Dating to the fifth millennium BC, Sumerian civilization emerged seemingly out of nowhere, with no predecessor, in the land that is now southern Iraq. It has been known as Mesopotamia, Babylon, and Akkadia, but the Sumerians were the first culture to inhabit the land. We attribute to the Sumerians over 100 of the firsts needed for an advanced civilization. From the wheel to the first known form of writing called "cuneiform", the Sumerians also divided the heavens into 12 parts, assigning each section of the sky a symbol. They were the first civilization to practice organized agriculture, the use of a specialized labor force, and much more.
It’s clear that a vast body of knowledge emanated from the Sumerian people, but where did they learn these things? In the early 1900s, British archeologists began excavations in the ancient Sumerian city of Ur. They discovered thousands of clay tablets, which detailed a time when the Sumerian people lived amongst their gods, which they called the "Anunnaki". They left many wall carvings showing their interaction with these beings, depicting them with wings or coming down from heaven on winged disks. Amazingly, the tablets detail not only what the planets look like from above, but the distance between the planets in our solar system, including Pluto, which was not discovered until 1930. They also detail a planet called "Nibiru”, the planet from which they came, the planet of the gods. It is now clear that many biblical tales have a much earlier version recorded in stone, still preserved to this day from the Sumerian legacy.
From the concept of Angels, the original story of the flood, to the true story of Adam and Eve, what the clay tablets reveal about the human race is utterly astounding. Learn of a time when there were "Giants upon the earth" and see the actual evidence and artifacts from a time when man lived amongst his living gods!
