The Anunnaki

“Those from Heaven, to Earth Came”

“Centaur” – a crossbreed between the Anunnaki and horse

According to a controversial theory based on an interpretation of ancient Sumerian texts, the Anunnaki, are aliens from the planet Nibiru which became the theoretical 10th member planet of our solar system several billion years ago.    This planet, is believed to have an elliptical orbit, but unlike all other planets in our solar system, moves clockwise rather than counterclockwise.   In fact, according to this theory on its maiden voyage into our universe, Nibiru collided with another planet (Maldek) in our solar system creating Earth when it (Nibiru) inadvertently drifted into our galaxy by gravitational pull from several of the sun’s outer planets; thus becoming the fabled “Planet X”.

Further, according to this theory, the inhabitants of the planet Nibiru were the Nefilim or giants described in Genesis (6:1-2, 4) of the best selling book, The Holy Bible.

Regardless, the planet (Nibiru) is said to have a complete orbit only once every 3,600 years which has allowed the Anunnaki easy access to Earth on mutable occasions via space craft, beginning more than 400,000 years past, when Nibiru reached its closest point with our world. Subsequently, Earth was colonized for the purpose of mining for gold and other minerals using a race of beings (the Igigi) for the “heavy lifting” that ultimately rebelled.  While here, they established a spaceport near ancient Sippar (in Iraq), and lived in a kind of idealistic society as a small colony.

In those days of old, Earth was more densely populated by all manner of beasts, particularly during the long time of “the rebellion” by the Igigi. This, coupled with the fact that the Anunnaki had centuries earlier attained the skill and knowledge needed to genetically splice DNA, they determined it best to replace the dissenting labor force.    

That is when the most amazing creatures were created; such as the Centaur, which was a crossbreed between the Anunnaki and the wild horse. This was among the early attempts to design a strong and intelligent worker. Although that project was eventually left by the way-side, needless to say this is where the myth about the Centaurs comes from. 

The intent was to create a creature for the long term; so “the perfect worker” was designed to toil their mines, farms, and other enterprises throughout various regions of earth, particularly in the vicinity of the expanse that would come to be the Sumerian culture, which today is often called the Cradle of Civilization.     

Here, they created Modern Man, Homo sapiens, through genetic manipulation with themselves and the ape man of the day; the likely candidate: Homo erectus.   Through this genetic manipulation a culture superior to all others native to Earth was “designed”.  The new species provided “gifts to the gods” in the form of slave labor, food and other material goods.  In exchange for these efforts, they (the Anunnaki) gave the ancient Sumerians to-be and others their architectural, agricultural, astronomical, and cultural training.  

According to most evolutionist’s, humanity on Earth would have likely evolved with-or-without help of genetic manipulation, although it would have taken much, much longer. Time estimates range to as much as forty million years.  In other words, absent the help of the Anunnaki, it’s very un-likely that you’d be reading this publication – at least just yet!

The Anunnaki have no defined appearance known to record, however, according to mythology, the Anunnaki are believed to look a lot like humans in their original forms, but are much taller; but most importantly are believed to be a “shape-shifting” race, possessing the ability to mold themselves into many shapes and sizes. 

This characteristic was regularly promoted by the Nibirian / Anunnaki practice of disguising themselves as fish-like-humans, lion-like-humans, bird-like-humans, and other such creatures in order to make sure the “new human species” and labor force would worship them as token gods. In any event, this exercise in masquerading helped insure the Nibirians themselves no longer had to physically work on Earth because this activity naturally instilled fear and ah into the vast majority of the natives throughout the many regions of earth.

For thousands of years the Anunnaki used man-kind as their servants, their workers and even their solders during various battles amongst themselves.  Aside from using mankind’s labor for hundreds of mining operations our ancient ancestors were forced to assist in constructing their cities, palaces, temples, and astronomical installations on all the continents of Earth.  Expanding from their beginnings in Mesopotamia, then to Egypt, India, Central and South America; within several thousand years, the Anunnaki’s stamp could be witnessed to the farthest reaches of the planet.

A circumstance violently opposed by the up and coming or developing race of Earth’s new and improved humanoids from time to time was the worship of the Nibiruan beings as “gods”. Its of little surprise that this activity did begin to decline with the emergence of a one-god concept. Nonetheless, wars between the native inhabitants usually resulted in fierce differences in belief systems, and the Nibirians thrived on all the humans fighting each other instead of fighting the “gods”, who were the real enemies, hiding behind the their many disguises.

Some researchers say the eventual demise or the departure of the Anunnaki from Earth was the result of a nuclear war with opposing factions of similar beings from the planet Nibiru or perhaps other advanced life forms from a completely different star system (it’s said they are many). Others say they are yet living among us as direct descendant’s no less – However this theory requires that you recognize the chapter and verses referenced here-in-above in the Book of Genesis (6:1-2, 4): “6) 1. And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2.  That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.” . . . “4. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them . . .” (KJV), as being an accurate statement.

The idea of the ancient gods being aliens of some sort may seem unusual, but the inclination to make the gods of old into “flesh and blood” beings is not at all that new.  Such thinking dates all the way back prior to the time of the Greek historian Herodotus (5th century BC), who is commonly referred to as the “father of lies”; such thinking was further developed by the Greek philosopher Euemeros (late 4th century BC), his specialty was mythology by the way.   This tendency is known as “euhemerism” or “evemerism”,  which claims that the minor gods of various cultures were not “mythical” at all, but were in reality kings, queens, warriors and such. So you could say this Anunnaki hypothesis is a recent version of evemerism.

The Invention of Christmas


 Santa’s  Depiction, 1881 

Hear’s a shocker, it seems that there’s actually a savior born on a regular basis right here in the United States.  A December 2013 publication in the British Medical Journal reported that roughly 1 in 200 pregnant young American women claim to have become pregnant without experiencing sex; and to add creditability to that assertion; nearly 31% of those women claiming to have had a virgin pregnancy, had signed a chastity pledge.  In other words, you might want to stock up on frankincense and myrrh; could be we have a lot of virgin birth ceremonies to attend.

The moral of the study seems to be that the legendary virgin birth reported a little more than 2,000 years ago by Mary and Joseph is more common than we thought.  Otherwise approximately ½ of 1% of the new American mom’s referenced above, to put it bluntly: Tell lye’s, great big lies.

The birth year of Jesus is estimated among modern historians to have been between 7 BC and 2 BC; however the exact month and day of his birth remain unknown.   Never-the-less, his birth is referenced in two of the four gospels of the New Testament. By the late 4th century (354 AD), the Western Christian Church had decided Christmas, (December 25), a date later adopted in the East, was the day of the year Christians was to celebrate the birth of Christ.  Prior to then, “Epiphany” was celebrated on January 6, although technically this festival emphasized the celebration of the baptism of Jesus instead of his birth.

The date of Christmas is generally believed to correspond with one or more of the ancient pagan festivals that occurred near solstice (i.e., the Roman winter solstice festival of Saturnalia). So it’s not surprising to learn that in those early days the birthday of Mithras, the ancient Persian Sun god, was celebrated on December 25th.

The truth is that prior to and throughout the early Christian centuries, “winter festivals”—especially those centered on the winter solstice—were the most popular of the year in many European pagan cultures.  Therefore, it’s of little wonder that the leadership in the Christian Church recognized the importance of having a Christian Holiday during the same time frame; what better candidate to fill the void that Jesus.

Since then, many modern Christmas customs have been directly influenced by such festivals; including gift-giving, merrymaking, greenery, lights, and Yule logs, plus various foods from Germanic feasts.  Pagans in Scandinavia celebrated a winter festival called Yule, held from late December to early January.    Many Scandinavians still call Christmas Jul (“the Danish Christmas”). Because northern Europe was last to Christianize, its pagan traditions had a major influence on Christmas as well; an example being the Koleda (an ancient pre-Christian winter festival), which was incorporated into the Christmas carol (also called a noël) .

Christmas”, has been known by various other names throughout its history.  For example the Anglo-Saxons referred to the feast as “Midwinter” or, more rarely, as Nātiuiteð, a Latin term meaning “nativity” or “birth” which is from the Latin term nātīvitās.   In Old English, Gēola (“Yule”) referred to the period corresponding to January and December, which eventually paralleled with the Christian Christmas. “Noel” (or “Nowell”), yet another name for Christmas, didn’t entered the English language until the late 14th  century and is from the Old French term noël or naël, which came from the Latin terms nātālis diēs, meaning “birth day”.

In addition to all that, many popular customs associated with Christmas developed independently of the remembrance of Jesus’ birth, with certain elements having roots in pre-Christian holidays that were celebrated around the winter solstice by pagan populations who, as time marched on, were converted to Christianity. As may have been noted above these customs included, but are not limited to, the burning of the Yule log from Yule and gift giving from Saturnalia over the centuries.

You may also be a bit surprised to learn that the atmosphere of Christmas has frequently evolved since the holiday’s beginnings, ranging from a sometimes unruly, drunken, carnival-like festival in the Middle Ages, to a tamer family-oriented and children-centered theme introduced in the 19th-century.  In fact, the celebration of Christmas was banned on more than one occasion by certain Protestant groups, such as the Puritans, due to fears that it was simply too pagan or unbiblical.

It’s January now and far too many of us are just beginning to recover from the economic hardship associated the post Christmas gifting.  Perhaps we’ll recover this year in time to do the same thing next year.  

Could it be that the early Romans had this holiday right, after all during Saturnalia (also the most popular Festival of the year), it was a time of celebration (from the 17th through the 23rd) and visits with friends & family were frequent.  But then too, in those days, gift-giving was common-place.  The only saving factor to that time honored tradition is that traditionally wax candles, and earthen ware figurines were given.  Everyone participated in those days, even slaves, so common sense suggests that such gifts were most likely affordable.

Having frequently been interested in the many stories reported by “Abductees”; perhaps its time for us to consider a few Abduction Stores that you probably have not thought of prior to this publication. 

I hope to relate some of these stories in the context of “first person”, not in an under-handed attempt to lessen the believability of the event(s) but to try to lend credibility to each case, because to me at least, first person stories somehow add an undisclosed amount of authority to a story. Regardless, the primary purpose of this endeavor is as always, an effort to allow you to ponder on the possibilities being placed forward for your consideration – as well as for your enjoyment.  Then too, as the author I am afforded huge latitude in regard to selecting a writing style.

Abductions, especially those of the Alien variety, have been the subject of conspiracy theories and science fiction storylines (notably the TV Series: The X-Files) that have speculated on stealth technology and other such things, of which  are often considered essential for the reported phenomenon to exist.

Surprisingly the first alien abduction claim to be widely publicized was the “Betty and Barney Hill” abduction case back in 1961.  Many such reports of the abduction phenomenon have been made around the world, however they’re most common in English speaking countries, and especially in the United States. Of course, there are other, earlier documented accounts that we seldom talk about.  For example the biblical story of Jonah being swallowed by a rather large “whale” after being tossed overboard is a much earlier case of Abduction.  After-all Jonah reportedly lived inside the “whale” for three whole days before it “spit the reluctant prophet onto dry land”; this event was first recounted, according to most historians, some time before 760 BC.

Here’s how the story goes in the Prophet Jonah’s own words: “A little while back while discussing various topics with the Lord God, he instructed me to go forth and preach repentance to the city of Nineveh, you know the place – the most populous city of the Assyrian Empire located on the east bank of the Tigris River. Well, since you, me, and the Lord are well aware that the folks of Nineveh are best known for their wickedness, not to mention the fact that the whole place is one of Israel’s fiercest enemies, I decided to ignore him.”

“Most everyone knows how stubborn a fellow I can be, so if you guessed that I did just the opposite of what the Lord God ask me to do, you’d be right.   I went straight down to the seaport of Joppa and booked passage on a ship to Tarshish, heading directly away from the city of Nineveh. You might say I decided my best bet was to run away from the Lord.”

“Now the ship had only left sight of land only a short while when the Lord God sent a violent storm upon us, which threatened to break the ship to pieces. The ship’s crew became so terrified they swiftly cast lots which determined that I was responsible for the bad storm. Without delay I told them to throw me overboard because deep down I knew they were right; they first tried to row me back to shore, but the waves got even higher and the storm became much more intense.   This quite naturally intensified their fear of the Lord God dramatically so the sailors ended up tossing me into the sea anyway, and wouldn’t you know it, the water immediately stilled.”

“Because I am such a poor swimmer, I figured I would surely drown.  Instead I must have been swallowed by some kind a great fish that was provided by the Lord God I’d guess. Regardless, the next thing I new, I was in the belly of the whale, and believe you me, I repented and cried out to the Lord God in prayer. Yep, I praised him a lot, ending with the statement: ‘Salvation comes from the Lord’.”

“For three whole days I remained inside that giant fish and all that praying eventually paid dividends because God apparently decided to lay the law down to the the whale, because it vomited me (the reluctant profit that I am) onto dry land on the banks of the Tigris River just outside the city of Nineveh; the rest is history”.

Moses is regarded as the most prominent Hebrew religious leader of the ancient era, as you may already know he is believed by most Biblical Scholars to have lived from 1393 to 1273 BC; but did you realize that some folks insist he was abducted just prior to his alleged death?

As many of us know, Moses is best known as being responsible for parting the “Red Sea” which allowed the en-slaved Hebrews to escape Egypt; obtaining ten laws (The Ten Commandments), which told people how to live after a couple of meetings with God on Mount Sinai; and guiding the bulk of the former slaves through the wilderness for forty years where they endured all manner of hardships.

Truth be told, there is no specific information about the death of Moses, only that he died and God buried him; yet his grave was never found (Deuteronomy 34:5,6).   For this reason it’s believed by many that Moses left Earth for the heavenly abode at the ripe old age of 120.  Like several other religious icons, some say he was abducted just prior to death, rather than being buried by his God here on earth; admittedly a weak argument, but on the other hand, we know that Elijah was taken up to somewhere in his earthly physical form without dying (2 Kings 2:11). 

More than 400 or so years later, Elijah as you know was a Hebrew prophet and a real “wonder-worker” in the northern kingdom of Israel during the reign of Ahab (9th century BC), that is,  according to the Biblical Books of Kings. In those texts, he raised the dead, brought fire down from the sky, and was eventually taken up in a whirlwind; some say in the company of a chariot with flaming horses or riding in a chariot guided by flaming horses.  Ether way, it would be hard to deny the man was not Abducted.

Just as Moses used his famous rod as a symbol of his divine authority, Elijah’s Mantle (you might call it an ancient over-coat) was used for similar purposes; for example Moses used his rod as a “tool” when he parted the Red Sea (Exodus 14:16) and Elijah used his Mantle as a “tool” for parting the waters of the Jordan River (2 Kings 2:8 KJV).

In the final days of Elijah’s time on Earth, he was constantly accompanied by his friend and supporter Elisha who was destined to succeed Elijah in his works of Prophecy after his abduction, or following his rather swanky departure.

We were very fortunate to encounter Elisha for a very brief interview within an hour of the apparent disappearance of his long time friend and prophet Elijah.  Here is his description of the mind bending event: “Elijah had only just used his Mantle (the one I’m wearing now) to establish a dry pathway across the River Jordan for our crossing.  He had just minutes before ask me, and I quote – ‘what I wanted from him before he departed’ for he knew his time with me was short.

“I went out on a limb and asked that ‘a double portion of his spirit be placed upon me’.  You see he had always told me that I must pick up his role as Teacher and Prophet in the event of his continued absence. In short, it’s always been clear to me that I desperately needed as much of his spirit as I could possibly get, especially if hope to fill his shoes; yes indeed.  In any event, although he said it would be hard to do, he said if the circumstances were right he would make it so”.

“Along about then as we walked along talking all the while, a thundering noise sounded just above us and when we gazed into the overcast sky there appeared a beautiful chariot, and the horses that pulled the chariot seemed to be on-fire, yet the horses of fire and the chariot were somehow separate”. 

“Honestly I was terribly frightened, even though I new Elijah was still by my side.   Then before I realized what was happening, my Friend and Teacher, Elijah was suddenly lifted up and into the mysterious vehicle by a whirlwind of some sort, yep, into the fiery contraption he swiftly went, which quickly whisked away and out of my sight through, above, and beyond the overcast sky.  The only thing remaining of Elijah is this Mantel of his which I’m now wearing; you know, I think he was able to cast it aside whilst he was within the whirlwind.  Oh, if you’re wondering if it serves me, Elisha, like it did him, I can only say that when I smote the waters of the Jordan with it a short while ago they parted hither and thither and I crossed to this side”.

In the historical sense, all of these events are traditionally viewed with a Religious slant. In other words the individuals involved are not considered “Abductees” but are among the lucky few who avoided death by way of “Ascension” into Heaven. The one exception may be Mary, mother of Jesus, who was raised to heaven by the Lord God’s power and therefore is called “The Assumption” by the Roman Catholic Church.

To be fair, several other world religions teach similar beliefs: For example Islam teaches that Muhammad ascended into heaven alive at the site of the Dome of the Rock. However it’s significant that this ascent in 621 AD was only temporary (a single nights journey); he returned to Earth and latter died in 632 AD. Regardless the Prophet Muhammad is said to have been “picked-up” by the Angel Gabriel.

And . . . 

Those of the Hindu faith are taught that Yudhishthira of the Mahabharata is the only human to have crossed the bridge between mortals and heaven in his mortal form.

The three incidents detailed above (Jonah, Moses, and Elijah) are borrowed from the teachings of Judaism.  According to the post-biblical Jewish Midrash, only eight people went to Heaven, the Garden of Eden, or Paradise in the flesh: 1. Elijah;  2. Serach, the daughter of Asher; 3. Enoch; 4. Eliezer, the servant of Abraham; 5. Hiram, king of Tyre; 6. Ebed-Melech, the Ethiopian; 7. Jaabez, the son of Rabbi Yehudah ha-Nasi; and 8. Bithiah, the daughter of Pharaoh.

That’s right; the addition of Moses to this elite group was my idea.

Most of us believe death is considered the normal end to an individual’s life here on Earth and by the natural order of progression is the first stage of an afterlife; in other words a prerequisite for entering some sort of Heaven. The absence of death is considered in a word: “exceptional” and is typically considered a sign of a Supreme Being’s special recognition of that individual’s virtue.  I guess that means that all of us virtuous folks can simply hope, or, continue to look to the skies for friendly Abductors!
