    Wrong again.
    Like I said: he didn't translate he invented "translations".
    I.e. those texts do NOT say what he claimed they do.

    How about people who actually know how to translate Sumerian?
    How about non-crank archaeologists?
    I note that, despite your earlier claim "Many think differently and has supported his claims" YOU haven't bothered to name names.
    I wonder why that is. (Actually I don't wonder at all).

    Sitchin knew how to do so .

    So archaeologists that fit your idea of true archaeology , non-cranks , or old thinking ; only matter .

    I wonder the same with you .

    That would be a lie: please link me to one qualified Sumerian translator who agrees with him.

    How about archaeologists who ARE archaeologists, rather than amateurs?

    So what?
    1) That's over a decade old as news - and there's no follow-up to say if the report is correct or not.
    2) It doesn't - in any way - hint at (let alone support) the claims that Gilgamesh was anything other than human.
    It's also somewhat telling that Fassbinder's organisation (as named in that article) doesn't even mention such a discovery on their web page.
    (Two years later there's this: But if this building is the grave of the famous King Gilgamesh as it was described by the Epic of Gilgamesh it must remain speculative.).

    Paul Von Ward and C. L. Turnage.

    Your translators ?

    Perhaps you didn't notice that I asked for qualified translators - not dilettantes.
    Ward is a cosmologist (with no mention whatsoever of ancient languages on his CV) and Turnage appears to have no qualifications whatsoever.
    In fact her bio says she "studied over 300 translations (not "original documents") which implies that she didn't do the translations at all, so why you list her as a "qualified translator" I have no idea.

    What?
    The BBC report is dated 2003.
    Fassbinder's paper (dated 2005) does not remotely claim that it was Gilgamesh's tomb.
    And NEITHER source supports "aliens".

    For me: Michael Heiser, Ronald H. Fritze and Roger W. Wescott. Can't find anything on Chris White's qualifications.

    Well who are your translators ?

    Aliens are irrelevant.

    Listed.

    It's in my f*cking post.

    Really?
    So how is it supposed to support your claims?
    Or do you simply think that because Gilgamesh (may have -still to be ascertained) actually existed that means the entire Epic of... is true?
    Does this mean that the entire Bible is also factual given that we know Pontius Pilate was real?

    It's your head in the sand my dear friend, as this forum aptly recognises now, and your continued denying of facts that oppose your beliefs and sensitivities, just reflects on your own credibility, and as many others have now noted, your usual and continued trolling.
    You have a good day!

    I believe nothing does not exist.

    Just as in mathematics when operating with zero, the zero is disregarded because there is NOTHING to operate with! Nothing can not exist.
