Ancient Aliens The ANUNNAKI 13 ☯ BLOOD 12THp NEW Documentary 2017

The Anunnaki (also transcribed as: Anunaki, Anunna, Anunnaku, Ananaki and other variations) are a group of deities in ancient Mesopotamian cultures (e.g. Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, and Babylonian).[1]

The name is variously written "da-nuna", "da-nuna-ke4-ne",
or "
da-nun-na", meaning "princely
offspring" or "offspring of Anu".
[1] According to The Oxford Companion to World
, the Anunnaki: "...are the Sumerian deities of the old
primordial line; they are chthonic deities
of fertility, associated eventually with the underworld, where they became
judges. They take their name from the old sky god An (Anu)."

By her consort Anu, Ki gave birth to the Anunnaki, the most
prominent of these deities being Enlil, god of the air. According to legends,
heaven and earth were once inseparable until Enlil was born; Enlil cleaved
heaven and earth in two. Anu carried away heaven. Ki, in company with Enlil,
took the earth.
Some authorities[who?] question whether Ki was regarded as a deity
since there is no evidence of a cult and the name appears only in a limited
number of Sumerian creation texts. Samuel Noah Kramer identifies Ki with the Sumerian mother
goddess Ninhursag, and claims that they were
originally the same figure.

Their relation to the group of gods known as the Igigi is unclear – at times the names
are used synonymously but in the Atra-Hasis flood myth the
Igigi are the sixth generation of the gods who have to work for the Anunnaki,
rebelling after 40 days and replaced by the creation of humans.
Jeremy Black and Anthony Green offer a slightly different perspective
on the Igigi and the Anunnaki, writing that
"lgigu or Igigi is a term introduced in the Old Babylonian Period as a
name for the (ten) 'great gods'. While it sometimes kept that sense in later
periods, from Middle Assyrian and Babylonian times on it is generally used to
refer to the gods of heaven collectively, just as the term Anunnakku (Anuna)
was later used to refer to the gods of the underworld. In the Epic
of Creation
, it is said that there are 300 lgigu of heaven."
The Anunnaki appear in the Babylonian creation myth, Enuma Elish.[6] In the late version magnifying Marduk, after the creation of mankind, Marduk
divides the Anunnaki and assigns them to their proper stations, three hundred
in heaven, three hundred on the earth. In gratitude, the Anunnaki, the
"Great Gods", built Esagila, the splendid: "They raised high the
head of Esagila equaling Apsu.
Having built a stage-tower as high as Apsu, they set up in it an abode for
Marduk, Enlil, Ea." Then they built their own shrines.
The Anunnaki are mentioned in The Epic of Gilgamesh when Utnapishtim tells
the story of the flood. The seven judges of hell are called the Anunnaki, and
they set the land aflame as the storm is approaching.
According to later Assyrian and Babylonian myth,
the Anunnaki were the children of Anu and Ki, brother and sister gods, themselves the
children of Anshar and Kishar (Skypivot
and Earthpivot, the Celestial poles), who in turn were the
children of Lahamu and Lahmu ("the muddy ones"), names
given to the gatekeepers of the Abzu (House of Far Waters) temple at Eridu,
the site at which the creation was
thought to have occurred. Finally, Lahamu and Lahmu were the children of Tiamat (Goddess
of the Ocean) and Abzu (God of Fresh Water).
