Long time ago there was another planet in our solar system between Mars and Jupiter. The name of that planet was Phaeton or Mallona, Mallona means broken planet. Mallona was destroyed in a nuclear war, only the four moons of Mallona survived. You will know everything about Mallona (and more) if you read the books of Jakob Lorber (1800 - 1864) and Leopold Engel (1858 - 1931).

What really annoys me is when so called experts talk about developments in our solar system happening Billions of years ago. Do they not realise how ludicrous they sound with such a statement. There is no accurate method by which any thing can be measured by such a vast amount of time. They speak of Hypotheses, as they do of Darwen's THEORY of evolution, as if it is fact! Our children have been fed these lies now for decades and society rolls over and lets them get on with their misleading information.

EARTH IS NOT THE ONLY PLANET THAT CAN CONTAIN LIFE! There are plenty of planets in the universe that have 100% the same conditions as earth! National Geography didn’t even bother fact checking this!

As inhospitable as these planets are there has to be a reason why they are there. Why is the moon there? It regulates Earth's climate and oceanic tides by moderating its axis. Why is the Sun there? It provides Earth with life giving heat and light so that photosynthesis can occur. So why are Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Nibiru there? There's way too much systematic order in our galaxy and everything in it for all of this to be the end result of a freak collision. 🤔 Just my theory.

The 46K dislikes are everyone who learned in the 3rd grade that Pluto is indeed a planet. Or was he a philosopher? Or was that Plato? Or Ploto? Or Pleto? Now you're all lost. You're welcome.
