Anunnaki Gods –
Tyrants or World Civilizers?
Over the past five decades, with the publication of the late, great Zechariah Sitchin’s ten book Earth Chronicles series about the interaction of aliens with our ancient ancestors, the world has slowly awakened to the historical evidence that we have indeed been visited by extraterrestrial visitors in our ancient and historical past. The translations of the Sumerian cuneiform clay tablets found in the ancient city of Nineveh in the 1830’s, has up opened the minds of many people, including scholars, to a new interpretation of ancient history. The explorations of other Sumerian and Babylonian cities has brought to light over 100,000 clay cuneiform tablets which explain a great deal more about our gaps in understanding the riddles of our past. These historic records have answered many of the puzzling mysteries that have long confronted us, reaching into the fields of archaeology, anthropology, religious wars and traditions, human genetics and the very origins of human civilization.
In the tablets we learn that these extraterrestrial visitors were exceedingly tall and long lived, and that our ancestors knew them as the gods and goddesses of the ancient world. They called them that because of their enormous stature, power, and scientific knowledge that generations of younger human knew little or nothing about.
Of course, the stories of these extraordinary long lived beings exists in every culture of the world. We hear about them from the Greeks and Romans, who built enormous temples to them. We learn about the gods of Norse legend, stories from the Mayan, Incan and Native American civilizations, and from the first Chinese Emperors who founded dynasties based on their knowledge from the Star Beings. We discover images of these gods on the walls of the Egyptian temples that still strike awe in the hearts of visitors today, 5000 years later. And we still marvel at their colossal temples and feats of engineering that we cannot replicate today.
Yet as we examine the many legends of the gods and goddesses that traditional history would have us believe are just made up stories, we realize that having mentors or teachers from a move advanced civilization is the only sensible explanation. Who else could have constructed the over 750,000 pyramids found around the world with ground penetrating radar and satellite imaging? Who else could have moved 10 ton blocks of granite and placed them in mathematically perfect arrangement like those at Stonehenge? Who else would have had the technology to align them with the stars and the seasons and the cycles of galactic time, which can only be viewed over vast ages? Only beings who were more advanced in their technology and who acted as mentors to the human race.
Yet as we study some of these stories, we find that they are very human stories, even if they below to the gods. Many of these tales in fact reveal the gods and goddesses to be vastly varied in their outlook of human beings, and in some cases just as classically flawed and human as we are, even if they were long lived, large in stature, and came from the stars. Like us, the gods seem to fall in love, to squabble, to form alliances and even to fight among themselves at times. But they also build cities, excavate mineral deposits, travel in flying machines and impart moral, philosophical and spiritual lessons to mankind.
Standing between 9′ and 18′ feet in height, and aging so slowly that one of our years is but a day to them, they seem to have both inspired and to have dominated the ancient world. They were often the subject of our songs, myths, sagas, poems and legends even some 5000 years later, and our interactions with them form the very core of many of our world religions today.
THEIR CONTROVERSIAL AND VERY HUMAN NATURES
While purposeful, powerful, and enduring, the gods were also controversial. On one hand, they seemed to rule humanity from on high, often punishing or even championing the occasional human or demigod. One of the gods, the commander Enlil, was even said to have been responsible for the devastation of the great flood that swept Mesopotamian some 4000 B.C.E. Yet many of the gods and goddesses were advocates for the human race, inspiring Noah to build the ark and save the genetics of most of the animals on Earth. Yet the more we learn about the gods, the clearer it becomes that while they found us unruly and difficult to govern, they also passed on to humankind the foundation of all our arts and sciences. This includes the knowledge of astronomy, astrology, writing, commerce, metallurgy, chemistry, architecture, healing, and our masonry building skills, just to name a few. They invented ship building and navigation, teaching man to chart his way through the stars. They were the inspiration for our modern day airplanes and spaceflight, as man dreamed of transversing the stars as easily as we now transverse the land.
Some of the gods taught moral guidelines, social justice, and the art of fairness, law and ruler ship. Some of the gods taught healing, herbology, sound therapy and the healing arts. Our knowledge of the seasons, tides, and planting cycles of agriculture come directly from them. Our knowledge of how to domesticate animals and care for them, using their by products to produce cheese, butter, eggs and milk is from them. The gods taught us ship building, sailing, and navigation, teaching us how to navigate with the stars. They were the inspiration for our modern day airplanes and spaceflight, for we saw them transverse the stars as easily as we now transverse the land. One of the gods, Thoth, always an advocate for the human race, is responsible for setting up all the great Mysteries Schools around the world, working to inspire each person to rediscover their divine nature.
If history is to be believed, the gods and goddesses were many and they spread out across the world, from the Sumerian and Babylonian cultures across the Mediterranean. They great centers were in Lebanon, Egypt, the Indus Valley, India, the Celtic Isles, and the Sinai peninsula. While some were primarily concerned with their own agendas, others were more deeply involved with the protection and enlightenment of humanity.
They gave us the plow, the pulley and the loom. They taught us sailing, navigation and the knowledge of the stars. They taught humanity brick making, home construction and the mechanism of the wheel. They passed on their knowledge of a universal counting system, marking 24 hours to every day, 60 seconds to every minute, and 60 minutes in every hour. They knew there were 365 days in each year and that once, every four years, we had to add a day in order to correct for orbital variance. They passed down their knowledge of the heavens to the priesthood, a group of men and women who were originally chosen because of their moral virtue and intelligence. To them they bequeathed many of the more difficult arts and sciences, teaching humanity about the solstices and equinoxes (longest and shortest days of the year, and the midpoints in between), the 25,920 year “Great Year” as we pass above and below the galactic horizon, the twelve astrological ages of the Earth as we pass through the twelve constellations of the ecliptic, and plotted the movement of both lunar and solar eclipses.
Within each new civilization that spread across the world, they sought to convey a system of laws and governance, promoting fairness in property rights, and equality among the sexes, something we have only just begun to remember today. They instituted marriage between men and women to insure the strength of the family unit, citing the importance for education through the Guild system, for generations to come. They taught road building, city planning, and the flow of commerce between City States, establishing artistic and commercial professions where each succeeding generation could be trained in a craft, a skill or a guild, preserving the continuance of our knowledge so that we would not fall back into barbaric ways.
ISIS – QUEEN OF HEAVEN
Isis, for example, the daughter of Thoth, the god of wisdom, was one of those dedicated to the uplifting of the human condition. Her many attributes include curing disease, weaning humans from cannibalism, instituting marriage, inventing the loom, teaching the spinning of flax and weaving of cloth, as well as the domestication of animals, grinding of corn and revealing the mysteries of wheat, corn and barley.
Today Isis’ name is being corrupted by our own patriarchal religions and media who are afraid of the rising wave of female wisdom that threatens to bring balance to our world, and thus they have dubbed the terrorist group ISIL by the name of ISIS, polluting and distorting a deeper truth.
As an advocate for the human race, these are some of her many titles: Divine Lady, Goddess of Fertility, Queen of the Earth, Lady of the Living, Goddess of Healing, Protectress of the Dead, Mistress of the Elements, Bestower of Divine Life, Ruler of Egypt, Queen of the Stars. How many of us could lay claim to even a tenth of this kind of industry and positive far reaching influence? Not many, I imagine.
TODAY’S CONTROVERSIES ABOUT THEM
In recent years, as the physical and historic evidence for the existence of Extraterrestrial World Civilizers has grown, there are some who chaff against the idea that we were once “the children of the gods,” and like children we were instructed in a way of life that we may or may not have invented ourselves. After all, these decriers rail, “are we not rulers of our own destinies now? How dare any race presume to dominate us, enslave us, or tell us what to do! We are free citizens of the world, and this is not to be allowed!”
Much like angry teenagers, the discovery of this ancient extraterrestrial race may cause us to turn and blame “the gods” for all the things that have gone wrong on our planet, believing that elitist organizations like the Illuminati are a continuance of an ancient system of master and slave, “the have and have nots.” But are we better off now, than we would have been without the knowledge that they brought us? I believe we are, and now we are free to do what we want with that knowledge, and to make a better world. And since they have left, circa 2500 years ago, what have we done, as a human race, to show that we are any better? While certainly there is beauty, grace and knowledge in the world, we have had an unbroken string of tyrant civilizations that we can only lay at the doorstep of humanity itself. From the rise of the Roman Empire, through the centuries of the Crusades, the Inquisition, and two World Wars, we must stop blaming “the gods” and take responsibility for our own choices.
MAKING OUR OWN CHOICES
While there is certainly truth in saying that while the gods and goddesses were down on Earth, their was a more predictable and perhaps rigid structure to society, the purpose behind that was to dispense learning and to give each person a role in society. Yet the gods left Earth long ago. Now we are in charge. And if we are honest, it is the human desire for riches, power and control that has created the social systems of the “have and have nots” that exists in the world today.
We human beings are responsible for the suppression of deeper knowledge and the manipulation of the masses for our own ends – not the gods. And it has been the power and resolution of the human spirit that has been hard at work for the past 500 years to change it with advances in science, new age thought, and a more universal and humanitarian approach to our own brothers and sisters. But we must ever be vigilant as we chart our own destinies in this world.
Where we may have once given power to the gods, do we not now give over much of our power to our banking systems, our governments, our fossil based industries, our oppressive patriarchal religions, our political tyrants, and the good or bad leaders that we vote into office every year.
The gods were hardly perfect, but the jewels they left us were many. The question now is what are we going to do with these arts of civilization? How can we create a more balanced, loving and sustainable world in the here and now? Now that we, the Homo Sapiens Sapiens are in charge, what are we going to do about it? The answer lies within us all.
