Doppelgänger History

Are the double myths of similar mighty Kings and events but in different era’s and civilisations the result of standard chronology being incorrect?

Nimrod and Enmerkar (Sumerian king list) were same person. Both great kings and hunters, alive one generation after Noah’s Flood, both built a city called Uruk/Erech.

Are there Doppelgangers in history, 100’s or 1000’s of years apart? Or have the same God Kings and their mythical hero feats been replicated and doubled up in our western timelines? But how could this happen?

Enmerkar (Sumerian) is a legendary king listed as the builder of the Sumerian city of Uruk. He was said to have reigned for “420 years”; some copies read “900 years”. Enmerkar is also known from a few other Sumerian legends, most notably Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta, where a previous confusion of the languages of mankind is mentioned.

The controversial historian David Rohl has claimed parallels between Enmerkar, builder of Uruk, and Nimrod, ruler of biblical Erech (Uruk), who, according to some extra-biblical legends, was supposedly the architect of the Tower of Babel. One parallel Rohl has noted is between the epithet “the Hunter”, applied to Nimrod, and the suffix -kar at the end of Enmerkar’s name, which means “hunter”. Rohl has also argued that Eridu near Ur is the original site of the city of Babel and that the incomplete ziggurat found there is none other than the Biblical tower itself.

In Hebrew and Christian tradition, Nimrod is considered the leader of those who built the Tower of Babel in the land of Shinar, though the Bible never actually states this. Nimrod’s kingdom included the cities of Babel, Erech, Akkad, and perhaps Calneh, in Shinar. The Bible states that he was “a mighty hunter before the Lord [and] … began to be mighty in the earth”.

Sumerian and Assyrian Doppelganger

There is a Sumerian myth similar to that of the Tower of Babel, called Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta, where Enmerkar of Uruk is building a massive ziggurat in Eridu and demands a tribute of precious materials from Aratta for its construction, at one point reciting an incantation imploring the god Enki to restore (or in Kramer’s translation, to disrupt) the linguistic unity of the inhabited and … “the whole universe, the well-guarded people—may they all address Enlil together in a single language.”

In addition, a further Assyrian myth, dating from the 8th century BC during the Neo-Assyrian Empire (911–605 BC) bears a number of similarities to the later written Biblical story.

History of Doppelgangers

Recent historical chronology is not set in stone. It is fixed to Egyption dating and that has its own Dark Ages and there are lots of other Dark Ages in western civilisations.

if a survey of Europe and America were written in which the history of the British Isles were some six hundred years out of line, so that in Europe and America the year would be 1941 while in Britain it would be 1341.

As Columbus discovered America in 1492, the Churchill of 1341 could not have visited this country, but must have visited some other land – the scholars would be divided in their opinion as to the whereabouts of that land – and met its chief. Another, chief, not Franklin Delano Roosevelt of Washington, would live in history as cosigner of a charter with Churchill of Britain in 1341.

But as American records would speak of Churchill who crossed the ocean in the early forties of the twentieth century, British history would also have a Churchill II, six hundred years, after the first one.

The First World War would be fought twice, as would the Second, The First World War, in its second variant, would follow the Second World War, In its first variant, by five and three quarter centuries.

By the same token, the development of the Constitution, the cultural life, the progress of technology and the arts, would appear in chaotic distortion.

Was there little or no recordings of events during these dark times, were they destroyed, or do these historian named era’s not exist except in made up time frames and constructs? Is it time for New Chronology and a revised story of our historic times?

Eridu is a tell, an immense mound made up of the ruins of thousands of years of occupation. Eridu’s tell is a large oval, measuring 1,900×1,700 feet (580×540 meters) in diameter and rising to an elevation of 23 ft (7 m). Most of its height is made up of the ruins of the Ubaid period town (6500–3800 BCE), including houses, temples, and cemeteries built over on top of one another for nearly 3,000 years.

At the top are the most recent levels, the remainders of the Sumerian sacred precinct, consisting of a ziggurat tower and temple and a complex of other structures on a 1,000 ft (300 m) square platform. Surrounding the precinct is a stone retaining wall. That complex of buildings, including the ziggurat tower and temple, was built during the Third Dynasty of Ur (~2112–2004 BCE).

In regards to the actual myths of the tower of Babel, there are folklore variations of these towers around the world. Could this have been due to Peratt Instabilities observed in our skies?
