The Snake Man in Ancient Myths of Africa

According to the mythology of the Dogon Tribe in Mali, Africa, the union of God and earth created the Nummo twins, male and female, half human and half snake. The twins, claims Laird Scranton in The Science of the Dogon, represented the ideal coherence of spirit and matter. They taught man how to weave from the spiraling coils of fibers. The garment thus woven was called "the First Word". It was the Nummo twins as well that taught man the skills of civilization—agriculture, architecture, symbolic language. In fact, Scranton reveals that the Dogons who lived around 3400 B.C. were familiar with 21st Century science. Particle physics, the relationship between light and time, the uncertainty principle, genetics, cell mitosis and more have for centuries been part of the Dogon culture , a situation that alludes to the possible extraterrestrial origins of the Nummo twins.

The Snake Man in Ancient Myths of Babylon

Half man, half fish or serpent, Oannes rose from the sea. According to ancient myths, he had two heads, one human, and one fish. He had both human feet and fish tail. Despite the monstrosity of his appearance, he spoke human language and taught the Babylonians civilizing skills -- writing, arts, sciences, the establishment of laws, geometry, agriculture and the civility of manners.

The Dogons

The Dogons are a people well known by their cosmogony, their esotericism, their myths and legends that interest foreigners at the highest point in search for culture or tourism.
The population is assessed to be about 300,000 people living in the South West of the Niger loop in the region of Mopti in Mali (Bandiagara, Koro, Banka), near Douentza and part of the North of Burkina (North west of Ouahigouya).
The Dogon's (Mali, Africa) homeland has been designated a World Heritage site for its cultural and natural significance. They are also famous for their artistic abilities and vast knowledge about astrology, especially the Sirius star, which is the center of their religious teachings. The Dogons know that Sirius A, the brightest system in our firmament, is next to a small white dwarf called Sirius B, which was not identified by western scientists until 1978. The Dogons knew about it at least 1000 years ago. Sirius B has formed the basis of the holiest Dogon beliefs since antiquity.
Western astronomers did not discover the star until the middle of the nineteenth century, and it wasn't even photographed until 1970.

The Dogons go as far as describing a third star in the Sirius system, called "Emme Ya" that, to date, has not been identified by astronomers. In addition to their knowledge of Sirius B, the Dogon mythology includes Saturn's rings and Jupiter's four major moons. They have four calendars, for the Sun, Moon, Sirius, and Venus, and have long known that planets orbit the sun.
How this Dogon's Enigmatic Scientific Knowledge about Astronomy came from?
According to their oral traditions, a race people from the Sirius system called the Nommos visited Earth thousands of years ago. The Nommos were ugly, amphibious beings that resembled mermen and mermaids. They also appear in Babylonian, Accadian, and Sumerian myths. 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 !
