Stereologist has a history of doing this, just look at his posts... while seemingly intelligent, he throws a lot of straw man arguments out to derail
And to correct YOUR misrepresentation of Nemesis... it is just a name given to ONE theory Stereologist, but you are using that to completely shut down
a very important subject / thread and I for one, don't like it or appreciate what you are trying to do. This article has enormous validity towards our
solar system possibly being, or once being, a BINARY star system, which is completely supported in the astronomical circles since MOST systems are
binary. There has long been the thought that we had a companion, or sister star, that might have burned out or never ignited.
The name "Nemesis" has been used in a way in many discussions to describe BOTH the extinction star that you are referring to that was described in a
paper by David Raup and Jack Sepkoski, to describe periodic extinction events that seem to occur in cycles, AND Nemesis has also been used to describe
the SAME star in a NON-EXTINCTION fashion, as in to relate it to the SISTER star of our sun that may or may not have been a star or could be floating
around outside of the Oort Cloud.
You come here saying the OP is misrepresenting, and offer nothing constructive other than dispelling the idea of Nibiru/Planet X, which there are
plenty of other threads to do that on. This specific thread is dealing with a "new" discovery about a potential planetary body that just
coincidentally matches some of the stories around Planet X. To think that there won't be speculation running rampant about this and people discussing
it is silly and you are fooling yourself if you think you're going to convince every reader that you are correct.
I admire your tenacity, but if I were to offer you any friendly advice, it's that you have to learn when to bow out of certain discussions.
OP - S&F to you.
