Some of the Sumerian Myths regard making offerings to the Anunaki where they would place their gifts on high and burn special incense, the stories claim, the G-d’s were drawn to it right away and swarmed around it like hungry bees and were pleased.
So do you think that this current transition into our "Golden Age" has something to do with actual gold? Because we are about to give it all up to our creators? And since we are giving away all of our gold, the banks are going under with no collateral/value/cash in return for the gold that will be lost.

One does have to wonder why a metal so seemingly useless as gold should have been valued in all times and places, even in ancient cultures as widely seperated from each other in space and mentality as the Incas, the Chinese, and the ancient Europeans, for example. It's a strange thing. From the earliest recorded history man has lusted after gold...why? Its a weak metal, you can't do much with it but use it as decoration. Its useless for weaponry or most forms of practical ancient metallurgy. Why, then, should it have been the king of metals in all times and places?.....
Oh NO ... I want my sound card! I miss my music and videos. My PC's dead and I reformatted til I get new one, hopefully soon. When I'm back in business I'll be able to watch some of these vids, see what I've missed ..
I'd like to think that any race advanced enough to create humanity would have no need for a yellow metal we call gold.
Bible reference gifts of Gold, FRANKENSCENCE AND MYRRH. what about F and M would they be the incenses needed to lure these high aliens down?
And they thought my post was far fetched! Everyone is a critic!
Interesting, but is gold really rare? There seems to be an abundance of it. Jewelry shops in every city, gold jewelry sold in Walmart, KMart,Sears,etc. Rings, earrings,toe rings,necklaces,fillings, watches.
Maybe the aliens needed it for a cure, or the powers that be know its a cure and are hoarding it for those reasons.
Because it's pretty, it sparkles and all, and it's easy to work it cuz it's so soft. Needless to say girls have always liked it as an adornment so what further incentives do we need? gold rules.
This makes no sense. If the Annunaki are real, and they created us to mine gold, then why are we not an aquatic species? 3/4 of the Earth is covered in water, and the oceans are the most geologically active place on the planet. There is far more gold on the ocean floor than on the continents.
A super-intelligent form of mollusk which can survive the temperature and pressures in the deep oceans would make a much more sensible slave race to construct on a largely aquatic world like ours. Even better, as mentioned before, any race technologically capable as what the Annunaki are claimed to be, would have doubtless managed to create advanced robotics systems and nano-technology. Such technology would be far more suited to mine not just the Earth, but other planets which are hostile to advanced life forms - such as Mars, Venus, Mercury, and Ceres.
Who says that they didn’t create another species specifically for that task? There could be creatures mining the oceans in a similar way.
From a Judean/Christian perspective which we all have partially ingrained into us it’s hard to conceive that we ourselves are a highly adapted and specialized life form, with an ability to think, reason, and perform tasks no other known species on the planet can. How then did this singularly unique distinction fall upon us?
Who's to say that they did? Who's to say that the Annunaki even exist? Is there any substantiated reason to? Why would you believe something to be true when there is absolutely no evidence even suggesting that such a thing might be?
As for the rest of your statement, I think evolution and emergence play a much more important role than you may suspect. I don't think there is any inherent (or at least, apparent) purpose behind the universe. The universe itself is nihilistic. The fact that we search for purpose in our lives does not mean there actually is a purpose. This is why the question "Why are we here" has never been sufficiently answered. It's not meant to be answered. It's like a riddle that leads you to assume the answer lies beyond the individual, and you'll never find it because really there is no inherent purpose to the universe. Purpose exists, because we exist to create such a concept. So the question isn't so much, what is the meaning of my life... but rather, to what meaning do I assign my life?
The latter question, now, is much easier and fulfilling to answer.
ok, first of all, gold is not "worthless" it is the element that has the highest electroconductivity, behind that is silver, and then copper. Think about it! Silver and copper are used all the time in our wiring systems, gold would be used but its not economical. So I think it is a very interesting theory, but possibly the gold is needed for some gov't operation. gold would be useful with computers, vehicles, anything that needed to transmit electricity.

After having watched this video of an alleged "witch" which has been seen & taped soaring around Mexico, one thing came to mind, and that was "Ishtar". Anyone familiar with Sumerian text will , hopefully we can discuss this and make more of it if needed be.
