People talk a lot about the Sumerians as being the first human civilisation on earth. This concept is pretty much accepted by all experts as being true.

The details, however, are not always gone in to properly, to the point where people understand the extent to which Sumerian culture is still unexplained by mainstream science.

I'd like to open it up a little bit...

Firstly, writing is a true Sumerian first. Etymologists have found no loan words and no evidence of any prior writing system. The fact is that a writing system must be developed over time and doesn't just spring into existence.(www.omniglot.com/writing/sumerian.htm)

Sumer also came up with the first schools, the first bicameral congress, the first historian, the first “farmer’s almanac’’, the first cosmogony and cosmology, the first proverbs and sayings, the first literary debates, the first library, the first money (the silver shekel “weighed ingot”), the first taxation and the first laws.

Now how did what is considered the first civilisation, suddenly come up with all these advanced concepts that following cultures (that actually had the time to develop) couldn't even come up with? It simply doesn't make sense that they came up with these things on their own.

Not only that, but they used very advanced mathematics, and knew a lot about astronomy. In fact we still use the Sumerian's spherical astronomy (seperating a circle into 360 degrees) and the division of the heavens into three bands - the northern, central and southern regions, to this day. These concepts suddenly and inexplicably originated in Sumer.

The system of mathematics used by the Sumerians is considered by many to be more efficient than the one we use to day. They used a sexagesimal maths system.

They counted in alternating 10s and 6s, their place-digits ascended as follows: 1, 10, 60, 600, 3600, 36,000, 216,000, 2,160,000, 12,960,000. It's considered better than the base 100 system, as the base number we use, 100, is divisible by only seven integers, while the Sumerians base number, 60, is divisible by 10 integers.

This is where we get our measurement of time as well, from the sexagesimal system of the Sumerians, this is why we divide minutes in to 60 seconds each.

The Sumerians also came up with the Zodiac, still used today. However they did not use the Zodiac for monthly horoscopes. Rather, they used it to divide the 25,920 year processional cycle (the wobble of the earth) in to 12 periods of 2160 years each.

Each period was a different age represented by a symbol.

The Sumerians knew of all 12 planets (including Nibiru, obviously) most of which were only discovered by mainstream science hundreds of years later.

The Sumerians could calculate eclipse dates, and the processional cycle.

At this point I would like to say that the sumerian knowledge of both the processional cycle (which happens every 26000 years) and eclipse dates (which happen only every 7000 years) is incontrovertible proof that their civilization was not originated by humans. It had to be a far more advanced and older being with great knowledge compared to the humans.

The sumerian civilization was only around for roughly 2050 years. This is not enough time to observe a 7000 year cycle of the eclipses, let alone a 26000 year cycle of the procession of the equinox.

The only reason we are able to calculate these is with the aid of advanced physics and computer technology, which were quite obviously unavailable to the ancient Sumerians...
