Shuruppak, South Central Iraq. 1931. While digging at this ancient Sumerian city, archaeologists find what they believe to be sedimentary evidence of flooding from approximately 2900 BC. According to accounts in the Sumerian King List, King Ziusudra was the last Sumerian ruler before a Great Flood on Earth.

“Excavations of the great city of Shuruppak began in 1931. And it was from these excavations that they began putting together the story of King Ziusudra. At the city of Shuruppak we find sediment deposits that appear to show a flood that occurred in around 2900 BC. This is one link that shows that the biblical flood may in fact be genuine and a way in which we can ultimately prove that to be true.”

“Many ancient cultures have a story of a flood, which is intriguing. The fact that the Mesopotamians had a story of a flood is not surprising because Mesopotamian history is fraught with stories of trying to contain the Tigris and Euphrates and make them usable for agriculture. Until they built the canal system there were regular floods that wiped out cities.”

– Fr. William J. Fulco, Ph.D.
(Archaeologist, Loyola Marymount Univ.)

“It appears that the story of Noah’s Ark may not be an original Hebrew story. In the Sumerian texts we find a much older story of Ziusudra who also survived the flood, who constructed an ark and was able to save part of his family as well. Is this merely coincidence or does it suggest that, in fact, the biblical tale is based upon the Sumerian original?”

“The similarities have caused many to suggest that perhaps the biblical account is drawn in some sense from a Mesopotamian account. My feeling is that most certainly the biblical writers adapted it for their own theological reasons. In the biblical account, the rationale for the flood is human sinfulness. And so, what the biblical writer has done is used the flood account in order to provide a theological rationale for why the flood took place.”

Robert Mullins, Ph.D. (Archaeologist)

According to ancient Sumerian legend, the Great Flood was not a natural event, but was directed by the god Enlil, who had grown tired of the noise of humans.

“The Anunnaki who came to Earth, essentially had two leaders: Enlil, who was the legal, legitimate son of Anu, the king on the planet Nibiru, and his half-brother Enki, who was actually the firstborn. They were in charge of the Earth contingent. Procreation was out of control, and Enlil gets enraged. He decides he’s going to eliminate all the humans, and created what we know as Noah’s flood.”

– M.J. Evans, Ph.D. (Landscape Geographer),
(Author, The Legacy of Zecharia Sitchin)

“Enlil thought that humans should be erased. They were too troublesome. And Enki, like Prometheus in the Greeks, took the side of the humans and said, no, they should be preserved.”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

According to legend, Enki warned King Ziusudra to build a boat so that he might be saved from the Great Flood, just as Noah was directed to build an ark in the stories of the Hebrew Bible. Could both stories have their origins in historical fact?

“At Ur and other cities we have evidence of floods, major floods. People have associated this with the story of Noah’s flood, and there are flood stories in other cultures. So, I think we have a trend here, where over and over, people have doubted the myths, have doubted the legends, but, in fact, with more research, we find that they have a genuine basis.”

Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.
(Geologist / Author, Forgotten Civilization)

Could the similarities of these two tales be attributed to mere coincidence? Or might the story of Noah be directly based on the story of a displeased Anunnaki god? A god who was bent on destroying the hybrid creatures that inhabited the earth?

“Enki, the Anunnaki god, told the Sumerian King Ziusudra that there was going to be this flood, the same flood of the Bible, and that he needed to build a craft we would say today a boat to escape it. However, it’s quite possible that the craft that he made to escape this flood was actually a spaceship, and that he went into space in order to escape the flood and into orbit around our planet.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“If there’s one thing that unites ancient cultures all across the world, is that pretty much each and every one of them have flood mythologies attached to them. Deluges, Great Floods, you know, just swamping and covering the entire planet, wiping out whole races of people. In most cultures, this is put down to the work of the gods or a god displeased with the human race. Now, of course today, you know, many people place that in a UFO context. Other people place it in a religious context. But many researchers sort of view biblical accounts and stories as having a basis in fact but of extraterrestrial origins.”

“Both the Bible and, specifically, the ancient Sumerian accounts make it clear that the flood was something which the gods created. The gods made this flood happen. And so what we’re seeing in the ancient accounts is basically an interaction between the Anunnaki on the one hand and our ancestors on the other hand. The Anunnaki basically make sure that we, as a species, will survive, because sections of the Anunnaki were intent on destroying everything on this planet.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Is it possible that the Anunnaki were responsible for causing what has been called “the Great Flood”? And did the flood destroy virtually all evidence of the Anunnaki’s time on Earth?  Perhaps the answer can be found not here on Earth but on another planet more than 34 million miles away.
