SUMERIAN FLOOD STORY CUNEIFORM TABLET museum replica

Quartzite-limestone composite, 4 x 5 inches( 10 x 12.5 cm) x half inch thickness( 10 cm) With description. Museum replica Sumerian Flood Story. Ca. 1740 B.C. Old Babylonian period. Mesopotamia, Ur. Inscription in Old Sumerian Cuneiform. Discovered in the late 1920s by renowned British archaeologist C. Leonard Woolley. The tablet was recovered from beneath the ancient site of Ur in thick layers of water-laid clay dated to several thousand years old. Woolley believed the tablet to be direct evidence of the Great Flood recorded in both Mesopotamian narratives and the Bible The earliest account of the Great Flood ever found. The tablet relates how the Sumerian god Enlil attempts to destroy humanity by means of a watery deluge. The clamour and pride ... moreof humanity proves too much for Enlil, who decides to put an end to it. The lesser gods and goddesses lament this decision and the crafty earth god Enki takes action and reveals the coming disaster to a king named Ziusudra whom he instructs to build a boat to save his family. And thus Ziusudra survives the flood: All the destructive winds and gales were present, The storm swept over the capitals. After the storm had swept the country for seven days and seven nights. And the destructive wind had rocked the huge boat in the high water, The Sun came out. Illuminating the earth and the sky. Ziusudra made an opening in the huge boat, And the Sun with its rays entered the huge boat. The king Ziusudra Prostrated himself before the sun god; The king slaughtered a large number of bulls and sheep. Ziusudra saves the seed of humanity and in return is given the gift of immortality and settled in far-off Dilmun. No longer a Biblical myth. 21st century scientists have determined the sudden collapse of the Canadian Ice Sheet around 6,000 BC single-handedly responsible for the historical Great

The tablet relates how the Sumerian ... moregod Enlil attempts to destroy humanity by means of a watery deluge. The clamour and pride of humanity proves too much for Enlil. Who decides to put an end to it. The lesser gods and goddesses lament this calamitous decision and the crafty earth god Enki takes it upon himself to reveal the coming disaster to a ruler named Ziusudra whom he instructs to build a boat to save"the seed of humanity" along with a selection of animals. And thus Ziusudra survives to tell the tale: All the destructive winds and gales were present, The storm swept over the capitals. After the storm had swept the country for seven days and seven nights. And the destructive wind had rocked the huge boat in the high water, The Sun came out. Illuminating the earth and the sky. Ziusudra made an opening in the huge boat, And the Sun with its rays entered the huge boat. The king Ziusudra Prostrated himself before the sun god; The king slaughtered a large number of bulls and sheep. Ziusudra saves humanity and in return is given the gift of immortality and settled in far-off Dilmun. No longer a Biblical myth.
