*Sigh*. You misunderstand me Eddie. My asking you for a particular reference is not an argument for or against Zagros vs Lebanon as we (I) have already established the earlier Sumerian version is believed to refer to the Zagros mountains, correcting myself, supposedly near Iran in particular. I do not have a "problem" with it and you did not mention the Zagros mountains per se', but rather gave a quote from Wikipedia that mentions it. Remember? Then I found a source that verified this and changed Wikipedia and you said good because it saved you the trouble of quoting the passages? You said you could quote these things so I was just hoping you would to save me the trouble as you implied you could, but that's ok. I'll find it myself. And if this is it then I'll find out how they came to this conclusion from this text as I am not seeing it. Just a simple question.
Regardless, I think it would be great if the original Sumerian versions refer to the Zagros mountains of Iran as this opens very interesting possibilities namely why the change from the Zagros being the "home of the gods" in the 3rd millennium (or earlier) to it at some point later being changed to Lebanon. Some interesting stuff in Iran.
