Sitchin was born in Russia, was raised in Palestine, graduated
from the University of London with a degree in economic history. He
worked for years as a journalist and editor in Israel before
settling in New York.
Sitchin, like Velikovsky and Däniken, presents a compelling and entertaining story
based on belief about ancient
visitors from other worlds. Zecharia Sitchin's key ideas are based
on the assumption that
ancient myths are not myths but historical and scientific texts.
According to Sitchin,
ancient Sumerian clay tablets reveal that gods from another
planet (Nibiru, which orbits our Sun every 3,600 years) arrived on
Earth some 450,000 years ago and created humans by genetic
engineering of female apes.

Cosmic Code: The Sixth Book of The Earth Chronicles
by Zecharia Sitchin
Events Before the Deluge
450,000 years ago,
On Nibiru, a distant member of our solar system, life faces slow
extinction as the planet's atmosphere erodes. Deposed by Anu, the
ruler Alalu escapes in a spaceship and finds refuge on Earth. He
discovers that Earth has gold that can be used to protect Nibiru's

Eridu -Earth Station I - for extracting gold from the waters of the
Earth's climate mellows. More Anunnaki arrive on Earth, among them
Enki's half-sister Ninhursag, Chief Medical Officer.
As gold production falters, Anu arrives on Earth with Enlil, the
heir apparent. It is decided to obtain the vital gold by mining it
in southern Africa. Drawing lots, Enlil wins command of Earth
Mission; Enki is relegated to Africa. On departing Earth, Anu is
challenged by Alalu's grandson.
Seven functional settlements in southern Mesopotamia include a
Spaceport (Sippar), Mission Control Center (Nippur), a metallurgical
center (Shuruppak). The ores arrive by ships from Africa; the
refined metal is sent aloft to orbiters manned by Igigi, then
transferred to spaceships arriving periodically from Nibiru.
Gaining the support of the Igigi, Alalu's grandson attempts to seize
mastery over Earth. The Enlilites win the War of the Olden Gods.
The Anunnaki toiling in the gold mines mutiny. Enki and Ninhursag
create Primitive Workers through genetic manipulation of Ape woman;
they take over the manual chores of the Anunnaki. Enlil raids the
mines, brings the Primitive Workers to the Edin in Mesopotamia.
Given the ability to procreate, Homo Sapiens begins to multiply.
Life on Earth regresses during a new glacial period.
Climate warms again. The Anunnaki (the biblical Nefilim), to Enlil's
growing annoyance marry the daughters of Man.
The "accursation of Earth" - a new Ice Age-begins.
Regressive types of Man roam the Earth . Cro-Magnon man survives.
Enki and Ninhursag elevate humans of Anunnaki parentage to rule in
Shuruppak. Enlil, enraged. plots Mankind's demise.
Realizing that the passage of Nibiru in Earth's proximity will
trigger an immense tidal wave, Enlil makes the Anunnaki swear to
keep the impending calamity a secret from Mankind.
Events After the Deluge
Enki breaks the oath, instructs Ziusudra/Noah to build a submersible
ship. The Deluge sweeps over the Earth; the Anunnaki witness the
total destruction from their orbiting spacecraft.
Enlil agrees to grant the remnants of Mankind implements and
seeds; agriculture begins in the highlands. Enki domesticates
The descendants of Noah are allotted three regions. Ninurta, Enlil's
foremost son, dams the mountains and drains the rivers to make
Mesopotamia habitable; Enki reclaims the Nile valley. The Sinai
peninsula is retained by the Anunnaki for a post-Diluvial spaceport;
a control center is established on Mount Moriah (the future
Ra/Marduk, Enki's firstborn son, divides dominion over Egypt between
Osiris and Seth.
Seth seizes and dismembers Osiris, assumes sole rule over the Nile
Horus avenges his father Osiris by launching the First Pyramid War.
Seth escapes to Asia, seizes the Sinai peninsula and Canaan.
Opposed to the resulting control of all the space facilities by
Enki's descendants, the Enlilites launch the Second Pyramid War. The
victorious Ninurta empties the Great Pyramid of its equipment.
Ninhursag, half-sister of Enki and Enlil, convenes peace
conference. The division of Earth is reaffirmed. Rule over Egypt
transferred from the Ra/Marduk dynasty to that of Thoth. Heliopolis
built as a substitute Beacon City.
The Anunnaki establish outposts at the gateway to the space
facilities; Jericho is one of them.
As the era of peace continues, the Anunnaki grant Mankind new
advances; the Neolithic period begins. Demi-gods rule over Egypt.
Urban civilization begins in Sumer as the Anunnaki reestablish there

Sumerian Culture and the Annunaki

Working from the same archaeological discoveries, artifacts, and recovered
records as archaeologists and linguists have for two hundred years, Sitchin
propounds – proves, in the opinion of this author -- that the Anunnaki
(Sumerian: “those who came down from the heavens”; Old testament Hebrew, Anakeim,
Nefilim, Elohim; Egyptian: Neter), an advanced civilization from the tenth
planet in our solar system, splashed down in the Persian gulf area around
432,000 years ago, colonized the planet, with the purpose of obtaining large
quantities of gold. Some 250,000 years ago, the recovered documents tell us,
their lower echelon miners rebelled against the conditions in the mines and the
Anunnaki directorate decided to create a creature to take their place. Enki,
their chief scientist and Ninhursag their chief medical officer, after getting
no satisfactory results splicing animal and Homo Erectus genes, merged their
Anunnaki genes with that of Homo Erectus and produced us, Homo Sapiens, a
genetically bicameral species, for their purposes as slaves. Because we were a
hybrid, we could not procreate. The demand for us as workers became greater and
we were genetically manipulated to reproduce.
Eventually, we became so numerous that some of us were expelled from the
Anunnaki city centers, gradually spreading over the planet. Having become a
stable genetic stock and developing more precociously than, perhaps, the
Anunnaki had anticipated, the Anunnaki began to be attracted to humans as sexual
partners and children were born of these unions. This was unacceptable to the
majority of the Anunnaki high council and it was decided to wipe out the human
population through a flood that was predictable when Nibiru, the tenth in our
solar system and the Anunnaki home planet, came through the inner solar system
again (around 12,500 years ago) on one of its periodic 3600 year returns. Some
humans were saved by the action of the Anunnaki official, Enki, who was
sympathetic to the humans he had originally genetically created. For thousands
of years, we were their slaves, their workers, their servants, and their
soldiers in their political battles among themselves. The Anunnaki used us in
the construction of their palaces (we retroproject the religious notion of
temple on these now), their cities, their mining and refining complexes and
their astronomical installations on all the continents. They expanded from
Mesopotamia to Egypt to India to South and Central America and the stamp of
their presence can be found in the farthest reaches of the planet.
Around 6000 years ago, they, probably realizing that they were going to
phase off the planet, began, gradually, to bring humans to independence. Sumer,
a human civilization, amazing in its “sudden”, mature, and highly advanced
character was set up under their tutelage in Mesopotamia. Human kings were
inaugurated as go-betweens, foremen of the human populations answering to the
Anunnaki. A strain of humans, genetically enhanced with more Anunnaki genes, a
bloodline of rulers in a tradition of “servants of the people” was initiated
(Gardner). These designated humans were taught technology, mathematics,
astronomy, advanced crafts and the ways of advanced civilized society (in
schools, called now “mystery schools” but there was no mystery about them).
Gardner has brought to light the fact that there exists a robust, highly
documented, genealogical, genetic history carrying all the way back to the
Anunnaki, possessed by the heterodox tradition of Christianity, which is only
now coming forward, no longer gun-shy of the Inquisition. This tradition,
preserving the bloodline, is the one branded “heretical” and murderously
persecuted by the Roman Church. There were no Dark Ages for this tradition, only
for those whom the Church wanted to keep in the dark about the real nature of
human history and destroy the bloodline, a direct threat to the power of the
What evidence supports the Sitchin thesis?
The Astronomical Evidence
“...no concrete problem is going to be solved as long as the experts of
astronomy are too supercilious to touch "mythical" ideas -- which are firmly
believed to be plain nonsense, of course -- as long as historians of religion
swear to it that stars and planets were smuggled into originally "healthy"
fertility cults and naive fairy tales only "very late" -- whence these unhealthy
subjects should be neglected by principle -- and as long as the philologists
imagine that familiarity with grammar replaces that scientific knowledge which
they lack, and dislike.”
Giorgio de Santillana, Ph.D.& Hertha von Dechend, Ph.D.
A key underpinning of the Sitchin paradigm is the existence, now or in the
past, of the tenth planet in our solar system, the home planet of the Anunnaki
with the size, orbit, and characteristics described, as Sitchin has
demonstrated, in the Enuma Elish and corroborated by Harrington, former chief of
the U.S. Naval Observatory, now deceased.
Tombaugh discovered Pluto in 1930. Christie, of the U.S. Naval Observatory,
discovered Charon, Pluto’s moon, in 1978. The characteristics of Pluto derivable
from the nature of Charon demonstrated that there must still be a large planet
undiscovered because Pluto could not be the cause of the residuals, the
“wobbles” in the orbital paths of Uranus and Neptune clearly identifiable. The
IRAS (Infrared Astronomical Satellite), during ’83 -’84, produced observations
of a tenth planet so robust that one of the astronomers on the project said that
“all that remains is to name it” -- from which point the information has become
curiously guarded. In 1992 Harrington and Van Flandern of the Naval Observatory,
working with all the information they had at hand, published their findings and
opinion that there is, indeed, a tenth planet, even calling it an “intruder”
planet. The search was narrowed to the southern skies, below the ecliptic.
Harrington invited Sitchin, having read his book and translations of the Enuma
Elish, to a meeting at his office and they correlated the current findings with
the ancient records.
The recovered Enuma Elish document, a history of the formation of our solar
system and more, says that, at the time when Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter,
Uranus and Saturn were in place, there was a Uranus sized planet, called Tiamat,
in orbit between Mars and Jupiter. Earth was not in place yet. A large wandering
planet, called Nibiru, was captured into the system gravitationally. As it
passed by the outer planets it caused the anomalies of their moons, the tilting
of Uranus on its side, the dislodging of Pluto from its being a moon of Saturn
to its own planetary orbit. Its path bent by the gravitational pull of the large
planets, first its satellites collided with the large planet Tiamat and, on a
second orbit through, Nibiru collided with Tiamat, driving the larger part of it
into what is now Earth’s orbit to recongeal as Earth, dragging its moon with it
to become our Moon with all its anomalies. The shattered debris of Tiamat’s
smaller part became the asteroid belt, comets, and meteorites. The gouge of our
Pacific basin is awesome testimony to the collisional event. Nibiru settled into
a 3600 year elliptical retrograde (opposite direction to all the other planets)
orbit around our sun, coming in through the asteroid belt region between Mars
and Jupiter at perigee and swinging far out past Pluto at apogee. Harrington
acknowledged that his information agreed with all these details and the maps
they each had drawn of the orbits were almost indistinguishable. The current
probable location of Nibiru (Planet X, our tenth) estimated by both was the
It is the opinion of this author and others that, in light of the evidence
already obtained through the use of the Pioneer 10 and 11 and two Voyager space
craft, the Infrared Imaging Satellite (IRAS, ‘83-84) and the clear and
unequivocal statements of Harrington when consulting with Sitchin, that the
search has already been accomplished, in fact that the planet has already been
We need to force the issue of the tenth planet being in our solar system, not
just to demonstrate the validity of the new paradigm but for a very practical
reason. The ancient records are very clear. The passage of the tenth planet,
Nibiru, once every 3600 years, through the inner solar system effects the Earth,
sometimes in catastrophic ways. It is very probably the cause of pole shifts,
pole reversals, changes in the precessional movement, perhaps even catastrophic
bombardment by asteroid size space debris that it may drag along with it. Since
it passes through the asteroid belt area between Mars and Jupiter and its
orbital path may vary depending on the position of the other planets when it
comes though, it may have been responsible for the devastation of Mars. A
rigorous, detailed computer modeling of the solar system, including the tenth
planet needs to be done urgently for our own planetary safety. Remember that the
Vatican maintains an astronomical observatory and Msgr. Balducci may have access
to information that prompts him to make the amazing statements he has ---- no
doubt as voice of the Vatican.
The Technological Evidence
Ooparts is the term used to describe the purportedly out of place in time
artifacts, toys, tools, technical devices, depictions and documents which have
come to light through archaeological excavation or discovery. Almost everyone is
familiar, through published works or documentaries, with the clay pot batteries
still containing the electrodes from the Iraqi desert dated at 2500 B.C., the
flyable model airplane from a pyramid tomb, the sophisticated machining of stone
requiring the most advanced techniques we know today, the 1000 ton precision cut
blocks of stone in a temple foundation that we could not even handle, an ancient
relief frieze from an Abydos temple depicting rockets, airplanes and even a
helicopter, etc. The most recent and quite amazing oopart is the rediscovery of
monoatomic gold by David Hudson (Monoatomics are superconductors at room
temperature, have anti-gravitic properties and are only now being investigated
by the advanced physics community) Hudson’s discovery, correlated with the
bringing to light, by Gardner, of the suppressed discovery of the Anunnaki gold
processing plant on Mt. Horeb by Sir Flinders Petrie in 1889 demonstrates that
the monoatomics were already known at least 3000 years ago. These ooparts
coupled with evidence from many disciplines and the historical records indicate
that an advanced civilization existed in those times possessing a high
technology and that that civilization was indeed the Anunnaki.
The Documentary Evidence
The recorded historical documentation for the existence and deeds of the
Anunnaki has become gradually available to us only since the early 1800’s. The
excavation of the ancient sites of Mesopotamia brought to light the amazingly
advanced civilization of Sumer and, with it, thousands of clay tablets
containing not only mundane records of commerce, marriages, military actions and
advanced astronomical calculation systems but of the history of the Anunnaki
themselves. It is clear from those records that the Sumerians knew these aliens
to be real flesh and blood. The library of the ruler, Ashurbanipal, at Nineveh
was discovered to have burnt down and the clay tablets held there were fired,
preserving them for our reading. One of the most impressive finds, in very
recent time, has been a sealed, nine foot by six foot room in Sippar holding,
neatly arranged on shelves, a set of some 400 elaborate clay tablets containing
an unbroken record of the history of those ancient times, a sort of time
capsule. The evidence is so overwhelming and robust that, if it weren’t for
those with power enough to suppress, it would have been accepted and our world
view changed a century ago or, perhaps, sooner.
The Genetic Evidence
The recovered records place the location of the Anunnaki laboratory where
the first humans were literally produced in east central Africa just above their
gold mines. This falls precisely on the map where the mitochondrial DNA “search
for Eve” places the first woman Homo Sapiens and in the same period. (The gold
mining engineers of Africa have found 100,000-year-old gold mines in that area.)
The evidence for, and description of advanced genetic engineering is all there
in the ancient documents. Our rapid progress from inception to going to Mars
soon, after only 250,000 years, does not correspond to the million year
periodicities of slow evolutionary development of other species such as Homo
Erectus before us. As so many thinkers have pointed out, we are radically and
anomalously different, as discussed in part three.
Scientific Objections to the Thesis
How could the Anunnaki, clearly described as comfortable in earth gravity
and atmosphere, very similar to current humans in all ways, have evolved on a
planet within our solar system whose orbital apogee takes it into the deep cold
of space for much of its orbit?
The ancient records repeatedly describe Nibiru as a “radiant” planet. This
may be understood as having a high core temperature. Although controversial,
there is also astrophysical opinion that a large body in elongated orbit is
constantly tending toward circular orbit and this causes stresses in the body
that could generate a good deal of heat. That their planet is gradually cooling,
may be indicated by Sitchin’s interpretation of their colonizing Earth (contains
most of the gold identifiable in the solar system) for the purpose of obtaining
large quantities of gold for molecular seeding of their atmosphere with a
reflective gold shielding. Pertinent here is Harrington’s confident statement to
Sitchin that it is “a nice, good planet, could be surrounded by gases, probably
has an atmosphere and could support life like ours”. The sunlight level there
might be quite different than on earth. The Anunnaki were often depicted or
sculpted with what seem to be obviously sunglasses.
If, however, the Anunnaki evolved on a radically different planet from earth
under quite different conditions to which to adapt, why should they have turned
out to be so identical to human species? Sitchin’s answer is based on the
collisional event between the intruder planet, Nibiru, and the planet Tiamat,
the residual part of which recongealed into the Earth after being driven into
current Earth orbit. That the two, or at least one, of the colliding planets was
sufficiently developed to have evolved basic organic compounds, perhaps even
simple life, the cross-seeding of everything from amino acids to more
complicated organic compounds or even primitive organisms, could account for the
evolutionary similarity. Although this author finds it a reasonable hypothesis,
even trivial, that advanced civilizations would be capable of crossing extremely
different genomes, perhaps with even radically different bases, the
cross-seeding theory can account for the apparent relative ease with which the
Anunnaki impinged their genes on the genes of Homo Erectus. The Anunnaki skill
level, 200,000 years ago, is indicated well by the recorded fact that, in early
trials, they succeeded in crossing animal genes with Homo Erectus genes,
obtained living hybrids but never a satisfactory product which led them to
modify Homo Erectus genes with their advanced genes.
If our genome is estimated as 98% to 99% similar to the chimpanzee, how could
there be a melding of the Homo Erectus and Anunnaki genomes, or impingement of
the advanced code on the lesser advanced one detectable? The author suggests
that this is a major question probably answerable only by the geneticists
open-minded enough to attack it. The resolution of that question should provide
rich additional clues in itself.

Will Nibiru Return in 2003?
Featuring an exclusive WWW.YOWUSA.COM
with Zecharia Sitchin
The recent release of Zecharia Sitchin’s latest book “The
Lost Book Of Enki”, caused a lot of public interest, as well
as some unexpected and unwarranted misinformation concerning our
destiny and the return of Nibiru. Consequently, some have
predicted that Nibiru will fly through our solar system next year
and with catastrophic results for our planet.
Is all of this hysteria or fact? We wanted to know so we
contacted Zecharia Sitchin with the able help of YOWUSA supporter,
Josef Novak. In this article, we’ll first we will
present our exclusive interview with Zecharia Sitchin in response to
a series of written questions submitted to him.
Interview with Zecharia Sitchin
NOTE: The following Q&A interview was conducted over a course
of weeks between YOWUSA and Zecharia Sitchin and has been reviewed
by him for completeness and accuracy.
--- Beginning of Interview ---
YOWUSA: Could you
please summarise your research and explain how you managed to
beautifully consolidate everything in your latest release “The
Lost Book Of Enki”?
SITCHIN: My journey into the Past began as a schoolboy,
fortunate to study the Bible (Old Testament) in its original Hebrew.
Reaching chapter 6 of Genesis, the teacher explained that in the
days before the Great Flood of Noah there were "giants"
upon the Earth. But I raised my hand and said: The term in the Bible
is Nefilim, which means Those Who Have Come Down/Descended
(from Heaven to Earth), not "giants."
Instead of being complimented on my linguistic knowledge, I was
reprimanded for "questioning the Bible." The result was an
obsession: Who were the Nefilim? What was the significance
that they married the Daughters of Adam? Why were they described as
the sons (plural) of the Elohim ("gods" in plural)?
The lifetime of research led me to the origin of all these tales
-- the Great Flood, the Tower of Babel and the Creation of the Adam
included -- in the writings, on clay tablets, of the Sumerians, back
in time almost six millennia.
In the eight books preceding The Lost Book of Enki
(starting with The 12th Planet in 1976).) I presented the
textual and pictorial evidence from all the ancient civilizations
showing that WE ARE NOT ALONE -- that there is one more planet in
our own solar system from which intelligent beings (Nefilim, Elohim,
Anunnaki in Sumerian) had come here some 450,000 years ago for their
own reasons, and who some 300,000 years ago engaged in genetic
engineering to bring about Homo-sapiens by mixing their genes with
those of the evolved hominids. Their home planet, which has an
elongated orbit around our sun lasting some 3,600 years, was called
NIBIRU: "Planet of the Crossing."
The leader of the first expedition to Earth, a great scientist
who led the genetic engineering achievement, was called EN.KI
In 2024 BC the ongoing conflict between clans of the Anunnaki (to
use their Sumerian name) resulted in the use of nuclear weapons to
obliterate their spaceport in the Sinai Peninsula. The unexpected
consequence was the demise of the great Sumerian civilization.
Enki opposed this use of the "weapons of terror." His
autobiography, reconstructed by me from almost 800 long, short,
undamaged or even fragmented texts, was intended to tell Mankind how
it all came about. Thus the culmination of my lifelong writings: The
Lost Book Of Enki.
YOWUSA: On your
web site you quote from an article titled “Comet’s Course Hints
at Mystery Planet” in the journal Science dated 6 April 2001:
“A Supercomet following an unexpectedly far-flung path around
the sun suggests that an unidentified planet once lurked in the
outermost reaches of the solar system, an international team of
astronomers reports. What’s more, the mysterious object may
still be there.”
From your research into the historical records of ancient
civilisations are all such findings relating to the Sumerian Nibiru?
SITCHIN: The above is just one recent example of a
recurring spate of revelations from the astronomical establishment
touching on the existence of one more planet in our solar system.
Some ten years ago the US Government itself, through its Naval
Observatory, led the search for "Planet X" and the team's
leader, Dr. Harrington, agreed with my ancient evidence. At that
time even The New York Times wrote that all that is left regarding
the existence of such a post-Plutonian planet is to name it... (I
wrote to the Planetary Society that the planet already has a name:
Nibiru). After a hiatus of a decade or so, the
"discoveries" of "something" "out
there" keep piling up again.
I have no doubt that at the right time -- right in the eyes of
whoever decided these matters -- the existence of Nibiru will be
YOWUSA: On your
web site you also quote from an article titled “Neptune
Attacks!” in the New Scientist magazine:
“There is new evidence that a sudden barrage of deadly debris
crashed against the Earth and the Moon 3.9 billion years ago… What
triggered this onslaught? Something in the structure of the
Solar System must have changed.”
SITCHIN: This is yet another confirmation by modern
science of the Sumerian knowledge. A long text known as Enuma
Elish describes how Nibiru arrived at an early Solar System and
collided with an olden planet, causing it’s crash to form the
Earth and the Moon.
YOWUSA: So, while
the majority in the scientific community may disagree with your
research, they are still making open discoveries that are confirming
your research. However, many religious leaders still seem to be
relatively tight-lipped about acknowledging your research. Are
you disappointed that religion does not seem to be evolving in the
way our science is?
SITCHIN: In Sumerian times Religion was Science and
Science was Religion. Who is more tight lipped now, to use your
words, one wonders. As the two come together, the validity of the
ancients' knowledge will also become evident.
There are many priests, ministers and rabbies among my fans.
I report an eye-opening dialogue with a Vatican theologian on my
YOWUSA: Since the
whole Hebrew Bible was compiled centuries after Genesis, the first
of the five books of the Bible, do you believe that the writer of
the Genesis account followed Sumerian beliefs more closely?
SITCHIN: Of Course. The first parts of Genesis, from the
tale of Creation through the tales of Adam and Eve, the Garden of
Eden, the Tower of Babel, the Great Flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, the
Wars of the Kings in which Abraham was involved -- are all based on
earlier Sumerian records.
beliefs of the Native American Indians reflect Sumerian beliefs as
you have stated them. Since major religions have departed from
the original Sumerian beliefs, why do you say the Native American
beliefs have remained so intact?
SITCHIN: A good question; let me try to answer it: The
Anunnaki first established their activities in the Americas after
the Great Flood, because the Deluge exposed there vast sources of
gold -- the metal for which they had come to Earth (needing it to
create a shield to save the atmosphere on Nibiru). The arena for
that was South America. The next phase was when the leader known in
the Old World as Ningishzidda (in Sumerian) or Thoth (in Egypt) was
exiled, and came with his followers to Mesoamerica where he was
called the Winged Serpent (Quetzalcoatl). Separated from the wars
and feuds of the Old World -- resulting among other things in
Religion as we know it today -- the people in the Americas
apparently retained the olden knowledge and lore untainted.
to your findings, at about 11,000 BC, 7,400 BC, and 3,800 BC as a
result of the appearance of Nibiru or the visitation of the Anunnaki,
mankind experienced significant technological and/or sociological
For example, the year 3,760 AD coincides with the beginning of
the Jewish Calender and according to you the time of the state visit
to Earth by Anu (a leader of the Anunnaki or Nibiru) in Nippur,
Sumer’s “cult center.” Assuming a relatively stable
orbit for Nibiru, that would place a similar event in 3,440 AD.
According to NOSTRADAMUS scholar John Hogue, the quatrains of
Nostradamus predict that the Earth will be destroyed by the
expanding Sun in the year 3,797 AD. Mayan calendars are
interpreted to indicate an “ending” at 2012 AD, and so on.
How do such predictions jive with the data on the ancient clay
SITCHIN: That Mankind's progression from Palaeolithic (Old
Stone Age) to Mesolithic (Middle Stone Age) to Neolithic (New Stone
Age) and then the great Sumerian civilization, had occurred in
intervals of about 3,600 years, is a fact. That Anu visited Earth,
approved the grant of civilization (=knowledge, science, technology)
to Mankind, marked by the start of the calendar in Nippur in 3760 BC
(which is still the Hebrew/Jewish calendar), is certain (as far as I
But as I have tried to explain in my recent Seminars (though not
yet in a full length book), the visits to Earth and the nearing (at
what is called perihelion) of Nibiru do NOT coincide. This is
a point of immense significance, which those who have only read my
first book somehow ignore.
Also, the assumption that the 3600 years, as a perfect
mathematical given, is also at all times the actual orbital period,
is untenable: Even the orbit of Halley's comet, about 75 years,
varies from 74 to 76 or so. All attempts to pinpoint a precise date
for future arrivals of the planet and/or of the Anunnaki are thus
difficult questions. I will answer them once I am satisfied that,
based on historical and astronomical data, I have come up with the
retrospect, have there ever been times in your life when you wished
that you had never uncovered this knowledge so that you may have
lived a much simpler, less informed life?
SITCHIN: No. I am grateful to my fate -- or destiny (the
Sumerians distinguished between the two) -- that my teacher told me
harshly to "sit down and don’t question the Bible."
I have as a result devoted my lifetime to the study of what the
ancients knew, witnessed and recorded. I am grateful that I was
given the ability to fathom that evidence and to convey it to my
fellow humans -- to let them know how WE had come about, what our
Past has been, and thus What the Future holds; because -- as is
stated in the Lost Book of Enki and the Bible, the First Things
shall be the Last Things.

The Past Awaits Us
If Zecharia Sitchin has not yet reported enough hard evidence in
the ancient documents to support precise future predictions, who are
we to second-guess his work? Unless we can present hard
evidence to support a future coming, we should not do this amazing
research an injustice by throwing wild predictions into the wind and
obstructing the search for truth.
There is too much at stake to be taken down unproductive rabbit
holes with fear mongering and misinformation. Rather than
trying to predict the future, we should be making our future by
studying our past.

Nibiru's Orbit Identified
Uranus and Neptune don't follow their expected paths. Pluto is
far too small an influence to account for this.
John Murray, a planetary scientist, studied 13 comets with well
known orbits. He found them "... all aligned along a band, as
would be expected if they had been perturbed by some large
body." That large body above Aquarius, [Nibiru], is estimated
to be 2 trillion miles away and orbit the Sun every 5 million years.
[Discover, Oct 2001, pp 76-78]
The Pythagoreans said the revolving planets emitted notes, their
pitches being determined by their speed and distance from the Earth.
[The Search for Infinity]
In "The Lost Book of Enki" Zecharia Sitchin has
translated ancient Sumerian tablets. That translation details the
planet Nibiru's orbit: "An outermost abode he chose for
himself... A Shar [3,600 years] shall be his circuit..." Nibiru
is also described as shepherding the gods [other planets]. (pp
54,55) Jupiter synchronizes asteroid orbits and shepherds the
planets into rounder orbits. Sitchin's translation implies that
Nibiru adopted a round orbit from a very highly elliptical one that
brought it close to Earth. The gods descended from Nibiru where
there alone they had seemingly immortal life spans.

The Sumerians bequeathed their 60 minutes x 60 seconds system of
time and circle arc to us. They divided the cosmos accordingly.
"Some 51 light-years away lies an extrasolar system similar
to our own: a yellow star in Ursa Major has a Jupiter-size planet
orbiting at a distance comparable to that of Jupiter from our
sun." [Scientific American, Oct 2001, p 23]
Nibiru isn't returning in 2003 but something epic is.

Lost Book of Enki:
Memoirs and Prophecies
November 15, 2001
Will the past become our future? Is humankind destined to
repeat the events that occurred on another planet, far away
Sitchin's bestselling series The Earth Chronicles provided
humanity's side of the story-as recorded on ancient clay
tablets and other Sumerian artifacts--concerning our origins
at the hands of the Anunnaki, "those who from heaven to
earth came." In The Lost Book of Enki, we can view this
saga from a different perspective through this richly
conceived autobiographical account of Lord Enki, an Anunnaki
god, who tells the story of these extraterrestrials' arrival
on Earth from the 12th planet Nibiru. The object of their
colonization: gold to replenish the dying atmosphere of
their home planet. Finding this precious metal results in
the Anunnaki creation of homo sapiens--the human race--to
mine this important resource.
The Sixth Book of The Earth Chronicles
by Zecharia Sitchin
Zecharia Sitchin's groundbreaking research into the code left behind by the
creators of humanity.
Explains how the Anunnaki were not merely the mythical gods of the
Sumerians, but rather the founders of human life on Earth.
Using Biblical and ancient Sumerian sources, explains how to decode these
messages our star ancestors left behind.
Daring to challenge our long-held beliefs about
the origins of man, Zecharia Sitchin suggests that humans are not the children
of God, but rather the children of the Anunnaki, an ancient race from the planet
Nibiru. His revolutionary theories are supported by his intense scrutiny of not
only ancient Sumerian texts but also stone structures all over the world. The
similarities and astrological significance of these formations suggests that
rather than looking for guidance from leaders here on Earth, humanity should
instead look to the sky for answers.
Destruction of Atlantis:
Compelling Evidence of the Sudden
of the First Great Civilization
Frank Joseph, Zecharia Sitchin
most comprehensive reconstruction of the history and fate of the legendary
ancient civilization of Atlantis.
Draws together compelling evidence from geology, astronomy, myths, and
ancient texts to prove the existence of Atlantean civilization and its
catastrophic end. Includes a vivid narrative that re-creates the last days of Atlantis.
Represents 20 years worth of research across the globe.
All human cultures, from classical and biblical
to native North and South American, share the myth of an ancient deluge, often
coinciding with a rain of fire from the heavens. What accounts for this shared
myth of environmental catastrophe? Now, in The Destruction of Atlantis, author
Frank Joseph links this worldwide cultural phenomenon to the story of the lost
civilization of Atlantis, which in a single day and night disappeared into the
sea in a violent cataclysm.
In the most comprehensive account of this
legendary island, Joseph provides compelling evidence that Atlantis was at the
root of all subsequent human civilizations. Brilliantly refuting years of modern
skepticism, Joseph combines evidence from archaeology, geology, astronomy, and
ancient lore to locate Atlantis in the context of Near Eastern Bronze Age
society at the end of the 13th century B.C. The author seamlessly combines hard
scientific evidence with a stunning imaginative re-creation of what it must have
been like to walk the streets of Atlantis in its last days. The resulting
portrait of a mighty empire corrupted by an overreaching lust for wealth and
power offers an important lesson to our own materialistic civilization poised on
the brink of ecological disaster.
Is Modern Science Catching Up With
Technology ... or Knowledge of the Ancients?
Space travel ... Genetic engineering...Computer science ... Astounding achievements as new as tomorrow. But stunning
recent evidence proves that as these ultramodern advances were known to our
forfathers millions of yrsterdays ago ... as early as 3,000 years before the
birth of Christ!
In this remarkable companion volume to his
landmark EARTH CHRONICLES series, author Zecharia Sitchin reexamines the
teachings of the ancients in the light of mankind's latest scientific
discoveries -- and uncovers breathtaking, never-before- revealed facts that
challenge long-held, conventional beliefs about our planet and our species.
A Guide to Visions, Angels and Other Emissaries
Ultimate Human Experience The interaction between mankind and spiritual beings
-- of Divine Encounters -- as recorded in scriptures and ancient texts provides
a powerful drama that spans Heaven and Earth, involving worship and devotion,
eternity and mortality, love and sex, jealousy and murder. But how much of these
are based on real happenings and how much is based on myth? With a visionary's
ardor and a scientist'sattention to detail, Zecharia Sitchin, author of The
Earth Chronicles, gives a stunning account of human interaction with celestial
travelers. He also provides further proof that prophetic dreams, visions, UFO
encounters, and other extraordinary phenomena are indeed the hallmark of
intervention by intergalactic emissaries who reach out from other realms to
enlighten, guide, punish, and comfort us in times of need. Sitchin's research
and theories, illustrated with maps and charts, chronicle a magnificent and
inspiring journey through history, from the dawn of time to the approach of the

Essays Presented at the First Sitchin Studies Day
Zecharia Sitchin (Editor),
Madeleine Briskin, Neil Freer
This book of essays presented at the first Sitchin Studies day is a must
for those of us that have read the Earth Chronicles. Upon reading the first few
pages, I discovered that I was not alone in my love of Sitchin, I was in fact in
very good company. I especially appreciated the essay by Neil Freer with his
"take no prisoners" logic. While all the essays clear up confusion and
answer my questions, his was my favorite. This is not a book of theory, of the
perception of myths, or wishful thinking. This book tells it like it is. I think
it can stand on it's own to capture the interest of even those unaware of
Sitchins work. For those of us who are aware, it validates our thinking and lets
us know that we are not alone!
