There are two groups of theories regarding ancient aliens: Annunaki theories; and Reptilian theories. Both types of theories claim the human race did not evolve through Darwinian processes, but had extraterrestrial origins; and both types of theories claim our real history was like the movie/tv series Stargate: with extraterrestrials guiding the development of our society, sharing their technology with us, and playing the role of gods.
The Annunaki and Reptilian theories differ on who these “gods” were. The Reptilians are thought to resemble the lizard-people from the tv series V, except they never bothered to disguise themselves as humans. The Annunaki are thought to be more human-looking, except that they were 12-15 feet tall (twice as tall as a tall human). Those who subscribe to the Reptilian theory (that the Reptilians were the “gods”), believe the Annunaki were Reptilians.
This is not my view. I believe the Annunaki and the Reptilians were two distinct races, and both played a significant role in shaping human history/development. The majority of researchers believe the Annunaki were the “gods”, and I lean towards this view myself, but I’m not 100% convinced it wasn’t the Reptilians. The problem is that the evidence, and the historical records, that survive from those times (around 12,000 years ago) is fragmentary, and can be interpreted in many different ways: like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that can fit together in many combinations to form many different pictures.
The main difference between the Reptilian and Annunaki theories, is in where they say the human race came from. The Reptilian theory posits that humans originated in the Lyran star system, that they had a war with the Reptilians millennia ago, and that they came to Earth as refugees from that war. But the Reptilians followed them to Earth, and the war continued here. Ultimately, the war climaxed in an exchange of nuclear weapons: many scholars believe the biblical account of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah is based on a real historical account of how those cities were destroyed by nuclear fire. The war finally came to an end when the Reptilians and the Lyran humans agreed that neither species would rule the Earth: the Earth would instead be ruled by a hybrid of both species. So Reptilian genes and human genes were spliced together to create this hybrid, and that’s us – modern humans.
The Annunaki theory tells a different story. The Annunaki came to Earth to mine for minerals, primarily gold, on which most of their technology was based, and which was in short supply on their home planet Nibiru. Nibiru passes close to Earth every 36,000 years – the rest of the time, its highly elliptical orbit carries it well outside our solar system. It was during one of these 36,000 year “fly-bys” the Annunaki came to Earth to mine for gold. But the mining was hard work, and after a few thousand years, the Annunaki tired of it, and started looking for a convenient source of slave labour. Their solution was to take the most highly evolved primate species on the Earth at the time, and graft their own genes on to it. The result was the first humans, who resembled the Annunaki (but were much shorter) because they were “created in God’s image” as the bible says. Some scholars believe the original text of the bible says humans were created in “the gods’ image” meaning gods plural, which would be more historically accurate, given there were many Annunaki. Over time, the Annunaki inter-bred with their creations (our ancestors), so that they came to resemble Annunaki more and more, and the apes they had evolved from, less and less. When the Bible says “There were giants in the Earth, in those days”, it is referring to the Annunaki, and their offspring.
The Annunaki became divided into two factions: those that wanted to share their technology with humans; and those that wanted to keep it to themselves. For Annunaki theorists, the nuclear war that destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah was between these opposing Annunaki factions. Soon after this war, Nibiru was due to pass close to Earth again… which would have devastating effects for anyone left on Earth’s surface. The anti-human Annunaki faction, led by Enlil, wanted to save only themselves, and leave the humans to die, but the pro-human faction, led by Enki, thought the humans should be saved. Enki gave Noah instructions to build an Ark, in which he and his family could survive the coming Flood.
As Nibiru passed by the Earth, its gravity caused one of the polar ice caps (I forget which one) to slide off and fall into the ocean, causing a flood so massive that every civilisation that existed at the time now has a flood myth (the one in the Bible is hardly unique).
For a few years or decades after this (accounts are vague on this point) the Annunaki returned to Earth, and helped the humans rebuild. But they didn’t linger long, because they wanted to go home to Nibiru, before its highly elliptical orbit carried it out of our solar system. The Annunaki left, and as humans bred with one another, the Annunaki genes became diluted, and our race became shorter in stature. For Annunaki purists, the story ends there.
But I’m not an Annunaki purist, and I believe our true history is likely some hybrid of the Annunaki and Reptilian theories, just as our species is a hybrid of Annunaki and Reptilian DNA. I believe that after the Annunaki created us, through genetic engineering and interbreeding, the Reptilians tampered with our DNA further, to make us more like them (the Reptilians). That is why we now have a reptilian brain and a mammalian brain, encased in our skulls. It is the conflict between these two brains that creates our dualistic nature: we get our spiritual, creative side from our Annunaki heritage, and our savage, destructive side from our Reptilian heritage.
That covers the theories. Now, on to the evidence.
The “smoking gun” that we are a genetically engineered species, is the staggering number of genetic defects we have. Whenever you genetically engineer an organism, you create genetic defects. Naturally occurring organisms have very few genetic defects… humans have over 4,000, and we are finding new ones every year. We have far, far more genetic defects than any other species on the planet. Darwin himself said that “we have all the earmarks of a domesticated animal.” Domesticated animals, such as cattle, poultry, and pets, are riddled with genetic defects, because humans have selectively bred them for hundreds of generations to get them in their current forms.
Also, there is only one chromosome of difference between us and chimpanzees. We have one less chromosome than they do, because chimpanzee chromosomes 2 and 3 have been fused together in us. There is no natural process that can cause chromosomes to fuse in this way: but it is a commn practice in genetic engineering.
Equally compelling evidence of genetic manipulation, comes in the form of a sudden increase in our brain size, which evolution cannot account for. Take a look at the final three steps in the currently accepted human evolutionary tree:
Homo sapiens (modern human) 200,000 YBP; Brain size: 1,450cm3
Homo heidelbergensis 600,000 YBP; Brain size: 1,348cm3
Homo habilis 2,500,000 YBP; Brain size: 700cm3
*YBP denotes Years Before Present
From this chart, we can see that the brain size of our ancestors nearly doubled from Homo habilis, to Homo heidelbergensis, but this increase of 648cm3 took 1.9 million years. Compared to that, the most recent increase: (from Homo heidelbergensis to us) of 102cm3 in just 400,000 years, is a massive “evolutionary leap” that is simply impossible according to Darwin’s theory.
In the wake of the Flood, human civilisation developed very rapidly: far more rapidly than it could have without outside help (from ETs). The established archaeological view is that the state of human civilisation before the Flood, was that of primitive hunter-gatherers, ignorant of agriculture and incapable of any architectural feats bigger than wigwams and bivouacs. Yet Egypt and Mesopotamia had miraculously developed mathematics, architecture, astronomy, law, philosophy, and medicine a few centuries later, with no visible forerunners.
Any apparently independent cultural stories about the origin of civilisations (including the Sumerians. Egyptians, and Hindus) report that basic scientific principles and whole fields of knowledge cam from non-human sources. These stories of technical assistance often attribute the basic concepts for civil institutions and social standards to ETs. This goes against our natural tendency as human beings (at least in today’s culture) to claim credit for any new idea that we (ourselves) come up with. So we have to ask, why would our ancestors give the credit for ideas and technologies that radically advanced civilisation, to ETs; unless ETs were in fact responsible? Here are a few examples (from a very long list) of ancient cultures, and things they gave ETs credit for:
- At the end of the last ice age, the Chippewa’s Manaboshu (a Noah-like personage) received instructions from an AB on how to make a good bow and arrow and how to work with copper.
- In Old Mexico, Zanna, who is believed to have led the ancestors of the Aztecs to Yucatan, was considered to be the “author of civilisation” and the source of their alphabet.
- The Algonquins consider a being named Gluskap, who did feats too amazing for a man to have done, to be their cultural founder.
- The Mayan’s ancestors reportedly received advanced ideas from Kukulcan, who arrived from he West and helped found a new culture.
- Quetzalcoatl, credited with having taught the Toltecs many important areas of knowledge, was deemed to have made the greatest contribution to the founding of their culture, including setting ceremonial calendars and religious practices.
Then there are the many hieroglyphs and petroglyphs created by the ancient Egyptians, Sumerians, and Mesopotamians, depicting such things as planes, helicopters, space rockets and satellites, thousands of years before we “invented” (it would be more accurate to say re-discovered) these technologies. Technologies that were depicted as being gifts from the “Gods” (in reality, ETs posing as gods).
All over the world, monuments built of massive blocks of stone, fitted together so precisely that you can’t fit a cigarette paper in between them, suggest a global civilisation that built cataclysm-proof structures (in the wake of the flood). What suggests an extraterrestrial influence, is that we could not build such monuments today, even with modern technology. For example, the Prime Meridian building (which we built with modern technology) is supposed to be perfectly oriented north, south, east and west, but it is 9/60ths of a degree off True North, compared to just 3/60ths of a degree off True North, for the Great Pyramid. Then, there is a huge complex of temples at Baalbek (in Lebanon). The platforms of these temples contain five million cubic feet of stone blocks, most of them weighing hundreds of tons, all of them perfectly square, with perfectly smooth sides (a feat difficult to duplicate with modern tools, and impossible with the hammers and chisels which were all the ancients supposedly possessed), and all of them fitted together so precisely you couldn’t fit a human hair in between them. Three of these stones – the Trilithons – weigh more than 1000 tons each, heavier than the biggest crane we have today can lift. Again, suggesting an extraterrestrial agency at work, is the remarkable similarity between these monuments, appearing all over the world, at the same time. There is a common influence that touched all of these places, long before recorded history began, a remote, 3rd party civilisation, unidentified by historians, that had a presence in Mexico, a presence in South America, a presence in Egypt, and elsewhere, and left behind a legacy of knowledge, in all of these places.
So, are Ancient Aliens real? It’s a “yes” from me.
I don’t know of any cool videos that support the theory that the Reptilians were the ancient aliens. For more on that, I recommend the book Alien World Order, by Len Kasten.
There are heaps of videos about the Annunaki and Nibiru on Youtube, but I reckon this one does the best job of summarising all the available theories/knowledge and presenting it in a scientific, believable fashion:
It starts off sounding like a lesson in ancient history, but it’s all relevant to the Professor’s argument that the Annunaki gave us advanced technology and genetically engineered us into existence hundreds of thousands of years ago… the really “juicy” stuff starts about halfway through.
For even more info on Annunaki theories, I recommend the following two books:
Jim Marrs - Our Occulted History: Do the Global Elite conceal Ancient Aliens?
Paul Von Ward - We’ve Never Been Alone: A History of Extraterrestrial Intervention.
The Jim Marrs book is the book to read if you want our entire extraterrestrial history from past to present in a nutshell, that’s easy to read. But it leaves out a lot of important details/theories/possibilities, and lacks scientific rigour.
The Von Ward book takes a much more scientific approach, and is much more comprehensive. But it is also much harder to read. I had to read it very slowly, because my head kept trying to explode from all the information packed into the book. This is the book to read if you’re skeptical about Ancient Aliens, because Von Ward’s thorough, scientific examination of all the evidence and theories about Ancient Aliens (except the Reptilian ones), will convince any but the most narrow-minded, that Ancient Aliens are real.
