mit wenig Lesewiderstand geschrieben, liest sich gut obwohl zwischendurch schon recht langatmig. Ignoriert einige Fakten - leider.
Z.B. landwirtschaftliche Nutzpflanzen wurden an verschiedenen Orten gezüchtet, z.B. Mais und Kartoffeln in Südamerika.Nicht bloß von den Sumerern.
Macht nix. Dieses Jahr soll der 12. Planet wieder auftauchen. Dann sehn wir's ja.

This is the first book of "The Earth chronicles" series in which Zecharia Sitchin tears the man's origins apart and puts them in a whole new perspective. Author is one of the top scholars in field of the ancient languages and offers his vision of extraterrestrial origins of Homo sapiens on Earth. His main point is that all ancient documents are written on the base of observations and facts and should not be taken symbolically. As we presume today, civilization has originated in Mesopotamia, but no one can really explain the fact that right from its start it was highly developed, that it blossomed virtually out of nothing and created incredible works, which we are not capable of performing even to date. Sitchin quotes many ancient documents, mostly Bible and Epic of Gilgamesh (which he read in Akkadian and Babylonian) and offers more sensful translation of these scripts. He also explains discrepancies of single/plural God in the Genesis and shows how the extraterrestrial wisdom has spread over other countries (Egypt, Greece, India...). Gods came from planet Nibiru (or Marduk in Babylonian), which has been created for special task: to bring order in our, at the time overcrowded solar system. After crushing Tiamat and forming Earth and Moon, planet Nibiru went on his comet-like journey, returning to the Sun in every 3,600 years. Life has formed and developed on it and some 450,000 years ago they noticed that our planet has some resources they desired. So they established settlements on Earth in range of Mesopotamia, because it is very rich with fuels, needed for space travelling. Man was created with genetic manipulation after their image (they mixed hominid's genes with their own in order to obtain higher IQ level) to do the mining work for them. In sitchin's light some very confusing and presumably highly imaginative texts suddenly seem very realistic. He explains why such monumental works like ziggurats, pyramids and other vast temples have been made and for what purposes they were used. The most monumental event in Earth's "modern" history was the Deluge, the Great Flood, found written and known everywhere around the world. Sitchin explains how Gods knew that it's going to happen and why Noah (or Ziusudra or Utnapishtim) was chosen to survive. After the waters flew away (the Deluge was coincided with the end of the Ice Age and the gravital pull of the passing Nibiru, therefore it lasted for a year), Gods gave many different technologies to people and they spread all over the Earth again. The book is very well written - if you don't accept the theory inside, it's still interesting piece of science fiction for you. I think Sitchin knows what he writes and the evidence written inside is sure enough for me. I already look forward what volume 2 will bring. And - if you disagree, maybe you know better?

Sitchin's books are always a pleasure to read with the author's engaging style and bold assertions, but the most obvious hole in his theory is that there is NO evidence of any cataclysm or upheaval in 100BC when Nibiru was supposed to have passed the earth according to the author's own chronology. He claims it comes by every 3600 years and that it caused the great upheavals and the end of the last ice age in about 10 000 BC. Also, he makes stupid statements about linguistic affinity and does not work like a scientist here. It is easy enough to find similarities between a language in Eurasia and one in the Americas, but one must put this in context, in a broader taxonomy (classification structure). There are similarities between Sumerian and Nostratic (Eurasiatic) the parent family of Indo-European and many others, and also (other)similarities between Sumerian and Dene-Caucasic. For these, I recommend the work of professional linguists like Alan Bomhard, Joseph Greenberg and Merritt Ruhlen. Sitchin takes many liberties but at least he does it in an entertaining way.

If you have ever been one to see the inconsistancies in religious, educational and popular media contentions -- this book is for you. In this book you will be enlightened to more ancient "truths" that predate the Bible and other recorded history. The author is a tremendous interpreter of ancient texts and has a convincing logic as to the evolution/relationships of terminolgy and words.
The book is all about the origins of our the universe, the earth, mankind and mankinds history as known/taught by the most anciently known culture of mankind -- the Sumerians.
The Sumerians clearly had equal and even superior knowledge to present day. According to Sumerians, there were 12 celestial Bodies in our solar system -- counting the sun and the moon. Thus, the name of the book, the 12th Planet (or 10th planet if you do not count the sun and moon).
This planet is said to be huge and has a 3,600 year orbit around the sun. It is populated by our alien ancestors/progenators. If you keep up with the science news, you know that scientists have recently discovered a very large moving dark object in our solar system. I belive it is the 12th planet once again approaching our area in it's long orbit.

This is yet another book that discounts the enterprise, intelligence, and creativity of the ancients. In its place, Sitchin recreates Sumerian history to owe its accomplishments to some far-off, implausible world that certainly has no basis in fact--archaeological, astronomical, or otherwise. It's also interesting to note that these theories of ancient astronauts, as purveyed by von Daeniken, Hoagland, Hancock, et al., all come from a time when humanity is beginning to develop space travel. Before space travel was theorized or even novelized, the idea of astronauts from other worlds was virtually non-existent. The reason for such thinking may be all too obvious: whatever the era, societies tend to view themselves as the pinnacle of cultural achievement, and often use their own standard to interepret and evaluate past cultures. We can only understand a past culture by the actual physical evidence it provides, and it seems the challenge of archaeology lies not in spinning fanciful tales, but in divulging from the data what actually existed.

Of all the scientists to come from behind the Iron Curtain, Sitchin is the most fascinating. His ideas reflect the need most Eastern Europeans and Asians have, in my opinion, to attribute greatness to ancestors who may or may not merit such attention.
Nevertheless, Sitchin does exhibit brilliance in lateral thinking. He takes information and evidence available and re-interprets it in ways never before considered. His interpretations give us a starting point from which to launch questions against the established dogma of history.
History is the target of this book, of that there is no doubt. Sitchin's contention that all history is skewed not just toward the victors but out of time altogether is a marvelous example of a mind ready to change. If you need help finding out why things don't seem quite right when reading about ancient history, this book will prove an invaluable resource.

Sitchin is my new god! Well, one of them anyway. This book is not the easiest read in the world because of the amount of material covered. Many of his contentions are well supported, some are not. For his theories to be plausible, a considerable deviation from conventional wisdom is necessary. That said, the story of our planet is probably told more accurately than the bible and more completely than modern science ever will.
I heartily applaud Sitchin for his undying dedication to the presentation not just of his own work, but the many others who have come befor him. It will take more time and research for his work to be fully appreciated by the masses. I do not envy him as a bringer of truth in our current, arrogant, "high tech" society.
Since this work was completed over twenty years ago, further evidence has been uncovered that supports Sitchin's theories. In our lifetime the ultimate proof of the validity of this book should appear to our astronomers, the twelfth planet itself! (Sumerian records count the sun and moon as planets) I would recommend reading the old testament of the bible first, then reading this book, which precedes it with many very similar stories. While the question of evolution versus creation is not answered, some of the many holes in each position are filled or explained. The answer it would appear, will not be found on earth.

Mr. Sitchin does more than point out an intelligent alternative to the impossible teachings that have been thrust upon us since childhood. His information explains and corroborates ideas expressed in ancient and religious texts throughout our world in terms and interpretations that at first seem possible, then plausible, but finally, probable.
Yes, it's a bit hard to swallow the 'spaceman' theories, but give his evidence a chance. It is certainly no more incredible than many of the traditional ideas we've been taught over the years. If you feel a strong literal belief in some of those well-established dogmas, or are offended when people contradict the typical interpretations of today's largely Judeo-Christian society, you may feel that Sitchin's material shows anti-religious leanings or even approaches blasphemy. To the open minded individual, though, this book will expose an entirely possible origin of life on this planet (both all life and later, human life), more intellectually explained than the bible stories we've been asked to believe, but in fact in complete agreement with them!
If nothing else, Sitchin shows us a concise view of the evolution of myths, religions and 'sacred' teachings on this planet, and shows direct evidence that they mostly boil back to the same events. Even if you don't buy the whole Ancient Astronaut bit, the historical perspective is fascinating. And if you DO buy it (I did within the first 20 pages), it opens up a whole new interpretation of old and current events.
I'd also recommend another book, William Bramley's The Gods of Eden (personal rating: 3.5 stars). It begins with the basic Ancient Astronauts premise, but opines about the motives of the supposed extraterrestrial race. In The 12th Planet, though Sitchin tries to stay objective regarding the intent of the Annunaki, he does show evidence of mixed feelings among the community of "Gods" about the welfare of humanity. He even states that Man was, in fact, created by the Annunaki specifically to be a slave race, literally owned by the ETs. Mr. Bramley shows some impressive research of his own in The Gods of Eden, but suggests an even darker, more conspiratorial extraterrestrial race that he believes could be the cause of most or all human warfare, famine and discontent on this planet. Bramley's book also puts a very interesting slant on many current events, and suggests the possible methods these ETs use to direct and control human activity even today.
A bit sinister, but in the spirit of lively discussion, and for another phenomenal historical perspective, read The Gods of Eden (but only AFTER you read The 12th Planet)! Chew on these suppositions long and well before swallowing, but a little enlightenment goes a long way toward satisfaction!
