I think that a lot of the moons around some of the planets, are bigger than Pluto, and I consider Pluto a planet. So in my opinion there are hundreds of planets in our solar system.
Anyhow. I think that many of the moons are ignored, when some of them have a reasonably good chance of life.

I still miss Pluto. When you spend nearly 6 decades of your life taught that Pluto is a planet and then some one comes along and tells you no it's not---well they are rewriting things! the damn nit-pickin scientists

Pluto will always be a Planet, to me.

So they lowered it's planet status two dwarf planet. But still a planet. Also if you click the link provided we have Eris and Ceres out beyond Pluto and according to the chart meet the same criteria. Eleven planets.
But the experts who never seem to make sense say eight. I disagree....

Interesting theory about 12 planets and 12 disciples.

I wouldn't exclude pluto as a planet. It was discovered in the era of the atomic bomb and plutonium, I find that a co-incidence I can't ignore.
For the sake of accuracy, Eris is "out beyond Pluto", but Ceres is NOT. Ceres' orbit is in between Jupiter and Mars. It's the only known dwarf planet whose orbit is not trans-Neputian (beyond Neptune).
I'm not sure if you go with the Ancient Alien theory or not, but I do, and this is making more and more sense with each new cosmic find.
When that planet makes it eliptical orbit around the sun, every 2600 years, it is said to wreak havic on the Earth, and now look at our planet
