Not really. But if I had to

Not really. But if I had to choose it most likely be the Creation Myths of other Ancient Civilizations.

Favorite Sacred Stories

Those stories that are generally called “myths” today are actually the sacred stories of ancient cultures, and like all sacred stories they are not meant to be literally true, but they are meant to teach something that is eternally true. The very fact that we still remember these tales attests to that fact. 

My favorite sacred stories are those that involve gods enduring rites of passage: Cronus consuming his children and how they triumph, Innana’s decent into the underworld, Heracles’ Twelve Labors, the story of the Egyptian trinity of Isis, Osirus, and Horus, Odin hanging from the World Tree to obtain the wisdom and insight to be worthy to be king of gods and man, and the list goes on.

If that which you seek you find not within yourself, you will never find it without.

 

 

Human Origins

In a previous 2-part article (1), the authors wrote about the faulty associations of the Sumerian deities known as the Anunnaki as they are portrayed in the books, television series, and other media, which promotes Ancient Astronaut Theory (hereafter “A.A.T.”).

Ancient Technology

Imagine a glass you can bend and then watch it return to its original form. A glass that you drop but it doesn’t break. Stories say that an ancient Roman glassmaker had the technology to create a flexible glass, ‘vitrium flexile’, but a certain emperor decided the invention should not be.

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.
