Looking at the ancient tablets, there are a number of ways that they are commonly interpreted today. As we explored in the first episode, there are interpretations accounting for forces of nature, ancient astronauts, and even planets. Today, we take things to a new level, jumping in on one of the most unique interpretations of the story of Tiamat and Marduk, and relating them to planets in the early solar system, which dramatically changed the way our solar system looks, and setting the stage for the reality we experience on our planet today.
This interpretation largely came about when a young boy named Zechariah Sitchin was “called out” by his teacher for questioning the bible as a child, except he wasn’t questioning the bible, but the translations of the bible that seemed to change the phrase “Nephilim” to “Giants” in Genesis 6. Zechariah wanted answers, and upon discovering the Sumerian Tablets, he found his opportunity to find out just what the word “Nephilim” really meant.
After years of studying and research, he compiled a theory based on his understanding of the tablets, which shocked the world with the revelation that these stories go back into ancient antiquity, and describe the origin of the solar system itself. The goddess Tiamat was believed to be a watery planet orbiting the Sun (Apsu) in the position where the Asteroid Belt is today, and Marduk was believed to be a rogue planet that entered into our solar system from the outside, and wreaked havoc upon Tiamat, which ended up creating the Asteroid Belt, and even the Earth itself.
Thank you for joining us on this adventure, we look forward to seeing you in Part 3!
