Planet X

  1. Jul 21, 2007 #1
    As usual, I dont know if this is the right place, but, I have been thinking, and if samarians ( if thats spelt right ) were right about planet x, then it should be near us soon in a few years or a few decades, now, if this is true, wouldnt that explain that if the ufo sightings are true, that theyre were a outburst of ufos a few decades ago and have been constantly ever since because planet x's inhabitants got within short travel distance of earth at that time? I dont know if that makes sense to you but iono, it would explain it for me. I dont know.

    Well if the above isnt in the right place I have a video that is, please tell me what you think, I think these guys are telling the truth. By the way im 14 so if possible soft treatment please ;]

    No, there really isn't anything to that stuff. The Sumerians didn't "know" or even claim to know what is being said they knew. It was all made up by a crackpot trying to become famous: http://www.sitchiniswrong.com/

    Btw, that link of yours just leads to a tv listing.

    Here's what we have so far for a "10th planet" (reverberating keyboard music please!)

    Here's another candidate:

    Sorry, I only got to the title screen before I had to go vomit. I'll try to watch more later (that's a pretty famous crackpotumentary and I've never watched it before...) Greer is a flying saucer crackpot though, not an ancient knowledge crackpot. The two conspiracy theories have nothing to do with each other.

    We consider potentially unexplained phenomena here, not fringe theories. :smile:

    If there were unexplained discrepancies in the observed orbits of the planets, that would be a qualified discussion here or in the Astronomy forum. But the planet X business is a "theory" in search of evidence - any evidence. That's a dead give-away that it is not worth consideration. Also note that a tenth planet in itself is not the limit of Sitchen's claims, so these are really two different discussions.
