It's actual origin stems from the original creation story written in stone some 6,000 years ago... The ancient tale of Nibiru's Celestial Battle is
actually scientifically sophisticated, and current advances in astronomy have recently corroborated certain aspects of the Sumerian cosmogony:
Ancient Sumerian texts indicate that the Earth (" Tiamat ") was struck by a large planet, which moved it into its present orbit, and created the
Moon and the Asteroid Belt. In his books, The Twelfth Planet and The Cosmic Code, Zecharia Sitchin outlines this "celestial battle" as described in
the Babylonian text called Enuma elish. The planet "Marduk" (the Sumerian " Nibiru "), as it came into the solar system on its clockwise
elliptical course, struck Tiamat, which was moving in its ordained counterclockwise orbit. One of Marduk's satellites struck Tiamat first, followed
by two more of Marduk's moons. Then Marduk itself, an enormous planetary body, struck Tiamat, smashing one half of the planet into pieces, which
became the Earth's Moon and the "Great Band" (Asteroid Belt). The other half of the planet, which was struck by a smaller moon of Marduk, was moved
into a new orbit, along with a chunk of material which became its moon. The new planet was then called "KI," meaning "cleaved one." The Earth's
original moons were dispersed, many changing the direction of their orbits.
the planet where God the creator resides is referred to in the Bible as Olamin, the plural of Olam. The meaning of "olam" in the ancient world was a
measure of a really long time, specifically related to the span of time between the periodic disappearance and reappearance of the planet
Marduk/Nibiru on its vast 3,600 year elliptical orbit. The domain of Olamin was described as a kingdom which encompasses many worlds. According to
Robert Temple, in The Sirius Mystery, the Dogon tribe of Mali call this planet "the egg of the world," and they say it is the origin of all things.
They say of this planet that it is "the center of all things and without its movement no other star could hold its course." They say it is made of a
heavy metallic compound called "sagala." The Sumerians also wrote that this planetary "god," Nibiru, "remade our solar system and remakes the
Earth on its near passages."

Why there is a strange gravitational "pull" on Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, which indicates there is another body of significant size beyond
Alan Alford writes that the discovery of new planets in the last two hundred years owes more to mathematics than to bigger telescopes. Mathematical
irregularities in the orbits of the outer planets, in particular, strange wobbles and gravitational anomalies noted in the orbits of Uranus, Neptune
and Pluto, have prompted astronomers over the past hundred years to search for a large planetary body in the outer solar system. Based on mathematical
evidence, astronomers have been so sure of the reality of this planet that they named it Planet X. The name stands for the tenth planet, as well as
the mathematical symbol for an unknown quantity.
On June 17, 1982, a NASA press release from Ames Research Center officially recognized the possibility of "some kind of mystery
object" beyond the outermost planets. Various press releases around this time confirmed that scientists were indeed looking for the infamous Planet
X. For instance, Astronomy magazine published an article in December of 1981 entitled "Search for the Tenth Planet," and another article in October
of 1982 entitled "Searching for a Tenth Planet." In addition, Newsweek covered the story of Planet X on June 28, 1982 in an article entitled "Does
the Sun Have a Dark Companion?" This article implied that the tenth planet actually orbits a two sun (binary star) system, but we cannot see the
other sun because it is a "dark" star. The article stated:
"A 'dark companion' could produce the unseen force that seems to tug at Uranus and Neptune, speeding them up at one point in their orbits
and holding them back as they pass. The best bet is a dark star orbiting at least 50 billion miles beyond Pluto. It is most likely either a brown
dwarf, or a neutron star. Others suggest it is a tenth planet since a companion star would tug at the other planets, not just Uranus and Neptune."
The Washington Post covered the story of Planet X on the front page on December 31, 1983 called "Mystery Heavenly Body
Discovered." This story reported that the Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS) detected heat from an object about fifty billion miles away. A
report of an interview with chief scientist Gerry Neugebauer from Jet Propulsion Laboratories appeared in the story. The article stated:
"A heavenly body possibly as large as the giant planet Jupiter and possibly so close to Earth that it would be part of this solar system
has been found in the direction of the constellation Orion by an orbiting telescope aboard the U.S. infrared astronomical satellite. 'All I can tell
you is that we don't know what it is,' said Gerry Neugebauer, chief IRAS scientist."
The Post article went on to explain that this mysterious object has never been seen by optical telescopes on Earth or in space,
but its infrared heat signature was detected twice by IRAS as it scanned the northern sky between January and November of 1983. The second infrared
observation of the body, which is so cold it casts no light, noted that the body appeared not to have moved in six months. This suggested that the
object is not a comet, since it probably would have moved. The article also explained that the infrared telescope aboard IRAS, which is able to detect
very cold objects, calculated that the heavenly body was so cold that its temperature is about 459 F below zero.
Astronomers suggested it was a "giant gaseous planet, as large as Jupiter," and is so close that "it would be the nearest heavenly body to Earth
beyond the outermost planet Pluto." This would make it part of our solar system. The article explained that there had been some speculation that the
object "might be moving toward Earth." However, Cal Tech's Neugebauer was careful to "douse that idea with as much cold water as I can." He
pronounced with certainty that this object "is not incoming mail." The US News World Report on September 10, 1984 published an article called
"Planet X - Is it Really Out There?" This article had the following to say about Planet X:
"Shrouded from the sun's light, mysteriously tugging at the orbits of Uranus and Neptune, is an unseen force that astronomers suspect may
be Planet X - a 10th resident of the Earth's celestial neighborhood. Last year, the infrared astronomical satellite (IRAS), circling in a polar orbit
560 miles from the Earth, detected heat from an object about 50 billion miles away that is now the subject of intense speculation."
The article went on to say that scientists are hopeful that the Pioneer 10 and 11 space probes will locate the object, which they
noted was possibly a "brown dwarf," a protostar that never got hot enough to become a star. Others astronomers, however, argue that the object is a
"dark, gaseous mass that is slowly evolving into a planet." The article quoted Neugebauer as stating: "If we can show that our solar system is
still creating planets, we'll know that it's happening around other stars, too." Contrary to this information, according to the ancient Sumerian
texts, our solar system is not still creating planets, and this planet has been with us all along. It would appear that the media spin being put on
Planet X is a clear attempt to call it something else besides "incoming mail."
The media was quiet on the subject of Planet X for the next few years. Finally, an article by R. Harrington in The Astronomical
Journal dated October 1988 supplied the details of continuing mathematical modeling of this planet. The article suggested the mysterious planet was
three to four times the size of Earth, and its position was three times further from the Sun than Pluto. Mathematical modeling also suggested that
Planet X had an extreme elliptical orbit of 30 degrees. A NASA/ARC press release published in Newsweek on July 13, 1987 disclosed that "an eccentric
10th planet may - or may not - be orbiting the Sun." The article stated that NASA research scientist John Anderson "has a hunch Planet X is out
there, though nowhere near the other nine." The article concluded, "if he is right, two of the most intriguing puzzles of space science might be
solved: what caused mysterious irregularities in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune during the 19th Century? And what killed off the dinosaurs 26
million years ago."
The reference to killing off the dinosaurs seems to indicate that something more is known about this planet than NASA is letting
on. Is this in fact a reference to the planet Nibiru of ancient infamy, the planet which, according to ancient sources, did in fact strike the Earth
(Tiamat) in ancient times, and gave us a moon for a thank you? Regardless of what NASA really knows, silence is golden, and, for the most part, mum
was the word on the issue of Planet X during the 1990s. Instead, scientific journals began to debunk the issue of a tenth solar system planet. In the
1990s, news stories began to dwell on "runaway planets" and "rebel planets" discovered in other solar systems. The issue of Planet X has now
become entirely befuddled with recent discoveries of 18 nearby stars with Jupiter-class planets orbiting them (last count as of October, 1999). (see
astron.berkeley.edu) Locating any new developments regarding a tenth solar system planet is akin to finding a needle in a haystack, since it's
difficult to know which "new planet" they are talking about. For instance, an October 23, 1996 AP article entitled "New rebel planet found outside
the solar system," disclosed the following:
A new planet that breaks all the rules about how and where planets form has been identified in orbit of a twin star about 70 light years
from Earth in a constellation commonly known as the Northern Cross. The new planet has a roller coaster like orbit that swoops down close to its
central star and then swings far out into frigid fringes, following a strange egg-shaped orbit that is unlike that of any other known planet.
Thus, the issue of Planet X became lost in the information shuffle. Due to the Hubble space probe, many distant galaxies, stars,
planets and brown dwarfs are suddenly being discovered all at once. This situation affords NASA the opportunity to attempt to avoid the societal chaos
that will surely ensue once everybody realizes that a sizable planet somewhere out there is actually destined to circle our own sun in the next couple
of years (2003 according to one web site). After all, who would bother to go to work, go to school, pay their bills, play the stock market, be a
loyal, taxpaying John and Jane "Doe," if they thought the end of civilization was near?
