The Mesopotamian area was, until recent times, thought of as being the  Cradle
of Civilization and home of the biblical Adam and Eve.  The Chaldeans feature pro-
minently among the peoples of those parts who claimed to have received their in-
structions in such subjects as astronomy, metaphysics and ethics from a strange,
foreign source.

Berossus, a Babylonian priest of the thirteenth century BC, rendered the following
account of the early history of those parts:

"At first they led a somewhat wretched existence and lived without rule, after
the manner of beasts.

But, in the first year, appeared a monster endowned with human reason,
named Oannes, who rose from out of the Erythaean sea, at the point where
it borders Babylonia.

He had the whole body of a fish, but above his fish's head he had another
head which was that of a man, and human feet emerged from beneath his
fish's tail; he had a human voice, and his image is preserved to this day.

He passed the day in the midst of men without taking food; he taught them
the use of letters, sciences and arts of all kinds, and rules for the founding
of cities, and the construction of temples, the principles of land and surveying;
he showed them how to sow and reap; he gave them all that contributes
to the comforts of life. 

Since that time, nothing excellent has been invented."
