The #Dogon stories explain that also. According to their oral traditions, a race people from the #Sirius system called the #Nommos visited Earth thousands of years ago. The Nommos were amphibious looking beings that resembled mermen and mermaids. They also appear in Babylonian, Accadian, and #Sumerian texts. The #Egyptian Goddess #Isis, who is sometimes depicted as a mermaid, is also linked with the star Sirius.
The Nommos, according to the Dogon legend, lived on a planet that orbits another star in the Sirius system. They landed on Earth in an “ark” that made a spinning decent to the ground with great noise and wind. It was the Nommos that gave the Dogon the knowledge about Sirius B.
The legend goes on to say the Nommos also furnished the Dogon’s with some interesting information about our own solar system: That the planet Jupiter has four major moons, that Saturn has rings and that the planets orbit the sun. These were all facts discovered by Westerners only after Galileo invented the telescope. The Nommos were #Anunnaki travelers in the distant past and they shared knowledge with the Dogon tribe among others on this planet. #4biddenknowledge
