(This is a report that I wrote on Dr. Zecharia Sitchin and I want to know what you think of his theories. For the two paragraphs I will post a couple
images for you look at.)
Dr. Zecharia Sitchin is a Hebrew biblical scholar with expert knowledge of ancient cultures. Sitchin concentrates all of his knowledge on the
civilization of the Sumerians in ancient Mesopotamia. He is well known for his research and is the source of a lot of controversy and in my opinion
he wouldn’t have it any other way. But, with his many enemies he also has many followers who he affectionately calls “sitchnites”. Now I am
betting that you want to know why so much controversy over this one man? I bet you haven’t even heard of the good doctor. Well in this report we
shall talk about Sitchin’s theory which I will explain to you now. Sitchin believes that in this solar system there are not just 9 planets but a
total of 12. He believes this knowledge was passed to the Ancient Sumerians by a group of aliens called the Annunaki. Now the Annunaki were
considered to be Gods and were served by the Sumerians. Also Sitchin has derived from ancient Sumerian texts that he believes that the Annunaki
genetically engineered humans to be workers for them. Sitchin also has his own theory on how the Sumerian culture fell and also he has a theory about
the coming apocalypse. Now in the next following paragraphs we will look into seven of Sitchin’s beliefs. These beliefs are Nibiru, Sumerians, The
Annunaki, human creation, destructions of Sumeria, and finally his belief on how the world will end, also known as the apocalypse.
Nibiru is the 12th planet in our solar system. According to Sitchin as he translated Sumerian texts the planet Nibiru or Marduk was caught in the
suns gravitational pull and brought into a collision course with the planet Tiamat which had a course between Mars and Jupiter. When they collided,
the end result was the planet Nibiru, Earth itself, and the asteroid belt itself. Sitchin used the comet Eros as proof for this theory due to the
asteroid being layered he said that it was a fragment of the planet Tiamat. Now the only problem I find with Sitchin theory is if earth is a piece of
Tiamat then why is the earth perfectly circular?
Now the Sumerians were an ancient and supposedly advanced culture. They used cuneiform or picture writing which Sitchin thinks he has the ability to
perfectly translate it. The destruction of this culture is of course proven but its origins have been speculated. Many think that the Sumerian
civilization was the first civilization and in fact as a Christian that is also my belief. No matter if I believe in Christ my god is still the god
of Abraham and Abraham is from the Sumerian area. I believe that Sitchin is accurate on his interpretations and I do believe that it is true that
there is another civilization in our solar system. Their purpose and their history on this planet are very debatable though.
Now the Annunaki are the aliens who originated on the planet Nibiru. They are said to be a race of creatures with many similarities to our current
civilization this day and age. They had come to this planet because they needed gold to sustain their planet’s atmosphere. As they were mining the
created the current humans to help mine, I would go in depth but that is a different are of this paper. Sitchin claims that according to Sumerian
texts the Annunaki are responsible for many things including the constructions of space ports both on mars and on earth. The space port on mars was
near of course the infamous “face” of mars which is freakily close to a drawing on a Sumerian cylinder Shown below.
Now in this picture are a Sumerian seal and a picture of the “face” on mars. If you take a look and notice that there are definite similarities
between the seal and the face. Now if you are wondering what the seal depicts well it depicts what Sitchin believes to be the Annunaki in a space
suit. Now the earth spaceport was on the Sinai Peninsula and they landed their ships in the ocean. Sitchin also believes because of Sumerian texts
that the Annunaki were able to power their spacecraft with water. Now the question you have to ask is how did the Sumerians know about all of this?
Well if you think about it all this information is VERY disprovable. Sitchin probably realized this and provide some evidence that is hard to turn
down. Look at this drawing from a cylinder:
Now if you look at the both of the figures the one on the left is what the Sumerians called an “Eagleman” which according to Sitchin is an
astronaut. The middle figures are two space craft and the figure on the right is a “Fishman” which was equipped for “splash downs” which is
the way the Annunaki supposedly landed. In the eagleman’s corner way up are 7 dots which are supposedly planets. Now, counting in the Annunaki
considered the Earth to be the seventh in. The question is in this time before telescopes had been invented to see beyond the night’s sky, how did
the Sumerians know about the other planets? Sitchin believes the Annunaki provided the Sumerians with extreme knowledge of the solar system, what do
Now on the subject of human creation, Sitchin believes that we were genetically altered to help the Annunaki mine their gold. His proof comes from
223 genes that do not have the required predecessors on the genomic evolutionary tree. Now scientists say that the 223 genes come from bacteria and
to disprove this was the fact of females. Sitchin once again believes that the Annunaki took 223 of their own genes and with their immense and
advanced technology they put these genes in primates and created the first humans. Possible but in my belief this was God’s work. In a discussion
with a higher up member of the Roman Catholic Church the member said that it is possible that the Annunaki had come to do Gods work. Being Hebrew and
believing in a God, Sitchin said it is very possible that the Annunaki are workers of god who have a bigger spiritual balance than physical balance.
The choice is yours to believe that the Annunaki are workers of god, that the Annunaki used us for manual labor, or that the Annunaki had no part in
One of the most radical ideas given by Sitchin is the way the Sumerian culture got destroyed. He believes that it was a family dispute between two
different groups of the Annunaki. While one side wanted to continue the mission on earth, the other side was going to stop and leave the planet for
good. According to Sitchin’s translation an “evil wind” which gave totally horrendous death to people had killed plants and animals too. It is
also said that it left the land barren and poison. According to Sitchin’s beliefs the Annunaki used nuclear weapons to destroy the spaceport on
earth. We know that nuclear weapons are real but did an alien race thousands of years ago use the same type of weapons to destroy a spaceport here on
earth? Once again it is up to you to believe the legend of the “evil wind”.
Now of the most speculated events predicted by Sitchin’s translation, his apocalypse theory is the most debated thing in his beliefs. Sitchin
believes that the first destruction of mankind was caused by the Annunaki planet Nibiru. The Annunaki knew about this and decided to keep it a secret
but one Annunaki had to save some of the people on earth and instructed a man on earth to build a submersible boat and put his family on it to survive
the great “flood”. We all know this story as the tale of Noah and his ark. Sitchin doesn’t believe that it was a flood that covered the world
in water but rather a thousand foot tidal wave caused by the passing of the planet Nibiru. He believes that mankind will receive the same fate the
next time the planet passes ours. The discredit I can provide is the fact of how many times the planet Nibiru has passed the Earth. According to
Sitchin the planet Nibiru has a 3,600 revolution cycle around the sun. According to my math then the planet Nibiru has passed the earth’s path in
the following years: 10,900 BC (The great flood), 7,300 BC, 3,700 BC, 100 BC, and the next time the planet Nibiru will pass the earth’s path is
3,500 AD. Now it is believable that the gravitational pull of the planet Nibiru could possible cause unsettled waters. But there just isn’t enough
proof the support it totally…You have to draw your own conclusion.
Annunaki, creation of man, Nibiru, and ancient nuclear weapons, this issue of Extreme Beliefs is definitely full of extreme beliefs. Now whether or
not all of this is true is not up to me to tell you. It is up to you to believe in this. My personal thoughts on it are that there are Annunaki and
if they did genetically alter man it was through God’s will. Did they have nuclear weapons? It’s very possible. Did they have a spaceport on
ancient Mars? That is also very possible. Many of Sitchin’s beliefs can be supported by realistic situations. As always, it is up to you to
believe it or not.
