A Species with Amnesia: The forgotten timeline of Planet Earth after the Great Flood
Are humans really a species with amnesia? Is it true that there is a forgotten historic timeline of our planet? A timeline ignored by mainstream historians?
According to several theories, and historical records, the answer is YES.
Interestingly, numerous cultures around the globe speak of a time when our planet was struck by a great deluge, which the ‘gods’ themselves called upon Earth and early man.
But where does the story of the Grat Flood comes from? Many people are completely unaware that the story of the Great Flood (or the Great Deluge, as the Anunnaki called it) has its origins in Ancient Sumer.
To understand their accounts, we need to travel to Eriu, — modern day Abu Shahrein, Iraq — the first city ever established by the gods, and home to the Ancient Sumerian deity Enki.
Researchers believe this ancient city was built around 5400 BC.
The ancient Sumerian King List supports the theory that suggests Eridu was, in fact, the “city of the first kings,” stating:
“After the kingship had descended from heaven, the kingship was in Eridu.”
In this ancient city, we find the Eridu Genesis an ancient Sumerian Text, which describe the creation of the world, the construction of all ancient cities and the Great Flood, which swept across the land.The Eridu Genesis, which is believed to have been composed circa 2,300 BCE, is the earliest known account fo the Great Flood, predating the more popular Great Flood described in the biblical book of the Genesis.
This is where many researchers have different views.
According to Thorkild Jacobsen, in his book ‘The Treasures of Darkness’:
“After Nintur [Ninhursag] had decided to turn man from his primitive nomadic camping grounds toward city life, the period began when animals flourished on earth and kingship came down from heaven.
“The earliest cities were built, were named, had the measuring cups, emblems of a redistributional economic system, allotted to them, and were divided between the gods.
“Irrigation agriculture was developed, and man thrived and multiplied. However, the noise made by man in his teeming settlements began to vex Enlil sorely, and, driven beyond endurance; he persuaded the other gods to wipe out man in a great flood.
“Enki, thinking quickly, found a way to warn his favorite, one Ziusudra. He told him to build a boat in which to survive the flood with his family and representatives of the animals.”
But if the great Flood did exist on Earth, what happened on Earth prior to the great destruction?
According to The Cosmic Code: The Sixth Book of The Earth Chronicles by Zecharia Sitchin, this is the historical timeline of our planet before and after the great Flood:
EVENTS BEFORE THE DELUGE
450,000 years ago
On Nibiru, a distant member of our solar system, life faces slow extinction as the planet’s atmosphere erodes.
Deposed by Anu, the ruler Alalu escapes in a spaceship and finds refuge on Earth. He discovers that Earth has gold that can be used to protect Nibiru’s atmosphere.
Led by Enki, a son of Anu, the Anunnaki land on Earth, establish Eridu — Earth Station I — for extracting gold from the waters of the Persian Gulf.
Earth’s climate mellows. More Anunnaki arrive on Earth, among them Enki’s half-sister Ninhursag, Chief Medical Officer.
As gold production falters, Anu arrives on Earth with Enlil, the heir apparent. It is decided to obtain the vital gold by mining it in southern Africa.
Drawing lots, Enlil wins command of Earth Mission; Enki is relegated to Africa. On departing Earth, Anu is challenged by Alalu’s grandson.
Seven functional settlements in southern Mesopotamia include a Spaceport (Sippar), Mission Control Center (Nippur), a metallurgical center (Shuruppak).
The ores arrive by ships from Africa; the refined metal is sent aloft to orbiters manned by Igigi, then transferred to spaceships arriving periodically from Nibiru.
Gaining the support of the Igigi, Alalu’s grandson attempts to seize mastery over Earth. The Enlilites win the War of the Olden Gods.
The Anunnaki toiling in the gold mines mutiny. Enki and Ninhursag create Primitive Workers through genetic manipulation of Ape woman; they take over the manual chores of the Anunnaki.
Enlil raids the mines, brings the Primitive Workers to the Edin in Mesopotamia. Given the ability to procreate, Homo Sapiens begins to multiply.
Life on Earth regresses during a new glacial period.
Climate warms again. The Anunnaki (the biblical Nephilim), to Enlil’s growing annoyance, marry the daughters of Man.
The “accursation of Earth” – a new Ice Age-begins. Regressive types of Man roam the Earth. Cro-Magnon man survives.
Enki and Ninhursag elevate humans of Anunnaki parentage to rule in Shuruppak. Enlil enraged. Plots Mankind’s demise.
Realizing that the passage of Nibiru in Earth’s proximity will trigger an immense tidal wave, Enlil makes the Anunnaki swear to keep the impending calamity a secret from Mankind.
EVENTS AFTER THE DELUGE
Enki breaks the oath, instructs Ziusudra/Noah to build a submersible ship. The Deluge sweeps over the Earth; the Anunnaki witness the destruction from their orbiting spacecraft.
Enlil agrees to grant the remnants of Mankind implements and seeds; agriculture begins in the highlands. Enki domesticates animals.
The descendants of Noah are allotted three regions. Ninurta, Enlil’s foremost son, dams the mountains and drains the rivers to make Mesopotamia habitable; Enki reclaims the Nile valley.
The Sinai peninsula is retained by the Anunnaki for a post-Diluvial spaceport; a control center is established on Mount Moriah (the future Jerusalem).
Ra/Marduk, Enki’s firstborn son, divides dominion over Egypt between Osiris and Seth.
Seth seizes and dismembers Osiris, assumes sole rule over the Nile Valley.
Horus avenges his father Osiris by launching the First Pyramid War. Seth escapes to Asia, seizes the Sinai peninsula and Canaan.
Opposed to the resulting control of all the space facilities by Enki’s descendants, the Enlilites launch the Second Pyramid War. The victorious Ninurta empties the Great Pyramid of its equipment.
Ninhursag, the half-sister of Enki and Enlil, convenes a peace conference. The division of Earth is reaffirmed.
Rule over Egypt is transferred from the Ra/Marduk dynasty to that of Thoth. The Heliopolis is built as a substitute Beacon City.
The Anunnaki establish outposts at the gateway to the space facilities; Jericho is one of them.
As the era of peace continues, the Anunnaki grant Mankind new advances; the Neolithic period begins. Demi-gods rule over Egypt.
Urban civilization begins in Sumer as the Anunnaki reestablish there the Olden Cities, beginning with Eridu and Nippur.
Anu comes to Earth for a pageantful visit. A new city, Uruk (Erech), is built in his honor; he makes its temple the abode of his beloved granddaughter Inanna/lshtar.
KINGSHIP ON EARTH
Mankind granted kingship. Kish is first capital under the aegis of Ninurta. The calendar begun at Nippur. Civilization blossoms out in Sumer (the First Region).
Primacy in Sumer transferred to Nannar/Sin. Marduk proclaims Babylon “Gateway of the Gods.” The “Tower of Babel” incident. The Anunnaki confuse Mankind’s languages.
His coup frustrated, Marduk/Ra returns to Egypt, deposes Thoth, seizes his younger brother Dumuzi who had betrothed Inanna.
Dumuzi accidentally killed; Marduk imprisoned in the Great Pyramid. Freed through an emergency shaft, he goes into exile.
3,100 – 3,350 B.C.
The years of chaos end with the installation of first Egyptian Pharaoh in Memphis. Civilization comes to the Second Region.
Kingship in Sumer transferred to Erech. Inanna given dominion over the Third Region; the Indus Valley Civilization begins.
Sumer’s royal capital shifts about. Kingship deteriorates. Enlil loses patience with the unruly human multitudes.
Inanna falls in love with Sharru-Kin (Sargon). He establishes new capital city Agade (Akkad). Akkadian empire launched.
Aiming to rule the four regions, Sargon removes sacred soil from Babylon. The Marduk-Inanna conflict flares up again.
It ends when Nergal, Marduk’s brother, journeys from south Africa to Babylon and persuades Marduk to leave Mesopotamia.
Naram-Sin ascends the throne of Akkad. Directed by the warlike Inanna, he penetrates the Sinai peninsula, invades Egypt.
Inanna usurps the power in Mesopotamia; Naram-Sin defies Nippur. The Great Anunnaki obliterate Agade. Inanna escapes. Sumer and Akkad occupied by foreign troops loyal to Enlil and Ninurta.
Sumerian civilization rises to new heights under enlightened rulers of Lagash. Thoth helps its king Gudea build a ziggurat-temple for Ninurta.
Terah, Abraham’s father, born in Nippur into a priestly-royal family.
Egypt divided; followers of Ra/Marduk retain the south; Pharaohs opposed to him gain the throne of lower Egypt.
As Enlil and Ninurta are increasingly away, central authority also deteriorates in Mesopotamia. Inanna’s attempts to regain the kingship for Erech does not last.
THE FATEFUL CENTURY
Abraham born in Nippur.
Enlil entrusts the Lands of Shem to Nannar; Ur declared capital of new empire.
Ur- Nammmu ascends throne, is named Protector of Nippur. A Nippurian priest — Terah, Abraham’s father — comes to Ur to liaison with its royal court.
Ur-Nammu dies in battle. The people consider his untimely death a betrayal by Anu and Enlil. Terah departs with his family for Harran.
Shulgi ascends the throne of Ur, strengthens imperial ties. As empire thrives, Shulgi falls under charms of Inanna, becomes her lover. Grants Larsa to Elamites in exchange for serving as his Foreign Legion.
Theban princes loyal to Ra/Marduk press northward under Mentuhotep I. Nabu, Marduk’s son, gains adherents for his father in Western Asia.
On Nannar’s orders, Shulgi sends Elamite troops to suppress unrest in Canaanite cities. Elamites reach the gateway to the Sinai peninsula and its Spaceport.
Shulgi dies. Marduk moves to the Land of the Hittites. Abraham ordered to southern Canaan with an elite corps of cavalrymen.
Amar-Sin (the biblical Amraphel) becomes king of Ur. Abraham goes to Egypt, stays five years, then returns with more troops.
Guided by Inanna, Amar-Sin forms a coalition of Kings of the East, launches military expedition to Canaan and the Sinai. Its leader is the Elamite Khedor-la’omer. Abraham blocks the advance at the gateway to the Spaceport.
Shu-Sin replaces Amar-Sin on throne of Ur as the empire disintegrates.
Ibbi-Sin replaces Shu-Sin. The western provinces increasingly to Marduk.
Leading his followers, Marduk marches on Sumer, enthrones himself in Babylon. Fighting spreads to central Mesopotamia.
Nippur’s Holy of Holies is defiled. Enlil demands punishment for Marduk and Nabu; Enki opposes, but his son Nergal sides with Enlil.
As Nabu marshals his Canaanite followers to capture the Spaceport, the Great Anunnaki approve of the use of nuclear weapons. Nergal and Ninurta destroy the Spaceport and the errant Canaanite cities.
The winds carry the radioactive cloud to Sumer. People die a terrible death, animals perish, the water is poisoned, the soil becomes barren.
Sumer and its great civilization lie prostrate. Its legacy passes to Abraham’s seed as he begets — at age 100 — a legitimate heir: Isaac.*
