Well, I guess that clears that up. I just want to believe that some super advanced race of space gods has better shit to do than fuck with me and my neighbors for eternity.

For those who might be interested:
Actually, Niburu in ancient Babylonian and Sumerian mythos was a PLACE in the stars, not a planet, and it was significant, sort of like a solstice, for when certain stars passed through it. Ancient Sumerian and Babylonian mythology is really fascinating; they knew an insane amount about the stars, which is amazing in and of itself considering the amount of time it would take to make the kinds of observations they did.
This whole Niburu/Planet X/Aliens thing originates with Zecharia Sitchin, a pseudoscientist/author of insane books who claims his translations of ancient Sumerian are more accurate than the orthodox translations. As I'm sure you've guessed, they aren't, and have been thoroughly debunked for at least 20 years or so since the emergence of a more standardized, official lexicon of Sumerian.
Stanley, can you link me to some debunking of Sitchin?
I'd like to read it.

Wasn't Nibiru their name for Sirius?
Also, wouldn't the sun not have the gravitational means to contain a planet with that long of an ellipsis?
Well, if you just want some basics, sitchiniswrong.com is good beginner point. Moving on from that, read actual scholarly works about ancient Sumerican culture. Across the board, despite some disagreements about a lot of things (which happens in virtually any archaeological field) nothing even approaching Sitchin's literal interpretation is accepted as viable anywhere but in the pseudoscience community. There is some debate over whether or not Niburu is the actual name of a planet, but no real scholars think it is a Planet X or anything like that. Nothing in the texts suggests this.
There are some astronomers who DO think at one point there may have been another moon or planet in the solar system because of A) the asteroid belt around the sun and B)the extreme devastation on the surface of Mars which MIGHT be accounted for by a planet exploding somewhere near its orbit, but this is all theoretical playing around since there is no known natural reason that a planet would just explode.
Now, obviously, I myself cannot read Sumerian and am not a scholar, but I am willing to take the word of the majority of the scientific community versus Sitchin (who has no formal training or degrees or schooling) as more authoritative.

Synchronicity, reading some David Icke as this came up.
There's never any actual motivation for Reptilians in Icke/Sitchin's theories. They commit evil for the lulz. Basically, that lot WANTS the all-encompassing top-down evil of Christian demonology, but they ALSO want fluffy cloud crystal-waving New Age non-committal spirituality, and there's where Reptilians come in.
One commentator said to insert "Jews" whenever Icke says "Reptilians", but a better fit is "demons". They're just demons in his cosmology. He throws in some Dungeons and Dragons/space opera gobbledygook and calls it sufficient for his purposes.

Aren't they teaching this stuff in schools now?

At least they aren't going to associate these aliens with the Bohemian Grove with the Illuminati and New-no wait, never mind.
Why do reptoid aliens sound like Stephen Hawking? Are they making fun of him or something?

There's a Babylonian phrase for what should be done with the frothing morons who came up with this tripe:
awīlum šu iddâk (pronounced aWEElum shoo idDAHK)
It means "the citizen (aforementioned one) he will be put to death," and it's found at the end of many of Hammu-rapi's laws.
Fucking conspiracy theorists.

So this is what Garfield has been doing in the last couple years.
