According to Zechariah Sitchin’s Ancient Astronaut Theory, the Anunnaki were an Extra-Terrestrial group of Alien Gods from the Planet Nibiru .
The name Anunnaki means children of the Sumerian Supreme God, Anu on Earth (Ki) which suggests that they were Ancient Astronauts that travelled from their own Home Planet Nibiru to Earth.
The Anunnaki were descended from their Father, Anu or An who was the Supreme Ruler on their Home Planet Nibiru. The Anunnaki Pantheon was made up a Pantheon of 12 Gods under the leadership of the Supreme God Anu.
The Table below from an Anunnaki Temple in Sumer provides a list of the Ancient Astronaut Anunnaki Gods according to Rank which is denoted by number with 60 belonging to Anu as the highest.
In short, the Anunnaki Gods were ranked as follows:
- Antu (Anu’s Spouse)
- Ninhursag (All Children Of Anu and Antu);
- Marduk (Enki’s Son);
- Ninurta (Children Of Enlil);
- Nergal (Enlil’s Grandchildren).
The same Pantheon of Ancient Astronaut Gods under different names may have spread to other Civilizations, namely, Greece, India and Meso-America.
2. Why Did The Anunnaki Gods Leave Nibiru?
According to the Ancient Astronaut Theory, the Anunnaki left their Home Planet Nibiru in search of mono-atomic Gold which was needed to repair their deteriorating atmosphere.
3. When Did The Anunnaki Ancient Astronauts Arrive?
The Anunnaki are supposed to have arrived on Earth approximately 450 000 years ago.
4. Where Was The First Anunnaki Settlement?
The first Ancient Astronaut Settlement built by the Anunnaki was the Base Station at EDIN (Garden Of Eden), with the first Aunnaki City State being established Eridu.
5. Major Events During The Period Of Ancient Astronaut Activity On Earth
The major activity of the Anunnaki was the establishment of a Civilization ruled by Ancient Astronauts which involved Gold-mining operations, establishment of City States in Sumer, Meso-America,the Indus and Nile Valleys, the creation of Man through DNA Engineering, the introduction of Civilization, Religion and Culture, the Pyramid Wars of Supremacy amongst themselves for control of the City States in which Humans first became involved and the concept of Divine Kingship was introduced, the Nuclear destruction of the Sumerian Civilization followed by their eventual departure after the Anunnaki Nuclear War and the conquest of Babylon by Cyrus The Great.
6. Where Did The Anunnaki Mine For Gold?
The first Ancient Astronaut Gold Mining operations were conducted in the waters of Mesopotamia around the settlement at Eridu, however, the quantities proved insufficient and the Anunnaki Gold Mining operations were moved to Southern Africa .
7. When, Why and How Did The Anunnaki Create Man?
Mankind was created by the Anunnaki Gods around 400 000 years ago by fusing the DNA of Homo Erectus with Anunnaki DNA to create the first Human Adama Prototype following the Igigi Rebellion.
The Igigi had previously been tasked to undertake the Gold-mining work on behalf of the Ancient Astronauts, but the labour proved too much and they rebelled on account of their hard toil.
The solution that was proposed by the Anunnaki God Enki was to create a genetic hybrid Slave of Human Beings to take over the work of the Igigi.
8. What Contributions Did The Anunnaki Make To Civilization?
The Ancient Astronaut Gods are the ‘Elohim’ and ‘Nephilim’ of the Hebrew Bible, and they developed the Earth through a combination of technical prowess in matters such as Building, Astronomy, Construction, Writing.
The Anunnaki also devised ways to manage the Human population through a sophisticated system of Propaganda which now forms the basis of modern Religion.
The origins of Civilization and Religion can thus be traced to the Civilization established by Ancient Astronauts in Ancient Sumer.
9. The Anunnaki & The Great Deluge
The Human population in the Sumerian City States Ruled by various Anunnaki Gods eventually expanded beyond what was desirable to Enlil, the leader of the Ancient Astronauts on Earth.
An opportunity to reduce the Human Population was soon presented to the Anunnaki by a Natural Disaster in the form of a natural tidal wave that would cause a Great Flood or Deluge due to Nibiru’s close orbit to the Earth.
However, ENKI Chief Scientist of the Anunnaki Gods who had created humans warned them of the coming disaster by instructing that an Ark be built.
Mankind was thus saved from total destruction by the Anunnaki but this caused a further rift between the two Ancient Astronaut factions led by the Chief Anunnaki Princes Enki and Enlil .
10. What Were The Causes of The Anunnaki Wars?
The Rivalry Between Enki & Enlil: Anunnaki Bloodline Succession Rules
The Rivalry between Anunnaki Princes Enki and Enlil can be understood in terms of the Anunnaki rules of Succession.
Prior to their arrival from Nibiru, the Ancient Astronauts followed certain Rules of Succession. In terms of these Anunnaki Rules, the Successor to the King had to be of the purest Blood.
Where an Anunnaki King did not bear a Son with his Royal spouse, then his oldest Male child by a Concubine would qualify as his Successor. However, if the Anunnaki King’s official Spouse subsequently bore him a Son, then the Son from the official Spouse would be his Successor.
In the case of Enki and Enlil we had a situation where Enki who was born of Anu’s relationship with a Concubine was initially the official Successor, however, when Anu’s Spouse later bore a Son (Enlil), Enki was replaced as the Official Successor in accordance with the Anunnaki succession rules.
Although Enki was obliged to accept Enlil as Anu’s successor, he would express his frustration by opposing Enlil at every major turn starting with the Igigi Rebellion, Garden of Eden incident and then the Great Deluge (Noah’s Flood).
The Igigi Rebellion
The Igigi rebellion as stated above occured when the Igigi rebelled. According to the Ancient Astronaut Hypothesis, the Igigi Rebellion was part of a plot instigated by Enki to frustrate Enlil and place the Gold-Mining operations of the Anunnaki under his sole control.
The Creation of Man by The Anunnaki
Enki had secretly genetically engineered the Adamu to reproduce against the wishes of Enlil and the rest of the Anunnaki Council.
According to the Ancient Astronaut Hypothesis, Enki did this deliberately in order to hold Enlil and the rest of the Anunnaki to ransom as he would be in charge of the new labour force.
The Anunnaki Pyramid Wars
As a result of the underlying Anunnaki succession tensions from Nibiru which continued to play themselves eventually open War broke out between the Anunnaki factions of Enki and Enlil.
According to the Ancient Astronaut Hypothesis, these wars were called the first and second Anunnaki ‘Pyramid Wars’ and they were fought in Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula.
These Anunnaki Wars eventually led to the culture of War being introduced to Man, and the rise of Abraham, paving the way for the world’s Monotheistic Religions.
The other major consequence of the Ancient Astronaut Wars was Nuclear Holocaust as shown in the destruction of Sodom and Gommorah resulting in the final destruction of the Sumerian Civilization.
10.When and Why Did The Anunnaki Leave?
In The End Of Days, Zechariah Sitchin uses the Ancient Astronaut Theory to argue that the Anunnaki initially left for Mars after the destruction of the Sinai Peninsula Spaceport and the rise of Babylon under Marduk using the Meso-American bases at NAZCA and Teotihuacan.
However, the Enlilite Anunnaki Faction represented by the Moon God, Sin subsequently returned replacing Marduk as the Chief Anunnaki God of Babylon under King Nabonaidus.
The response of Marduk and the Enkiites was to recruit Cyrus the Great who then defeated Nabonaidus and restored Marduk as King of Babylon.
According to the Ancient Astronaut Hypothesis, it is from the Anunnaki’s role in the creation of the Persian Empire that the later Empires of Ancient History such as the Hitiites, Romans and Greeks were descended.
11. What Is The Legacy Of The Anunnaki Gods?
The legacy of the Sumerian Anunnaki Gods has found its way into modern Religion, particularly through shortened versions of the Sumerian and later Babylonian Texts such as the Enuma Elish Creation Epic in the Hebrew Bible.
This in turn has formed the bedrock of the world’s leading Monotheistic Religions, starting with Judaism, followed by Christianity and lastly Islam.
The Ancient Astronaut Theory has argued that the legacy of the Anunnaki goes as far as the creation of Man and Civilization itself as we know it.
Along the way, the memory of the Sumerian Anunnaki Gods and their Saga on Earth has been lost to the mists of time, but their enduring legacy continues to thrive to this day because it may be the Ancient Astronauts of Sumer that provided Humans with the Blueprint of how to create a Civilization.
