I am pleased to say that The Code of Hammurabi page is now substantially complete. Everything here is a work in progress, but this was something I thought was foundational for the site and I am glad to have it done.
It seems to be the affliction of every age that those who inhabit it think they are smarter and better than any one that came before. Yet history is replete with examples that this is not so. This does not mean to say that The Code of Hammurabi is filled with striking wisdom, but it was transformational for the age, and shows a thriving culture with a fully stated legal code. In many ways it was centuries ahead of its time.
On the subject of history, and our place in it, we should be careful not to be too full of ourselves. We supposedly still don’t know how they built the pyramids, or why. And why are the ancient ruins of underwater cities never talked about? Why do they lie to us about where America’s name really came from? Why did Wernher von Braun place Psalm 19:1 on his tombstone?
Evidence that reveals all sorts of things is hidden in plain sight all around us. One might continually ask why. Who really controls the planet, and what do they know about its origins or nature that they don’t want us to know? It is puzzling. If we keep looking though, sifting, and keep our minds open to the seemingly fantastic or impossible, we may eventually find answers to many of the questions that fill our minds.
