I almost wish I was making this stuff up.


What else do we know about the precession?

Mayan mythology?

Other mythologies?

The answers will likely be found in the star records where ever those might be found.



According to later Babylonian myth, the Anunnaki were the children of Anu and Ki, brother and sister gods, themselves the children of Anshar and Kishar (Skypivot and Earthpivot, the Celestial poles).

Finding the South Celestial Pole

Method one: The Southern Cross

The south celestial pole can be located from the Southern Cross (Crux) and its two "pointer" stars α Centauri and β Centauri.

en.wikipedia.org...:_The_Southern_Cross






Because of a phenomenon known as the precession of the equinoxes, the poles trace out circles on the celestial sphere, with a period of about 25,700 years. The Earth's axis is also subject to other complex motions which cause the celestial poles to shift slightly over cycles of varying lengths; see nutation, polar motion and axial tilt. Finally, over very long periods the positions of the stars themselves change, due to the stars' proper motions.

So???

Anu and Ki are Gods of the sumerians. As per mythology - Agreed.
Anu and Ki are the children of the "celestial Poles".As per Mythology-Agreed.
The Precession of the Equinoxes are a Astronimical Event. Agreed.


So??? Whats the deal?

Howdy INWT

You link to two wiki pages that cover general information but AFAICT don't discuss or support your idea.

However perhaps I can help. Point to the the actual sumerian tablet or translation that you says deals with "precession". Please note, citing a fringe writer or web page doesn't count, the actual Sumerian translation please.

Also you do know how the Sumerians visualized the earth and sky as?


They believed their world, the universe (anki), gods, and people, was created or formed out of an ancient sea (abzu) which pre-existed anything else. The boundary between heaven and earth was a solid vault, the earth was a flat disc and within the vault lay the gas lil, or atmosphere.


Precession???

Why do you keep making threads and not providing much info but a super vague question? You also seem to like to use titles that don't really match your post.

The myth of earlier civilizations knowing about precession was first brought up over a century ago. Those interested in a long information heavy read on that subject can find it here:

One will note that this discussion deals with the Bablyonians and not the Sumerians. Who had no knowledge of Precession.


The idea that the Babylonian knew precession is also refuted by the study of two tablets from Uruk for the computation of summer solstices. (See: "Schematische Berechnungen der Sonnenwenden." by Hermann Hunger (Baghdader Mitteilungen, Volume 22, 1991, Pages 513-519).)




If precession was known in early Babylonia we could reasonably expect it to be recognised in some form of the mathematical astronomy that developed and/or later calendar systems. (The Babylonians did identify and record some long-term astronomical cycles such as the synodic periods of the moon and planets.) It would seem that the Babylonians were limited by their lack of interest in theoretical astronomy and they had no geometric scheme to assist them.

I had read about robert morning sky and downloaded the terra papers (comes in form of jpeg files and in two parts) and read ......

realising its total crap, but makes a good sci-fi read!

Sorry for the confusion with the multiple threads. I've put it all together here.

Well, I can answer some of your questions...

They were the only major civilization that tracked the precession of the equinoxes. Remember, though, that they didn't arise until after 200 AD.


Other mythologies?


The Sumerians were the only avid star watchers who kept good records, and they only recorded and named planets through the planet Saturn.



The answers will likely be found in the star records where ever those might be found.


Most of the star records aren't as detailed as you might think. The Chinese eventually discover them, as does Europe.



According to later Babylonian myth, the Anunnaki were the children of Anu and Ki, brother and sister gods, themselves the children of Anshar and Kishar (Skypivot and Earthpivot, the Celestial poles).

Erm... you might want to read the Sumerian FAQ...the most reliable source by people who actually read the language:
home.comcast.net...

That document will give you more information about the Anunnaki... direct from the Sumerian manuscripts.

We have astronomical tables that they left, but most of the rest of the world was more concerned with the agricultural period than anything else. Years were numbered by the amount of time since a particular event or the reign of a particular king.

The Sumerians were a group that numbered years since the birth of certain kings (so you'd have "year 10 of the reign of Gilgamesh" and so forth, but not an exact year "it's now 2042".) They predicted the motion of stars and had astrologers... they introduced astrology to the ancient Greeks. The ancient Greeks are the ones who delineated the constellations we see today.

Other cultures didn't see those symbols in the sky. To the oldest Egyptian cultures, for instance, Orion was TWO constellations... one of which was the boat of Isis.
