When the Greeks adopted Thoth, the god of the Game of 52, as their god Hermes, they bestowed on him the title Hermes Trismegistos, "Hermes the thrice greatest." Perhaps they recognized that he had thrice guided Mankind in the observation of the beginning of a New Age-the changeover to Taurus, to Aries, to Pisces.
For that was, for those generations of Mankind, when Time began.

Sitchin's material is cutting edge, although it can be somewhat dense and academic. Ancient aliens directing the course of the earth is the theme of most of his writing. His research is so thorough and his theories so logical that I suspect he will one day be seen as a visionary who "figured it out" long before conventional science.

No more far fetched than the standard eve coming from adam's rib scenario. Which is really far.
Sitchin is not an expert in Sumerian.

different prospective on what happen on earth in the begining of time.
Dean Sundmark
Really interesting information, a bit wordy and technical at times.
