Disclosing Knowledge from the Sumerian Tablets

Sumer is modern day Iraq, loosely translated Sumer stands for “land of the civilized kings” or “native land”. The Sumerians were highly evolved for their time and are known for starting the first civilization and building the first settlements worthy of being called cities.

But apart from the ability to create cities the discovery of the 5,000 year old tablets with well detailed characters holds very interesting clues to the history of man and also insights into the Sumerian culture and beliefs.

The Sumerian Tablets hold a diversity of information, from religious texts, poetry, bills, rations issued monthly and even the allocation of beer. Like the Egyptians the Sumerians used Cuneiform, but the older tablets lacked grammar making it a tough job to translate them.

Similarities in the Sumerian Tablets and the Bible

The Eridu Genesis is from a fragmented tablet excavated in Nippur, its also the earliest record of the Sumerian Creation and flood. The flood is similar to the bibles story of Noah and his Ark, complete with the building of the Ark, the pairs of animals and of course the flood.

Where the tablet picks up, the gods An, Enlil, Enki and Ninhursanga create the black-headed people and create comfortable conditions for the animals to live and procreate. Then kingship descends from heaven and the first cities are founded: Eridu, Bad-tibira, Larsa, Sippar, and Shuruppak.

After a missing section in the tablet, we learn that the gods have decided not to save mankind from an impending flood. Zi-ud-sura, the king and gudug priest, learns of this. In the later Akkadian version, Ea, or Enki in Sumerian, the god of the waters, warns the hero and gives him instructions for the ark. This is missing in the Sumerian fragment, but a mention of Enki taking counsel with himself suggests that this is Enki’s role in the Sumerian version as well.

When the tablet resumes it is describing the flood. A terrible storm rocks the huge boat for seven days and seven nights, then Utu (the Sun god) appears and Zi-ud-sura creates an opening in the boat, prostrates himself, and sacrifices oxen and sheep.

After another break the text resumes: the flood is apparently over, the animals disembark and Zi-ud-sura prostrates himself before An (sky-god) and Enlil (chief of the gods), who give him eternal life and take him to dwell in Dilmun for “preserving the animals and the seed of mankind”.

Taken from the Sumerian creation myth.

Apart from the similarities to the story of Noah and his ark, there seem to be even more similarities between the Sumerian text and the Bible, but I’m going to move on to another interesting revelation by the Sumerian Tablets..

The Creation of Man According to the Sumerian Texts

Here’s a nice video taken from Ancient Aliens, a series on the history channel. Its nice to see a variety of people speaking about creation from the terms of the Sumerian texts.

It does touch upon the similarities in the Bible and the Sumerian texts, although it doesn’t dig too deep it gives a good overview and has a couple of interesting views from some prominent researches such as, Erich von Däniken, Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, David Childress and more.

Way Ahead of their Time

How did the Sumerians have such in depth info on such a wide range of topics? The ability to write and build cities. I’m not sure if this is intelligence but the Sumerians even documented the process of making Beer!

Apart from this, I managed to put two things together, during the invasion of Persia by the Muslims the Irani community that never converted to Islam, chose to leave modern day Iran and seek refuge elsewhere. A lot of them came to India, their symbol the Faravahar is identical to the Sumerian God of the sky.

If you browse through the resources below you will find a lot of the Sumerians scriptures have found its way into the Bible, if you yourself are a truth seeker, its very interesting how it got there and is equally important.

For those of you who are interested in a scientific and scholarly argument for ancient extra terrestrial visits to our Earth. Zecharia Sitchin the author of The Earth Chronicles series of books who claims the Sumerian clay tablets reveal that gods from another planet (Nibiru, which orbits our Sun every 3,600 years) arrived on Earth some 450,000 years ago.

And while this was going on what was western civilization doing? Nothing note worthy. But the west calls Arabs uncivilized and backward.
