Krupps letter:-
"It is a delight to hear from you. I have all of your books, have read most of them, and have listened to you on the radio a couple of times. I have of course dedicated thought to the arguments you have developed. Although your handling of the data has inspired my skepticism, please let me acknowledge the courtesy and logic of your complaint about the way I evaluated your Twelfth Planet notions in my monthly column on astronomy and culture in Sky & Telescope. You are correct to point out that I was hasty in offering Sagittarius as an option for the imagery on the Akkadian cylinder seal VA/243. Certainly we cannot regard the figure as an accurate map of the Teapot with Jupiter brewing inside. Of course, there are other candidates among the stars. A planet could have been in the vicinity of Leo, for example, enclosed by Regulus, gamma Leonis, zeta Leonis, epsilon Leonis, alpha Cancri, 38 Cancri, delta Cancri, zeta Hydrae, epsilon Hydrae, and iota Hydra. Given the lack of precision on the cylinder seal, that set of stars works pretty well. If they be unacceptable, however, we can alternatively imagine a planet in a larger enclosure”

Sitchin's response was "It truly chagrins me that someone like you, in searching for explanations for the seal’s depictions (you list some of the most improbable ones in your letter), would not even consider our solar system as a possibility. This can only stem from an absolute refusal to accept the Extraterrestrial nature of the Anunnaki. But why would someone – I am sure you are included – who would deem it possible that Man from Earth would one day travel to another planet, deem it totally unacceptable that someone from another planet might have come here? If not scientific but religious objections lie therein, please read my dialogue with a Vatican theologian on my website SITCHIN.com"

please note sitchin says "This can only stem from an absolute refusal to accept the Extraterrestrial nature of the Anunnaki"
somebody tell me what normally happens to the credibility of serious astronomers that Start claiming that the gods were spacemen. I'm not surprised mr krupp answered indicating an absolute refusal to accept extraterrestrial gods. Would you on that basis. It's very easy to throw stones when you have no glass left in your own greenhouse

And the n.a.s.a. scientists only agreed with his views on everyday stellar events. The mainstream stuff. But what would you expect from n.a.s.a. an outright admission that the man in charge of their funding is deluding himself by being christian.

Mr sitchin has no linguists who agree with his translations. He's the only one that i know of who thinks that a 6000 year old story Holds a hidden meaning that indicates life on earth didn't begin as the vast majority of experts say it did.

I have four different translations of the enuma elish. None of them mention spaceships or astronauts or anything like it.

For those who object to my position on sitchin i would say this. I personally do believe that at some time in the past there was a possibility of intervention from extraterrestrials. But it wasn't in sumer and it wasn't in babylon and it wasn't at troy either for that matter
