ISBN-10: 
1539103617

The hallmark of a healthy humanity is a genuine connection to the truth of our historical identity. History, simply put, is what happened. But how do we find our way to the origins of the human race thousands of years ago? We go back two and a half millennia to Greek artists who were closer to it, and whose marble sculptures and vase paintings bear a silent witness to the key characters and events described in the early chapters of the Book of Genesis, validating their reality. Here is some of what is revealed in this extraordinary book: *Zeus’ and Hera’s connection to the serpent-entwined apple tree. *Cain killing Abel depicted on the Parthenon. *Seth-men depicted as Centaurs who seize Cain-women as their wives. *The unique Greek depiction of Noah’s Flood. *The Cain-woman who survived the Flood as Ham’s wife. *The true landing site of Noah’s ark in the mountains of Ararat. *Naamah reconsecrates her grandson Nimrod to the way of Cain. *Nimrod/Herakles usurps the authority of Noah. *The Genesis serpent transfigured into Zeus. *The Altar of Zeus in Pergamum is the throne of Satan in the Book of Revelation. *The post-Flood Cainite onslaught against the line of Seth. *The true identity of the Amazons.

The calendar is one of mankind’s most important inventions. Calendars allowed societies to organize time for religious, social, economic, and administrative purposes. The calendar, or rather, two sets of calendars, were invented by the ancient Egyptians. One of these was a lunar calendar, which was used mainly for the organization of religious festivals.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
