Carl Sagan once said, "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." In other words, the bigger your claim is, you better have an equal
amount or more evidence to show for it.
Since I was first freaked out over Planet X (back in 2003 I believe), I've become very interested in what actual evidence was available to confirm it
Needless to say, after almost 10 years, I feel I have enough evidence. Unfortunately, all of it isn't flattering for the Nibiru believers.
- The Sumerians knowledge of cosmology and astronomy was fragmented and, for the most part, incorrect. They knew about the planets up to and including
Saturn, but they flubbed on everything else.
- The Sumerians believed Nibiru had a collision with Earth and tore it in half. Knowing what we know now, we wouldn't exist if that was the case.
Regardless, how would they have known? (Protip: ALIENS is not a valid argument).
- Nibiru was the name given to Jupiter by the Sumerians. Jupiter = Nibiru
- The Mayan calender ending on December 21, 2012 has nothing to do with the end of the world. Far from it, not even modern Mayans believe that.
December 21, 2012 might not even be the correct date. Regardless, the end of the Mayan calendar is as interesting as you replacing your yearly
calendar with a new one.
- What a coincidence, Nibiru will just happen to show up at the end of the Mayan calendar. The Mayans, by the by, said nothing of Nibiru coming or
anything like it.
- The Hopi prophecies, commonly linked with 2012, are most likely bogus. The Hopi do not discuss such things with outsiders. The main three English
translations of the Hopi prophecies are either bad translation (akin to the old "Jack told Nancy, Nancy told Blake, Blake told me" syndrome which
happens a lot with these sorts of things), or are vulgar misrepresentations and flat out made up. They're an insult to the history and culture of the
Hopi, and if there's one thing that 2012ers can get me upset about, it's quoting Hopi prophecies that they know nothing about. The Thomas Banacyca,
Frank Waters, and Lee Waters.
- So, Nibiru just happens to travel behind the sun. No, wait, it's invisible to the naked eye. No, wait, it's over there under the moon. No,
- Amateur astronomers are not all "good astronomers." When you post 100 videos pointing at Venus, or video artifacts, or sun dogs, or any other
explainable phenomenon and saying they're Nibiru, you're not a "good astronomer", especially when you disable comments and delete messages from
others who provide tangible evidence that you're wrong.
- Humans have been saying the end of the world was near for thousands of years, some of who had more evidence for it than anything 2012ers can muster
In closing, I would like to say that this thread is not an insult to 2012ers. You're free to believe what you wish about anything, that is your
right. But there are a allt of falsehoods, misconceptions, and some outright lies all over the Nibiru/2012 theory.
Please, use your heads, take a neutral stance, and with logic and reasoning you will find the truth.
As the Buddha said:
“What is evil? Killing is evil, lying is evil, slandering is evil, abuse is evil, gossip is evil: envy is evil, hatred is evil, to cling to false
doctrine is evil; all these things are evil. And what is the root of evil? Desire is the root of evil, illusion is the root of evil.”
Namaste and love to you all.
