Escaping from Eden: Does Genesis Teach that the Human Race was created by God or Engineered by ETs?


“When an ultimate frisbee injury laid me up it gave me an opportunity to study up on some of the bizarre anomalies in the stories of Genesis. I thought this might help me produce some more insightful preaching. I did not expect it to lead me to extraterrestrials.”

Paul Wallis would certainly seem an unlikely evangelist for ancient aliens. His background is as a senior churchman in Australia and the UK. Over thirty years he has planted churches, and trained pastors in the history of religious thought and the principles of interpreting the Bible. His previous books have focussed on the relatively safe territory of history and spirituality. Not aliens.

But likely or unlikely, Paul’s latest book Escaping from Eden – does Genesis teach that the human race was created by God or engineered by ET’s is getting attention all around the world. George Noory – host of Coast to Coast and the Godfather of alternative narratives – recently hailed Escaping from Eden as “This generation’s ‘Chariots of the Gods.’”

Paul says, “I read ‘Chariots of the Gods’ when I was 11. It was responsible for kicking off my spiritual journey and sowed the seeds for Escaping from Eden. I take my hat off to Erich Von Daniken (author of Chariots of the Gods) because he is the one who broke the taboo on this topic. Von Daniken took something that had a huge embarrassment factor around it and placed it squarely on the table for mainstream public conversation. People would talk about it at work, at school, in church, over the dinner table. He made us think about the anomalies in our story as homo sapiens. It’s my hope that Escaping from Eden will do the same for a whole new generation.”

So what were the ‘bizarre anomalies’ in the stories of Genesis that diverted Paul Wallis from the safe world of Christian spirituality into the realm of extraterrestrials?


“Any adult who has ever sat down with a Children’s Bible and a child will be familiar with the problems I’m talking about! Read through the stories and any child will ask you, ‘Why does God say “Let us make?” Who’s us? “Let us make the humans to look like one of us?” One of who? Why didn’t God know Adam would need an Eve? Who’s the snake? Where did he come from? Why did God make him? Couldn’t he see what was going to happen? Why do Adam and Eve have to die just because they ate the fruit? Why is God killing everybody with a flood?” “Why is God so angry about a tower being too tall?” and so on…

“Every preacher is familiar with the challenge of trying to extract a positive message from these and many of the Bible’s stories of beginnings. We tend to say to ourselves, ‘Yes, that doesn’t quite make sense. I really must look into that one day!’ And then the busy-ness of life often sucks us away from the questions. I was fortunate finally to find the time to drill down into some of these questions and realise, there’s a whole other layer of story here – a layer that has nothing to do with God – a story about our ancestors’ prehistoric contact with extraterrestrial species.”

In Escaping from Eden Wallis argues that better translation of the ancient Hebrew texts casts the early books of the Bible in a radically different light. What we thought were atrocities committed by the Almighty, according to Paul Wallis, are really the memory of traumas experienced by our ancestors as an alien force colonised Planet Earth in our prehistoric past.


“My research for Escaping from Eden led me to the Mesopotamian narratives of ancient Sumeria, Babylonia, Akkadia and Assyria, to African and Mesoamerican mythologies. They echo themes that can be found in Celtic, Norse, Greek, Indian, Indigenous Australian and Native American narratives.” “All speak of our ancestors’ intersection with extraterrestrial species, who variously colonised, nurtured and exploited our distant ancestors. The memories of all that is buried in the texts of the Bible, obscured by a thin layer of translation.”

If that is the case how could anyone have missed it? The New Testament of the Bible has been around for the best part of two millennia, and the Hebrew Scriptures aka The Old Testament, for the best part of three millennia. Surely three millennia of scholars and devotees couldn’t have missed something as glaring as aliens in the Bible. Wallis argues that their missing it was far from an accident. He argues that decisions made in translation and some carefully chosen ex-communications in the early church effectively made a taboo of our ancestral memory of ET contact.

So are Judaism and Christianity laced with conspiracy?

Sean Stone (son of legendary Hollywood producer Oliver Stone) is an actor and broadcaster not averse to a bit of conspiracy theory. Indeed, he has made a career of pursuing hidden stories not reported on the TV news. Sean describes “Escaping from Eden” as a “courageous” piece of work. And he applauds Paul Wallis for “[giving] us a new perspective on the creation and engineering of man.”

Engineering? Really? Are we talking about human history or Hollywood history? In the world’s mythologies is Wallis finding fiction and turning it into fact?


“For me,” says Wallis, “It’s the correlations among ancient mythologies, the parallels in the narratives of ancient cultures – cultures that had no contact with each other; that’s what has made me consider that these prehistoric stories might really be the vehicles of ancestral memory. Something happened and all these cultures have found an enduring way of preserving its memory.”

After two thousand years of Christian mythology, though, how credible is it that from out of the blue, one random Australian theologian would suddenly work out that everyone else has read the Bible wrong and that he has miraculously decoded it?

“If I were the first person ever to say this, you would be right to raise an eyebrow! But I’m in no way the first to take that view. The idea that human evolution was altered by an ET intervention was implicitly part of the mainstream conversation of Christianity for the first one and half centuries of its existence. Many of the early Church Fathers favoured the view of human origins that I set out in Escaping from Eden- people like Clement of Alexandria, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Origen and Marcion – all foundational to the emergence of Christianity. So you will find I’m in good company!”

Good company in the C1st CE. But how is the thesis of “Escaping from Eden” being received in 2020? Are the various documentaries and interviews around Paul’s theories winning him many preaching invites?

“I am contacted literally every day by people who have been gripped by what I’m putting out in Escaping from Eden. Many write to share their anomalous experiences – close encounters or other experiences that just don’t fit in our conventional boxes. Some are pastors. Some are church people. Some are followers of other religions. Those from a religious background tell me how relieved they are to find a pastor actually acknowledging and talking about their beliefs and experiences.”

“I can think of one person who recently contacted me – a very sober professional man, just retired. He shared with me a close encounter that he experienced when he was 15 years old. It had changed his life. Since the encounter he has told his wife, he has talked to the person who was with him when the event took place, and other than those two people he hadn’t told another living, breathing soul in the fifty years since. He found me on YouTube and wanted to tell me his story because he still needs to process what happened to him and make sense of it. That’s the kind of message I get every day.”

“As a culture we seem to feel so threatened by the idea that humanity might have company that we ridicule and shame people into silence whenever they have something to tell us that might burst that bubble. I hope that Escaping from Eden will burst our bubble so that we can listen to another’s experiences and begin to process what is going on all around us.”

The book will certainly appeal to readers interested in popular science, palaeontology, cosmology or the search for human origins. But will the readership of Escaping from Eden include many of Paul’s preacher and pastor colleagues? Some might accuse the book of striking at the heart of at least two major world-faiths.

“So far I have noticed a few ministry friends on social media go a bit quiet at the mention of possible ET origins. Others jump up enthusiastically and engage. To date, I have had only one colleague say, ‘Paul, let’s stay friends. But I won’t be reading your book.’ Which is a shame because there’s so much more to see if we can learn to look outside of our respective bubbles.”

But do bubble bursting and ministry go together? Is the world ready for another chariot of the Gods?

In answer to this, Wallis points to a surprising moment in the papal ministry of Pope Benedict 16th.

“In ‘Escaping from Eden’ I shine a light on a lot of things that ought to have our attention – things in DNA research, archaeology, palaeontology, neuroscience; things spoken by NASA astronauts; things which ought to clue us about our ET heritage. But Pope Benedict’s Colloquium of 2009 is one of the most significant waving flags. Because here we had the most conservative Pope in my lifetime, gathering some of the world’s top scholars and theologians for a five-day symposium, and then sending them to the press to tell us that we need to be ready ‘sooner than anyone anticipates to embrace a brother or sister alien.’ Senior theologian and director of the Vatican observatory, Revd Dr Guy Consolmagno went so far as to say we shouldn’t be surprised to encounter ET species because they’re in the Bible – in the Old Testament and in the New Testament.”

“When I heard that my jaw dropped. It was only 400 years ago the same institution was burning people to death simply for suggesting there might be intelligent life on other planets – let alone ‘brother or sister aliens.’ Guy Consolmagno said they were in the Bible. So when my ‘ultimate frisbee injury’ allowed me the time to do it, I took up the challenge to test that claim. As a believer for more than 30 years, as a lecturer in Bible interpretation for more than 15 years, could I really have missed aliens in the Bible?”

“My research for the book answered that question for me, loud and clear. From the first two verses of Genesis, an ET presence is hidden in plain sight in the text of the Bible and it doesn’t disappear until the last page of Revelation. For me, this realisation was like taking the Red Pill in the Matrix. A whole new world opens up – a world of hope and possibility. As George Noory says on the book’s cover, it’s about discovering ‘The incredible possibilities of our being.’”

“And once you’ve glimpsed this new world you can’t turn back. The paradigm shift I experienced; that’s my hope for everyone who picks up Escaping from Eden.”

Do you believe in Ghosts? Is this the UK’s most terrifying haunting? Would you stay the night? Read on and decide…

Do you believe that an entity unfathomable to all that we know can interact with ordinary people in the most destructive ways possible? Our science tells us that we should not believe in such things, that these events are simply rational events, explainable as misidentified occurrences or psychological afflictions.

 One house in the sleepy county town of Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, West Wales defies all rationale as a terrifying haunting has ripped apart the lives of many for decades, perhaps a century. The influence of the terror that lurks within those walls has been held accountable for depression, dependency, relationship breakdowns and suicide attempts.

 This ordinary house, nestled near the town centre, has broken the lives of many and has a constant migration of new occupants as each one soon comes under the attack of a most sinister force.

 G.L. Davies, bestselling author of A most haunted house and this new comprehensive account, Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest, lived in the abode briefly in 2003. His life was never the same again and he counts himself fortunate that he escaped the clutches of the house even though he emerged from its grasp dependent on alcohol and suffering all manner of mental maladies.

 Ten years later, he wrote of his experiences in the worldwide number one bestselling account A most haunted house. A most haunted house defied sceptic and believe alike with its honest and emotional account of a prolific haunting coupled with a collapse into agonizing despair.

 In 2017, having been sober for four years and an advocate for mental health support G.L.Davies once again (reluctantly) returned to the home and interviewed a couple who had lived in the same house from 1989 to 1991 and experienced the pure terror that takes hauntings to a new level of intensity.

 Dai and Anne, Pembrokeshire Locals bought the house in 1989 with prospects of starting a comfortable life together with dreams of nurturing a family. What occurred in that assuming house is the stuff of nightmares. Their ideal life turned into a nightmare with the conventional trapping of haunting, cold spots, footsteps, strange smells as the entity that lurked in the shadows began manifesting and mustering a most destructive energy.

 Soon Anne was subjected to visions and nightmares where she would visit the home at the turn of the 19th century and witnessed the most horrendous acts of cruelty and depravity ( too graphic to discuss here) from the occupants that once inhabited that home. Were these dreams and visions merely that or was Anne somehow travelling back in time to witness the origin of the debase evil?

Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest is a scary and atmospheric read whether you’re a sceptic when it comes to the paranormal or not. It’s also perfect for this time of year when the nights are drawing in and getting progressively chiller. Written in the style of an interview it tells of the dark and disturbing events that took place in a house in West Wales, a house that the author has lived in and he adds his account to the narrative. Compelling and at times terrifying, don’t read this in the dark! You simply cannot go wrong if what you’re looking for is an intense and spooky story. Lou TOP 500 reviewer

 Electrical appliances from the home began to malfunction and soon Dai and Anne were receiving communication from their radio set. After a prolonged attempt to dismiss the events as mere rational occurrences they admitted they were, in fact, communicating with an otherworldly being(s). Haunted; Horror of Haverfordwest presents their findings as they recorded the voices from beyond and presents analysis on what may be happening.

 Anne would be the victim of a vile paranormal assault as she lay asleep and as witnessed by her husband and soon the home began to divide them (As it did in A most haunted house) and prey upon their weaknesses.

  Depression took over as the couple began to battle each other, accusations of affairs with family members, allegations that each other were attempting to fabricate the haunting to rid the other one of the home became common behaviour.

 It was not until the sighting of the Angry Man, a near 7-foot presence that would tear through the home in the most terrifying fashion did they pull together and attempt to act. They called upon the services of a well-known and trusted Medium who had been used by the church and the police, who visited the home to attempt a cleansing. The events documented the night of the cleansing broke her to the degree she quickly became ill and died. The medium confessed to her lifelong companion on her deathbed that the entity at the home was something beyond good and evil and that God had not created it and the Devil feared it. Diseased and broken the lady admitted that the house had stripped her of all her abilities and a fate worse than hell awaited her after death. She was terrified, she was afraid of what waited for her. She did not want to die.

 What entity could cause such trauma? Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest presents such incredible detail in the words of those that lived in that house. This is not exaggerated entertainment but the actual documentation of people who lived in that house. G.L. Davies delves deep into their testimonials bringing out all aspects of the haunting, big and small, from the mundane occurrence to the horrific encounters while giving insight into his experience. Accounts like this have no happy endings with both occupants forced to leave the abode and carry the burden of the events there in secret for decades for fear of ridicule and contempt from the sceptical community that has no interest in actually trying to make sense of what happened in that house. Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest will satisfy the sceptic community by presenting a near forty-page summary for explanations from the mundane, to the phycological and to the arcane. This is as complete an account as any paranormal enthusiast could wish for.

 Haunted Horror of Haverfordwest also includes a new edit of the bestselling A most haunted house in which G.L.Davies began his relationship with the paranormal. He now presents to you one of the most complete paranormal testimonials of the 21 century. His account is one of blissful beginnings turning into a nightmare as he and his then-girlfriend are torn apart by the entity at the home. A most haunted house explored their experience of the Angry Man along with testimonials from friends and family that stayed there and witnessed the haunting. What did drive G.L. Davies into the state of depression, what is happening at that humble home in Haverfordwest?

 Davies spent the last ten years convinced that there was a connection between mental health and the paranormal and even attempted to rationalise the events, looking into mobile communication technology that could cause phycological effects that would make a person perceive a haunting. However, he was soon drawn back into the horror when he re-investigated the events of 1989. He is certain ordinary people across the world are now under attack by something different, something more terrifying than demons and evil spirits.

 From 1989 to 2004, Seven couples have lived at the house and 7 couples have left, many broken and separated. The house remains anonymous as the current owners have difficulty selling the property. G.L Davies hopes that he can one day buy back the house that broke him, not to occupy but to offer for scientific investigation. He has said one day when he achieves his goal, anyone who has a copy of Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest will be able to use their book as a key…a key to spending the night there. After reading Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest you may not be so willing to take up his most generous invite.  Whatever resides within those walls, God did not create it and the Devil fears it.

The courage it took to tell a story of the supernatural that drove one to the depths of depression is to be admired. G L Davies accounts are raw, real and riveting 

Jeremy Scott, Into The Parabnormal Radio

A paralogian to the paranormal is like a theologian to theology. A paralogian should have a good understanding of paranormal history, theory, & application. It is clearly evident that G L Davies not only has a real solid understanding of the different kinds of paranormal activity & phenomena people may experience, but he also understands the impact in which that said phenomena can have on an individual’s psychological well being as well as the parasociological implications for the surrounding family unit. G L Davies is a true paralogian through & through. Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest is a testament to that statement & a real pleasure to digest. I enjoyed this immensely.

G L. Davies is up to his old tricks again in his latest book Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest. His nasty detailed and unimaginable horror scenarios will give some readers nightmares. I interviewed G. L Davies on my YouTube Show before and thoroughly enjoyed his previous work 

Kevin Moore, The Kevin Moore Show

At Black Lotus, we pride ourselves in the exhaustive research we put into each of our episodes. Too often, people will not do the necessary legwork and research that is inherently required when investigating the paranormal. They simply parrot what others are saying and offer nothing new. This is why it was such a pleasure to discover G. L. Davies’ Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest. Written as an interview with the previous tenants of the house in which Davies once resided, it is not your typical haunted house story. While maintaining the integrity required of such research, Davies also writes with a human compassion that is rarely found among other paranormal explorers. Amazing work! We loved it!! 

Damian Gray & Ralph Torlucci, Black Lotus Media Productions

G L. Davies has done it again! Having experienced his previous work I can only say that “Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest” is the natural progression to the level of master in development of suspense & the building of shock & disbelief, all leading to the realization that these horrific paranormal experiences truly DO exist! 

Kat Hobson, Paranormal Experienced Radio

G L Davies masterfully brings the terror of living in a real haunted house to life again as he returns to the Horror of Haverfordwest! 

Jason Bland, Paranormal Soup – LNM radio

I had the pleasure of interviewing G. L Davies on my Radio Show many years ago discussing his first book and my listeners and I were left in awe, but I must say that his current book Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest also did not disappoint. It gave me chills as read it and I was unable to put it down as I was led on a journey through this very twisted Paranormal tale. It is a must-read for anyone interested in the Paranormal and this book will definitely be put on my shows “MUST READ”List. 

Christina George, Paranormal Connections Radio Show

Few of us will ever experience the paranormal in our own home. Where a place of sanctuary becomes strange and we fear for our own sanity. G L Davies takes us on a journey through the unknown with extraordinary clarity and humility. Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest will appeal to those interested in the paranormal, as well as those who want to know more about how such experiences can help us grow as a person. Life is for the living, not the dead. 

Claire Elliot, The Claire Witch Files

“G L Davies is a masterful author who, once again, leads the reader through a gripping account of the paranormal. Genuinely worrying and chilling. This is a MUST read and the section on the rationale behind the haunting is worth the read alone. 

Dave Dominguez , – Event Horizon online Radio show

Very creepy retell of what happened in a haunted house when a married couple lived in it for a short period of time in the late 80’s -early ’90s. I am a sceptic, but that does not mean that I could not suspend belief a few times while reading about the horrifying things that happened in that house…

Giulia Naccarato, NetGalley

I could not put this book down. I found the story to be creepy, scary and at times terrifying.  

Jill Long, NetGalley

A creepy ghost story just right for this time of year as the nights draw in. Atmospheric and draws you into the story and the characters 

Tracy Clarkson, NetGalley

Another creepy and scary book to read from GL Davies. This time it follows the story of another couple who lived in The House years before, the things they suffered and how it affected them. The tales are horrific and awful and I couldn’t imagine ever living through what they did. Having lived in Haverfordwest for 18 years of my life, I’m really grateful it wasn’t in this house….and I’m grateful I didn’t know it existed. This is a fantastic read if you want to read a horror that’s real-life….if you’re brave enough to! 

kels_reads, NetGalley

I have just finished reading this book. I still have chills up my spine. I liked the way the story was set out and really got a sense of the terror experienced by Dai and Anne. Whether you are a believer in the paranormal or not, this book is well worth a read.
