Kurzbeschreibung

Have you ever wondered who first penned the bible and where its familiar stories originated?

Some say much of it was written by Moses a thousand years before that. Others believe it to be a collection of tales told generation after generation around the campfires of nomads.

Recently, scholars have uncovered another explanation---one that defies belief! The first intelligent life on earth may have arrived here from another world, according to the translators of some recently discovered 5,000 year-old texts.

This fantastic notion was first documented by an individual claiming to be one of those original explorers who traveled to earth, genetically crafted the first humans, and guided the development of civilization. According to his own words, the author of a very ancient story was (in a very practical sense) our ‘heavenly’ father. His influence can be found in every major religion on earth today.


An editorial review by Peter M. Fitzpatrick, The US Review of Books:

"I have sought to find additional truths underlying biblical texts by researching historical and archeological data."

Sumerian literature, lately rediscovered through archeological relics over 5,000 years old, is composed of cuneiform letters that are difficult to translate. As a result, widely varying interpretations of its meaning have fueled controversial theories, the most famous perhaps being those of Zechariah Sitchin. His ideas about ancient astronauts from a planet beyond Neptune that mine gold on Earth by genetically engineering Homo erectus with their own DNA to produce Homo Sapiens, are echoed here. Kerry frames his narrative in the recollections of the Biblical Nehemiah as he is returning to Israel after the Babylonian Captivity. His memory of the Sumerian shards he was made to translate lead to a "flashback" style of recasting the Book of Genesis retold as if "Elohim" was in fact an ancient astronaut. The planet of origin is updated to the recently mapped Eris, 27 times more massive than Pluto. All "tree-of life" references are interpreted as being symbolic of DNA strands.

The book is very heavy on theme, of course, the Biblical language of the ancient astronauts almost a word-for-word transliteration of passages from Genesis. As such, the characters are not deeply fleshed out, their function chiefly being to argue the author's thesis. The plot is Epic, of course, the creation of modern humans, but that is not the author's concern, really. His main purpose is to re-affirm a transcendent God behind it all, and to reconcile Sitchin's theories with religious belief. Not likely to be carried by Christian bookstores, the writer is nevertheless committed to a Christian belief.

2.0 von 5 Sternen dubious at best 1. Juni 2012
Von Charles Weatherstone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
"Elohim: Ancient Science Fiction or Biblical God?" would be better categorized as 'religious fiction'. The author has combined ancient Sumerian texts with more recent Biblical characters to create a 'back and forth' story of very ancient beings from another planet who came to earth and modified existing life to create what we are now. Check out this planet online and you'll find it's a sub-planet way way out beyond pluto, tho it crosses occasionally inside the orbit of neptune. There are shades of some of the 2012 Mayan stories of the planet 'Nabiru'. Is it plausible? Not really. Again checking online, the actual Sumerian texts don't yet have a good translation, and what translation exists is highly disputed as to meaning. So essentially, we've got a dubious translation interposed with Bible-time characters who are looking back at their own translations of Sumerian texts, and trying to reconcile these with their own understanding of Scripture. Religious fiction, and only a so-so story at that.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Very bland 13. Mai 2013
Von mel rose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Even thought he topic was presented in the form of a fictional novel, it felt more like a clinical report. Characters were barely developed and the visuals left a lot to be desired. This could have been a much better work with a little bit of world-building and some main characters who were more than names on a page. I had no problem with the subject ..it didn't offend me at all, but everything could have been so much richer with a little more work. Eris was barely described and so was the journey to Earth. Very simplistic explanation of the science (virtually none) left me pondering a lot of whys and hows. I deleted it from my Kindle as it isn't worth a revisit.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Open For Discussion 26. Dezember 2011

Thought provoking, some would say "blasphemy", others would say "It's about time!". Kerry Barger has done his homework with a passion in finding Truth. With that in mind, reading this book was more than entertainment. He has gone out on a limb which I find to be brave and courageous. It is not a flowing type of book with a story line of character interactions reaching one of the possible endings to the story. I have told many of my friends that this book is a MUST READ.

Interesting description combining actual events with ancient texts to make a plausible interpretation of the Bible. I have and will continue to recommend this book and have been prompted to do some research of my own.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I enjoyed this book. It may not be for everyone, though. 30. September 2012

I give it 5 stars... and I don't give very many books 5 stars!! RECOMMENDED!,

I am just a regular person submitting a review. I am not particularly religious or not. I believe we got here somehow, but I am not sure how. I do not necessarily disbelieve the Bible, or evolution, or any of the contemporary (or historical) explanations of how we all came to be. What I am is someone who is open minded about how all this came about.

I guess that is what separates people of faith from those with an open mind. People of faith have undying faith that what they believe is the way it is, and they have no room for questioning anything. They take what they have faith in, and stick with that 100% to their death. I suppose one of the reasons is because they like the end result of what they believe in, if what they believe in gives them eternal life after death, or a world full of virgins to greet them, or whatever. Do not take my comments as disrespectful, because they are not intended to be. I am simply stating what I believe to be fact about what some religions believe they will be rewarded with if they behave in accordance with the writings of their religion.

I am not sure that anything awaits me after death. (I would love to think I would get to see my Mother again, though!!) All I know is that it is important for me to be kind and fair and just. It is important for me to expose bad guys and convict wrong-doers. I know it is my duty to treat everyone with fairness and love, until the time comes where I have to apply fair justice (through the courts, through law enforcement, etc). I do believe punishment is necessary for wrongs committed. All of these things come to me from my heart.... Not necessarily through any particular religion. I believe we need laws, and it is my opinion that the various religious texts (Bible, etc) do a good job of conveying examples of what is right and what is wrong. Some of us come out of the womb knowing what is right and what is wrong... others don't, and those folks need help to understand it. Written laws achieve that purpose for some, the Bible achieves it for others... and other religions have their texts that achieve it for them. Those texts also give hope to people who feel they are without hope... hopeless. So, that is a good result of those texts.

What is sad to me though, is that there are so many variations of the religions, many are very similar, but all have something different. So you can kind of pick and choose until you find one that fits your lifestyle and your personal beliefs of what the world should be like.

I guess what am trying to say is that there is no definitive text that has all the answers. All of the texts were translated my mere men, a long, long time ago, who had a limited understanding of life, death, space, the heavens, technology, etc. And, those ancient texts, some written in long dead languages, continue to be translated and interpreted by mere mortal men. To this day children (and yes, even adults) have a hard time NOT exaggerating when retelling a story. I would be foolish to think it was any different way back then... especially when faced with extraordinary, unexplainable things.

I know that three "eye witnesses" to an event TODAY each will give a different variation of what they saw. It has a lot to do with their understanding of the things that had an effect on the actual event. No one is lying... they are just each giving their truthful version of what they saw based on their limited understanding of how things work.

I think we can all agree that it has been common practice over time for ruling groups to interpret things (texts, writings, visions, monuments, sightings, stories, etc) in a manner that supports the agenda of the ruling group. It is a way to exert control over large groups of otherwise unrelated people and to achieve civil obedience. Without civil obedience there would be pure chaos. Anything that does not meet their agenda and personal views can be cleverly interpreted as a violation of whatever religion and is deemed sinful and taboo. (homosexuality, for example). With that, they can pass judgment, supported by their interpretation of some text, and persecute whatever group of people they choose, and they do that using a text that has been interpreted in a manner that meets their agenda goal.

So, after saying all of that (and you are still with me, reading this!!), I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. It gave a different perspective of how things may have come to be. Not right, not wrong, just a different perspective. So, if you are interested in reading about a different plausible explanation, then you should read this book. It was short enough for me to finish in a few hours, so it wasn't like reading an encyclopedia.

If you have 100% faith in your belief system, then reading this book will just make you mad because you don't want anyone to tell you that your belief system may be flawed or downright wrong. I would not recommend this book to those of you in that category.

As far as formatting goes, I only found one grammar/spelling error.... It's instead of its (my personal pet peeve) and two words that were stuck together without a space in between and there should have been one. The author, the author's editor, and the proofreader did a pretty good job! Thank you for that!!

I give it 5 stars... and I don't give very many books 5 stars!!

BOTTOM LINE: RECOMMENDED!
