      There were some problems with the first, so once again and a little extended:

      "At first they led a somewhat wretched existence and lived without rule after the manner of beasts. But, in the first year after the flood appeared an animal endowed with human reason, named Oannes, who rose from out of the Erythian Sea, at the point where it borders Babylonia. He had the whole body of a fish, but above his fish's head he had another head which was that of a man, and human feet emerged from beneath his fish's tail. He had a human voice, and an image of him is preserved unto this day. He passed the day in the midst of men without taking food; he taught them the use of letters, sciences and arts of all kinds. He taught them to construct cities, to found temples, to compile laws, and explained to them the principles of geometrical knowledge. He made them distinguish the seeds of the earth, and showed them how to collect the fruits; in short he instructed them in everything which could tend to soften human manners and humanize their laws. From that time nothing material has been added by way of improvement to his instructions. And when the sun set, this being Oannes, retired again into the sea, for he was amphibious. After this there appeared other animals like Oannes."

      From yehspace who have many interesting views on YAHVE and the relations to different deities:
      Egyptian IAH

      The Egyptians adopted the Sumerian IA as their moon god IAH (Ee-Yah) because the moon controls the water on planet Earth.
      "The god Iah, whose name means 'moon', first appears in the Late Period (661-332 BC). The moon god was assimilated with Osiris, god of the dead. Perhaps because, in its monthly cycle, the moon appears to renew itself. Iah also seems to have assumed the lunar aspect of Thoth, god of knowledge, writing and calculation; the segments of the moon were used as fractional symbols in writing." British Museum

       
       

      Philistine Dagon was IA (YAH)

      The Philistines called IA Dagon which the scriptures describe in 1 Samuel 5:3,41, and 1 Chronicles 10:10.

      Greek Oannes was IA (YAH)

      Catholics Wear Fish-Hats for IA (YAH)

      The Catholics wear mitres because they also worship Dagon/IA/YAH.

      "The cult of Ea extended throughout Babylonia and Assyria. We find temples and shrines erected in his honor, e.g. at Nippur, Girsu, Ur, Babylon, Sippar and Nineveh, and the numerous epithets given to him, as well as the various forms under which the god appears, also bear witness to the popularity which he enjoyed from the earliest to the latest period of Babylonian-Assyrian history."http://personalpages.tds.net/~theseeker/Yahweh.htm
       
       
      The following is taken from Creation marks time slowly, which contains many interesting articles:

      As there is more than one meaning attached to the stories of the creation and deluge, we say, therefore, that the biblical account cannot be comprehended apart from the Babylonian story of the same; while neither will be thoroughly clear without the Brahmanical esoteric interpretation of the deluge, as found in theMahabharata and the Satapatha-Brahmana. It is the Babylonians who were taught the "mysteries," the sacerdotal language, and their religion by the problematical Akkadians who -- according to Rawlinson came from Armenia -- not the former who emigrated to India. Here the evidence becomes clear. The Babylonian Xisuthrus is shown by Movers to have represented the "sun" in the Zodiac, in the sign of Aquarius, andOannes, the man-fish, the semi-demon, is Vishnu in his first avatar; thus giving the key to the double source of the biblical revelation.

      And a short description of "Matsya the Fish"
      Vishnu Incarantion Avatar

      Matsya the Fish - Saved humanity and the sacred Veda text from the flood. 

      The first avatar, Matsya the fish, was taken by Vishnu at the end of the last Kalpa or age, when there was a deluge that destroyed the world.  Choosing a sage, Rishi Satyavrata, Lord Vishnu commanded him to gather together the seven great sages, samples of the birds, animals, plants and seeds and wait in a boat.  The gigantic golden fish then dragged the boat through the turbulent oceans all through the long night till the storm ended and Brahma created the present world.  The story is very similar to the story of Noah and the arc from the old testament of the Bible.

      And about Oannes again:

      Oannes:
      "Oannes, according to Sumerian history, introduced written language in the Mesopotamian Valley over 5,000 years ago. Many assume Oannes was merely a myth or legend of the Sumerians, other believe that he visited Earth from an extraterrestrial source, even others believe that he originated in a place like the mythical Atlantis. It is my opinion that, in order to further the goals of this site, Oannes best be considered as a traveler from a pre-existing civilization somewhere on Earth.

      Oannes and the origins of Western Civilization

      There is historical evidence that the civilization that emerged in Sumeria less than 7,000 years ago may have been preceded by an older culture. The first goal of this site is to gather and share information leading to the discovery of the civilization that existed prior to the Sumerians in Mesopotamia wherever that may be on the Earth. The second goal is to reconcile two schools of thought, the evolutionist and the creationist, in order to better study and understand the origins of this pre-existing civilization. Both the scientific base of knowledge that has been built in the last 5 centuries, and the historical records found in the histories of many Middle Eastern countries, the Bible and other religious documents can assist in this possible new discovery. 

      Below the introduction is part of the historical record, written 5,000 years ago, concerning this historical figure, Oannes. 


      Introduction 

      The history of written language began almost 6,000 years ago in the small villages of Mesopotamia. This first written language was called Cuneiform, depicted in the clay tablet above. According to Sumerian history, legend and myth, a man named Oannes introduced this development in the Mesopotamian Valley over 5,000 years ago. Many assume this character was merely a myth or legend of the Sumerians, other believe that he visited Earth from an extraterrestrial source, even others believe that he originated in the mythical Atlantis. It is my opinion that, in order to further the goals of this site, this man best be considered as a traveler from a pre- existing civilization somewhere on Earth. 

      Much is written concerning the recent bloom of civilization that began in what is now the desert of Kuwait, Iran and Iraq, the historical site of the origins of agriculture and the geographical site of the Biblical Garden of Eden. Humans have evolved on Earth over millions of years, it is only in the last 10,000 years that our species has built cities, planted orchards and fields, built wheels, written poetry... And only in the last century have we have built skyscrapers, driven cars, jets, rockets, communicated over telephone and the internet... 

      This site is dedicated to the study of ancient cities and discovery of the civilization preceding the Sumerians in Mesopotamia. According to legend, Oannes was a "fish man" who emerged from the sea in a fish skin and taught the Sumerians "letters, arts and sciences". The art of writing, cuneiform, was developed during this period and became the basis for the Aramaic language and later the Arabian alphabet."

      "Oannes: 
      The Herald of Civilization 

      The Sumerians credited the development of letters, arts and sciences to a legendary figure by the name of Oannes. He was a visitor to the Mesopotamian Valley approximately 6,000 years ago. It seems an odd thing for such a highly advanced civilization not to take credit for the development of their own written language. The Babylonian historian Berossus, writing as a Chaldean, and priest of Belus, describes the legend of Oannes in a strictly historical context. 

      Berosus writes, "In the first year there appeared from the Erythraean Sea (the Red Sea), in the region of Babylonia, a living creature, strong and terrible, named Oannes. It had the entire body of a fish, but another head stood forth beneath, under the head of the fish, and feet as of a man stood forth out of the tail of the fish. And it had the voice of a man." He continues to write stating that, "Oannes delivered to men the knowledge of writing and mathematics, and of all the branches of the arts; the plans of cities and the building of temples, the essentials of laws and customs, and the measurement of lands, and showed them the way with seeds and the gathering of fruits..." 

      If Oannes traveled to the Mesopotamian Valley and taught the Sumerians how to read and write, introduced agriculture and architecture, the civilization he came from must have archaeological evidence that scientists can discover today."

      "The following descriptions are taken from a history of Mesopotamia written in the third century BC by Berossus, a Babylonian priest whose work survives only in fragments recorded by later Greek historians." 
      - Mysteries of the Unexplained (from Robert Temple, Sirius Mystery) 

      "At Babylon there was (in these times) a great resort of people of various nations, who inhabited Chaldaea, and lived in a lawless manner like the beasts of the field. In the first year there appeared, from that part of the Erythraean sea which borders upon Babylonia, an animal destitute of reason [sic], by name Oannes, whose whole body (according to the account of Apollodorus) was that of a fish, that under the fish´s head he had another head, with feet also below, similar to those of a man, subjoined to the fish´s tail. His voice too, and language, was articulated and human, and a representation of him is preserved even to this day. 
      "This Being was accustomed to pass the day among men; but took no food at that season; and he gave them an insight into letters and sciences, and arts of every kind. He taught them to construct cities, to found temples, to compile laws, and explained to them the principles of geometrical knowledge. He made them distinguish the seeds of the earth, and shewed them how to collect the fruits; in short, he instructed them in everything which could tend to soften manners and humanize their lives. From that time, nothing material has been added by way of improvement to his instructions. And when the sun had set, this Being Oannes, retired again into the sea, and passed the night in the deep; for he was amphibious. After this there appeared other animals like Oannes." 
      - Berossus, from Ancient Fragments (Isaac Preston Cory) 

      "Oannes is the emblem of priestly, esoteric wisdom; he comes out from the sea, because the ´great deep´, the water, typifies...the secret doctrine." 
      - M. P. Blavatsky, Isis Unveiled

      Oannes
      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
      Oannes, was the name given by the 3rd century BC Babylonian writer Berossus to a mythical being who taught mankind wisdom.

      Berossus describes Oannes as having the body of a fish but underneath the figure of a man. He is described as dwelling in the Persian Gulf, and rising out of the waters in the daytime and furnishing mankind instruction in writing, the arts and the various sciences.

      Once thought to be based on the ancient Babylonian god Ea, it is now known that Oannes is in fact based on Uan (Adapa) - the first of the seven antediluvian sages who were sent by Ea to deliver the arts of civilization to mankind in ancient Babylonian mythology.
