Aha! Awesome!

This just hit me: Did you pick your creative pseudonym from Babylonian myth, namely Tiamat's son and champion, Kingu?
Kingu Omega commented on April 28, 2014 12:19pm
actually i snitched the name kingu from the sumerian writings. the story is much older but quite similar.
kingu (the moon) was the son of tiamat (the earth)... to keep a long story short i was reading a lot of sitchin and those kind of stuff when i picked this pseudonym. at the end i just thought it would be a pretty cool name for a guy that worked through the day and was creating his art at nighttime, going to sleep in the morning when the last moonshine hits the roofs. than i found the mask and kingu omega (the last moon) was born.

Yeah. I knew the Babylonian version, but not the Sumerian. The Babylonians conquered the Sumerians and, much like the Greek-Roman cultural exchange centuries later, the conquerors were in turn conquered by the people they had invaded. When you read the Sumerian and Babylonian creation myths side by side, they're pretty much the same.

If you want to delve further into the subject sometime, I recommend three books: "Inanna: Queen of Heaven and Earth" by Diane Wolkstein and Samuel Noah Kramer, "Sumerian Mythology" by Samuel Noah Kramer and "The Babylonian Genesis" by Alexander Heidel. Fascinating and informative reads.

indeed... history reapeats itself over and over again, the conquerors adopt the valuable from the conquered and erase (or hide) whatever seams to be unsuitable for their goals.
and there we have it! countless believes pointing fingers on each other although they are based on the very same thing. one question remains. would we still believe if we knew? ...am i getting off the point here? anyway, i just had the deep demand to write this. thanks for the book advice as well john.

You're welcome ;)

Would we still believe if we knew? Now that's an interesting question.
