Religion or Science
I was raised Christian so I am familiar with the Adam and Eve bit. I even took it literally at the time(didn’t we all) and I believed there was a talking snake and all that. It was nice — children love stories.
As I started to grow though, questions started to hit me.
If God is all knowing, how come He walked in the garden all clueless that the fruit of wisdom had been eaten?
I am not going to deal with the questions in my head but the point is, they didn’t add up. The whole story was full of holes and when I considered other children's stories, like the ones about the tortoise or the lizard, I saw that these stories were not really representations of actual events, but they were means of teaching lessons. Their biggest giveaway being where they tell you how a particular thing started. For example.
- There was a party in the sky and all the animals were invited. The tortoise wanted to cheat everyone out of their food and so he was thrown out of the skies. He fell and broke his shell and that’s why the tortoise shell looks cracked.
- Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit because the snake deceived them and when God found out, He cursed them and that is why labour is painful, man has to hustle and snakes move on their belly.
As I said, the creation story in Genesis had all the makings of a made-up story but there was still something about it. I asked myself, how could a made-up story be so potent? How could it survive generations and how the hell does everybody still believe it?
The answer came in the most unusual way and when it did, it proved to me that the creation story wasn’t entirely made up, it was just covered up and downplayed to resemble fiction — but why would they do that? Why would they have us think that everything happened just as Genesis said? I don’t have that answer; but I can tell you what I found.
David Icke and Zachariah Sitchin
When we decide to clear our minds of prejudice, we know the truth once we hear it. These men gave me my answer about the events that would later be documented as Genesis…and it correlated with my science class. Here is how it made sense.
The men mentioned above have stated (based on findings) that we are the result of genetic modification from an advanced race we called the Annunaki (those who came from the heavens). They say that the Annunaki came to earth in search of Gold. When they came, they saw the beings on the planet were not smart. The aliens needed to make workmen out of them to carry out the mining so they got to work; manipulating and merging DNA. After a series of tests and failures, they were able to create the first Man which they called Adamu.
This took me back to science class when my teachers said that there was homo-habilis, then homo-erectus, and finally homo-sapien. Oh my God! it was making sense.
Then I reread Genesis
Let us make man in our image and likeness
Of course!! I always wondered who God was talking to when He said that. I mean the bible made it seem like he was all there was before creation started…
So I got to see that “God” had a team who was involved in this creation and it was most likely a team of highly qualified scientists.
From the writings that have been discovered, we find that all the experiments failed until a part of the soil was added to the mix. And I remember that Genesis stated man was made from the dust of the earth.
While there are a lot more parts to this story, like what happened when the Annunaki wanted to go back to their planet because of an asteroid that was about to hit the earth and one of the aliens asked a man (who was a hybrid) to build a device that could protect them from the storm… That’s for another day though.
I’ll leave this for us to think about. Find out about David Icke and Zachariah Sitchin to read full reports on this.
If you are Christian, please I mean no disrespect for the religion. I feel, in fact, that I believe Genesis more now that the aesthetics have been torn off and I see how it marries into the theories of science. A religious person may say it is not our place to dabble into some mysteries as those are the domains of gods. To that, I will respond with a bible passage that says we are gods — and I feel we owe it to ourselves to live up to the image and likeness of our maker. Everything can be explained with the right amount of study.
