After many years of studying the Dogon religion, Dorey has uncovered the mystery behind its symbols. A mystery that she maintains was stamped out in most places of the world by the Inquisition and the Roman Catholic Church. Dorey explores the key symbols of the Dogon religion, which she believes are from the world's first religion, and which are found throughout the ancient world. She follows the Dogon religious symbols from Old Europe to Japan and from Australia to the Americas to reveal the lost history of humanity.

According to the Dogon, the amphibious alien beings known as Nummo are the ancestors of humanity. Dorey's book reveals that these hermaphroditic beings, who were identified with the sacred feminine, were the Goddesses known to the people of Old Europe. Dorey feels that it is important for everyone to know about this religion because there is a spiritual component to it that needs to be explored and understood. Dorey feels that current theories that perpetuate falsehoods about history, do not prepare people for the future.

The First Religion

The day of the Nummo's return was known to the Dogon as the "Earth of the Day of the Fish". The good Earth that the Nummo provided was to progressively extend itself over the Fox's Earth.The regeneration of the land was tied to the regeneration of humanity, and the Nummo believed that humans would find their way back to truth and immortality. "Humans after regeneration must be drawn towards the ideal as a farmer is drawn to rich farmland."

My research reveals that the African Dogon religion is the pagan mystery religion spoken about by the ancient Greeks, Celts, Romans, Egyptians and others, and which was thought to have been lost to humanity. I believe that this religion, still practised by the Dogon people in the 1930s and recorded by the anthropologists Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen, is the most important historical source document we have left in the world. This document, which records an oral religion that comes from the beginning of human civilization, reveals the truth about our existence.

Most of us have spent a great deal of time searching for the truth. This is because we inherently know that there is something missing from our existence. The time I have spent studying the Dogon religion has made me realize just how much of the truth has been taken from us and how new realities have been manufactured that are widely believed in today. I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with George Orwell's book 1984, but my research on the Dogon has reminded me of that book on more than one occasion. For those of you unfamiliar with the book, it is about a repressive, totalitarian regime that falsifies historical records in order to keep control over society. I believe that our own reality of truth is much like the individuals living in Orwell's book. The falsifying of our past has been an ongoing process and there have been many culprits along the way. One of the biggest is the Roman Catholic Church, whose oppression of other beliefs has been occurring since 391 CE, when the worship of any religion but Christianity was made illegal in the Roman Empire. In my view, the Dogon people have been the keepers of the truth, a truth that was stamped out in other areas by the Christian crusaders, the Inquisition, and the proselytizing of Jesuit priests around the world.

When I began researching the Dogon religion, I had no inkling of what I might be uncovering. When the reality of it became clearer, I felt as if someone had pulled the rug out from under me. It was as if everything I'd ever been told about history had been a disgraceful lie. This book is an exploration of human history and a journey of truth. It unravels the many lies that have been perpetuated against humanity throughout the ages. The Dogon religion is the only religion left in the world that tells us about the alien Nummo. Beings who were once at the base of human religion and at the core of human civilization. Beings who were almost completely stamped out of history and subsequently human consciousness. According to the Dogon, the spiritually advanced Nummo were a race of fish-like hermaphrodites who came to Earth for the benefit of humanity. The amphibious Nummo, who were described by the Dogon people as being more female than male, were immortal beings, who were identified with the sacred feminine. My research reveals that they were the Goddesses that were loved and revered by the people of Old Europe. Demonized by later patriarchal cultures, the Dogon tell us that these beings were responsible for human creation and civilization. To read the complete first chapter go to The First Religion

Shannon Dorey (born 1955) is a Canadian author best known for her research on the African Dogon people. She is a graduate of Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada with a combined English and History degree. Her interests were expanded to religious studies after studying the New Testament at the University of Windsor in 1991.

Based on the work of ethnographers Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen, Dorey has written four books analyzing the symbols found in the Dogon religion. In The Master (Mistress) of Speech, published in 2002 and updated in 2018, Dorey associates the Dogon symbols with genetics and biological engineering. In The Nummo, published in 2004 and updated in 2019, Dorey hypothesizes that the Dogon religion was an extremely ancient oral tradition with traces of it found in most ancient religions of the world. In Day of the Fish, published in 2012 and updated in 2017, she compares the Nummo, described by the Dogon elder OgotemmĂȘli, to the goddesses of the Neolithic period as defined by the Lithuanian-American archeologist, Marija Gimbutas. In 2016, Dorey published The Rose, associating Dogon symbols with knowledge about red giant stars and other aspects of astrophysics.

Dorey has written numerous articles on the Dogon religion including one for New Dawn magazine in 2010, which compared the Australian Rainbow Serpent to the Dogon Nummo, who were also described as being rainbow serpents.

Dorey continues her research uncovering the Dogon oral symbols embedded in the documents recorded by Griaule and Dieterlen.
