    I thought Conan the Cimmerian, and his son Kull the Conquer brought down the demon worshiping Sumerians.

    I always thought it had something to do with Gozer and Volguus Zildrohar.

    Oh look, more fake science from our friends, the media.

    Actually, the established science on the history of Sumer states that the reason for the decline was soil salinity of agricultural land due to over-irrigation. Unlike the idiot predictions of catastrophes due to climate change, that's an actual thing that happens all the time.

    It's fine to challenge established science, but that's not what this article is doing. Anyone who just ignores established science and replaces it with speculation, without so much as mentioning the body of evidence and scientific study that they are contradicting, is a quack.
