In a set of 6000-year-old stone tablets, the Sumerians of Mesopotamia vividly describe cataclysmic planetary events which billions of years ago gave our solar system it s current configuration, fashioning our own planet in the process. Sumerian records also mention advanced human cloning technology and the existence of an additional planet in our solar system referred to as Nibiru, which is currently unknown to modern science, and is the recorded home of our human ancestors, according to these ancient records. Eminent scientists agree that calculations tend to confirm the accuracy of the ancient Sumerian creation story. Now unmanned U.S. space probes have photographed pyramids and other strange features on the surface of Mars, suggesting this was once the site of an alien space base.
Join Zecharia Sitchin, author of Genesis Revisited and The 12th Planet, as we embark on an exciting new journey into uncharted territory; a provocative reassessment of who we are and where we stand in the Universe. Includes the facts about these amazing discoveries along with a series of spellbinding interviews with researchers and the best known, most credible scientists in the world today. Packed with expert analyses, in-depth commentary, and unforgettable conclusions about these new and emerging discoveries.
Zecharia Sitchin (1920-2010) was an internationally acclaimed researcher and author of 14 books that retell the history and prehistory of mankind and planet Earth by combining archaeology, the Bible, and ancient Mesopotamian and Egyptian texts with the latest scientific discoveries ranging from space exploration to biology. Able to read millennia-old Sumerian cuneiform tablets, his writings treat ancient sources not as myth, but as records of actual events. The result is a saga of flesh and blood, astronauts, gods and Earthlings, and a chain of events from the past that leads to a prophetic future.
Mr. Sitchin was born in Russia and grew up in Palestine, where he acquired profound knowledge of ancient and modern languages, the Bible, and the archaeology and history of the ancient Near East. He studied at the London School of Economics and Political Science and graduated from the University of London, majoring in economic history. A journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he later made his home in New York City.
Mr. Sitchins research and books have been featured in dozens of journals internationally, most recently in an article appearing in The New York Times on Jan. 10, 2010. He was heralded as the 1996 Scientist of the Year by the International Forum on New Science, and has been a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Oriental Society, the Middle East Studies Association of North America, and the Israel Exploration Society.
His trailblazing books, whose combined sales run into the millions, have been translated into 25 languages as well as Braille. They have been bestsellers in countries ranging from Germany to Russia, Turkey to Japan, Spain to Brazil; have had countless reviews, articles and feature stories in major U.S., British, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, Greek, and Turkish dailies and periodicals as well as scores of other publications around the world.
His first book, The 12th Planet, celebrated its 30th anniversary of publication (and by then the 45th mass market printing in the USA) in 2006. It was followed by The Stairway to Heaven (1980), The Wars of Gods and Men (1985), The Lost Realms (1990), Genesis Revisited (1990), When Time Began (1993), Divine Encounters (1995), The Cosmic Code (1998), The Lost Book of Enki (2002), The Earth Chronicles Expeditions (2004), Journeys to the Mythical Past (2007), The End of Days (2007), The Earth Chronicles Handbook (2009), and There Were Giants Upon the Earth (2010).
