Planet X. It sounds like something from a science fiction movie. There has been a lot of speculation about whether or not planet X really exists. Many people are obsessed with the theory that it exists and have done some really crazy things ,such as threaten suicide, because they are so disturbed about the planet.

The aliens were said to return to earth to cause havoc in 2012.1 The whole idea of a “doomsday planetary collision” began with a lady named Nancy Lieder. She started talking about planets colliding in 1995 and she believed that had an implant in her brain that gave her the ability to receive messages from aliens. She claimed that she could communicate with aliens and that she was sent to warn humans that there would be a collision that would end life on earth. She predicted that this collision of planets would happen in May of 2003. When the event did not happen in 2003, Lieder and her followers decided it would happen in 2013. This was in line with the end of the Mayan calendar.

I admit that I knew nothing about Planet X before writing this paper. I also admit that I am skeptical that it even exists. I don’t think I will go out and prepare for the big collision and end of the world because of this indormation.4
