Learn about The Serpent and The Tree of Knowledge:
According to our oldest recorded legends from the ancient Sumerian civilization, human beings are the creation of the gods, who were known to the Sumerians as the Anunnaki, and who they record as having come to Earth from another (currently unrecognized) planet in our solar system for the purpose of mining our gold. As we saw previously, at first these ‘gods’ mined our planet themselves, but soon grew tired of the laborious work, and so it was decided to create a worker-being, mixing their own genetics with that of an earthly creature. After several failed attempts (very possibly resulting in the various chimeric creatures described in ancient mythology and depicted in ancient art, and even perhaps the various co-mingling races of the early hominid species, specifically Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon), they finally created a human prototype that was satisfactory for their needs. The Anunnaki referred to these proto-humans as ‘the black-headed people’, which may have reflected their skin color, but could just as likely have reflected the color of their hair. In either case, this may have been a distinguishing physical characteristic between these proto-humans and their creators. These proto-humans, being sterile hybrids, had no means of procreation, but the gods eventually grew tired of having to continually produce them in the manner that they did, which involved using surrogate mothers from among the females of their own race for artificial insemination, so they decided to give these proto-humans the ability to reproduce on their own. This may have been the point in the biblical texts when Eve was created.
This Sumerian creation legend is very suggestive of the biblical events that occurred in the Garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve ‘ate from the Tree of Knowledge’ and became ‘aware’ and suddenly felt guilty for their ‘nakedness’. This biblical story is meant to signify a major change to the human species, which definitely correlates with the earlier and more detailed Sumerian accounts. This change caused Adam and Eve to have to leave the garden – an enclosed sanctuary for the gods – undoubtedly because the ability of humans to procreate would have eventually overpopulated the sanctuary, and they would have become too many to care for, so they were evicted and forced to fend for themselves on the land.
In the Sumerian texts, we’re told that it was Enki, the god of knowledge, who created the first proto-human as an experiment, and who thus became responsible for them and helped them to become civilized. Enki was also responsible for later changing the genetics of these proto-humans to make them able to self-reproduce. This angered the other gods (the Elohim of the Bible), who thereafter condemned him to permanently overseeing the underground mining operations.
