12 planets in all... if you debate that the sun is in the center of the solar system depiction I don't know what to say... clearly it is a sun, and 11 orbs rotating around it... again, 12 in all...
to deny this is to simply say that the people who are currently at the head of this research are simply lying for their own malicious purposes.... personally i do not believe that, as the evidence speaks for itself
I assume you're talking about cylinder seal va243?
This is it:
In the upper left of the seal is what some people refer to as our solar system, but it is not. It is a constellation - likely the Pleiades.
Incidentally, the inscription on the seal says "Dubsiga, Ili-illat, your/his servant."
Dubsiga is the name of some particularly important person, and his name is repeated on the right side of the seal.
Ili-illat is the name of the seal's owner.
Here's the Sumerian symbol for our sun (note the wavy lines):
The above symbol is very often combined with the symbol for the Moon and the star symbol (or Inanna - Venus) throughout mesopotamian cultural tradition.
Such as here:
Things like the constellation in that cylinder seal were used sort of like a date stamp for the seal. It signified what time of the year the seal was made. Such seals were used to create chits or IOU's for debts owed or reciepts for debts or taxes paid, so the time of year stamp has some relevance there.
I've seen an example of this depicting a crab in the sky. Sumer was where the zodiac originated and Cancer was seen by them as a crab, a daddy longlegs spider, and a turtle in different eras.
I can't find that particular seal right now online or I'd link you to it. When I come across it again, I'll do so.
