The Origin of Religion
Most people on the planet believe in one religion or another. Since religion is believed in by so many people in a country it provides for a binding of the public. A common belief among the people.
The ruthless leaders use religion for their aggressive plans and wars. They lie and propagandize to the people about their enemy. Usually claiming the enemy does things that are contrary to the people's religion or its principles. This incites the people to a point of being duped into war with the rulers perceived enemy. The common belief in their religion binding the people to action. The ruthless leaders then use the war to control their own people.
Many people today use religion as a whipping post for all sorts of wrongs done in the past and present. Most of these cases are done by people not following their religion. It is the people, not the religion that went wrong. The only possible exception to this is Islam.
When a person stops to think about the origin of religion, one thinks of god. But there is no passage I know of except for Jesus where he is asked "how the people should pray". Later, Jesus mentions the disciples building his church.
If you have read and watched the Sumerian tablet videos of Enki and Atrahasis, you come to the conclusion the gods demanded mankind pray to them. They even built temples for themselves for the people to pray to them in. When they did not pray enough, bad things would happen to the people. The gods heaped disease and starvation, among other things, upon the created mankind to get them to do their bidding.
A person must conclude the gods made "religion" by demanding mankind pray to them. Religion was started in a negative state. The people prayed out of fear of what would happen if they were not in the gods favor. And at that time there were many gods roaming the earth.
Religion today is somewhat different than when it originated. The new testament is the cause of this change. The new testament is not about Jesus. It is about the change in religious philosophy, a new way of teaching and a new way to think of religion and god.
The Annunaki, an alien humanoid race which created us, demanded we pray to them.
We do not have any evidence I know of about the alien race that created Jesus by the virgin impregnation of Mary. Unless you believe in the Billy Meier alien contactee story of the Pleiadians. The Billy meier story is the most documented alien contactee story to date. It appears to be true. The story told to Billy Meier by them is a Pleiadian spaceship commander impregnated Mary.
In the Annunaki 's time of the old testament there were signs and wonders. In other words the Annunaki ruled by the people's fear of the Annunaki's advanced intelligence, power and weapons. The Annunaki could do things that amazed the people. The Annunaki could punish people or reward them.
They demanded devotion through fear. Devotion through what the people could see that could be done to them.
If you read the Enki and Atrahasis tables on this web site, you will quickly see how badly the Annunaki creators treated mankind.
The new testament is completely different. Jesus uses very few signs and wonders, nothing that harms or punishes others, but the real message is love. Instead of devotion through fear, it is put forth as devotion through love. In other words, from the heart. Jesus promotes a new concept. A different way of looking at devotion to god.
Timing is everything in life. Some religious people believe the flood was approximately 4,400 years ago. We know, because of the Sumerian tablets, the Annunaki came back to Earth after the flood and rebuilt some of their settlements. They still needed gold for Nibiru. They did leave at some point after year 1732 after the flood because of the contamination from the weapons they used against each other. The Annunaki commander went west and provided Nibiru gold from most likely Mexico or Peru.
The question is, did the Annunaki leave Earth and as they left, give us Jesus so we would have a new way of living peacefully? I do not believe the Annunaki were capable of that.
Or did some other alien race intervene, after the Annunaki, and provide us with Jesus and a new way of living?
It could be the alien humanoid race that provided jesus may have not to highly of the Annunaki. They might have thought them evil.
It might explain the New Testament passage:
Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
In either case, what we think of as "god" or "gods" were not really what we should aspire to be or pray to. Jesus, although a better way of living, still has us praying to a "god" rather than to the "creator".
After reading the Enki and Atrahasis tablets, I have come to the conclusion the Annunaki were extremely lacking. The Pleiadians were better, but still require us to pray to them. Again, in either case, these space traveling humanoids are acting falsely as a replacement for the creator.
If these alien humanoid races are so superior, why do they need us to pray to them.
At this point I know there is a "creator of all", but I have nothing but disdain for "gods".
In conclusion here is a video that may shed some light on the entire concept of the creator, gods and praying to them.
