Anunnaki who are they? The creators of our civilization

The Anunnaki (also transcribed as Anunaki, Anunna, Ananaki) are a group of deities that appear in the mythological legends of the ancient Sumerians, Akkadians, Assyrians, and Babylonians.

Anunnaki who I am

The Anunnaki are the most influential deities in the pantheon, they were the descendants of An, the god of the heavens, and their main function is to judge the fate of humanity.

According to Mesopotamian mythology, the Anunna were, initially, the most powerful gods and lived with Anu in the sky.

In the poem Enûma Elish, it was Marduk who created humanity and then divided the Anunna between heaven and earth and assigned them tasks. Then the Anunna, grateful to Marduk, founded Babylon and built a temple in their honor called Esagila.

The reinvention of the term Anunnaki through its Acadian form, Anunnaki, emerged in 1964 after the publication of the "ancient Mesopotamia: portrait of a dead civilization", by Assyriaologist Adolph Leo Oppenheim, who popularized this concept.


It was Zecharia Sitchin who further spread the term of the Anunnaki.

The earliest known uses of the term Anunnaki come from inscriptions written during the reign of Gudea and the Third Dynasty of Ur.

In the early texts, the name is applied to the most important and powerful deities of the ancient Sumerian pantheon: the descendants of the god-heaven An.

Zecharia Sitchin published a dozen books known as the Chronicles of the Earth of the '70s that lingered further in the study of the ancient Anunnaki.

In the books published by Sitchin, the Sumerian tablets of cuneiform writing and the biblical texts were presumably translated into their original writing revealing fascinating details that quickly gained popularity among the readers.

In the book The Twelfth Planet, the author describes the arrival of the Anunnaki on Earth from an alleged planet called Nibiru some 450,000 years ago.

The Anunnaki were tall beings, about 3 meters tall, pale skin, long hair and beards, which would have settled on Mesopotamia and, thanks to genetic engineering, accelerated the evolution of Neanderthals to Homo Sapiens contributing with their genetics, thus creating humanity.

The story of how the Anunnaki created humanity is very similar to the creation of the man of God, as written in the Bible. The story tells that Enki took the clay and gave it shape despite the fact that his first trial had not succeeded.

The early humans regarded the ancient Anunnaki as gods, as they were extremely intelligent to them and possessed technologies that humankind had never seen before.

Some authors claim that the evidence of the Anunnaki can be found in the Bible, where they are called "Nephilim", although some other translations call them "giants".


According to Sitchin's writings, the technology and power of the Anunnaki are still far from our reach, since the Anunnaki had the ability to travel in space and genetic engineering 450,000 years ago.

It is believed that the ancient Anunnaki have greatly contributed to the Earth with the technology that is still unknown to us and that have been involved in the construction of pyramids all over the world and in numerous other ancient megalithic sites.

Sitchin's hypotheses were rejected by scientists, historians and archaeologists, who disagree with his "translation" of ancient texts and his misunderstanding of physics.

So who were the Anunnaki? They were just part of a great ancient legend? Or is it possible, as many authors say, that the ancient Mesopotamian deities were actually responsible for the creation of our civilization?
