3.16 – ALIENS & THE CREATION OF MAN (11.23.11)

ADAM & EVE [17d]

The Hebrew Bible. In it, the Book of Genesis describes how God created the first two humans, Adam and Eve, in the Garden of Eden and told them to “go forth and multiply.” For centuries, scientists and theologians have debated whether this story of the Creation of Man was mere myth or historical fact.

“The Torah mentions that humanity is made out of the dust of the Earth, and that God breathed life into this to make us animated. Here is the breath of soul, the breath of vitality, the divine breath which suggests that with the spark the life force that makes a human body tick is divine in its nature.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

In 1987, scholarly disagreements over the origin of man intensified with the discovery that the genetic lineage of every living person could be traced back to a single woman who once lived in Africa.

“It’s pretty well established by now particularly from the molecular, the DNA record that Homo sapiens did originate at one place in Africa and after having become fully modern in the sense of intellectually modern, spread out to occupy Europe, to occupy Eastern Asia and the old world in general.”

  – Dr. Ian Tattersal (Curator of Anthropology, American Museum of Natural History)

“It is sometimes called the Eve model, not meaning that we all descended from the same woman but it does mean that there was a woman in that early population migrating out of Africa who was the only female, who ultimately left her genes in every modern person.”

– Craig Stanford, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Anthropology & Biological Sciences, USC)

But is it possible that mainstream science and the Book of Genesis are both pointing to the same moment in ancient time when modern man first appeared on Earth.

“The myth of Adam and Eve, I think, it’s not a myth, I think it’s a true story. I think Adam and Eve were on this planet they were the first human beings that we know of, and they helped populate this planet. What is the Garden of Eden? I think it just happened to be the area that the genetically manipulated human beings, Adam and Eve, were placed. That’s where they lived. That’s where they started to breed. And that’s where the populations of the planet started to grow.”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

If Adam and Eve actually had existed as described in the Hebrew Bible, might this also mean that a serpent really did tempt them to eat from the Tree of Knowledge? And if so, might this account have been an effort to describe the sudden awakening of the modern human mind, when man first became an intelligent being.

“In the Bible it says that if you eat from this tree you will be like god. Satan in a form of a snake tempts Adam and Eve and promises them that they will be like god The knowledge that Adam and Eve acquire as well as humanity in general, gives man the ability to eventually carry out genetic manipulations.”

Peter Fiebag (Author, The Eternity Machine)

“So what was this Tree of Knowledge? Is the Tree of Knowledge in fact a helical DNA sequencing in our own bodies that was genetically engineered by extraterrestrials 50,000 years ago,  so that we would have the abilities that we have today? In my mind, it’s our DNA itself that is the Tree of Knowledge. But why was this suddenly a bad thing? It would seem that the aliens some of them wanted us to have this knowledge, to be like the gods, but others said no, no. Man is not to have all of this knowledge. This is also the same story of the Greek god Prometheus, who, against the orders of the other gods, comes down to Earth and gives mankind the knowledge of fire. But because of this gift to mankind, he himself, as a god, is, like Satan, he’s banished from the Earth. And why? Because he helped mankind to have greater knowledge.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“The whole idea or concept of Satan is based on a misunderstood visit by extraterrestrials in the remote past. According to the Ancient Astronaut Theory, the reason why we have the idea of a Satan today is because there might have been some type of a mutiny between good and bad extraterrestrial factions in the remote past. And so the mutineers were cast out by the commander and they became known as the evil fallen angels, which they never were.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

If as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe, extraterrestrials were responsible for providing humans with intelligence, might they have also given man the ability to speak?

“Our voice box, our larynx is so different than the apes – even the chimpanzee who’s our closest cousin – that we’re able to produce sounds and produce language. To a scientist today, that’s almost like it was genetically designed so that we can say words and sing.”

– Philip Imbrogno (Astronomer),
(Author, Files From the Edge)

“There really isn’t anything more advanced than the human language – so many different cultures, dialects, languages around the world. And the very fact we can communicate on such a deep, extensive level – that really sets us apart from all other animals. Who invented language? Where did that come from? Was it something instilled in us? I think there is a mystery to it, that to a large degree science and the world of history, even archaeology are still scrambling around for answers. Maybe we shouldn’t be looking down here for answers maybe we should be looking up there.”

– Nick Redfern (Author, Memoirs of a Monster Hunter),
(The Real Men in Black), (Final Events),
(The World’s Weirdest Places),
(Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind),
(Bloodline of the Gods), (The NASA Conspiracies),
(On the Trail of the Saucer Spies:
UFOs and Government Surveillance)

“We are told in the bible that we are made into the image of God. What does that mean? Does it mean that we were made physically in somebody’s image? And so, therefore, the question namely whether we are descendants from apes or some other creatures on this planet or whether we have been truly engineered can be answered by mythology. Mythology is able to say that we are not descending from the ape, but that something happened on this Earth and an alien intervention came and we were the end result of this.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“In my opinion the extraterrestrials, by an artificial mutation they created the intelligence of human. Then the extraterrestrial disappeared. And some of our ancestors had again sex with their ancestors, with ape-like beings. And that was called into mythology, “original sin.”  Then they return again, the gods, they realized what happened and they decided to destroy the whole race by a great flood, and to restart the experiment again with what we call in mythology, Noah. That’s all text. That’s the way it is.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

“It would appear that extraterrestrials came here, used great apes, other early hominids, created what would be Neanderthal man, or Homo erectus, somebody similar to us, and then refined that hominid until they came up with Homo sapiens and then the other early hominids were destroyed.”

 – David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Might the biblical account of Adam and Eve and Noah’s Ark really be the retelling of extraterrestrial events, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? Perhaps further evidence can be found in the archaeological remnants and eyewitness accounts from man’s earliest known civilization.
