What part of Scripture in the Bible does it say he is the Lord of Sirius, I would like to look it up, sounds interesting! If they say the same thing, then it looks like Christianity and Islam have been fighting for centuries over something they can't realize - in the most part, they teach the same thing.

I've never heard of the "hybrid" thing this site presents, as Scat is wondering about...personally I cannot remember reading this, unless I somehow missed it over my years of reading the Bible...

very true, couldnt have said it better myself, but i can equal it with another saying-
the only thing wrong with christianity is the christians.

and time and time and time again i say that the reason the bible is so similar to other texts is simply because thats just what it is...text. its a freckin book.

the similarities are simple allusions, like the biblical allusions in movies like bravheart, the allusions to the longlasted irish uprising in a portrait of the artist as a young man, the list goes on and on...

why is it so hard to believe stories from alice and wonderland (apart form the fact that the author was on acid, it was just an example) yet so easy to believe stories from the bible?

its a freckin book. beautifully written, wonderfully crafted, eloquntly spoken, and a freckin book.

This is excatly the way I feel!!!! But about the Gensis story. What if that story wasn't about the true God the Most High. Aren't there repitilan aliens?


This is exactly what I was suggesting. Just because a reptile evolves doesn't mean it isn't still a reptile. Aren't we still apes? Homo Sapien? The Great Ape? Dogs are dogs, feline is feline, whether demesticated or not. Birds are so far down the evolutionary chain that they are no longer reptiles, just as we are no longer fish or single celled ameoba. From what I've come to understand of the greys, they still consider themselves reptilian, and during the time of Adam and Eve, they would most definitly have considered themselves reptilian... especially if they were trying to separate themselves from "god".

If the Greys are millions of years more evolved then us, then they wouldn't be reptiles only a few thousand years ago when this happened.


I do apologize. I'd have to do some serious digging to find out for sure, but I think it was actually something like a couple hundred thousand years, but I may even be wrong on that. Basically the greys evolved from dinos that made it through the great extinction. One can only assume that they may have been in their 'cavelizard' stages during the extinction, but this may have been just enough to survive, and would've also forced a bout of evolution. One could also assume that the 'greys' weren't the onlyspecies of lizard evolving to intelligence, just as us humans had our neandetal cousins. Maybe these Draconians were from earth as well... who knows, just speculation.

A couple of observations here:

1. I read somewhere that the serpents throughtout history were really reptilians, but reptilians were not allowed to be spoekn of or pictured.
Using that idea, the snake throughout hisotry makes somewhate more sense.


Furthers the idea, and if it is true, furthers an idea that god is trying to keep people ignorant in order to fill his own agenda, which would be a selfish deed, indeed! I know an argument will arise against this idea, probably saying that God was protecting us. From what? The greys, who had advanced technology? This would mean that God only wants us to evolve at a certain rate, which may have been NOT in the best interest of Humans. If we would have obtained knowledge and technology much earlier in history, it could've been put to use long before humans formed prejudice. I know what I'm trying to say, but it's hard to get out of my head. Basically technology would've been advanced LONG before humans became unpure.

I'm not a scholor by any means. I am just a philosopher. I simply rely on your people's input and use philosophical analysis to determine the validity and to put pieces together. Basically I take the work of scholors and find ways of uniting them to complete the big picture. So, what I am asking is for people to post more text that can prove or disprove anything I say. This post has become an excellent analysis of the bible, and we are only at the 'beginning' of it! Heck, maybe a "Book of Truth and Knowledge" could be written from this, lol.

Hmm... 'Philosophical Analyst' sounds nice, doesn't it?

Nice to see someone coming up with new plausable and well thought out theries earthscum

However it wasn't hundreds of thousands of years ago the serpent persuaded Adam and Eve to eat the fruit. To my knowledge those events are what started human civilization, hence it would be the start of the Sumerians which would be around 6,000BC.

I still don't think this would give a serpent enough time to evolve physically (it was already very intelligent) to a humanoid.

Personally I don't believe it to be a Grey at all but I am opened minded to other possiblities.

Good look with your theory, hope I helped nudge it along a little.

The early books of the Bible cannot be taken literally. They were written to tell a story using symbols. Nothing more. When you go down the line of aliens, you are looking for literals that aren't there. The Garden of Eden was not a garden - it was a state of human being. The serpent was not an animal - it was the symbol for the first evil that man came across. The Tree of Knowledge was not an actual tree - it was a representation of freewill.
Remember that Jesus spoke in parables? It is most likely that he copied his style from the Old Testament.

Symbolic teachings form the basis of every major religion so this is no far fetched theory.
Nearly everything that you read in the OT has been created so that people of later generations would be able to understand the story no matter how their societies changed in later times. The Bible had to be written in such a way that it was accesible to all, so for this reason the stories have a broader meaning than discovered at first glance.
If you read and research the story of Noah, you will find that there probably was a flood, but no way did it wipe out every living thing on the planet except for him and the animals he saved. It's a symbolic story to express one man's purity and goodness. Mixing an actual historic event with the tale gives it more impact on the reader and ensures that it will never be discarded.

You are on very rocky ground if you take anything from the OT and look at it for a literal truth from specific words given.

Oke, I haven't read everything, but I first would like to give an answer to Webdevil.

The rephaim

The site is enormous. The outside circle has a diameter of 159 meters and over 37,000 tons of rock went into the construction of the complex. Two openings in the circles may have been used to measure the solar solstice and the rising of Sirius in 3000 BCE.

The giants which build the rephaim made the entrance point towards Sirius 3000 BC. You might think it is coincidence but it isn't because every religion has got that connection for as far I know.

Also look at the quran

The quran

At line 49
49. That He is the Lord of Sirius (the Mighty Star);


A confirmation of Mohammed.

i would strongly disagree with you on this. everyone SHOULD look around and search the different possibilities in order to find the truth, BUT there is ONLY one way that is the truth. refraining from putting your faith in that, once you find it is doing yourself a disservice. by being open to everything, then you deny the truth. by being open to everything, you will always then never be sure of what is right and always be in confusion. you choose to live life not knowing what will happen to you and your ultimate destiny. please everyone, don't believe in a relative truth, or in the idea of no truth. that is the worst thing you could do for yourself.
