Who are the Illuminati? There are many ancient myths spanning across different geographic locations which speak of a "Golden Age" when men lived like gods. There was constant climate and temperature, and legends speak of canopy of water vapor around the Earth that made the sun look hazy and protected the surface from the extremes of sunlight. There was no death or suffering as we know it. Human awareness just chose to leave the body and return to the densities of pure consciousness or moved into another body. Legends say that you could communicate with animals. Humans and animals spoke the same language -- it was a global society with a common language of telepathic communication through which people decoded each other's thoughts. The highly advanced cultures of Atlantis and Mu developed during the Golden Age and they were way ahead of where we are now. Sumerian tablets speak of Annunaki, gods who genetically-manipulated humans to become their slaves after arriving here hundreds of thousands of years ago. Sumerians believed they were slaves of the gods. Researcher Lloyd Pye who specializes in human DNA points that the human DNA has more than 4,000 defects compared with only a few hundred in chimpanzees and gorillas. He says that there is evidence of gene segments that have been cut, flipped, and reinserted upside down back into genome. Chromosomes have also been fused together which is why we appear to have two fewer than the higher primates like chimps and gorillas. Such fusions are only seen in laboratories. Modern man was manipulated genetically by the Annunaki gods to be their slaves and given the brain capacity and physical frame to best serve them as administrators and workers. Bright enough to do the jobs required of them but not bright enough to see what was going on. There is a book called "Left in the Dark" written by two scientists who spent 15 years researching human evolution, particularly with regard to the brain. They conclude that the human brain reached the peak of its powers some time in the distant past and then it began to 'devolve.' Brain capacity expanded at an increasingly rapid rate over millions of years and then this expansion suddenly stopped about 200,000 years ago and a brain mass of about 1,440 grams at its peak has since declined to around 1,300 grams. Their findings also correspond with Rebecca Cann who's a professor of Genetics at the University of Hawaii. She co-authored a study which suggests that all modern humans are descended from a single mother who lived in Africa about 200,000 B.C. A group of researchers at the Human Genome Project say that they believe that 97% of DNA coding which is termed as "junk DNA" because they don't know what it does, could be genetic code of extraterrestrial life forms. After comprehensive analysis with assistance of other scientists, computer programmers, mathematicians and other scholars , Professor Chang began to consider if the "junk human DNA" was created by some kind of extraterrestrial programmer. Ancient accounts throughout the world also include the same theme. State of paradise, the Golden Age, being replaced by the "Fall of Man". Following the genetic manipulation, the Annunaki placed hybrid bloodlines with more of their genetics who were to be "royal" bloodlines that would serve their interests among the human population. These "royal" bloodlines is what the "Illuminati" stems from. The 'gods' were going to disappear from human sight and manipulate in the background because if humans didn't know they were being controlled there could be no opposition or rebellion against the 'gods' they didn't know existed. The hybrids were taught advanced knowledge by the Annunaki across many fields such as astronomy, mathematics and technology and this knowledge was kept from people as much as possible using secret societies, oaths and language. The hybrid 'royal' bloodlines of the gods were symbolized by emblems in the form of a dragon, snake, sphinx and depicted as half-human and half-serpent. These are the bloodlines known as the Illuminati.
