The unexplained

Did the Anunnaki create mankind over 400 thousand years ago?

Nearly all ancient texts seem to concur that otherworldly ‘beings’ created mankind. No matter what religion, culture or ancient writings we look at, all of them have one thing in common; Life on Earth was created, it did not start by itself, but ‘intervention’ from above was necessary. So that takes us to the question… who or what created us? Can we find the answer if we study the ancient Anunnaki?


Oh and… If the Anunnaki created mankind, who created the Anunnaki?

In nearly all ancient writings we find that ‘Gods’ created mankind. But have we ever asked ourselves who were these gods? Is life on Earth the result of intelligence far greater than we are able to understand? Can life be explained scientifically? Or is life –no only on Earth, but elsewhere in the universe potenitally— the result of a higher intelligence that we call ‘God.’

Ancient texts seem to tell us exactly how mankind came into existence.

For example, the sacred book of the ancient Maya tells us a fascinating creation ‘myth.’

The Popol Vuh states that ‘beings’ created mankind. These beings are referred to as “the Creator, the Former, the Dominator, the Feathered-Serpent, they-who-engender, they-who-give-being, hovered over the water as a dawning light.”

If we analyze the Popol Vuh a bit further we will find through chapter one: They are enveloped in green and azure: that is why their name is Gucumatz (Feathered-Serpent). Of the greatest sages is their being. Then came his Word with the Dominator and the Feathered-Serpent; and they consulted together and meditated, and while they consulted, it became day…”

“…at the moment of the dawn, MAN manifested himself, while they, in the darkness and in the night, were holding counsel upon the production and growth of trees and creeping vines, of sentient beings and humanity, by him who is the Heart of the Heavens, whose name is Hurakan. Lightning is the first sign of Hurakan; the second, the path-of-the-lightning; the third is the thunderbolt. And these three are the Heart of the Heavens…”

Among other ancient texts, the Bible seems to tell a similar story…

There are several Bible verses that refer to the creation of Adam and Eve, which some believe to be based on writings of Sumerian clay tablets that speak of “superior” beings which created the first human species.

Looking at Genesis 1:26-27: we find the following; Then God said, “…Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground…”

“…So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them…”

In the Quran we find the following:

. Verse 96.1: “read in the name of God who created”;
. Verse 96.2: “created man from a clinging substance”;
. Verse 96.3: “read and your God, the most generous”;
. Verse 96.4: “who taught by the pen”;
. Verse 96.5: “Taught man what he did not knew.”

This is why we ask again, who were these Gods? Is it possible that some of the oldest writings on Earth –from Ancient Summer— can help us understand mankind’s origin?

We look towards the Anunnaki hoping to find out more about ‘WHO’ created mankind.

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.

Many researchers firmly believe that based on numerous discoveries, 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.

Many find comfort in the ancient alien theory which 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.

Controversial author Zecharia Sitchin tells us much more about the Anunnaki.

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.

Many people agree that the ancient Anunnaki could be the responsible ‘creators’ who kickstarted life on our planet.

Evidence of their creation is found in different cultures and different religions around the globe. However, all ancient creation myths seem to concur that ‘mankind was created’ by beings obviously not from Earth.

Are these beings the Anunnaki? And is it possible that all ancient creation myths are similar because they all originated from the same source? Even though we have different texts, from different cultures who were NOT interconnected in the distant past, all of them seem to tell the same story: Mankind was ‘created’ by beings from elsewhere.

Is it possible that this creation can explain the abrupt “evolution” of man?

However, new discoveries and alternative theories that contradict and put pressure on well-established concepts, are by no means welcome by mainstream scholars.

Maybe we need to open our minds to different possibilities in order to fully understand the origin of mankind.

Despite recent scientific progress in various areas, it sometimes seems as if we never really left the Dark Ages behind us, since in some areas we remain very close minded.

Don’t forget that today, with the technology available to us; mankind can create life on other worlds.

So why is it hard to believe that thousands if not million of years ago, a spacefaring civilization did the same on Earth?

    There are many reasons why this Annunaki story cannot be true, at the very least, they were self-deluded, or attempting to delude all others.

    The ancient vedic scriptures of Srimad Bhagavatam talk of dynasties of kings that lived on Earth hundreds of millions of years ago, and artifacts have been found in rock seams several hundred million years old.

    Certainly some people may have been created by the Annunaki, but not all, the Hopi for instance, say they came from another planet. See the Paracus cone head skulls, some claim they are examples of purposely elongated skulls, but they are perfectly natural, and have massively greater brain capacity than today’s human varieties, and completely different skull sutures. Many races have been on this Earth in the past, and likely there will be many more in the future.
