These are a few things I've been wondering about.
Noah, (Gilgamesh in the original Sumerian epic), was commanded to take with him "the seed of every living thing" (not TWO of every living thing-
the SEED- of every living thing). Okay... Noah was from Ur, (the first great Sumerian city), located not too far from the alleged location of the
garden of Eden in the "Birthplace of Man", Mesopotamia, (later settled and ruled by the Babylonians). Okay- bear with me 'cause I'm gonna jump
around a bit - sorry. There were two things that made the "Garden of Eden" special, (three if you count the gaurdian with its flaming sword swinging
back and forth- but whatever), the "trees" of Life, and Knowledge of good and evil. Adam and Eve were supposedly kicked out of the garden because
God (s) didn't want them to continue to partake of the tree of life thus living forever as creatures who rebelled against Him (them?). Here's were
we have to make a big jump (for now). The US has had planes fying over and taking pictures of Mount Ararat,(Noah's landing?), since '49, (Who was
Pres?- heh) , until supposedly the early 90's, (again- who was the Pres?). Okay- that president, GHW, sent troops over to where? That President's
son sent troops to where? And for what? weapons of mass destruction. Nope. There weren't any. Here's my question- When the US "took" Baghdad, we
heard for days about one subject more than most. The looting and vandalism of the museums and the subsequent lock- down or relocation of many of
Iraq's ancient artifacts. If for some reason the American people were "liberated" by a foriegn army and a new gov. set up. Would we enter our
museums and trash the remnants of our own cultural and spiritual history?
