In 1976 Zecharia Sitchin published The Twelfth Planet, which supplied an array of evidence to support the assertion that the earth had been visited by
ancient alien astronauts in its past. Sitchin based his conclusions on the written records of Sumer, the “sudden civilization” that sprang up
virtually overnight in the Tigris-Euphrates Valley of modern Iraq. Historians can’t begin to plausibly explain how Sumerians were transformed from
Stone Age farmers to extremely sophisticated city dwellers almost instantly around 5,000 years ago. The mystery is so deep and so profound, few
historians dare attempt to deal with it.
Sumerians used a cleverly subtle graphic technique known as kuniform, which is readily acknowledged as the first form of writing. The wedges were
pressed into clay tablets that were then put into the first clay ovens and fired into stone to provide what became the gold standard of knowledge in
all subsequent cultures: written in stone.
Historians are so baffled by the things Sumerians wrote, they classify nearly all of it as “myth,” nothing more than flights of fancy by
surprisingly creative “primitives.”
Sitchin rejected the “myth” title officially applied to Sumerian writings, and treating them as the true history Sumerians said they were. Taking
a close look he found an astonishing array of facts that could be corroborated by modern research. What he found was literally mind-boggling in 1976,
and it remains so today.
Sumerians wrote in stone over 4,000 years ago that superior beings from beyond earth lived among them as their lords and masters, and in far earlier
times actually created humans “in their own image, after their own likeness” ...words exactly copied 2,000 years later to be incorporated into
The Sumerians always referred to their gods in a multiple sense and never with upper case emphasis. They wrote about those gods in matter-of-fact
terms, describing them as flesh-and-blood beings with whom they could have sex, produce hybrid offspring, even occasionally marry. And Sumerian
knowledge went much deeper. They had a plausible explanation for how our solar system came to have its unusual lineup of planets and moons.
The Sumerians wrote that our immediate solar system contained nine planets plus one other, a tenth, traveling in a 3600-year elliptical orbit around
the sun. That planet they called Nibiru, the home world of their gods, whom they called the Anunnaki. This immediately negates the objection that
off-world beings couldn’t make a journey to earth from the closest star systems in anything approaching a reasonable timeframe. These gods came from
our neighborhood, so to speak, from just around the corner.
The Sumerians also counted planets from the perspective of the space-faring gods on Nibiru, from the outside in, calling earth the seventh, rather
than the third rock from the sun. And, with a stunning flash of insight, they wrote that when viewed from “on high” in the heavens, Uranus and
Neptune looked like “blue-green watery twins.” Most astronomers assumed anything past Saturn was likely to be a cold dead rock, so it came as
quite a surprise to see photographs from Voyager 2 in 1986, and again in 1989, proving the Sumerians were right. Uranus and Neptune were made of
How could the Sumerians know such things? How could they know Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto were even there, much less how they looked if viewed up close
in space? We didn’t learn about the existence of those three planets until 1781, 1846, and 1930, respectively. How could the Sumerians know about
any of it, much less all of it? Simple…they say their gods told them.
They were refreshingly candid about it. All they knew, all they were, their very existence was owed to the Anunnaki gods who created them, created
their “sudden” culture and civilization. They wrote of an astonishingly active history thrust upon them by living on earth at that unique time, in
that unique place. Yet the vast majority of people in the world today have no idea any of this ever existed.
The Sumerians introduced the world to twelve signs of the zodiac, the same ones that have come down to us today intact, the same twelve that have
passed through the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and all cultures in between. The Sumerians also had twelve major Anunnaki gods (the same twelve of
Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and others) ruling in Sumer over a plethora of lesser gods. the Sumerians claim that these Anunnaki gods used human slaves
and servants they engineered to make their lives easier on what had to be a harsh outpost on a planet far distant and different from their own.
Did ancient alien visitors genetically manipulate human DNA?
nibiru has alwats intrigued me. some parts of the story seem maybe a little tall or far fetched but all in all it has ring of truth or at least of
plausibility to it that many subject discussed on here are sorely lacking.
