My rating: 5 of 5 stars
"The god is the devil and the devil is our maker" this is the highlight of "Salve species of God". I have read couple of books written by Zecharia Sitchin and this book authored by Michael Tellinger closely follows his works. The author mentions the difference between God and god. The god with small 'g' are Anunnaki astronauts and explorers who settled on Earth some 443,000 years ago under the command of Anu, the supreme ruler of Planet Nibiru. An intelligent race like Anunnaki why should they have to settle in Earth is very much explained in the book.

The author questions us "Who are we? How did we get here? And, why are we here?" He gives citations from many books why we are created. His predominant examples are from the Sumerian cuneiform tablets. I was awestruck when I read the similarities between Enuma Elish or the Epic of Creation and the Genesis in the Old Testament.

According to the Sumerian clay tablets the tenth planet of our solar system Nibiru (has odd orbit) which takes 3600 years for one rotation, the planet has its own source of heat (radiant) it is also called as planet of the crossing and it is represented in the clay tablets as cross. The planet loses its ozone kind of layer and the ruler of Nibiru, I forget his name! he was the ruler before Anu takes up the leadership. After losing the fight with Anu for leadership he escapes from the planet and reaches Earth through asteroid belt. Here he finds the precious metal Gold in abundance and sends the message to his home planet. Anu after counseling accepts and plans to send his first son Enki (Ea) to mine gold. He reaches Abzu (South Africa) and starts to mine gold, they name Earth as Ki and Mars as Lahmu. They create a space base in Mars which has less gravity than Earth. In due course that is thousands of years Enki's brother Enlil is sent to command Earth. He selects the cedar mountain region that is present day Lebanon as his home.
The mining was laborious process and the workers start to agitate and complain, Enki and his sister Ninmah experiments and creates Adamu the first human species combining the genes of Homo erectus and their own gene. Like Anunnaki the human species had long life span and intelligent like the maker. They then manipulate our gene with that our intelligence has been suppressed, knowledge has been erased, our lifespan has genetically shortened and our memory been removed.
Scientifically the author shows the evidence that chromosomal Adam and mitochondrial Eve were created between 180,000 to 250,000 years ago.
We were created as their slaves to extract gold for their planet to sustain life. As their mission nears completion, they come to know that Nibiru will be closer to Mars and Earth orbit which will create havoc for both planets. Enki is benevolent towards his creation which angers Enlil as he is the commander asks his promise to erase the human kind from earth. The event is the great flood Enki breaks his promise and helps his son born from his own creation Ziusudra (Noah) escape from the calamity. The Sumerian clay tablets elaborates how Ziusudra takes the life essence (that is the sperm, Ova etc) of each species with them to his ark. After the flood the Anunnaki realizes not only Earth and Mars affected but also their own planet Nibiru.
They search new place for gold now they find America suitable for their purpose. After the end of Ice age Enki helps human kind in teaching agriculture and they create their own civilization. Whereas Enlil who still commands Earth was against such schemes. According to the clay tablets Enki is the Serpent god and Enlil the Lord of Adamu and Ti-Amat (Eve) tasting the fruit in Edin is a representation of Enki teaching them the real meaning of their life. Enki was portrayed as devil and Enlil as god. Now we know why god became devil and why devil is our maker.
Their fight still continues, the author mentions that Our arrogance is our weakness and our ignorance a congenital disease that will eventually destroy us. Since we have the DNA of the Anunnaki with us and we were made in their image of our maker, it must surely mean that we inherited more than just his physical features. He also mentions the schemes of Enlil and Marduk that there is not a single religion on Earth that was created by God. But there are several which were imposed on us by the ancient gods.
It is big book, Chapters 1,2 and Chapters 15 and 16 are page turners. In between the author has given exhaustive list of various gods (remember god with small g) of Roman, Greek, Hindu etc. And also a list of people according to the religious belief. The book started to drag after 40% as I mentioned earlier the last two chapters having 200 odd pages are page turners. In my opinion the author should have reduced the pages and given only shortened account of numerous gods and census of the world.
