1.4 – The Mission (5.4.10)

CATACLYSMIC CHANGE [5e]

Life on Earth comes in a tremendous diversity of shapes and sizes. It can be found from the depths of the deepest oceans to the peaks of the highest mountains. But the vast array of life-forms we see today is only a small portion of what has existed on this planet during its millions of years of history. In fact, scientists estimate that 97% of all species that have ever lived on Earth are now extinct.

“Most scientists today will tell us that there have been six major extinction events that have occurred during the history of life on Earth. The most recent of these extinction events was the one that occurred 65 million years ago and wiped out the dinosaurs.”

Michael Cremo (Author, Forbidden Archaeology)

Paleontologists attribute these mass extinctions to natural causes, such as meteor strikes…floods and dropping sea levels. But another theory suggests that these extinctions were not caused by nature, but by alien beings.

“In the ancient Sumerian texts, they can control weather, they can cause droughts, and they did this to humans. They are capable of producing their own disasters.”

Arthur D. Horn, Ph.D. (Author, Humanity’s Extraterrestrial Origins)

But were now-extinct life-forms actually exterminated in order to make way for other, perhaps more docile or desirable species? Was the intent to clear the way for colonization? Or invasion? And if so, what sort of technology would be needed to effect such a widespread change?

“Some theories say that we have that technology now, called scalar technology. We heat up to high, electrical impulses, a certain spot on the water, and that creates a hurricane. And by making a path with that beam, you can track the hurricane. Now,  if we can do that – and this is hypothetical – if we can do that, why can’t an alien culture say, ‘Let’s create an ice age on planet Earth?’ It will kill off the dinosaurs, but pave the way for aliens to implant human beings on planet Earth.”

Did alien beings come to Earth in order to stay? Might they, as some believe, have seeded it with their own genetic offspring? If so, where is the proof? Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists point to myths that describe gods coming down from the Heavens in order to mate with humans.

“Ancient texts talks about the fact that whoever visited the Earth in the remote past, these gods, thought that Earth women were quite beautiful. So, in many occasions, we find stories where those visitors essentially mated with Earth women. It was misinterpreted, misunderstood as something divine that came here. They were flesh-and-blood extraterrestrials.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos

Native American folklore refers to those beings who came down from the Heavens to breed with Earth women as Star People.

“The Star People are extraterrestrial people. They are not from this…this Earth. They visit. They are Star Ancestors.”

Nancy Red Star (Author, Star Ancestors)

“There’s a great deal of interaction between them. Like some of the American Indian star husband tales where some women sleeping outside at night looks up at a star and thinks it’s very beautiful and would like to go there, and winds up finding herself in the morning being pulled up into Heaven and meeting with the supernatural being who was associated with that star and becoming the bride of the star husband.”

Thomas E. Bullard, Ph.D. (Folklorist)

According to Native American mythology, the brides of these alien beings would become pregnant and give birth to Star Children. They would be raised by the native mother until the age of six, when they went to live with their Star Father. Similar stories of intimate encounters between celestial beings and humans can be found in ancient Hebrew and Judeo-Christian testaments often referred to as The Pseudepigraph, or what many refer to as the Apocrypha.

“There are lots of instances in the Pseudepigraph – these are the books that didn’t make it into the Bible – where people are visited by beings that aren’t from this Earth.”

– Robert R. Cargill, Ph.D. (Biblical Archaeologists, UCLA)

“Before the Bible became the Bible of today there were many additional books that used to be a part of the Bible. They were removed in what was called the Council of Nicaea because those books contained too much information, dangerous knowledge.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“In Genesis 6, where it talks about these watchers that are kind of Angels that came down from Heaven and had sex with the women of the Earth.”

– Robert R. Cargill, Ph.D. (Biblical Archaeologists, UCLA)

“These strangers had sex with beautiful young girls on our planet. How can Angels have sex? This is impossible. In our point, in our view, Angels were something spiritual, not something who has a body, and has a feeling of sex. But they had sex. Our prehistoric ancestors could not understand, and they believe that these extraterrestrials are some kind of gods.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

“The conception of the Christ. An Angel comes to the holy mother, to the Virgin Mary, and tells her that she’s going to be blessed by God with a child. And then, essentially, she finds herself pregnant.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

“There is an Angelic reality point in the New Testament. And whether it be at the birth of Jesus, or his resurrection, we’ve got the possibility of other powers from another world being involved from the beginning to the end.”

– Rev. Barry H. Downing
(Author, The Bible and Flying Saucers)

“The more literal version is the idea that Jesus is strictly alien, which, of course, in a sense, he is as…even if you take him as the son of God, then obviously, he is not of this Earth.”

Thomas E. Bullard, Ph.D. (Folklorist)

“I tend to believe that Jesus was a very spiritual human being who understood a lot of things that we’re beginning to learn today. But it’s also very possible that he might have been an extraterrestrial who came down to teach us things. That divine intelligence is very real in some form or fashion.”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

Tales of gods mating with humans are prevalent in everything from Greek and Roman mythology to Native American legends. In China, at the end of the 5th-century BC, the country was divided into seven states, each ruled by powerful warlords who battled for territory and power. It was during this turbulent era when the legendary story of Huang Di first appeared.

“A great god took the form of a dragon, came down to a hilltop where a young maiden was out gathering fruit. And as this great dragon came near, the sky darkened. It was like a storm. She was terrified, and she passed out. When she came awake again, the sun had come out again, and the dragon was gone, and she was pregnant.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

Much like the story of the Virgin Mary and Jesus, the story of Huang Di told of an Earthling woman who would give birth to him – the legendary first emperor of China who ushered in a time of great change.

“Gods deliberately bred with humans so that they could produce, they could get a race that they could trust and control a little better.”

Arthur D. Horn, Ph.D. (Author, Humanity’s Extraterrestrial Origins)

“In my mind, legends and myths are based on something real – while they have been mythified and distorted and exaggerated, in many cases – but there is, in my mind, some core of truth here.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Another prevalent theme in ancient texts, myths, and religions is that of a cataclysm of some kind. Usually, these come in the form of an intense flood, fire, or other devastating catastrophe. In the Hebrew Bible, for example, God punishes mankind for their decadence and sinful ways. He sends punishment in the form of a great flood…which destroys nearly all living things on the planet, except for Noah, his family, and the animals rescued aboard his ark. Similar stories can be found in numerous ancient texts.

“Many of the mythical tales of most civilizations include some kind of idea that there are gods that came to Earth at some point. One interpretation has been that these are literal descriptions of visitors from space. Not gods, but some creatures with advanced technology that came to Earth in times past, and either created mankind, brought culture to the Earth, brought civilization, and then, for some reason, departed, usually under some kind of breach between mankind and the gods.”

Thomas E. Bullard, Ph.D. (Folklorist)

Take the case of the once-thriving Mesoamerican cultures of the Aztecs and the Mayans. By the year 1500 AD, they had all but vanished. But why? Was there a natural disaster of some kind? Or is there another, more otherworldly explanation?

“At some point, it all crashed in a cataclysmic disaster. And the world, as they knew it, came to an end. And tidal waves washed across continents. Areas of the planet went under water. And the megalithic building that was going on then, too, also completely stopped. And that’s what we see at certain areas. Like in Peru, where ancient blocks of granite have been quarried and partially moved to where they were going. But then, it all came to a sudden, complete halt.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

For nearly 3,000 years, the Mayan civilization thrived in Central America. Among their many accomplishments, the ancient Maya invented a remarkably complex and accurate calendar. According to scholars, the calendar started on August 11, 3114 BC. The first calendar cycle ends about 5,000 years later on December 21, 2012. But why? Did the Mayans know something about mankind’s future – something we have forgotten or chosen to ignore?

“There’s a lot of excitement being generated now about the Mayan calendar ending in year 2012, and if there is such a cataclysm or some massive Earth change that’s suddenly going to occur. And so the idea that ancient people, like the Mayans say, were somehow totally in tune with this and had knowledge of these kind of vast cosmic cycles, which apparently led to cataclysmic changes on the Earth, that’s the kind of advanced knowledge that we wouldn’t expect them to have. And where would they get that kind of knowledge? You would think that would have to come from extraterrestrials.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

If we accept the notion that alien beings left behind the Mayan calendar as some type of ancient advanced warning device, might they have left other astronomical instruments here on Earth? And if so, why was it so important for ancient civilizations to track the stars?
