It's very simple! If you look into the most ancient mythological tales you'll see a story coming up our across the board. It's a story that is as modern as it is ancient.
About 125 thousand years ago, there were "alien beings" put in place to help human society grow. However due to unfolding events, many of those beings instead addopted the notion that they'd try to evolve mankind according to their own theories rather then the accepted rules. It was these beings that became the "fallen angels".

There is a book out there by someone who states a case for the gods and goddesses as being real people. I don't think he says they were aliens, but super powered beings who lived on Earth. Does anyone know the title and/or author?
