Many more or less fanciful but certainly fascinating theories have been in vogue in recent decades.
Now that Zecharia Sitchin is dead it seems that his research on the Annunaki aliens, their arrival on Earth, the existence of Nibiru and his return are absolutely normal, with a growing following of supporters.
Sitchin, in his many books, claimed that the Annunaki were the gods of antiquity, always the same but with different names: so Osiris, Jupiter, Odin, came down to Earth with powerful weapons, between flashes of light and lightning, to teach man the basic techniques for evolution. In addition, these aliens/gods would often mate with human women, from whom the demigods like the famous Hercules, to name but one, would be born. But alien technology was also extremely developed in the genetic field, in DNA manipulation, and they would use it both to modify our own, making us what we are today, and for artificial insemination for scientific purposes. From one of these inseminations would have been born Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God, born of a virgin mother.
It is precisely the words of the Gospel, and especially the Apocryphal Gospels, that indicate the similarities with the stories of the Annunaki: Mary visited by a shining being (was the archangel Gabriel an alien?) and became pregnant without any sexual intercourse, virgin. The star that indicated the path to the Magi, drawing a luminous trail in the sky, and then stopping on the stable where Jesus was born, was it perhaps a spaceship? Jesus said that he was the son of God, that his kingdom was not of this earth, but in the high heavens beside his Father. Was he referring to heaven or space? Could the kingdom be Nibiru, or Sirius? Then could his father be an Annunaki god? If Christ was born by artificial insemination he would have had the DNA of an alien god, so he would have been a demigod, which would explain his abilities, miracles, to be precise.
The resurrection would seem to be ufological in nature:
Ascension to heaven.
Jesus, resurrected from space medicine, returns home. In the tomb two shining beings warn the women that the Son of God has returned to new life, has risen. There are representations, icons, of Mary at the tomb with a strange flying object floating above her. Evidence from ancient art? Furthermore, scholars who have analyzed the Shroud (keeping as good the hypothesis that it represents the image of Jesus) claim that the sheet was exposed to a strong ray of energy, which allowed the image to remain imprinted like a photograph, and that the body of Christ must have dissolved into nothingness, because there are no stains or smudges additional to the features that indicate that Jesus stood up and took off the shroud. Maybe an alien ship recovered the body with advanced technology? Theories that will make Catholics’ skin crawl all over the place, those who cling to dogma so as not to ask questions.
Honestly, I don’t care if Jesus was the son of God or an alien god, I just need his words and teachings. Human, impostor, god, demigod, alien… what does it matter? But the truth, that is important, and it seems that mankind is desperately looking for it, even in the most absurd ways, between conspiracies and a lot of fantasy. Who will live will see, but maybe we’ll only find out later. When we’re dead. And we can’t go back and tell anyone about it.
