The Sumerian Anunnaki Great Deluge (Noah’s Flood)
We continue our journey into the history of Religion by exploring the account of The Great Sumerian Anunnaki Deluge (Noah’s Flood) that can be found in the Records of Sumeria as told in Zechariah Sitchin’s Earth Chronicles.
The Flood occurs after the expulsion of Adam and Eve from Enlil’s base station at Edin due to Enlil’s displeasure at the realisation that contrary to his instructions, his rival Brother and Chief Anunnaki Scientist ENKI, had created a species of ‘Primitive Worker’ that was both highly intelligent and could independently reproduce.
As we shall see, when the opportunity presented itself, Enlil would take full advantage of the forces of Nature to destroy the ‘pest’ or ‘abomination’ Enki had created.
Why The Sumerian Anunnaki Let Humans To Be Drowned In The Great Deluge
Life Outside The Garden: Noah & The Sumerian Nephilim
After ADAPA / ADAM and TI.TI / EVE had been expelled from Edin Base Station and sent into the wild following the events recorded in Genesis, they gave birth to twin boys, KA.IN, and ABAEL.
In time they gave birth to more children as Agricultural skills were imparted to Man by the Anunnaki.
However, from about 100,000 to 30,000 BC, the Anunnaki began to mate with humans due to a female shortage amongst the Anunnaki.
According to Sitchin, these events are referred to in the (Genesis: Chapter 6 Verse 4):
‘The Sons of God came in unto the daughters of men’.
Over time, the term ‘Nephilim’ was coined to refer to the children that came out of the relations between the Anunnaki and Humans.
Ziusudrah/Noah was part Anunnaki, being born out of the marriage between Enki and a Human female.
The Nephilim as Half-Anunnaki came to be regarded as ‘Demi-Gods’, and in time they assumed positions of Kingship over pure Earthlings, and it is in this past that the roots of ‘Royal Bloodlines’ can be found.
Pact Of The Sumerian Gods: Nibiru’s Orbit & Disaster On Earth
The human population continued to expand and Enlil became annoyed and worried by the increase in the numbers of human beings, whom he regarded as pests.
Around 13 000 BC the Anunnaki became aware that the next time Nibiru passed near the Earth in the course of its Solar Orbit, a tidal wave would be triggered on Earth.
The Anunnaki on Nibiru had correctly calculated that the passing of Nibiru close to Earth would result in a deluge/flood on the Earth as the ice sheets covering its poles would melt and raise the Oceans’ Water level.
In order to ensure that his plans to cull mankind would succeed, Enlil gathered the Anunnaki in a Council where a pact was made between the Anunnaki to keep the information of the coming flood from the Human population.
But Enki did not agree with this decision, and so he conspired to save Mankind, his own creation.
Enki resolved to provide Ziusudra with a Blueprint for the construction of an Ark on a Tablet. The Ark would serve both as a vessel for Noah and a storage for Noah’s domesticated animals as well as the DNA of the animals collected around the Earth by Enki and Ninhursag as part of their ongoing Genetics project.
Cause Of The Sumerian Flood/Deluge: A Natural Tidal Wave
The Anunnaki went into Orbit above the Earth as the flood approached, and in line with the observations made by the Anunnaki, the Polar Ice Caps melted into the Oceans causing a tidal wave, coupled with severe torrential storms lasting 40 days and 40 nights.
The Ark managed to keep Ziusudra / Noah and his precious cargo safe with the Ark resting on the peaks Mount Arrata when the flood finally subsided.
Ziusudra then left the Ark and built an altar, offering a lamb sacrifice in thanks to Enki for saving him.
In the meantime, the Anunnaki decided to return to observe the damage caused by the flood, and when Enlil noticed the smoke from Ziusudra’s altar, he realised that Enki had broken his oath to the Gods to remain silent about the flood.
Life In Sumeria After The Great Deluge
The flood marked the end of the period known as the ‘Olden Times’, and in order to build Civilization on the Post-Flood Earth more efficiently, the Anunnaki divided into regions/Kingdoms:
- Mesopatamia in the valley drained by the Tigris and Euphrates rivers;
- The Sinai Peninsula;
- Nile valley Kingdom which would become Egypt.
