Go To

In ancient times, we worshiped them as gods, building monuments to honor them, even beseeching them to return. Perhaps the Anunnaki knew we wouldn’t view them as gods upon their return — knew that we had advanced too far and could never see them the same way again. Maybe that’s why they came instead as conquerors. The Reptilians paved the way for them, ensuring that there would be only minimal resistance.
And here we are. Utterly subservient to the Anunnaki, serving their every whim. Enslaved. They live as kings. No, they live as gods, no matter what we think. We have to treat them like gods — we have no choice.
