In case you’ve been on holiday and missed it, a hidden death planet in our solar system is due to destroy us all in an apocalypse scheduled for this Saturday.
So don’t bother starting any long-term projects, would be our advice.
The evidence? Well, there’s not really any evidence, but lots of Christian conspiracy theorists are very excited about the date – led by oddball David Meade, author of ‘Planet X: The 2017 Arrival.’
Meade and other YouTube weirdoes believe that a hidden planet – Nibiru – will appear in the sky this Saturday, heralding the end of the world.
Now some Christian numerologists claim there’s proof in the dates of the American solar eclipse (August 21) and August 25 when Hurricane Harvey hit.
Chuck Campbell wrote, ‘One popular Bible quote currently making the rounds as evidence is Luke 21: 25-26, which says:
’25: There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’
”26: Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.’
‘Footnote: The eclipse was August 21, Hurricane Harvey hit Texas on August 25 and flooded Houston on August 26 – Luke 21: 25-26 … See how that works?’
Author David Meade has been single-handedly pushing a theory that a hidden ‘death planet’ (Nibiru) is about to reveal itself on September 23 – before killing us all.
Soon after that, the planet (along with a shower of other debris) will pass our planet, causing supervolcanoes to erupt, tsunamis and mass death – except for government employees who will (of course) flee into underground bunkers.
(We should point out here that there’s no evidence for this, at all, bar some cryptic nonsense Meade has dug up in the Bible – but since when has that stopped a good conspiracy theory?)
Here’s why you shouldn’t worry about Nibiru
Nibiru (or Planet X) was widely predicted to hit our planet in December 2016, and before that in April 2016, and December 2015.
Are you seeing a pattern here?
Prior to that, it was predicted to smash into our planet to coincide with the Mayan apocalypse in 2012 – and before that, Nancy Lieder, an American website writer who claimed to have an alien implant in her brain, predicted it would destroy the world in 2003.
Nibiru does not exist. It has never been seen on any telescope, and no credible scientist has ever confirmed its existence.
NASA has thoroughly debunked the Nibiru myth via its Beyond 2012 page, saying, ‘Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims.
‘If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye.’
Soviet-born American writer Zecharia Sitchin first wrote about Nibiru in his hit 1976 book ‘The 12th Planet’ where he claimed it was inhabited by a race of ‘ancient aliens’ – the Annunaki – who had created the human race.
Sitchin’s work remains in print and has a devoted following around the world.
Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual says, ‘Zecharia Sitchin claims that Nibiru collided with a planet called Tiamat that was situated between Mars and Jupiter. The result was the creation of the asteroid belt and planet Earth.’
‘Nibiru is populated by the Anunnaki, an advanced humanoid race, who visited Earth thousands of years to mine gold in Africa. As an outcome of needing workers to carry out these mining operations they used genetics to create Homo Sapiens.’
‘The popularity of these type of ideas makes it certain that every new discovery by our spaceships will be be minutely studied for any evidence of Nibiru, or any other similar body that might be populated by extraterrestrials.’
