In Assyro-Babylonian Mythology: Ninurta (shares some characteristics with Ningrisu) - Chamberlain of the Anunnaki, the war god, the champion of the land. He is the child of Ellil and Mami. He was born in Ekur, Ellil's temple in Ekur. He is responsible for some small scale irrigation. He has a bow and arrow, sometimes they are poisoned. He also carries the mace, Sharur, which can act as a messenger between Ninurta and other beings (notably Ea). He can marshal the Seven of Battle, who can generate whirlwinds. He bound the Mountain of Stones in his fury, conquered the Anzu with his weapon and slew the bullman inside the Sea. (Dalley p. 204). After the Tablet of Destinies was stolen, Belit-ili, at Ea's advice, instructed him to kill Anzu. Initially his assault was futile, but Sharur relayed advise from Ea to him, which, when it was carried out allowed him to slay Anzu in a great onslaught. He recovered the Tablet of Destinies for Ellil.

Assyro-Babylonian Mythology: notes regarding the Seven Gods Pleiades and the Sebitti. Anu - Sumerian for "heaven", a sky god, father and king of the gods, son of Anshar and Kishar, lived in the third heaven. The Eanna in Uruk was dedicated both to him and consort. His first consort was Antu. They produced the Anunnaki - the underworld gods, and the utukki - the seven evil demons. His second consort was Innina (Ishtar). He is a god of monarchs and is not friendly to the common people, "King of the Igigi," assigned the sky as his domain in 'Atrahasis'. His 'kishru's (shooting stars) have awesome strength. He has the ability that anything he puts into words, becomes reality. He is Niudimmud's (Ea's) father. He calls Adapa to account for breaking the wing of the South Wind, and offers him the food and drink of eternal life after Dumuzi and Gizzida speak on Adapa's behalf. He agrees to send the Bull of Heaven after Gilgamesh on Ishtar's behalf, if she has made sure that the people of Uruk are properly provisioned for seven years. He decrees that either Gilgamesh or Enkidu must die for the slaying of Humbaba and the Bull of Heaven. He sends Kakka to Kurnugi to tell Ereshkigal to send a messenger to receive a gift from him. When Anzu stole the Tablet of Destinies from Ellil, he called for one of the gods to slay Anzu and thereby greatly increase his reputation. He gave Marduk the four winds to play with. He made a whirlwind and a flood wave and stirred up Tiamat on purpose. When Tiamat's retaliation for Apsu's death was discovered, Anshar sent him on a peace mission to her, but he returned unsuccessfully. He helps form a princely shrine for Marduk prior to his battle with Tiamat, and gives him the Anu-power of decreeing fates, such that his word is law. He and Earth father the Sebitti. He gives them fearsome fates and powers and puts them at Erra's command, to aid in killing noisy, over populous people and animals. (See also the Hittite Anus Symbol: sacred shine surmounted by the divine horned cap. Sacred number: 60 Astrological region: heavenly equator Sacred animal: the heavenly Bull. Notes about the Seven Heavens "In the Book of Enoch it was the archangel Uriel ('God is my light') who showed Enoch the secrets of the Sun (solstices and equinoxes, 'six portals' in all) and the 'laws of the Moon' (including intercalation), and the twelve constellations of the stars, 'all the workings of heaven'. And in the end of the schooling, Uriel gave Enoch - as Shamash and Adad had given Enmeduranki - 'heavenly tablets', instructing him to study them carefully and note 'every individual fact' therein. Returning to Earth, Enoch passed this knowledge to his old son, Methuselah." - Zecharia Sitchin, When Time Began The knowledge granted Enoch included: "All the workings of heaven, earth and the seas, and all the elements, their passages and goings and the thunderings of the thunder, and of the Sun and the Moon; the goings and changings of the stars; the seasons, years, days, and hours."The Book of the Secrets of Enoch. According to the The Book of the Secrets of Enoch, "it seems that when the prophet Enoch was 'taken up', he saw the air and then the ether. Then he reached the first heaven, where 'two hundred angels rule the stars' and where he saw a sea 'greater than the earthly sea'. "The second heaven was gloomy. In the third heaven, he saw the Tree of Life, with four streams, of honey, milk, oil, and wine, flowing from its roots. The Place of the Righteous is in this heaven and the Terrible Place where the wicked are tortured. There was also the 'place on which God rests when he comes into Paradise'. "In the fourth heaven, he saw luminaries, wondrous creatures, and the Host of the Lord. There were many 'hosts' in the fifth, and in the sixth he saw 'bands of angels who study the revolutions of the stars'. Finally, in the seventh heaven he saw great angels and he got a distant glimpse of the Lord on His Throne." - Richard L. Thompson, Alien Identities "I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven ... was caught up to Paradise. He heard inexpressible things, things that man is not permitted to tell." 2 Corinthians 12:2-4 (the apostle Paul describing his own experience) "Enoch's third heaven...seems very similar to the region known as Ilavrta-varsa, which is described in the Fifth Canto of the Bhagavata Purana. Thus, in Ilavrta-varsa there are four gigantic trees, and four rivers flow from their roots, including a river of honey. There is also a city called Brahmapuri, which is visited by Lord Brahma and which may correspond to the 'place on which God rests when he comes into Paradise'." The Venerable Bede, an eighth-century English theologian and historian, wrote that "the seven heavens are (1) the Air, (2) the Ether, (3) Olympus, (4) the Element of Fire, (5) the Firmament, (6) the Angelical Region, and (7) the Realm of the Trinity." "According to the Fifth Canto of the Bhagavata Purana, Brahmapuri and the residences of eight prominent Devas [administrators of the Universe] are situated on the top of a mountain in Ilavrta-varsa called Meru, and therefore Mount Meru corresponds to the Greek Olympus. Thus, if Ilavrta-varsa corresponds to Enoch's third heaven, then it is also reasonable to say that this third heaven corresponds to the Greek Olympus." - Richard L. Thompson, Alien Identities

Reads -Uman-ash lu-gal-uru Translation: -- The One Lord, The great hero, Sumerian pictograph of Uru, meaning “Guard,”
Sumerian ME -- Egyptian MA’AT The Sumerians believed that Inanna brought from her father, in the case represented as Enlil, the Lord of the Gods, the fundamental requirements of human life and civilization, immutable manifestations of the divine will which were at the root of Sumerian society. These divinely inspired concepts were called me and include the Kingship and the divine, truth, law, rejoicing, the crafts, and a host of others. The key to the Egyptian world was represented by the concept ma’at, a term which is elusive and which, like the Sumerian me resists precise translation. Ma’at is order, balance, the harmony of the universe, a discipline weighing of many elements in a coherent whole; Ma’at is also truth, for truth and order, in cosmic or universal terms, must be identical. The hieroglyph for Ma’at is a delicate, adolescent girl, naked but for a single feather in her hair. In the Egyptian creation myths the process began when the Creator lifts Ma’at to his lips, and kissing her, thus the universe is born. In my research during the Middle Kingdom 12th Dynasty King Amenemhet III (2000-1970 B.C.); the king is “the shepherd” of the people; ma’at, “justice, right.”
The Beginning of Calendars In the Bible, time was reckoned solely on astronomical observations. The early Chaldean and Egyptian astrologers became quite learned in the movements of astronomical bodies. This made an impact on the Jewish calendar. From the earliest times the sun and moon were determinants of periods: days, months and years. The seven-day week is of Semitic origin. The Babylonians and Assyrians bound their week to the lunar cycle, corresponding to the four phases of the moon, and began anew with each new moon. The biblical week had its origin in the seven-day creation account and ran consecutively in a free-week system irrespective of lunar or solar cycles. The Egyptian week had ten days. There are no records of the people of the pre-Flood era or the patriarchal period observing a “sabbath,” until Exodus 16:23 which occurs in the next Age of Aries. Month is a synonym for moon. Apparently all ancient people worshipped the moon. They also measured time by it, because of its regular cycles. The Arabic word for moon means “the measurer,” and the Egyptian moon god Thoth was the god of measure. Even apostate Jews at times worshipped the moon along with other heavenly bodies. A Year in the OT calendar contained two concurrent years: The sacred year (Hebrew-instituted by Moses after the Exodus), has its beginning in the spring with the month Nisan. It consists of 12 or 13 lunar months of 29 ½ days each. The civil year (Jewish-which claims a more remote antiquity from Creation), beginning in the fall with Tishri. It beginning traditionally took place in autumn 3760 B.C. The Babylonians and Egyptians devised the intercalary month in order to reconcile the lunar and solar years. The Jewish leap years in their Metonic cycle of nineteen years were fixed, adding an intercalary month to the third, sixth, ninth, eleventh, fourteenth, seventeenth, and nineteenth years (seven times in 19 years). If, on the sixteenth of the month Nisan, the Sun had not reached the vernal equinox, the month was declared to be the second Adar (Veador) and the following on Nisan. If the Hebrew calendar is the true starting date, then Adam’s Fall from Eden began in this Age of Taurus around 3,760 B.C., then with Noah to the Flood would have occurred in the Age of Aries around the year 2,104 B.C. with Shem’s posterity. It is hard to imagine this to be true after reading the first three chapters of this book and also what you are about to read. 1 “The Hebrew Calendar, according to tradition, started with the Creation, at a moment 3,760 years and 3 months before the beginning of the Christian era. To find the year in the Hebrew calendar, we must add 3,760 to the date in the Gregorian calendar. The year 1985 A.D. for example would be the year 5,745 according to the Hebrew calendar. The Islamic Calendar began with Muhammad’s flight from Mecca to Medina, which took place in A.D. 622. The Chinese Calendar begins with 2,637 B.C., the year when the legendary Emperor Huang-Ti supposedly invented it. The earliest date known in the Egyptian Calendar corresponds to 4,236 B.C. in terms of our present-day system. The Egyptians were probably the first people to adopt a predominantly solar calendar. They noted that the Dog Star, Sirius (see Canis Major), reappeared in the eastern sky just before sunrise after several months of invisibility. They also discovered that the annual flood of the Nile River came soon after Sirius reappeared. They used this event to fix their calendar, and came to recognize a year of 365 days, made up of 12 months each 30 days long, and an extra dividend of five days added at the end. But they did not allow for the extra fourth of a day, and their calendar slowly drifted into error.”
The World Book Encyclopedia "CALENDAR"
In our present day calendar we use 365 ¼ days in a year, the extra day is made up every four years, called leap year on February 29th. The Hebrew Calendar The Hebrew calendar was an important tool to the ancient Hebrews. Not only did it structure their religious year, setting the holy days of festival and feast (Heb. mo’edh, an assembling, hagh, dance, or pilgrimage, see page 6 for more detail), but it also structured the agricultural efforts of the society. Each month was known for certain weather conditions which, in turn, indicated times for planting and harvesting of various crops, much in the same way as today. Before the Exile, the months were usually referred to by the agricultural activity which they represented. After the exile, though, the Babylonian name of the month was more often used. The early Israelites thus designated their months by names that they borrowed from the Canaanites or Phoenicians, which has been confirmed by the Talmud, and their origin was close to nature, as is seen from their derivations.

http://ccwf.cc.utexas.edu/~hope/cur.html Calendar: Ur Ur (modern Tell al-Muqayyar) was a Sumerian city in southern Mesopotamia established early in the Ubaid period (c. 4000 BC). The city was the primary center for the worship of the Moon god, Nanna (Sin), and is home to a magnificent ziggurat built for the purpose of his adoration. Ur was a port city for Mesopotamian trade with countries in the Persian Gulf and beyond until the 18 th century BC and was probably abandoned in the 4th century BC because of a change in the course of the rivers (Roaf p101).
