from The Electronic Text Corpus of Sumerian Literature
Sumerian and Acadian religion are much older than the religion of the Babylonians (most of the religion of the Babylonians was taken over from the Sumerians and Acadians). the Babylonian religion later on was taken over by the Jews and afterwards also by Christianity and the Moslems.
The root of all Semitic nations and their languages are also from Sumerian origin.
Ancients knew the existence of all planets
Around 10,000 B.C., many hunter-gatherers living along the coastal plains of modern Syria and Israel and in the valleys and hills near the Zagros Mountains between Iran and Iraq began to develop special strategies that led to a transformation in the human community.
Sumerian myth: human beings were created to do the manual labour the gods were unwilling to do for themselves.
The principle of retaliation ("an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth") was fundamental.

Millions of accounts and tens of thousands of shell companies are used to launder and recycle dollars from the hidden face of the world economy. They take advantage of the existence of 250 free zones and tax havens, 95% of which are former British, French, Spanish, Dutch or US colonies or concessions that remain dependent on the former colonial powers.
