The Account of Creation in the Bible is extended and brought to life in Sumerian cuneiform records translated by Zechariah Sitchin. It's echoed in the Urantia Book, the Oahspe, the Gospels of Barnabas, of the Holy Twelve, the Essene Gospels of Peace and the Book of Enoch.

NOBODY gets educated, nor can one resolve any discrepancies in the text by only reading one book. The Name of the Sovereign Creator God, YHVH, is articulated or implied in ALL these Books. His Story is the Story they tell. So read them all, and maybe you'll know something.

Interesting article. For another take on the apparent plurality see: http://thechronicleproject.org/PDF1/chroniclemaster.pdf Scroll down to page 17 to see a continuous paraphrased English version without the Hebrew.

Is there a possibility that we have only one creator but there are multiple gods?  I ask this because I keep mentally coming back to the phrases that describe God.  He is the light and the creator of life.  He also abolishes darkness as well as created the world and heavens.  I immediately think of one particular object that has done this locally, our Sun.  Our planet and heavens is the solar system, the light and life are obvious as we have come to understand that the sun touching the chemicals made life spark to...Life.  Is this the possible reality of a being made of pure energy, possesing a conciousness and an ability control everything in it’s solar mantle?  Then there is actually many Gods in existance, like the nucleus of thousands of solar systems.  Some of these solar systems have dual or even triple gods.  The loss of immortality is the hardest concept for most to swallow.  But I wonder if there is ever a concrete truth that a GOD must be immortal.

One point to bear in mind is that the Jewish 'Bible' was only written in its present form after The Return from Babylon in the the 5th century BC. It had several scribes/editors and numerous, (mainly oral) sources, including material from the Babylonian archives. Until exiled to Babylon the Jews, (although nominally monotheists), were mostly polytheists. (The Prophets were always ranting against this tendency). It should not be surprising, therefore, that polytheistic ideas occasionally appear in their Bible.

It goes on speak about the challenges and wonders of Columbus’s voyage to the new lands known today as the Caribbean. It even goes on to mention Columbus’s blunder in assuming that this newly discovered land was India when in fact it was what we know today as the Bahamas.

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.”).

During the Early Woodland Period (1000—200 BC), the Adena people constructed extensive burial mounds and earthworks throughout the Ohio Valley in Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Many of the skeletal remains found in these mounds by early antiquarians and 20th-Century archaeologists were of powerfully-built individuals reaching between 6.5 and eight feet in height (198 cm – 244 cm).

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.
