The Identity of the Sumerians As Seen In Ancient Art
I would like to welcome everyone to the Simon Necronomicon’s Info Page. If thisi s your first time here, please review some of our previous articles first. Welcome!
I thought that I would take a little time to discuss the great Sumerian fraud that is going on in the feild of anthropology and the occult community. It seems that there is a growing population that is trying to hide the identity of the ancient Sumerians. We have to remember that the Sumerians called themselves the Sag-giga meaning the “black-headed ones.” However, it has become popular for some occultist and anthropologists to use artifacts from the “Mesopotamian period” in describing the Sumerian Civilization. You would think that racism would NOT find its way into such studies as the occult, but on some levels it has. I spoke about this briefly in our discussion about the ARRA Sign:
The term Aryan is derived from the Sanskrit term arya meaning “noble” or “spiritual.” This term had nothing to due with physical characteristics as it is often misunderstood to represent. The following references are useful in further illustrating this point;
“(History of Ethiopia, Vol. I., Preface, by Sir E. A. Wallis Budge.) In addition Budge notes that, “Homer and Herodotus call all the peoples of the Sudan, Egypt, Arabia, Palestine and Western Asia and India Ethiopians.” (Ibid., p. 2.) Herodotus wrote in his celebrated History that both the Western Ethiopians, who lived in Africa, and the Eastern Ethiopians who dwelled in India, were black in complexion, but that the Africans had curly hair, while the Indians were straight-haired.”
“Before the Chaldean rule in Mesopotamia, there were the empires of the Sumerians, Akkadians, Babylonians and Assyrians. The earliest civilization of Mesopotamia was that of the Sumerians. They are designated in the Assyrio-Babylonian inscriptions as the black-heads or black-faced people, and they are shown on the monuments as beardless and with shaven heads. This easily distinguishes them from the Semitic Babylonians, who are shown with beards and long hair. From the myths and traditions of the Babylonians we learn that their culture came originally from the south. Sir Henry Rawlinson concluded from this and other evidence that the first civilized inhabitants of Sumer and Akkad were immigrants from the African Ethiopia. John D. Baldwin, the American Orientalist, on the other hand, claims that since ancient Arabia was also known as Ethiopia, they could have just as well come from that country. These theories are rejected by Dr. II. R. Hall, of the Dept. Of Egyptian & Assyrian Antiquities of the British Museum, who contends that Mesopotamia was civilized by a migration from India? “The ethnic type of the Sumerians, so strongly marked in their statues and reliefs,” says Dr. Hall, “was as different from those of the races which surrounded them as was their language from those of the Semites, Aryans, or others; they were decidedly Indian in type. The face-type of the average Indian of today is no doubt much the same as that of his Dravidian race ancestors thousands of years ago. … And it is to this Dravidian ethnic type of India that the ancient Sumerian bears most resemblance, so far as we can judge from his monuments. … And it is by no means improbable that the Sumerians were an Indian race which passed, certainly by land, perhaps also by sea, through Persia to the valley of the Two Rivers. It was in the Indian home (perhaps the Indus valley) that we suppose for them that their culture developed. … On the way they left the seeds of their culture in Elam. … There is little doubt that India must have been one of the earliest centers of human civilization, and it seems natural to suppose that the strange un-Semitic, un-Aryan people who came from the East to civilize the West were of Indian origin, especially when we see with our own eyes how very Indian the Sumerians were in type.” (The Ancient History of the Near East, pp. 173–174, London, 1916.)”
Another interesting point to consider is how modern-day scholars try to hide the identity of these people by using images and sculptures from other periods to describe the whole history of Ancient Sumeria. An example of this can be seen by looking at the history of the United States. It has been recorded and well documented that when the Europeans came to America, there were already an existing people here. If we were to describe these people as Americans it would not be an accurate description, since these people did not call themselves American. Now imagine living 3,000 years into the future and you are doing research about the history of America, and the ancient Americans are described as having European features. British relics are discovered along the coast of South Carolina, but the question remains; who were the original people of the Americas? Many scholars would point to them as being British and what we call Native American history today, would be represented by the face of U.S. Presidents. This is the same trick that modern-day scholars use to hide the characteristics of the people who inhabited many ancient lands, Ancient Sumeria included.
Since the people of Ancient Sumeria were similar in physical type, class distinctions were made. Later, invading peoples adopted only the most benevolent terms to describe themselves by, and recreated the gods of these people in their own image.
“The ancient gods of India are shown with Ethiopian crowns on their heads. According to the Old Testament, Moses first met Jehovah during his sojourn among the Midianites, who were an Ethiopian tribe. We learn from Hellenic tradition that Zeus, king of the Grecian gods, so cherished the friendship of the Ethiopians that he traveled to their country twice a year to attend banquets. “All the gods and goddesses of Greece were black,” asserts Sir Godfrey Higgins, “at least this was the case with Jupiter, Baccus, Hercules, Apollo, Ammon. The goddesses Benum, Isis, Hecate, Diana, Juno, Metis, Ceres, Cybele were black.” (Anacalypsis, Vol. I, Book IV, Chap. I.)”
Since there are many people iin the field of anthropology and occult studies who would like to hide the imagery of some of the most ancient depictions of the Sumerian and Elamite civilizations, we will provide these as seen below:
The above image of “Lilith” is actually the original. However, the re-construction of this image has become more popular that the original. This may be due to the fact that the original (as seen above) presents a more “ethnic” view of Lilith
I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season
