Some of you who are unfamiliar with or who are new to the Ancient Astronaut Hypothesis, may be wondering about its relevance to the Egyptian god Thoth and the Emerald Tablets. Primarily through the works of Zecharia Sitchin and other scholars researching the ancient Sumerian, Babylonian and Akkadian texts, a connection has been proposed between the pantheons of Sumerian gods and the Egyptian gods. Actually, it is more than a connection, many of the gods are one and the same. One of the primary tenets of the Ancient Astronaut Hypothesis is that the Sumerian gods were real beings and not just part of a mythological construct of the earliest known civilization. As such, to find these gods’ equivalencies in other cultures and civilizations is of paramount importance. Such is the case Thoth.
