Excerpts from Passing Time on Planet X
Alan Alford regards the origin of the gods as a crucial issue, which needs to be resolved as a matter of priority before presenting his physical evidence of their activities on Earth. He uses this chapter to corroborate the Sumerian claims that the gods came from a planet called Nibiru, which they and later civilisations depicted as a winged disc. Amazingly, the Sumerian descriptions of that planet match precisely the specification of "Planet X" (the Tenth Planet), which is currently being sought by astronomers in the depths of our own Solar System. Why has Planet X not been seen in recent times? Alford draws together the views of modern and ancient astronomy, which both suggest a highly elliptical, comet-like orbit, which takes Planet X into the depths of space, well beyond the orbit of Pluto.
...The most dramatic part of this chapter deals with the legendary flood, which Alan Alford claims was a genuine historical event. He provides overwhelming evidence that this catastrophe occurred 13,000 years ago and explains how Nibiru/Planet X could have caused the Flood as a result of a rare alignment of planets which forced it into an unusual orbital pass between the Earth and Venus. Alford states:
The failure to recognise the Flood cataclysm... lies in the failure of scientists to find any plausible cause of the devastation which we have just examined. However, the deciphering of the Enuma Elish and the evidence concerning Nibiru/Planet X, do now offer a possible cause for the Flood.
