The Annunaki & Nephilim
The Annunaki are immortal ancient gods that settled on the earth plane during the Sumerian time in Mesopotamia.
The Sumerian civilisation formed on the Persian Gulf, expanding to strength at around 3 – 4,000 B.C. The region of 'Plain of the Land of Shinar' that, after 2,000 B.C., became Babylon. The Greeks called the region Mesopotamia (The ground between two rivers) in the current state of Iraq. The Ancient Sumerians were the first documented civilisation of humankind and highly advanced with currency, farming and astronomy.
ANCIENT SUMERIAN CIVILISATION HISTORY
The exact origins of the Sumerians have yet to be discovered. They entered Mesopotamia around 4,000 B.C.
THE SUMERIANS ORIGINAL HOMELAND IS UNKNOWN.
It is considered that they came from the east, whether by sea or from the highlands are still being determined. We know they are not local because their language belongs to an isolated group. During the 5th millennium B.C., the Ubaidians launched settlements in the region known as Sumer (Mesopotamia). There are clear similarities between the Ubaid artwork and that of 'Old Europe' Vinca Culture, which thrived c. 6,000 – 3,501 BC.
At approximately 3,250 BC, different people migrated from its homeland, probably northeast of Mesopotamia. They began to intermarry with the native population. The newcomers, known as Sumerians, spoke an agglutinative language unrelated to any other general language.
By 3,100 B.C., the people of Sumer had increased to the point where people lived in cities. The Sumerian's first ruler of the historical record, Etana, king of Kish (flourished around 2,800 BC), was expressed in a manuscript written centuries after as the "man who stabilised the lands."
The early dynastic period of Sumer covers part of the third millennium from 2,801 to 2,400 BC. It terminates with the conquest of Sumer by Sargon I of Akkad, the Semitic king of the north. After the kingship fell from heaven, the kingship was in Eridug. Finally, Alulim became king and ruled for 28,800 years. Alaljar ruled for 36,000 years. 2 kings; ruled for almost 65,000 years.
Then Eridug failed, and the kingship was taken to Bad-tibia. In Bad-tibira, En-men-lu-ana ruled for 43,200 years. After that, en-men-gal-ana ruled for 28,800 years. Dumuzid, the shepherd, ruled for 36,000 years. 3 kings; ruled for 109,000 years. The kingship was taken to Larag as Bad-tibira fell. In Larag, En-sipad-zid-ana ruled for 29,000 years. Then Larag fell, and the kingship was carried to Zimbir. En-men-dur-ana became king and ruled for 21,000 years.; he ruled for 21,000 years. Then Zimbir fell, and the kingship was brought to Curuppag. Then Ubara-Tutu became king; he ruled for 18,600 years. ; he ruled for 18,600 years. In 5 cities, 8 kings; ruled for 241,200 years. Then the flood swept over.
The Sumerians were the first to leave sophisticated documents of astronomical observations. Their fascination with the heavens is evident in many seals and cuneiform clay tablets unearthed of an astronomical nature. The Sumerians were the first to divide time and space by units of six. The division of each year into 12 months, 24 hours of a day, hours into 60 minutes and 60 seconds, and the divisions of the sphere/circle by 360 degrees, formed of 60 minutes and lastly 60 seconds of an arc, are developments of the Sumerians. This division by six units has been observed at several well-known British megaliths.
Sumerians believed in the significance of Pleiades, showing it in many clay tablet seals, Sumerian images and texts. In addition to being considered as the seven great gods assembled together, the morning setting of Pleiades was utilised to mark the beginning and end of the farming year.
The cylinder seal VA/243 -State Museum, East Berlin, shows a 'star' with eleven planets surrounding it. Nevertheless, there are no known records of the Sumerians having knowledge of more than five planets in our system. Moreover, these beings were not from earth and had a unique bloodline.
Who are the Nephilim
The Nephilim are the offspring of human beings and Annunaki beings.
"The Nephilim were on the earth in those days and afterwards when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. The Nephilim were the heroes of old, men of renown." Genesis 6:4
Sitchin considers they genetically engineered the modern-day human race by crossbreeding with homo erectus. They did this to use humans as a slave species race to mine gold from the earth.
This information may sound hard to believe, but some evidence has been confirmed. It is a fact that ancient mining operations have been unearthed in Africa. We can debate the technologies, but it gives some credence to the idea that humanity was created as a slave race.
According to Zecharia Sitchin's interpretation of Sumerian cosmology in The 12th Planet, there is a hypothetical planet that follows a long, elliptical orbit, reaching the inner solar system roughly every 3,600 years.
THIS PLANET IS CALLED NIBIRU (THE PLANET ASSOCIATED WITH MARDUK IN BABYLONIAN COSMOLOGY).
NIBIRU COLLIDED CATASTROPHICALLY WITH TIAMAT, ANOTHER HYPOTHETICAL PLANET BETWEEN MARS AND JUPITER.
The collision formed the planet earth, the asteroid belt, and the comets. Tiamat, as outlined in the Enûma Elish, is a goddess. Nevertheless, according to the author, Tiamat may have been what we now know as earth. When struck by one of planet Nibiru's moons, Tiamat smashed in two. On a second pass, Nibiru itself struck the broken fragments, and one-half of Tiamat became the asteroid belt. The second half, struck again by one of Nibiru's moons, was pushed into a new orbit and became today's planet earth. This scenario is scientifically debated.
However, Sitchin's theories maintain that it would explain the earth's peculiar early geography due to cleaving from the celestial collision, i.e. solid continents on one side and a giant ocean on the other. It would also explain why the earth is layered in sediments.
According to the author, Nibiru was the home of a technologically advanced human-like extra-terrestrial race (called the Anunnaki in Sumerian myth), the Nephilim in the Bible.
TIMELINE OF WHEN THE SUMERIANS LIVED
He claims that the Gods first arrived on earth probably 450,000 years ago. The supreme deity sent them here looking for minerals, especially gold, which they found and mined in Africa. The Anunnaki's "ancient gods" were the rank-and-file workers of the colonial expedition to earth from planet Nibiru.
ARE HUMANS A GENETICALLY ENGINEERED SLAVE RACE?
Sitchin considers the Anunnaki genetically engineered Homo sapiens as slave creatures to mine gold by mixing extra-terrestrial genes with those of the Homo erectus. Sitchin claims that Sumerian text's ancient inscriptions report that human civilisation in Sumer of Mesopotamia was set up with the guidance of these "gods". Human kingship was inaugurated as an intermediary between the Anunnaki and humankind.
Sitchin believes that the fallout from nuclear weapons used during a war between factions of extraterrestrials is the "evil wind" that annihilated Ur around 2001 B.C. Sitchin claims the year is 2024 B.C., as recorded in the Lament for Ur. Sitchin claims that his research coincides with many biblical texts and that the biblical texts come originally from the Sumerian writings of their history.
