The term "Nibiru" comes from the Sumerian cuneiform stone tablets and writings that are 6,000 years old. The term Nibiru means "Planet of the crossing". The Sumerian culture is the first recorded civilization on earth, then called
Sumeria, today's Iraq. It has been known throughout ensuing time periods as Sumer, Mesopotamia, and Babylon, all the same location for where earth's first culture shows up on earth. The Sumerian Culture is the oldest known civilization we know of based on the artifacts and monuments that still remain.
The term "Planet X" refers to the search for another planet beyond Pluto through mainstream scientific efforts. The space probes sent out by NASA, mainly
Voyager and Pioneer, detected perturbations in the outer planets which suggested that there is still another planet, or heavenly body beyond Pluto that is affecting the orbits of the outer planets. Some of the latest public knowledge about this research done by NASA was conducted by Dr. Richard Harrington, who was the lead astronomer at NASA's Naval Observatory in Washington. (now deceased)
Zecharia Sitchin, the first scholar to uncover the Sumerian information, has not stated publicly when he feels Nibiru will return. Based on Sitchin's interpretations of the Sumerian information, Nibiru does not always effect our planet with its inner passage between Jupiter and Mars. Nibiru has been orbiting our sun for 4.7 billion years or so. Since Nibiru's orbit is 3,600 years, it has already made millions of orbits around our sun.
Zecharia Sitchin was born in Russia and raised in Palestine, where he acquired a profound knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, the Old Testament, and the history and archeology of the Near East. He is one of the few scholars who is able to read and understand Sumerian, which is the oldest language currently known to man.
PLANET X's ORBIT AND THE SUMERIAN CULTURE
To illustrate some of the amazing knowledge the Sumerians possessed 6,000 years ago, I will use a reference to something that to this day is still being taught in our high schools and colleges. When the Earth was much older, we can determine the land mass was once a clumped together mass at one point in time. But due to the process known as "Continental Drift" the land clump was slowly pulled apart to where the current land masses are today.
We can see clear proof that the continents were all once connected by simply looking at a map of the Earth and seeing how the pieces fit. That would only mean that at one time, Earth was basically half a planet.
If you were to siphon all the water off of Earth's surface, you would see a large gaping hole where the ocean has filled in this tremendous missing part of the Earth. Where did it go? Why is Earth only half a planet? The diagrams shown here are descriptions from the Sumerians explaining how our Earth came to be... They state that the satellites of Planet X (Nibiru) as they called it, collided with our primitive Earth in the past, creating the asteroid belt and forever becoming another member of our solar system in a comet like 3,600 year orbit around the sun.
"PANGEA" EXPLAINED BY THE SUMERIANS 6,000 YEARS AGO
Planet X being pulled into our solar system by the outer planets gravitational pull.
Planet X's orbit around our sun, as told to us by the Sumerians in their 7 tablets of creation.
In February, 1971, the United States launched Pioneer 10. Pioneer 10 scientists attached to it an engraved aluminum plaque. It attempts to tell whoever might find the plaque that Mankind is male and female, etc., and that (Pioneer 10) is from the 3rd planet of this Sun. Our astronomy is geared to the notion that Earth is the 3rd planet, which indeed it is if one begins the count from the center of our system, the Sun. But to someone nearing our solar system from the outside, the 1st planet to be encountered would be Pluto, the 2nd Neptune, the 3rd Uranus, the 4th Saturn, the 5th Jupiter, the 6th Mars .. and the Earth would be 7th.
The (12th) Planet's periodic appearance and disappearance from Earth's view confirms the assumption of its permanence in solar orbit. In this it acts like many comets. If so, why are our astronomers not aware of the existence of this planet? The fact is that even an orbit half as long as the lower figure for (the comet) Kohoutek, (every 7,500 years), would take the 12th Planet about 6 times farther away from us than Pluto — a distance at which such a planet would not be visible from Earth. In fact, the known planets beyond Saturn were first discovered not visually but mathematically.
Here is a cylinder seal from the Berlin Museum of Ancient Near East. When the central god or celestial body is enlarged, we can see that it depicts a large, ray-emitting star surrounded by eleven heavenly bodies-planets. These in turn, rest on a chain of twenty-four smaller globes. Is it only a coincidence that the number of all the "moons" or satellites, of the planets in our solar system (astronomers exclude those of ten miles or less in diameter) is also exactly twenty-four?
Now there is, of coarse, a catch to claiming that these depictions — of a Sun and eleven planets — represent our solar system, for the scholars tell us that the planetary system of which Earth is a part comprises the Sun, Earth and Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. This adds up to the Sun and only ten planets (when the Moon is counted as one).
But that is not what the Sumerians said. They claimed that our system was made up of the Sun and eleven planets (counting the moon), and held steadfastly to the opinion that, in addition to the planets known to us today, there has been a 12th member of the solar system — the home planet of the Nefilim (Annunaki). What we now call Planet X.
Wherever the archaeologists uncovered the remains of Near Eastern peoples, the symbol of the Winged Globe was conspicuous, dominating temples and palaces, carved on rocks, etched on cylinder seals, painted on walls. It accompanied kings and priests, stood above their thrones, "hovered" above them in battle sciences, was etched into their chariots.
Central to the religious beliefs and astronomy of the ancient world remained within the solar system and that its grand orbit returned it periodically to the Earth's vicinity. The pictograph sign for the 12th planet the "Planet of the Crossing", was a cross.
This cuneiform sign, ,Which also meant "Divine" also evolved in the Semitic languages to the letter tav, which meant "the sign".
The ancient peoples not only expected the periodic arrival of the 12th planet, but also charted its advancing course. Many of the Sumerian Cylinder seals describe a planet whose orbit takes it far beyond Pluto, but also comes in from the SOUTH and moves in a clockwise direction — according to the Mesopotamian data.
Mesopotamian texts exalt the planet's radiance and suggested that it could be seen even at daytime: "visible at sunrise, disappearing from view at sunset." A cylinder seal found at Nippur, depicts a group of plowmen looking up with awe as the 12th planet (depicted as the Cross) is visible in the skies. (image below)
The Mesopotamian texts spoke of the planet's periodic appearance as an anticipated, predictable, and observable event. The nearing planet, however, was expected to cause rains and flooding, as its strong gravitational effects have been known to do. Like the Mesopotamian savants, the Hebrew prophets considered the time of the planet's approaching Earth and becoming visible to Mankind as ushering in a new era.
Many of the Cylinder seals describe the movements of the planet and the three crucial points at which its appearance can be observed and charted from earth. The first opportunity to observe the 12th planet as its orbit brings it back to the Earth's vicinity, then, was when it aligned with Mercury (Point A) — by our calculations, at an angle of 30 degrees to the imaginary celestial axis of Sun-Earth-perigee. Coming closer to the Earth and thus appearing to "rise" farther in the Earth's skies (another 30 degrees), the planet crossed the orbit of Jupiter at (Point B). Finally arriving at the place where Planet X originally Hit the primitive Earth (Point C).
The actual expectations for the return of the Kingdom of Heaven, was thus based on the actual experiences of Earth's people: their witnessing the periodic return of the 12th planet.
The planet's periodic appearance and disappearance from Earth's view confirms the assumptions of its permanence in the solar orbit. In this it acts like many comets.
The Mesopotamian and biblical sources present strong evidence that the orbital period of the 12th Planet is 3,600 years. The number 3,600 was written in Sumerian as a large circle. The epithet for the planet, shar, also meant "a perfect circle" or "a completed cycle". It also meant the number 3,600. The identity of the three terms — planet/orbit/3,600 — could not be a mere coincidence. The reign periods (a Sumerian text) are also perfect multiples of the 3,600 year shar. The conclusion that suggests itself is that these shars of rulership were related to the orbital period shar, 3,600 years.
All the people of the ancient world considered the periodic nearing of the 12th Planet as a sign of great upheavals, great changes, and new eras. The Mesopotamian texts spoke of the planet's periodic appearance as an anticipated, predictable, and observable event. "The great planet, at his appearance dark red." The day itself was described by the Old Testament as a time of rains, inundations, and earthquakes.
If we think of the Old Testament (Hebrew) based biblical passages as referring, like their Mesopotamian counterparts, to the passage in Earth's vicinity of a large planet with a strong gravitational pull, the words of Isaiah can be plainly understood. "From a far away land they came, from the end-point of Heaven do the Lord and his weapons of wrath come to destroy the whole Earth. Therefore will I agitate the Heaven and Earth shall be shaken out of its place. When the Lord of Hosts shall be crossing, the day of his burning wrath."
The scientific evidence proving what was written down in ancient times is increasing very rapidly.
