"Putting on the Game Face"
|Let me begin this discussion with some brief background. Zecharia Sitchin, as a young man, believed the word "Nefilim," had been incorrectly translated as "Giants" in the Book of Genesis. In those days nobody was supposed to question the bible. The King James version was venerated as the unadulterated word of GOD. Sitchin felt that a more accurate translation was "Those who came down." He taught himself to read Sumerian and derivative languages which included Akkadian, Babylonian and ancient Hebrew. From an early age he was something of a savant, showing unusual aptitude and skills in the language arts. He was well qualified to see the truth incised into the cuneiform script and interpret what he was reading. He might not have had all the academic degrees, but he was well grounded in the science of his day. He lived in modern times and saw flight, aerospace, semiconductors, fiber optics, the computer, internet and the cell phone. He was over ninety when he died.
A key to his understanding occurred when it dawned on him that the language artifacts he was translating referred not to mythology but rather actual events. What was being described so lucidly by highly intelligent scribes was not campfire banter, but rather an objective rendition of what these scribes saw themselves or gleaned by reading the texts of their equally qualified predecessors. They served a new ruling class that had just taken the reins from the Anunnaki, who were space travelers from another planet. The Anunnaki had reigned over the fertile crescent for many thousands of years. Sometime after the great flood they packed up and departed.
It was not uncommon for the Nefilim rulers to reign for a thousand years or more. In a tablet that shows the accession of kings from earliest times, there are the early kings who commonly ruled for a thousand years or more, who were the Nefilim and then their were their humanoid descendants, who did well to rule for a decade or more. What the tablets were describing was unimaginable in the 1800s compared to what we know today. However, when academicians first successfully broke the code and began translating scripts they assumed the stories were myth. To Sitchin, these tablets were anything but and had laid dormant, gathering dust for tens of thousands of years, waiting for their story to be told...which he obligingly did.
The scribes wrote about things they'd witnessed, experienced, heard from their elders and read from mud tablets passed down from the beginning of recorded history. An ancient civilization of space travelers, THOSE WHO CAME DOWN , about 445,000 thousand years ago, landed in the Persian Gulf. There were fifty (50) in the advanced party. The tablets cover the early years in great detail. The Sumerians referred to the space travelers as the Anunnaki.
Let me stress here that these tablets are the first written artifacts of recorded history. It would seem that they should be given more weight than they get. Digging up bones is fine, sifting through burial mounds is fine, however written proof is as good as it gets and we should pay more attention to it.
The Anunnaki had a ruling class called the NEFILIM. The Anunnaki were the rank and file. ENKI was a son of ANU, King of Nibiru. He was a Nefilim, and while the son of a king, his birth did not place him in the line of succession. He was a formidable commander and led the advanced party that first came ashore. He built the first settlement by siphoning off the waters and turned the swamp into lands suited for habitation. He also launched the gold mining operations and built a space port. For many thousands of years Earth was a profitable colony of Nibiru. Then one day there was a revolt in the mines of South Africa. The Anunnaki had become weary of the harsh working conditions and when they could endure no more, launched a strike. The shutdown severed a vital link in the distribution of gold from Earth to Nibiru. ANU, the King, came to Earth and brought with him Enlil, Enki's half brother and legitimate heir to the throne. The two sons became rivals and eventually started a war.
Enki, already had a plan for rectifying the labor problem but had to get official approval. It was to take an earthly hominid woman, fertilize her eggs with Anunnaki sperm and emplant them in surrogate Anunnaki females. The offspring would then be shipped to South Africa and become the new labor force. Some were skeptical but business concerns carried the day. The go ahead was given. Enki's half sister was his chief medical officer on the expedition and put in change of the biological aspects of the undertaking.
So the stage was set for the most amazing development in the history of Mankind.
