Introduction to Maldek
"Maldek" is one of several now popular names given to
the ancient fifth planet of our solar system, whose
orbit used to lie between that of Mars and Jupiter.
At some point in the past,
it was destroyed, leaving what we now
know as the asteroid belt in its former orbit.
What caused the destruction of this planet?
When did it occur?
Was it populated at the time?
What impact did this event have on
the rest of the solar system and its planets?
On this page can be found many different theories
and bits of information on this subject,
from writings both ancient and modern.
The reader is encouraged to explore,
make up his or her own mind, and exercise
his or her inescapable freedom to choose what to believe in.
The most common constant in these various theories and
explanations is the approach of yet another celestial body
which had a hand in Maldek's destruction. The most unique
name for this other celestial body seems to be the one
given to it by researcher and author Zecharia Sitchin:
Clues & Histories from the Sumerian Texts
"The 4,500-year-old depiction, however, also insists
that there was - or has been - another major planet
between Mars and Jupiter. It is, as we shall show,
...the planet of the Nefilim."
Book One of "The Earth Chronicles" by Zecharia Sitchin
offers one of the more complicated and detailed explanations
of what happened to the fifth planet
and how the asteroid belt was formed from its remains.
Sitchin's theory stems from the deciphering of documents, texts,
tablets, and pictographs unearthed from ancient civilizations
in Mesopotamia including those of Sumer & Babylon.
To those ancient authors, these were not theories,
but historical facts imparted to them by their Nefilim gods,
who used vehicles to traverse between Earth and the heavens
The planetary numbering system inherited by Sitchin is a bit
confusing, since, in addition to the nine planets recognized
by our science today, the ancient texts also count the sun
and moon, bringing Sitchin's count up to eleven. Maldek,
referred to by the name "Tiamat" in Sitchin's sources,
then competes for the honour of being "The 12th Planet"
with Nibiru, the other celestial body responsible for
splitting it apart.
Sitchin devotes an entire chapter of his book to his
interpretation of the "Epic of Creation", translated from
ancient Babylonian tablets which describe the events up to
and including the biblical creation of heaven, Earth, and
Man. To the Babylonians, the epic was known by its opening
phrase "Enuma Elish".
Each of the Babylonian gods was associated with
a planet or other celestial body in the solar system,
and while the epic describes the interaction of these
characters using emotions and human dysfunction at the
heart of their conflicts and battles, Sitchin chooses
to interpret them not as gods but as the planets themselves,
thus the epic describes the creation of our solar system
and, among other things, the events which turned Maldek
into an asteroid belt.
Sitchin's version basically has Nibiru making two passes
at Maldek. The first has Nibiru's moons hitting Maldek
and dispersing its satellites while the two planets
themselves narrowly miss each other. Nibiru then slingshots
around our sun, and comes back to break off half of the
already fractured Maldek and bulldoze the pieces to
create the asteroid belt. The other half of Maldek is
hit by Nibiru's last remaining moon and carried to a
new orbit. Interestingly, the epic is very specific
regarding flashing of energy and "lightning" occuring
between the two planets, which Sitchin presents as
weather anomalies caused by the planets' unhealthy proximity
to each other.
When did the destruction of Maldek occur? Was it in the
nebulous formation period of the solar system, when the
planets were still malleable? Or did it occur in more
recent times, after life, civilization, and humanoid
war and space travel had had a chance to sprout on
or colonize one or more of the solar systems planets?
The "Enuma Elish" epic undoubtedly reveals important clues to
some of the events in our solar system. But like the characters in
Image of the Fendahl
(Doctor Who story no. 94), Sitchin seems to be trying
too hard to make this piece of the puzzle fill in all of
the blanks and explain everything. Sitchin would have us
believe that the depths of the Pacific Ocean are the results
of Earth being formed out of the remains of this second
half of Maldek.
The Pacific is deep, but not deep enough for us to believe
that half of the planet is missing underneath the water. After all,
how precarious is the bit that holds Hawaii up above sea level?
We need to remind ourselves that Earth's outer crust is still
intact under the Pacific, and there's a whole lot of magma
and core under that.
One of the biggest missing factors that Sitchin may be
overlooking in his first Earth Chronicles book, is the
far greater proximity of our Solar system in those days
to the Sirius binary star system. I've heard it said that
our sun was basically the outermost third star of a trinary
Sirius star system in those days
Royal Priest Research, Recording #9: "Earth Inception"),
and that Sirius A and B shared about
17 more planets in various orbits about themselves,
any of which could have had an impact in our solar system
or played a role in the epic in the days when Maldek was still
in one piece.
It is also interesting
to note that, when the Babylonians made their copy of this
epic from the earlier Sumerian versions, they took all
references to the original "heroic" god of the tale Ninurta
and his Nibiru planetary counterpart, and changed
them to match the name of their ruling deity of the time:
"Marduk", proving that historical records of any era are
often politically bent by the victorious.
How many other edits did this tale have to endure between
the time that the events happened and the time that the
Sumerians imprinted their version in the clay? How much of the
tale was anthropomorphized for the benefit of the primitive human
understanding of the time? And are the war-like events best
interpreted as occuring between physical planets all the way
through the story, or should some passages be better interpreted
as occuring between the people of those planets and the
extraterrestrial "god" at the head of their social structure?

"In those ancient days there were really only three planets that could
support physical life: one was Mars, one was Earth and one was Maldek,
which is now your asteroid belt. There were no humans on those planets.
They were primarily ET territory."
"This was a common theme throughout the extraterrestrial interaction with
ancient Earth. There were gods assigned to the Earth territory and gods
assigned to territory of the heavens which, of course,
would be Mars and Maldek. "
"Ancient humankind was never a victim of these ETs.
All beings create their own reality
for their own purposes of learning and growth,
and ancient humankind was the same way."

As always, the high spiritual-growth / self-improvement value of
Lyssa's material puts it in a class of its own, and so it rises to the
top of this list. It is interesting to note here, that Earth and Maldek
exist separately at the same time, each with civilizations on them.
"The pull of the gigantic gas planet, Jupiter, pulled the comet off course.
The ice comet then headed directly for Maldek.
The citizens of that planet asked the Martians for help.
Even though they were at odds with each other,
they allowed some of the Maldekians to move to the Martian underground.
The comet came so close to Maldek that the planet got caught between
the gravitational pull of Jupiter, Mars, and the comet.
This caused the planet to explode,
leaving an asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
The explosion pushed the ice comet close enough to Mars to rip the
atmosphere off that planet, leaving only an extremely thin atmosphere.
The explosion also pulled Mars further away from the sun.
The comet then continued on toward the Earth....."
This version of Maldek's destruction involves a race of
Reptilian E.T.'s playing a sinister game of billiards with the
planets of our solar system!
Note here that Maldek's demise is the result of primarily gravitational
forces, but may have been worse had it not been for miscalculations
in the trajectory of the hollow "comet" planet that stands in for
Nibiru in this version of the tale.
Interestingly, Earth does not form from half of Maldek's remains,
as Zecharia Sitchin postulated. Instead,
Earth is already in existance, and the Maldek incident brings about the
creation of Venus instead.... and interestingly, the portion of the
"Enuma Elish" Epic of Creation that deals with what was created out
of the intact half of Maldek/Tiamat is vague enough to suggest it
could have been either Earth or Venus, or perhaps even a third
alternative that has yet to be rediscovered.
Also discussed in this version is a galactic "Federation",
with the citizens of Mars, Maldek,
and a planet around the star Atlas in the Pleiadies Cluster
refusing to join. The Federation was supposedly an alliance against
the reptoid / dinoid forces, but before investing too much fear and
prejudice in that dynamic, check out the role-reversal in one of the
other versions of Maldek history below....
Wikipedia Terminology for 3 different Maldek Theories
This conservative Wikipedia page states that the idea of
the breakup of a fifth planet in our solar system to form the asteroid belt
is officially known in science as the "disruption" theory.
It contrasts this with something known as the "Planet V" theory,
which supposes that a fifth planet existed between Mars and the asteroid belt,
and that this planet may have "crashed" into the sun. "Planet V" theory
does not explain the creation of the asteroid belt,
or very much of anything other than perhaps the Late Heavy Bombardment
period of Earth/solar geology.
- Excerpt from
Lunar-Gate: The 51st Greatest Conspiracy of All Time:
"As for the cratering on the moon,
[author William L. Brian II] pulls a theory apparently
out of the heavenly firmament, explaining that those
familiar features are in fact the handiwork of
"sophisticated weapons" used in "a terrible war
involving the moon," which took place
"less than 30,000 years ago."
....Brian describes a Star Wars-like scenario in which
a hollow planet between Mars and Jupiter was
obliterated by high-tech particle beams,
leaving behind our latter-day asteroid belt.
That asteroid belt planet
("hereafter referred to as Maldek," he writes,
somewhat inexplicably) had a moon, which, thanks to
"great levitating or gravity-inducing beams"
was transported into the orbit of
its new host: Planet Earth. "
This version of Maldek's destruction adds to the theory that there
was more going on than random collisions between celestial bodies,
and that the conflicts between the "gods" in the "Enuma Elish"
epic may have been as emotional and socially motivated as literally
described. It also suggests that the "lightning" flashes between
Maldek and Nibiru may have been more than just side-effects
of weather anomalies....

"Occurrences in Space",
originally from Sheldon Nidle's book.
Source Of Information: "YOU ARE BECOMING A GALACTIC HUMAN"
by Sheldon Nidle and Virginia Essene
Virginia: Could you explain about the planet Maldek
and how it was destroyed?
Washta: These survivors of the destruction of Earthís biosphere
by the pre-cetaceans had fled to what we call Maldek
(in the dinoid and reptoid language it has a name that is
very complicated to even spell in English).
What we would like to state is that a vast series of wars
existed in your solar system throughout this time frame
between humans and other groups.
The most important result of these wars led
the dinoids and reptoids to settle or inhabit Maldek
after they were forced to flee from Earth, Mars and Venus.
In order to come back into your solar system
in a controlling way, they used this Maldek planet
as a base or capital headquarters in their attempt
to colonize, maintain, and control the solar system.
Therefore, the galactic human forces decided it was
essential that their base be destroyed in order for a
human re-colonization program to succeed. In order to
accomplish this, it was necessary to bring in
an *INSTRUMENT* (emphasis mine)
of war that would be sufficient to destroy it.
Virginia: Was this instrument a battle planet?
Washta: Yes, that was the solution. This battle planet
was nearly four times the size of Earthís diameter
or 29,000 miles across.
Virginia: Okay, and after it destroyed Maldek
(from which the Asteroid Belt was created)
what happened to the battle planet?
I understand that it still exists today.
Washta: Yes, it still exists.
It was put into a large scale orbit roughly
6.8 billion miles across at its farthest point
from the Sun. It comes in on a 3,600 year cycle
where it crosses almost through Mercuryís orbit
and then heads back-out. This was done to assure
future protection for your planet and solar system
because of the past murderous invasions by dinoids
and other groups that completely destroyed
both your Mars and your Venus colonies.
Because of that past destruction in your solar system,
the Galactic Federation has had to expend a great effort
to bring human colonization back into your solar system.
It is a safety device. This battle planet patrols out there
as a constant reminder to potential murderers that there is
indeed protection for this solar system.
Virginia: Yes, in the Bible it talks about Wormwood and
of course other people have written about the twelfth planet.
Would we understand this to be the same vehicle?
Washta: This is the same vehicle.
Here again, the Nibiru planet is a gigantic "Death Star", designed
for war. This version of the story does match Sitchin's version from the
"Epic of Creation" in that the Nibiru planet achieves an extreme
elliptical orbit around our sun that takes 3,600 years to complete.
Note the role-reversal that occurred in this version of the
story. Was Maldek inhabited by reptoids and dinoids who were destroyed
by humanoids, or was Maldek inhabited by humanoids and destroyed by reptoids
and dinoids? Did control of Maldek, and perhaps Nibiru, swing back and forth
between the separate "passes" recorded in Sumerian texts? Perhaps,
as was the case with the Babylonian god Marduk, there are those who
were keen to rewrite this tale with themselves as the victors.
"Formal Extraterrestrial Contact: The Ashtar Command".
This lengthy page concerning various motivations towards ET contact
has this tidbit to say about the planet Maldek:
"Draconians walk on two legs but are best described as
reptilian in appearance. They have a history of conquest
in the galaxy. They reportedly occupied the Earth
millions of years ago (among other things running off
a small Arcturian outpost) as well as a planet possibly
named Maldek in our Solar System, which (after a major war)
we now know as the Asteroid Belt."
It goes on to suggest that these Draconians have since made spiritual
progress and joined the humanoid "Federation" which the authors believe
have humanity's and the Earth's best interests at heart.
"Now, those groups do not exist now in the same way they
existed then. They have evolved also.
So it is not like the same energy is still working with you..."
Royal Priest Research, Recording #9: "Earth Inception")
Just a reminder to not get wrapped up in old conflicts that
ought to rest in peace. Today is a new day, and there are
much grander relationships with the rest of the universe
to participate in....
"In addition, Hubble recently investigated
one of the largest asteroids, Vesta,
and found evidence of differentiated layers
similar to the terrestrial planets,
distinctive light and dark areas like the face of our moon,
and a geology similar to the Earth,
including evidence of ancient lava flows. "
