In 1849, British archeologist, Austin Henry Layard discovered 22,000 clay tablets in the Ancient Sumerian city of Nineveh, in an area now known as Iraq. The tablets contain cuneiform script and are one of the earliest known writing systems, created by the Sumerians 6,000 years ago.
In 1976, a man named Zecharia Sitchin published his personal translations of the Sumerian texts in a series of books called “The Earth Chronicles.“ According to Sitchin, the clay tablets describe an alien race known as the Anunnaki, who came to Earth to mine gold. Sitchin claimed extraterrestrial visited earth in the past because their home-planet needed gold to survive.. But that they also tampered with the genetics of humans when they came here.
There are many theories about the Anunnaki that could fill several volumes of books. Question is.. If the ancient Anunnaki really did exist, wouldn’t there be tangible evidence of their legacy on Earth?
Well, in 2005 a man named Johan Heine discovered an ancient city in Africa that could prove to be the missing link to the Anunnaki. Located around 150 km west of the port of Maputo, in South Africa, researchers have found the remains of a vast metropolis that measures, according to initial surveys, a staggering 1,500 square kilometers.
This ancient metropolis is, according to many, part of an even larger complex that encompasses an even greater area of 10,000 square kilometers, but the most fascinating detail about it is its age: It is believed to be between 160,000 and 200,000 years old! Curiously, near these ancient metropolises the presence of ancient gold mines indicates the presence of an advanced civilization that was able to extract gold, in 200,000 BC.
So the big question is, WHO could have been mining all that gold, such a long time ago?
If you look at Sitchin’s work, it may all start to make sense. Based on The Cosmic Code: The Sixth Book of The Earth Chronicles by Zecharia Sitchin, this is the real historical timeline of our planet:
Events Before the Deluge:
450,000 years ago,
On Nibiru, a distant member of our solar system, life faces slow extinction as the planet’s atmosphere erodes. Deposed by Anu, the ruler Alalu escapes in a spaceship and finds refuge on Earth. He discovers that Earth has gold that can be used to protect Nibiru’s atmosphere.
Led by Enki, a son of Anu, the Anunnaki land on Earth, establish Eridu -Earth Station I – for extracting gold from the waters of the Persian Gulf.
Earth’s climate mellows. More Anunnaki arrive on Earth, among them Enki’s half-sister Ninhursag, Chief Medical Officer.
As gold production falters, Anu arrives on Earth with Enlil, the heir apparent. It is decided to obtain the vital gold by mining it in southern Africa. Drawing lots, Enlil wins command of Earth Mission; Enki is relegated to Africa. On departing Earth, Anu is challenged by Alalu’s grandson.
Seven functional settlements in southern Mesopotamia include a Spaceport (Sippar), Mission Control Center (Nippur), a metallurgical center (Shuruppak). The ores arrive by ships from Africa; the refined metal is sent aloft to orbiters manned by Igigi, then transferred to spaceships arriving periodically from Nibiru.
Gaining the support of the Igigi, Alalu’s grandson attempts to seize mastery over Earth. The Enlilites win the War of the Olden Gods.
The Anunnaki toiling in the gold mines mutiny. Enki and Ninhursag create Primitive Workers through genetic manipulation of Ape woman; they take over the manual chores of the Anunnaki. Enlil raids the mines, brings the Primitive Workers to the Edin in Mesopotamia. Given the ability to procreate, Homo Sapiens begins to multiply.
Life on Earth regresses during a new glacial period.
Climate warms again. The Anunnaki (the biblical Nefilim), to Enlil’s growing annoyance, marry the daughters of Man.
The “accursation of Earth” – a new Ice Age-begins. Regressive types of Man roam the Earth. Cro-Magnon man survives.
Enki and Ninhursag elevate humans of Anunnaki parentage to rule in Shuruppak. Enlil enraged. Plots Mankind’s demise.
Realizing that the passage of Nibiru in Earth’s proximity will trigger an immense tidal wave, Enlil makes the Anunnaki swear to keep the impending calamity a secret from Mankind.
According to many people around the globe, the Anunnaki are most definitely the ultimate proof that there are missing links in the origins of the human species.
So, about 2 years ago, I personally traveled to South Africa to see some of these structures for myself. I was ASTOUNDED by the sheer magnitude and the amount of effort that went into building these structures. To be honest, I left with more unanswered questions than I arrived with.
Why insist on using only one type of stone when there are other options?
Why take the stones from so far away?
Why do the stones make strange ringing sounds when you tap on them, almost like they’re made of hollow metal?
Some of the walls were also believed to be over 3 meters high at one stage.
Why build them so large?
Why didn’t they have windows or entrances in so many them?
Why build them in such strange patterns?
Why build so many?
Regardless of who built them when they were built, or why, they were truly astounding feat. Too bad nobody has actually done a proper archaeological dig to see if anything is buried inside or near the structures. We just don’t have the money nor the manpower. But, you can still go visit them! Just try not to knock down the stones by climbing all over the walls. Too many people have done that already.
As an added bonus, here are some exclusive, up close and personal photos of these structures I took while I was there investigating.
