King Etana who ruled for 1,500 years lived around 5,000 years ago. He was called the ‘God king’ and was taken as a guest of honor inside a ‘flying ship’ with a form of a shield that landed behind the Royal Palace, surrounded by a ‘swirl of flames’.
If we take a look at history from a different—more controversial—point of view, we’ll discover many possible explanations to history that mainstream scholars have left unanswered for decades.
Ancient Sumer has long been the subject of debate among experts. According to the ancient astronaut theory it all started there. The cradle of civilization, the origins of man.
If we take a close loke at ancient Sumer, we will notice countless stories mentioning powerful deities that came from above, incredible encounters with gods and what seems to be misinterpreted technology present on Earth thousands of years before modern civilization came to be.
There are many parts of ancient Sumerian literature, that can be interpreted as evidence of ancient alien contact, a time when powerful gods touched down on Earth, kick-starting civilization in a remote corner in ancient Mesopotamia.
We only have to take a look at the Sumerian King List:
After “royalty descended from heaven,” we find on the Sumerian King list, there were five cities “before the flood” whose eight Kings ruled over a period of 241,200 years.
“After the kingship descended from heaven, the kingship was in Eridug. In Eridug, Alulim became king; he ruled for 28800 years.”
Referred as the ‘Sumerian King List’ is an ancient stone tablet originally recorded in the Sumerian language, which clearly states how ‘ancient rulers’ descended from heaven.
But these rulers were not ordinary kings. They lived for tens of thousands of years.
It states how thousands of years ago ancient Kings enjoyed implausibly lengthy reigns.
But researchers say its impossible stating that the list is in fact a blend of prehistorical, presumably mythical predynastic rulers. In other words, some details are considered true, while others only a myth.
Archaeologists and historians say how predynastic antediluvian rulers—who enjoyed implausibly lengthy reigns—have NOT been verified as historical by archaeological excavations, epigraphical inscriptions or otherwise. But does that mean they didn’t exist and that they were part of mythology? Not necessarily.
The ancient document explains how Kingship was seen as handed down by the gods, and could be transferred from one ancient city to another, reflecting perceived hegemony in the region.
History tells us that the first ten kings of Sumer lived a total of 456,000 years, which gives them an average life of 45,600 years per person!
Each Sumerian city was protected by a “god”.
But the Sumerian King list isn’t the only controversial piece of evidence.
Numerous clay tablets that have been recovered from the region mention the presence of incredible technology thousands of years ago.
Ancient Sumerian texts—specifically those found in the Library of Asurbanipal— speak of the legend of the king Etana. These stories mention incredible things.
Etana was a former Sumerian king of the city of Kish.
According to the Sumerian King List, he reigned after the flood.
He appears as the successor of Arwium, the son of Mashda.
The Sumerian King List also happens to call Etana “the shepherd, who ascended to heaven and consolidated all foreign countries” and points out that he ruled 1560 years (some copies mention 635) before being succeeded by his son Balih, who ruled for 400 years.
Etana appears in the Sumerian kings list as the thirteenth king of the first Kish dynasty, which was established after the Great Flood.
He was the king “who ascended to heaven”.
Etana lived and ruled after the flood, and its history was well described by the Italian historian Alberto Fenoglio. (see Out of the Stars: A message from Extraterrestrial Intelligence.)
Etana lived after the flood, and his story is well described by Italian historian Alberto Fenoglio, “King Etana lived about 5000 years ago, he was called the God king and was taken as a guest of honor inside a flying ship with a form of a shield that landed behind the Royal Palace, surrounded by a swirl of flames. Out of this Flying ship came tall, blond dark-skinned men, dressed in white, who were said to be beautiful as gods. They invited king Etana to come with them, King Etana’s advisers tried to dissuade the King to go inside the flying object.
It is said that from this ship emerged extremely tall blond and dark-skinned humanoids, dressed in white, and said to be beautiful as gods.
In a swirl of flames and smoke, he rose as high that, Earth with its seas, islands and continents seemed as a bun in a basket, then it disappeared from view.
When he had borne him aloft one beru,
the Eagle says to him, to Etana:
“See, my friend, how the land appears!
Peer at the sea at the sides of the Mountain House:
The land has indeed become a mere hill,
The wide sea is just like a tub.”
“Clinging to the underbelly of the great eagle, Etana is carried up into the heavens. He is so far up that, when he looks down, he cannot see the earth and becomes afraid. He cries out to the eagle, “I looked but could not see the land! Nor were my eyes enough to find the vast sea! My friend, I won’t go up to heaven Set me down, let me go off to my city” and then lets go of the eagle and plunges toward the earth. The eagle swoops down after Etana and rescues him.” (Source)
