I think in regard to what you were just talking about, we have to be careful to not attribute extraordinary importance to possibly ordinary events.
Sitchin and others have simply take the attitude that perhaps the ancient Sumerians were putting down on their clay tablets history...
After years of dedicated translation and study, Sitchin realized that the biblical Nefilim and the Sumerian Anunnaki represented the same concept-that in the Earth's most distant past, beings came down from the stars and founded the earliest civilizations, a theme which has run through nearly all secret societies, from Freemasonry to the Thule Society, as previously reported.

actually, I think what he was saying is not that the world would be destroyed, just changed like it has in times past (like causing the great flood, lots of lives lost, etc etc)
Could be wrong, but that's what *I* got out of what he had to say

Again, read the book The 12th Planet..
according to the book (which is by Sitchin).. the Anunnaki were beings who came from Planet X to 'vacation' in a way on earth.. While here they had a lower ranking 'men' (which were the Nephilim) and had them do physical labor for them.. digging up resources and so forth.. eventually the Nephilim refused.. so they all came up with a plan to create a working man that would do the labor for them.. and thus came us *humans*.. We were genetically manipulated from a species already on earth that impregnated one of the female Anunnaki.. after a few tests we were thus created...
...more than four billion years ago, Nibiru... entered our solar system, narrowly missing a large planet called Tiamat, which cracked due to the gravitational stresses.
In a subsequent pass by Nibiru-in Sitchin's early works he refers to this orb by its Babylonian name Marduk-Tiamat was actually struck and then bombarded by Nibiru's attendant moons... the other half of the planet was knocked into a new orbit closer to the sun. This fragment over time coalesced into Earth. It was accompanied by one of Nibiru's moons (Kingu) which became our own satellite.
