We must, however, acknowledge, as it seems to me, that man with all his noble qualities… still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin – Charles Darwin
From the moment we are born we are taught that there is a society, and it is a linear evolution society, from primitive groups of primates, to nomadic hunter-gatherers, to city-dwellers with domesticated animals and agricultural techniques. There is always a pattern that we must obey and follow; we must follow as this means being part of the society.
Charles Darwin was integral to this current mainstream belief system – his 1859 work “The Origin of Species” was nothing less than a revolution of scientific thought, pushing back and ultimately eclipsing the previously-held notions of creationism, and helped cement the concept of linear evolution. This is clearly an indication of just how powerful and how far ahead his work was. 150+ years later, hard evidence which has come to light within the past 20-30 years has not yet managed to gain the acceptance of the majority of researchers, evidence such as listed below;
— Central American Olmec figures, dates back way over 3000 years, and it is inscribed with what was verified in 1996 to be archaic Chinese Characters.
— Proven knowledge of such relatively modern discoveries as the 9 planets of this system and Jupiter’s 4 largest moons, by the Ancient Sumerians, information which wasn’t known in modern times until the advent use of the telescope.
— Amazingly old physical constructs which demonstrate a highly advanced architectural technique, not matched until the Middle Ages.
— Heavy water erosion on the famous Sphinx, Great Pyramid, & Oseirion, that could only have taken place no later than approx. 6500-7000 years ago, when heavy rain was common in the area, obviating a much older date for their construction than the mainstream media accepts.
— Old detailed maps dating well over hundreds of years ago, said to have been created by using much older maps as a reference, showing the coastlines of South America and an ice-free Antarctica (the latest the coast of Antarctica was in an ice-free state was approx. 4000 BC).
— A Battery which can produce half a volt of electricity discovered in Iraq in 1938 and dated to 248-226 BC (as well as copper vases electroplated with silver, dated to 2500 BC).

The above are just a few of the so many ancient mysteries that our amazing planet holds. The obvious question would be, is it possible to find an explanation to them, to find the connection between each other, or are they forever to remain elusive in the mists of time?
The Ancient Myths
Our planet holds many secrets, various amounts of ancient myths and legends from cultures long since disappeared from the history of Earth. Many are culture-specific, only to appear in local or regional areas. But, there are a fair amount of myths that are able to “span the spectrum” so to speak, they are in the tradition of virtually every major culture in history.
One of these ancient common myths is “The Fall” of humanity, from some high position to a lower one. To give an example; the Christian tradition tells of people living in a virtual paradise, who were “Cast Down” when they attempted to gain the secret knowledge of their god. This is but one example; similar myths that also appear in the cultures of ancient Greece, Akkadia, Canaan and the Sumerians. This is all evidence in the ancient oral traditions of a time when humanity enjoyed a state of relative technological advancement, exploring and mapping the globe as well as studying scientific principles we consider modern – among them cosmology, medical science, and architecture – only to then suffer some catastrophe (the infamous “The Fall”) resulting in the loss of most of that information, which remained lost until advances made in the Middle Ages.
So what was “The Fall”? Most stories tell that humanity “fell out of grace with the gods” for attempting to learn that which their gods knew – “eating fruit from the Tree of Knowledge“. Since these early humans obviously already knew such things as cosmology, astronomy, medicine, geography, etc., what could the “knowledge of the gods” be?
The Secret Knowledge Of The Gods
Modern day researchers are still studying ancient texts as the Dead Sea Scrolls, Old Testament, Cabala, among many more, it is, believed that at the earliest points of religious development, it was a physical, flesh-and-blood person that was worshipped, and that gradually over time this evolved to the concept of a god or gods separate from the physical realm (one can see the basic outline of this evolution of concepts by noting that the earliest groups worshipped physical personas, then later the Greeks and Romans worshipped gods which were both flesh-and-blood as well as “godly”, and during the present time the main gods are considered fully separate from the physical realm, as in the Christian God). Obviously at this point in our understanding we cannot say for certain what this forbidden knowledge was, but from the information presented so far, coupled with what we know of these ancient civilizations, we can draw some general guidelines:
— The “The Secret Knowledge” was something we did not develop on our own, and which the “gods” possessed.
— It was something which we were able to attain or learn.
— It was something which the “gods” did not want us to know.
This may not be a lot to go on, but we can make some educated guesses. The fact that the gods did not want these early humans to have this information connotes that it was something potentially damaging to them, perhaps knowledge of who they really were (or were not), or knowledge which would serve to put humanity on an equal footing with them. Either way, this further connotes that the “gods” were in fact not gods at all, but rather flesh-and-blood beings that possessed advanced knowledge or technology. Supporting this claim is the presence of ancient carvings and pictures of what appear to be flying objects of a technological nature, located high on the wall of the Temple of Seti I in Abydos, Egypt, as well as other related pictures scattered throughout various ancient sites. Previously the presences of these images were attributed to the stylized imaginings of “primitive cultures”.

A Fake Society
Adding to the puzzle is the fact that both the Egyptian and Sumerian cultures seemed to appear out of nowhere, fully equipped with their advanced knowledge and already at the height of their civilization. In the case of Sumer, there were groups of Akkadians and the ancestors of present-day Bedouins surrounding the area in which they appeared; all seem to be culturally unrelated to the Sumerians. In the case of Egypt, it is the oldest structures – the Sphinx, the Great Pyramid, etc. – which are of the highest architectural quality and the most well preserved. Later-built pyramids are of lesser quality, and in fact some have literally collapsed due to poor design.
This knowledge denotes that the more ancient Egyptians possessed a higher quality of knowledge than their descendants – a key sign of technology inherited from another culture and not developed by one’s own, as knowledge of how to use the obtained information would have been lost through the generations; the more advanced cultures were the earliest (in fact both the Egyptians and Sumerians believed civilized humans had existed on this planet for over 500,000+ years). It has been established that in ancient Sumeria, a sudden storm of scientific achievements burst upon the scene in a very short period of time – the wheel, written language, a sophisticated calendar, music and song, map making, a standard exchange system, among others. Laurence Gardner, in his work Genesis of the Grail Kings, writes:
“To this day, everyone concerned is baffled by the sudden, extraordinary emergence of the Sumerians, seemingly from nowhere. But there is no doubt that, upon their advent in southern Mesopotamia, they were already highly advanced, to a level far beyond that recorded or sustained in any place from where logically they could have emanated. Nowhere on Earth was there a culture like that of the Sumerians, who appeared soon after 4000 BC.”
Where Does This Journey Continue To?
Despite the presence of physical evidence contradicting elements of the popular conception of the evolution of human culture, the scientific body has for the most part ignored the claims of those who argue we once enjoyed a higher standard of living than the history books depict. Slowly however, the idea is leaking into the mainstream, as more evidence becomes uncovered and is discussed. After all, someone drew the maps from which Admiral Piri Reis and others claimed to have used as source material – someone with an advanced knowledge of geography and who travelled the world’s oceans.
When you connect the dots you can see that someone knew enough about physical and electrical principles to construct working batteries over 2000-2500 years ago and to perform electroplating over 5000 years ago. Just think of the wealth of information on our remote prehistory we would have today, had not the old libraries of Memphis, Alexandria, and Asia Minor been destroyed by invaders or religious groups fearful of the knowledge they contained. And even more evidence is lying undiscovered, hidden under desert sands or buried in museum basements.
So when will the “big discovery” be made which will make the mainstream media community sit up and take notice? Maybe it has already been made. Maybe it has been right in front of us all this time.
