Our origins as a slave species and the Anunnaki legacy in our DNA

• Reveals compelling new archaeological and genetic evidence for the engineered origins of the human species, first proposed by Zecharia Sitchin in The 12th Planet

• Shows how the Anunnaki created us using pieces of their own DNA, controlling our physical and mental capabilities by inactivating their more advanced DNA

• Identifies a recently discovered complex of sophisticated ruins in South Africa as the city of the Anunnaki leader Enki

Scholars have long believed that the first civilization on Earth emerged in Sumer some 6,000 years ago. However, as Michael Tellinger reveals, the Sumerians and Egyptians inherited their knowledge from an earlier civilization that lived at the southern tip of Africa and began with the arrival of the Anunnaki more than 200,000 years ago. Sent to Earth in search of life-saving gold, these ancient Anunnaki astronauts from the planet Nibiru created the first humans as a slave race to mine gold—thus beginning our global traditions of gold obsession, slavery, and god as dominating master.

Revealing new archaeological and genetic evidence in support of Zecharia Sitchin’s revolutionary work with pre-biblical clay tablets, Tellinger shows how the Anunnaki created us using pieces of their own DNA, controlling our physical and mental capabilities by inactivating their more advanced DNA—which explains why less than 3 percent of our DNA is active. He identifies a recently discovered complex of sophisticated ruins in South Africa, complete with thousands of mines, as the city of Anunnaki leader Enki and explains their lost technologies that used the power of sound as a source of energy. Matching key mythologies of the world’s religions to the Sumerian clay tablet stories on which they are based, he details the actual events behind these tales of direct physical interactions with “god,” concluding with the epic flood—a perennial theme of ancient myth—that wiped out the Anunnaki mining operations.

Tellinger shows that, as humanity awakens to the truth about our origins, we can overcome our programmed animalistic and slave-like nature, tap in to our dormant Anunnaki DNA, and realize the longevity and intelligence of our creators as well as learn the difference between the gods of myth and the true loving God of our universe.

Chapter 14
Myths and Lies
The Living Gods

I recall vividly the first day I discovered a story about prehistoric mythological gods and their adventures. It sounded like the world’s greatest fairy tale and yet it possessed some kind of mystery that made it feel more real than any other story I had ever heard. The characters were so well defined. Flying through the skies, crossing the world in a flash, causing the thunder and rain, and bringing love and fertility to people while somehow being engaged in a perpetual battle for some righteous cause. It was mainly the Greek, Roman, and Egyptian gods that I was so taken with. Although I was told on many occasions that they were not real, and they were merely imaginary deities who arose out of people’s overactive minds over thousands of years, I began to wonder what the possibilities were that maybe somewhere in the distant past such deities actually existed on Earth. But my history teachers were steadfast in their pronouncement that they were just imaginary characters of simple people who needed something to believe in. Those simple, primitive people must have had great imagination, I thought, saddened by the reality that modern man no longer has such a vivid imagination . . . such detailed imagination . . . such convincing imagination, which could last for thousands of years. But in the Western education system, driven relentlessly by Judeo-Christian monotheistic beliefs, any teacher who would carelessly admit to the possible existence of ancient gods would be rapidly dismissed. That little part--which has firmly held our culture in a stranglehold for 2,000 years--I did not know for some time.

Then one day a small technicality dawned on me: all the great civilizations of the world have their own mythology filled with magnificent gods. It made me wonder how they all heard about these gods. A well informed thirteen-year-old friend of mine provided the answer. “People passed the stories down from one generation to another for thousands of years and that is how they spread all over the world,” he said convincingly. Of course! That is what people did, they told stories to their children and the stories traveled around the world being told by mothers everywhere. That seemed like a plausible solution to me, and I was satisfied for a while. But as the years went by and I started to delve into more juicy literature, I suddenly wasn’t so sure anymore. How is it possible that every civilization around the world had a similar set of gods they prayed to? And the gods did not take thousands of years to reach them; they suddenly appeared out of the blue, taking control of the local humans’ lives and destinies. This seemed to present a logistical problem. Even today, with international flight, with media covering every corner of the world, it is still difficult to get a message across, which people will accept, swallow, and buy in to. People must be really impressed by something to embrace it, or they must be enticed by the promise of reward, or forced by the threat of violence. It is therefore very difficult to swallow modern-day explanations of how the primitive people of the world all got to hear the stories about these fantastical gods.

What makes these assumptions even sillier is that the people of ancient times had no idea who lived 200 miles away from them, let alone 10,000 miles away. How could those amazing stories of majestic gods have traveled such distances? And who was telling those stories to the people 11,000 years ago? Who actually created those stories? It gets even more confusing when we realize that all the ancient cultures had very much the same group of gods they prayed to, feared, made offerings to, were protected by, were punished by, and whom they seemed to have regular contact with. If this sounds strange, let me quickly remind you of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and other biblical legends who had exactly those kind of experiences with their god constantly. It was as if the gods were controlling the people’s lives on a daily basis in ancient history. Is it possible that the gods of the ancient Mesopotamians and Greeks were the same gods of Noah and Abraham? The many descriptions in the Sumerian tablets by kings and priests of their gods are very similar to the descriptions by the biblical characters of god. Let me also ask, why has it been 2,000 years since god has physically appeared before someone of international stature, or anyone else for that matter, and had a conversation with them?

The puzzle of the ancient gods is a crucial element in the quest for our origins. Let’s face it, the insipid explanations of how the primitive people created these gods from their imagination when they were bored thousands of years ago is not plausible; it stinks of our modern-day arrogance. There are simply too many holes, too many incredible coincidences. The most visible coincidence is that all the ancient cultures had virtually the same gods with the same hierarchy. There is always the supreme god responsible for creating the world, his sons and daughters, and their offspring. And in each case the god was incredibly well profiled. The people knew which aspects of their world each god was responsible for, how the gods looked, what they wore, how they traveled, who they married or had kids with, what they liked and disliked, and what offerings to make to them if they were angry. In most cases people even knew where the god actually lived.

The gods were powerful with abilities way beyond human comprehension and yet they looked like humans, ate like humans, and displayed the same emotions--love, hate, loyalty, and anger. This amazing similarity has baffled historians and anthropologists for years. Yet the moment we venture beyond our small-minded outlook, we can begin to recognize the genetic link between humans and their gods.

Erich von Daniken introduced the concept of "Ancient Aliens" to the world in 1970. He is the undisputed father of what has now become a subject of growing interest among millions throughout the educated world. Zechariah Sitchin added weighty evidence and credibility to von Daniken's theory in the early 70's through his interpretation of humanity's earliest written account of history, rediscovered in the buried, cuneiform, baked-clay libraries of the world's oldest civilization, the Sumerians. In the intervening years many sober-minded and gifted scientists, authors & researchers have added additional substance with facets of evidence which contribute to the validity of the likelihood for the actual presence of an advanced, non-terrestrial civilization that colonized Earth in approximately 430,000 B.C. (perhaps earlier) and co-inhabited this planet with our distant Homo erectus ancestors. I read von Daniken's first book "Chariots of the Gods" as a young man in 1971, and Sitchin's "Twelth Planet" not long afterward. Since that time I have personally read and researched almost every book put into print on this and any related subject which could potentially confirm and establish the reality of our human legacy through the intervention of advanced beings from another part of the universe. While perhaps a hundred or more individuals, too numerous to list here, have made substantial contributions to the validity of the Ancient Astronaut Theory in the interim, through my exhaustive personal research I have only encountered a handful of writers and books during this time who have been able to synthesize all of the information and knowledge into a single, comprehensive, reasonably accurate retelling of mankind's true history of evolution over the last half-million years. Michael Tellinger and this book are one of the those very few. The list also includes: Paul Von Ward's "We've Never been Alone," Neil Freer's "God Games, Lana Cantrell's "The Greatest Story Never Told" and, I submit in all humility, my own book "Intelligent Intervention." I rated this book "Five Star" because of the author's cumulative research and ability to tie the many loose ends of human history into a coherent and acceptable replacement for the antiquated and worn-out myth that is presently being taught in our schools, churches, colleges and shamefully passed off as the story of human history. While Tellinger's book, along with mine and the three others I referenced, are not going to be best-sellers any time soon (they are each too controversial at this stage of human knowledge and current acceptability) they will steadily gain credibility and acceptance with each new generation of the 21st Century and beyond. At the same time I encourage each of you that have an open mind, are reasonably well educated and interested in the true story of humanity on Earth to read this book and each of the other four I referenced in this review. Your understanding of history will be forever changed. One small, constructive criticism of Telliger's book ... I find the title to be unfortunate and perhaps misleading. While slavery has been a very real component of the human story from our artificially created human genome to the present, from my own research I am not as convinced that the Gods (advanced beings) that are responsible for our current human condition were not as sinister as this book describes and advoca

I recommend that everyone who has read the "Twelfth Planet" series read this book, as it a review and interpretation of the information gleaned from the Sumerian tablets and so eloquently translated by Zecharia Sitchin. Michael Tellinger takes the works of Sitchin, and a number of other scholars, and develops the underlying concept to a perfectly logical conclusion. He is also very careful to point out repeatedly that nothing in the story that is unfolding conflicts with the almost universal belief in the existence of a Supreme Being, be he called God, Allah, or Jehovah. My suggestion to all interested parties is that you read the Twelfth Planet FIRST and then read The Lost Book of Enki, after which, you will HAVE to read this one.

I tend to believe much of the theories here. Tellinger provides sufficient proof for some of his conclusions. Some reasoning is questionable. There are a few of his conclusions which need more support. This book is a wonderful resource to help offer another origins theory opposed to the biblical "stories" which, to me are myths upon legends of actual events. I look forward to more studies, archaeological finds, and truths to be revealed.

Was a great book until he couldn't resist sneaking in his crazy comments on George Bush.

Humans created gods, not the other way around. Furthermore, Tellinger gives little in the way of human innovation, intelligence, and creativity by stating that the advancement of humanity was from these alien astronauts. Rubbish.
