Dear Shari and Toby,
REFERENCES (in chronological order)
BIBLE (as we know it)
REFERENCES (IN THREE RELIABILITY CATAGORIES)
There are many thousands of good references on the origin of man and his religious thoughts. The reference books I have provided are the best I have found and provide a well rounded view of the subject. Looking at these in detail will provide some conflicts which I discovered and attempted to explain. I am more interested in the basic concepts which agree in these references and form a clear record, than in miniscule details. For example, the stories presented in these references present a consistent explanation of mankind’s development. Each reference may not present the whole story but only an overlapping portion. The names of people may be different from reference to reference but their identities are clear and the same. It may take a while to comprehend what is in the references. I would suggest reading my letters and selected portions of the references first then reading all of each reference. At that point you will find rereading these letters significantly more meaningful and useful..
Relationship of References and Time
A very detailed record of the origin of man and his development until approximately 2000 BC is provided in a collection of clay tablets written in the Sumerian language.
Zachariah Sitchin has translated these tablets providing a story remarkably similar to Genesis. His translations are similar to mine above from the Bible. They are a physical account of spiritual writings. Similar to earlier authors such as Immanuel Velikovsky and Erich von Däniken, Sitchin advocated hypotheses in which extraterrestrial events supposedly played a significant role in ancient human history.
According to Sitchin's interpretation of Mesopotamian iconography and symbolism, outlined in his 1976 book The 12th Planet and its sequels, there is an undiscovered planet beyond Neptune that follows a long, elliptical orbit, reaching the inner solar system roughly every 3,600 years. This planet is called Nibiru (although Jupiter was the planet associated with the god Marduk in Babylonian cosmology). According to Sitchin, Nibiru (whose name was replaced with MARDUK in original legends by the Babylonian ruler of the same name in an attempt to co-opt the creation for himself, leading to some confusion among readers) collided catastrophically with Tiamat (a goddess in the Babylonian creation myth the Enûma Eliš), which he considers to be another planet once located between Mars and Jupiter. This collision supposedly formed the planet Earth, the asteroid belt, and the comets. Sitchin states that when struck by one of planet Nibiru's moons, Tiamat split in two, and then on a second pass Nibiru itself struck the broken fragments and one half of Tiamat became the asteroid belt. The second half, struck again by one of Nibiru's moons, was pushed into a new orbit and became today's planet Earth.
According to Sitchin, Nibiru (called "the twelfth planet" because, Sitchin claimed, the Sumerians' gods-given conception of the Solar System counted all eight planets, plus Pluto, the Sun and the Moon) was the home of a technologically advanced human-like extraterrestrial race called the Anunnaki in Sumerian myth, who Sitchin states are called the Nephilim in Genesis. He wrote that they evolved after Nibiru entered the solar system and first arrived on Earth probably 450,000 years ago, looking for minerals, especially gold, which they found and mined in Africa. Sitchin states that these "gods" were the rank-and-file workers of the colonial expedition to Earth from planet Nibiru.
Sitchin wrote that Enki suggested that to relieve the Anunnaki, who had mutinied over their dissatisfaction with their working conditions, that primitive workers (Homo sapiens) be created by genetic engineering as slaves to replace them in the gold mines by crossing extraterrestrial genes with those of Homo erectus. According to Sitchin, ancient inscriptions report that the human civilization in Sumer, Mesopotamia, was set up under the guidance of these "gods", and human kingship was inaugurated to provide intermediaries between mankind and the Anunnaki (creating the "divine right of kings" doctrine). Sitchin believes that fallout from nuclear weapons, used during a war between factions of the extraterrestrials, is the "evil wind" described in the Lament for Ur that destroyed Ur around 2000 BC. Sitchin states the exact year is 2024 BC. Sitchin says that his research coincides with many biblical texts, and that biblical texts come originally from Sumerian writings.
Sitchin was born in Baku, Azerbaijan, and was raised in Palestine. He acquired some knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history and archeology of the Near East. Sitchin graduated from the London School of Economics, University of London, majoring in economic history. A journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he now lives and writes in New York City. His books have been widely translated, converted to braille for the blind, and featured on radio and television.
According to Sitchin's interpretation of Sumerian cosmology, there is an undiscovered planet which follows a long, elliptical orbit, reaching the inner solar system roughly every 3,600 years. This planet is called Nibiru (the planet associated with Marduk in Babylonian cosmology). According to Sitchin, Nibiru collided catastrophically with Tiamat, another supposed planet located by Sitchin between Mars and Jupiter. This collision supposedly formed the planet Earth, the asteroid belt, and the comets. Tiamat, as outlined in the Enûma Elish, is a goddess. According to Sitchin, however, Tiamat was what is now known as Earth. When struck by one of planet Nibiru's moons, Tiamat split in two. On a second pass Nibiru itself struck the broken fragments and one half of Tiamat became the asteroid belt. The second half, struck again by one of Nibiru's moons, was pushed into a new orbit and became today's planet Earth.
According to Sitchin, Nibiru was the home of a technologically advanced human-like extraterrestrial race called the Anunnaki in Sumerian myth, who Sitchin states are called the Nephilim in Genesis. He claims they first arrived on Earth probably 450,000 years ago, looking for minerals, especially gold, which they found and mined in Africa. These "gods" were the rank and file workers of the colonial expedition to Earth from planet Nibiru. Sitchin believes the Anunnaki genetically engineered Homo sapiens as slave creatures to work their gold mines by crossing extraterrestrial genes with those of Homo erectus. Sitchin claims ancient inscriptions report that human civilization in Sumer of Mesopotamia was set up under the guidance of these "gods", and human kingship was inaugurated to provide intermediaries between mankind and the Anunnaki. Sitchin believes that fallout from nuclear weapons, used during a war between factions of the extraterrestrials, is the "evil wind" that destroyed Ur around 2000 BC. Sitchin claims the exact year is 2024 BC. This event is described in the Lament for Ur. Sitchin claims that his research coincides with many biblical texts, and that biblical texts come originally from Sumerian writings.
Homo sapiens: The
successful deciphering of a female Neanderthal genome was reported in the
journal Science on February 13, 2009. The project, undertaken by
scientists at the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig, Germany, aimed to verify
when that failed species of humans and Homo sapiens (= Modern Man) branched
off, and whether the two had ever interbred. The New York Times pointed
out that the new findings "document two important sets of genetic changes
- those that occurred between 5.7 million years ago, when the human line split
from the line leading to chimpanzees, and 300,000 years ago when
Neanderthals and the ancestors of modern humans parted ways."
In The 12th Planet (1976), describing the Anunnaki's genetic engineering to fashion The Adam, Zecharia wrote: "Man is the product of evolution; but modern Man, Homo sapiens, is the product of the 'gods'. For, some time circa 300,000 years ago, the Nefilim took ape-man (Homo erectus) and implanted on him their own image and likeness." In The Earth Chronicles Time Chart (The Wars of Gods and Men, 1985) Zecharia wrote: 300,000 years ago: The Anunnaki toiling in the gold mines mutiny. Enki and Ninhursag create Primitive Workers through genetic manipulation... Homo sapiens begins to multiply."
ADDITIONAL KOLBRIN BOOKS
The Mahabharata is an epic narrative of the Kurukshetra War and the fates of the Kaurava and the Pandava princes. The action takes place in India between 1000 and 800 BC. It also contains philosophical and devotional material, such as a discussion of the four "goals of life" or purusharthas. Among the principal works and stories in the Mahabharata are the Bhagavad Gita, the story of Damayanti, an abbreviated version of the Ramayana, and the Rishyasringa, often considered as works in their own right.
Traditionally, the authorship of the Mahabharata is attributed to Vyasa. There have been many attempts to unravel its historical growth and compositional layers. The oldest preserved parts of the text are thought to be not much older than around 400 BCE, though the origins of the epic probably fall between the 8th and 9th centuries BCE. The text probably reached its final form by the early Gupta period (c. 4th century CE). The title may be translated as "the great tale of the Bhārata dynasty". According to the Mahabharata itself, the tale is extended from a shorter version of 24,000 verses called simply Bhārata. The people of India regard it as history rather than legend. It records areal wars, flying machines, crashes, horrific explosions and weapons.
In December 1945 an Arab peasant made an astonishing archeological discovery in Upper Egypt.
Rumors obscured the circumstances of this find--perhaps because the discovery was accidental,
and its sale on the black market illegal. For years even the identity of the discoverer remained
unknown. The Library, assembled by the Essenes, living in the area contains scriptures written by Jesus’ contemporaries, some apostles and others. Many contain the messages provided by Jesus.
These diverse texts range, then, from secret gospels, poems, and quasi-philosophic descriptions of
the origin of the universe, to myths, magic, and instructions for mystical practice.
Why were these texts buried-and why have they remained virtually unknown for nearly 2,000
years? Their suppression as banned documents, and their burial on the cliff at Nag Hammadi, it
turns out, were both part of a struggle critical for the formation of early Christianity. The Nag
Hammadi texts, and others like them, which circulated at the beginning of the Christian era, were
denounced as heresy by orthodox Christians in the middle of the second century. We have long
known that many early followers of Christ were condemned by other Christians as heretics, but
nearly all we knew about them came from what their opponents wrote attacking them. Bishop
Irenaeus, who supervised the church in Lyons, c. 180, wrote five volumes, entitled The
Destruction and Overthrow of Falsely So-called Knowledge, which begin with his promise to set
forth the views of those who are now teaching heresy . . . to show how absurd and inconsistent
with the truth are their statements . . . I do this so that . . . you may urge all those with whom you are connected to avoid such an abyss of madness and of blasphemy against Christ.
The Church had much to fear from these writings due to the reliance placed on individual development instead of law and ritual provided by the church bureaucracy.
These books, along with the Apocrypha should be considered an extension of the Bible.
These are books in the Catholic Bible removed by The Protestant Church for similar reasons the Gnostic Gospels were omitted by the Catholic Church.
The most complete and applicable reference currently available covering man’s beginning, current activities and end is the collection of books and letters known as The Holy Bible. The Bible has been supplied by the God of Abraham as instructions for daily survival and future survival. He specifically dictated clear instructions to Moses ranging from food to eat, food preparation, and health care to mental health, social care and religious practices, for daily living. He later personally, or through a messenger, expounded on the political alliances and struggles which would occur as verification of His advanced knowledge and as a guide to understand His logic and reasoning behind the 7,000 year plan. The Old Testament consists of five books (Pentateuch or Torah) written by Moses (and others) to describe where man came from, the origin of the Jewish and Arab people and nations and the health and religious practices required. The information on the origin of man and health and religious practices was provided by a physical being (not from Earth) on Mount Sinai over a 40 day period. The remainder of books consist of the history of the Jewish nation, some cultural records of songs and wisdom, and messages from the same entity who spoke to Moses. These messages are:
- Provided either in person or by one of his messengers.
- Clear and verifiable predictions of events later to take place on Earth.
- Not in chronological order.
Due to the styles and content it is believed that four people or groups wrote the Pentateuch. Considering the similarities between the Sumerian tablets and Genesis, either Moses was told the same story on Mount Sinai or the tablets were accepted.
The New Testament book Revelations provides the same messages in chronological order. The first four books of the New Testament (Gospels) were written by the apostles of Christ for the purposes of recording His life and teachings and establishing His church. The remainder of books are mostly letters to the followers of Christ providing guidance in the application of his teachings. One notable exception is the book of Revelations written by John (apostle or bishop?) while in exile on the island of Patmos. This book provides a chronological discourse on the old testament predictions of events later to take place on Earth. It is also clearer and in more detail. This book was sealed until man’s knowledge had increased to the point of understanding what it said.
Most of the old and new testaments were written in Hebrew and translated into Greek. Some of the New Testament was written in Greek. Many years later, some of the followers (leaders) of the church noticed that much had been written about Jesus and “The Church” was splintering into many directions. In an effort to “lead” the believers in Christ in the “correct” path, the existing scriptures were gathered and compiled and translated into the authoritative work known as “The Bible”. Even the split into “old” and “new” testaments is an effort to direct the thinking along a path to discard the Jewish traditions and Old Testament teachings and replace them with what the “Church “ is teaching today. The scriptures presenting views the “Church” did not support were left out. This is similar to the way the Protestants left out the Apocrypha from The Bible. What is useable and what is not valid from old scriptures (including the Gnostic Gospels, book of Judas and many others) is for you to decide.
Some important observations of The Bible are:
1. Most of the first five books of the Old Testament were provided by an entity not from Earth.
2. Most of the prophecies of the Old Testament were provided by a similar source.
3. Most of the Old Testament is history and cultural tradition.
4. Most of what Christ said and did He referenced from the Old Testament.
5. Christ lived by the Old Testament.
6. The New Testament was written from people’s memories or as guidance from their personal opinion.
7. The book of Revelations is the only New Testament book provided from an outside source (not from Earth).
8. Prophecies in the Bible generally deal with political and national issues as viewed from the Mediterranean /Middle East geography. The Bible covers approximately 7,000 years of Earth’s/man’s development and politics. The purpose of man’s development, AS REVEALED IN Jesus’ time, is to gather the souls which are loyal to and choose to place the well-being of others equal or greater than their own well-being. This concept guides their decisions instead of the concept of “how can I get the most for me”. The basic concepts have been labeled as good and evil or right and wrong or God and Satan. The physical being we call God is “The Creator” of the Universe. Lesser beings were designated Elohim or just Lord in the original scriptures and translated only recently as “God”. The Elohim (Anunnaki, Anshar?) created Adam, helped Noah survive, guided Abraham, gave Jesus to Mary, will defeat the armies of the one world federation in 2072, and will replace the world leader of that Federation with Christ. The physical being we call Satan/Lucifer and his followers are still trying to gain control over Earth’s governments and will nearly succeed in 2072.
9. Per Hosea, God went home “until Israel wails for him” and returns after the passing of the destroyer and chaos of the aftermath.
10 He has left the opposing forces here on Earth to destroy major cities and the only country which could oppose him.
11. One noteworthy verse in the Bible provides great insight to how the world has evolved. In Revelations, the God of Abraham is talking to John about future events and specifically events of the seventieth week.
And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to Christ is referred to in other places this way
him will I give power over the nations:
2:27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter ROD OF IRON?
shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
And I will give him the morning star.
Who was the father of the God of Abraham?
The Gnostic Gospels describe a plethora of supreme beings developed from God (the Unbegotten) to the director(s) of mankind.
THE SUMERIAN TABLETS:
The Sumerian Tablets, written from 4000BC to 2000BC, provide many of the same stories as Genesis, written about 1400 BC. The Sumerian tablets provide much more detail. WAS GENESIS A SUMMARY OF KNOWLEDGE FROM THE SUMERIAN TABLETS?
Enlil was the Anannuki ruler who interfaced with Terah, Abraham’s father.
Mar.Duk died prior to 331 BC , En.Ki left by 550 BC
Arabic Bible provided to Mohammad has been supplied by the God of Abraham as instructions for daily survival and future survival.
The Koran is very basic and straightforward. Very little detail is given as to how to accomplish its goals. The Islamic religion is supported by the Hadith. Eighty five percent of the Muslim population is Sunni and follow the six most proven Hadith.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Kutub al-Sittah (Arabic: الكتب الستة, translit. Al-Kutub as-Sittah, lit. 'The six books') are six (originally five) books containing collections of hadith (sayings or acts of the Islamic prophet Muhammad) compiled by six Sunni Muslim scholars in the ninth century CE. They are sometimes referred to as Al-Sihah al-Sittah, which translates as "The Authentic Six". They were first formally grouped and defined by Ibn al-Qaisarani in the 11th century, who added Sunan ibn Majah to the list. Since then, they have enjoyed near-universal acceptance as part of the official canon of Sunni Islam.
Not all Sunni Muslim jurisprudence scholars agree on the addition of Ibn Majah. In particular, the Malikis and Ibn al-Athir consider al-Mawatta' to be the sixth book. The reason for the addition of Ibn Majah's Sunan is that it contains many Hadiths which do not figure in the other five, whereas all the Hadiths in the Muwatta' figure in the other Sahih books.
The first two, commonly referred to as the Two Sahihs as an indication of their authenticity, contain approximately seven thousand hadiths altogether if repetitions are not counted, according to Ibn Hajar.
From the Hadith, the Mahdi concept of a conqueror who prepares the way for Christ, is supported.
Sunni Imam are the equivalent of a preacher or pastor
Shi’a Imam are the equivalent to the Pope
This book is the closest explanation of what I think the Bible is saying. Many of Tim’s concepts are the same conclusions I had reached separately. I use his research as a guide in mine.
David Wilcock is an author, seer, lecturer and channeler of information from extraterrestrial sources. From the scientific experiments in the 19th & 20th centuries he has documented a complete physics philosophy for the universe which is quite different from the mainstream explanation. In addition, he has connected this scientific philosophy to our religion and daily life. The subjects he provides include physics, clairvoyance, telepathy, anti-gravity, tortional energy, harmonics, synchronicity and many others. These are explained in detail and provided with proof. You are not expected to “take his word for it” but to read his comments and examine the references and proof. This will take time and effort but it is worth it to discover the whole truth.
