It is believed by many that approximately 445,000 years ago, ancient astronauts from another planet in the cosmos landed on Earth looking for gold.
The Ancient Sumerians assert that they extracted their knowledge of the distant past from the teachings and writings of the Anunnaki.
But why did the Anunnaki leave earth?
Enduring mystery about why the Anunnaki leave Earth
What was the reason for their departure from Earth?
What happened after the fall of Babylon?
According to research, this mass destruction was due to a civil war (maybe, a nuclear war) between the clans of Enki and Enlil (for political ambitions).
Ishtar and Marduk started the conflict.
Marduk retook Babylon through Cyrus the Great of Persia in 539 BC.
However, then all the Anunnaki left the Earth.
Did Marduk stay here?
Answers to these questions are found in the book The End of Times by Zecharia Sitchin.
According to this book, everything begins when the Second Pyramid War took place, between the two different clans.
The Anunnaki civil war: Clans of Enki vs. Clans of Enlil
It was the civil war caused by Inanna / Ishtar, who wanted to control Africa and Egypt which led the Anunnaki to leave Earth.
Inanna also wanted to further develop her governorate in India, so she had stolen ME templates with engineering skills.
Marduk was disadvantaged and decided to build the city of Babylon and the Tower of Babel in order to reach the Heavens (a spaceport to launch spaceships towards Nibiru, the Anunnaki planet)
However, Enlil caused the confusion of language among the builders.
That’s when the Second Pyramid War broke out, with nuclear weapons destroying Sumer and the Sinai Peninsula spaceport (which Marduk wanted to control).
The city of Babylon escaped being attacked by the bombs and was able to develop under the dominance of one.
With that dominion, all the kings of Babylon were obliged to worship Marduk.
The Enuma Elish was directed to enhance it.
Enlil’s clan withdrew in defeat, abandoning certain important temples.
Later, the cult of Marduk was displaced by that of the God Sin, due to the machinations of the High Priestess of Sin, who brought her son Nabonidus to the throne of Babylon (in 556 BC).
Taking Babylon back in honor of Marduk
Despite this, Marduk made a pact with Cyrus, the Great of Persia, to conquer Babylon in honor of the God.
This conquest occurred on October 12, 539 BC.
The conquest appears in the Cyrus Cylinder and it was the fall of Babylon.
According to Zecharia Sitchin, the Anunnaki left Earth in two separate groups.
Enlil’s clan came out first, following Marduk’s defeat in the Second Pyramid War.
The second exodus was more complete, as clans of both Enki and Enlil left after the taking of Babylon.
The End of Times stipulates that all the Gods left in ships from spaceports in America (such as Nazca and Teotihuacán).
According to the official story, that Sitchin narrative is not true, neither Nazca nor Teotihuacán were spaceports for ancient aliens.
Still, archaeologists have discovered very little about the fate of the Sumerian gods after Babylon and Assyria.
A piece of crucial related information is in writings of the Hurrian and Hittite civilizations (back in Turkey).
They said that the Anunnaki were banished to the Underworld by the New Gods, such as Tarhun, Arinnitti, and A’as (Enki himself).
So this alternate history of Sitchin is controversial, however, the researcher provides many logical connections of important points between historical sites, historical events (such as the conquest of Babylon), and mythology.
