As Phage has mentioned that is not from an astronomer. The reason Tyche was hypothesized was to explain the orbits of long period comets. Nothing more
than that. On top of that, Matese and Whitmire, the researchers who proposed it, are pretty much the only ones supporting the hypothesis.
I am leaning toward agreeing with you, but there are way too many people out there both with and without credibility making too many claims without
really hard evidence for me to really make up my mind right now. IMHO, this is one of those times for me that I am going to take a wait and see stance
at least for now.
As for any connection to the made up 12/21/2012 doomsday prophecies, my stand on that is that there are so many people setting so many dates for so
many disasters that sooner or later one of them is going to be right by just plain dumb luck. That it could be the 12/21/2012 predictions is just as
likely as any others. In other words, just a pure cosmic lottery as to what and when it will be when ELE level disaster strikes.
