    Today there exists many alternative theories that aim to explain mankind’s speedy evolution. The Ancient Astronaut Theory is perhaps one of the most controversial of the bunch. This theory takes researchers back in time to the cradle of civilization in the Middle-East, the ancient land of Mesopotamia. The Sumerian Cuneiform tablets, uncovered in the 17th century, provide modern man with a new understanding of our history. This lost knowledge has been slow to make its way into mainstream thought and is just now beginning to air on television on both the History and Discovery Channels. Accurately decoding the complicated language of the past has taken archaeologists many decades, but fortunately today these ancient scriptures have come to light for all the public to view.

  • Sumerian Cuneiform Tablets show Evidence of Ancient Anunnaki Gods

    The Sumerians had amazing knowledge of the solar system, and of their GODS coming down to Earth. They also tell of another being that they described in our terms as "Android Beings". The Sumerians Artifacts tell us that the Anunnaki had "helpers" that often performed such tasks as flying their craft , or helping with miscellaneous needs. The Sumerians directly explain that these "Helpers" were not alive, but acted as so... Not only did they make figurines of the visitors, they also wrote down in Cuneiform text (on stone) what took place during the encounters with these "Anunnaki". Their are many stories where Emissaries of GOD helped out in one way or another.

  • The Secret Ancient Bloodline that Dates to Back to Sumeria [FULL VIDEO]

    This video goes back to the beginning of this bloodline 4,000 years ago in Mesopotamia. It ties the Old Testament to its earlier influences in Sumer, relating the accounts in Genesis to their original Mesopotamian sources and showing how stories ranging from Adam & Eve's Garden of Eden and Cain & Abel to Noah's Flood have their own "genesis" in the much older stories of the Anunnaki taken from the remarkable Sumerian cuneiform tablets that have only been uncovered within the past hundred years. Along the way, the remarkable story of Moses and his roots in Egypt are told for the very first time, and integrated into a remarkable saga that spans the last 6,000 years. The video is able to trace and lay out an actual Messianic Grail bloodline from Adam and Eve all the way to the House of David...

  • The Epic Of Gilgamesh In Sumerian

    The EPIC OF GILGAMESH is the earliest great work of literature that we know of, and was first written down by the Sumerians around 2100 B.C. Ancient Sumer was the land that lay between the two rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates, in Mesopotamia. The language that the Sumerians spoke was unrelated to the Semitic languages of their neighbors the Akkadians and Babylonians, and it was written in a syllabary (a kind of alphabet) called "cuneiform". By 2000 B.C., the language of Sumer had almost completely died out and was used only by scholars (like Latin is today). No one knows how it was pronounced because it has not been heard in 4000 years. What you hear in this video are a few of the opening lines of part of the epic poem, accompanied only by a long-neck, three-string, Sumerian lute known ...

Ancient Sumer was the land that lay between the two rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates, in Mesopotamia. The language that the Sumerians spoke was unrelated to the Semitic languages of their neighbors the Akkadians and Babylonians, and it was written in a syllabary (a kind of alphabet) called "cuneiform".

What you hear in this video are a few of the opening lines of part of the epic poem, accompanied only by a long-neck, three-string, Sumerian lute known as a "gish-gu-di". The instrument is tuned to G - G - D, and although it is similar to other long neck lutes still in use today (the tar, the setar, the saz, etc.) the modern instruments are low tension and strung with fine steel wire. The ancient long neck lutes (such as the Egyptian "nefer") were strung with gut and behaved slightly differently. The short-neck lute known as the "oud" is strung with gut/nylon, and its sound has much in common with the ancient long-neck lute although the oud is not a fretted instrument and its strings are much shorter (about 25 inches or 63 cm) as compared to 32 inches (82 cm) on a long-neck instrument. For anyone interested in these lutes, I highly recommend THE ARCHAEOMUSICOLOGY OF THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST by Professor Richard Dumbrill. The location for this performance is the courtyard of Nebuchadnezzar's palace in Babylon. The piece is four minutes long and is intended only as a taste of what the music of ancient Sumer might have sounded like.

© CLAUDIO MORTINI ** L'atmosfera di Bettona, comune umbro in provincia di Perugia, ci riporta indietro di molti secoli, ma allo stesso tempo ci immerge in un'ospitalità viva e colorita, dalla solarità contagiosa. Le sue radici lontane sono testimoniate dal nome stesso, che significa probabilmente "paese degli antichi", e il profumo del passato è una presenza affascinante che invade ogni angolo del borgo, ogni pietra delle mura e ogni ciottolo delle strade. Popolata da poco più di seicento abitati nel borgo e 4 mila nel comune, la cittadina si colloca al confine nordorientale dei Monti Martani, ed è compresa a ragione tra i Borghi più belli d'Italia. Non solo il paese, ma anche la cornice che l'abbraccia è di una bellezza stupefacente: dal colle su cui Bettona si erge si può godere di un panorama splendido su gran parte dell'Umbria, da Perugia ad Assisi, fino alla pittoresca Spello, in un tripudio di verdi teneri e coltivazioni ondeggianti nel vento. Tra gli esemplari più antichi dell'architettura paesana c'è la Chiesa di San Crispolto, fatta erigere da un gruppo di monaci benedettini all'inizio del Duecento per custodire le spoglie del primo vescovo e martire umbro, tuttora patrono di Bettona. La pianta è a croce latina, e la facciata che si può ammirare oggi è di epoca ottocentesca. Soltanto la torre campanaria cuspidata, in stile romanico, appartiene all'edificio originario. Del XIII secolo è anche l'Oratorio di Sant'Andrea, più volte modificato nel corso dei secoli ma tuttora ricco di fascino: il soffitto a cassettoni, di fattura pregiata, è del XVI secolo, l'altare risale al Settecento ed è del 1394 il ciclo di affreschi di scuola giottesca che rappresenta la Passione di Cristo. Ma l'edificio di culto più affascinante è certamente la Collegiata di Santa Maria Maggiore, risalente ai primi anni del Cristianesimo, ampliata e nuovamente consacrata nel 1225, per poi essere restaurata secondo il tipico stile neoclassico tra il 1803 e il 1816. Soltanto la cappella ci rimanda al primo impianto romano-gotico, mentre ben più recenti sono i dipinti nell'abside, realizzati dal futurista Gerardo Dottori nel 1939. Ammirevole l'altare principale, con un ciborio a forma di tempietto, l'abside e le finestre con i vetri istoriati. La religiosità dell'antico borgo è sempre stata forte e autentica, ma a Bettona ci sono anche architetture civili di indiscutibile valore. Da vedere il Palazzetto del Podestà del 1371, che attualmente ospita la Pinacoteca Comunale, l'ottocentesco Palazzo Biancalana che presto ospiterà il Museo Archeologico, e infine il Palazzo Baglioni, in cui trascorse i suoi ultimi giorni il condottiero Malatesta IV Baglioni, la cui famiglia governò il paese fino al XVII secolo. Spingendosi un poco al di fuori del centro ci si imbatte nella mole grandiosa della Villa del Boccaglione, progettata nel Settecento dal Piermarini, e nella piccola chiesa romanica di San Quirico. Dell'anno Mille è la Badia di San Crispoldo, fondata dai monaci benedettini e oggi trasformata in residenza privata. Se Bettona fa innamorare i turisti nelle giornate più tranquille dell'anno, figurarsi nei momenti di festa più allegri, quando le stradicciole del borgo sono brulicanti di visitatori e tutto testimonia le tradizioni accattivanti del paese. Tra gli appuntamenti più attesi c'è il Festival Internazionale del Cavallo e la Sagra dello Sport, la prima metà di luglio, con stand gastronomici a disposizione dei palati più esigenti, concerti musicali, serate danzanti e gare equestri a livello nazionale e internazionale. Dalla fine di luglio alla prima settimana di agosto la protagonista della festa diventa l'oca arrosto, in occasione della Sagra dell'Oca Arrosto, ma i piatti deliziosi che si possono degustare sono davvero innumerevoli, accompagnati da un olio d'oliva purissimo e il buon vino delle cantine locali. Per salutare l'estate che se ne va c'è la manifestazione settembrina Tuttinfesta, con musica, buon cibo e spettacoli di vario tipo all'insegna dell'allegria.
