That's all it is. An idea. A thought.
IF this theory is true, and we cannot see this planet/star/body approaching due to it not emitting visible radiation, and it doesn't reflect sunlight, then what can we do?

If it doesn't reflect light, especially if it is as close to the sun as the OP purports, sounds like a black hole, not a planet or another star. Equally as ludicrous as Planet X.
Personally I think the whole idea of "planet X" is utterly ridiculous.edit on 5/18/2012 by Chamberf=6 because: sp
TextWhat's wrong with entertaining an idea? You don't have to believe in something to logically think of all the possibilities in our universe.
Contributing to this thread doesn't have to mean you believe in it.
You and the OP have the same things available. We are all the same species. We are all equal, no matter what the MSM, your family, your peers/friends tell you. We are all ####ing equal. We might have different physical characteristics, that enable us to do different things. But we all have the power to think. Thinking is our only freedom left, idc if you believe that or not. Look around you
How does any of this relate to my post?
But, come to find out, that public school is complete trash. College isn't really much better, a ploy to get your money and teach you to follow directions, under the guise that you will someday get a high paying job because you have a piece of paper with your name on it, and some title. Which gives that person, personal empowerment
Where anywhere on this site EVER have I mentioned money??
If you don't learn everyday, then what have you done? Oh, you made that much money? That's cool, If SHTF, I would love to see you running about with all your money. Maybe you could burn it for warmth and to keep predators away.
That is the only thing that relates to anything I said. You could've stopped with that.
Sure, it sounds like a black hole

Well, first of all, let me say, if you are not interested in this topic no one is forcing you to read this thread.
Secondly, this is ATS, not the Ladies Home Journal, so if this topic bothers you then maybe ATS is not the website for you.
About viewing Planet X
Many say, quite reasonably, that if Planet X was coming at us from the Sun (it's nearest approach is predicted to be 14 million miles), that it should be plainly visible. Good point. However, did you know that there are literally billions of objects in the universe that emit light in the non-visible spectrum, that cannot be seen with the naked eye, and can only be seen with special instruments? Well, Planet X is one of these celestial bodies, is impossible to see at this point with the naked eye, because it is emitting light from the IR spectrum AND appears close to the sun from earth at this time (when seen with IR filters). It is best seen with IR filters, one of the best is the red filter from an old floppy disk, and the best time to view it is during dusk or dawn (with an IR filter).
Snipped list of every conspiracy going.......
since it is said to be coming swinging around the sun and lost in its glare
Some members are very close-minded whenever the subject of this Planet X comes up. They have made their mind up it doesn't exist and no amount of arguing is going to matter to them.
Will Planet X be visible during the eclipse on May 20th?

As pointed out, the OP is not based on an idea or a theory. It's an alleged fact, an insistence, that this thing is near and will be destroying most of us very shortly.
That is where the vitriol in reaction to it comes from. No other way to characterize it other than the rantings of a loon or an intentional fear-monger. Because without proof, that's all it can be when it's put forth as fact.
