Zechariah Sitchin is a total, total, loon. A smart loon, maybe, but
still a loon. He makes Velikovsky look like a mainstream scientist.
Looking for scientific howlers in his book is like looking for leaves in

Around the time I read his book "The Twelfth Planet", I also read a
science fiction book which had a number of interesting parallels with it
("Inherit the Stars", by James Hogan). The funny thing was that the SF
novel made a lot more sense, and was more scientifically accurate, than
"12th Planet".
