uildings housing a temple and an observatory for priests, who, as mentioned, also were keen astronomers. The Ziggurats' top floor was usually the “Gods' Dwelling” which was located on the top to allow easy access to the ANUNNAKI. Religiosity Sumerian religion - if we can really define it as such - was certainly polytheist: indeed, the ANUNNAKI civilization by partitioning power into various territories. Therefore, gods were necessarily local deities. We have already said ANU, whose appearance dates back to the fourth millennium BC, was the lord of the empire. Compared to the divinities, his was a very evanescent, abstract figure; but he was not a creator (in fact we know ENKI was the creator); ANU was also not the subject of a real and constant cult like the other “gods”. His temple was located in the city of Uruk (Ur or Erek in the Bible?) and it was called EANNA, “House of Heaven”. The power of the “gods” and the kings chosen to represent them when “authority was sent from heaven to earth” came directly from ANU, that is why only rulers could communicate with him and not the subjects. Perhaps this is how the concept of remoteness and inaccessibility of God, accrued in the theological elaborations developed over the following centuries. ANU would dwell in heaven, far away, on NIBIRU, and according to Sumerian tales, he came on earth only once, or maybe twice, to see the work of his children. We have already read about them: ENLIL (the lord of the above, of the air or of the higher spheres) and ENKI (the lord of the Earth, the lower spheres and the water: the creator of man). A very important goddess was INANNA, later known as Ishtar, Astarte, Isis, Aphrodite and Venus depending on the cultures of the Middle East and Mediterranean areas. 6 This goddess loved travelling on her flying machine, and for this reason was 32

epresented with a pilot suit and a helmet! The concept of “space” must be considered as the foundation of everything that has to do with the divine: the Sumerian term for deities is DINGIR, which actually refers to the meaning of “celestial apparition” highlighting its brightness and shine and then recalling the lords' flying machines, which were bright and glittering. Their ideogram symbolized a star and represented a “being from above”. We immediately note that this is exactly the same meaning as the biblical term ELOHÌM, “the lords from above”: term that is usually – but wrongly! – translated using the singular form to keep the concept of God's oneness. Indirect evidence? In this chapter we have summarized those theories that are widely published with the sole purpose of addressing the following reading of certain passages from the Old Testament, whose literal meaning recalls a very concrete, material, vision of God, whose origin is non-terrestrial. To complete this presentation, however, we must mention here a series of statements and information from areas that are not related to alternative or UFO literature. Science and Archaeo-Anthropology Research of molecular biologists and geneticists on mitochondria date back to 300-250 thousand BCE with the appearance of the first female ancestor of all women (the so-called “Mitochondrial Eve”) and all males, whose mitochondria 7 could only be transmitted by female eggs because they are too large to be contained in the spermatozoa. The amount of genetic material, or DNA, that distinguishes us from the two chimpanzee species closest to us Pan paniscus and Pan troglodites is less than 2%.And yet, evolutionists are questioning the extreme rapidity with which 33
