If that were the only reference to reptilian beings in ancient texts
it could easily be dismissed, but the stories of such creatures date
back to the earliest human writings, those of Sumer (meaning "land of
the guardians"), Babylon (meaning "gate of the gods"), and other
civilizations of ancient Mesopotamia. Among the thousands of clay
tablets that have been recovered and translated dating from the
earliest recorded history, are documents that record events dating
back 240,000 years. One of these, the "Sumerian King List," tells the
story of the god, An, chief god of an extraterrestrial race called the
Annunaki, and his sons, Enki and Enlil. It is clear from the texts and
the illustrations left by the Sumerians that at least some of these
"gods," including Enki (also known as EA), were reptilian in
appearance. It is Enki who gave the first people the fruit of the tree
of knowledge and who later saved humanity by warning a Noah-like figure
of the great flood.
These stories are so similar to the Old Testament that one might
conclude that the Old Testament authors borrowed heavily from them. In reality, the Sumerians were recording their own separate experiences with the same Repto Sapien overlords. In the Sumerian tale, Enki is given the task of creating a worker force to help the Annunaki till the soil and mine the ore for which they came to earth. This he does through considerable trial and error, in the process creating strange creatures. The legend implies that Enki possessed a highly advanced technology that included the capability of genetically altering the indigenous species.
Using a mysterious process to create a clay-like substance, he was able to "bind upon it the image of the gods," indicating that Enki used Annunaki genes to create a hybrid species. It also implies that some of the early humans
may have had a reptilian appearance.
