The Annunaki: Were They Vital to Our History?
We discovered this article that we think you’ll find interesting The Annunaki. Were they vital to our history?
Are humanity’s origins bound up with aliens, specifically, the Annunaki?
This might sound crazy, but there seems to be enough evidence to at least bring it into question.
Who were the Annunaki?
The answer, however, is not always crystal clear. Let’s just list some of the things there is broad agreement about first.
- The records about them appear in Sumeria about 3,000 years ago
- They came from another planet
- They were particularly interested in gold
- They were worshiped as gods
- They divided into factions as to how to treat mankind
- Mankind was genetically altered to enable us to perform better for them
An interesting list, isn’t it?
Actually, the major investigator of these Sumerian records is Zechariah Sitchin. He says that his work shows that many of the Biblical Stories originated from Sumeria and the activities of the Annunaki.
Further, he claims that the Annunaki were on Earth about 450,000 years ago, primarily looking for gold which was very important in their culture, and perhaps for their longevity.
Not surprisingly, such advanced beings in ships and with ‘magical’ technology were viewed as gods. The main person was Anu, in charge overall, probably remaining in orbit around Earth.
Beneath him were Ninhursag, Enlil (brother and sister), and Enki, as well as Marduk, Inanna, and a variety of minor deities each with their own areas of responsibility.
From a careful reading of the clay tablets and interpretation of the carvings on the cylinder seals found in ancient Sumer, Sitchin has pieced together a detailed history of the Annunaki.
The full story is very long and worth reading if you are at all interested in this aspect of alien intervention in human affairs. There are six books in his series titled ‘The Earth Chronicles’. In them, he takes the story of the Annunaki from their origin on another planet (which has since been known as Nibiru, Planet X, Marduk, and The Twelfth Planet), and tells of how they mined gold, manipulated the genes of humans and generally altered the normal run of affairs on Earth.
For example, there is a puzzling passage in Genesis chapter 6 verse 4 which reads; “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they; bare children unto them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”
A different version has that same passage as, “The Nefilim were upon the Earth in those days and thereafter too. Those sons of the gods who cohabited with the daughters of Adam, and they bore children into them. They were the Mighty Ones of Eternity, the People of the Shem.”
This could be explained as the Annunaki coming down from above and cohabiting with human women. Instead of giants, the term ‘Fallen Ones’ is better explained by their descent from the heavens in their ships. The Nefilim were, according to Sitchin, the Annunaki.
All this is, of course, interesting. But the main interest to me is the influence these aliens have had upon us.
Look at the civilization of Sumer as a start. This advanced culture seemingly sprang up overnight. It bore the hallmarks of an aware and technologically capable society at a time when no-one can point to any possible precursor. Taxes, irrigation, public buildings, a priesthood, a civil code, factories, all appeared pretty much out of nowhere. If that isn’t having an influence on us, I’d like to know what is!
For example, if we were bred to be slaves of a kind, isn’t it interesting that we have the same attitude to our animals? We breed them with little thought to their emotions, feelings, desires, or anything else. We impose our desires on them, much as the Annunaki imposed theirs on us.
And what of the strange fixation we have with adornments, precious metals, and sex? If the records are exact, then these same traits were those of the aliens. They enjoyed gold jewelry. They altered us to be able to have sex and produce all the time (not the norm!), and they generally showed us the way to behave…belligerently, with little regard to others and to concentrate on outward show rather than inward meaning.
Now, I know these are huge generalizations, but the traits we exhibit as humans must have come from somewhere. I do not subscribe to the theory that these are natural developments of evolution. They are, in many ways, unnatural.
And we have the Annunaki to thank for them…for us!!
