Planet X And 2012

Posted by CainEnabled , 05 March 2010 · 296 views

2012 apocalyse end of the world nibiru planet x tortoise
So have you heard about this latest prophecy of doom? Well it's not really that new. I suppose it's been around for a bit now.

Planet X. Nibiru. It's supposedly slated to collide with Earth in 2012, which would obviously cause hijinx and catastrophes of apocalyptic proportions.

Can we give it a rest? Seriously?

Nibiru. That sounds like a yuppie coffee house. I mean, if you're going to have a doomsday scenario, at least pick something that sounds remotely scary.

After 2012 can we just let the fuckin doom and gloom subside?

I mean, at least wait until 2016 when we're going to be destroyed by a cartoon fuckin tortoise. That's something I could get behind. I could believe in that...but planet Nibiru? Fuck off.

That was a well researched argument by anybody's standards.

Hey, folks! I'm off to Nibiru's for a latte. An espresso of doom. Extra despair on that espresso of doom, thanks.
:snork_tanz:



There is nothing so stupid that no humans will believe it. Make up the most ridiculous and crazy story you can imagine, and there will be some carbon-based life forms that are sure it is true.
So many people really want to believe that stuff. A few months ago I was at work listening to the others marvelling that the world would end in 2012. They were talking about the Mayan calendar. I don't think they had heard about Nibiru. Anyway, when I expressed doubt about the apocalypse, one young fellow immediately invented some more "evidence" and said, "It's in the bible too..." He just made it up, right there on the spot! Anything to keep alive the idea that something special was going to happen. I went back to my work and left them to scare each other with their "spooky" stories.

I've encountered this type of creativity a few times. It's amazing what people will invent to try and validate their point of view.

One particular Christian, to show me that I am a terrible person for being atheist, pointed out that even Jeffrey Dahmer was a devout Christian. First of all. Dahmer was a Christian until age 5, and then was not affiliated with any religion at all for most of his life, until he was imprisoned. Only then did he decide to re-join the Christian faith, shortly before dying at the hands of his cell-mate.

And besides, if I'm not Christian and Jeffrey Dahmer was, that's one less thing I have in common with a serial killer. I don't see how I'm the bad guy here.
