A Comprehensive Doomsday 2012 Fact Sheet

The rogue planet Nibiru collides with the Earth. – Image credit: The Awakening

by david morrison

There is widespread and unnecessary fear of doomsday on December 21, 2012. Some people worry about a Maya prophesy of the end of the world, others fear a variety of astronomical threats such as collision with a rogue planet. Opinion polls suggest that one in ten Americans worry about whether they will survive past Dec 21 of this year, and middle-school teachers everywhere report that many of their students are fearful of a coming apocalypse. Following are brief facts that address these doomsday fears.


Mayan Calendar: The Maya calendar, which is made up different cycles of day counts, does not end this year. Rather, one cycle of 144,000 days (394 years) ends and the next cycle begins.

Mayan Prophecy: The ancient Maya did not predict the end of the world or any disaster in December 2012. Such doomsday predictions are a modern hoax.

Planet Nibiru: Nibiru is probably the minor name of a god found in ancient Mesopotamian writing. There is no planet named Nibiru, and the fictional books by economist Zecharia Sitchin about a civilization on this planet are a hoax.

Rogue Planet Headed for Earth: For the past decade there have been reports of a rogue object (Planet X, or Nibiru, or Hercubolus, or even Comet Elenin) that will collide with Earth in December 2012. These claims are not true. If such a threatening world existed, it would be one of the brightest objects in the sky, and astronomers would have been tracking it for years. If it existed, its gravity would be distorting the orbits of planets, especially Mars and Earth. Astronomers know that it does not exist.

Planet Alignments: There is no alignment of planets in Dec 2012. There is an approximate lining up of the Earth and Sun and the center of our Galaxy in late December, but this happens every year. In any case, planet alignments have no effect on the Earth.Continued below.

Pole Shift: There is nothing strange this year about either the magnetic poles or the rotational poles of the Earth. The magnetic polarity changes every million years or so, but that is not happening now, and it probably takes thousands of years when it does happen. A sudden change in the rotational axis has never happened and is not possible. If there were any change in the Earth’s rotation, it would be instantly apparent by failure of our GPS systems.

Increasing Disasters: Our planet is behaving normally in 2012, although we see more and more news stories about natural disasters. There has been no increase in earthquakes or volcanic eruptions. There has been an increase in extreme weather, including both droughts and floods, which are partly attributable to global warming, but this has nothing to do with a 2012 doomsday.

Solar Outbursts: The Sun’s ongoing 11-year activity cycle is expected to peak in 2013, not 2012. Solar outbursts (flares and CMEs) can damage orbiting satellites but will not hurt us on the surface. The strength of the 2013 solar maximum is predicted to be lower than average, not higher.

      Its nice to see you covered all the sources of disinfo, but missed the major points that are always ignored in the media….like the book of Immanuel Velikovsky.
      Velikovsky compiled many ancient sources, including the Maya, over 60 years ago…decades before Sitchin published his first book. Much of his book were taken from other book and texts dating back hundreds to thousands of years. According to his works the Maya did indeed tell us of a disaster that would bring ruin to the planet. They said mountains would fall and others would be born in a single day. They also said the oceans would rise up and cover the lands.
      according to the Maya, as well as many ancient cultures, these events happened to them and would happen in a future date. According to Velikovsky that future date would be the early 21st century. he said people in this time would begin to see an increase in quakes, severe weather, fireballs and volcanic eruptions…all of which are occurring at this time…there have been about 10 quakes over a mag 7 in 2012, prior to this, a 7 was something that occurred once a decade. Look at the insane weather going on right now and the planet is more volcanically active than ever before in our recorded history.
      One can claim Velikovsky was a quack, but you can’t deny he predicted the state of the early 20th century to the letter.
      according to all the ancient sources, these changes are brought on by a celestial object. The Maya called it the Black Sun, the Egyptians called it the Destroyer and they both described it as a fiery red serpent. This object was NOT the fictional planet x/ Nibiru, which was created as disinfo, it was a brown dwarf and our sun’s companion.
      why can’t we see this object? because we’re are looking or a planet on the same elliptic as all the planets. This thing doesn’t orbit the sun…they orbit each other, which is why no one can see it. NASA of course knows its there and knows where to look…they built a telescope at the south pole to track it, because according to all ancient sources, this object comes at us from the south.
      people can believe this if they like or call it a hoax, but they can’t deny Velikovsky’s prediction.

        “…there have been about 10 quakes over a mag 7 in 2012, prior to this, a 7 was something that occurred once a decade.”

        Not Quite. There has been an average of 13 mag 7 or greater earthquakes per year since 1973. Here are the totals per year as downloaded from the USGS.

          How common are three in a week, on completely different sides of the world…like just happened this last week? We are half way through the year and already passed the average. One point of interest in the list you compiled…after 1995, the number of large quakes started to increase. There was 20 in 2011 and 24 in 2010. At no other time since 1973 have there been such a large number of big quakes in two consecutive years…will 2012 make three years in a row?
          Thanks for the info, Jon :smile:

      David Morrison has been blocking everyone from his website who has a different opinion from him, NASA and THE GOVERNMENT , I don`t know if Nibiru is real or not but i wonder why would the US GOVERNMENT and NASA have thousands of paid debunkers debunking something that does not exist. We have other problems to worry about NIBIRU could be a distraction while they steal your money or it could be a distraction from the thousands of innocent people OBAMA is killing everyday,it could be a distraction from the coming martial law,police state, or the coming great depression, or the coming financial collapse or the coming round up to the FEMA CAMPS where the guillotines are waiting for you. It could also be a distraction from the Government poisoning your food and water making new laws to take away your rights and freedom and keep you a slave in a prison planet. It could be a distraction from ALL THE CIA AND GOVERNMENT FALSE FLAG when debunkers are coming strong it mean something is up. NASA and the GOVERNMENT have been lying to the whole world for the last 100 years about almost everything WHY SHOULD ANYONE BELIEVE THEM NOW. Don`t forget all the new deadly virus and diseases they are creating in their labs and spreading around the world. Also don`t forget their NEW WORLD ORDER AND THEIR DEPOPULATION PLAN.

    • True Facts

      Hey man i like to see you covered all the main areas but your most deffinatly wrong about the Allighnments theres a big one due in december some time it only happens every 24.000 years and Prier to Elenin comet which caused the Japan earthquake , christ church and chili earthqakes were all due to allighments with the comet… This once in december is going to be far great than that who knows what will happen … and ive also seen the magnetic field charts the chance of a pole shift is basically increasing by the day :shock:

    • nona

      Your article is full of disinformation and references no facts or links. Too much evidence proving otherwise. I’ve done a tremendous amount of research on this and since I’m not the author of any article, I can only suggest that anyone who reads this, or anything else for that matter, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH! I’m surprised you would print this barracuda.

      He lost me when he blamed global warming on the droughts. Global warming is a HOAX…

    • Plus123

      You appear to be the man behind the curtain, and you just keep repeating “there’s nothing to see here.”
      I’d believe you as much as I’d believe the other wizards AKA government and media.

      Facts my arse, NASA man:

      “Solar outbursts (flares and CMEs) can damage orbiting satellites but will not hurt us on the surface. ”

      So, it seems that he hasn’t heard of the Carrington Event – it occurred during a solar minimum and knocked out telegraph systems. More recent events have affected power grids, and NASA themselves have warned that the entire U.S. grid could go down for months, with millions of potential deaths. Every day solar flares can affect railway lines and pipelines near the Arctic.

      If he means can’t harm us biologically he should be more clear, like a real scientist should.

    • Authentica

      This article is nothing but a personal (misinformed ignorant) opinion dressed up like it’s fact. This is total BS who ever wrote this has no clue what they’re talking about. There is a tonne of scientific evidence for magnetic pole reversal on Earth & the Sun at least. Do a simple google search to find even Nasa saying it’s definitely happened. NOBODY knows how long it takes or what effects it has but it is a fact it’s happened many times. This whole article is bogus. I agree with another commenter that if he’s blaming the weather on ‘global warming’ he’s either not too bright or a disinfo agent. There is plenty of science about Earth’s cyclic changes in temperature & many other things that have nothing to do with Man. Many planets in this solar system have been proven to have had recent changes in weather & temperatures – not just Earth.

    • Dun Foaming

      I have to be honest Barracuda, you are very often on the money, but you are way off the mark on this one, in so many ways!! Beginning to wonder if someone has hacked your account as this is so out of character

    • Quantum Kev

      Wow – this does DEFINITELY not sound like something Barracuda would post. I am thinking either someone hacked his account,’they’ got to him and told him to stop posting the stuff he normally does, or his wife said “You’re scaring the $*&# out of the kids! Post something reassuring…”

      • Dawn

        Oh please, you obviously haven’t read many of barracuda’s posts…they’re a blend of lies, truth and fear mongering. I’ve always wondered if he/she/them were a disinfo agent(s).

    • Pateriot

      Be patient. Dec 21, 2012 is less than 4 months away. Then we will see who is full of crap, the person who wrote this article or those who object to it. Let’s all rejoin and have this discussion on the 22nd of December. If the apocalypse has taken place on the previous day I will apologize for being wrong… and if it does not you will make excuses and change the date, or create another conspiracy theory, or say that it did happen but that it was all metaphorical, or that it happened and the government has covered it all up, or…

      MR David Morrison, you seem to be a man of `FACTS` can you give us some facts about why all the planets in our solar system are heating up, why the global weather is unpredictable, and why we are getting sun when we should be getting rain/snow and why we are getting cold weather when it should be warm, why we are having earthquakes where we never had before, why all sleeping volcanoes are now beginning to wake up, and why so many sinkholes and landslides and falling bridges and floods and tsunamis. You think global food shortage, great depression, financial collapse and world wars are NOTHING `your famous` 12 years child should be worried about, and nobody should be worried about deadly vaccine and Government created new deadly virus and diseases, and the thousands of nuclear bombs, and “`bioBiogerm – Weaponized Germs -“`There are about 6 or more cycles all ending in 2012, we have a 3,600,`Nibiru cycle` and a 5,125, –`Age cycle` and a 26000,–and a `Galactic Alignment` to name a few. We have nothing to worry about in 2012 don`t worry about the FEMA CAMPS the guillotines are all new, and we have billions of painless bullet you will never know when it hit you, in the main time pay your taxes, watch tv and enjoy the ride, and be glad you are alive to witness all this, its a beautiful day.
