The Anunnaki: From Stardust to Gold Dust
The Anunnaki have been a source of great mystery since ancient times. The name means “princely offspring” or “offspring of Anu” and they are prominent figures in Sumerian mythology. Sumer or Mesopotamia is located mostly where Iraq is now and is considered to be the cradle of civilization. Its strength developed approximately 4 – 3,000 B.C. Astronomy, farming, currency, and math (in particular the calculation of time) are just some of the areas where the Sumerians excelled and helped their contributions to mankind. The Sumerians appear to have travelled from a different location before settling in Mesopotamia since their language stands alone. The Anunnaki feature heavily through ancient Sumerian mythology. Study of the ancient Sumerian text has led many to believe that the Anunnaki may not have just been mythological figures but actually visitors from another planet that came to earth to mine it for its gold.
Zachary Sitchin is a well-known, prominent author on all things that relate to the Anunnaki. He has studied the ancient Sumerian works in depth and written extensively on the subject. According to his interpretation of Sumerian cosmology, there is a tenth planet in the solar system, Nibiru, which makes it to the inner reaches of the solar system every 3,600 years. At one point in time, it collided with another planet called Tiamat, which broke apart, forming Earth and the asteroid belt and comets that surround earth.
The Anunnaki Gold Rush
Sitchin believes that the Nibiruans are the Anunnaki, also referred to in the Bible as the Nephilim, who first came to Earth approximately 450,000 years ago. He believes they were looking for minerals, in particular gold. According to many who have studied the subject extensively, there are writings and drawings that indicate that the Anunnaki bred with homo erectus to create human beings. Many theories abound regarding the motivation for genetically engineering human beings from the Anunnaki and homo erectus. Sichuan proposes that they did it to use humans to help them mine for gold. The humans were believed to be workers for the Anunnaki and over time they became sexually attracted to the humans.
The Great Flood
The Anunnaki human sexual relationship was frowned upon. Especially as humans started to multiply and overrun the planet. The high council sent a flood that wiped out many humans. The Anunnaki returned at 12,500 years ago and helped to destabilize the humans. 6,000 years ago they decided to give the humans independence. This theory goes to explain how there was such a sudden acceleration in the advancement of human development and technology around 4 – 3,000 B.C. Most of what has become the roots of civilization began at this time.
The excavation of ancient sites beginning in the 1800s has brought the details of Sumerian culture to light. Alien existence was undeniably accepted according to the hundreds of clay tablets that have been recovered that intimately describe Sumerian beliefs and life. These records describe the Anunnaki genetic engineering laboratory to be located just above a gold mine where the mitochondrial DNA “search for Eve” found the location of the first homo sapien woman. African gold mining engineers have discovered 100,000 year old gold mines all through that area. The Anunnaki history and its connection to Nibiru and genetic engineering all stems from the ancient evidence discovered over the last 200 years. So are we in fact the descendants of an ancient alien race? It’s very possible and this alone begs further investigation.
