Zecharia Sitchin: An eminent Orientalist and Biblical scholar, Zecharia Sitchin is distinguished by his ability to read ancient Sumerian clay tablets and other ancient texts. Through such texts, religious documents and archaeological findings, he reconstructs epic events that support the existence of extraterrestrial “gods” who once set nation against nation, and man against man. He is a graduate of the University of London and worked as a journalist and editor in Israel for many years. He now lives and writes in New York.

Coast to Coast AM appearances:

Dearly Departed Special
Thursday August 1, 2013
For over 20 years, Coast to Coast AM has been host to some of the most brave, innovative and informed experts. In separate half-hour segments, George played and commented on six different interviews from former guests in the C2C family that are no longer with us, yet whose legacies and ideas live on. We heard an interview with renowned scholar Zecharia Sitchin who recounted his theory of ancient ET visitors from the planet Nibiru during the 2/1/10 show. Sitchin died later in 2010 at the age of 90.
Host: George Noory

UFO History
Monday February 1, 2010
Appearing during the first half of the 4th hour, renowned scholar Zecharia Sitchin recounted his theory of ancient ET visitors, and talked about his forthcoming book which compares his work to biblical tales. He said he was pleased with the mainstream coverage he received in a recent New York Times profile. George Noory will be paying tribute to Sitchin as he receives a Lifetime Achievement Award at the upcoming Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles.
Host: George Noory

UFOs & ETs
Monday May 11, 2009
Making a rare appearance on the show, first hour guest, noted scholar Zecharia Sitchin talked about his latest endeavor, The Earth Chronicles Handbook, which he called a “GPS” to his earlier seven book series. The new guidebook serves as an encyclopedic compendium of the myths and actual events from humanity’s ancient civilizations such as the Sumerians. He said there is evidence that the Anunnaki (visitors from the planet Nibiru which has an elliptical orbit in our solar system) left Earth in 550 BC but promised to return. Sitchin also claimed that astronomers had seen Nibiru but hushed up the information.

Crop Circles & Sitchin
Thursday December 22, 2005
In the first hour, Sumerian scholar Zecharia Sitchin joined Hilly. It’s been 30 years since Sitchin’s influential book The 12th Planet was first published, outlining his thesis that a race known as the Anunnaki descended to Earth from their planet, Nibiru, which comes into the inner solar system every 3,600 years. He announced that he is working on a new book that will be as significant as The 12th Planet and will deal with “touchy subjects.” Sitchin said he believes the Anunnaki will revisit our planet “in some people’s lifetimes.” He also commented that recent pictures of Mars taken by the Spirit Rover show artificial structures such as walls and towers, which he suggested could have been constructed by the Anunnaki.

Cashless Society
Wednesday January 5, 2005
Mars Structures: In the last hour, Hilly interviewed author and scholar Zecharia Sitchin about archeological artifacts on Mars. Sitchin believes Mars was inhabited for thousands of years by “others like us,” and served as a way station between Earth and the planet of the Anunnaki. He claims pictorial depictions on ancient cylinder seals show an astronaut on Mars greeting an astronaut on Earth. He also discussed stories from his newest book, The Earth Chronicles Expeditions.

Zecharia Sitchin Biography (

The following is the Wikipedia entry for Zecharia Sitchin. It is a good reference as a bibliography for his published works and ancillary texts/videos. However, this Wikipedia biography of Sitchin gives a bland, perfunctory description of his theories, then devotes the rest of the biography to Sitchin’s critics. Little attention is given to how he came to write the Earth Chronicles, what his early years developing his theories were like – for insight into those years, I would suggest reading his many interviews. (Note by this Web site: some updates have been made to the text that are not reflected in the original source.)

Known for: Ancient astronauts

Zecharia Sitchin (July 11, 1920 – October 9, 2010 [1]) was an Azerbaijani-born American author of books proposing an explanation for human origins involving ancient astronauts. Sitchin attributes the creation of the ancient Sumerian culture to the Anunnaki, which he states was a race of extraterrestrials from a planet beyond Neptune called Nibiru. He believed this hypothetical planet of Nibiru to be in an elongated, elliptical orbit in the Earth’s own Solar System, asserting that Sumerian mythology reflects this view. Sitchin’s books have sold millions of copies worldwide and have been translated into more than 25 languages.
