Priests and Schools
At the Bottom of the Ziggurat
The Shopp!ng Scene!
"Nice to Meat You is one of the best eateries that I have eaten at in a long time. I would recommend their grilled pork with a side of baba ghanoush. It is very authentic. Plus, Nice to Meat You gave me a free cloth nightgown for giving the best speech in the ziggurat this morning!"

The next two shops we could not get people to interview since the shops are so new but we still were able to find some information on what they specialize in. One of the shops is a fashion-based store that weave religious symbols into all of their gowns. They call themselves We Be"weave" in god. The third shop is a new style of shop, what they do is exchange items. They have all kind of religion based board games and knick-knacks. The cool part about this shop is that they say if you buy a board game and you found out it was boring, you could return it to the shop and they would let you pick a new item of your choice as long as the first item is in perfect condition. Sounds pretty neat to me!

The Story of Enheduanna
"Me who once sat triumphant, he has driven out of the sanctuary. Like a swallow he made me fly from the window, My life is consumed. He stripped me of the crown appropriate for the high priesthood. He have me dagger and sword - 'it becomes you,' he said to me"
There have been women-involving injustices happening all over Mesopotamia and this is just the tip of the iceberg. In Babylon, women are allowed to be sold! We hope that we can abolish these horrible acts soon before it gets out of hand.

Babylon Defeated: Should They change their lord?
Priests: How Important are they?
But, some disagree. They dislike priests. One man, Ilapbatuu, argues that," Priests are nothing. They are just lunatics that think that they were chosen by the gods. Any one can walk up stairs and put items on the floor. Dads could teach their children how to right, as I teach my child how to right(he doesn't succeed). Also, it's not that hard to clean a wound with water."
As it seems, most people agree with Raaj.
