Sumerian Kings List

Recommended Posts

It would appear that the Sumerians in an attempt to push their rulers kingship back to the glory days of Dalamantia actually ran the dates of kingship to the days of Adam and Eve. Perhaps even surprisingly close. They must have been a tad bit confused with 2 different types of superhumans lol.

 

These Kings represented the five cities before the Great Flood.

 

Eridug or Eridu

Bad-tibira

Larag or Larak

Zimbir or Sippar

Curuppag or Shuruppak

 

While in Eridu Kings from Heaven reigned for 64,800 years before the Flood.

Together they ruled for 432,000 years before the Flood (120 Sar) *According to the urantia book one sumerian year actually equals one month. So its very easy to make a calculation on how long this kingship lasted.

 

432,000/12= 36,000 years. Add on the past couple thousand years and we get 38,000 years.

Quote:

(857.7) 77:2.10 When archaeologists dig up the clay-tablet records of the later-day Sumerian descendants of the Nodites, they discover lists of Sumerian kings running back for several thousand years; and as these records go further back, the reigns of the individual kings lengthen from around twenty-five or thirty years up to one hundred and fifty years and more. This lengthening of the reigns of these older kings signifies that some of the early Nodite rulers (immediate descendants of the Prince’s staff) did live longer than their later-day successors and also indicates an effort to stretch the dynasties back to Dalamatia.

 

(857.cool.gif 77:2.11 The records of such long-lived individuals are also due to the confusion of months and years as time periods. This may also be observed in the Biblical genealogy of Abraham and in the early records of the Chinese. The confusion of the twenty-eight-day month, or season, with the later introduced year of more than three hundred and fifty days is responsible for the traditions of such long human lives. There are records of a man who lived over nine hundred “years.” This period represents not quite seventy years, and such lives were regarded for ages as very long, “threescore years and ten” as such a life span was later designated.

 

(858.1) 77:2.12 The reckoning of time by the twenty-eight-day month persisted long after the days of Adam. But when the Egyptians undertook to reform the calendar, about seven thousand years ago, they did it with great accuracy, introducing the year of 365 days.

It would appear that fringe scholars have confused "Nephilim" with some astronaught aliens. When in fact these "mighty men of old" and giant men from the past are actually just the Nodites. Scholars have really had such a difficult time in understanding the Old Testament and similar writings. Its interesting how the Urantia Book covers the entire Old Testament and fixes all the confusion in it. It is the same with all these sumerian seals, the sumerians were just writing about the Adamites and Nodites, and some fringe scholars like Stichin confused them with ancient aliens.

 

I did a rough calculation of that date though, I probably should have done a more accurate one. They actually used a 28 day month, and I forgot to add on about another 3 thousand years. But the calculation still comes very close to Adam and Eves arrival.

 

(856.6) 77:2.3 The postrebellion era on Urantia witnessed many unusual happenings. A great civilization — the culture of Dalamatia — was going to pieces. “The Nephilim (Nodites) were on earth in those days, and when these sons of the gods went in to the daughters of men and they bore to them, their children were the ‘mighty men of old,’ the ‘men of renown.’” While hardly “sons of the gods,” the staff and their early descendants were so regarded by the evolutionary mortals of those distant days; even their stature came to be magnified by tradition. This, then, is the origin of the well-nigh universal folk tale of the gods who came down to earth and there with the daughters of men begot an ancient race of heroes. And all this legend became further confused with the race mixtures of the later appearing Adamites in the second garden.

Can't find the "flood" date but using 3000 years - a 28 day month makes a 13 month year so 432,000 divided by 13 = 33,230.8 + 3000 yrs since the "flood" date = 36,231 years adjusted somewhat by flood date (could it have been 5,000 years ago instead of 3,000?). Fascinating history.

Yea that is a more accurate calculation Bradly. From what I have researched the kings list likely stopped writing around 3 thousand b.c. So it could be 33,230 + 5 thousand b.c. Which would put it bang on with Adam and Eves arrival.

 

What is kind of a interesting side note is that Berrosus was a greek scholar in Babylon and worked out of a temple devoted to Marduk http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berossus . Marduk is the legend of Adam according to the urantia book. Its interesting that Berrosus actually used the Kings List in a way to try and convince people about Marduk, he was trying to justify the legend of Adam using the kings list. Its funny that the Sumerians confused the Adamites with the Nodites, yet this Berrosus guy actually was able to match up the kings list with Adam many years later hahaha. I wonder if he had an inkling of the difference between a Nodite and a Adamite or if he like almost all of these other scholars mixed them up with each other.

 

(1008.8) 92:5.6 Many races have conceived of their leaders as being born of virgins; their careers are liberally sprinkled with miraculous episodes, and their return is always expected by their respective groups. In central Asia the tribesmen still look for the return of Genghis Khan; in Tibet, China, and India it is Buddha; in Islam it is Mohammed; among the Amerinds it was Hesunanin Onamonalonton; with the Hebrews it was, in general, Adam’s return as a material ruler. In Babylon the god Marduk was a perpetuation of the Adam legend, the son-of-God idea, the connecting link between man and God. Following the appearance of Adam on earth, so-called sons of God were common among the world races.
