Civilizations before history: Ancient Sume and the Sumerian King list

  • Mahalingam Santhri N

    According to me the interpretation of the age of the kings as per king’s list to be done as follows: pre flood years given should be interpreted as days. So According to me it is simply wrong interpretation of the ancient language. The word in that language meant a day and not a year. Assuming that their year consisted of 360 days we get the following result. We get dividing by 360, the years given in the Sumerian Kings list we get what the ancient text meant as below:

    After the kingdom descended from heaven the kingship was in eridug. In Eridug , Alulim became king; he ruled for 80 years. Alaljar ruled for 100 years. 2 kings; they ruled for 180 years.

    The early list names eight kings with a total of 241,200 (about 726) years from the time when kingship “descended from heaven” to the time when “the Flood” swept over the land and once more “the kingship was lowered from heaven” after the Flood.

    The flood is to be assumed as cosmic flood and the years to be reckoned based on the number of months in year when they landed on earth. It may vary from about four months on wards. When the earth was formed about 4.5 billion years ago, one year had about four months.
