Day of the Fish by Shannon Dorey
In Day of the Fish Dorey reveals that the amphibious Nummo were the goddesses known to the people of the Neolithic and Paleolithic ages. Many of the Dogon symbols identified with the Nummo were the same symbols that the archeologist Marija Gimbutas associated with the goddessses of Old Europe. The Nummo and Nummo Ancestors were identified with serpents and fish. They were amphibians like frogs. The Eight Ancestors, who were part human and part Nummo, had “wide open eyes” suggestive of frog type eyes. Images of frogs, toads, fish, and salamanders appear in many of the goddess artefacts of Old Europe. The goddess Artemis was worshiped as a toad in Egypt, Italy, and Lithuania. According to Marija Gimbutas, the Sheela Na gig (shown at top left), a figure which has been found incorporated into old churches in medieval Ireland and England, was none other than the ancient frog or toad goddess, the birth giver and regeneratrix inherited from the Neolithic. This particular image is a 12th-century AD Sheela Na gig from St. Mary’s and St. David’s Church, Kilpeck, Herefordshire, England.
Dorey has also found similarities between the Dogon religion and what was known of the religion of the Jomon people of Japan who were Mesolithic-Neolithic hunters and gatherers from about 14,000 to 300 BCE. The Shakoki-dogu (1000–400 BCE) from the Tokyo National Musum is shown at left with its frog eyes.
Dorey's research reveals that our current theories about history are based on propaganda perpetrated by the Inquisition and the Roman Catholic Church beginning in the early Middle Ages. The Albigensien Crusade publicly destroyed this religion in Europe but it was still practised in secret by some groups. This image of Mary Magdalene by George de La Tour shows her with a red skirt in the shape of a fishtail, which Dorey says is very telling. Red was a colour associated with the Nummo and the divine feminine in the Dogon religion. According to the Dogon, the amphibious alien beings known as Nummo were the ancestors of humanity.
Dorey believes that the Dogon religion provides us with the real history of our past and that falsehoods about our history do not prepare people for the future. According to the Dogon, the Nummo were to one day return to Earth. The day of the Nummos' return was known to the Dogon as the "Day of the Fish."
