Thousands of years ago, Earth was inhabited by the Annunaki, a powerful race of giants who constructed the Pyramids and the Sphinx of Egypt, Stonehenge in Great Britain, the Mayan and Aztec pyramids in Mexico and Central America, the monuments of the Inca in South America, the underwater pyramids off Japan, Kahokia in the United States, etc.

The Annunaki were technologically-advanced, far beyond present-day mankind and inhabited Earth during the Ice Ages. These giants were the source of all of our ancient mythologies and legends including Greek, Roman, Babylonian, Egyptian, Native American, Aztec, Mayan, Japanese, and Chinese mythologies, the legend of the lost city of Atlantis, and giant stories including Jack and the Beanstalk, Paul Bunyan, John Henry, and other stories.

They were also the source of our popular religious stories.

The Annunaki created us, for reasons unknown. These aliens ruled Earth for thousands of years. The Annunaki taught us a lot, and supplied us with their advanced technology, and they genetically-engineered many fearsome creatures which had extraordinary powers and which our ancient ancestors feared. From these creatures came mythical creatures and figures such as gargoyles, dragons, Medusa, witches, the Minotaur, werewolves, ghosts, sea serpents, and Bigfoot.

It was a golden age during the rule of the Annunaki, during which there was peace, prosperity, and enlightenment. This age, now forgotten by modern humans, is where the theory known as the Ancient Astronaut Theory, which is not a theory at all, but fact.

Then, fifteen-thousand years ago, the Annunaki left. The reason they left is unknown.

In 2019, the Annunaki return. They tell us that they've been to Earth before and that they made contact with our ancient ancestors and gave them their advanced technology, and that they have returned. They offer us friendship and, in exchange for precious metals and other resources that they need, they will give us their advanced technology.

Mankind is eager to help the Annunaki. But strange things begin to happen. People all over the world disappear. The Annunaki set up bases in Tiahuanaco, Mexico, Mexico City, Mexico, the ancient Mayan cities of southern Mexico, in Cuzco, Peru, in Bolivia, Greece, Egypt, Israel, Iraq, India, and other areas where ancient civilizations once flourished. The religions of these ancient civilizations are revived and bizarre religious cults spring up around the world.

Annunaki political and military leaders take top positions in the governments of the world and in NATO, the European Union, the United Nations, and other world organizations, and in the religions of the world. Sightings of mythical creatures occur and attacks by these creatures are reported all over the world. Technology such as the Nazi Bell and other strange technologies are reported to be used.

As a result, some people question the Annunaki presence on our planet and wonder why these giant extraterrestrials with science and technology that goes beyond our imagination and who possess strange godlike powers are here. Do they have some sort of sinister motive?

All over the world, ordinary people come across evidence that the Annunaki may not be what they seem to be and must go on the run as they are pursued by the police, the military, intelligence agencies, the Peacekeepers, humans who collaborate with the Annunaki, and Annunaki warriors. Will everyone come together to form a resistance movement or will everyone act on their own? That will depend on us.
