FEARS of the so-called Nibiru cataclysm have caught the attention of popular conspiracy theorist Russia who has finally revealed what he knows about Planet X.
Purveyors of the Planet X conspiracy theory, also known as the Nibiru or Wormwood cataclysm, believe a rogue planetary system is on a collision course with Earth.
Nibiru is believed by many to orbit the Sun every 3,600 years, each time bringing with it widespread chaos and destruction across the surface of the planet.
But not every conspiracy theorist searching for the signs of the impending end times believes in Nibiru, and Russia appears to be in that camp of conspiracists.
Silly fringe theories about Planet X—an imagined planet typically named Nibiru that is on course to hit or pass by Earth with disastrous consequences—are the kind of thing normally relegated to vanity press-published books or those tabloids you browse in the supermarket checkout aisle. On Wednesday, they made it into Fox News, with the added caveat that maybe some other Biblical catastrophe could surprise us instead.
The Planet X theory first emerged in 1995 and is usually evidenced by tortured interpretations of religious texts, with vague suppositions that NASA either hasn’t detected this ominous celestial body or is actively covering up its existence to prevent widespread panic. In an article filed to Fox’s website on Wednesday, this time the prophesied doomsday comes courtesy of an article in British rag the Daily Express citing numerologist David Meade’s interpretation of the Bible’s Revelation 12:1-2:
Is The Rapture finally here? One Christian numerologist says a biblical sign strongly suggests it.
The passage reads: “And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of 12 stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.”
In the passage, the woman is represented as Virgo.
According to Meade, the alignment represents “the Lion of the tribe of Judah,” marking the Rapture, the belief that Christ will bring the faithful into paradise prior to a period of tribulation on earth that precedes the end of time.
Meade is apparently telling every gullible soul with the time to listen that Planet X will appear above the Earth on 2018. This will trigger the Rapture, because the planet’s massive gravitational forces will cause volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, and all that other bad stuff you see in Roland Emmerich movies.
Author David Meade has predicted that the ‘End of Days’ will begin later this month as the Earth moves into a seven-year period called the “great tribulation.”
Meade says that as part of the great tribulation there will be a heavenly war on Earth which will see the Antichrist rise out of the new world order.
NASA repeatedly has said Planet X is a hoax.
To clarify, NASA has said that Caltech researchers analyzing the orbit of objects in the Kuiper Belt have found some evidence that there is indeed a large planet in orbit around the Sun beyond Neptune that could be as large as 10 Earth masses. (This is also sometimes referred to by the nickname of “Planet X” in the media, though the conspiracy theories predate any scientific evidence of its existence.) The existence of this planet is merely theoretical, though similar analysis of Uranus’ orbit laid the basis to first observe Neptune in 1846.
If it does exist, NASA says the available evidence indicates the unknown planet would be “about 20 times farther from the sun on average than Neptune” with an orbital period of 10,000-20,000 Earth years. That’s way further away than Pluto, which no one really seems concerned about smacking Earth in the face.
NASA and many others have made it clear repeatedly that there is no rogue planet on a course with the inner solar system. There is, evidence, however, of an unseen planet far beyond the orbit of Pluto that is sometimes referred to as Planet X or Planet 9. This evidence points to a large object in the far reaches of the outer solar system that may be gravitationally influencing other objects in the region, far, far away from Earth.
And by the way, this evidence also indicates that if there is a large planet on the edge of the solar system, it too is orbiting the sun in such a way that keeps it always very distant from us. It isn’t making a run at Earth anytime soon.
Those are the facts as we understand them based upon the best available empirical and scientific evidence.
That doesn’t stop numerous Nibiru believers from conflating the actual Planet X that may exist with the fictional Planet X they believe is roaming the solar system billions of miles away in defiance of the laws of physics.
It’s also a fact, though, that almost nobody thinks the Earth will cease to exist on Monday, not even those, like Meade, who would have us believe that the above scientific evidence need not apply to their ideas.
