This is a pretty patchy article[edit]

AMORITE PERIOD - There is not much detail about the Amorite dynasty, apart from Hammurabi

KASSITE PERIOD - Same as above really, pretty basic and patchy. Someone removed the detailed rev because of "Assyrian bias" lol...i never saw any tbh.

OTHER DYNASTIES - The current version just ignores them

NEO BABYLONIAN EMPIRE - Most of this is about PERSIA???

The whole article is patchy and doesnt contain much detail at all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by EddieDrood (talkcontribs) 14:26, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Babylonia: Persian?!, so what happened to Iraq?[edit]

So why didn't the writer say that Babylonia was completely PERSIAN?!, this includes much fatal errors and remember that you can not trust all websites of the sources you've used (writer), we can not include something from our own, the Iraqi Wikipedians must help us in this or the Iraqi history will go out like this!.

Quite probably because Persians are an Iranic Indo-European people, and Babylonians were Semites and remnants of the Sumerians that spoke a non-IE language? Just a thought. HammerFilmFan (talk) 19:01, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

babylonian and aztec[edit]

I seen a program on the history chanel saying that the aztecs are actualy babylonian in decent so that would mean that they are not native to america that they migrated here just like the early europeans they had to have done a blood test or something to figure this out can anyone confirm this?

Genesis 10:10[edit]

The Book of Genesis, 10:10 states "The first centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Uruk, Akkad and Kalneh, in Shinar. Does this refer to "Babylonia" or "Babylon" (I believe they are the same thing).[1] Twillisjr (talk) 03:14, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

No, in this instance the reference is to the city of Babylon, not the region/state of Babylonia. However, Babylon was not located in Sumer (Shinar.)


Is Gnosticism the religion of Babylonians? Early Iraq is supposedly connected to this religion and a few scholarly articles do mention it as being practiced in Babylonia. Does anyone else know if this is the case and where to add it?

Twillisjr (talk) 14:26, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Not quite. If we read Gnosticism we see it properly refers to a religion that began to spread around the year 100 AD, in the eastern Roman Empire. I think there may be groups in Iraq today that were influenced by them, but it is an anachronism for Babylonia, which is going back to 500-1800 BC. Til Eulenspiegel /talk/ 14:47, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
