The term "Nibiru" comes from the Sumerian cuneiform stone tablets and writings that are 6,000 years old. The term Nibiru means "Planet of the crossing". The Sumerian culture is the first recorded civilization on earth, then called Sumerian, today's Iraq. It has been known throughout ensuing time periods as Sumer, Mesopotamia, and Babylon, all the same location for where earth's first culture shows up on earth. The Sumerian Culture is the oldest known civilization we know of based on the artifacts and monuments that still remain.
Stories throughout the english version of the bible, today's modern version, speak of many events that changed the coarse of humanity in our past. If we look at the stories in the bible as historical accounts of what actually took place, then we need to research the origins of these stories. The hebrew version of the bible, known as the Old Testament, which is a much older version than the english translation, is derived from the stories of the Sumerian Culture. When we trace the origins of the Old testament we can see that it is also based on previous translations from subsequent older languages throughout history.
OK, you've shown us you can plagiarize. What else?

Wrong read up your definition of "plagiarize".

"The Sumerian culture, the first civilization to invent writing as a complete written language, recorded stories that have been preserved through the modern day biblical passages found in the Old and New testament. All of which speak of a time when man lived among their living gods here on earth. The Sumerians had 7 sacred tablets that explained our creation. These stories preserved in stone, are now told to us in the form of the english version, "7 days of creation".

They also had a story of a great flood, and how one of the Gods choose to give a certain Sumerian man knowledge on how to build a boat that could withstand the great flood. All the stories in the bible are just translated versions of the original Sumerian Texts that we still have today preserved in stone, unchanged.

The Sumerians tell us that their Gods, taught them all the amazing knowledge that the Sumerian Culture possessed, 6,000 years ago. They called their Gods, "anunnaki" which is translated to mean "those who from heaven to earth came"..

They have left us artifacts and stone tablet pictures that say the anunnaki came from another planet within our own solar system. They call this planet "Nibiru" which is where the anunnaki come from, according to the Sumerian translations. The Sumerians say that the anunnaki live on Nibiru, which has a 3,600 year orbit around our sun. All the other information they state including the color of the outer planets, and even the distance between the planets, has been proven to be accurate. We sent space probes out in the 70's that took the first pictures in color, which confirmed the Sumerian descriptions.

The Sumerians were the first to invent over 100 of the first's for a modern culture. All academic references to the origins of writing, math, science, medicine, astronomy, lead to the Sumerian Culture and their amazing artifacts. We still use their math, medicine, science, time, music, astronomy, and many other fields, even to this day."

Probably you already know of this movie.

Um, no, the "big bang," which is rather erroneously titled, is the best explanation for the evidence, but the origin point is still up for much debate. Two different notions. His caricature representation of it was not accurate, thus, he made up the myth. Also known as a straw man fallacy.

Um, you are still making the mistake of asserting that evolution has direction and that modern rats were around 160 million years ago. Wow, can't you at least get some education before attempting to address matters of science?

Drive by a steep mountainside with loose rocks. There is a random chance one may land on you, but the physical reality is your passing triggered it, adding to another physical action causing such to occur "by chance". The rock may have fallen at another time, but you became part of the local forces when you entered the area.
Always with the rocks....

You are aware how rfid identifies, or how gps is used to locate?

You basically activate something that produces a unique EM signature or discrete frequencies in a pattern.

You emit such, and your brain also does.

You just don't know it.

Such things are used in quality control, also.

One moment a construct can be running down an assembly line, or even running loose, laughing and having fun, making fun of the manufacturer, and just overall having a good old time being obnoxious.

Then it passes the QA station.

Don't think things work like that in the universe that produced you?

I had to put tape on the mirrors in my house, after talking with Christians, so I don't accidentally walk through into another dimension.

Do you think if a man is standing in the middle of the forest speaking and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

What if someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?
