GOD DROVE A SPACESHIP
The Sumerian story of Anunnaki’s “creation” of humans sounds reasonable. They wanted some assistants who were strong and dependent on them (like slave-owning humans), so they genetically domesticated some hominoids for that role (as humans bred the dumb mule). After the spacegods withdrew from physical positions of power over humans, and humans became kings, the human interpreters for the spacegods began to serve as an independent priesthood, who created wishful-thinking cargo cults. The cults were taught to believe that if they did the rituals set out by the priests, gave offerings to them, and prayed to the departed spacegods that they would come back and rule on Earth again (the second-coming myth).
