What is Nibiru?

awhile ago, a friend of mine and I were discussing all the 2012 theories that were running wild amongst the people. One of them was the theory he believed–that of Nibiru. Nibiru is thought to be a planet, also known as Planet X, which is on its way towards earth as we speak (or so goes the theory). It was supposedly discovered by the Sumerians, who believe in the Anunnaki, alien-type creatures, who aided in the discovery of Planet X.

this is the supposed location of planet x:

as you can see, the last planet there is supposed to be Nibiru. It may be known as a brown dwarf in our solar system–which resemble low-mass gas planets.

supporters of this theory believe that Anunnaki have actually visited earth before, in search of a gold-like mineral; some even go so far as to believe that they made some humans slaves in order to mine such minerals.

The Nibiru theory is connected to a creation story very different from the typical Adam and Eve–believing that an Anunnaki goddess formed the Adam (the first man), because the Anunnaki people wanted a worker to communicate with. Apparently the double helix formation of our DNA is the goddess’s symbol.

There are many logical reasons why this could not be possible:

  1. a planet behind pluto the size of a brown dwarf would not have gone unoticed by astronomers for so long.
  2. if planet x is coming towards the earth, it would be getting brighter and more visible; and yet cannot be seen

Here is the article in Skeptical Inquirer that pretty much agrees with everything I’ve said: http://www.csicop.org/si/show/update_on_the_nibiru_2012_doomsday/

2012 media blitz

“The Mayans did not try to warn people–they simply had a calender that ended on the year 2012, just as ours ends on December 31st. In fact, the Mayans have shown irritation and contempt for the way their culture has been portrayed.” –Ben Radford

Ben Radford, the literary expert on myths, frauds, and media exploitation, wrote a recent article in the Skeptical Inquirer, one of my favorite periodicals on science versus science fiction. The article was in part a review of the movie 2012 starring John Cusak, as well as his stance on 2012 and a video interview he conducted with the movie’s director.

here is the article for your discretion: http://www.csicop.org/si/show/2012_not_a_complete_disaster/

I, myself, saw 2012. Although I was impressed by the extensive CGI, must agree with Mr. Radford. The media has no doubt exploited the public’s fear over humanity’s survival, just as it exploites every aspect of society for its own purpose. I also don’t believe the Mayans had any ability to predict the future. They did not predict anything in their culture as a fortune telling type deal, but made scientific discoveries that turned out to be true. Furthermore, my dad put the question most eloquently: if the Mayans could predict our downfall in 2012, why could they not see the end of their own great civilization? hmm….questionable.

Being a metaphysical-type, I still have my own theories on the matter, some of which seem crazy and totally out-there. But nonetheless they’ll probably appear here sometime in the near future. I’m excited to announce at on 2012 I will be 21, which means even if the world ends, I can be too intoxicated to notice. Whoopie :]
