|They don't know, therefore...|
|Xenu was here|
Zecharia Sitchin (Azerbaijani: Zaxariya Sitçin) (1920–2010) was a complete crank who believed in a "twelfth planet" called Nibiru that created all life on Earth. It is apparently a "yo-yo" planet that only shows up every so often, or something. It is also responsible for the asteroid belt. All of this is supposedly found in a prophecy written by the ancient Sumerians and confirmed in the New Testament. He basically spliced together Immanuel Velikovsky's catastrophism with Erich von Däniken's ancient astronauts, using as a glue his own contribution to the mix - the long-period planet Nibiru and its inhabitants, the Anunnaki.
Somehow, he was convinced that he was moments away from being recognized as the most important scientist of all time.
