Updated the chapter about Mars a bit: "Life on Mars in the Ancient Past".


This website is about ancient and prehistoric history according to ancient records of past civilizations and information from psychic intuitives of both the past and the present, including: Edgar Cayce (the most documented psychic of the 20th century), trance clairvoyant Dr. Douglas James Cottrell (one of the most famous documented psychics in Canada and known for his "deep trance meditation" sessions), and Dutch trance medium Daan Akkerman. 

The Old Testament of the Bible is essentially taken from the much older Jewish Tanakh, which consists of many older men oral traditions that were written much later. It is generally believed that Moses is the author of the Tanakh. During that time only the highly educated could read and write. Moses was able to do so because he was a Hebrew who was raised at the Egyptian court. The original Tanakh was written in Classical Hebrew, but the Christian Bible however is a translation from the Greek translations thereof; and the Greeks translated the names in their own languages. Throughout the centuries, the text was also adapted according to the belief from that time.

When at the beginning of Christianity the Bible was composed as a bundle of many ancient writings, many writings were not included in the Bible because they did not quite correspond to the vision of the Christian faith from that time. Many of these writing were so-called Gnostic texts; The characteristics of such texts is the message that the Divine lives in oneself, and that all are sons and daughters of God, but also that a so-called creator god would have created the world as in Greek mythology, where the gods were the almighty rulers of a world which was already in existence.

Sumer was an ancient civilization that was once part of today's Iraq. There are many similarities with the stories of the ancient Sumerian clay tablets and the Biblical stories from the Book of Genesis. These ancient texts were written in cuneiform and are at least 6,000 years old. These writings remained long untranslated until in 1802 a German school teacher finally deciphered it thanks to his examination of the Behistun inscription, which had been written in three different languages and could be translated in the same manner as with the Rosetta Stone. 

The Elohim would be the creators of the Earth. The Bible mentions the Elohim in the book of Genesis, but had been often - in the more recent translations -  translated as "LORD" or "God." This may not be entirely correct because the Classical Hebrew word "Elohim" is actually the plural form of "Eloha." According to the Jewish angelic hierarchy it means: "divine beings", and acccording to this hierarchy there would be even higher creative forces in existence. The Bene Elohim are mentioned in the first book of the Bible as the sons of God; or according to the Jewish vision: the "sons of divine beings".

According to Zecharia Sitchin's translation of the creation story from the Sumerian clay tablets, long ago the Anunnaki "gods" genetically crossed the genes of Homo Erectus with their own genetic makeup to create a new kind of life form. He translated the word "Anunnaki" as: "(those who) from heaven to earth came."

Initially they wanted to develop a slave worker with a low level of intelligence, so they could take over the heavy work of the Igigi. However, the geneticist Enki upgraded these species to a higher and more intelligent level that was on par with their creators, which eventually led to the creation of "Adam"; called modern man. (Probably the first kind of "Homo Sapiens" which we now call "Cro-Magnon man.") 

According to Edgar Cayce, the higher divine plan was that the ape-men on Earth now could incarnate into a body that was it for further, much needed spiritual expansion. According to Zecharia Sitchin's translations of Sumerian clay tablets, Enki's own son Ningishzidda would have voluntary incarnated as Adam. According to Edgar Cayce, Adam would later reincarnate as other persons including Enoch and Hermes Trismegistus, and in its latest incarnation: Jesus of Nazareth, where he completed his cycle of incarnation.

According to the Bible, the creation of man happened in the Garden of Eden ("Eden" would mean: "to make beautiful"). Trance clairvoyant Dr. Douglas James Cottrell said during a session that the Garden of Eden would have been in the area of Ethiopia. Adam would be just one of the races of the world, as there were other human races that originated in other parts. From close examination of the story in the Bible, it seems that during that time there indeed were more people on the earth besides Adam and his family.

Igigi literally means: "those who hear and see," so they were observers. However, it is clear that the Igigi were mentioned in the Bible as the "sons of God", and the "Grigori" in the book of Enoch. Grigori means "guards" or those "who keep an eye on everything." In the second book of Enoch, they were described as huge and usually obedient soldiers. "Sumer" means: "Land of the Watchers." 

According to the story of the ancient Sumerian clay tablets, the Anunnaki and Igigi were seen as gods. In the later Hebrew texts they were originally called: "sons of God", but are today mostly translated as "angels" in the Bible. The Igigi were subordinated to the Anunnaki and had to perform hard labor for them. They saw how beautiful the women of Earth had become, and because of this, a certain number of them mutined against their superiours and descended to Earth to find women for themselves. These angels were called the "fallen angels" in the book of Enoch, and would have landed on Mount Hermon on the present border of Lebanon, Syria and Israel. 

This would have taken place during the time of Atlantis, some time after the great continent of Lemuria - (which was located in the Pacific Ocean) had sunken into the sea, from where its inhabitants fled to Atlantis. The continent of Lemuria would have been situated in the Pacific Ocean, stretching from Asia all the way to the Americas. The civilization of Atlantis would have risen around 200.000 BC.

The angels brought knowledge to the people but also knowledge that was not good for them, such as the crafting of weapons and magic spells. These angels could procreate with the humans because man largely inherited their genetic makeup. Their offspring with the earth women was large in stature; They were giants. Because of this, the local food supply was quickly exhaused over and over again, and thus these giants quickly became a scapegoat, which led to conflicts between the giants and the ordinary people. Then the giants started to form their own tribes and could destroy and eat everything they saw - including humans - as no-one could oppose them to bring them to justice.

Because they didn't retreat from their involvement with the humans, the angels of God ultimately tracked down and captured the leader of the "fallen angels". However, it already was too late as the creation of man already seemed to be ruined because of the existance of the evil giants. The creators of the human race decided to correct what they saw as a big mistake and therefore they initially wouldn't save man from the impending disaster; the great Deluge.

The Deluge would have been the second major flood that affected Atlantis some 22,000 years BC. Noah stranded in Mesopotamia when the flood had ended. He was the father of Abraham and later Moses; and this is why the rest of the Bible mostly takes place in Mesopotamia and Egypt.

According to the translation of the Sumerian clay tablets by Zecharia Sitchin, the Igigi came from the planet Mars, as the "gods" also established a colony there, when Mars was already a dry and barren planet. Their true home planet would have been situated somewhere within the direction of Orion's belt. Also possibly for this reason, buildings like the pyramids of Giza were aligned with this star configuration.

Zecharia Sitchin believed they came from a planet which they would have referred to as Nibiru, which perhaps could be the hypothetical Planet X that according to the NASA could be or once have been part of our Solar System. According to the Washington Post from 1983:

"A heavenly body possibly as large as the giant planet Jupiter and possibly so close to Earth that it would be part of this solar system has been found in the direction of the constellation Orion by an orbiting telescope aboard the U.S. infrared astronomical satellite… "

According to the sessions of trance clairvoyant Dr. Douglas James Cottrell, some thirty billion years ago (when the north pole looked to the constellation of the Great Bear), there would have been intelligent life on Mars with animals, green vegetation and humanoid beings, before a huge disaster happened where the moons of Mars and Jupiter collided with each other and caused Mars to tumble, by which Mars gradually turned into the barren desert planet as we know it today. Its survivors fled to other planets including Earth - what would have been their most successful resort. The Martians that arrived on earth survived and became Earthlings.

The American electrical engineer Ernest L. Norman wrote in his own channeled book: "The Truth about Mars (1956)", that survivors evacuated more than a million years ago from the planet Mars and started a colony on planet Earth that eventually became the current Chinese race. Here we speak of the "indigenous" Martian people, not the Anunnaki/Igigi who arrived there much later.

According to Edgar Cayce, the Lemurian civilization appeared around 900,000 BC, some 100,000 years later after the Martian survivors would have settled on Earth according to Norman, and very roughly a half million years before the Anunnaki came to Earth according to Zecharia Sitchin. A civilization is defined as an advanced state of human society, in which a high level of culture, science, industry, and government has been reached. It certainly means that these Lemurians were not primitive hunter-gathers during that time. According to Sitchin, the original human species from Earth would during that time still be in a more primitive state (closer to what we now think of "ape-man") until the Anunnaki arrived on Earth and created Homo Sapiens, thus could it be that these Lemurians were the descendants of this advanced Martian race?

A declassified (apparently in February 2017) Central Intelligence Agency document of a remote viewing session done in the year 1984, tells about the planet Mars at the timeframe of likewise one million year ago, and seems to supports the information of both Dr. Cottrell and Ernest L. Norman, as it also paints a picture of large pyramid-shaped structures on Mars, a planetary disaster and mention of fleeing to another planet with much vegetation and strong volcanic activity, which seems to describe the situation of planet Earth, one million years ago. (More details in the chapter about Mars).

During the times of Lemuria and Atlantis, "Lemuria" and "Atlantis" were not the actual names of these now lost continents; The name Lemuria was given by a scientist who observed that lemurs occurred on both sides of the Pacific, from which he suggested that this could only be if there ever had been a large continent within the Pacific Ocean. According to various psychic intuitives, Easter Island is one of the few pieces of land and culture that remains of Lemuria. The statues of Easter Island would have been a tribute to those who did not survive the last great flood of Lemuria, and therefore those statues at the coast would also look to the west, where the vast continent once existed.

Until the time of Genesis, the people probably made ​​no distinction between continents and Atlantis was just the world as they knew it, and when this happened they simply called their own land their home land or something similar. The Aztecs called it: "Aztlan", which means "place of origin". The Greek philosopher Plato heard from an Egyptian priest the story of the sunken island within the Atlantic Ocean, which was then called the Atlantis Sea, and because of this, he called this island: "Atlantis".

Actually, Atlantis originally was not merely a small island; it was a huge continent that was found in the Atlantic Ocean and stretched from Central America on one side and near the coast of Morocco to the other side. However, throughout the centuries Atlantis lost more and more land from floods transforming it into an archipelago, until finally only one island remained where Plato talked about in his famous dialogues about Atlantis. 

According to certain psychic intuitives, the first major flood of Atlantis was about 52,000 years ago. Certain types of dinosaurs would still have lived at that time that would be dated wrongly because the circumstances of great floods were not taken into consideration. This is why dragons were mentioned in the Bible; These were not mere fantasy animals. It wasn't until the 1800s when the western world acknowledged the existence of such creatures from the past, as they then uncovered the first dinosaur bones. It was considered that these bones must have been millions of years old.

In 2005, paleontologist Dr. Mary Schweitzer and her group discovered the first remains of blood cells in dinosaur fossils and later discovered soft tissue remains in a Tyrannosaurus Rex specimen. This could mean that these dinosaurs were not as old as was believed before, as it is very unlikely that soft tissue could still exist after millions of years. Also, Dr. Thomas Seiler dated multiple samples of bone from eight dinosaurs to an age of only 22,000 to 39,000 years old and did present his findings in the year 2012.

Since the 15th century there had been described ancient stones from Peru that had images of monster-like creatures. On these stones there are also world maps with the inclusion of Atlantis and Lemuria. One of these stones was dated at about 55,000 years old. In Mexico there had been also found a large number of clay figures of creatures which are similar to dinosaurs.

Most of the dinosaurs would have been perished during the floods and climate change of 22,000 years ago, but also because of the actions of the humans  because they were just too dangerous for them.

Around the year 10,500 BC, many groups of people migrated to other parts of the world, including to Central America and Egypt, and here large colonies were founded. As a result, the construction styles of these cultures have many similarities and both have a form of writing in hieroglyps and the practice of mummification. 

The Gauls (the French), the Celts and the Frisians would have been direct descendants of a certain Atlantean groups. There is even a medieval writing called: "the Oera Linda Book", which tells that the Frisians came from the west that was called "Atland" what can be translated as "old land" or motherland. Around 9,900 BC the last ice age started where also the last remaining island of Atlantis sunk into the ocean. The only land that remains of Atlantis are her mountain peaks, which are now the Azores.

Life in Atlantis was in the beginning as in Lemuria very primitive, but because of the supposed genetic adaptation of the Anunnaki, people became more intelligent and because of this, a major technological advancement took place in 52,000 BC. Because the rest of the world stayed reasonably primitive, they often saw the technology of the Atlanteans as if it was magic. At the highest point of these advancements, their civilization was even comparable to the current Western civilization and at some points even more advanced. The biggest difference however was that they had learned to tap enormous forces from the workings of nature and to amplify this with the aid of crystals. 

At one point they even designed flying machines and other means of transport that made use of the natural energy grid of the earth that was amplified and made usable through the use of pyramids. This grid consists of a network of nodes and lines that we know as ley lines today. 

With this energy grid, one could also make iron and stone weightless and therefore it was also used to lift heavy stones, as for example for the building of pyramids and temples. These lines are also called the meridians or energy channels of the Earth, and are conductors of the electro-magnetic field that originates from the outer crust of the earth that consists of molten iron.

According to Dr. Douglas James Cottrell they also had a similar network with pyramids on Mars, so therefore it seems self-evident that the knowledge of such a network on Earth would probably have something to do with the knowledge of the earlier Martians that had fled to Earth.

The most advanced flying machines of the Atlanteans that could make use of this network were cigar shaped with portholes and is very similar to a particular type of unidentified flying object that had been documented many times, starting from the mid-1900s. These were called Vailx in Atlantis, and often were passenger vehicles.

In the Mahabaratha, part of the ancient Vedic scriptures from India, there is also the mention of flying machines that were called Vimana. Vimana in India still means what it used to be meant; namely: "plane". These flying machines would have been different from the Atlantean Vailx; First they were saucer shaped, but when much knowlegde about their construction was lost, they made more simplistic flying machines with wings.

Unfortunately, the knowledge to harness the enormous powers of nature also caused their downfall. The overloading of the Great Crystal - the largest power plant of Atlantis - caused a great catastrophe that caused the remaining part of Atlantis to sink below the ocean.

At certain places in the world, equally spaced from each other, this knowlegde would still be hidden and would be discovered again when the world becomes ready for it - to prevent a similar disaster. These places are in the west of the world: Yucatan in Mid-America; in the east of the world: somewhere very deep below the ground of the Giza plateau in Egypt that would be accessible through the Great Sphinx; and in the middle of the world: the temples of Atlantis below meters of sea slime.

A Brief Timeline

A brief hypothetical time line of the earliest history of mankind: (All mentioned dates are approximate).

  • 4.54 Billion years ago: Planet Earth came into existance. (Geology) The Elohim created the earth and worked on its biology during 7 phases (''days''), according to the original Hebrew Bible.
  • 3.8 Billion years ago: Pre-Cambrian period. First organic life (bacteria) on Earth. (Archaeology)
  • 542 Million years ago: Cambrian period. Complex organisms became common. (Archaeology)
  • 250 Million years ago: Triassic period. Early dinosaur species emerged. (Archaeology)
  • 199 Million years ago: Jurassic period. Large dinosaurs roamed the earth. (Archaeology)
  • (65/68 Million years ago: Mass extinction of the dinosaurs according to modern archaeology.)
  • 10.5 Million years ago: First ape-like human beings on the earth. (Cayce 2665-2) Possibly "Homo Habilis".
  • 7 Million years ago: Existence of first beings we could identify as early primitive humans. (Cottrell)
  • More than a million years ago: Human-like beings from a certain planet migrated to Mars and also started a colony on earth that in time became the Chinese race. (Ernest L. Norman) Possibly this was the original Lemurian race.
  • 900,000 BC: Appearance of the now lost civilization of Lemuria, located in the Pacific Ocean. (Cayce)
  • 500,000 BC: Destruction of the Lemurian civilization. (Cayce)
  • 485,000 BC: Alalu, from the planet referred to as "Nibiru", arrives on earth. (Sitchin)
  • 445,000/414,000 - 300,000 BC: Arrival of the Anunnaki on earth, including Enki, Enlil and their helpers. (Referred to as the "gods" of the ancient Mesopotamian myths and legends.) (Sitchin)
  • 350,000 BC: Restoration of the Lemurian civilization. (Cayce)
  • Between 350,000 BC and 200,000 BC: Possible time frame of Enoch and also the Biblical story about the communion between the "sons of God" and the "daughters of men". (This time frame is based on the statement of Daan Akkerman that this happened during the transition phase from the age of Lemuria to that of Atlantis.)
  • 250,000 BC: Final disappearance of Lemuria. (Cayce) Possible time frame for the erection of the oldest Moai statues at Easter Island after the disappearence of Lemuria. (Cottrell)
  • 200,000 BC: Start of the initial civilization of "Atlantis" and the first appearance of "Homo Sapiens Neanderthalis". (Cayce)
  • Around 88,000 BC (very rough estimate): The arrival of the colony of Initiates on the shores of the "Scandinavian part of the continent of Europe" who founded Stonehenge. The initiated priests and their followers appear to have belonged to a very early strain of the Akkadian race - they were taller, fairer and longer headed than the aborigines of the country. ("The Story of Atlantis", by W. Scott-Elliot)
  • 55,000 BC: Oldest known existence of Cro-Magnon man in Europe. (Archaeology)
  • 52,000 - 50,000 BC: Great technological advancements in Atlantis. (Cayce)
  • 50,700 BC: The start of the time period of huge earth changes due to a shift of the magnetic poles of the earth. Atlantis lost land and became an archipelago of five islands. Initial migrations from Atlantis took place in small numbers to the east and west. The earliest settlements were in the region of the Pyrenees Mountains in France and Spain, and later in Central and South America. (Cayce) Lemuria also lost land and migrations were made likewise to Central and South America.
  • Around 33,000 BC: Time frame of the third destructive force in the world and the building of the first dolmens in Egypt (Cottrell) soon afterwards. Archeology found out that Cro-Magnon man (possibly from Atlantis) invaded the western shores of Europe and North Africa in several waves in the time frame around 35,000 BC. This time frame also marks the final extinction of the Neanderthals.
  • 32,550 - 30,550 BC: First Golden Age of peace and enlightenment. The wisdom and the harmonious living with nature of the American aboriginals stems from this ancient time. Time of the Egyptian high priest Ra-Ta.
  • 28,200 - 18,000 BC: Spiritual decline of Atlantis. During this time frame there was another shift of the magnetic poles of the earth caused volcanic eruptions which led to great earth changes and the start of the last known glacial age. Atlantis loses land again and becomes one island that is connected by a chain of islands to the land of North-America. (Cayce 470-22).
  • Around 23,000 BC: Mass extinction of various animals including those large beasts, of which most of current modern scientists believe that all these species did became extinct millions of years earlier. The reason would be that many fossilized remains were wrongly dated to an age of millions of years ago. (Daan Akkerman) Dr. Douglas James Cottrell also mentions this date of 23,000 years ago as the Grand Meeting of all chiefs of the world to do away with those large beasts (these we might term "prehistoric") that were deemed destructive and a menace to the earth.
  • 22,006 BC: Time frame of the Biblical "Deluge" also known as "Noah's Flood"; This particular "flood" would have happened during the "second of the eruptions" in: "two-thousand - two-two thousand and six" [22,006?] BC. (Cayce 364-6)
  • 18,000 BC: First developments of saucer-shaped flying machines in Atlantis (according to Eklal Kueshana, author of the book "The Ultimate Frontier"). Possibly one of the "chariots" that had been witnessed and described by the Biblical prophet Ezekiel. (Cayce 1859-1)
  • 17,400 BC: First destruction of Atlantis. (7,500+9,900) (Cayce 364-11)
  • 13,000 BC: Second Golden Age of peace and enlightenment. (Source unknown)
  • 10,173 BC: Time frame of the story of Zailm from Atlantis, in the book "A Dweller on Two Planets". Cigar-shaped aircraft called "Vailx" had been developed in Atlantis which could also travel under water. (Oliver, "A Dweller on Two Planets (1894)")
  • 11,016 BC: Arararat, second of the northern Kings (Egypt), became ruler at age 16. (Cayce 341-9)
  • 10,700 (BC?): The continent of Lemuria began its disappearance. (Cayce 364-4)
  • Somewhere between 11,000 and 10,500 BC: Ancient knowlegde and history from the times of Atlantis had been concealed beneath the place which is now known as the Giza plateau in Egypt. (Cayce)
  • 10,490 to 10,390 BC: The construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza, which took 100 years according to Edgar Cayce, and was directed by Ra and Hermes. (Cayce 5748-6) The pyramids were built around 10,500 BC and the Great Sphinx was built 100 years later; during the time of the "great eclipse". (Daan Akkerman)
  • 10,360 BC: Destruction of the Atlantean manufacturing city Marzeus and Terna (the Biblical "cities of the Plain") by the "Navaz" forces (the enormous potential of the forces of nature) they had forgotten how to control. This caused the end of the knowledge and usage of advanced technology that was based on their science. (Oliver, "A Dweller on Two Planets")
  • 10,360(?) - 9,900 BC: Greed, lust and corruption led to moral decline and the spiritual downfall of the golden age of Atlantis. Blinded by the fear for coming disasters, as retribution for their sinful lives, human sacrifices of innocent people became common in an attempt to attone for their mutual sins. (Oliver, "Dweller on Two Planets") Edgar Cayce also mentioned between 7,000 and 9,000 BC as the timeframe of the decline of the golden age of Egypt.
  • 10,300 BC: Establishment of the Great Library in Alexandria, Egypt. (Cayce 315-4)
  • 9,900 BC: Another shift of the magnetic poles happened during the end of the last glacial age. This caused more earth changes that led to the sinking of the remaining islands of Atlantis including Poseidia. (Cayce 364-1 and 288-1) The people that were able to escape at that time, fled to Egypt, Yucatan, Mexico and other places. (Cayce) This also brought changes to the connections of the electro-magnetic field of the earth, which started the further densification of matter what ended the possiblity for spiritual beings (gods/angels/genies) to materialize and dematerialize at will, and incarnation became the sole posibility to experience life on earth. (Daan Akkerman) According to Rudolf Steiner, people were able to percieve the world of the gods in their sleep before the decline of Atlantis, but not anymore thereafter.
  • 9,000 BC: Animalistic influences like appendages of wings, tails, feathers, claws and hooves were finally disappeared from the human body, except for some remnants that were later depicted accurately in Assyrian and Egyptian art. (Robinson, "Edgar Cayce's Story of the Origin and Destiny of Man")
  • 8,000 BC: Original construction of the temple complex of Angkor Wat. [Around 10,000 years ago.] (Cottrell)
  • 6,000 BC: Ocean level rises again. Catastrophe in the surroundings of the Bimini Islands. (Archaeology)
  • 5,500 BC: Date of the Biblical "Exodus", according to Edgar Cayce, where Ramesses II was Pharaoh. (Cayce 470-22) This however contradicts the historical date of the reign of this Pharaoh (1,279-1,213 BC) according to Egyptologists. 
  • 3,800 BC: Generally accepted by archeologists considered as the date of the "sudden" rise of a highly evolved civilization in Sumer (ancient Southern Iraq). Could possibly have been much older. (Archaeology)
  • 2,038 BC: Birth of Abraham (Ibrahim); the founding father of the Israelites. (Bible scholars)
  • 1,391 BC: Birth of Moses, founder of the Israelite religion. (Bible scholars)
  • 1,194 -1,184 BC: The Trojan War against the city of Troy by the Achaeans (Greeks) after prince Paris of Troy took Helen from her husband Menelaus, king of Sparta. (Traditionally dated)
