Look! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a giant asteroid headed straight for us!
When they say art imitates life and vice versa, an example of this would probably not be a cataclysmic disaster in movies like Armageddon and Deep Impact, where an extinction-level asteroid is bulleting towards Earth to wipe out mankind.
Well, now it’s seems there is a lot of debate about whether or not an asteroid will pass or collide with Earth on February 25th.
Back in December 2016, NASA confirmed an asteroid would miss us by an estimated 32 million miles, which is about 1/3 of the distance between the Earth and the sun – and that’s a pretty comfortable distance.
But they are also admitting the distance is only an estimation because it’s unpredictable.
Dr. Joseph Nuth of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center announced an “extinction-level” event – like the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs – will pass us by. But he pessimistically said, “The biggest problem, basically, is there’s not a hell of a lot we can do about it at the moment.”
However, a Russian astronomer, Dr. Dyomin Damir Zakharovich, disagrees with NASA’s theory and believes the asteroid (or possibly a comet) nicknamed WF9 will collide with our planet on February 16th and result in a mega-tsunami.
And Dr. Zakharovich not only believes NASA is wrong, but believes they are intentionally keeping this doomsday asteroid a secret.
According to Zakharovich:
“The object they call WF9 left the Nibiru system in October when Nibiru began spinning counterclockwise around the sun. Since then, NASA has known it will hit Earth.
But they are only telling people now. If the asteroid hits Earth, it could destroy cities or cause a tsunami. We are all in peril.”
But NASA refutes the Russian astronomer’s theory and released a statement:
“The trajectory of 2016 WF9 is well understood, and the object is not a threat to Earth for the foreseeable future.”
But if certain plots like in Armageddon and Deep Impact are any indication as to why NASA would possibly withhold mankind-ending information, it’s because telling the public would create worldwide panic and anarchy.
If you think about it, of course NASA and governments around the world would withhold information like that, and it would take a whistleblower to break the news and warn the rest of the world.
Dr. Zakharovich might just be that scientist whistleblower who warned us all and uncovered a global conspiracy.
That is until you do more research and discover who this guy really is.
Dr. Zakharovich is not an actual astronomer. He’s apparently a “self-proclaimed” astronomer.
He’s also a complete conspiracy theorist who believes the asteroid originated from a fictional planet called Nibiru, or as it’s more commonly referred to, “Planet X,” which is a hypothesized planet on the edge of our solar system.
Many conspiracy theorists like Dr. Zakharoivich believe the planet Nibiru is set to collide with Earth in October of 2017, having been driven here by the gravitational pull from a binary star which is a twin of our sun.
There is no scientific research that backs up his claim.
In fact, the name Dyomin Damir Zakharovich seems to have only surfaced online in recent months and only connects to doomsday reports regarding the fictional planet. Likewise, Nibiru only became more popular after NASA denied the claims it exists.
NASA said of Nibiru:
“Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax. Obviously, it does not exist.”
It’s most likely a pseudonym, but anything is possible. Could it be this pseudonym was created to protect the safety and identity of a legitimate scientist? Maybe even a NASA scientist?
Probably not. But even though this screams internet hoax and a delusional conspiracy theory, would it be outside of NASA’s realm to lie to protect worldwide civility in the final days of mankind?
But sometimes life is stranger than fiction.
