Do you believe that ancient Sumerian were depicting actual historical events, or illustrating legends of their gods?
That the "Aliens" who created the humans were the Draco and NOT the Annunaki, AND that there were 12 other humanoid species contributing to the creation of mankind... the Draco and Annunaki are reptilian in nature, the Draco are from this solar system, the Annunaki are not....

On top of that, they also know about one more planet that we haven't' discovered yet, called Nibiru, that they say their Gods came from.
Just because there’s an agenda, in this case money, doesn’t mean it’s false.

Findings during archeological digs in what WAS ancient Sumeria, the oldest and what I believe were one of the the most advanced civilization on earth, revealed hundreds of thousands of tablets and clay cylinders. These tablets contained historical recording of many aspects of their culture, including transaction records and cultural scripts. But an estimated 2-3,000 of these tablets were in reference to our true origin as humans and our creator race, the Annunaki, who Sumerians record as visitors from the sky. These texts detail the origins of Adam and Eve and explain how we, as homo sapiens, came to be.
Let me guess. You read that Sitchin, didn't you, and didn't check on his sources, did you?
Now, I realize that nobody else probably majored in ancient history or took a world literature course in ancient literature -- but Sitchin took ONE document (not a whole bunch of them) and rewrote it to serve his own needs.
The other stories from the same time period (such as the one about the stone boy and the quarrel between the gods over the fate of the god of the wind and the story of Tammuz and Ishtar and so on and so forth) just don't support Sitchin's lunacy.
And the Sumerians sure didn't write about Adam and Eve. For one thing, the gods created SEVEN pairs of men and women. Of course, since Sitchin only read one document, he didn't know about that.
(Sumerians claim the Sphynx and the pyramids served as landing markers for our visitors from space, as such also for the face on Mars).
Oh dear. No, the Sumerians didn't. You really should take an ancient literature course if you're going to write about this.
It is truly amazing to think about the Sumerians, who existed around 6,000 BC, and seemingly arose from nowhere, already having developed music, language, modern mathematics, a calendar, as well as the concept of time as we know it.
I suppose they're not teaching world history like they used to. No, they didn't have modern math, and the calendar developed over time out of several calendars.
According to Sumerian text The Annunaki were from a planet called Nibiru,
"Nibiru" means "his royal highness" and is one of the godly titles given to Marduk. It wasn't a planet. We have all kinds of documents where they look at the movement of Venus (a VERY important planet to them) and Mars and so forth. No Nibiru.
Truly. You need to read some of the other things they wrote.
And there wasn't a global flood, either.
They had a remarkable civilization with laws and established trade routes and a rich cultural history. They had stories -- wonderful tales that we have that still exist today.
I don't know why Sitchin has to make these things up. He also decided to rework "Inanna in the Underworld." But he pretends like the rest of the literature doesn't exist because he hasn't yet figured out how to twist it to his theories.
Because his fantasy really does NOT work with the rest of the tales (and it works pretty badly with Inanna in the Underworld.)
