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 Ark-Ives: June 20, 2015 (Stream + Tracklist): Bumbaclaat!

download (6)
Bumbaclaat = p*ssy cloth

Greetings,

In 1972 George Carlin did a famous routine on the Seven Dirty Words you can’t say on television (or radio)

  1. shit
  2. piss
  3. fuck
  4. cunt
  5. cocksucker
  6. motherfucker
  7. tits

In Jamaica you might want to add a #8: bumbaclaat. When Aunt Flo comes a callin’ each month, Rasta women in Jamaica living in the hills don’t go for Kotex or Tampax but have to do what rural and poor women have done for centuries: rags.

In some Rasta societies the stigma of menstruation makes women “unclean” and they are often kept apart from the Rasta men.

The term used for these menstruation rags in Jamaica: bumbaclaat. Bumba slang word for….pussy. Claat/cloth = Bumbaclaat. It can also mean the rag you use to wipe your backside. A nasty epithet forbidden in polite company but a rude retort akin to dropping F-bombs from the stage.

download (8)
Seven Dirty Words

Peter Tosh is most identified with the term. He put a song entitled “Bumbaclaat” on his album Wanted Dread & Alive. HIs American record label was none too happy and excised the song from domestic release. If you have seen the Tosh biography Red X, he talks about how a duppy (Jamaican malevolent spirit) paralyzed Peter one night and his only way to break free was to scream out BUMBACLAAT! to free himself from demonic possession.

That story is one of many I tell on the June 20, 2015 edition of Smile Jamaica. End of June 2015 tallies up 27 years of Reggae Radio for I ‘n’ I on KRCL 90.9FM Salt Lake City, Utah. Give thanx!
