioned in the Bible. John Winston. ..................................................................... ..................................................................... The Book of Genesis Accounts of the Creation of Humans We already have referred to the creation story as contained in Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament in the Bible, familiar to generations of Jews and Christians alike. We have already seen that it has been known by Biblical scholars for more than a century that a good part of Genesis is a much abbreviated, heavily edited, Hebrewized and monotheised version of ancient Sumerian texts. The Old Testament consists of a body of literature that was written between the twelfth and second centuries B.C. Thus, when the first books of the Bible were written, the Sumerian texts had been written on clay tablets at least 1,300 years before (~2,5500 B.C.) and the evidence indicates that the stories had been orally passed down for hundreds and thousands of years before that. I'm not saying the Genesis is nothing but an edited, monotheised version of an ancient Sumerian test. Far from it! The Genesis account of our creation might be a conflation of the Sumerian creation story, and at lest one other creation story. There is some evidence that the entity commonly known as Jehovah or Yahweh, worshiped as the one and only God almighty by generations of Jews and Christians, had his own creation and subsequent story which has become entwined with the Sumerian story. When one looks at the creation story in Genesis, one finds not one, but actually three separate stories that relate to the biological creation of humans. First, in chapter 1, verse 26 of Genesis of the King James Version, we read. "and God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness..." Sitchin points out that is one example of where the ancient Hebrew editors must have slipped. "Our image" clearly refers to more than one "god". When the ancient hebrew editors referred to this and a few other examples of plural gods, Sitchin argues, they were probably copying from a Sumerian/Mesopotamian text that told of the assembly of the Great Anunnaki when they decided to create a "primitive worker" to replace the Anunnaki workers in the gold mines. In the next verse we read, "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." (Genesis 1:27) Now "God" is the one, masculine god depicted throughout most of the Old Testament. We move to the second chapter of Genesis to read another version of our creation; And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. As mentioned, Sitchin points out the word "clay" or "dust" came from the Sumerian TI.IT, which means literally "that which is life". Later this word assumed derivative meanings of "clay" and "mud" and "egg". Later, in Genesis, God turned his attention to creating a woman. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof. And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. As discussed in chapter 3, Sitchin believes, that the above quoted passage represents an unknown genetic manipulation to make humans fertile because the first created humans, being a hybrid between two species (the Anunnaki and Homo erectus), was infertile. From the Bible only, all we can say is that in the first version of the creation of humans, God created both male and female and in the second version, God created a man, then a woman out of a rib of the man. In chapter 6, we find out about the third strong influence on mankind: And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them. That the sons of God saw the daughters or men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose... 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 bear children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. Pleiadian Accounts of the Origins of Humans The Hebrew word Nefilim, which is translated as "giants" in the above passage, actually and literally means, "those who have come down", as we have seen from Sitchin's writings. Clearly, the Nefilim means ETs that have come down to earth, as does the phrase "sons of god". We don't know the details of these ET visitors, such as how long they were here, and with how many of the daughters of men they "came into", but clearly if a number of ETs left many babies with the daughters of men at sometime in the distant past, they had to have a significant genetic impact on humans. Possibly we all have several strands of DNA that were formed on another planet or planets in our DNA as a result of the "sons of god" having several intercourse with the daughters of men. Part 1. JW The explanation given in this material might not be the exact thing that happened in our past but it gives a good starting point where to begin our study.
