Prologue
WHY WERE THE ANCIENT GODS SO SHY?
The literature and mythology of ancient cultures is filled with accounts of dragons, flyingserpents, and other winged lizards. Who, then, were these flying, fire-breathing creatures thatseem to have coexisted with early Man, sometimes as his benefactor but many more times ashis tormentor?Perhaps they were just fabulous creatures, the product of Man's fertile imagination. On theother hand, it is possible they were the manifestation of something else - of traumatic eventsso disturbing and deeply rooted in his past, that knowledge of their true nature has beensubconsciously suppressed and remembered only in allegorical terms.Quite a few civilisations of this world trace their ancestry to such dragon-like lizards or flyingserpents. In most cases, they are credited with bringing the benefits of civilisation toMankind. And quite often they are described as his actual creator.Ancient man portrayed these creatures as superior beings or gods, who could effortlesslymove about the skies in their "fiery chariots" or "boats of heaven". They usually lived in a"heavenly abode" and often descended to interfere in the affairs of Man.The earliest and the most important of cultures, that of Mesopotamia, was probably foundedby these serpent-like gods. The colonisation of this planet by these creatures is described inone of the most dramatic and significant of ancient documents. It is the so-called SumerianKing-List.Dated to the Third Millennium BC, this document provides the succession of the Kings of Sumer and their successors, the length of their reigns since, what was to the Sumerians, thebeginning of time when their ancestors came here and "descended" to Earth to establish anumber of cities on the alluvial plain of Mesopotamia. Calling themselves Anunnaki, theseProto-Sumerians are credited with the establishment of Western, if not World, civilisation.Surprisingly enough, there is considerable data on these early civilisations - the Sumerian,later to be replaced by the Akkadian and the Babylonian cultures. From the numerouscuneiform tablets, monuments, and artefacts that have been unearthed in recent times, it ispossible to reconstruct the events, which transpired in the early days of Mankind.

There is also a mass of evidence, which was originally derived from the same source, but wasgiven a religious interpretation by being transmitted through priestly channels. It was fromthis vast reservoir of ancient sources that the stories of the Old Testament were derived.From a combination of these ancient secular and religious sources, it is thus possible to piecetogether the story of our ancestry, which lies in the coming of the alien serpent-gods orastronauts who colonised Earth many eons ago.It will be found that our ancestors started a colony on Earth in order to obtain metals for theirhomeplanet. In order to process and transport these metals by air freighter to the orbitingmother ship, they built five operational cities in Mesopotamia. One of these served as a spacelaunch platform.The Sumerian people referred to these "gods" as Anunnaki, literally the sons of An, theirchief god and leader. The Anunnaki were an alien race. In reality they were a race of sapientreptiles. They required a cheap labour force and for this reason they created a primitive man.By combining the characteristics of the native ape-man or Neanderthal type man, with theirown saurian nature, they produced the "Adam" of the Old Testament. This Adam was half-human and half-reptile, however, and being a clone could not reproduce himself.As conditions began to change on Earth and the climate dried out, it became necessary forthem to modify the Adam to better adapt it to the variable climate. The Homo Saurus wasmodified and given more mammalian traits. This was the Biblical "Fall of Man" where Adamachieved "knowing" or the ability to reproduce sexually.As a result of this genetic modification, Man lost most of his saurian appearance and nature,his shiny, luminous skin and scaly hide. He acquired mammalian characteristics - a softflexible skin, body hair, the need to sweat, and the ability to produce live young. He no longerran around naked. He now had to wear clothing for comfort and protection. For all purposes,Man was now a Homo Sapiens. Modern man or Cro-Magnon Man had arrived upon thescene.Man soon populated the Earth as slaves for these saurian masters. The astronauts whodescended to Earth sorely tested him and mated with the daughters of Man. Known in theScriptures as the Nefilim, they not only produced mixed offspring, but also conducted geneticexperiments, which went awry and produced many monstrous forms.This was a trying period for Mankind, for in this era he was literally food for the gods. It isthe time of the Biblical Patriarchs and the Sumerian god kings.The turmoil on Earth was abruptly ended by the onset of a natural worldwide catastrophe,known as the Deluge or Great Flood. At this time, the gods retreated to their space ship,leaving behind their semi-divine offspring to perish with Mankind in the world flood.After the waters had subsided they descended once more to establish new cities on the plainsof Mesopotamia. Again mating with Mankind, they produced a race of semi-divine beings torule their empire on Earth. In addition, a race of warrior-gods was established in the lands of the Levant. Descendants of the Nefilim, but known by the name of Rephaim, this barbaricrace plagued humanity for thousands of years and were eliminated as a threat until the FirstMillennium BC.In ancient Mesopotamia, the gods resided in a temple atop a ziggurat, a stepped pyramidraised above the plains, and were shielded from the general public and accessible only to afew trusted priests. Here they ate in privacy, surrounded by curtains, so that even the

attending priests could not see them dine. One wonders if their table manners were soatrocious that they had to be hidden even from their retainers. Or was it something moresinister?In the Old Testament, the overriding need for privacy is also true. During the event known asthe Exodus, the deity lived in a tent and was never seen, nor did he dine in public. Specificinstructions were given to Moses on how to prepare the food, which was left on a grill nearthe quarters of the deity for him to snack on in privacy.It was forbidden for humans to see him. Moses was told flatly by his God that "you cannotsee my face, for man may not see me and live". And this prohibition against being seen byhumans is carried to an extreme throughout the Scriptures. It became an injunction of not tomake "a graven image" or a likeness of the deity.Thus Man is not only banned from seeing what his god looked like but even to make animage of what he thought he looked like. Why the taboo? Could it be that its appearancewould be so foreign and repulsive that it had to be withheld from man? One would logicallyassume that if the deities were so superior and grand as the Scriptures indicate that they wouldbe flattered and pleased to allow man to see and copy their magnificence!Only a privileged few were allowed to even approach the deities. In Mesopotamia they werethe demi-gods, the offspring of the mating of a god or goddess and a human. These formedthe aristocracy, and were entrusted by the gods to see to their needs and to form a barrier withMankind. Even these demi-gods or "changelings," as they were called, were somewhatstrange in appearance and probably had certain reptilian characteristics. The fabledGilgamesh, for example, had something odd in his appearance that made him stand out fromnormal men. The Biblical Patriarchs also had something unusual about their looks as is shownby the irrational behaviour of Noah when he was seen naked by his sons.According to the ancient Babylonian tradition, as reported by Berossus, the Babylonian priestwriting in Athens in The Third Century BC, Man's ancestry and origin can be traced to oneOannes, an amphibious creature that came out of the Persian Gulf to teach the arts of civilisation to Man.Berossus called them "annedoti", which translates as "the repulsive ones" in Greek. He alsorefers to them as "musarus" meaning "an abomination". In this way, Babylonian traditioncredits the founding of civilisation to a creature, which they considered to be a repulsiveabomination.If the tradition had been invented, a more normal attitude would have been to glorify thesecreatures as splendid gods or heroes. Yet the fact that they chose to describe their ancestorsthis way argues for the authenticity of the account.The reptilian appearance of the Biblical gods was a well-kept secret and only occasionally isit perceptible in the Old Testament, as for example, the obvious worship of the "seraph" or"brazen serpent" in the incident during the Exodus. There are many more references, many of them explicit, in the mass of religious literature, which forms the basis for the books of theOld Testament.The view is now accepted that the Old Testament went through considerable editing andselection by the priestly transcribers. But elsewhere in the religious literature, not subject totheir heavy hand, there is found a different picture.In the Haggadah, the source of Jewish legend and oral tradition, it is revealed that Adam andEve lost their "lustrous and horny hide" as the result of eating the forbidden fruit.
