Are We The Children of Star Gods?
In 1917, Albert Einstein attempted to reconcile his findings that the universe is expanding with the static notions of the day. Consequently, a scientific debate has raged for decades: Is the universe expanding, contracting or is it constant? We finally got the answer and the data is irrefutable -- the universe is expanding! This is a joyless discovery for scientists because they know the day will come when Earth will be very much alone in a cold, vacuous and empty cosmos. Additionally, there is another aspect to this discovery that is also profoundly upsetting for theologians as well. If we are to believe that God created an expanding universe, why haven't we expanded our own faith and understanding of God as well? And, are we deluding ourselves by inventing new reinterpretations of emotionally fixed, theological constants?
This question is precisely why theologians and scientists view the scholarly work of Zecharia Sitchin with deep emotional trepidation. If Nibiru (Planet X) truly exists, it will force a global religious reformation that will expand our view of God and this possibility terrifies our sense of faith in a God we cannot see or touch.
It is a widely accepted fact amongst scholars that Sumerians were the first civilization on Earth. These ancient Middle Eastern people attributed their astounding knowledge, skill and creativity to the ancient gods of Nibiru (also known as Planet X.) If this planet is discovered, only the desperately myopic will be able to blindly deny that it was the home planet of their gods, and therefore the origin of their religious beliefs. If so, the gods of Planet X may have formed the foundation of a belief that has been the wellspring of many religions that we are still following; we may be unknowingly upholding their ancient beliefs derived from star gods.
If we closely examine the teachings of our ancient religious scriptures with an unbiased eye, it is certain that we will see a higher spiritual presence that is our true God. Likewise, it is also possible that we will see evidence of ancient advanced human gods who came to Earth thousands of years ago from another world. If so, this explains why we tend to give God lowly human attributes such as vengeance. Ergo, the path to understanding begins with a simple and all too familiar question: Who or what is God?
Origins Of Religion
Who or what is God(s)? Every religion seeks to answer that question in its own way, yet those that dominate the religious views of most earthlings share common threads such as monotheism, the belief in only one God.
The Sacred Writings of the World's Great Religions
A careful study of any religion will reveal how it has changed as the life of the people has changed. It is natural, then, that each religion should take on the characteristics of the people around whose culture it developed. The surprising thing is that the world's living religions are so much alike in many respects. Considering the great diversity of cultural developments throughout the world, it is a wonder that the religions of mankind are at all alike.
The primary reason for this widespread similarity is that the world's religions can all be traced back to earlier sources. The earliest such source comes from the ancient Sumerian culture, which was the first civilization on Earth.
Why is it that most historians and academics only choose to classify history as fact up to a certain point? Is it because this mysterious demarcation point is defined by religion?
History books regale us with the remarkable achievements of these ancient civilizations, yet when they get around to explaining the source of their knowledge and religion, these remarkable civilizations are quickly pegged as primitive myth-based cultures.
Why is it that even men and women of science judge all faiths by those in practice today, and therefore discount and play down ancient religions as myths? This characteristic of today's culture seems especially hypocritical considering that our religions are all based on the foundations of such "mythical" beliefs.
What we must keep in mind is that although many of the fundamentals of our religions are strikingly similar, an important difference is the definition of God amongst these religions.
The Reluctant Messenger
God is a word that means different things to different people. To many Taoist or Buddhist the word is not part of their religion's glossary. To Hindus that word has a different meaning than it does to a Christian. Muslims have a different perspective and so do the Jews.
For the purpose of this article, let's assume that our religions can be divided into two basic categories of belief:
The differences between these two assumptions can be better understood when we take into account the religious beliefs of the ancient false gods of Nibiru themselves, which brings us to the scholarly work of Zecharia Sitchin.
Sitchin's "Earth Chronicles" research has reinterpreted the Bible and the fundamental meaning behind stories upon which it is based. Using translations of the ancient texts as his source, he has compiled the sophisticated knowledge of the Sumerians into a brand new history book for those with the intellectual courage to pursue a new path of discovery. For those so inclined, this path has led to a remarkable reacquisition of lost Sumerian knowledge.
Faith In Gods
What we've learned is that the Sumerian's did not take credit for the discoveries of their own knowledge. Instead, they humbly attributed the source of their knowledge to "Those who from heaven to Earth came" -- an advanced human race known by the Sumerians as Anunnaki. This in part explains our present day concept of faith in God despite an absence of physical proof.
Thousands of years ago when the Anunnaki ("Those who from heaven to Earth came") walked the Earth, the Sumerians witnessed the physical evidence of these flesh and blood gods and naturally worshiped them. Consequently, faith was not an explicit requirement in their religion because the evidence of their Gods stood before them. In present times, we can no longer see our God(s). Some faiths use a combination of faith reinforced by icons and others simply use faith alone. Either way, this is why today's religions insistently demand faith in the unseen as a prerequisite to reaching God.
Since the ancient Anunnaki gods left our planet long ago, all we have left of them is the proof in texts that we have discovered. These historical texts describe flesh and blood gods that did exist even though they are still regarded as myths by mainstream science and theology. This is why the emphasis in religion today is that of faith, and it is nothing short of blinding.
When faith alone drives our decisions without applying constructive questioning and searching for the truth ourselves, it can result in the aberrations we call "sin" and doubt. However, when the knowledge of truth produces faith, the aberrations are corrected. When truths are scattered in the wind as they are today, interesting things begin to happen.
Steve, leave this paragraph about truth as it is for now, but be warned; fundamentalists of all faiths will each interpret the word, "truth," in their own way. You may be starting a very interesting chain reaction!
Begin The Search
Throughout the natural progression of history, the knowledge and beliefs of the Sumerians have degenerated like a whisper into the prevalent religious texts of our day, such as the Bible.
In most cases the fundamental story is the same, but the characters have changed and the context is different. This is the cause of the inconsistencies and arguments between and within religious institutions of today and the need to reassure our faith that the words are still correct. Perhaps this is why some statements of eternal wisdom from the Bible instruct us to test all things. But why should the Bible be an exception to this rule?
Put all things to the test: keep what is good and avoid every kind of evil.
My dear friends, do not believe all who claim to have the Spirit, but test them to find out if the spirit they have comes from God. For many false prophets have gone out everywhere.
Given that modern texts such as the Bible were compiled and edited by human hands, in several languages, and from several differing sources, it raises the possibility that information from "false prophets" could have also been included as well. Therefore, our modern texts should not be excluded from critical investigation, as they too can be myth-based as well. However, the discomfort in doing so brings us directly into conflict with our faith in the unseen where each unbiased search of unvarnished truth is accompanied by a jab of fear that tests our faith.
On one hand, we see the logic of pursuing the unvarnished truth. On the other, when the painful jabs of fear that test our faith unsettle us and like Pavlov's Dogs, we begin responding to the pain and not the logic. This is why faith, as opposed to logic, has been used so liberally throughout the Bible. The fate of the biblical Enoch is one example of how faith can be capricious and judgmental in its application.
It was faith that kept Enoch from dying. Instead, he was taken up to God, and nobody could find him, because God had taken him up.
Despite the fact that hundreds of other people had deep devotion and faith in God at the time, only Enoch was granted immortality. It seems that nobody else's faith was strong enough.
It is such demanding and unrealistic levels of faith that have paved the way for full acceptance of the biblical scriptures as holy. Since faith was not a requirement in the Sumerian religion, perhaps we should try to brush away our faith for a brief moment, and take a closer look at some fundamentals of our religions. If we do, elements of the Sumerian religion begin to appear in earnest. One of these elements is the Sabbath day.
