Conspiracy theorists were convinced that a series of apocalyptic earthquakes would have ended the world as we know it
If you cancelled plans today in preparation for the world ending today, you shouldn’t have – because it hasn’t.
Unsurprisingly, the world carried on turning as normal, despite predictions that a series of apocalyptic earthquakes would wipe out all life on our planet.
Conspiracy theorists predicted that a mysterious Planet X, also known as Nibiru would obliterate the Earth – although it should be noted that Nibiru’s existence has never actually been proven.
In fact, the theory was debunked earlier today by a fed-up NASA employee.
Scientist David Morrison said: ““You’re asking me for a logical explanation of a totally illogical idea.
“There is no such planet, there never has been, and presumably there never will be — but it keeps popping up over and over.”
Way back in 2008 he wrote on his blog, the Washington Post reports: “I assumed that Nibiru was the sort of Internet rumor that would quickly pass.
“I now receive at least one question per day, ranging from anguished (‘I can’t sleep; I am really scared; I don’t want to die’) to the abusive (‘Why are you lying; you are putting my family at risk; if NASA denies it then it must be true.’)”
Of course, Nibiru was also meant to ‘destroy’ the Earth earlier this year, on September 23, but the apocalypse never came.
Apparently, the build up to today’s ‘apocalypse’ had been obvious to those ‘in the know’ with an increase of seismic activity across the Earth’s surface in the last month symbolising Nibiru’s imminent arrival.
Writer Terral Croft told the Express: “Global seismic activity reaches a peak in the second two weeks of November moving into December 2017.
“The predicted backside alignment quake event is scheduled for November 19, 2017, when the Earth passes behind the sun relative to the Black Star [Nibiru].”
Croft believes that the series of recent earthquakes and volcanoes have been caused by the gravitational pull of Nibiru as it travels closer and closer to Earth.
NASA also refuted the claims, stressing that the planet can’t possibly exist because its gravitational forces would have already stripped Earth of its moon.
Despite NASA’s statement – and the fact that the world hasn’t ACTUALLY ended – conspiracy theorists continue to believe Nibiru, and believe NASA is just all part of a system created to ‘hide the truth’.
Many of them were thought to have escaped into secret underground bunkers in preparation for the end of the world.
Back in September, NASA was forced to deny rumours of Armageddon when conspiracy theories began circulating which suggested Nibiru would crash into Earth and wipe out all life.
This theory of a wayward planet – also known as “Planet X” – became so prolific that NASA released a statement to confirm it wasn’t true.
The statement read: “Various people are ‘predicting’ that world will end on September 23 when another planet collides with Earth. The planet in question, Nibiru, doesn’t exist, so there will be no collision,” the space agency said.
“Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax.
“There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye.
“Obviously, it does not exist.”
Where does the conspiracy theory come from?
As well as noting apparent mystic markings on the pyramids in Egypt, Meade’s prediction is largely based on the Bible passage Isaiah, Chapter 13 9-10, which says: “See, the Day of the Lord is coming – a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger – to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it.
