Publisher of Mysterious World books, Doug Elwell, discussed his research on ancient references to Planet X which connects the work of Zecharia Sitchin to Biblical writings. He noted that astronomers have actually been looking for Planet X for "over 100 years" and clarified that the use of 'X' is merely to denote that the object remains, so far, unknown. "It's not some cheesy science fiction thing," he declared, "it's a legitimate scientific endeavor." Elwell described his interpretation of Planet X as a combination of mainstream science theories on the object along with the voluminous work of Zecharia Sitchen. According to Elwell's research, Planet X circles through our solar system about every 2000 years and crosses through the asteroid belt. Elwell observed that numerous ancient texts appear to allude to Planet X and asserted that the object is actually the "core concept behind the Bible." He noted that, in the Bible, Jesus said that, much like his birth, his return would be preceded by the arrival of a bright star, which Elwell interprets, in both cases, to be Planet X. Additionally, he said that if we "take mythology at face value," various ancient cultures wrote about their highest deities facing off in battle against a "dragon" of some kind. All of these references, Elwell theorized, suggest a "cosmic war" between God and the fallen angels.
