Man-Made: The Chronicles of Our Extraterrestrial Gods
Some people equate mythology with fair tales. However, if we look at mythology as we look at history then we get a completely different perspective and understanding that opens new doors for comprehension of the world mythologies.
In this book, Dr Rita Louise presents the stories in mythologies and religions from all over the world, presenting the creation myth through the eyes of the Hindu, Sumerians, Mayans, Babylonians, Egyptians and many other civilizations. She presents how remarkably similar the stories are, something that cannot be explained since most of those civilizations were thousands of miles apart and with no apparent means of transport.
Dr Louise raises some important and intriguing questions: what if the stories told by our ancestors weren’t just fictions of their imaginations? What if they had something important to say that we now cannot understand and comprehend? We know that they had advanced astronomical knowledge, built great monuments with incredible architecture that even our architecture today cannot be compared with. Who gave them that knowledge and how did those evolutionary steps happen in such a sudden way?
The book is packed with information but yet is easy to read. You will learn about the myths of creation and ‘the great flood’ through an exploration of many different myths and religions. Furthermore, Dr Louise presents the theories on human evolution and how many questions still puzzle archaeologists and biologists.
It is another highly recommended book that will give you a fresh new perspective to see things out of the box.
