Can I ask a few questions, just to basically ascertain the state of 'Nibiruism' at the moment.
1. Why are we talking about ancient civilisations?
I know that many had pretty slick knowledge of astronomy, i.e Maya with their eclipse predictions or planetary movements or the Dogon tribe with their
knowledge of Sirius being binary (tertiary?) but what has any of this got to do with Nibiru? As far as I knew the only link to Nibiru from the
ancients is one questionably translated seal of the Sumerians, and that basically a leap of logic from a drawing of some stars to Nibiru was made.
2. Does the below statement sum up Nibiru theory as it stands now? As in if someone came to me and said they'd never heard of the theory, would this
be a good one line introduction?
Either a star or planet, which is invisible in the visible light spectrum and is in a highly elliptical orbit around our sun, passes by the earth
every 3600 years and wreaks havoc when it does.
3. When science is thrown at Nibiru theory to debunk the above statement (as per my post a few pages back, and those of many others) is the default
response of believers to say that because science doesn't know absolutely everything, Nibiru must exist no matter how well Keplers laws of planetary
motion have held up for every object we have ever observed, same for laws of gravitiation etc.
4. What do believers make of Nancy Lieder
, and her claims in the late 90s that Nibiru would definitely pass by in 2003? What do they make of
the source of her 'information', that being that it was channelled from aliens? and of her claims that it will pass in 2012 now?
5. If you are a believer, what have you seen/read/experienced that leads you to believe Nibiru exists? or are you just coming from the position that
you don't know it exists but to you it's not impossible?
