SuperConsciousness Magazine spoke with Jason Martell about the apparent genetic connection between the Anunnaki and human beings referenced in the ancient Sumerian tablets and reliefs.
SC: What was your journey? What were some of the questions that pressed you to seek information about the connection between the human species and offworld civilization?
JM: Being raised as a Christian, initially all of the information for questions I had about ‘where did we come from’, was always given to me with a religious overtone specific to the Bible. So, to the degree that I was interested in that as a young child, nothing resonated with me in a way that I could actually understand and process, until later in life when I started to become deeply interested in the question, “Where do we really come from?”
I started by looking at historical evidence, and particularly the academic explanation for ‘where do we come from’, and this led me to researching several ancient cultures, specifically the Sumerian culture, today’s modern day Iraq. There I found many parallels to the Biblical tales I had learned as a child, giants upon the earth, the flood, the tablets, the Garden of Eden, similar stories reflected in Sumerian derivatives that were much older than the Bible.
From those academic perspectives of religious views, another area emerged, the UFO information – that the human race has had interactions with beings that didn’t come from Earth. The Sumerian evidence brought a new variable to light, which was that these beings that come from heaven actually were here, brought their technology and contributed genetic information to the human gene pool.
I can now see a clear parallel between many ancient cultures whose writings stated that they were visited by gods, and what’s interesting is that these gods have the same physical properties and characteristics of what we hear today of alien abduction, or UFOs.
The texts clearly state that the Anunnaki created us as workers for a specific purpose, which was to mine gold. There are many pieces of Sumerian evidence that support that idea.
SC: Your investigation lead you to agree that we, the human species, are genetically tied to alien races, specifically the Anunnaki which is documented in Zecharia Sitchin’s research and books – that we’re genetically created from some combination of their genes and earth’s pre-existing life forms. Have you found that this knowledge satisfies your questions about where we come from?
JM: Based upon what I’ve learned so far in my research, there hasn’t been any other candidate that I can give a name to, outside of Anunnaki, that crosses the barriers of science, as well as religion, to give a more clear and accurate depiction of how, more than likely, human beings were created.
In the context of the Anunnaki and Sitchin’s work, it’s very possible that there are much older records of humanity’s origins. For instance, there are still some things that can’t be fully answered like why are there different races. And there could be some other explanation for how humans show up on the scene, but from what I have studied, I haven’t found anything that presents a more logical scenario.
It could be also that being raised as a Christian, again, much of the information that I find coming from the Sumerian texts that speak about the Anunnaki, very accurately reflects the Biblical tales, but with actual facts and evidence and not so much of the mythological overtone.
This study has given me a perspective of viewing the Christian teachings from a different perspective because now I don’t look at those texts as speaking about a ‘one and only’ God. I see them speaking about a time when there were beings on Earth that we humans thought of as gods, not necessarily the one and only God. I don’t think most Christians can take that leap very easily without making some kind of personal sacrifices in their understanding or their view of Christianity as a whole.
SC: One of the most significant of Sitchin’s translations of the Sumerian tablets and other texts is specific to the story that the human race was created as a slave race, specifically genetically engineered to mine elements from the earth for the benefit of the Anunnaki to take back to their home planet. Have you studied the implications and seen the evidence for that in our societies, our societal structures and behavior?
JM: Sure. The texts clearly state that the Anunnaki created us for a specific purpose, which was to mine gold. There are many pieces of Sumerian evidence that support that idea. For one, every human being on Earth seems to be very much attracted to gold. The whole idea of holding a bar of gold in your hand, people look at it and they get excited.
Every other species on this planet has a neurological network in the brain that they fully utilize: All other species use all of their synapses. Human beings are the only ones that have a genetic partition on their brain where we’re only using up to ten percent of the brain.
So, the other thing that’s really interesting is the fact that every other species on this planet has a neurological network in the brain that they fully utilize: All other species use all of their synapses. Human beings are the only ones that have a genetic partition on their brain where we’re only using up to ten percent of the brain. No one can answer that except put into the context of the Anunnaki creating us, just like the Bible says, in their image and after their likeness. We have many of the same attitudes and understandings and anger and feelings the Anunnaki probably possessed.
Another of the implications are, if we look at us as being a warring society, where does this need to constantly have wars come from? I think a lot of these pieces of information when put together into a different light, is more than likely that spiritually as well as technologically advanced beings have imparted wisdom to us. And, unfortunately over the years that knowledge about our past has been misconstrued as mythology rather than events that actually took place.
It’s interesting to note that today, in most churches and in most religions, there’s idol worship, some type of a statue or a symbol that is given prominence in the place of “god”, and the people bow to that, or give their favors to this.
What I have learned from my research is that the Anunnaki were here on Earth at one point, a designated human high priest would work with the Anunnaki. The priest would listen to their decrees and sacred information, or a scribe, sitting with the high priest, would write all of this down. And so the priests would have sacred knowledge that was only passed on by those priests that the Anunnaki taught. We still use that very same [educational] model today.
It was important information that when we were receiving from them, but then all of a sudden, the Anunnaki left earth. The high priests were left in a difficult position of people asking them for the laws and the new information from our gods, but they no longer had access to the gods. So, instead, what they did was they created statues of the various different types of gods and started worshipping these statues in place of the actual beings, because that’s all they could do. And that process also still continues on to today.

SC: So, in terms of ‘the gods’ imparting technology and more advanced knowledge to help our species grow up and mature, and to help us develop ourselves out of the partitioned brain, how do you view the diversity of reports about aliens and their technology?
JM: There are probably many different types of life forms that have interacted with us. Based on all that has been reported, it seems that certain races do certain things. For instance the grays, or the smaller aliens that have large heads and big eyes, they seem to carry out the function of doing things like abducting and taking samples to study the human species like a genetic checkup. If we look at how humans track and treat animals, it doesn’t seem so odd to think that if humans are something of interest to other civilizations, that a species more advanced would want to carry out such tests, and to them that would seem just fine.
But I want to put a caveat on that: If we accept the idea that the Anunnaki created us in their image and after their likeness, given some genetic manipulation, more than likely they have the ability to do genetic manipulation on other races as well. We’ve heard throughout time that there’s the watchers of human beings, a term that could be applied to possibly another race, for instance the grays, that were genetically engineered, to do a specific purpose, which was to overlook the Anunnaki’s grand experiment here on Earth. Their function might be to relay genetic and medical data back to them about our current status. So, one theory is that some of the things related to alien abduction could be interpreted that they’re just basically collecting information and feeding that to the Anunnaki.
I found many parallels to the Biblical tales I had learned as a child, giants upon the earth, the flood, the tablets, the Garden of Eden, similar stories reflected in Sumerian derivatives that were much older than the Bible.
My interest is definitely filling in the gap that I have always felt, that there’s something beyond humanity.
You know, I have four pets. I have an iguana, a couple of turtles, and a bird. And I love my pets, and I treat them well: I spoil them. They get a lot of love from me and they get a lot of food, and they’re always taken care of. And sometimes when I’m not at home, I’m gone for eight hours, they still know that I’m there and that I’ve got their back. I’m going to come home and give them their food and be there for them.
Well, humanity seems to have lost the connection with something higher than us that all of our ancestors talk about. And I think it would be a very interesting, eye-opening experience for human beings to realize that we’re not alone, and that we have always been taken care of, and there’s beings larger than us watching over us. And it sounds like our ancient ancestors were aware of that, and went to great lengths in writing out their knowledge at that time, to explain to us the things that they were seeing by depicting UFOs, by depicting beings coming down from the heavens.
They didn’t understand the technology being used, but they obviously saw something taking place that is exactly in alignment with what we’re missing today, which is something larger than us that tells us, hey, it really is a much bigger picture than you just live and die and you’re gone. Our reality is extremely interesting, and I think, it would be a dramatic, eye-opening event to experience more intelligent beings than humans, and have them interact with us.
