I sometimes thnk that the ancient built pyramids and observed the 'heavens' to possibly protect themselves against 'another' catacalysm or deluge or to mark the point in time that it happened and to make sure that future generations will learn the truth of the ancients and earth and to predict the next cycle or celestial event.
Types of think tanks
Think tanks represent a variety of ideological perspectives. Some think tanks, such as the Heritage Foundation, are clearly aligned with conservative causes. Others, especially those focused on social and environmental reforms, such as the Tellus Institute, are viewed as clearly liberal. Still others, such as the Cato Institute, promote libertarian social and economic reforms.
A new trend, resulting from globalization, is collaboration between think tanks across continents. For instance, the Brookings Institution, Washington DC, collaborates with Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Qatar for an initiative on West-Islam relations. Also in the area of West-Islam relations, Strategic Foresight Group, a think tank based in India, works closely with the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats in the European Parliament. The World Economic Forum has created a Council of 100 Leaders on West-Islam relations, which brings together heads of major global think tanks ranging from Oxford Islamic Centre at Oxford University to Strategic Foresight Group, Observer Research Foundation,CASS-India, CSDS, Centre for Policy Research, ETC in Delhi of India and Al-Azhar University in Egypt.

Certainly interesting, but there are a few things I'm curious about.
There are some claims I have never heard verified from any source before, such as who built and destroyed the Tower of Babel, the age of Enosh (is this Enoch?), why the "lordship of the gods" would only begin 170,000 years after they arrive on earth (wouldn't they be the rulers from the start?), Adam and Eve being "given" the ability to procreate (I suspect they would have already had it..although this might be the date of the first human procreation, after all, everyone has a first time...), that Sargon's Akkadian empire was attributed to Ishtar (Inanna) is known, and that Sargon used "the weapon of Ishtar" to do it, but I am not aware of any more details, the Temple in Jerusalem being destroyed by Ramessess II (it was Nebuchadnezzar II (sp?) and a Roman Emperor (titus?) who did it), and basically any other "off the cuff" assumptions that would require a lot of proof.
Can you verify any of these, even if it is simply with speculation prompted by a source?
