Discover the real story of human evolution as told more than 4,000 years ago. The cuneiform clay tablets of Enuma elish were found in the nineteenth century under the ruins of Ninevah and Babylon in the sands of the Middle East. They reveal the first story of human evolution, a story of the evolution of gods, evolution of their genealogy, and the progress of human societies. Myth is a story told to bring order and meaning to life, regardless of how fanciful or silly it may seem if taken literally. In reading the myth of Enuma elish, the story sounds quite incomprehensible, but if we utilize our logic, we can read between the lines to detect the real life of that time. So prepare yourself for the world of antiquity in Mesopotamia. For in this book, you will become acquainted with the thinking and reasoning of that ancient time. You will learn about the political, religious, geographical, historical and social conditions, and ways of life that seem most strange to us now.
