Please do read Mauro Biglino and get a taste of ancient texts that are probably familiar to most people in these forums. He is an expert linguist who specialises in ancient hebraic texts. He was famously commissioned by the Vatican to produce a most literal translation of the oldest biblical texts, juxtaposing the ancient words with the best possible literal translations. Needless to say he found that all the descriptions of technology had been replaced with strange abstract concepts in religious translations.
"The book that will forever change our ideas about the Bible
The gods coming from space"
He recently stated in an interview that he could find no non-material descriptions of astonishing events in the bible where tainted religious translations offer us god-magic instead. But please read him for yourself.
He is greatly impressed with Sitchin's work on ancient Sumerian texts and leans on him for the back story of the Old Testament biblical stories whose origins lie in ancient Sumeria. Those stories of: Creation, Flood, Tower of Babel (where we adopted ET technology and lost our telepathy as punishment?) traveled with the ancient Hebrews after their time in Babylon.
I have learned to be cautious with Sitchin, who having become convinced he had grasped a great revelation about human origins gave up on any objectivity in his work, it seems to me. We must all look out for this, having formed a great idea we must not then try to force everything into our explanation. Even the story of one person's lifetime would take many lifetimes to record and explain and there would be very many ways of understanding that story. What we call 'History' is a joke as the lives of millions are encapsulated in a brush stroke. We want life and spirit to go, wrapped up like a burger with fries. Nutritionally poor.
Here is a quote from Biglino's book - a quick summary after a technical linguistic analysis of the creation story:
"A brief “criticism”...
All these events find an explanation in this particular interpretation of the
‘Sumerian myth and biblical Genesis. Like it or not, convenient or inconvenient
as it may be, the Sumerians and the Old Testament seem to be closely
aligned. The Bible tells the same story recast in the light of a familiar
monotheistic vision that would have developed only in later centuries. Of the
original story they maintained the plurality of the Elohim and the concrete
matter used by these “gods” to create man “with” their image and
The spiritual God, transcendent and unique, then, did not belong to the
experience of the biblical authors who have told us a very concrete story,
using the cultural means they had at that time.
And no Church has the right to distort the history in order to build a
consciousness controlling system based on perspectives that are distant from
those texts defined as sacred that, instead, have been purposely reinterpreted
by the ruling power.
Not surprisingly, a personal reading of such texts has been discouraged for
centuries when not explicitly forbidden."
Needless to say the Vatican dropped Biglino like a burning sacrament.
