In his quest to comprehend the early origins of "Anomalously Sensitive Persons (ASPs)" — those who are unusually sensitive in a variety of realms — David Ritchey found that the theory of creationism and the theory of evolution both had serious shortcomings.  He decided, therefore, to pursue his inquiry from the perspective of the theory of interventionism, as espoused by Zecharia Sitchin and others, which is grounded in the history of civilization as delineated by the ancient Sumerians.

 

REVIEWS

           Can you think "outside the box"? In this book, "Descended from the Gods", Mr. Ritchey offers the possibilities of "what if" to present an argument for the "missing link" in the ongoing investigation of human evolution and the origins of what he terms as the "anomalously sensitive person". Though there is no definitive "scientific proof", Mr. Ritchey's theory is supported by his well documented research on the sensitive person, legends and ancient texts.

           I found this book to be a fast read simply because I could not put it down. You will be amazed at the logic. It is as entertaining as it is enlightening. Wow!

The text of Ritchey’s tight distillation of the very complex material from Zecharia Sitchin’s and others’ work on a radically different view of human origins is a very fast read. Not a wasted word.
In my estimate he makes his case well that the connection between anomalously sensitive persons throughout history and a group of very tall off-planet humanoids, the Anunnaki is robust. Much circumstantial evidence of course (after all, he’s extrapolating from events 250,000 years ago when homo sapiens first showed up – quite suddenly -- on the planet). But there’s a mountain of circumstantial evidence. . .to the point of overwhelm. I’m very familiar with Sitchin’s work and much of the large opus of The New Archaeology and New Paleontology and found Ritchey on the money, never overstating or distorting a thing.
If you have no background in Sitchin’s work, the Anunnaki, the whole large edifice of work showing that most of what we’re taught about human origins is just wrong, you may find Ritchey’s valiant Chapter Two attempt to summarize the more accurate scenario challenging. So many big differences from the mainstream view; so few words. If your brain goes kattywampus with big questions, I urge another fascinating and easy read to fill in any blanks: Sitchin’s Genesis Revisited.
Welcome to the world they didn’t tell you about.
