Bode's law, better called the Bode-Titius Rule, was first published by Johann Daniel Titius, but did not become well known until it was republished by Johann Elert Bode. It is supposed to predict the distances of the planets from the sun in astronomical units by the formula
0.4 + 0.3 · 2n
Planet Calculation Prediction Actual
Mercury 0.4 + 0 · 0.3 0.4 0.39
Venus 0.4 + 1 · 0.3 0.7 0.72
Earth 0.4 + 2 · 0.3 1.0 1.00
Mars 0.4 + 4 · 0.3 1.6 1.52
Ceres 0.4 + 8 · 0.3 2.8 2.77
Jupiter 0.4 + 16 · 0.3 5.2 5.20
Saturn 0.4 + 32 · 0.3 10.0 9.54
Uranus 0.4 + 64 · 0.3 19.6 19.19
Neptune 0.4 + 128 · 0.3 38.8 30.07
but is usually represented by a table as shown here. The second column in the table is supposed to be the calculation from that formula of the distance of each planet, the third column the result of that calculation. The fourth column shows the actual average distance from the sun for each planet.
Uranus was discovered after Bode's publication, but the rule likely played no role in that discovery. There was no reason then to suppose that Saturn wasn't both the outermost planet and the last entry in the table. Ceres is considered to be a major triumph of the Bode-Titius rule, Neptune its major defeat.
Though the Bode-Titius rule played no part in the discovery of Uranus, that discovery was considered to be strong support for the validity of the rule. Science rightly favors theories which are a good fit for new data discovered after a theory was developed.
Ceres was discovered by chance, not by application of the Bode-Titius rule. Nevertheless, its orbit fit the rule so perfectly that there had been active search for a planet at that distance and the discovery was considered to be another vindication.
The Bode-Titius rule was used in the calculations that led to the discovery of Neptune. Only later was its orbit calculated precisely and found not to fit.

I will not even begin to comment on all the facets that spell disaster for your theory, but we can start with an actual theory that coincides with your implausible gravity bone breaking.... the earths gravity has not always been constant through out history!

Evidence for common descent may be found in traits shared between all living organisms. In Darwin's day, the evidence of shared traits was based solely on visible observation of morphologic similarities, such as the fact that all birds — even those which do not fly — have wings. Today, the theory of evolution has been strongly confirmed by the science of DNA genetics. For example, every living thing makes use of nucleic acids as its genetic material, and uses the same twenty amino acids as the building blocks for proteins. All organisms use the same genetic code (with some extremely rare and minor deviations) to translate nucleic acid sequences into proteins. Because the selection of these traits is somewhat arbitrary, their universality strongly suggests common ancestry.
Life does not spontaneously appear in the universes; the Life Carriers must initiate it on the barren planets. They are the carriers, disseminators, and guardians of life as it appears on the evolutionary worlds of space. All life of the order and forms known on Urantia [the name of Planet Earth] arises with these Sons, though not all forms of planetary life are existent on Urantia.
The corps of Life Carriers commissioned to plant life upon a new world usually consists of one hundred senior carriers, one hundred assistants, and one thousand custodians. The Life Carriers often carry actual life plasm to a new world, but not always. They sometimes organize the life patterns after arriving on the planet of assignment in accordance with formulas previously approved for a new adventure in life establishment. Such was the origin of the planetary life of Urantia.
When, in accordance with approved formulas, the physical patterns have been provided, then do the Life Carriers catalyze this lifeless material, imparting through their persons the vital spirit spark; and forthwith do the inert patterns become living matter.
The vital spark--the mystery of life--is bestowed through the Life Carriers, not by them. They do indeed supervise such transactions, they formulate the life plasm itself, but it is the Universe Mother Spirit who supplies the essential factor of the living plasm. From the Creative Daughter of the Infinite Spirit comes that energy spark which enlivens the body and presages the mind.
In the bestowal of life the Life Carriers transmit nothing of their personal natures, not even on those spheres where new orders of life are projected. At such times they simply initiate and transmit the spark of life, start the required revolutions of matter in accordance with the physical, chemical, and electrical specifications of the ordained plans and patterns. Life Carriers are living catalytic presences which agitate, organize, and vitalize the otherwise inert elements of the material order of existence.
The Life Carriers of a planetary corps are given a certain period in which to establish life on a new world, approximately one-half million years of the time of that planet. At the termination of this period, indicated by certain developmental attainments of the planetary life, they cease implantation efforts, and they may not subsequently add anything new or supplemental to the life of that planet.
During the ages intervening between life establishment and the emergence of human creatures of moral status, the Life Carriers are permitted to manipulate the life environment and otherwise favorably directionize the course of biologic evolution. And this they do for long periods of time.
When the Life Carriers operating on a new world have once succeeded in producing a being with will, with the power of moral decision and spiritual choice, then and there their work terminates--they are through; they may manipulate the evolving life no further. From this point forward the evolution of living things must proceed in accordance with the endowment of the inherent nature and tendencies which have already been imparted to, and established in, the planetary life formulas and patterns. The Life Carriers are not permitted to experiment or to interfere with will; they are not allowed to dominate or arbitrarily influence moral creatures.
Upon the arrival of a Planetary Prince they prepare to leave, though two of the senior carriers and twelve custodians may volunteer, by taking temporary renunciation vows, to remain indefinitely on the planet as advisers in the matter of the further development and conservation of the life plasm. Two such Sons and their twelve associates are now serving on Urantia.

I am with you 100% my brother. Annanaki were the descendents and are the inhabitants of Nibiru (or Sedna) but watch out there are the descendents of the outcast race of SATAN!
