With 50 miles of shelves! these 100 documents must be huge! Imagine if they opened them there, 100 boring nothing to say papers infront of 50 miles of documents, The most important! so the rest must be a load of nothing to say either.

What's the point in debating which of these cultures were superior to each other? In my mind they were all advanced, I was reading recently that within the Sumerian tablets that a number was discovered, a very very large number that was very specific. Well they did some calculations recently and it turns out that the number precisely equals the number of SECONDS in the precession of the equinox, and that is an amazing fact in my mind.
I feel that while we assert that the Sumerians were our first 'civilized' culture we do ignore a lot of other data that seems to suggest a previous civilization that may have influenced these cultures. Gobekli Tepei is one piece of evidence for previously existing advanced civilizations, as it is apparently dated at around 10,000bc. People here seem to get pretty down on the sumerians, I guess that mostly stems from the Annunaki thing and Zacharia Sitchin, although I feel that if you look a little deeper into that culture you find some pretty amazing things, they were also on to the precession of the equinox and its relationship to human evolution, which is a pretty remarkable achievement.
