According to the findings of a study by Chicago University, the early human settlement of Jarmo continued to exist up to the year 4950 B.C. It is not attributed to any specific nation, race, or any other known civilization.
The inhabitants grew wheat, barely, cereals and grains. They have had various herds of live-stock, cows, pigs, dogs, and chicken and they used to celebrate the advent of Spring season, when warmth returns, flowers begin to blossom and the land begins to put forth its rich yields and seasonal corps.
The recent antiquities show that the tribes that were in command of Jarmo were worshipping a “god” they called “Ashur”.
This “god” has later became the God of gods for the Assyrians. Some historians say that Jarmo’s 15th ruler “Ashbia” had built a temple for the worship of this god: I am the King, Ashboia.
I have built this altar and dedicated it to the god Ashir. As early as 4750 B.C., they started to celebrate their New Year, according to their calendar.
What we have managed to confirm here at Firil Studies Centre is that the Assyrians came to existence much earlier than Torah-based history books claim.
When in doubt, we check and cross-reference our information on the basis of scientific facts, first and foremost. Such data show that the Assyrians were living in Mesopotamia much earlier that than the alleged “Semite migrations”.
Mankind inhabited Mesopotamia and Syria tens of thousands of years before this alleged history.
Antiquities show that mankind (Homo Sapiens) inhabited Syria about 100 thousand years ago. This, of course, does not match any religious narrative. But this is not our issue now.
The question to be posed: These historical accounts, which are scientifically confirmed and are proven by means of the archaeological finds, totally and absolutely disprove the so-called “Semite migrations” theories. Do supporters of these alleged migrations have even a single scientific evidence supporting their claims?
But that is not all. There is a worse and more unfounded theory going into circulation: Once the Semite story was debunked as a purely Torah-based myth, some history researchers decided to refute this “Semite migration” myth.
To do so, they adopted what they believed to be a “smart way” but in fact, they took a worse course than that set by the would-be refuted theory.
Instead of “Semite migrations”, they coined the term “Arab migrations”. They attributed every this to Arabs. According to this clumsy theory being promoted by a revered “historian:, Noah was an Arab.
Shem spoke Arabic and his Arab folk were there thousands of years before his own birth. According to them, Aram, son of Shem, did not speak Aramaic, but rather Arabic. And he was a true ethnic Arab.
This “great” historian goes on to claim: “We lately found that what called as ancient Greek, the language of the Greek civilization and another language that was the language of Italy, were in fact old Arabic”!!!
“We do assert that all antiquities and archaeological sites still standing in our countries are purely Arab relics.
We also assert that Shem and all of his sons and grandsons (descendants) are a branch of Arabs who have dwelled in the heart of the Arabia Peninsula,” he maintains. His “theory” is too long to relate.
So, to keep it short, we sum it up with this conclusion he came up with: “ Thus, we see the unity of this great heritage, which is the oldest on the face of the earth.
It is enough for any one of us to study this rich heritage with reason, depending on the Arabic language, which accompanies mankind since the earliest human settlements up to the present day.
There was an uninterrupted continued historical course. The Arabic language survived all these centuries in its two main dialects: the classical Arabic and the Syriac.
In its writings (scriptures), which are the oldest, we see an immortal record of the history of mankind on this planet.” !!! Really ??? So, according to him, the Syriac is a dialect of Arabic !!!
If we were to take such a fable theory, all international and historical theories and archaeological discoveries would be dumped and put aside.
Why? Simply because this “esteemed” historian and the likes of him, have found what thousands of historians and scientific researchers could not find!!
He claims that all relics, languages, civilizations and peoples are Arab. And he claims that Arabic if the mother of all languages.
But let him and any of the supporters of such a theory present a book, a manuscript or a clay tablet written in Arabic, before the Holy Koran.
The rhetoric about Semite migrations from the Arabia Peninsula is sheer nonsense invented by certain orientalists. Scientific studies today show that these theories can not stand the test of historical facts.
As the term “Semite” was coined, some Jewish theologians rushed to embrace this mythical theory and took upon themselves the task of re-writing the history of ancient Middle East, with a special focus of the Arab-Islamic history.
By doing so, they highlighted what they termed as “Hebrews” and belittled the history of Arabs and Muslims.
Unfortunately, the Arabs have endorsed these terms and historical accounts, on the basis of which a lot of books and volumes were authored and are being incorporated into the text books, without realizing that this was a trap set for them.
On the other hand, some other historians rejected half of the orientalists narrative and attributed everything to Arabs.
In fact, both are false. History accounts need to be revised and corrected on the basis of scientific studies, archaeological findings, manuscripts, and antiquities.
History should not be taught as a fairy tale.
