Part 2

We ended part one of this feature pointing out that many scholars believe sky, sea, and physical earth contain extra-dimensional ("spiritual") entities. In some cases these beings are described as locked away or contained behind barriers of some type--as in gates--with warnings to humans about seeking their communion. When contact is desired, beings of startling similarity have often materialized from sky, sea, or beneath the earth's surface, as they did in the biblical narrative of 1 Samuel where they ascended up from "out of the earth."

The story in 1 Samuel 28 makes reference to these beings as 'gods'. When Saul asked the woman with the "familiar spirit" what had scared her so much, she answered, "I saw gods ascending out of the earth." The Endorian may have referred to Samuel as a "god" (see Ex. 22:28), but many Christians are uncomfortable with the idea of communicating with the dead and insist the reference had to be to something else.

What, is the question.

The Amalantrah Working


In 1918, famed occultist Aleister Crowley attempted to create a dimensional vortex that would bridge the gap between the world of seen and unseen.

The ritual was called the Amalantrah Working, and according to Crowley became successful when a presence manifested itself through the rift. He called the being "Lam" and drew a portrait of it. The startling image, detailed almost 90 years ago, bears powerful similarity with "Alien Greys" of later pop culture.

Nearly three decades after the Amalantrah Working, rocket scientist and co-founder of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Jack Parsons, and his pal, L. Ron Hubbard (Church of Scientology founder), conducted a second ritual, the 'Babalon Working', in an attempt to reopen the gateway created by Crowley. The two men were not seeking audience with Lam.

They wanted the spirit of Babylon, the archetypal divine feminine, to pass through the portal, and to incarnate itself within a human being. Many adepts of enochian magic and Ordo Templi Orientis believe they succeeded, and that she--the whore of Babylon--walks the earth today.

It would come as no surprise, as Babylonian and earlier "gods" have been coming through "gates" for some time. The universal, timeless phenomenon, is recorded in the mythos of every ancient culture.


Defining the gods of gateways

A popular hypothesis sometimes called "The Ancient Astronaut" theory claims that super-intelligent beings have been visiting the earth through dimensional gates for eon. These are "the gods of mythology" and responsible for creating the human specie. 

In the introduction to his bestselling book, Chariots of the Gods?, Erich von Daniken, who, it might be argued, is a father of the Ancient Astronaut theory, said:

I claim that our forefathers received visits from the universe in the remote past, even though I do not yet know who these extra-terrestrial intelligences were or from which planet they came. I nevertheless proclaim that these "strangers" annihilated part of mankind existing at the time and produced a new, perhaps the first, homo sapiens.

As was illustrated in the Hollywood films Contact, and Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, von Daniken's premise took America by storm in the 1960's with the proposition that mankind was possibly the offspring of an ancient, perhaps ongoing, extra-terrestrial experiment. Ufologists like Daniken assert that the gods of the mythological record may have been evidence of, and a reaction to, encounter with other-world beings. Ancient men would have considered space travelers as gods and would have recorded their arrival, their experiments, and their departure, in hieroglyphs, megaliths, and stone tablets, as a "supernatural" encounter between gods and men. 

Mr. Daniken continues:

While [the] spaceship disappears again into the mists of the universe our friends will talk about the miracle—"The gods were here!"....they will make a record of what happened: uncanny, weird, miraculous. Then their texts will relate—and drawings will show—that gods in golden clothes were there in a flying boat that landed with a tremendous din. They will write about chariots which the gods drove over land and sea, and of terrifying weapons that were like lightning, and they will recount that the gods promised to return. They will hammer and chisel in the rock pictures of what they had seen: shapeless giants with helmets and rods on their heads, carrying boxes in front of their chests; balls on which indefinable beings sit and ride through the air; staves from which rays are shot out as if from a sun..."

Von Daniken also says the odd appearance of some of the gods as depicted in various hieroglyphs (human-like creatures with falcon heads; lions with heads of bulls, etc) could be viewed as evidence of "aliens" conducting experiments of cloning and cross-mutating ancient people and animals. Some accept this as an alternative to the Biblical account of creation. It's uncertain how many believe such a theory, but approximately eighty percent of Americans alone believe in the possibility of extra-terrestrial life. Some, like the 39 members of the Heaven's Gate cult that committed suicide in Rancho Santa Fe, California, and who believed they were being summoned by a UFO trailing the Hale-Bopp Comet, subscribe to an eerie amalgam of mysticism and conventional religion.

One of the more disturbing aspects of the "beings who breach the gate", is "abduction", which continues to be reported around the world. This is visitations by small, typically Grey creatures, who supposedly pilot UFOs and conduct various experiments on unwilling abductees.

Such activity is seen as the malevolent relationship between certain humans and these "gods" of creation. Radical aspects of their procedures can include impregnating abductees and later removing hybrid embryos.

While much attention is given to interpreting Sumerian cuneiforms as evidence of this alien-human interaction, ancient Chinese folklore tells of visitation by beings from a distant land of "flying carts," the Drona Parva, a Sanskrit text, documented "dogfights" by gods in flying machines, and Daniken claims the Bible itself is the "greatest UFO book of all time!"

The "wheel" in Ezekiel 1:15; the "pillar of cloud" in Exodus 13:21-22; and Elijah's "chariot of fire" (2 Kgs 2:11), are all viewed as examples of earth visitation by ET.

Daniken is right: The Bible does tell of strange visitors

In Genesis 6:4 we read: 

"When mankind had spread all over the world, and girls were being born, some of the supernatural beings saw that these girls were beautiful, so they took the ones they liked....In those days, and even later, there were giants [nephelim] on the earth who were descendants of human women and the supernatural beings" (TEV). 

Regardless of one's interpretation of this particular verse, thousands of years ago heavenly beings visited the earth. They engaged in experiments resulting in a race of mutant offspring called nephilim. In the New Testament, Jesus Christ spoke of these days (of Noah) as being comparable to the time leading up to His return and of the end of the age. 

Are current "UFO" visitors the same as the beings of Noah's day? If so, what is this genetic tinkering about?

One theory says when the protoevangelium was given (the promise that the seed of the woman would produce a child who would crush the serpent's head) supernatural beings (aliens? fallen angels?) appeared from heaven and performed genetic alterations of human DNA to intercept, pollute, and cut off the birth line of the Messiah. Like Pharaoh destroyed the Hebrew children so that the deliverer might not be born. Like Herod sought baby Jesus in order to have Him killed. Like the dragon of Revelation 12 waits to destroy the seed of the woman as soon as it is born, Satan wanted to stop the promised seed before it could be sent by God.

Yet my friend I.D.E. Thomas, in his book, The Omega Conspiracy, says Satan had additional plans, too. Satan, as opposed to aliens, was trying to produce a race of mutant warriors to exterminate the Jewish race, and worse, to genetically alter creation from the image of God to one of Satan's own.

From Thomas's point of view, this explains why people like the Sumerians of Mesopotamia, whose legends preceded much Hebrew folklore, brought with them a pantheon of deities with subsequent religions adopting similar ideas of powerful beings--with names like "Zeus" and "Apollo,"--visiting the earth, marrying women, and fathering half-human children.


"They" were also called Watchers

The Ancient Astronaut theory and the teaching of theologians alike look to the prehistoric legend of The Watchers (mysterious beings who first appeared in the early cultures of the Middle East) to discuss the Anunnaki, Nephilim, and the creation of mutant DNA following earth visitation by "gods".

  • The Egyptians originally migrated from the biblical land of Shin'ar, which means the Land of the Watchers. The Egyptians called it Ta Neter—The Land of the Watchers "from which the gods came into Egypt."
  • In the Book of the Dead there are prayers for deliverance from the Watchers (Tchatcha, the princes of Osiris), who came from Ta-Ur, the "Far Away Land."
  • The Sumerian scribes referred to the watchers as Anunnaki, which, they said, "came from Nibiru" to judge/rule the inhabitants of the earth. Some interpret this Nibiru as "a distant planet" while others say it should be translated, "Those Who from Heaven to Earth Came."
  • The Bible uses the words Anakim and Nephilm, which also means those who came from Heaven to Earth. 
  • In the Book of Jubilees—AKA the Apocalypse of Moses—the Watchers are compared to supernatural beings mentioned in the sixth chapter of Genesis. 
  • The Apocryphal Book of Enoch associates the creatures of Genesis 6 with the Watchers. We read:

And I Enoch was blessing the Lord of majesty and the King of the ages, and lo! the Watchers called me—Enoch the scribe—and said to me: 'Enoch, thou scribe of righteousness, go, declare to the Watchers of the heaven who have left the high heaven, the holy eternal place, and have defiled themselves with women, and have done as the children of earth do, and have taken unto themselves wives: "Ye have wrought great destruction on the earth: And ye shall have no peace nor forgiveness of sin: and inasmuch as they delight themselves in their children, The murder of their beloved ones shall they see, and over the destruction of their children shall they lament, and shall make supplication unto eternity, but mercy and peace shall ye not attain". (1 Enoch 10:3-8)

From the Dead Sea Scrolls we learn that only 200 of this larger group of powerful beings called "Watchers" departed from the higher Heavens and sinned. Thus Enoch refers to the Watchers in the High Heavens as separate from the ones on earth. The fallen class of Watchers are considered by some to be the same creatures who in the Book of Jude are called the "angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation...[and are] reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day" (Jude 6). 

Thomas describes recent "UFO" abduction activity as indicating a return of the servants of the Watchers, the lesser "angels" that followed the 200, as we approach the end of the age and the coming of Armageddon.

Do biblical and extra-biblical records support the Ancient Astronaut theory--that alien creatures traveled from distant planets or different dimensions and genetically tinkered with Homo sapiens? 

Were these flying geniuses afterward honored in the images and folklore of the gods of mythology? 

Or is Thomas correct in that Genesis and similar books are a record of fallen angels acting in accord with Satan?

We may find out sooner than we think. Unexplained phenomenon is going on all around us, and reports of "beings" transversing portals are coming in with astonishing frequency. Whoever... or whatever... they are, the reality of the activity can no longer be doubted.

In part three of this feature we shall catalogue those who have come through the stargates of the past, the present, and those powerful ones who are perched to do so in the very near future.
