I've seen Zecharia Stichin shredded in threads but I haven't found an independent one. So I'm going to attack the credibility of one of the main
instigators of this Nibiru hoax.
1. Misconception #1- His translation of the word elohim in the hebrew bible. He claims it's plural and means Gods. AKA the Annunaki. WHile it's
the plural form the meaning isn't plural. See fish, deer, etc.... You don't say look a herd of deers. There are also numerous times when elohim
is used in synchronicity with Yahweh, which isn't plural.
2. #2. Stichin clearly doesn't understand ancient Sumerian. If he's right every legitimate researcher in the field is wrong. I don't think so.
He makes mistakes in Hebrew that a 12 year old wouldn't make. He doesn't know the languages he claims to.
3. The sumerians knew there were 12 planets because of the cylinder seal. To put it quite simply, there are 1000s of pictures of how the sumerians
depoicted the sun. What he says is the sun is not the sun.
4.Nibiru. Look at the Chicago Assyrian dictionary. Nibiru isn't a planet. There are never Annunaki associated with it. Nibiru means "crossing
point". It's also referred to as a star but never a 12th planet. Nibiru is also referred to as Marduk meaning Jupiter. Niniru was seen every year
which means that his 3600 year cycle is false.
5. The ancient Sumerians astonomy was comparable to other societies of the day. They left few astronomical records but enough to know that they
didn't know about ANY OF THE NONVISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE PLANETS. The sumerians, by their own records, knew of 5 planets. 5. Yep 5.
6.His translation of Nephillim as people in fiery rockets isn't possible. He also can't tell the difference between Aramaic and Hebrew. An
excellent linguist no doubt.. But if his meaning of the word Nephillim is wrong, it discredits most of his hypothesis. Sitchin assumes "Nephilim"
comes from the Hebrew word "naphal" (as opposed to ARAMAIC - see below) which usually means "to fall." He then forces the meaning "to come
down" onto the word, creating his "to come down from above" translation. "Nephilim" - in the form we find it in the Hebrew Bible - COULD come
from Hebrew "naphal," but it could ONLY be translated one way in light of the spelling - "those who are fallen" (i.e., either "fallen in
battle" - which is out of the question given the context of Genesis 6 - or "spiritually fallen" / evil - which fits the context IF the sons of God
are evil). To see that the sons of God in Genesis 6 were evil divine beings and this cohabitation was evil, one needs only to turn to either Jude 6-7
and II Peter 2:4-6, or the Book of Enoch.
7.Meaning of Sumerian MU. Did you know the Sumerians had a dictionary? It means hevean or possibly rains. Not Rocketship.
8. Sitchin argues in turn that the Genesis account of the tower of Babel, where the people wanted to make for themselves a "shem," actually
describes the construction of a flying craft/rocket.there is an Akkadian word shumu. This word has its own meaning, a meaning that did in fact get
absorbed into Biblical Hebrew, from whence Hebrew shem originated. Both this Akkadian shumu and Hebrew shem mean “name” or “renown,” the word
meanings Mr. Sitchin ridicules in The 12th Planet on his way to fabricating rocket ships in Mesopotamia and the Biblical Tower of Babel story. Other
than the concocted word origin (SHU.MU), how do we know that Mr. Sitchin’s word meanings are wrong?
In the absence of any linguistic support for his rocket ships, Mr. Sitchin’s supporters might claim a linguistic cover-up. No, scholars aren’t
hiding “rocket ship” meanings in the cuneiform tablets. In fact, the discerning reader of the Sumerian and biblical Babel accounts need not
retreat to linguistics at all to know Mr. Sitchin’s theories are nonsensical. Consider first the biblical story of Genesis 11:1-9:
1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the
land of Babylon; and they dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for
stone, and slime had they for mortar. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top [may reach] unto heaven; and let us make
us a name (shem) lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the
children of men built. 6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people are one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing
will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Let us go; let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not
understand one another's speech. 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they stopped building the city.
9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord confounded the language of all the earth there: and from thence did the Lord scatter them
abroad upon the face of all the earth.
The people are not building the shem; they are building “a city and a tower” (verse 4). The Hebrew words here are not shem in either case, they
are ‘ir (“city”; pronounced ghir) and migdal (“tower”). The word shem comes later in the verse, and is the purpose for building the city
and tower – to make a great name for themselves, just what the Akkadian word shumu means! The tower is being build with brick and mortar... Yeah
rocketship materials right there.
The point is for all you stichenites out there, he is flat out wrong. His translation skills lack or are outright fabrications. He doesn't even
bother to use the sumerian dictionaries to aid him. Probably because they contradict him. Maybe its an ancient sumerian government conspiracy. The
point is if his hebrew and sumerian translations are correct then every other researcher in the field is wrong. Hebrew grammar is wrong. The ancient
sumerians didn't know what their own language meant.
Maybe his Hebrew, Aramaic and Sumerian translations are wrong because he doesn't have a legitimate degree.
