At Common Sense Conspiracy, it’s fair to say that we have reported on the panic surrounding the Elenin comet with some disdain. As the theories seem to grow and get more and more ridiculous in nature, it became easier to dismiss it as a foolish notion probably conceived by aluminum foil-wearing maniacs. After looking at the facts objectively over the last several days, we determined that most of the Elenin paranoia is probably unfounded. The reason for this is there just simply isn’t enough factual data to tie it all up into a nice bow, and then the merging of Elenin with other conspiracy standbys, like Nostradamus predictions and the complete insanity surrounding the Nibiru planet, only took away from its credibility. However, our mission statement here is to present the facts and let you decide for yourself, and some new developments have to be reported.
On September 16, 2011, which is tomorrow for me as I write this article, the comet Elenin will reach a
state of alignment between the Earth, the planet Saturn, and the sun. What does this mean? As usual, it depends on who you ask, but one of the main effects that almost all of the theories about Elenin agree on is that these alignments cause earthquakes, in some cases, massive ones. Now this is where the inconsistency in data comes in. Do a quick search for Elenin on the net, and temporarily ignore Common Sense Conspiracy, where you know you will get only facts. Visit a few sites that claim to explain this phenomenon and then come back here and exchange results. What we found was that the information across the web is terribly, horrifically inconsistent. For example, one site is trying to create panic for tomorrow because it is the first planetary alignment of the comet Elenin. Cue the scary music here, but if you really stop and think about it, how can this be possible? The comet Elenin has been around for thousands of years and this is not the first time it has aligned between the planets, our Earth, and the sun. As a matter of fact, another website, The Elenin Timeline, actually breaks down each planetary alignment, dating all the way back to 2004. According to this site, not only have there been plenty of alignments, but almost every possible configuration you can think of is documented. They even document the phase of the moon here, insinuating that a full moon during an alignment can have even graver consequences for our tectonic plates.
