Where did the gods come from? According to the Sumerians, the gods arrived on Earth from a planet called Nibiru. Their description of the planet Nibiru is completely in line with the salient features of nat. called the “X” planet, which has recently been sought after by modern astronomers within our solar system. This planet is thought to have an elliptical orbit that takes it into the depths of space, much farther from Pluto’s orbit – which is why it has not been discovered to this day. The scientific proof and continued search for Planet X will be discussed later in this chapter, but first we need to review the vast amount of evidence that traces the history of this planet from the earliest days of the solar system to the legendary Flood, which I date 13,000 years ago.
Our study on Nibiru / Planet X begins with an exclusive source of a 4,000-year-old Babylonian text known as Enuma Elish. In 1876, George Smith of the British Museum published his translation of the sacred Babylonian epic collected piece by piece of broken clay tiles, as shown in Figure 1 1 Smith had already caused sensational headlines around the world press with a previous translation of the text of the Flood which was similar to the biblical parable. Enuma Elish caused the same sensation because it probably represents a creation myth, 1 which is far more detailed than the brief biblical description in Genesis 1.
However, Enuma Elisha was ignored for the next century as a myth – an imaginary description of the cosmic battle of good versus evil – and the Babylonian New Year’s ritual that unfolded around the event was similarly considered pointless superstition.
To the naked eye, Enuma Elish is a tale of battles between one god and another, whose character is Marduk, the chief deity of the Babylonians. The educated scholar, however, realizes that the Babylonians were heirs to the Sumerian culture and that the vast multitude of Babylonian myths were politicized versions of the Sumerian originals. The key question is: “If the non-Sumerian ritual and political aspects are eliminated by Enuma Elish, is the story really an earlier Sumerian document of valid scientific value?”
In 1976, Zacharia Satchin offered the astonishing but still unanswered claim that Enuma Elish was a cosmological epic that painstakingly described the formation of the solar system 4.6 billion years ago! 2 Sitchin, an expert on Middle Eastern languages, realized that the descriptions of “gods” were actually descriptions of “planets”, that “winds” could be read as “satellites” 3, and that Marduk’s role was similar to the one on a planet known to Sumerians as Nibiru.
The Babylonian epic poem begins as follows: “Enuma elish la nabu shamamu” – “When in the heights the sky was not named.” It then lists the “gods” who were born of APSU (the Sun) 4 , with a description that matches the planets of the solar system in astonishing detail. Then, “in the heart of the depths,” a new and more powerful god, named Marduk, was created:
“Its members were perfect, beyond compare … inappropriate, difficult to feel. Four were his eyes, four were his ears; as he moved his lips, fire went out …
He was the highest of the “gods”, astonishing at his height; its constituents were huge, it was extremely tall. ” 5
Marduk is translated by Sitchin as a wandering planet, plunged into the solar system by an unknown cosmic phenomenon, probably ejected by a similarly unstable solar-planetary system. Its path first to Neptune, then to Uranus, shows a clockwise motion, counter-clockwise to the rotation of the other planets around the Sun. This factor will later prove to be very significant. The combined gravitational effect of the other planets sent Marduk into the heart of the newly formed solar system – to collide with a watery planet called Tiamat:
“Tiamat and Marduk, the wisest of the” gods, “advanced toward one another; they squeezed into combat; they have come to battle. ” 6
Armed with blazing fire and acquired by various winds or satellites, Marduk confronted the fierce Tiamat:
“The ruler cast down his net to deploy it; The Evil Wind, the most extreme, broke loose in front of her face. When she opened her mouth, Tiamat, swallowed it – He went down to the Evil Wind so that she did not close her lips. The fierce stormy winds then piled up around her belly; her body swelled; her mouth was wide open. He shot an arrow through her, which split her belly; slit her insides, tearing her womb. Breaking her like that, he sucked her breath away.
After killing Tiamat, the leader, her troop he dispersed, her army he destroyed. The gods, her helpers, marching on both sides, trembling with fear, turned their backs to save and preserve their lives. Thrown into the net, they were caught … The whole army of demons walking on both sides, he bound in chains, their hands tied … Tightly wrapped, they could not escape. ” 7
Thus the planet Tiamat was “destroyed”, but the act of creation had not yet been completed. Marduk was captured in orbit around the sun, forever returning to the place of the celestial battle with Tiamat. At the first collision, Marduk’s satellites crashed in Tiamat, but one orbital period later, Marduk himself “returned to Tiamat, which he himself had broken,” and the two planets collided:
“The ruler stood to look at her lifeless body. He set out artistically to dismember the monster’s body. Then, as a mussel, he divided it into two parts.
The ruler stepped on the top of Tiamat; with his weapon he released the skull; he interrupted her bloodstream; and caused the North Wind to carry it to places that were never known. ” 8
Zacharia Satchin identifies the upper (“skull”) of water Tiamat as the future Earth, moved from one of Marduk’s satellites to a new orbit, along with its largest satellite, Kingu (meaning “Grand Emissary”). The final act of creation occurred on the second return of Marduk to the place of the heavenly battle. This time, Marduk faced the other half of Tiamat:
“Half (the rest) of it rose like a screen in the sky: closing them together, as an observer, he pacified them … He twisted Tiamat’s tail to form the Great Strip as a bracelet.” 9
For two orbits of the sun, the planet Marduk / Nibiru created the sky (Belte asteroid) and Earth in addition to comets. As Satchin points out, this is identical to Day One and Day Two of Genesis! 10 He omitted to mention that the Muslim holy book, the Qur’an, also resembles Enuma Elisha:
“Do not the infidels know that heaven and earth were one solid mass, which we split in two, and that we made every living being out of water?”
One particular mystery is that of the earth’s crust – the outer layer of matter that forms the surface of the Earth. On dry soil, the continental crust is about 20 miles thick, and the “roots” of the mountains are 40 miles deep. 12 Yet under the ocean, the oceanic crust is only 5 miles thick! This anomaly is further complicated by the discovery of huge slabs of crust ‘mysteriously’ plunged ‘250 miles below the Earth’s surface! Even if we consider this crust, Earth still has less than half the amount of solid it should have compared to other planets. 13 And just to confuse things even more, the oceanic crust dates back 4 billion years!
Why is the oceanic crust relatively fresh and what force has caused the continental crust to dive? Scientists have created completely contradictory theories to explain these mysterious anomalies. For example, it is believed that the young age of the oceanic crust is probably caused by periodic “diving” into the “holding zone” of the mantle below, whereupon it is somehow recycled. On the other hand, Enuma Elish can perfectly explain anything, because it describes the Earth as half of a planet that has been catastrophically split in two, the surviving part of the Tiamat water planet. The process of continental sinking makes more sense when considered as a consequence of a catastrophic phenomenon. The ancient Sumerians were well aware of this fact; as Zacharia Satchin has already noted, the term they used for Earth was Ki,14
Twenty years after Zacharia Satchin proposed a Sumerian solution to the problem of Earth’s origin, scientists have not made any progress in offering alternative explanations. In fact, the evidence continues to support Sutchin’s statements. Recent improvements in geological dating have revealed a mysterious lack of crystalline rocks (dating to the crust) from the earliest age on Earth, the so-called Hadean Age – about 4.6 – 3.96 billion years ago. In an article in the highly acclaimed magazine, J.J.
Wehrwort recently described “the widespread early depletion of mantle chemicals (possibly as a result of continental crust extraction) 15 , while fellow researcher Richard Carlson wrote:
“Why didn’t the Earth form an abundant early crust, or if it did, where did all that old crust come from?… Data from the early 1980s … made it clear that, 3.8 billion years ago, the mantle was already depleted for bark extraction. ” 16
Evidence from the moon also provides confirmation of the cataclysm 4 billion years ago. Apollo flights found a large number of rocks, known as “breaks,” which were scattered and then mixed together by a sudden extremely high temperature. At the same time, the surface layer of the moon suddenly melted and its magnetic field was reduced to a negligible level. 17 We now know that moon craters – previously thought to be extinct volcanoes – were caused by tremendous forces about 4 billion years ago. 18
According to Enuma Elish, as Zacharia Satchin deciphered, the Moon (Kingu) was initially Tiamat’s main moon and therefore ended up in the center of the celestial battle. Her battle marks can thus be explained. The origin of the moon as a satellite on a planet larger than Earth also explains one of the great mysteries of the solar system. Surprising as it may seem, the scientists are firmly divided on how the Earth got such a big moon.
Compared to the relationship between other planets and their satellites, the Earth’s moon is too large, and this has caused huge problems for most theories about its origin. Its size rejects the likelihood that it was “captured” by Earth’s gravity. 19 The split theory (according to which the moon was thrown from Earth in a state of super-spin) also fails to explain how such a huge mass of solid could be fired, and thus led to a hybrid theory that a planet is an uninvited guest with the size of Mars – it has probably hit Earth tremendously. 20 The theory of cleavage is the most prominent and so far the least evil, but if the moon was pushed out by the larger planet Tiamat, then the size limitations of the cleavage theory are eliminated.
Some scientists have come to the conclusion of the size of the moon and its composition that it is a real planet with corresponding rights. 24 As Zacharia Satchin noted, Enuma Elish indeed claims that the moon was about to become an independent planet when it encountered Marduk. 22 It is no accident, therefore, that the Sumerians have always considered the moon, along with the rest of the planets, as a separate celestial body.
Enuma Elish also explains several apparent contradictions in the structures of the Earth and the Moon. Proponents of the theory of cleavage have emphasized certain commonalities in the cortex of the two celestial bodies such as the lack of tungsten, which is hardly a coincidence. Other studies, however, have shown significant differences in cortex and mantle 21 , while radioactive elements found near the surface of the moon are located quite deep in the Earth’s interior. The irrefutable conclusion is that the moon contains a combination of terrestrial materials and those from an external source thought to be an intruder planet. 24 But this is exactly the scenario described by the Babylonian epic!
Scientific theories about the origin of the Belt asteroid are no more successful than those about the origin of the Earth and the Moon. The official position is that asteroids are planetary-like (pre-planetary bodies), representing to this day debris from the creation of the solar system that have not completed their transition to planets. One theory suggests that instead of becoming planets, these planets-like collided too quickly and dispersed. Unfortunately, there is no scientific theory to support this contradictory explanation.
On the other hand, there is scientific evidence that claims that asteroids are debris from a catastrophic collision. Apart from the fact that this is intuitively obvious, there is an astronomical equation known as the “Law of Bode” that predicts the existence of a planet at the exact distance where the asteroid Belt orbits the Sun. 25 When the first asteroids were discovered in the early nineteenth century, the obvious explanation was some planet exploded. However, in the twentieth century, astronomers abandoned the explanation for the cataclysm in connection with the foreseeable lack of sufficient asteroid mass, suitable for the size of a blasted planet. 28As Zacharia Satchin pointed out, Enuma Elish solves this problem by determining the location of the missing mass in the split planet – the Earth itself!
Comets are also a mystery to modern science. Despite the abundance of data and research, they remain one of the most mysterious features of the solar system. These glacial planets are orbiting the sun in excessively elliptical orbits in contrast to the nearly circular orbits of the planets. Some comets return to Earth only once every few thousand years, and Kohoutek’s longest orbit is estimated at 75,000 years. They are viewed as “rebel members” of the solar system in that they orbit the sun in many different planes, and the direction of rotation is clockwise – the exact opposite of the direction of the planets.
Like asteroids, comets were once thought to be evidence of a planet exploding. 27 Science has been hampered by growing contradictory theories that they are debris from the formation of the solar system. According to some directors, comets have somehow detached themselves from the gravity of the emerging planets, creating in the outermost parts of space, beyond the planet Pluto, a multitude known as the Oort Cloud. 28 Having been “stored” in the reservoir of the Oort Cloud, for some reason some of the comets “accidentally ended up in trajectories in the inner 29 of the solar system.”
One of the few unbiased modern astronomers, Tom van Flandern, has recently tested “certain unacceptable aspects of conventional theories” about comets and, in particular, the “unlikely hypothesis of Oort Cloud.” 30 Van Flandern explores major aspects of the prevailing thesis, which fails to explain why some comets move around the Sun orbiting 1000 times farther from Pluto and why they all travel in a clockwise direction. Current theories are also unable to properly explain how such an incredible thing as the Oort Cloud was formed.
Van Flandern tests the only plausible alternative to the Oort Cloud hypothesis – the planet exploded – and notes that the mathematical model proves the comet’s overall origin. 31 It concludes that:
“Comets (they) come from an energy explosion of a body moving around the Sun at / or near the present location of the Belt asteroid …”
Just as described by Enuma Elish! And Zacharia Satchin showed that the direction followed by Marduk actually leads him in the opposite direction to the orbits of the other planets. As previously described, it was during Marduk’s first passage that Tiamat’s moons were “shattered” and many small planetary bodies (“gods”) were pushed from the impact to new orbits, “turning their backs” to follow the direction of clockwise the Marduk itself.
Meteorite studies also conclude that these comet fragments were once part of a larger planet. In 1948, Brown and Patterson conducted a grueling study and confirmed that:
“The conclusion is irrefutable – meteorites have once been an integral part of the planet.” 32 This conclusion is still undisputed to this day.
In addition to all the evidence cited above, several more anomalies in the solar system are now being attributed to a hypothetical intruder planet. These include the unusual inclination of the Jupiter axis, 34 the reverse direction of rotation of Venus 35, and the eccentric orbit of Pluto. 36 And here are the moons of Mars, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, and Jupiter – all showing signs of unnatural rotation, while the Sharon, the tiny moon of Pluto, can only be explained by collision theory. 37 Obviously, the solar system contains a legacy of a very violent past. Tom van Flandern summarizes the case of the catastrophic phenomenon (and hence Enuma Elish) as follows:
“The planet explosion hypothesis explains clearly and satisfactorily the observations. Conventional models require the discovery of many different new explanations for the numerous new observations. ” 38
Evolution and catastrophes
Did Nibiru / Planet X (other names of Marduk) complete the act of creation and then be thrown into space, or remained permanently trapped in orbit around the Sun? Could its continued membership of the solar system be taken into account in the gradual changes in the evolution of life on Earth, and could it ever sow the seed of the first life on Earth?
Planet Earth is estimated to be 4.6 billion years old, but the remains found during excavations show a complete lack of “life” in the first 600 million years. Then, about 4 billion years ago, simple single-celled life forms began to emerge (how exactly one of the most controversial issues of modern science has become). These single-celled creatures were surprisingly perfect 40, and within the next 500 million years multicellular organisms with highly evolved genetic material began to emerge.
The speed of these evolutionary developments has led many scientists to speculate that life on earth has not spontaneously evolved but originated from a life that has already evolved elsewhere. Moreover, in connection with the common genetic code of each lifeform on Earth, some scientists are convinced that there is a single source. In 1973, the Nobel laureate Franz Creek, along with Dr. Leelie Orgle, proposed that “life on Earth was probably derived from microorganisms from a distant planet.” This view, initially met with skepticism, is now widely accepted, 42 although the current consensus prefers a comet or meteor collision as a likely source. 43
In 1989, a team at Stanford University came to the conclusion that life on Earth evolved in a very short period of time, 4 -3.8 billion years ago. 44 Is the reason for the collision with Nibiru and its satellites? Ancient texts describe the planet Nibiru as aquatic and therefore suitable for the earlier development of life as we know it. Nibiru is also described as “bright”, “emitting light”, with a “glowing crown” 45 – possibly referring to an internal heat source that would allow a temperate climate even away from the sun’s rays. 46
The mystery of the origin of life on Earth is equivalent to the mystery of its subsequent evolution. Recently, it has become clear that cataclysms have played a major role in the mutation or destruction of different living things. A recently published book by Richard Leakey and Roger Lewin suggests that in five cases, some huge catastrophe has wiped more than 65 percent of the living creatures from the face of the Earth! 47 In addition, the two authors describe ten or more minor mass destruction events. The most recent of the Big Five was an event dating back 65 million years that destroyed dinosaurs.
Scientific evidence now supports the theory originally proposed in 1979 by Nobel laureate, physicist Luis Alvarez, that the 200 million-year reign of dinosaurs was terminated by a massive meteor collision. 48 Photographs taken by the US Space Shuttle showed huge concentric circles approximately 110190 miles in diameter beneath the Gulf of Mexico. The magnitude of this circular depression shows a blow twenty times more powerful than the entire nuclear potential of the world. Measurements of rock density and the presence of iridium in the limestone / tertiary boundary rock layer allowed the crater to date back to the 65 million years ago.
Leakey and Lewin date remarkable extinctions of life forms respectively to periods 440, 365, 225 and 210 million years ago. During the most dramatic of these events, 95 percent of aquatic animals were destroyed – at the end of the Permian period, 225 million years ago. There is a great contradiction to the causes that caused these extinctions – assumptions include changes in sea level, global climate change, huge tidal waves and forest fires. But now there is a growing consensus that the cause of these phenomena is rooted in cosmic influences. In February 1996, Russian scientist V. Alekseev offered proof that a group of meteorites were derived from a common parental body that suffered a space disaster approximately 380-320 million years ago. This confirms the theory,
The emerging cataclysm theory is completely in line with Darwin’s laws of evolution. As discussed in Chapter 2, evolutionary progress through mutation depends on the geographical segregation of small populations. The aforementioned scientific work by Leakey and Lewin reviews the current evidence that suggests that the first simple life forms have existed for billions of years (six sevenths of Earth’s history) with minor changes; then, 530 million years ago, life suddenly exploded with enormous variety. Other writers also note the so-called Cambrian Explosion, which testified to “the most colorful ascent of diversity ever remembered on our planet.” 50 At that time, a wide variety of complex multicellular organisms suddenly appeared, without any precursor to the living creatures ever discovered during excavations.
It is curious to note that the vast majority of Cambrian organisms have disappeared within a relatively short period of several million years, while those who have survived are thought to have evolved to present day living beings. Have these former organisms not adapted to the Earth’s natural conditions, and if so – why did they suddenly appear? Was the earth planted for the second time 530 million years ago, just as it did 4 billion years ago? And in terms of identical genetic code, were both grafts from a common source?
The existence of Nibiru in the course of an orbital catastrophe in the interior of the solar system completely coincides with the mysteries of mass extermination and rapid evolution. Daniel Whitmeier, an astrophysicist at the University of Southwest Louisiana, is convinced that Planet X explains the dinosaur’s extinction. He suggests that when the approaching planet passed a comet hoop, it was likely to push some comet debris to Earth, causing catastrophic collision. 51 Could such a phenomenon be blamed for the legendary Flood?
Proof of the Flood
More than five hundred strikingly similar legends of the great Flood have emerged from almost every culture around the world. 52 They all share a common theme – the extermination of humanity except one man and his family who survived. We in the West generally know the name of the survivor – Noah, but for the Aztecs he was Nene, while in the Middle East he was called Atra-Khazis, Utnapishtim or Ziududra. As for the ways of his escape, the Bible describes a “nod” or a floating ark, in the Mesopotamian tradition it is a submarine, and the Aztec version refers to a log with a hollow hollow. According to their legend, people were saved by becoming fish.
Ancient Middle Eastern chronicles speak of the Flood as a widespread disaster – not an event of local importance or commonplace, but a huge divider of time. The Assyrian king Ashurbanipal has left us the following description to illustrate the phenomenon:
“I can even read the carved tiles in Sumerian; I understand the enigmatic words carved in the stones from the days before the Flood. ”
Most scholars believe the Bible flood is a myth. What is the reason? The deep enmity (schism) between Religion and Science has prompted most scholars to be deeply skeptical of everything that appears in the Bible. It is a pity because the Bible contains clear, though abbreviated, historical chronicles – a chronology, unfortunately undermined by the drastic religious editing to which it was subjected. The Flood is a prime example of how a real natural phenomenon is altered by the heavy imprint of monotheistic symbolism. How could we believe that God sent the Flood to punish the human race for its diabolical sins – because if the Lord was a spiritual creature, he would never need to use the Flood? Fortunately, the authenticity of this exact story can be elucidated by other ancient texts,
As mentioned in Chapter 1, the epic poem Atra-Khazis 53explains the role of the biblical “God” as “they,” not as “He.” Moreover, this explanation, carved in detail on clay tiles, as shown in FIG. 21, alleges that “they” did not knowingly cause it. On the contrary, it was decided during the Council of the Gods that the coming Deluge, which the gods were powerless to prevent, should be kept secret by humanity. The role of the gods in the Mesopotamian Chronicles of the Flood is exactly the same as their role in other traditions. Enlil – the biblical “Lord” to whom the human race has gone astray, wished to see it destroyed. His brother Enki, who personally participated in the creation of the first Adam (LU.LU-worker), is human-friendly and usually antagonistic to Enlil. Although he was forced to take an oath of secrecy, Enki decided to warn his loyal follower and his family about the coming flood. The Chosen One was a priest from the city of Shurupak (the city of Enki’s sister-Ninharsag), whose name in Akad was Atra-Khazis – “Extremely Wise.” It is worth noting that the same meaning applies to the character Utnapisem in the description of the Flood from the Epic of Gilgamesh.
The god Enki, also known as Ea, speaks to Atra-Haziz behind a reed screen, a detail that is also found in the original Sumerian text, where the character is called ZIV. Ea [gives detailed instructions for building a submarine. The Gilgamesh Epic provides us with a dramatic and eloquent account of recent preparations when the character is told to observe when the gods themselves will leave:
“When Shamash, who commands the vibrations of twilight, will pour out a storm of eruptions – get on this ship, the laths at its entrance!”
Is there any convincing evidence that a huge flood occurred at all? Over the course of 4 hours, they received a lot of false alarms when archaeologists discovered evidence of torrential rains that subsequently turned out to be local. But can we really expect archaeologists to find signs of the Flood as they make excavations in areas where there are post-Flood cities? In fact, other fields of science have provided remarkable evidence. And they all point to a Com global disaster about 13,000 years ago.
Although not among the Big Five of Leakey and Lewin, the global extermination that happened 13,000 years ago was dramatic enough. In the Americas, scientists date back to the period 11,000-9,000 BC. the destruction of about 50 species of mammals. 56 On the contrary, the preceding 300,000 years indicate a degree of destruction of only one species of living creature for every 15,000 years. A similar model of mass extermination in 11,000 BC. occurs in Europe, Asia and Astralasia. 57
In Northern Alaska, gold mining operations have uncovered the bodies of thousands of dead animals while excavating frozen soil. Experts have failed to explain why these animals, acclimated to areas with hotter climates, are found in Alaska. 58 Further investigation reveals that they have been subjected to mass extermination. Their bodies are found in a layer of fine sand, twisted and split into an unpleasant mixture with trees and other plants. An expert from the University of New Mexico observed the following:
“Whole flocks of animals have obviously been killed together, overrun by some ubiquitous force … Such masses of human or animal bodies simply cannot be obtained in any natural way. The destruction of these animals in Alaska was so sudden that their bodies were immediately frozen without decomposing, as evidenced by the locals’ tendency to thaw the corpses and use them for food. 60
A similar story is revealed in Siberia, where the remains of many creatures, most of them in temperate climates, were found buried under frozen soil. And again we find animal carcasses mixed with uprooted trees and plants, among other traces of an unexpected and sudden catastrophe:
“The mammoths died suddenly, in extreme cold and in huge quantities. Death has come so quickly that the plants they have swallowed are still undigested.
Considerable evidence points to a major climate change and a huge flood around 11,000 – 10,000 BC, probably marking the end of the Ice Age:
“The expansion of glaciers over the last 100,000 years, as explained by the ratio of oxygen isotopes in the Atlantic depths to the equatorial Pacific, was abruptly interrupted some 12,000 years ago. The extremely rapid melting of the ice caused a sharp rise in sea level … “(Following explanation) 62
Most recently, in January 1993, the highly respected Sciennes magazine also cited evidence of “the largest flood on Earth at the end of the last ice age.” It is widely believed that the end of this glacial period, marked by sudden and dramatic climate change, occurred about 12,000 years ago. 63 The full evidence suggests that this was not a Flood caused by the mere melting of the Arctic Ice Cap, but something far more catastrophic.
In the Andes of South America, geologists have discovered traces of 12,000 feet of marine sediment! In the same area, some 13,000 feet of Tijuanaku ruins were discovered, buried under a layer of 6 feet of mud from an unknown flood source. The waters of Lake Titika-ka are slightly salted, and studies have shown that fish and crustaceans are mostly oceanic, rather than freshwater. 64Moreover, in 1980, Bolivian archaeologist Hugo Boero Rojo discovered a number of ruins similar to those of the earliest culture in Tiwanaku, 60 feet below the waters of Titicaca, off the coast of Puerto Acosta. All these facts contradict the theory that Titicaca waters sparked at the same time as the rise of the Andes 100 million years ago. On the contrary, the source of the sea water in Titicaca Lake was probably a more recent event.
Another important clue to the nature of the flood that gave rise to the Flood is the evidence of volcanic activity at the same time, which can only be caused by tectonic tension beneath the earth’s surface:
“Scattered through the depths of dirt, and sometimes among the mounds of bones and tusks themselves, there are layers of volcanic ash. There is no doubt that at the same time (with the mass destruction) there were volcanic eruptions of enormous size. ”
What force could cause the tectonic displacement of the strata at the same time and raise the sea level above the height of the Andes? The melting of the ice sheet on Earth is not a satisfactory explanation, and yet what caused the sudden melting of the ice cap? No, on the contrary, we are confronted with a sudden and violent event that carried trees and animals from one end of the globe to the other. The irrefutable conclusion is that the Earth was shaken by an extremely powerful external force.
Nibiru, Venus and the Flood
If the evidence of the Flood 13,000 years ago is as obvious as it seems, why did it take such a long period of time to make it a scientific fact? The answer lies in the deep-rooted principles of modern science – nothing is “possible” until a scientific theory has emerged to explain it. For this reason, Alfred Wegener’s idea of the sinking of the continents was neglected for 60 years before it became valid by the theory of flat tectonics. The failure to acknowledge the cataclysm that caused the Flood is therefore in the failure of scientists to find an acceptable cause for the catastrophe we have just investigated.
However, the deciphering of Enuma Elish and the evidence concerning Nibiru / Planet X really now offers a possible reason for the Flood.
Zacharia Satchin proved that Nibiru, having already been captured in orbit around the Sun, caused the Flood, destabilizing the Earth’s ice caps. The Sumerian manuscripts do claim that the Flood was caused by the planet Nibiru. Its impact was so powerful that the Earth was described as shaking from the ground up. One text quoted by Sitchin describes Nibiru very clearly:
“When the sage will cry, ‘Flood!’ It is the god Nibiru; this is the Hero, the four-headed planet. The god whose weapon is the Storm Storm will turn his back; to his resting place he will descend. ” 67
Is it scientifically acceptable that Nibiru was the cause of the great Flood that raised the earth’s waters over the Andes and Mount Ararat (where Noah finally moored)? Daily observation shows that the combined gravitational effects of the Sun and the Moon are enough to pull the Earth’s oceans to one side, so that a huge convexity (rising ocean level) occurs across the globe, resulting in great tidal waves. . Although these tidal waves reach only thirty feet in height, they prove an important principle – the effect of the convexity of ocean waters, which can be greatly magnified by the near passage of another planet. The biblical description of the Flood states that “the sea valleys were uncovered and the foundations of the earth lay empty,” 68suggesting that this is exactly what happened.
The orbit of Nibiru, as Zacharia Satchin writes, reaches its closest point to Earth, traveling 166 million miles off the Belt asteroid. With this closeness, it should certainly be visible from Earth (as confirmed by a text describing the visit of Anu and Antu to Earth), but is it close enough to cause the Flood? In my opinion, the answer is no. But before we reject Sitchin’s theory, let’s look at another possibility.
It is an established scientific fact that the orbits of planetary bodies are influenced by the proximity of neighboring planets. Therefore, when Nibiru makes his usual visit to the interior of the solar system, he could interact with the other planets and change his trajectory slightly each time. Could it be that Nibiru was pressed closer to Earth instead of reaching its perihelion near the Belt asteroid?
A Mesopotamian text translated by Alfred Jeremiah really describes the ordering of the planets that once brought Nibiru too close to Venus and Earth. The text, symbolically attributing deities to different planets, states that the seven outer planets (Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Nibiru) “stormed the Heavenly Barrier” that separated them from the four inner “planets” (Sun, M, Sun, , Venus and the Moon). 69As a result, Ishtar / Venus attempted to become the “Queen of Heaven,” a “glamorous place to live with Anu / Nibiru.” And the Moon (Son) was also forcibly captured. The text concludes that Nibiru rescued the darkened moon and helped her “shine forth in the sky” once more as Ishtar / Venus failed in her attempt at glory. A deeper reading suggests that this text, like Enuma Elish, describes a celestial phenomenon rather than a battle of the gods.
There is further confirmation in the statement of the Babylonian priest-historian Berosius in the third century BC:
“I, Berossiy, a translator from Bellus, confirm that all the inherited qualities of the Earth will be entrusted to the flames when the five planets come together in Cancer, so arranged that a straight line will be able to pass through their spheres. When the same arrangement occurs in Capricorn, then all of us are in danger of the Flood. ”
David Faisold has been aided by Chinese tradition in his extensive research. The pictograph, translated by K. Kang and E. Nelson, says mysteriously: “Eight + United + 3family = Sum … + water = Flood.” 71 Faisold interprets this as eight survivors, but it reminds me of eight planets, including Nibiru and Venus. The term “United” alludes to the ordering of planets in a line, as Berossi argued, and as mentioned in the Mesopotamian description of “storming the Heavenly Barrier.”
Some scientists have suggested that the imminent passage of Venus could be the cause of the Flood, and the funny thing about this is that the orbit of Venus has been thoroughly studied by both the Maya and Sumerian astronomers. The idea of ”profligating” Venus is probably driven by the many anomalies of this planet – in particular, its recently shaped surface, its unexplained internal temperature, and its unusual retrograde rotation (clockwise). 72 However, this idea suffers from a significant omission – what could make it change its orbit so suddenly?
Because of this, we have many clues that suggest that Nibiru sometimes performs extremely close passage on Earth and Venus, respectively. Could this idea offer a scientific basis for explaining the Flood? Compared to Zacharia Satchin’s theory, Nibiru is, in this scenario, much, much closer than 166 million miles to the Belte asteroid. At that time, Venus was only 25 million miles from Earth. If, for the sake of argument, Nibiru had walked the same distance between the two planets, then it had approached Earth 12.5 million miles – close enough to a planet three times the size of Earth to produce dramatic impact.
How was the Flood actually released? Most scientific papers have accepted that the Flood was a tidal wave and therefore sought the cause in the Earth itself. According to one theory, the Antarctic ice sheet periodically loosened and slid into the sea. 73 Another theory notes the biblical explanation: “All the deepest springs erupted upwards” 74 , thus causing the emergence of new ocean water through the reefs of the ocean floor.
However, if we search for an external, heavenly cause of the Flood, a much more plausible theory arises. Some scientists believe that the close proximity to two planets causes a “space-loaded shell” that contains enormous electromagnetic forces. The passage of Nibiru, three times the size of the Earth, could thus cause significant tectonic displacement of the strata, given the evidence of volcanic activity accompanying the Flood. Its side effects may also include melting or sliding of the ice sheet and ocean eruption. As for the Flood itself, the earth’s waters were probably pulled to one side by gravitational pull, causing a tremendous rise in their level to Nibiru as it passed the Earth during the encounter. Finally,
One would expect that the encounter with Nibiru influenced the rotation of the Earth, the inclination of its axis and spin (rotation around its own axis). An ancient text, the Epic for Herra, directly mentions such changes in the Earth’s orbit during the Flood: the god Marduk explains that in connection with the Flood:
“The Heaven-Earth Mutual Reverse turned and their established order, and the stops of the gods of heaven, the stars of the heavens changed and no longer returned to their former locations.” 75
The magnetic field was probably also affected. In 1972, a team of Swedish scientists, exploring samples of a geological crust, concluded that the earth’s magnetic field had been reversed 12,400 years ago. 76 In fact, it is believed that many such reversals of the poles of the magnetic field have occurred over the long history of the Earth. However, no scientific explanation was ever offered for this phenomenon.
A close encounter with Nibiru must have had a very dramatic impact on the planet Venus as well. Venus is unique to the solar system because of its reverse direction – clockwise rotation. And the speed of this rotation is unusual – it takes 243 days to rotate it once around its own axis. Most planets have one day left, with even fewer exceptions: Pluto (6.4) and Mercury (58.6). The combination of these two strangenesses suggests, in the words of astronomer Tom van Flandern, that: “someone other than the Sun has deprived Venus of most of its spin *. 78My guess is that it did Nibiru’s magnetic field, which, for a very long time, first stopped the whole rotation of Venus, and then slowly made it rotate in the opposite direction. Of course, Enuma Elish confirms that Nibiru / Marduk had a clockwise counterclockwise direction to other planets. Such a meeting could also explain the extraordinary level of internal heat of Venus – complete

A puzzle for astronomers
Is Venus’ unbridled disposition a heritage of origin, or is it a relatively recent phenomenon? One scientist, Dr. Stuart Grey-Nowood, has proven that Venus cloud cover has grown dramatically over the last few millennia. 79 Using ancient astronomical records of the Maya and Babylonians, Greenwood showed that Venus’ invisibility period in its “furthest position” (when it could not be seen behind the sun) had substantially shortened from 90 days to the present 50 days. Greenwood concludes that it is likely that Venus lately has an atmosphere that contains significantly less cloud cover. This strongly suggests that she is now “recovering” from a recent meeting with Nibiru.
It must be very significant that the Aztecs retained the ancient legend in which Venus was called the “smoking star.” 80 This ancient legend could very well be based on eyewitness accounts of the Flood. If so, Venus may have lost its atmosphere when meeting with Nibiru and restored it over the last 13,000 years. The Aztec legend has a curious resemblance to a Greek legend, according to which a “fiery star” almost destroyed the world, flooded it and subsequently became Venus! There is probably some historical basis for the apparently irrational fear of the Mayans that Venus could cause death at some point in its orbit.
This is how science and legend go together to provide further confirmation that the Flood was a historical event caused by an external source that influenced Venus as well. The Nibiru planet is the missing link that can offer the long-awaited scientific proof of the Flood legend. 81
Planet of Intersection
Has the planet Nibiru been seen since the Flood? The answer is likely to be positive, as descriptions of the planet are constantly found in the annals of the Sumerian civilization that originated six thousand years ago.
The Sumerians called the planet of the gods NIBIRU – Planet of the Crossing 82 , and to get into the essence of this name, we must return to the ancient Babylonian epic poem of creation. According to Enuma Elish, Nibiru was destined to return forever to the place of the celestial battle where he crossed Tiamat’s path – which is why he was called the Crossing Planet. In fact, during the earliest pictographic writing system, Nibiru was represented by the sign of the cross. The religious nature of the cross, sacred to both Buddhism and Christianity, thus owes its origin to the celestial event that created Earth and Heaven.
The Sumerian text probably states that the chief god, Anu, actually lived on Nibiru, from which he made periodic visits to Earth, accompanied by his wife, Anto. The Sumerian chronicles describe in great detail the great pomp and ceremony that accompanies such a visit. Zacharia Satchin suggested that it happened in the fourth millennium BC, when the gods decided to surrender civilization and power to humanity. On the seventeenth day of their visit, a reception was honored in honor of Anu and Anto in the city of Uruk, just before they left. The gathered gods washed their hands in golden washbasins, and the feast was served in seven gold trays. Then a priest ascended to the top of the Zikura Temple to watch Nibiru’s arrival.
Various poems have been cited, such as “Anu’s Planet Rises in Heaven” and “Creator’s Image Ascended.” When the planet Nibiru came into being, celebration lights were lit everywhere on Earth. More hymns were performed to commemorate the “Creator Planet, the Planet that is the Hero of Heaven”, and finally the gods led Anu and Anto through a magnificent procession to their “golden altars for the night.” In the morning the gods accompanied Anu and Antu to the “holy quay”, “the place of Anu’s ship”, where the solemn ceremony for their departure took place.
The ancient belief in Nibiru is preserved not only in the annals, but also in numerous images on a circular disk with two huge wings (Fig. 22). This symbol of the “winged disk” was worshiped by Sumerians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Egyptians and other later empires for millennia. His presence adorned the temples and palaces of gods and kings, and he was often symbolically portrayed on the scene of an ancient battle. The nature of the wings completely confused some scientists who tried to challenge their assumptions of a solar religion in these ancient civilizations. Still, it makes sense in the context of a planet whose ruler was the highest authority of human power on Earth.
If one believes that the Sumerian and Babylonian texts are cunning, and all coincidences with the solar system are pure coincidence, then one has to turn to another piece of evidence deciphered by Zacharia Satchin. This is an Acadic cylindrical seal from the third millennium BC, now an exhibit at the State Museum in Berlin (catalog number \ / A 243).
The Akkadian seal depicts eleven spheres encircling a larger six-ray globe that clearly represents the sun. If we start from the clockwise position at three o’clock and move in the opposite direction to it, we find a striking resemblance to the solar system both in size and in the position of the planets. With the exception of Pluto, which is shown in its original position as a satellite of Saturn, 83 the ancient image shows the planets as they existed as a result of the collision of Nibiru and Tiamat. There is a huge globe between Mars and Jupiter, about three times the size of Earth, which is no match for any of our known planets. It may not be a coincidence that Enuma Elisha accurately identifies the position of this planet or “god”:
“Nibiru God: It is he who, without breaking up, continues to cross through the middle of Tiamat. “Let” Crossing “be his name -onzi, which occupies the middle.” 84
The position between Mars and Jupiter is indeed “in the middle” – there are five outer and five inner planets (the moon is considered to be an inner planet since it has evolved as a separate celestial body).
What did the ancient text say about Nibiru’s orbit? Enuma Elish, describing Nibiru by the name of the god Marduk, described two “homes” that are probably equivalent to perihelion and aphelion in planetary orbit. These homes are described using Sumerian terms – AN.UR – Heavenly Basis – for perihelion – closest to the Sun point, and E. NUN – “Great / Lord’s House” – for aphelion. Zacharia Satchin clearly identifies the sky, and hence the perihelion, as the Belt asteroid. The Great Lord’s House, on the other hand, was sometimes referred to as the “Farthest” – a term also used to refer to Pluto’s location and to indicate the farthest position. 85Of course, the Mesopotamian texts describe Marduk / Nibiru as an “observer” of planets, with an orbit that is “higher” and “larger” than other planets, such that he “scans hidden knowledge … he sees all corners of the planet.” the universe. ”
These descriptions show a most unusual planetary orbit approaching the Sun at one extreme and the other outside the Pluto orbit, which is highly elliptical. The only precedent for such an extremely elliptical orbit are comets that pass through the heart of the solar system but can then disappear for millennia before being seen again. Enuma Elish gives the elliptical and irregular orbit of the comets a break through Tiamat. Is it possible for such a large planet to have such a strange orbit? The probable answer is yes, but only in exceptional circumstances, and we are obliged to point out that whatever explanation was given for Nibiru’s entry into the solar system 4 billion years ago, in itself, this is an extremely unusual phenomenon.
How long is Nibiru’s orbit and why has this planet not yet been seen today? Zachariah Satchin’s answer is found in the Sumerian word SAR – “Supreme Ruler” – an association with the highest deity Anu, but the term also refers to the number “3600”, depicted as a huge circle. 86 Moreover, in some context, the term assumes the meaning of a ‘complete cycle’. On this basis, as well as other confirmatory circumstances, Sitchin concluded that Nibiru’s orbit is approximately 3,600 Earth years. This probably explains why the planet has not been seen lately.
Planet X Search
Can modern science confirm the existence of Nibiru, a planet somewhere in size between those of Uranus and Jupiter, with a 3,600-year elliptical orbit and perihelion, which is normally close to the Belt asteroid?
The discovery of new planets over the last two hundred years has been largely due to the science of mathematics, not to the design of more and more auxiliary telescopes. For example, the existence of Neptune was originally theoretically discovered through asymmetries in the orbit of Uranus. Similarly, Pluto was found as a result of observations of an unknown gravitational force affecting the orbit of Neptune.
Following the same principle, astronomers were convinced that unexplained irregularities in the orbits of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto (and, to a lesser extent, Jupiter and Saturn), imply the existence of a distant, undiscovered planet. Some astronomers are so confident in the existence of this planet that they have already called it “Planet X” – the tenth planet. 87 Despite the recent attempts to disprove the evidence, Planet X theory is alive and well.
In 1978, the theory of Planet X took a huge leap into development after decades of stagnation. The discovery of Pluto’s satellite – Sharon, made it possible to perform accurate calculations of Pluto’s mass, and it turned out to be far less than expected. This made it possible to confirm mathematically the much higher accuracy of the distortions in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune. Two astronomers at the US Naval Observatory in Washington, Colombia, have consistently resurrected the idea of Planet X. Nevertheless, these astronomers, Robert Harrington and Tom van Flandern, went much further using mathematical models. They showed that Planet X had pushed Pluto and Sharon out of their previous positions as satellites of Neptune. 88Scientists have suggested that the offending planet was 34 times larger than Earth, and it was likely that it was itself captivated to orbit the Sun “in an extremely eccentric and inclined solar orbit with a prolonged period of full rotation.” 89 Reminds me so much of Enuma Elish as if they had used it for their scientific work!
In 1982, NASA itself formally recognized the likelihood of the existence of Planet X with its statement that “some sort of mysterious object is really there – much farther from the farthest planets.” 90
One year later, the newly launched IRAs * discovered a huge mysterious object in the farthest corners of space. The Washington Post summarized the interview with the IRAs Chief Scientist from California as follows:
“A celestial body, probably about the size of the giant planet Jupiter and perhaps close enough to Earth to be part of the solar system, was discovered in the direction of the constellation Orion by a space telescope …” All I can tell you is that we do not know what it is “-kaza Gerry Neugebauer, chief scientist Ira.” 91
The ensuing years brought some new information about the search for Planet X. However, some scientists are obviously convinced that it exists because they have continued to perform mathematical modeling of its characteristics. Their conclusions confirmed the theory that Planet X was three to four times the size of Earth and assumed to have an orbit tilted to an ecliptic with a maximum of 30 degrees; and also that its location is three times farther from the sun compared to Pluto. 92
In 1987, NASA made a statement recognizing the probable existence of Planet X. The US Newsweek Magazine wrote that:
“NASA held a press conference at its Ames Research Center in California last week to make a particularly strange announcement: an eccentric tenth planet may or may not be moving in orbit around the sun. John Anderson, a NASA research scientist who was the keynote speaker, has a suspicion that Planet X is there, though far from the other nine. If he is right, two of the most intriguing mysteries of
* Soc. English name – “Infrared Astronomical Satellite”. (Bell. Translator’s note k . O ) smicheskata science might be solved: what caused mysterious irregularities in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune in the nineteenth century? And what killed dinosaurs 26 million years ago (true)? 93
As the late eighties approached, two things happened. First, scientific journals began to witness a campaign to debunk Planet X, and second, NASA began investing more in powerful space-based telescopes. 94
the detachment campaign was led by some scholars such as K. Croswell, 95 M. Litman, 96 E. Standish Junior, 97, and D. Hughes 98 . Their arguments ranged from the illogical to the strange. Croswell argued that the planet could not exist because of the absence of anomalous impacts on the Pioneer and Voyager spacecraft, ignoring the perfectly acceptable possibility of Planet X being below the ecliptic and as close as possible to its farthest point – your aphelion. Litman tried to disregard all astronomical observations until 1910 in order to eliminate the anomalies, despite the lack of any basis that these earlier records were 99wrong. Standish made minor adjustments to the data, thus reducing the distortions proving the tenth planet – but in his own admission, the anomalies were only reduced but not completely eliminated. Finally, Hughes tried to disprove the evidence for Planet X through the complex argument that when the solar system was born, there could not be enough material for an additional planet. Clearly, he did not bother to read Enuma Elish, which describes the planet Marduk / Planet X as a descendant of the solar system!
All criticism focused solely on the mathematical anomalies and ignored the other evidence that supported the existence of Planet X. In 1993, in his contemporary work, Tom van Flandern emphasized that Planet X was still the only explanation for the strange origin of the Neptune satellite system and the unusual characteristics of Pluto and Sharon. 100 He also offered a very important new proof of the deviations in the orbits of several comets. Van Flandres pointed out that interference as a planetary-contractors, and the orbits of comets strongly suggest the presence of a single body, probably twice as 101 away from the Sun than Pluto.
Van Flandern continues to be a defender of the search for Planet X. This search is now taking place in the southern sky, but it is proving incredibly difficult to find such a distant object that moves very slowly compared to the stars. 102 It is remarkable that in terms of size, orbital properties, and distance of location, the specific characteristics of Planet X are identical to those of Nibiru, as described by the Babylonians and Sumerians.
While astronomers were hunting for Planet X, the US government began pumping unprecedented funds into Hubble’s terribly expensive telescope. The space-based telescope was finally launched on April 20, 1990, only to be defective. In November 1993, his vision was corrected by a giant “contact lens” mounted in space for a modest $ 700 million. In the meantime, the European Space Agency was building its Infrared Space Observatory, which was successfully launched in November 1995. Contrary to Hubble, which is an optical telescope, the ICO has been designed to seek infrared radiation. This way he can peek into the darkest corners of space, with his supposed ability to capture the heat of a snowman 60 miles away!
If that seems perfect, what about NASA’s latest plans? In December 1995, Naycher Magazine informed NASA of a plan to launch a telescope into the outermost space, probably somewhere around Jupiter. NASA tried to validate the location so far, citing the need to reduce the degradation of the resulting image due to distortion in the atmosphere. Officially, this project is intended to detect huge planets in adjacent star systems. However, transporting a telescope from Earth to Jupiter will make a very minimal difference about the 42 light-years of cosmic distance (about one six thousandth of a percent – 0.006% difference, to be exact) that we all have to shake our heads and let’s think about why NASA wants to spend $ 1,000 million, and maybe more, this way.
House of Gods *
So far, we have found extremely strong evidence of Nibiru’s existence. We identified its influence in the formation of the solar system, in the subsequent evolution of the Earth, and during the Flood 13,000 years ago. We tracked it down to the nearer Sumerian era and examined its present-day search into the farthest space. Yet, despite Nibiru’s strong associations with the chief god Anu in the Sumerian texts, 103 can we say with certainty that she was or was the home of the gods?
The important proof is probably found in the number “12”, which has been sacred to the human race since the world began to shine. Appears in Judaism in the twelve tribes of Israel, in Christianity in the twelve apostles, and in Hinduism as the happiest number.
In the complete absence of any other explanation for the sacred number of twelve, it was supposed that its roots were found in the kingdom of the gods, and more precisely in astronomy. 104As we discussed earlier, the planet Nibiru brings the total sum of celestial bodies in the solar system to twelve (Sun and Moon count), and according to the Sumerians, the Council of Gods, which made important decisions, also consisted of twelve “senior” “Gods. The symbolic significance of this number remains to this day in the division of the sky into twelve constellations, a division that splits the Earth’s precession cycle over twelve periods of 2160 years. It seems likely that the obsession of the gods of the twelve, and more generally of astronomy, and Nibiru in particular, is of almost religious significance and it is probable that the gods were not aliens to the solar system but to its inhabitants .
Acceptable confirmation that Nibiru was the source of the gods who came to Earth is at the heart of the number “7”. It, like the number “12”, was important to the gods and has remained sacred to humanity from eternity. The number is especially evident in the biblical seven days of creation, while in the New Testament we have the Revelation of St. John the Theologian with his seven seals, seven golden lamps, seven angels with seven tribulations, and seven cups with the wrath of the Lord. The number seven appears in other religions as well as in the Apocrypha. The Quran and the Book of Enoch – both describe a journey through seven heavens by Mohammed and Enoch, respectively, and to this day Muslim worshipers have traveled seven times around the Ka’aba to Mecca. Our contemporary cultures have also adopted such expressions,
The divine inheritance of the “7” is also revealed in the otherwise uncertain origin of the seven days of the week. Most of us take this fact as a predetermined thing and consider it a natural cycle. In reality, this is not a fixed cycle, though, and scientists have been fighting for years to explain why this tradition originated. Some theologians would swear that the answer lies in the biblical seven days of creation, but the original source of biblical “days” is almost certainly the seven clay tablets on which Enuma Elisha is written. This is evident from the contrast between the first six Babylonian tiles describing Marduk’s actions for creation and the seventh – which is dedicated to universal praise of God (and thus coincides with the biblical seventh day the Lord rested).
The seven-day week divides the year into fifty-two weeks, thus opening the door to another mystical number from the traditions of both Egypt and Maya. According to an ancient papyrus discovered in a tomb in Thebes, Thoth, the Egyptian god of miracles, is accustomed to causing mortals in a mysterious “52” game that they usually lose! 105 The number also appears in the enigmatic Mayan holy tour – of 52 cycles (18,980 days), when their 260-day holy year exactly coincided with their 365-day solar year.
But what is the initial source of the sacred number “7”? Why did the Babylonians describe their creation on seven tiles? While the seven stars of the Pleiades constellation may be remarkable after all, Zacharia Satchin pointed out a very interesting alternative theory based on the literal acceptance of ancient texts. Having already identified the association of the twelve gods with the twelve planets, he became intrigued by the continued mention of the god Enlil, known as the Supreme God of the Earth, as well as the venerable Lord of the 7. This prompted Sitchin for the idea that Earth was probably the seventh planet, and he quickly realized that indeed the Earth was the seventh planet encountered by the gods when they arrived from Nibiru in the interior of the solar system. 106
Among the evidence cited by Zacharia Satchin is a partially broken clay planisphere that was found among the ruins of an ancient library in Nineveh. This serrated disc was thought to be a copy of an ancient Sumerian original containing a confusing and unique series of wedge-shaped signs and arrows (Figure 41). 107Disc studies have come to the conclusion that this is technical or astronomical information. One segment depicts two triangular shapes connected by a line along which there are seven points. One of the triangles then contains four more points. Recognizing the seven / four split as an ancient division between the outer and inner planets of the solar system, Soutine examined the disk a little closer. Along the sides of each segment of the disc were repeated characters that were meaningless in Akkadian but came back to life when read as syllabic syllables. Sitchin found explanations for Enlil, geographical concepts such as “sky” and “mountain”, and actions such as “observation” and “descent”. One of the explanations was for “deity NI, head of descent”. There were also numbers, that could represent a mathematically perfect, smooth approach to landing a space shuttle. There was also no doubt in Sitchin that the disc was “a roadmap marking the path of God Enlil’s passage through the planets, accompanied by some directions.”108 In all likelihood, the disc confirms that Nibiru was the home of the gods, and that the Earth was the seventh planet, if counted from the outside inwards.
Such a voyage of the gods to Earth was also immortalized through the ancient Babylonian procession, the “procession of Marduk”, the main event of the twelve-day New Year’s festival. Enormous excavations in Babylon related to ritual texts allowed scientists to restore the sacred courtyard around the temple of God Marduk and brought back the ancient ritual. The procession included seven different “stops” in which God Marduk was praised by different names. Realizing that the Babylonians called the planet Nibiru of Marduk in honor of their national god, Zacharia Satchin was able to decipher the names of the stops and the names of Marduk (which the text provides both Akkadian and Sumerian). At this point it is worth quoting Satchin in full:
“Our contention is that the seven stops of the Marduk procession represent the cosmic journey of the Nephilim from their planet to Earth; that the first stop, the House of Light, represents the passage past Pluto; the second (“Where the field divides”) was Neptune; the third (unclear) – Uranium; the fourth – the place of the storms of heaven – Saturn. The fifth – where the “Way” became pure, “where the oath of the shepherd appeared,” was Jupiter. The sixth – where the voyage was transferred to the Passenger Ship, was Mars. And the seventh stop was Earth – the end of the trip, where they provided Marduk with ‘Holiday Homes’.’ 03
Do all of the above events indicate that Nibiru was indeed the home of the gods, or did they worship this planet because of its central role in shaping the solar system as we know it? Zacharia Satchin confirmed that Anu did indeed govern Nibiru’s society, but let’s consider whether this is an acceptable scenario. For example, was the climate of Nibiru favorable? Its orbit takes it so far from the sun that sunshine should be only one-sixtieth of that on Earth; and yet it is scientifically possible for planets to generate huge amounts of heat internally. As mentioned earlier, Nibiru is indeed described as possessing an abundance of heat (as well as water). Based on the few clues we have, Nibiru’s climate could be compared to hot jacuzzi under the starry sky – probably not as threatening as anyone can imagine, but still harsher than the luxurious Earth. Then why would Anu, the Lord of the Gods, wish to live there?
Could Zacharia Satchin have misinterpreted the ancient text? Two alternatives come to my mind. First, it is not at all certain that the gods represent royal lineage and therefore may have acted on command; in these circumstances, the presence of one or more gods of the hostile Nibiru could be explained. Second, it is possible that the explanations for the broadcasting of Anu’s decisions to Nibiru relate to a transmitter placed on Nibiru to spread messages from Anu, which could be anywhere else during this time.
My point of view is this: Did the gods come to Earth not from Nibiru but through Nibiru? Was Nibiru used as a conventional spacecraft traveling the solar system without any fuel and at about 10,000 miles per hour? The possibility is further enhanced by the explanation in the Babylonian recreation of the journey. At the sixth stop – Mars, where the excursion is transferred to the Passenger Ship. This is exactly what one would expect if Nibiru itself was the spacecraft as it reached its perihelion between Jupiter and Mars. Why else would it be a transfer from one ship to another?
If we take the argument one step further, it is quite unacceptable that these gods evolved to Nibiru for two reasons. First, the natural conditions of Nibiru were probably quite different from those of Earth, but still, by all accounts, the gods were perfectly adaptable to Earth. Secondly, the regular cataclysms experienced while Nibiru passed the Belt asteroid may have made it difficult for any living creature to evolve for more than tens of thousands of years. 110 On Earth, in contrast, cataclysms occurred only at intervals of millions of years, and thus acted for the most part as a positive evolutionary force.
Where did the gods, or should we say “reason”, evolve then? I think a much more acceptable source of Nibiru would b L la a planet such as Earth in a nearby star system in the direction of the orbit of Nibiru (southern sky). Based on the proof of our own genetic make-up, as set out in Chapter 2, we must look for a natural environment where a long-lasting and peaceful evolution could take place.
On the other hand, we should not underestimate the likelihood of the development of intelligent beings on Earth or Mars who left the solar system and then returned again.
It is now common knowledge that the climate of Mars was once different, with plenty of water that could sustain life. In addition, NASA’s photos of what appear to be unnatural marks on the surface of Mars have given rise to speculations that an advanced civilization was once based there. 111 The most curious clue came from an American team. Vincent Di Pietro and Gregory Molenard, whose enlarged photos from the monumental Face in Sidonia have made us believe this is a work of human hands. 112 Its inhabitants are likely to have emigrated hundreds of millions of years ago, largely due to changes in climatic conditions.
And the opposite is true: reason could initially develop on Earth. Going back and rethinking the science of the solar system, we find that the Earth could also be located in a particularly unique corner of the universe. The periodic cataclysmic rotations of Nibiru in the center of the solar system may have had a very significant effect on the Earth’s rotational speed. Successive recoveries from partial destruction would, according to the laws of Darwinism, lead to the accelerated development of those organisms that survived. If there was ever room for the development of reason, the solar system had to be ranked among the top contenders.
In 1993, Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson published 900 pages of critical material in conventional archeology and anthropology entitled “Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race.” 113An eight-year investigation into Cremo and Thompson has revealed evidence that humanoids have been present on Earth for hundreds of millions of years. Their well-supported, fact-based work includes a huge mass of material for anomalies such as works of human labor and human remains discovered in rock formations, hundreds of millions of years old. The regular cataclysms described in this chapter shed some light on the way these found remains were embedded in solid rock. The work of Cremo and Thompson deserves serious attention. It can shed light not directly on the origin of the human race, but on the origins of our creators.
