Publisher's Summary

Our origins as a slave species and the Anunnaki legacy in our DNA

  • Reveals compelling new archaeological and genetic evidence for the engineered origins of the human species, first proposed by Zecharia Sitchin in The 12th Planet
  • Shows how the Anunnaki created us using pieces of their own DNA, controlling our physical and mental capabilities by inactivating their more advanced DNA 
  • Identifies a recently discovered complex of sophisticated ruins in South Africa as the city of the Anunnaki leader Enki

Scholars have long believed that the first civilization on Earth emerged in Sumer some 6,000 years ago. However, as Michael Tellinger reveals, the Sumerians and Egyptians inherited their knowledge from an earlier civilization that lived at the southern tip of Africa and began with the arrival of the Anunnaki more than 200,000 years ago. Sent to Earth in search of life-saving gold, these ancient Anunnaki astronauts from the planet Nibiru created the first humans as a slave race to mine gold - thus beginning our global traditions of gold obsession, slavery, and god as dominating master.  

Revealing new archaeological and genetic evidence in support of Zecharia Sitchin’s revolutionary work with pre-biblical clay tablets, Tellinger shows how the Anunnaki created us using pieces of their own DNA, controlling our physical and mental capabilities by inactivating their more advanced DNA - which explains why less than 3 percent of our DNA is active. He identifies a recently discovered complex of sophisticated ruins in South Africa, complete with thousands of mines, as the city of Anunnaki leader Enki and explains their lost technologies that used the power of sound as a source of energy. Matching key mythologies of the world’s religions to the Sumerian clay tablet stories on which they are based, he details the actual events behind these tales of direct physical interactions with “god,” concluding with the epic flood - a perennial theme of ancient myth - that wiped out the Anunnaki mining operations. 

Tellinger shows that, as humanity awakens to the truth about our origins, we can overcome our programmed animalistic and slave-like nature, tap in to our dormant Anunnaki DNA, and realize the longevity and intelligence of our creators as well as learn the difference between the gods of myth and the true loving God of our universe.

Critic Reviews

“Throughout the ‘educated’ world the idea of ancient alien intervention is pushing serious academics out of their ivory towers. Michael Tellinger is at the forefront, along with Zecharia Sitchin and Erich von Daniken, bringing us information that will eventually change the way we see ourselves and our place in the cosmos. If you think you knew about DNA manipulation, the Anunnaki, or their secret mission on Earth, you need to read this book and take the next step. This is truly an amazing book that has been well researched.” (Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide) 

“If you have ever wondered about the age-old questions concerning the human race: Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? Answers may be found in Michael Tellinger’s book Slave Species of the Gods. Clearly written, it’s a fast and gripping read that covers everything from biology, science, and history to religion, mythological gods, and ancient astronauts. Don’t miss this one.” (Jim Marrs, author of Rule by Secrecy, Alien Agenda, and Crossfire)

“Michael Tellinger’s groundbreaking work presents evidence that challenges all the conventional major assumptions about human origins and history. Emerging into our true power and significance cannot happen until we realize we are not the pinnacle of God’s creation, not even among the creatures of this Earth.” (MíCeál Ledwith, DD, LLD, coauthor of The Orb Project)

GODLY READ WRITTEN BY NO SLAVE RACE AS HE PROVES

Extra-terrestrials with gold carats, some undue slavery, many indecipherable clay tablets, all whilst on a journey of discovery before the book of geneses, for that a watered down version that was written from yielded copies long, long before it's inception, and in any certain case, very much so prior to the many mass (pun) amount of printed bibles in circulation of the ancient races that had no such written material of use. So they lost them, and here we are. . . listen for the rest of the story!

Was not expecting a book about politics

I got this book because the topic was intriguing and it is. However, when the author side tracks into modern day politics and makes broad political assertions about things he can't know, and states them as facts, it made me start questioning other assertions he was making that did relate to the subject matter. I will be returning this book.

Repetitive

Not worth buying. Repeated what is already common knowledge. Rehashing of history and news. Good narrator.

Interesting perspective soured by personal politics. Naturally

Keep in mind this person literally suggests George Soros is part god.... There is too much hatred coming from this author to even attempt a consideration of immortal aliens being responsible for everything imaginable.

Completely changed my world view

This is no joke. It really DID completely change my world view. I realize that some will say that this guy doesn't know what he's talking about, but this is not true. He has come up with a plausible and very likely beginning to homo sapien sapien by thoroughly researching every culture's and religion's historical documents, cities, ruins, artifacts, etc., etc., etc, since the beginning of time that we know. He painstakingly presents every detail and connects the dots with volumes of documentation throughout that you are probably familiar with and some not. It is so clear who we are and where we come from as a species. I see the reality behind so many things now, including all religions and their writings, practices and dogmatic rules, mythology, our own "slave" mentality, wars, politics, family relationships, etc. It's hard for me to look at rituals and not think where they came from and what they represent. If you are closed to allowing an "argument" to open you up to new thoughts, closed to the broadest picture of our world, opposed to changing the way you look at your own religion, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK because it will change you. It is mind blowing. I loved it!

Dude - Slow down!

The narrator has a great voice but is in waaay too much of a hurry to get on to the next sentence. Having got my one big negative out of the way, I must say that everything else about the book was excellent. I’m not sure that I buy everything that the author is saying but if one listens with an open mind one is bound to come away with some pretty interesting questions, if nothing else. I found his information compelling, as it corresponds with so many other texts and assertions that I’ve come across over the years and which fits very snuggly with an evolving picture that I’m seeing coming together of a large agenda by certain segments of the population to control and limit our access to knowledge of our history and to where we come from. The author takes much of the information he presents here from ancient Mesopotamian clay tablets as translated by Zecharia Sitchin. Some of what he says seems a bit iffy, to say the least, but overall it’s an eye opener. We’ve been being controlled and manipulated since the beginning of time by lies, misinformation and withholding of information. A few people are waking up to that fact and are digging deeply into that labyrinthine rabbit hole and are courageous enough to speak out about what they’re finding, willing to face the ridicule and slander that inevitably comes their way. Kudos to Michael Tellinger for choosing that path.

Outstanding!

This is a book which captivates from beginning to end. The age old description fits perfectly; ‘Never a dull moment.’ Many of the confusing allegorical stories of the Bible are given new light. The reader with open mind will not want to stop listening!

Ehhh

I love the main overall topic he talks about but he is an extreme communist he not only rambles on about non important things but gets sidetracked preaching his belief in communism. He speaks about how all capitalists want to enslave the poor. I believe in capitalism and he speaks on how all capitalism are controlling the world. He sounds like a fanatic who he himself is jealous for never having money. Look at any communist country they control everything you do and say and that’s happening NOW. He keeps preaching on how capitalism will rule the world in the FUTURE. He’s a little closed minded. Is there really something wrong with us chasing money? I love money and yet I would never hurt anyone to gain more. Just because a few scum bags have started a war to gain money doesn’t mean that we all would do that. Money helps us enjoy our life’s in many different ways. Just wish he would leave politics out of this

Brilliant !!

I’ve been fascinated with the Sumerians for more than 15 years. When I started there wasn’t a lot of information and had to do a lot of digging. This book is very well researched and covers a lot of ground! A fantastic audiobook for anyone interested in the ancient gods and searching to understand and make sense of why and what our origins are and how the gods have influenced humanity over time and how they still influence events right up until today. Cannot recommend enough!

Superb Detal

Do not read this book if you do not want you fixed ideas on religion challenged to the core. I think the author is at times a little too focused on speculating that ancient gods interfered with certain key historical events. For example, putting forward the view that Jesus was a patsy who was set up by the ancient gods in their evil 'divide and conquer' plan. What the author does get across is how angry and vengeful the God of the old testament was....a God that could not be the same as the God of the New Testament. And the overwhelming evidence that there was a higher level of intelligence a long time before the so called first civilisations. I do agree that modern historians disregard any clear evidence that does not fit with the 'standard model', and this is a very serious problem. The best example is the dating of the Sphinx....the research by esteemed geologists pointing to water erosion thousands of years before the accepted time of construction is very compelling...and the fact that most Egyptologists chose to disregard this shows how immature we are as a species. However, proponents of ancient alien theory should not become the same...by automatically assuming that there is a very grand conspiracy by every historian in the world. The only way to reveal the truth is for everyone to keep an open mind and to be prepared to consider alternative views. Really enjoyed this audiobook....

love this Book

I loved this book. It is loaded with research facts and I can see that Michael has done thorough research. In some stages it can feel a bit fact heavy and the narrator tries his best to keep the listener entertained. well worth your time.
