that asteroid was tiny in mass compared to say our moon. and traveling at relatively high speed, meaning it was able to skirt past without much , if
any damage to itself. and it didn't affect our planet for the same reason, relatively fast speed, low mass. most asteroids are made up of
concentrated iron, or loose rocks, as we didn't' get hit with a storm of giant meteors i'm guessing it was made mostly, if not entirely, of iron.
it's like a bullet shooting past a ball. you don't get the big effects untill the masses of both objects start gettin big and near each other, like
you would with another planet.
i don't know where the whole jupiter thing comes into play. you'd have to do a lot of figuring with a stellarium type program to be able to tell
where jupiter was in relation to the alleged nibiru, and what nibiru's orbital path is to accurately tell that. secondly it has nothing to do with
energy transferance really. the moon affects the tides on earth...why...because of it's mass and proximity to earth. if it was larger, say around the
same size as our planet, all the atmosphere and water would follow it around the planet. this is one reason why we're fortunate our moon is as it is.
if a planet, on an angular orbit, near the mass of earth or greater, came close to earth, the same principle would apply. only since it's path is
angular and takes the alleged nibiru out away from earth's orbit after it's close call, it'd take the atmosphere and water with it, because of
it's mass. nothing to do with energy as you would think with say a bullet or asteroid, since those are small massed objects.
however, it likely would not have affected jupiter to such an extreme as jupiter has such a large mass. it would however have affected the orbits of
why i even mentioned it's effects on earth is because the last i read about the alleged nibiru, it was supposed to have caused a planet to be
destroyed, creating the kuiper belt. i believe it was sitchin himself who put it forward back when he started on the nibiru stuff. which was later
debunked. and such an angular orbit would have then placed it in earth's orbit afterwords. again...this has all been debunked as we see no evidence
whatsoever that a planet on a large angular orbit around the sun has ever existed.
i mean this is all simply stuff any astronomy teacher or astronomist at your local stellar observatory can tell you. this is why no one takes nibiru
seriously.(aside from sitchin and some other people who don't know basics about our solar system) it requires that you throw out everything you know
about the solar system when everything we do know about the solar system, currently, works perfectly...
besides do you really think that aliens on this planet(nibiru) orbit every 6,700 years and are somehow able to keep their planet from freezing into a
solid block of ice, need gold to put in their atmosphere for some odd radiation reason? this is where nibiru came from, sitchin's idea... i'm not
saying anything about ufo's , et visitors, etc. just that nibiru is patently ridiculous, based solely on some basic astronomy lessons, and again the
fact that we see no unexplained perturbations in any planetary orbit in the solar system.
if nibiru enthusiasts could point to some hard data on even one planet's orbit and say, this doesn't make sense mathematically, but if you add in
this mass for nibiru it does! there would be something we could talk about....but none have, and the way it's looking they never will. which is no
big deal for me, as i'm more interested in possible et races than some extremely angular orbiting planet that most likely is colder than pluto on
it's furthest from the sun....
