The idea of an extra-solar planet wandering into our solar system in the latter’s juvenile settlement phase, and becoming the 10th planet is incredible. That it was described as having an elliptical circuit of 3,600 human years, with its perigee near the sun, raises the question – how is it not known as a regular visitor in our heavens? That it is depicted on a Sumerian cylinder seal from about 2,500 BC is surely inadequate evidence of its existence. It should have come around about 900 AD, surely!
Mistakes can be made when relying on ‘memories.’ Consider the evidence of cryptomnesia or false memory arising during hypnotherapy, especially when seeking past memories; there have been some terrible social consequences for families erroneously blamed for all matter of happenings, including satanic practices, based on such alleged recovered memories. Further, honest mistakes can be made, eg. Velikovsky apparently erred when he claimed that Venus had been a comet before it became a planet.
Then, there is the destruction of planet Tiamat. Did Marduk/Nibiru/Planet X collide with it physically? Or, did Nibiru destroy Tiamat electromagnetically? If the latter (a more likely event), how could there be any transfer of the so-called DNA? What was the nature and form of this DNA that it could be transferred? Was it just bacteria? While transpermia is becoming an acceptable theory for explaining the origin of life on Earth, could it validate Sitchin’s claim?
The story of Nibiru is tied in, by Sitchin, with the arrival of giants on Earth looking for gold 445,000 years ago, and the subsequent creation by these giants of ‘the Adam’ (note the prefix ‘the’) – a human to become a serf, and to help with the digging for gold.
Sitchin’s efforts to authenticate the Old Testament lead him to rely on Sumerian texts. That is a reasonable approach. However, he seems to quote the Bible at times to corroborate these texts.
In the event, could my genes authenticate my father’s identity correctly?
