Nibiru. 'Ere we go again...

Death planet Nibiru ‘is going to appear on April 23 and kill us all, conspiracy theorists claim

Cancel your summer plans, forget what you’re doing in May and prepare for the end of life.

That’s the advice if you believe conspiracy theorists who say that the world is going to end with biblical rapture as ‘death planet’ Nibiru appears in the sky.
...
We are going to see the rise of the Antichrist, the onset of World War III and seven years of Tribulation and planet Nibiru – an as yet unproven entity – will appear in the skies.
...
'David Meade, who has previously predicted the end of the world, said: ‘By early April of 2018, the disappearance of the Church (all true Christians worldwide also known as the Rapture) will occur.

‘This will be followed quickly by the rise of the Antichrist, the appearance of Planet X and World War III.

‘Seven years of Tribulation will ensure. This is beyond any shadow of doubt.’

Well, WWIII perhaps, if Trump the Cunt gets his way...

But the 'Rapture'? Bunch of wankers.

I can't not post this, can I?

I wrote this for the RDF sci-writing compo. Can't remember if this was the one in progress when the axe fell, but I think so.

Meanwhile, 2018GE3* a "Tunguska event" sized object (about 65metres across) was discovered in the past few days and passed within half a lunar distance on April 15th. This is the largest and closest near miss observed since Tunguska.
...
"According to wikipedia, 2018 GE3 is the largest known asteroid to pass that close to Earth in observational history," says Jäger. "It was shining like a 13th magnitude star at the time of my observations."

YouTube Nibiru ‘fear porn’ industry’s doomsday profits exposed

The world spectacularly failed to end today when a mysterious death planet did not show up in the sky and spark a biblical apocalypse.
But you can be assured that the no-show of Nibiru will not silence the dozens of crackpots and conspiracy theorists who make a living from claiming the apocalypse is nigh.
We have discovered that so-called Planet X ‘investigators’ are earning tens of thousands of pounds a year from the false claim that a mysterious hidden world is about to reappear and wipe out humanity.
These ‘fear porn’ peddlers pocket up to £30,000 per annum simply by running a YouTube channel which collects together dubious ‘sightings’ of a rogue planet or brown dwarf star on a collision course with Earth, according to figures from Social Blade.
And even though YouTube has been on a ‘demonetisation’ spree which has seen it block and censor potentially controversial content, the video site told us that videos which ‘investigage’ Nibiru do not break its guidelines.
We spoke to an anonymous campaigner from a group called Truth and Reason Over Litany and Lies (TROLL), which is on a mission to debunk wild claims about a planet on a collision course with Earth.
They told us that dodgy YouTubers were racking up millions of views by snapping pictures of lens flare or clouds and hailing them as proof that a world called Nibiru, Planet X or Wormwood is headed our way.
The people making these claims often tie religion into their ‘prophecies’, drawing on ancient texts and biblical passages to give their claims a veneer of credibility.
Some of them have criminal records, whilst others threaten and bully anyone who dares to question their wild claims.
They raise money from YouTube advertising as well as book sales, conference tickets and direct sponsorship from fans.


There's always money scams behind these cons. It isn't just a bunch of delusional crackpots to be pitied, though I expect there are some genuine deluded out there.
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.
