Appearing during the middle two hours, retired Professor Jack Barranger picked up where Zecharia Sitchin left off to discuss how the Annunaki (alleged ET beings who came to Earth in antiquity) created humanity as a slave race to mine gold for them. These beings, thought of as gods, conditioned humanity to remain ignorant and slave-like, he suggested.
A series of events and fears were created by the Annunaki to keep humans obedient and unquestioning, said Barranger. These included the ousting of Adam & Eve from the Garden of Eden, the destruction of the Tower of Babel, and the threat of hell.
Other "past shocks," included the Great Flood and the passage of Mars close to Earth, both of which created cataclysmic circumstances that left an imprint on mankind. The Annunaki, he noted, left Earth around 800 BC.
The last hour of the show featured Open Lines.
