You have probably heard of the planet Nibiru - this celestial body was supposed to collide with Earth on September 23, but nothing happened on that event (as it has been the case with all the other supposedly apocalyptic events). Anyway, conspiracy theorists are claiming that the actual apocalyptic event (which is linked to some expected earthquakes) is supposed to happen tomorrow - Sunday, or November 19. Given how many earthquakes there already have been in 2017, these prophecies could be dangerously close to the truth.
There was a lot of talk in the media and online forums about a supposed even that should have happened on September 23. The good news is, that event (a collision between Earth and Nibiru) never happened - otherwise you wouldn't be reading this article.
The first prediction about an apocalyptic event linked to Nibiru had garnered so much attention, that even Nasa had to come out with a press release, to refute the evidence of that possible prediction. We'll see if there will be a press release for tomorrow's event.
According to the prediction, tomorrow, on 19 November, a supposed series of deadly and high impact earthquakes are supposed to hit Earth. There have already been a lot of magnitude 6 and 7+ earthquakes this year, mostly in Europe and Asia.
As with the previous prophecy, there has already been some response from Nasa - although not an official response. A Nasa scientist claims that the undetected planet Nibiru can't exist because if that planet existed, it would already have pulled the moon out of Earth's orbit.
A lot of people who identify as conspiracy theorists can easily be swayed into believing some outrageous events. Just think of what was happening with the whole year 2000 (Y2K) event, and as well as the 12.12.2012 "apocalyptic" event, 5 years ago.
According to Dr. David Morrison, who works at the Nasa Ames Research Centre, if such a system could have made it inside the inner parts of our solar system, such gravitational forces would have already disrupted the moons, and even other planets in our system.
Nibiru goes by other names as well - its most well-known alternative is "Planet X." Planet X is a hypothesized celestial object that sits on the edge of our solar system, and given its location, it can only orbit the sun every 3,600 years.
According to the conspiracy theorists who believe in the Planet X prophecy, a similar event already has happened in Earth's past, given that Nibiru is supposed to orbit the sun every 3,600 years. The apocalyptic earthquakes would happen due to the gravitational influence.
Dr. David Morrison opinion on the subject (that Nibiru can't exist, as otherwise, the moon wouldn't be in Earth's orbit) were made during a podcast released by the Search for Extraterrestrial Life Institute (SETI). SETI is known for running one of the largest distributed global computing applications.
Since SETI runs several different websites, this specific podcast with Dr. David Morrison was released on the "Big Picture Science Radio Show," on the broadcasted episode, called "Skeptic Check: Nibiru! (Again!)" That is a show worth watching for anyone interested in more information on the subject.
During the recent episode where the Nasa scientist gave his opinion on the subject, he said: "If a big object was coming into the solar system its gravity would perturb the orbits of the planets, and we would have detected that long before it came close to the Earth."
Scientists know that gravity as a very complicated matter, and you can't have various, random objects entering and exiting a solar system, without them being easily noticed or causing all kinds of different problems. That's why Nasa is skeptical on the subject.
Dr. David Morrison continued the interview, saying "The planet's orbits are very regulated, and, if some massive object came along every so often and came through the inner solar system, it would all be screwed up, the planets would not be coplanar."
Nibiru has been a focus of conspiracy theories for a long time. The latest rumors are just a few in the long line of similar conspiracy theories have been released to the public. The latest rumors have been spread by the Planetxnews.com website.
The team behind the Plenetxnews website, claim that they have been following the growing amount of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that have hit our planet in the last few months. That's partially why they expect this Sunday to be a specifically vulnerable day to life on Earth.
