The Use of Nukes
The Sumerian Account
THE IMMENSELY COSTLY and permanent wars between the gods, such as the two Pyramid Wars recorded in the tablets, found their culmination in the second half of the twenty-first century BCE. The nastiest such war brought about the whole destruction of Sumer and Palestine, and it was recorded in Sumerian tablets, mainly as an immense number of “Laments” from any city in Sumer who had been destroyed. In the Book as well, it was recorded as the War of the Kings, in which Abraham took an active part, followed up in 2024 BCE, by what is called “the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.”
Let’s see the prologue to this war.
We learn that Terah, the father of Abraham, was a High Priest of Enlil in Nippur, the most sacred city and first capital of Sumer, created by and dedicated to Enlil. Indeed, Abraham’s first Sumerian name, Abram, meant “dweller of Nibru.Ki” (Nippur, in Sumerian).
Then Terah went to live in Ur, the new capital, the city of Nannar, heir of Enlil, when this god was given the spiritual and administrative tutorship of the two cities, corresponding with the crowning of King Ur-Nammu. In 2096 BCE, King Ur-Nammu, battling in the East on a mission for the gods, died by accident, he who had been the protégé of several gods, especially Enlil and his firstborn Nannar. The population felt that the great gods had left their protégé to die, they had abandoned him--they who were almighty didn’t care to interfere and save their chosen King, one who was only doing their will. An immense deception and questioning emerged in the minds of Sumerians, about the very Chief of the gods, Enlil, clearly expressed in the tablets.
This very year, Terah moved with his family--notably the young couple Abram (Abraham), 27 years old, and his wife and half-sister Sarai (Sarah)--to Harran, a town on the Euphrates River, in Hittites Land, northwest of Sumer . . . as if in preparation for the dire catastrophe that was to erase Sumer. When Abraham was 75, he was instructed by the Deity to leave Harran and go south, and he left with his wife and his nephew Lot, whose father had died. It is at this occasion that we can surmise that Abraham--raised to be the next High Priest of Enlil--being childless, chose Lot to be his adopted son, through whom the priestly line would pass. The move happened 24 years before the use of nukes that destroyed five towns in the Sinai plain and then the whole of Sumer through the ensuing radioactive cloud--but Abraham’s line of High Priests of Enlil was spared.
It was an Assembly of the Gods that approved the use of nukes to destroy Marduk and his son Nabu. The most violent support and incentive for the use of nukes came from Nergal backed by Enlil. It is noteworthy that, as Mesopotamia (Sumer and Akkad) was destroyed in near totality, all the Anunnaki who had their cities and abodes there (mainly the Enlil’s clan) lost their populations, properties, cattle, and crops. The land was thoroughly scorched by the contaminated wind. The only exception, the only city that escaped destruction, was the abode of Marduk, Babylon.
So, how do these gods react to their abodes and civilization being destroyed by a seemingly ill-fated wind blowing northeastward, and thus bringing back unto their own lands the lethal nuclear energy they had unleashed elsewhere? How do they react to the loss of everything--their civilization and followers--while the very city of their arch-enemy--Babylon--was the only one to be spared? They now interpret by mutual consent that the (mysterious) “Creator-of-All” has singled out Marduk as his protégé and that, in accordance, they have not only to leave him alone but also grant him (at last) the right to possess a land of his own and to be worshipped in a temple. They also grant him the “Enlilship,” the status of the Chief of the Gods on Earth. And thus began the era of Marduk and the end of Enlil’s sovereignty.
Mesopotamia, Lebanon, and the Sinai regions were irradiated and unfit for life for a very long time to come. The consequence (that to my knowledge is not stated in the tablets we have unearthed) is that first Enlil, and then all the gods of Enlil’s clan, had to find a new land as well as new earthling people as their followers, priests, and servants. And it couldn’t be in Egypt nor in Africa at large--the domain of Enki’s clan since olden times.
During his long exile, Marduk and his son had traveled to various countries and he had already presented himself (as had been his longstanding aim) as “the” foremost god, and by the time of the use of nukes, he had gathered followers and temples everywhere. We can infer that these regions were the ones where we find him venerated as the prominent deity under various names--such as the region that was going to become Persia with Cyrus, and where he is called Ahura-Mazda (or Ormuzd), and of course the domain of his father, Egypt, where he reigned as Ra after the 9,000 years of his father Ptah/Enki’s reign, thus starting the second reign of the 1st dynasty of gods in Egypt (as stated by Manetho in his Kings’ List).
In The Lost Book of Enki, Zecharia Sitchin describes that Enlil was warned by a dream of a catastrophe to befall Sumer, and that this is how he ordered Terah to take his family out of Nippur, and then Ur, to settle in Harran; and why, still later, he commanded Abraham to move southward to Canaan and the Negev desert--where the latter took an active and heroic part in the “War of the Kings” that led to the fateful use of the nukes--the last act.
