From the OP's linked article:
According to the Sumerian scribes, the Flood was caused by certain divine beings called the Annunaki, or Annanage (‘The Shining Ones’), who,
many alternative scholars believe were aliens.
While true that the Anunnaki caused the Sumerian flood to happen (due to humans being so noisy,) the author calls them, "the shining ones" in
"The Shining Ones" phrase originates from the Pyramid Texts and refers to the dead, not to any gods, though the gods were themselves described as
shining in some spots in the same texts.
Glory is shiny.
The article does contain some decent facts, though they are unfortunately linked by the author where no link is apparent (he states Osiris as the
"civilizer of man," who saved humans from the flood and was supposedly the same as Enki and the Dogon Lebe - there was no Dogon or Egyptian flood
Lebe (Lebe Seru) is the object of only one of three schools of thought in the Dogon religion. He was the first Dogon, and the cult associated with
this belief associates themselves with agriculture.
Too much tripe in there to go much farther. It doesn't profit me to read and re-read the various fringe claims I already know by harte.
At least the author states above that "...many alternate scholars believe..." and doesn't directly state the claim as if it were fact.
I'd like to add that it is no surprise that "civilizer" myths are associated with agriculture, since agriculture is a necessary prerequisite for
