There Were Giants Upon the Earth: Gods, Demigods, and Human Ancestry: The Evidence of Alien DNA (Earth Chronicles)
ARCHAEOLOGY / ANCIENT MYSTERIES / GENETICS
In whose genetic image were we made?
From his first book, The 12th Planet, on, Zecharia Sitchin has asserted that the Bible’s Elohim who said, “Let us fashion The Adam in our image and after our likeness” were the gods of Sumer and Babylon--the Anunnaki who had come to Earth from their planet, Nibiru.
The Adam, he wrote, was genetically engineered by adding Anunnaki genes to those of an existing hominid, some 300,000 years ago. Then, according to the Bible, in the days before the Great Flood and thereafter too, “there were giants upon the Earth” who intermarried with Adam’s offspring, giving birth to “heroes of renown.” With meticulous detail, Sitchin shows that these were the demigods of Sumerian and Babylonian lore. The famed Mesopotamian king Gilgamesh, who claimed a right to immortality, was one of them; so was the hero of the Deluge, Noah (the Babylonian Utnapishtim).
Are we then, all of us, descended of demigods?
In this breathtaking book, Zecharia Sitchin asserts that there exists, today, physical evidence that could prove those biblical and Sumerian tales.
Proceeding step-by-step through a mass of ancient writings and artifacts, he leads the reader to “Ur of the Chaldees” and Abraham’s time, where four thousand years later archaeologists uncovered in the sacred precinct extraordinary burials unique for the wealth and opulence of artifacts they contained and scores of attendants entombed with them. Known as The Royal Tombs of Ur, they remained a baffling mystery.
Now, in this crowning oeuvre that reads like a detective story, Zecharia Sitchin reaches the stunning conclusion that the two most extraordinary tombs were the last resting place of an Anunnaki goddess and her demigod spouse and proceeds to identify them and their genealogical ancestry back to those who were first to land on Earth from Nibiru.
He then makes a sensational revelation that could provide conclusive physical evidence for alien presence on Earth in the ancient past, with an unprecedented scientific opportunity to track down the “Missing Link” in humankind’s evolution and a key to unlocking the secrets of disease, longevity, and even the ultimate mystery of life and death.
Eminent biblical scholar and internationally acclaimed author ZECHARIA SITCHIN (1920-2010) spent 60 years researching and translating Sumerian clay tablets and other ancient texts that identify the Anunnaki and their planet, Nibiru. A journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he later made his home in New York City.
Myth or Reality? The Scholarship of Zecharia Sitchin, by Kenneth Pollinger, Ph.D.
By Kenneth J. Pollinger "Ancient Knowledge" - May 24, 2010
Having read 13 prior books by Zecharia Sitchin I can attest to his superb scholarship. There Were Giants Upon the Earth, his latest, is probably his most important since he states that there are SKELETAL remains in theNatural History Museum in London which could possibly finally end the debate about whether his works are of "myth" or historical FACT. His main approach here is built around Pre-Diluvial and post-Diluval "gods, demigods and Pharaoh lists" (the List of Kings of Manethro; and also, those of Berossus), as well as the genealogical line of the Hebrew Bible. He accumulates much information about all these beings thus presented and weaves a fascinating history of their interrelationships and how they are related to: a) the beginning of creation, b) the beginning of evolution, c) the creation of Mankind, d) the Deluge, e) longevity, NOT immortality, f) and finally, how there are skeletal remains of a "Queen Puabi" and a "Prince Meskalaindug" (who are,... read more
Sitchin should win an award
By John M. - July 27, 2010
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I've read almost all of Mr. Sitchin's previous books and I am convinced that he has single-handedly solved the mystery of how and why we humans came to exist on this planet. As some other reviewers have noted, much of this book is a rehashing of the theories & evidence presented in his earlier books. I personally do not see this as a drawback because I welcomed having a nice concise summary of his theories of humanity's origin. And the climax of this book is amazing. Mr. Sitchin has done some great detective work and I only hope someone with the means & opportunity will perform the DNA testing he suggests. This book is a wonderful culmination of this great man's life-long work, and I applaud him for it.
Slightly let down
By WiffleBird "WiffleBird" - May 26, 2010
While I am a true fan of Zecharia Sitchen and a die-hard supporter of the alien intervention theory, I am somewhat disappointed in this, his latest work. Like too many of his other books, this one is 90% a re-hash of previously published information. While presented very well, it is frustrating to have to read the same basic summary of his previous works before getting to the "meat" of the matter, his newest research. I fully understand the need for each book in the series to be able to stand on its own. However, for many of us who have been waiting eagerly for this release it is a bit frustrating to once again see the same old format for the umpteenth time. Having said all that, I still highly recommend this book for anyone seriously interested in the AIT. The new material is fascinating and it would indeed be exciting to pursue Professor Sitchen's theories through to doing a DNA analysis of the specimens singled out.
