    The Anunnaki: The Aztec connection, part I

    “The Storming of the Teocalli by Cortes and his Troops”, Emmanuel Leutze.

    When the Spaniards arrived to America they were amazed, not only by the number of inhabitants in the “New World” (then, Central America), but also by the high scientific and technological development of certain autochthonous cultures.

    Imagine how the Europeans took the news of the discovery of a city like Tenochtitlan, located on the other side of the world and only comparable to the Venice of the rich renaissance dukes; or the surprise of the first conquerors when contemplating the mind-blowing Mayan pyramids or, years later, the Coricancha temple in Cusco.

    The problem this posed to the most important institution of that time –the Catholic Church– was that, according to their vision of the world, these natives should have not been there. The Bible didn’t say anything about it and the clergy didn’t know where these natives came from, let alone if they were sons of God.

    An intense controversy arose.

    If the natives ever received God’s Word and didn’t accept it, then they were heretics and deserved to be punished. If, on the contrary, they never received it, they had to be indoctrinated in the Faith. This last stand, defended by Bartolome de las Casas (1484-1566), was the predominant one, although in practice it was ignored by the Spanish conquerors, who ended up enslaving the natives.

    The Church had to come up with a series of stories to explain the presence of the American natives. One of them was considering that a descendant from Noah travelled across the world and populated this land, which was identified as the biblical “Ophir” (according to the chronicles by Gregorio Garcia, Cabello de Balboa, and Fernando de Montesinos). But the most popular of all was that which turned the American natives into descendants of one of the lost tribes of Israel, who came to this land escaping from the Assyrian conquest around year 722 bC.

    The story invented by the Catholic Church had a certain bit of truth because the Aztec creation myths, gathered in Nahuatl, are quite similar to some Biblical creation myths.

    According to the Aztec myths, God first created the Heaven and the Earth; out of clay he made a man and a woman, like the Bible Genesis, but they didn’t last. After many tries, God took metal ashes and created a pair of humans. From them, he populated the Earth, as happened with Adam. Then again, almost all these living beings were destroyed by a deluge, like that of the Bible. A priest, who could have been Noah, survived along with some animals and seeds by floating on a hollow log.

    This brief comparison apparently confirms the theories of the Catholic Church about the origin of the American natives. However, there is a detail the Church didn’t know or was not willing to consider.

    Nowadays, any serious historian knows that many of the stories related in the Bible Genesis were inspired by the Sumerian creation myths, written at least 3000 years before the Old Testament.

    The signs are evident. The Sumerian paradise is similar to the biblical Eden, with rivers and fruit trees; the first man was created out of clay, as in the Bible; there is a Sumerian Eve called “the lady of the rib”, a knowledge tree, a snake, as in the Genesis, and a Noah who survived a deluge and whom the Sumerians called Ziusudra. There are some notable similarities which we’ll talk about in detail in a future article.

    We can see that the Aztec creation myths were not inspired by the Bible Genesis but by the Sumerian creation myths, which are much older.

    But, what other clues point towards this direction or support this hypothesis?

    The natives had their own versions on their origin.

    “The Tower of Babel”, Pieter Bruegel the Elder.

    “The Tower of Babel”, Pieter Bruegel the Elder.

    In his work “The History of the Indies of New Spain”, chronicler Diego Duran (1537-1588) mentions an oral tradition related to him by the natives.

    “…so they appeared, giant men deformed in height, and possessed this land… not being able to get back to the Sun, in love with its light and beauty, they decided to build a tower so high that it reached the sky… and having built it as tall as they could, it was said it could touch the sky, the Lord in the Highest told to the heaven dwellers: ‘Have you noticed how people on Earth have built a high and superb tower to climb over here, in love with the light and beauty of the Sun? Come, let’s confound them because it is not fair that the people from Earth, living in flesh, mix with us’. Then, at that point, the heaven dwellers departed from the four parts of the world, like lighting bolts, and destroyed the tower they had built”.

    This story appears to have been drawn out directly from the Sumerian narration called “Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta”, in which Enmerkar builds a gigantic tower to ask his gods to unite all the regions under a single language.

    “…Let the people of Aratta bring down for me the mountain stones from their mountain, build the great shrine for me, erect the great abode for me, make the great abode, the abode of the gods, famous for me…the whole universe, the well-guarded people, may they all address Enlil together in a single language!”

    For Zecharia Sitchin, the Sumerian clay tablets narrate the arrival of an alien race called the Anunnaki. This alien race came from planet Nibiru and arrived into the Earth hundreds of thousands of years ago looking for gold. According to Sitchin, these beings planted the seed of life in our planet and then modified the DNA of apes to create men as we know them now. Their deeds passed on generation by generation through oral tradition and that’s why they are remembered as gods in the Sumerian traditions. But they didn’t confine themselves to the Middle East and, at some point, they moved to America…

    Was Quetzalcoatl, the one who taught the Aztecs how to measure time, was him one of those Anunnaki aliens?

    To be continued…
