2012 & Zecharia Sitchin

Wiki -

Zecharia Sitchin (born 1922)[1] is an author of books promoting an explanation for human origins involving ancient astronauts, amidst other aspects of pseudoscience.

Sitchin attributes the creation of the ancient Sumerian culture to the "Anunnaki" (or "Nephilim"), a race of aliens from a planet he calls Nibiru, which he believes to be in an elongated, elliptical orbit in the Earth's own Solar System and asserts that Sumerian mythology reflects this view.

His speculations are entirely discounted by professional scientists, historians, and archaeologists, who note many problems with his translations of ancient texts and with his understanding of physics.[2]
