Anunnaki - Gods of Sumeria Or fallen Angels??
I found it very interesting that the earliest civilisation known to us in the historical records, the Sumerians, have a religion that talks of these Anunnaki coming down from heaven and teaching them all wonders of things.
I found a correlation between fallen angels and the Anunnaki. It's rather coincidental that our faith teaches of a war that ended in one third of the angels falling to earth, whilst in our history we have our first civilisation who are taught by Gods who "came" from the heavens. Perhaps they did not so much come from heaven as they where kicked out.
Now after reading numbers(13: 28) in the scripture I came across the descendants of Anak who where described as giants. The word Anak itself sounded eerily similar to the Anunnaki which I had recently been studying and so it got me thinking.
After further reading I came across Numbers 13:33 (In parenthesis though of course) in which I was informed that the Anakites come from the nephilim! So, if we take this all together we can see that;
We have the war of heaven a long time ago and then we also have beings coming from the sky to be worshipped by the Sumerians as Gods; also a long time ago. We know the Sumerians called these Gods anunnaki. Is it such a stretch to theorise that the fallen angels of our faith are the "so called Gods" coming to the Sumerians? We know God's hate for Babylon and Babylon is really just another form of the Sumerian culture which came after Sumaria in the same location.
Then we read in the Bible of a people descendant from anuk who are giant and strong who come from the nephilim: Numbers 13:32.
Now of course I don't have to mention that the nephilim are also called the sons of God, and the sons of God is another word for angels.
So it is clear that not only in language is their a similarity between the word anak or anakites and the anunnaki. But also in the relationship between the Anakites being descendants of nephelim and the anakites being heavenly beings.
I think it's probably that like in the Bible the anakites are descendent from angels, so to are the anunnaki angels who have fallen from heaven.
Interesting facts. The Anunnaki interestingly has been said to mean princely offspring. The devil is known as the prince of the sky.
