According to Sitchin (and I know how much everybody loves him), the asteroid belt was the planet Tiamat, and when struck apart, a large chunk created
our pleanet Earth... our moon, however, was a moon of Tiamat which was to become a planet in its own right (when doing planet/moon size comparisons,
ours is too large... even when compared to other moons).
This exploded planet created the Firmament in the heavens, seperating the waters above and below (in essence, the watery Earth and Mars from the icy
moons of Jupiter and Saturn)... firmament meaning "hammered bracelet".
In accounts of missing matter/mass, this was attributed to Jupiter; from the explosion, Jupiter "absorbed" some chunks, while others became moons.
Comets, too, in this theory, are remanents of Tiamat.
Now my comments...
But with all the talk of Nibiru? If one planet was destroyed, surely the other would be as well? If Tiamat formed the asteroid belt, thus keeping
its original orbit, what of Nibiru? Wouldn't the 10th planet be more than likely a collection of space chunks instead of a single formed mass? This
might help explain the Oort Cloud, the collection of comets and asteroids outside our solar system... from being broken up, the Sun lost its grip on
Nibiru, and the pieces gathered there...
Or, in regards to Sedna, as seeing how it comes from the proper direction indicated by the Sumerians (Orion), it could, in effect, be a surviving moon
of either Tiamat or Nibiru... being of smaller size and mass, it wouldn't hold the 3600 year time frame that the 10th planet was said to have, and
so would have a longer time of orbit.
I am still sticking with my first post, though, in that the asteroid field is more than likely the remains of a tenth planet...
