* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Online Books on Mesopotamian mythology and religion
« on: September 27, 2011, 10:54:36 am »
Spesifically Babylonian, I've just had a recent fascination with the subject, but the problem is I don't know any books and if I did I couldn't afford them, so pdf's would be much appreciated.

Are you familiar with the Etana archive site? (Warning: it's often slow to load)

Sacred Texts has a good collection of ancient Middle Eastern books. A lot of them are outdated, but there's apparently some good ones; Just make sure you don't make any of them the end-all of your researching.
" For this feeling of wonder shows that you are a philosopher, since wonder is the only beginning of philosophy..." - Socrates to Theaetetus.
