During a business trip to Dhi Qar in 2016, Iraqi Transport Minister Kazim Finjan made a shocking statement. He claims that the Sumerians had their spaceports and actively traveled around the solar system.
The Sumerians were an advanced civilization that existed between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in Mesopotamia about 7,000 years ago, eventually becoming Babylonia, and are now located in Iraq and Syria.
The Sumerian pyramids are not inferior in architecture to the Egyptian pyramids. Several explanations have been proposed for the function of the ziggurat (a monumental building built in ancient Mesopotamia), including the curiosity of urologists. No one expected the official to make such a remark.
A ziggurat is a large structure built in ancient Mesopotamia to bring the temple closer to the heavens. According to the Mesopotamians, these pyramid temples are considered a link between heaven and earth.
The Sumerians worshiped a variety of gods. They prayed to Anu (sky god), Enki (god of water, knowledge, mischief, crafts, and creation), Enlil (Lord Wind), Inanna (Queen of Heaven), Utu (sun god), and Sin (sun god) (moon-god).
They created the wheel, cuneiform script, arithmetic, geometry, irrigation, saws and other tools, sandals, chariots, harpoons, beer, and more. Finjan believes that the first airports and spaceship platforms were built in the ancient cities of Eridu and Ur around 7,000 years ago.
Unfortunately, the minister did not explain where the Sumerians got such technology and why we couldn’t find evidence of their existence.
While visiting the Iraqi Museum in Baghdad’s Sumerian wing, Professor Kamal Aziz Ketuly saw three Sumerian clay tablets with cuneiform writing and illustrations dating to around 3000 BC. He claims to have found heliocentric representations of the solar system on one of the tablets.
Moreover, “The Mesopotamians used a month and year calendar dating back to 3000 BC, indicating that the moon was explored at this early age.” In ancient Mesopotamia, “the five planets visible to the naked eye and the moon, sun, stars, and other celestial phenomena were all known and studied.” Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are related planets.
Scientists have proposed several theories to explain how multi-tier temples came into existence. Since it is a temple built for the gods, it should be kept in good condition for as long as possible. As a result, each successive tier was built on top of the previous one.
The Sumerians showed their aspirations for a higher kingdom. The number of platforms may match any number of well-known figures. It is important to remember that Lower Mesopotamia did not have woods and minerals. The Sumerians were busy with merchants, so it’s difficult to say where the material for a full-fledged spacecraft came from.
The truth will remain hidden under the veil of time. If the Sumerians had conquered space, they would have left the planet a long time ago.
