There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Zacheria Stichin is perhaps the worlds greatest science researcher and expert in the worlds undiscolsed history. Working from Sumerian myths he has identified a very long period orbit planet , sometimes named Nebiru that has an orbit of about 35,000 years. The residents of this planet brought farming and science to primitive men or they actually built some men to use as workers.

Well his family claim so but no skeptic should believe it; and anyway you got the details wrong. The planet is always called Nibiru and the orbit period is 3600 Earth years, see The Official Web Site of Zecharia Sitchin.Iph (talk) 09:30, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
Possible expansion RE: The Twelfth Planet
I am fortunate enough to work in a place where I sort through hundreds of books daily that are donated and decide what is worth keeping or not. I decided to grab The Twelfth Planet out of sick interest. Curious if any is in favor of a page regarding how crap the books is, I'm 3 chapters in and he's employed almost every logical fallacy thought of.
Personally too lazy to do a side by side article, although I wouldn't mind doing something like a chapter summary for each (Maybe 100 words) with a quick debunking underneath or something. However other websites have done a thorough job of this, so it may be better with a link to point to one of those? -- EWildman (talk) 03:08, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
- Glad there was no response, I don't think I could do this. His writing is terrible, and there would be so much material to debunk. I will try to find a good link to put there. -- EWildman (talk)
'How little' recoil would be needed for a missile/spaceprobe leaving Phobos to dislocate it from orbit?
Given that 'life exists on Earth in most places it can (nuclear power stations, at the bottom of the ocean, etc etc) life might well emerge, and adapt to live on long period planets - but is likely to spend much time outside the habitable zone in 'suspended animation.' 22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:51, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
"It is the opinion of some that Sitchin when alive was part of an ongoing conspiracy involving extremist cells of Pagans, Jews, Satanists and Freemasons currently attempting to trick the world into believing aliens are living amongst us here on Earth and can hear everything we think through Telepathy, to destabilize world religion and bring about a New World Order one world government and religion."
I dunno, Weaseloid, maybe you should've left that in? That's comedy gold right there. I literally laughed out loud. Plus, it is technically true that that bizarre theory is "the opinion of some." Wehpudicabok [話] [変] [留] 08:28, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
