Some say that Sumeria predates Egypt. Now I'd like to know if Sumeria was African or 'Caucasian'.

People of Sumer would be best described as Mesopatamians. They called themselves sag-giga (black headed people). According to Berrosus a Babylonian historian from 300 BC, they were black faced foriegners. There are older cities such as Jericho.

Sumeria is the first recorded civilization in history ca. 6000 BC..THEY HAD THE FIRST LAWS(THE 10 COMMANDMENTS ARE BASED OFF OF THE CODE OF HAMMURABI)first forms of medicine, religious worship,concept of good and evil, knowledge of all 9 planets(!) It's mentioned by name in the Old Testament as SHI'NAR and in fact is the location of the mythical Garden of Eden and the creation of the first man, the Adama, or Adam,..It's also where the great flood is mentioned in their cuneiform writings...
All the people w/ hard-ons for Egypt should do a bit more research...they also had ziggurats which predated the Egyptian pyramids......

It's also where the original Noah's Ark tale originates..as well as the Tower of Babel and the Great Flood..of course the Catholic church plagiarized the hell out of all this for their religion....

after the flood, the Sumerian survivors gradually made their way into Africa which is where civilization could start up again..being that they were Mesopotamian, they weren't "black" yet they weren't "white" either..more olive skinned

the flood wiped a lot out obviously...however in Iraq there are still records(though very few)regarding ancient Sumer..whatever hasn't been destroyed by the Christians aeons ago or by the current war going on there that is....one more time for those of the dense cerebellum..they weren't "black" and they weren't "white"...

That we're friends doesn't mean that we can't pick a fight.

Do you think that we can now assume that Tiwanaku is the real origin of advanced ancient civilization?

That was in South America. The way they used larges stones with no mortar is impresive. I have been to Peru. But I think they developed indepedently from the old world.
