Ancient Myths & Wormwood

Ancient Myths & Wormwood

Learn about shamanism and shamans.

Author: Ernie Fitzpatrick
A myth is a sacred story usually concerning the origins of the world or how the world and the creatures in it came to be their present form. Myths are the glue that holds all societies together. There's an element of truth embedded. So how much TRUTH (if any) is there in the ancient myths from Sumeria, Egypt, and Maya cultures about a visiting planet from afar?

This visiting planet has been given so many names. The Sumerians called the planet Nibiru which means "Planet of the crossing". Later cultures, including ours simply call what we "think" is out there, Planet X. Many believe that the book of Revelation (chapter 8) speaks of this same brown dwarf but gives it the name of Wormwood which means "bitter".

Ancient cultures estimated that this brown dwarf would visit our neighborhood approximately every 3,600 years and that the descriptions of the plagues of Egypt speaks of it's last visit to our solar system around 1,500 BCE.

The most current thinking, of those who think therre is actually something tangible to think about, estimate a visit anytime from 2009 to 2012 (naturally 2012!). The brown dwarf isn't just going to suddenly show up on December 21, 2012. If there is such a planet, we will SEE it COMING and it will create havoc for 2-3 years as it's makes its pass through our solar system tracking along the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

So, we will be able to affirm or debunk this theory sometime next year or there abouts. Or we may be able to confirm it.

Many say the confirmations began in 1982 when NASA announced a mystery object and then went silent about it. If it is getting close then there would be great effects on our solar system. Are the massive earthquakes, tsunamis, CAT 5 storms, and other anomalies an indication that our earth is feeling something ominous? Is the fact that we've had more than ONE MILLION people killed though natural disasters in the last seven years an indication that soemthing is up?

And what about global warming? Is it really solar warming? :-)

Ancient cultures have know things long since forgotten. The bitter truth is that we just might be on the cusp of being reminded again of things they once knew.
