The Dogon had the presence of mind to actually ask their archaic teachers if they (the teachers) were God. The teachers responded that they weren't, but that if it was helpful for the Dogon to think of them as "agents of God", that would be OK.
Assuming the Dogon mythology has not been mutilated since it's foundation. This is an accurate description of what a missionary, or priest might say, no? I'm interested in what the teachers thought of themselves, just as much as I am of what the Dogon make of the teachers teachings. Even though that's all we have. Sometimes you can gleam information from the smallest observations.
Your responses on this thread are highly provocative, and thought provoking. Would you say that it is highly probable the teachers are of the faith that... there is a God? One creator God. In that sense, isn't is possible the teachers (whoever they were as I doubt they were 'Greys'). Gave us this first inclination, as that in itself seems to be a highly scientific viewpoint of the Universe.
