Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

Biographie de l'auteur

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.

Excellent livre qui ouvre des orizons trop peu fréquenté par la science. A lire d'urgence.

Myth or Reality? The Scholarship of Zecharia Sitchin, by Kenneth Pollinger, Ph.D. 24 mai 2010
Par Kenneth J. Pollinger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
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, respectively, a "goddess" and a "demi-god"), which, if their DNA and mtDNA are tested, could provide the MISSING LINK (that small but crucial group of "alien' genes--223 of them?)that genetically upgraded a Homo Erectus or Homo Ergaster to Homo Sapiens, some 300,000 years ago.
I can't help but wonder how many people have read the Book of Genesis in-depth and have bought the mainstream interpretation, whether Jewish or Christian. This book, along with his others, could possibly overturn everything they have learned in their religions. BUT, of course, the crucial point is whether we have "mythology" or prehistorical/historical facts. For this reason, it is of the utmost importance to have the skeletal remains tested asap.
I urge you to read this book with an open mind and see if you can accept Sitchin's outstanding scholarship. Certainly we need to learn more about rhe earliest civilizations: the Babylonian, the Assyrian, the Egyptian, and ESPECIALLY the earliest, the SUMERIAN, which were not part of our "history" courses in school.
Lastly, if you read the book and think that Sitchin may have a tentative solution to the Missing Link, please email: Dr. Margaret Clegg at [...] and encouage her and the Museum to do the needed tests on the remains of Queen Shubad and King Mes-Kalam-dug.
And, hopefully, ANOTHER book by Zecharia Sitchin will explain the results!

Sitchin should win an award 28 juillet 2010
Par John M. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
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 26 mai 2010
Par WiffleBird - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
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.

Proof of Our Alien DNA Within Reach 23 août 2010
Par Miriam Knight - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Reading this book is a bit like eating your way through an enormous banquet, lured on by the promise of a delectable dessert - but when you get to the end, they've run out! At least the feast itself is lavish and tasty. The central thesis of the book is that the ancient creation myths of Gods, giants and heroes were not myths at all but actual history, and that the proof is lying in the British Museum crying out for DNA testing.

Recapping some of the best parts of his earlier books, Zecharia Sitchin presents an overview of the cosmology of our planet in which he makes the case for alien genetic manipulation as the cause for the hitherto unexplained leap from homo erectus to homo sapiens and the rapid flowering of early civilizations.

While the various archeological records may use different names for the same gods and reflect different national perspectives on the stories, by and large they reinforce each others story lines. The detective work Sitchin used to piece together a coherent chronology is breathtaking. Weaving together ancient texts, including the bible, the Enûma Elish and the Gilgamesh epic with archaeological finds and artifacts from Mesopotamia to Egypt, the 90-year-old author of The 12th Planet presents the gods (conflated in the bible to one God) in a very "human" light. Indeed, it is somewhat depressing to realize that these advanced beings, who became the lawgivers and models for our societies, had the same appetites, ambitions, jealousies and taste for sex, war and conflict that we see in ourselves. Since, according to Sitchin, aliens introduced their own DNA into that of the native hominids, I guess one could say that we come by it honestly.

The translation of ancient languages is often based on best guesses and there are disagreements and rivalries amongst the archaeologists - they are human after all. While many of them ignore evidence that doesn't fit into the conventional worldview, Sitchin fearlessly revels in inconvenient truths such as pictures of rocket ships and anachronistic artifacts like exquisite inlayed gold ornaments and musical instruments dated to the Bronze Age - before such technologies should have existed. Given Sitchin's lifelong dedication to Mesopotamian archaeology, his interpretations are as plausible as any of them, and a lot more fun to read than most.

So that brings us to the uneaten dessert. In 1922 Leonard Wooley, a British archaeologist dug up a royal cemetery in what was identified as the ancient city of Ur of the Chaldees. One of the undisturbed tombs contained the skeleton of a woman on a bier covered in a jeweled cape and surrounded by a fortune in gold ornaments, ceremonial ojects and the remains of almost a hundred attendants. The skull was exceptionally large and elongated, and Sitchin traced the inscriptions on the seals in the tomb to an Anunnaki goddess, whose genealogy goes back to the first gods to land on Earth from the seed planet, Nibiru.

The find could finally prove Sitchen's claim of our alien ancestry, and for the past eight years he has been petitioning the curators of the British Museum repeatedly to conduct DNA tests on the bone, but they have refused. A comparison with Neanderthal and modern human DNA would answer these questions once and for all. Let's hope enough pressure is brought to bear by the community to get the tests done. That would be a fitting dessert for us and for Zacharia Sitchin. In the meantime, enjoy the feast!

Another recap with some new stuff thrown in. 25 novembre 2010
Par John J. Wright - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This unfortunatly will be the last work of Sitchin as he passed away this October. This was a terrible loss to all alternate history buffs. You will be missed!! As far as There were giants upon the earth, It is basically a rehash of information from his other books. With his new theory of a possible Goddess Anunakki's body being discovered in ancient Sumer. The book keeps you into it even if like me you have read all of Sitchin's work. He starts with Alexander the Great's trek to find his own immortality. Then into the orgins of the Gods,Demigods and Humans. The book really has a nice easy flow to it. It is a joy to read and it is not over done with some of the mathmatics that where in earlier books. All in all a enjoyable read even if only 25% of the book is new information at most. I wonder who will now take up the torch now that we lost Zacharia Sitchin?
