There many examples of ancient rulers who were given advanced weapons by the gods to overthrow enemies , All of these examples are excerpts from Zecheria Sitchens's book the 'Wars of Gods and men' published in 1992.



....The Akkadian dynasty begun by Sargon reached its peak under his grandson Naram-Sin ("Whom the god Sin loves"). His conquests, Naram-Sin wrote on his monuments, were possible because his god had armed him with a unique weapon, the "Weapon of the god," and because the other gods granted him their explicit consent - or even invited him - to enter their regions.”




an inscription about an expedition of Naram-Sin to the Cedar Mountain relates (ANET, p. 268):

"Naram-Sin slew Arman and Ibla with the 'weapon' of the god Dagan who aggrandizes his kingdom."






...Describing his various military campaigns, Shalmaneser asserted that his victories were achieved with weapons provided by two gods:

"I fought with the Mighty Force which Ashur, my lord, had given me, and with the strong weapons which Nergal, my leader, had presented to me."




Sennacherib was able to assume the cherished title "King of Sumer and Akkad...." He conquered.... with the aid of "the awe-inspiring Brilliance, the weapon of Ashur, my lord." Reliefs that illustrate his campaigns (as the one depicting the siege of Lachish), show the attackers using rocketlike missiles against their enemy. In the conquered cities Sennacherib "killed their officials and patricians ... and hung their bodies on poles surrounding the city; the common citizens I considered prisoners of war."




"....The siege of Jerusalem offers several interesting aspects. It had no direct cause but only an indirect one: the forced holding there of the loyal king of Ekron. The "awe-inspiring Brilliance, the weapon of Ashur,"




"....Other inscriptions of Ashurbanipal suggest that this weapon, which emitted an intense, blinding brightness, was worn by the gods as part of their headgear. In one instance an enemy "was blinded by the brightness from the god-head." In another, "Ishtar, who dwells in Arbela, clad in Divine Fire and sporting the Radiant Headwear, rained flames upon Arabia."





"The Old Testament, too, refers to such a Weapon of Brilliance that could blind. When the Angels (literally, emissaries) of the Lord came to Sodom prior to its destruction, the populace attempted to break down the door of the house in which they were resting. So the Angels "smote the people at the entrance of the house with blindness.... and they were unable to find the doorway."





Hannurabi treated Larsa…as an adversary, boasting that he “overthrew Larsa in battle” and attacked its sacred precinct “with the mighty weapon which the gods had given him.”




To defeat more enemies the god Marduk granted Hammurabi a “powerful weapon” called “Great Power of Marduk”:

“With the Powerful Weapon with which Marduk proclaimed his triumphs,

the hero (Hammurabi) overthrew in battle the armies of Eshnuna, Sabartu and Gutium…

With the “Great Power of Marduk” (alien technologies)

he overthrew the armies of Sutium, Turukku, Kamu…

With the Mighty Power which Anu and Enlil had given him

he defeated all his enemies as far as the country of Subartu …”

Yes. Many examples in mythology of all kinds of stuff.

Hell, Maui kidnapped the sun and convinced it to slow down so his mom's kapa would have time to dry. Do you think he really did that?

False. We are discussing stuff an economist said about it. An economist who also invented Nibiru.


All of these examples are excerpts from Zecheria Sitchens's book the 'Wars of Gods and men' published in 1992.



And, I was talking about the Hawaiian legend.

To be fair, if you're talking about Sitchins work, you're not talking about anything written by the Sumerians, only the wet dreams of an old man looking to profit off of the ignorant. Within context, Phage is actually more on the topic of the thread title than any portion of the OP is.

if an alien travelled light years to visit and the only gift they gave us was a weapon wouldn't that make them a bit of a dick?

"I fought with the Mighty Force which Ashur, my lord, had given me, and with the strong weapons which Nergal, my leader, had presented to me."

This is a standard practice in Middle Eastern theology wherein any victory is attributed to gods rather than personal accomplishment or military superiority. The Bible also has many events where a god is responsible for an action, such as Yahweh telling Abraham to leave his country, or Solomon giving Yahweh credit for putting his enemies under the "soles of his feet".
This is not even considering that when you continue the quote, it is mentioned that said weapons were swords:




Reliefs that illustrate his campaigns (as the one depicting the siege of Lachish), show the attackers using rocketlike missiles against their enemy

Would that be in reference to these?

...which are torches, not rockets. You can even see charioteers pouring water from long ladles to put them out. Particularly disturbing is the fact you think the Assyrians had rocket technology yet fought with spears and chariots.

I am going to assume you are unaware that the "weapon" of personified storm gods is lightning...

Makes you wonder what would happen in 1000 years if they dug up a mint condition comic book set. Would future conspiracy theorists think that we were actually mutants of some kind that could fly and shoot beams out of our eyes?

LOL....if we simply follow Phages thinking and break it down to a subatomic evidenciary level....lol.....someone gave someone a gamechanging super-weapon....someone referred to as a God......it could have been a Tactical Nuke or a Gourd filled with gunpowder made with urine and fused with horsehair.....god could have been a self-subscribed God...www.youtube.com... is simply no proof of anything tangible or real here.....nothing to see here....move along I guess.

Or NOT.

How about we keep open minds and extrapolate.....and say that there was a secret Breakaway Society which posessed preserved and did not share high technology ....that co-existed with many different groups of humans on many different points of the technological evolutionary scale.....and that this secret society/group/civilisation for its own reasons periodiclly intervened in the affairs of different groups at different times on a strictly managerial level....pitting one specially armed group against another...tilting the playing field ..... keeping them seperated from each other.....using a shadow-man hands off management template.

Ooops....did we just explain todays reality?

THE CONTENDING OF HORUS AND SETH


"Was it a sad commentary on the history of warfare that the messianic Essenes envisioned the Final War of Men as one in which the Company of the Divine would join the Congregation of the Mortals, and the "war cries of gods and men" would mingle on the battlefield?

"Not at all. What The War of the Sons of Light against the Sons of Darkness had envisioned was simply that human warfare shall end just as it had begun: with gods and men fighting side by side.

"Incredible as it may sound, a document exists that describes the first war in which the gods involved mortal men. It is an inscription on the walls of the great temple at Edfu, an ancient Egyptian holy city that was dedicated to the god Horus.

"....The inscription, remarkable for its geographical accuracy, begins with an exact date - a date not in the affairs of men but of the gods. It deals with events when the gods themselves, long before the Pharaohs, reigned over Egypt:

"In the year 363 His Majesty, Ra, the Holy One, the Falcon of the Horizon, the Immortal Who For Ever Lives, was in the land of Khenn. He was accompanied by his warriors, for the enemies had conspired against their lord in the district which has been called Ua-Ua since that day...."

"....With a few words the ancient scribe succeeded in drawing the background as well as setting the stage for the unusual war that was about to unfold. We gather at once that the battle was brought on by a conspiracy by certain "enemies" of the gods Ra and Horus, to take away the "Luminous Crown of Lordship" unto themselves. This, obviously, could have been done only by some other god or gods. To forestall the conspiracy Ra - "accompanied by his warriors" - went in his boat to a district where Horus had set up his headquarters.

"The "boat" of Ra, as is known from many other texts, was a Celestial Boat in which Ra could soar to the farthest heavens. In this instance Ra used it to land far away from any waters, "in the western part" of the district of Ua-Ua. There he landed east of the "Throne Place" of Horus. And Horus came to greet his forefather and respond to him that "the enemy" was gathering its forces.

"Then Ra, the Holy One, the Falcon of the Horizon, said unto Horus, the Winged Measurer: "Lofty issue of Ra, my begotten: Go quickly, knock down the enemy whom you have seen."

"So instructed, Horus took off in the Winged Disk to search for the enemy from the skies.

"From the skies, flying in the Winged Disk, Horus spotted the enemy forces and unleashed upon them a "storm" that could neither be seen nor heard, yet it brought instantaneous death.

"Horus then flew back to the boat of Ra in the Winged Disk, "which shined in many colours."

"....And Thoth (the god of magical crafts) said:

"Oh Lord of the Gods! The Winged Measurer has returned in the great Winged Disk, shining with many colours...."

"Therefore he is named from that day on: "The Winged Measurer." And they named after Horus the Winged Measurer, the city of Hut "Behutet," from that day on.

"....Traditions held that Edfu was where Horus established a divine metal foundry, at which unique weapons made of "divine iron" were forged. It was there, too, that Horus trained an army of mesniu - "Metal People." They were depicted on the walls of the temple of Edfu as men with shaven heads, wearing a short tunic and a deep collar, carrying weapons in each hand. A depiction of an unidentified, harpoonlike weapon was included in the hieroglyphic words for "divine iron" and "metal people."

"The mesniu were, according to Egyptian traditions, the first men ever to have been armed by the gods with weapons made of metal. They also were, as we shall soon gather from the unfolding tale, the first men to have been enlisted by a god to fight in the wars between the gods.

"....The initial victories apparently also strengthened the alliance of the gods, for we are told that the Asiatic goddess Ishtar (the Egyptian texts call her by her Canaanite name Ashtoreth) had joined the group. Hovering in the sky, Horus called on Ra to scout the land below.

"....Since the enemies on the land were hidden, Ra had an idea: "And Ra said unto the gods accompanying him: ’Let us guide our vessel towards the water, for the enemy lies in the land.’ And they called the waters ’The Travelled Waters’ from that day on." While Ra could utilize the amphibious capabilities of his vehicle, Horus was in need of a waterborne vessel. So they gave him a boat, "and called it Mak-A (Great Protector) unto this day."

It was then that the first battle involving mortal men ensued.

"It was then that the Winged Disk was adopted as the emblem of Horus victorious:

"It is from that day that the metal emblems of Horus have existed. It was Horus who had fashioned as his emblem the Winged Disk, placing it upon the forepart of the boat of Ra.

The goddess of the north and the goddess of the south, represented as two serpents, he placed alongside.

"And Horus stood behind the emblem, upon the boat of Ra, the Divine Iron and the chain in his had.

"In spite of the proclamation of Horus by Thoth as a bringer of peace, peace was not yet in hand.

"....While the first aerial battle broke through the defenses separating Egypt from Nubia at Syene (Aswan), the ensuing battles on land and water secured for Horus the bend of the Nile, from Thebes to Dendera. There great temples and royal sites proliferated in days to come. Now the way was open into the heartland of Egypt.... A series of brief, but fierce, encounters then ensued; the place names - well established in ancient Egyptian geography - indicate that the attacking gods reached the area of lakes that had stretched in antiquity from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean (some of which still remain).

"....The Edfu temple inscription now shifts to a new panel, for indeed there began a new chapter in that War of the Gods. The enemies that had managed to escape "directed themselves by the Lake of the North, setting themselves toward the Mediterranean, which they desired to reach by sailing through the water district. But the god smote their hearts (with fear), and when they reached the middle of the waters as they fled, they directed themselves from the western lake to the waters which connect with the lakes of the district Mer, in order to join themselves there with the enemies who were the Land of Seth."

"These verses provide not only geographical information; they also identify "the enemies" for the first time.

It was when Horus, in hot pursuit, crossed the waters into the territory of Seth that:

"It was then, according to the inscription in the great temple of Edfu, that Seth was so enraged that he faced Horus for a series of battles - on the ground and in the air - for god-to-god combat. Of this combat there have been found several versions.... What is interesting at this point is the fact brought out by E.A. Wallis Budge in The Gods of the Egyptians: that in the first involvement of men in the Wars of the Gods, it was the arming of mankind with the Divine Iron that brought victory to Horus:

It sounds sort of like they had some kind of airplanes and weapons like we have today. It is possible that there was an advanced civilization around those days.

I read some of the old interpretations of the texts and past handed down oral information about this. It sure sounds like they had some sort of flying ships, but then again, maybe they got the ships from the people in India or China, which would be hot air balloons, also the chinese have had gunpowder for three thousand years. Maybe there is a mistranslation in what they call god. Both those Asian and Hindu cultures back thousands of years ago had gods associated with them. The Hindu people transported spices with balloons it appears. They had a chunk of burning rock they used to fuel the balloon, probably coal.

That does not explain the ancient airplane looking pictures back then though, and there supposedly are these pictures and metal replicas in a half dozen cultures, making me think that we were not really the ones who designed the airplane, it may have been something someone saw that caused them to design the airplane. Man seems to be monkey see monkey do through history.

Well ATS used to be like that (openminded) but now ??

Explaining todays reality not that difficult , but explaining it to others a different game. Most people are quite happy in their little thought cubicle following MSM and believing everything science tells them.

Eventually every evidence can be denied ,(what the heck does that even mean 'evidence' ?). And if the evidence cannot be denied any further people get discredited , people move along ignorant of what is obvious 'there is another civilization on earth'.

Hey guys, . . . .

. . . for the Annunuki to come to earth in the first place may have a simple explanation . . .

To rape, pilliage and plunder.

Simply put; the Annunuki may have been looters and carpetbaggers who played the same power games that nations play today. To supply arms, subversion, corruption.

It's said that Lemuria preceded Atlantis and both civilisations met with violent ends.

Both of those are said to precede our humanity.

To assume that both Lemuria and Atlantis were human civilisations is perhaps a mistake.

. . . . I wonder.


Phage?

Here's an article that suggests Robert Oppenheimer considered atomic weapons were used in the ancient past.

The reference is towards the bottom of the article.





J. Robert Oppenheimer (April 22, 1904 – February 18, 1967) was an American theoretical physicist, best known for his role as the scientific director of the Manhattan Project, the World War II effort to develop the first nuclear weapons, at the secret Los Alamos laboratory in New Mexico. He is famously refereed to as “the father of the atomic bomb”.At the Trinity test site in Los Alamos New Mexico he uttered the words :

“Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds”,

after he had seen the fireball glowing after the bomb had been dropped. This quote has become infamous and it is actually chapter 11 verse 32 of the Bhagavad-Gita, a scripture which has been revered by Hindus for thousands of years.

Although Oppenheimer never converted to Hinduism nor did he ever refer to himself as a Hindu, Hindu philosophy did influence him greatly perhaps more than anything else. He never prayed to Hindu deities or ever went to a Mandir (Hindu temple). He was never a Hindu in a devotional sense, but he did take up Sanskrit lessons so he could better understand the Gita in its native tongue.

Oppenheimer, although raised in a Jewish environment, was deeply affected by Vedic philosophy.His brother said that Oppenheimer found the Bhagavad-Gita “very easy and quite marvellous… (and) was really taken by the charm and the general wisdom of the Bhagavad-Gita”.

Oppenheimer also claimed that, “access to the Vedas is the greatest privilege this century may claim over all previous centuries”

Remarkably he even once hinted at the possibility of weapons on par of the nuclear ones who was working on in previous eras, particularly those of the Ramayana and Mahabharata.

While he was giving a lecture at Rochester University, during the question and answer period a student asked a question to which Oppenheimer gave a strangely qualified answer:

Student: “Was the bomb exploded at Alamogordo during the Manhattan Project the first one to be detonated?

Dr. Oppenheimer: “Well — yes. In modern times, of course.


Some people suggest that Oppenheimer was referring to the Brahmāstra weapon mentioned in the Mahabharata.The appreciation didn’t stop there. So much so he always gave the book (Bhagavad Gita) as a present to his friends and kept a copy on the shelf closest to his desk.
