Uranus is only visible with the naked eye on the clearest of nights, moves so slowly that one would have to watch it over years to notice movement without telescopic aid, and fails to show up on any known pre-Galilean sky charts.

What people seem to forget, is that NOWHERE in The Bible does it say that it is to be taken literally.
At best, The Bible can be taken to be a collection of "feel good folk stories".
In 400 years (about the time after Christ that The Bible was written) if someone was to come across Harry Potter stories, they might be forgiven for thinking that there really were wizards amongst us as there were so many copies of these stories found lying around everywhere, that this must have been an important thing that society worshipped.
Even as recently as the 1800's, The Bible was used as guiding principles only, nothing more. The idea that it should be taken literally really didn't surface until the early 20th century.
The Anunnaki As I noted in my open letter to Zecharia Sitchin, I have challenged him and other ancient astronaut researchers to produce one line of one cuneiform text that demonstrates his ideas about the Anunnaki are really in the Sumerian texts. I want to see one line of one text that says things like the Anunnaki inhabit a planet or inhabit Nibiru, or that the term "Anunnaki" means "people of the fiery rockets, that sort of thing. Now, I could drone on about Mr. Sitchin's bogus translations and understanding of the Anunnaki, but I thought of something much better. You don't need to take my word for any of this. The Sumerian texts are online in English translation and are searchable -- even by Sumerian word! I invite you -- no, I challenge you -- to click on the link below and watch me search the Electronic Text Corpus of Sumerian Literature right before your eyes for the Sumerian word "Anunnaki." Here is a PDF file of the search results, but it's best if YOU do the search, since you will be able to click through the search results and get to English translations of the hits. Do the search at the link below and see if what I'm saying is true. Mr. Sitchin is making it up when it comes to what he says about the Anunnaki.
