Sitchin, Anunnaki, Nibiru and Planet X

Are Sitchin’s Nibiru and Planet X one in the same?  Was the work of Zecharia Sitchin just a clever retelling of the ancient myths of Sumeria, or was it in fact the truth.  Below is a very brief summary of some of the legend of the Anunnaki, for more in depth information I suggest you read Sitchin’s books, they are very interesting.

The idea that Earth has been visited by extraterrestrials at some point in the distant past is not a new one. You may have heard them called by other names, such as Gods, or beings from the sky. I think it is safe to assume that if they are Gods from the sky than they can be aliens.   The Anunnaki, The Watchers,The Nephilim are other names you may have heard mentioned in various ancient creation stories.

The ancient Sumerian legends are very clear: man was made to be a slave to the gods. Man was to be separate from the gods, and like a domesticated animal there was to be no intermingling between Gods and man.  To share any of their secret knowledge with man was forbidden, this included things such as technology, writing and mathematics.

As it is written similarly in the legends of most ancient cultures some of the gods decided not to follow these rules.   These gods had become very attracted to the human females and started to mate with them and marry them, creating a super race of human/god hybrids.

This did not fair well with the High God as this behavior was strictly forbidden.  Thus then battle between the gods that is written about in War in Heaven, and the Deluge. God being angry at his traitors,  decides to wipe the Earth of the terrible plague that is humanity.  He does this in the form of a great flood.  The flood myth in one form or another is also told in the stories of most ancient cultures on Earth.

These Gods or as they were called in ancient Sumeria, The Anunnaki are believed to live on a distant undiscovered planet in our own solar system.  They called this planet Nibiru.  Some believe that Nibiru is the planet that scientists have recently discovered and named Planet X.  Ancient writings say that it was a collision of Nibiru with another planet in our solar system which created Earth.

Nibiru has an orbit that only passes thorough our solar system once every 3,600 years.  Some believe that Nibiru’s orbit can explain some of the major disasters that have occurred on planet Earth throughout history, and the date of 12-21-2012 is when Nibiru will return.
