Ancient Astronaut Theory

Ancient Astronaut Theory is a theory that humankind has been visited by an advanced extraterrestrial race or even several races thousands of years ago and still continues to be visited.

The followers of Ancient Astronaut Theory refer to ancient texts, ancient history and evidence they find at various archaeological sites as proof of those visitations.

They believe that the extraterrestrial races visited the Earth even before it was populated and that it is possible, that even the creation of the human race itself was a result of the extraterrestrial interference.

According to Sitchin, Nibiro has been previously unknown because it has an highly elongated elliptical orbit and comes close to the Sun only once in every 3600 years. In his theory, he referenced numerous Sumerian and Akkadian clay tablets that he had studied all his life.
