Nancy Lieder

ZetaTalk is a website that was started in 1995 by self-proclaimed contactee Nancy Lieder, who claims to channel messages from extra-terrestrials who refer to themselves as the Zetas (from the Zeta Reticuli star system; see Betty and Barney Hill) through an implant in her brain. Lieder states that she was chosen to warn mankind about Planet X, which would sweep through the solar system in May 2003, causing a pole shift that would destroy most of humanity. The pole shift would apparently be caused by magnetic attraction between the earth's core and the magnetism of the passing planet. This magnetic disruption of the Earth's core and subsequent displacement of the crust of the Earth is said to correspond with the event Christians refer to as the biblical Armageddon.

This doomsday theory fuses elements from the various "Planet X" hypotheses that have emerged within the last century with the "Earth Chronicles" mythology of Zecharia Sitchin's The 12th Planet, in which, according to Sitchin's reading of Sumerian religious texts, a giant planet (Nibiru) with a 3600-year orbit occasionally passes by Earth and allows its sentient inhabitants to interact with humanity. Sitchin disagrees with Lieder's claim of impending global catastrophe.

Lieder's Planet X received wider recognition when Mark Hazlewood, a former member of the ZetaTalk community, took her claims and published them in a book: Blindsided: Planet X Passes in 2003. Lieder would later accuse him of being a confidence trickster [1].

Lieder predicted that before the pole shift in May 2003 the Iraq War would end with troops being sent home to join loved ones before the shift occurred. When the May 15 date arrived, there was no pole shift, though an end to the war had indeed been declared.

Hence, the McNeil-Lehrer NewsHour began a count of military deaths which occurred "after the war ended in May 2003".

ZetaTalk continues to exist, claiming that the May 2003 date was merely a "white lie" to confuse the elites. Lieder still insists that Planet X is coming, but refuses to give a date until a disclosure has been given to the public by the government. Lieder claims that disclosing a date would enable those in power to plan Martial Law and attempt to trap people in cities during the shift which would cause their deaths.

Lieder has predicted catastrophic earth changes which will increase exponentially until the passage of Planet X, and has urged people to "be prepared".

Hazlewood also still maintains that Planet X is due, and published a new book, Delicate Earth, in 2006. [2] The theory is still very prevalent on the internet, and many sites still claim that "Planet X" is on its way to destroy Earth. The date most often cited is 2012, which is the end of the current cycle (baktun) in the long count in the Mayan calendar.
