THE 12th PLANET - a return in 2012?

A tremendous amount of literature has been written about the mysterious Twelfth Planet. There are claims that it is all nonsense but there are also those who swear by it. Approximately 6000 years ago the ancient Sumerians were already well informed of this planet. At this point one was already informed and aware of, including the Sun and the Moon, this Twelfth member of our solar system.

An article in the February 1998 edition of Intermediar (Dutch magazine) notifies us about the fact that around 2200 BC there were various ancient civilizations that came to their downfall. This article attracted my attention because I saw a connection between what the ancient Sumerians knew 6000 years ago and my own theory about yet another planet in our solar system. A planet which together with our Sun and Moon would be the 12th member of our Solar System just as the ancient Sumerians covered in full detail on ancient clay tablets more than 6000 years ago. After many years of studying the ancient clay tablets it was the American Zecharia Sitchin whom was able to literally translate them in his book. The book came out under the title of 'The Twelfth Planet' which was published in the Netherlands in 1980. Besides the fact that these ancient clay tablets described daily life there was also a lot of information to be found on them regarding the mysterious 12th planet. Sitchin concluded from various available facts that this mysterious 12th planet, a member of our Solar System, had an orbital velocity of 3600 Earth years. According to Sitchin the last passage of this planet would have occurred approximately 200 years BC. After several investigations it seems there is nothing to trace this back to. My reasoning is that if there was a planet that passed through our Solar System around 200 BC there should undoubtedly be evidence of some sort to trace back to and confirm the fact that our Solar System welcomed an 'outside' visitor around 200 BC. Unfortunately there is no concrete evidence that traces back to those statements.

As previously mentioned Sitchin concluded that this mysterious 12th planet had an orbital revolution time of 3600 years. This planet was a contributing factor to the sudden ending of the Ice Age around 11,000 BC. This was the same time period in which the last part of Atlantis sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Around 7400 and 3800 there are drastic changes perceived in the history of Sumeria. The time period between these two noted dates is exactly 3600 years, another reason to all the more accept the fact that Nibiru really does have a revolution time of 3600 years. One could say that during the passage of Nibiru the civilization in Sumeria was thrust to a higher level. But are all these facts correct? Do they jive? According to my theory there is a longer period of time needed to thrust a civilization to a higher level. I do not believe that this phenomenon is possible from 'one day to another'.

At NASA they have been searching for the 'Planet X' otherwise known as the 10th planet for years. By not including the Sun and the Moon in their calculations they come up with 10 planets. You could ask yourself why this sudden interest by many of the scholars considering that most of them find the literal translations published by Sitchin utter nonsense. It is especially the Assyriologists that find this theory too far fetched and that is putting it mildly. I believe that the scientific world has only one stand in this matter and that is' nothing is possible unless it can be scientifically proven', but we won't go into that right now. The fact of the matter is that NASA is currently searching for a planet within our Solar System.

If we then start to calculate with periods of 3600 years starting at the time of 11,000 BC, the moment, which according to Sitchin the 12th planet was a contributing factor to the great flood, we indeed come up with 7400, 3800 and 200 BC. Coinciding exactly with data from different growth periods from the Sumerian history. Unfortunately a mistake has crept into these calculations and the statistics do not tally.

In his book 'Gods from the Cosmos' Allan Alford has thoroughly calculated that it was the year 10,983 BC that the great flood occurred. He displayed a clever pattern of logical thinking with these calculations. He tells us that the 'Sar' the holy period which the ancient Sumerians illustrated as a circle, which according to Sitchin represented the 3600 years of revolution time, should be written as 2160 and not as 3600. If you take a number out of the Sumerian sexagesimal system of numbers and want to start calculating with it in our 10 number system then you have to convert it first.

The Sumerian sexigesimal system of numbers works with changing factors that increase by 6 and 10. This structure looked like the following: 1, 10, 60, 600, 3600, 36,000, 216,000 etc. Every other preceding number is multiplied by 6 or 10. The number 5000 is written as 12,320 in Sumerian.

1x3600 + 2x600 + 3x60 + 2x10 + 0x1 = 5000. But if we look at the number 3600 and write it down at the Sumerian way, we see that the result is 2160.

3x600 + 6x60 + 0x10 + 0x1 = 2160.

Therefore I have a strong suspicion and there are strong indications that show that the revolutionary orbit of this 12th planet does not consist of 3600 years but of 2160 years. If my assumptions are correct then what would the consequences be? If we perform a whole new calculation from the time of the great flood, which according to Alford occurred in 10,983 BC, with the new revolution time of 2160 years then we get a whole new series of data, namely 10,983, 8823, 6663, 4503, 2343, 183 BC and 1977 AD. According to my sources there was mention of a planet in our Solar System at that time. Does that mean we should take the calculations and file them in the nearest garbage can? I think not, all the more Alford describes the arguments between the 2 gods, these known as Thoth and his brother Marduk. These two were in conflict over the fact as to when the precession of the Earth exactly started. Thoth was able to convince Marduk that it occurred one and a half degrees later then what Marduk had calculated. A degree and a half of the precession cycle are 108 years. If we add this number to 1977 then we come up with the year 2085. Could this possibly be the reason as to why NASA is so busy with locating the position of 'Planet X'? Do they already have the mysterious planet in their line of sight?

In the back of my head there continued to be a little voice that kept saying that I should calculate this differently. But how? The current day precession cycle does not consist of 25,920 years as the Sumerians had written down but of 25,776 years. The number 2160 is the twelfth fraction of a precession cycle that takes 25,920 years. If we divide 25,776 by twelve then we come up with 2148 years. I am under the assumption that the revolution time of the 12th planet takes 2148 years instead of 3600 or 2160 years. If we proceed to calculate in periods of 2148 years starting at 10,983 BC and add another degree and a half of 25,776 to it, in other words that means 107.4 years then we come up with a result of... 2012 AD!! The end of the Mayan Calendar. Coincidence? Without wishing for this to happen this calculation surprisingly enough appeared in the mailbox. At first I was looking at it in total surprise. If we take the previously written article in the Intermediar and compare it to these calculations of a revolutionary time of 2148 years for the 12th planet then it isn't as strange as it first seems that it will once again make an appearance in our Solar System in the year 2012.

The heading of the article read: 'Climatic catastrophe destroys oldest civilisation'. To summarise the contents of this article it concludes that there are things that happened around the year 2200 BC that cannot be explained by current day scientists. It has been given the explanation that it was possibly caused by a disturbance in ocean currents. The contents of the inner core of a drill bit that had been submerged 2 meters into the Gulf of Oman painstakingly summarized as to what had blown into the Indian Ocean from the mainland as of the year 14,000. The article says that 'during the last Ice Age there was only talk of huge amounts of desert dust, but after that the amounts decrease to correspond with current day norms'. The article follows with 'But according to the C-14 method there was more desert dust blowing into the Indian Ocean around 2000 BC than before'. One has no idea how this could be possible. During research on the sediment layers of Elk Lake in Minnesota one discovered that there are 3 periods of a few hundred years each that indicate that there was definitely more dust that settled on the bottom. These periods were 5800, 3800 and 2100 BC. A co-worker at the Ohio State University researched drill cores from the Peruvian glaciers and discovered that the most radical periods of dryness in the last 17,000 years took place around 2200 BC.

If we take this data and lay it beside the data that I have regarding the revolutionary time of the 12th planet (2148 years) than we see great similarities. Results from my calculations show that it is possible that the planet was in our Solar System around 6663, 4503, 2343 BC. Besides that take the periods that there was more desert dust to be found in the various layers of the earth namely around 5800, 3800, and 2100 BC, then according to me the similarities are no longer a coincidence. Is it possible that the 12th planet, previously described by the ancient Sumerians 6000 years ago, is the 'culprit' responsible for the 'deviations' in the soil? In between the passage date that I had calculated as being 6663 BC of the 12th planet and the dry period of 5800 BC there is a period of 863 years. According to the researchers the data they have brought forth of 5800, 3800 and 2100 BC are only approximations. It is also of interest to know if the Earth remains in the same position every time the 'penetrator' enters our Solar System. If this is not the case then it seems very well possible to me that these periods of dryness, unexplainable by the learned ladies and gentlemen of science, are the main cause and effect of the passage of the mysterious 12th member of our Solar System known as Nibiru.

In his book 'Heaven's Mirror', Graham Hancock describes that an astrophysicist from the University of Oxford and a few colleagues from various universities all over the world believe that about 20,000 years ago a gigantic comet entered our Solar System. This comet disintegrated thereby leaving behind a ring of broken pieces. The Earth apparently crosses through this ring regularly which is noticeable by a large amount of 'falling stars'. One also noticed that it is possible that once in a while the Earth enters an area where there are larger remnants from this 'comet' which would result in the melting of the ice caps during the last Ice Age in between 14,000 and 9000 years ago. One continues to suggest that it is possible that these larger pieces 'dropping' to the Earth could have been the cause of the destruction of various prosperous and successful civilisations that disappeared mysteriously between 2350 BC and 500 AD.

To be sure that my calculations are right, a professional mathematician, pshycisist and astronomer checked my calculations. After checking everything he concluded they are right. In other words: an orbit of 2148 years is more logical and fits better in our conception of our Solar System.

When I take all these indications and put them all in order I take heed to note that it is very well possible that all these happenings from the past are due to the mysterious 12th planet that the ancient Sumerians already knew of 6000 years ago under the name of Nibiru.

But as usual time will tell - and in this case most likely in the year 2012.
