An Unfortunate Fiction, Dec 14 2003
Though I often disagree with his interpretations, I have long been a stalwart fan of Sitchin, and reference his works often. However, this book, presented as if there were archaeological texts to back it up, is an out an out farce.
Throughout his previous works, Sitchin has always taken the position that the Anunnaki represented the "only" god system ever known on Earth, a concept that is plainly in error from a Christian point of view. I have steadfastly referenced the archeological texts concerning Alalu, Kumarbi/Zu, and Ullikummi and have found that there is absolutely no archeological evidence what so ever to indicate these beings were ever involved in the Anunnaki gold mining operation. There is, however, very sound archeological evidence in the Sumerian king's list, known to scholars as W-B/144, indicating Alalu and his descendents established Earth's first city, Eridu, prior to the Anunnaki rebellion led by Anu. In Christian terms, it is Anu, Enki and Enlil who represent the leaders of the "fallen angels". The evidence also indicates that Alalu had human children on Earth. It was Alalu's descendants, called "lulu's," who were the subject of Enki's rather insidious attempt to genetically manipulate mankind into slavery.
Furthermore, any attempt by Sitchin to connect Alalu's home world with Mars, shows a very clear lack of scholarship on his part. In Sitchin's third book, "The Wars of Gods and Men", (p.92) we find that Enki/Ea offers to take Kumarbi to the planet, "MAR.GID.DA," in order to consult with "Lama", who is the matriarchal ancestor of both Kumarbi and Anu. Anyone with access to a search engine can type in the word, MAR.GID.DA, and learn that it is a direct reference to the Big Dipper, not Mars. In antiquity, the Big Dipper was known as both the "Chariot of Heaven" and the "Plough of Heaven". One might conclude, therefore, that the Old Testament statements that, "They shall beat their swords into ploughshares," suggests that the Big Dipper and Alalu's descendants may ultimately play a very important role in the history of Earth. This conclusion is again backed up in the New Testament with the parable, "No man, having put his hand to the plough and looking back, is worthy of the kingdom of God." Once again, Alalu's probable association with Christianity is clearly referenced in The Book of Revelations, chapter 19, where the word "Allelula", (pronounced A.LA.LU.YA) appears four times.
I dare say, these easily verifiable facts are certainly enough to make anyone question Sitchin's interpretations, and most certainly should give any Christian considerable meat to ponder. The Egyptian myth concerning the beginning, Genesis one, is called "Sep Tepi." (See "Gods of Eden" by Andrew Collins or reference "Edfu Texts" online.) Collins makes a very good case for connecting Kumarbi and Alalu to "the first time", where they fight a tremendous battle with "serpent" deities called Aa and Wa, who undoubtedly were Ea and Ra. Kumarbi and Alalu lose the battle, and paradise sinks beneath the sea, and is called "the Island of the Trampling." The landmass rises again, only now there are new "gods" running the show, one of whom is called "The Lord, mighty-chested, who made slaughter, the Soul who lives on blood." These being then give birth to eight other gods, called "Shebtiu", which are called "the Ogdoad" in the Theban myths. The Ogdoad/Shebtiu then give birth to nine other gods, which correspond to the Egyptian Ennead, and eventually this race of Anunnaki gods, gives rise to the Horace Kings, the "Re-heraky" (Ra hierarchy) associated with the Egyptian sphinx, and the "royal blood" of the lion kings of both the Egyptian and Hebrew races.
It might also be wise of Sitchin fans to realize that his earlier ascertains that the Biblical numeral "666" is a reference to Ba'al, is clearly disputed by a great number very renown archeologists, Sir Wallace Budge being perhaps the most famous among them. (See "Amulets and Talismans", Budge) Throughout antiquity, the superstitious and war-torn people of the Middle East regularly wore amulets and charms to ward off evil spirits or bring them luck. They regularly inscribed their charms with "magic squares", a numerical system that Thoth, the serpent's other son, presumably taught the Levite priesthood. Even the common-folk knew what magic squares were, because they used them in their appeals to various Anunnaki deities. In essence, magic squares are blocks of numbers that produce the same sum whether they are added in horizontal rows, columns or diagonals. There were seven very well known magic squares, each corresponding to the following heavenly bodies, or "gods in our solar system; Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, Mercury, the moon, and the sun. The numerals for the magic square of the sun added up to 666, and it is evident that the number is a reference to Ra/Marduk's "Solar Deity Complex."
In Egypt's oldest Theban creation myths, the Egyptian's credited the "god of the beginning" with the name "Amen", which is verified again by the apostle John, in Revelations 3:14. This deity, though recognized and honored by Thebes's earliest priesthood, was considered an unknown and "hidden" god; a god whose existence went so far back in time, the Theban priests knew very little about him. Up until the Tower of Babylon incident, which more than likely happened in centuries immediately preceding the year 2000 BC, "the Amen" was practically an unknown god in Egypt. The "confusion of tongues" very likely corresponds to the confusion in Egypt's history during this same time frame. John the Divine seems to suggest that Ra/Marduk committed the first known act of "identity theft" by adding the name "Amen" as a prefix to the name "Ra." The Christian records indicate Ra is a liar.
Though Sitchin's scholarship has certainly opened our eyes, the conclusions he presents are very questionable, particularly to anyone who actually makes the effort to reference his work. Let's put it this way... The words, "A.LA.LU.YA A.MEN! LAMB.MA MAR.GID.DA!" would clearly tell a different story than Sitchin does.
