The Beginning - Pt.17

And so, Marduk built a city which reached the sky. They made clay ‘brick and burnt them by fire’ to serve as stone, because there were no stones in the area. “Therewith a tower whose head the heavens can reach they were building.” We can immediately see the biblical parallel of the tower of Babel in this part of the texts. But Enlil was not impressed with this at all. He realized that this was an attempt by Marduk to show his power and influence, which had to be kept in check. And just as it says in the Bible, “… God came down to destroy the tower and confuse their language, because if they could achieve this, the would be able to do anything.” The clay tablets till it almost verbatim: “If this we allow to happen, no other matter of mankind shall be unreached… This evil plan must be stopped… From their sky ships havoc upon the rising tower, fire and brimstone they rained.” But this was not enough for Enlil, he wanted Marduk far away from him and to confuse his earthling followers, so they could not understand each other, just as it says in the Bible. “To scatter abroad their leader and his followers… Henceforth their counsel to confuse… Their language I shall confound, that they each other’s speech will not understand.” Those were very confusing words when seen in the light of an ‘all-loving God’ who is supposed to want the best for his creation and certainly not the kind of words we would expect from GOD. But when seen in the true ancient perspective, it now makes complete sense why ‘god’ would seem so angered by the building of a tower. These tablets also educate us that Marduk was the original creator of the city of Babylon. Just as with the construction of the pyramids, which we still struggle to comprehend, the marvels of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon must have been the work of an advanced being like Marduk, the Anunnaki god. But with his expulsion from Babylon, Marduk set his sights on a more exciting prospect, which would bring him loyalty and notoriety, Egypt. This was 310 years since the new Earth count began 7400 BC. This would place the event at 7090 BC or possibly even 3490 BC if the later date for Earth-count years is accepted (3600 years later). The later date would fit the rise of the early Scorpion King and the subsequent pharaohs in Egypt.

Sitchin gives us a very clear indication that Egypt had been ruled by the Anunnaki gods for some 12,300 years, which basically started soon after the flood ended and the Pyramids were constructed. We must remember that Marduk was the god of Egypt before he made a play for power in Babylon, but upon his return he found that his younger brother Ningishzidda had changed everything. “Ningishzidda as its master he there found… What Marduk had once planned and instructed, by Ningishzidda was overturned.” One of the things Ningishzidda was accused of, was sending Horon or Horus “…to a desert place depart, a place that has no water.” This line is very important in helping us string together the rule of the god Horus in southern Egypt, known as Upper Egypt. It was predominantly a desert area and Horus was much more worshiped there than in Lower Egypt. The quarrel between the brothers lasted for 350 years, as long as the two Egypt parts were divided. Once again this timeline seems to fit perfectly, because it is estimated that the Scorpion King united Upper and Lower Egypt in about 3100 BC, which saw the rise of the true Egyptian Empire.

After the intervention of Enki, the talented Ningishzidda was convinced to depart for the “land beyond the oceans… With a band of followers thereto he went.” We must recall that this was a talented architect who designed the pyramids and the scientist who formulated the human DNA. His symbol was similar to that of Enki, consisting of entwined serpents representing life and creation, constantly referred to as ‘The Winged Serpent’. I mentioned before that we sometimes feel uncertain whether it is Enki or Ningishzidda being referred to as the ‘Winged Serpent’ because their symbols were so very similar and even their abilities and characters were very close. Based on the tablets however, it was most likely Ningishzidda, who had such a huge influence on the very early American cultures, teaching them most of what they knew including the building of the incredible structures in that part of the world. But there is a further interesting twist to this part of ancient history. Prior to this, Ningishzidda lived in Africa and probably used skilled African laborers who were trained in mining and building for his projects there. There were most likely also the ones who were mainly responsible for building the pyramids under his supervision. It therefore makes perfect sense that the distinctly African features of the Olmecs could have been the labor force of Ningishzidda when he first arrived in the Americas. They were very simply his entourage of African builders and miners. Furthermore, it would explain why the writing style of the Olmecs in Mexico resembles the writing styles of various African tribes.

I have to remind you that Egypt was inhabited by humans and gods for many thousands of years before the pharaohs made their appearances. There is plenty of evidence of that in the Narmer Plate, which was found and dated to around 4468 BC and depicts the unification of Egypt by the Scorpion King Narmer. There are also the Egyptian sky charges which point out celestial constellations of some 14,000 BC. In fact, it is recorded so precisely that those specific chars can be traced to exactly 11:57PM on the 3rd of July, 14,000 BC. Historians say that it is not clear who was responsible for unifying Egypt, but the tablets tell us in no uncertain terms that it was Marduk. What is very exciting to me personally and I see it as a little victory over conservative historians, is that the Scorpion King has finally been proven to have been a real historic figure. For many years he was seen as another mythological god who lived only in ancient people’s minds. This kind of discovery will hopefully lead the way in getting people to recognize that the other gods of our past were also real live beings. For many years, Menes was credited with being the first pharaonic king of Egypt. But now there is lots of evidence that King Narmer was actually the mysterious Scorpion King who predated Menes by more than 1500 years, if not more. In the years leading up to Menes, during the time of Narmer the Scorpion King, there is a lot of reference to the god Nannar, who was Enlil’s son and was possibly active in Egypt before Marduk finally took control of it. Is it possible that Narmer was Nannar’s son? Who was responsible for unifying Egypt? Or did he achieve this under the rule of Marduk? The Scorpion King’s images cover the ruins of a fully fledged city, which was excavated at Hierakompolis dating back to 3500 BC. Furthermore, a dig at Abydos delivered 160 small bone and ivory plates, the size of a large stamp, which contain the oldest known versions of early hieroglyphic text. Gunter Dryer, a German archaeologist believes that they we the possessions of the Scorpion King, since they were found in his tomb. Could this be another example of how the Anunnaki gods were slowly introducing the earthlings to the art of writing? Because these finds are now possibly the oldest examples of written text on Earth. It seems that Marduk took over this part of the world around 3500 BC, which is also probably the reason why we knew so little about Narmer the Scorpion King, because he did all the initial work for Marduk, before the Pharaonic era was introduced. And besides, it is possible that Narmer was of Enlil’s clan and this would not have been pleasing to Marduk. All future pharaohs would have to be related to Marduk and his Igigi or Neteru (watchers) in some way. All this information would make Narmer well over 1500 years old by the time he was buried. Could that be possible? Why not? Noah or Ziusudra was 36,000 years old according to the Sumerians’ count. But that was all on account of him being a human son of Enki. There is therefore no reason to marvel at the age of King Narmer if hew as the son of Nanner, a full Anunnaki god. But he too would eventually die as all human half-breeds did.

By the time Marduk took control of Egypt, he had the whole of the land to himself. North and south were unified and he began building his dynasty as the great god Ra, “The Bright One”. Enki was known as Ptah – “The Developer” and Ningishzidda was Thoth or Tehuti – “The Divine Measurer”. From the beginning, Marduk/Ra wanted to stamp a brand new authority on this land of his. The first thing he did was to erase the face of Ningishzidda off the Lion Sphinx statue. “To erase his memory, Ra on the Stone Lion his image with that of his son Asar replaced.” But Marduk went a lot further to differentiate his land from the others. he changed the counting into tens and not by sixty; he divided the year into ten periods; and “the watching of the moon by the watching of the Sun he replaced… The two lands of the North and South into one Crown City he united.” This ancient statement clearly suggests that it was Marduk after all, who was behind the unification of Egypt, which means that Narmer was acting on his instructions. I hope that this will finally put this part of Egyptian history to rest. Probably not. It is painfully clear that Marduk was a very talented and yet a highly frustrated individual who wanted to get his own back for the years of being overlooked. He was going to do everything in his power to prove his point and rise above the rest of the gods. He did not waste any time before he introduced a new religion and instituted Pharaonic reign to mark the beginning of his new breed of civilization. But his biggest mistake was to declare himself as ‘god above the rest’. The Pharaohs had to be half-god, half-earthling and were chosen mostly form the group of Anunnaki gods known as ‘Neteru’ or ‘The Watchers’ whose job it was to look after the earthlings, but it was actually more like ‘spying’ on the humans than anything else. The Neteru could very well be the so-called angels who mysteriously made their appearance to humans when they least expected them. These were after all the early biblical times and the occurrence of angels would become almost a daily affair. Suddenly the mystery of the ever-present angels does not seem so mysterious any more and there seems to be a plausible reason for their presence in the tightly controlled human society.

But the new ‘lofty royalty’ created an immediate class structure and allowed the kings to behave dismissively towards their followers. After all they were ‘half-god’. It also explains why the kings were so obsessed with their gods, because deep inside they aspired to be like them; fully fledged immortal beings, able to travel to heaven. According to Sumerian scripts the first king to be appointed by Ra was Mena, known as Menes to historians. At this point we reach a crucial stage in our philosophical debate. Because suddenly, prehistoric myth, meets recognizable historic fact. Is it not incredibly arrogant of our conceited civilization in the 21st century, that we choose which parts of history we believe and which pars we deem as implausible? For no other reason than we don’t understand it, or even worse, we simply don’t believe it.

Enki was pleased that his son Marduk was making such good progress in his region, so he gave him all kinds of ME, to help him with the process. All except the knowledge to revive the dead. “Then all manner of knowledge, except that of the dead reviving, to Ra he gave.” This would prove to be a major gripe with Marduk, who would do anything to gain that knowledge. We read how they controlled the flow of the Nile (Hapi) to benefit their farming and how “… abundance in the fertile soil quickly came, man and cattle proliferated.”    

Ninharsag named a constellation in Inanna’s honor, to share with her brother Utu, it would become known as the Age of Gemini. But the lands given to Inanna, the third region, was not doing so well. “Far away in the eastern lands, beyond seven mountain ranges, was the Third Region… Zamush, Land of Sixty Precious Stones, was its highland realm called.” This was obviously the Indus Valley region where Inanna’s personality and sexuality rubbed off on the humans. She was after all the goddess of love and sensuality. We read about twin cities which were erected by her and used for food storage, among other things. Those must have been the cities of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro. They were both built from the same bricks and in the same style and are the same age. According to the Sumerian tablets they were built 860 years after the start of the Earth year count. This could mean either 2940 BC or 3800 BC. This would have been either 1 Shar or 2 Shar after the last visit of Anu. The very curious link to corroborate these events is the mysterious Indus Script. The tablets inform us tat Inanna introduced a new language and a new way of writing. The Indus Script has puzzled scholars for many years and to date is still not deciphered. This must have been the new language introduced by Inanna, the ‘goddess of love’ and the first officially appointed ruler of the Indus Valley region. The way in which Indian culture utilized precious stones in their customs, clothing, and jewelry, also indicates that the Indus Valley was indeed the ‘Land of Sixty Precious Stones’ and the land of Inanna.

The ME which Inanna requested were lost on the way to her in a bizarre set of interceptions by her opponents; misunderstanding of their new respective languages, and deaths of the carriers. Ultimately the result was that the third region of the Indus Valley did not develop as ell as the other regions. “In the Third region, civilized mankind did not fully blossom.”

This brought the period of growing instability among the Anunnaki and the beginning of the end. The growing power quest by Marduk/Ra in Egypt and the resistance of the others began to cause skirmishes among their human followers. Many of the lesser gods were being worshiped in temples and sacred precincts and the first brothel was established by none other than Inanna. “House for nighttime pleasure she established.” Inanna’s mourning for Dumuzi seemed to reappear in moments of possible insanity. She began to imagine that a half-god earthling by the name of Banda was her beloved Dumuzi. It is possible that her subtle levels of instability caused Inanna to initiate the ‘catastrophe’ in time to come. But Banda married Inanna, the pure offspring from Enlil and the couple had a son called Gilgamesh who was two thirds god. Gilgamesh is recognized as a historic king, once again crossing the line between fact and fiction. As time went by, he realized that he had a strong divine DNA and he began to lust for the same privileges which were reserved for Anunnaki only. Like most humans today, he was especially taunted by the idea of immortality. One of the most famous of all Sumerian legends it the “Epic of Gilgamesh” in which he ventures into the lands of the Tilmun, the space port where the spaceships and other secret Anunnaki items are kept, in search of immortality. His mother Ninsun pleaded constantly with her great uncle Uto, to guide Gilgamesh to Tilmun. “Endlessly Ninsun to Uto appealed… Let Gilgamesh to the landing place go.” The journey is written in great detail on a number of tablets and has become one of the most studied ancient bodies of written word. The argument still continues however, whether it was fictional or historical because there are historians who refuse to accept this epic tale as part of history, while they accept many of the other ancient writings. Shame on them.
