Nibiru Conspiracy 2024

In the first quarter of the 21st century social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, TikTok and several others have enabled a vast number of misinformed, ignorant, and greedy humans to pervert and corrupt countless topics that have become prominent in the modern zeitgeist. Perhaps one of the topics most affected, in a significantly negative way, is the inquiry into potential paleo-contact with extraterrestrials by our ancient ancestors. In today’s pop-culture this potential paleo-contact has become known as the ancient astronaut theory. A significant underpinning of the theory is the work of Zecharia Sitchin. Regardless of one’s thoughts about Sitchin’s translations, it is an undeniable fact that he introduced, to the general public, the concept that the gods of the Sumerian pantheon, known as the Anunnaki, were actually the extraterrestrial progenitors of modern humans. A facet of his argument is that the Anunnaki were originally from a planet named Nibiru, which has remained undiscovered in our solar system. And it is the proliferation of a conspiracy theory concerning Nibiru that will be the focus of this presentation.
