“Our Father Who Art In Heaven” shows up for the first time in 7000 years
In 3800 BC, during the Age of Taurus (4380 to 2220 BC), King Anu touched down on the spaceport apron at Tilmun in the Sinai Peninsula in the imperial “Celestial Chariot”, the first time he had done so in 7000 years.
The mission was at the request of Enlil, Earth’s Chief Executive and the Bible’s central Jehovah. The King of Nibiru, the Solar System’s 10th planet which is seen only once in 3600 years, was accompanied by Antu, his seniormost wife before the Sirian and Orion thrones were merged (Enki’s mother, the Orion Queen, was Anu’s official main spouse but the marriage was a ceremonial one only: there were no sexual relations.). The great King was received by his great grandson Utu-Shamash in his capacity as executive commander of the spaceport and welcomed by Enlil (biological son, whose mother was Antu), Enki (stepson), and Ninmah (biological daughter by a wife junior to Antu).
“They embraced and kissed, they laughed and cried,” relates Enki in his memoirs, The Lost Book of Enki, which was compiled by Zechariah Sitchin. “All five of them with tears were filled; tears of joy with sorrowed tears were mingled.” In the intervening period since Anu last visited, his children had aged woefully courtesy of the much quicker circumsolar revolution of Earth compared to Nibiru.
Whereas Anu and Antu looked very youthful, as though they were nudging forty, their kids came across as though they were nudging 70 or so, with Ninmah worse for wear being a lady. “Though greater in shars were the parents, younger than the children they looked,” Enki makes a point of underscoring this aspect. “The two sons looked old and bearded. Ninhursag (Ninmah), once a beauty, was bent and wrinkled.”
In anticipation of the visit, Ninurta, the overall boss of Sumer, had built a sacred precinct for King Anu on the banks of “a great mountain” in Uruk (Erech in the Bible). Called Unug-Ki, meaning “Delightful Place”, its interior was made of pure gold overlaid with carnelian stones. From the spaceport, Anu was flown straight to the Unug-Ki, where all the Anunnaki who were on Earth, including the Igigi, awaited him. The moment he arrived, the entire gathering broke out in songs, both vocally and instrumentally, as they escorted him into his brand new temple-house. Thereafter, “Anu washed and rested, then he was perfumed and clothed; Antu by female Anunnaki to the House of the Golden Bed was escorted: there she too washed and rested, then she was perfumed and clothed.”
At the evening banquet in the open and spectacularly lit courtyard, Anu and Antu sat on a lavishly decorated dais, with Enlil and Enki to Anu’s right and Ninmah to Antu’s left. Serving the foods and wines were Earthlings, all of whom were stark naked to underline their inferiority in the presence of the “Heavenly Father”, the first time on Earth Earthlings were allowed into the presence of Anu. The pomp and circumstance that accompanied the visit of “Our Father Who Art In Heaven” is painstakingly chronicled in the works of Sitchin. One account reads as follows:
“Priests and other temple attendants served ‘wine and good oil’ and slaughtered in sacrifice a bull and a ram for Anu, Antu and all the gods … In the evening, a ceremonial meal began with a ritual washing of the hands on a celestial signal — the appearance of Jupiter, Venus, Mercury, Saturn. Mars, and the Moon. Then the first part of the meal was served, followed by a pause. While a group of priests began to chant the hymn Kakkab Anu Elellu Shamame ("The Planet of Anu Rises in the Skies"), an astronomer-priest, at the topmost stage of the tower of the temple, watched for the appearance of the Planet of Anu, Nibiru.
When the planet was sighted, the priests broke out in singing the composition To the One Who Grows Bright, the Heavenly Planet of the Lord Anu and the Psalm The Creator's Image Has Arisen. A bonfire was lit to signal the moment and to pass the news to neighbouring towns. Before the night was over, the whole land was ablaze with bonfires … To music the Anunnaki clapped and danced, to music they danced and sang.” Once they had feasted on “a meal of bull meat and ram meat, of fish and fowl, with wine and beer accompanied”, the “divine couple”, who had been cheerily chatting with members of the Anunnaki pantheon, retired to bed.
HEAVENLY FATHER DISAVOWS GALZU
King Anu slept for six straight days before he woke up. This was because Earth’s axial rotation and therefore day-night cycle was much quicker compared to that of Nibiru. A full day and night on Nibiru was equivalent to 30 Earth days, meaning on that planet, people slept for 15 Earth days assuming equal days and nights. Thus the six days Anu spent in total slumber during his visit here did not even amount to half what he normally slept on his planet.
Upon rising up, the King first attended an assembly of the Anunnaki, where thanksgiving prayers were chanted in his honour. Then he went into a closed-door, Council of the Great Gods meeting, whose other attendees were Enlil, Enki, Ninmah, and Utu-Shamash. The Sumerian records do not explain why other notable Anunnaki princes such as Ninurta, Marduk, Nannar-Sin, Nergal, Ishkur-Adad, Ningishzidda and Ninmah were not invited, but it could be that the King didn’t want a situation where the deliberations became bogged down in argumentation after argumentation from too many mouths.
As they say, too many cooks spoil the broth. As for Shamash’s presence in the meeting, he was probably meant to represent the third generation of Anunnaki royalty though he should have been balanced out with at least one third-generation Enkite. His presence was also crucial being the spaceport commander (and therefore with a great deal to report about) and the King’s personal pilot whilst he was on Earth. Enlil as Earth’s Chief Executive reported what had transpired during and after the Deluge – the heroic role of Noah and his elevation to sainthood, the discovery of new gold deposits in South America, the distribution of Earth’s principal lands among the Anunnaki on the basis of Noah’s three sons, the two pyramid wars, and how the peace was clinched.
Once Enlil was done, it was Enki’s turn. Enki not only filled the gaps Enlil had left but confessed to the King as to how he and Enoch had contrived to have Noah sired by him and how he had heeded Anu’s emissary Galzu to get Noah to build a submarine with a view to preserve mankind in the great flood. “It was not that I deliberately set out to thwart Enlil’s designs that mankind be left to his own devices as the flood raged whilst we Anunnaki were safe and secure in space or other less vulnerable locations on Earth,” he explained to his step-father. “It was at the say-so of Galzu, who you had sent down to act on your behalf.”
Listening with rapt attention as the wise Enki spoke, King Anu was nonplussed at the mention of a messenger from Nibiru known as Galzu, who had so far been to Earth twice to deliver interventionist messages on his behalf. “Who the hell is Galzu?” the King responded both angrily and dumbfounded. “I never, ever sent an emissary by that name to Earth. He’s just as mysterious to me as he was to you all.”
Enki nonetheless spoke favourably of Galzu. “On account of Galzu, Ziusudra (Noah) and the seed of life (animal and plant DNA) were saved,” he observed to Anu. Enlil, on the other hand, was scathing of Galzu for foiling his chance of returning to Nibiru. “On account of Galzu on Earth we remained,” he fumed. “The day to Nibiru you return, you shall die so did Galzu to us say.” That was arrant nonsense, Anu returned sharply. Yes, the Anunnaki who returned from an extended tour of duty on Earth had pathological and physiological problems but there were elixirs that took excellent care of that so that their biological clocks were re-aligned with Nibiru cycles.
At this point, Enlil and Enki in unison asked Anu whose emissary Galzu was if he was not Anu’s. “Who was Galzu’s principal who wanted Earthlings to be saved and who desired that we stay here on Earth?” Enki further wondered aloud. Ninmah seemed to have an inspired answer to the jigsaw. Nodding her head with self-assurance, she said, “For the Creator of All did Galzu appear.” She went on to point out that if Galzu was sent by the Creator of All (God, First Source) to intervene so that mankind was preserved, then it was also his will that Enki brought mankind into existence.
Enki’s creation of Adam with her’s and Ningishzidda’s assistance was not fate, she said, but destiny. It was not the permissive will of mortal beings like the Anunnaki were: it was the unalterable will of God. A hush descended on the five as they contemplated the ramifications of Galzu’s actions. “For a while, the five of them were silent,” the Sumerian records state. “Each the past events (the goings-on on Earth to date) in his heart recounted.”
â€¨HEAVENLY FATHER DECREES CIVILISATION FOR MANKIND
After a long, meditative lull, King Anu finally spoke. Anu made the philosophical point that the will of God overrode that of his creation and therefore whatever had happened on Earth through Galzu’s interventions was predestined and it should not be interfered with. The Anunnaki were simply instruments God used to people planet Earth. “While fates we decreed,” Anu said, “the hand of destiny every step directed. The will of the Creator of All is clear to see on Earth and for all Earthlings only emissaries we are. The Earth to Earthlings belongs: to preserve and advance them we were intended.”
Enki, who had genetically engineered mankind into existence, was exhilarated at this outright vindication of what he had done. Rising to his feet, he took a bow to Anu then said: “If that is our mission here (that is, as guarantors of the welfare of mankind), let us accordingly act.” The great King nodded in agreement and thereupon moved a motion that the Anunnaki set about advancing mankind intellectually and civilly. A debate in respect of what exactly was to be done ensued, with the dovish Enki and Ninmah the more enthusiastic and the hawkish Enlil and Shamash somewhat tepid.
When the debate concluded, it was suggested by Enki that that mankind be urbanised. Cities with modern civic facilities should be established for mankind’s sake. Secret knowledge – which simply was academics and which hitherto had been the preserve of the Anunnaki and privileged Earthlings who were tutored in what were called mystery schools and through secret societies – should be taught to mankind with almost no reservation. Furthermore, two separate pre-eminent offices should be created for mankind – that of king and priest. The king was to rule mankind on behalf of the Anunnaki and dispense justice, whereas the priest was to spearhead mankind in serving and reverencing the Anunnaki in their temple-abodes.
Anu endorsed Enki’s motion and to that end the King presented to Enlil the insignias of majesty that he would confer on the Earthling monarch. These were a divine headdress (crown, tiara); sceptre of staff (symbol of power, authority); and coiled measuring cord (representing Justice). Finally, King Anu made a declaration that the Anunnaki were not to stay on Earth indefinitely as the planet was not their preordained home. They were to return to Nibiru once mankind had been sufficiently enlightened. “Give mankind knowledge, up to a measure of secrets of heaven and Earth,” he instructed. “Laws of justice and righteousness teach them, then depart and leave.”
HEAVENLY FATHER ON TOUR OF HONOUR
After the meeting concluded, King Anu was taken on a conducted tour of Sumer, which was still under construction. The King had the honour of naming it Ki-Engi, meaning “Land of the Lofty Watchers”. The Lofty Watchers were the Anunnaki as indeed they watched over the fate and affairs of mankind. It was actually by the name Ki-Engi the Sumerians called Sumer (from Shem-Ur, meaning “Land of Rocket People”). Sumer is simply the name preferred by scholars.
The first city Anu visited was Eridu, Enki’s cult city, which had been the first to arise. The King was particularly struck by the grandeur of Enki’s mansion, which Ningishzidda had designed for him. Eridu had made great headway in a number of ways thanks to the MEs, from whose wonders only Eridu had benefitted to date in the broader Sumer. Whilst he was being shown around by Enki, Enlil registered a complaint to his father to the effect that actually everything in Eridu was a masterpiece simply because Enki had selfishly kept to himself the ME formulas. Also known as the Divine Formulas, the MEs were said to encrypt more than 100 aspects of civilisation.
The rest of the Anunnaki pantheon, Enlil besought, needed access to these crucial computer chips particularly at this juncture when mankind was to be civilised across the body. Anu politely asked Enki to share the MEs but confirmed his right to their custody as their inventor and for the exclusivity of Eridu lest they be filched by some sinister party. Enki undertook to do just that. From Eridu, Anu was taken to Nippur, where Enlil resided. There, Enlil showed him the Tablets of Destiny, which tracked the trajectories and orbits of celestial bodies and served as a record of unalterable Anunnaki decisions. Next was Kish (“Sceptre City”, denoting the seat of monarchy).
Anu designated Kish as the first city mankind was to thrive in and mandated Ninurta to administrate it, meaning he was to move from Lagash. Anu and Enlil then jointly unveiled a special phosphorescent monument in Kish called the “Heavenly Bright Object”, a device enshrining the site of kingship as mankind’s first post-diluvial king was to be installed in Kish. Enki there and then promised to avail 50 MEs to Ninurta to help kick-start the civilisation process in Kish. From there, Anu visited Lagash and in Ninurta’s own house, the Eninnu, the King presented his eldest grandson with two ceremonial weapons, the Supreme Smitter and the Supreme Hunter, in recognition of his military feats.
Finally, King Anu was flown to the “Golden Land”, today’s South America, accompanied by Enlil, Enki, Ninurta, and Adad. There, Ninurta showed him how bronze, a metal he invented, was made, as well as how gold nuggets were collected. After sailing on a lake whose shores copper was mined, he renamed it Lake Anak. The King was also taken to the spaceport that was built in the wake of the Deluge to facilitate the transfer of newly discovered gold to Nibiru. There, Anu was presented with tonnes of gold for personal use. “With gold to the brim was Anu’s celestial chariot loaded,” say the Sumerian records. The visit was capped by a trophy hunting expedition in the Amazonian wilds. It was whilst the King was shooting at the horned bisons that he received a message of bereavement.
Marduk and his firstborn son Nabu flew over and reported to the King that Sarpanit, Marduk’s wife and the mother of all his kids, had passed away. Being a full Earthling, she was not genetically disposed to live as long as the Anunnaki did. She did however enjoy a long life by the standards of mankind thanks to the ingestion of Ormus, the monoatomic white powder of gold. She died at age 76,000, having been born in the 101st shar (about 81 000 year ago) and having passed on in the 122nd shar, in 3800 BC.
Marduk also expressed concerns to Anu about his marginalisation in power politics by Enlil and the King took heed: from now henceforth, Marduk was pardoned for precipitating the Second Pyramid War along with Seth, and he and his firstborn son Nabu now were free to roam or settle anywhere in Sumer. A city-sized swathe of land that had initially been reserved for the construction of “Anu’s City” was offered to him to develop at a time of his choosing.
HEAVENLY FATHER BONKS GREAT GRANDDAUGHTER!
Returning to Sumer after touring all of the planet’s major landmarks, Anu made one revolutionary calendrical change. Up until now, the Anunnaki had been counting time in terms of the Nibiru calendar – in shars. From now on, they were to count time in Earth years. But it would take another 40 years before the decree was implemented by Enlil. The King also endorsed the allocation of lands between the Enkites and Enlilites.
Another thing Anu did was to review the ranks of the Anunnaki royalty. There were no promotions and no demotions and Ninurta was incensed. He had been of the view that having been so lavishly decorated by his grandfather, he would be reinstated as official heir to Enlil and put Sin, who had supplanted him, to shame. Anu, however, let the status quo stand. Overcome with rancour and with a sense of gross injustice gnawing away at him, Ninurta approached his father and informed him he was relinquishing his succession rights to the throne of Nibiru and his word was final.
His rank of 50, the same as Enlil, didn’t make sense if he politically still remained a minnow to Sin, whose rank was 30. Like Marduk, he would now devote all his energies to ascending to the supremacy of Earth. Sin was accordingly declared second in line to the throne of Nibiru after Anu and Enlil. Meanwhile, the King’s amatory attentions were focused on his gorgeous but enfant terrible granddaughter Inanna. Inanna had always been Anu’s mistress every time he came to Earth.
But he did not bed her on a whim: there was always a pre-copulation ritual that was performed by Antu to officially sanction the extramarital dalliance. Writes one chronicler: “At Anu’s temple at Uruk, Sumer’s sacred precinct, Anu’s wife, Antu, taught Inanna tantric sexual meditations and how to channel the sexual energy she and Anu would share to elevate their whole clan. Then Antu ritually gave Inanna to Anu. Antu and the Nibiriuan elite meditated outside the love-chamber as Anu and Inanna coupled … The sexual experience was a merging of energies which enhanced the creative powers of both partners and the aggregate of their race.”
NEXT WEEK: ANUNNAKI SPARK NEW AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT
The Central Bank has by way of its Monetary Policy Statement informed us that the Botswana economy is likely to contract by 8.9 percent over the course of the year 2020.
The IMF paints an even gloomier picture – a shrinkage of the order of 9.6 percent. That translates to just under $2 billion hived off from the overall economic yield given our average GDP of roughly $18 billion a year. In Pula terms, this is about P23 billion less goods and services produced in the country and you and I have a good guess as to what such a sum can do in terms of job creation and sustainability, boosting tax revenue, succouring both recurrent and development expenditure, and on the whole keeping our teeny-weeny economy in relatively good nick.

Just to recap, General Atiku, the Israelites were not headed for uncharted territory. The Promised Land teemed with Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites. These nations were not simply going to cut and run when they saw columns of battle-ready Israelites approach: they were going to fight to the death.
Parliament has begun debates on three related Private Members Bills on the conditions of service of members of the Security Sector.
The Bills are Prisons (Amendment) Bill, 2019, Police (Amendment) Bill, 2019 and Botswana Defence Force (Amendment) Bill, 2019. The Bills seek to amend the three statutes so that officers are placed on full salaries when on interdictions or suspensions whilst facing disciplinary boards or courts of law.
In terms of the Public Service Act, 2008 which took effect in 2010, civil servants who are indicted are paid full salary and not a portion of their emolument. Section 35(3) of the Act specifically provides that “An employee’s salary shall not be withheld during the period of his or her suspension”.
However, when parliament reformed the public service law to allow civil servants to unionize, among other things, and extended the said protection of their salaries, the process was not completed. When the House conferred the benefit on civil servants, members of the disciplined forces were left out by not accordingly amending the laws regulating their employment.
The Bills stated above seeks to ask Parliament to also include members of the forces on the said benefit. It is unfair not to include soldiers or military officers, police officers and prison waders in the benefit. Paying an officer who is facing either external or internal charges full pay is in line with the notion of ei incumbit probation qui dicit, non qui negat or the presumption of innocence; that the burden of proof is on the one who declares, not on one who denies.
The officers facing charges, either internal disciplinary or criminal charges before the courts, must be presumed innocent until proven otherwise. Paying them a portion of their salary is penalty and therefore arbitrary. Punishment by way of loss of income or anything should come as a result of a finding on the guilt by a competent court of law, tribunal or disciplinary board.
What was the rationale behind this reform in 2008 when the Public Service Act was adopted? First it was the presumption of innocence until proven otherwise.
The presumption of innocence is the legal principle that one is considered “innocent until proven guilty”. In terms of the constitution and other laws of Botswana, the presumption of innocence is a legal right of the accused in a criminal trial, and it is an international human right under the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 11.
Withholding a civil servant’s salary because they are accused of an internal disciplinary offense or a criminal offense in the courts of law, was seen as punishment before a decision by a tribunal, disciplinary board or a court of law actually finds someone culpable. Parliament in its wisdom decided that no one deserves this premature punishment.
Secondly, it was considered that people’s lives got destroyed by withholding of financial benefits during internal or judicial trials. Protection of wages is very important for any worker. Workers commit their salaries, they pay mortgages, car loans, insurances, schools fees for children and other things. When public servants were experiencing salary cuts because of interdictions, they lost their homes, cars and their children’s future.
They plummeted into instant destitution. People lost their livelihoods. Families crumbled. What was disheartening was that in many cases, these workers are ultimately exonerated by the courts or disciplinary tribunals. When they are cleared, the harm suffered is usually irreparable. Even if one is reimbursed all their dues, it is difficult to almost impossible to get one’s life back to normal.
There is a reasoning that members of the security sector should be held to very high standards of discipline and moral compass. This is true. However, other more senior public servants such as judges, permanent secretary to the President and ministers have faced suspensions, interdictions and or criminal charges in the courts but were placed on full salaries.
The yardstick against which security sector officers are held cannot be higher than the aforementioned public officials. It just wouldn’t make sense. They are in charge of the security and operate in a very sensitive area, but cannot in anyway be held to higher standards that prosecutors, magistrates, judges, ministers and even senior officials such as permanent secretaries.
Moreover, jail guards, police officers and soldiers, have unique harsh punishments which deter many of them from committing misdemeanors and serious crimes. So, the argument that if the suspension or interdiction with full pay is introduced it would open floodgates of lawlessness is illogical.
Security Sector members work in very difficult conditions. Sometimes this drives them into depression and other emotional conditions. The truth is that many seldom receive proper and adequate counseling or such related therapies. They see horrifying scenes whilst on duty. Jail guards double as hangmen/women.
Detectives attend to autopsies on cases they are dealing with. Traffic police officers are usually the first at accident scenes. Soldiers fight and kill poachers. In all these cases, their minds are troubled. They are human. These conditions also play a part in their behaviors. They are actually more deserving to be paid full salaries when they’re facing allegations of misconduct.
To withhold up to 50 percent of the police, prison workers and the military officers’ salaries during their interdiction or suspensions from work is punitive, insensitive and prejudicial as we do not do the same for other employees employed by the government.
The rest enjoy their full salaries when they are at home and it is for a good reason as no one should be made to suffer before being found blameworthy. The ruling party seems to have taken a position to negate the Bills and the collective opposition argue in the affirmative. The debate have just began and will continue next week Thursday, a day designated for Private Bills.
