Nibiru, Marduk and Tiamat
Another hypothesis of the missing planet between Mars and Jupiter comes from the Sumerian Legend of Creation and is related to the Legend of Maldek
according to some. Ancient Sumerian texts indicate that Tiamat (an ancient planet of which Earth is a half of) was struck by a large planet, which
moved it into its present orbit that we know today, and also created the Earth's moon and the Asteroid Belt. The planet "Marduk" (the Sumerian
"Nibiru"), as it came into the solar system on its 3,600-year clockwise (retrograde) elliptical course, struck Tiamat, which was moving in its
ordained counterclockwise orbit.
One of Marduk's satellites struck Tiamat first, followed by two more of Marduk's moons. Then Marduk itself, an enormous cosmic entity, struck
Tiamat, smashing one half of the planet into pieces, which became what the Sumerians called the Great Band. The remaining half of the planet, which
was struck by a smaller moon of Marduk, was catapulted into a new orbit, along with a chunk of material which became its moon. According to the Enuma
Elish(The Sumerian Epic of Creation), Tiamat's original moons were dispersed, many changing the direction of their orbits and rotations.
Atlantis Rising and Zecharia Sitchin, proponents of the Nibiru theory, had this to say from their studies of the Enuma Elish:
"[A] planet once existed between Mars and Jupiter, known either as Maldek or Marduk. Although its inhabitants were highly advanced
technologically and space travel was routine for them, their technical ability exceeded their better sense, and their planet exploded, creating the
asteroid belt that exists today. Before the final detonation, however, some of the Mardukians travelled to Earth and seeded a civilization that
eventually became Atlantis. When these former denizens of Marduk interbred with the primitive beings that pre-existed on the earth at that time, they
began the heritage of our own species, approximately 20,000 years ago."
"...these revelations are distinctive in that Marduk is claimed to have been destroyed as a planet and now continues to exist only on the astral
plane. This subtle world is where many people on Earth go after their demise, to continue living an earth-like existence, but in their astral bodies.
Interestingly, people on Marduk apparently have a limited vision of themselves; like the physical earthlings they once were, they believe that their
astral planet is the full extent of reality. Many Mardukians do not acknowledge the existence of life on the physical Earth; rather, many believe that
their notions of an earlier existence in physical form are just bad dreams!"
"This other planet was responsible for shattering the moons gravitationally that caused Saturn's rings and for turning Uranus on its side, so
that it has a highly inclined axis. And - this also caused Pluto to release from Saturn and come into its own orbit."
"This planet, of course, that caused all the havoc was/is Nibiru. It is our 10th planet - not really the 12th."
