Zecharia Sitchin - Did He Solve The Mystery Of Man's Ancient Origins?
Zecharia Sitchin is the author of The Earth Chronicles. He was an amazing man who devoted his life to unravelling the mysteries of mankind's most ancient past by re-interpreting ancient texts in the light of the technology that we have today.
Did man come from the stars? Is Mythology just a lot of made up magical stories from the Dawn of Time, or could the Gods of Ancient Times have been real beings?
As a result of a lifetime of research, Zecharia Sitchin has uncovered evidence that shows it is likely that the Gods Of Old did exist.
Have you ever wondered how man evolved thousands of years ago, what the truth might be behind mysterious ancient places, myths and legends, why there are descriptions of flying machines in ancient texts from around the world, and many things that we just can't explain.
Zecharia Sitchin (sometimes mis-spelled Zechariah Sitchin or Zacharia Sitchin) was an accomplished Jewish Scholar whose knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages is second to none.
He spent much of his life studying the Old Testament and the history and archeology of the Near East, researching and re-translating many of the ancient tablets from the most ancient cities of Sumeria, Babylon and Arcadia (now mostly in Iraq). Zecharia Sitchin's revelations about the colonization of Earth about 450,000 years ago by peoples from Nibiru (often referred to as Planet X), a 12th planet in our solar system have proved to be highly controversial in the scientific and religious world.
As fantastic as his theories might sound at first, the compelling evidence that he brings into play from the ancient documents that he has translated, chronologically verified in many ways by the Old Testament, are very logical. If you believe what Zecharia Sitchin is telling us from the ancient stories that he has interpreted, mankind was created by an alien race called the Annunaki, who genetically created us from a blend of prehistoric man and themselves.

The Earth Chronicles Handbook - A Comprehensive Guide to the Seven Books of The Earth Chronicles
The Earth Chronicles series, a historical and archaeological adventure into the origins of mankind and planet Earth, began with the publication of the bestselling The 12th Planet.
The series is based on the premise that the myths from the world's earliest civilizations were in fact recollections of actual events and that the gods of ancient peoples were visitors to Earth from another planet--the Anunnaki, inhabitants of the 12th planet.
The series' books include The 12th Planet, The Stairway to Heaven, The Wars of Gods and Men, The Lost Realms, When Time Began, The Cosmic Code, and The End of Days, all products of the author's unmatched study of the ancient records of Sumer, Babylonia, Assyria, Israel, and Egypt and the civilizations of pre-Columbian America. Unearthing the hidden history of Earth and mankind, the series uses the past to unveil the meaning of the prophesied future.
Zecharia Sitchin has created an encyclopedic compendium of the key figures, sites, concepts, and beliefs to provide a unique navigational tool through this entire opus. Entries are coded to indicate at a glance their cultural origin and contain summations, commentaries, and guidance for locating the topics within all of his books, including Genesis Revisited, Divine Encounters, The Lost Book of Enki, The Earth Chronicles Expeditions, and Journeys to the Mythical Past.
Have You Heard Of Zecharia Sitchin?
Have You Read Any of Sitchin's Books?
Should Zecharia Sitchin'sTheories Be Taken Seriously?
Just because they defy all we were ever taught in school and at church, does that mean he has to be wrong, or have we been taught to believe what the government and church want us to believe?
Although it was ridiculed a lot by the scientific world when it was first published 30 years ago, Zecharia Sitchin's first book "The 12th Planet" and the subsequent books, collectively called "The Earth Chronicles" are now being taken more seriously.
The Earth Chronicles in fact make a very interesting read. The books are heavy going at times, with Sitchin trying to describe so much for you to digest and understand, that it sometimes takes several reads to comprehend fully what a chapter is about, but the events and history that he has uncovered is mind-blowing and well worth the read. Once you are hooked on reading Zecharia Sitchin, you just want to read and to learn more about our ancient past.
So much has changed in the last 30 years in our knowledge of the ancient world. There are numerous documentaries on The Discovery Channel and History Channel covering new discoveries about the ancient world, not just the Greeks, Romans and Egyptians, but older civilizations that pre-date these, and every year new artifacts are being discovered, and we are being made aware of the deeper understandings of the technological levels of these peoples.
If the Gods of ancient Sumeria, ancient Mesopotamia, ancient Egypt, ancient Greece and ancient Rome were really the same Gods, and also were real beings from Earth's distant past, not just characters from mythical tales, then this does give a whole new meaning to religion and the Gods that mankind worships. For this reason the leaders of the Catholic Church and the Jewish Faith keep silent about these theories, for if mankind was indeed created by an alien race, their having convinced countless millions of followers into believing otherwise, often as a means of maintaining control over the populace, could be cause for a revolt against religion.
I first became interested in ancient civilizations and earth's mysteries while at university, when Chariots Of The Gods was published by Erik Von Daniken. I read many books back then, on Atlantis and other mysteries of the past, and then more recently came across the works of Zecharia Sitchin. Whereas many other books listed strange artifacts and places, they didn't really manage to tie things together, whereas Sitchin paints a full picture, not just of some of these mysteries, but of the whole of man's existence on earth. The Earth Chronicles are really a great read and a compelling insight into our creation.

I think that many people with rational minds have to admit that whether Zecharia Sitchin's theories are completely true or not, the tablets from Sumeria DO EXIST, and these amazing stories from eons ago, even from before the GREAT FLOOD are most likely base don fact, not myths.
We are learning more every year about Biblical events, and archaeology is proving events to be true and identifying the timelines. Why should these events not also be true, that man was created by beings from another planet, that the GODS OF OLD were in fact peoples from a more advanced civilization, before our time began.

Was the earth and mankind created literally as in the Bible, or is there a lot of man's pre-history that is only now coming to light?
Were the Gods of Old, the Gods of the most ancient civilizations (that we know of) extraterrestrial visitors, or was man's evolution purely of earth?

I have included not only sites that support his theories, but those that do not and attempt to prove that his research is in error.
Fact is, even if not everything in Earth's past is as he describes, there is more and more evidence that much of Zecharia Sitchin's theories may well be true.

Journey To The Distant Past
In Journeys to the Mythical Past the renowned researcher of antiquity Zecharia Sitchin reveals, for the first time, the existence of a secret chamber in Egypt's Great Pyramid, and he tells his own story of an indefatigable dedication to finding the truth that almost cost him his life, accidentally or otherwise, when uncovering secrets of the Giza pyramids and Sphinx.
Exposing hidden artifacts that contradict establishment assumptions or that baffle scientists, Sitchin's firsthand accounts of his explorations take the reader into the inner workings of the Vatican, the enigma of a futuristic computer from millennia ago, and the secret handiwork of a Divine Architect at Stonehenge, at Malta, and at a site in the Americas.
Looking deep into antiquity, Sitchin offers astounding evidence that links the Nazca lines and a baffling adjoining site to the Departure from Earth of the Anunnaki, the ancient gods who, he believes, vowed to Return.

Chariots Of The Gods, which was originally published as a series of articles in a German magazine, and eventually published in 1968 after it achieved a cult following, became an instant best seller. Erich Von Daniken brings together a number of ancient artifacts and anomalies in our history, and attempts to attribute them to aliens.
Although there are many holes in his theories, he started the world thinking about the possibility that our planet was visited by aliens, leaving to an increased publication of other books on Atlantis, The Bermuda Triangle etc, and of course more interest in Zecharia Sitchin works.
The End Of Days - Armageddon And Prophecies Of The Return
Thirty years ago, Zecharia Sitchin began writing the Earth Chronicle series, which posits the theory (supposedly recorded in Sumerian myth) that extraterrestrials, the Annunaki, arrived on Earth eons ago and genetically engineered humans.
Much of this book is taken up with this as a background story, but that doesn't mean newbies can just jump in and fully comprehend everything immediately.
Although Sitchin helpfully highlights key points in boldface, there is a lot of background information which he describes in great detail in his earlier books, that make essential reading if this book is to be fully comprehended.
Readers attempting to deal with hundreds of thousands of years of history, ancient astronauts becoming human gods, and Sitchin's attempt to tie it all into biblical prophecies may wish they were on another planet.
And yet the series has legions of devoted fans who have been waiting to learn if the Annunaki are coming back and, if so, when.
Zecharia Sitchin notes that it's hard to determine where to start the countdown to the end days, which may be tied to the Aununnaki's reappearance. It might come in 2012, you never know.

@Rogue-Dingo: Very true, it is frustrating that the hard evidence is not presented. I feel that Sitchin makes all the pieces of the puzzle of man's origins fit together very nicely, but it would be better if the tablets that the stories were taken from were referenced correctly. I still feel that much of what he proposes is likely to be correct, but I would like more evidence of this. Maybe others need to follow in his footsteps and prove or disprove things.
Rogue-Dingo on January 13, 2013:
@TonyPayne: Hi, and thanks for getting back to me. Perhaps I should have elaborated a little more in my initial post. I don't necessarily have any major issues with 'all' of Mr Sitchens theories from an overall perspective, just from a scholarly perspective. Indeed, he made some outrageous claims in his books and in his interviews, but unfortunately he never once cited any text sources for these claims - that is the problem as far as I'm concerned. Each and every cuneiform tablet that has been unearthed and translated in Iraq has been meticulously numbered and categorized for current study and future research, yet Mr Sitchen never once cited by number or catalogue reference any of these tablets in any of his translations?? Because he never did this, readers of his books have no choice to but to take what he is saying on face value, and from a scholastic perspective this is just not good enough and Mr Sitchen knew it too, which is why he went to great pains to avoid academic confrontation with his critics. Carl Sagan once said - "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence"..Indeed they do! We can postulate ideas and speculate theories, but in the end, without the empirical evidence on the ground to back those claims and theories, then that's all they are and that's all they will remain. My first Lens will be ready in a few days and I invite you to look out for it. I agree, there are many things about Mesopotamian culture and lore that are very mysterious and can be interpreted in many ways and I shall be writing about some of these things in my own work. Once again, I don't discount all of Mr Sitchen's theories altogether, just his means to and end. Whilst I credit him as one whom has contributed significantly to opening the doors to alternative research in this field, he has also hurt us all very badly in the process by making the claims he made without showing the empirical evidence for those claims...RD
Tony Payne (author) from Southampton, UK on January 13, 2013:
@Rogue-Dingo: Thanks for the detailed comment RD. I know that Sitchin's theories are far-fetehed in some ways, but they do in my opinion have many pieces of the puzzle falling into place. Recent discoveries seem to point to ancient peoples knowing more about the world than we have assumed in the past, for example Egyptians voyaging to South America, and I still believe that the worldwide descriptions of super-weapons and flying machines points to higher technologies and more advanced civilizations the further back you go in time. I wish we could find the truth.
Rogue-Dingo on January 13, 2013:
Congratulations on your star and the work you have done in creating this lens. I am new to Squidoo (today actually lol) and I too have a very keen interest in Ancient Mespopotamian history as well as ancient Egyptian culture also. For the record I am not a 'Sitchenite' for a myriad of reasons too long winded to go into on here, but as you are a believer of Mr Sitchen and his works, then I am sure that you probably know the reasons as to why I am not.
My own indepth research of Mesopotamian and Ancient Egyptian history has led me to very different conclusions that can be explained purely in terrestrial terms, albeit with a cloak of esotericism both implied and actual. I invite you to view my profile and add me as a contact (if one can do that on here?) and perhaps we can exchange some ideas and theories regarding Ancient Mesopotamian history and lore..Cheers, RD..

Tony Payne (author) from Southampton, UK on October 04, 2012:
@Jason Sositko: It really is a paradox isn't it. Even if you believe in a single magical mysterious being called "God", who created them?
For real doubters as to these theories, I recommend opening the Bible at the very beginning, and reading "There were giants on the earth in those days", and also "God said let us create man in our image". If you can deal with that, much of what Sitchin writes falls into place and seems logical.
flycatcherrr on September 27, 2012:
This is fascinating. Sitchin and his works are new to me, although now you've mentioned Chariots of the Gods I do recall reading that, lo these many years ago, and really enjoying the discussions it provoked. You've convinced me to give some of Zecharia Sitchin's books a go.
Jason Sositko on September 27, 2012:
I have always been intrigued by the thought of an Earth God actually being Alien colonists, but again, who made them? and who made them and so on. Who pulled the trigger on the supposed big bang? this is the paradox to end all paradoxes I believe, I suppose that the absence of an answer is the essence of faith its self.
Tony Payne (author) from Southampton, UK on September 24, 2012:
@AlexanderTurner: It was Erik Von Daniken's "Chariots Of The Gods" that first got me interested in Ancient Astronauts and Atlantis etc, but while Daniken tends to provide lots of unexplained mysteries, Sitchin puts all the pieces together and completes the puzzle for me. It's certainly fascinating.

@ajgodinho: Thanks AJ. This is definitely a fascinating subject, there are definitely a lot of things from our most ancient past that can't be explained, but if you apply the theory that there were advanced civilizations before mankind came along, and indeed there are written texts that describe this, then the pieces all fall into place.

Tony Payne (author) from Southampton, UK on March 02, 2012:
@WeCarryThePower: I think there are two reasons, firstly to make Sitchin's works more mainstream would completely undemine all the religions in the world, since "God" ceases to be some mythical creator of the universe and instead a number of colonists who landed on Earth from another planet. Secondly, I don't think that most people are ready to believe that we are the product of alien cloning experiments. I do hope that there are people following in Sitchin's footsteps and maybe one day soon there will be proof that his theories are correct, or not.
WeCarryThePower on March 01, 2012:
Excellent lens ! Really enjoyed reading your superb work here. Sitchin was a legend in my opinion. It's baffling to me that historians generally discount the amazing research, and actual proof that he presented to the world. I also wonder why reference to the Nephilim in the books of Genesis, and Exodus are mainly ignored. Apparently this is part of our history, but the ego of modern day man will not accept it.

Edutopia on January 26, 2012:
Interesting lens with a great layout for the large amount of information you have. As for the actual content though, I find that Sitchin falls victim to literalism and in his zeal to focus on just the body of work from the Mediterranean civilizations he fails to incorporate contemporary texts from different regions of the world.
jimmyworldstar on January 25, 2012:
I've heard of him and his work, but I doubt a lot of the things he says. How come very few other reputable scientists support him or his findings? Until we make a proven connection that ancient aliens landed on Earth and guided the people here, there's no real credit to his theories.

Chazz from New York on January 14, 2012:
This is a fascinating read! Blessings.

Nice to see this in the top tier. I stopped by to refresh my angle blessing on here! :)
hlkljgk from Western Mass on January 11, 2012:
fascinating lens. you've put a lot of work into it, and it shows. thanks for the feature. :)

Could be / as Ruthi says anything is possible and we truly do not know much about the past
Ruthi on January 01, 2012:
Truth be told - anything is possible! And Sitchin has, as you say, gone on to find the truth. Excellent and thought-provoking lens on Sitchin and the mysteries of the gods. Blessings.

Fantastic lens, I think you got every bit of biographical info out there on Stichin. I am a long time fan of his and I was sadden that he is not able to contribute with new info anymore. I haven't seen anyone step up to the plate of what he has accomplished since his passing, connecting the dots and having the knowledge to connect those dots will be missed. Fantastic lens, well laid out and informative

I hope we have the privilege of seeing incontrovertible evidence for many of these probable theories during our lifetimes. Fascinating reading. Great lens.

So many things are yet to be explained...thanks!

I loved to listen to him on the Art Bell show.
WriterJanis2 on November 14, 2011:
I love unraveling ancient mysteries. I think Sitchin puts forth some valuable information that should at least be considered. At least he helps explain the so-called missing link and why mankind evolved so quickly.
Zut Moon on November 03, 2011:
Holy Moses or should I say Holy Aliens !!! What a pile of videos and links - gonna take me till the end of the year to get through LOL. I've book marked it !!!
I imagine he has hit a lot of truths in his theories but, like with many things, not 100%^ accurate but I do agree that religions like to debunk these theories as it is a threat to their own organizations and control of the populace. Nice lens.
KingLobster LM on November 02, 2011:
I had no idea this man existed before this lens. It looks like I have some research to do. Nice lens.
andreaberrios lm on September 30, 2011:
I just love everything about this man.. I read Chariots of the Gods (I actually own this boo) and I can not put it down. Very interesting topic!! I also love watching Ancient Aliens on History channel! Great lens.
Nancy Carol Brown Hardin from Las Vegas, NV on September 23, 2011:
I'm also one of those who began to be fascinated by these and other mysteries by reading Von Daniken's Chariot of the Gods, may years ago. Since then, I've read and watched more and more stories on this. It may sound cracked, but I believe we came from space, kind of like colonists. I don't quite know where that theory leads, but I'm still open-minded enough to learn. I will investigate Zecharia Sitchin and The Earth Chronicles, because it sounds as though there may be some answers found there. Thanks for sharing a great lens.
CruiseReady from East Central Florida on September 22, 2011:
hmmm ... sounds like this fellow did a LOT of research and study in developing his theory about the Annunaki. whether you would eventually buy into his story or not, it sounds like it might make for interesting reading.
grannysage on September 21, 2011:
Very interesting and thought provoking. I am always open to alternative history theories. So much has been lost and rewritten. I haven't read much of Sitchen, but have read Lawrence Gardner who also discusses the Annunaki. I'm not sure whether to believe any of this but I keep an open mind. The world is full of infinite possibilities.
oceanfaerygoddess on August 21, 2011:
Well there's a funny thing, have just been reading about Sitchin, and I come over here to find a lens of yours to read and find this one! Fascinating read, really enjoyed it!
WhiteOak50 on August 12, 2011:
After finally catching up with the Angel School Bus, I am fluttering around Legends & Folklore-ville to drop off some Blessings. Just wanted you to know I am here because your page caught my attention. Leaving you with a *Blessing* for doing such a great job on this page.

Hi Tony, was following Robert's trail to your lens! I started reading Daniken when I was 16 and after close to 30 years in my quest (since then) and having come across 'vimanas' from the Vedas and the Sumerian and Mayan / Peruvian encounters with "Aliens" - would like to place a poser! This body of ours is made of clay! There is a spirit which moves this being! This clay pot has but three dimensions! How many more dimensions are yet to be discovered for the Spirit being which is 'yet' to be discovered!? (:
sousababy on July 22, 2011:
I think we will always be searching for these answers - but may never find it. Intelligent design (the wedge movement) interested me very much. Over twenty years ago I read extensively about the accuracy of the Mayan calendar. This is an excellent lens and I really enjoy how comprehensively you presented your work. Glad to see a purple star on this one. Sincerely, Rose
gypsyman27 lm on July 22, 2011:
Thanks for sharing all of this information regarding Zecharia Sitchin, I find the subject fascinating and obviously Mr Sitchin felt strongly about his works and I would have to agree with a lot of his assumptions. I actually have a lens that explores the ancient astronaut theory briefly. Great lens, very good work. See you around the galaxy...
jeffersonline on June 22, 2011:
Poddys, from one dedicated 'Sitchener' to another, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to put this labour of love together. Awesome lens with awesome content. Thanks for all your hard work here.

Genetic manipulation by advanced humanoids makes sense. Though I believe in a Creator of the Universe.
Positivevibestechnician on February 13, 2011:
i never would have thought to find something here on sitchin i love his writings 13th planet was a great one. thanks for sharing this

Awesome lens. Nibiru is coming!

Tonie Cook from USA on November 02, 2010:
Fantastic lens! Wonderful information and reference links. Thank you for sharing.

@RinchenChodron: Thanks. I have a lot of respect for this man and his theories, and I believe that he is right.
Tony Payne (author) from Southampton, UK on October 29, 2010:
@ArtByLinda: I agree. I wonder now with his passing if there are others who will follow in his footsteps and research further. It's such a shame that there are probably many more artifacts waiting to be discovered and added to the saga, but in Iraq. Who knows what has already been lost forever.
Tony Payne (author) from Southampton, UK on October 29, 2010:
@capriliz lm: Anything is possible, definitely, and we shouldn't necessarily believe everything that we are taught either.
Tony Payne (author) from Southampton, UK on October 29, 2010:
@Sensitive Fern: Erik Von Daniken who wrote the Chariots Of The Gods books just highlighted some unrelated ancient places and objects that we can't easily explain. Zecharia Sitchin takes the story so much further, and makes everything seem perfectly logical.
Tony Payne (author) from Southampton, UK on October 29, 2010:
@piedromolinero: That's what I was wondering. His theories all make sense, if you think about all the anomalies in our history. Everything falls into place if you assume that the stories of the Anunnaki are true. It's tough to swallow for so many people though, especially those who are deeply religious. It's definitely more likely that the Sumerians took the effort to write down their history, than just some fanciful ancient science fantasy series.
piedromolinero on October 29, 2010:
RIP Zecharia Sitchin. Probably he is now at some place where he will be able to prove or disapprove his theories.
Sensitive Fern on October 28, 2010:
Fascinating stuff! I remember going to see the Chariot of the Gods movie when I was a kid but I don't think I ever heard of Zecharia Sitchen. I'm intrigued.
