Doomsayers claim the world will end tomorrow

Rumors of another apocalyptic collision with the mythical planet Nibiru have been circulating the Internet.
Based on absolutely no scientific data at all, this latest incarnation of the Nibiru doomsday myth, which claims that the world will end tomorrow (September 23), has been making headlines this week.

Interest in Nibiru, which has been connected to various doomsday prophecies over the last two decades, began in 1995 after Nancy Lieder, founder of the website ZetaTalk, claimed that extraterrestrials from the Zeta Reticuli star system had warned her of an impending collision.

Since then there have been multiple 'doomsdays' involving Nibiru, but as evidenced by the fact that we are still here to talk about it, every single one of these has turned out to be bogus.
Tomorrow's alleged apocalypse is based on the occurrence of a rare celestial alignment that, according to some, happens to mirror signs from the Bible's Book of Revelation.

Unsurprisingly, NASA has been quick to dismiss the whole thing as nonsense.

"Various people are 'predicting' that world will end on September 23 when another planet collides with Earth," the space agency wrote. "The planet in question, Nibiru, doesn't exist, so there will be no collision. The story of Nibiru has been around for years (as has the 'days of darkness' tale) and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables."

"Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye. Obviously, it does not exist."

At least 10 years I've been reading these planet X, rogue comet, Nibiru, Nemesis, etc. stories on disclose.tv, beforeitsnews.com, etc.† †Dozens of the stories.† They only vary in the BS the author decides to put into them and by the fact that the appointed date is always some point in the near future that eventually gets eclipsed with nothing happening. It takes quite an insane level of gullibility to believe the stories posted on these kind of websites.† When it comes to 'fake news', it doesn't get more fake than these kind of stories. †

That's dangerous and irresponsible advice.† Staring at the sun for more than a few seconds can caused retinal damage. It's also impossible to stare as something as bright as the sun without blinking for 10 minutes, unless you're undergoing the Ludivoco method and they have you pointed at the sun. I've stupidly looked directly at the sun through a telephoto lens for matter of seconds†and I saw stuff that wasn't there.† Multiple visions of the sun in my eyes, wobbly coloured things in my vision, etc. Migraine headaches.† A need to lie down.† No NIbiru though, but I imagine the kind of gullible t...

Was just perusing youtube and what do you know, the apocalyptic doom and gloom everywhere reminded me of your reply. You called it...

Hey, you don't have to wait till Christmas. Use the garbage you have now and then put the "body" behind someone's dumpster. Just make sure you wear gloves and sanitize your garbage - that is, make sure there's nothing in it to ID you.

I'm so glad the apocalypse was postponed until the end of October. I was really afraid I was going to miss trick or treating.

There is no plausible way for a planet to do that....Pure science fiction...I think one of the biggest dangers is an approach from the Sun like the Cheblinsky meteor...It came in from the Sun and thats the reason it was not spotted. Planets just do not play hide and seek its not the way it works...Sorry I did not realize how old this thread was. †
