some believe the sumerian kings list is the same thing as the list of the ages and names of descendants of adam down to noah. for example here's the sumerian kings list:
Alulim 8 sars (28,800 years)
Alalngar 10 sars (36,000 years)
"Then Eridug fell and the kingship was taken to Bad-tibira."
En-men-lu-ana 12 sars (43,200 years)
En-men-gal-ana 8 sars (28,800 years)
Dumuzid, the Shepherd "the shepherd" 10 sars (36,000 years)
"Then Bad-tibira fell and the kingship was taken to Larag."
En-sipad-zid-ana 8 sars (28,800 years)
"Then Larag fell and the kingship was taken to Zimbir."
En-men-dur-ana 5 sars and 5 ners (21,000 years)
"Then Zimbir fell and the kingship was taken to Shuruppag."
Ubara-Tutu 5 sars and 1 ner (18,600 years)
the theory arose that the babylonian historian, berosuss, fudged the dates to make it appear as if sumer had the greatest antiquity, while in a contest of "who has the most antiquity" with the egyptian historian, manetho (who apparently listed the pharaohs, end to end, giving the illusion that they all ruled individually, when evidence suggests that at times, one ruled lower egypt and one ruled upper egypt). and the dates are actually the same as the ones in the bible for adam's descendants. much theory and conjecture come from this portion of history (pre flood, et.al, ante-diluvian).
here's the biblical version
Adam 930 years
Seth 1042 years
Enosh 1140 years
Kenan 1235 years
Mahalalel 1290 years
Jared 1422 years
Enoch vanished at age 365 years
Methuselah 1656 years
Lamech 1650 years
Noah 2005 years
this would essentially mean that adam was alulim or his counterpart, at the very least.
so on and so on, down the lists, to noah who would be contemporary with the sumerian kings list " ubara-tutu "

Yes go on, this is interesting stuff.
When Enki's "ziggurat" first came here, it emerged from the abyss, the underworld called the Abzu or Apsu, and landed in what was to become Sumer. He and his compadres then set about building ancient Sumer. This event is detailed briefly in Genesis 6:4 of the bible, the Book of Enoch and in Enki and the World Order.
What has so many confused is how it could come up from down. The answer is that the down it came from was a stargate.
