Summary

Over the years, startling evidence has been unearthed, challenging established notions of the origins of Earth and life on it and suggesting the existence of a superior race of beings who once inhabited our world.

The product of 30 years of intensive research, The 12th Planet is the first book in Zecharia Sitchin's prophetic Earth Chronicles series - a revolutionary body of work that offers indisputable documentary proof of humanity's extraterrestrial forefathers. Travelers from the stars, they arrived eons ago, and planted the genetic seed that would ultimately blossom into a remarkable species...called Man.

The 12th Planet brings to life the Sumerian civilization, presenting millennia-old evidence of the existence of Nibiru, the home planet of the Anunnaki, and of the landings of the Anunnaki on Earth every 3,600 years, and reveals a complete history of the solar system as told by these early visitors from another planet.

Worthwhile read

An interesting take on ancient civilisation history albeit with much assumption. With that in mind you need to read with some salt. However, if even 25% of this account is true it would smash down our ideas of ancestry and history. .

I tend to agree with Graham Hancock’s work on ancient civilisations (read Fingerprints of the Gods) and importantly the evidence presented on the asteroid that ended the last ice age some 13000 years ago. In contrast, Sitchin’s assumption of an Antarctic ice shelf detachment is thus incorrect, but this does not weaken the narrative, Hancock’s presentation actually strengthens it. Moreover, Hancock’s work concentrates on the near ancient, not far ancient civilisations. . .

It is clear, in general, that what we’ve been told about our past, our civilisations, and place in this world, is largely a lie. There is so much evidence out there for those willing to look beyond the government based narratives that there is far far more going on and has gone on than we have been led to believe. Reading works such as this and Hancock’s help in opening ones eyes to the real world around us.

On to the next book!

Narrator difficult to follow

The book although well researched and very thorough, was ludicrously difficult to follow. The narrator has the most dreary and dull voice.
Because the author has tried to cram so much in, I found there to be too much mention of various gods and other historical names far too often, which just added to the confusion.
All that combined I was thoroughly un-entertained and really didn’t want to carry on and finish the book.
There’s masses of potential here, but in its current state is very unfriendly to the listener and reader!!!!
Only buy if you’re up with you ancient mythology to a scholarly level, otherwise don’t bother.

Masterfully researched interpretation of genesis

Fascinating insight into mankind's origin story, extremely well researched and the resulting conclusions remarkably astute

Hmmm.....

Very good at names. Names for gods, names for biblical figures, names for spans of time, alternate names. Lots of names, few convincing ideas.

Tough listen to start with

Many names make the beginning of this book really painful but, it is a very scholarly work not, a simple fictional story. I found the connections with the bible stunning and it really held my attention. Listening to this is often like reading a text book, so be warned.

Good after the first half!

If you can make it through the first 5 1/2 hours if the book, it gets interesting. He names EVERY single mythological name in human history. The last half is good.

Welp

Certainly gives us a few things to ponder! Remember class, information is always neutral.

If it opens you up, carry right along. If it shuts you down, toss it over your shoulder and don't look back

1st off, I want to be a narrator
2nd, fascinating read. even recent discoveries and theories (2 come to mind, I'm sure alot of ppl are familiar with) that totally support his translations. every transition, comparison or tie in was super smooth and logical.

Insightful and Interesting

Awesome details of possible human origins. Years of research condensed into a wonderful story of creation not taught by the mainstream. Very thought provoking to say the least and an open mind is required, yet facts are presented. We can not deny the artifacts left behind by advanced ancient civilizations. There's more to know then what we have been taught.

This Book is Absolutely Mind Blowing!

The compilation of religous text mixed with elder civilation text is Amazing. The dot connection between the 2 as well mythos throughout the histories of the world is brilliant and makes the mind wander. I highly recommend this book and this series

This is an incredible, life changing, book!

Finally, someone has written a book that explains the confusing story of the rapid rise of mankind. It logically explains how our past history contains such astounding feats...that simply cannot be attributed to primitive cave dwellers. In addition it explains the history of God and the birth of religion. Just fantastic!

religon before religon

What an amazing story birthed from tge ancient text of a culture that knew more then out modern day science has discovered. Unveils stories from every religon in great detail that originates before the church existed. Guaranteed to provide an epiphany at least once.
