It is quite clear that Stitchin's (and all of his followers) interpreation of that seal is heavily flawed and lacks any scientific merit. To begin
with, the inscriptions on both sides of the seal say absolutely nothing about planets or anything related to astronomy. The "sun" symbol isn't even
the symbol that Sumero-Mesopatamian artists used to depict our sun, or the sun god (Shamash/Utu). It is a symbol that was used to depict stars. Both
Sumerian and Mesopotamian artists used two clearly different symbols to depict our sun (or the sun god) and stars (often portraying other gods).
It is widely accepted (by those in position to accurately study the subject) that the seal depicts a deity that is associated with fertilization, as
it clearly describes an offering being made by a worshipper(s) to a seated god who is associated with fertile harvest.
Plenty of information on this Sumerian seal can be found here.
In addition, I will provide a summary by Michael Heisner
(Ph.D, Hebrew Bible and Ancient
Semitic Languages) that demonstrates that there isn't a single text in the entire cuneiform record that:
1) Has "nibiru" as a planet existing beyond Pluto
2) Connects "nibiru" with the Anunnaki
3) Puts "nibiru" on some sort of 3600 year cycle through our solar system
Feel free to read over the enormous amount of study that went into these debates. I'm sure there's a lot of information out there that you aren't
aware of. In fact, if you are interested in doing some research of your own, this video
would be a great start. It will teach you how to begin researching cuneiform words and translations online, for free. Give it a try!
