The idea that Earth has been visited by aliens at some point in the distant past is not a new one. Erik Von Daniken first touted the theory in his book, The Chariots of the Gods, back in the 1970's. Many people's first introduction to this concept has been via Von Daniken's ideas. While he was widely read, the problem always was that his interpretation of ancient texts and artifacts has always lacked a certain key. Zecharia Sitchin provided that key!
Zecharia Sitchin started his research by questioning Biblical tales while still at school in his native Israel. He notes that parts of Genesis (6:4) reads "There were giants in the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came into the daughters of men, and they bare children unto them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."
Sitchin went much further examining the old Hebrew texts. He realised that the Hebrew word "Nefilim" was indeeed the name for the giants talked of in the Bible and the "men of renown" were really men of the "shem". More importantly Nefilim in its original Sumerian interpretation literally means "those who came down to earth from heaven".
Sitchin goes on to claim that the Earth was visited by aliens as far back as 450,000 years ago. These aliens came from another unknown planet of the solar system that the ancients called called Nibiru. He claims that these aliens were seeking to save their atmosphere from serious degradation and for this they needed extremely finely powdered gold. This gold dust was then pumped into the atmosphere in an effort to resolve the problems associated with heat retention when their planet was in the aphelion region of its long looping orbit around the sun. Gold was, of course, relatively plentiful on Earth and is even used today by NASA because of its unique properties.
Sitchin applied his understanding of ancient Biblical stories to studies of ancient (even older) writing from Sumeria and Mesapotamia, reaching the general conclusion that the Nefilim (Gods and Sons of God) used advanced genetic engineering to create humans from a combination of Nefilim genes and those of a compatible pre-human evolved species. The result was basically us, initially created to mine gold for the Nefilim but later with the capacity to understand commands, speak and procreate!
Author Lloyd Pye confirms and expands on Zecharia Sitchin's interpretations.
Zecharia Sitchin studied many ancient civilizations and concluded that the Gods worshipped by all of them were really ancient space travellers with a superb knowledge of advanced technology and a desire for gold! When viewed this way, much of the world's history, as told in the Bible and other manuscripts, falls into place. Suddenly we can understand why there were gold mines 8-12,000 years old in South and Central America. Sitchin makes the claim that humankind was developed to mine this gold to satisfy their needs.
Sitchin postulated the theory that Nibiru, Planet X, took an eliptical orbit around the Sun (and perhaps a dead star further out). His hypotheses are mapped out as a time and distance ephemeris orbital modeal at this site:
Many catastrophic events in the earth's past can be explained by the 3600 year cycle of Nibiru. Depending on its distance from the earth at the time of passage, many Biblical disasters such as the Great Flood and the sinking of Atlantis can now be better understood. These events cyclically occure as a result of the immense gravitational pull this planet imposes on the earth and the other planets within the solar system.
Sitchin based many of his observations of Nibiru and its behaviour on historical texts, the Bible and other such material. He especially focused on the Sumerian artifacts that described the Annunaki (the Nefilim/Gods) and their planet, which predated all other human works.
