    Planet Nibiru???

    By Natalie Wolchover
    Published July 24, 2011

    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 NASAAmes Research Center and senior scientist at the NASA Astrobiology Institute.

    Heaven's Gate (religious group)

    The logo used by the Heaven's Gate group Heaven's Gate was an American UFO religion based in San Diego, California, founded and led by Marshall Applewhite (19311997) and Bonnie Nettles (19281985).

    On March 26, 1997, police discovered the bodies of 39 members of the group who had committed suicide in order to reach an alien aircraft which they believed was following the Comet Hale-Bopp, which was at its brightest.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
