center>VATICAN THEOLOGIAN AGREES WITH FINDINGS OF SITCHIN
SITCHIN AND VATICAN THEOLOGIAN DISCUSS UFO's, EXTRATERRESTRIALS,
ANGELS, CREATION OF MAN
Report by Zecharia Sitchin
Dialogue in Bellaria
In what must be a historic first, a high official of the Vatican and a
Hebrew scholar discussed the issue of
Extraterrestrials and the Creation of Man, and though different from
each other in upbringing, background,
religion and methodology, nevertheless arrived at common conclusions:
* Yes, Extraterrestrials can and do exist on other planets
* Yes, they can be more advanced than us
* Yes, materially, Man could have been fashioned from a
pre-existing sentient being.
The high Vatican official was Monsignor Corrado Balducci, a Catholic theologian with impressive credentials:
A member of the Curia of the Roman Catholic Church, a Prelate of the Congregation for the Evangelization of
Peoples and the Propagation of the Faith, leading exorcist of the
Archdiocese of Rome, a member of the
Vatican's Beatification Committee, an expert on Demonology and the
author of several books. Appointed in
the Vatican to deal with the issue of UFO's and Extraterrestrials, he
has made in recent years pronouncements
indicating a tolerance of the subjects; but he has never before met and
had a dialogue with a Hebrew scholar,
and gone beyond prescribed formulations to include the touchy issue of
the Creation of Man.
The Hebrew scholar was me -- Zecharia Sitchin: A researcher of ancient
civilizations, a biblical archaeologist,
a descendant of Abraham
The Monsignor and I almost met for such a dialogue last December, but it
did not come about. This time we were scheduled to meet in Bellaria,
Italy, at a conference whose theme was “The Mystery of Human
Existence.” I arrived there with my wife and a score of fans from the
USA, on March 31st,
scheduled to address the audience of over a thousand the next day. The
Monsignor was nowhere in sight; but he was there the next morning to
presentation. “I drove the whole night from Rome to hear you,” he
My talk, ably translated by my Italian editor Tuvia Fogel, included a
slide presentation that added a pictorial
dimension to the evidence from ancient times in support of Sumerian
texts, on which my eight books based the
We are not alone -- not just in the vast universe, but in our own solar
system; There is one more planet in our solar system, orbiting beyond
Pluto but nearing Earth periodically; Advanced "Extraterrestrials” --
the Sumerians called them Anunnaki, the Bible Nefilim -- started to
visit our planet some 450,000 years ago; And, some 300,000 years ago,
they engaged in genetic engineering to upgrade Earth's hominids and
fashion Homo sapiens, the Adam. In that, they acted as Emissaries for
Universal Creator -- God.
"We have much to talk about,” Msgr. Balducci said to me as he came
forward to congratulate me on my presentation; "I have great esteem for
your scholarship," he said.
We returned to the hotel for lunch. Our table was surrounded in a
semi-circle by my American fans, intent on not missing a word of the
forthcoming dialogue. In the hours-long session, Msgr. Balducci
outlined the positions he was going to state, from a prepared text, in
his talk the next day. While my approach was based on physical
evidence, his was a purely Roman Catholic theological-philosophical one,
spiritual aspects. Yet, our conclusions converged.
Msgr. Balducci's Positions
ON UFO's. "There must be something in it." The hundreds and thousands
eyewitness reports leave no room for denying that there is a measure of
truth in them, even allowing for optical illusions, atmospheric
phenomena and so on. As a Catholic theologian such witnessing cannot be
dismissed. "Witnessing is one way of transmitting truth, and in the
case of the Christian religion, we are talking about a Divine Revelation
in which witnessing is crucial to the credibility of our faith.”
ON LIFE ON OTHER PLANETS: “That life may exist on other planets is
certainly possible... The Bible does not rule out that possibility. On
the basis of scripture and on the basis of our knowledge of God's
omnipotence, His wisdom being limitless, we must affirm that life on
other planets is possible." Moreover, this is not only possible, but
also credible and even probable. '"Cardinal Nicolo Cusano (1401-1464)
wrote that there is not a
single star in the sky about which we can rule out the existence of
life, even if different from ours.”
ON INTELLIGENT EXTRATERRESTRIALS: "When I talk about Extraterrestrials,
must think of beings who are like us -- more probably, beings more
advanced than us, in that their nature is an association of a material
part and a spiritual part, a body and a soul, although in different
proportions than human beings on Earth."
Angels are beings who are
purely spiritual, devoid of bodies, while we are made up of spirit and
matter but still at a low level. "It is entirely credible that in the
enormous distance between
Angels and humans, there could be found some middle stage, that is
beings with a body like ours but more elevated spiritually. If such
intelligent beings really exist on other planets, only science will be
able to prove; but in spite of what some people think, we would be in a
position to reconcile their existence with the Redemption that Christ
has brought us.”
The Anunnaki and the Creation of Man
Well then, I asked Msgr. Balducci, does it mean that my presentation was
no great revelation to you? We appear to agree, I said, that more
advanced extraterrestrials can exist, and I use science to evidence
coming to Earth ...I then quote the Sumerian texts that say that the
Anunnaki (“Those who from heaven to Earth came”) genetically improved an
existing being on Earth to create the being that the Bible calls Adam.,p>
My conclusion regarding your presentation, Msgr. Balducci answered, is
that more than anything else your whole approach is based on physical
evidence, it concerns itself with matter, not with spirit. This is an
important distinction, "because if this distinction is made, I can bring
up the view of the great theologian,Professor Father Marakoff, who is
still alive and is greatly respected by the Church. He formulated the
hypothesis that when God created Man and put the soul into him, perhaps
what is meant is not that Man was created from mud or lime, but from
something pre-existing, even from a sentient being capable of feeling
perception. So the idea of taking a pre-man or hominid and creating
someone who is aware of himself is something that Christianity is coming
around to…The key is the distinction between the material body and the
soul granted by God."
From Anunnaki to God
Yes, I responded to the Vatican theologian, in my writings I deal with
the physical evidence; but already in my first book (The 12th Planet),
the very last sentence of the last paragraph raises the question: If the
Extraterrestrials "created" us, who created them on their planet?
From this my own thinking and the contents of my subsequent books
evolved toward the spiritual or "divine" aspects. The Anunnaki, I have
explained, were just emissaries (and that is what the Hebrew word
Malachim, translated Angels, means). They thought that it was their
decision to come here for selfish reasons and to fashion us because they
needed workers; but in truth they only carried out the Almighty God's
wishes and plans.
If such Extraterrestrials were so involved, Msgr. Balducci said, even by
your own interpretation they had to do with Man's physics, body and
rationality: but God alone had to do with the Soul!
My second book, that deals with Man's aspiration to ascend the heavens,
is titled The Stairway to Heaven, I told Msgr, Balducci, "it seems to me
that we are ascending the same stairway to heaven, though from different
steps," I said.
We ended the dialogue as friends, determined to stay in touch and
