The Orion Constellation: ANU’s Shepherd And Mankind’s Origins

Why is this pattern of stars repeated in monuments throughout the ancient world? Why did ancient man consider Orion as one of the most important constellation in the sky?

Orion has been very important to ancient man in the past, and these long-lost civilizations payed tribute to the gods of Orion by constructing incredible monuments and placing them in specific locations on Earth mimicking the sky.

Astronomers refer to Orion as M42, but ancient mankind knew about this constellation thousands of years before modern day astronomy, without telescopes such as the Hubble. The questions are how and why?

Orion’s is literally a place where stars are born and astronomers refer to it as a “Stellar nursery”. The Orion constellation is one of the most prominent star formations in the night sky, and is one of the most famous constellations today, easily identified in the clear night sky.

It is named after the Greek demigod Orion in the 8th century B.C. When you connect the stars, they form the head, shoulders, belt and feet of a man. The three major stars in the constellation are Alnilam, Alnitak, and Mintaka which form the belt stars of Orion.

According to Greek mythology Orion was a giant huntsman whom Zeus placed among the stars as the constellation of Orion.

Ancient sources tell several different stories about Orion; there are two major versions of his birth and several versions of his death.

The most important recorded episodes are his birth somewhere in Boeotia, his visit to Chios where he met Merope and was blinded by her father, Oenopion, the recovery of his sight at Lemnos, his hunting with Artemis on Crete, his death by the bow of Artemis or the sting of the giant scorpion which became Scorpio, and his elevation to the heavens.

Most ancient sources omit some of these episodes and several tell only one. These various incidents may originally have been independent, unrelated stories and it is impossible to tell whether omissions are simple brevity or represent a real disagreement.- Wikipedia

Egyptian mythology actually suggests that the gods descended from the belt stars of Orion and Sirius and they believed that from Sirius and Orion came beings in the form of humans, they called them Osiris and Isis, and it was them who actually instigated the human species.

Sirius and Orion are perhaps one of the most important constellation in the night sky, not only for the Greeks and Egyptians, but also for other ancient civilizations in Babylonia, South and Central America and even for Native American tribes in North America.

Is it just a coincidence that the placement of some of the most important monuments on Earth appear to be accurately placed to mimic Orion’s belt in the sky?

How could there be similar structures pointing to Orion built by civilizations located thousands of kilometers apart, who according to modern day scholars were not connected in any way.

Is this an incredible cosmic coincidence, or is there an otherworldly connection to this phenomena, a phenomena that could clarify our very own origins?
