Nibiru conspiracy theory end of world theory claims that planet Earth will cease to be in October 2017 as a mystery planet X hurtles in a direct path.
The world is set to end come October 2017 claims the author of a newly released book after charting the trajectory of a mystery asteroid and an ancillary mystery orbiting planet, Nibiru.
In his book, ‘Planet X-The 2017 Arrival’, David Meade a research scientist writes that the wayward star, which he describes as a ‘binary twin of our sun,’ is set to cause a head on collision with Earth.
The meteorite tells the book is coming ‘at us towards the south pole’.
The star will bring with it ‘seven orbiting bodies’, including Nibiru, a large, blue planet also referred to as Planet X which it’s hypothesized will obliterate planet Earth.
Nibiru is a hypothesised ‘rogue’ planet on the edge of our solar system.
Conspiracy theorists believe the gravitational influence of the rogue planet disrupted the orbits of other planets hundreds of years ago.
David Meade believes the planet is set to hit into our planet in October this year, after being driven towards Earth by the gravitational pull from a ‘binary star’ twinned with the sun – of which there is no evidence.
He says the star is difficult to spot because of the angle it is approaching Earth.
Writing a piece for Planet X News, Meade said: ‘This system is, of course, not aligned with our solar system’s ecliptic, but is coming to us from an oblique angle and toward our South Pole.
‘This makes observations difficult, unless you’re flying at a high altitude over South America with an excellent camera’.
In his book, Meade claims to put forward scientific evidence, but readers commenting on the book notes the dailymail say the argument quickly develops into a religious argument.
One reviewer says: ‘on his website he focus on facts and science, astronomical “evidence” to lure some readers into his material, but after a dozen pages it starts to get all religious for almost 40 pages, more than a 1/3 of the book, mentioning visions and dreams.’
He continues, the ‘author mentions several times how certain things are “facts” just because “God said so on the Bible”, and then goes on and on over the rapture.’
Yet while most detract the veracity of the theory, some, including entrepreneur Robert Vicino believes the idea of Nibiru could be true.
In an interview with the dailystar, Vicino claims the ‘elites’ might already be preparing for the end.
Told the man: ‘You have to ask yourself, why did Russia just have a drill for 40 million people?
‘There is no doubt about it is coming. It is going to be epic, right out of the Bible.’
Adding: ‘The public is being kept in the dark deliberately to avoid panic. Storm systems are multiplying both in type, intensity and size.
‘Sinkholes and cracks are appearing in the earth’s crust,’
‘Heatwaves are getting stronger and are lasting longer. I’m just waiting for the fat lady to sing.’
Of note, Vicino happens to own a company that builds luxury underground bunkers (for billionaires) to ‘protect us from a coming life-extinction event’.
Debunking the conspiracy theory, members of the scientific community argue Nibiru is nothing but a hoax.
Scientists reference Nibiru as being a different planet to ‘Planet Nine’, which is also sometimes referred to as Planet X, that was proposed by astronomers in Caltech in January last year
Nibiru was widely predicted to hit our planet in December 2015, and before that in September.
It was also predicted to smash into Earth in 2012 to coincide with the Mayan apocalypse.
While many continue to debunk the idea of a rogue planet, Anjali Tripathi, an astrophysicist at Harvard University, has spoken out about a ‘frightening’ natural effect called atmospheric escape, which could cause catastrophe.
