FIRST TESTAMENT---The Stones of Knowing


FIRST TESTAMENT---The Stones of Knowing

First Testament---The Stones of Knowing presents a collection of relatively new, alternative thoughts on how the solar system, contemporary western religions, and even human life as we know it have come to be. Although the book is put forth utilizing a fictional plot, much of the information presented is based on actual archeological and historical facts. The book centers around the ancient Sumerian culture, the oldest known advanced civilization on Earth to date. The Sumerian civilization first appeared in ancient Mesopotamia, specifically the area around what is now southern Iraq, at about 3800 BCE, pre-dating the Egyptian pharaonic culture by about 600 years. Many of the world's "firsts", such as the wheel, codes of law, even beer that are often erroneously attributed to other cultures, were actually Sumerian originals. Their pantheon of gods and the stories concerning them were the basis for Judaic, Islamic, and even Christian religions.

The book is actually comprised of two smaller "books". The first part, which is entitled The Stones, tells the story of three scholars on a quest for ancient truth. An anthropologist, a geologist, and a sci-fi/alternative history writer join forces to decipher an ancient Sumerian clay tablet which contains information on how to unlock fantastic secrets of the past. Their search eventually leads them to the Great Pyramid at Giza, a monument they have discovered is actually a portal to ancient truths. Their journey is constantly threatened by a radical Islamic Jihadist group bent on preventing their success.

The second part,
The Knowing, is an account of the ancient history of the Sumerian gods---the Anunnaki---and the knowledge they had ingeniously secured for mankind to eventually discover. After re-activating the pyramid and through a process involving vibrational harmonic transference (VHT), the three explorers are almost instantaneously endowed with the true history of the Earth. The knowledge includes information concerning the birth of the solar system, the creation of Man, the true architects of the pyramids, the upheavaling of Sodom and Gormorrah, even the true parentage of Jesus himself. It is a culmination of scientific knowledge going back to the Big Bang, and a history of the activities of the Anunnaki on Earth from some 450,000 years ago until the time of Christ.

The Epilogue finally brings both books together. The dissemination of this knowledge to the rest of the world brings about an enlightened understanding of our place in the cosmos for the entire population of Earth, marking the beginning of a new age for humankind. The time the world receives this rapture....

This is an intriguing summary of your book. Why doesn't an ad for FIRST TESTAMENT appear on this page? Wouldn't that be the most efficient way to market it?

Hi, onthewriteside I can't help but be struck by the fact that your "Novel" outline so closely follows the published information on the subject matter.Personaly I tend to believe much of that information for just the reasons an anthropologist , geologist,and Archeologist,and other scientists such as geneologists would have to say on the subject matter.You may bring the subject matter to the forefront of the consciousness of the masses.I find it Interesting that you should pick that subject matter for your Novel as you don't seem to believe the subject matter to be truthful to some extent ! I'm posting some links here .I'm curious what your reaction to them! NEW MESSAGE FROM GOD THE BLUEBEAM PROJECT TO DECIEVE MANKIND BIBLE CODE ON THE ANNUNAKI

How very interesting. I think I detect a bit of a strain from Fingerprints of the Gods in that.

Thanks for your comment! Yes, you are correct that I present a great deal of actual research in the novel. In fact the main character, Jean Rodenbaie (the writer/historian), is a huge proponent of Zecharia Sitchin's theories, and Sitchin's ideas are cited throughout much of the book. The "Knowing" section of the novel presents ideas with roots in a combination of sources including mainstream science, fringe science and new age stuff. The reason I decided on a fictional format for the book is that I felt it was probably a better way to get some of the "alternative" stuff in front of more people. It isn't that I necessarily "believe or don't believe" in some of the alternative theories out there, I just felt that a lot of it deserves more attention than it may currently be receiving, and so...the book!

Some of the "evidence" presented in The Fingerprints of the Gods is presented in the book, but a great deal of what Graham Hancock presents in that book is not original. I think that book was published back in the '90's, and Sitchin had put forth a lot of the same ideas a decade or two before. But you are correct, I do build on ideas put forth by both of these guys as well as others! Thanks for the comment!

Sounds like an interesting book! I'll be sure to check it out (I know I already asked about the book on the forums, but I'm still knew to this HubPages thing!). I'm currently writing my first novel...and it's more a playful fantasy.

Nice to see that you attribute the year 2012 as a time of rebirth instead of a year of destruction as so many other people do. The world didn't end in 1999, it didn't end in 2000, and it didn't end on June 6, 2006. Which either means that this whole end of the world thing is bunk, or God is really bad at numerology. ;)

I take it all the people who have commented on this book have read it? I would like to read it, but it seems that it's not been published yet|| I've tried googling it but there's no site you can buy it from!

If anyone can tell me how I can buy this book, I'd love to know!!
