every credibility gap there is a gullibility fill"
- Richard Clopton -
Welcome to the website devoted to addressing the flaws of the ancient astronaut hypothesis popularized in the writings of Zecharia Sitchin.
For the past two years, at conferences and on radio shows like Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell and George Noory, listeners have asked me numerous times to comment on the teachings of Zecharia Sitchin. Why? Because I am actually what Sitchin claims to be - a scholar of ancient near eastern languages, texts, history, and religion. People think (correctly) that if something's rotten in Sitchin's Denmark (or Nibiru) I ought to know. This site reveals that I do.
I know for many who stop by to browse the experience will be painful. So are tetanus shots, but you need them. You need to see what's on this site, too, if you are really interested in truth-seeking. You see, for the past two years I have had an open letter on the Internet asking Mr. Sitchin to answer some very simple, straightforward questions. If you have the courage to take the red pill and enter this site, I believe you'll also think these questions are entirely fair. They have gone unanswered.
Yes, Mr. Sitchin's webmaster has responded to a few items, and I have reproduced his response and my rejoinder on this site - not only for comic relief, but also explanatory value. What do these exchanges explain? That Mr. Sitchin's arguments, so ably reproduced by his webmaster, have zero academic credibility. I can't say it any other way and remain honest. If academia (as we often hear) is supposed to serve the public interest, consider this my contribution. Although I would disagree with the academic mainstream's fear of testing its own assured conclusions, I agree that it is irresponsible to allow blatant untruths to go uncontested.
Curious? Irritated? I invite you to explore my claims for yourself. Take a deep breath and click on the red pill.
YES, I really do want to read an honest appraisal of Sitchin's works by someone trained in these fields.
No way - I'm a fundamentalist Sitchinite, and I don't want to be confused by nasty things like grammar, linguistics, dictionaries, and truth.
