Gosh, I'm sorry if I wasn't clear on that.
Ea did those genetic manipulations AFTER the Anunnaki arrived in Sumer.
Here's what happened… After the Anunnaki got kicked out of India, they arrive in Iraq and find the place already populated by the indigenous
Hurrians and their king, a guy by the name of Alalu. (pronounced Ah-lay-loo.)
Anu apparently came on like some poor guy newcomer into the area and begged a job from Alalu, and the king, not suspecting anything, gave him a job.
But Anu was clearly a conniving liar and a sneak and obviously plotting a takeover from the get go! 'Cuz once Anu was in position and working for the
Hurrian king, he begins a coup and attacks Alalu!
There was a huge fight and Alalu was driven out of kingship. Alalu flees "to the dark earth," or more specifically, a town called "Abzuwa" which
appears to have been the Hurrian name for ancient town of Eridu in Sumer.
In the Babylonian version of the tale, the Hurrian Alalu actually appears to have been the original "Lord Abzu of Eridu."
Then according to the Babylonian Creation Epic (the Enuma Elish), Ea sneaks up on Alalu's family in Eridu, in some way drugs Alalu and his family in
their sleep, (maybe they drugged the towns water supply?) and then Ea MURDERS Alalu while he is unconscious!
THEN Ea puts on Alalu's robes and crown and declares himself the new Lord of the Abzu!
Is that low or what?
Alalu's wife, Tiamat, (evidently a queen) is understandably furious, and she and Alalu's son, Kumarbi start this huge war with the Anunnaki. And
personally, I can't say that I blame them one whit! The Anunnaki were complete a-holes who lied, connived and murdered their way into Sumer!
No wonder the tribe of Anu was driven out of India! The Hindu scholar, David Frawley, points out that the Rig Veda calls the tribe of Anu "the people
of the harmful speech" and says it's not clear whether it's a reference to their language or the fact that they were considered liars & untrustworthy.
Well, I'll tell ya', there sure was nothing about what the tribe of Anu did when they first arrived in Sumer that was even remotely trustworthy! They
were a bunch of lying thieves and murderers! They were horrible people!
Eventually, Ea's son, Marduk, finds a way to murder Tiamat, and then the Anunnaki capture Kumarbi, (called 'Kingu' in the Babylonian version) they
blame the whole war on him, slit his throat, bleed him dry and used his blood to create a slave race for the Anunnaki.
Nice guys, huh?
Most people have probably never read the Hurrian version of the tale and to my knowledge, those texts aren't online. (At least I haven't been able to
find them.) Yet they are all important, and in my estimation, without the Hurrian side of the story, it's pretty hard for anybody to figure out what
really happened back then.
Reading the Sumerian and Babylonian texts is cool, but really, they only give one side of the story. I guess I'm a firm believer in the old adage that
every story has two sides...
I've got a couple of different translations of the Hurrian texts in my home library. I'll try to type up some of the more important verses for you so
you can read them for yourself.
Okay? Hang tight; I'll get back to you when I'm done typing…
