Hi, maybe being a little older than most on this great site, I (vaguely) remember a similar view from Velikovski from the 1950's. Mix such theories in with 'experts' such as Von Daniekem and the $'s, Euros or Swiss Fancs start rolling in...?

Immanuel Velikovsky
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Immanuel Velikovsky at the 1974 American Association for the Advancement of Science Conference in San FranciscoImmanuel Velikovsky (Иммануил Великовский) (Vitebsk, June 10, 1895 (NS) – November 17, 1979) is a Russian-born American independent scholar, best known as the author of a number of controversial books reinterpreting the events of ancient history, in particular the US bestseller Worlds in Collision, published in 1950.[1] Earlier, he played a role in the founding of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel, and was a respected psychiatrist and psychoanalyst.

His books use comparative mythology and ancient literary sources (including the Bible) to argue that Earth has suffered catastrophic close-contacts with other planets (principally Venus and Mars) in ancient times. In positioning Velikovsky among catastrophists including Hans Bellamy, Ignatius Donnelly, and Johann Gottlieb Radlof, the British astronomers Victor Clube and Bill Napier noted ". . . Velikovsky is not so much the first of the new catastrophists . . . ; he is the last in a line of traditional catastrophists going back to mediaeval times and probably earlier."[2] Velikovsky argued that electromagnetic effects play an important role in celestial mechanics. He also proposed a revised chronology for ancient Egypt, Greece, Israel and other cultures of the ancient Near East. The revised chronology aimed at explaining the so-called "dark age" of the eastern Mediterranean (ca. 1100 – 750 BCE) and reconciling biblical history with mainstream archeology and Egyptian chronology.

In general, Velikovsky's theories have been vigorously rejected or ignored by the academic community.[3] Nonetheless, his books often sold well and gained an enthusiastic support in lay circles, often fuelled by claims of unfair treatment for Velikovsky by orthodox academia.[4][5][6][7] The controversy surrounding his work and its reception is often referred to as "the Velikovsky affair".[8][9][10]

Without burdening this thread with prolific linkspam, there's a lot of information that supports an Earth impact with a large body... and it would have been available to Sitchin in the '70s. Are his books art imitating life or life imitating art?

Is it more likely that other experts in Sumerian translations are wrong and only Sitchin is right, or that Sitchin weaved knowledge available in the 1970s into his own fantasies?

If you enjy historical mysteries regarding ancient recordings of Earth impacts, forget Sitchin and look at the volumes of research on the Picts of the ancient British Isles.

Now here's a symbology with a truly lost meaning... no bad translations required.

Funny how so many people believe this man without looking into it themselves. I've read all of his books, and have come to the conclusion that nothing he says can be proved...than again, there are a lot of ancient astronauters out a way, I'm one of them, but not blindly. BTW, you're avatar is my new favorite, I used to be a wrestler, and Eddie was an inspiration. Thanks for sharing his memory.

It's always the same people without any astronomy backround that support nibiru garbage.

I just finished reading Marrs, Above Top Secret. The last chapter on 2012
was fascinating, especially the suspension of ALL news about the arrival of this planet. Has anyone heard of a good website and/or book that is updated
with the latest information?

Hardly! Read the last chapter in Above Top Secret! It quotes quite knowledgeable astronomers! There is also a book, The Return of Planet X, by
Rand, a PhD. There have been articles in the press, plus scientific journals about this subject until the lid was slammed on the whole topic, for reasons that are not that unusual with the powers that be.

So, if the diagram on the seal represents a constellation - which one?

Considering that we are in an area of conjecture by all who examine the available info,
it is pretty arrogant to call Sitchin’s work bunk.
“Nothing he says can be proven”? And the PHD’s opinion can be proven, or the words of his other detractors?

There is nothing about the subject that can be proven.

The fact that Sitchin made money on his books, is not evidence that his work is false.

As to the moon of Jupiter and other planets, be aware that Jupiter in just the past few years has acquired at 11 more moons.
eleven more moons

The bible mentions a cubed shaped object????????????????
The Borg!!!!

When it comes to translating any truly dead language, then that logic is slightly flawed.

Sitchin says inscription (xa) says A.
Hundreds of scholars say inscription (xa) says B.

But the language is dead, so who knows!

However, do you believe any of the translations from the Maya calendar?

And, hypothetically, if someone was to come along and say something else, would you consider what they said, if it didn't agree with ideas you were comfortable with that had been based on Maya scholars?

I'm still on the side of the people who know how to read the script, rather than Sitchin. They have study on their side. He has his armchair.

My point, I guess, is that if you disregard one, then you must disregard all of them.

ANYONE could come along and say some fruity thing like 'OK so everyone who can read the Maya script is wrong except me, and I say it says THIS. Purple monkeys from Alpha Centauri are coming back in 2015 in big yellow donuts made of clay.'

And you'd *have* to give it credence.

As to the Maya script - I wonder what they are calling purple monkeys.
The yellow donuts - flying saucers...

I don't find it necessary to "believe" what Sitchin or others are writing.
I regard it as interesting.
When I have finished reading I know somethings that I did not know before.
It gives me a base upon which to build other information as it comes in.

They aren't. But if they were, and you credit Sitchin, then you'd have to seriously sit down and think about that too without brushing it off, no matter how ridiculous it was.

People from an exceedingly elliptically orbiting planet requiring hybrid slaves to mine gold for their atmosphere to keep the heat in (Does *anyone* know how to explain that!?) indeed.

Could be some technology we are unaware of, I hear people possibly saying..

Or maybe it's gravy from the posterior.

We got to get over the myth that what the Sumerians referred to as "nibiru" is a planetary body on a 3,600 year orbit that enters our inner solar system.

It's simply NOT! Sorry....
