earthfromspace From deep space, the earth looks blue. It is the oceans that give it the blue color.  But we humans share this blue planet that is also home to plants, insects, bacteria, viruses and animals.  We take our earth for granted because we are not aware of how it works, nor that it has a living electrical pulse and that we need to protect it. Yes, we can stand up any place on earth, top or bottom and not fall off. How is it that the world is rotating so fast and we do not fall off it?

There is a lot of discussion about the earth wobbling and the possibility that such wobbling may be causing earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes and even climate change.  All this may sound crazy and speculative.  But is there any possible truth to all of this?

GyroscopeOne thing all people agree on is that we can stand upright as if on an even plain, while the earth rotates at a speed of 1000 miles per hour or rotating on its axis once every 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4 seconds.  In spite of this super speed, something that is gravity attaches us, the buildings and all else to earth during this speed.  We are not even aware of that we are flying with earth. The earth's rotation is similar to that of a toy top or gyroscope that is spinning.

This may give the impression that the earth is stable, but it is far from it.  The ground under us is forever shifting, stretching and wobbling and changing the surface of the earth. Most of the time, this is nothing to worry about. Such phenomena is helping us to better understand the inner workings of our planet.  Fleming: Earth spin, shakes & wobbles 2016

"The belief that Planet X is approaching Earth is gaining momentum which some say will bring about the end of the world as we know it. Online conspiracy theorists believe that Planet X (or Nibiru as it is also known) is a rogue planet with such intense gravity that it can partly counter the sun’s gravitational pull. The supposed strong gravity is now causing the Earth to wobble on its axis, leading to more powerful storms and earthquakes. Nibiru, it should be noted, has yet to be officially confirmed by recognised space authorities."

Since the year 2000, Earth’s axis has shifted by about seven inches a year – something which Nasa scientists have described as a “massive swing”. While Earth has wobbled on its axis throughout its history, Nibiru believers are convinced that this time it is due to the arrival of the apocalyptic planet. They claim that the likes of Hurricane Irma and Jose, along with several earthquakes around the globe, particularly the massive tremor in Mexico, are indicators that Planet X is nearing. Website Planet X News writes: “Several Earth changes that are now ongoing are indicators of increased Earth wobble which in turn should tell us a pole shift event is imminent."

This is all a scary prophecy.   None of this has not been confirmed by NASA or others.
