Jupiter may be a gas giant, but that is not the same thing as it having no substance to tear apart. Of course it does. Just because it isn't a solid doesn't mean that it's mass is meaningless.
The mass of Jupiter is 1.9 x 1027 kg, or 318 times the mass of Earth. Jupiter is 2.5 times more massive than all of the other planets in our Solar System combined.
From Wikipedia: "Because the mass of Jupiter is so large compared to the other objects in the solar system, the effects of its gravity must be included when calculating satellite trajectories and the precise orbits of other bodies in the solar system, including earth's moon and even pluto."
So that means that all of Jupiter's gas has far-reaching effects - in fact, it effects the orbits of everything else in the entire solar system. Something that is substanceless can't have those kinds of effects.
Suns like ours are also made up of the same hydrogen and helium. Yet it is well known that not only are they responsible for the orbits of everything else their solar system, but we know that suns can be "torn apart". They are known as super-nova. Black holes tear apart and consume suns and any planets accompanying them - including any gas giants like Jupiter.
Gas does not equate to nothingness. So your statement, "there is nothing to 'tear apart'" is completely wrong. If suns can super nova, then gas giants CAN be torn apart. Gravity holds Jupiter together, and gravity can tear it apart. Which is exactly what I'm talking about here - the gravitational mass of a passing dwarf star causing Jupiter to loose it's cohesiveness and be torn apart.
You are implying that gas can't affect other things, but that's like saying the winds (gas) of Hurricane Harvey had no effect on Texas. Mass is mass - whether it is solid, liquid, or gas - and ALL mass affects all other mass.
"The Law of Universal Gravitation
"Since the gravitational force is experienced by all matter in the universe, from the largest galaxies down to the smallest particles, it is often called universal gravitation
Note the use of the word "ALL". And note the "down to the smallest particles" part.
Again, gas has mass and is not substanceless as you are implying.
I do not get my education from YouTube. I am a college graduate with two degrees which I earned with honors. I know how to discern the crap that is out there on YouTube.
You must have missed the part of my post where I said I had spent time debunking people's supposed evidence of Niburu. You must also have missed the part where I say that I'm asking this question out of curiosity only.
It doesn't matter if there really is a Niburu or not as far as my question goes. I am asking a legitimate question: What would happen to Jupiter, our solar system, and earth if Jupiter were torn apart by a near miss by a brown dwarf system?
