What IF It Were True?
Ancient beings existed at one time and we know this because history tells us. What is history? A conglomeration of facts and eyewitness accounts
written by someone, somewhere, sometime that have been passed along from generation to generation.
Facts that have been processed as truth and transcribed by various civilizations are very difficult to verify, not to mention the translation of such
accounts from languages far from understood by those doing the translating.
Sumerian text can not be translated in English accurately because there is no way to verify anything. Just because it was, does not make it true. Of
course, Sumerian is not the only language that has been translated and bounced about as being fact. There are dozens of ancient text that have been
translated and none of them can actually be verified as being the truth.
Not all of them pertain to religion, but a great deal of them do and are read daily and used as a way to pray in the name of some fictitious god by
various religious sects. All of these religions claim theirs is the truth. How is that possible? It is not feasible for all of them to be true.
Religion is not the only subject bandied about to be fair. There are many other subjects translated over time that have been passed along as being
historically accurate and yet they too are based on non-verifiable facts. One such subject is visitation from alien beings; there is even a
television series that calls itself Ancient Aliens.
Ancient Aliens does not come out and say, this is the truth, they simply say, "What if it were?" the truth. They spend much time with various
cultures, looking at ancient monuments, reading ancient languages, making assumptions about possible ways these things came to be and possible ways to
interpret the text; sometimes they overstep the boundaries by surmising and supposition, but none of what they put forth can be verified as fact.
We can agree though that there are many strange artifacts and monuments and text that leave us scratching our heads...wondering how the heck they got
here and what there purpose is. What if it were true? What if we have been visited by ancient aliens for the duration of our existence on this
planet? All those religions that claim to have all the answers hardly seem pertinent.
Maybe what we are seeing and reading becomes fantasy if the beings we think are gods are just us from the future using time travel to go back and
check on things and make little tweaks in the DNA sequence. Maybe, this Jesus character is actually a time traveler and not the son of god? Maybe
Moses was an alien from another galaxy? Maybe the pyramids are spaceships waiting to be reactivated?
My point is this...none of what we think is the truth can be verified and none of what has been put forth as truth can be verified...any number of
possibilities exist and I can write a religious text and I can write a series about ancient aliens and I can claim to be the son of some god and
really...you could not say with a certainty of doubt that what I do say is not true.
We still have a life to live in whatever existence we are in and we still have free will to make choices about what we do believe and a great deal of
what that is comes down to faith or does it? Are you not constantly bombarded by others on what to do and how to behave? Do you have free will? Or
are you bound to what others raise you to believe? History books and religious texts and preachers and teachers and politicians? There are those
that want to have faith in something and cling to something as being truth when in fact what they are clinging to is a false faith and false truth
based on non-verifiable facts.
You were born with the truth without ever having to be told what the truth is...that is faith, that is without blemish...the truth is you live in a
man made society, bound to the rules and regulations governing this world and take what is said as fact rather than what it is.
Science is not based on truth and neither is religion, yet both will claim they are the one truth. Scientific studies are wrong all the time.
Religion is based on conjecture. Having an argument about the validity of either has no merits.
Sure, you can tell me all kinds of facts about both and I will simply say to you, prove it. You will not be able to...no matter how hard you
try...prove anything to me about any of the religious texts or science books that are in existence today. You will tell me about jesus on the cross,
you will tell me I am going to hell for my wicked ways, you will show me ufo pictures on a cave, you will talk to me about the dinosaurs, you will
tell me I am wrong about all of it...and I will tell you you are right, I am wrong about all of it. I will then turn around and say to myself...what
if it were true?
