Sumerian Aliens

Whether you know it or not, you may have recently been exposed to Sumerian aliens. Ever see a show on the History channel called Ancient Aliens? Most people have, especially the ones reading this article. The show explores the possibility that extraterrestrials either helped, or at times may have hindered, the evolution of human beings. So yes, the idea of ancient aliens was around before the show. The History channel is responsible for bringing to the mainstream though.

I believe the theory was started by a man called Zecharia Sitchin. One of the only few people who could decipher cuneiform writing, Sitchin’s direct translation suggests that the ‘gods’ referred to in the texts, were actually Sumerian aliens. This would make a very convenient explanation for Sumer’s explosion on to the scene (circa 4400 BC). What I mean is that the civilization seems to ‘appear’ out of nowhere, in recorded history.

When civilizations develop, there is usually a learning period or trial and error stage. This doesn’t seem to be the case with ancient Sumer. In just a span of 500 years they discovered irrigation agriculture, mathematics, and even complex astronomy. The Sumerian aliens explanation would account for the sudden jump in advancement. Either that or we evolved at an exponential rate. Think about it, if it only took 500 years to go from cavemen to stargazing math students, why aren’t we farther along in our evolution?

Another name for the Sumerian aliens in ancient text was Anunnaki. It’s hard to nail down a direct translation but anunnaki basically means “those who from heaven to earth came”. According to Wikipedia it means “those of royal blood”. Out of all other translations that I came across, this was the only one that had no mention of heaven or the sky in it. If Sitchin were correct, and I’m not saying that he was, the ancient E.T. hypothesis could fill in the gaps to some questions.

I may be hitting a nerve with some people, but I really feel that it’s important to keep an open mind when it comes to possibilities like these. Not to say that Sitchin was right on the money, but with everyone telling a different story, it’s hard to discredit the Sumerian aliens theory. The more research that you do, the more contradicting theories you’re going to run into. When you’re researching something that’s new to you, pay attention to how you ‘feel’ when you read it. Focus on what resonates with you and leave the rest behind.

This article may have been a bit all over the place because it’s really easy for me to go off on tangents. The idea of Sumerian aliens and Sitchins controversial work isn’t to challenge your beliefs. Hopefully it gets you curious enough to do some of your own research. Like I mention in all of my articles if you would like to have an in depth conversation about this subject, get in touch with me. Who knows? You could wind up discovering something new that proves everyone wrong!

The evidence to support the theory that the Annunaki were very real is compelling. Twenty years ago I started reading Sitchin's work and since have read extensively on this topic. Van Danniken etc. The entire continent of S. America is riddled by a labyrinth of tunnels with smooth walls and right angles, excavated so long ago that they have been overgrown and sheared by 10,000 year old earthquakes. Who did that? It is fascinating to realize that ancient people knew of Pluto and other astronomical data that we claim to have "discovered" in the last 100 years. If having a space probe discover things that spear wielding primitives already knew isn't evidence then what is, right? Good article. Oh, yeah, and I take no offense to anyone else's beliefs, as they EXPECT me not to, so why do we have to apologize every time we express ours? I say, everyone speak your mind and get along. I don't throw eggs at Christians or Buddhists, so why should I have to carry a shield to protect myself from eggs? I do not apologize for not agreeing with any given modality! Cheers!

By saying this I mean no disrespect to any religious groups, But when you replace "flying creatures" and "miracles" with the terms "spacecraft" and "technology" - Everything, the Ancient Scripts, Ancient History, Gods... it all makes sense.
