In the history of space programs, seven Apollo command module pilots spent time in isolation in lunar orbit while the rest of the crew explored the moon. These astronauts were completely cut off from Earth and the nearest humans had ever been when they were on the far side of the Moon. One of these astronauts was Apollo 15 command module pilot Al Worden who flew to the Moon in July 1971. He is remembered as the “most isolated human being” ever – at times his companions being 3,600 km (2,235 miles) away on the lunar surface. He passed away at the age of 88 on March 18, 2020.
Astronaut Al Worden claimed that we are not alone in the universe. He said there is no doubt there are other living species out there. During his visit to FM’s Ray D’Arcy Show in 2014, he recalled being alone in space for three days during his 1971 mission gave him time to think about the bigger questions in life.
He said, “You see the universe out there and all the stars and you think and you do a little research on the stars. You realize how many there are out there. “There are 400 billion stars in the Milky Way Galaxy alone and there are another 200 billion galaxies. You begin to think ‘All that out there, there’s got to be somebody’.” Asked why he thought we haven’t had any contact from potential extraterrestrials, he quipped: “Why would they want to? They know enough about us not to want to. We’re making a balls of what we’re doing down here.”
Later he reconsidered his thoughts on alien life during his interview with the British TV show “Good Morning Britain.” He without any hesitation said that humans are the ancient aliens who had arrived on Earth in the distant past. When Worden is asked about the possibility that there are extraterrestrials out there, Worden says, “You know, I’ve been asked that question hundreds of times, ‘do you believe in aliens?’ and I say ‘yeah.’
In 2017, on a British TV show, he gave a shocking response when a host asked why to spend a lot of money on space missions when there are lots of problems on Earth. He was asked if he believed aliens were real. The answer probably surprised everyone watching the interview. The former Apollo 15 member said that not only were aliens real, but they had come to Earth in the distant past and created our civilization, and if we wanted to look for evidence, all we had to do was to look at ancient Sumerian literature.
“We are the aliens, but we just think they are somebody else. But we are the ones who came from somewhere else, because somebody else had to survive, and they got into little spacecraft then they came here and landed, and they started civilization here. And if you don’t believe me, go get books on Ancient Sumerians and see what they had to say. They’ll tell you right up front,” Worden added. He died on March 18, 2020.
According to his words, he was the firm believer in the ancient Sumerian scriptures. They reveal that humans and gods used to live together, while humans were servants to gods and each Sumerian city was guarded by its own god. The earliest record of a Sumerian creation myth can be found in a tablet excavated in Nippur, an ancient Sumerian city in Mesopotamia, in 1893.
According to the cuneiform tablets, Earth was ruled by human-like gods at the beginning. When they arrived on Earth, they made it habitable by toiling the soil and mining the minerals. Besides, the text mentioned the revolt between the gods and their laborers.
“When the gods like men
Bore the work and suffered the toll
The toil of the gods was great,
The work was heavy, the distress was.”
It is said before humans, the Anunnaki (a group of deities of the ancient Sumerians, Akkadians, Assyrians, and Babylonians) used the Igigi (sometimes also spelled “Igigu”), the young generation of Ancient Astronaut Gods as their servants to mine gold on Earth, but later, they were replaced by humans when they rebelled against the Annunaki. For the ancient Mesopotamians, heaven is divided into three domes. The lowest dome of heaven was the home of the stars, and the middle dome was the home of the Igigi, the younger gods. The highest and outermost dome of heaven was personified as An, the god of the sky.
Supporting Al Worden’s statement, Dr. Ellis Silver, an author of the book “Humans are not from Earth: a scientific evaluation of the evidence,” has a strong belief that life on earth was sparked by aliens thousands of years ago.
According to him, humans should have become the strongest race in the universe, but the mortal body failed to thrive in the Earth’s environment, it can easily be harmed by sunlight, natural disasters, and diseases. He said: “Mankind is supposedly the most highly developed species on the planet, yet is surprisingly unsuited and ill-equipped for Earth’s environment: harmed by sunlight, a strong dislike for naturally occurring foods, ridiculously high rates of chronic disease, and more.”
Dr. Ellis concluded that mankind did not come from that particular strain of life, but evolved elsewhere and was transported to Earth (as fully evolved Homo sapiens) between 60,000 and 200,000 years ago.
