Mesopotamia Religion

Extract from Anthology of Opinions 3;, a thousand gods of the male gods and of the female gods of them of the land of Hatti, together with a thousand gods of the male gods and of the female gods of them of the land of Egypt,  are with me as witnesses hearing these words:

When we are talking about the origination of opinion’s as it relates to our way of seeing the world around us.  Then I believe it is important to go to the source of opinions the land of the gods ancient Sumeria.  The lands between the Euphrates Rivers and the Tigris rivers the “Cradle of Civilization”.

When the nomadic peoples started forming city states in ancient Mesopotamian each city had its own monarchy as well as a from of democracy.   They were called city states.  Prior to 3500 BC the priests ruled each city.  Around 3000 BC Kings took over control from the priests  and claimed “Divine Inheritance”.  Something we see today around the world.

So religion became central in the thinking of the common person at it was strictly governed it became a normalized behavior to believe in mysticism of the gods.

The Ancient Mesopotamian believed that the divine affected every aspect of human life.  They were polytheistic worshiping seven core gods with thousands (3000) minor gods.

Each city, whether Sumerian, Akkadian, Babylonian or Assyrian, had its own patron god or goddess.  Through each era or culture each had different expressions and interpretations of godsFor example Marduk, Babylons god was known as Enki or Ea in Sumer.

Clay tablets found in archaeological excavations describe the cosmology, mythology and religious practices and observations of the time. Some Mesopotamian myths are reflected in Biblical stories the* Garden of Eden, the Flood, the Creation and the Tower of Babel. As the world’s oldest religion, Mesopotamian beliefs influenced the monotheistic religions that came after, Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Garden of Eden, the Flood, the Creation and the Tower of Babel. The ancient Semitic texts of creation starts out,  “he created” this is a male pronoun devoid of any mythology.  They were talking about man’s nature not so much about person places or things.  People places or things were used as a ref  point of mans behavior.

In early Mesopotamia, priests were the initial rulers as all authority came from the god. Priests then were both representative of the god and mediator between the god and the people. Later, the secular power was established in a king, although kings also had specific religious duties. Kings ruled by the god’s favor and so were imbued with a semi-divine authority. Kings, priests and priestesses were the most important people in Mesopotamian society.

Ancient Mesopotamia covered and area 300 miles long and about 150 miles wide between the two rivers, the Euphrates and the Tigris rivers that flowed into the Persian Gulf which was known as the* Red Sea back in the day.

Red Sea It was called the Red Sea by virtue the ancient Arabian Bedouins that livid along the Arabian coast sold their children as slaves into Ancient Mesopotamia to work on the temples and other projects as traded goods.

If you multiply 300 mi x 150 mi you get 45,000 square miles.  Divide that by 3000 gods and goddesses conservatively you come up with 15 opinions pre square mile.  Then you have to add the seven major gods and their interpretations.

Seven days a week your enslaved to the ablutions of the priests  which later the priests became kings.  One of the most famous priest-kings was* Gilgamesh of Uruk, who ruled sometime between 2800 or 2500 BC.

* Gilgamesh of Uruk after he died he goes to rise in Sumerian mythology as a god concerning  creation, the flood and such.   Which the Bible walks hand in hand.

What happens to a human when you have 8 major opinions controlling your life everyday? Be it either a king or a priest or a king/priest by divine authority.

In the Molecular structures of organisms, when they are born they have an inherited RNA expression that something has to take care of  them.  It has been ingrained in its DNA since time began.   The organism will grow for awhile but if it is not given an outside stimulus it will become stationary.  Overtime it will become psychotic in nature and eventually decay.  To prevent chaos and decay  you introduce another stimulus and it, the organism, proceed’s to grow for another period of time.

Opinions operate in this realm and they also operate in the realm of Thermodynamics of  Heat transfer to cold.  An opinion is born and like a fire it starts out small reaches its peak and then dies out.  Unless you keep feeding it.

Sumerian Temple Song;

Temple hymn 21

The hymn is dedicated to the temple of Bau in the Divine City

1. Urukug shrine which causes the seed to come forth, belonging to the holy An, called by a god name.
The divine city, the shrine where the sprouts of all are given, the city of divine An, the
primordial word that is real.
In Sumerian: uru – ku es numun – i – i an – ku – ga mu – du – ga sa – a

2. Within you is the river of ordeal which vindicates the just man
Within you are the irreal that call out and which impedes the living man
In Sumerian: sa – zu i – lu – ru – gu lu – zi dadag – de

3. House of widespread counsel, storehouse which eternally possesses silver and lapis lazuli
An assembly of illuminating speech with divine illuminations inside that are precious like
conch shells
In Sumerian: e – galga – su erin – ku za – gin – na gi – sa – se ak – a

4. Etarsirsir from which decision and mes come forth, where the man greets the goddess
The temple, where divine songs are given, where the transcendental music, that discloses
the great truths are given and where the truths surround greet feet of Bau

   In Sumerian: e – tar – sir – sir es – bar me – i – i me – s kiri su – gal

           BAU Akkadian goddesses healing.

Opinions of gods collected tithes from the common person to build their temples, collected property tax to build other endeavors.   Opinions of gods creates babble and people become psychotic.  So sing the songs of BAU.

I believe in the Spirit of Life within me and I saved myself from the Babel of other opinions. I believe in the thought of Quantum Physics that tells me there is a particle of Light within me that sustains my life.  A thought that is celibate from the world of opinions.
