Men owe to themselves the task of researching their origin and evolution as a society. We owe to ourselves this reflection to understand our daily universe, to understand where the technological development is taking us, and to avoid making the same mistakes that led us to crisis, conflicts and the extinction of cultures.
Unfortunately, we haven’t followed that path and, on the contrary, we have filled ourselves, throughout history, of dogmas and taboos that have stopped us from thinking outside the box. For instance, humanity thought, for centuries, that the Earth was the center of the Universe without having any proof of that, although many scientists already had evidence of the contrary. Accepting this took centuries and brought along a scientific stagnation.
Let’s talk about the mystery that has challenged science for centuries: How did men appear on Earth?
For hundreds of years, while scientists still hadn’t developed any theories to explain the presence of men in this planet, religion had the only say: Men were created by God. For the Catholic religion we were created from a piece of clay. And so we lived for nineteen centuries, until Darwin came along and established that God didn’t create us from clay but we were a product of evolution, in which a natural selection made us impose over other weaker species; this is, millions of years ago, apes slowly evolved to become humans.
Since then, our vision changed: The Genesis story about Adam being created from clay became a legend, and we all came from apes.
However, despite understanding that we spent nineteen centuries believing we came from clay, we didn’t learn from experience and locked ourselves in another dogma.
We got stalled on an incomplete theory, considering no remains have been found to complete the evolutionary chain established by Darwin. How can we explain that apes evolved little by little over three million years just to take an evolutionary leap and become what man is today in only 60,000 years? This is a reason for doubt and controversy among scholars, and we shouldn’t remain impervious.
The “missing link” is still missing and we, like real apes, are not looking for other theories.
Nowadays, there are many researches under way, offering alternatives to Darwin’s theory.
According to Francis Crick, Medicine Nobel laureate and discoverer of the DNA, the genetic code we have on Earth is universal. Plants, animals and human beings share the same genetic code, each one having its variations but always within the same genetic code. What determines that a life-form is green or blue is the same in plants, animals and human beings. Francis Crick stated that life on Earth could be explained as being a case of “guided panespermia”. This means that, billions of years ago, an alien civilization could have sent to Earth a bacteria with an original genetic code that started life in this planet. Crick believes we don’t come from apes, and his theory perfectly fits reality. We all share the same genetic code, perhaps that which arrived with the alien bacteria.
Some daring theories go even further beyond, appealing to our scientific curiosity. This is the case of R. A. Boulay, Laurence Gardner, Christian O’Brien, Andrew Collins, or Dr. Zecharia Sitchin. All of them studied the clay tablets of the Sumerian culture, the first great civilization men knew and that had an inexplicably great scientific development for that time, with progresses in fields such as genetics, music, literature, astronomy and mathematics, and which flourished in Mesopotamia around 5000 years before Christ.
For all these researchers, the Anunnaki, those aliens who came from planet Nibiru searching for metals, were the ones who created men by mixing their DNA with that of species which already existed on Earth. They all base their researches on the Sumerian cuneiform tablets, and maintain that the Sumerian creation myths narrated in those clay tablets were the inspiration and the source for the Biblical Genesis creation stories because they were written at least 4000 years before. For many, the Anunnaki of these tablets are the Nephilim of the Old Testament. We will deal with this subject in detail in future articles since the Anunnaki story deserves to be given serious thought.
In his book ”Flying Serpents and Dragons” Robert Boulay explains:
“It is our thesis that our ancestors were reptile forms who came to Earth from another planet long ago to obtain certain metals. Finding the climate benign, they founded a colony in Mesopotamia. As the climate changed, as shown by the demise of the dinosaurs, it became unbearable for the Anunnaki. It was then decided to produce a primitive worker more suitable to the climate. The result was a Homo Saurus, half apeman and half reptile. This creature, however, could not reproduce itself. To solve this labour problem, the Adam or “lulu” was given dominant mammal characteristics, and the result was the first Homo Sapiens.”
“ I will solidify blood, I will form bone. I will set up man, ‘Man’ [shall be] his name. I will create the man ‘Man. The service of the gods shall be established, and I will set them (i.e., the gods) free.” (Tablilla Sumeria de la creación.)
R. A. Boulay even has answers to the problems posed by Darwin:
“Neanderthal Man had been on the scene for hundreds of thousands of years as the result of a slow process of evolution. It was presumably this apeman that was used in the experiments of the Anunnaki. This apeman is described vividly in the Gilgamesh Epic as the wild man who is “converted” into a civilised being to then become the companion of Gilgamesh in his many adventures.”
Let’s see how and with how much detail Zecharia Sitchin interprets the Sumerian tablets that narrate the creation of the human being. According to Sitchin, after settling on Earth and working hard in the search for metals for their planet, the Anunnaki rebelled and decided they didn’t want to keep working.
“Every single one of us declared war! We have put a stop to the digging. The load is excessive, it is killing us! Our work is too hard, the trouble too much!” (Sumerian tablet which narrates the episodes that preceded the creation of men. Suspension marks have been used to represent illegible fragments.)
Foreseeing the imminent conflict, one of them suggested the creation of a worker who would release them from such a hard task.
“While the Birth Goddess is present, let her create a Primitive Worker, let him bear the yoke, let him carry the toil of the gods!” (Sumerian tablet which narrates the episodes that preceded the creation of men.)
Sitchin believed that the Nephilim or Anunnaki, having arrived on Earth to establish their colonies, created their own slave company, not with slaves imported from another continent but with primitive workers they had created.
Andrew Collins, a scholar on this subject, tells us how Christian O’Brien, a former exploration geologist, also arrived to the same conclusion as Zechara Sitchin when translating the famous cylinder about the foundation of E-Kur and other tablets:
“Christian O’Brien was a reader of cuneiform script and could see, even at a cursory glance, that Barton had misenterpreted much of what the E-kur foundation cylinder and some eight of the ten published Nippur tablets actually recorded, prompting him to retranslate each in turn. What he found shocked him completely. As each new tablet was completes, more and more pieces of a slowly emerging jigsaw began to fit in place. Much of the texts appeared to tell the story of a race of divine beings known as the Anannage or the Anunnaki, the great, or princely offspring, or sons, of heaven and earth, who arrive in a mountainous region and set up camp in a fertile valley. They call the settlement edin.”
None of these scholars could be accused of inventing the stories they relate but of misinterpreting, in the worst case scenario, the Sumerian clay tablets. All of the Sumerian mythology is included in those tablets. It is worth mentioning that this mythology is based on an impressive iconography that, according to Dr. Sitchin and other researchers, would then pass on to other world cultures, such as the Egyptian, the Mayan, or the Aztec.
These examples are only the tip of an iceberg of mental narrowness that is melting and unveiling a knowledge that has been so far hidden under the waters of intellectual shortness of sight as a result of dogmas and taboos that we have been imposing unto ourselves in time.
If you believe that Christopher Columbus discovered America or that we are the sole dwellers of the inscrutable universe, then never mind what you have read here; these are mere reflections of a lunatic that tends to look beyond his nose and always ends up crashing with the infinite.
