While many of the new year’s resolution seem to fade throughout 2017, David Meade, a conspiracy theorist and author of the book Planet X- The 2017 Arrival claims that surviving a cataclysm should not be scratched off the list just yet. Since many doomsday prophecies seem to come and go on a regular basis, the scientific community does not take a special interest in Mr. Meade’s prediction, deeming it highly unlikely to occur, at least in the near future. In his vision of the apocalypse, the writer sees a distant star heading our way with one of the planet’s orbiting the alien sun crashing into Earth, ultimately annihilating all life.
Called Nibiru by many other conspiracy theorists around the world, the blue planet heading our way is said to have begun its kamikaze journey several hundreds of years ago. However, scientists who base their response to the threat on observations performed on the outskirts of our solar system, do not find any cause of concern.
According to David Meade, Nibiru, which goes by Planet X in his book, will strike Earth sometime in October 2017. Even though the star that Nibiru orbits is thought to be a twin of our own sun, there is no evidence to support the claim it actually exists, let alone travel accompanied by other celestial objects. Nevertheless, Mr. Meade;s theory claims the star in approaching out planet at an oblique angle, making it almost impossible to observe. One major conspiracy theory that supports Mr. Meade’s idea of a pending apocalypse is the fact that the Russian government is engaging in a drill for approximately 40 million people.
On the other hand, David Meade’s critics point out to the course of logic presented in his book. They say that the writer started his work in a logical manner, but his thoughts appear to shift to mystical connotations after some time. As a result, over two-thirds of Planet X- The 2017 Arrival talks about dreams and visions. Moreover, many of the evidence provided in the book have been long scraped off by competent research.
Mike Brown, a planet hunter and famous astronomer posted on Twitter in regard to David Meade’s revelation.
“In fact, the Earth is NOT going to be destroyed by [fill in crazy things on the internet here].”
Scientists also pointed out to the multitude of other apocalypse scenarios presented in the past which never came to pass, claiming these statements are only meant to confuse population.
