Technologies of the gods
DID ADAM HAVE THREE PARENTS?
News of advances in artificial human reproduction –- the treatment of infertility, In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), genetic enhancement, cloning -– have become commonplace. Yet a headline over a recent news report caught my attention and aroused my curiosity:
IVF Creates Fetuses With Three Parents
The report, as rendered in the New Scientist issue of 18 October 2003, concerned “a woman that has become pregnant through a procedure that combines a controversial IVF method with one of the techniques used for cloning.”
The feat was performed by American scientific teams at a Medical Science University and concerned a woman who failed to conceive, even through IVF techniques, because her embryos stopped developing after two days. The new procedure, using IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) methods, first removed the woman’s egg, fertilized it with her husband’s sperm outside the womb, and then –- and that was the innovation –- obtained the eggs of another woman (“the donor”), emptied them of their genetic nuclei, re-injected into these donated eggs the fertilized material from the woman’s egg, and then re-implanted the manipulated eggs in wombs (the woman’s or that of a donor).
The key change in the previously-recorded procedures was that by using the donor’s egg even without its normal DNA, the DNA that comes only from the woman -- mitochondrial DNA or mtDNA –- has been preserved in the recombined egg. By having the mtDNA not of the woman but that of the donor, conception and pregnancy took hold.
Thus, not only procedurally but also genetically, the fetus had three parents: The woman, the male partner, and the female donor.
Now, Read the Sumerian Texts…
This report caught my attention because it sounds very much like the problems, and the solutions, encountered by Enki and Ninmah (later known as Ninti) when they engaged in genetic engineering to fashion “The Adam” -– the Earthling -– by upgrading the wild Homo erectus found in southeast Africa to become Homo sapiens (you and me)
The Sumerian creation texts -– yes, texts, not one but several –- have been reported by me in my first book, The 12th Planet, enlarged upon in Genesis Revisited, and then rendered in maximal detail in The Lost Book of Enki (2002). The methods used, the trial and error, the involvement of the young son of Enki Ningishzidda, are all there. But after the successful fashioning of the male Adamu, the efforts to fashion a female counterpart failed. It was then that Enki realized that the problem might be the re-implanting of the fertilized egg in the womb of an Earthling female.
“For a counterpart to Adamu to be fashioned, in the womb of an Anunnaki female conception is needed!” so did Enki say.
Success came after Enki’s spouse, Ninki, volunteered to have the recombined egg implanted in her womb. The change, the recent experiments reveal, was that the source of the mtDNA was that of Ninki, an Anunnaki female, and not the Earthling mother.
Ti-Amat –- the biblical Eve -– thus had the DNA of three parents.
Once again, modern science corroborates the Sumerian knowledge.
And Speaking of Clay...
While writing the above article, another news item captured the media's (and my) attention. Headlined MAYBE WE CAME FROM CLAY AFTER ALL, it reported (to quote the MSNBC News version) from Washington on October 23, 2003 that Science backed up religion Thursday in a study that suggests life may have indeed sprung from clay -- just as many faiths teach.
A team at Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital in Bostonsaid they had shown that materials in clay supported processes similar to those that may have given rise to life.
Specifically, a clay mixture called montmorillonite not only helps form little bags of fat and liquid, but helps cells use genetic material called RNA; that, in turn, is one of the key processes of life.
The report then quotes the scientists involved for additional details of the procedures based on the use of clay, and refers the readers to the relevant verses in Genesis.
In The 12th Planet I quoted the relevant Sumerian texts (that preceded the biblical tale by several millennia) that refer to the use of clay. In the The Lost Book of Enki the repeated failures to obtain a non-defective newborn are described, with success coming only after Enki realized that
Perchance the shortfall is not in the admixture...
Perchance neither in the female's oval
nor in the essences is the hindrance
Of what the Earth itself is fashioned,
perchance that is what is missing?
And success in obtaining the perfect model of Adamu came after Ninmah followed his instructions and instead of combining the genes in a crystal vessel, it was done in a vessel made of the CLAY OF THE EARTH. (The Lost Book of Enki, page 136).
In this detail too, modern science is following the "Technologies of the gods."
Dialogue in Bellaria
SITCHIN AND VATICAN THEOLOGIAN DISCUSS UFO's,
EXTRATERRESTRIALS, ANGELS, CREATION OF MAN
Report by Zecharia Sitchin
In what must be a historic first, a high official of the Vatican and a Hebrew scholar discussed the issue of Extraterrestrials and the Creation of Man, and though different from each other in upbringing, background, religion and methodology, nevertheless arrived at common conclusions:
* Yes, Extraterrestrials can and do exist on other planets
* Yes, they can be more advanced than us
* Yes, materially, Man could have been fashioned from a pre-existing sentient being.
The high Vatican official was Monsignor Corrado Balducci, a Catholic theologian with impressive credentials: A member of the Curia of the Roman Catholic Church, a Prelate of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples and the Propagation of the Faith, leading exorcist of the Archdiocese of Rome, a member of the Vatican's Beatification Committee, an expert on Demonology and the author of several books. Appointed in the Vatican to deal with the issue of UFO's and Extraterrestrials, he has made in recent years pronouncements indicating a tolerance of the subjects; but he has never before met and had a dialogue with a Hebrew scholar, and gone beyond prescribed formulations to include the touchy issue of the Creation of Man.
The Hebrew scholar was me -- Zecharia Sitchin: A researcher of ancient civilizations, a biblical archaeologist, a descendant of Abraham…
The Monsignor and I almost met for such a dialogue last December, but it did not come about. This time we were scheduled to meet in Bellaria, Italy, at a conference whose theme was “The Mystery of Human Existence.” I arrived there with my wife and a score of fans from the usa, on March 31st, scheduled to address the audience of over a thousand the next day. The Monsignor was nowhere in sight; but he was there the next morning to hear my presentation. “I drove the whole night from Rome to hear you,” he said.
My talk, ably translated by my Italian editor Tuvia Fogel, included a slide presentation that added a pictorial dimension to the evidence from ancient times in support of Sumerian texts, on which my eight books based the following conclusions:
We are not alone -- not just in the vast universe, but in our own solar system; There is one more planet in our solar system, orbiting beyond Pluto but nearing Earth periodically; Advanced "Extraterrestrials” -- the Sumerians called them Anunnaki, the Bible Nefilim -- started to visit our planet some 450,000 years ago; And, some 300,000 years ago, they engaged in genetic engineering to upgrade Earth's hominids and fashion Homo sapiens, the Adam. In that, they acted as Emissaries for the Universal Creator -- God.
"We have much to talk about,” Msgr. Balducci said to me as he came forward to congratulate me on my presentation; "I have great esteem for your scholarship," he said.
We returned to the hotel for lunch. Our table was surrounded in a semi-circle by my American fans, intent on not missing a word of the forthcoming dialogue. In the hours-long session, Msgr. Balducci outlined the positions he was going to state, from a prepared text, in his talk the next day. While my approach was based on physical evidence, his was a purely Roman Catholic theological-philosophical one, seeking the spiritual aspects. Yet, our conclusions converged.
Msgr. Balducci's Positions
ON UFO's. "There must be something in it." The hundreds and thousands of eyewitness reports leave no room for denying that there is a measure of truth in them, even allowing for optical illusions, atmospheric phenomena and so on. As a Catholic theologian such witnessing cannot be dismissed. "Witnessing is one way of transmitting truth, and in the case of the Christian religion, we are talking about a Divine Revelation in which witnessing is crucial to the credibility of our faith.”
ON LIFE ON OTHER PLANETS: “That life may exist on other planets is certainly possible... The Bible does not rule out that possibility. On the basis of scripture and on the basis of our knowledge of God's omnipotence, His wisdom being limitless, we must affirm that life on other planets is possible." Moreover, this is not only possible, but also credible and even probable. '"Cardinal Nicolo Cusano (1401-1464) wrote that there is not a single star in the sky about which we can rule out the existence of life, even if different from ours.”
ON INTELLIGENT EXTRATERRESTRIALS: "When I talk about Extraterrestrials, we must think of beings who are like us -- more probably, beings more advanced than us, in that their nature is an association of a material part and a spiritual part, a body and a soul, although in different proportions than human beings on Earth." Angels are beings who are purely spiritual, devoid of bodies, while we are made up of spirit and matter but still at a low level. "It is entirely credible that in the enormous distance between Angels and humans, there could be found some middle stage, that is beings with a body like ours but more elevated spiritually. If such intelligent beings really exist on other planets, only science will be able to prove; but in spite of what some people think, we would be in a position to reconcile their existence with the Redemption that Christ has brought us.”
The Anunnaki and the Creation of Man
Well then, I asked Msgr. Balducci, does it mean that my presentation was no great revelation to you? We appear to agree, I said, that more advanced extraterrestrials can exist, and I use science to evidence their coming to Earth ...I then quote the Sumerian texts that say that the Anunnaki (“Those who from heaven to Earth came”) genetically improved an existing being on Earth to create the being that the Bible calls Adam.
My conclusion regarding your presentation, Msgr. Balducci answered, is that more than anything else your whole approach is based on physical evidence, it concerns itself with matter, not with spirit. This is an important distinction, "because if this distinction is made, I can bring up the view of the great theologian, Professor Father Marakoff, who is still alive and is greatly respected by the Church. He formulated the hypothesis that when God created Man and put the soul into him, perhaps what is meant is not that Man was created from mud or lime, but from something pre-existing, even from a sentient being capable of feeling and perception. So the idea of taking a pre-man or hominid and creating someone who is aware of himself is something that Christianity is coming around to…The key is the distinction between the material body and the soul granted by God."
From Anunnaki to God
Yes, I responded to the theologian, in my writings I deal with the physical evidence; but already in my first book (The 12th Planet), the very last sentence of the last paragraph raises the question: If the Extraterrestrials "created" us, who created them on their planet?
From this my own thinking and the contents of my subsequent books evolved toward the spiritual or "divine" aspects. The Anunnaki, I have explained, were just emissaries (and that is what the Hebrew word Malachim, translated Angels, means). They thought that it was their decision to come here for selfish reasons and to fashion us because they needed workers; but in truth they only carried out the Almighty God's wishes and plans.
If such Extraterrestrials were so involved, Msgr. Balducci said, even by your own interpretation they had to do with Man's physics, body and rationality: but God alone had to do with the Soul!
My second book, that deals with Man's aspiration to ascend the heavens, is titled The Stairway to Heaven, I told Msgr, Balducci, "it seems to me that we are ascending the same stairway to heaven, though from different steps," I said.
We ended the dialogue as friends, determined to stay in touch and continue.

I have tons more articles and factual documents that refer to this sbject. Dinosaurs were "created" by sentient beings and left to "micro evolve" as we were.
It's fact. Religion is a control mechanism to keep man undereducated and in a controlled environment.
If you read the Bible carefully .....
Genesis 1:26; And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
When you look into a mirror you see the product of DNA, your physical IMAGE. DNA is a language that describes the physical characteristics of the body you are animating.
Genesis 1:26 is specific in telling us that the human race is the product of a plural entity where each of those entities possess their OWN physical body or IMAGE.
The Orthodox interpretation of the bible holds that “God” is in reference to the Holy Trinity. If the Orthodox interpretation of the bible is true then all three members of the Trinity MUST be animates of physical bodies as Genesis 1:26 reflects.
