Publisher's 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.

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

Full of Information

Where does The 12th Planet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In line with other history books I have read. This is a history book. Alot of time spent up front getting everything setup for the second part of the book.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the detailed look into existing anomalies with Earth and our solar system, and how they fit into [or could fit into] Sumerian histories/myths.

What does Stephen Bel Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It's a history book, can be boring.Stephen did a great job keeping it going.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but just too much to get through all at once. Best to listen to a few chapters, take notes, then compare to other sources.

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!

Masterfully researched interpretation of genesis

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