First recorded name in history.
Well, this is interesting. You'd think it would be a king or someone of great importance, but no.

It was an accountant......named Kushim Laugh out load five thousand years ago.

I can't vouch for the research behind this but it's sounds reasonable.

Isn't it amazing that this tablet survived a world wide flood?!

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Nah; s'all fake. Jesus just put all those Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, and Egyptian records there to test our faith.

Well, no, because Caananite dialects (including old Hebraic) only diverged from broader west Semitic languages late in the second millennium BC (post-dating Ugaritic among others), and Hebrew is contemporaneous with Phoenician (i.e., Tyrian), Aramaic, and others. Akkadian and related east Semitic languages are over millennium older than that - and Sumerian (incertae sedis; not Semitic but probably an autochthonous isolate, cf Basque) being the oldest of all. Whereas old Egyptian is not Semitic either but does fall within Afro-Asiatic.

Er, I mean, it totally would have been, but Satan destroyed all the evidence. Oh, yeah. That hangs together. Right?

The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."

No, it was clearly Satan. He planted all those dinosaur fossils, too.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

RE: First recorded name in history.
Quote:In his new book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Yuval Noah Harari goes back 33 centuries before Christ to a 5,000-year-old clay tablet found in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq). It has dots, brackets, and little drawings carved on it and appears to record a business deal.

I wonder if the clay tablet has been destroyed at this point.

It's my understanding that a very old historic temple at Palmyra was destroyed in Syria this month with explosives. I think I remember it being declared a World Heritage site.

I just hope the Roman remains are left alone. Sad
