Sumer and the Anunnaki

The ancient alien astronaut theory presupposes that thousands of years ago even before recorded history our planet was visited by astronauts from another world, intelligent beings with technology beyond our own today.  Many archaeologists around the world consider modern day Iraq as the “cradle of civilization”. Between 3500 and 1900 BC the Tigris and Euphrates river were the home of the Sumerian people who prospered in this region.

The Sumerians were the first people who started building actual cities, organised using actual city grids like we see in modern day cities around the world.  They invented sewer systems, they invented cobblestones -frequently used in the pavement of early streets, they were also taught in Agriculture but most importantly they were the first civilization that invented the first known writing system by using cuneiform script on clay tablets. They were one of the most advanced ancient civilizations.  History tells us many interesting facts and stories about the Sumerians and even today archaeologists and historians still do not have a complete picture that could tell everything about the people that once inhabited the region of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

In the 19th century archaeologists exploring the ancient ruins of Nineveh discovered 22,000 clay tablets. After translation, these tablets showed amazing  similar stories to those found in the Judeo-Christian Bible. We find stories of the great flood in these tablets and we can even read of Adam and Eve so basically all of these stories have precedence with the ancient Sumerians.

Today when we read or seek information about the Sumer and the Anunnaki or the people that inhabited that part of the world we come across  controversial author  Zecharia Sitchin.  In 1976 author Sitchin published his personal translations of the Sumerian texts in a series of books called “The Earth Chronicles“. According to Sitchin the clay tablets describe an alien race known as the Anunnaki who came to Earth to mine gold. Sitchin practically suggests that extraterrestrial visited earth in the past because their home-planet needed gold to survive. The gold deposits in their atmosphere were depleting so they came to Earth, mined old and took it back to their planet to save it, but what is it that makes gold so special and important?

    We are all descended from aliens…this is old news.

      Correct. The “Gods” in the bible actually referred to the Aliens. And to the primitive humans back then, those Aliens with their advance Technology would seem like God to them.

      Anunnaki – “Those from heaven to earth came”.

    The Almighty says apart from humans & Angels there is one more race he has created much prior to human creation and they are called the JINN.
    The Quran says “ And I created the Jinn and men, only for them to serve ME”. “And We have created man from a clay hardened and shaped. And the Jinn, We created him before that from the fire of the fierce hot winds.” (15:26-27)The JINN are beings with free will, living on Earth in a world parallel to mankind. The Arabic word means to conceal. In short, these beings are created before mankind and living with us totally hidden or with a few signs just to show their existence in the form of Gods & Goddesses Ghosts, Ascended Masters, Aliens, Reptilian, Daemons, Nephilim and you name it etc etc….Refer the below links for more insight.

      your full of crap. the quran is full of lies. read the bible to get the truth. there are no other Gods other than the man who died on cross for us Jesus. There are no goddess ghosts and whatever other bs your saying

      • shan

        Brother Jo,

        How can the God die on Cross and that also by his own creation “the man”.

        Below is the definition of Allah(The Almighty) in Holy Quran. If you have any better definition other than this I am interested.

        “Say: He is Allah, The One and Only.
        “Allah, the Eternal, Absolute.
        “He begets not, nor is He begotten.
        And there is none like unto Him.”
        [Al-Qur’an 112:1-4]

          Jesus the Son of God, who came to this earth as fully man and for God, did die on the cross. If you don’t want to believe it that’s fine.

            wow. most dialogue reflects the very spirit of closed-mindedness all religions are supposed to free one from. Where did religion originate? Who is the “US” that pondered creating Man is “their” (plural) image? We cannot say the bible is truth and use the bible as reference! What other book anywhere in the world is Jesus written about? There are millions of clay tablets speaking about these beings, but only 1 book speaking about Jesus. Hmmm
            In my humble opinion, all religion is man made and meant to lead one to servitude. Only knowledge is infinite, and we are too young a species to decide right now what can andd cannot be. Just my opinion.

        LOL, you’re a freaking idiot. The bible is a complete fraud. It is not an accurate translation. It has been modified to keep people like you uniformed.

        The Sumerian Tablets are the real deal. It predates the Bible by over 2,000 years. The Hebrew Bible was a short copy of the Sumerian tablet.

        And your bible, is a very bad copy of the Hebrew Bible. Not only that, the Church and whomever translated the Hebrew Bible also left out a couple of chapters. I wonders why.

        • Holly

          Totally agree amazing how people don’t know the bible is a bad copy that diluted much older writings.

        • obama_sucks2

          Just because it was written after the Sumerian Tablets mean nothing. And you need to look at which translation. There are many. Most use the Critical Texts to translate from. The KJV, which I prefer, uses a different form of texts. The KJV is the closest version. Not perfect no, but the best.

          And with the Sumerian Texts each temple records history. The kicker is it’s completely different for each temple. They aren’t reliable either. And no. The Bible is not a copy of the Sumerian Texts.

          Where did you get your info from? The internet? I got most of mine from college from professors who studied and proved their work.

          • deano

            From Professors? Trained at JESUIT Universities such as Oxford,Georgetown,Fordham & Wisconsin……who all answer to EMERITU Professors…….just like the Emeritu Bishops of the Vatican. The SMITHSONIAN has the same logo as the Jesuits/IHS/Society of Jesus. The National Academy of Sciences was founded by the “Lazzaroni”, who censored or discredited anyone who didn’t comply with their agenda & “Oath”.
            Do they deny that the “Flood story” is found in Gilgamesh tablets of Babylonia(Akkadian) & even earlier in the “Ziasudra”(Noah) tablets of the Sumerians?
            This was a “HOT” topic from late 1800s to 1930s, with George Smith a leader in Assyryology. The very term “ARK-aeology” is based on the search for artifacts to confirm the Bible..> the trouble was, the evidence confirmed in “stone” (not papyrus/parchments of +300BC), indicated the Bible was “based” on earlier Akkadian & Sumerian stories……..
            Faith? So you have more faith in a Esubius 300AD version of Greek translations of Proto-Canaanite stories that have again been translated into Latin & then later German/Olde English to finally Catholic King James Version in 1611…….?
            I have more faith in an experts translation of the ORIGINAL ……..
            For a start, Jesus comes from Ihesous(Greek), & Jehovah from YHWH(Yahweh) being changed to JHVH>Jehovah, both in KJV from 1611……

    one bigotry replaces another one, like so often. Religions use books that they will never be able to read, and Sitchin uses hieroglyphs that he also, and none of you, will ever understand. I read every single word of this tablet in clear and know what is written and symbolized there. This has nothing to do with aliens or any vision of the starry sky as such. It is the same story like those that come and tell us that the hieroglyphs in Egypt found on walls in the main temples are the history of Egypt, or that Jesus was alive and Julius Caesar or Hannibal where reality. When does humanity stops living with false beliefs and visions and killing each other for the greatest forgery of lies. Religion, our governments, and Sitchin have one in common, they tell us just any crap to earn money on the expense of those who believe in their stories.

  • Adam

    Why would the Sumerians write these stories on clay tablets about 5000 years ago? Because it was important to them and because it was real-it happened to them. Seriously..they spelled it all out for us…they couldn’t have given us any better proof that it occurred than this. And of course the bible continued with some of this information as well.

  • Paul Yak

    It truly makes sense as our overlords (Elite royalty, so called nobility, industrialists and politicians etc) are so addicted to gold. It is just a shiny metal unless you can see/sense/research its subatomic/monoatomic/triboelectric properties, which they/their alien leaders can/did/do. This is why I believe we must take back the rule of OUR world. Not an elite working in conjunction with an alien race to steal OUR Resources!

    • chris

      Rules? They don’t have one I guess…

  • ForeverYoung

    I believe the elliptical orbit is 36,000 & not 3,600 years as shown in the text above. Also, the Anunnaki arrived approximately 450,000 years ago but didn’t create the homo sapiens until many years later – after they threatened to strike from many, many years of toll in the gold mines.

  • obama_sucks2

    Sitchin was a fake. The Annunaki mean of princely blood. Also it’s not a watch on their wrist. One it’s on both wrists AND on their head, if you look at other pictures of the Annunaki.

    People want to believe in spend SO much that they believe everything they are told without checking the author’s facts.
