As I understand it, Marduk personifices the planet scientists thinks hit young Earth (Tiamat). This collision resulted in the formation of our Moon.
The prevailing hypothesis today is that the Earth–Moon system formed as a result of a giant impact: a Mars-sized body hit the nearly formed proto-Earth, blasting material into orbit around the proto-Earth, which accreted to form the Moon.

Hello ATS community I see there is more knowledge to share of the ANNUNAKI and their activities.
So my question for those of you who can answer is do you feel these are real stories.
If so how do you view MARDUK EVOL OR GOOD?
Also how do you view EA/ENKI & LLU/ENLIL. EVOL OR GOOD
Thanks in advance
In Babylonian mythology, Tiamat is a chaos monster, a primordial goddess of the ocean, mating with Abzû (the god of fresh water) to produce younger gods. In the Enûma Eliš she opposes when Abzû conspires to kill the younger gods, and she warns the most powerful of those, Ea, who puts Abzû under a spell and kills him. Etymologically it appears related to the Sumerian words TI (Life) and AMA (Mother).
Later when Ea's son Marduk creates problems for her by playing with sand storms and tornadoes, she conspires to retaliate by creating eleven frightening monsters and erecting her son Kingu as their general, but this plot fails when Marduk slays them all including Tiamat herself. From Tiamat's body the world is formed, land and sea.
Tiamat was known as Thalattē (as a variant of thalassa, the Greek word for "sea") in the Hellenistic Babylonian Berossus' first volume of universal history. It is thought that the name of Tiamat was dropped in secondary translations of the original religious texts because some Akkadian copyists of Enûma Elish substituted the ordinary word for "sea" for Tiamat, since the two names had become essentially the same, due to association.

Marduk's original character is obscure but he was later on connected with water, vegetation, judgment, and magic. He was also regarded as the son of Ea (Sumerian Enki) and Damkina and the heir of Anu, but whatever special traits Marduk may have had were overshadowed by the political development through which the Euphrates valley passed and which led to imbuing[who? academics or people of the time? clarification needed] him with traits belonging to gods who in an earlier period were recognized as the heads of the pantheon. There are particularly two gods—Ea and Enlil—whose powers and attributes pass over to Marduk. In the case of Ea, the transfer proceeded pacifically and without effacing the older god. Marduk took over the identity of Asarluhi, the son of Ea and god of magic, so that Marduk was integrated in the pantheon of Eridu where both Ea and Asarluhi originally came from. Father Ea voluntarily recognized the superiority of the son and hands over to him the control of humanity. This association of Marduk and Ea, while indicating primarily the passing of the supremacy once enjoyed by Eridu to Babylon as a religious and political centre, may also reflect an early dependence of Babylon upon Eridu, not necessarily of a political character but, in view of the spread of culture in the Euphrates valley from the south to the north, the recognition of Eridu as the older centre on the part of the younger one.

I think you have entirely missed the point.
It isn't 'just old Babylonian myths' when for the past 2000 years we have been killing and arguing with each other over a story which was copied from earlier stories.
Also, you seem to be ignoring the occult/esoteric allegorical meanings and insights... things such as astrotheology or worshipping astronomy.
Another important reason to study this subject is linguistics, like I mentioned in my last post.
Maybe some people do 'worship' these old 'myths'... but IMO they are ignorant.

This thread has sort of revealed to me that there's still people who actually believe old Babylonian mythology and/or religion are actually true.
Why the Babylonian mythology & religion? Why not that of other ancient cultures? Is it just this thread or is there an entire movement of you people out there?
I had never known that people were still following Babylonian religion until this time, and this strikes me as both shocking as well as quite odd.
They're just old myths, people. No more real than the easter bunny.

Are you sure? I thought it was the other way around.
I thought Enlil was the true blood and Enki half blood to royalty.
Yes, 100% sure of it Annee. Enlil's mum was a Concubine of Anu while Enki's mum was the Dragon Queen, Anu's wife.

Annee, look into George Kavassilas.
It's hard to put it as eloquently as he does.
Earth is about to go through a major shift, we are already feeling it... this is directly related. It's also a point of major evolution, which these beings are extremely jealous of.

I don't concur with her information, and do think its a scam, but....there is an energy there and I've watched a few of the videos on her now, and she has a female energy, whereas the entity, who is No DOUBT lying as to who he is, I think those kind of entities lie alot.
