And we also know that there are many people out there that are so desperate for Nibiru to exist, that they will grasp at anything, anything at all,
and say that it's proof, because they so desperately need to believe in Nibiru (or any other "End Of The World" idea out there).
This I don't understand, why would they want there to be a real Nibiru and an end to the world? I have to admit, yes I am rather freaked at the
possibility, but would much rather find proof that it is not real than proof that it is.
And yes, if it were going to hit in 2012 and was a massive something, then lots of people would have definite proof and visuals by now.
The reasons are many and varied.
People that post things like this on the internet have rather mundane reasons many times for doing so: promoting a book of theirs, getting paid for
their videos, conning people into buying 'survival' gear, etc. They see a market that they can exploit, and boy do they exploit it.
As P.T. Barnum said: "There's a sucker born every minute."
People that buy into, or help spread this:
These again, are people that do this for many reasons. Some are living a life that they hate, to them life is boring. Wouldn't it be cool if things
changed? Let's actually have something that I've seen in a block buster movie, or something that I've read that has fired up my imagination!
Some do it because it makes them feel like they are part of something special. That they belong to a special group of people that are "enlightened"
and that everyone else are ignorant. Never mind that these same people show their own ignorance where science is concerned. To them, they are "in"
on some great secret, and it makes them feel good.
Some just love to do this because they know it will be confronted. They love to argue, they love to try and spin people up. For them, it's a game:
can I get someone so PO'ed I can get them banned?
For many, it doesn't matter when a date for Nibiru comes and goes, and nothing happened. They wait for some other date. That will happen again come
this December. Heck, it's already happened as according to one "Source" we were suppose to be seeing it in the sky by now. And of course, it's a
What did the source do?
They stopped talking about it of course!
They'll come back with another date, don't worry.
People like me come here to dispell this stuff. Normally I wouldn't have bothered.
But when you have young people killing themselves because they think this stuff is true and is going to happen, then yah, I step in.
When "Cult Leaders" (sorry, there is no other term for what Nancy Lieder is, and her followers. They ARE a cult), urge people to kill their pets to
get ready for the end of the world, yep, I and others step in.
Where does it stop? What will be the next "urging" to do? Kill your neighbors and yourself?
Posting YouTube videos is one thing. Saying that you are trying to "enlighten" people is also one thing.
Spreading crap that causes people to kill themselves or ruin their lives is another thing.
It's just like being irresponsible with a loaded weapon. Because:
The pen is mightier than the sword
