According to the new

According to the new histories, this millennium sees the migration from EDIN (Eden) and the colonization of Sumer first, and then Egypt later at the hands of the descendants of the first people “created by gods” and saved from the Flood. Cain (the Akkadian Kiyan, Adamu's son) is exiled to the land of Nod. 5000 BC Here starts the Neolithic period. The megalithic culture spreads in Spain, France and England. The first agricultural community is born: farmers and herdsmen start living together. Farmers first settle in villages and then in houses and settlements (towns) built within walls. The power is centralized and a stratified social structure takes shape: kings, priests, soldiers, artisans, merchants, peasants, slaves... The first monumental civilization was established along the larger rivers: Tigris, Euphrates, Nile, Indus and Huang-He. Mesopotamia is ruled by priest kings. According to new histories, the biblical Enoch (the Akkadian Hanu) reached the “land of Shin'ar“ (Sumer) and builds the early cities: Eridu, where “kingship descended from heaven”. Therefore, the first king seems to have been a biblical patriarch. 4500 BC In this V millennium, Genesis records the peoples' migration from the north of Mounts Zagros (Eastern Iraq) to lower Mesopotamia, later called “the land of Shin'ar“ in the Bible. 4000 BC After a period of cultural and artistic stagnation and regression, almost suddenly Sumerian civilization appears. Men become builders of cities and keen in mathematics, astronomy and metalworking techniques. 3800 BC Here appears the biblical figure of Nimrod (the Sumerian ENMERKAR): great-grandson of Noah, descendant of Hivites (therefore African), gods' slave 192

and great builder. The gods begin the reconstruction of the cities destroyed by the Flood, Baalbek had been rebuilt shortly after the disaster, and then to follow Eridu (3800), Nippur (3800-3700), Babylon (3450), Agadir (2400), Nineveh (2300). In the Middle East, the processing of metal (copper) was developed. 3750 BC ANU, the Lord of the empire, descends on Earth: Sumerian texts describe the pomp with which the event was celebrated. 3670 BC The space bases transfer the command to Earth: this event signifies the beginning of both Sumerians days' counting and of the Jewish calendar. 3500 BC In Sumer people start using the energy produced by oil: Sumerian language has names for all bitumen derived substances. This period dates back to some statuettes depicting INANNA and gods' messengers with “tech” clothing: backpacks, caps, goggles, helmets ... 3450 BC There are many wars among gods along with several attempts to take control: according to the “alternative” hypothesis they were aimed at building a spaceport in Babylon (the Tower of Babel). With regard to the Biblical story of the multiplication of languages (related to the tower of Babel), there is a very enlightening Sumerian text: it says that there was a time when people paid homage to ENLIL in one language; then instead, the text continues, in Sumer, Shubur and Hmazi they started to speak many languages because the gods' master changed their words, putting in their mouths a confused language whereas at first the language of humanity was unique. 3200 BC 193
