What is the “Babel Project”?

The Babel Project is an ambitious program to use Sotho-Tswana to:

  1. Revisit and re-translate all seven tablets of the Enuma Elish, as well as other very ancient texts…
  2. Expand and finalize my already-existing but yet-unpublished  Dictionary of Protolanguage Terms
  3. Generate a new and comprehensive linguistic history of how languages varied and evolved…

Since the Sotho-Tswana language showed excellent signs that it was the  same basic language used in the Babylonian Akkadian Text of the Enuma Elish, and also provides good clues as to the Sumerian language that precedes it, obviously we can gainfully expand on this.

What is the real meaning of “Babel”?

According to the famous author and scholar Zecharia Sitchin, and contrary to Genesis 11 in the Old Testament  bible, “Babel” does not primarily mean “confusion [of languages]”: Bab-El  (or Babillyon) means “Gateway of the Gods”.   Yes, but gateway to where?

A new retranslation of the ancient Sumerian epic the Enuma Elish (discussed below) clearly shows that ma-Eli (“gods” in Sumerian and Akkadian) had spacecraft (the Shu) with which they escaped planetary cataclysms…or journeyed to Mars, which they called Mu.   So, clearly,  Bab-illu (the alternative spelling) was their “gateway to the heavens”…and their me-shu  (shu-im in Hebrew) was their means of getting there.

In short, Sitchin got it right! Shu-im, I confirm, eventually contracted to shem… and it did not primarily mean “name” or “reputation”.   In reality, the shem that people were attempting to build on their own–thus angering the Eli–was not quite the actual shem itself, but a launch-tower for the shem…the beginning of their efforts to build their own bab-El.    And the “tower whose top will reach the heavens” was not quite a ziggurat (as in the image shown) but the cone-shaped command-module that perches atop the booster rocket “towers”… just like in the Apollo  missions… which rockets quickly fall away, leaving only the command capsule to reach the moon.    So, how was “Babel” opportunistically associated with “confusion [of languages]”?

The alleged subsequent scrambling of languages by the “gods”, ma-Eli, appears to have been a real event.   It was recorded in the ancient text Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta.    Enmekar was a real king of Sumer who, in a tense diplomatic exchange, argued with the Lord of Aratta over the Lord’s rather too convenient excuse that he did not understand Enmerkar’s requests because of  “the recent scrambling of languages” !

Unfortunately–or conveniently–for Genesis 11 authors, the term ber-ber (or bar-bar, root of “barbaric”) indeed means  “those whose language we do not understand”…a term ratified by the Sotho-Tswana founding proto-term ba reba re (“they utter this, utter that”). Indeed, that is why Romans…who spoke Latin…called other European tribes “barbaric”….not so much, initially, because they had a different, “lower” culture, but primarily because they spoke other languages.  Per the linguistically well-know l-to-r phonemic shift , bar-ber became ba-bel.  In the process, it  left out the greater context. Fortunately, the Enuma Elish now helps reinstate the original, proper context…

The Enuma Elish

The Enuma-Elish is a 5000 year-old Sumerian-Akkadian text consisting of seven cuneiform tablets of about 160 lines each, unearthed at the ancient Assyrian empire site of Nineveh in 1857 and forming part of thousands more comprising the Great Library of Ashurbanipal.  Ashurbanipal ruled B.C.E. 669 – 631 in  conventional dating, and by the time of his rule the Sumerian language had long died.

Often alternatively called “The Epic of Creation”, the text undoubtedly provides rare insight into the thinking and knowledge of people right at the dawn of civilization 3000 years before Christ.

However, the previously overlooked transliteration key of Sotho-Tswana now contradicts conventional translations and provides fresh insight into  what the ancient scribes were really saying. And we find that the Enuma Elish is not describing a mythical “creation time” , but a real geological event that took place 250 million years ago…

The scars caused by the planetary cataclysm described in the Enuma Elish are evident in a huge missing chunk of Earth…an enormous cavity now housing the Pacific Ocean… whose floor is indeed 250 million years old while much of the crust is  4 billion years old. 

Although geologists seldom connect this cavity with the Great Permian Extinction of 250 million years ago in  which 90% of all planetary life was extinguished, anyone can see that the date of this extinction exactly matches the date of this “scar”.  How the even more ancient and enigmatic “gods” (the Eli) used their me-Shu (spacecraft) to escape this disaster  is described in horrific detail by the ancient scribes who, much later, apparently now lived alongside them.  Indeed, their far more ancient record is periodically unearthed in anachronistic fossil finds 300 million years and older…
