One of their great early leaders was Sargon the Great, a man who created what one of the earliest known empires on earth. He lived from around 2334 to 2279 BC.
A fascinating bit mentioned about his story/myth/legend is that--as an infant--he was set adrift Moses-like:
According to a folktale, Sargon was a self-made man of humble origins; a gardener, having found him as a baby floating in a basket on the river, brought him up in his own calling.Moses-like?
Sargon lived around the 23rd to 22nd centuries BC, while moses came along much later, around the 13th to the 12th centuries BC.
Seems like Moses actually got his start in a very Sargon-like fashion, not the other way around.
Could it be that the story of Moses--as presented in the Torah--was actually a tale "borrowed" from Babylonian folklore?
