Let me make things clear. Once again. What they are saying here is that in Greek mythology Tyche was the beneficent counterpart to Tyche. This is an appropriate name since Whitmire's original hypothesis was for Nemesis, a binary star in the Oort Cloud, that hurls comets towards the inner solar system. Tyche is his replacement hypothesis that describes a planet closer to us and has no involvement in extinctions. Planet X was a planet proposed by Percival Lowell in the early 20th century to explain perturbations in the orbits of the gas giants. These problems were explained when Pluto was found to be much smaller than expected and Neptune was smaller than previously thought. The term Planet X is no longer used in the astronomical community. It is only been used by New Age authors co-opting the term which has lead to a lot of confusion. Many of the names that have been thrown around in the past few days are mainly rooted in the realm of pseudoscience. Those that have actually been used by the astronomical community explain entirely different celestial bodies.

Has ATS fallen to a level that one poster, Crimson Ninja, decides what threads are allowed to develop with views from everyone? I dont quite understand how this is being allowed to happen. This thread is about the subject not the OP. Where are the Mods and why is the behaviour being allowed to continue?
There is absolutly no reason why "Nibiru" threads should be getting treated as they are whether you believe or not.
I have reported an example of the same perpitrator bad mouthing HA in another thread that he wasnt even in and others are now jumping on that bandwagon. There is no place for "Bullying" in ATS. Someone do something about this please, or let me know why its being allowed by one member. Makes you wonder if there is more to the "Nibiru" idea than we think.

yeah I definitely see your point as I have been keeping up with and or have seen a lot of the OP's posts and i can definitely see how hard it is to have any objectivity after so many times of "crying wolf" so to speak...
