Niburu Is Coming, Theorists Warn

If you like to browse doomsday predictions or conspiracy websites, you might be aware of the warnings about 'Planet X', otherwise known as Niburu. Apparently, this large, fiery planet has a far-reaching orbit and only returns to our neck of the universe every 3,600 years. It's coming back now, and its heading straight for us, according to a website.

The website Planetxnews.com says that by using numerology and the Bible, they have successfully predicted the approach of Niburu, due to sweep past our planet sometime next month. The gravitational pull of Niburu is going to trigger an apocalyptic-like event for the Earth, says the website. They are blaming Niburu on the recent hurricanes and earthquakes, noting that we'll experience 'global seismic activity' reaching a peak in November, and continuing on into December.

Some theorists believe that Niburu is on a collision course with the planet. Recently the theories stirred up some concern because it was supposed to hit us 33 days after the total solar eclipse back in August. David Meade, an expert Christian numerologist, told the Washington Post back then that 33 is a significant number in the Bible. Jesus was 33 years old when he died. It's used liberally in the Book of Revelation as well.

Meade also says that it's written on the walls of ancient Egyptian pyramids.

Back in August, Meade said Niburu was destined to hit the earth between September 20 and 23. Now that those dates have zipped by without incident, Meade says he didn't mean direct impact. "The world is not ending, but the world as we know it is ending," he explained.

What do reputable scientists have to say about Niburu? Only one thing: it doesn't exist. The hysteria over Niburu stirred up so much fear in September that NASA was forced to respond to the many emails they were getting from terrified people. They normally don't acknowledge conspiracy theories, but the panic was so widespread and had gained so much media attention they were forced to come forward and tell people that there was nothing to fear.

NASA refuted any claims about the mystery planet, saying it didn't exist. If it did, and if it was actually heading for Earth, they'd have been tracking it for a decade now. If it was close enough to nearly hit the earth within a couple of months, it would be visible to the naked eye.

"Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax," said the statement from NASA. "Obviously, it does not exist."

The fact is, the idea that Niburu is coming for us is nothing new. It's been an internet hoax now for 20 years, and possibly existed before the internet. It just didn't get mass attention because before the world wide web, people had to know where to search for conspiracy news.

Every few years, new websites pop up making the conspiracy claims. Website owners and YouTube video makers are finding it is an extremely lucrative business to scare the crap out of gullible people. Their videos get watched and shared. Some laugh it off, some shiver and pray it's wrong, and some people live in misery for a while because they become convinced the end is near.

When the prediction dates pass by and nothing happens, they flounder with a few excuses and time recalculations. Then they slip away and reappear a couple of years later under a new name, and it starts all over again.
