Jeremy Black and Anthony Green offer a slightly different perspective on the Igigi and the Anunnaki, writing that “lgigu or Igigi is a term introduced in the Old Babylonian Period as a name for the (ten) “great gods“. While it sometimes kept that sense in later periods, from Middle Assyrian and Babylonian times on it is generally used to refer to the gods of heaven collectively, just as the term Anunnakku (Anuna) was later used to refer to the gods of the underworld. In the Epic of Creation, it is said that there are 300 lgigu of heaven.”
The Anunnaki appear in the Babylonian creation myth, Enuma Elish. In the late version magnifying Marduk, after the creation of mankind, Marduk divides the Anunnaki and assigns them to their proper stations, three hundred in heaven, three hundred on the earth. In gratitude, the Anunnaki, the “Great Gods“, built Esagila, the splendid: “They raised high the head of Esagila equaling Apsu. Having built a stage-tower as high as Apsu, they set up in it an abode for Marduk, Enlil, Ea. “Then they built their own shrines“.
According to later Assyrian and Babylonian myth, the Anunnaki were the children of Anu and Ki, brother and sister gods, themselves the children of Anshar and Kishar (Skypivot and Earthpivot, the Celestial poles), who in turn were the children of Lahamu and Lahmu (“the muddy ones“), names given to the gatekeepers of the Abzu temple at Eridu, the site at which the creation was thought to have occurred. Finally, Lahamu and Lahmu were the children of Tiamat (Goddess of the Ocean) and Abzu (God of Fresh Water).
In 1850, Austen Henry, a famous excavator, found some ancient clay tablets in Iraq (almost 250 miles away of Baghdad) during his excavation. The exact location of this excavation was near a area of today’s Iraqi town Mosul. The Sumerian tablets give us the clue about one of the historical findings imaginable of our time- evidence of advanced species descending to our planet earth and living with humans. These Sumerian texts was first deciphered by a linguistic scholar Zechariah Sitchin, who was a master of many Middle Eastern languages - Sumerian, Hebrew, Aramaic. His translation reveals that Annunaki was a god, lived with humans, who descended from a heavenly body. This Sumerian text is also known as Enoch, which describes Gods as “the watchers” as does Egyptian text. According to this tablet Annunaki came from a distant planet “Nibiru”, which has been recently located by astronomers, beyond Pluto, and has been named as PLANET X.
The most astonishing fact that Sumerian text revealed is that how Homo sapiens were created by Annunaki with the help of his associates. Sitchin’s translation says that Annunaki came to our planet approximately 450,000 years ago in order to mine gold in a place in present day’s Zimbabwe. A recent research by an Anglo-American corp. has confirmed that an extensive scale of gold mining in the same area, at least 100,000 years ago. All the mined gold used to shipped back to Annunaki’s planet, and the workers used to work in mines was from his planet too. After a rebellion Annunaki decided to create a new working class to do the mining for them-probably this is the very first concept of enslavement of human race in our entire history.
In order to create a new slave or working class for mining work, the Annunaki’s genes and the native human genes were mixed up in a test tube to create the new race - Homo sapiens. This really sounds like a fairy tale, yet our modern science says that around 200,000 years back there was a sudden change or upgrade of human form - famously known as the missing link. Though we still don’t find any logical explanation for this missing link, but this Annunaki’s experiments with humans’ genes makes some sense.
It is widely believed among the ‘ancient astronaut’ theorists that the Annunaki were not “Gods” of mythology, but rather, extra-terrestrial beings who came to Earth and using DNA techniques, created the species of man to use as a slave labor force to harvest resources for their purpose. Most notably, gold.
What if it is not a myth? What if this is really true?
Many ancient astronaut theorists believe that it is.
