: I am writting an article for a local Columbus, OH paper and am in need of your help. The article is about prophecies of the end of the world. My question concerns one theory that seems to be very popular and that involves a planet called "HErcolubus" (apparently that's what is called by groups called Gnostics. They claim the scientists call this planet Barnard I), whose orbit supposedly gets really close to the earth periodically, causing great disasters in our earth...
: After investigating, it turns out there IS a star called Barnard, and it seems that the existance of the planet Barnard I is not certain. I didn't find any scientific sites that talk about it getting close to earth.
: So, have any of you heard anything about any of this???
: Any help would be appreciated.
: Thanks in advance!!!
: Juan Miranda
:::::::::::::: You can seed any search engine on the net with "Barnard's Star" and gett all the scientific data known to date on it.
If you're looking for data on Hercolubus, you don't need a scientist, you an expert in Gnostic religion.
Try searching the net with either of these words and see what you come up with.
The internet is a great source for info on just about anything. All you have to do is go looking. Not that everything you find will have integrity or even be accurate, but you get to sort that out for yourself.
