INBOUND: Zecharia Sitchin - May 2001 -
Call It "Planet X"
THE CASE OF THE LURKING PLANET
- Is this why the Sun is going whacko with a
dramatic global increase in the frequency and intensity of earthquakes
and superstorms worldwide? See
for the most recent superstorm. It's
interesting to note Sitchin's reason here why establishment scientists
have debunked him... his discovery of the ancient claim that Earth had
been visited by Extraterrestrials, the Anunnaki . It is no different
today with the UFO cover-ups while a secret military-industrial
government suppresses the advanced technologies for energy, health and
global peace while developing their own UFO's, superweapons and global
population control "techniques". Keep your powder -- and shelters --

"Far beyond the solar system's nine known planets, a body as massive
as Mars may once have been part of our planetary system -- and it might
still be there;”
The lead paragraph in a science-fiction script?
The lead paragraph from an article by Zecharia Sitchin about Nibiru?
No. It is the lead paragraph in a report in Science News of April 7,
2001 headlined "A Comet’s Odd Orbit Hints At Hidden Planet.”
The article reports the conclusions of an international team of
astronomers who have studied an unusual comet discovered last year,
designated 2000 CR/105. It follows a vast elliptical orbit around our Sun –
an orbit that takes it way out to some 4.5 billion kilometers from the Sun,
and brings it back at its closest to the Sun to the vicinity of Neptune; it
is an orbit whose period “takes roughly 3,300 years” (according to
Sky&Telescope News of April 5, 2001).
“Such an oblong orbit is usually a sign that an object has come under
the gravitational influence of a massive body," wrote R. Cowen in
Science News. Was this the gravitational pull of Neptune? In a study to be
published in the Journal Icarus, the team of astronomers (led by Brett
Gladman of the Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur in Nice, France), after
analyzing all the possibilities, does not think so. An alternative solution,
they say, is that “the comet's orbit could be the handiwork of an as-yet
unseen planet” -- as massive as Mars -- "that would have to lie some 200 AU
from the Sun," in the so-called Kuiper Belt of cometary and other planetary
debris. This would also explain "why many members of the Belt have
orbits that angle away from the plane in which the nine known planets orbit
“Undoubtedly, something massive knocked the hell out of the Belt,"
Harold F. Levison of the Southwest Research institute in Boulder, Colorado,
told the magazine. “The question is whether it is still there now."
“Comet’s Course Hints at Mystery Planet,” was how the journal Science
headlined the discovery news in its issue of 6 April 2001. The special
report, written by the Dutch astronomer Govert Schilling, summed up the
findings in the following lead paragraph:
"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."
--------- comments from Zecharia Sitchin:
- Now, As the Sumerians Said…
- Readers of my books may well join me now in
saying: So what else is new?
- Ever since the publication of my first book (The
12th Planet) in 1976 I have asserted that Sumerian and other ancient
Near Eastern texts and depictions showed familiarity with a complete
Solar System that included, beside the Sun and the Moon, ten (not nine)
planets -- the tenth planet (or twelfth member of the Solar System)
having a vast elliptical orbit that lasts 3,600 years. Its Sumerian name
- I have-suggested that Sumerian/Akkadian texts
such as Enuma Elish (also called the Babylonian Epic of Creation) were
not mythological tales, but records of sophisticated advanced knowledge.
Establishment scientists and scholars (see a previous article, The Case
of the Misplaced Teapot, as an example) resist such an inevitable
conclusion because it requires the acceptance of the ancient claim that
Earth had been visited by Extraterrestrials, the ANUNNAKI ("Those
Who From Heaven to Earth Came") of Sumerian lore.
- According to the ancient texts as interpreted by
me, Nibiru was a planet ejected from some other planetary system in
outer space that was captured into our Solar System as it passed near
Neptune. It became involved in a collision with a pre-existing planet
where the debris of the Asteroid Belt are now. As a result of that
collision, some 4 billion years ago, the Earth and the Moon came to be
where they are now.
- And, what do you know? In an article titled
Neptune Attacks! In the 7 April 2001 issue of the magazine New
Scientist, Ivan Semeniak wrote thus:
- “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.”
- The “something,” I am more certain
than ever, was
