I'm not one to call crap on beliefs. Overly specific predictions are another matter especially when produced after the fact and are rightfully looked at skeptically.
These days Tommy Jr. explains to visitors at his home — as the elders explained to the Dalai Lama — that Hopi warnings are not a prophecy, but predictions based on knowledge of human nature and the history of previous worlds destroyed by hubris. It’s an intuition based on centuries of careful observation of nature and people.
The White people will build villages of stone, so large that you can not walk through them in a day. The People (Hopi) that go to live in these villages will go to sleep. (Lose their connection with Earth, and thus their spirituality.) These People will be lost to us. When the gourds of ashes are dropped by Eagle, the stone villages will become tombs. The third Shaking will tell the People to follow the animals. We will survive. We will survive. The 4th cycle will be at end.

You got it.
On topic, Meanwhile I'm still flicking through, turning over, the Sumerian tablets. Might take me a while. Not as easy as wikipedia.
Not hard to look up Sumerian gods without referring to the tablet index and its translations.

Please tell me he's not going by what Sitchin said. Or can anyone point out the Sumerian "books" he's talking about?
Unless we have someone who can read minds in the thread you would have to ask him to point out the Sumerian "books" he's talking about. I am sure you are aware of the Sumerian creation myth. That would be my guess.
Edit: Like I said I was sure you were aware.
You tell it better than Wikipedia too
The ancient Sumerians didn't have books. Or movable type, Or paper, or even inks. The technological pinnacle of their civilization was the mud brick and a base sixty number system that was damn near impossible to do math in.
Again Phage is being far too subtle.
They used clay tablets for writing in a similar way that we used PDA's back in the 2000's using a stylus. From tablets recovered from abandoned cities, they logged everything from astronomical events, to budgets and legal judgements.
Some of those astronomical data includes observations of meteorite impacts which are useable today.
The base 60 system allowed day-to-day use of mathematics without having to use fractions or irrational numbers. We've adapted it for time keeping (hours/minutes/seconds) and GPS coordinates (degrees, minutes seconds).

I can’t get the damn tablets to sit right on my book shelf, never mind trying to read in bed!
On the subject, heard the suggestion we are the most out of place species on the planet and it keeps me up at night wondering. Also keeps my mind open to any possibility. I have a strong feeling the Hopi Elders have more information than any wiki.
