Hi Hanslune .... I'm not going to take the bait for the trap you have set. Yes,yes,yes
Machu Pichu for example ... How do you think some of those enormous stones were moved up a mountain? ..
You can try to answer that but i doubt you'll come up with anything so lets move on.
I would bet that Sitchin got a a lot of facts wrong .... BUT ... that does not make his entire presentation wrong does it?
Why do you think he is rocking the boat so much in regards to the dusty old "historians" who hate him ?
it's because his epic presentaion is growing by leaps and bounds according to how many followers / copycat authors/ blogs/ ats threads/ etc etc.
. are using his books as a base to investigate a new type of history.
I mean you can hardly listen to a week of coasttocoast without hearing his name referenced.
This is also the exact reason so many people like yourself are getting shook.
The thing is you cant stop it .. why you ask? It's because his presentation of the new history makes more sense ... Flat out! Whether you want to discuss how the Bible stories of genesis are more clear if you assume the gods in them were flesh and blood in stead of a "poof" omnipotent all being in the sky. The Hindu Vedas are better understood as truth like Sitchin mentions as opposed to goofy myth like dusty old historians believe. Even evolution makes more sense with sitchins DNA splice added in ... as opposed to man developing from apes.
We now know and even mainstream historians admit that Humans and Neanderthals were competing races.
What's up with that? I could go on and on and will when i have more time .... that is the beauty of Sitchin. Even if the Niburu's 3600 year eliptical orbit is total BS
... then why cant they be from Zeta Reticuli or something. Go ahead and find silly things he was wrong about
and i'll go on believing that the Nazca lines were doodles made by gods in spaceships why they waited for the mothership to come back and pick up gold.
I mean i like that theory and neither you or anyone else can prove my opinion wrong.
You'll say ... no! .... the indians made them to show where the water could be best found. I mean c'mon don't you sort of think Sitchin is right?
..... Last question and this one is important so you and I can progress with this debate.
Do you believe in UFO's and if so could they be from outer space?
“The neanderthal / human same place and time reference i made is because if you would have mentioned that say 20 years ago ... they would have called you a quack”

Has science pushed Neanderthals back to c. 450.000 years ago? It's been my understanding that they date no older, currently, than 350,000 years.
To the other guys point, I graduated in 1981. Science was teaching us then that Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens (Modern Man) were contemporary, or nearly so. Both believed to be offshoots of Homo Erectus. What would have been the point of modifying Neanderthals when Homo Sapiens already existed?

The problem with the Annunaki story is that there is no evidence for it. So we had aliens on earth for 450,000 years and they never left a trace?
The 450,000 was referring to a Sitchin concept, it has no meaning in a scientific discussion.
Yeah it doesn't make much sense to make two types of human slaves, neither of which does any work for ya! Sitchin ideals are like tissue paper. It looks okay, sound kool but falls apart at the touch of a fact based reality, like said paper in hot swirling water.
Sitchin is just silly stuff

Sitchin does read well doesn't he? I found his early book entertaining but there is a problem. They aren't actually based on anything remotely approaching reality, much of his materials are made up or gross misinterpretation of the evidence.
I would suggest you try to balance his ideas with materials from actual historians and archaeologists. You'll find that the Sumerians and the Ubaidians did some amazing things.

The first known civilization, the Sumerians, rose over eight thousand years ago.
The little that we know of them was left behind on rocks. One of the most interesting and perplexing things they left behind was this.
A perfect depiction of our heliocentric solar system, with the moon included (the Sumerians considered the Moon a planet). Pluto and Charon are even depicted as a tiny pair. We only discovered Pluto in 1930, and in 2005 that it and Charon are a double planet.
The most interesting part of the picture is the twelfth body way out in the distance to the right.
This would be Sedna.
Discovered in 2003, it easily could have been right around the area depicted in the Sumerian star map over eight thousand years ago.
This proves that the first know civilization, the Sumerians, had knowledge that was just as advanced as our current knowledge, if not more.
