Is Kongpo Creation Myth A Recollection Of Genetic Tinkering?
By James Donahue
Watching a late-night television documentary
about a quest by French researcher Frederique Darragon in southwestern China and Tibet, a brief mention of local mythology
caught our attention.
Darragon visited and photographed an estimated
200 strange multisided towers throughout the region for the Discovery Channel special. She also took samples of wooden floor
beams and carbon dated them. Some of the towers were as much as 1,200 years old.
While their origins were not included in local
mythology of the region, the natives had a strange name for the towers . . . bdud khang, or “demon houses.” All
were open structures, most had window type openings at different levels, and were several floors or stories tall. No one knew
why they were built or who make them.
The documentary stated that the Kongpo people
consider themselves Tibetan. “They all believe in the creation myth of the children of the she-demon and the monkey,”
a report on a Discovery Channel website said.
“The contemporary Jiarong and Minyag people
as well as the Tamang of Nepal, who are also Buddhist, and the Qiang Zu, who are not Buddhist, also believe in the same creation
Why is this significant?
It means that local mythology carries a story
that precedes Buddha. Also significant is that the myth appears to be the backbone of whatever religious belief system exists
for the Qiang Zu people. The story has continued to exist in spite of the fact that the territory is under the rule of Communist
China, where religious belief systems have not only been discouraged, but illegal for about half a century.
Because the people of the area are illiterate
and isolated from the outside world, tracking the origins of the myth and the builders of the towers was blocked from Darragon,
even though she traveled to the area on several occasions and spent a lot of time with the native people.
The stories were almost non-existent.
But there was that one thread . . . the creation story involving the children
of the she-demon and the monkey. Where did that originate?
Anyone who has studied the ancient stories in
the Book of Enoch, Epic of Gilgamesh and the Book of Genesis, knows something quite profound appears to have occurred on Earth
an estimated 40,000 years ago.
Some believe the “gods,” or entities
described in the stories were myths, or human memories of an alien race that visited Earth and altered the genetic makeup
of the primate, putting its own DNA in the beast and turning the ape into a human. The first woman, Lilith, was a hairy ape.
Eve, Adam’s second wife, was hairless.
The old stories talk about gods coming down and
fornicating with the women, and creating children who became giants on the Earth. Were the gods not aliens who came in ships
out of the skies? Yet if the various animal species on earth cannot inter-breed, how could beings from other worlds accomplish
it? The implantation of new genetic information in the cells of unborn children would be the only way. If it happened among
the primates, this event could have been interpreted as “fathering” of altered children.
That the children were clearly different is reflected
in the description of them as “giants.” That does not necessarily mean that they were larger in stature, although
it might have reflected a more upright stance. What was more apparent was that the children were smarter and hairless. They
grew up to be a superior race of humans living in a world of apes. Indeed, they were giants among the natives.
It is odd that the natives of Tibet would remember
the women who bore these children as “she-demons.” Indeed, the spiritual beings that walk the Earth on an astral
plane are marked in religious circles as demons. According to angelic teaching, the demons are reflected as evil, while the
angels are considered good.
That these women were presumed to have submitted
to the sexual desires of the gods marked them as she-demons. That they were apes when this occurred is reflected in the monkey
part of the myth.
To know and understand the truth is to realize
that we have been fooled for a very long time
