Over the centuries, the religious knowledge became encoded into the Pyramid Texts and numerous other myths and legends. But after several thousands years the original meaning of these myths was lost.

These, I submit, are not the words of the scientist or the scholar, but of a religious prophet expounding to reveal the truth, and religion by definition rests upon faith, not proof, it is by definition not scientific. Can we really wonder, then, why so many scientists and scholars will not ...

... texts, nor is Sargon of Akkad, nor the legendary Dudiya of Assur." (p . 11) [1 ] Matthiae also discusses Ebla's administration, trade and religious life as revealed in the tablets (pp. 178-189). The discussion of the religion of Ebla is rather brief, because of the comparative paucity of religious texts ... so far. This is regrettable, because the tablets refer occasionally to the goddess Ishtar (listing her as equivalent to the Sumerian Inanna in the lexical texts); in view of the identification of Ishtar with the planet Venus and its relevance to Velikovsky's reconstruction of ancient global catastrophes, it is to be hoped that when the texts are fully ...
