I've read that Atlantis once fought a war with the Rama Empire. In its bid to rule the whole world, Atlantis employed cigar-shaped aircraft called "vailixis" to attack Rama (northern India). Rama had aircraft called "vimanas," and may have defended themselves with them. The latter successfully fended off the attack of the former. (And antediluvian helicopters were used, as the Abydos hieroglyph attests.) This was most likely before the advent of Adam and Eve (the later Anunnaki or elohim, as opposed to the early Anunnaki: Enki, Enlil and the other morning stars). It is said that Enoch (son of Adam) later came to rule in Atlantis; and Cain came to rule in Rama.
Going back to the 1st World Age, I got the impression that Enlil and Yahweh--and therefore Jesus--are the same person. Thus you could say that Enlil is the "bright and morning star." (Revelation 22:16) The pre-incarnate Jesus can be considered to have been among the angels, yet he was the image of God: the Word, who is God. Psalm 89:7 says, "God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him." The "saints" in this verse refers to the angels. Enki, who is Lucifer, was considered the elder brother of Enlil. This is because he was the first governor of this solar system--sent by God to govern in his name. However Enki rebelled against the Creator. Without going into the details, the Father sent the Ancient of Days (Enlil) to set things right again. (And I guess Enlil was aided by Ninurta (the archangel Michael).) But in between Enki's bid to dethrone God and Ninurta being sent into our solar system, it was actually Marduk who had been sent to put down Enki's rebellion. He did so, and then he turned around and went against his God--becoming the son of Enki (spiritually). And then Yahweh--with the help of Michael (Ninurta)--crushed Marduk's (now Satan's) rebellion. Thus Genesis 1:2 is the aftermath of the war in heaven that occurred after Genesis 1:1.
With the dawn of the 2nd World Age, the Assembly of the Gods decided to create man (6th day) to "replenish the earth" (Genesis 1:28). (By the way, it appears that the dinosaurs were part of the 1st World Age, and they pretty much disappeared once the 2nd World Age commenced.) Once they gained knowledge of a prior civilization called "Atlantis," men decided to revive it. Meanwhile Enki--who had been thrown down to the earth along with Marduk--attempted to duplicate Enlil or YHWH's creation of man: the former created such creatures as Homo Erectus, Neanderthals, and Bigfoot. Enki had (still has) advanced technology, but he is no God. And the Ancient of Days put down this endeavor (also), and Enki died: he disappeared from this 3-dimensional plane.
Let us fast-forward to Noah's regional flood. (Preceding this flood another flood had swallowed up Atlantis in 9,600 BC--for it had become corrupt.) One theory has the deluge of the Black Sea (circa 5,500 BC)--when the Mediterranean massively poured into the Black Sea, converting it from a fresh water lake into an inland sea--as the flood in which God saved Noah and his family from the destruction of the people they lived amongst. So the ark settled in the mountains of Ararat (Urartu) to the east. It is from here that the early Sumerians (Ubaids) came into Shinar (Mesopotamia) from the east. They were of one language. When they constructed a tower in defiance of God, that's when they were scattered into different language groups. Then the Akkadians rose to prominence. And their first king was Nimrod (which may have been a title), a son of Ham. However, he took on another title: Sargon, in honor of the antediluvian Sargon the Magnificent (Cain). Nimrod or Sargon ruled from Babel, where earlier the inhabitants were scattered and never finished the tower. And after Nimrod, Asshur (a son of Shem) gained the preeminence.
So most likely the early Sumerians or Ubaids partly came from the Indus Valley: they were the Aryans. And the later Sumerians who came to dominance in the area were the Semetic Akkadians. ("Sumerians" was a catch-all name.) Thus the Chaldeans were an Akkadian/Aryan mixture. Which explains how the name "Rama" made its way into Mesopotamia and further westward--by way of Abraham and Sarah--into the Levant. Matthew 2:18 says, "In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not."
One last thing: this imminent war with Iran is that which is spoken of in Daniel 8, in which the USA is going down. Then the Antichrist--after bringing in a deceptive peace--will launch the war of Ezekiel 38. This will begin with the short-lived occupation of Jerusalem and end with the invasion of an America that has lost its military might and whose major cities have been burned with fire (where will be Armageddon): we read (after Gog's ultimately unsuccessful (as Zechariah 12 tells us) invasion of the "mountains of Israel" or the Land of Promise) in Ezekiel 38, "10Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought: 11And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, 12To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land."
