    H Y B R I D H U M A N S UNITEJoin pioneers in extraterrestrial research OTTO O. BINDER and MAX H. FLINDT as they take Darwin to task on what they call one damning exception to his Theory of Evolution: the creature called Man.

    First published in 1974 as Mankind, Child of the Stars, this ground-breaking work caused waves of controversy throughout the scientific community. In light of todays growing evidence of life beyond Earth and the ever-evolving archeological record, and with a foreword by Chariots of the Gods author ERICH VON DNIKEN, this seminal works claim that modern humans are hybrids of early humans and extraterrestrial beings rings truer than ever before.

    We Are the Children of the Stars reveals:

    Earth has been visited more than 5,000 times by creatures from other planets!

    Evidence that starmen deliberately hid any missing link human fossils in order to keep humankind from knowing it was a colony!

    Clues in the evolutionary record, along with hidden evidence in fossils, human reproduction, and the advancement of our brains.

    OTTO O. BINDER (19111974) was a prolific author whose work spanned from educational astronomy texts to comic books, being best known for his Captain Marvel series and for creating the character Supergirl. In 1963 he was awarded an honorary masters degree in astronautical science by NASA. He was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame posthumously in 2004.

    MAX H. FLINDT (19152004) was the son of pioneering science-fiction writer Homer Eon Flint. Max spent his life dedicated to independent scientific research. He worked at numerous prestigious laboratories, including Lockheed where he was engaged in highly classified space research. He was the first person to ever scientifically document from biological evidence the possibility that humankind may be a hybrid of terrestrial humanoids and starmen. A fearless researcher, Flindts legacy is one of lasting controversy and his work has been the basis for further exploration on the topic by many prominent members of the UFO community.

  • Forewordby Erich von Daniken

    What exactly is a scientist? A person who has run the course of a prescribed education and then belabors a certain discipline with scientific methods. The scientist becomes a specialist in his particular field when he engages in certain activities for several years, remains informed in his area of research, and, if possible, publishes something of his own in it.

    The flow of information is so immense in the age of the media that every scientist is obliged to specialize. No one can any lon-ger be sufficiently informed about everything. On the one hand, specialization leads to magnificent results, such as computer tech-nology, landings on the moon, nuclear fusion. On the other hand, however, it harbors the danger of a simplistic perspective that, with the abundance of directed information, can lead to appar-ently well-founded yet erroneous conclusions.

    Anthropology and prehistory are closely linked. The prepa-rations for both branches of human knowledge run parallel up to the borderline that separates the specialists. The goals are well defined, the outcome predetermined by the training. The literature of predecessors to be consumed remains erratic while pointing the way to be taken. Where, then, is a well-ordered, concentric search for truth to be found?

    Our historical past is composed of indirect knowledge. Discoveries of bones and tools, cave drawings, and so on, are incorporated into a research hypothesis. The jigsaw puzzle then becomes an impressive, interesting mosaic; but it is based on a preconceived notion into which all parts can be fitted although

    the putty is at times all too clearly visible. Either, or . . . there is but one way. And that is it. But there we are; if one is willing to accept it, that is exactly the way it was supposed to be.

    The scientific community is, in many respects, a secretive soci-ety. Its individual members know something, but they are not at all concerned about the fact that their one-sided information may merely give them the impression of being knowledgeable. And if their knowledge is ever attacked, familiar human defense reac-tions are set in motion: ridicule, arrogance, and the struggle for respect. After all, it is impossible that both parties could be right, assailant and assailed. And who wants to admit that he is wrong?

    In this regard, the famous scientific community is actually a rather disjointed conspiracy. It has a restraining and destructive effect on new, possible truths. An unbiased attitude and objectiv-ity are certainly promised but not practiced. Not one of us is ever completely objective, neither prosecutor nor defender. Special-ization has made both camps far more subjective.

    This book provides detailed evidence for the fact that Homo sapiens is not the product of natural evolution, and that human intelligence is not the result of a spontaneous mutation. Tradi-tions, religions, and myths do, in fact, enable us to deduce that unknown beings gods created man in their image. Gil-gamesh, in the Sumeric epic, is two-thirds human, one-third god. Noah, the biblical survivor of the Deluge, was, according to the Lamech scroll found near the Dead Sea, the Guardian of Heaven (of the Skies). The patriarch Enoch, who lived before the Del-uge, unmistakably establishes this relationship between gods and men (Book of Enoch, Chapter 15):

    Say unto the Guardians of Heaven . . . why have you forsaken the high, holy heaven above, lain with women, soiled yourselves with the daughters of man, taken wives as did the sons of the earth and sired giants? . . . You have . . . lusted for the blood of man and brought forth flesh and blood as do those who are mortal and perishable.

    Can one, objectively speaking, overlook such crystal-clear pas-sages? And around the globe, mythologies are filled with similar evidence.

    I am one of those who must daily face arguments denying a visit by gods from our galaxy. The attacks are formulated in a particularly reasonable fashion, and behind them lurks knowl-edge as profound as gaping gullets. For scientific depth is one-dimensional. Its counterarguments are rooted in previous (literally, up-till-now) learning, previous translations, previous archeology, previous paleontological findings, previous dating methods, previ-ous space travel. Interrelationships between all fields of knowl-edge and the easily anticipated technological future are never established.

    In my correspondence, and in public, I debate with scientists. Our verbal battles are fair and honest. Yet they are not objective. Paleontologists generally know too little of mans record. And what they have never heard of they are not interested in. Myths and old books are rejected as fairy tales. They are terribly sure of themselves.

    Can we, from an objective standpoint, simply ignore the old scriptures? Science should always get as close as possible to the truth. In the case here presented, the discovery of truth is rendered impossible by the mania for specialization. Thus, scientists can be accused of holding a channeled view vide their lack of knowledge in mythology.

    And should someone raise the objection that our primitive ancestors saw God in nature in clouds, lightning, thunder, earthquakes, volcano eruptions, the sun, the stars, and natural catastrophes this comfortable view in no way rhymes with the cave paintings that make no gods of natural events. And how dare chroniclers assure us that the gods created man in their image? If God was believed to be a natural event, the most stupid of our ancestors could not have thought of himself as Gods image. And those who thousands of years ago mastered the art of writing were not of the dumbest kind.

    May the debates evoked by this book make tumultuous waves. I know of no work since Darwins that deserves as much attention regarding the evolution of man.

    A Step Into the FutureThis book is concerned with the strong possibility almost a probability, in our measured opinions that mankind on Earth may have had superintelligent ancestors from outer space. Man may therefore be a hybrid, partly of terrestrial origi
