The Sumerian 'Stargates' Part II.... The primary concern of the Gilgimish epic is of of the journey to the Masu mountains, the descent of Gilgimish into the underworld, his search for the plant of Life, his entrance into the Heavenly realms, along the road of the sun, ie ecliptic plane; The Mashu mountains I give to you freely (!) The mountain is called Mashu. As noted in the opening post, i consider the mountain of the horizon that appears before sunrise and after sunset the zodiacal light, as this is in conjunction with the ecliptic plane, so again factors under consideration, the ecliptic plane/Mlky Way interesction with the horizon, the primary role of Venus, the zodiacal light, as all seen here; It's the importance of the mountain symbolism i now want to look at, as i believe this is of the utmost importance in realising what the ziggurat represented, and its central role in Sumerian culture. Here is what they wrote of their ziggurats; Its king is worthy of Enlil the king in the true house of youth.

Pythagorean theorem The Pythagorean theorem: The sum of the areas of the two squares on the legs (a and b) equals the area of the square on the hypotenuse (c). In mathematics, the Pythagorean theorem—or Pythagoras' theorem—is a relation in Euclidean geometry among the three sides of a right triangle. It states that the square of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. The theorem can be written as an equation relating the lengths of the sides a, b and c, often called the Pythagorean equation:[1] where c represents the length of the hypotenuse, and a and b represent the lengths of the other two sides. The Pythagorean theorem is named after the Greek mathematician Pythagoras (ca. 570 BC—ca. 495 BC), who by tradition is credited with its proof,[2][3] although it is often argued that knowledge of the theorem predates him. The theorem has numerous proofs, possibly the most of any mathematical theorem. Pythagorean proof The Pythagorean proof or

The Chaldean Account of Genesis: Chapter III. Chaldean Legends Transmitted Through Berosus and Other Ancient Authors The Chaldean Account of Genesis, by George Smith, [1876], at p. 37 Berosus and his copyists.—Cory's translation. I HAVE included in this chapter the principal extracts from ancient authors respecting the Babylonian accounts of Genesis. Berosus, from whom the principal extracts are copied, lived, as I have mentioned in Chapter I., about B.C. 330 to 260, and, from his position as a p. 38 [paragraph continues] Babylonian priest, had the best means of knowing the Babylonian traditions. The others are later writers, who copied in the main from Berosus, and whose notices may be taken as giving abridgments of his statements. I have preferred as usual, the translations of Cory as being standard ones, and made without prejudice from recent discoveries. Extract I. Berosus, in the first book of his history of Babylonia, informs us that he lived in the age of Alexander, the son of Philip. p. 39 Click to enlargeOANNES AND OTHER BABYLONIAN MYTHOLOGICAL FIGURES FROM CYLINDER. p. 40 p. 41 p. 42

Crop circle shows recreation and beginning of 7th day The end of time actually refers to the end of the 9 underworlds or 9 ever shortening periodes that all end on the end-date. The last opening of an underworld occured during the period of August 10 to 13, 1999 and concerned the start of the eight underworld. Each underworld can be divided in 13 periodes. According to the theory of the Maya-researcher Carl Johan Calleman these 13 periods can be considered as 7 "days" that alternate with 6 "nights". Unfortunately Calleman adapted his end-date to his theory instead of adapting the theory to the factual dates that we find everywhere on the monuments of the classical Maya's that lived during the period of about 200 to 900 AD. The end-date of Calleman (October 28, 2011) is a fictive date that doesn't correspond with divine creation. In this scope last year in Italy (Poirino) appeared a crop circle formation on the day of the true beginning of the "sixth night" of the "eight underworld", namely June 13, 2010.

Babylonian mathematics Babylonian clay tablet YBC 7289 with annotations. The diagonal displays an approximation of the square root of 2 in four sexagesimal figures, 1 24 51 10, which is good to about six decimal digits. 1 + 24/60 + 51/602 + 10/603 = 1.41421296... The tablet also gives an example where one side of the square is 30, and the resulting diagonal is 42 25 35 or 42.4263888... Babylonian mathematics (also known as Assyro-Babylonian mathematics[1][2][3][4][5][6]) was any mathematics developed or practiced by the people of Mesopotamia, from the days of the early Sumerians to the fall of Babylon in 539 BC. accurate to three sexagesimal places (seven significant digits). Origins of Babylonian mathematics[edit] Babylonian mathematics is a range of numeric and more advanced mathematical practices in the ancient Near East, written in cuneiform script.

From under the Dust of Ages: Lecture 5 - Chaldean Libraries - Wisdom Library BEROSUS, the Chaldean historian, resorts to an ingenious literary fiction to preserve the continuity of narrative in his "History of Chaldea," which he claims to have based on documentary evidence, extending back over a period of twenty myriads of years. The deluge, which forms the concluding episode in the first book, and his account of which is, as I have shown, based upon the copies of the story of Samas-Napisti stored in the libraries of Chaldea, causes no rupture in the long series of records to which he claims to have had access ; for by the ingenious device of making Xisuthrus an author and historian, he is able to carry his series of records beyond the dividing streams of the deluge. Xisuthrus was, according to Berosus, instructed by the god Cronos, whom we can identify with Hea of the tablet, before the deluge, to write a history of The account which Berosus gives of this mysterious founder of the scribe caste is : — (Hea - Davkina. Oh Lord, by thy wisdom, a wisdom unequalled.

Nimrod, Nibiru, Anunnaki Study by: Rob Skiba In the prior post, I laid the foundation for what was going on before and immediately after the Flood as it pertains to the ancient gods. I also showed you what they did that so provoked the God of Heaven to destroy a world that had already been thoroughly corrupted. The Pre-Flood world was an amazing and terrifying place full of hybrids. Our world is turning into the same thing today. But Yeshua warns us: “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. God HAD to step in during the days of Noah in order to preserve mankind, the animals, plants and even the planet itself from the corruption of the gods. We next need to look at the Sumerian family of gods (which became that of the Assyrians and Babylonians) . The Sumerians. Wikipedia notes that the Sumerian religion refers to the mythology, pantheon, rites and cosmology of the Sumerian civilization, further stating: Laurence Gardner points out:

Plimpton 322 The Plimpton 322 tablet. Plimpton 322 is a Babylonian clay tablet, notable as containing an example of Babylonian mathematics. It has number 322 in the G.A. This table lists what are now called Pythagorean triples, i.e., integers a, b, c satisfying . Although the tablet was interpreted in the past as a trigonometric table, more recently published work sees this as anachronistic, and gives it a different function.[2] For readable popular treatments of this tablet see Robson (2002) or, more briefly, Conway & Guy (1996). Provenance and dating[edit] Plimpton 322 is partly broken, approximately 13 cm wide, 9 cm tall, and 2 cm thick. The tablet is believed to have been written about 1800 BC, based in part on the style of handwriting used for its cuneiform script: Robson (2002) writes that this handwriting "is typical of documents from southern Iraq of 4000–3500 years ago."

The Chaldean Magi: A Library of Ancient Sources | The Dying God Made famous by the account of the New Testament, by which the were said to have followed a start to the birth of the Christian Messiah, the Magi were priests of the Persian empire, who were renowned throughout antiquity for their knowledge of magic, astrology and alchemy. Thus, our own word for magic refers to the occult arts of the Magi In truth, though, the Magi known to the Greek and Roman world, were not the same as the official priests of the Persian religion of Zoroastrianism, said to be founded by Zoroaster. For, when we compare the ideas that were attributed to the Magi by ancient writers, we find that they differed widely from what we know of the mainstream version of the religion, as found in its sacred scriptures, the Avesta. Rather, it would appear that the Greeks had come into contact, not with priests of Zoroastrianism, but the notorious Magussaeans of Asia Minor, in what is now Turkey. With Cyrus came the settlement of many Medes and Persians accompanied by their Magi.
