Was there genetic engineering in ancient times? Did the Sumerian god Enki create clones?
The idea that ancient aliens modified human DNA plays a vital role in the Ancient Astronauts theory.
According to the late author and researcher Zecharia Sitchin the Anunnaki, a group of extraterrestrials that visited our planet in the past genetically engineered Homo sapiens as slave creatures to work their gold mines by crossing extraterrestrial genes with those of Homo erectus.
Zecharia Sitchin was not the only one who suggested humans are genetically created by highly advanced extraterrestrial beings.
A deeper investigation of the subject revelas there is a connection between ancient genetic engineering and prehistoric weapons of mass destruction.
According to author Joseph Robert Jochmans who specializes on ancient mysteries, “in the Sanskrit text known as the Samara Sutradhara, we find mention of the use of two biological weapons, each of which produced its own results: the Samhara debilitated its victims by attacking the motor center of the brain; and the Moha caused blockage of nerve impulses, resulting in complete paralysis.
In the Chinese Feng-Shen-Ven-I, we find similar descriptions of germ warfare, and again reference is made to specific weapons causing specific results.
|What these descriptions imply is that the ancients once actively created and produced strains of microbes — much in the same way many modern governments are secretly conducting research to find new and deadly forms of microbes for military purposes.Just how far the ancients took their experiments may be found in an enigma that still affects mankind today — the Virus.
When first discovered, viruses were thought to be an intermediary step between life and non-life.
In an inert state, it is much like an inorganic crystal, but when active it acts with a purposeful manner, and duplicates by using biological processes.
But as the virus has come under more and more scientific scrutiny, several disturbing facts have emerged. The most important is that viruses have a high degree of host specificity — in other words, it is as if they were designed to attack man, and man alone. And since man is supposedly only a recent arrival on this planet, the virus too must be a recent phenomenon. But where did it come from?
As Mooney, in “Gods Of Air and Darkness”, noted: “Viruses have recently been synthesized in our modern research laboratories by recombining existing virus material, thus producing new strains not found in nature. Therefore it is not impossible that a highly advanced society in the past may have done a similar thing. This would connect closely with the reports of biological weapons in ancient documents.”
Producing New Deadly Forms
Going one step further, modern researchers are also experimenting with changing the structure of DNA, the basic building blocks of life, which contain the codes of identity in the genetics of the individual. Already new forms have been produced which could prove to be deadly, and would be a serious threat if uncontrolled, because they have the ability to reproduce themselves.
The virus is a little machine that accomplishes the very same thing, only in a specific manner: It contains a core of altered DNA material that it injects into the nucleus of a human cell, and the DNA in that cell is transformed to reproduce the virus form. As a result, the cell is reorganized to produce more viruses, not cells; and when the cell disintegrates, its mutated offspring spread to attack and inject themselves into other cells — and the process begins again, only multiplied. Did someone in the unknown past design the virus as a biological weapon?
If so, it presupposes a knowledge of genetic engineering that is not very far removed from our own.
The extent to which the ancients carried out their genetic studies may be hinted at in a new development taking place in modern research.
