Thank yo Charles. I got what I was looking for in your last response:
"In general, Sitchin often confuses later role playing with the original "primal scene" "
I have often thought that it is darn near impossible to be sure about ancient dating. Sitchin himself admits to a time frame of a few hundred thousand years ago. How can he be sure what time those clay tablets are referring to?
"earlier event, and one that likely involved a meteorite impact rather than a nuclear detonation and alien activity. However, in myth, a meterorite could be considered a type of "god" or a judgment of the gods."
So meteorite impact would be your preference. This is, I guess, as reasonable as anything. And more likely.
Thanks. I just wanted to know your view of Sitchin.
