Excerpts:

This is one of the oldest stories known to mankind, first written down by the ancient Sumerians thousands of years ago. It is receiving renewed interest from modern researchers exploring the origins of mankind, the earth, and the solar system.

The story reveals how the planets became aligned, how a cosmic catastrophe affected the earth, how mankind came upon the scene, and how the "gods" played a role in all of it. Includes the epic poem's English translation, parallels in Hebrew literature, the date and origin of the Babylonian creation legends, and more.

Includes Other Accounts of Creation, an Assyrian "Tower of Babel" story, and supplementary texts showing the actual cuneiform tablets.

The Enuma Elish is receiving renewed interest from modern researchers delving into the origins of mankind, the earth, and the solar system. Over the centuries a copy ended up in the library at Nineveh in the 7th century B.C., and was uncovered by archaelogists in teh late 1800s. Written in cuneiform text and preserved on seven clay tablets, the entire story was called "The Seven Tablets fo Creation." After being translated, the story revealed how the planets became aligned, how a cosmic catastrophe affected the earth, how mankind came upon the scene, and how the 'gods' played a role in all of it.
