Great Fun, But Neither Science Nor Fiction
The author's essential premise is that a) civilization on earth was influenced by visitors from Niburu, an as yet undetected planet in our solar system and b) that they have an outpost on Mars which has been shooting down our space probes. The material is fascinating and the writing engaging as one might expect from a former journalist. Its major weakness is its failure to provide any references to source materials so the reader must either accept it as new gospel or not simply on its own terms.The tie in to The Book of Genesis is too sketchy to do justice to explain some of the admittedly strange material in the first book of the bible, material about the Nephilim, the sons of god, having sex with the daughters of men, and the story of the Tower of Babel which appears out of nowhere in scripture. Great fun but cosmology lite for those expecting more scientific rigor and fewer stories about aliens turning our ancestors into slaves to work in their gold mines 300,000 years ago.
