WE PICK up the story of Noah just before the waters of the Flood sweep over the land. We compare the biblical account of the Flood with the Mesopotamian epics featuring Atra-Hasis, Utnapishtim, and Ziusudra. Was Noah a Sumerian king? And why, after the Flood, was Noah so angry with Ham that he cursed Ham's son, Canaan?
Further reading: See Peter Goodgame's intriguing studies The Giza Discovery, in which Peter equates the biblical Nimrod with the Sumerian king Enmerkar and the first Egyptian pharaoh, Narmer, and then makes the case that this person is to be identified as the Egyptian god Osiris. We also recommend Peter's excellent essay Against World Powers: A Study of the Judeo-Christian Struggle in History and Prophecy, which explains the Genesis 6 event as one battle in the ongoing rebellion against Yahweh by members of the Divine Council. These will factor into our discussion next week of the Tower of Babel incident.

Enki dreamed Galzu spoke “‘Into your hands Fate take, for the Earthlings the Earth inherit. Summon your son Ziusudra, without breaking the oath [swearing not to tell Earthlings] to him the coming calamity reveal. A boat that the watery avalanche can withstand, a submersible one, to build him tell, the likes of which on this tablet to you I am showing. Let him in it save himself and his kinfolk and the seed of all that is useful, be it plant or animal, also take. That is the will of the Creator of All.‘”
Enki woke and pondered his dream. He stepped out of bed and kicked an actual physical tablet that now appeared next to his bed. The tablet showed how to build a submersible craft in which Ziusudra and his followers could ride out the deluge. Enki searched his home and grounds for Galzu but didn’t find him. None except Enki (in the dream) had seen Galzu. Sitchin termed the appearance of the tablet–a physical object–after Enki’s dream encounter with Galzu, a representative of a higher power- a twightlight zone miracle.
Enki, Chief Scientist for the Nibiran Goldmining Expedition to Earth needed to tame Gilgamesh, King of Uruk, before he created an Earthling rebellion in reaction to the King. Gilgamesh insisted on sex with brides before their grooms could couple with them.
So Enki created ENKIDU, an android, to tame Gilgamesh and arranged for the tantric practitioner, SHAMHAT to tame Enkidu. Gilgamesh and Enkidu fought, then became best friends.
Gilgamesh went with Enkidu to the rocketpad at Baalbek to plead with the gods for a rocket to Nibiru for immortality he thought they enjoyed.
Some 13,000 years ago, Enki, Chief Scientist for the Goldmining Expedition from the planet Nibiru to Earth, lusted for BATANASH wife of LU-MACH, his Workmaster of Earthlings in Edin (Iraq).
“On the roof of a dwelling where Batanash was bathing, Enki by her loins took hold, he kissed her, his semen into her womb he poured.” From this encounter, she bore Ziusudra (Noah). [Sitchin, Z., 2002, The Lost Book of Enki: 204]
