Sitchin is a fraud, plain and simple. He claims to be the only person who can read a language. How is this possible? If one honest researcher cracks a
language, he can teach others, the solution can be applied to all available documents, and they should all make perfect sense in the language as it is
If there are too few documents, you can't come to a solid conclusion, but otherwise you're either right or your wrong. If you're the only one who
believes, odds are that you're wrong.
If you make the dire mistake of believing Sitchin and reading the "work" (or fantasy) of his supporters, you will quickly find yourself in a sea of
As an example, I encourage you to check lycos then wikipedia for "enki", the sumerian flood story, and "the pyramid war". Throw Sitchin's name
into the search if you like.
For the most part, a "scholar" in the tradition of Sitchin will mix and match Sumerian, Assyrian, and Babylonian versions of the mythology. Often
they display an inability to differentiate between distinct characters of similar names, especially in the case of Enki.
Best of all though, they simply made up a whole story which is reffered to as "The pyramid war" which merges the two Enki characters, misunderstands
his relationship to Enlil, and proceeds to build an entirely false story about a war in which the pyramids feature heavily as advanced weapons
platforms, fortresses, and possibly even space ships.
As I mention from time to time, Sitchin isn't even taken seriously by some guests on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. I love that show,
especially when they have Michio Kaku on, but the fact is that it is a leading purveyor of psuedo-historical science fiction. If you can't be taken
seriously on C2C AM, you ought to be stripped of your first and second amendment rights for the good of the public.
