Planetary Alignment

  1. Dec 2, 2008 #1
    Ok. Let me start off by saying I don't believe 2012 is the end of everything. :rofl:
    However, I have heard about this "planetary alignment" that is suppose to take place. Apparently, scientists have said that either they don't know what affect this will have on us, or that everyone is just getting hyped up, and that nothing will happen.
    I am unsure and I don't feel like google'ing it, and end up with some half-a** 2012 answer.

    Will this affect any gravitational pull or something like that?
    Please help explain. XD​

    There is no planetary alignment. Nothing will happen.

    There is no planetary alignment in 2012. Some are talking about the sun aligning with the galactic center, which isn't happening either. Do a search for it on this forum, but fyi, the topic is banned and all threads on it get locked. We don't need to be discussing the same crackpottery over and over and over for the next 4 years.
