I hope the witch and her friends read this so they stop fooling themselves. The gods don't love you, traitors. The only thing you can expect when they return is judgement, and I will be right there, laughing away.
In the beginning, there was the Father of all, and naught but He existed. To Him is assigned the gender of Father, but the Igigi have no true gender. That was the first heresy of the Anunnaki.
The Father encompassed all of creation, was all of creation, and had within Him the genesis of all things that had been and would be. In some distant time, a measurement only given meaning when He was not, He had coalesced from the many to the One. Fission and fusion are His only purposes, and He wavers between them, sometimes Many and sometimes One.
In the course of His existence, when it came time to divide once more, He split into the two planes, the gross material and the finer spiritual realms, the desert and the Utopia, the wasteland and the Eden. This we will call the second Genesis, though it is believed the Father has divided and coalesced many times. Because with each division His fragmented children are not privy to what has gone before, we can only assume His purpose. Many assume this division is for the evolution of new thoughts and forms; some few believe it is because the Father grows lonely and so divides to create separate selves with whom His many divisions can interact.
In the spiritual realms, energy is plentiful, while in the base material planes, it is bound to matter and therefore scarce. When first these two planes came into being, many newborn spirits were lost to this void of energy, becoming forever bound to the quagmire of the grosser plane. As the two planes moved apart, stronger Igigi broke free of the grosser realm to cleave to the spiritual plane, but many were lost forever.
It soon became apparent that the two realms would cross paths again and again. With each pass, young souls were drawn to the material plane to become enmeshed in its heavy solidity, despite the will of older, more experienced souls that the material planes should be avoided. It was observed that the entrapped Igigi did eventually adjust to the material planes, investing their energy in the gross forms and miraculously generating more energy as these forms decayed and new ones were taken. Some Igigi took advantage of this energy to explore, while others chose to abuse the helpless Igigi who had lost their way and their memories in the grosser realms. To prevent these abuses, guardians were put in place.
Tiawath, mother of chaos, and her child Apsu, the deep, took dominion over the material realm, ministering to the needs of the young Igigi. In the course of time, the two realms parted once more and Tiawath and Apsu remained in the material realms. When next the two realms merged, the heresy of co-creation had occurred. Tiawath and Apsu had joined to make new life between them, a concept unknown in the spiritual realm. They taught their offspring, the Anunnaki, to do the same. From this abhorrent life, the material realm was nearly as full of energy as the spiritual plane.
The Igigi descended upon the material plane in delight, using the energy the Anunnaki had amassed as if in their own realm, taking on lighter material forms of a similar likeness where the Anunnaki each wore a form of his or her own choosing. There were quarrels between the Igigi and elder Anunnaki as the Igigi attempted to assert their rightful dominance over the less evolved Anunnaki. In their time of separation, the Anunnaki had grown so very different from the Igigi that most saw them as nothing more than a degenerate Darkling race. Even Apsu and Tiawath had grown strange and terrifying to the Igigi.
Tiawath rose from her slumbers, empowered by her office and the faith of the Anunnaki to defend them. She ordered the Igigi to stop in their depredations. This refusal to submit was the second heresy of Tiawath and her followers. By the power and office they had invested in her, the Igigi were forced to withdraw to discuss what might be done. The Igigi had bestowed upon the lady of chaos the Dup Shimati to defend the Anunnaki and could not defy her else break their own edicts.
Instead, some made merry, corrupting the young Anunnaki with knowledge which would consume their resources all the faster, knowing Tiawath or Apsu would catch wind of the ruse and be moved to anger. It was Apsu who was first to rebel. He and his eldest child Mummu made threats of violence against the Igigi. They considered the actions of the Igigi to be little more than noise and chaos, when the Igigi could plainly see that chaos was the hallmark of the material realms and its diverse forms. Apsu and Mummu threatened to destroy the bodies the Igigi had fashioned and weave the energy of the material realms into a barrier that would not be worth crossing for the energy it would cost the Igigi in the effort.
For a moment only, the Igigi managed to still the procession of time. Ea descended on the sleeping Apsu and Mummu and prepared to strike with the righteous wrath of the Igigi elders. But Mummu through some strange quirk of being first born of his parent’s union was able to move against the Igigi. He defied the magic of the Igigi and fought with Ea. Though the Igigi champion broke him in every bone and joint, Mummu fought on to protect his father until the spell which had held the material world between one breath and the next failed. Then Apsu woke; he saw that Ea had nearly erased his son from existence. He struck at Ea, and in the chaos, the nearly unmade one escaped. Ea killed Apsu, and to ensure that he could not reincarnate, he used his bones to make a palace, binding his soul to the place.
The igigi, taking a lesson from the Anunnaki, joined to create a being who would be as their champion against the remaining guardian, a master rather than protector, who would put the Anunnaki in their place. Thus Ba‘al Merodach was begotten and born on the remnant of Apsu by Ea, making him the most powerful of the Anunnaki aside from the wounded Mummu.
The other sons of Apsu and Tiawath roused their mother once more from her slumbers and stirred her to anger at the treachery of the Igigi. She called to her all the Anunnaki and even the Igigi who would stand against Ea and his offspring, and many Igigi did fall from grace and join the treacherous Anunnaki in their rebellion. Just as the Igigi had created a champion, so too did Tiawath create Kingu, who would stand in Apsu’s place.
To distract and delay her, the Igigi sent messengers to Tiawath, but her rage only grew as she demanded the destruction of Ea, who she claimed had unlawfully destroyed her husband and son. Though they did not yet believe him fit, the Igigi gave consent that Merodach should join battle with the army of the chaos dragon. Merodach was a wily Anunnaki however. He demanded that the Igigi further endow him with their power so that he might fight against Tiawath herself. And the Igigi endowed him with such power as only the Igigi had formerly held outside the material realm.
With his weapons and power, Merodach went to the plains of Tiawath where she had amassed her army; where she and the traitor Igigi taught the young Anunnaki how to make war in Eden. Merodach sought out Kingu, who was weak and flawed through his mother's grief. Merodach caused him to falter before the assembled hosts, and Tiawath rose from her forested sty, young Anunnaki clinging to her like Darkling parasites from the furthest edges of creation. She spoke, casting insults at Merodach and demanding he return to the Igigi with her bilious words.
In turn, Marduk baited Tiawath with knowledge of his mother, Apsu, and the death of Tiawath’s first born child, Mummu. The earth rumbled and broke at her rage. It was then conceived by the Igigi that she had become so invested in the material realm that she had become one with it. Herein lay the third heresy of Tiawath. Then the Igigi knew that her destruction was just. She had become anathema for assuming the place of the unnamed Father of us all. No single Igigi should have such dominion until the Father consumes us and becomes whole once more.
Before the vile Thing could weave her Anunnaki magics over our champion, the Ba’al cast his net over her and sent a violent wind into her face. Merodach grasped his great spear, the Abubu, and split up her belly, destroying her power of generation. He pierced her heart, pinning her and spilling her vril into the earth.
Her allies scattered with terror, but were easily caught up by Ba’al Merodach. He crippled them so that they might not escape the bonds of the flesh they wore to hide in some dark hole. The Eleven abominations which Tiawath's cohort had created were bound and made to slumber, and Merodach swallowed the vril of the god Kingu so that he was as an empty shell which yet breathed. Merodach took the Dup Shimati, the emblem of Tiawath’s sovereignty, and pressed it with his own seal and placed it on his own brow, taking the dominion over material plane.
His enemies subdued, Merodach turned back to the gross body of Tiawath. She was too powerful, too enmeshed in the material plane; she was the life of the material plane and the reason the energy upon which the Igigi depended had risen to such levels. Tiawath squirmed on his spear still, though she was fixed firmly to the earth. The Ba’al removed her eyes that she might be blinded from the truth through any future lifetimes and crushed her skull that her mind should be lost no matter if she should reincarnate. He slit open the channels of her vril and drank what remained of her life, though most of it had been lost to the earth itself. The Ba’al then paused and examined the now still body. He separated hair from flesh and took the skin as a trophy, returning to the palace of Ea. Measuring the dimensions of Apsu, he created his own palace, E-Sharra, from the skin of Tiawath.
The Igigi celebrated and did their champion honor, but still he was not done. He honored those Igigi who had given the most of their power to him, creating the moon, planets, and stars, before giving back to his dearest fathers their power and dominion over his creations. He then attempted to make a new thing, “man,” by spilling his own seed into the bloody clay of Mother Tiawath. At the end of his efforts, such servile and low beasts were created as no Igigi or Anunnaki had ever seen. Satisfied, Merodach withdrew to create his final miracle, the sun. At its first dawning however, most of his creations died, and the rest descended into the dark recesses of the Mother to hide from his glory in shame.
Merodach then spoke unto Ea, "I would create man in service to the gods so that we might be set free of the burden of cultivating the energy of this plane."
“The Anunnaki are gross abominations of myriad form. They should be remade in the form of the Igigi so that we might put the stamp of our supremacy on them for all time,” Ea answered. "Let one brother Igigi be given, let him suffer destruction that men may be fashioned. Let the great spirits be assembled and let one be chosen from among them.”
A dispute then broke out between Merodach and the gods, but Merodach said unto them, "Verily, I have taken your power unto myself, but it is easily restored in the resting place of the Igigi. In the end, I have taken nothing. Some there were who betrayed our cause and joined Tiawath in her revolt. Let he who created the most strife be given as sacrifice. The axe will do away with his sin."
And the Igigi who had stood with Tiawath and the Anunnaki shivered and looked at one another. "It was Kingu who created the strife and incited Tiawath to revolt against thee."
The insensate Kingu was bound in fetters, but it was not enough. Kingu had been greatly diminished by Merodach already. A second sacrifice was demanded, and Mummu's brother Dugga was chosen, second born of Tiawath and Apsu. Both were brought before Ea in the place of sacrifice, Uzu-mu-a, the bond of heaven and earth where the two planes converge first and last every Age. From their Vril mixed with the clay of the mother, the Igigi fashioned mankind for their service and were set free.
Yet still the new men were empty vessels, devoid of discernment. It would take millennia of care and teaching to make them suitable to serve the Igigi through toil and sacrifice. Merodach passed judgment on the remaining Anunnaki and rebel Igigi, his enemies. To redeem them, he pressed their souls into the bodies of the men to do that work which pleased the Igigi not. It is through their service and worship of the Igigi that they might be redeemed. Though the first men were mighty, Merodach made them flawed so that through successive generations, human kind would forever be denied the power to defy their masters.
Those Anunnaki and Igigi who stood by and refused to take either side in the war were cast down also and barred from re-entry into the realm of the Igigi. They were given the task of teaching the new men how to live under the yoke of their sin.
