Legends of the Annunaki gods and The Urantia Book

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 question:

"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.
