Nibiru? Try “no”biru…

Nibiru keeps cropping up as an idea of a world killer, specifically our world.

Researcher David Meade Meade predicted in his book Planet X – The 2017 Arrival, the mythical system would be visible in our skies from September 23.

He had gone quiet on the subject after Nibiru failed to pass us last month – on a date of which he prophesied.

Now he has told how David Taylor, an investigative journalist with the Rocky Mountain News has received conclusive photographic proof Nibiru exists and details of how it is about to strike us within the next 72 hours, from a shadowy observatory official named only as Willis.

Counting from today, apparently. The article has a short video of a contrail, supposedly, “proving” the truth of this. Only for the gullible, maybe. I’m pretty sure I’ll still be expected to turn up for work on Tuesday.

The Nibiru or Planet X theory claims a mini solar system consisting of a sun, planets and moons is lurking on the edge of our system with a huge 3,600 miles orbit of the sun.

Nibiru believers are convinced the “rogue system” is making its way from the outer solar system inwards, where it will wreak havoc on Earth as it passes at about four million miles away.

Thus triggering the cataclysmic events of earthquakes, volcanoes.. you know. The things Earth is fully capable of unleashing without the help of other planetary bodies any day of the week. Apparently it’ll also cause the poles to switch, but scientists have known that’s going to happen for some time now. It’s happened more than once.

believers now claim it will be on an approach path with the Earth between November 20 and December 20.

Sure, it could happen before Christmas, or anytime within the next 2000 years.

Now Meade’s hoping his planet X theorizing can be made into a major motion picture of the style that has excited and enraged movie audiences for decades.

“This is a Feature Film Treatment which is high concept and suitable for any major production company.

“It is extremely visual (with locations in California, Arizona, Chile and Argentina), targets a broad audience, and sparks a most fascinating ‘what if’ question: What if the stories behind Planet X are real?

“What if the government is watching its inbound approach, but not telling the public and instead engaging in a massive cover-up?

“This is an incredible true story based upon my best-selling nonfiction books on Planet X.”

The Express asked Meade to answer some questions regarding regarding his beliefs and failed prophesies but at the time of the article, he had not yet replied. Other people were quoted, though:

NASA’s official line is that conspiracy theorists such as Mr Meade are completely wrong, and the Nibiru myth is an internet hoax.

Dr David Morrison, a scientist with the space agency, said: “There is no credible evidence whatever for the existence of Nibiru.

“There are no pictures, no tracking, no astronomical observations.

“I can quite specifically say how we know Planet X or Nibiru does not exist and does not threaten Earth.

“Firstly, if there was a planet headed into the inner solar system that was going to come close to the Earth, it would already be inside the orbit of Mars, it would be bright, it would be easily visible to the naked eye – if it was up there it would be easy to see it, all of us could see it.”

Space boffin Dr Brian Cox has also insisted Planet X does not exist.

And associate Professor Jonti Horner, an astronomer at the University of Southern Queensland in Australia, said: “I’ve never heard of anybody who’s an actual astronomer talk about Nibiru before…

Armchair astronomers the world over haven’t found this thing. If believers believe they have and “have been silenced” to keep the rest of the world from panicking — that’s zany and certainly bad movie plot worthy. This whole Nibiru thing doesn’t have a legitimate leg to stand on. I don’t know why anyone takes this garbage seriously.
