Sumerian Solar System

Updated on July 19, 2012

In the 12th Planet, Book I of the Earth Chronicles, a book written by Zecharia Sitchin after 30 years of research, tells us about his discoveries of deciphering ancient cuneiform writings from the Sumerian culture. These writings are the oldest known writings we have and deciphering these texts have been the research projects of scholars for more than a century now. Who were the Sumerians people and what did their writings tell us about mankind so many years ago?

The Sumerian's were an early Mesopotamia culture and were so named by scholars after they decipher writings from a scribe who wrote that the god of scribes had bestowed on him the gift of the knowledge and that he had been initiated into the secrets of writing. He went on to say that he now understood the enigmatic words in the stone carving from the days before the flood. The scholars now knew that tablets with long columns were lexicons and dictionaries that were prepared for those initiated into knowledge of writing. This knowledge opened the door to the literary world of the Sumerian and to a new solar system.

Theory where the 12th planet belongs.

Sitchin tells us that they are called Nefilim "those who were cast down upon Earth” and that they come from the 12th planet in our solar system which they call Nibiru "the planet of the crossing." The text also tells us that these ancient people had no doubts that they were able to fly through Earth's skies along with going back and forth from Heaven and Earth.

The ancient tablets depict celestial maps and space flights to Earth that have proven to contain accurate information that ancients should not have known. Their planet Nibiru is on a wider elliptical path than the rest of the planets in our solar system and it take Nibiru 3600 years to complete an orbit.

The reason they first came here was to mine for gold and we do have proof of ancient mining as determined by carbon dating from Yale University and the University of Groningen in Holland, that sites in South Africa were mine from as early as 20,000 BC to 26,000 BC.

What did they look like? They looked like us with all the human traits such as love, jealousy and hate that goes along with our species. The tablets tell us that they were giants compared to us, but speculation is still whether this meant actual size or in status or a giant such as a ruler. Their basic garment was called a TUG and was similar to the Greek toga. They were also concerned about their hairdos, headdresses and jewelry.

      Hi ib radmasters,

      The Anunnaki counted the moon and sun, plus the nine planets we now know (including Pluto) and their planet Nibiru. You can read a bit more here which includes videos if you have the time:

      Sitchin's tells us in a lecture he gave that it was his publisher who decided on the title "The 12th Planet."
