Short Description: Source
Main article: Sumerian mythology

Like other cities of Asia Minor and the Mediterranean, Sumer was a polytheistic, or henotheistic, society. There was no organized set of gods, with each city-state having its own patrons, temples, and priest-kings; but the Sumerians were probably the first to write down their beliefs. Sumerian beliefs were also the inspiration for much of later Mesopotamian mythology, religion, and astrology.

The Sumerians worshipped An as the primary god, equivalent to "heaven"-- indeed, the word "an" in Sumerian means "sky", and his consort Ki, meaning "earth". Collectively the Gods were known as Anunnaki ("heaven and earth", reminiscent of the opening verse of Genesis(1) - "In the beginning God created the heavens and earth"). An's closest cohorts were Enki in the south at the Abzu temple in Eridu, Enlil in the north at the Ekur temple of Nippur and Inana, the deification of Venus, the morning (eastern) and evening (western) star, at the Eanna temple (shared with An) at Uruk. The sun was Utu, was worshipped at Sippar, the moon was Nanna, worshipped at Ur and Nammu or Namma was one of the names of the Mother Goddess, probably considered to be the original matrix; there were hundreds of minor deities. The Sumerian gods (Sumerian dingir, plural dingir-dingir or dingir-a-ne-ne) thus had associations with different cities, and their religious importance often waxed and waned with the political power of the associated cities. The gods were said to have created human beings from clay for the purpose of serving them. The gods often expressed their anger and frustration through earthquakes and storms: the gist of Sumerian religion was that humanity was at the mercy of the gods.

Sumerians believed that the universe consisted of a flat disk enclosed by a tin dome(2). The Sumerian afterlife involved a descent into a gloomy netherworld to spend eternity in a wretched existence as a Gidim (ghost).

Sumerian temples consisted of a forecourt, with a central pond for purification (the Abzu). The temple itself had a central nave with aisles along either side. Flanking the aisles would be rooms for the priests. At one end would stand the podium and a mudbrick table for animal and vegetable sacrifices. Granaries and storehouses were usually located near the temples. After a time the Sumerians began to place the temples on top of multi-layered square constructions built as a series of rising terraces: the ziggurats.

Research Questions

(1) Extrapolate on the possibility that the Jews "borrowed" their Creation story from Sumerian texts {Beth's work fits in here}. Gather evidence and make comparisons where possible.

(2) Reminiscent of the Space Ark in Science Fiction, where each culture is on a flat disk with a space dome, and no one in the domes knows of other domes.... "The Star Lost"

This is the first of three e-books on the subject. They are available from the above link. This presentation ties in the existance of Star Gates with the Sumerian Gods.

This is a soon to be released film, actually part one of three, that has taken the film maker 25 years of research to tell his story. It promises to be a fantastic spectacle and a though provoking epic. The link will take you to the movie trailer.
Zecharia Sitchin
This author has become quite well know with his theories on the Ancient Gods of Sumeria and visitors from other worlds.

The theory has been gaining ground for several years now. And with all the research being done, there are many new facts and connections showing up. While main stream scholars have not yet taken up this line of reasoning, there are more and more profesional people considering the possibilities. And more important the main stream Media has been very active in promoting this subject, with serious and well made documentaries presenting the evidence and the possibility.

Sumer (or Shumer, Egyptian Sangar, Bib. Shinar, native ki-en-gir, (from Ki = Earth, En = (title) usually translated as Lord, Gir = (cultured) usually translated as Civilised, thus "the land of the civilised lords") was an ancient civilization located in the southern part of Mesopotamia (modern day southeastern Iraq) from the time of the earliest records in the mid 4th millennium BC until the rise of Babylonia in the late 3rd millennium BC. The term "Sumerian" applies to all speakers of the Sumerian language. Sumer is considered the first settled society in the world to have manifested all the features needed to qualify fully as a "civilization".

The Star Lost
Earthship Ark

Though this series never made it in its time, the concept is very interesting. We are including it here merely for the design concept and speculation

Now God saw that the whole world was corrupt and full of violence. And God said to Noah, "Everything on earth shall perish. Make yourself an ark with ribs of cypress. Its length shall be 300 cubits, its breadth 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits. . . And you shall bring living creatures of every kind into the ark to keep them alive with. you. . . ." -Genesis 6

There's no doubt that Harlan Ellison, like most good fiction writers, reads the Bible. Both Hemingway and Steinbeck devoured the book, not only for its majestic prose and poetic titles, but for its stories. Great, gripping adventure tales. Most of them involving mortal men involved with immortality. Life beyond this life. The stuff of dreams and epic drama. The stories, to some, are gospel truth. To others they're the finest science fiction. But whatever. If you're going to steal, steal from the best. So Harlan Ellison did. He took the story of Noah's ark and flung it -with space-age updating, of course-900 years into the future.
