The Anunnaki or “Those of Royal Blood” are considered as immortal gods who once inhabited our earth during the ancient Sumerian times. The word Anunnaki means as “those who Anu sent from heaven to earth”.
During an excavation of the Biblical city of Nineveh in 1845, a team led by Austen Henry Layard, discovered the ruins of the ancient Assyrian library of Ashurbanipal. One of the most important discoveries made during the excavation where a series of cuneiform tablets called the Enűma Eliš, or better known as “The Seven Tablets of Creation” The Seven Tablets of Creation tell the story about a group of gods called the Anunnaki who came from the heaven to create the human race.
The history tells that Sumerians in ancient Mesopotamia achieved over one hundred “firsts” for human civilization. Advances in writing, agriculture, science, mathematics, medicine, astronomy, transportation, building, military, schools and city planning, all originated in Sumer. The Sumerians credit these achievements to The Anunnaki -giant, winged gods, who are only found in ancient cuneiform texts. Could these gods be more than legend? Is it possible that civilization made sudden, huge advances in development 5,000 years ago as a result of the Anunnaki’s presence on Earth? Could the human race have been jump-started or even genetically created by extraterrestrial beings in the remote past?
Why did the Anunnaki Come to Earth?
The exact origin and homeland of Sumerians are unknown. It is believed they came for the east, but whether from the sea or highlands is not clear, also they don’t belong to any of local groups because of very different language. So, there are several theories when it comes to Anunnaki.
According to Zecharia Sitchin advance human-like extraterrestrial race (called Anunnaki in Sumerian myth) came from the distant planet Nibiru 450,000 years ago searching for valuable minerals deposits on earth. He claims these ‘gods’ of the Anunnaki were the rank and file workers of the colonial expedition to earth, they genetically engineered Homo sapiens be crossing extraterrestrial genes with those of the Home erectus.
William Henry, ancient astronaut theories and investigative mythologist suggests that the Anunnaki “seeded” Noah and other biblical figures with “star seed” that gave them extra-long lives. He also claims that the Anunnaki came through star gates (worm holes) while other conspiracy theorists suggest they arrived to earth in giant space ships. However, the Sumerian texts describing the Anunnaki are sparking a lot of different theories and also rising these questions:
Have the Anunnaki left for ever and would not coming back?
Are they still here, but staying out of the limelight?
If Anunnaki return would they be happy seeing what has happened since taking their sabbatical?
Anunnaki: Mars Connection
Ancient astronaut theorists suggest that the Anunnaki occupied both Mars and Earth which could be one of the reasons why the Sumerian tablets carry so many myths about Mars. If Anunnaki actually did colonize Mars in the past, is there a possibility that we today may find evidence of structures on the Red Planet? Such as pyramids, columns, statues, etc.
NASA’s rovers have been exploring Mars, and some strange structure has been identified. While some say it is just our imagination, there are other structures and shapes which have no explanation whatsoever.
Researchers have found many references in the cuneiform tablets that are believed to be the records of the mysterious Anunnaki. The researchers affirm that the tablets refer to Anunnaki history on Mars. The modern day translation of the Sumerian and Babylonian origin myths, a cataclysmic event did take place on the red planet. According to the ancient Mesoamerican myths, a feathered serpent allegedly destroyed Mars. Another theory suggests that a comet or an asteroid crashed into Mars, and it turned into an isolated and inhabitable place.
Some people believe the Anunnaki influenced nearly all ancient civilizations in the distant past, others may propose different theories.
However, if we look at ancient Hindu, Greek, Roman, Aztec, Egyptian and Mayan texts, we will find that there are fascinating similarities between them all: in the distant past, supernatural beings descended to Earth from the heavens and their interaction with existed human race resulted in offsprings that were so called demi-gods who possess both human characteristics and divine powers.
