By day, Erik Poltorak is a successful stock broker in Los Angeles; by night, he is the webmaster for www.sitchin.com, the official website of author, Zecharia Sitchin. Erik began studying the Bible in Hebrew at an early age. By 1997, he began to read and hear Mr. Sitchin, who specializes in comparative studies of the Ancient World. Erik was intrigued by Sitchin's perspective that the key to humanity's past lies in ancient Mesopotamia, particularly the written descriptions of extraterrestrial "gods." Astonishingly, much of the Old Testament seems to be derived from the tales of these Sumerians!
Erik's own research was enriched by his several group trips alongside Mr. Sitchin, including treks to England, Malta, Mexico and Italy. Erik's main focus of study is looking at the first occurrences of themes, stories and language found in the archeological record, and then comparing them to the historical record. The consistencies between them may reveal our true history.
