Hi all,

Let me first say that this is my first post here and i'm glad to have found this site.

Anyways, I've recently read a book called Slave Species of god - by Michael Tellinger, a South African writer. This book is very fascinating and moved me very much in the sense of alternative thinking and religious flaws. It basically covers a variety of subjects such as our obsession with gold, where the actual cradle of humanity is and furthermore extra terrestrial god like beings who created us for the sole purpose of mining gold on earth in order to aid their dying planet. It is hugely based on Sumerian tablets collected and translated by Zecharia Sitchin.

I would very much like to read your views on this, so if anyone has heard of or read the book please give me your opinion on this. Thanx!!

I haven't read the Michael Tellinger book you mention, but if he cites Zecharia Sitchin as an authoritative source, there's a very high probability that it's nonsense. A South African predecessor seems to be Wayne Herschel who argues that humans came to Earth some 17,250 years ago from a distant planet near the Pleiades (see this thread for more on this).

Herschel also relies on people like Sitchin, Hancock, Beauval, Berlitz, von Däniken, etc., as "reliable sources." I have read Herschel's book and it's a load of fanciful hogwash. However, I will keep my eyes peeled for the Tellinger book with a view to reading, and perhaps critiquing, it.

Also didn't read the book but "extra terrestrial god like beings who created us for the sole purpose of mining gold on earth in order to aid their dying planet" should get the brain cells working. How can our mining activities here on earth aid them? We mine the gold and keep it here on earth. Most if it in Fort Knox I believe and sadly not in my save at home.

Well we keep the gold now, but back then, according to the author's theory it was shipped to their planet and basically used to repair their disappearing atmosphere. Gold having a very dense structure when sort of evaporated.

The book also explains that they altered the first walking ape's genes with theirs to create a slave species (us) to toll in the mines.
