Sitchen Lied – No Nibiru or Annunaki in Sumerian Texts

Most new age adherents to the belief that the Annunaki came to this world thousands of years ago from the planet Nibiru is based on the works of Zacharia Sitchen.  The problem for most people is they cannot read the Sumerian texts and when a man is presented as an expert, then most people do not question his information.  The problem is that when Sitchen came out with his explanations about the Annunaki and Nibiru no one challenged him and thus his story was presented as a hidden mystery and accepted.

Now, many can read the Sumerian texts / tablets and they (accepted experts in ancient languages) say there is nothing in the Sumerian texts referring to Nibiru or the Annunaki.  When pressed to present his facts showing these references in the Sumerian tablets, Mr. Sitchen refused to do so.  He would say, “It’s in my books” and that was the end of it.  The problem is that many have based their beliefs on this writings and to face the truth that his books are not facts, but creative writing means they have to admit their belief is not based in any facts.  This video below is very interesting in that Jonathan Gray speaks with Coast to Coast about ancient technology.  He talks about the Sumerians and what he believes actually happened.  It’s a great recording:

One must ask then about the “experts” in the alternative information area like David Icke who push these teachings of Sitchen.


Thanks to a response by Charles Lincoln, I did a quick bing search on Annunaki in the Epic of Gilgamesh.  I found this site which is interesting in that it shows a possibly link to the Annunaki and the “sons of God” which would tie into my understanding thus far about the Watchers who refused to be born of woman, and mixed with women instead.  So, here was that bit of information I dug up quickly:

Are the Anunnaki in the Epic of Gilgamesh the Nephilim mentioned in the Bible?

Question: “Are the Anunnaki in the Epic of Gilgamesh the Nephilim mentioned in the Bible?”

Answer: Ancient Sumer-Babylon, like many cultures of antiquity, produced mythologies to explain the world around them. The Epic of Gilgamesh is one such mythology. Several versions of the epic poem exist, but the 12-tablet Akkadian version is the best known. The story centers on the friendship between the principal character, Gilgamesh, and Enkidu. Gilgamesh, the king of Uruk, is two-thirds god and one-third man. He has oppressed the people of Uruk, so the gods create Enkidu to distract Gilgamesh. Their unlikely friendship results in a journey of fantastical adventures resulting in the death of Enkidu.

An important feature of this epic is a “flood” story in which a character named Utnapishim and his wife survive a great flood and obtain immortality. The existence of this flood story, with its many similarities to the Genesis account, indicates a common source. Rather than the Genesis flood account being copied from the Epic of Gilgamesh, both accounts are entirely separate records of something that actually occurred, namely, a global flood.

The gods who appear in the Epic of Gilgamesh are the Anunnaki, a name which probably means “those of royal blood” or “princely offspring” in the ancient Sumerian language. In contrast to this pagan mythology is the biblical account of the Nephilim. Who were the Nephilim? Biblically speaking, the Nephilim were the descendants of the sons of God and daughters of men (Genesis 6:1-4). While there are differing interpretations of this passage, believes it involves the fallen angels (sons of God) taking on human form and mating with the daughters of men (human females), thereby producing a race of angelic-human half-breeds.

Is there a connection between the Anunnaki and the Nephilim? Perhaps. It is definitely interesting to note that both the biblical flood account and the Epic of Gilgamesh mention supernatural, god-like beings interacting with humanity in connection with a global flood. So, it is possible that the myths regarding the Anunnaki originate in the reality that was the Nephilim.

    1. I am no fan of Zecheria Sitchen nor do I really believe that extraterrestrial life forms play a role in shaping human history, ancient or modern. But with those reservations and really no others I am a great fan of your website and blog here, a great supporter of your quest for the truth about the New World Order and how it effects our government. However, I do hold a Ph.D. in Archaeology (Department of Anthropology, though I studied at MCZ, the Semitic Museum [NELC] and studied Akkaddian at the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago). So I feel compelled to tell you that the name of the “Annunaki” most certainly does appear in the story of Gilgamesh. The great King who built the walls of Uruk went to the edge of the earth after his friend wild man friend Enkidu died. Gilgamesh went to the edge of the earth to meet with the Sumerian Noah, Utnapishtim, and there he learned the ancient history of earth before the flood and that the meaning of life is death (ok, major downer there, I guess). But Utnapishtim not only mentioned but described the Annunaki and their name exists in other less famous texts as well. So whatever Sitchen’s faults, lying about the existence of the Annunaki in Sumerian and Akkadian texts is not one of them. Are all of man’s gods Extraterrestrial? Well, yes. Almost by definition. Were they conceived of in the same way as we see or think of extraterrestrials? Probably not. are science fiction and mythology all part of the same narrative describing and interpreting the human condition? Yes. Is “The Epic of Gilgamesh” worth reading? Yes, all twelve tablets. Does it have major parallels to the Hebrew Bible? Yes. Are there other parallels in Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonian literature? Yes, tons of them, one of my personal favorites being Ludlul Bel Nemeki (I praise The Lord of Wisdom) which is a direct parallel to the Book of Job, the righteous sufferer.

    3. Hi I watched your video about Mr. Stitchen and the Annunaki, I think that it’s all very interesting stuff. Also, Mr. Lincoln posted some very interesting points as well. It really got me to thinking. ANOCHI the Hebrew of the Tanahk means, ” Me-myself-Me alone”, seems to me to be suggesting that maybe it is possible that this ANNUNAKi , is a mispronounciation of ANOCHI like so many other Hebrew words found in the Bible which are Constantly mispronounced and misinterpreted on a daily basis. Words such as all “J” words in the Bible, “Jehovah, Jesus, Jerusalem, Messiah, Emphatha, and Moses, Isaac Jacob”, and many many more. I have also noticed that the one Hebrew word for “Sight” is pronounced “RAAH” , just like the Rah in the Egyptian heiroglyphics. I have notice alot of ancient symbols that all seem to be pointing to the Hebrew Alef, which is 2 yohds with 1 slanted line. And appears to represent the Sun above, the Tilted horizon of the Earth with the moon underneath. Number 13 in Kabalah represents a unity. The angled line of ALEF is approximately 23.5 to 30 degrees angle. Look East around 10:30pm to 12:00am Gemini and Jupiter is shining bright. Orion is it’s cosine . I think the ancient Sumerians were the Ancient Hebrews, after all Abraham came from Mesopatamia, and the Torah and the Bible Speaks of him being in Ur and also speaks of the Chaldeans. Although the names in the Bible has been mistranslated from the original Torah. None of this is probably of any surprise to you, but, I think that alot of western archeologist sometimes forget that Eastern cultures are a 360 degrees opposite to the Western way of conveying ideas.
