Immortality of the Gods

Nick Redfern add to his already extensive catalogue with this wide-ranging speculative thesis: what if there were a real connection between the alien visitations and many of the world’s ancient legends and mysteries? He analyses the characteristics of the great men and mighty heroes of the past and asks whether it might be feasible to reproduce their powerful abilities and apparent immortality with modern medicine and technology. Of course vast, (supposedly) secret conspiracies by militaryintelligence agencies are brought into it, as Redfern claims that one of the reasons for invading Iraq in 2003 (the home of the Babylonian hero Gilgamesh and Sitchin’s alien Anunnaki) was to recover an ancient formula for a form of white gold said to rejuvenate human cells. An amusing and perhaps provoking read.
