Editorial Reviews. riapeocaconcou.ml Review. Zecharia Sitchen's The 12th Planet is the starting point on a quest that spans six books and 20 years worth of ancient. Zecharia Sitchin (July 11, – October 9, ) was an author of books proposing an . Since the release of his first book The 12th Planet in , Sitchin has written seven other books as part of his Earth Chronicles series, as well as six. The 12th Planet (Book I) by Zecharia Sitchin - Over the years, startling evidence has been unearthed, challenging established notions of the origins of Earth and.
Whether you choose to believe any of it or not is irrelevant, the fact is, only a handful of people in the world are able to read these tablets. I've also seen a lot of nasty things written by doctors and professors regarding the entirety of Sitchin's work, but I have seen no evidence that they themselves are able to understand the cuneiform.
So, I would like to suggest that detail to anyone slightly put-off by such reviews. Another criticism I've seen is that there is too much information on each page, but this is not a book you're supposed to breeze through. Quite honestly, I appreciate Sitchin's attention to fine detail and even though it does feel repetitive at times, I appreciate how he shows all connections to the Sumerian tablets. Overall, this is a book you have to invest time in, it's not a book you can just pick up, put in your bag and read when the mood strikes you.
In doing so, hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as I did. View all 7 comments. Jun 21, Sheila rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I thought this one was great! At first I thought maybe the author was a bit off, with his extra planet theroy. But I was amazed at what I learned from this one.
Mostly about how the Bible stories are in fact true, but based on MUCH older stories from an ancient Sumerian civilization. It is astonishing just how much these ancients recorded and how much they knew. How advanced they were! Where did all the intelligence go that those who came before us had?
Hummmm makes a person wonder! Aug 12, Rinda Rinda rated it really liked it. It's difficult for me to believe many of the theories laid out in this book as pure fact or non-fiction when the author doesn't site his sources on the ready as I'm reading.
If the author claims something seemingly outrageous as fact, then I'd like to be able to see a footnote and double check that statement easily. Also, I'd like to be able to know where all the drawings of clay tablets included throughout the book are located, and how I can see for myself that it is real and true.
I understand It's difficult for me to believe many of the theories laid out in this book as pure fact or non-fiction when the author doesn't site his sources on the ready as I'm reading.
The 12th Planet (Book I)
I understand Z. Sitchin is an expert on all things ancient Sumerian, but don't expect your readers to just take your word as fact. This is not to say that I hated the book because regardless of all that, I found it extremely interesting.
If you soldier on through some of the dry spots and especially the many eye-brow raising theories, there will be moments when the reader may say "Hmmm, I never thought about it that way" or "I could totally see that being true". To be honest, I'd like to see Hollywood try to make this into a movie someday. View all 4 comments. Zachariah Sitchins books are detailed with actual translations of Ancient Cuniform clay tablet writings.
They are Sumerian Writings , the language which brought about Aramaic, which in turn brought about Hebrew and Arabic. His books are filled with historical facts, with awesome translations, actual pictures of the cuniforms themselves, many of which are pictorial in nature they appear in his books.
Each of the books is a veritable treasure-house of knowledge, of scientific breakthroughs into understanding what has happened in ancient civilizations, regarding gods alien races , and their meaning present in our scriptures today. When I went to college I minored more or less in religious studies. I'm also a massive lover of history. Granted, the theories and concepts brought forth by Sitchin, while at times seem outlandish on the surface, are no more so then believing in a one, true almighty being who made man from clay and woman from a rib, has angels and demons battling it out in some war of good and evil.
Perhaps many more thousands of years ago then mainstream conventional science is willing to accept. Certainly more than religious zealots who still believe Earth is only 6, years old which science as proven to be false time and time again are willing to accept. Over those thousands of years, as man became more "civilized" and "educated," those belief systems evolved Don't always take things for face value.
Open your mind to the possibility that what we've been taught may not actually be "the truth. This fact is not up for debate. Look it up. If you're into alternative liens of thinking about who we are and where we came from FYI, book 2 of this series Dec 22, Owlseyes on notre dame, it's so strange a hour blaze and The texts that spoke of their feats said of one that he "brought down Inanna from Heaven, to the E-Anna temple made her descend.
We shall call it the Twelfth Planet". Did we and our Mediterranean ancestors really acquire this advanced civilization on our own? Could this have been the Nefilim's purpose in colonizing Earth? Let him carry the toil of the gods! The author develops at length the minuciae of the "production" of a working man by genetic engineering, and offers alternative readings of the biblical Deluge, this time around including the "gods" within the plot, and relating also the whole chronology with climatological changes in the planet.
It all looks that, by the time of the Flood, there was serious confrontion between the gods. So they left. Aware, however, of the impending calamity, and of its global impact, the Nefilim took steps to save their own skins. With Earth about to be engulfed by water, they could go in only one direction for protection: Ishtar cried out like a woman in travail: Eridu - Earth Station is established in southern Mesopotamia.
A hospitable climate in the Near East. Enki establishes sea routes to southern Africa, organizes gold-mining operations. Sippar, the spaceport, and other cities of the gods are built. Man - the "Primitive Worker" - is fashioned by Enki and Ninhursag.
The sons of the gods take the daughters of Man as wives. Regressive types of Man roam Earth. Enlil, disenchanted with Mankind, seeks its demise. This is a fantastic historical account, full of daring hypothesis, yet many well-researched and backed. Nonetheless, detractors of Sitchin's ideas abound. Michael S. View all 12 comments.

An interesting book. The author takes all the relics- all the antiquities of history- all the religious texts- all the mythologies from Rome, Greece, Israel, India and Sumer Some points are interesting- some points are plausible- and some points leave you scratching you head saying I was about to put it down several times but kept with it through the end. The author ha An interesting book. The author has eleven other books on this subject Will I read another???
Probably not. I think I have the gist of what he's trying to say.
This book is listed under non-fiction I would call it a cross between historical fiction and sci-fi. As a note: Jun 29, David Broome rated it really liked it. While many people look at Zecharia Sitchin as a kook who used questionable anthropology and archaeology as a way to sell "alien astronauts" as the basis of sentient life on earth, I find his works to be passionate and well informed studies of Sumerian lore.
Even if you discount entirely the concept of the Annunaki as aliens, this series is still a masterful work of bringing some of the most ancient tales to modern man. View 1 comment. May 25, K. Robertson Poblete. I have a hard time how to categorize this book: It is definitely an interesting read. Zecharia Sitchin spent most of his life understanding the Sumerian language and interpreting the cuneiform.
His hypothesis is that men were created from the image and likeness of alien visitors some , years ago from the planet called Nibiru that is near Neptune and revolves our orbit in a strange slit-like fashion so astronomers have been missing it. So, if you are a rel I have a hard time how to categorize this book: So, if you are a religious person, you will definitely dismiss this book because it runs against the Biblical teaching that we were created in the image and likeness of God via Adam and Eve as mentioned in the first book of the Holy Bible, Genesis.
But what if the God of Adam and Eve actually came from an unknown planet? We don't know where God the Father actually came from, right? There is no telling about his story in the Bible. He just happens to be there and he created the world in 7 days. What if he and Jesus and Mary and all the angels and saints are not in heaven but in some planet that cannot be detected by even the most powerful telescope?
I used to think about it that way when I was a kid. Now, I know better. Faith is something not to think about. Faith is something that you feel. It is in your core. It is in your soul. Although you think and you are ready to defend your belief I do, always ready that's why I am a self-declared apologist lol , it is hard to argue with people who would like to always be rational when it comes to faith.
There are just so many things in the Catholic faith that is not in the Bible because they are parts of the Catholic tradition: Overall, this book feels like a non-fiction and I think it should be categorize as that. However, my Catholic faith still says that there is some fiction fantasy in it but I will not argue which parts. That, actually, depends on what you believe is true.
May 06, Frobisher rated it really liked it Shelves: The opening book of the epic Earth Chronicles lays out some serious cosmogony of our solar system, based on Sumerian texts and interesting conjecture. Look people, its not science. And its not "bullshit," there are books that lie in between that spectrum and this is one of them.
You can categorically disagree with everything Sitchin comes up with, but he really is not a loon, or crazy, and he is especially not a bad scholar. Read the books for fun, pause and reflect on how odd and meaningless a lo The opening book of the epic Earth Chronicles lays out some serious cosmogony of our solar system, based on Sumerian texts and interesting conjecture.
Read the books for fun, pause and reflect on how odd and meaningless a lot of ancient texts seem, marvel at Sitchin's interpretation, and then ask yourself what you think is really true. Or you could read 10 pages and toss it in the bin, deciding its "utter rubbish," but you'll be doing yourself a disservice. There is a reason these books have been gadflys at the body of "real scholarship" for about 30 years -- they offer at least some explanation for otherwise very inexplicable texts which most scholars would rather ignore than try to explain away.
NO ONE. This was terrible.
It starts off well enoughthink Eric von Daniken's Chariot of the Gods. Makes you think. And then Stitchin takes off on hugely conflicting tangents. On the one hand, he claims that the 12th planet took x thousands of years to orbit through the solar system compared to one year for Earth and that's why so much could be accomplished on Earth with, as the Bible claims, people living or ruling for thousands of years.
Then he goes on to claim that the Earth itself was created whe This was terrible. Then he goes on to claim that the Earth itself was created when the 12th planet blew up.
Give me a break! I struggled to get through this boring and conflicting pack of stories and would have to be paid a heckuva lot of money to consider reading any more in the series. Do not make me go there! View all 5 comments. Jan 07, Debasish Das rated it really liked it. Outrageous, controversial, literalism of myth, a story of False History, Fake Science and Pseudo-religion: Better still, it will drive one into reading more about ancient pre-history of the Near-East. Finally, as Graham Hancock —the famous author- says: As the counter-argument, Sitchin painstakingly arranges the pantheon of 12 Greek Gods along side the 12 Roman Gods, and the Egyptian pantheon of 12 Gods headed by Ra, and even Vedic Gods, to postulate the uncanny similarity between all of them pointing to a single Sumerian source of origin-to the highland region between Tigris and Euphrates.
Why the outer-most planet Pluto is having an orbital plane dramatically different than other planets? What is the origin of the neat belt of asteroids , arranged like a bracelet, separating the inner planets from the outer ones? How could the ancients ever observe and conclude the exceptionally long celestial events , such as the precession cycle, the Great Year of 25, years that is divided into twelve constellations of years each for the twelve Zodiac signs — the process where the very axis of our wobbling planet makes a circular clock-wise rotation around its own axis once in years, , i.
What is the origin of iconography associated with the Cross, and a winged planet found throughout religious texts? Sitchin proposes answer to each of these and many more questions in building his founding citadel of proofs of an alien connection to our planet: That there existed a lost Planet Tiamat in the early stage of planetary evolution, which was collided and broken by a rogue Planet Marduk pulled into the solar system by gravitational force, resulting in creation of planet Earth and the asteroid belt.
The planet Marduk is the 12th planet that orbits the sun in a highly elliptical orbit once only every years. Around 4,45, years ago, the highly intelligent Nefilim or Anunnaki race of the 12th planet descended on the earth, counted by them as the 7th planet from the outer-most edge of Solar System- and set up permanent earth stations in Mesopotamia.
Our lives and civilization is not evolved linearly from lesser life forms to monkeys to man as proposed by Darwin: The pioneer of such inter-planetary exploration was Enki, or Ea ; son of Anu — the chief deity of the 12th planet. After 50, years; Enlil — brother of Enki- is descended down on earth to establish the inter-planetary mission control center at Nippur, Mesopotamia; while Enki — synonymous with Greek God Poseidon — is given the charge of the Lower World — Southern Africa, to establish gold mining operations, and establish sea-routes from Africa to Mesopotamia, where the mined gold was refined into ingots at the Bad-Tibira metallurgical center in the fossil-energy rich Mesopotamia, and transported to the 12th planet from the spaceport at Sippar.
About 1,00, years pass by, and the workers at the gold mining facility revolt and complain to Anu about the never-ending hard work in the dark depths of the mines. However, the mass produced perfect mankind was sterile and without the reproductive genes.
The 12th Planet
Adam and Eve, it is reported, were the first homo sapiens who -with help from the friendly God Enki — were mutated from this deficient reproductive genes and were able to reproduce.
Enlil then ordered to completely wipe-off the human race by cutting off the food-supply — by introducing wide-ranging famines and starvation deaths. Enky- however could not keep such a secret only to himself and provided all the design details to construct a submarine to Noah, who was able to sustain the Great Flood, and re-establish life after the floods receded.
The Gods, fled the earth during the Deluge in spacecrafts, and when the earth was being devastated by unthinkably massive floods, were sky-born and pressed against the glass-windows of the rockets looking down, unable to control their emotions seeing the race they had created themselves getting wiped out.
The 12th Planet is book 1 of the Earth Chronicles series, and is on part astronomic theory, one part anthropology, one part linguistics, and one part fiction. Sitchin does an excellent job of putting forth his theory of where man originated, using the Old Testament, Ancient Akkadian, Mesopotamian, and Summerian Texts as his initial building blocks. The first half of the book will draw those interested in early civilizations and languages, as well as theologists, deeply into the book.
Everyone e The 12th Planet is book 1 of the Earth Chronicles series, and is on part astronomic theory, one part anthropology, one part linguistics, and one part fiction.
Everyone else, will either love or hate it. The first out of pages, give or take 10, are Sitchin's observations and interpretations of Ancient Texts, building his argument slowly and deliberately. It works, but at a very tedious price.
The final 70 pages are the real meat-and-potatoes of the entire book, where Sitchin lays out his theory in full. The basic premise is that Man, Homo Sapiens , were created by an advanced race of beings from a planet in our Solar System.
This planet, the 12th Planet, orbits the Sol every 3, years. It's a planet that had come screaming into our system, destroying half of a much larger Earth with one of it's satellites, creating the asteroid belt from Earth, and moving our orbit closer to the sun.
The 12th Planet
The 12th planet was then caught by the Sol's gravity, and settled into a large elliptical orbit. My summary does not do justice to the depth at which Sitchin goes into detail, but that's the very basics of his theory.
Whether or not you agree with his theory, and whether or not you would call it absurd, it's still a fascinating read, and still recommended to anyone with a curiosity in ancient civilizations and their correlation with astrology and astronomy. The best moment of the book, however, at the very end, where Sitchin does not insist that he is right and that everything is fact, but instead poses 2 more questions for the reader, and leaves the conclusion for you to make.
This book by Zecharia Sitchin was a very lengthy and enjoyable read, especially towards the final pages. This book is definitely for an open-minded type person that is knowledgeable in quite a few areas. The ideas and suggestions about aliens generally gets a lot of people worked up about how plausible or unbelievable they are, however Sitchin incorporates science, archaeology, the Bible, Sumerian creation stories, etc. When looking at stories of Noah, This book by Zecharia Sitchin was a very lengthy and enjoyable read, especially towards the final pages.
The author does an excellent job of helping define an exact time table for all the dates starting with the arrival of the Nephillim and Enki, who bares strong resemblances to a mixture of YHWH and even Satan, helping to create man. Whether you dub this as ridiculous nonsense mixed in pseudo-science or take it as completely verifiable, this book is worth a read for people and at the very least would make a better summer blockbuster than the garbage I have seen over the years.
I personally feel there is a bit of truth in what Sitchin has proposed, and not many people are cuneiform scholars, so it is difficult to verify or refute his claims. Mar 19, J.

This is a difficult book to review, there are those who fully commit to the ancient astronaut theory based solely on Mr. Sitchin's works, I am not one of them.
The 12th Planet (Book I)
The 12th Planet presents documentation for a radical new theory which, by answering some age-old questions, merely widens the ripples in the pool. Now a recognized scholar has come forth with a theory that is the most astonishing of all. Focusing primarily on ancient Sumeria, he reveals with awesome precision a complete history of the Solar System as told by the Anunnaki from Nibiru, a planet that orbits close to Earth every 3, years. The 12th Planet is the critical sourcebook on these ancient astronauts--how they got here, when they came, and how their technology and culture have influenced humankind for thousands of years.
The 12th Planet , the first book of the series, brings to life the Sumerian civilization and presents millennia-old evidence of the existence of Nibiru, the home planet of the Anunnaki, and the landings of the Anunnaki on Earth every 3, years.
The Stairway to Heaven , the second book, incorporates ancient Egyptian evidence to show that the gateway between the mortal and the divine was a spaceport in the Sinai Peninsula, with the Giza pyramids and the Sphinx serving as beacons for the landings.
The Wars of Gods and Men , the third book, additionally embraces Canaanite, Hittite, and Hindu sources to include in these investigations the incidents of the Tower of Babel and the upheaval of Sodom and Gomorrah, concluding that nuclear weapons were used on Earth 4, years ago. When Time Began , the fifth book, explores ancient knowledge of Heaven and Earth and the interwoven cycles that gave rise to astronomy, the zodiac and astrology, and stone calendars such as Stonehenge, revealing the secret of New Ages past and future.
This accumulation of discoveries and the origins of humankind and the solar system are further discussed in the companion books Genesis Revisited and Divine Encounters.
I trust that modern science will continue to confirm ancient knowledge. Zecharia Sitchin was born in Russia and grew up in Palestine, where he acquired a profound knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history and archaeology of the Near East. One of the few scholars able to read the clay tablets and interpret ancient Sumerian and Akkadian, Sitchin based The Earth Chronicles series on the texts and pictorial evidence recorded by the ancient civilizations of the Near East.
His books have been widely translated, reprinted in paperback editions, converted to Braille for the blind, and featured on radio and television programs. Sign Up to receive our online or printed catalogs If you wish to receive announcements of books in categories of your interest.

Second, although I am unclear as to the technique of releasing the gold into the atmosphere my issue is stems from the purpose. Sitchin has constructed what appears to be a convincing argument, but when he gets close to single images on ancient tablets, he falls back into the literalism of "Here is an image of the gods in rockets.
I knew hardly anything about the fertile crescent and its civilisations sumer, arcadia, etc before reading, and I consider myself quite well read in stuff like that.
