As the day of the supposed alignment that could end with the comet Elenin striking Earth approaches, conspiracy theory websites, forums, and message boards are lighting up with chatter that ranges from significant to completely maniacal. As always, Common Sense Conspiracy takes a look at some of these and tries to see if we can find a fact trail, a means of documenting some of the claims with factual evidence.
First of all, it has been reported that a White House letter leaked to the public expressed a concern that our government agencies (and the rest of the Earth for that matter) should be prepared in the case of a cataclysmic comet impacting the Earth. According to the reports, the government has long considered an asteroid collision as a possible disaster, but the possibility of a comet striking Earth has been mostly overlooked. The timing of the letter is the interesting part. This letter supposedly leaked in October 2010. This is interesting because it is two months from when the comet Elenin was discovered and all of the chaos and confusion began.

The comet Elenin, a target of worldwide hysteria, may be falling apart. This is from a report from Space.com that was posted just six hours earlier from the writing of this article. It seems there is some video evidence that the comet is fading fast.
Evidence suggests that the comet Elenin’s close pass to the sun in August did not leave it in good shape. Videos and pictures are showing less and less cohesion of the icy comet. Of course, on the other side of things, a lot of people believe this is more disinformation being spread by the government and NASA, the latter of which recently released a public video explaining why the comet Elenin was not a threat to Earth in any way shape or form. The NASA video even touched on the interesting concept of the planet Nibiru. More government cover-ups or real scientific data? You be the judge.
