The Anunnaki – Ancient Aliens Debunked?
The Anunnaki debunked?
Is it possible to completely debunk everything ancient alien theorists have said about the Anunnaki?
Millions of people are intrigued by the idea that extraterrestrials, specifically the Anunnaki, came to Earth in the ancient past. This is evidenced by the success of shows like Ancient Aliens and by websites like this.
Did the Anunnaki come down from the “heavens”? Many people believe they did. Theories range from the Anunnaki guiding and teaching mankind to the Anunnaki creating human beings, perhaps by modifying indigenous early humanoids with their own DNA.
One can find many references to the Anunnaki being Reptilian aliens. There also seems to be a lot of people who believe there is some connection with the Anunnaki to Atlantis.
Giorgio A. Tsoukalos said, referring to the Ancient Sumerian texts,
“It says word for word that these beings descended in flying vehicles from the sky.”
Chris White says that is pure fiction and nothing even similar to those words can be found anywhere. He has challenged anyone to show anywhere this is written in the Sumerian texts.
Tsoukalos said, “The term Anunnaki means ‘those who from the Heavens came’.” And of course he says it in a very melodramatic way.
White says this is incorrect and that the word means ‘Princely seed, or princely blood’.
What or Who Are The Anunnaki?
The Anunnaki (also transcribed as: Anunaki, Anunna, Anunnaku, Ananaki,Annaki and other variations) are a group of deities in ancient Mesopotamian cultures (i.e. Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, and Babylonian). The name is variously written “da-nuna”, “da-nuna-ke4-ne”, or “da-nun-na”, meaning “princely offspring” or “offspring of Anu”.
The Oxford Companion to World Mythology
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).
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).

Zecharia Sitchin translated the name “Anunnaki ” a bit differently. It is from his translations that we get, “Those who from the Heavens came.” Was Sitchin wrong?
Established scientists and academics have rejected Sitchin’s interpretations. They say he was unqualified and ignorant of basic principles. In fact, according to White, Sitchin had no education or certification in anything other than journalism.
How did a man with no formal education in the field attain such a unique position? How did he become an expert on Sumerian cuneiform writing? How did an entire, successful TV series get national acclaim based almost entirely on what Sitchin has written?
Anunnaki – Ancient Aliens Debunked
Here is the video I referred to. If you are seriously interested in the Anunnaki I recommend watching this.
Now, this is still new to me and I dont have all the facts and knowledge but there is a lot here that makes sense. I look forward to comments that people will make here. I have often found the comments to be even more interesting than the actual blogs.
I am very interested to see if anyone may provide good reason to refute anything that is talked about in the video. Can anyone debunk the debunkers?
