Richard Hoagland doesn't admit to a Planet X... in fact, he had researched another's writing to show that Sitchlin's Nibiru is actually a "great
voyage". Hoagland believes that the creators of the Martian monoliths did origonate outside this solar system, but not from a tenth planet.
Sitchlin, however, doesn support one. From Sumerian carvings to their mathmatical system, he tries to prove that the tenth planet has an orbit of
3600 years, that they had gold mines in South Africa, and genetically engineered the human race.
I agree with both authors, up to a point. There was a tenth planet... stress on "was". Thereas a mathmatics formula which shows how far from any
given star a planet can orbit, and it shows that there should be one between Mars and Jupiter (ie, the asteroid field).
And logically, how could live evolve on a planet which spends a great amount of time away from the heat of the sun? Evolution could not take place...
even if you where to have the micro-organisms go into a type of suspended animation, between thaw and refreeze, there wouldn't be enough time
*Hoagland also uses this logic with Mars... there were no origional Martians... he explains the monoliths in a similiar way to Arther C Clark (the
monoliths were placed by outside aliens as markers)*
If a tenth planet does exist, why would aliens use it as an outpost? It is too distant to be effectivly used as a base of operations, especially when
Mars, Titan, and Erupa are much closer and more able to provide needed materials (which, also, would be easier to gather). An invading alien army
from a tenth planet? With an eccentric orbit that it must have, how long will its orbit be within Terrian space? We could just wait them out,
knowing that the planet will leave and not come back for another 3600 years... Or hell, why wait until now to invade? Or why invade? If they have a
technology that can allow them to live in absolute zero for thousands of years, what could they possibly want with Earth?
