That would not be a correct statement. Ignorant of what exactly?

Obviously you are not familiar with scholars and their translations. Translations are frequently "suspect" amongst the scholars in any given language. Biblical translations are a good example. Your assumption that any scholar's translation would be 100% correct is preposterous. There are soooo many problems involved in translating ancient languages, but you haven't a clue.

This is not at all clear. You are not understanding his posts.

Let's talk about stupidity......
You have not read even one of Sitchin's books, correct?
You decided he was totally full of BS because of ONE statement Hancock made.
You do not know how to read Sumerian.
You know there are not extraterrestrial life forms capable of traveling to earth because you have the most powerful telescope in the world that can see beyond our solar system.

So Sitchin is stupid and you are ???
You haven't formed an educated opinion. Your opinion is based on what ONE man said. And that ONE man could not possibly be wrong. You haven't thought for yourself.
