Today on "This Podcast is a Secret," we dive into the mysteries and conspiracies surrounding Planet X, also known as Nibiru. We'll explore the supposed inhabitants, the Anunnaki, an extraterrestrial race that some believe shaped the world we live in and may one day end it. We’ll discuss key researchers and the surrounding conspiracies of a superior alien race, the end of the world, and even alien telepathy. Tune in for an audio clip that sets the stage for our deep dive.

This Podcast is a Secret Episode Five Nibiru

Segment 1: Historical Background

Origins of the Nibiru Cataclysm Theory: Zecharia Sitchin: Zecharia Sitchin (1920-2010) was an author and researcher known for his works on ancient astronauts and the theory that extraterrestrial beings visited Earth long ago. Born in Azerbaijan, raised in Palestine, and later moving to the United States, Sitchin focused on ancient Sumerian texts. His interpretations suggested evidence of advanced alien technology influencing human civilization.

The 12th Planet (1976): In his book "The 12th Planet," Sitchin introduced his theory that the ancient Sumerian gods, the Anunnaki, were actually extraterrestrial beings from a distant planet called Nibiru. He proposed that Nibiru is a massive, undiscovered planet in our solar system with an elongated orbit that brings it close to Earth every 3,600 years. According to Sitchin, the Anunnaki came to Earth around 450,000 years ago to mine gold and created humans through genetic manipulation to serve as their labor force.

Ancient Texts: Sitchin based his theories on readings of Sumerian texts like the Enuma Elish and the Epic of Gilgamesh, interpreting them as historical accounts of the Anunnaki's interactions with humanity. Despite his popularity, Sitchin's work has been widely criticized by scholars for its lack of linguistic accuracy and scientific basis.

Nancy Lieder: Nancy Lieder, a self-described psychic from Wisconsin, claimed that as a girl, she was abducted by grey extraterrestrials called Zetans, who implanted a communication device in her brain. In 1993, she began receiving messages from these aliens warning of an impending collision between Earth and a planet called Planet X, later identified as Nibiru. Lieder created the website Zetatalk in 1995 to share these warnings and survival plans.

Segment 2: Key Conspiracy Theories

The Nibiru Cataclysm: According to Sitchin, Nibiru's passage near Earth has caused past cataclysms and will cause future ones. This idea was further spread by Nancy Lieder.

Core Elements of the Theory: Rogue Planet: Nibiru is described as a large, rogue planet or brown dwarf with a highly elliptical orbit, bringing it into the inner solar system every few thousand years. Its approach is believed to cause massive gravitational upheavals, leading to extreme tides, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and chaotic weather patterns.

Historical Cataclysms: Supporters of the theory often claim that previous encounters with Nibiru caused significant disasters on Earth, such as the biblical flood or the sinking of Atlantis, recorded in ancient myths and legends.

Predicted Dates: Various dates have been predicted for Nibiru's catastrophic arrival, including May 2003, December 2012, and 2017, but none have materialized. Despite this, the theory persists.

Astronomical Searches: While some distant objects in our solar system, like Sedna and Eris, suggest there might be something big out there, there is no definitive proof of Nibiru. Infrared surveys and upcoming tools like the Vera C. Rubin Observatory might provide more answers.

Debunking Claims: Astronomers and scientists have repeatedly debunked the existence of Nibiru, pointing out that such an object would be visible and cause noticeable effects in the orbits of outer planets. Most photographs claiming to show Nibiru are lens flares or false images.

Segment 3: Government Involvement and Cover-ups

Secret Projects and Documents: Some theories suggest that governments worldwide have known about Nibiru for decades and are secretly preparing for its arrival through large-scale construction of underground bunkers and continuity of government facilities. Alleged whistleblowers and leaked documents hint at these preparations, although there is no concrete evidence.

NASA and Astronomical Institutions: NASA and other institutions have consistently debunked Nibiru, emphasizing that if such a planet were on a collision course with Earth, it would be visible by now. Prominent scientists like Neil deGrasse Tyson have also spoken out against the theory, pointing out the lack of scientific evidence.

Our Favorite Thing About the Nibiru Cataclysm: I am a sucker for any apocalyptic story or conspiracy. This one has it all - world-ending cataclysms and destruction, aliens, ancient texts, and mystery - so much fun.
