Exposing PseudoAstronomy

Ebook or Book on Planet X?

I’ve written a lot on Planet X over the last five years. And I’ve spoken a lot about it on my podcast, having just done Part 7of the “Fake” story of it. I think at this point if I were to do a cohesive tome of any one pseudoscience topic, this would be it. Think it’s worth trying to put something together during my free time?

  1. Absolutely Stuart.. Go for it.. You have so much material to debunk, it’s almost limitless. As a side line (but connected in some YT ‘research’ ahem) is the two suns crap too; quite a few of the tin foil hat wearers have posted the burnt out sensor image and together with the lens imperfections have called the flair their second sun. I know you know that, but it could be a good second part to the initial tome.
    “Nibiru fantasies and the coming of the second sun that never was”?

  3. My grandfather might have said, “Beats standing around stargazing,” but you and I know better.
    Go for it anyway!

  4. It is worth it if only for easy referencing for future skeptics. Think of the children. If you have the time then I would encourage it.

  5. I confess that my first thought matched that of Robert (above). “You HAVE free time?!”

    I also agree with you. The PlanetX/Nibiru/Wormwood/Destroyer/Hercobulus topic(s) are very popular and, therefore, very fertile ground to plow. (Plus, of course, anything from Uncle ‘Billy’ Meier.) But then I enjoy ‘most everything you do.

  6. Also maybe something with a series of essays in a format like the podcast… of course that would mean a large amount of Hoagland. I enjoy listening to him most of the time cuz crazy is entertaining, but when he makes claims like the Space Shuttle being named “Enterprise” was his idea and such it can get irritating. I once heard a podcast where he was debating a moon hoax theorist. That was too much nutty in one package.

  7. Please do at least an ebook, compiling the “history” behind the so-called second sun and its sometime planet companion. If you can find the time, please put it together and get it out, available for people to buy & read.

  9. Can I bring your attention to a two hour (I think it’s split into two one our videos) on YT that do quite a comprehensive debunk of the Nibiru thing? The guy goes into quite a thorough scientific but interesting and easy to follow debunk.. I found it before I found out about you Stuart, but it’s worth a look I think (You may even contradict some of what the guy says).

    • Oh, SpaceKills2’s videos. Thanks!

      • You’re welome. It still doesn’t prevent the too stupid to live from believing in two suns though, as you’ll see in some of the comments.

  11. I would buy it instantly for any price <= $10.00, more than that and I have to check my book budget, but I would eventually break down and buy it anyway. [sigh]

    An additional advantage is that you could flog the book on various radio shows and podcasts. Maybe even get an NPR appearance out of it?

    PS Having links to external references on the books website would help when citing it as a source.

  12. I hope you get the chance to write the book as I’d love to have a copy.

  13. Sure. If you wrote an ebook on this subject I’d buy it. I don’t buy dead tree books anymore unless there’s a very compelling reason (there rarely is).

  14. I don’t buy ebooks. Ever. Fuck em. If you kill some trees and give me something to put on my bookshelf and easily reference later when someone is spouting some bullshit, I will buy it day one. Day one. Plus, it’ll be something to sell at TAM to raise some money for the trip there and back.

    I don’t know how easy it is to make a book on a print on demand site, but do it. Youtube’s dumb. Ebooks are dumb.

    I’m pretty opinionated on books.

    PS. Author of an eBook, The True Story of Planet X, Dr. Stuart Robbins vs. author of the book The True Story of Planet X, Dr. Stuart Robbins. Say those in your head a few times. Clearly, you want to author the book. Anyone can do an eBook.
