Nope, the seeming ratio of planets distance from each other doesn't hold up
and has nothing to do with the numbers 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 ect. There is theory
(not very well substantiated) that there was a planet where the asteroid belt
is and Mars was it's moon. the planet was disrupted in some manner and Mars
continued on as a planet instead of a moon. No known force could cause a
planet to blow up but the theory is interesting.
