Q:Where do all the legends of the Annunaki gods fit
into the Urantia story, gods such as Enki, Enlil, Anu etc.?
A: This is an interesting question, and one that
has been studied by at
least one devoted Urantia Book reader/student: Robert Sarmast. He wrote
a piece about it, which you can find HERE. It is about two-thirds of the way down
the page, but here are some passages from it that speak to your
"After years of research, Adam and Eve have been
conclusively identified in the Sumerian texts. Known as father Enki and
"Mother Goddess" Ninhursag, these celestial beings made a tremendous
impact on the history of our planet, Urantia, and their legend was
perpetuated for thousands of years.
"Only in this century have the majority of these epic tales been
unearthed and translated, and the stories they tell and images they
depict have the potential to turn the academic world on its head. The
entire Mesopotamian region is filled with legends of "gods" who
descended to Earth and gave mankind the gift of civilization. From
agriculture to astronomy to religion, these "Anunnaki" ("those who from
heaven to Earth came") races were accredited with practically every
advancement in human culture and metaphysical, spiritual understanding.
And these "myths" were powerful enough to perpetuate themselves not
only throughout recorded history, but are alive and well in the minds
and religions of present day races.
"Our journey begins with an introduction to the hopeless quest of
the secular world in their attempt to understand or properly translate
the vast spiritual richness of these texts, found on clay tablets
buried for thousands of years. A brief overview of some key words in
the Sumerian tongue reveals a highly advanced understanding of
metaphysics, and a remarkable similarity to the cosmology revealed in
the Urantia Papers.
"Enki is known as the "water god," a god of fertility and
creation. One of the key leads to the discovery of Adam's identity in
Sumeria's confused mythological system was the fact that the word "ab"
has a double meaning -- it means both water and semen. Therefore the
traditional title of Enki as the water god is an assumption, since his
title could also mean the "semen god," or what we would today call the
genetic god. Adam was the genetic uplifter of all humanity.
"One of the longest, best known, and well preserved epics found in
the region is called "Enki And The World Order," and this Sumerian
masterpiece is thoroughly covered in this presentation. The story of
Enki and Ninhursag, as told thru this epic is nearly identical to the
one given humanity through the Urantia revelation, and over thirty-five
direct matches are provided as proof."
The article speaks of a video that was recorded about this topic,
but I have not been able to find it yet. Maybe you'll have better luck.
But as you can see at the link I gave you, there are several pieces
that Robert has written on various topics of these ancient people and
places as regards The Urantia Book. Here's another piece by Robert that
you'll find on our site: Journey to Urmia Island.
Robert has also spent considerable time exploring the story of
Atlantis and its connections to the first Garden. You can see that
piece on our site HERE
Since writing this reply, I have become aware of another excellent site which delves
into these legends and their connection with The Urantia Book. Please visit: First Legend for much more information.
