There are two basic forms of religion: individual experience, and savior-based. Individual experience based religions include Buddhism, Taoism, Zen, and a few others of similar structure. Savior-based religions include Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and a few others of similar structure. The real dividing line between the two forms is individual experience based religions focus on a transformation and empowerment of the individual, while savior-based religions focus on empowering the religious organization, often at the expense of the individual.
I am going to make another distinction between the two forms of religion based on their scriptures: either the scripture is about the transformation of the individual, or it is political in nature. Any scripture that contains violence, invasion of another’s land, killing other people, or taking the natural resources of another people is political in nature. Violence, war, invasion, and conquering others are political objectives, not spiritual goals. The Torah of Judaism, the Old Testament of Christianity, and the Quran of Islam are all political documents being passed off as religious scripture.
But this is what god wants is the argument. This is the way god is. This is where brutal honesty is required. The god of savior-based religions in every case is actually an extraterrestrial with a high degree of technology at their disposal. The so-called miracles involving god are the result of advanced technology, not supernatural abilities. The god of Judaism and the god of the Christian Old Testament is an Anunnaki by the name of Enlil. The Anunnaki left over 500,000 clay tablets behind in cuneiform writing. At least 20% of those clay tablets describe the relationship between the Anunnaki and people. By their own account the Anunnaki came from another planet, Nibiru, which makes them extraterrestrials by definition. Islam focused on a different Anunnaki, changing the name to Allah, but the end result is the same; god is an extraterrestrial. In Hinduism, more than one god is followed, some of which are Anunnaki, and some are of another extraterrestrial race.
But I don’t believe extraterrestrials exist, you might say. My suggestion is that you follow the evidence. Here are some books that can help you gather the evidence you need to make an informed decision:

These books are a good start on the subject.
The Roman emperor Constantine formalized the Christian documents that became the Bible into a political movement at the Council of Nicea in 327 AD. As a result, bishops in the new Christian Church were given essentially the same authority as judges in the Roman Empire. The early Christian Church was political in nature and was intended to unify the fractured Roman Empire.
There were two power centers at this time: Rome was the center of political power, and Alexandria, on the Mediterranean coast of Egypt, was the cultural and intellectual center. The library, attached to the temple of Serapis in Alexandria, housed tens of thousands of documents that recorded the accumulated knowledge and wisdom of mankind since before the Biblical flood. Gnosticism (direct knowledge of God) was deemed a heresy by the Christian Church and an aggressive program followed to rid the world of heretical documents. The final conflict between Rome and Alexandria came to a head in 391 AD, when Bishop Theophilus of Alexandria, under Roman Emperor Theodosius I, led an angry mob of Christians across the city to the Temple of Serapis, destroying the statues, tapestries, artwork and icons in the temple and then focusing their rage on the library in the main wing of the temple. In a day’s time the collected knowledge and wisdom of thousands of years was destroyed. This act of violence was purely political and had nothing to do with spirituality.
Even today, the Vatican remains a political entity while claiming to be a religion. Nothing has changed. The Christian religion was, and remains, a political organization. Keep in mind that words can be lies, but physical action is the real determining factor in evaluating the nature of a person or an organization. The violence and destruction during the Crusades and the 600 years of torture and violence of the Holy Inquisition are the defining physical acts of Christianity.
For several hundred years the Christian Church has reassured people that their documents, painstakingly copied by hand, were faithful reproductions of much older documents. The problem is that we have now recovered approximately 100,000 ancient documents in the form of clay tablets written in cuneiform. These are contemporary historical documents, not copies of copies held within the church, with the written history of the same world and timeframe covered by the Bible. We now know that the Biblical story is a contrived tale, both New and Old Testaments. The Bible is not historical, it is a collection of made-up stories based on much older stories. None of it is historical fact.
The Torah, the five books of Moses, were written after the Israelites came out of captivity in Babylon in approximately 850 BC. The story in Genesis was taken, with significant modifications, from the Enuma Elish. This is the original story of creation written on clay tablets in cuneiform, which was read aloud, one tablet per day, during the celebration of the new year in Babylon. The seven tablets were transformed into the seven days of creation. The Israelite scholars were there. They witnessed the whole celebration. They then created the Torah as a document intended to unite the Israelite tribes into a coherent political organization. That effort succeeded. Violence, war against neighboring nations, murder, rape, and slavery were incorporated into the document to give the new Israelites permission from god to attack their neighbors. That document is still being used for the same purpose today. The Torah is a political document; it is not spiritual. The god of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob was Enlil, an Anunnaki extraterrestrial.
The story of Noah and the flood is a contrived version of a much older story, the Epic of Ziasudra (the Babylonian version) and its predecessor, the Epic of Utnapishtim from Mesopotamia (Sumer). In the biblical version, god decides to wipe out mankind because of wickedness, then repents allowing Noah to build an ark to save a remnant of people and animals. In both of the older versions god is not present, but a conflict between the Anunnaki Enlil and his half-brother Enki is portrayed. Enlil, the commander of all Anunnaki on planet Earth, doesn’t decide to destroy mankind but becomes aware of a natural cataclysm and decrees that the humans shall not be notified of the coming disaster. Enki, as the protector of mankind, technically adheres to Enlil’s order but lets Ziasudra (Utnapistim) know of the disaster by talking to Ziasudra’s hut in the middle of the night (knowing full well that Ziasudra is inside listening). Thus, a portion of mankind is saved.
The Quran was written with the intention of uniting the various Arab tribes in the Middle East. That, too, was a success. The god of Islam, now called Allah, was also an Anunnaki extraterrestrial.
These are all savior-based religions. Based on what is done in the name of these religions, they are all political movements touting political documents as religious scripture.
I’ll give you another example. The Anunnaki created the form of civilization that we have today. While the Anunnaki were here, they extracted a 10% tax on the production of the people. That tax also included taking the first animal born in the spring of each specie, 10% of each crop that was grown, and 10% of items that were manufactured. This provided the Anunnaki with enough food and other items for them to live comfortably. The tithe of modern religious organizations and the taxes of political organizations today all come from this tradition.
While it may sound as if I am denouncing religious doctrine and scripture there is something more important at work here. What I am saying is that a literal interpretation of religious scripture is not to be trusted. Religious scripture (as in the story of Noah and the flood above) have come, at least in part, from actual spiritual teachings. Those spiritual teachings have always been symbolic in nature. Some of the teachings have been corrupted beyond recognition, but many have retained their spiritual roots. The teachings of Jesus from the New Testament are a prime example. Many of the parables are ignored by the modern Christian church because they don’t understand them. The modern church takes a literal interpretation of the New Testament and the parables are clearly symbolic in nature. Once we understand what the symbols are we can reconstruct the original spiritual teachings. This is the subject matter in Esoteric Teachings Explained.
Religious scriptures contain both lies and older spiritual truths. We can learn a great deal by going through religious scriptures and sorting out and discarding the lies and retaining the spiritual truths contained therein. That sorting out is the underlying purpose of this blog.
The Origin of God
There was a time when extraterrestrials ruled our world. There have been many different extraterrestrial races that have been here. Many of our indigenous people around the globe have oral traditions regarding their origins, and almost all of them credit the beginning of their races to “sky people” who came down from the heavens above, started their race of people, and gave them their culture and way of life. In academic circles these stories are considered to be myths, there are, after all, no extraterrestrials in their belief system.
In all cases, the people, once given a decent start by their extraterrestrial progenitors, have been left on their own. Some extraterrestrials have stayed for extended periods of time. The Anunnaki are a prime example of that. They came to the Middle East, established a number of different civilizations, and due to the mismanagement of their own culture and members, ended up in a conflict that destroyed most of the Middle East at the time and eventually forced the Anunnaki to move their base of operations to Central and South America. As the number of humans expanded beyond the Anunnaki’s ability to control, they eventually abandoned their controlling presence on our planet.
The extraterrestrials that founded civilizations were technologically advanced. That technology appeared to be supernatural to the humans. These extraterrestrials were thus considered gods. The main characters of the Anunnaki had personalities; some gentle and understanding (such as Enki) and some angry and vengeful (such as Enlil). In any case, the humans that dealt directly with the extraterrestrial “gods” came to understand that “god” had a personality. The nature of that personality became the foundation of a religion and guided the worship of that particular god. Many times that god enforced a set of rules for the humans under their control and those rules became the rules or tenets of what is now a religion.
There were in excess of two hundred Anunnaki that interacted with humans. Different individual Anunnaki had different agendas. They created human armies to compete for limited territory and natural resources. This is why Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all have a history of god wanting war. Violence, war, and invasion were worked into the religious scriptures so the humans could continue the practices of aggression and destruction. While each of those religions publicly pronounce that god is loving, each one privately condones the practice of war and aggression. This is why I consider those religions to be political and not spiritual. It’s not about what they say, it’s about what they do in practice.
There are some forms of religion that do not condone or participate in war. There are also religions in the New Thought movement that redefine god as being universal mind, or universal consciousness and without personality. To me, these are all steps in the right direction.
The only “God’s word” that I am familiar with is written on clay tablets in cuneiform writing from more than 3,500 years ago. To my knowledge that is not the basis of a religion. All other claims that religious scripture is the word of god is a lie. It’s the word of humans that want power and control over others and as many natural resources and money as they can get their hands on. That’s political, not spiritual.
One of the prevailing ideas is that we are children of god. Most of this concept comes from the Anunnaki who claimed that they “created” modern mankind. Created is an overly used term. The correct term is genetically modified. Many different extraterrestrial races used genetic manipulation to start human enclaves on this planet. Scientists steeped in the theory of evolution have tried a number of different ideas to account for the how the different races came into existence. Because these scientists either don’t believe in extraterrestrial visitation, or assume that the Earth alone has intelligent life on it, the obvious process of multiple genetic experiments by different extraterrestrial races is steadfastly ignored.
If we take the time to look at the creation stories of many of the different races on our planet, we discover that the root of almost every race is spawned by extraterrestrial intervention. The evidence is everywhere. It’s the assumptions of academics and scientists that preclude serious consideration of the evidence. The most damaging assumption is that we are alone in the universe. That has never been the case. We have never been alone. We have had extraterrestrial visitations and interventions for millions of years.
Scientists and academics try to argue that the vastness and extreme distances of space preclude interstellar travel. This position is based on our general lack of understanding of the universe. Primary among the lack of understanding is a fixed concept of time. Time is considered to be a universal constant. It isn’t. The passage of time is a function of the square root of the gravitational field divided by the energy field. The vast distances of space don’t work the way we think they do. Interstellar travel happens all of the time. The very highest levels of our military know how it all works. They just aren’t inclined to let regular people like you and me know the details.
Every concept of god that involves any form of a personality is based on an extraterrestrial. Don’t get me wrong, people can believe in whatever they want. I’m not saying they can’t. They can worship all the extraterrestrials as god that they want. It’s just that if we want to grow and mature spiritually, we need to come to understand the truth. There’s a lot of value in the saying that we will come to know the truth, and that truth will set us free.
