Theorists, those prone to the more conspiratorial variety, are making the most of this weekend, as they think it will be their last. The long reaching “Nibiru” myths, so they say, will result in the complete devastation of planet Earth tomorrow. So take it easy. Eat that extra slice of cake. Call your mom and tell her you love her…. Or not.
The last “end of the world as we know it” date was September 23rd. We survived that one. Yet the planet Nibiru, the one that is supposedly about to impact earth and kill us all, didn’t come in September. Now the fear is that Earth will be crippled with earthquakes that will shake the planet apart.
NASA is, of course, downplaying these claims. Though they do so begrudgingly, NASA has pointed out that a planet the size of Nibiru, if it were to come near earth, would have a gravitational pull strong enough to pull off our moon.
Nibiru, or Planet X as some call it, is supposed to orbit the sun every 3,600 years. Some even claim to have captured images of the mystery planet.
“Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax,” NASA said. “Obviously, it does not exist.”
Dr David Morrison, from the NASA Ames Research Centre, said Nibiru would “eject the moon from Earth’s orbit.”
Those who believe in the planet’s existence simply claim that NASA is lying. Their denials are meant to keep the population under control until the end, they claim.
Dr Morrison’s, though, spoke on the “Big Picture Science Radio Show,” a podcast for the Search for Extraterrestrial Life Institute (SETI) website.
“If a big object was coming into the solar system, its gravity would perturb the orbits of the planets, and we would have detected that long before it came close to the Earth,” he said.
“The planet’s orbits are very regulated, and, if some massive object came along every so often and came through the inner solar system, it would all be screwed up, the planets would not be coplanar.” […] “The moon would have been ejected, and obviously that is not the case.”
The new theories about Nibiru seem to be coming from Planetxnews.com. “Global seismic activity reaches a peak in the second two weeks of November moving into December 2017,” claims writer Terral Croft.
Christian numerologist David Meade has also been stoking the flames. “The predicted backside alignment quake event is scheduled for November 19, 2017, when the Earth passes behind the sun relative to the Black Star,” he claims.
“The world is not ending, but the world as we know it is ending,” he said.
