…In the year 363 His Majesty Ra, the holy one, the Falcon of the Horizon, the Immortal who forever lives, was in the land of Khenn. He was accompanied by his warriors, for the enemies had conspired against their lord… Horus, the Winged Measurer, came to the boat of Ra. He said to his forefather: "O Falcon of the Horizon, I have seen the enemy conspire against thy Lordship, to trade the Luminous Crown unto themselves…" Then Ra, the holy one, the Falcon of the Horizon, said unto Horus, the Winged Measurer: "Lofty issue of Ra, my begotten: Go quickly, knock down the enemy whom you have seen."
…Thus began the tale inscribed on the temple walls in the ancient Egyptian city of Edfu. It is the tale we believe, of what could only be called the First Pyramid War – a war that had its roots in the never-ending struggle for control over Earth and its space facilities and in the shenanigans of the Great Anunnaki, especially Enki/Ptah and his son Ra/Marduk.
…Although the Sinai peninsula, where the Spaceport was established, and the Giza pyramids were supposed to remain neutral under the aegis of Ninharsag, it is doubtful whether the builders of these facilities – Enki and his descendants – had really any intentions of relinquishing control over these installations. A Sumerian text, which begins with an idyllic description, has been named by scholars a "Paradise Myth." Its ancient name was Enki and Ninharsag, and it is, in fact, a tale of a deal between Enki and his half-sister Ninharsag pertaining to the control of Egypt and the Sinai peninsula – of the pyramids and the Spaceport.
…The tale’s time is after Earth was apportioned between the Anunnaki, with Tilmun (the Sinai peninsula) granted to Ninharsag and Egypt as Enki’s clan.
…Enki’s real intention was to obtain a son by his half-sister; but the offspring was a daughter.
…Enki later committed incest with his daughter and grand-daughter. Eight gods – six female and two male were born to Enki. Ninharsag angered, stopped him with her nursing skills making Enki sick.
Eventually, Ninharsag changed her mind, and:
…After she cured his body part by part, Enki proposed that the two of them as masters of Egypt and the Sinai assign tasks, spouses, and territories to the eight young gods:
Let Abu be the master of the plants;
Let Nintulla be the lord of Magan;
Let Ninsutu marry Ninazu;
Let Ninkashi be she who sates the thirsts;
Let Nazi marry Nindara;
Let Azimua marry Ningishzida;
Let Nintu be the queen of the months;
Let Enshag be the lord of Tilmun!
…Egyptian theological texts from Memphis likewise held that "there came into being" eight gods from the heart, tongue, teeth, lips and other parts of the body of Ptah.
…If, as it appears, these tales had a basis in fact, then the rivalries that such confused parentages brought about could only be aggravated by the sexual shenanigans attributed to Ra as well. The most significant among these was the assertion that Osiris was truly the son of Ra and not of Geb, conceived when Ra had come by stealth unto his own granddaughter. This as we have earlier related, lay at the core of the Osiris-Seth conflict.
…Why had Seth, to whom Upper Egypt had been allotted by Geb, coveted Lower Egypt, which was granted to Osiris? Egyptologists have offered explanations in terms of geography, the land’s fertility, etc. But as we have shown, there was one more factor – one that, from the god’s point of view, was more important than how many crops a region could grow: The Great Pyramid and its companions at Giza; whoever controlled them shared in the control of the space activities, of the coming and goings of the gods, of the vital supply link to and from the Twelfth Planet…
…"In the year 363" following the disappearance of Osiris, the young Horus became the avenger of his father and launched a war against Seth – the First Pyramid War. It was, as we have seen, also the first war in which the gods involved men in their struggles.
…Supported by other Enki-gods reigning in Africa, the avenger
Horus began the hostilities in Upper Egypt. Aided by the Winged Disk that Thoth had fashioned for him, Horus persistently advanced northward, toward the pyramids.
After fierce battles Horus became victorious, with Seth hiding in one battle, and being seriously wounded in another.
…So the Council of the Gods gave the whole of Egypt "as heritage… to Horus."
…And what had become of Seth, one of the eight gods descended from
…He was banished from Egypt and took abode in Asiatic lands to the east, including a place that enabled him "to speak out from the sky." Was he the god called Enshag in the Sumerian tale of Enki and Ninharsag, the one to whom Tilmun (the Sinai peninsula) was allotted by the two lovemakers? If so, then he was the Egyptian (Hamitic) who had extended his domain over the land of Shem later known as Canaan.
…It was in this outcome of the First Pyramid War that there lies an understanding of biblical tales. Therein lay the causes of the Second Pyramid War.
…In addition to the Spaceport and the guidance facilities, there was also a need after the Deluge for a new Mission control Center, to replace the one that had existed before in Nippur. We have shown (in The Stairway to Heaven) that the need to equidistance this center from the other space-related facilities dictated its locating on Mount Moriah ("The Mount of Directing"), the site of the future city of Jerusalem.
…That site, by both Mesopotamian and biblical accounts, was located in the lands of Shem – a dominion of the Enlilites. Yet it ended up under an illegal occupation by the line of Enki, the Hamitic gods, and by the descendants of the Hamitic Canaan.
…The tale in the Book of Genesis leaves many aspects unexplained. Why was Canaan accursed if it was his father who had accidentally transgressed? Why was his punishment to be a slave of Shem and to the god of Shem? And how were the gods involved in the crime and its punishment? As one reads the supplemental information in the ex-biblical Book of Jubilees, it becomes clear that the real offense was the illegal occupation of Shem’s territory.
…Seth’s trespass into Canaan meant that all the space-related sites – Giza, the Sinai peninsula, Jerusalem – came under the control of the Enki gods. It was a development in which the Enlilites could not acquiesce. And so, soon thereafter – 300 years later, we believe – they deliberately launched a war to dislodge the illegal occupiers from the vital space facilities. This Second Pyramid War is described in several texts , some found in the original Sumerian, others in Akkadian and Assyrian renderings. Scholars refer to these texts as the "Myths of Kur" – "myths" of the Mountain Lands; they are, in fact, poetically rendered chronicles of the war to control the space-related peaks – Mount Moriah; the Harsag (Mount St. Katherine) in the Sinai; and the artificial mount, the Ekur (the Great Pyramid) in Egypt.
…The Hamitic gods were beaten there, but they retreated to continue the war from the mountain lands of Africa. Ninurta rose to the challenge… in this final phase the war was fought at the Great Pyramid; the last and impregnable stronghold of Ninurta’s opponents; there the Hamitic gods were besieged until they ran out of food and water.
…This war, which we call the Second Pyramid War was commemorated extensively in Sumerian records – both written chronicles and pictorial depictions:
King, the glory of thy day is lordly;
Ninurta, Foremost, possessor of the Divine Powers,
who into the throes of the Mountainlands stepped forth.
Like a flood which cannot be stopped,
the Enemyland as with a girdle you tightly bound.
Foremost one, who in battle vehemently enters;
Hero, who in his hand the Divine Brilliant Weapon carries;
Lord: the Mountainland you subdued as your creature.
Ninurta, royal son, whose father to him had given might;
Hero: in fear of thee, the city has surrender…
O mighty one –
the Great Serpent, the heroic god,
you tore away from all the mountains.
…Thus extolling Ninurta, his feats, and his Brilliant Weapon, the poem also describes the location of the conflict ("the Mountainlands") and his principal enemy "The Great Serpent," leader of the Egyptian deities. The Sumerian poem identifies this adversary several times as Azag and once refers to him as Ashar, both well known epithets for Marduk, thereby establishing the two principal sons of Enlil and Enki – Ninurta and Marduk -as the leaders of the opposing camps in the Second Pyramid War.
…Ninurta had built a ship for himself, after his original one had been destroyed in an accident. It was called IM.DU.GUD, usually translated "Divine Storm Bird" but which literally means "That Which Like Heroic Storm Runs"; we know from various texts that its wingspan was about seventy five feet.
…Archaic drawings depicted it as a mechanically constructed "bird," with two wing surfaces supported by cross beams; an undercarriage reveals a series of round openings, perhaps air intakes for jetlike engines. This aircraft, from millennia ago, bears a remarkable resemblance not only to the early biplanes of the modern air age, but also an incredible likeness to the sketch made in 1497 by Leonardo da Vinci, depicting his concept of a man-powered flying machine.
…The Imdugud was the inspiration for Ninurta’s emblem – a heroic lion-headed bird rested on two lions or sometimes on two bulls. It was in this "crafted ship" – a manufactured vehicle – "that which in war destroys the princely abodes," that Ninurta soared into the skies during the battles of Second Pyramid War.
Ishtar, the goddess, was also involved in this war:
…In the clash of weapons, in the feats of heroship, Ishtar her arm did not hold back." As the two (leading) gods saw her, they shouted encouraging her: "Advance hither without stopping! Put your foot firmly on the Earth! In the mountains we await thee!"
…The partial verses suggest that after the intensified attack with Ishtar’s assistance, there arose a great cry and lamentation in the Enemyland. "Fear of Ninurta’s Brilliance encompassed the land," and their residents had to use substitutes instead of wheat and barley "to grind and mill as flour."
…Under this onslaught the Enemy forces kept retreating south. It was then that the war assumed its ferocious and vicious character. When Ninurta led the Enlilite gods in an attack on the heartland of Nergal’s African domain and his temple-city, Meslam. They scorched the earth and made the rivers run red with blood of the innocent bystanders – the men, women, and children of the Abzu.
…Those who survived the attack on the city escaped to the surrounding mountains. But Ninurta "with the Weapon That Smites threw fire upon the mountains; the godly Weapon of the Gods, whose Tooth is bitter, smote down the people."
…Overwhelmed by the merciless onslaught, Azag called on his followers to show no resistance…
…Ninurta took the lack of resistance as a sign of victory… but the claim of victory was premature. By his nonresistance tactics, Azag had escaped defeat. The capital city was indeed destroyed, but not so the leaders of the Enemy. Soberly, the text Lugal-e observed: "The scorpion of Kurt Ninurta did not annihilate." Instead, the enemy Gods retreated into the Great Pyramid, where "The Wise Craftsman" – Enki? Thoth? – raised up a protective wall "which the Brilliance could not match," a shield through which the death rays could not penetrate.
…Our knowledge of this final and most dramatic phase of the Second Pyramid War is augmented by texts from "the other side." Just as Ninurta’s followers composed hymns to him, so did the followers of Nergal. Some of the latter, which have also been discovered by archaeologists, were put together in Gebete und Hymnem on Nergal by J. Bullenrucher.
…Recalling the heroic feats of Nergal in this war, the text relates how, as the other gods found themselves hemmed in within the Giza complex, Nergal – "Lofty Dragon Beloved of Ekur" – "at night stole out" and, carrying awesome weapons and accompanied by his lieutenants, broke through the encirclement to reach the Great Pyramid (the Ekur). Reaching it at night, he entered through "the locked doors which by themselves can open." A roar of welcome greeted him as he entered:
Lord who by night stole out,
had come to the battle!
He cracks his whip, his weapons clank…
He who is welcome, his mighty is immense;
Like a dream at the doorstep he appeared.
Divine Nergal, the One Who Is Welcome:
Fight the enemy of Ekur,
lay hold on the Wild One from Nippur.
…As Nergal joined the defenders of the Great Pyramid ("the Formidable House Which Is Raised Like a Heap"), he strengthened his defenses through the various ray-emitting crystals (mineral "stones") positioned within the pyramid…
…With the pyramid’s defenses thus enhanced, Ninurta resorted to another tactic, he called upon Utu/Shamash to cut off the pyramid’s water supply by tampering with the "watery stream" that ran near its foundations…
…the besieged gods did their best to ward off their attackers… now one of the younger gods – Horus, we believe – trying to sneak out of the Great Pyramid disguised as a ram, was struck by Ninurta’s Brilliant Weapon and lost the sight of his eyes. An Olden God then cried to Ninharsag – reputed for her medical wonders – to save the young god’s life…
…It was then, responding to the "outcry," that Ninharsag decided to intervene to stop the fighting.
…The ninth tablet of the Lugal-e text begins with the statement of Ninharsag, her address to the Enlilite commander, her own son Ninurta, "the son of Enlil… the Legitimate Heir whom the sister-wife had brought forth."
To the House Where Cord-Measuring begins,
Where Asar his eyes to Anu raised,
I shall go.
The cord I will cut off,
for the sake of the warring gods.
…Her destination was the "House Where Cord-Measuring begins," the Great Pyramid!
…Ninurta was at first astounded by her decision to "enter alone the Enemyland"; but since her mind was made up, he provided her with "clothes that should make her unafraid" (of the radiation left by the beams?). As she neared the pyramid, she addressed Enki: "She shouts to him… she beseeches him." The exchanges are lost by the breaks in the tablet; but Enki agreed to surrender the pyramid to her:
The House that is like a heap,
that which I have as a pile raised up –
its mistress you may be.
…There was, however, a condition: The surrender was subject to a final resolution of the conflict until "the destiny-determining time" shall come. Promising to relay Enki’s conditions, Ninharsag went to address Enlil.
Mr. Sitchin now continues narrating from a text titled I Sing the Song of the Mother of the Gods, first reported by P. Dhorme in his study La Souveraine des Dieux. "It is a poetic text in praise of Ninmah ("the Great Lady") and her role as Mammi ("Mother of the Gods") on both sides of the battle lines.
…Asserting that she was acting with the approval of Anu, Ninharsag took the surrender offer of Enki to Enlil. She met him in the presence of Adad (while Ninurta remained at the battlefield).
…If she wants to bring about a cessation of hostilities, Adad said, let her call discussions on the basis that the Enlilites are about to win.
Adad and Enlil wanted Enki to attend the discussions as well; so they sent Ninharsag to fetch him. Assurance for his and his son’s safety was obtained.
…She conducted him (Enki) and the other defenders of the Great Pyramid to the Harsag, her abode. Ninurta and his warriors watched the Enkites depart. And the great and impregnable structure stood unoccupied, silent.

…Nowadays the visitor to the Great Pyramid finds its passages and chambers bare and empty, its complex inner construction apparently purposeless, its niches and nooks meaningless.
…It has been so ever since the first men had entered the pyramid. But it was not so when Ninurta entered it – circa 8670 B.C. according to our calculations. "Unto the radiant place," yielded by its defenders, Ninurta had entered, the Sumerian text relates. And what he had done after he had entered changed the Great Pyramid not only from within and without but also the course of human affairs.
…When, for the first time ever, Ninurta went into the "House which is like a Mountain," he must have wondered what he would find inside. Conceived by Enki/Ptah, planned by Ra/Marduk, built by Geb, equipped by Thoth, defended by Nergal, what mysteries of space guidance, what secret of impregnable defense did it hold?
Ninurta found inside the pyramid, all the features given along these pages, and of course many more are given in the actual books of Mr. Sitchin.
…Escorted by the Chief Mineralmaster, Ninurta inspected the array of "stones" and instruments. As he stopped by each one of them, he determined its destiny – to be smashed up and destroyed, to be taken away for display, or to be installed as instruments elsewhere. We know of these "destinies" and of the order in which Ninurta had stopped by the stones, from the text inscribed on tablets 10-13 of the epic poem Lugal-e. It is by following and correctly interpreting this text that the mystery of the purpose and functions of many features of the pyramid’s inner structure can be finally understood.
…Going up the Ascending Passage, Ninurta reached its junction with the imposing Grand Gallery and a Horizontal Passage. Ninurta followed the Horizontal Passage first, reaching a large chamber with a corbelled roof. Called "vulva" in the Ninharsag poem, this chamber’s axis lay exactly on the east-west center line of the pyramid. Its emission ("an outpouring which is like a lion whom no one dares attack") came from a stone fitted into a niche that was hollowed out in the east wall. It was the SHAM ("Destiny") Stone. Emitting a red radiance which Ninurta "saw in the darkness," it was the pulsating heart of the pyramid. But it was anathema to Ninurta, for during the battle, when he was aloft, this stone’s "strong power" was used "to grab to kill me, with a tracking which kills to seize me." He ordered it "pulled out… be taken apart… and to obliteration be destroyed."
Among other features, Ninurta encountered:
…Whereas in the narrow passages only "a dim green light glowed," the Gallery glittered in multicolored lights – "its vault is like a rainbow, the darkness ends there." The many-hued glows were emitted by twenty-seven pairs of diverse crystal stones that were evenly spaced along the whole length of each side of the Gallery… each crystal stone emitted a different radiance, giving the place its rainbow effect…
…Ninurta’s priority was the uppermost Grand Chamber and its pulsating stone… he reached the Antichamber of unique design… There three portcullises – "the bolt, the bar and the lock" of the Sumerian poem – elaborately fitted into grooves in the walls and floor, hermetically sealed off the uppermost Grand Chamber: "to foe it is not opened…" But now, by pulling some cords, the portcullises were raised, and Ninurta passed through.
…He was now in the pyramid’s most restricted ("sacred") chamber, from which the guiding "Net" (radar?) was "spread out" to "survey Heaven and Earth…" It responded to vibrations with bell-like resonance. The heart of the guidance unit was the GUG Stone ("Direction Determining")… Ninurta ordered this stone destroyed: "Then, by the fate-determining Ninurta, on that day was the Gug stone from its hollow taken out and smashed."
…To make sure no one would ever attempt to restore the "Direction Determining" function of the pyramid, Ninurta also ordered the three portcullises removed.
…As he walked down, Ninurta stopped by each on of them (mineral stones and crystals positioned atop the ramps in the Grand Gallery):
"Several of them Ninurta ordered to be crushed or pulverized; others, which could be used in the Mission Control Center, were ordered given to Shamash; and the rest were carried to Mesopotamia, to be displayed in Ninurta’s temple, in Nippur, and elsewhere as constant evidence of the great victory of the Enlilites over the Enki-gods.
…All this, Ninurta announced, he was doing not only for his sake but for future generations, to:
"Let the fear of thee" – the Great Pyramid – "be removed from my descendants; let their peace be ordained."
…Finally there was the Apex Stone of the Pyramid, the UL ("High As The Sky") Stone: "Let the mother’s offspring see it no more," he ordered. And, as the stone was sent crashing down, "let everyone distance himself," he shouted. The "Stones," which were "anathema" to Ninurta, were no more.
Ninurta returned home… at Nippur… his comrades urged him… may thy heart be at rest… may thy heart become appeased…
…The Second Pyramid War was over, but its ferocity and feats, and
Ninurta’s final victory at the pyramids of Giza, were remembered long thereafter in epic and song – and in a remarkable drawing on a cylinder seal, showing Ninurta’s Divine Bird within a victory wreath, soaring in triumph above the two great pyramids.
…And the Great Pyramid itself, bare and void without its apex stone, has been left standing as a mute witness of the defeat of its defenders.
