Alien Contact-Fact or Fiction?
by Leonard Farra
Some alternative scholars believe that the pyramids were built by extra-terrestrials which is clearly not true. This claim is sometimes used to discredit the Ancient Astronaut theory as is the unlikely idea that the famous lines in the Nazca Desert, in Southern Peru, were landing sites for space-ships. More than a thousand pyramids were built, in various forms, in different parts of the world, from stone, brick, and clay, and they were mainly used for religious purposes or for burials. With regard to Egypt’s Great Pyramid, although it’s a truly amazing structure, (One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World), it was built some 4,500 years ago by a local workforce.
As I explain in my book, ‘The Pleiades Legacy, (The Old World)’, this huge pyramid might not have been a tomb, as most Egyptologists believe, since it appears to have played an important role in Egyptian religion. Having said that, there is convincing evidence to suggest that there was alien contact with this world and that it occurred more than 500 years before the Great Pyramid was built.
The statement of a witness, in a court of law, is acceptable as evidence and more credence is placed on this testimony when several people tell the same story. When it comes to Early World stories about extra-terrestrial visits to this planet, scholars regard them as myth even though thousands of initiated people, throughout the Ancient World, were taught that a being from the sky-world, sometimes with several companions, helped civilize their ancestors.
Aztec greenstone mask of Quetzalcoatl
Although the Ancients gave this entity a variety of names, such as Viracocha in Peru and Quetzalcoatl in Mexico, he was often described as having the appearance of a tall, white, bearded man who wore a long white robe. The Ancients worshiped him as a god and some people were so amazed, when they saw him, that they thought he was the Creator.
In his “History of Things of New Spain”, written in the sixteenth century, Bernardino de Sahagun wrote: “In the city of Tollan reigned many years a king called Quetzalcoatl…. He was exceptional in moral virtues … the place of this king among these natives is like King Arthur among the English.’ The temple pyramid dedicated to Quetzalcoatl in this advanced city had been built by the Toltecs, whose ninth emperor priest he was. Three centuries after the collapse of Toltec power the rulers of Aztecs were pleased to call themselves ‘successors of Quetzalcoatl’. He was regarded as the greatest historical king: he started the cultivation of maize; he introduced weaving, the polishing of stone, and the making of feather mantles; he taught men how to measure time and study the movements of the stars; he invented the calendar along with its fixed ceremonies and days of prayer; he expounded religious doctrines. The brutal Aztecs, who exaggerated the Toltec obsession with human sacrifice, used the Quetzalcoatl myth to prop up their military state. However, they also inherited the prophecy that, one day, this king would return from the sea and reclaim his throne. It was a fatalism that Hernando Cortés exploited in 1519–21 when he posed as the undead Quetzalcoatl.
The earliest known written records, i.e. those dating back 5,000 years to the Ancient Sumerians in Southern Iraq, call him Ea or Enki and, although he was depicted as a fish god, he was said to have been a great civiliser closely connected with the legendary group of E.T’s -the Annunaki.
Priests of the fish god Enki or Ea tend a radiant pillar
surmounted by a winged ring ridden by Ea.
In remote times, according to this myth, when men lived in a lawless manner like beasts, Ea appeared from the sea. Part man and part fish, the double-headed god instructed men in handicrafts, farming, letters, laws, architecture, and magic. He softened the primitive rudeness and since that time nothing has been added to improve on his teaching. After a day of instruction Ea retired into the sea, whence the divine fish man made only three other appearances over a period of thousands of years.
As I report in my book, the Sumerian scribes reveal how many craft were involved in the Annunaki visit and, from the legends, and traditions, of later Middle Eastern peoples, we learn that they were circular and that they were what we would today call ‘flying saucers’. The reason why their true nature has been obscured is because they were given a religious interpretation.
Sky-god traditions were passed on, over the years, from generation to generation, and one of the fascinating stories they tell is that the visiting ‘god’ had an amazing, magical, staff. Gods throughout the Early World were portrayed carrying staffs. They featured in numerous legends and were held by rulers, and chiefs, to show that they were divine. The ‘sky-god’s’ staff was reputed to have had several functions. One of these was the power to heal and, based upon the staff associated with Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine, it’s now a symbol of the medical profession. Staffs are still carried by royalty, such as the sceptre held on a coronation, just as they were by rulers several thousand years ago.
Horus with Scepter and Ankh
Although its’ origin was unknown, to the Egyptian general public, the sky-god religion was followed by them throughout their country’s long history together with the worship of many other national and local gods. It was also an influence on their Afterlife beliefs. Some of the Egyptian religious symbols were adopted by later cultures and they now appear on several Western structures such as the rayed headdress of New York’s Statue of Liberty which has been given a modern meaning. Sky-god traditions were an influence on the layout of several early cities, such as Babylon, and on the mythical layout of others for example Troy.
The star people were universally associated with the Pleiades whose helical rising often represented the beginning of an era such as the New Year. Various early religious structures were aligned to their rising and there were often celebrations when they appeared. These festivities included the lighting of flames which had previously been extinguished. The Pleiades were also widely associated with the start of the agricultural season and with rain and flooding. Some people also believed them to be the source of all life.
In tribal societies, young boys were initiated into their people’s ‘sky-god’ traditions from an early age and, as they progressed with their learning, more of the tribe’s secrets were taught to them. This custom continued, in some tribal societies, for thousands of years and even now, some initiates are awaiting the return of the sky people who visited their ancestors. Some of the inner traditions were never revealed to strangers but, from what is known about the subject, they appear to have been basically the same. Similarly, in sky-god related mystical cults, in the civilized world, initiates passed through a series of stages in their spiritual development There is reason to suppose that a version of the sky-god religion was followed by the Druids for Pleiades linked festivals played a major role in their (Celtic) calendar and the bearded Arch Druid wore a long white robe and carried a magical golden staff.
Mithraism, another Pleiades linked sky-god religion, was brought to England by Roman soldiers after it arrived in Rome from the East. If Christianity hadn’t been adopted by Rome, Mithraism would have been its State religion and many people in Europe might still be following versions of the Early World sky-god religion.
The iconic scenes of Mithras show him being born from a rock, slaughtering a bull, and sharing a banquet with the god Sol (the Sun). According to Franz Cumont, the imagery of the tauroctony was a Graeco-Roman representation of an event in Zoroastrian cosmogony described in a 9th century AD Zoroastrian text, the Bundahishn. In this text the evil spirit Ahriman (not Mithras) slays the primordial creature Gavaevodata which is represented as a bovine. Cumont held that a version of the myth must have existed in which Mithras, not Ahriman, killed the bovine.
Although people in pre-Christian Europe worshipped a wide variety of gods, and goddesses, some of the stories, associated with the sky-gods’ visit, were still popular in the Middle Ages and they spread through many European countries. Superstitious people in Medieval Europe believed in vampires, and goblins and also the legend about a saint’s battle with a dragon, (St.George and St.Michael), which dates back thousands of years to the early Middle East where it appears to have been an allegorical story concerning certain catastrophic events that reputedly occurred in the sky-god era and which had nothing, whatsoever, to do with a conflict with a wild animal.
When scholars discover similar, early, religious, traditions in cultures thousands of miles apart, some scholars believe they were spread by contact. Others claim that it was the result of parallel development. Many early people, they say, had similar ideas about a creating spirit and so, in their opinion, this is not reliable evidence. However, early people, especially in the Old World, used the seas, and rivers, as their highways and in addition to trading goods, they might also have spread their religious beliefs just as was done by later Christian missionaries. In support of the early contact theory, the legend about a visiting sky god appeared in numerous star lore traditions and it usually involved the Pleiades and the use of the same sacred numbers. Furthermore, when some native tribes adopted Christianity, they still retained certain elements of their earlier religion, which had become intermingled with their new beliefs, and when their original traditions, and customs, are separated from their present day Christian beliefs, they can be seen to be part of the Early World star-god religion.
So, for the benefit of those astronomers who are searching outer space for signs of intelligent life, for scholars, and sceptics, who say there is no evidence that extra-terrestrials have ever visited our planet, let me repeat that people throughout the Early World believed that E.T’s, from the Pleiades, civilized their people and that these beings were worshipped as gods. Furthermore, it’s tragic that, in some sky-god religions, thousands of humans, including children, and animals were offered in sacrifice to these beings and to other gods who were added to their pantheons. Even in today’s world, unknown to skeptical scholars, in various sources, there are numerous reminders of the early visit of extra-terrestrials in the form of early sacred architecture, mythology, numerology, place names and the titles of certain famous films, books, songs, well known commercial products, and star lore but most revealing of all, in the traditions relating to the Pleiades. When Tolkein wrote The Lord of the Rings, and The Hobbit, he based them upon Norse mythology but, what he may not have realized is that some of the features, that he introduced into his fascinating tales, relate back thousand years to the Annunaki era. But that’s another story.

PS1 ANCIENT CRAFTS AND INDUSTRIES
IN the third century B.C., when Babylonian civilisation was, except for a few priests and astronomers, virtually dead, a Babylonian priest named Berossus wrote an account of the traditions of his people. This account, written not in Sumerian or Akkadian but in Greek, included a description of the supposed origin of civilisation. According to Berossus,
In the first year [of the world] there appeared, from the Persian Gulf, a being named Oannes. His whole body was that of a fish. Under the fish’s head he had another head, and joined to the fish’s tail were feet like those of a man…. This being used to pass the day among men, and gave them knowledge of written documents and all kinds of knowledge and crafts. He taught them to construct cities, to found temples, to compile laws, and to survey the land; and made known to ring of fruit. In short, he instructed them the use of seeds and the gathered them in everything necessary for daily life. From that time nothing further has been discovered.
Two thousand years before this there had been a Sumerian myth in circulation, describing how the Water-god Enki (also the god of Wisdom) had created the world order. This god had created the sheepfolds, instituted cattle rearing, and given to the world such things as irrigation, fishing, ploughing and cultivation, the use of grain, brick-making and metal-working, and women’s crafts such as spinning and weaving.
Despite the gap of two millennia, the underlying idea is clearly the same. It was recognised that civilisation was in the first place based upon certain early developments in man’s mastery of his environment and available materials, of such a fundamental nature that they could be considered the revelation of a go . . more bluntly, the people of Babylonia, from first to last, took the view (whether rightly or wrongly) that what lay at the basis of civilisation was not simply spiritual values, but included a considerable measure of what we might now call technology.
PS2 The Mayan Mystery: Who was Kukulcan and Quetzalcoatl?
Ancient Deities with Possible Origins in Atlantis!
In the ancient world there are many mysteries, but none as perplexing as those found in the Mayan culture. From their beginnings to their mysterious disappearance the Mayan’s have baffled us all. One fact that has stumped many is actually one of the figures that is found throughout Mayan religion, the Serpent God, Kukulcan.
Kukulcan is one of the three gods that was thought to have created the Earth. He is a serpent in his natural form and was responsible for teaching the Mayan’s about such things as how to run a civilization, agriculture, and medicine. After a brief period of being on Earth Kukulcan returned to the ocean telling the Mayans that he would return at some later date. Mayans perceived European settlers as the second coming of their god Kukulcan and this was eventually lead to the trust between the two cultures, and the eventual defeat of the Mayans culture. The baffling question is, why would the Mayans think that European settlers were gods? Did they look anything like what the Mayans perceived as Kukulcan? The answer is yes!
Kukulcan had a human form as well as his feathered serpent form. Kukulcan would transform into a man standing about 6 feet tall with long white hair, but most interestingly he was a male Caucasian man with white skin! We find writing from the Mayans and sculptures of what is thought to be Kukulcan and they depict a very European looking figure, totally different from how the Mayan’s looked.
Mayan’s were dark skinned Latin looking people. They were normally not very tall and had brown eyes. Kukulcan in his human form was a complete contrast, having white or silver hair, white skin, blue eyes, and he was tall. Scientist and scholars alike have all wondered why this could have been the case? Why would a civilization have a divine figure, a god that looked nothing like themselves? Why would he look like people found in Western civilization? One theory actually involves the lost city of Atlantis!
Some would think that once Atlantis as described by Plato sank into the ocean some of its citizens would have survived. One man, Kukulcan, could have made his way into Mesoamerica and taught the Mayan’s the secrets of his lost city. This fits the profile of what Kukulcan would have been like, coming from the sea, looking like a European, and teachings of government, medicine, and agriculture, all fit into the idea that Kukulcan could have been from the ancient Atlantis. Also when he left, this mystery man could have traveled across Mexico and found those form the Aztec civilization.
Aztecs worshiped a similar god, Quetzalcoatl, who also matches the description of Kukulcan. Quetzalcoatl taught many of the same things as Kukulcan and once Spanish conquistadors began to arrive in Mesoamerica they were also accepted as gods by the Aztecs. This would lead some to believe that both Quetzalcoatl, and Kukulcan were indeed the same deity, or man as it may be the case.
Both the Mayan and Aztec civilizations remain mostly undiscovered and many mysteries surround both, but still the legend of Kukulcan and his many temples and statues astound and baffle scientist, and will for centuries to come.
PS3 Who were gods of the ancient times?
Zecharia Sitchin (July 11, 1920 – October 9, 2010) was an Azerbaijani-born American author of books proposing an explanation for human origins involving ancient astronauts. Sitchin attributes the creation of the ancient Sumerian culture to the Anunnaki, which he states was a race of extra-terrestrials. 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.
According to AA theory, our ancestors knew their gods. They were not gods in any religious sense, and there was no religion as such. The gods were not a matter of belief: the people lived side by side with them in cities built by human architects and engineers guided by Anunnaki (gods).
The relationship between gods and men existed not only in Mesopotamia, but throughout the ancient world. Many people think of the world today as a global village. This was much more so in antiquity. The Anunnaki could fly to anywhere in the world just as easily as we do, and they had the advantage of the entire world being under one control (theirs), as opposed to today’s world bitterly divided by politics and religion. The gods of all other lands were the very same Anunnaki, except that they were sometimes known by different names in different languages.
The Egyptian Ra was Marduk, his father Ptah was Enki, his brother Thoth was Ningishzidda. The Anunnaki sometimes had their own political quarrels too, and the occasional splits helped civilization spread throughout the world. The ancient Mesoamerican civilization was started when after being overthrown by Marduk/Ra, Thoth left Egypt with his loyal followers and went across the Pacific ocean to Mesoamerica, where he became Quetzalcoatl.
After fighting Anunnaki leaders annihilated their own spaceport in the Sinai peninsula with nuclear weapons, Enlil went to South America to build and operate new metal mining, refining, and space shipment facilities with his son known as Ishkur, Adad, or Teshub in the ancient Near East, where he became known as Viracocha.
Such incredible knowledge about the ancient world is in such sharp contrast with the dogmas taught in schools throughout the world. To give credit where it is due, the astounding work of recovering forgotten knowledge suppressed by today’s institutions of power and censure was done by the great scholar Zecharia Sitchin.
PS4 Who is the “Lord” from the Old Testament?
Forget for a moment that the following are the Bible quotations…
What would you think about the “Lord” if this were a movie script?
Is the “Lord”a peaceful, gentle, merciful and compassionate god?
- – -
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Get up early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh. Tell him, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go, so they can worship me. If you don’t, I will send more plagues on you and your officials and your people. Then you will know that there is no one like me in all the earth. By now I could have lifted my hand and struck you and your people with a plague to wipe you off the face of the earth. But I have spared you for a purpose—to show you my power and to spread my fame throughout the earth. — Exodus 9: 13-16

The gates of the city of Jericho were closed. The people in the city were afraid because the Israelites were near. No one went into the city, and no one came out. Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Look, I will let you defeat the city of Jericho. You will defeat the king and all the fighting men in the city. March around the city with your army once every day for six days.Tell seven of the priests to carry trumpets made from the horns of male sheep and to march in front of the priests who are carrying the Holy Box. On the seventh day march around the city seven times and tell the priests to blow the trumpets while they march. They will make one loud noise from the trumpets. When you hear that noise, tell all the people to begin shouting. When you do this, the walls of the city will fall down and your people will be able to go straight into the city.” -Joshua 6: 6-5
- – -
So then the priests blew the trumpets. When the people heard the trumpets, they began shouting. The walls fell down, and the people ran up into the city. So the Israelites defeated that city. The people destroyed everything in the city. They destroyed everything that was living there. They killed the young and old men, the young and old women, and the cattle, sheep, and donkeys. Joshua talked to the two spies. He said, “You made a promise to the prostitute. So go to her house and bring her out and all those who are with her.” So the two men went into the house and brought out Rahab, her father, mother, brothers, all her family, and all those who were with her. They put all the people in a safe place outside the camp of Israel.
Then the Israelites burned the whole city and everything in it except for the things made from silver, gold, bronze, and iron. They put these things in the LORD’S treasury. Joshua saved Rahab the prostitute, her family, and all those who were with her. Joshua let them live because Rahab helped the spies Joshua had sent out to Jericho. Rahab still lives among the Israelites today. — Joshua 6: 20-25
- – -
Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Don’t be afraid of that army, because I will allow you to defeat them. By this time tomorrow, you will have killed them all. You will cut the legs of the horses and burn all their chariots.”
So Joshua and his whole army surprised the enemy and attacked them at the river of Merom. The LORD allowed Israel to defeat them. The army of Israel defeated them and chased them to Greater Sidon, Misrephoth Maim, and the Valley of Mizpah in the east. The army of Israel fought until none of the enemy was left alive. Joshua did what the LORD said to do; he cut the legs of their horses and burned their chariots.
Then Joshua went back and captured the city of Hazor and killed its king. (Hazor was the leader of all the kingdoms that fought against Israel.) The army of Israel killed everyone in that city and completely destroyed all the people. There was nothing left alive. Then they burned the city.
Joshua captured all these cities and killed all their kings. He completely destroyed everything in these cities—just as Moses, the LORD’S servant, had commanded. But the army of Israel did not burn any cities that were built on hills. The only city built on a hill that they burned was Hazor. This is the city Joshua burned. The Israelites kept for themselves all the things and all the animals they found in the cities. But they killed all the people there. They left no one alive. Long ago the LORD commanded his servant Moses to do this. Then Moses commanded Joshua to do this. So Joshua obeyed God. He did everything that the LORD had commanded Moses.
– Joshua 11: 6-15
PS 5 Visitor’s Comment
Note: As a follow up to PS 4, we added to this post this significant comment from a visitor
… the Bible is inherently contradictory and confusing. If it is the word of God, which I can’t believe, why would God allow it to be called his word. Why make people apparently go off on superstitious repugnant tangents trying to decipher it? Is it that the Hebrews were to ignorant to understand the truth straight on so the only thing they could do was throw parables around and hope for the best interpretation. Why not like Buddhism, say it is what it is in a straight and plain language, some will get it and others wont, in this life at least. As for offspring and fallen angels, that could be said about the whole human race in general not just the Hebrews.
Your understanding in what I wrote as an attempt to judge God is misconstrued. As we are all imperfect, no human has the right to even consider judging Our Perfect Divine Creator. What I was doing is actually being sarcastic and judgmental of the ignorant way God was being portrayed in the Bible. It is that ignorance which has tainted the the Christian perception of Christ of the so called New Testament. God is not a person nor a he or she, the Transcendent Creator is beyond human egotistic intellectual comprehension. The only way to know God is the way Buddhism postulates, one must become one with the Creator like a rain drop becomes one with the ocean.
Let us have a brief look here at the new way God was viewed and interpreted by the Christian off-spring of the Hebrews.
The Christian Warrior God:
It was upon the Hebrew images of the murdering warrior God, the Lord of Hosts, that Pope Urban II proclaimed that war for the sake of God was holy. In fact, acting under the religious delusion they were serving Jesus Christ, when in fact they were following the philosophy of Paul (who spent the first half of his life harassing Christians) and the dictates of Peter whom Jesus repeatedly castigated as “Satan” e.g. St. Matthew 16: 23; Matthew 17: 24-25; Mark 8:33: “But he turned and said unto Peter, “Get thee behind me, Satan, thou art an offense unto me; for thou savors not the things that be of God, but those of men” ) the Catholic Popes instigated numerous Crusades and inquisitions. In consequence hundreds of thousands of Moslems, Jews, and women and children, were sexually tortured, slaughtered, spitted, and roasted alive, and their cities and villages pillaged and set ablaze. All in the name of God. So intense was their limbic blood lust that even Christians were murdered.
For example, in the 13th Century an army of some thirty thousand Christian knights and Crusaders descended into southern France and attacked the town of Beziers in search of heretics. Over thirteen thousand Christians flocked to the church’s for protection. However, when the Bishop, one of the Pope’s representatives, was informed that the army was unable to distinguish between true believers and heretics, he replied, “Kill them all. God will recognize his own.”
However, in order to recruit those worthy of such a glorious undertaking, the Pope had to appeal to murderers, rapists, molesters of children, and those who enjoyed the prolonged torture of their victims. “You oppressors of orphans, you robbers of widows, you homicides, you blasphemers, you plunderers of others’ rights… If you want to take counsel for your souls you must go forward boldly as knights of Christ…” so proclaimed the Pope who offered “indulgences” and forgiveness to all those who would commit blasphemies such as abnormal sex with murder; and among men, the sexual torture of women in the name of God and Jesus Christ.
Hence, after the men had marched off to Catholic Crusades or had been killed, the women were left unprotected and were temporarily freed of male dominance. In consequence, some began to practice their own religion and worship their own Gods. In consequence, the Popes and the Catholic Church proclaimed them witches and declared war against women. Hence, in 1252, Pope Innocent IV issued the Ad Exitrpanda, which authorized the execution of heretics (e.g. wealthy landowners) and the seizure of their goods, and the prolonged sexual torture of women who were beautiful, wealthy, or old, ugly, and eccentric and/or who gathered in groups to talk and converse and possibly worship pagan goddesses.
Indeed, when the Papal fathers and the Dominicans Heinrich Kramer and Johann Sprenger issued the infamous Papal Bull and the Malleus Maleficarum (witch’s hammer), a blood lust regarding “woman the witch, healer and sorceress” was unleashed and hundreds of thousands were burned and/or sexually tortured to death “For she is a liar by nature, so in her speech she stings while she delights us….for her voice is like the song of the Sirens, who with their sweet melody entice the passerby’s and kill them…” (Malleus Maleficarum).
As noted, because many of the men (the Crusaders) had been killed or were serving in the army of the Christian Catholic God, the women were often left unprotected and sometimes whole villages were destroyed, or all the women in a given area were rounded up by the Catholic authorities. These females, particularly those who were exceedingly attractive or ugly, were then hideously tortured and then slaughtered by burning, boiling in oil, crushing, and via whatever device the religious authorities felt appropriate or which suited their sick minds. who were old, eccentric, childless, and particularly women who owned property and pets, such as cats. Indeed, the cats would be tortured and murdered alongside the women. The “Black Plague” in fact was in part a consequence of the denunciation and killing of cats, coupled with the sanctification of rats and mice (the proverbial church mouse), by the Catholic authorities.
As is well known, the Spanish and Catholic missionaries, acting at the behest of the Catholic Popes (and their Spanish/Catholic Sovereigns), continued these Satanic practices once they invaded the America’s during the 1500?s and up through the 19th century. As the Catholic Dominican Bishop Bartolom de Las Casas reported to the Pope: the Aztec and Indian natives were hung and burnt alive “in groups of 13… thus honoring our Savior and the 12 apostles.”
Nevertheless, mass murder, torture, rape, pedophilia, and the castration of young boys were probably not what Jesus Christ had in mind when he preached his gospel despite his own depressed, irritable, and labile character: “But love ye your enemies and do good and lend, hoping for nothing and your reward shall be great. Be ye merciful…judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not and ye shall not be condemned: forgive and ye shall be forgiven” (Luke, 7: 35-37); “For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them” (Luke 10: 56; however, see Matthew 10:16 vs. 34-35). On the other hand, the “God” of the “Old Testament” repeatedly approved of mass murder and rape, and in fact employed these practices against His own chosen people. Indeed, again does not this “Biblical God” tell us He is the source of all evil.
Again we are confronted with a perceived holy scripture, “The Word of God” bequeathing un-Godly convoluted and contradictory information. Is it a wonder that the three Abrahamic religions, Jews, Christians and Moslems, relying on the same original Old Testament text for their scriptures have been at each others throats since their inception?
A house is only as good as its foundations. The Christian and Moslem house was built on that old warring God Yahweh. They will never find peace as long as they dance around that most controversial book ever written, The Bible.
I rest my case. Peace to you my friend, Namaste.
