Can you please add your version of the translated texts so I can get the real story. If even some of his translated words are accurate would that not suggest that a lot of his translated words are correct, given the possibility for a few mistakes.


Give this book a try. It's a good starting point for anyone looking to learn about Sumer.

A lot of his translated words are accurate. But he wasn't the translator. He never claimed to be able to translate cuneiform, as far as I can tell.
He took his "translations" from other people (like Kramer) and inserted a few word changes (such as substituting "rocket" for "SHU.MU," which in Hebrew is "shem.")
You can read about that one at Heiser's site.
If you want to read Sitchin's sources, you could do worse than to nose around at Sacred Texts. Link

You can read many works not listed at Sacred Texts at the ECTSL website. The site is somewhat difficult to navigate from the home page. Hope this link helps: link.

Actually the sites I read this stuff on were very similar to the ones you posted, the ones I went to were not direct Sitchens writings but others also, the point I'm trying to make is that yes there are differences in various writings where many people substituted words that would not have been available then to something that we would understand like the Hindu texts using the word vimanas where as we might use the term flying craft or spaceship, yes there might be slight differences like that, but the main jist of the stories have to be translated using a little creativity for the story to make sense. There are various dialects of language where one word can have a completely different meaning through the course of one generation, now imagine the course of a few generations. So in that respect we kind of have to be forgiving of some authors using creative license.

Apparently you didn't bother to discover the actual translation of the word SHU.MU or shem.

Both are used multiple times in mutlitudes of texts, yet we must ignore all the available context?
Also, perhaps you are unaware that when the Akkadians (Sargon I) consolidated Sumer into the Akkadian Empire, they kept cuneiform and used it themselves. They left behind lexicons and dictionaries (yes, dictionaries) for Akkadian/Sumerian translation for use by their scribes and priests. Since Akkadian is a Semitic language, meaning we can read it, there's really no question but that Sitchin made the whole thing up out of thin air.

Kazem Finjan: "Perhaps many of the people of the Dhi Qar Governorate do not know that the first airport to be built on planet Earth, 5,000 years ago, before the Christian era, was built here, in Dhi Qar. If you do not believe me, read the book of the great historian Zecharia Sitchin, who was an expert on Sumerian studies, read the books of Samuel Kramer, or the book written by H.G. Wells (sic) about this: History Begins from Sumer. He talked about the first airport built on the planet, which was in this place.

Source


I suggest everyone follow his advice here and read the book he's referencing. Please quote the parts about Sumerian spaceports that Kramer wrote about.

Harte


I've read Kramer and still have at least one of his books. There was no mention of anything resembling airports or spaceports in anything I've read. The fact that just before citing Kramer, this guy refers to Sitchin as an 'Expert on Sumerian studies' calls everything else he says into question. I have to question whether this cat is trolling or truly delusional.



Yup so did I , I know it was a long time ago but i'd remember if came across what would have been the most interesting passage.
And for what's it's worth he sure gave the Ancient Aliens People a boost given the fact that he is a high official lets place bets on when he will show up in an up coming episode.

In looking at the pictures....it seems like some straight lines go straight across some different elevations...I just don't see that grid as realistic. Maybe Ill have to look at it myself through google earth...
Besides....I think the best explanation on why we don't actually see UFO's is the theory that scientific gains vastly outpace political ones advanced civilizations destroy themselves with their new toys.
It makes a lot of sense and we certainly see it played out in our world. I know..using us as a reference for the behavior of some potentially powerful race is a bad idea or something like that....but what else can we go on?
