As Roland Emmerich’s disaster movie 2012 opens in cinemas worldwide and as we slowly get closer and closer to the year 2012, the hysteria about the world ending has been growing.
2012 myths as well as Emmerich’s film focus on the end of the world occuring because a ficitious planet called Nibiru smashes into Earth. The fact that Nibiru has never been found by anyone with a telescope hasn’t stopped conspiracy theorists from coming up with all kinds of ridiculous stories about NASA and the governments of the world covering up this world ending event. There is even a website called Surviving Nibiru and it states:
In 2012 a planet called Nibiru/Planet-X may reek real havoc on our planet as it passes through our inner solar system.
By 2010, Nibiru will be the headline of every major newspaper in the world and global pandemic would soon follow.
By then it will be almost to late to prepare for the inevitable. Will you be one of them or is your family ready?
Currently Nibiru is being seen with the naked eye in the skies in the most southern hemisphere.
By 2010 Nibiru will be able to be seen with the naked eye in the northern hemisphere.
Since 12-31-1983 Planet-X has been tracked by NASA, and continues to this day.
In the name of Global security, official news of Nibiru has been suppressed.
Now I live in Southern Hemisphere and I haven’t seen this mysterious planet appear in the night sky. Has anyone else? You would think that if this planet was visible that people would be talking about it regardless of the fact that “official news of Nibiru has been suppressed”, I mean, most of us are on Twitter or Facebook or some other form of social networking site. But why let the facts get in the way of a fantastic story.
Unfortunately, this fantastic story has gained so much traction that NASA has now had to come out with an official statement about Nibiru and the truth of the 2012 myths. It is so sad that this eminent space research facility has had to waste time addressing this nonsense, but they have.
“There is no factual basis for these claims,” NASA said in a question-and-answer post on its website.
If such a collision were real “astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye,” it added.
“Obviously, it does not exist.
“Credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012,” NASA concluded.
After all, “our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years.”
All of this would be funny, if there wasn’t people out there who honestly believed in this stuff and who are making plans for what to do when Nibiru either smashes into Earth or messes with our poles and gravity.
