9780939680900: The Wars of Gods and Men (Earth Chronicles)

The Earth Chronicles series, in six voumes, deals with the history and prehistory of Earth and humankind. Each book in the series, based upon information written on clay tablets by the ancient civilizations of the Near East, records the fantastic and real battles that occurred between the original creator gods over control of planet Earth. Asserting the premise that mythology is not fanciful but the repository of ancient memories, The Earth Chronicles series suggests that the Bible ought to be read literally as a historic/scientific document, and that ancient civilizations--older and greater than assumed--were the product of knowledge brought to Earth by the Anunnaki, "Those Who from Heaven to Earth Came."

The 12th Planet, the first book of the series, presents ancient evidence for the existence of an additional planet in the Solar System: the home planet of the Anunnaki. In confirmation of this evidence, recent data from unmanned spacecraft has led astronomers to actively search for what is being called "Planet X."

The subsequent volume, The Stairway to Heaven, traces man's unending search for immortality to a spaceport in the Sinai Peninsula and to the Giza pyramids, which had served as landing beacons for it--refuting the notion that these pyramids were built by human pharaohs. Recently, records by an eye-witness to a forgery of an inscription by the pharaoh Khufu inside the Great Pyramid corroborated the book's conclusions.

In The Wars of Gods and Men, the third volume of his series, Zacharia Sitchin recounts events closer to our times, concluding that the Sinai spaceport was destroyed 4,000 years ago with nuclear weapons. Photographs of Earth from space clearly show evidence of such an explosion.The Wars of Gods and Men additionally embraces Canaanite, Hittite, and Hindu sources to include in these investigations the incidents of The Great Flood, the Tower of Babel, and the upheaval of Sodom and Gomorrah. Sitchin's unique reexamination of ancient mysteries explains these past cataclysmic events in the history of humanity, opening insights into our future.

Review:

Zecharia Sitchin's Earth Chronicles series is based on the premise that mythology is not physiologically based, psychologically metaphorical, or culturally allegorical but rather the repository of ancient memories, and that the Bible ought to be read as a historical scientific document. While the debate regarding the origins of myth is far from conclusive, and the dangers of assuming that the subjectivity of the reader/researcher will not intervene are obvious, Stitchin is an expert in ancient language and history. While the reader may scoff at his unfortunately characteristic long leaps of logic resulting in conclusions (such as that gods from outer space destroyed a spaceport on the Sinai Peninsula four millennia ago), he does present some compelling ideas not easily ignored. The series, of which this is the third volume, deserves a read by those fascinated with the search for the origins of humankind who don't mind spending time separating wheat from chaff. --P. Randall Cohan

From the Back Cover:

ARCHAEOLOGY / HISTORY

Was man born a warrior, or were we taught to make war? In this, the third book of The Earth Chronicles series, Zecharia Sitchin provides startling evidence that the "gods" who had come to Earth from the twelfth planet Nibiru engaged in a series of fierce battles for supremacy on our planet, enlisting the Earthlings in their wars. Sitchin relies on meticulous study of ancient records--from Sumerian tablets and the Old Testament to the ancient myths of the Canaanites, Hittites, and Hindu teachings--to trace the saga of gods and men from a creative beginning to a tragic end. He then uses modern sources such as ASA photographs of Earth taken from space to reveal evidence of a huge nuclear blast in the Sinai that took place 4,000 years ago, forever changing life on Earth. Sitchin's unique reexamination of ancient mysteries explains The Great Flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and other past cataclysmic events in the history of humanity, opening insights into our future.

“An intriguing book~ead it. ... Sitchin is to be congratulated. ... He makes his point) and makes it well. ”
--The British UFO Research Organization
