The Setting

Our Bible Is An Old Book

This blog is called Spaceship Theology; a study of theology must start with the nature and attributes of God, since the word, theology, in Greek means, treating of God.

Christians commonly accept that only the Bible of the Christians is the inspired Word of God and that Jehovah especially chose the Jews to write His message.  Therefore, the supposition is that all other writings are man-made or even inspired by Satan. 

Among those credited to Satan are The Hindu writings, The Koran, The Greek Myths, The Book of Mormon and the New World Translation of the Bible.  This list, could, of course, be made much longer.  According to some, it should include almost everything ever written except the King James Version of the Bible.

My purpose here is not to defend or to condemn ancient writings.  My intention is to look at some ancient literary works, which were written long, long before Western minds were even aware of the idea of ufos.  

Reference will be made throughout these posts to some of those writings, including the Bible, and an attempt will be made to show how they might have been speaking of spaceships, aliens and other theories presented in these posts.

Some argue that the age of the Bible verifies its inspiration.  They say that parts of the Bible are about 3,500 years old; therefore it is inspired by God.  If we are using that kind of rationale, it is good to remember that the Vedas of the Hindu religion are about as old as the books of Moses.  Hence, that argument would mean that the Vedas of the Hindus are also inspired by God.

The Epic of Gilgamesh, according to some scholars, is about 1200 years older than the Bible’s creation story.   Is it, consequently, more inspired than the Bible? 

The Atrahasis Epic is believed, by some, to have been composed in the period 1646-1626 B.C.E. They also believe that Moses wrote Genesis, but Moses did not come along until about 1500 B.C.  So, is The Atrahasis epic more inspired than the Bible is?  Simply put, we cannot use the age of the Bible as an argument for its divine origin.

Throughout history, if any teaching that comes along has not agreed with what the Bible scholars have taught, that teaching is, by default, attributed to Satan.  Such an approach is to take the easy, thoughtless way out of a doctrinal problem.  That is what the Pharisees did with the teachings of Jesus when He denounced them for not hearing the words of God. Then the Jews said to Him, “Now we know that You have a demon!" John 8:52.

It is obvious to anyone who has studied the Bible, even a little, that not everything in the Bible can be taken at face value.  For example, God is said to be spirit but the Bible also speaks of Him as having physical attributes.  Why not, for a fresh outlook, let us emphasize the physical attributes, and ascribe the true, biblical meaning to the spiritual aspect as shown in the phrase, God is spirit. John 4:24. 

The intelligent beings from another planet developed scientifically and became astronauts. Being curious, like humans are, (for we are created in their image), they needed a habitable planet to use as a laboratory.  At certain intervals, the gods must leave the earth (if, for no other reason than to keep from ageing at earth’s tremendous pace).  If this idea sounds too preposterous to accept, notice that Psalm 47:5 says, God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.


Perhaps the ET's who, after "upgrading" the subhuman apes into humans went back to their home planet.

Some say the tenth, some say the twelfth, in our solar system, which many astronomers now agree, that over the course of three thousand six hundred earth years orbits much closer to earth than it does the rest of the time.  

That planet, known as Nibiru, is believed to pass between Mars and Saturn on its very elliptical course around the sun.  Some also believe that there used to be a planet where the rings of Saturn now are and that on one of its passes Nibiru crashed into that planet and fragmented it.  That planet’s name was Tiamat.  A large section of Tiamat was flung into a circular orbit around the sun and it became the planet we lovingly call Earth.

The breakthrough on understanding the extinct Akkadian language which is the mother of the Semitic tongue revealed more basis pertaining to the making of the first humans. The account of the creation of mankind began when the Anunnaki/Elohim (Those who from Heavens to Earth came) “splashed down” at the Persian Gulf. The Sumerians believed that these “gods” came all the way from the outer edge of our solar system. It is a well-documented fact that the Sumerians believed that their “gods” practised a two-way travel from their heavenly abode to Earth. The olden writings also indicated the familiarity of this people on the celestial system such us our sun and the planets in our solar system. The Sumerians always depicted in their pictograph writings an extra planet called Nibiru- the abode of the Annunaki race. This massive planet often referred to as the “Winged Planet” or “Woodworm” possesses an elliptical orbit that crosses our very own home every 3,600 years (Sar). Its expected comeback is in less than 120 years.

In the preceding paragraph one of the names of the planet is given as, woodworm, that should probably have been written as, wormwood, as it is in other articles about this subject.

After having been gone for thousands of earth years they come back to earth; they investigate to ascertain how the experiments have progressed.  They find a humanoid animal without the ability to reason, so the astronauts ‘revamp’ the animal.  The Bible says, God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being. Gen. 2:7.  This statement is not made about any other animal, although they also breathe.  It distinctly sounds as if, by direct involvement by the ET's, at that point man became a being with an eternal spirit.

Notice, also that man existed before he became a living soul.  First, he was an animal, then a living being (a being with a soul).  After man became a living soul, he looked, and for the first time with understanding, sees that there is an astronaut near him.

Of course, he does not understand what is happening, but to his infant reasoning, this saucerian appears to be all-knowing and all-powerful.  The human begins to understand that he owes his very existence to the supernatural beings and so he worships them as gods.

The early humans were absolutely overwhelmed by the saucerians and their capabilities. The people were superstitious, and superstition leads to religion.  It seems only natural that in their superstitious fervour they would worship these beings as the gods who, according to their immature thinking level, also had made the world and the universe.
