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, intermarriage took place: "There were giants upon the Earth" who took Adam's female offspring as wives, giving birth to "heroes of renown." With meticulous detail, Sitchin shows that these were the demigods of Sumerian and Babylonian lore, such as the famed Mesopotamian king Gilgamesh as well as the hero of the Deluge, the Babylonian Utnapishtim.*Are we then, all of us, descendants of demigods?* In this crowning oeuvre, Zecharia Sitchin proceeds step-by-step through a mass of ancient writings and artifacts, leading the reader to the stunning Royal Tombs of Ur. He reveals a DNA source that could prove the biblical and Sumerian tales true, providing conclusive physical evidence for past alien presence on Earth and an unprecedented scientific opportunity to track down the "Missing Link" in humankind's evolution, unlocking the secrets of longevity and even the ultimate mystery of life and death.

Author Information

Zecharia Sitchin (1920-2010), an eminent Orientalist and biblical scholar, 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 in Israel 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.

Review quote

"Utilizing the Bible (which Sitchin also provides some Hebrew words and the English mis-translations), Sumerian clay tablets and/or cylinders, as well as some other ancient texts, the author presents his case of how man (modern day humans) came to be. . . . I recommend this book for those who are interested in aliens, ancient history, and for those who can handle a lot of detailed information. I enjoyed the book."

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.
