Censoring Nibiru-Planet X or is it just more 2012 paranoia?”
Camping was yet another Christian conservative who predicted the end of times, stating that on a fateful Saturday, Jesus Christ would return and rapture would culminate, eventually seeing the death of millions of people through fire and brimstone. The world was scheduled to end later that year on October 21, 2011, at least in Camping’s mind. As a result of his failed prediction, atheists, agnostics and even Christians chuckled in unison.
Another doomsday prophet that dared to
know the logic of the universe, and define it in human terms.
The supposedly hush-hush conspiracy is known as Nibiru or “Planet X.”
Today, people prognosticate the end of
the world, creating dramatic YouTube videos featuring footage of
natural disasters, while scientists attempt to explain the threat in
coherent terms, many of which downplay the imminent danger.
Let’s first consider what Nibiru is,
allegedly and through official confirmation.
This supposed encounter will result in
massive destruction on the earth, whether through a direct collision
or a near miss that still would still have deadly ramifications.
Planet X does exist according to scientific evidence… sort of.
Actually, Pluto was originally deemed Planet X, as soon as astronomers in the 19th century discovered evidence that there could be another planet beyond Neptune. Based on 20th century astronomer Percival Lowell’s suggestion that there were discrepancies in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune, scientists began investigating Planet X, a ninth planet to explain these discrepancies.
By 1930, Planet X was proven to exist by
astronomer Clyde Tombaugh, and it was renamed Pluto. However, by
2006, the International Astronomical Union reclassified Pluto as a

the threat, given that the originator of the Nibiru conspiracy,
Nancy Lieder of ZetaTalk, claims to have received warnings from
extra-terrestrial life forms. Her original prediction stated that
Planet X would invade our solar system by 2003, which would result
in a “pole shift” event.
Sitchin went on to say that the Sumerians had established contact with an alien race named the Anunnaki who lived on planet Nibiru.
The Anunnaki were human-like in
characteristics, which seemed to provoke numerous biblical allusions
to the bible book Genesis (i.e. the “Nephilim”), and in the opinion
Lloyd Pye, may provide a rational compromise between creationism
and evolution, since he credits the Anunnaki with creating “human
slaves” in their image.
Sitchin, now deceased, always denied the relevance of the Nibiru return in 2003.
However, he did state that the Nibiru has known of earth for over 450,000 years, and that they periodically drop in looking for minerals. (Which could explain mankind’s fascination with harvesting oil, precious metals and various other elements)
Sitchin declared Nibiru the 12th planet,
following Pluto, the sun and the moon.
Nemesis is blamed by Muller as one
significant reason for evidence of mass extinctions on earth. Though
no evidence has established Nemesis as fact, theories abound that
this reverse sun does indirectly influence our planetary conditions,
namely by disrupting the travel of comets and sending them into our
The result of this collapse could result
in two suns being visible from earth - a prediction that is
reminiscent of the Planet X prediction.
The Planet X website indicts Mark Hazlewood, James McCanney and YOWUSA.Com as perpetrators of the myth, while Discovery News reporter Ian O’Neill states that the infamous “star with wings orbiting the sun” image is actually the planet Mercury reflecting an abundance of light, which affects the camera’s charge-coupled device.
He literally refers to the ominous
Planet X image as “a smudge.”
Furthermore, the author cites a problem with differing speeds; he states that according to the Nibiru scenario and the location of the planet as of 2001, the planet moves slowly for years on end and then suddenly,

logic applied to a 2003 arrival date, but the scientific consensus
is that gravity is not on Nibiru’s side.
Mike Brown, appearing on the Discovery Channel, did not outright deny the possibility of a twin sun, but discounted the idea that it would have a major gravitational effect on other planets. Nibiru, in his belief, is too small to be solar system rupturing planet, and too far away from the alleged “Kuiper belt” that hides it from public view.
With a small size and a faraway location, Brown assures that,
The idea of a pole shift is perhaps the most interesting part of Nibiru legend, as it fits in nicely with other scenarios of global shifting, global warming/cooling and many other cataclysmic scenarios.
The pole shift theory states that at
some point, the crust of earth will slide over the mantle, thus
causing a change in where the north and south pole are located.
Proponents of this theory suggest earlier pole shifts were
responsible for mass extinction, frozen animals and drastic climate
changes throughout history.
In The Journal of Geophysical Research
(“Apparent and true polar wander and the geometry of the geomagnetic
field over the last 200 Myr”) authors Jean Besse and Vincent Courtillot explain that with the phenomenon known as “True Polar
Wander”, a change of 30 degrees has been documented but over a
period of 200 million years; however, no evidence of rapid
the Earth’s pole have ever been observed, at least since the days of
It is believed by reputable sources that
the Elenin comet will pass within 0.233 AU of the Earth, which some
are taking a sign to indicate a collision course and perhaps an
“extinction level event.” However, Elenin himself suggests the comet
is probably three or four kilometers in size, which would make it
much less catastrophic than Nibiru.
In the midst of all the confusion Nibiru
has been linked to a number of other doomsday myths and scientific
anomalies, such as the dwarf planet Eris, the hypothetical gas
2012 paranoia, stemming from the finishing of a
great cycle of 13 “b’ak’tuns” according to ancient Mayan
Originators of Nibiru first stated that
by 2001 the planet would be visible, and then changed their
prediction to 2003. The latest prediction of August 2011 comes from
mostly anonymous users on forums and video sharing sites (though

This supposed reaction to Nibiru’s presence leads to an increase in earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes - all of which coincide with Japan’s Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami of March 11, and perhaps various other natural disasters across the earth, including a 2011 outbreak of 1,448 tornadoes (and counting).
At this point in time, it is stated that Nibiru would be 2.1 AU
(astronomical units) from the earth.
By October 17, Planet X is nearest to
the earth as it has ever been; 0.232 AU, or roughly 21.57 million
miles. By November 22, a pole shirt reversal event happens when the
earth, sun and Nibiru come into alignment again. For a time,
according to predictions, Nibiru will be closer to earth than the
sun, until it draws away around February of 2012.
However, the idea that NASA is censoring
Nibiru information in order to prevent a global panic (and as we
know, panic leads to looting) is very provocative and gives the Nibiru scandal special importance. Rumor has it that Nibiru is being
tracked by NASA, alternately called the “Psyop Leonid ELEnin Comet.”
Google have been working with
each other ever since 2005, when NASA announced the two companies
would work together “on a number of technology-focused
research-and-development activities”, including
Google Sky, created
in 2007, which allows users to gaze out beyond satellite technology
and deep into space.
Users claim that Google (and thus NASA) is blocking out evidence of Nibiru’s presence on Google Sky, and dismissing the threat as a harmless comet.
As evidence, users post numerous unsubstantiated photos of an approaching Nibiru. Some conspiracy writers are even trying to connect the mysterious congressional meeting of March 13, 2008 to the forecasted planetary disaster. Supposedly, the coordinates of Nibiru (5h 53m 27s, -6 10′ 58″) are viewable by a NASA orbit diagram but not on Google Sky.
NASA and Google’s official comment
regarding the “blackout” is that there was a processing error.
NASA also claims that no planetary alignments are believed to be possible, at least for another “few decades.” Astronomers insist even if alignments were to take place, there would be no catastrophic events on the earth.
They cite numerous failed predictions of “a visible planet or sun”, as evidence that Nibiru is a hoax. They also dismiss theories of a reversal of earth’s rotation, and the idea of invading dwarf planet coming any closer than four billion miles.
NASA concludes by stating that
they are watching the happenings in space through a
Survey to identify threats of incoming or nearing asteroids.
From the Lost City of Atlantis, to Noah’s Ark, to the missing dinosaurs, we always look for destructive patterns, which could explain sudden and frightening demise.
these mysteries can be connected to a Nibiru conspiracy, and the
3600 years rule. It’s fairly easy to connect any event with a theme
going so far back in time, to an age where supernatural occurrences
were commonplace according to our historical and religious books.
Perhaps the most telling reason for our death paranoia is the fact that, as a species, we are gravely afraid of death and have a profound sense of guilt for our 'sins' against nature.
Perhaps mankind, regretting years of
murder, genocide, rape, oppression, and willful extinction of plant,
animal and fellow humans, has come to accept the culpability they
would have in an “end of the world scenario.”
In the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion (“The fear of death and religious attitudes and behavior”, Kahoe, R.D., & Dunn, R.F.), the doctors proposed a link between the fear of death and religious attitudes.
The hypothesis is that,
The doctors conducted studies on
individuals who had a very firm conviction in their faith (including
regular church attendance) and the majority of these subjects
reported not being afraid of dying.
A counselor or psychiatrist might
suggest to an anxious person (particularly in dream interpretation)
that death anxiety is not related to the fear of nonexistence, but
rather to the significance and accomplishment, one has in life. The
fear of massive death may very well be the motivation we need to
make positive changes in our lives.
We usually scoff at creationist predictions, while taking scientific hypothesis (however inconclusive) as firm logical foundations of fact. Nevertheless, the idea of an invading dwarf planet (not entirely impossible) seems to provoke even the most intelligent among us, who insist that earth could not be in serious danger based on scientific facts.
Nevertheless, in 2011, we have seen
disturbing physical evidence that science is not keeping us safe,
and that rationality is not preventing unpredictable destruction.
As far as any rumor about Google
blocking Planet X websites, this is completely untrue, as Google
was used to research practically all of the cited references in this
Obviously, there has been a lot of controversy in the way Google handles its searches, particularly after the Google Panda algorithm update. Google has admitted its aims to have “trustworthy” search results returned for broad searches, meaning that smaller websites, individual author pages, and advertising-heavy pages would probably lose high search rankings in favor of national publications, popular websites and government sponsored information.
Google is also very picky about which
sites they include on Google News, as professional quality and
referenced sources are prerequisites (touches that many amateur
truth-saying sites may lack).
A site may be penalized, or a certain
story removed from top search rankings, if there is special reason
to do so. While the item is not completely removed from the Google
index, it can be buried underneath numerous other web pages (and
most users will not search beyond 20 results) or even removed from
The Huffington Post covered a rather suspicious meeting in June of 2010, in which government officials met with Internet and technology powerhouses to discuss “net neutrality.”

Julian Assange (the founder of WikiLeaks and an Australian citizen) is already being eyed by the U.S. Government for daring to share confidential government information that implicates wrongdoing by government and or military personnel.
In fact, since the U.S. has
the right to censor anything that is perceived as promoting
terrorism, treason, or disrupting the common interest (that of a
capitalist state), the idea of removing references to controversial
events is not far-fetched in the slightest.
Worse yet, the U.S. government is already taking action to oversee and control the spread of information, with an upcoming “net censorship bill.”
Wired reports that search engines will soon have to block any and all websites that,
While the intent of the bill was an altruistic notion, (preventing online theft by limiting dealings with questionable foreign sites, and stopping illegal foreign purchases of pharmacy products), ultimately the bill is far too broad to be taken lightly by truth seekers, whistle-blowers or anyone that didn’t vote in 2008.
Its true intent is clear - to combat
foreign sites that are outside of U.S. Jurisdiction.
COICA as it called, is not merely a new bill, but an expansion of an earlier bill.
The new expansion of powers has been
called the Protect IP Act.
Whether the government’s lackadaisical response to the conspiracy is a muted and strategic reaction to impending doom, remains anyone’s guess. Comparing the search results of Google with the anti-Google searcher “Gibiru” (an alternative and “anonymous” search engine) revealed different results, but practically all of the sites that came up on Gibiru were also listed on Google.
