The hoaxes about the end of days are as old as life itself. The last Apocalypse hoax predicts that today, April 23rd, a hypothetical planet called Nibiru or Planet X will collide with the Earth and cause numerous catastrophes.
NASA considers the Nibiru-related theories as absurd
“The planet in question, Nibiru, does not exist, so there will be no collision, the history of Nibiru has existed for years and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables, it is a deception of the Internet,” NASA said on its website.
David Morrison is one of the NASA’s most critical scientists and, back in 2011, he stated he was receiving up to five e-mails per day from people asking about the Planet X, the mythical home of Sumerian Annunaki gods.
Morrison defined the theories related to Nibiru as “absurd” as some theories say that Nibiru could not have been located yet because it is hidden behind the sun.
“It would be bright, it would be easily visible to the naked eye, if it were real it would have a mass capable of disturbing the orbits of Mars or Earth, we would see changes in the orbits,” the astronomer said, referring to Nibiru or Planet X.
Stephen Hawking’s prediction regarding the Apocalypse
Now, returning to science, Stephen Hawking drew up a list of his own predictions about the end of days:
- Virus – “Genetic engineering can be done in a small laboratory,” said Hawking referring to a man-made deadly virus which can put life on Earth to an end;
- Nuclear War and Climate Change – “As citizens of the world, we have a duty to alert the public about the unnecessary risks we live with every day, and about the dangers we predict if governments and societies do not act now to make obsolete nuclear weapons and prevent further change climatic,” warned Hawking;
- Extraterrestrials – “If the aliens will visit us, the result would be similar to when Columbus arrived in America, which was not very good for the Native Americans,” said the astrophysicist;
- Robots – AI could bring the Apocalypse, too, since the “success in the creation of artificial intelligence would be the greatest event in the history of humanity, unfortunately, it could also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks,” according to Stephen Hawking;
In the end, enjoy this day because Apocalypse will not come today since Nibiru or Planet X is not real.
