Mythology describes how beings of great beauty and intelligence, who served as messengers of gods, fell from grace through pride. These angels, also known as Watchers, lusted after human women, lay with them, and fathered giant offspring called the Nephilim. Andrew Collins reveals that these angels were flesh-and-blood members of a race who lived in Egypt (prior to the ancient Egyptians), before leaving the region for what is now eastern Turkey.
Description

About From the Ashes of Angels

Provides convincing evidence that angels, demons, and fallen angels were flesh-and-blood members of a giant race predating humanity, spoken of in the Bible as the Nephilim.


• Indicates that the earthly paradise of Eden was a realm in the mountains of Kurdistan.


• By the author of Gateway to Atlantis.


Our mythology describes how beings of great beauty and intelligence, who served as messengers of gods, fell from grace through pride. These angels, also known as Watchers, are spoken of in the Bible and other religious texts as lusting after human women, who lay with them and gave birth to giant offspring called the Nephilim. These religious sources also record how these beings revealed forbidden arts and sciences to humanity--transgressions that led to their destruction in the Great Flood.

Andrew Collins reveals that these angels, demons, and fallen angels were flesh-and-blood members of a race predating our own. He offers evidence that they lived in Egypt (prior to the ancient Egyptians), where they built the Sphinx and other megalithic monuments, before leaving the region for what is now eastern Turkey following the cataclysms that accompanied the last Ice Age. Here they lived in isolation before gradually establishing contact with the developing human societies of the Mesopotamian plains below. Humanity regarded these angels--described as tall, white-haired beings with viperlike faces and burning eyes--as gods and their realm the paradise wherein grew the tree of knowledge. Andrew Collins demonstrates how the legends behind the fall of the Watchers echo the faded memory of actual historical events and that the legacy they have left humanity is one we can afford to ignore only at our own peril.

"An exciting and original intellectual quest . . . important new facts concerning the mysterious origins of human civilization."
Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods

"A magnificently researched work; its startling conclusions will undoubtedly reverberate over the coming decades."
Nigel Jackson, author of The Horned Piper

"A fascinating piece of research which does much to bring the biblical world of Eden back into the historical spotlight . . . a major contribution to the study of the genesis of civilization."
David Rohl, Egyptologist and author of A Test of Time

"Tracking down angels both heavenly and fallen, Collins’s detective work takes him through entire libraries. . . . His conclusion is that we humans are not the first race to live on the planet. Reading books like this one can be as much fun as reading Conan Doyle or Agatha Christie."
Barbara Ardinger, Whole Life Times, May 2002

"A fascinating and in-depth look at . . . how actual events inevitably evolve into the stuff of indecipherable legend as centuries pass."
