If only the present-day Africans knew and used what their ancients knew, Africa will rise again and rule the world. All over the continent, knowledge beyond scientific calculation and invention is littered – hidden in the shadows of colonialism and centuries of Caucasian and Arab conquering.
Far off in the civilization of West Africa, there lives a tribe of people whose mythology has stirred up a lot of interest around the world. The Dogon, from Mali, has some captivating beliefs, elaborate rituals, and scientific myths.
They believe that they are descendants of the ancient Egyptians and their story goes back further than 50,000 years. Their myths and orally handed down stories, contain actual facts about the solar system and ancient history.
An insight into Dogon myths started when a couple of anthropologists began studying them and became very interested in the astronomical information contained in their story about Sirius (The Dog Star, the sky’s brightest star and a star important to the ancient Egyptians).
The anthropologists reported that the Dogon told them about two companion stars of the Sirius Star (or Sirius A). This was in the 1930s when the details of these companion stars were not fully known.
In 1976, Robert Temple wrote a book about the Dogon and the star, called ‘The Sirius Mystery’. The book then popularized the story and got many people wondering and curious. Temple’s book explained how the Dogon’s beliefs and myths could have come from history. He also connected some of their myths to the ancient Egyptians and Greeks.
The existence of the first companion star (Sirius B) is now common knowledge. It’s said to be a white dwarf, but it isn’t visible to the naked eye. The existence of the second companion star (Sirius C) has not yet been proven, but some studies believe its existence is very possible. The Dogon also apparently have some facts about
But even if the Dogon got their information about the stars from the ancient Egyptians, how did they know about these non-visible phenomena? Scientists and astrologers wonder: even if the Dogon were master astrologers, they could not have not so much.
So, that’s where it gets interesting, because the Dogon has an answer for that too, and shockingly it involves ancient aliens. They tell tales of aliens, who were amphibians and are called “Nommos”. The aliens came down to Earth from the Sirius star system, where their home planet is. This was in ancient times, just when Mesopotamia was rising to life.
The Nommos explained some details of the stars to the Dogon people of those times and they preserved the knowledge to this day. Many anthropologists remain skeptical – but of course, that is to be expected from races who look down on Africans.
The Science of The Sirius Stars
The Sirius star, unlike others, is visible to the human eye. It is still the brightest star in the sky. Although it is 8.6 light-years from Earth, many stargazers from ancient history up to today have watched it.
In fact, it is speculated that ancient Egyptians may have built and aligned their pyramids with Sirius in mind. But it was not until 1862 that astronomers identified a second Sirius star. It was a dwarf sun, and they named it Sirius B. The original larger star was then renamed Sirius A.
Scientists using the Hubble Space Telescope, for the first time, isolated light from the white solar dwarf known as Sirius B orbiting its huge and bright companion, Sirius A, in the constellation Canis Major. The Sirius B was discovered in 1862, and since then, astronomers have been frustrated by the extreme glow of Sirius A which overwhelms their ability to observe and weigh Sirius B.
This breakthrough in astrology was recently published in the Monthly Notices of the ‘Royal Astronomical Society’.
The Mythology of The Dogon
The Dogon tribe of West Africa believes that the origin of creation is a star that revolves around Sirius and is known as the ‘Digitaria star’. They narrate that this star is small, but heavy, and contains the building elements of creation.
Two French anthropologists, Germaine Dieterlen and Marcel Griaule studied the Dogon tribe that lives in an isolated mountain region of Bandiagara, South of the Sahara Desert in Mali, West Africa. Marcel Griaule wrote about their discoveries and findings of the Dogon tribe in his book, “Conversations with Ogotemmeli”, published in 1947.
Ogotemmeli was the Dogon tribe’s oral historian, whom the role was handed down to by his father. He stated that humans were created by beings that genetically engineered our DNA. In fact, he said that human DNA was manipulated three times and that three different versions of humans were designed.
This, he attributed to failed experiments by our creators. They were amphibious aliens from the Sirian star system, who landed on earth with “great noise and wind” on a 3-legged spacecraft. They said these aliens combined their DNA with the DNA of single sexed animals – us.
“The Nummo came from the Sirius star system and resembled serpents, lizards, chameleons,
Isn’t it marvelous that this isolated African tribe has an oral history that claims Mankind was genetically seeded by a race of aliens called the Nummos? And that this race of aliens came from a star system, that only now, with advances in science and orbiting telescopes, can finally confirm the beliefs of an African tribe that originally migrated from Egypt?
So, the big question among some people and astrologers is “How can an isolated tribe, a people with no written history, have scientific information concerning stars light-years away that astronomers are just confirming today?”
Although their planets/stars of origin seem to defer, there are striking similarities between the Nummo and the Annunaki who came to earth and settled thousands of years ago. Ironically, both species of aliens were reported to have been in Egypt approximately 4-5000 years ago. The Nummo and Annunaki races appear in ancient mythology as being dressed as fish or amphibians.
The Dogon, who is an extraordinary tribe from Mali, West Africa, has baffled Nasa Astronauts and well-known Rocket Scientists around the world with their sophisticated and advanced knowledge of the universe.
They are believed to be descendants of Egyptians, who fled religious persecutions, thousands of years to 3200 BC. The Dogon star, which astronomers call Sirius B, wasn’t even seen or photographed until it was done by a large telescope in 1970.
To date, the question remains: “How did the Dogon gain this knowledge thousands of years ago without any known ancient telescopes yet to be found?”
