11 In conclusion...

11 In conclusion... Initially, we have formulated the hypothesis that in our past there has been contact with extraterrestrial civilizations, and later we have asked: Is there an opportunity to learn more? Can we give substance to the hypothesis? Have we obtained any evidence? But, above all, we wondered whether the most important sacred text of the Western religion had recorded any knowledge and memory of such events! During our discussion we have seen how the Roman Church has been forced to admit that the Bible has records of such reality, whose story turns out to be substantially equivalent to the Sumerian's when they describe the Anunnaki and their flying machines. We have pointed out the concreteness characterizing the detailed descriptions of events, timings and geographical locations of the stories. Our objection to the traditional interpretation is that it is much more likely that whomever wrote the sacred texts on paper has transposed the story of real physical phenomena which hundreds and maybe thousands of people had repeatedly witnessed. This Phenomena was recorded by way of memory which must have been handed down over time in its substantial aspects, but with all the variations that oral transmission inevitably produces. Also recorded is the concreteness that has drawn the authors of the Old Testament to admit the unthinkable, namely that GOD DIES, like all other men. We examined a number of concepts that tradition has interpreted and reworked in the light of the monotheistic dogma: The Ten Commandments, the blessing, the glory of God, the angels, and the prophets' visions. 182

Finally, we have realized that even the most “mystical” of the inspired texts contain origins of very human situations that are motivated by personal, social, cultural and historical heritage. This is also the reason why doctrines and interpretations of religious tradition do not necessarily always lead to fixable contradictions, and theological issues that are being debated for centuries with no universally accepted solutions are proof of this. Everything contained in these texts becomes understandable if we simply look at the Bible as one of the many works of man, which are inevitably full of contradictions and uncertainties. Once you accept that the so-called Sacred Texts are but works written by men, with all the limits due to human imperfection; there is no point to introduce the concepts of mystery, or of the hidden God who does not want to reveal totally, to avoid trampling on men's free choice. When there is a linear and comprehensible explanation of an event, it is absolutely useless - and in this case also absurd and overwhelming - to introduce misleading motivations. A simple reading guided by rules of common sense and rationality would be sufficient. Don't they say that reason is the highest gift God has granted men in order to search, know and follow him? We have tried to use it here. The Memory of Superior Beings All possible questions fall away if only we accept that religions were created as an attempt to rebuild, reinvent, try to contact with those superior beings considered “divine” because of their peerless supremacy in terms of knowledge, ability and power. These were: Individuals who lived so long that they were regarded as immortal; Individuals who knew the secrets of nature and the cosmos, and transmitted those secrets only to their faithful followers, thereby starting the “initiated” caste of kings, rulers, and priests; Individuals who could travel through the sky, covering unimaginable distances in such a short time as to be unconceivable for those who only 183
