Is the world coming to an end?
There is a new theory catching people’s interest: According to the Mayan calendar, the world is going to end on December 21 2012 (21.12.2012) . Is this something we should take seriously? Many wonder if the government is hiding evidence of the Earth being in danger. Is our government lying to us?
Planet X Nibiru 2012
From the beginning of history, countless profits have come forward claiming final Doomsday scenarios. One often quoted today is that the collision with Nibiru, also known as Planet X, will result in the destruction of the Earth and the extinction of life.
It is believed that the Nibiru planet only makes a complete orbit around the Sun once every 3,600 years, making it very difficult to observe. The existence of Planet X is backed by Summerian writing more than 2,500 years old. The ancient Summerian civilization had great knowledge about mathematics and astronomy, and although scientists are empty-handed of any hard evidence to support the existence of Nibiru, many uphold the detailed Summerian writings as proof of its existence.
An experiment in the 1980s used infrared rays to discover and record more than 350,000 objects in the night sky. Many of these objects were classified as “unidentified”, and from there a new conspiracy was born. Conspiracy theorists claimed that among the many “unidentified” objects newly catalogued, planet Nibiru was one of them; and that it was being tracked covertly by the US government. Later studies using telescopes found for certain that Nibiru was not present in the collection of objects. In fact, none of the newly discovered objects even turned out to be planets. Despite these findings, conspiracy theorists continue to believe that the government is hiding the truth.
The Mayan Calendar 2012
One of the most controversial calendars in the world, the Mayan calendar, ends in 2012. December 21 2012 more precisely. Many people believe that when the Mayan calendar 2012 ends the whole world will come to an end. Some scientists say the Mayans had astronomy and mathematics knowledge so advanced that it can predict the future.
The Mayan calendar is much longer than 365 days.
The 2012 Planetary Alignment
Another well known conspiracy theory claims that an astronomical event will take place in 2012: the planetary alignment. They theory says that in 2012, when all the planets align together, many strange and powerful weather events will take place on Earth. But scientists say any planet alignment in the near future will not happen, and even if it did happen it would have no impact on Earth.
Solar Magnetic Shift
The magnetic poles of the Sun will flip in the near future (since writing this article, the Sun’s poles flipped in 2011). Estimates point to this phenomenon happening in 2012. Many think this flip will bring us the most powerful solar storms in history, causing extensive damage to the Earth and spouting apocalyptic events that lead to the end of the world.
