Another Expert Agrees With Dark Comet Theory

February 21, 2013 – 11:31 am | No Comment

Astronomer David Asher (from Armagh University) has agreed with Bill Napier and Janaki Wickramasinghe (Cardiff University) that “dark comets” are real and dangerous.
The following quotes are from a paper by Napier and Asher published in Astronomy & Geophysics.
http://star.arm.ac.uk/preprints/2009/539.pdf

We know that about one bright comet (of absolute magnitude as bright as 7, comparable to Halley’s Comet) arrives in the visibility zone (perihelion q<5AU, say) each year from the Oort cloud. It seems to be securely established that ~1–2% of these are captured into Halleytype (HT) orbits. The dynamical lifetime of a body in such an orbit can be estimated, from which the expected number of HT comets is perhaps ~3000. The actual number of active HT comets is ~25. This discrepancy of at least two powers of 10 in the expected impact rate from comets as deduced from this theoretical argument on the one hand, and observations on the other, is …

Biblical scholar: Rapture on May 21, 2011

Submitted by on January 26, 2010 – 2:03 am29 Comments

Interestingly, whereas the Bible Code book is all about encoded information in the Bible predicting events, this prophecy for the date of rapture holds no clues from the Bible except the (supposed) date of Christ’s death, and Harold Camping’s personal interpretation of certain words. Here is how he solved the puzzle:

By Camping’s understanding, the Bible was dictated by God and every word and number carries a spiritual significance. He noticed that particular numbers appeared in the Bible at the same time particular themes are discussed.

The number 5, Camping concluded, equals “atonement.” Ten is “completeness.” Seventeen means “heaven.” Camping patiently explained how he reached his conclusion for May 21, 2011.

“Christ hung on the cross April 1, 33 A.D.,” he began. “Now go to April 1 of 2011 A.D., and that’s 1,978 years.”

Camping then multiplied 1,978 by 365.2422 days – the number of days in each solar year, not to be confused with a calendar year.

Next, Camping noted that April 1 to May 21 encompasses 51 days. Add 51 to the sum of previous multiplication total, and it equals 722,500.

Camping realized that (5 x 10 x 17) x (5 x 10 x 17) = 722,500.

Or put into words: (Atonement x Completeness x Heaven), squared.

“Five times 10 times 17 is telling you a story,” Camping said. “It’s the story from the time Christ made payment for your sins until you’re completely saved.

Convoluted, but I can see why it would be compelling to some Christians. Like many modern-day prophets, this isn’t his first prediction. His previous prediction for Christ’s return (Sept. 6, 1994) was wrong because he made some mathematical errors

    As far as i am concerned that guy Camping is a Nut!! he is not worth quoteing. He is the last one anybody should be getting information from. do some research!
    Bible Scholar..what a joke!

  • Alexis says:

    sorry friend but The Bible said that only God knows the date and time of his return.

  • GuyverXT9 says:

    LoL… Funny stuff.

    We have published a new article on Family Radio and Mr. Harold Camping on our Website – http://www.writeonnewjersey.com. The direct link to the article is http://www.writeonnewjersey.com/2010/02/countdown-to-judgment-2/. Please "spread the word" to interested parties.

  • darrell says:

    The Bible is absolutely clear that Christ's coming will be like the days of Noah.

    Lu 17:26* And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27* They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

    Did God tell Noah the date of the flood before it came? Yes! First, God gave Noah 120 years to build the ark (Gen 6:3) . Second, God told Noah to enter the ark 7 days before the flood (Gen 7:4). This 7 day period is identified with the 7000 years from 4990 BC (the date of the flood) to 2011 AD (see II Peter 3 concerning 1 day =1000 years principle). Additionally, in Genesis 7:24, we read that Noah's flood destroyed the world over a period of 150 days. Likewise, God will destroy the world over a period of 5 months (Revelation 9:5).

    Camping been on the radio a very long time next thing i know he is on cable tv i wouldn’t sell this guy short for i feel he has God in his corner and like it says in the Bible many will run to Jesus in end times and he will say i don’t know you so before you knock this guy you better check why he been around so long way the world is going today i think he is right

  • Lina says:

    When God told Noah to build the arc. HE did not tell him how long it was going to take before He sent the rains-

  • Lina says:

    God in no wise told Noah at the beginning how long his ordeal would be. Plus -there IS no rapture, folks; that was a doctrine hatched by the Catholic churc during the middle of the 19th century.

  • Light says:

    Are you kidding me?!? He indeed gave Noah the exact day when HE was going to bring the flood.
    You should be more careful of what you say about the one and only MIGHTY ETERNAL EVERLASTING CREATOR JESUS CHRIST GOD ALMIGHTY.

  • Light says:

    Great post! very glad to see another watchmen on here. :)

    8 months and a couple of weeks left before that great and dreadful day of the rapture and the wraith of GOD upon this world.

    TODAY IS STILL THE DAY OF SALVATION PEOPLE!!!! ON MAY 21 2011 THE DAY OF SALVATION WILL BE OVER! AND THEN YOU WILL WISH YOU HAD TAKEN THIS WARNING SERIOUSLY BUT IT WILL BE TO LATE!!

  • Fred says:

    1 Thessalonians Chapter 5:4
    But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

  • Let there be NO mistake: There will be NO rapture on May 21, 2011 and no end of the world in October 2011…or December 2012. Pastor Camping and his followers are completely and utterly deceived and their erroneous projection is a product of the MYTH of Modern Dispensationalism, which was started by John Nelson Darby in the mid 1800’s. (Google this!) There is NO such thing as the rapture of the church in modern times. ALL of the references used by proponents of this event apply to the pre-70AD church. Christ ALREADY returned in 70 AD…just like He said He would in Matthew 24. READ YOUR BIBLES, people! We are empowered to do ALL things by the Holy Spirit. Right??? Why does He need to come yet again? Was His (completed) work on the cross 2000 years ago not enough? Are YOU going to be the one to tell Him that???

  • Fred says:

    Churches never mention these verses that state the believers will know more than the unbeliervers like when christ will return, ask your minister what these verses mean! I am sure that he will not have an answer.

    1 Thessalonians 5:
    4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
    5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
    6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

  • Fred says:

    Daniel 12:
    8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
    9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
    10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

  • Fred says:

    Look around you, the whole world is in the toilet. Our time is different from all other times.
    Daniel 12:
    8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
    9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
    10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

  • Rev Fred says:

    These people are trying to save you from the fate ofthe unsaved:

    Jeremiah 25:33
    And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.

  • Rev Fred says:

    Remember Camping is not selling anything on the radio to make money. Family radio was always free to the listerners.
    What has he to gain by sticking his neck out like this???
    If the end comes, he is off and if the end does not come he is off. He is doing this because he truly believes God is using him for this message. What does he have to gain? I don;t have the kind of courage he has. Just think what he is putting out there.
    I remember the professors in Seminary telling us that the Genelogies in the Bible are only important to trace the line of the prophets. They discounted the actually life spans. Think of it, It would take an engineer to learn the significance of the numbers so God could give us a warning of the actually end.
    Whether he is right of wrong we will know it in less than 4 months.
    But, you have to ask yourself, look at the state of the world. That is more scary than judgment day. What the heck is going to happen to us if May 21, 2011 does not happen.

  • raymond says:

    It seems odd to me that so many preachers,evangelists and ministers constantly remind us to be ready because the time is near, yet when someone lets us know how close it really is, he is ridiculed by them. I believe the naysayers want to keep us in fear forever, so that their coffers will be filled to the brim with donations from the weak minded followers. They really believe in Heaven on earth and their blessings are purely material. One must remember that God gave us free will and He has a direct line. We don’t need these phony hypocrites to get healing and blessings. Go directly to Him through the Bible. Remember the Ark was closed suddenly.

  • Rebecca says:

    “Christ returned in 70AD”..? Don’t remember reading that!? However,…Camping did mention this would be the year 7000….according to the Jews. He is right about that…according to the Jewish calendar….this is the year 7000 ! Don’t hedge your bets people….be on the lookout for anything to happen….the world is in turmoil!

  • Robert says:

    Camping is completely wrong in his timeline, the flood did not occur in 4990 bc, it occured about 2300 bc. The extra biblical book, Book of Jubilees, gives the correct timeline, it was not included in the Bible because early church fathers did not agree with its content. It goes into greater depth about what was going on in the early part of Genesis 6, about the sons of God (angels) coming down and marrying the daughters of man (women). That’s something else Camping doesn’t agree happened. So it was left out of the Bible. Go online and you can read the exact timeline, so his theory is invalid right there.

  • Sal Daniele says:

    Where does it say in the Bible, that Noah was warning the people to repent, and that they had 7 days to get into the ark? Have you ever read, Matthew 24:39? In my Bible it says, God told Noah, He was going to destroy man, and that He was sorry He ever made him. Why did God tell Noah to build the ark? it was for Noah and his family.(Heb11:7) Noah believed God, and his very actions, condemned the world. When God told Noah, 7 days, that was for Noahs benefit, just as Jesus told His Apostels about things that would happen in the future. These men were devinley inspired, i dont know if you can understand these things. You have Satanicly inspired people, like Harold Camping, who compare the flood, with Nineveh, Jesus did not say, the end of the world would be just like in the days of Jonah. In 2Peter2:4-6 what is wedged in between the angels that were cast down, and Sodom and gomorrha being destroyed? in those 3 verses, are we being taught, that God is giving a chance? It says He did not spare, look up the word spare. This is how the unsaved world will be right up until the end, not knowing anything. Only Gods people will be ready and waiting, like Noah was, because God tells all His people,when He saves them, He is comming in 7 days. I am going to try to let you figure that one out on your own.

  • Jim Law says:

    …He will come like a thief in the night… No man knows the day and time… the “Rapture” is not in the Bible, it was written by a priest in the 6th century AD; 600 years after Jesus was crucified… Something wicked this way comes… dont be fooled.

  • Rebecca says:

    There is indeed a Rapture! Also, a secret rapture for the individual….not known to all. (Catholic church or not…there is Truth here.) Don’t know about Camping and his prediction….but he is right about this being year 7000 for the Jewish calendar. We shall see what develops…the world is in a desperate state!

  • chris says:

    It also said that he would give us signs of the end. Look whats happening now. 154 tornadoes touched down 2 weeks ago. Nuclear disasters and 2 earthquakes right next to each other. Tsunamis going towards hawaii. This has all happened in 2 months. Since when do 154 tornados touch down in one night and still continue the next day. We had a count of 300 somethin tornados.

  • chris says:

    The funny thing is that I read on many comments on other websites that alot of people have been feeling death around the corner as if they were soon going to die. Same as me and my family. My uncle has been dead for 6 years and came into a dream once. He told me that im going to him soon. I figured it was just a dream till I went to a medium and he told her that I will be gone from this world soon. He said that everyone in my family will be gone from this world soon. Its weird. It makes you think mabey god changed his mind and decided to tell people.

  • Ben says:

    You’re all nuts. There is no invisible bearded man in the sky that cares about you. The world will not end on May 21, 2011. All the same though, if that’s the case, I’ll take all of your stuff right now, because you won’t need it after that right? Who wants to send me all of their money? Anyone? I’ll set up a PayPal account.

  • Dennis says:

    I am more concerned about being READY for His return not when He will return.But once the trib starts( passover I think) we will know the day won’t we? 3 1/2 years later Trumpets through Tabernacles.This unfortunate fellow may be a little confused in his reasoning.First we will need a anti christ,false prophet,two witnesses,global martyrdom,mark of the beast at least one more war, oh yea and maybe a few trees burned as well as 80 pound hailstones,king of the south,seas destroyed,dead fish,scorching by the sun,poison water.The rapture as some people call it happens at the return of Christ which happens AFTER all these thing.Christ will return and those who are his will meet him in the air but also those who have died as well.But Christ then Lands on the mount of olives and zion later.It will happen but not yet

  • Ray says:

    Will the rapture, or calling out, of the 144,000 elect of God happen on October 19, 2011?

    Haggai 2:1 – in the seventh month, on the twenty-first day of the month, the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet,
    Haggai 2:7 – and I will shake all nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with splendor, says the LORD of hosts.

    The “treasure of all nations” is rendered in the Septuagint (LXX) as the elect of all nations. Does this refer to the 144,000 elect? The 21st day of the 7th month (Tishrei) on the Hebrew civil calendar in 5772 is October 19, 2011. The seventh day of the Jewish holiday of SUKKOT, 21st day of TISHRI, is known as Hoshana Rabbah (Great Hoshana). Hoshana Rabbah is known as the day of the final sealing of judgment, which began on ROSH HASHANAH. During the festival of
    SUKKOT the world is judged for water. The seventh day of the festival is the final sealing and since human life depends on water, Hoshana Rabbah is somewhat similar to YOM KIPPUR. “Hoshana” is a Hebrew word meaning “please save” or “save now”. Overall, it seems that, “Hosanna,” is a cry for salvation, while at the same time is a declaration of praise. Tishrei 21 is the last day of Sukkot. (Feast of Booths or Feast of Tabernacles) Sukkot was agricultural in origin.
    This is evident from the biblical name “The Feast of Ingathering,” from the ceremonies accompanying it, from the season – “The festival of the seventh month” – and occasion of its celebration: “At the end of the year when you gather in your labors out of the field” (Ex. 23:16); “after you have gathered in from your threshing-floor and from your winepress” (Deut. 16:13). It was a thanksgiving for the fruit harvest. Coming as it did at the completion of the harvest,
    Sukkot was regarded as a general thanksgiving for the bounty of nature in the year that had just passed. Sukkot became one of the most important feasts in Judaism, as indicated by its designation as “the Feast of the Lord” or simply “the Feast”. Perhaps because of its extensive attendance, Sukkot became the appropriate time for important state ceremonies. Moses instructed the children of Israel to gather for a reading of the Law during Sukkot every seventh year
    (Deut. 31:10-11). King Solomon dedicated the Temple in Jerusalem on Sukkot (1 Kings 8; 2 Chron. 7). And Sukkot was the first sacred occasion observed after the resumption of sacrifices in Jerusalem following the Babylonian captivity (Ezra 3:2-4). Therefore, Tishrei 21 is completion of completion…the last of the last…777…(5772 = 5+2,7,7 = 777 and 7+7+7 = 21) Will this date be the rapture, or calling out, of the 144,000 elect of God from the ends of the Earth
    including Babylon, America? It might also be relevent to mention that comet ELEnin (nin[e]ELE[ven] – Extinction Level Event) will be closest to the Earth on that day!

  • Dennis says:

    I believe the sealing of the 144,000 happens after 2 1/2 years of the tribulation.Before the “day of the LORD” a one year period of Gods judgement on the wicked nations of the earth.Before the seventh but after the sixth seal.This is NO scriptural basis for the 144,000 being raptured just “sealed”.It defineately happens after the tribulation starts.Where is the word “rapture”used in the bible anyway??Besides I see them on Zion with Christ when Christ sets up His Kingdom.Even a superficial student of the bible can see that.The feast(trumpets) though will be be time they are “sealed”because the day of the lord is one year and Christ will return on Trumpets-Tabernacles.
