Sexually fulfilled Inanna elevates her great Earthling stud to Sumerian throne

Let us now revert to the relevant timeframe in  which we are at this stage of The Earth Chronicles, that is, in the 3rd Millennium BC (3000 to 2000 BC) after fast-forwarding to the day of  the Nebuchadnezzars and Alexander the Greats of this world. It was during this period that Gilgamesh, the great King of Uruk, Inanna-Ishtar’s cult centre, waxed and waned. It was also during this time, circa 2760 to 2600 BC, that Enkidu, Gilgamesh’s best friend, destroyed the Gudanna, Enlil’s magnificent fighter craft, on the outskirts of Uruk. 


The destruction of the Gudanna was a telling blow to Enlil, the Bible’s principal Jehovah/Yahweh.  The Gudanna was synonymous with Enlil himself. It was the symbol of Enlil, who was the presiding god over the astrological Age of Taurus (4380-2220 BC), whose emblem was the bull. Enlil was thus known as the Bull of Heaven  and the Gudanna too was called the Bull of Heaven. The destruction  of the Gudanna therefore was a very bad portent  for Enlil, who was so incensed he engineered the subtle killing of Enkidu in  a shipwreck triggered by a hitman of his  around today’s Strait of Ormuz near Oman using a sophisticated directed-energy weapon.


The Anunnaki believed in fates and omens. As far as they were concerned, nothing happened by chance: every event had a karmic purpose or a message. It was either destiny (the unalterable will of God) or fate (the flexible will of God whereby man had a “say” through his own random actions). As such, the destruction of the Gudanna was interpreted as a severe dent to Enlil’s power and authority over Earth.


To Marduk, it signalled that Enlil’s days as Earth’s ruler were numbered, that his (Marduk) time to rule was more imminent than he had initially thought. In fact, in northern Egypt and other predominantly Enkite domains or population pockets, the “Slaying of the Bull”, as the downing of the Gudanna was dubbed, was celebrated like a carnival.


Now, when the Gudanna was destroyed, Inanna, who had been riding in it in pursuit of Gilgamesh and Enkidu, “in her abode set up a wail all the way to Anu in the heavens”. At a superficial level, this suggested she was saddened and hurt that  her grandfather’s aura of invisibility symbolically speaking had been pierced. But it was all a make-believe stunt. Inanna had schemed the Gudanna’s destruction with the unwitting assistance of her twin brother Utu-Shamash, who had provided Gilgamesh and Enkidu with a sophisticated, shoulder mounted surface-to-air missile which a quick-witted Enkidu employed to pinpoint precision. 


Why did Inanna want the Gudanna destroyed? Because she was positioning herself to become the new Enlil at the expense of Marduk in the forthcoming astrological Age of Aries. The destruction of the Gudanna was therefore her way of serving symbolic notice to Enlil that it was time he moved over and she took over as Earth’s sovereign, that he was ill-suited for the power politics of the day that needed the participation only of a fresher generation and not geriatrics like he was.  Sadly, a dim Enlil failed to read through Inanna’s cunning and instead directed his wrath at the mere pawn that was Enkidu. This Earth, My Brother ...

ENLIL-IN-WAITING MARDUK DEPLOYS AMARU INTO SUMERIA

At the time of the destruction of the Gudanna, the two most powerful Enlilites, Enlil himself and his eldest son Ninurta, were nowhere near Sumeria. Where were they? The Sumerians records do not specify. The two could have been in South America or on a trip to either Mars or the Moon.


The destruction of the Gudanna, coupled with the absence of Enlil,  suggested Sumeria was in some chaos. There was a huge power vacuum there which needed to be filled instantly. In the event, Marduk,  the incumbent god of Egypt, had reason to salivate as to him it seemed like Enlil had stopped just short of abdicating. But Marduk chose to exercise tact instead of acting rashly.


He mobilised his followers who  were based in Europe, which at the time included Syria and Lebanon, as well as in Judea in southern Canaan, and ordered them to fan out into Sumeria to ready it for his eventual takeover. These people were known as the Amaru, meaning “Light-Skinned Ones”. In today’s English and in the English translation of the Old Testament, they are known as Amorites.   Europe is actually E-ru-pan, meaning “Land (pan) of White-Skinned People (Eru)”.


Exactly who were the Amaru? According to GENESIS 10:15-16, the Amaru were the offspring of a unnamed son of Canaan, Ham’s fourth-born son. Now, if you recall, we did aver in one of our earlier articles that Noah’s sons, namely Japheth, Ham, and Shem (who were born in the same year through artificial insemination) were not of varying races. None was black, white or brown: they all were brownish in their pigmentation, like what we today call coloureds.


It explains why the Amaru are described as light-skinned, just as the dark-skinned Bantus referred to the San people as BaSarwa (Ba-Se-Ru, meaning “Those Who Are Like The Europeans” by virtue of their yellow skin) when they encountered them here in southern  Africa following their (Bantus) great trek from Egypt.    If Ham and therefore his son Canaan were pitch black, they would not have given rise to light-skinned Amaru. 


The Amorites seemed to have plenty of Anunnaki genes in them, just like Noah their forefather. In DEUTERONOMY 3:11, Moses describes their King Og’s  bed as measuring 13.5 feet long, or just over 4 metres. The Amaru were giants, like the Nephilim, a derogatory term for the Igigis, or Anunnaki cosmonauts.  They are said, in the Bible, to be “of the height of the cedars” and  “of the remnants of the giants”. The Amaru, the first “Westerners”, were no doubt a formidable Enkite force. But were they capable of overrunning the whole of Sumeria and deliver it on a silver platter to their god Marduk as his appointed Age of the Ram dawned?
    
WAYWARD KING LUGAL RILES ENLIL


Sadly, when the Amaru gained dominion over much of Sumer, more so the northwest, they turned out to be an undisciplined and gravely fractured lot who revelled in warring against each other. In the process, Sumer was deeply balkanised and chaos rather than order took root. Initially, the Enlilite gods, who dominated Sumer in the form of Enlil, Ninurta, Nannar-Sin, Ishkur-Adad and Inanna-Ishtar, simply watched, delighted that with Marduk’s own people killing each other on Sumerian soil, they would end up annihilating each other and Marduk would be the loser at long last. But the chaos was such that the Enlilites finally decided they had had enough and  it was time they acted.


In a meeting of the Enlilite Council of the Gods, Inanna was tasked to find and groom a strongman, a demigod, to rule over all of Sumer like Cain and Etana before him had done. This man would be the sole intermediary between mankind and the gods and would devoutly serve the agenda of the Enlilites. “To Inanna, of Marduk the adversary, the task of the right man to find they entrusted”, say the Sumerian chronicles. 


As before, the city-state chosen for the resumption of overarching human kingship was Kish, which was fitting as Kish meant “Sceptre City”, or “Seat of Monarchy” (over the ages, kingship had moved scores of times from city-state to city-state though for the last 2300 years it had stayed put at Uruk, having waned after the advent of Gilgamesh and moved to Ur, Sin’s cult city, though presently it was in disarray courtesy of the thick-headed Amorites). But in moving towards that end, the first pilot king would be based in Uruk, Inanna’s cult city, which presently though was in the hands of the Amorites.


The resumptive human king chosen by Inanna was Lugalzagesi. Lugalzagesi was the Ensi, or “Priest King” of Umma, today’s Tell Jokha, about 400 km southeast of Baghdad in Iraq and midway between the Tigris and Euphrates, where he served as high priest to the goddess Ninsaba, a daughter of Enki and Ninmah.  Lugalzagesi, however, ruled for only 25 years before stepping onto the toes of Enlil. Lugalzagesi had his work cut out. 


He was to reconquer all the cities the Enlilites had lost to the Amorites and therefore spike Marduk. This he did with a flourish: in the 25 years he ruled, he had retaken for the Enlilites Lagash, Ur, Uruk (which he made his headquarters as per the Enlilite plan), Nippur, Larsa, Aksha, and Kish in that order. In his writings, he boasted that Enlil enabled him to overrun “all the lands between the upper and the lower seas", that is the Mediterranean Sea and the Persian Gulf.


Then he rubbed the very Enlil he was crediting for his conquests the wrong way. Like most people besotted with power, Lugalzagesi wanted Uruk to be the seat of kingship in perpetuity and not Kish as per the Enlilites’ ultimate designs. In order to see to it that Kish had no chance whatsoever of reclaiming kingship, he not only overthrew its King Ur-Zababa but recklessly and severely ravaged its infrastructure, reducing it from Sumer’s most spectacular city to its sorriest eyesore. 


Since Kish was the city Enlil had earmarked as the future capital of Sumer, he was incensed and when that happened the offender was a marked man. Indeed, Enlil immediately ordered Inanna as patron goddess of Uruk to set in motion a programme for Lugalzagesi’s ouster.    


SARGON’S BEGINNINGS GRAFTED ONTO THE MOSES STORY

The person Inanna settled for to replace Lugalzagesi is best-known in history as Sargon the Great.  As with everything involving Inanna, the circumstances that led to his choice are kind of dissolute. Exactly who was Sargon? As with most ancient royal personages, his real name is not known. Sargon is the English rendition of the Semitic Sharru-Kin. This can be interpreted in two ways. First, it could be the Semitic (Akkadian) equivalent of the Sumerian Ensi.


In that case, it should be interpreted as “Priest-King” or “Righteous Ruler”, just like Lugalzagesi was. Secondly, it could simply be Se-Ru-Kin, meaning “A European-born King”. Certainly, Sargon was of Amaru parentage and as we have seen above, the Amaru were European immigrants to Sumer. But Sargon was more than a European: he was a demigod, the son of an Anunnaki god and an Earthling woman. His mother was an Entu, a high priestess to the god Nannar-Sin, who fathered Sargon in a Gigunu setting as per godly privilege.


However, Sin did not intend little Sargon to be simply one of his scores of children: he had special future designs on him, into which he took Sargon’s mother in confidence. But fearing that victimisation of some sort might come to her son, from Sin’s legitimate sons with official wife Ningal, Sargon’s mother raised him in absolute secrecy with the connivance of one agrarian. In his autobiography, which scholars have titled The Legend of Sargon, Sargon himself relates his clandestine upbringing as follows:


“My mother was a high priestess.  I knew not my father. My mother, the high priestess who conceived me, in secret she bore me. She set me in a basket of reeds, its lid sealed with bitumen. She cast me into the river; it did not sink with me. The river bore me up; it carried me to Akki the irrigator. Akki the irrigator lifted me up when he drew water. Akki the irrigator as a son made me and reared me. Akki the irrigator appointed me as his gardener."


Where did you hear that? It’s in the story of Moses. Now you know that Moses’ infant story is not factual: it was lifted straight and unabashedly from that of Sargon, whose life preceded that of Moses by more than a thousand years. And Christians say the Bible is “inspired by God?” This Earth, My Brother ...

SARGON’S GREAT PENIS WOOS INANNA

Having being raised under the auspices of a doting  agriculturalist, Sargon himself became an agriculturalist of note.  He particularly excelled at growing dates. In practically every royal meal of the day, gargantuan quantities of dates were consumed, which made date growers enormously rich. Since Sargon was not only rich but was a demigod, he was noticed by King Ur-Zababa of Kish (long before he was overthrown by Lugalzagesi). Ur-Zababa was of course tipped by the Anunnaki royalty that Sargon had the blood of the god Nannar-Sin coursing in his veins and therefore was deserving of a plum post in the corridors of power. Accordingly, Lugalzagesi made Sargon his Cup-Bearer.


What did the post of Cup-Bearer entail?  It was the most trusted and exalted position in the palace.  It was typically held by the heir to the throne. The Cup-Bearer was the chief advisor to the King. And not only that: he was the most trusted. Every food item or drink that was prepared  for the King was first tasted by the Cup-Bearer before the King partook of it. The Cup-Bearer was therefore at the side of the King all the while. If you recall,  Alalu, the Anunnaki pioneer of Earth and Enki’s father-in-law, was once Cup-Bearer and heir to Anu on the throne planet of the Sirian star system.


One day, circa 2400 BC, Sargon, after tending his backyard garden, decided to sun himself in a hammock stark naked. As he dozed off in the process, Inanna, who was riding in a chopper  overhead decided to swoop low so she could  make a close-quarters appreciation of his mighty prick. However, when Inanna descended, she pretended to fall  asleep in a backseat couch in her chopper.


Sargon, who had been awakened by the loud roar of the  chopper’s engine, decided to investigate who this intruder was  who had parked his or her chopper right in his yard and refrained from emerging. Although he did expect the intruder to be a “god”,  he was surprised as to exactly who it was – a completely naked Inanna dead asleep. Well, when a naked man encounters a naked woman, the inevitable must follow.


Dumbfounded by Inanna’s beauty and  tantalising, ageless  features, Sargon  did not even attempt to rouse Inanna from her apparent slumber: he mounted her straightaway so overcome with desire was he. We call this one-sided indulgence in the sexual act  rape, which indeed Sargon himself recognised it was.


“One day my Queen Inanna, after crossing heaven, crossing earth, after crossing Elam and Shubur  ... approached weary, fell asleep,” he recounts in his famous memoirs referred to above.  “I saw her from the edge of my garden, kissed her, copulated with her.”


To his glee, when the bumping and grinding stirred Inanna to life, Inanna, who was Sargon’s half-sister in that they shared the same  father Nannar-Sin, did not scream or attempt to sink her teeth into his balls; instead, she flung her arms around his thick neck and wrapped her shapely legs around his waist  whilst she kissed him feverishly.  “Her eyes shone with pleasure”, Sargon writes.  From that day on, Sargon was in her bag.


Not only did she want him to be the daily satiator of her bedtime cravings: she wanted him to be king of her cult city-state of Uruk and eventually as a replacement for Lugalzagesi as overall king of human affairs.  To Inanna, when you were great in bed and was bountifully gifted below the belt, you were automatically entitled to anything of your desire plus much more besides.

SARGON IS KING OF SUMER

At the time of Inanna’s encounter with Sargon, Lugalzagesi was still the superintending King of Sumer though total tranquillity was still a far-cry with pockets of resistance here and there, and Ur-Zababa had been ejected by the same Lugalzagesi from the throne of Kish.   But Lugalzagesi as we have already noted above had angered Enlil and was consequently blacklisted. Thus when Inanna recommended Sargon as the fitting replacement for Lugalzagesi, that, with the added advantage of his being Nannar-Sin’s extra-wedlock  son, very favourably disposed Enlil towards him.  


Writes Zechariah Sitchin: “Sumer, its civilisation a millennium and a half old by then, needed a strong hand at the helm of its Kingship —a Kingship that, after the glorious one in Uruk, kept changing capitals; the changes led to conflicts among the cities and eventually between their patron-gods. Seeing in Sargon a man of action and resolve, Inanna recommended him as the next king over all of Sumer and Akkad ... It is quite possible that Sargon's Amorite ancestry might have been a favourable consideration, in view of the pressures on Sumer by migrants from the west and northwest.”


Having been given the nod by Enlil and obtained the blessings of King Anu of Nibiru, Sargon moved to confront Lugalzagesi. With the formidable military arsenal provided Sargon by Enlil and with the strategic aid and battlefront participation of Inanna, it was a walkover. Lugalzagesi was captured and had his neck “forced under a yoke and led to the gates of the god Enlil at Nippur”, thus putting paid to Uruk’s Third dynasty, which was represented solely by Lugalzagesi himself. Soon Sargon had united all Sumer and was the undisputed King of Earthlings. He would rule for a total of 54 years, from circa 2400-2346 BC.
