The Anunnaki

Post by weasel666 on Sun 23 Feb 2014, 17:41



The Anunnaki are a group of deities in ancient Mesopotamian cultures (i.e. Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, and Babylonian). According to The Oxford Companion to World Mythology, the Anunnaki "are the Sumerian deities of the old primordial line; they are chthonic deities of fertility, associated eventually with the underworld, where they became judges. They take their name from the old sky god An (Anu).

The ancient Sumerian myth called the 'Enuma Elish', inscribed on cuneiform tablets, and part of the Library of Ashurbanipal, says humankind was created to serve gods called the Annunaki. Ancient astronaut creation theorists believe that the Annunaki were giant aliens who came to earth to mine gold for their home planet. According to the Enuma Elish story, the Annunaki realized mining gold was taking a toll on their race, and then created the human race as slaves. Ancient astronaut theorists conclude that the story of Adam and Eve is a revised telling of Enuma Elish.
