Iraq History of Eden and the World’s First Civilizations

World's Earliest Civilization Documentary on the World's First Civilizations in Iraq

History of Eden

Mesopotamia, Suma, Eden, Satan, Abraham, the Flood, the beginnings of written language, Gilgamesh was a king of Uruk, Mesopotamia, who lived between 2800 and 2500 BC. The history of Iraq is the history of “God” for half of the world. This is a remarkable portrait of ancient civilizations and lands which were once so fertile where early people gathered around water to form the first civilizations. Civilizations which were the first to use up the natural resources and move on. The pattern seems to have continued throughout history from Egypt to Peru.
The only difference today is that there is nowhere to go once we deplete the forests around us. We can’t pack up and leave our pyramids and move on.
An altogether look at the beginnings of civilization and how it was first recorded. Gilgamesh was the first God to be written down and the Bible begins at the time when writing begins. Before that there was the oral tradition and art which could illustrate that tradition.

Miscellaneous Links to Friends

We are beginning a new links page to link to web people we know who labor over websites and need a link. That pure and simple. Sometimes seemingly off topic places who support us in some way and we’d like to support with a link. This page will grow as writers, poets, artists and others show up.
