    World ending conspiracy theory falls flat following prediction that mysterious planet Nibiru was ‘set to wipe out all life’

    If you cancelled plans today in preparation for the world ending today, you shouldn’t have – because it hasn’t.
    Unsurprisingly, the world carried on turning as normal, despite predictions that a series of apocalyptic earthquakes would wipe out all life on our planet.
    Conspiracy theorists predicted that a mysterious Planet X, also known as Nibiru would obliterate the Earth – although it should be noted that Nibiru’s existence has never actually been proven.
    In fact, the theory was debunked earlier today by a fed-up NASA employee.
    Scientist David Morrison said: ““You’re asking me for a logical explanation of a totally illogical idea.
    “There is no such planet, there never has been, and presumably there never will be — but it keeps popping up over and over.”
    Way back in 2008 he wrote on his blog, the Washington Post reports: “I assumed that Nibiru was the sort of Internet rumor that would quickly pass.
    “I now receive at least one question per day, ranging from anguished (‘I can’t sleep; I am really scared; I don’t want to die’) to the abusive (‘Why are you lying; you are putting my family at risk; if NASA denies it then it must be true.’)”
    Of course, Nibiru was also meant to ‘destroy’ the Earth earlier this year, on September 23, but the apocalypse never came.
    Apparently, the build up to today’s ‘apocalypse’ had been obvious to those ‘in the know’ with an increase of seismic activity across the Earth’s surface in the last month symbolising Nibiru’s imminent arrival.
    Writer Terral Croft told the Express: “Global seismic activity reaches a peak in the second two weeks of November moving into December 2017.
    “The predicted backside alignment quake event is scheduled for November 19, 2017, when the Earth passes behind the sun relative to the Black Star [Nibiru].”
    Croft believes that the series of recent earthquakes and volcanoes have been caused by the gravitational pull of Nibiru as it travels closer and closer to Earth.
    NASA also refuted the claims, stressing that the planet can’t possibly exist because its gravitational forces would have already stripped Earth of its moon.
