Actually, you have been misled:
There's far too much ancient artifacts saying Nibiru exist..
There are plenty of scholars and experts on ATS who are very familiar with the actual translations of ancient sources.
The "Nibiru" claims stem from one man, basically --- a fellow named Zechariah Sitchen. He (wrongly) claims that he "translated" ancient Sumerian
texts....and he's the one who concocted this hoax and myth of "Nibiru".
Now....all it takes is a little bi of common sense and knowledge of astronomy to understand that this "Nibiru" is non-existent. Think on this:
We can see Jupiter with the naked eye. Even though it is a LONG ways away.....it is very big. Same with Saturn, even farther away,, and although a
bit smaller than Jupiter, still can be seen with the naked eye. Next is Uranus....harder to see, need very good viewing conditions, but it's still
All ^ ^ ^ without a telescope or binoculars.
So, any such thing as "Nibiru" that was "inbound"? It would be dead obvious, to everyone on the planet (by now). Especially as the stated (and
fully a hoax) claim of an "arrival" in December of this year.
Think about the speeds of the bodies in our Solar System, and then you can work out the distance to cover. Jupiter, for instance, is about 5 A.U.
distance from the Sun (One A.U. is the average distance of Earth to the Sun, or roughly 93,000,000 miles).
Now, simple math can tell you the velocity needed if say....Jupiter were to suddenly defy all laws of physics and orbital mechanics, and make a 90°
turn and head inbound, toward the Sun.....for it to arrive in the vicinity of Earth's orbit in December, 2012.
Ain't gonna happen. And, neither is "Nibiru". Since it doesn't even exist!
