Maya Myth Moment–Planet X or Nibiru

Maya Myth Moment–Planet X or Nibiru

Today’s Maya Myth Moment involves what the pseudo-scientists like to call Planet X. It often is called Nibiru and is said to be this massive planet or left over planet depending on whom one talks to, that is on this collision course with Earth.  And of course, this has found its way into the Maya meme for Dec. 21, 2012.

Well, let’s look at it from this perspective.  If there was a planet about to collide with the Earth in the next 26 days, don’t you think if you went outside you’d be able to see it?

I heard one reason why we can’t was because it’s coming in more from the Southern Hemisphere and really can’t be seen north of the Equator, which seemingly falls into the category of “anything to keep a good fish story going.”

NASA has said there is no impending doom associated with a coming collision with a mysterious planetary form in the next month.

Next myth, please.
