Overview

New edition published as We're Not Alone

Whether you call them gods, angels, ETs, aliens, or spirit entities, sufficient proof now exists to make the case that history has been influenced by beings more advanced than humans. The evidence suggests they shaped our religions, genes, technology, and cultures. In fact, the impetus for modern civilization appears due to their intervention.

Analysis of all types of reported nonhuman consciousness reveals a generic category the author calls Advanced Beings, or ABs. A review of sacred texts, myths and legends, and contemporary reports shows all such entities fit into a natural universe. It includes allegedly divine beings, heavenly hosts, guardians, ascended masters, and intelligences from other planets or other dimensions. Whether from the Pleiades or Yahweh's Heaven, historical, archeological, and scientific evidence now shows we've had their help along the way.

While scientists, religious leaders, and governments continue to ignore or deny it, our very identity as a species and its psychological health hang in the balance. How to deal with the effects of such contacts lies at the center of a covert struggle for control of human consciousness.

Startlingly, Von Ward explains why institutions do not want to address this question. And he shows how generations have been conditioned to ignore or suppress a significant part of their experience, despite the fact that thousands daily still claim contact with a God or another AB.

How did humans reach the point where leaders claim to speak for God in such conflicting ways? Paul Von Ward, also author of Our Solarian Legacy, says resolving the religious and ideological divisions that energize modern terrorism requires people, East and West, to re-examine the origins of notions like "divine revelation," "chosen people," and "a supernatural religion."

    Gods, Genes, and Consciousness

    God, Genes and Consciousness is a natural progression for Paul Von Ward¿s earlier book Our Solarian Legacy. Whether you¿ve read his earlier work or not or whether you have done your homework on the evidence for non-human intervention into human history or are just beginning, I highly recommend this book. Paul Von Ward quickly brings his readers up to speed on past work while at the same time introduces them to the latest findings in such fields as genetics and linguistics. The amount of material covered is truly astonishing, but Paul Von Ward is not just a scholar and researcher. He brings more to the table and the best way for me to describe him is to borrow his own words as he describes a unified consciousness: ¿¿sees the universe as an integral organism with all beings and phenomena interdependent and governed by the same principles.¿ It is through these eyes that Mr. Von Ward is able see our ¿mistakes and misinterpretations of encounters with other conscious beings¿ and that it is here we must start if we want to make a better world.

    Review of Gods, Genes and Consciousness

    Review of ?Gods, Genes and Consciousness? by Paul Von Ward I found this book an excellent study in comparative history, theology, science and ufology from ancient to modern history. The novel idea that ABs (Advanced Beings) were the original Gods of antiquity who abandoned the earth and that cults were formed by mankind to be reconnected to them (the ABs) was very interesting. The notion of ?cover-ups? by governments regarding UFOs and ETs is a familiar subject. However, the challenge facing modern mankind to reevaluate the aforementioned comparative subject areas from the ?grass roots? up resonated with me. In the words of Father Keller, ?It is better to light just one little candle than to curse the darkness.? I have a strong aversion to the folks who rail against government deception and ?men in black.? Although they probably exist, I think the real threat comes from folks who are ignorant and individuals in authority who fear losing their power and ridicule UFO witnesses and ET experiencers. I am a retired psychotherapist and an Assistant State Director of MUFON Tennessee East as well as a UFO witness and ET experiencer. I would like to participate in consciousness raising community discussions like those proposed by the author. Melvin C. Redfern, M.Ed., M.A. D.C.H. Ph.D.(c)

    An intelligent and rational presentation of possible human origins

    Although I am only halfway through this new book, I have begun to realize the importance of the subject matter and how it is presented. Evidently, Mr. Von Ward has spent considerable time researching his book, demonstrated by the wide range of references and the depth of the subject matter. I believe this book may be the first of its kind, exploring beyond what the religious community would have us believe about our origins. It offers a rational explanation of where we really come from and the possible link to other intelligent beings. Mr. Von Ward is evidently a well educated and very intelligent man who makes a presentation that is compelling and thought provoking. I highly recommend this book for those who have an intense curiosity that goes beyond irrational and illogical religious dogma.

    Gods, Genes, and E. T. s

    Author Paul Von Ward and 33% of the American public believe that extra-terrestrials have set foot on planet Earth, but you don¿t have to credit that idea to get something out of Gods, Genes, and Consciousness, which entertains as it educates. This book, an alternative history of Western Civilization, asserts that the Judeo-Christian-Islamic tradition is based on a mistake. Von Ward argues that ¿Sin¿ and ¿Satan¿ were originally good (for humans, anyway), while the authoritarian JHVH (Jehovah, Yahweh) was not-so-good. An engaging writer, Von Ward relates the consequences of human contact with ABs (Advanced Beings) as if it were a rousing science fiction tale--but he feels it isn¿t. The author¿s goal is to end religiocide (the killing of the members of one religion by the adherents of another), to return human consciousness to naturalism (as opposed to the misguided notion that gods exist in an other-worldly dimension--supernaturalism), and to harmonize human activity with the needs of other species and the Earth. This is a tall order, for which he proposes a ¿new mythology¿ debunking allegiance to individual gods such as YHVH, Christ and Allah. Von Ward espouses the ¿perennial philosophy,¿ spirituality even a scientist can endorse, based on the concept that the Creative Forces which spawned the universe are manifest in each and all and everything. No review can do justice to the breadth of Von Ward¿s reach. His book may become as popular as Immanuel Velikovsky¿s Worlds in Collision or Julian Jaynes¿ The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. It is certainly as radical. Whether or not you wind up agreeing with his point of view, you will find it impossible to forget, impossible to entirely discount, and it will change your way of looking at God, and gods¿and your own consciousness.

    Do you want to know how deep the rabbit hole goes?

    [and some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend. Legend became myth] (The Fellowship of the Ring) -- and so I was reminded as I read every word (even the Endnotes) of this latest, quite excellent book by Paul Von Ward. The author used various resources (different sciences, religious and cultural accounts, translations of ancient texts and tablets, etc.) to research, examine and assess a more truthful account of the history of humans and society than what we've been led to believe. Von Ward's ecclectic, impressive background and his ability to ask questions others either fear to ask or never think to ask, only increase the compelling nature of the content. And the content, akin to the Red Pill of the Matrix, will indeed give readers an idea of how deep the rabbit hole goes.
