Really? There is no motive for the powers that be to promote Sitchins presentations. I'll believe Sitchin before I would listen to any Christian. Christians have a really bad track record when it comes to morality.

Take it or leave it ... that's the answer I got ...

Did you know that when Jesus said man will not live off bread alone but every word of god. That he was saying everything is sound.
How did they know that so long ago?

And prophecy could be nothing more then an educated guess as to what could happen?
The chances of just 48 out of the 456 prophecies being fulfilled in one person are 1 in 10 to the 157 power.
That's — 1 in 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
"All this illustrates why it is absolutely impossible for anyone to have fulfilled the Messianic prophecies by chance. In fact, a leading authority on the probability theory, Emile Borel states that once we go past one chance in 10 to the 50th power, the probabilities are so small it's impossible to think they will ever occur."
"...once we go past one chance in 10 to the 50th power, the probabilities are so small it's impossible to think they will ever occur....Mathematicians generally agree that, statistically, any odds beyond 1 in 1050 have a zero probability of ever happening.... This is Borel's law in action which was derived by mathematician Emil Borel....
Here is one last illustration of the immensity of the number 10 to the 157th power and why the science of probability shows we are dealing with the miraculous… Imagine one ant traveling at the speed of only one inch every 15 billion years. If he could only carry one atom at a time, how many atoms could he move in 10 to the 157th power of years?
He would, even at that incredibly slow speed, be able to move all the atoms in 600,000 trillion trillion trillion trillion universes the size for our universe, a distance of 30 billion light years! Again, by the laws of probability, all of this means that it is simply impossible for 48 prophecies to be fulfilled by chance. LINK

First, let me say, I'm not stating any of this in favor of the validity of Judeo-Christian mythology. It's clear the Old Testament borrowed from other mythologies of the region, which came before the time of the Isrealites, up until Leviticus (or Vayikra, if we are being official).
So all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah. They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not follow your ways; now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have.”
But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.” 1 Samuel 8:4-9

Even without Sitchen and Von Daniken, there are enough anomalies in the world to raise an eyebrow and hint towards the ancient astronaut theory, and there is no evidence to rule out that they aren't our creators. Yes, you cannot prove a negative, but for me AA theory satisfies my curiosity to some degree. It does link religion and evolution together quite nicely from my perspective too... So, discrediting Sitchen does nothing in the big picture, because the truth is just the truth, and nobody has found it with absolution yet.
Today, we are descending straight back into times like the Dark Ages and the ancient world, including ancient Greece, ancient Rome, Babylon etc, as true faith in Jesus Christ dissolves and is replaced by the false anointing of the serpent - popularly known as kundalini. Our churches and secular society are descending into superstitions of those times - rubbing statues for good luck, worshipping angels and demons, calling psychic hotlines, going to palm readers, consulting people who think they speak to the dead, playing with ouija boards, ghosts, believing that we are gods, aliens as "sky gods", rules and regulations covering every aspect of lives (Pharisee laws), seeing angels in the sky, goddess worship, Queen of Heaven worship, chanting, shamanism, statues bleeding, levitations, gladiator style fighting, child sacrifice, exaltation of sex, penis worship, animal whispering, lighting candles and burning incense, praying to the "god" of fortune etc .
