Fallen Angels, Aliens, and Giants: Truth or Tale?Bernard Powell Salem-News.com CROSSROADS
Sumer was the first advanced civilization of human beings on Earth, before the dynasties of Egypt.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Recently, I watched the movie The Fourth Kind. While I found the film to be thoroughly entertaining, I immediately knew that the producers claims that the film was based on factual events containing footage from actual hypnosis sessions involving the victims and their therapist were false. In spite of that, what I did enjoy was the fact that the film makers touched on a subject that is of great interest to me, but perhaps not commonly known among the majority of the population.
In the film, residents of a small town in Alaska seem to be having trouble sleeping. They end up seeing a local psychologist who utilizes hypnotherapy to get them to recall the source of their night terrors.
While under hypnosis it is revealed that the patients are being visited and abducted by alien visitors who seem to be subjecting them to a battery of scientific and physical examinations.
Nothing new or original there, but an interesting turn comes about when a non-human voice is recorded in the psychologists house. The voice is speaking in a strange language (as aliens probably would) that is later realized to be Sumerian. At one point in the film, one of the extra terrestrial beings is heard in a recording making references to “our creation” and also stating “I am God.”
This is when I really started paying attention because this plays into a couple of theological ideas surrounding UFO’s and the nature of the beings that pilot them. Currently, more people are probably familiar with the idea that extra terrestrials or “aliens” are believed by some to be angelic or demonic beings that are related to the Bible's account in Genesis 6 of “Giants” or Nephilim (Fallen Ones).
A little background: The ancient civilization of Sumer was located in the region now known as Iraq, and was situated between the Euphrates and the Tigris rivers, an area known as the cradle of civilization.
Sumer was the first advanced civilization of human beings on Earth. Their kingdom flourished about 6000 years ago, well before the dynasties of Ancient Egypt.
The Sumerians were the first to develop a system of writing and record keeping, they had developed an advanced form of mathematics which allowed them to divide into fractions and decimals, and they were also the first to develop a calendar, and were notably keen throughout the region in the area of astronomy.
They drew a model of our solar system with the sun at its center, a fact not known to European or modern scientists until about 300 years ago. They had the first cities and urban planning boards; they had schools which taught language and writing, as well as the sciences of the day such as botany, zoology, geography, mathematics, and theology. Literary works were studied and composed.
There is even evidence that they possessed a rather sophisticated form of technology… what many scholars and scientists believe to be early battery cells have been found throughout the region, they are known as Baghdad batteries and are at least 2300 years old.
Though they were polytheists, the Sumerians had a rather complex religious system in place, much of which parallels Egyptian and Hebraic scriptures. Anyone who has conducted a reasonable amount of study into the religious writings of ancient civilizations would say that it is fair to assert that the Sumerian writings had a great deal of influence on the beliefs of subsequent cultures that emerged from that region.
It is also to be noted that the family of the Patriarch Abraham of the Bible originated from the Land of Ur, which was a city-state of ancient Sumer.
Another similarity between the Sumerian and Hebrew scriptures comes in Genesis 6, where we see that the “fallen ones” or angels that have rebelled against God, come to earth and procreate with human women creating a race of hybrid, half human, half angelic beings. These are known as Nephilim or Napal (fallen ones) in Hebrew. It was because of this mixing that the Biblical account of the story tells us that God decides to destroy humanity, because they have become tainted with angelic “genes.”
Only Noah was found to be “Perfect in his generations,” or untainted and of pure blood.
In the Sumerian text, there are also a race of beings that come from the skies, they are known as the Anunnaki which translates as “those who came down from the heavens.”
According to the Sumerian mythos, the Anunnaki, being highly technologically advanced, spliced their DNA into the genes of Homo Erectus, producing Homo Sapiens to be their servants.
The Sumerians were great at keeping records, excavations of the ancient site shed light on the amazingly advanced civilization of Sumer and with it, thousands of clay tablets containing not only public records of commerce, marriages and military actions, but also advanced astronomical calculation systems and of the written history of the Anunnaki themselves!
It is apparent from detail in those records that the Sumerians believed that the offspring of these aliens were real flesh and blood members of their society.
One of the most impressive finds was a sealed nine foot by six foot room in Sippar holding a set of 400 clay tablets containing an unbroken record of the history of those times neatly arranged on shelves. Like a sort of time capsule.
The recovered records place the location of the Anunnaki laboratory where the first humans were literally produced in east central Africa in the same location on the map where the mitochondrial DNA “search for Eve” places the first woman Homo Sapiens and in the same time-period.
The writings also include detailed descriptions of our solar system matching what we now know and beyond. It describes the orbit of a tenth planet between mars and Jupiter. They say that this planet, called Niburu (which means the planet of crossing) was thrust into our solar system and collided with a planet called Tiamat.
The remaining bulk of Tiamat became Eridu or the Earth, and the fragments that were left became the asteroid belt. Niburu took orbit in retrograde, in an elongated orbit around our sun and passes between mars and Jupiter approximately every 3600 years.According to the texts, this information was given to the Sumerians by the Anunnaki, who came from the planet Niburu. It is believed by some that this information prompted scientists to search for the unknown planet that they refer to as planet X.
This also ties in with 2012 theories, some believe that 2012 actually marks the approximate time that Niburu will cross through our solar system again, an event that would cause many anomalies in the earth, as the planet likely has its own magnetic poles and gravitational pull which could interfere with those of the earth, causing natural disasters. Another interesting note is that throughout The Fourth Kind, the arrival of the beings is somehow connected to the appearance of an owl outside of the witnesses' homes. The Sumerian deity Moloch was depicted as an owl and is named as one of the greatest warriors from among the fallen in John Milton’s Paradise lost.
Whether these similarities are coincidental or not, the result of my own overactive imagination making connections were none are, possibly a side effect of too much study, only the film writers and producers can say, but what about you? Do you believe in the possibility of the existence of extra terrestrial beings?
What of the Sumerians? How did they learn about our universe and solar system without the use of a telescope? And how were they able to draw detailed and precise maps which depicted the position and sizes of the various planets in relation to one another? Is it possible that they were visited by interplanetary beings who taught them sciences? If so, what does that mean to us today?
If there are such beings, do they mean us harm or are they just examining us the same way that we examine wildlife?
Abducting them out of their natural habitations and dwellings and inspecting and tagging them, releasing them back into the wild with implants and identifying marks that help us track them and monitor their migration and mating patterns... makes you wonder...
