New Delhi:

Prophecies say the upcoming solar eclipse on August 21 is a sign of the impending doom brought by Nibiru planet in September. Tales of the doomsday and apocalypse has been around since 2003- claiming that the mysterious planet will collide with Earth. The identical thing was stated in 2012 by various theories. But is it really true? Will the world end in September 2017?

Let's analyze what happened in 2012 and what are the chances of the recent predictions of 2017 doomsday.

End of World in 2012?

Nibiru ideated by Nancy Lieder in 1955 described the Nibiru cataclysm a disastrous encounter between the Earth and a large planetary object. Nibiru is based on the myth of Babylonian and Sumerian mythology. She warned that Nibiru would collide with Earth in May 2003, but when no cataclysmic event occurred her followers chose December 2012 as the new date for a collision, neatly coinciding with the end of the Mayan calendar. However, the idea is not accepted or supported by NASA scientist Dr. John Carlson.

Dr. Carlson explained the Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth in 2012, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye. Obviously, it does not exist. Eris is real, but it is a dwarf planet similar to Pluto that will remain in the outer solar system; the closest it can come to Earth is about 4 billion miles.

For any claims of disaster or dramatic changes in 2012, where is the science? Where is the evidence? There is none, and for all the fictional assertions, whether they are made in books, movies, documentaries or over the Internet, we cannot change that simple fact. There is no credible evidence for any of the assertions made in support of unusual events taking place in December 2012.

Despite the predictions of doomsday theories, the world would not end on December 21, 2012. Doomsday has been predicted in the year 2003, 2007, 2012, and 2015. However, few scientists have raised questions about the existence of Nibiru and have even said the planet is not real.

What about 2017 doomsday?

Earth may face doomsday as a mysterious planet named Nibiru will collide with it in September, according to conspiracy theorists, who believe the upcoming solar eclipse will mark the end of the world as it will call for the apocalypse.  

North America will witness a solar eclipse on August 21 for the first time in 99 years. The solar eclipse will take place when the moon will pass in front of the Sun. The process will cast darkness across the swaths of Earth’s surface.

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will witness an eclipse of the sun for the first time in 99 years, where Moon will pass in front of the sun, casting darkness across swathes of the Earth's surface. Called the Great American Eclipse, this would be a once-in-a-lifetime celestial spectacle.

David Meade, the author of ‘Planet X – The 2017 Arrival’, has claimed that Nibiru, a planet also known as Planet X, will hit the Earth on September 23, 2017.

However, scientists have denied the existence of Nibiru. Still, Meade believes he is right after having stumbled upon some passages from The Bible and has justified his claims.

Earlier, Meade had said that Nibiru will mark the end of the world in October, but now he claims that doomsday will arrive in September. Reports say Meade and other conspiracy theorists are only leaning on passages from The Bible to support their theory and they do not have any strong evidence.

He pointed to warnings in the Old Testament book of Isaiah, Chapter 13, Verses 9 to 10, which reads, "See, the Day of the Lord is coming - a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger - to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it. "The Stars of Heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising Sun will be darkened and the Moon will not give its light."

According to Meade, this passage is linked to what he has dubbed the "33 Convergence", where a strand of coincidences all includes the number 33.
