9 heavenly bodies to smash Earth in 2017, says theorist
Almost every year, there seems to be some sort of theory that gets anyone willing to listen to rise up and spread it. It can start very small, like from a church or a local news show, and then expand and evolve until eventually, more than half the world has heard of it.
While many of us do not believe it, theories still get passed, whether by word of mouth or by some random tweet. Sometimes, people who spread these talks can even give forth the science for its possibility, and while it won't necessarily come to fruition, it is interesting nonetheless.
Despite how fresh the New Year is, David Meade, a research scientist, has got a lot to say about a new conspiracy theory for the destruction of our planet. So much so that, according to The Sun, he's written a book about it called "Planet X - The 2017 Arrival".
While there had been reports previous to this claim about a mysterious planet called "Nibiru" on a collision course to Earth, David Meade and the book he's written state that it won't be coming here alone and in fact will be bringing friends on its way to its destination.
The Daily Mail states that Nibiru was supposed to end the world in 2003, but also that this conspiracy is but a hoax according to NASA. Still, David Meade claimed that a star will be propelling with Nibiru to our solar system. What's more, it'll be bringing with it seven orbiting bodies. The star that will be doing such a hefty job is, as David Meade calls it, a "binary star twinned from the sun".
As of the moment, there exists no current evidence of this. Readers of Mr. Meade's book, however, say that the book he's written has some facts and science but ultimately leads into some religious argument with quotes from the Bible. Despite the conspiracy theory being hardly believable, it did prove to be an interesting way to speculate the end of our planet on this New Year.
