It’s the end of the world – again

AN invisible planet that has no gravity will crash into the Earth on September 23, believers assert. But will anybody even notice?

Conspiracy theorists say the coming solar eclipse in the northern hemisphere heralds the ‘arrival’ of an apocalyptic prophecy.

David Meade, who has published a book on the subject (yes, there’s still time to rush out and buy it), says he has found biblical passages pointing to the coming celestial catastrophe.

But prophecy isn’t an exact science.

 Planet Nibiru: Will anyone notice when worlds collide on September 23?

INVISIBLE WANDERER

Nibiru — a mythical ‘wandering’ planet, lost in our solar system — is supposed to have hit us before. It had been tied to the 2012 Mayan “Year Zero” apocalypse, which never happened.

The planet has never been seen by astronomers, who have in recent decades completed several full-sky surveys. As it gets closer, it should at least be blocking out the stars behind it - if not reflecting some of the Sun’s light.

Nor has its gravitational pull been observed on other celestial bodies — something that would enable astronomers to figure out where to look.

Also sometimes called “Planet X” and tied to the real astronomical mystery of “Planet IX” — whose existence is inferred by the way its gravity appears to be tossing about asteroids far beyond Pluto in the Kuiper Belt — the idea of such a world gained popularity in the 1973 book “The 12th Planet”. Author Zecharia Sitchin said it was the home of an ancient race of aliens — though how they could survive such an erratic orbit was overlooked.

Hi Krusty,

Not related to the contents of your post, however, with respect to the "end of the world", and i hate to even ask - - being in Australia, are you more concerned about the situation with N. Korea than say if you were somewhere else?  Or, like i've heard from others, they are doing the best they can to put it out of their minds and go about their business as worrying isn't going to accomplish anything. 

Sincerely,

H.B.

Hi Hammer_Bro,

As I mentioned elsewhere, I am concerned and watching closely, but these forums are not the place to discuss politics.

Cheers!

Hi Krusty,

Thanks for the link, didn't realize you had already commented.  Didn't mean to cause a stir, being in part of the off-topic discussion area, i figured i wouldn't raise too many eyebrows...

Sincerely,

H_B,

In any case I won't participate in off-topic discussions.  Thank you for your interest.

Cheers!
