The Holy Grail

For the last few months, after reading all of Dan Brown’s books, I have been reading about the Grail Lore in several books by Laurence Gardner.  I read his “Genesis of the Grail Kings” thinking that it was a fictional story like Dan Brown’s books, but was a little surprised when he started referencing passages from the bible and linking them to information derrived from older historical sources.  What really sparked my interest was his references to where the authors of the bible just plainly got it wrong or completely changed things for alterier motives.  Some of the postulations that he makes really makes you think about things, but others are just so crazy its hard to beleive.  He refered to Genesis on many occassions, about how “Adam” was a reference to “one man”, but according to ancient documents was actually a reference to a race of people which included a male AND a female.  Something the author of Genesis ignored and then came up with the whole Eve thing.  He further postulated that according to these older references, statements like “…and the Gods came down from above” were references to how the earth might have been populated by aliens. Its quite funny actually. 

He equates his references to actual places and all references that he knows of from different eras and authors.  He delves into the symbolism of references and shows how sayings that we have today and or things we have read about of ancient lore actually came to be.  I’m now reading one of Laurence Gardners’ other books, the “Realm of the Ring Lords”.  In this book he refers to J. R. R. Tolkiens Lord of the Rings books and equates the fiction that he wrote about in them, to actual historical records of events and people and places from that era.  So far its quite interesting.  What I found a little shocking was his description of  “The Donation of  Constantine” and what its intended purpose must have been, or rather has been.  I haven’t researched this at all beyond what is mentioned in this book, but it sounds like this document is what caused our religious beleifs to be what they are today, as appossed to what the reality of it all perhaps should have been.  It makes you feel like the “church” has hidden a whole section of our historical past just so it can “control us” to their way of being.  I’m not against the “church” or religion in any way, I’m just finding all of these “alternate realities” fascinating.

JOKE OF THE DAY:

The strong young man at the construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special case of making fun of one of the older workmen. After several minutes, the older worker had had enough.

“Why don’t you put your money where your mouth is,” he said. “I will bet a week’s wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that outbuilding that you won’t be able to wheel back.”

“You’re on, old man,” the braggart replied. “Let’s see what you got.”

The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, “All right. Get in.”

    A Genesis story, With A Twist

    And God saw that it was good. And on the seventh day, God rested. And on the eighth day Adam and Eve set up house in the Garden of Eden.

    We all know the story of Adam and Eve. The first two humans to set foot upon the Earth. God put them there, in the Garden of Eden, after he created the earth, oceans, land, sky, heavens, animals, birds, and the fish in the sea. God told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply. The rest is history. Or is it..

    The Grassy Knoll has another way to look at this event. Perhaps Aliens in search of fuel, food, and natural resources landed on this third planet from the sun. Upon investigation, they found a very primitive mammal life. Humans in their utmost infancy. Almost indistinguishable from the apes that they fought for dominance. Maybe the aliens took a liking to the humans. Sort of like pets. Adhering to standard protocol, several experiments were conducted on the wildlife. Enhancements were discussed. These enhancements would give humans an edge on the evolutionary chain. They choose a male and female of the species.

    The aliens, after surveying the landscape of the earth, decided an increase in brain capacity so as to raise the intellect for their two subjects, would be the best advantage. The surgery was performed, brain capacity increased triggering their nervous systems to quicken responses from the brain to the body. A sense of awareness and cognitive reasoning was expanded. Add a little alien DNA to develop vocal cords for speech and the transformation was complete. As the humans awoke, they were studied and evaluated to make sure the enhancements had taken hold, and then released back into the wild to be fruitful and multiply.

    This explains the fabled missing link of the human species. One day, humans were just another species struggling to survive. The next day, the dominant species of the planet with domain over the fish in the sea, the animals on the land, and the birds in the sky. These two humans, we’ll call them Adam and Eve for the sake of not having better names, immediately knew that they had been altered. They were aware of each other on a very personal and intimate way. They could communicate with gestures, and soon by voice and finally a crude spoken language.

    Adam and Eve became mates and had offspring. Many offspring. These children maintained the genetic enhancements from their parents and carried on the new seed to the existing herd.The alien seed had been planted, the human race was advancing in leaps and bounds with every generation and soon created social order and a written language. Tools became more elaborate and with every generation, improvements were made. The aliens changed the course of Earths evolution and mankinds destiny forever.

    And on the seventh millennium, the aliens rested.
