I leave tomorrow for the east coast – specifically, Providence, RI, for the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) and the Near East Archaeological Society (NEAS). Those conferences are followed by that of IBR (Institute for Biblical Research), ASOR (American Schools of Oriental Research), and the big one, the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL). If you want an idea of what goes on at these sorts of meetings, you can check out the ETS program and search the SBL online program.
I hope to get some pictures for the blog and to blog about some of the sessions (including my own).
What do Mesopotamian texts say about “nibiru”? Does what Zecharia Sitchin say about it demonstrable from the tablets themselves? Is it a planet beyond Pluto? Does it cycle through our solar system every 3600 years? Is it a planet inhabited by the Anunnaki? Are the Anunnaki connected with it in any way?
In order, that would be: Plenty; no; no; no; no; and no.
Read about nibiru here in an old (2003) PDF of mine on the subject.
I noticed that the Hebrew font didn’t come through, so I reposted the post and included a link to a PDF file that explains Barker’s problem. Just scroll down.
Where did we come in? Check the TOP 50 Biblioblog listing here. A biblioblog is a blog that has something to do with biblical studies.
