Whether you call them gods, angels, ETs, or aliens, sufficient proof now exists that beings more advanced than humans have influenced our history. Evidence suggests that these outsiders shaped our religions, genes, technology, and cultures. In fact, they may have provided the impetus for modern civilization.

Paul Von Ward investigates why modern science and religion refuse to address the possibility that humans interact with Advanced Beings (ABs). He reviews sacred texts, myths and legends--from the Old Testament, Hebrew texts, and the Vedas, to the Greek myths, Sumerian tablets, and other historical sources to make the link between religions, their gods, and alien intervention. He shows how this history of AB intervention has been suppressed and challenges readers to reexamine the origins of notions like "divine revelation" to find common ground among the world's cultures and religions.

I am so pleased that Hampton Rhodes has published this book, which is an updated version of Gods, Genes & Consciousness. Too often, publishers allow important books to fade into obscurity, so kudos to whoever had the great good sense to bring this one back.
Drawing from ancient mythic and religious texts, art and archaeology to modern scholarship, Paul Von Ward offers a stunning panorama of the physical, spiritual and cultural evolution of Earth’s inhabitants. Connecting the dots from the earliest civilizations to modern times, he suggests that advanced beings (ABs) – a term he uses to lump together gods, angels, ETs and spirit entities – have shaped human history and continue to do so to this day, directly and indirectly.
Sources like the bible describe physical and even sexual contact between these ABs and humans, which support the suggestion that the lineages of the royal families carry AB genetics. Later, the shift from natural gods present on the planet to a supernatural God that had to be feared and worshiped allowed temporal and religious rulers to assume control of the people.

If you are prepared to have an open mind, you will find absolutely fascinating material for contemplation about how humanity has been herded along the path of history. As George Santayana and Churchill said, “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Perhaps the converse is also true.
