The Anunnaki and Nibiru: Everything You Need To Know
Theories of how the world began have abounded for centuries. Many of these theories turned into a religious quest for power. Some questi...
These legends also speak of a race of giants that once roamed the earth. In the Bible, Genesis chapter six, speaks of there being giants in those days and while it is believed by many in the Church that these beings were angels... the Sumerians believed they were a race of aliens from the planet Nibiru. This race was called the Annunaki. The word itself refers to the offspring of the deities Anu and Ki.
Were the giants spoken of in Genesis actually aliens from another planet? The Enuma Elish (the creation story according to the ancient Babylonians) has many parallels with the Christian bible. The Book of Genesis speaks of these giants (also called Nephilim) who were taught by the Church as having been angels who came to Earth and cohabitated with the daughters of Man (Genesis chapter six). The Book of Enoch, which was removed from the Christian Bible, speaks of the resulting hybrids of humans and these giants, or "watchers".
The Earth in its infancy was extremely rich in natural minerals. The Sumerians believed that the Annunaki were on the planet to mine the rich resources and they created from their own DNA and that of the Homo erectus (prehistoric man) the Homo sapiens. They did this to enslave mankind to further scour the Earth for gold and other precious metals.
Sumer was constructed under the direction of the Annunaki, and the city of Ur was the crowning point of this area. The gigantic race had shrines built in their honor and are thought by some to have designed and constructed the pyramids of Ancient Egypt. The Sumerians believed that the Annunaki were a highly superior, advanced race and along with that superiority came extreme arrogance. This arrogance would lead to their exile.
It is duly noted that Sitchin's findings have come under fire from scientists and astronomers. A majority believe that Sitchin's translations of the ancient writings are incorrect, and the mysterious planet spoken of by the Sumerians was actually Jupiter. However, it is just as important to note that since the beginning of time there have been those trying to cover up the truth. There have been reports of "dark matter" looming very near our solar system. Is it a collection of particles that scientists theorize are distributed throughout the planets... or is the mystery of Nibiru and the Annunaki coming closer to being solved?
It is known that the Christian bible has basis in many of the ancient writings. These parallels indicate that the writers of the Bible were recording history as they had been taught... however the Church took the Bible and made it about the agenda of mass control. Verses were rewritten to change entire meanings books were removed. Our origins are shrouded in mystery and there are those who have taken great pains to see to that. The question remains... why?
