Specifically, he believed that extraterrestrials from the planet Nibiru arrived on Earth 450,000 years ago and created us by genetically engineering female apes.
Do you believe him? Why, or why not?
That might explain the 'modern man' that jahz was talking about a couple of weeks ago.
So how did he come by this information do you know?
He translated ancient (pre?) Sumerian texts, apparently. That, and Mesopotamian iconography. His own personal interpretations, unsupported by modern scholarship.
This is a far more convincing argument for modern man than the adam and eve version, the possibility of aliens visiting around the universe to 'create' intelligent reasoning life forms is more persuasive and possible than any god of mythology. I prefer the rather less dramatic theory that a virus caused brain changes in a few creatures that were a hugely useful to those individuals with it and so ended up being bred into us. I am still fascinated by the mitchondrial dna that appeared in humans (they say around 80,000 years ago but . . .) and is passed to new humans in the sperm ! I kinda love the idea that we might actually be just a carrier for anaother life form, actually we are the 'other' life form but we think the carrier is us LOL
I think they share a few ideas, but I am not honestly sure. I met Icke, decades ago. Charming man.
I wonder if that is why Icke had so many followers? Even though he was wrong about the world ending in 2009 it doesn't seem to have phased them much.
There is a legend here about one tribe in the far north that says they did not arrive in a normal waka (canoe) and is said to have arrived via a UFO. The said tribe have caves (hidden from would be skeptics) with their drawings that describe the journey from there to here. I have seen one of the caves but it makes no sense to me because it's very ancient. Sumerian drawings or language seem to have some recurring themes. At least with the ones I have seen. The one cave I saw was....how do I say it...stranger.
If what Zecharia says is true, it would explain why other apes did not evolve the way we were have meant to evolve.
Actually, they did evolve, into what they are today. We didn't evolve from modern apes but from the same ancestor species that apes evolved from. This is a common mis statement that drives me nuts because of course it's not true that we evolved from apes, any more then our brothers are our parents! That's not the relationship being described by evolution.
So David Icke's reptilian aliens masquerading as the Royal Family and other government leaders are different aliens that made us fom apes? How come these Nibiru aliens haven't come back to see how we're getting on?
Maybe they are on their way? But space travel takes a lot of time, so that thousands of years pass between visits?
It would make sense, what doesn't is why they left knowing how long it would take to return. Maybe we are the result of a bet, like if we are still here (haven't wiped ourselves out or succumbed to natural disasters) one of the alien scientists will have to buy the other a galactic beer?
According to Icke some are here already. The imagery you evoke in my minds eye of galactic travellers with galactic beers makes me laugh. But hey you could be right!
The gold they were mining for using the apes to do the labour was said to have helped speed up intergalactic travel. So maybe we ran out of that gold?
I wonder how gold helps with intergalactic travel?
I am not aware of how it might be used as an energy source, if we could work that out WE could use it to go visiting the stars!
I also wonder why they didn't take all the gold when they left? Why leave so much behind?
Sure do wish we could directly ask one of them, because otherwise it's just fun speculation
If you want to follow that line of reasoning then they would have done an excellent job !! If this was a serious discusion then they would have left us with the idea of huge value of gold and we have been busily making and stockpiling it for thousands of years - maybe they are coming back to collect it all, fort knox might just dissapear in a flash of light any time soon LOL
It might be because gold is believed to be as a result from an exploding star (or something like that) and it's properties are different to any other metals. Apparently it can be used like an electrical connector of some sort except it's expensive so I don't think they use it that often. Oh and they use it somehow in space crafts and it makes a neat sun visor for spacesuits apparently.
Maybe it speeds up their spacecraft or something?
Maybe they only needed it to leave?
The mind boggles.
My Dad was a huge Icke fan, my adopted mom was really into Zecharia. I personally don't find any of their stuff any less believable then the stories in every religion I can think of. Some times the alien human hybrid story seems more believable then religion yet many many people believe religion and wouldn't call it crazy to believe.

is there a logic..

I have often wondered if we were to make first contact with an advanced alien race, how would that change the view on religion and God. Religion seems to assume God made the earth and all the creatures on it with humans...

If you dont believe in it then what is death in your point of view? Do you think that death is the end of everything and there is no life here after?

Scientists tell us that the great apes and humans share 97% of genetic material. Does that remaining 3% of genetic material explain human intelligence AND explain why humans are so violent?

I am having a hard time finding the right forum thread for evolution. I couldn't find a thread in the education area or the science area.Anywho, I got to thinking today about the fact that evolution is considered fact...
