Michael Tellinger

Michael Tellinger is [amongst other things] an author and activist who expounds an extraordinary extraterrestrial story.

Michael Tellinger is a South African author, songwriter and politician.

Tellinger released his first SA record in 1981, HAZEL, nominated for the SARIE award in that year as best male vocalist.[citation needed]

Later in 1981 Tellinger played the part of Joseph in the opening of the State Theatre in Pretoria. Michael Tellinger and Russell Stirling combined to become a successful rock duo during the early 80’s before splitting up in 1985.

In 2005 he published the book Slave Species of God based on the writings of Zecharia Sitchin, which propounded an ancient astronaut theory of human origins.

Recently he has evangelised for a money-less society.

In 2012 Tellinger founded the Ubuntu Party in South Africa, based on his principles of contributionism. It contested in the 2014 National Elections.


Tellinger published his first book, Slave Species of God, in 2005. The work is the result of a 25-year study of the writings of Zecharia Sitchin, who claims to have translated ancient Sumerian clay tablets and theorized about the early creation of man by the Anunnaki.

Adam’s Calendar, published in 2008, discusses a stone circle rediscovered by co-author Johan Heine in 2003, which they claim date to 75,000 years ago.

Temples Of The African Gods, published in 2010, discusses the baKoni Ruins of Machadodorp, claiming they date to 200,000 years ago.

Tellinger also frequently publishes articles on the topic via his website.


In May 2010 Michael Tellinger gave a presentation promoting his latest [co-authored] book.

Over 1 million circular stone structures lie scattered throughout southern Africa.

Until recently these have been called cattle kraal, of little historic value.

Extensive research by Michael Tellinger and others has revealed that these are the remains of a vanished ancient civilization dating back tens of thousands of years.

It covered an area larger than modern day Johannesburg and London together.

Tools, artifacts, and petroglyphs indicate that the Egyptians and Sumerians got much of their knowledge and imagery from this vanished civilization.

All of this is crowned by a stone calendar now called Adam’s Calendar that is forcing the academics to question human origins.

Scientific evidence shows that this was also a gold mining culture and many prehistoric gold mines are still present throughout the area.

Michael Tellinger has become one of South Africa’s bestselling export authors.

His regular articles on human origins and his book Slave Species of God have been praised by readers in over 20 countries.

He graduated in 1983 from the University Of Witwatersrand Medical School, Johannesburg, with a B.Pharmaceutics degree, a passion for the cosmos, genetics and human history.

His research and astute understanding of his subject matter has made him a regular guest on many radio shows in the USA and UK.

Temples of the African Gods – Michael Tellinger and Johan Heine – 2010

This is a scientific expose that will shatter our knowledge of ancient human history.

Scholars have told us that the first civilisation on Earth emerged in a land called Sumer some 6000 years ago.

New archaeological and scientific discoveries made by Michael Tellinger, Johan Heine and a team of leading scientists, show that the Sumerians and even the Egyptians inherited all their knowledge from an earlier civilisation that lived at the southern tip of Africa more than 200,000 years ago…mining gold.

These were also the people who carved the first Horus bird, the first Sphinx, built the first pyramids and built an accurate stone calendar right in the heart of it all.

“Adam’s Calendar” is the flagship among millions of circular stone ruins, ancient roads, agricultural terraces and thousands of ancient mines, left behind by a vanished civilisation which we now call the First People.

They carved detailed images into the hardest rock, worshipped the sun, and are the first to carve an image of the Egyptian Ankh – key of life and universal knowledge, 200,000 years before the Egyptians came to light.

This book graphically exposes these discoveries and will be the catalyst for rewriting our ancient human history.

The book is a continuation of Tellinger’s previous books “Slave Species of God” and “Adam’s Calendar” which have become favourites with readers in over 20 countries.


Personally, I agree with the Amazon UK reviewer [Richard] who commented that the authors have “overcooked the book” and that it would have been improved had they “confined themselves to reporting and commenting on what they have found”.

Regardless of these reservations it should be recognised that the May 2010 presentation given by Michael Tellinger does contain some very extraordinary information.

Firstly, the North-South alignment of the stone circle near Kaapschehoop in South Africa [discovered by Johan Heine in 2003] is misaligned by 3° 17′ 42”.

In 2003, a strange arrangement of large stones that were neatly planted at the edge of a cliff near the town of Kaapschehoop, South Africa, was spotted by Johan Heine from his aeroplane.

After returning to the spot the next day to see the site on the ground, he instantly realised that this was no ordinary, nor natural arrangement of monoliths, and so began a process of measurements and calculations that lasted several years.

His meticulous analysis clearly shows that this was an ancient calendar that is aligned with the movements of the sun, solstices and equinoxes, and that we can still mark every day of the year by the movement of the shadows cast on the flat surface of the calendar stone at the centre of the site.

Adam's Calendar

The interesting aspect of this misalignment is that it’s very close to the deviation of “about 4°” highlighted by Peter James when he compared today’s parallel of latitude with those reported by Hipparchus.

Born in Marseille, Hipparchus placed its latitude on the same latitude as Byzantium (Istanbul, today).

A parallel of latitude through both locations is shown in Figure 4.

The one by Hipparchus deviates from today’s parallel of latitude by an angle of about 4° and it would put the North Pole near the northern tip of Russia (Bol’shevik Is), outside the limits of the modern permanent pack ice and some 1000-1500 km from its present location.

Hipparchus of Nicaea (c. 190 – c. 120 BC), was a Greek astronomer, geographer, and mathematician.


See: https://malagabay.wordpress.com/2015/11/14/heinsohn-and-the-eclipse-record/

Double checking this parallel of latitude calculation the deviation becomes 2° 16′ 48”.

Istanbul Coordinates: 41°00′49″N 28°57′18″E

Marseille Coordinates: 43°17′47″N 5°22′12″E

Therefore, these two historical alignments suggest that sometime during the last 2,100 years the European and African continents have rotated by about 2 or 3 degrees.

The Roman coin discovered 25 metres down in a South African gold mine [as reported by Michael Tellinger] suggests this realignment occurred sometime after 138 AD.


Secondly, Michael Tellinger shows that there are the remains of numerous circular stone structures in South Africa which are typically dismissed by the mainstream as “cattle kraal”.

However, as Michael Tellinger notes, many of theses circular stone structures don’t appear to have obvious entrances and this makes them very unsuitable structures to use as “cattle kraal”.

Stones Circles

Furthermore, the profusion of these circular stone structures coupled with the remains of the the Great Zimbabwe city suggest South Africa was once densely populated.

Quite how many circular stone structures there are in South African is open to debate but Michael Tellinger claims to have identified 3 lost cities and 10 million ruins with the aid of Google maps.

Great Zimbabwe is a ruined city in the south-eastern hills of Zimbabwe near Lake Mutirikwe and the town of Masvingo.

It was the capital of the Kingdom of Zimbabwe during the country’s Late Iron Age.

The mainstream dwarf-sized cattle kraal narrative appears to be mired in manure.

Laboratory Analysis Reveals Direct Evidence of Precolonial Gold Recovery in the Archaeology of Zimbabwe’s Eastern Highlands

Ann Kritzinger</
Proceedings of 9th International Mining History Congress, Johannesburg 17-21 April 2012


Recent research finds direct evidence for recovery of gold in the archaeology of Nyanga
district, Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe.

In particular, laboratory tests and structural analysis counter archaeologists’ conjecture that hundreds of stone-lined ‘pit-structures’ housed dwarf-sized cattle to provide manure for enriching poor soils on steep scarps for terrace farming.

The agricultural theory is countered by assays identifying the processing of ore in the so-called ‘pit-structures’, extracted from eluvial deposits on artificially terraced hillslopes.

Additionally non-erosional gullies, long-distance water channels and dams, and massive cross-contour ridges on alluvial banks, signify the labour-intensive land modifications of a precolonial mining landscape.
