6.15 – FACES OF THE GODS (7.11.14)


Temple Mount. Old City, Jerusalem. It was here that many biblical stories reportedly occurred, including the Binding of Isaac, from Genesis 22. In this story, God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac on Mount Moriah. Abraham sets out to obey God’s command. But after binding his son and preparing for the sacrifice, he is stopped at the last minute by an angel. Conventional interpretations of the story usually conclude that God only wanted to test Abraham’s faith. But Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest the tale has another interpretation.

“In my opinion, god “God” would never ask such a question. So, is it possible that it was a fallen angel-slash-alien extraterrestrial who posed as God?”

“God never demands human sacrifice. Human sacrifice is totally anathema to Christianity and it’s totally anathema to God as a creator. The French philosopher Sartre very famously wrote: if an angel were to tell me I needed to sacrifice my son I’d ask for some I.D.”

“Maybe somebody else impersonating a god. And do we then have somebody stepping in to actually prevent this from happening? Are we, in fact, maybe confronted with two warring civilizations trying to control what is happening in the stories of the Bible?”

“Just like there are good people and bad people here on earth, there is good and bad extraterrestrials out there. Good and evil permeates the entire Universe. Yin and yang. There’s a balance.”

Deep inside the Middle Eastern country of Oman, a mysterious cavern lies hidden far beneath the surface. Called Majlis al Jinn, or “meeting place of the Jinn,” it stretches more than 14 acres underground and is one of the world’s ten largest caves. Many Omanis still believe this cavern and others like it are actually inhabited by supernatural creatures of Islamic folklore called jinn or genies. Mystical creatures that are usually invisible to man.

“One interesting aspect of the Jinns is an element of free will. They’re like angels, but we think of angels in the west as under the direct command of the divine powers. But the jinn can make some decisions for themselves and some of them are a little contrary or curious in their way of being.”

According to Islamic theology, genies often reveal themselves to humans with messages, which can be either benevolent or deceptive. But is it possible that genies actually exist? If so, where did they come from?

“When we talk about genie, genie in a bottle, it’s very interesting, because you rub the bottle and then the genie comes out of it and it fulfills your wishes. Well, let’s look at this from a modern day perspective. If you have a little container and you push a button and a hologram comes out, then could that be a genie in a bottle? And according to the Ancient Astronaut Theory, that is exactly what happened where extraterrestrials used holograms in order to relay messages. That is, essentially, a genie in a bottle.”

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

Like angels, jinn are said to be able to appear and disappear at will, and are sometimes only heard as disembodied voices. But while some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe this behavior resembles that of extraterrestrials, others claim that angels, jinn and other supernatural creatures have origins right here on Earth. They call these beings “ultraterrestrial.”

“Ultraterrestrials are possible beings that travel and visit us from other dimensions. We know that we all vibrate in the three-dimensional space at a certain frequency. It’s very possible that other beings vibrate at a higher frequency and are able to pass more easily into other dimensions.”

– Jason Martell
(Founder, AncientSchool),
(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

“The ultraterrestrial theory would also explain the folkloric creatures, the angelic creatures any sort of experience of a strange, supernatural, or alien being that’s occurred throughout history.”

Thomas E. Bullard, Ph.D. (Folklorist)

Angels and demons. Giants and genies. Did they actually exist? And, if so, could they have come here from somewhere out of this world? But why? Were they sent here to shape mankind’s past or its future? Did they mean to do us harm or good? Perhaps even more importantly: could they still be here, living among us, undetected?
