Sumerians, who were much more precise and who knew those were not unerring gods, had no scruples about telling of their failures. And they tell us details with higher precision than monotheistic thought all of which was inserted into the Bible later. The Sumerians tell us quite plainly that these guys had a whole bunch of failed attempts before they created or even came close to achieving the right slave!
They made a lot of mistakes. Those of you that followed the Dolly sheep clone years ago but they don't tell you about the 240 attempts and failed sheeps before her. That is not a made up number. Real number. Sumerians wrote of the same thing of these guys. The Sumerians tell us of these guys making one that could not hold back urine, one that could not close his eyes, one with a crooked spine, one without genitals, one unable to eat, I don't even remember them all but not important.
They made a lot wrong. A really horrible one is made note of, one made by coincidence with the extracted material from the blood of one of the presumed gods chiefs! How bout that, the least successful attempt was one from Enki's own blood. At some point they gave the other of the big two bosses a try. Enlil. Can you imagine? From Enki they got a complete and horrible failure. It was a hairy being with a closed throat, imperfect eyes, twisted ribs, and paralyzed spine! It's heart, head and intestines were damaged and all written of in precise detail! It was also unable to lift it's hands.
These translations are NOT from Sitchin! Because Sitchin is important but one has to go beyond. Regarding Sumerology I follow the translations made by academics. For the record those are the translations of Giovanni Pettinato who was a world wide authority when alive.
So these are the translations of an acclaimed academic in the field, recognized worldwide. Incidentally he was the chairman of the European commission for the creation of a Sumerian dictionary, hence a real undisputed worldwide authority!
I mean no people is so stupid to create such a type of god to adore them?! The Sumarians tell it as they saw it. They describe how these guys to be feared moved forward by trial and error.
Evidently they told us those things to remember them, obviously with the linguistical conceptual cultural instruments they were provided with, but they told the story in the way it likely happened. The Bible is a lazy summary of it. Or actually they made two. One real, known by the incast, one fake romanticized for the masses.
