“The standard planet formation theory assumes that Uranus, Neptune and the cores of Jupiter and Saturn formed by accreting only small objects in the proto-planetary disk. They should have suffered no giant collisions. The fact that Uranus was hit at least twice suggests that significant impacts were typical in the formation of giant planets. So, the standard theory has to be revised.”-Alessandro Morbidelli, Observatoire de la Cote d’Azur in Nice, France
Growing evidence of how the planets in our outer solar system formed, might bring some legitimacy to an ancient Sumerian “myth”.
Past ideas about how the outer planets were formed suggested that nothing major happened, no big impacts with other celestial bodies, things like that.
But remember when Jupiter got hit by that big comet (Comet Shoemaker–Levy 9)? Now scientists think they’ve figured out why Uranus spins on its side, with its axis almost horizontal to the rest of the planets: It suffered major impacts, at least twice.
There is an ancient Sumerian myth which predates Hebrew writings by thousands of years. It talks of what I call a Ronin (masterless) Planet, named Nibiru. While Nibiru might be the cause of the cyclic catastrophes on Earth, the myth indicates that most of its orbits take it through what we call the outer solar system.
The sixth dynastic king of a unified Nibiru, EnShar (Master of the Shar), focused on trying to find out why their planet’s atmosphere was thinning, causing terrible climate change.
EnShar realized that Nibiru’s orbit takes it into the path of the inner and outer planets circling the Sun, but mainly the outer planets: “To remedy the afflictions ways he sought; of Nibiru heavenly circuit [orbit] he made much study. In its loop, of the Sun’s family five members it embraced [outer solar system], planets of dazzling beauty. For cures to the afflictions, their atmospheres he caused to be examined. To each he gave a name, ancestral forefathers he honored; as heavenly couples he them considered. An and Antu [Uranus & Neptune], the twin like planets, he called the first two to be encountered. Beyond in Nibiru’s circuit were Anshar and Kishar [Saturn & Jupiter], in their size the largest. As a messenger Gaga [Pluto] among the others coursed, sometimes first Nibiru to meet.”
It’s clear in the myth that Nibiru came close enough to the outer planets, often enough, that it was possible for their scientists to get good data about those planets. The myth explains that at the time of EnShar it was rare for Nibiru to pass through the inner solar system, and even more difficult to study the inner planets: “Beyond, like a boundary, the Hammered Bracelet [asteroid belt, which might have been more spread out back then] the Sun encircled: As a guardian of the heaven’s forbidden region [inner solar system] with havoc it protected. Other children of the Sun, four in number [Mercury, Venus, Earth & Mars], from intrusion the bracelet shielded.”
The ancient myth does suggest that when Nibiru passes through the outer solar system it occasionally knocks into the big gas planets. But more clearly, when Nibiru passes through the inner solar system it almost always wreaks havoc.
The asteroid belt, and the Earth were the result of Nibiru smashing into a much larger planet and its eleven moons/smaller planets: “Face to face they came, Tiamat [proto-earth] and Nibiru; against each other they were advancing. They for battle approached, they pressed on for single combat. The Lord [Nibiru] spread his net [gravitational field], to encompass her he cast it. With fury Tiamat cried out, like one possessed she lost her senses. The Evil Wind [electromagnetic radiation?], which had been behind him, Nibiru drove forward, in her face he let it loose. She opened her mouth [giant breach in Tiamat's magnetic field, Earth suffered one in 2007] the Evil Wind to swallow, but could not close her lips. The Evil Wind charged her belly, into her innards it made its way. Her innards were howling, her body was distended, her mouth was open wide. Through the opening Nibiru shot a brilliant arrow a lightning most divine. It pierced her innards, her belly it tore apart, it tore into her womb, it split apart her heart.”
Nibiru finishes the job on its return orbit: “To Tiamat, whom he had subdued, the Lord Nibiru then returned. He made his way to her, paused to view her lifeless body. To artfully divide the monster in his heart lie was planning.
Then, as a mussel, into two parts he split her, her chest from her lower parts he separated. Her inner channels he cut apart, her golden veins he beheld with wonder.” Also: “With his mace the hinder part he smashed to bits and pieces,
Then strung them together as a band to form a Hammered Bracelet. Locking them together, as watchmen he stationed them, a Firmament to divide the waters [upper water/outer solar system] from the waters [water below/inner solar system].” Also: “He gazed upon Tiamat’s wounded half, to her Upper Part he gave attention: The waters of life, her bounty, from the wounds were still pouring….By Firm Land let her be called Ki, henceforth her name to be!
Apsu [celestial water(dark matter/dark energy/space)/god/sun] to the words of Nibiru gave heed: Let the Earth join my family, Ki, Firm Land of the Below [meaning terrestrial planet of the water below/inner solar system], let Earth her name henceforth be! By her turning let there day and night be; in the days my healing rays to her I shall provide. Let Kingu [a proto-planet/moon of Tiamat] be a creature of the night, to shine at night I shall appoint him Earth’s companion, the Moon forever to be!”
This myth is supposedly older than any other found so far. Sumerian clay cylinder seals clearly show all the planets of our solar system, plus Nibiru. How did they know? The ancient Sumerian writings were translated in the 1960s & 1970s, now astronomers are finding more evidence that suggests these ancient myths might not be myths at all, almost like gettin’ knocked on Uranus.
