New Program May Mean That NASA Openly Needs Help Finding Planet Nibiru

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.

2016 WF9, the Doomsday Asteroid, is Coming in February 2017 to Destroy the World — Worried?

It’s a story that is repeated yearly.  Remember comet Elinen and what a big story that was in the conspiracy world.  There’s a new one every time you turn around, and 2016 WF9 is the first one of 2017.  According to conspiracy theorists, this asteroid, which is supposedly a chunk of Nibiru, the mysterious planet that some say is encroaching on the solar system, will smash into the Earth, causing a doomsday scenario with mega tsunamis quite possibly leaving no one left standing.  Predictably, NASA says it’s no big deal and no one should be worried.  Below are some videos from people out there pushing that this is it.  Should we even bother filing our taxes this year with the end just around the corner?  Let us know what you think.  Are you worried about 2016 WF9?

Doomsday Clock Moves Forward – Trump’s Fault?

In case you haven’t heard about this yet, the so-called Doomsday Clock is a symbolic clock that a group of international scientists that no one can pin down use to theorize on how close the Earth is to an apocalyptic world-ending event. Today, it was moved forward by a larger amount than it had in the past. The mainstream media was more than happy to blame this on Donald Trump becoming President of the United States a few days ago. However, this isn’t something that works like that. While the media and the previous administration probably would prefer for Trump to shoulder that blame, the truth is that plenty other things have happened to influence this matter. The nuclear deal with Iran along with the gift of uranium marked some of the more infamous parts of Obama’s legacy. Also, the doomsday clock puts a lot of emphasis on climate change. While the Trump administration may be no friend to climate change activists, it’s not like things are any different in that regard than the last or previous Republican Presidents. Trump may usher in the end of the world as we know it, but it certainly had nothing to do with this moment in time.

Fracking Goes to Center Stage in Questioning By Senator Bernie Sanders

You will have to navigate a whole lot of drama in this clip. Senator Bernie Sanders is grilling Scott Pruitt, Donald Trump’s nomination for head of the EPA, on climate change. As you might imagine, Pruitt rides the fence all the way through. This video has been widely spread around the Internet with it being spotlighted that Sanders broke Pruitt down by pointing out over and over again his reluctance to directly address his feelings on climate change. This is conventional Washington wizardry. The fracking commentary, if you wait for it, is much more compelling, and therefore completely ignored on social media and by the mainstream media.

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders after asking about climate change: "I'm asking your personal opinion."EPA Administrator Nominee Scott Pruitt: "My personal opinion is immaterial."Bernie Sanders: "Really? You're going to be the head of the agency to protect the environment and your personal feelings about whether climate change is caused by human activity and carbon emissions is immaterial?"Watch complete hearing here: http://cs.pn/2j8KWP2

Strawberry Moon on Summer Solstice? Recipe for Disaster or Uncanny Coincidence?

The summer solstice isn’t unusual at all. It happens regularly. A strawberry moon is a very rare indeed, even rarer than the “blue moon” in the saying. Both of them falling on the same day is priceless, and extremely rare. So, it’s no surprise that there are some people in conspiracy circles pointing to this as something to be afraid of. There are references to Israel becoming a nation again in 1948 and the like. There is also the even more rare Cherry Moon made famous by Prince, who was apparently murdered by the Illuminati.

The reality: Common Sense Conspiracy loves a good conspiracy theory as much as anyone, but there’s nothing to the strawberry moon on the summer solstice. The reality is that this is a cosmic coincidence. But here’s some great videos showing what other people think. If we’re wrong, I guess we’ll see you in the afterlife.

Did Scientists Verify the Existence of Nibiru With Acknowledgement of Planet X?

The concept that there might be another quite gigantic planet past Pluto in our solar system is nothing new.  Ever since Pluto was found, the search has been on in the astronomy community for the mystical Planet X.  The unusual orbit of Neptune and Uranus was pointed to as classic evidence of another gravitational force out there in the far reaches of the solar system, but until this past week, it was only conjecture.  Now, scientists have confirmed that the calculations are in and Planet X is real.  And when Planet X is finally discovered, there won’t be any Pluto planet debates on this one.  Planet X, according to the calculations, will be massive, perhaps even rivaling Jupiter for the title of largest planet.

Astronomers aren’t the only ones to warn of the existence of the ninth planet (Pluto got ousted, remember?).  The legend of the dark planet Nibiru on a collision course with Earth from the far reaches of the solar system is a recurring conspiracy theory that won’t quit.  As a matter of fact, we have seen serious talk about Nibiru on several different occasions over the last decade, each instance turning out to be nonsense.  But now, it’s time for the Nibiru talk to heat up again as it seems almost like scientists are confirming that Nibiru exists after all.

Bear in mind that the undiscovered Planet X and Nibiru have some major differences.  Planet X is definitely not getting any closer to Earth or the sun, and there is no reason to think that it would be likely that i could harbor life at that distance.  But it is still interesting, and you can bet there will be plenty of people talking about it as the search is on.

The Doomsday Seed Vault in Norway — Modern Day Ark?

If you think the super-elite rich aren’t worried about a worldwide catastrophe, look no further than the “Doomsday Vault” in Norway for your answer. Funded enthusiastically by Bill and Melinda Gates, this vault built under the permafrost of Norway houses hundreds of thousands of seed samples intended to be used to repopulate the Earth if a real extinction event occurred. Basically, it’s a lot like Noah’s Ark for plants, and it is a way to protect Earth the way it is now and make it possible to return it if recent extinction talks become reality. In case you haven’t heard, scientists now say that the Earth is in its sixth mass extinction period, and even mankind could be on the chopping block. Add the constant threat of nuclear war and the damage done to the Earth environmentally and it’s easy to see why a seed vault might not be such a terrible idea.
