Nibiru-Planet X of Solar System in Sumerian Tablets
What is Nibiru?
According to Sumerian clay tablets, a very large celestial body or planet exists in our solar system, which has quite irregular orbit and it returns to its elliptical orbit between Jupiter and Mars in every 3600 years. Upon its return, it causes serious damages to our planet.
We can find another reference of this planet, which is also known as the Planet X, in Zechria Sitchin’s book “the 12th Planet" that our solar system has eleven planets (considering moon as a planet) and the Sun. in addition to the 11 planet, there was another member planet which is known as the twelfth planet or Nibiru.
Interesting facts about planet discovery
- Until 1780, we did not have any clue about the existence of Uranus.
- We identified Neptune as a planet only in 1846.
- Pluto--the smallest planet of our solar system—discovered in 1930.
Note: The word “Nibiru” has its origin in Akkadian language which means point of transition or crossing.
References to Sumerian Tablets:
In Sumerian tablet named Enuma Elish, there is a description of the planet Nibiru, which I already mentioned at the first paragraph of this post. Another Sumerian tablet (Cuneiform tablet) described Nibiru as a point on the path of transition.
What exactly Zecharia Sitchin’s translation says about Nibiru?
In his book the 12th Planet, Sitchin describes that Nibiru is a giant planet which passes our solar system in every 3600 years and it inhabitants, who are the Annunakis, interact with the inhabitants of our planet. One interesting fact about the timeline of passing of Nibiru in our solar system is that another of Sitchin’s book called “The end of days” mentioned that the last time Nibiru passed by our planet was in 556 B.C., which means that the next time of passing will be (-556+3600) = 3044 A.D.; but he also expressed his concern that the Annunakis might return much earlier than that anticipated time-line and their arrival time will coincide with the pole shift of our planet Earth.
So, the coming of Nibiru is just a possibility, if and only if we have to believe the Sumerian tablets’ prophesized time of arrival. Otherwise, we do not have any real concern about its arrival time.
What Kolbrin Bible told about Nibiru?
According the Marshall Masters, the writer of “Planet X and the Kolbrin Bible connection”, the planet X has been described as the “destroyer”. If you are not aware of Kolbrin Bible, it is an ancient Egyptian manuscript written by the Egyptian authors around 3600 years ago. Now, take a brief look at what Kolbrin Bible has to say about planet X:
- When the destroyer will arrive in our solar system, men will already have great knowledge and wisdom.
- The elites of the society will keep the news of arrival secret.
- After the catastrophe, only a few men will survive.
- The destroyer (Nibiru) was responsible for the sinking of Atlantis and Noah’s flood.
- Earth had encountered the destroyer in the past and then it was reborn (perhaps, the phrase “reborn” here means a new orbit of Earth and the beginning of new age).
- In the past seas rose up and created giant tsunami because of this destroyer.
- When the destroyer passed our solar system, Earth remained dark for a longer period of time.
- Earth weather became poisonous and its environment got encompassed with dust.
- When men came out from their safe hide-out and refuges, they saw a very different and changed world.
Conclusion: Despite the mention of a destroyer or a giant celestial body passing by our planet, there is no clear mention in the Kolbrin Bible about its next appearance. And there is no way to prove that this destroyer is Nibiru.

Relation between Nibiru and 2012
I have found no direct relation between Nibiru and the famous Mayan Prediction of 2012. But the famous sleeping Prophet Edger Cacey has a very interesting reading about the change of Earth pole and the beginning of a new age when people will have the power to communicate with each other with their mind and consciousness. Unfortunately, he did not mention any timeline for this incident. Interestingly, Mayan calendar also says very similar things that Cacey’s readings revealed us: the beginning of a new age. Neither Mayan calendar nor Casey’s reading talk about the existence of Nibiru.
A few simple questions about this planet?
Is it a fairy tale planet? No, the existence of this planet is already described in ancient texts.
Is there any scientific evidence of the existence of Planet X? There is no scientific proof that it exists. But if a planet that has so large orbiting time can be very difficult to detect. Still we know very little of our universe and we are not even sure that if our Sun has a dark sister.
What David Icke said about Nibiru?
In David Icke’s book the biggest secret, he expressed his doubt about the existence of Nibiru and Zecharia Sitchin’s translation of the Sumerian tablets. He thinks that Mr. Sitchin has made some mistake in translating the part of the tablet that tells about Nibiru -- because elliptical orbit will be highly unstable. David Icke seems to be comfortable of the part of the translation that describes that there used to be a planet between Jupiter and Mars, which was known as Tiamat (watery monster) and Nibiru collided with this planet causing it to near destruction, which eventually break the planet and a smaller part of it shifted to a new orbit, which is our own planet Earth. One surprising thing is that there is an asteroid belt between the orbit of Jupitar and Mars, which the Sumerians used to believe as the debris of that collision. In Sumerian language Earth means cleaved one because the collision created a gigantic hole in it. The only place on Earth where you can find a vast hole is in the Pacific Ocean (Mariana Trench).
Despite the controversy about the translation and trustworthiness of the tablets, we have to admit one vital fact that it described and depicted the exact position and size of the planets of our solar system several thousand years back. Another stunning thing is the exact description about the color and nature of Uranus and Neptune, which we have confirmed only in this century. How a several thousand years old clay tablet can have such an accurate description of our solar system reminds that Sumerian surly had some deep understandings of the astronomy.
Whatever our ancient manuscripts says about the past incidents of our solar system, our human mind always look for evidence to convince ourselves, which is surly a great way to give acknowledgement and confirmation to the accuracy of a theory. For the time being, we do not have any concrete scientific evidence to establish the existence of Nibiru. So, let this planet resides on the Sumerian texts and wait to see what our astronomers can find for us in the future.
