Not true at all.

Sumer region was named after Noah's son post global flood. The bible is the true account predating others.

Babylon and the Bible
Author: Professor Walter J. Veith, PhD

Two hundred years ago, scholars doubted whether Babylon ever existed. The only record could be found in the Bible. Critics used the story of Babylon, and what they called its "non-historic kings," to discount Scripture. However, Babylon was discovered and excavated in 1898.

We know today that Babylon was one of the first cities in the world, and founded by Nimrod, great-grandson of Noah (Genesis 10:9-10). Archaeologists have found his name on many inscriptions and tablets, while a massive head of Nimrod has been excavated near Calah on the Tigris River.

Sumeria is located in the Land of Kish (Kush or Cush) founded by son of Noah's son Ham.

"Kish was occupied beginning in the Jemdet Nasr period (3100 BC), gaining prominence as one of the pre-eminent powers in the region during the early dynastic period.

The Sumerian king list states that it was the first city to have kings following the deluge, beginning with Jushur."

"Cush, son of Ham. The Empire of Kush to the south of Egypt is known from at least 1970 BC, but this name has also been associated by some with the Kassites who inhabited the Zagros area of Mesopotamia, the Sumerian city of Kish in the Land of Kish."

Bible right again!
 Quoting: ACC 10882066


Sumerian written documents date to c. 3100 BC. Literary works date to c. 2600 BC

Noah's Biblical flood occurred c. 2300 BC - 2500 BC - Noah's son absolutely did NOT found Sumeria.

After the Sumerian civilization came the Akkadian civilization, after which came the Babylonian civilization you speak of c. 1867 BC, and this is the City of Babylon that the Bible credits Nimrod's founding; however, a number of historical chronicles credit Sargon of Akkad as the founder of Babylon.

Old Testament writings are loosely dated c. 1300 BC to 400 BC, and it absolutely does take its stories from the Sumerian writings which are dated thousands of years earlier.

You can't make statements like 'the Bible is the true account predating others" because, it's simply not true!
