These are the Anunnaki: Alien Gods of Ancient Sumer



The Anunnaki are said to be a group of deities in several ancient Mesopotamian cultures like the Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, and Babylonian.

The Anunnaki are also one of the MOST controversial subjects among many people around the globe. Millions of people around the world believe the Ancient Anunnaki are the creators of man and are not mythological beings but in fact flesh and blood ‘gods’ who came to Earth in the distant past.


Anunnaki


Several authors and researchers have argued that the Anunnaki are not fully understood and that mainstream scholars refuse to admit their true origin.

Based on numerous archaeological discoveries: artifacts, records and monuments found in the past by experts, it is believed that the Anunnaki (Sumerian: “those who came down from the heavens), a highly advanced civilization from an elusive planet in our solar system, came to Earth, landing in the Persian Gulf some 432,000 years ago.

But imagine what would happen if history acknowledged that hundreds of thousands of years ago, advanced beings from elsewhere in the universe came to Earth and helped kickstart the human civilization?

Aliens or not?

If we search for the Anunnaki and look for alternative explanations that disagree with mainstream scholars, we will eventually come across the Ancient Astronaut (alien) theory.

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 archeologists consider modern day Iraq as the “cradle of civilization” and that the Ancient Anunnaki are one of the main reasons why this part of the world developed so rapidly thousands of years ago.


Approximately some 250,000 years ago, according to Sitchin, the ancient Anunnaki merged their Alien genes with that of Homo Erectus and created a species known as Homo Sapiens, obtaining, as a result, a genetically bicameral species.

Between 3500 and 1900 BC the Tigris and Euphrates river were the home of the Sumerian people who prospered in this region.

So basically, when we look at the ancient Anunnaki and their actual origin we encounter two different perspectives from two types of people.

Those who believe that the ancient Anunnaki are part of a creation myth of ancient cultures like the Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonian, and those who believe that what is written on ancient Mesopotamian clay tablets are actual descriptions of otherworldly beings who came down to Earth hundreds of thousands of years ago.

This seems to be a never-ending debate.

But even before the ancient Anunnaki allegedly created mankind, it is said that the Igigi –they who turn and see—were the Ancient Astronaut Gods of the younger generation, the servants to the mighty Anunnaki who came to Earth to mine gold.

Mainstream scholars use the term Igigi to reference the mythological Sumerian deities. According to mainstream academics, the Igigi were the younger servants of the Anunnaki, who initiated a rebellion against their masters and dictatorship of Enlil. Eventually, the Anunnaki replaced the Igigi with humans.

What do you believe and what are your thoughts? Do you thnk there is enough evidence to support theories regarding the existence of the Anunnaki? Were they mere myths? Or is it possible they were flesh and blood ‘Gods’ that came down to Earth in the distant past, kickstarting the human civilization?

  1. Anything and everything is possible!
    Am more than sure that we homo sapiens are a ‘Genetically Modified Product’!
    Who, why, when, where, what and How remains to be arrived at

  2. it’s not actually true about Sumerian language.
    one of Armenian scientist discovered huge similarity between Sumerian and Armenian languages.
    he even claims that every each Armenian could read with understanding Sumerian hieroglyphic texts, wrote as a sort of rebus.
    he also took 100 Sumerian words according agriculture and compared with Armenian and all 100 has common core.
    one more interesting is that Armenian characters was used as well as a digits and characters of which consists names of all previously known metals assumed gives the atomic number of this element
    (the order of an element in Mendeleyev’s table of the elements equal to the number of protons in the nucleus or electrons in the neutral state of an atom of an element).
    unfortunately i don’t remember now the name of this scientist but if someone needs it i’m able to find it and send
    Sumerians claimed they arrived from the country which lies down where are the sources of Tiger and Euphrates well contemporaneously there lays down the Armenia so…

  3. If you read Genesis 6 it says that fallen angels mated with humans and created a hybrid race. Non-Biblical sources such as the book of Enoch, Jubilees, Jashur, etc tell us that these evil half-humans oppressed mankind, enslaving them. Then, the evil giants fought each other killing each other for the most part. Then, humans worshiped them and experimented with nature creating all sorts of hybrids.

    They believed that the gods (fallen angels) came from outer space and ancient man was obsessed with astronomy, astrology, etc. People got more and more wicked, especially by altering DNA of humans and animals. God sent the flood and wiped them out, preserving only Noah and his family. The descendants of Noah heard stories of the past history and this became the mythologies of Sumer, Egypt, Greece, Babylon, etc. Some giants existed after the Flood, but these were much smaller and didn’t rule the world like the pre-flood monsters did.

  4. No I don’t agree Fuzzy, the logarithmic spiral ie the Fibonacci Spiral of life is universe wide as are the forces ie gravity. Why wouldn’t similar patterns of life spring up everywhere?

    1. Similar yes, genetically compatible I can’t see? Even closely related species like gorilla are not compatible enough to hybridise with humans. Genes could be spliced or something like that, but ‘interbreeding’ with alien species just seems a bridge too far?
      Unless they ARE related in some way?
