The Planet X apocalypse theory is a bunch of hogwash

The Planet X apocalypse theory is a bunch of hogwash


Author’s interpretation of potential Planet X

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: A group of people think the world is going to end very soon. 

The newest end of the world conspiracy theory centers on the mysterious “Planet X,” aka Nibiru, which is expected to appear out of nowhere and smash into Earth, destroying us all and granting us that sweet relief of death we’ve been craving ever since Donald Trump discovered Twitter.

This theory isn’t new. It cropped up in 2003 and nothing happened. It was revised again to 2012 and nothing happened. I’ll let you guess what the outcome of this new doomsday date will be.

Nibiru is actually the “discovery” of Zecharia Sitchin who was something of a historian if you’re the type to believe “Ancient Aliens” is accurate. But the idea of Nibiru as planet destroyer was put forth by Nancy Lieder in 1995.

New for 2018, according to this Fox News article (which treats this whole damn farce with an incredibly straight-face), is a dash of Christian rapture via doomsday predictor David Meade, an idea so absurd I’m not even going to bother addressing it here.

The whole thing sounds incredibly similar to the ending of the Lars von Trier film Melancholia where a rogue planet crashes into Earth at the end, killing everyone. 

It should be noted that Melancholia is not a sci-fi film but rather an exploration of depression, which is fine. “Doomed,” is how I feel knowing that Fox News is treating this whole thing with the seriousness they give to elections or Obama’s tan suit

There’s long been talk about a “Planet X” from NASA, but that refers to the potential discovery of a new planet lurking way out on the far-flung fringes of our solar system, not one that’s going to pop around one day and wreck your stuff like a surprise visit from your ex. 

Alas, it’s very unlikely that NASA has missed something as big as another entire planet roaming our Solar System, threatening the other planets with its might. (That said, we still reached out to NASA just to be sure, so we’ll update this story once we hear back.) 

This is all very silly, but if anyone has any “Nibiru is actually flat” theories, I’m all ears.
