Got that Friday Feeling? Ready for a full weekend of banter and booze, yeah?! Tough! The world is ending on Sunday.
Conspiracy theorists have said the mysterious planet of Nibiru will destroy the Earth this weekend.
They previously predicted it to occur on September 23 and then in October, thanks to the hearsay of a Christian numerologist.
Now, punters reckon the apocalypse has been rescheduled till November 19.
However, a leading NASA scientist has said the planet cannot exist. If it did, its gravitational forces would have already rid Earth of its moon.
So we have to take this end of days shout with a pinch of salt, to say the absolute very least.
The Daily Mail reports Dr David Morrison, an astronomer with the NASA Ames Research Centre, said:
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.
This is fake news in the eys of Nibiru truthers, who claim NASA are part of a wider conspiracy to ‘hide the truth’.
Sometimes referred to as Planet X, Nibiru is an unconfirmed planet on the edge of the solar system that orbits the sun every 3,600 years.
As per Crystal Links:
The legend of Nibiru, or Planet X (above and below, the hourglass of physical reality), is a myth brought forth to awaken human consciousness in end times.
Nibiru, in Babylonian Astronomy translates to ‘Planet of Crossing’ or ‘Point of Transition’, especially of rivers, i.e. river crossings or ferry-boats, a term of the highest point of the ecliptic, i.e. the point of summer solstice, and its associated constellation.
The establishment of the Nibiru point is described in tablet 5 of the Enuma Elish. Its cuneiform sign was often a cross, or various winged disc. The Sumerian culture was located in the fertile lands between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers, at the southern part of today’s Iraq.
As the highest point in the paths of the planets, Nibiru was considered the seat of the summus deus who pastures the stars like sheep, in Babylon identified with Marduk. This interpretation of Marduk as the ruler of the cosmos was identified as an early monotheist tendency in Babylonian religion by Alfred Jeremias.Are you a scientist? Do you have conclusive evidence that this will definitely not happen? Get in touch.
In a way, I don’t want this to happen but I also kind of do, you know what I mean? There’s something about missing out on the apocalypse that gives me bad FOMO.
