The Internet is abuzz with talk about today being the end of the world. We will show you some examples of where this all originated below. And we are posting this because, as you might have guessed, we would put the probability that today is the last day for all of us at, well, almost definitely zero.
The concept that a dark, mysterious planet X has been barreling toward the solar system at breakneck speed and in total defiance of all concepts of physics and gravity is not new. It even has a name. Nibiru is one of the most popular conspiracy theories out there. It’s so popular, in fact, that NASA and the government has actually addressed it on multiple occasions.
Is there a planet X? There is a consensus in the astronomy community that there probably does. Gravitational anomalies at Neptune, Uranus, and beyond strongly indicate that there is something else out there and it is pretty big for its effects to be felt over that great of a distance. It is also probably pretty dark and mysterious at that unimaginable distance from the Sun. But is it barreling into American airspace to destroy Texas today? Decidedly not.
Even if Nibiru was real and was doing what the theories suggest, if it were close enough for today to be the big day, we would have all noticed the superplanet hanging out in our sky for quite a while now. Of course, having said that, some people think they have seen just that, so who knows, right?
A Christian numerologist really added fuel to the fire by suggesting today was the big day according to the Holy Bible. But he also said that it might be next month or it may take seven years and today is just the beginning of that period. Even he from those amazing credentials is not completely sure.
So, relax. Don’t run on the banks. Don’t store anymore doomsday supplies than you already have. Don’t quit your day job. Today is going to pass, and everything is going to be just fine. That is, of course, if you thought that everything in the world was fine on yesterday.
In Miami, there have been mandatory evacuation orders in place for days now. Now, authorities are installing a curfew effective at 4:00 PM this afternoon for anyone that may have not heeded the warnings and stayed behind. This is despite the fact that the hurricane isn’t supposed to be full-force upon Miami until sometime Sunday. Many in conspiracy circles are starting to wonder if this curfew isn’t more than advertised? Is Miami under martial law until Irma passes? And what exactly will be the advancement of this if the damage is as widespread as some are predicting? Could we be seeing the government taking advantage of a bad situation to have a martial law experiment?
Hurricanes have inspired this kind of speculation plenty in the past. Katrina is the best example. After Katrina hit, the city of New Orleans’ entire infrastructure broke down, leaving a situation where there was actually a power vacuum. Could the same happen in Miami? What do you think?
Many in conspiracy circles are getting worked up about an emergency order signed by the governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands that apparently gave permission for forces to start seizing guns and ammunition ahead of the Hurricane Irma catastrophe. The truth is…well that is exactly what happened. While the authorities are denying that any actual seizure of weapons occurred (or could legally), they are not denying that the emergency order that went into effect did indeed include provisions for such, even if it was not executed.
We at the CSC don’t have to tell you what a slippery slope it is when you start signing orders that say you could do it but don’t worry, we didn’t do it this time. There is reason for concern here.
The solar eclipse event on August 21 of 2017 has sprouted some very fascinating conspiracy theories. Eclipses have fascinated humans for centuries, and this ultra-rare occasion is one of those kinds of celestial events where you can kind of understand how people were confused or even frightened. After all, it’s not that often that the sun literally goes dark in the middle of the daytime. Despite all of our wonderful scientific achievements over these past hundreds of years, there is still plenty of superstition involved when an event like this closes in. In this article, we will discuss some of the theories floating around and let you see some of the wilder videos out there that claim to provide real evidence. And then, at the end, we will tell you what we think is really going on.
It doesn’t matter which major cult-like entity you bring up from the shadows of the conspiracy world, they are probably represented here. Illuminati? Check. Freemasons? Check. Massive government cover-up? It’s all here my friend. The videos below will show you a crap-ton of symbolism that people have found that all points that something pretty amazing is going to happen on August 21. And we’re not talking about amazing in the astronomical rarity sense.
Intertwined in all of that occult symbolism stuff is our typical religious superstition. There are many Christian websites saying that August 21 has some sort of significance in the Bible and that this is at best, a signal of the beginning of the end, and at the worst, the end itself. Others are saying that the Rapture will occur on this date to coincide with the eclipse.
If all that’s not enough, there’s the doomsday theories. One enterprising site is pointing out that the path of another eclipse that will happen in seven years (we all know about that number seven, right) will cross the path of this one, forming a giant “X” across the United States. Does this mean a major catastrophe is in store for the good old red, white, and blue? Or is August 21 itself the day that the world’s most dominant superpower will begin to not exist anymore? Throw in possible calamities and the coming of the mystical planet Nibiru, and you can see that the theories are literally all over the place. We even have a video that ties Disney into it all.
Last but not least, we have people suggesting that the eclipse will make brooms stand on their own, as is always suggested at the solstices as well.
What does it all mean? What do we at Common Sense Conspiracy think is going to happen on August 21, 2017? Well, everyone that visits here often should know that far be it from us to rain on a good conspiracy theory parade, but the reality is that there just isn’t anything to see here folks. Eclipses seem strange and fantastical to us humans riding on planet Earth, but the truth is it is just a very coincidental thing in the cosmos. Something that is inevitably going to happen, and it doesn’t really mean anything in particular. What is going to happen? An eclipse. If you are in the path, the sun will almost be completely blocked from sight. It will get dark in the middle of the day. It will be weird. Strange. But occult? No, probably not.
Basically, if there is a huge calamity that day or if the Rapture happens against all odds, the real coincidence is that it happened at the same time as the eclipse, and not because of it. That may not be as fun and it may not be nearly as successful click-bait on our site here, but that is our official opinion.
The biggest thing you have to fear on August 21, 2017 is that your glasses you bought on Amazon weren’t really good enough to withstand gazing at a solar eclipse. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
A lot of news sources are tossing around a big announcement that the hacker group Anonymous made that seems to indicate that they have some knowledge that NASA is preparing to reveal to the world the existence of aliens. As is their pattern, they offer up little evidence as to how they came across this information, but only speculation. We do that here all the time, but we don’t present things as fact, or make the audience think that we have some kind of inside track that doesn’t really exist. In any case, we have said that the government might be preparing for something like this for the last several years. It seems that each time NASA unveils a big announcement, it has something to do with the search for life out there, and major discoveries in exoplanets as well as increased interest in some moons right here in our own solar system have only stoked the fire.
Anonymous makes it sound like NASA is about to tell us that aliens exist, UFOs are everywhere, and we might want to prepare for some sort of Independence Day Hollywood catastrophe. The truth is, if NASA did make such an announcement, it most likely wouldn’t be anything like that. It only takes discovering one carbon footprint or one single-celled organism out there for NASA to claim a universe-shaking discovery. They would never tell us if they found little green men, but it is conceivable that they might consider telling us that they found less exciting life forms out there. From a conspiracy perspective, one reason the government might want to go ahead with revealing this information has to do with the religious implications. Many scientists consider discovering life outside of planet Earth to be irrefutable evidence that there is no God and science has it right. There are plenty in the shadow government and New World Order types that would love to see this set off religious debate. Of course, most religions are at least somewhat prepared for this, saying things like God certainly could have handled more than just the Earth. There would also be plenty in conspiracy circles that would question the authenticity of such claims. How can we be sure that we haven’t transported life from Earth to another location (if it was found somewhere where we had already sent something that may have compromised the area)? Also, do we trust them in the first place? We have plenty of people that write in all of the time still questioning the moon landing and whether it is a hoax. So, while NASA and the mainstream media may represent this as irrefutable evidence, that doesn’t mean it won’t be questioned and debated. In any case, it would be interesting for sure. We will continue to monitor this and weigh in if such an announcement should actually occur.
In little more than a week’s time, we have seen multiple events that have made a lot of eyebrows rise worldwide in conspiracy circles. For veterans to this scene, this explanation is probably not necessary (although you might still find it interesting or want to pile on if you have any more information that you think is helpful). However, the political climate among other things has a lot of people on edge, and that means that more people than ever before are turning to alternative news sources and opinions. This is an overwhelmingly great thing, and we are proud to have all newcomers. This is a primer for those that might wonder why so many people think what they think when things like this happen in our world.
It is drilled into our minds from almost infancy that our government and civic system is designed to keep us safe. Safety is one of the cornerstones of true control, and the government (all over the world) takes it very seriously. However, what if you are safe already? What if there isn’t a threat? Well, that doesn’t work out well for them, and that’s why it will never happen. So, many in conspiracy circles believe that if things are going okay in the world, the powers-that-be will work overtime to make sure that it doesn’t stay that way. That is where all of the drama about false flag operations and such originates.
Situations like the terror attacks in Britain are a great example. Are they false flag operations? Who knows? We at Common Sense Conspiracy certainly have no real evidence to present for or against. But the reason it gets tossed around is because these sorts of things are just bad enough to cause mass panic and hysteria, but not bad enough to encourage people to revolt. In other words, they want us to feel just unsafe enough that we believe the government is taking care of us. Does that mean that every major violent event in the world is a false flag operation? Absolutely not, and the CSC has repeatedly gone on the record questioning the validity of claims. As always, we like to see some evidence, preferably tangible, before we start putting theories forward. Too many people out there (we’re not saying any names) in our line of work don’t follow this rule, and they lead to the rest of us getting labelled as tin-foil hat wearers and conspiracy nuts. The reality is that there are false flag operations, and we know this. Deciphering real ones from unfounded speculation is a big part of what we do here.
Climate change is another topic that was big in the news this past week. President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris accords was a major news story and led to a lot of doomsday predictions. Now, we’re not here to give you a full scientific rundown or climate change and the evidence for or against. All we are saying is that it’s like a game. Is climate change real? Sure. Look around. Is it caused by man? Sure, probably doesn’t help anything. But is Florida going to be underwater in 2030? Now that’s getting a little crazy with it. Is the United States going to be consumed by a fireball as temperatures spiral out of control? The doomsday prophecies of climate change are ironic because of this. Almost every ardent supporter of climate change is probably vehemently against Donald Trump. Yet, they use his style of negotiation. Shoot high and hope to get something in the middle. They preach doomsday hoping that maybe they will get people to change somewhere down the line. This is probably a pretty obvious strategy to most reasonable people. However, what you may not have considered is that they also want you to be afraid. Too much gets made out of the politics of it. The Democrats want you to be afraid that the Republicans will cause your Earth to be destroyed and all your grandchildren’s children to perish. The Republicans want you to believe that the Democrats are wasting your money on a bunch of bologna. The reality is that both sides like it. Or a better description would be that the real government likes it. Once again, it promotes fear. It also promotes division. Those two things are critical aspects at keeping people (where the real power lies) in check.
So, we hope as you peruse our articles here at Common Sense Conspiracy both today and in the future, you will remember this one that kind of gives you a primer for what you will see here. No matter how one-sided a lot of things might look at first glance, a lot of times if you look closer, you’ll see that all sides benefit, not just one or the other. That’s what we call the machine at work, and believe you me, it has been working overtime in our world this past week.
Well, it depends on who you ask exactly what it means. It has never been disputed by conspiracy theorists or NASA that there is a ninth planet (Pluto, if you remember, was demoted leaving us with only eight planets once again). They just disagree on what it is called, where it might be found, and what it means for Earth and the solar system. Now, NASA is openly calling for everyday average civilians to assist it with going through thousands upon thousands of space images in the search for the mysterious ninth planet.
The program, called “Backyard Worlds: Planet 9”, is pretty simple. Despite tons of cash and manpower, the amount of images that NASA has to sift through in the search for the ninth planet is so great that they still can’t do it. They need help, and they need lots of it. So they are basically outsourcing it to the common man. Of course, they aren’t offering pay for this service, only the novelty of being part of the project and that really, really small chance that you discover the ninth planet from your bedroom. It doesn’t require any real scientific knowledge or experience. Volunteers simply review the images and mark anything that they deem to be out of the ordinary so that real astronomers from NASA can narrow down what they need to look at. It goes without saying that there will be a wide margin of error here, but when you’re dealing with things in astronomical terms, anything to narrow it down at all is better than nothing.
For conspiracy theorists, this is viewed as NASA coming clean. See, the legend of Planet Nibiru has been around for quite a while. As the story goes, Nibiru is the ninth planet, but it isn’t orbiting the sun from a freakishly long distance beyond even Pluto. It’s actually barreling straight for the Earth and has been for a very long time. When it collides with the Earth (inevitably, according to the theory), it will be the sort of cataclysm that ended the dinosaurs, only this time it will be humanity. NASA has long denied that this is a thing, and they still do. They have even recognized the theory with informational videos explaining just why it wouldn’t make any sense whatsoever to believe that a huge planet is hurtling toward the Earth at breakneck speeds because, for one thing, of the gravitational consequences of that. Basically, if Nibiru was where conspiracy theorists say it is, then everything as we know it would be different. Of course, conspiracy theorists debate that with their own facts and figures and gravitational calculations. In any case, many are taking this as NASA coming clean about Nibiru, although it doesn’t really seem that way from where we are standing. Some are insinuating that Nibiru is getting dangerously close, so NASA is reaching out for help before it’s too late. Others say that NASA wants a civilian to discover Nibiru so that they can cover up the covering up all these years. A backyard hero would make many believe that they really just didn’t know about it all this time. These are only a couple of conspiracy theories about NASA’s surprising announcement.
For what it’s worth, this is not the only instance of NASA and other organizations reaching out for the public’s help. The Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence program (SETI) has used the processing power of civilian computers for many years now. When you are not using your computer, you can arrange to have SETI use it to scan for radio signals and other such data in the cosmos. To date, nothing has come from either program. What do you think? Is NASA asking for help because they really can’t find Nibiru? Is the ninth planet just another thing to teach the kids in their textbooks, or is a major space catastrophe just around the corner? We want to hear your opinions in the comments below.
