The planet Nibiru has gathered a lot of interests of many specialists in the field. It is believed that this planet is potentially dangerous to the existing life on planet Earth.
Online doom-mongers believe a planet four times the size of gas giant Jupiter, which they think killed off the dinosaurs, is on course for a close-Earth pass before the end of the year.
Many believers claim the mega-planet will destroy us by April 2016, but a breakaway group says it has uncovered evidence we have even less time and it will be before the end of this month before the devastating pass.
They say an increase in comets, asteroids and natural disasters is down to the incoming planet and claim to hold evidence Governments around the world and NASA are covering up the fact they are secretly preparing for the impending disaster – by amassing coffins and training soldiers to deal with inevitable anarchy in the aftermath.
NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) have previously admitted preparing a disaster plan for collision with a space rock.
A giant asteroid discovered at the eleventh hour narrowly missed Earth on Halloween, before an unidentified lump of space junk, possibly part of a satellite from Nibiru, fell to Earh on Friday 13 this month.
Pointing at a variety of images that looked like the sun or lens flares during sun sets, YouTube video maker Henning Kemner said: “This object is round it is not (any other planet) it is that other incoming object there is no question about it it has its own light bright circular it is not the Sun.”
Gordon James Gianninoto, who claims to have had contact with aliens, said: “As it goes by it’s going to grab the crust and flight it up over the North Pole and let go of it – and when it lets go, the North Pole is going to be the eastern tip of Brasil.”
Other conspiracy theorists claim Puerto Rico is stockpiling body bags and coffins, the US Government has been sending out emergency rations of water and self-heating meals and UN peacekeepers – and even Russian soldiers – are being taught English and training in US military equipment on American soil, so they can work together when disaster strikes.
The conspiracy theory dubbed the Nibiru Cataclysm has been doing the rounds for several years since 1976.
Then, writer Zecharia Sitchin claimed that two ancient Middle Eastern cultures – the Babylonians and Sumerians – told of a giant planet – Nibiru – that orbited the Sun every 3,600 years.
He based this on a translation of Sumerian writing – one of the earliest systems of writing in the world – which is not recognised by other scholars.
Believers later linked this to Planet X – a hypothetical planet astronomers suggested could account for unexplained unusual changes in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune.
The far-fetched claims of a monster astral body – somehow missed by NASA and other astronomers – got an unexpected boost when NASA’s Infrared Astronomical Satellite found signs of an “unknown object…possibly as large as the giant planet Jupiter and possibly so close to Earth that it would be part of this Solar System” in 1983.
NASA later explained away all the evidence as being from bodies outside our Solar System – leading to more cover-up accusations.
The Nibiru prophecy has also been linked in with the story of Wormwood from the Bible’s Book of Revelations which told of “a great star, blazing like a torch, falling from the sky and poisoning a third of the world’s watercourses.
