Tiamat and Marduk, the wisest of gods,
Advanced against one another;
They pressed on to single combat,
They approached for battle.
After he had slain Tiamat, the leader,
Her band was broken, her host broken up,
The gods, her helpers who marched at her side,
Trembling with fear,
Turned their backs about so as to save
And preserve their lives.
Sitchin interprets "the host, the helper gods" to be the moons of Tiamat which "turned their backs" or changed orbital motions. He suggests that the "shattered band" became the comets and the asteroid belt. But of most importance, the bulk of Tiamat's debris fell into a new orbit and would
Astronomers announced today the discovery of the largest object in the solar system since Pluto was named the ninth planet in 1930. The object is half the size of Pluto, composed primarily of rock and ice, and circles the sun once every 288 years.
Named Quaoar (pronounced KWAH-o-ar), the object resides in the Kuiper belt, a region of the sky beyond the orbit of Pluto and about 4 billion miles (6.5 billion kilometers) from Earth. The Kuiper belt is chock full of remnants from the planet-formation era of the solar system.

does anyone remember the planet beyond pluto that was discovered back in 1999 or somewhere around then? (so not Quaoar, which was discovered in Oct 2002)

Do you know why PlanetX got such a highly elliptical orbit? that's not because it is really a planet, it is because it is a metaphor... and if you look at the vessels of the Gods in other religions you know what it does represent...
Some astronomers believe that Triton, Pluto and its moon Charon are merely the largest examples of Kuiper Belt objects. (But even if this is true, it will not affect Pluto's official designation as a "major planet" for historical reasons.)

After Quaroar, they even disputed Pluto's being correctly labelled a planet. It never should have been classified as a true planet because of it's size.
