Planet X

Planet X – Is there Scientific Evidence?

(Read the article on one page)

The Birth of the Moon

Ultimately, the two planets collided; and from this collision, the Moon was born! According to this study though, the impact was more of a glancing blow from the rear and at an angle, rather than a head-on collision. As for the debris, if it did not get reabsorbed to create the Moon, it was expanded in space or fell back to Earth. Several computer simulations further established this scenario could primarily take place if two conditions were met: a) the collision was more of a glancing blow from behind and not a head-on collision and b) the Earth must have been fully established by the time of the collision; otherwise, it could have never recovered. The same study also projected that this impact could have been what started or modified the Earth’s rotation!

Although the particular study did not go as far as to examine the possibility of whether Earth, at one point, could have revolved around the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, interestingly, it otherwise validates every other aspect from Sitchin's claim.

Planet X

What about Nibiru or Planet X, as modern astronomers call it? Is it possible that there is another planet in our solar system? While, for several decades, scientists unsuccessfully have searched for Planet X, as it turns out, on December 11th, 2015, Wouter Vlemming and his scientific team announced that they finally found the renegade planet (See Washington Post article titled: " Scientists claimed they found elusive ‘Planet X.’ Doubting astronomers are in an uproar.")

Of course, and to no one's surprise, several astronomers immediately disputed the surprising announcement, including Mike Brown (a Cal Tech astronomer best known as the "Man who killed Pluto".) Most unpredictably, however, Mike Brown and his own team, although harsh critics of the earlier announcement, less than a month later, in January 2016 stepped forward to announce their own discovery of Planet X (See article in Los Angeles Times : "Astronomers' findings point to a ninth planet, and it's not Pluto".)

Regardless though of how exciting these latest announcements may be, many of us who are old enough still remember that Planet X was actually pronounced found more than 30 years ago. In fact, in 1987, an article in "The New Illustrated Science and Invention Encyclopedia" , covering the Pioneer 10 and Pioneer 11 space program, published an illustration that not only showed the trajectories of the two spacecrafts, but interestingly enough, the exact location of Planet X as well as the location of another dead star in our solar system! 

So, if Planet X gradually is turning out to be real, what about Sitchin's claim that the Earth, at one point, may have revolved around the sun between Mars and Jupiter? Does such a claim have any basis?

The unusually closely spaced orbits of six of the most distant objects in the Kuiper Belt indicate the existence of a ninth planet whose gravity affects these movements.

The Titius-Bode Law, established initially by Johann Daniel Titius in 1766 and followed by Johann Elbert Bode in 1768, was a hypothesis that mathematically rationalized the semi-major axes of the six known planets at the time (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn), and further predicted the existence of another planet in the void between Jupiter and Mars. When William Herschel discovered Uranus in 1781 and the planet’s orbit matched the law almost perfectly, this led astronomers to the conclusion that there should be another planet between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.

In 1800, determined to bring the solar system into order, astronomers began an extensive search for the missing planet between Mars and Jupiter. Instead of a large planet though, they found several smaller planetary bodies that, although at first they classified as planets, later they demoted them as large asteroids—or dwarf planets, such was Ceres, the first dwarf planet found in the asteroid belt with a diameter of 950 kilometers (590 miles). Pallas was the second with a diameter of 530 kilometers (329 miles). In 1807, two more dwarf planets were found in the region: Juno and Vesta.

In 1802, soon after the discovery of Ceres and Pallas, Heinrich Olbers, a German physician and astronomer, suggested that the two planets were fragments of a much-larger planet which once occupied the region and had suffered an internal explosion or destruction by a comet millions of years earlier. Over time, the Olbers hypothesis fell from favor due to the fact that the debris in the asteroid belt did not amount to the mass of an entire planet.


Go research 'Stitchen debunked'. He translated Sumarian texts wrong and full of error. Thus,' Ancient Alien ' theories were born based and built upon his falsely translated material, since not too many do their own research . Niburu was 'Mars' on a much different orbit than it is today. Read Mars-Earth Wars by Donald Patten. Interesting stuff. His translation, (paraphrased) 'Those who from heaven came' is completely wishful thinking slanted to and according to his own beliefs. He was never a Sumarian language expert. he just thought he was. And people will still believe even though all his work was already debunked.

do not read THAT stuff, read THIS stuff......this is real, and that is all wrong.
.and you know Sitchin is wrong because....? YOU are an expert in early Sumerian translations?
YOU are a Sumerian language expert? gosh, how special you are.

First read the info before these kind of remarks CARLOS1 ... PLEASE !!!
PETUNIA is right in what he/she says.

Childish remarks like that says only something about you.

PS, Sitchin was an excellent researcher and most of the time in his books (if you have read them) you will see that he clearly identifies what is a speculation and what is not. Because of him we know a lot about Sumerians and their writings. This of course doesn’t make him perfect and he did excagerate in many things.

Quoting two ‘debunking’ sites is not a reliable source at all. Basically no debunking site is a good source. Debunkers have only one goal “no matter what discredit anyone that is against mainstream”. They take things out of context, add things, cook things and present them in a convincing way. That’s all. 

"PETUNIA is right in what he/she says." ...interesting, all that from on High, I suppose

PS, I did read the info. then I read the remark about how one theory/idea/speculation is
just wrong, and this other one is just Truth, so believe it. then you defend he/she/it and refer me to 2 debunking links about Sitchin/Von Daniken. (hardly reliable sources)
OK OK I am now convinced, you and Pet. are correct and I am a childish dope for believing anything else could possibly be truth. I am waiting now for your quotes from the scripture

The underwater ruins of Fuxian Lake in China are an enigma. Their age is enough to set the forgotten city apart, but the strange carvings still gracing the submerged stones really confuses archaeologists.
In an underwater investigation in Fuxian Lake, Yunnan Province, China, started on June 13, 2006, archeologists discovered remains of a group of huge ancient buildings at the bottom of the lake. The investigation team found numerous regularly placed stones featuring mysterious carvings.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
