The Mesopotamian Aliens

Updated: Nov 20, 2023


We usually think of aliens as weird-looking monsters who come to eat our brains. But what if they look just like you and me? What if they even share our DNA, and they are the reason we inhabit Earth?

The Anunnaki myth is a story of aliens who came to Earth thousands of years ago, accelerated human evolution, and left a promise of coming back one day.

The story of the Anunnaki was written by the first civilization on Earth: Sumer (modern-day Iraq), which emerged 6,500 years ago. It was passed down to us on stone tablets (search: Enuma Elish, Atra Hasis, the Tablets of Creation), which reside in the British Museum in London today.

The story

Without further ado, lets go over the story:

According to the Sumerian tablets, there is a planet at the ends of our solar system called Nibiru. Every 3600 years, it enters an orbit close to the planet Earth. 450,000 years ago, the planet Nibiru became a hostile environment for its residents due to a crack in its ozone layer. The ruling race of Nibiru "The Anunnaki", discovered a method to reduce the size of the crack in the ozone layer by emitting gold particles into the atmosphere. Unfortunately, gold was a scarce element on Nibiru. This need drove the Anunnaki to travel to neighbouring planets in search for gold. Fortunately the third planet from the sun happened to have an abundance of gold and no intelligent life. The Anunnaki set course for Earth and brought along with them their servants, "The Igigi", to mine gold and send it back to Nibiru.

Upon arriving on Earth, the Anunnaki resided in a city called Eridu (In Mesopotamia), which they built in 7 days. Their main goal was to collect gold and sent it to Nibiru.

Hundreds of years of mining gold restored Nibiru to its former glory. Unfortunately, it was on the expense of the poor servants who had to endure the excruciating pain of the gold mines. This suffering led to the Igigi rebelling against their masters and starting a war in an attempt to free themselves. However, the Igigi were no match for the strength and technological advancements of the Anunnaki and they were defeated.

After a war that badly damaged Eridu and led to the annihilation of the servant race, the Anunnaki had to come up with a replacement for their workers.

The Anunnaki king, Enki, came up with the idea of exploiting the existing life forms on Earth to create a new servant race. A race that would be intelligent enough to carry out the tasks of serving the Anunnaki as their gods but weak enough not to challenge the them.

The Anunnaki embedded their essence in an ape-like creature to create the first human being, which they called "Adamu". Adamu was created in the image of the Anunnaki, although much smaller as only half of him was Anunnaki blood.

Moreover, the Anunnaki engineered another human being called "Heva" to procreate with Adamu in order to create more humans on their own without the need for the Anunnaki to interfere.

The mission was successful. Centuries after the creation of Adamu and Heva, the city of Eridu had plenty of human beings. Human intelligence impressed the Anunnaki so much that as a reward they were allowed in the sacred garden in Eridu called "Edin" that was previously exclusive to the Anunnaki.

The Anunnaki instructed the humans not to procreate too much to prevent overpopulation in the city of Eridu. However, human numbers grew exponentially, which forced the Anunnaki to exile many of them out of Edin and Eridu into the wild.

After a millennia, the planet Nibiru approached Earth again. Nibiru's gravitational pull was so strong that it affected Earth's natural conditions. An increase in Earth's temperature caused the rapid melting of the ice glaciers, raising the levels of the oceans and causing constant rain. A great flood ravaged the Earth, and the city of Eridu was doomed to submerge.

To save their creation, the Anunnaki created large boats that floated for days until the oceans returned to normal levels. After their city was destroyed, the Anunnaki decided to return to Nibiru. Before leaving, they passed their knowledge of architecture, agriculture, and writing to the humans. The Anunnaki also instructed them to build temples aligned with the constellations, which would one day guide the Anunnaki back to Earth.

The Sumerian tablets included details of war (on Nibiru and Earth), names of specific Anunnaki rulers, and names of their half-human children.

Connection to modern religion

Since the Sumerian civilization existed 6000 years ago, needles to say, it preceded all religions. Not only that, but the most famous stories in the Bible (Old and New) and the Quran were copied from the Sumerian tablets.

1. Angels

Modern religions share the belief in angels, creatures descending from heaven to earth. The concept of heaven can be an indication of space, as we typically think of heaven as being above us. Consequently, the idea of powerful beings from heaven in modern religions may be nothing more than a reference to the Anunnaki.

2. The garden of Eden

As mentioned in the story above, Edin was the name given to the garden exclusive to the Anunnaki in Eridu. The name was changed to Eden by modern religions.

3. Adam and Eve

Once again, the names were copied from Sumerian tablets with slight changes.

Adamu -> Adam, Heva -> Hawa (Arabic), Hava (Hebrew), Eve (English). The story of Adam and Eve's expulsion from the garden of Eden for defying God's instruction is the same in the Sumerian story, with a slight change of the reason.

4. The Nephilim

In the Sumerian tablets, it is mentioned that the Anunnaki mated with human females from time to time, and as a result, they bore large children with incredible strength. The Old Testament Bible mentioned the Nephilim as giants who lived before and after the flood. The idea of the Nephilim is not an original one, but rather a copy of the half-blood children of the Anunnaki.

5. The great flood

This might be the most famous story of all—the story of Noah. According to the Atra-Hasis Epic, Ea (Sumerian Enki), the god of the waters, warns the hero (Akkadian Atrahasis) and gives him instructions for building an ark to survive the flood.

6. The world was created in 7 days

At this point, it comes as no surprise as to where the 7-day creation story came from. In the Sumerian tablets, it is mentioned that Eridu was built in 7 days.

It is theorized that the Egyptians were among those who learned Sumerian knowledge, as some Sumerian texts exist in the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Regarding the Anunnaki, it is thought that the Egyptian gods are nothing more than a renaming of the Sumerian gods. Similarly, the Greek and Roman gods are also believed to be another renaming of the same ancient entities.

Different civilizations around the world mention beings teaching humans new knowledge. The Egyptians speak of Thoth's teachings, the Greeks mention Hermes as the teacher, and the Romans call him Mercury. The Mayans refer to him as Quetzalcoatl or Kukulcan.

The question is, why do all these civilizations give credit to a teacher instead of claiming it for themselves? Have they really found the knowledge instead of creating it themselves?

Connection to modern science

1. Nibiru:

According to ancient tablets, Nibiru is described as a planet on the edge of our solar system. Coincidentally, there is a growing scientific belief in the existence of a giant ninth planet on the fringe of our solar system. For more information, you can read about it in this scientific journal:

2. Evolution

Scientific estimates propose that human evolution from an ape-like ancestor on Earth occurred approximately 300,000 years ago. According to the theory of evolution, significant genetic changes led to the emergence of Homo sapiens, representing a crucial leap in our evolutionary history. To explore this topic further, you can delve into relevant scientific literature and resources:

3. Civilization

The Sumerian civilization is recognized by scientists as one of the earliest on Earth, and surprisingly, one of the most advanced. Some of the remarkable Sumerian inventions include:

- Irrigation systems for farming

- Fabrication of copper

- Monarchy

- Astronomy, as evidenced by depictions of the solar system with planets orbiting around the sun.

- The calendar system we use today

- The wheel and the sailboat

- The alphabet and numbering systems

- The conceptualization of time, including seconds, minutes, and hours

Despite the Sumerian religious beliefs regarding the Anunnaki, it is perplexing that one of the first civilizations exhibited such a leap in human creativity. It is no wonder that some might attribute this knowledge to extra-terrestrial beings

4. Advanced architecture

Come on, you didn't think I would write this much without mentioning the pyramids, did you? While it's a cliché to attribute the construction of pyramids to extraterrestrials, I'm not going down that route. However, it is intriguing that about a thousand years after the Sumerians were supposedly instructed to build structures aligned with constellations, the Egyptians indeed built pyramids aligned with specific celestial patterns. One theory suggests that Orion is the constellation aligned with the pyramids (source: Regardless of the constellations theories, pyramids found around the world serve as a testament to a lost architectural knowledge that can be traced back to its roots in Sumer.

Was it real?

Could we be the outcome of a dubious genetic engineering experiment, created as slaves on a new planet by a super-intelligent alien species that our ancestors mistakenly perceived as gods? Is there a possibility of their return to reclaim Earth?

Perhaps, or perhaps not. Science doesn't necessarily provide clearer answers than mythology. Therefore, for now, we can only wait and see.
