In this episode Dr. Miano from the World of Antiquity YouTube channel is here to walk us through the subject of Nibiru and its context in ancient Mesopotamian texts and astronomy.
What is it? What does it mean? In this episode we sift through erroneous novices like Zecharia Sitchin and the misinformation and oftentimes lies that they created in order to get to the heart of the truth.
Nibiru (also transliterated Neberu, Nebiru) is a term in the Akkadian language, translating to "crossing" or "point of transition", especially of rivers, i.e. river crossings or ferry-boats. However, the nature of the "crossing" in astronomy has "long been a source of confusion in scholarly and popular opinion".
