In a nutshell, Mr.Nibiru (fondly known as rogue planet) is on its way to enter the solar system and have a friendly collision with the earth. The impact would be so huge that it would disrupt the entire planet and would mark the end of the world. Yeah I know, your thinking I am ripping of some parts of Armageddon (the movie) and narrating a movie of my own. But NO, this is the prophecy. Call it coincidence or sheer Hollywood miracle; US will be the country that will face the impact directly. Hahaha…
There are a few facts (fictions rather) that lead to this discovery though.
Fact 1: Ancient Mesopotamians and Mayans had discovered that a massive planet, Nibiru, was about to enter the inner solar system and doom the Earth. The Mayans have indicated this on their long calendar and apparently the day was adjudged to be 12/21/2012 which marks the end of the Mayan calendar.
Fact 2: This is something that actually got me thinking, primarily due to the credibility of this man. Albert Einstein has stated that the earth’s magnetic poles are shifting. The North Pole is moving toward Siberia. As these poles shift, the weather systems of the earth also change. There has been unusual weather around the world in the last 20 or so years. The closer Nibiru gets to our solar system, the more their magnetic flux affects the orbits, axis and trajectories of the planets in our system. Fortunately, there is no evidence that this would collide with postulated doom’s day. Whew!!!
Fact 3: Prophecies of Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce and other fore-tellers have also predicted a catastrophic apocalypse. I have never believed in them and never will so I am not gonna ponder over it.
Fact 4: Polar ice caps melting, volcanic eruption, frequent earthquakes, Tsunami, unusual climatic changes suggests these are piling up to create a massive destruction of some sort. But then again there is no proof of date. I believe this is all an effect of global warming and can be controlled only if we get more “socially conscious”
Fact 5: Religious scriptures also talk about the arrival of Anti-Christ, shift of power to the east, economic turmoil and stuff like that. But yeah, if there was an Anti-Christ, it would have been Hitler himself, as he was one person who closely matched the specifications of that guy. But yeah, he’s dead and we still exist which is good enough at the moment!
All of these are more of a fiction than anything else, except maybe the global warming issue. My guess is that only a tiny fraction of people truly believes that Armageddon is coming in December 2012. But their uncritical acceptance of this story worries me as a warning of the dangers of our current scientific illiteracy. If at all a threat exists to our planet, it’s only due to global warming and we will have to deal with it by being more conscious.
One of funniest things about this Nibiru story is that it is a rerun – there was a big Internet concern that Nibiru would destroy the Earth in May of 2003. Something tells me this didn't happen, yet now the same myth is resurrected. Are we condemned to suffer a Nibiru scare or will people come to their senses??? Lets hope we live that long to witness it ;)
