Product description

- Was Adam the first test-tube baby? - Did nuclear fission destroy Sodom and Gomorrah? - How were the ancients able to accurately describe details about our solar system that are only now being revealed by deep space probes? The awesome answers are all here, in this important companion volume to "The Earth Chronicles" series. Having presented evidence of an additional planet as well as voluminous information about the other planets in our solar system, Zecharia Sitchin now shows how the discoveries of modern astrophysics, astronomy, and genetics exactly parallel what has "already" been revealed in ancient texts regarding the "mysteries" of alchemy and the creation of life. "Genesis Revisited" is a mind-boggling revelation sure to overturn current theories about the origins of humankind and the solar system.

Author information

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. He was distinguished by his ability to translate and interpret ancient Sumerian and other ancient texts. 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."

Review quote

"Sitchin's works are outstandingly different from all others that present this central theme. His linguistic skills in the languages of antiquity and his pursuit of the earliest available texts and artifacts make possible the wealth of photographs and line drawings appearing in his books from tablets, monuments, murals, pottery, and seals."

Back cover copy

ARCHAEOLOGY / HISTORY A Companion volume to The Earth Chronicles series. Special large-format edition, lavishly illustrated with maps, diagrams, and photographs In Genesis Revisited, author Zecharia Sitchin asks, "Is it possible that Mankind has come out of the Dark Ages and the Middle Ages, reached the Age of Enlightenment, experienced the Industrial Revolution, and entered the era of high-tech, genetic engineering and space flight--only to catch up with ancient knowledge?" Sitchin believes that the Book of Genesis and key Sumerian and ancient Egyptian sources reflect the highest levels of scientific knowledge, and he posits that what we are discovering today about Earth and the heavens is, in fact, a rediscovery of what had been known to a much earlier civilization. Genesis Revisited goes beyond the mere scientific curiosity; it delves into the core of humankind's existence, origin, and destiny. It is a revelation about where we are going because it reveals where we have come from.

Flap copy

Science and Myth Are they one and the same? - Has a prehistoric space base on Mars been reactivated? - Was Adam the first test-tube baby? And was Eve the original beneficiary of organ transplant surgery? - Did nuclear weapons destroy Sodom and Gomorrah? - Did computer printouts exist 5,000 years ago? - How were the ancients able to accurately describe details about our solar system that are only now being revealed by space probes? - Is humankind, in catching up with ancient knowledge, also repeating ancient incidents as that of the Tower of Babel? The awesome answers are all here, fully documented with the latest scientific findings, in this important companion volume to The Earth Chronicles series. Having presented evidence of an additional planet as well as voluminous information about the other planets in our solar system, Zecharia Sitchin now shows how the discoveries of modern astrophysics, astronomy, and genetics exactly parallel what has already been revealed in ancient Sumerian, Egyptian, and biblical texts regarding the enigmas of the heavens, Earth, and the creation of life.
