An enigmatic people emerged from the cloak of
prehistoric anonymity, and began to build marvelous
cities in the fertile plain between the mighty Tigris
and Euphrates rivers, (sounds familiar, Gen: 2;14).
They instigated A technological revolution in fields
such as agriculture, commerce, mathematics and
metallurgy, (humm, offspring of Adam?).
These remarkable people began to develop sophisticated
forms of government and established the earliest knowm
social institutions (kingdom halls), I don,t think so, schools
and courts of laws.
Clay tablets found related an amazing story of Gods who
created the Heavens and Earth, and Gods physically descended
to earth at the beginning of time, in order to lay the
foundations for cities. These people lived in the
underworld which was conceived as "Garden of Gods".
All good things in the Garden had been sent down by
the Gods from Heaven to earth,( humm, where have I
seen this before, Gen.1;29)
Sumerian religion was A "Cult of Creation".
