The problem with all the Blossom Goodchild types is they all attach dates to their prophecies. All the successful/famous prophets have been vague about their prophecies. This way, they are never wrong and hopefully it'll eventually come true.

The EARTH does seem to be a little more ACTIVE WITH NATURAL EVENTS right,

No... how'd you come to that conclusion?
Have you examined all global seismic data for the last 100 years? I think if you did you would find that we're actually in a quiet period and that it is hardly out of the ordinary.
Thanks for the reply, but this is just another fine example of myths that continually get added to the Nibru cultist tumble-weed, no dis-repsect to you.

When 2012 has come and gone, these folks will be out of business.
With so many earthquakes occurring all over the world, due SOMETHING going on this solar system, are you sure that YOU will be here in 2012???
Actually looking at the evidence, there are no more earthquakes this year than there were last year.
Anybody who has any knowledge in these things will tell you that there is NOTHING out of the ordinary in regards to frequency of Earthquakes or any other natural disaster.
Yes, I am sure I wlll be here in 2012, unless I get hit by a bus or something completely random like that.

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.

Stop trying to save people from themselves. Everyone has a right to be ignorant and believe what they choose. You can't force things upon them. If people want to talk about Planet X/Nibiru or whatever it's their right. Direct your energy into something useful.

why so cruel? because i'm saying jesus isn't coming, and if he does i'll suffer a worst fate. so, if anyone can, get their address so that when the MSM says nibiru is coming to kill us all we have a full three month to burn their flesh and all their families members flesh. then we'll all die satisfying death knowing people paid for their ignorance.
