Sounds like an insane creation tale, right? Not to Sitchin. He uncovered this Anunnaki myth after 30 years studying ancient Sumerian tablets.

Tsoukalos is head of Legendary Times magazine, but the company hasn’t published anything since 2008.

Giorgio, you’re awesome, but I need you to get some more writing done.

BOOK REVIEW: “The 12th Planet” by Zecharia Sitchin

The 12th Planet by Zecharia Sitchin (Amazon) (Goodreads)
  • Title: The 12th Planet
  • Author: Zecharia Sitchin
  • Publication: Inner Traditions-Bear & Company (May 1, 1991) *first published in 1976*
  • Pages: 384
  • Series: The Earth Chronicles Series
  • Genre: Ancient alien theories
  • Format: Hardcover
  • Source: Library
  • Rating: 4 out of 5  stars

The 12th Planet is one of those books that make you wonder if our myths are actually truths long forgotten and we simply call them “myths” because we have no efficient evidence to back them up. Zecharia Sitchin has studied ancient Sumerian cuneiform tablets for around thirty years before he has compiled his studies into the Earth Chronicle series. In The 12th Planet, he narrates how human civilization as we know it was created by an ancient alien race from a planet outside of our familiar solar system.  These aliens, the “anunnaki”, have come to earth and created humans in order to mine a natural resource: gold. The annunaki needed gold to restore the failing atmosphere of their home planet Nibiru. Yep, this all coming from ancient clay tablets!

Even though I am still a bit skeptical  about Sitchin’s studies, I have to admit he has done his research. I felt like I was in a classroom lecture as I was reading his book. If you’re not familiar with Sumerian mythology, this book will help you out. Sitchin doesn’t skip out on details about them. Learning about Sitchin from reading this book, he’s the kind of man who believes humans were taught by somebody not of this world in order for advanced civilizations to be developed. Humans call them “gods” but simply they may be aliens.

I’m looking forward to reading more of his works.

Have you read any of Zecharia Sitchin’s books?

Where do you think we come from?

You think aliens have made us and their DNA still remains in us?

Author Profile Tibits

  • Zecharia Sitchin was born on July 11, 1920 in Azerbajan Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR), raised in Palestine,  and died in New York City on October 9, 2010. He was ninety years old.
  • Attended the University of London studying economics
  • Worked as an editor and journalist in Israel
  • Stationed at the Allied Command in Jerusalem during WWII
  • Studied Sumerian cuneiform on his own
  • Published The 12th Planet, the first book of the Earth Chronicles series, in 1976

According to Sitchin’s official website, October 9 is “Annual Sitchin Studies” Day. I haven’t read any of his books yet but he has been mentioned numerous times in the TV series Ancient Aliens and Spirit Science’s “Human History Movie”. Basically, Sitchin believed (after studying certain Sumerian text for thirty years) humans were created by the Anunnaki, an ancient alien race from the distant planet Nibiru. They came to Earth to retrieve gold to restore their planet’s failing atmosphere. Mining gold wasn’t going to be easy by themselves so they created humans to do the work for them.

Critics had a blast ripping this theory apart.

I have requested Sitchin’s The 12th Planet from the library about a month ago. It’ll take a while since the book has to be transferred from an out-of-state library. I’m a patient girl and I have billions of other books I’m reading at the moment!

If you read The 12th Planet or any other books written by Zecharia Sitchin, please do share your experiences.  ^_^
