It is with great sadness that I have to report the passing away of Zecharia Sitchin.
Zecharia Sitchin passed away on the morning of October 9th from undisclosed causes. A small, private family funeral was held the next day.
The family asks that you respect its privacy during this difficult time and refrain from contacting family members directly.
Zecharia Sitchin (born July 11, 1920 – died October 9, 2010) was an author of books promoting an explanation for human origins involving ancient astronauts.
Sitchin attributes the creation of the ancient Sumerian culture to the Anunnaki, which he claims to be a race of extra-terrestrials 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.
We would like to extend our condolences to his family and friends.
Rest in peace Zecharia. Thank you for all you have done for humanity. We will miss you sorely!
