Was Adam An Alien Half-Breed?


By James Donahue


 Everybody knows the Bible story about the origin of the human race. The Hebrew god Jehova, or the many gods of Elohim, created a man named Adam and a woman named Eve and placed them in a garden called Eden. This is an ancient story shared by the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions. It appears in Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament.


Unless you are a fundamentalist and believe all of the words in every book of the Bible are God-inspired and therefore must be accepted as factual and historical truth, the story must be accepted as mythology designed to try to explain where we came from and how we got here. The Genesis story also establishes the deadly concept of “original sin” and marks all humans as doomed to damnation unless they turn to God for personal salvation.


There are extreme differences between the three faiths as to just how salvation must be accomplished. Worse than that, there are extreme disagreements among fractions of all three religious groups as to how believers must achieve perfection. Wars have been fought, and many a rebellious “infidel” has been murdered because they dared to question powerful religious leaders over theological declarations over this very issue.


 The Genesis story, at best, is a twisted version of what really happened. Due to personal contact with beings in parallel but multi-dimensional universes, or various planes of existence within our own universe, it is obvious to me that we three-dimensional beings are not alone. We never have been alone. We are surrounded by intelligent life that sometimes enters our dimension and may even influence our way of life.


There is a theory based on ancient text including the Epic of Gilgamesh and the Book of Enoch, and rekindled by contemporary writers like Zecharia Sitchin that suggests the human race was placed here by alien visitors. The theory is that some form of genetic engineering was used on Earth primates to create human consciousness.


This outside influence could explain the sudden appearance of tools, pottery, art and stone structures in the archaeological record and appearing within a short span of history. It might answer the riddle behind the construction of complex cities and stone monuments by a people that supposedly emerged from a cave-life existence.


 How would humans have the sudden ability to hunt, farm, build monuments, and worship a god unless they were (a.) suddenly created (i.e. genetic manipulation) and (b.) given personal instruction by another intelligent life form. Our apparent need to constantly worship something, whether it is a rock, the sun or an invisible deity in the sky, might stem from this kind of mental conditioning.


In Barbara Hand Clow’s book The Pleiadian Agenda, the author professes to be a human vehicle for various alien communicators. The beings speaking through Clow state that they are using this book in an attempt to push certain buttons and awaken readers into an understanding of who we really are.


 Clow's work speaks mostly on behalf of the Pleiadians, a race of aliens that say they are only interested in helping humans rise above our situation. The author claims that we also share this planet with two other alien races, the Reptilians and the Anunnaki.


It is the Anunnaki who appear to be the villains in this story. These people, who reportedly come to Earth from the planet Niberu every 3,600 years, appear to be the creators of some of us. But according to the Pleiadians, their motive was never divine. They made humans to work as their slaves. They created our complex religious belief systems to make sure we always remain trapped in their elaborate program of social control.


The Pleiadians claim that the planet Niberu is part of our solar system, but it has such a wide arch that it only comes into view every 3,600 years. At that time Niberu gets close enough to Earth to allow the Anunnaki to physically travel here. Their last visit was at the time of Jesus. Niberu was the star referred to in the Christmas story. The visit prior to that was made at the time the Sumarian Empire rose to power.


Just how the Anunnaki manage to exist on a world that swings so far out of the galaxy it cannot benefit from the heat of the sun, is not explained.


Do we dare accept Clow’s story? Strangely, she is not alone in her claims. The Epic of Gilgamesh, a creation story found in clay tablets among Sumerian ruins dating back to third millenium BC, makes reference to the Anunnaki:


"When the Anunnaki, the judges, come together, and Mammetun, the mother of destinies, together they decree the fates of men. Life and death they allot but the day of death they do not disclose," one text reads.


 The epic also speaks of Anu, "lord of the firmament," an image of God the creator of man. Indeed, the Sumarians believed that the Anunnaki were gods of a dark underworld where the dead go. Anu was a father of gods, "the great above."


The strange Book of Enoch, an ancient text discovered in Ethiopia in 1773 (and because of references to it in ancient Hebrew writings considered to be among the oldest manuscripts in existence) talks about 200 angels who came down to earth to mate with the women. Led by a high angel named Azazyel, the angels produced giant men who ate so much they soon consumed all of the food. After that they fed on the animals and even the flesh of humans.


 During this strange occupation, Enoch writes that humans were taught to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, mirrors, jewelry, paints and dyes, make cosmetics, and use valuable stones. The people also learned sorcery, use of roots and plants for medicine, astronomy, astrology and other "signs," and the importance of the "motion of the moon."


 Fr. Charles Moore, a Roman Catholic Priest, once spoke about the Anunnaki during an appearance on the Coast to Coast radio talk show. Moore, an obvious maverick among the Catholics, said he believed the Anunnaki held a control over the human race.


It was Moore's opinion that the Anunnaki come to Earth to mine gold. He said gold is an element that cannot be found on Niberu. The Anunnaki use a form of alchemy to refine gold into a liquid that they consume. When done correctly, Moore claims the metal makes the consumer young and healthy, gives them great mental powers, and assures eternal life in this body and in this dimension. The formula that works for the Anunnaki also would work for humans, he said.


 Moore believes the Anunnaki created us as slaves to mine gold for them. Indeed, gold is regarded by humans to be a most precious and admired metal. It is worn freely as decorative jewelry. Gold also has been used to make coins of value.


 Zecharia Sitchin is yet another contemporary believer in the Anunnaki. Sitchin, an expert in ancient Semitic and Hebrew languages, has stirred much controversy with his books, writings and lectures. His Earth Chronicles series offers the premise that mythology is the repository of ancient memory, the Bible is a historic and scientific document, and ancient civilizations were the product of knowledge given to the people by the Anunnaki.


In a lecture at New York University in 1993, Sitchin outlined his theory about human origins and our link with the Anunnaki. Following are excerpts from his talk:


"There is one more planet in our own solar system, not light years away, that comes between Mars and Jupiter every 3,600 years. People from that planet came to Earth almost half a million years ago and did many of the things about which we read in the Bible, in the book of Genesis.


"I prophesize the return of this planet called Nibiru at this time. The planet is inhabited by intelligent human beings like us who will come and go between their planet and our planet. They created Homo sapiens. We look like them. I call them the Annunaki," Sitchen said.


 He said he became interested in the Sixth Chapter of Genesis, that talks about the Nefilim, or giants, identified as "the sons of the gods who married the daughters of man in the days before the great flood." In his research, Sitchen said he learned that Nefilim literally means "those who have come down to earth from the heavens.


"All the ancient scriptures, the Bible, the Greek myths, the Egyptian myth and texts, the pyramid texts, everything, led to the Sumerians, whose civilization was the first known one six thousand years ago. I focused on Sumer, the source of these legends and myths and texts and information. I learned to read the cuneiform Sumerian texts and came upon their persistent and repeated statements that those beings, whom the Sumerians called Anunnaki, came to earth from a planet called Nibiru. The planet was designated by the sign of the cross and Nibiru meant, planet of crossing."


Sitchen said scholars who were following this same course of study were debating among themselves whether Nibiru was Mars or Jupiter. He said he began an extensive study of astrological charts and realized that Nibiru couldn't be either of these planets. He finally came to the conclusion that it was a wandering planet that crossed through our solar system.


"Once I realized that this was the answer, that there is one more planet, everything else fell into place. The meaning of the Mesopotamian Epic of Creation on which the first chapters of Genesis are based and all details about the Anunnaki, who they were and who their leaders were and how they traveled from their planet to Earth and how they splashed down in the Persian Gulf and about their first settlement, their leaders and so on and so on, everything became clear! The Sumerians had immense knowledge.


"They knew about Uranus and Neptune and described them and they knew about Pluto. They were proficient in mathematics and, in many respects, their knowledge surpassed modern times. They said 'All we know was told to us by the Anunnaki.'"


Sitchen said: "The existence of Nibiru is not a matter of just one more globe in our solar system. This is different, because if Nibiru exists, and the Anunnaki exist, then the Sumerian claim that they come back to our vicinity every 3,600 years, at which times in the past they gave us civilization, then we are not alone and there are more advanced people than us in our solar system."


In one of his books, The Twelfth Planet, Sitchen quotes a Sumerian text that he says explains how Adam, the first Homo sapien, was created. He said the process was the same as what today is called a "test tube baby process.


"The knowledge that we have acquired corroborates what the Sumerians knew six thousand years ago. You wonder how is it possible, how could they know? How, as another example, could their symbol of the entwined serpents, that we still use today to denote medicine and healing and biology, be 6,000 years ago, the symbol of Enki, who engaged in genetic engineering to bring about the Adam? That was a symbol of the DNA, the double helix of DNA," Sitchen said.


"We look like them. They made us through genetic engineering. They jumped the gun on evolution, and made us to look like them physically, and to be like them emotionally. That is what the Bible says: Let us make the Adam in our likeness and after our image. Physically, outwardly and inwardly. So much of what they are, we are."


Sitchen even goes one step farther. He theorizes that the Anunnaki not only created us through genetic engineering, they "mixed their genes with those of Ape-woman."
