Overview

We are not alone. And we never have been.

For years we've been taught that human progress has been a long, slow climb from the primordial ooze to hunter-gatherers to empires. But what if that's only part of the story?

Bestselling author and legendary conspiracy researcher Jim Marrs now takes on his biggest subject: the history of humankind. Offering mind-blowing information that will radically alter the way we think about the world and our place in it, Marrs goes beyond the revelations of his classic Alien Agenda, interweaving science and authentic archaeological finds with provocative speculation to show how human civilization may have originated with nonhumans who visited earth eons ago . . . and may still be here today.

Marrs sifts through the historical, scientific, and cultural record, showing how numerous ancient texts and tablets tell of visitors from the stars colonizing the earth. From the flying vimanas of the Hindu Vedic literature and the flying shields reported by the Romans to the mysterious airships of the 1800s and the UFOs of today, he argues that someone other than us is still present on this planet. But are these visitors simply observers—or do they play a much more active and controlling role? Jim Marrs raises this shocking question and more in the provocative and persuasive Our Occulted History.

The truth is out there . . .

An Art Bell–like exercise in conspiracy theory. Fans of Rowdy Roddy Piper's John Carpenter romp They Live (1988) know the setup: "conventional science, and perhaps even institutions administered by the federal government or funded by the wealthy elite, has worked to conceal our possible true heritage." Noting the weasel words "perhaps" and "possible," what might that heritage be? Well, children, we're all stardust, and in the weirdness of our DNA--so much of which, conspiracy theorist Marrs (The Rise of the Fourth Reich: The Secret Societies that Threaten to Take Over America, 2008, etc.) writes, is made up of a useless, redundant nothingness of dead code--we may just harbor clues to a time when strange critters called the Anunnaki strode the Earth. Or maybe most of us are just meat for the overlords, who are biding their time--and maybe the "wealthy elite" and their minions are really the Anunnaki in disguise. After all, you knew Mitt Romney acted a little weirdly and robotically up there on the hustings, didn't you? Throughout this book, which P.T. Barnum would have loved, Marrs throws every conspiracy theory he can at the problem, from the "occulted" existence of a 10th planet in the solar system (the masters don't want you to know about that, of course) to alchemy and the hidden history of gold. The result is an odd sort of populism, whereby we earthlings are urged to rebel against our corporate overlords and their "millennia-long agenda of attempting to subjugate the human population." Huzzah! To call this hokum is to malign that useful word. Suffice it to say that Carpenter's film is a hell of a lot more fun.

This book, along with a handful of others, have proven to me that the government hides the facts we all want to know. The fact that they go so far as to threaten people and their families to keep the secret safe in the name of "National Security" proves to me that it DOES exist. It is no longer a question for me.

This man (and I use that term very loosely) is an Antichrist! He denies the Truth of the Bible and claims the opposite is truth. Well, in the Bible such an one is called an "Antichrist!" (1 John 2:18,22). Do NOT read or buy this man's book unless you want to be a participant in the garbage known as the "ancient alien gospel." I'm throwing out any books I own by this apostate! I gave it a star because you have to rate it. If no star were possible, he would have got that!
