The origins of human beings according to ancient Sumerian texts

Print

Sumer, or the ‘land of civilized kings’, flourished in Mesopotamia, now modern-day Iraq, around 4500 BC. Sumerians created an advanced civilization with its own system of elaborate language and writing, architecture and arts, astronomy and mathematics. Their religious system was a complex one comprised of hundreds of gods. According to the ancient texts, each Sumerian city was guarded by its own god; and while humans and gods used to live together, the humans were servants to the gods.

The Sumerian creation myth can be found on a tablet in Nippur, an ancient Mesopotamian city founded in approximately 5000 BC.

The creation of Earth ( Enuma Elish ) according to the Sumerian tablets begins like this:

When in the height heaven was not named,
And the earth beneath did not yet bear a name,
And the primeval Apsu, who begat them,
And chaos, Tiamut, the mother of them both
Their waters were mingled together,
And no field was formed, no marsh was to be seen;
When of the gods none had been called into being,
And none bore a name, and no destinies were ordained;
Then were created the gods in the midst of heaven,
Lahmu and Lahamu were called into being...

Sumerian mythology claims that, in the beginning, human-like gods ruled over Earth. When they came to the Earth, there was much work to be done and these gods toiled the soil, digging to make it habitable and mining its minerals.

The texts mention that at some point the gods mutinied against their labour.

When the gods like men
Bore the work and suffered the toll
The toil of the gods was great,
The work was heavy, the distress was much.

Anu, the god of gods, agreed that their labour was too great. His son Enki, or Ea, proposed to create man to bear the labour, and so, with the help of his half-sister Ninki, he did. A god was put to death, and his body and blood was mixed with clay. From that material the first human being was created, in likeness to the gods.

You have slaughtered a god together
With his personality
I have removed your heavy work
I have imposed your toil on man.

In the clay, god and man
Shall be bound,
To a unity brought together;
So that to the end of days
The Flesh and the Soul
Which in a god have ripened –
That soul in a blood-kinship be bound.

This first man was created in Eden, a Sumerian word which means ‘flat terrain’. In the Epic of Gilgamesh , Eden is mentioned as the garden of the gods and is located somewhere in Mesopotamia between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

Initially human beings were unable to reproduce on their own, but were later modified with the help of Enki and Ninki. Thus, Adapa was created as a fully functional and independent human being. This ‘modification’ was done without the approval of Enki’s brother, Enlil, and a conflict between the gods began. Enlil became the adversary of man, and the Sumerian tablet mentions that men served gods and went through much hardship and suffering.

Adapa, with the help of Enki, ascended to Anu where he failed to answer a question about ‘the bread and water of life’. Opinions vary on the similarities between this creation story and the biblical story of Adam and Eve in Eden.

yes absolutely I have always believed just from looking at chinese characters and sumerian that the connection is there as well as other reasonings that I will not divulge as I would rather save face than show my lack of depth due to my not being able to speak chinese

Finally, someone that KNOWS what they are talking about! I have no problem believing what you say. Furthermore, I beleive that "our" archeologists, and so-called "scientists" have known for years (since the beginning???) that there was a GREAT civilization that streched across the FLAT EARTH we live on today.

I know this will be difficult for you to accept.

In this article, there are FOUR "characters" on the left side of the second figure. I believe everyone can see them.

What if I tell you these FOUR characters are ancient Chinese, and I can read / interpret them?
They have NOTHING to do with mythology. On the contrary, they are about COMMERCE / BUSINESS.

Will you believe?

"Even in Bible, Christ told to pray to your heavenly father without mentioning names..."

However, in the Bible, Christ also said that "...you are all the same in His eyes..." (paraphrased).

“As the Sumerian story says Enki and Ninki created Us (humans) at the request of Anu “

There is no such thing as common human heritage. Different people have different heritage. In plane words a particular human breed was ether created from scratch or gods inerbread with vanilla to start a new sort of species. Souls for different human species bodies also come from different places-lokas and after death go back to where they come from. A bit of genetics from father god is enough to mark up his property on earth and have souls from his world to incarnate into his bodies to get that life lesson. In multiethnic bodies darkest god-father wins that body, soul will come from his world there. 

Even in Bible, Christ told to pray to your heavenly father without mentioning names, that is because your father might be different from what you think and if you go by name you prayer might go  the wrong deiety. Them wizards knew at the old times that people have different origins unlike modern scientists now.
