Everyone is entitled to their own opinion here is mine:
I came across William Bramley's book Gods of Eden and was surprised by his revelations. The book does go into the subject that aliens have had an
impact in our past starting with the ancient Sumerian texts in which the Sumerians write about how the gods became tired of mining on their own and
created a new species by putting a god to death and mixing it with clay, a process that was possibly genetic engineering. The end result was homo
sapien sapiens, a byproduct of the gods and the original homo sapiens. The original homo sapiens or homo sapien neanderthalensis also disappeared at
the same time homo sapiens sapiens appeared suggesting that the gods might have exterminated the original homo sapiens to make room for the new slave
race. Ancient tablets credit one god in particular EA as being creator of the slave race. EA is described as being sympathetic to his creation
fighting for them to gain spiritual knowledge in contrast to his half-brother Enlil who wanted them to suffer and would call for famines and plagues
when they got too noisy. Eventually Enlil called for a great flood to wipe out the homo sapiens. It seems to be agreed that many archeologists believe
there was a great flood in the near east thousands of years ago. The Epic of Gilgamesh claims how a Babylonian named Utnapishtim was approached by EA
and told that a wipe out of homo sapiens sapiens was planned. He was instructed to gather his family and livestock and build a ship to survive the
flood which they did. This story is strikingly similar to Noah's ark as is the story of Adam and Eve. The god or lord god of the bible's Adam and
Eve can be translated as the original god of earth. The story which is entirely symbolic says how Adam who is first man, was created by god from the
dust of ground an idea reflected from the older belief that people were created partly with clay. Adam's wife Eve was also created artificially and
they lived in the Garden of Eden where they were told that all of their physical needs would be met as long as they obeyed their masters and stayed in
the garden. They were also told never to eat fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil which symbolizes an understanding of ethics and justice
or the tree of life which represents how to retain one's spiritual identity and immortality. A snake convinces them to eat fruit from the tree and
become like the gods. The gods did not want mankind to be able to spiritually recover as it would be difficult to make people who maintained their
integrity and sense of ethics slaves and even harder when those same individuals are undowed by physical threats because of a reawakened grasp of
their spiritual immortality. The gods wanted to permanently attach the spiritual beings to their bodies so they used the flaming sword to prevent them
from gaining spiritual knowledge and never rising above material existence. A common misconception is that Adam and Eve were embarrassed about being
naked as they ate from the tree of knowledge but it was not being naked that shamed them it was what nakedness represented. Ancient Mesopotamian
records depict human beings as being naked while working while the gods were fully clothed. The implication is that Adam and Eve were degraded by
their nakedness because it was the sign of their enslavement not that being naked in itself is bad. The brotherhood of the snake was created by EA and
was devoted in the beginning to helping humans achieve spiritual salvation however were incapable to do so much like the snake in the Adam and Eve. EA
was villonized his title changed from Prince of Earth to Prince of darkness and was labeled Satan or the mortal enenmy of a supreme being and keeper
of hell. The brotherhood of the snake created a group of one god religions that such as Islam,Christianity, and Judiasm to keep people divided and
created apocalyptic beliefs that constant final battles are necessary to achieve a new period of spiritual salvation. In my personal opinion and I may
be wrong but it appears today most religions including Christianity and Islam call for final battles with Christianity warning of an Antichrist that
will lead people to one other religion and one government, things that would probably be beneficial in a sense of being united but things the 'gods'
don't want. Interestingly many of Jesus's beliefs are similar to Buddhism notably the "Serman on the Mount. Jesus supposedly did not want to be
called the messiah as he knew that it was untrue and wanted to bring a real spiritual science to Palestine but the brotherhood forced the title on him
leading the Romans to crucify him because of his political pretensions and paved the way for his name to be used to implant the very judgement day
prophecies he opposed.
Religions such as Jehovah's Witness and Islam seem to agree with the Sumerian tablets
In Islam the Devil is referred to as Iblis (Arabic: Shaitan, a word referring to evil devil-like beings). According to the Qur'an, God created Iblis
out of "smokeless fire" (along with all of the other jinn) and created man out of clay. The primary characteristic of the Devil, besides hubris, is
that he has no power other than the power to cast evil suggestions into the heart of men and women.
According to Muslim theology, Iblis was expelled from the grace of God when he disobeyed God by choosing not to pay homage to Adam, the father of all
mankind. He claimed to be superior to Adam, on the grounds that man was created of earth unlike himself. As for the angels, they prostrated before
Adam to show their homage and obedience to God. However, Iblis, adamant in his view that man is inferior, and unlike angels was given the ability to
choose, made a choice of not obeying God. This caused him to be expelled by God, a fact that Iblis blamed on humanity. Initially, the Devil was
successful in deceiving Adam, but once his intentions became clear, Adam and Eve repented to God and were freed from their misdeeds and forgiven. God
gave them a strong warning about Iblis and the fires of Hell and asked them and their children (humankind) to stay away from the deceptions of their
senses caused by the Devil.
According to the verses of the Qur’an, the Devil's mission until the Qiyamah or Resurrection Day (yaum-ul-qiyama) is to deceive Adam's children
(mankind). After that, he will be put into the fires of Hell along with those
whom he has deceived. The Devil is also referred to as one of the jinns, as they are all created from the smokeless fire. The Qur'an does not depict
Iblis as the enemy of God, as God is supreme over all his creations and Iblis is just one of his creations. Iblis's single enemy is humanity. He
intends to discourage humans from obeying God. Thus, humankind is warned to struggle (jihad) against the mischiefs of the Satan and temptations he
puts them in. The ones who succeed in this are rewarded with Paradise (jannath ul firdaus), attainable only by righteous conduct.
Satan was originally a perfect angel who developed feelings of self-importance and craved worship. Satan caused Adam and Eve to disobey God, and
humanity subsequently became participants in a challenge involving the competing claims of Jehovah and Satan to universal sovereignty.
Islam on Adam and Eve
The Qur'an doesn't name this tree and it is always referred to as "the tree". Muslims believe that when God created Adam and Eve, He told them
that they could enjoy everything in the Garden but this tree, and so, Satan appeared to them and told them that the only reason God forbade them to
eat from that tree is that they would become Angels or become immortals.
When they ate from this tree their nakedness appeared to them and they began to sew together, for their covering, leaves from the Garden. As a result
of their sin, they were removed from heaven and placed on Earth to live and die. Consequently, they repented to God and asked for his forgiveness and
were forgiven. It was decided that those who obey God and follow his path shall be rewarded with everlasting life in Heaven, and those who disobey God
and stray away from his path shall be punished in Hell.
Zoaroastarianism was one of the first end of days theories and provided the basis for the apocalyptic ends of days religions that require obedience to
a supreme being.
zoaroastarianism in particular being one of the first end of days theories in which The final savior of the world, Saoshyant, will be born to a
virgin impregnated by the seed of Zoroaster while bathing in a lake. Saoshyant will raise the dead – including those in both heaven and hell –
for final judgment, returning the wicked to hell to be purged of bodily sin. Pretty much what Jesus was set up for and the Antichrist of
zoaroastarianism Ahi Dahaka. Not to mention this is all imparted by a 'god' who didn't do a pretty good job disguising himself in Ahura Mazda.
Furthermore the tower of babel story in the book of genesis claiming 'And the lord said,Look, the people are united, and they all have one language,
and this they began to do, and now nothing will stop them from doing what they take in their minds to do'. There might be a decent reason why the
gods 'scattered them abroad from there all over the face of the earth' but it seems like the gods didn't want people to be united which goes along
with the consistent alien theme of trying to scatter people and pit them against each other and why wouldn't they, a Yale professor suggested that if
the earth ever colonized other planets it would be easier to control them by pitting them against each other. Other hints of brutality of gods to
people occurred on the Jews trip from Egypt to the promise land where Jehovah killed up to 14,000 Jews using various killing methods such as spreading
diseases which is also mentioned as a killing method in the Sumerian tablets. Jehovah told the Hebrews to embark on a campaign of genocide to
depopulate all of the region's existing cities and towns. The genocide was justified by saying that the victims were wicked which could not have been
true because animals and children were slaughtered too and it doesn't make sense to massacre many for the crimes of a few. The genocides also
violated the ten commandments such as Thou shalt not kill when they killed the inhabitants of Canaan or thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's
house...nor any thing that is thy neighbors when they committed genocide to take away the land of their neighbors. The puzzling behavior of the people
being attacked also calls into question the god's influence with only one city choosing to surrender and the rest choosing to fight and be
slaughtered, isn't it more likely that the people would surrender or offer to move peaceably. One text joshua 11:19-20 states 'There was not a city
that made peace with the children of Israel, save the Hi-vites the, the inhabitants of Gib-eon, all others they took in battle, For it was the Lord
who hardened their hearts, that they would go against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly, and that they might find no favor, but
that he might destroy them' Keep in mind this was the same Jehovah that sent the children of Israel on a genocide campaign against these very
Another example of the 'gods' manipulating others is the crusades.
Islam the final revelation of god honors Moses and Jesus as the two previous messenger of god and that it was the duty of all Jews and Christians to
convert to Islam. Christianity already said in it's apocalyptic theory to beware of false messiahs such as Mohammad or the next in line of succession
of. Christianity says that Jesus Christ will lead the forces of good (believers in Christianity) over those led under the false prophet or Antichrist
(Mohammad or whoever was next in line of succession leading the Muslims) and after the final battle when Jesus is triumphant there will be a day of
judgement and those that believed in Christianity will be granted entrance into heaven. Unfortunately 'final battles' keep happening and there is no
second coming of whoever and no spiritual salvation for 1000s of years.
Let's be serious here mythology should not be used as conclusions but the Sumerian tablets are a strange case because unlike Romans and Greek
civilizations they were not super advanced so they probably were writing about what they actually saw and the Adam and Eve story correlates with it.
Furthermore Jehovah was a god that killed people reportedly thousands was this all just myths created by the original Sumerian stories? Some
historical evidence shows violence in Jericho such as bodies some don't but can we really think of Jehovah as a human if the Sumerian tablets match
the story of Adam and Eve with the true good god being the devil and the bad gods being good. The bible is a collection of stories but they have to be
taken somewhat seriously because it was their only way of writing history, some stories might be fiction but some stories are probably based on real
events much like today, we have fiction and non-fiction. Though the source might be biased like a news source that has a certain political affiliation
we have to look through it. There is no reason why gods should be allowed to get away with genocide campaigns and be praised and we should say 'there
was a reason' because if we are to believe our supreme being is perfect or someone whose standards are worthy to live by than killing is no way to
teach people a lesson fact the opposite is true if someone misbehaves the best way to teach them a lesson is by excommunicating them from society and
keeping them locked up instead of killing them. In conclusion it seems possible that we have been manipulated Machiavellian-style(ends justify the
means, giving support to both sides of a conflict, remaining hidden as the true instigator of the conflicts, be viewed as the benevolent source which
can solve the conflicts) by a third party(aliens).
