“Reveals the signature of extraterrestrial gods written in stone.” (Voice of Astara)
From the Inside Flap
The Earth Chronicles series is based on the premise that mythology is the depository of ancient recollections, that the Bible should be read literally as a historic-scientific document, and that ancient civilizations were the product of knowledge brought to Earth by the Anunnaki--“Those who from Heaven to Earth came.”
Complementing each other and serving to bring the saga of gods and humans on Earth ever closer to our time, each book of the series looks at this awesome tale from a different perspective.
The 12th Planet, the first book of the series, brings to life the Sumerian civilization and presents millennia-old evidence of the existence of Nibiru, the home planet of the Anunnaki, and the landings of the Anunnaki on Earth every 3,600 years.
The Stairway to Heaven, the second book, incorporates ancient Egyptian evidence to show that the gateway between the mortal and the divine was a spaceport in the Sinai Peninsula, with the Giza pyramids and the Sphinx serving as beacons for the landings.
The Wars of Gods and Men, the third book, additionally embraces Canaanite, Hittite, and Hindu sources to include in these investigations the incidents of the Tower of Babel and the upheaval of Sodom and Gomorrah, concluding that nuclear weapons were used on Earth 4,000 years ago.
The Lost Realms, the fourth book, transports readers to the pre-Columbian civilizations and ancient empires of the Americas, revealing hitherto unrecognized golden links between ancient Near Eastern civilizations and the "cities of the gods" of the Olmecs, Mayas, Aztecs, and Incas.
When Time Began, the fifth book, explores ancient knowledge of Heaven and Earth and the interwoven cycles that gave rise to astronomy, the zodiac and astrology, and stone calendars such as Stonehenge, revealing the secret of New Ages past and future.
And The Cosmic Code, the sixth book in the series, explains how the secrets of humankind’s celestial teachers were encoded in the Bible and other sacred and hidden “books”--a cosmic code that links Earthlings to their cosmic roots.
In the years since each book was published, new scientific discoveries have provided mounting corroboration of the series’ incredible and unorthodox science-based conclusions. This accumulation of discoveries and the origins of humankind and the solar system are further discussed in the companion books Genesis Revisited and Divine Encounters. I trust that modern science will continue to confirm ancient knowledge.
Zecharia Sitchin (1920-2010) was born in Russia and grew up in Palestine, where he acquired a profound knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history and archaeology of the Near East. A graduate of the University of London with a degree in economic history, he worked as a journalist and editor for many years prior to undertaking his life’s work--The Earth Chronicles.
One of the few scholars able to read the clay tablets and interpret ancient Sumerian and Akkadian, Sitchin based The Earth Chronicles series on the texts and pictorial evidence recorded by the ancient civilizations of the Near East. His books have been widely translated, reprinted in paperback editions, converted to Braille for the blind, and featured on radio and television programs.

The age of these megaliths can be determined by our knowledge of changes in the tilt of the earth, and it shows their construction dated back thousands of years B.C. These civilizations had unheard of knowledge of astronomy and mathematics - not to mention the actual construction of these megaliths out of rocks weighing in the tons, and with precision we cannot even match today.
Similarities between these structures, including Stonehenge, and others built in the far reaches of the Earth in places like the mountains in Peru, indicate the same architect! How could that be possible unless we accept Sitchin's theories on how this advanced civilization of "gods" came here from Nibiru and gave us the information? If he's wrong, how could these different races on opposite ends of the Earth each have the skies divided into 12 arbitrary units, the Zodiac, and have practically the same symbols representing each?
The coincidences seem to keep mounting. When Divine time is reconciled to Earth time using Nibiru's orbit around earth of 3,600 years to the number of Earth years in each house of the Zodiac of 2,160 years, you get 1.6666, the golden ratio - Fibonacci numbers. And there's more. Every chapter has something new.
I know, don't tell me... Stonehenge was a burial ground. Yeah right. Just shut up and buy the book.
