BREAKING:::: FOX NEWS ::Planet Nibiru, Comet Elenin Await Earth's End
Renowned astrophysicist Carl Sagan once described a "baloney detection kit" — a set of tools that skeptical thinkers use to investigate any new concept. A few of the key tools include a healthy distrust of information that isn't independently verified, critically assessing an idea rather than becoming irrationally attached to it simply because it's intriguing, and a preference for simple explanations over wildly speculative ones.

The waxing obsession with the planet Nibiru , which conspiracy theorists say is a planet swinging in from the outskirts of our solar system that is going to crash into Earth and wipe out humanity in 2012 — or, in some opinions, 2011 — shows that an astonishing number of people "are watching YouTube videos and visiting slick websites with nothing in their skeptical toolkit," in the words of David Morrison, a planetary astronomer at NASA Ames Research Center and senior scientist at the NASA Astrobiology Institute.

Morrison estimates that there are 2 million websites discussing the impending Nibiru-Earth collision. He receives, on average, five email inquiries about Nibiru every day.

"At least a once a week I get a message from a young person — as young as 11 — who says they are ill and/or contemplating suicide because of the coming doomsday," Morrison told Life's Little Mysteries, a sister site to SPACE.com.

What's the origin of this mass panic about Nibiru, which astronomers say doesn't exist?

Anything that fills air time, since they can't talk about the Murdoch's woes with any real integrity...
"People ask me to predict the future, when all I want to do is prevent it. Better yet, build it. Predicting the future is much too easy, anyway. You look at the people around you, the street you stand on, the visible air you breathe, and predict more of the same. To hell with more. I want better." ~ Ray Bradbury

What I don't get is why people are "feeling ill or contemplating suicide" over this so called nibiru conspiracy. If its going to wipe us out why commit suicide when your going to die in a few months anyway and why would you worry about it so much where it makes you ill. It makes no sense to me. We are all gonna die sometime so stop worrying about it.

Nicely done fox, ousting all the doomtards for the world to see. We were HAPPY plotting then end before everyone knew about it. We were HAPPY knowing that it was our little secret.

Now I feel like a hipster for the end of the world.

"I was a fan of Nibiru before you could even see it!"

Bah.
