Many ancient legends say that humans come from the stars, and it’s no secret that ancient humans knew much about the stars and placed great emphasis on them, even building massive monuments aligned with or replicating stars. Is it possible that ancient humans were not as ‘backward’ as history would like us to believe, and that humanity’s origins were not a mystery to them as it is to modern humans?
Did ancient astronomers know what modern astronomers now believe – that our solar system was formed in the Orion constellation? Did they thus also believe that humans, too, originated from this constellation? Many did, some believing that the gods came to Earth from Orion and created humans, and some saying that they then cross-bred with humans, thereby aiding in our evolution.
The Christian Bible seems to corroborate the latter, saying in Genesis: “There were giants on the Earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came unto the daughters of men, and they bared children to them…”
It may seem fanciful to some, but… scientists now believe that humans were created, indirectly, from supernovas. Robert Kirshner, professor of astronomy at Harvard, says, “Generations of supernovas created the elements we take for granted – the oxygen we breathe, the calcium in our bones, and the iron in your blood are products of the stars.”
According to some, knowledge of our origins has been stored in ancient stone monuments to act as libraries for future generations, by storing the consciousness of our ancestors. These theorists further believe that human states of mind are affected by – or possibly even created by – the alignment of the stars.
Are ancient sites really star maps and libraries that can give us insight into our origins, and perhaps even the purpose of our existence? Are we star children only in the sense that we evolved from matter that originally came from the Orion constellation, or did aliens, in fact, create us for a purpose? If so, did our ancestors serve their purpose and, therefore, has our species been forgotten by its creators… or are we yet to discover our purpose? Perhaps it’s all a great hoax perpetrated by the Devil to move us further from one great creator of all. Only time will tell. What do you think? (Opposing theories and beliefs are welcome.)
