Ancient Alien theory suggests: it wasn’t Hebrew slaves who built the Pyramids, it was acoustic levitation using heavy bass riddims

Greetings,

My favorite television show is Ancient Aliens. Friday Nights on H2. I am fascinated with the concept of how what we know as Mesopotamian mythology predated the Bible and was really the story of Ancient Aliens. Not Skygods. Nor Greek Gods. It was the Anunnaki

The Anunnaki – ZZ Top got nothing on these guys

A dude named Zecharia Sitchin translated thousands of Sumerian cuneiform tables and discovered a hidden history of Ancient Aliens who came from the Twelfth Planet. A place called Nibiru.

cvr9780939680887_9780939680887_hr

The Anunnaki – those who came from the Sky – were space miners who needed gold for their atmosphere on Nibiru.

With an elliptical orbit, there are times when Nibiru approaches Earth which has massive gold holdings. The Anunnaki land space ships in places like Sinai, Sumer (modern day, southern Iraq), the Indus Valley and of course, Egypt. Then they went to the major gold fields in Southern and Western Africa.

Nibiru intersects with Earth: 2900 AD

<The 12th Planet: Nibiru – home world of the Anunnaki; 18 sec.>

From Book IV of Sitchin’s Earth Chronicles: The Lost Realms. About the “Bearded Ones”: The Anunnaki who also visited the New World where the Mayan and Incan civilizations had so much gold, it was worthless as currency.

The Anunnaki had come to Earth 432,000 years before the Deluge – a period equivalent to 120 orbits of Nibiru. Though to the Anunnaki one orbit equalled a single year which was equivalent to 3600 Earth Years. They came and went between Nibiru and Earth each time their planet came closer to the Sun (and Earth) as it passed between Jupiter and Mars. 

nibiru-planet-x
Nibiru suffered climate change and the Anunnaki needed Earth’s gold to turn into gold mist to make their air breathable

But these Anunnaki were lazy. So they created mankind to mine the gold to take back to Nibiru. Superior Anunnaki DNA spliced with Homo Erectus DNA. And what happened was these Anunnaki liked human women and there was plenty of bedjamming between the two groups.

Sex-in-Sumer
“Come back to my ziggurat, baby. We’ll listen to Smile Jamaica, burn a little bush and rub a dub!”

Finally, the main Sumerian God Anu was fed up with humans. He commanded that the Anunnaki wipe them out with a massive flood.

One of the gods, Enki, took pity on mankind and decided to warn them about the Deluge meant to wipe out the annoying humans.

Was it Noah and his Ark? Pshaw. It was a Sumerian named Ziusudra in a submarine.

What makes more sensi to survive a massive flood? A wooden ark or a submarine? Of course, the latter

Do I believe any of this? Sure why not. Here are the 12 planets that the Sumerians wrote about around 2700 BC. Planet, in this case, celestial body

Do not scoff!
  1. The Sun
  2. Mercury
  3. Venus
  4. Earth
  5. Luna (Earth’s moon)
  6. Mars
  7. Jupiter
  8. Saturn
  9. Uranus (discovery 1781 AD)
  10. Neptune (discovery 1846 AD)
  11. Pluto (discovered 1930 AD)
  12. Nibiru (The 12th Planet)

The Sumerians knew about these outer planets 4500 years before local astronmers knew about them. Makes sensi to me!

Smile Jamaica Playlist Jah-gust 29, 2015 (Stream + Tracklist): Sturgeon Moon Stylee!

Greetings,

As an avid skywatcher looking for UFOs, last Saturday was a special treat. The Supermoon (aka the Sturgeon Moon). Hot end of Summer Saturday. Watched a little baseball, waited for the sun to go down and around Midnight I sat on my front steps with a little bourbon (and some spinach salad) and scanned the skies while Thievery Corporation* boomed in my living room. I look for Aliens but alas have never seen one of their crafts.

*Mutant Dub your UFO skywatching soundtrack

One summer on my way home to Montana one of the Supermoons was so bright, I shut off my headlights and drove a mile down I 15 illuminated only by Moonlight.

One day before it’s my time, I will see a UFO. Because they are out there! Do not scoff!

bless, robt
