Will Planet X Return in 2012?

Solar System Planets.

Is there really a hidden Planet X waiting to destroy our world in 2012?

A new weekend means it’s time for a new 2012 doomsday scenario, dark passengers. Of all the many theories I’ve read from the lunatic fringe and mainstream science, few seem to command the same level of debate as the mysterious Planet X. You see, just picking a name for this potential planetary destroyer that all can agree on is a challenge.

You may know it as:

  • Comet Planet
  • Demon Planet
  • Markduk
  • Nemesis
  • Nibiru
  • Nostradamus’s Comet
  • Transpluto
  • Vulcan.

No matter what you call it, Planet X is said to be big trouble for the earth and all her inhabitants. When? 2012, of course.

What’s the Deal With Planet X?

Part of what fans the flames of Planet X hysteria is that it’s a real planet found by NASA, way way way out beyond Pluto. Back whenever Pluto was still a planet, there were those who referred to Planet X as the 12th planet of our solar system. Granted, they were also counting the sun as the first planet and Luna (our moon) as the 5th planet, so when you add Planet X, it becomes the 12th Milky Way planet.

But for those of us who get that the sun and moon aren’t planets, it would just be the 10th. Pluto will always be a planet to me.

Sometimes, when astronomers find new planets, they simply call it ‘X.’ So, when NASA put out some report about finding a potential addition to the solar system in 1983, Planet X became a favorite of conspiracy theorists and doomsayers.

Why Did the Discovery of Planet X Make People Freak Out?

Apparently, the “Berlin Seal,” an ancient Sumerian tablet, showed the solar system carved on it – with one too many planets! Since we can’t entertain the thought that perhaps an ancient civilization couldn’t tell the difference between all the little bright dots they saw in the night sky, this clearly means there’s a mystery planet – a Planet x – orbiting our sun. And if ancient Sumerians knew about a planet we still don’t know about, what else can we learn from them?

Cue the Sumerian religious mythology…

Without getting into all the names, basically,  the story goes that two gods – our planet and Planet X were fighting. During the family feud, Planet X ripped his bro to shreds and went on his merry way. Since many believe the orbit of Planet X is 3,600 years, Earth had plenty of time to heal and let human life flourish. But every 3,600 years, Planet X returns to bitch slap his brother back into submission.

When will that next occur? If you guessed December 21, 2012, you’ve learned how to play the game of unrelated convergences well…

Why Can’t I See Planet X if it’s Coming Back in Two Years?

Great question! There are a ridiculous number of answers to that question; however. Many of those answers are more nuts than the Alien Super Highway 2012 doomsday scenario.

One of the more popular answers is that Planet X doesn’t maintain consistent speed at all points of its orbit. Whenever Planet X ventures way out beyond Pluto (or whatever we’re supposed to call it now), its orbit slows way down because the gravity of the sun and planets has only the slightest of effects anymore. As it starts the return trip of its orbit, Planet X speeds up. A LOT.

The reason we’re supposed to be terrified of this explanation is that once it speeds up, Planet X has an orbit that brings it into the inner solar system, potentially placing it on a collision course with Earth.

The other theory you’ll see a lot to explain why we can’t see Planet X yet is planetary government cover up. You know all those lines you see in the sky trailing after airplanes? Those are called chemtrails and the government is lining the sky with them to hinder our view of Planet X. Whenever you notice loads of chemtrails in the sky, it means Planet X is visible to the naked eye.

What Happens if Planet X is Real?

Once again, we get loads of theories about our fate should Planet X return in 2012. These include:

  • Earthquakes
  • Hurricanes
  • Impact with Earth
  • Polar reversal
  • Polar shift
  • Propels Earth into the sun
  • Tsunamis
  • Volcanoes.

It’s like Billy Bob Thornton said in Armageddon, “basically the worst parts of the Bible.”

So, Really…What’s the Big Deal About Planet X?

That’s the thing, dark passengers. Insane theories – like Planet X, the world not being flat, the earth not being the center of the solar system – are all considered nuts until we prove them to be accurate. It’s pretty damning that Planet X was first supposed to come get us in 1997, using the Hale-Bopp comet as cover. Then it’s arrival was recalculated to 2003.

Now, we’re looking at the return of Planet X on December 21, 2012, with it being visible in 2009. Except it’s currently nearing the end of 2010 and I still can’t see it. Can you?

All that said, technically, it is possible there could be a rogue planet racing around the solar system on a irregular orbit. It is possible that the governments of the world and NASA already know about it, yet stay silent. It is possible that all the other dates for the arrival of Planet X were deliberate misinformation to lull us into a false sense of security.

It is possible that Planet X will return to wreak havoc on us all on December 21, 2012.

Is it likely? Probably not. But just about anything could happen, right?

What do you think about Planet X? Is this demon planet poised to bring the pain or is it just another scary story from the lunatic fringe? You tell me.

    I find this quite interesting. I haden’t heard of planet X up until reading this.

    Oh, and no I don’t think it’s a demon planet, just another scary story!
