satanism today and tomorrow

Andrey Sklyarov on the Material Evidence of Satan, Lucifer and the Gods of Paganism


There are such rare people whom I like to call de-facto Satanists. They don't claim to be Satanists, but they reinvent the Satanic phylosophy by themselves and, which is way more important, the things they are doing in their life make so much benefit for Satanism as hardly anyone of us could do.

One of such persons was Andrey Sklyarov, who searched and found the material facts that underlie our notions of Lucifer, Satan and the Pagan gods.

Andrey Sklyarov was studying the ancient mythology for his whole life, but with an approach different from the traditional one. With his degree in experimental physics and work experience in aerospace industry, he analyzed the myths from the scientific and engineering viewpoint. This led him to the results that could not be achieved with the classical humanitarian approach, because historians usually lack any knowledge of engineering and technology and therefore cannot really understand, how the things were being done and what was technically possible in the ancient times. Sklyarov worked as the leader of a team of engineers in different areas, which gave him opportunities to find what the traditional historians did not notice.


In 2003-2016 Sklyarov and his colleagues organized several expeditions to Egypt, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia and some countries of the Middle East. Their goal was to study the ancient structures and monuments from the viewpoint of technologies that could be used for their construction. They found that some ancient structures, which are traditionally attributed to Bronze Age cultures, actually required a significantly more advanced level of technology to be built.

At least three of the pyramids of Egypt (the ones of Khufu, Khafra and Menkaure) are oriented towards the cardinal directions with the presision of several arc minutes, which would be unachievable for the measurement instruments that the ancient Egyptians could have [9]. The stones, of which these pyramids are built, are perfectly trimmed with a sub-millimeter precision, which is also beyond the technical abilities of a Bronze Age culture. Moreover, on some of the buildings attributed to the ancient Egyptians, one can see the marks left after circular saws, involute gear cutters, and other tools of an industrial civilization rather than antique handicraft [10][11][12]. The hypothesis of modern falsification can be excluded in many cases, because the modern tools that can leave such marks are often stationary machines that would be impossible to bring onto the site (for example, into the internal corridors of the pyramids) [5].

In Peru and Bolivia, Sklyarov's team studied the objects that are traditionally attributed to the Inca culture. These structures also appeared to have the sub-millimeter precision of stone processing, as well as a complicated curvilinear form of the stones, which even exceeds the capabilities of our modern technology in some cases. The local people have legends saying that in the ancient times there was a technique of softening the stone and sculpting it into any shape that it preserved after hardening back [13].

In the Middle East, Sklyarov's expeditions found that some ancient structures that are traditionally attributed to the Romans (the temples of Baalbek, for example) contain stone blocks weighing more than 1000 tons. Mechanisms for lifting such weights were invented first in the 20th century [14][15].

What is also significant is the fact that the ancient structures that are proven with documents to be built by the Greeks, Romans, etc. never have any traces of unusually advanced technologies [5].

The material collected in the expeditions led Sklyarov to the conclusion that an industrial-level civilization existed on Earth in the pre-antique times (10000 — 3000 BCE); the technologies of this civilization exceeded even our present level in some areas.

Only the ancient mythology has some information on this civilization. The myths call it the Gods and attribute the construction of the objects, where Sklyarov's team found the traces of advanced technologies, to the Gods.

The origins of that civilization ("the Gods") are a subject for discussion, but its existence can be already considered a proven fact.

Sklyarov defends the assumptions that those known as the Gods in the mythology are an advanced extraterrestrial civilization that visited Earth in the distant past, i.e. there was a paleocontact. Our civilization developed under the influence of the alien Gods. Sklyarov states the following arguments in favor of the extraterrestrial origin of the Gods:
– all the myths say that the Gods live in the sky and come from there;
– the myths say that the Gods have a lifespan of several millennia; this is unprecedented for any species on Earth, but is a must for a civilization that practices interstellar flights if faster-than-light travel is really impossible;
– the kinds of gifts that the Gods demanded from people, according to the myths, show that, although the Gods were able to digest usual human's food, their physiology was to some extent different from humans;
– the 260-day Mayan calendar used to be attributed to the Gods, but it could not have any practical sense on Earth; it's rather suitable for another planet with a 260-day orbiting period [1].

One of the main objections to the idea of aliens as the Gods of Paganism is our tendency to imagine the life on another planet as something totally different from what we see on our Earth. What are the chances that a sentient extraterrestrial species can be similar to us, just like the Gods as they were pictured by ancient people? In 1970s, the Soviet biologist Sergey Meyen supposed (and proved it for some groups of species) that the diversity of possible life forms is limited [16]. This is chemistry that sets the limits: the ability to form any advanced biological structures depends on the chemical properties of the substances they are formed of. Therefore, this is not only possible, but even highly probable, that a sentient life on another planet has a humanoid form, because it can even be the only chemically possible form for an intelligent living creature.

Nonetheless, despite that the level of technologies of the civilization of the Gods by the time of their arrival on Earth (approx. 13000 years ago) exceeded even our present level, their voyage seems to be totally unprepared:
– they did not have anything for producing food for themselves, and had therefore to improvise with what they could find here;
– their buildings here were made using the technologies and tools for some other purposes than construction (certainly, a civilization practicing long-distance space flight should know some more advanced methods than just pile up stone blocks without cement);
– we cannot find any remains of infrastructure for manufacturing the tools for the technologies of the Godson Earth; this means that they probably did not plan to stay here for long [2].

The only explanation the myths give us is that the Gods were refugees escaped to Earth after the failure of their rebellion. We know the leader of that rebellion under the name Lucifer (as well as many other names).

The probable reason for the Gods to interfere in the life of humanity is the necessity for them to find food on a planet with an environment where they were able to survive, but not to follow their usual lifestyle. The myths of all peoples insist that it was the Gods who forced us to practice agriculture. The history of agriculture contains some totally unnatural events and aspects (here Sklyarov refers to the works of Nikolai Vavilov):
1) Many kinds of crops started to be grown far away from the regions where these crops came from. For example, wheat grows in the wild in what is now Syria and south-eastern Turkey, but people started to cultivate it first on the Ethiopian Highlands and in the Indus Valley, where wild wheat never grew.
2) Sometimes the agricultural sorts of plants have differences from their natural ancestors on the chromosomal level, which could not be a result of simple selection without any genomic manipulations, which we discovered first in the 20th century. For example, wild wheat has 14 chromosomes, while different sorts of agricultural wheat have either 28 or 42.
3) The strangest aspect in the early agriculture is the choice of cereals as the plants to cultivate [1].

Cereals are extremely impractical compared to other possible options:
– quite mediocre in prolificness and nutritional value;
– requiring much elaborate post-processing;
– deficient in some chemical elements necessary for human nutrition – first of all, iron [3].

Despite all of this, humans do universally consume such an unsatisfactory product.

What is the most prominent feature of cereals? This is one of the few groups of plant species that contains copper in vast amounts. If some biological species needs much copper, but almost no iron, for nutrition – it would have a cereal-based diet. Human is certainly not such a species. However, on another planet such species could exist [3]…

If on the home planet of the Gods iron is a rare metal while copper is widespread (as Sklyarov proves, it will be so on a planet without any volcanic activity), the biochemical processes in species on this planet will be based on copper instead of iron. Even on Earth, some species with copper-based physiology exist: these are mollusks, spiders, and crustaceans. Instead of the iron-based hemoglobin, they have a copper-based respiratory protein – hemocyanin. However, iron is way more common on Earth than copper; this is why the majority of animal species have hemoglobin or some other iron-based oxygen transport protein [3].

What is worth noticing in this regard, is the concept of "blue blood" and the Indian tradition to depict the Gods with the blue skin color. The blood that contains hemocyanin or some other copper-based respiratory protein is really of blue color, similarly to many other compounds of copper [3].

However, hemocyanin has a serious disadvantage compared to hemoglobin: it is less effective in transporting carbon dioxyde. Even if the Gods have some other copper-based respiratory protein instead, it will suffer of this too, due to the chemical properties of copper and iron [3].

Therefore, if the Earth atmosphere contains more carbon dioxyde than the one of the home planet of the Gods (which is highly probable, because the carbon dioxyde is mostly produced by volcanoes rather than living organisms), they need to consume something that increases the capability of their blood to carry the carbon dioxyde out. One of such means is alcoholic beverages, and the myths say much about the Gods liking them, as well as that it was the Gods who taught people to produce wine and beer [3].

An important detail in the myths that is still difficult to interpret is their saying that the Gods created humans. Certainly, even a super-advanced civilization cannot create something out of nothing. We have already found sufficiently much remains of our evolutionary ancestors to completely exclude any kind of Bible-based creationism. However, some kind of limited interference in the human genome may have been possible. Was this interference the factor that made us sapient? It's not necessarily so; some myths even say that humans were created to be servants of the Gods [2]. Also, archeological finds show that our civilization started to develop millennias before the supposed time of arrival of the Gods. Can the things be the contrary, i.e. that the Gods disabled some abilities of proto-human that did not suit them? This cannot be excluded at our present level of knowledge. However, the Gods' interference could have been minimal; for example, just establishing some social institutions and moral norms for the interaction of humans with the Gods.

The myths often mention that the Gods that established the first states as social structures for producing food for the Gods. They were the rulers of those early states, and even many millenia after this some royal dynasties kept on claiming to be descendants of the Gods [2].

The other important cultural achievement that is attributed to the Gods in the myths is writing. The earliest writing systems of Egypt, China, and the Americas show so much similarity that they probably have a common ancestor, which could be the writing system of the Gods. In the beginning, all writing systems were build on the principle of ideography, i.e. each symbol denote the meaning of a word rather than pronunciation. The unified ideographic writing system made it possible for people speaking different languages to understand each other – the same way as now the speakers of Mandarin and Cantonese can communicate in the written form although they don't understand each other's spoken language. Sklyarov supposes that this was what the myth on Babel tower meant [4].

Surely, such a revolution in people's lifestyle as the introduction of agriculture and states must have led to serious changes in their languages. There should be new words created for the things that came in people's life due to the interference of the Gods. Now, linguists suppose the relationships between distant languages due to similarities of agricultural terms in them. However, if agriculture was imposed on ancient people by the Gods, the corresponding words can have been borrowed from the same source, maybe even the language of the Gods [4].

The myths also attribute the development of metallurgy to the Gods, but only for copper and bronze. Iron was first discovered by human civilization much later and without any alien influence. This means that, although the Gods were vastly superior in their knowledge and technologies, they were not aware on some things that we learned already in the Antique times. It can be so because on the home planet of the Gods iron is too rare to find such a wide practical application that it has for us [3].

Anyway, much of the knowledge that the civilization of the Gods possessed is beyond the understanding even for us today, to say nothing about ancient people. The myths try to explain what people saw when dealing with the Gods, but it's difficult to find a correct interpretation of it. For example, what can the myths mean when they say about flying dragons? It could be aircraft of the Gods, since some myths say that those dragons were made of metal, and the Indian texts openly say about flying machines (vimana). From the Indian myths we know also about the weapons of the Gods, which had a great destructive power. The description of the effects of using these weapons sounds much similar to the effects of our nuclear weapons [2].

As already mentioned, the civilization of the Gods left many megalithic structures that would be impossible to build with the tools and methods known to ancient people. The purpose of these buildings is still unclear. There is no reason to assume a religious or funerary usage for the pyramids and other megalithic buildings. Hundreds of mummies were found in Egypt, and none of them in a pyramid; nor were any identified burials of pharaohs found there [5].

Sklyarov supposes that the megalithic structures could have some technical and industrial purposes. For example, the layout of the internal corridors in the pyramids was not designed for a human to visit them, since the height in some places is about 1 m [5].

However, the most mysterious question regarding the Gods is why they don't seem to be here anymore. One possible answer can come from the myths about the War of the Gods, known also as War of the Devas and the Asuras, or the War of the Olympian Gods and the Titans. Many myths of different folks tell us about this war, and all of them side with one of the faction, which they call the Good, while the opposite side is viewed as the Evil.

This was a war of mutual annihilation. One of the reasons for it (the most important for us, but maybe not for the Gods) was the views on the policy on humans. The "Evil" faction (Asuras, or Titans) did not mind to give their knowledge to people, while the "Good" ones wanted to keep people as servants of the Gods forever [2][4]. We know the leader of the "Evil" side under the name Satan (as well as many other names).

Unfortunately for us all, the "Good" side won. The result was not just the end of any knowledge transfer from the Gods, but also a direct prohibition on using some things that people had learned before; this is the sphere of knowledge that we call magic now [2][4].

Religion as we know it appeared already after the War of the Gods; instead of direct communication with the Gods people started to worship them. It's important to notice the Paganism is a cult of the "good" Gods; there was no "Dark Paganism" in the ancient times – this is a modern hybrid. Also, much of what people now mean under Paganism is the things that those Pagan gods prohibited [2].

In addition to worshiping the Gods, first cargo-cults appeared around the artifacts of the Gods that accidentally had come into humans' hands. Sklyarov supposes that the Ark of the Covenant was one of such artifacts, because the rites that the Old Testament prescribes to commit with them look like packing some fragile equipment for shipping. The legends of the Holy Grail are probably saying about another artifact of the Gods [8].

Much later, when the myths were already the only remaining information on the Gods, the monotheism appeared. This was an artificially created type of religion – the cult of a god that never existed and was made up for purely political purposes [2]. In this fictional deity most people believe today.

The most important in Sklyarov's work is that he was not just another interpreter of mythology, but linked the information from the myths to the material facts – the megalithic buildings, and proved that only an advanced civilization was able to create them, not the Bronze Age craftsmen [5][6][7]. Therefore, much of what used to be the field of religion or occultism starts to be an object of scientific studies now – including Satan, Lucifer, and those who we know as the gods of Paganism.
