Sumer Decoded



Sumer is said to be the oldest known civilization. So where does a person start when studying Sumer?

This website will start with a map.

When you discover that Ethiopia was a "Greater Ethiopia" thousands of years ago,
then Sumerians literally had African Kingdoms on their doorstep. Sumer had ancient African neighbours.
So Sumerians probably had African lineage. [Sumerians were probably descendants of Africans from Havilah or Raamah cultures.]


[This "genesis map" is based upon analysis of Genesis 2:10-14 and Genesis 10:6-12 ].
Some "satellite archaeology" information is also used to locate ancient river systems.

To note:
1.The Genesis map (aethiopia.jpg) corresponds approximately to what archaeologists call an
"Afro-Arabian Cultural Complex" (AACC) in Western Arabia and Southern Arabia.
i.e An Afro-Arabian Cultural Complex,Sabir/Sabr culture, etc.


2.The Genesis map suggests that the AACC also had control of ancient river systems that are now extinct.
This is possibly something that archaeologists have yet to discover.

i.e. 2A: That Havilah existed as a culture based around the Gihon river,
and that the Havilah culture died when the Gihon river became extinct.

2B: That Raamah culture existed and possibly controlled rivers that flowed
into the Rub Al Khali region,and Sumerian homeland.
So Raamah culture possibly contributed to the beginnings of the Sumerian nation.
Raamah culture died when the Rub Al Khali region became a desert.


This information can be considered as a more recent "Out of Africa" migration.
But it is an "Out of Africa" migration that caucasian scientists don't want to discuss openly.

To understand Sumer, you need to consider the existence of an empire more ancient than Sumerian civilization.
Whether that Empire became a "civilization" or remained an "advanced culture" is not known.

[i.e. The cities of Sumer have names which are not Sumerian.The cities
of Sumer were founded by nation(s) more ancient than the Sumerians.]

People could consider that Ancient Ethiopia was an empire older than both Sumerian and Egyptian civilizations:
that Ethiopia's prehistory was very long..
1.Ethiopia has a very ancient prehistory involving large African migrations into Asia,and prehistoric empires.
2.Ethiopian cultures in Asia eventually collapsed under the pressure of desertification,Sumerian invasion/migration,
Egyptian domination, and various nomadic invasions.

Ancient Ethiopia was an important connection between Sumer and Egypt.



Question: Where is the evidence for an empire older than Egypt and Sumer?

Brief Answer: Names of Sumerian cities are older than Sumer,bible traditions suggest an empire older than Sumer,
other oral traditions and documents from the Fertile Crescent suggest an empire older than Sumer,Sumerian King List suggests
king(s) older than Sumer,extinct river systems that are now desert may yield artifacts if excavated archaeologically,
data about ancient skeletons from the fertile crescent need to be reexamined:especially the many "dolicocephalic","prognathous","platyrrhine"
skeletons(skulls) which could be interpreted as african or descendants of africans,some of the genetic haplogroups such as E1b1b that scientists
label "middle eastern" could bereinterpreted as "african nations in the middle east that disappeared". (i.e. interbred and disappeared.)

1B. EVIDENCE OF AFRICAN POPULATIONS MIGRATING INTO ARABIA [click]
[African populations were able to migrate into western Arabia across the Red Sea.
Africans followed ancient rivers to reach the Persian Gulf and establish the lost kingdom of Havilah.
Such rivers are now extinct in Arabia,but they can be traced from wadis and satellite archaeology.]

1C. EVIDENCE OF AFRICANS IN MESOPOTAMIA [click]
Question: Where is the evidence of Africans in Mesopotamia?
Answer: The Sumerians could be considered a Eur-African race in Southern Mesopotamia.
That suggests that Black African populations once existed somewhere nearby Mesopotamia (probably in Arabia).
And it suggests Sumerian civilization itself brought African influences into Mesopotamia,if they were not already there.

2. SUMERIAN ETHNIC IDENTITY [click]

2B. EXTINCT RACES AND RACIAL REALITY [click]
[It is probable that Sumerians had an African lineage because they associated humanity with black colour (not white).
Sumerians had an "Eurafrican mulatto" appearance, even if they were not considered mulattos.
Sumerians defy racial classification.Mulatto physical features do not fit into any modern racial category because they appear as mixture of racial traits.
Here is proposed that Sumerians could be newly classified as "Brown Negroids",so as to oppose the lie that Sumerians were Caucasian. ]

2C. ANCIENT & MODERN CLASSIFICATION OF NATIONS (1.diagrams) [click]
[European scientists have tried to destroy the word "Hamite" by falsely defining it to mean Caucasoid.
Here is proposed that the word Hamite should be understood to mean Negroid.
When the word Hamite is used here, it is in the sense of "biblical Hamite"(Negroid).]

2D. ANCIENT & MODERN CLASSIFICATION OF NATIONS (2.conclusion) [click]
Sumer could be described as a Hamitic(Negroid) civilization.]

2E. THE INVENTIVENESS OF ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS [click]
[ If Sumerians and Ancient Egyptians were inventive, it is not because they absorbed some caucasoid genetics.
Instead,the mulatto appearance of Sumerians and Ancient Egyptians might be connected with "hybrid vigour"(Heterosis).
Perhaps their hybrid appearance was connected to their energy and creativeness to found the most ancient civilizations.]

2G. Ancient Egyptian identity: North Africans/brown negroids - negroid appearance(phenotypes) and some individuals with dormant caucasian blood lines. [click]
[People who try to ethnically/racially classify ancient Egyptians might consider a documentary "The Human Family Tree" (National Geographic).
Such a documentary mentions a man named David: a man with African appearance(phenotype) and Caucasian bloodlines.]

["And the whole earth was of one language" (Genesis 11:1).
Sumerian language unified many ancient nations.It was the lingua franca of the fertile crescent.
But was Ubaid culture a first attempt to unify nations?

3C. SUMERIAN LANGUAGE AND SAHEL CULTURE. [click]
[The Sahel is a region between the Sahara and Sub-Saharan Africa.It runs from West Africa
to East Africa. Archaeology suggests the Sahel region of Africa had links with the Middle-East
over thousands of years.]

3E. ALTAIC SCYTHIA and SUMER: [click]
[Here is posited that the advanced cultures in ancient Scythia were Mongoloid not Caucasoid.(Eurasian not Indo-European)
i.e. Oxus River culture probably had dominant Altaic influences,as is now emerging from DNA analysis of the nearby Tocharian culture.
http://www.forbes.com/sites/kristinakillgrove/2015/07/18/these-red-haired-chinese-mummies-come-from-all-over-eurasia-dna-reveals/
Both Oxus River culture and Tocharians were probably connected to the Lop Nor ancient trade centre.]

5B. ANCIENT RELIGION: The Sacrifice system. [click]

5C. ANCIENT RELIGION: Nimrod Religion is NOT Molech Worship
NIMROD RELIGION IS NOT MOLECH WORSHIP.
Nimrod religion vcould be described as a godly religionof worshipping the creator in times before writing existed. Thousands of years before the bible was written.
i.e. Ancient people marvelling at the heavens and worshipping a God(s) who they believed created the heavens, but people had no bible,
so they worshipped the creator in whatever ways were possible and appropriate for them thousands of years ago.
MOLECH WORSHIP IS A PERVERSE COUNTERFEIT OF THE NIMROD RELIGION .
Nimrod Religion was a religion of people coming together in cooperative groups,building structures,humans trying to keeping nature in balance,and worshipping a God(s) who created nature in such seeming balance.
Nimrod religion was a religious revolution that probably encouraged people to sacrifice animals to God(s) rather than sacrificing humans.
Molech Worship is different.Molech worship involves human sacrifice.
Molech worship is the religion of killing the Nimrod King: the Nimrod king being symbolised by a horned animal which is ritually sacrificed (horned bull,ram,horned owl,etc).

6. UBAID CULTURE: Before the Sumerians [click]
[Is Ubaid culture really Nimrod culture? Does Ubaid culture correspond to the Nimrod Kingdom?
Ubaid Culture spread from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean Sea.
Was Ubaid culture the remnants of a diverse religio-political empire
that began in promise but became dispersed?]

6B. UBAID CULTURE ORIGINS: its possible Sahel and Dead Sea connections. [click]
[Here is postulated that Ubaidian culture was formed from interaction between Sahel and Dead Sea cultures.
i.e. The origins of Ubaid Culture might be from the African Sahel(Cushites) and Dead Sea techno-complex(Proto-Canaanites).]

7. ORIGIN OF THE SUMERIANS [click]
[Noone has found the homeland of the Sumerians because their homeland was flooded by sea.
Sumerians had their origin in the Persian Gulf Basin when it was dry land.
That forgotten land was an ancient trade centre.]

8. WAS ANCIENT ETHIOPIA THE TRUE ATLANTIS ? [click]













Sumerian speaking populations associated with:
Arabian bifacial culture,"hunter and fisher peoples",
Eastern Arabia littoral region.
[note that Arabian Bifacial Culture were "pre-Arab" people, not Arabs.
Here is suggested that A.B. Culture were probably Eur-Africans.]

African speaking populations associated with:
Afro-arabian cultural complex on both sides of the Red Sea.



[General Information - added 03/02/2017]
1)See Journal paper(s) by anthropologist C.L. Brace for information about Natufians having negroid physical traits.


2) The archaeological site being labelled as Tartessos in CadizSpain (possibly biblical Tarshish,Tartarus)
might be an ancient Ethiopian colony, not the location of Atlantis.
i.e. see documentaries such as "Finding Atlantis" and "Atlantis Found"
i.e. The real Atlantis is probably ancient Ethiopia.
see URL http://www.sumerdecoded.com/african_arabia/was_ancient_ethiopia_the_true_atlantis.txt
Ancient Ethiopia was probably a Sea Power, given that it extended across the Red Sea and Bab-Al-Mandeb strait.
So it is possible that Tartessos was the furthest Ethiopian colony to the west.
Ancient Sea voyages from Ethiopia to Tartessos would have possible by sailing near shorelines,
around the coastlines of the Mediterranean Sea and outside the Straits of Gibraltar on to the Atlantic Shorelines of Europe and Africa.

Plato is his legend about Atlantis probably confused the location of [a colony of Ancient Ethiopia in Spain] with the location of [Ancient Ethiopia].
The sources that Plato used for his legend for Atlantis possibly gave the western extent of Atlantis sea empire from Ethiopian Arabia to
Spain (outside the pillars of Hercules[Straits of Gibraltar]) and Plato accidentally or deliberately chose the western side of the Atlantis Sea Empire
in Spain instead of Ethiopia. i.e. The real location of Atlantis homeland being the eastern side of the Sea Empire in Ethiopian Arabia.

The Ethiopian sea colony of Tartessos probably became an Phoenician(Canaanite) port city thousands of years later.

See Isaiah 66: 19 which mentions "Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow" . The mention of Bows sounds very Ethiopian.
In Egyptian writing and artwork Ethiopians were famous for their skill with bows.
And the Egyptian Nome(province) which is closest to Ethiopia is called "Ta-Seti" or "land of the bow".
Some lines of research might suggest that Ta-Seti was part of ancient Ethiopia ,and later became an Egyptian Nome(province).

3)See also book(Black Sumer) and interview(s) of author Hermel Hermstein for theories about migrations of Africans
through the African Sahel into Arabia.

[General Information - added 11/02/2017]
4)Archaeologists concede that Egypt and Ancient Ethiopia had a "shared history".
See documentary "The Black Pharaohs".

5)Natufian culture emerged in North Africa/Western Fertile crescent/Levant around the same time that Jomon and Chinook Culture emerged elsewhere.
There is possibly a submerged landmass between Japan and East Asian mainland that corresponds to the ancient trade centre of Jomon Culture.
[See information also other submerged landmasses such as Doggerland between Britain and the north west of European continent.]

6) The submerged landmass of Beringia and dry landmass of Death Valley might correspond to the ancient trade centres of the Chinook Culture.


[General Information - added 19/02/2017]
7) In the biblical genealogies, there is a possibility that Abraham (and his 2 sons Isaac,Ishmael) corresponds to Eber (and his 2 sons Joktan,Peleg) .
The biblical names Eber and the Abraham(Ebrahim) sound similar. Eber is significant because Semitic nations such as the Hebrews derives their national name from Eber.
The Genealogical line from Arphaxad to Abraham is overlong and probably goes in circles.Such errors in genealogy are probably something that happens when a nation
such as the Hebrews originally relied on oral traditions and later acquired the ability to write from older cultures such as Canaanite civilization.
The Hebrew Alphabet is derived from older alphabet used by Canaanite civilization which archaeologists label the Western Semitic alphabet.
See information elsewhere on this website about both Western Semitic and Eastern Semitic languages being of African origin.

The sons of Joktan are probably Arab tribes, so when Arabic people say they are descended from Ishmael, this possibly means the same as the sons of Joktan.

8)added 28/05/2017

This belief was possibly based on the stone age religion of the great hunter Orion who is struck down by the snake
but is destined to be resurrected.(Genesis 3:15)
[later cultures corrupted this story so that Orion is struck down by a scorpion.]...

Further information:

In modern astronomy, Lepus the Hare is the constellation below the feet of Orion.

However, in ancient civilizations such as Egypt and Persia,the constellation of Lepus is associated with a serpent.
i.e. An eagle grasping a serpent.

Eagles/Vultures are ancient symbols found in places such as Catal Huyuk and Gobeklii Tepe.
Eagles/Vultures probably represent the soul travelling to the afterlife or heaven.
Symbols of Eagles/Vultures are possibly connected with memories of The Cygnus constellation having been located at the north pole during the stone age.
Due to the planetary phenomenon of precession, over thousands of years ancient people every night watched the constellation of Cygnus
circle the north pole like a bird circling in the sky.

A symbol of an eagle overcoming a serpent is probably connected with stone age religion of the human soul overcoming death, and being reborn.

In Sumerian writings, imagery of the eagle overcoming the serpent is part of the story of Etana. Etana is the most ancient Kings in the Sumerian King List.
Etana is said to ascend to heaven on the wings of an eagle.
Etana probably corresponds to Nimrod mentioned in the christian bible.

Also, the names of the stars in the Lepus constellation suggest it is constellation associated with a villainous character corresponding the serpent in the bible.
The star Arnebo means 'the enemy of him that cometh'. i.e. The enemy of the messiah.
The star Sugia means 'the deceiver'.

9)The great Sphinx in Saqqara might be thousands of years older than the pyramids, in the sense that head of the sphinx might have originally been a yandang or rock shaped by wind erosion.
Yardangs sometimes look like ancient buildings/statues but they are natural formations.
Perhaps thousands of years before the pyramids, that yardang was carved into a head of a lion.
Then during the pyramid building age, maybe the head of lion was so badly eroded that the ancient egyptians decided to recarve it into the head of a pharaoh.
Also,perhaps they decided to carve a body for it, by cutting into the rock layers of the Saqqara plateau.
So the body of the sphinx is the same age as the pyramids, but the head of the sphinx might be thousands of years older.
Saqqara might have been a religious centre with a carved lion's head thousands of years before the pyramids.
[The way that pyramid causeway(s) are built to pass close the sphinx but avoid the sphinx might suggest that the sphinx was existing in some form before the pyramids.

i.e. The way that pyramid causeway(s) at Saqqara are built at a non-rightangle might suggest that the sphinx was existing in some form before the pyramids. ]


10) During the documentary "Cradle of the Gods" about Gobeklii Tepe, there is a face mask that looks brachycephalic.
The author(s) of this website would suggests that is a "stylised" carved face, so it does not realistically represent the faces of Natufians builders of Gobecklii Tepe. Maybe it represents something like a face with a long beard.
12,000 years ago, humans probably did not have brachycephalic faces.The Natufian builders of Gobeklii Tepe had dolicocephalic faces.
If carved faces look brachycephalic maybe they represented faces with long beards.

See also a similar looking face mask found at Abydos in ancient Egypt from around 500 years ago.
[Documentary: "Egypt Unwrapped - Part 1 - The Scorpion King". In the documentary there is a face mask that looks brachycephalic, but the ancient egyptians were dolicocephalic]
