ARCHAEOLOGY / HISTORY

Special large-format edition, lavishly illustrated with maps, diagrams, and photographs

Is there more than a play of words to the statement that we are both earthly and divine? In this, the sixth installment in the painstakingly researched Earth Chronicles series, Zecharia Sitchin applies the latest advances in genetics to millennia-old scriptures to show that humankind, having evolved on Earth, is at the same time the Child of the Stars--a product of and subject to a cosmic code of life.

In this volume he offers a revolutionary theory concerning the existence of a biological-numerical-alphabetic code that was used by the Anunnaki to encode secret knowledge. This knowledge was taught by the Anunnaki to chosen individuals such as Enoch to create repositories of scientific data, to be revealed to humankind at appropriate times. It also forms the basis for prophecy--pre-knowledge of the future; for in these revelations, Sitchin identifies the turning point in celestial and terrestrial affairs in the delicate balance between predetermined Destiny and the vagaries of free-choice Fate. Unmasking the mysteries of prophecy, he lifts the fog of misunderstanding and disbelief that have long obscured historical truths and reveals the Master Code that connects humanity with the stars.

“Well researched and persuasive . . . Sitchin brings to this book the logic and scholarship so often lacking. . . . He demonstrates the flaws in established theories and exposes a few ancient hoaxes.”
--Library Journal

“Sitchin is a zealous investigator into man’s origins.”

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Exciting . . . credible . . . most provocative and compelling."

"Sitchin is a zealous investigator into man's origins . . . a dazzling performance."

"Sitchin's works are outstandingly different from all others that present this central theme. His linguistic skills in the languages of antiquity and his pursuit of the earliest available texts and artifacts make possible the wealth of photographs and line drawings appearing in his books from tablets, monuments, murals, pottery, and seals."

"The book is not scence fiction, though it sounds like something from a tv show on ancient mysteries combined with the makings of a great sci-fi novel."

Page 1 :

It took a war--a fierce and bloody war--to bring to light, just decades ago, one of the most enigmatic ancient sites in the Near East. If not the most enigmatic, it certainly is the most puzzling, and for sure one rooted in great antiquity. It is a structure that has no parallel among the remains of the great civilizations that had flourished in the Near East in past millennia--at least so far as has been uncovered. Its closest parallels are thousands of miles away, across the seas and on other continents; and what it mostly brings to mind is Stonehenge in faraway Britain.

Page 152-153:

It was probably inevitable that with the advent of the modern computer age, some masters of the craft would turn their capabilities to a novel and new goal: the search for a "secret code" in the Bible.
While this is presented in scientific papers and even books as the epitome of modern sophistication, the fact is that this search is actually renewed, not a new, search, albeit with new and more advanced tools. . . .
Discussions by Jewish sages and religious leaders intended to "read between the lines" of the words of the Torah, then of the Prophets, intensified during the exile after the destruction (by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar) of the First Temple, and even more so after the destruction of the Second Temple (by the Romans). The record of those deliberations is the Talmud ("the Study"). Jewish mysticism, known as the Kabbalah, took over and built upon those earlier searches for hidden meanings.
That such hidden meanings did exist, the Bible itself attests. The key was the alphabet, the twenty-two letters.
A simple encoding device, which even schoolchildren often play, is the serial substitution of letters. . . .
