Secrets on Sumerian Stones takes a journey into the world directly following the Global Flood of Noah, and the rise of the Biblical Nimrod and the Tower of Babel.
Whilst many believe these events as myth covered in the opening pages of Genesis; the physical evidence of them upon examination is quite overwhelming. In this film, we will look at that evidence.
Secrets on Sumerian Stones is part III of the Genesis study by the God in a Nutshell project.
Secrets of Sumerian Stones draws from a number of artifacts from both ancient Sumer and Akkad. Above are portions of the Sumerian Epic Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta. A full translation of the text of Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta is available here.
Sumer is the earliest known civilization in the world. Many claim that the Sumerians just came out of nowhere. This culture is in the same area where Noah’s ark landed. And, Noah’s ark is said to have landed in the Kingdom of Ararat or, in Assyrian, the Urartu mountains.
The area on the map above where you see Eridu and Ur is called Sumer, where we get the word Sumerian. This is also the area of the Tower of Babel. The area where you see Noah’s ark is the mountains of Ararat, presumably where “Lord Aratta” lived.
Interestingly, we find the Ararat mountains (seen beneath) is likely the area Gilgamesh travelled to meet Utnapishtim (Noah in the Epic of Gilgamesh).
We also see “Utu/Shamash” seals where Utu is cutting his way from between two mountain peaks. In Sumerian, Utu was recognized as the “sun-god”. The first sun-god of all earth. However, Utu was also an actual person.
In fact, Utu is told to us to be the grandfather of Enmerkar (Nimrod) by the Sumerians. Therefore it does not take much thought to realize Utu is likely the Sumerian name for Noah’s son Ham. If we take that assumption, then we are looking at some of the earliest impressions of Noah’s son Ham cutting his way into the new world having begun between the two mountain peaks; the same place Gilgamesh travelled to visit Noah (Utnapishtim).
Utu, or in Akkadian “Shamash”, demanded his children and grandchildren worship him as the tribal king, war lord, and eventually the sun-god.
The sons of Ham were: Canaan, Put, Egypt and Cush.
It is through Cush that you get Nimrod and the Tower of Babel.
