I find it EXTREMELY interesting that Sumer texts refer to two brothers Enki and Enlil as being rulers over earth. The brothers father was Anu, who was God Almighty. According to Sumer texts it was Enlil who created Eden, while his brother Enki created Adam. Yet Enlil wanted to enslave man and make man dependant upon the "Gods". Enki, being the creator of man, felt compassion and helped man acquire the knowledge and power to be self sufficint. Enlil eventually banished man from Eden, and according to Sumer text it was Enki who helped man obtain clothing.
A rift eventually broke out between the two brothers as their father Anu promoted Enlil to a higher position (based on their mothers position - they had different mothers) among the counsel, then that of Enki - see Hebrew cross reference:
Psalm 29:1: Ascribe to Yahweh, O sons of EL, ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength.
Psalm 89:6: For who in the skies can be compared to Yahweh, who among the sons of EL is like Yahweh
According to Sumer text it was Enlil who decided to destroy mankind because they had become too numerous and were making too much noise and it was keeping Enlil awake. Enki told Enlil and the counsel (who later regretted their decision that he would curb mankinds growth by giving women stillbirths or infertility. This did not work so Enki gave boat plans to Noah (or Gilgamesh) so that man had some chance of survival. Later in Hebrew and other texts salvation was ascribed to Enlil and not Enki.
The Anunnaki of ancient Sumerian texts is similarly defined as “those who from heaven to earth came”.
I find it interesting that Enki's symbol is that of a snake which denotes health and wisdom.
So is Anu - El, Enki - Satan, and Enlil - Yahweh? According to Sumer tradition Abram chose Enlil as his god, and it seems if you can compare Enlil to Jehovah that Jehovah treated the Jews like shit.
If Enki is Satan, and the freedom fighter for man, then why do the Jews, and Christians follow the wrong god? Very interesting to say the least...the similiarities are very striking.
