Enki the Anunnaki god of the Abyss

Ea/Enki the Anunnaki god of the Abyss, was the third of the great Babylonian triad of gods, which consisted of Anu, En-lil, and himself. This documentary looks at the bigger picture concerning the mysterious Anunnaki gods of ancient Mesopotamia. Ea/Enki was a god of the waters, and like Anu is called the ‘ father of the Anunnaki gods.’ As a god of the Abyss he appears to have been also a deity of wisdom and occult power, thus allegorically associated with the idea of depth or profundity. He was the father of Merodach/Marduk, who consulted him on the most important matters connected with his kingship of the gods. Lord Ea/Enki was consulted by individuals of all classes who desired his light to be thrown upon their crafts or businesses. He was the god of artisans in general—blacksmiths, stone-cutters, sailors, and artificers of every kind. He was also the patron of prophets and seers. As the abyss is the place where the seeds of everything were supposed to originate, so he appears to have fostered reproduction of every description. Ea/Enki was supposed to dwell beside Anu, who inhabited the pole of the ecliptic. The site of his chief temple was at Eridu, which at one time stood, before the waters receded, upon the shore of the Persian Gulf. We have seen already that Ea/Enki, under his Greek name of Oannes, was supposed to bring knowledge and culture to the people of Eridu. There are many confusing myths connected with him, and he seems in some measure to enter into the Babylonian myth of the deluge. The chief extract from the fragments of Berossus concerning Oannes states that: “In the first year there made its appearance from a part of the Eruthrean sea, which bordered upon Babylonia, an animal endowed with reason, who was called Oannes.” According to the accounts of Apollodorus the whole body of the animal was like that of a fish and had under a fish’s head another head, and also feet below, similar to those of a man, joined to the fish’s tail. His speech, too, was articulate and human and there was a representation of him to be seen in the time of Berossus. After this there appeared other creatures like Oannes/Enki, of which Berossus promises to give an account when he comes to the history of the kings. He is thus very different from the god En-lil, the ‘ lord of heaven ’ who possesses so many attributes of destruction. Ea/Enki in his benevolent way thwarts the purpose of the riotous god of tempest, which greatly enrages En-lil, the two religious centres of Eridu and Nippur, were the cities of Ea and En-lil respectively. He was also called En-ki, which describes him as ‘ lord of the earth ’ through which his waters zig zagged. the wave-form-serpent-fish god.In such a country as Babylonia earth and water are closely associated, as under that soil water is always to be found at a distance of a few feet: thus the interior of the earth is the domain of Ea.

God the Spirits and the Totem of the Anunnaki

God the Spirit and the Totem of the Anunnaki. An Anunnaki documentary looking into the ancient Spirits that swarmed in ancient Babylonia. The determinative or symbolic written sign for ‘ spirit ’ is the same as that for ‘god.’ Thus the god and the spirit must in Babylonia have had a common descent. The manner in which we can distinguish between a god and a spirit, however, is simple. Lists of the ‘official’ gods are provided in the historical texts, whereas spirits and demons are not included therein. Just as the great gods of the universe were apportioned their several offices, so were the spirits allotted almost exactly similar powers. Thus the Annunaki were perhaps regarded as the spirits of earth and the Igigi as spirits of heaven. as they are designated in an inscription of Rammannirari I. In any case they belong to a very early period in the Babylonian religion. The god Anu, the most ancient of the Babylonian deities, was regarded as the father of both companies, but other gods make use of their services. The Anunnaki do not appear to be well disposed to humanity. The Assyrian kings were to invoke them, when they desired to install a fear of their majesty in the people, and from this it maybe inferred that they were objects of peculiar fear to the lower orders of the population There can be no doubt as to the truly animistic character of early Babylonian religion which is further explored in this Anunnaki documentary. Signs of totemism are not wanting in the Babylonian region as in other religious systems. Many of the Anunnaki gods are pictured as riding upon the backs of certain animals, an almost certain indication that at one time they had themselves possessed the form of the animal they rode upon. Thus the sun-god of Kis had the form of an eagle, and we find that Ishtar took as lovers a horse, an eagle, and a lion — surely gods who were represented in equine, aquiline, and leonine forms. The fish-form of Oannes, the god of wisdom, is certainly a relic of totem-ism. Some of the old ideograph representations of the names of the gods are eloquent of a totemic connection. Thus the name of Ea/Enki, the god of the deep, is expressed by an ideograph which signifies ‘antelope.’ Ea/Enki is spoken of as ‘the antelope of the deep,’ ‘the lusty antelope,’ and so forth. He was also, as a water-god, connected with the serpent, a universal symbol of the flowing stream. Merodach/Marduk may have been a bull-god. In early astronomical literature we find him alluded to as ‘the bull of light.’ The storm-god Zu, as is seen by his myth, retained his birdlike form.
