Discovered over the years by scholars in numerous regions in ancient Mesopotamia, copies of what is believed to be a single manuscript – referred to as the Sumerian King’s List – detail how in the distant past, our planet was ruled by eight mysterious kings for an amazing period of 241,000 years.
The list even says that these rulers ‘descended from heaven’.
THE LIST OF THE SUMERIAN KING
It tells an incredible story that many find hard to believe. Known as the Sumerian King List, this ancient manuscript details how in the distant past, our planet was ruled by eight mysterious kings during an astonishing 241,000 years.
“… After royalty descended from heaven, royalty was in Eridug. In Eridug, Alulim became king; He ruled for 28800 years. Alaljar ruled for 36,000 years. 2 kings; they governed for 64,800 years …
“… In 5 cities 8 kings; they ruled for 241,200 years. Then, the flood spread … “that is written in the first part of the King Sumerian List. But how is it possible that eight kings ruled the Earth for 241,000 years?
EXPERTS BELIEVE THAT THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE:
The list combines prehistoric and “mythological” dynastic rulers, who enjoyed unlikely reigns with historically more plausible dynasties.
In other words, scholars tell us that some things written on the list of Sumerian kings are correct, while others, like improbable reigns, simply can not be.
Furthermore, the Sumerian King’s List not only tells us how long these kings ruled on Earth, but specifically says that these eight kings ‘descended from heaven’, after which they ruled for a surprisingly long period.
Interestingly, the list details how these eight kings met their end during the Great Flood that swept the Earth.
Do these ancient texts prove that the Earth was ruled by ancient astronauts for 241,000 years? Or, as the scholars say, does the Sumerian king list a mixture of historical records?
It is worth noting that the first listed ruler whose historicity has been archaeologically verified is Enmebaragesi de Kish, ca. 2600 BC.
