“Gilgamesh continues to spring surprises by proving to us that ideas we think modern are not modern at all.”

We should never underestimate the advanced thinking and wisdom of the ancients and lower it to simple “savagery” or “superstition”. Sure those existed and at times were prevalent, but using Joseph Smith’s restored scriptures back from the time of Abraham and Moses, and looking at the scriptures antiquity themselves, it is hard to say that wisdom and truth and light did not exist.

The Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh can teach us many things and provide additional context to the scriptures.
