well this is one area i've done some studying in. here's an excerpt from a thread i did on the topic:
Did you know, there's not a single remaining piece of art from ancient Sumer, that depicts a humanized "god"? All the humanized gods in
mesopotamian art, are AFTER the black sea flood. Prior to the flood, they appear to be reptilian or amphibian or a bit of both.
I've been scouring the archives for sumerian artifacts, specifically, and the only other things I can find are plates, bowls, vases, and odd little
symbols, like charms or fetishes, of some kind. There are no depictions of human gods, no depictions of human kings, or human shaman or human
anything, until after the flood. suddenly, in akkad, you see the formerly sumerian gods depicted as humans wearing priestly garments and symbols of
After researching some of the texts that came out of the area and time period, I concluded the following:
1. There was an advanced civilization on this planet prior to the black sea flood, it was spaceflight worthy. So when the flood came, the advanced
civ simply vacated with their technology.
Evidence of these concepts can be seen in The Book of 1 Enoch, where it describes all manner of bizarre events, including what sounds to be space
flight, genetically engineered human hybrids who were the half gods of legends, also known as the nephilim in biblical texts (the mighty men of old,
men of reknown, genesis 6). Gilgamesh of the Epic of Gilgamesh, was one such example. He was a god king, considered to be two thirds divine due to
Who genetically engineered them? Sounds like the sumerian gods did. (See "Enki and Ninmah"). And what did the sumerian gods do? They spliced
divine dna with human dna, creating a hybrid ruling class, otherwise known as "When kingship descended from heaven."
Now if the sumerian gods were reptilian or amphibian or similar, and they spliced their dna with ours, and then made the offspring into kings and
rulers, well, there's an answer.
2. the "serpent" of the garden of eden in genesis, was also called the great dragon in the book of revelation AND in the sumerian texts.
the word serpent in the bible, comes from two places, "nachash" and "seraph",
plural "seraphim." the seraphim were a race of "angels" (et.al, one of many prior creations of god).
ask questions and i'll try to offer more precise information.
