It is still, largely unknown, just how colossal the great city of Ur could have once been. Ur, once the most important Sumerian city state in ancient Mesopotamia, around 3 rd millennium BC, is where the remains of the Great Ziggurat lay, and just as with the ancient city, only the foundations of this once enormous pyramid still exists today, just how big this pyramid once was is now left to the imagination, although, one could calculate the structures original possible size based on the ascent angle of many other ancient pyramidal structures from around the world, a range between 48 to 53 degrees would be a very safe bench mark to use, which would have made this once complete structure located in the Dhi Qar Province in the south of Iraq, an awe inspiring site.
Yet what must be the most interesting of details regarding this very ancient structure, characteristics which make this building stand out as obviously a very important piece of the puzzle, regarding the pyramids, has to undoubtedly be the living quarters which were actually built into the pyramid for the use of an ancient alien, a god, who apparently, came from the sky…
Before delving into the details of which, I feel it is important to point out our previous video covering Mario Buildreps compelling work, collaborative data which correlates over 500 ancient structures on earth to past cardinal reference points or northern pole locations, from over half a million years ago, interestingly, he singles out the great Ziggurat among others, in particular the sphinx as notably the most ancient of monuments that he has correlated on Earth. If his work becomes peer reviewed it would, along with numerous other research projects, strongly suggest certain monuments on earth have survived several ice ages, the city of Ur’s pyramid being but one of these ancient sites.
Regardless of Marios compelling work, historical facts surrounding this ancient alien god who was said to have resided within this great pyramid within Iraq, has already been translated, and thus, well-established on many occasions.
The Great Ziggurat consists of successive platforms which have a solid core of mud-brick which was then covered by burnt bricks. This outer layer is said to have protected the core from the elements. The mainstream archaeological and historical understanding of the construction, is that it began under King Ur-Nammu of the Third Dynasty of Ur, around the 21 st century B.C., and was completed by his son, King Shulgi.
The Great Ziggurat of Ur was located in the temple complex of the city state, which was the administrative heart of Ur. Although we would postulate, just like the ancient Egyptian cities, which also built up around these monumental and mysterious structures, were merely modern colonisations of sites which were far older.
It is a well-known fact that many cities, towns, villages, and indeed temples, are often rebuilt. Reconstructed upon much older foundations, it is a common mistake to perceive an historical understandings beginning, which occurred at a certain point within history, as that of the sites creation. Many sites all over the world are far older than that of the academic records made upon said subjects.
The Great Ziggurat of Ur is largely accepted as having been dedicated to the moon god Nanna, who was the patron deity of the city. It is interesting that Nanna is a very ancient deity indeed. And of course, in all possibility was once a very real entity, an ancient alien who visited Earth and attributed as a god, it is likely that this occurred at night, thus making her or him, a moon god.
Nanna has turned up in mythology from cultures throughout the world over the ages, and this of course may have been for good reason, she also appears in Norse mythology in the 6th century, this having been connected by some scholars with the Sumerian goddess Inanna, the goddess Babylonian Ishtar, or the Phrygian goddess Nana, mother of the god Attis. Scholar Rudolf Simek opines that identification with Inanna, Nannar or Nana is “hardly likely” due to the large distances in time and location between the figures. Yet, alas, this form of conclusion, based on academic paradigm, rather than a sheer possibility, is a very dangerous mindset indeed. Scholar Hilda Ellis Davidson says that while “the idea of a link with Sumerian Inanna , ‘Lady of Heaven’, was attractive to early scholars” the notion “seems unlikely. Though she too lacks a compelling argument for her conclusion, we find the notion of “scholars” “assuming”, to be a dangerous scenario for the rest of humanity, and we perceive such attitude as an attack on open, critical thought.
We do however, find the facts surrounding the possible past existence of Nanna, along with the theories surrounding the true antiquity of this one enormous structure, to be highly compelling.
