You might have heard about a sheep called ‘Dolly’ who was the first mammal to be cloned from an adult somatic cell using the process of somatic-cell nuclear transfer. This process includes the removal of a cell nucleus to allow for the transfer of an unfertilized adult cell. The manufactured cell is then given an electric shock to stimulate it to start reproduction and subsequent division. Then the cell is introduced into a Foster Mother to develop until birth. Dolly the sheep was born artificially on 5 July 1996 and lived for almost 7 years before dying of a progressive lung disorder and severe arthritis that was not related to the cloning process.
After the success of cloning Dolly, many other large mammals were cloned including pigs, deer and horses. Four identical clones of Dolly are alive and healthy to this day. Scientists have been successful in cloning extinct species too, which brings forward the idea that we can keep all species alive and even reproduce species that were extinct hundreds or thousands of years in the past. In an almost Jurassic Park type scenario every animal, including possibly humans, can be cloned and reborn.
“And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept, and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof. And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said; This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh, she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Genesis 2:21-23
So, was this process demonstrated when the first woman was produced by God? Did that higher being have the technology to clone a woman from the cells of Adam’s rib? Were these Gods extra-terrestrials from another planet? There are many representations of a higher power in the Old Testament, the oldest of which is taken from Hebrew texts, Sumerian tablets and other representations in ancient caves and Pyramids. Are these representations suggesting the Gods are from other planets? One can only speculate but it makes for a good argument when you consider the facts and latest reports from scholars and various academics.
And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish in the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth the earth. So, God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him, male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl in the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Genesis 1:26-28
Did the Gods use technology to create man? Did they use somatic-cell nuclear transfer techniques to germinate human DNA? Is Humanity the product of stem cell research from 10000 years BCE? Are we just beginning to understand how this technique works? What can we learn from the ancients? Maybe the answer lies in the great Pyramids in Egypt or at Gobekli Tepe in Turkey. Gobekli Tepe had been discovered in the late 1960’s but was dismissed as not something significant at that time. More recently scientists have unearthed large T-Shaped stones weighing between 12 and 15 tons. The entire complex is currently measured to be twenty times bigger than Stonehenge. Evidence indicates the monument had been intentially buried to conceal its existence. Archeologists tested the dirt that they buried it with and have carbon dated it at around 12500 BCE. Scientists are still uncovering the secrets of Gobekli Tepe and it may turn out to be even larger in size. It is safe to say many questions will be answered once the entire site is dug out and researched. Answers that might tell us where we come from and possibly why are we on earth to begin with.
