Deny Ignorance. The motto of this fine website. I felt obliged to write this up after a recent (continuing) spate of threads regarding the infamous
Nibru (Nibiru). What the authors of the threads regarding this topic are doing is completely contradicting the motto of this website and all that it
stands for, it not only relies upon no actual evidence, but actually seeks to connect dots where there are none. Its fair to say that those who
subscribe to the theories which speak of Nibru arriving in 2012 are nothing short of cultists. Its even more fair to say, that these beliefs make less
sense and hold less substance than some of the older religions such as Christianity and Islam, here’s why:
First to explain why this is nothing short of a cult:
-They rely on no factual evidence.
-It is a faith based mentality.
-They have their ‘holy book’ (Sitchin’s Earth Chronicles) from which their fundamental beliefs are derived.
-They have their ‘coming messiah’, the infamous Nibru.
-Unlike Christianity/Islam where the historical validity of these religion’s holy documents are still being debated, the Nibru-ists ‘holy book’
is known to be a work of fiction, and their ‘founding father’ is known to be a fictional author.
Why is this cultist mentality dangerous?
-It requires you to suspend your rational and logical side.
-You deflect all proper evidence which contradicts your beliefs.
It’s followers are adamant that they have ‘seen’ this planet, when all ‘evidence’ is easily debunked as something else. Common myths are
thrown around such as the fact that the Mayans/Sumerians/Hindu’s all predicted that Nibru would arrive in 2012, when it is completely false. The
fact that the name Nibru itself is not even referred to as a planet, but rather a title, in all Sumerian cuneiform, really speaks wonders as to where
the information is really derived from (Sitchin). The works of educated scholars are trashed while the works of fictional authors are placed on a
pedestal. They continually throw around youtube videos of amateur space shots where the planet in question is either Mars, Venus or a bright star. You
could go on and on about how flawed these beliefs are.
Keep your beliefs, but stop preaching around when you have nothing to back up your words. Not all people know how to weigh everything they read on the
internet, and when they see 1 thread, 2 threads, 3 threads pop up of youtube videos claiming to show Nibru and a row of posters explaining how through
remote viewing they’ve seen Nibru come in 2012, the result is not good.
If I’m the only one who’s concerned about what this fantasy is doing to the integrity of the site, then ignore this post.
If I’m the only one who’s concerned about what this fantasy is doing to some of the younger members of this site, then ignore this post.
If I’m the only one who’s concerned about the alarming growth of this fantasy throughout this site, then ignore this post.
But if I’m not the only one who’s concerned, please speak up. This is a virus that needs to be addressed.
