The Tower of Babel, NASA, UFO Connection
An academic circumspection
David Freed MLS(ASCP)cm February 1st, 2011
The Tower of Babel is just one of those Bible stories that just doesn't get much attention. After the flood, off in the middle of nowhere, and easy to skip over on scriptures way to Abraham and humanity.The story also raises questions from mainstream mythology (theology) instead of offering easy answers. Therefore, it has been downplayed and turned into evidence that humanity was bad somehow.
Leave the mythology out of it. The Fluid Dynamics of Whole Earth Decompression Theory (FD-WEDT)1 has already suggested a correlation between the physical science of planetary decompression and a global flood. Scientific support for a global flood invites a look at scripture. The revelation is that these two very different sources are not in conflict.
Does that mean they agree? Well yes, they do agree very much indeed. Does this mean they validate one another? The answer is dependent on the reader. However, if these were two different science theories, scientist would not hesitate to make the correlation!
Adding the literal scriptural description of the prediluvian population and culture to the data set, along side the Planetoid Pangea Biosphere Model suggest a very diverse population: Dinosaurs, Beasts, fire breathing Dragons (Leviathans), the lineage of Adam, Fallen Angels, Nephilim, gods, ½ breed humanoid offspring, creatures of mutation and manipulation, giants, science and war.
The Nephilim are discussed at length in the Book of Enoch. They are not from earth. They are from someplace else. They are Alien to earth. They are extraterrestrial. They taught forbidden magic to humanity, complete with spells and potions. They taught humanity the science of war.2
This prediluvian culture was not a bunch of ignorant nomads wandering the desert. Look at one of the few Biblical survivors of the global flood. Noah was around 600 years old when he built the Ark. How could anyone live that long and not learn a thing-or-two over the years. The Ark itself had to be technological marvel. Not only did the Ark act like a giant lifeboat, but along side an expanding earth theory through decompression; it also had to serve as a giant decompression chamber for the occupants.
The Bible says that Noah and family were the only survivors of the global flood. Let's be literal and explore this assumption. These were not just eight random people. This was the complete engineering staff that just successfully sailed the Ark through a catastrophic earth-changing event of gas giant proportions, an achievement not unlike landing a man on the moon. They were engineers and craftsmen of the highest order. Mankind did not start over in ignorance. There is no logical reason to continue to buy into the image from religious mythology. These were not simple nomads with nothing more than a camel and a goat.
We are postdiluvian men and look at what we have accomplished. We have been to the moon several times. We have remotely viewed many of our neighboring planets. Global powers argue over nuclear weapons. Yet, the technological advancements that define who we are today have only realistically been developed over the past 200 years or so.
My parents were born in 1908 and 1912. They were born into a culture powered by coal. Transportation revolved around a horse and buggy. Outhouses were used by day and chamber pots throughout the night. By the time of their deaths in 1997 and 2007, nuclear energy powered the electronic age and footprints on the moon were old news.
Noah and family began their rebuilding of the world from a position of strength. In just a few hundred years, the tribe of Noah organized themselves into a kingdom ruled by Nimrod. This nation of one language, under unified rule, worked together on a giant project. They built a city! They built a city with a tower that would reach to the heavens.
Gen 6 The Nephilim come to earth and corrupt the place to the point that God sent the flood to put an end to it and God tells Noah how to build the Ark.
Gen 7:11 " In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month – on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, (then) ... the floodgates of heaven were opened." NIV3
Gen 8 The floodwaters recede and the Ark runs aground.
Gen 9 God made his covenant with Noah and the lineage of Noah's sons begin, the Japhethites, the Hamites, and the Semites
Gen 10:32 "These are the clans of Noah's sons. According to their lines of decent, within their nations. From these nations spread out over the earth after the flood."
Gen 11:1 "Now the whole world had one language and a common speech."
Gen 11:2 "As men moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar, and settled there."
Gen 11:3 "They said to each other, 'Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.' They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar."
Gen 11:4 "Then they said, 'Come let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth." NIV
- Preachers sure make a lot of this last passage:
- 1. "...not be scattered over the face of the whole earth." That's a violation of God's command. Those bad and disobedient guys!
- 2. "... so that we may make a name for ourselves ..." How arrogant!
- 3. "... let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens ..."
The corruption of religious mythology force img of a tall brick tower into my head. This image cannot be anywhere close to the reality.
Again, lets disregard the mythology and just look at the vocabulary. For example: If they were building a tower into heaven, why did they choose the plain of Shinar. It would have made more sense to build the tower from the highest peaks.
What would have been the real lesson learned from building a tower to reach into heaven. How long would it have taken for anyone to realize that it cannot be done. The higher they built it the less air they would find and eventually empty space. No matter how high they built it they would never reach their objective. In fact, sooner or later, the tower would collapse under its own weight.
Gen 11:5 "But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building."
Gen 11:6 "The Lord said, "If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will become impossible for them." NIV
What a compliment!
Does God's comment correlate with the building of
a brick tower? - NO!
On the contrary, God's compliment more suggests that man is on the right track of discovery. 'Doing anything they put their mind to' has a much bigger implication than the folly of building a brick tower. Keep in mind that just a few generations earlier, the patriarch of these clans of the sons of Noah built the Ark, an accomplishment not unlike landing a man on the moon. God's compliment suggests these people were building something more along the line of a scientific research complex, how else would they accomplish anything they choose. Isn't that how we do the things we do as modern man?
The mythology wants to convince us that those bad and disobedient guys violated God's command and choose to "...not be scattered over the face of the whole earth." However, scripture already seemed to answer God's command at the end of Gen 10 with "... these nations spread out over the earth after the flood." Is the mythology suggesting that all these nations were to return to one central city in arrogant disobedience to God?
Ponder, what if choosing to be: "...not be scattered over the face of the whole earth." Represents something much grander in scope. What if they were choosing to not only '... scattered over the face of the whole earth." Or not just "...scattered over the face of the whole earth." What if these people of Babel choose to go into space? Wasn't that where the brick tower was headed?
The mythology also tries to convince us that those bad and disobedient guys broke some code of arrogance because they wanted to "make a name for" themselves. How arrogant! Isn't that the goal of humanity today? "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." "To boldly go, where no man has gone before." Isn't it the logical result of '... nothing they plan to do will become impossible for them?'
Reaching to the Heavens
Religious mythology gives us the impression that its message should be spread everywhere. Evangelist and missionaries have scowered this globe looking to spread the word. When given a chance, humanity has already proven its ability to reach for space in just one or two hundred years of organized effort. If left unchecked, Babel might have become our very first spaceport and humanity could be praising the Lord's name from multiple planets by now. But that is not what happened.
Gen 11:7 "Come let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other."
Gen 11:8 "So the Lord scattered them there all over the earth, and they stopped building the city." NIV
Lets see '... nothing they plan to do will become impossible for them?' = stop it!
How does religious mythology explain away this attitude. Man is not allowed to live up to his maximum potential. Nobody preaches this concept on Sunday mornings. So man was not allowed to work together for the common goal of reaching for their maximum potential. Man was prevented from reaching for the heavens. Instead humanity was quagmired to the long social slow play of religious intrigue that gave rise to the global culture that culminates in current events.
Microwave telecommunications dominate our globe. Genetic genome mapping and cloning techniques push ethical boundaries. Both geophysics and string theory physics are rediscovering the literal accuracy of scripture. The science of war finally gave rise to the rocket and humanity again is reaching for the heavens. Satellites have probed and photograhed most of our known solar system. We have left footprints on the moon more than once. It almost seems like nothing we plan to do will become impossible for us.
Again, the global culture is trending toward globalism and one world government. Religious mythology has primed the populations for another Godly intervention. Jew, Christian, and Islam are all manipulating the global culture toward Armageddon and a cataclysmic social readjustment. All that is missins is a city size research complex at the base of a space elevator. A 23,000-mile tall space elevator reaching from the planets surface to its counterbalance anchored in geo-synchronal orbit. Our very own tower to the heavens.
The boundary of space
We are fortunate today with our open access to free information. Scientific data and crackpot editorial are equally available in cyberspace. Never before has the individual had so much access to the big picture. Scientific debate, scriptural studies, archeological evidence, astrophysical imaging, ancient writings, and commentary from a wide range of religious zeal are all available to the interested.
As a species, we are reaching for the heavens. I wonder what my parents thought when the Russians put Sputnik in orbit back in 1958. Less than sixty years later we have access to hours and hours of orbital imagery from several space agencies. We have also grown up in the generation of 'War of the Worlds,' NASA, Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, and the whole UFO / Alien controversy, interesting era of informational awareness.
Look it up on the Internet. There are thousands of examples of astronauts filming, discussing, and documenting alien spacecraft. Spherical objects that fly in and above electrical storms and buzz spacecraft. Other objects tumbled as they tagged along with Apollo 11 to the moon. Some stories have both Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin seeing and filming two very large, very menacing, UFOs watching our astronauts from across a crater. Some stories say we were told not to come back to the moon; and you have to admit that NASA has almost forgotten how to get into orbit let alone going back to the moon.
Not only does the cumulative evidence from space science support the reality of the UFO phenomena, but it also suggest the possibility that some of these strange space objects may actually be life forms themselves. So, not only are we not alone, our space neighbors may be more diverse than ever imagined.
The Biblical Prediluvian Connection
Ponder, what if the Tower of Babel reached the heavens, just as we have today, wouldn't they have seen the same evidence? Wouldn't they have pondered the same questions? Perhaps, because they were so closely linked to the prediluvian era they knew full well what they would find. Remember literal scripture? The Nephilim are not from earth. They are from someplace else. They are Alien to earth. They had science.
Consider the very beginning of the literal Bible Story as presented in the Judeo-Christian heritage. After Eve ate of the fruit, God cursed the serpent by saying,
Gen 3:15 "... I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her's..." NIV
God's curse speaks very specifically about Satan's offspring, or as the King Jamers prefer, Satan's Seed, as well as Eve's. The seed of Eve seems obvious as humanity and through history the total number of prodigy must easily count in the many billions. There are more than six billion of us alive today. However, in all of my years associated with the local Church, we just never bothered with Satan's lineage. Ponder, for a moment, if they could also exist in large numbers.
In another paper of this series, Our Multidimensional Reality, Enoch, Science, and the Holy Trinity, you will see the story of Enoch's journey through the ten levels of heaven to eventually meet with the face of God. In most of the different heavens, he was able to look around and record what he saw. One of the heavens was pretty nice, but most were filled with a multitude of beings, guilty of becoming corrupt and Arrogant in their attitude and worship toward God, in chains or dungeons, or as waiting armies and choirs of host. The point is that he recorded a multitude of beings!
Being extraterrestrial simply means that you did not come from earth. So, I argue that by definition, Satan and his fellow angelic beings, can only interact in our reality physically as forms that are both exterritorial and Alien to us. Consider the following scripture about the realm of Satan, and his followers, from the Old Testament Book of Ezekiel.
EXK 28:14 "... You were on the Holy mount of God; you walked among the firey stones."
EZK 28:16 "... you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the firey stones."
EZK 28:17 "Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; ..." NIV
What rationalities can our cultural knowledge base do with this interesting realm of Firey Stones. The easiest leap, for my cultural perspective of the universe is to the realm of stars and space. We all think that there must be some form of alien life waiting to be discovered in the realm of space. Perhaps we have biblical evidence that this may be more true than imagined. Are not the inhabitants of space extraterrestrial?
But what about after the flood
The Biblical Flood of Noah was supposed to eliminate these Fallen Angels and their prodigy from the earth. However, winged serpents attacked the Israelites with Moses in the wilderness. During the time of Joshua, the land of Canaan was still populated by giants, and as a boy, King David slew the Giant of the Philistines'. Much support circulates the web that these giants are evidence of continued involvement by the Nephilim, or at least, their prodigy.
Gen 6:4 "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days - and also afterward ..." Does the phrase - and also afterward - open the door to continued post flood Nephilim involvement with mankind? Judeo-Christian heritage is complete with the history of the struggle between the demonic realm of Satan's seed and man. Could the many demons and evil spirits identified by the Vatican just be evidence of continued presence by the Nephilim and their prodigy? The guarded and secrete archives of the Vatican must be full of ancient documents supplementary to the Scriptures. Catholic cosmology of the spiritual realm is complete with names and descriptions of all kinds of angelic and demonic beings. Even, Jewish history wouldn't be complete without the cosmology offered from the Mid-Rash, as defined as the many volumes of ancient Hebrew writings other than Scripture.
In the Book of Enoch, it describes that God had sent a legion of angels to earth, to watch over and assist man during the beginning of civilization. However, these angles become corrupt and begin to interfere with man. Now fallen, theses angles begin to set themselves up in authority over man.
I Enoch 6:1 "And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters."
I Enoch 6:2 "And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come let us choose us wives from among the children of men and get us children.'"
I Enoch 6:3 "And Selma, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.'"
I Enoch 6:4 "And they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.'"
I Enoch 6:6 "And they were in all two hundred ..."
I Enoch 7:1 "And all together with them took themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go unto them and to defile themselves with them, and they taught them charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made then acquainted with plants."
They went on to teach men to make weapons and armor, and also arts and sciences. These beings taught man, forbidden sciences and knowledge about magic, reading the stars, divination and sorcery. These acts led to an increase in lawlessness and warfare.
2 Enoch 18:3-4 Speaks of the Army of Grigori, who with their Prince Satanail fathered giants with mortal women.
In the book, The Secrets of Enoch, Enoch writes that an angel took him into the "... fifth heaven and placed me there, and there I saw many and countless solders, called the Grigori, of human appearance..." The Grigori, an army of Watchers, appear human. They look like us! They must look like us, at least enough, to father children with our women.
"For it was on account of these three things (fornication, uncleanness, and injustice) that the flood was on the earth, since due to fornication that the Watchers had illicit intercourse - apart from their mandate of their authority - with women. They Fathered Nephilim as sons... Jubilees 7:20-22"
The flood was sent to remove the fallen angels and their corporeal seed - Nephilim, Watchers and Grigori solders, but there may be documented evidence that not all of them are gone. Ancient Jewish fairy-tales speaks of a Nephilim that survived the flood by hanging onto the outside of the ark. In the Book of Jubilees, as God commanded the angels to bind all evil spirits, the chief of the evil spirits came and asked the Lord:
" ... 'Lord creator, leave some of them before me; let them listen to me and do everything that I tell them, because if none of them is left for me I shall not be able to exorcizes the authority of my will among mankind. For they are meant for the destroying and misleading before my punishment because the evil of mankind is great.' Then God said that a tenth of them should be left before him, while He would make nine parts descend to the place of judgment. - Jubilees 10:8-9"4
Gen 6:4 "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days - and also afterward ..."
Nephilim beings are watching us and are actually waging a cold war between man and our spiritual connection. Physical creatures that look like us that monitor us and do whatever the leader of the evil spirits tells them.
The Old Testament has many stories of giants; land of giants, battles with giants, and some of these giants had six fingers and toes. Other stories tell of demons and lesser gods.
Early Christian Writings
In Gnostic beliefs, Archons are planetary rulers and guardians of the spiritual planes. The Archons were associated with the planets of our solar system, or more precisely - the visible seven planets. The common language of the time was Greek. In Greek, Archon means authority and comes from the same root as archangel. They are presented as predatory beings who inhibit spiritual awakening by convincing humanity of a false reality, they are the forces of sin, fear, and temptation.5
"The Archons cast a trance over Adam which caused him to be sleepy, but it was his perception they dulled ... They make our hearts heavy that we may not pay attention and may not see. So we loose the reflection of the Divine Light within us ... The Archons burden the soul, attracting us to works of evil, and pull us down into oblivion, make us forget who we are.6
The Second Treatise of the Great Seth, another text of gnostic origin, "... explains how the Archons induce a false plan of salvation into the human mind, a counterfeit of the true plan of self-liberation we can take by developing our innate potential of Nous, 'divine-intelligence.'" the script goes on to say, "... that 'the doctrine of Aliens' is a great deception upon the human soul."7
The Hypostasis of the Archons tells us that it was the Archons that fell and fathered children with mankind. They are the Nephilim and WATCHERS, and therefore - according to Zecharia Sitchin8 - the Anunnaki of Sumer. They were there when Eve was created and when Cain killed Able. This text also states very clearly that the Archons are the 'authorities of darkness' as told of in Colossians 1:13 and 'the spirits of wickedness' from Paul's letter to the Ephesians; "... our struggle is not against flesh and blood - as he says in (Ep 6:12) - but against the world rulers of this darkness and the spirits of wickedness(Archons)."9
The Tower of Babel, NASA, UFO Connection
What is the real problem with full disclosure? So what if there are space people? Except to destroy the grip of religious mythology. Over and over, I have heard people say, 'if we found life in space, the religious fundamentalist would have to all readdress their theologies.' – Why?
I think I have presented only the most literal version of scripture. Read it for yourself. Scripture and related ancient writings all suggest a more complex extraterrestrial reality that today's UFO conspiracy theory. Perhaps that is the real secret! The global culture is fully prepared for the reality of extraterrestrial life and the catastrophic social change it would cause. However, I doubt that the ringleaders of religious mythologies are prepared for the full disclosure that literal scripture requires.
What seems to be the real difference, between these postdiluvian men of Genesis 11 and the postdiluvuan men of today, is a matter of time. The clans of Noah reached for the heavens just a few hundred years after the global flood. We, on the other hand, are the product of centuries of religious intrigue and cultural manipulation generated from the long slow play human culture as limited solely to the surface of the earth. A perspective so narrow that at one time we thought that our flat little world was at the heart of the very universe itself. Yet today, both science and scripture suggest we are just a small part of a much bigger reality, which may or may not, be a lot more scripturally literal than we ever imagined.
