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.

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 …

Open Question: What Could the Mayans Predict?

Submitted by on September 23, 2010 – 3:03 pm12 Comments

[I mean scientific predictions, not prophecy]

Most of the Mayan books were burned by the Spanish conquistadors, and there are bound to be plenty of Mayan monuments that are yet to be discovered. Or the knowledge may have only been transmitted orally. Therefore it is quite possible that the ancient Mayans did indeed specify a disaster for 2012, and we are just unaware of it.

It is also possible (and to my mind most likely) that they inherited the Long Count calendar from an earlier or visiting civilization. Regardless, the question is the same – what type of event could have been predicted in ancient times, for Dec 2012?

I’m not looking for evidence that similar predictions were ever accurately made, just the possibility, because with the Long Count calendar we really are grasping at straws.

My personal preference is the return of an asteroid or comet, or meteor shower, and the accompanying potential for catastrophe. As I have explained, if Halley could predict the return of a comet using basic arithmetic, so could the Mayans. And if a civilization is around for long enough, they can notice long period comets, perhaps one that only returns every 1000 years, something present civilizations are unlikely to have noticed or recorded.

I figure the Sun could also have cycles, if you watched it for long enough. What else could be possible?

  • Volcanoes and Earthquakes? Unlikely given that we currently do not have that ability.
  • War and Disease? Not easy or even possible from over 1000 years ago.
  • Magnetic Pole Shift or Crustal Pole Shift? I doubt ancient cultures knew of these..

If anyone can come up with something, other than the Sun or Asteroids/Comets/Meteors, that was predictable by the ancients for 2012, please let me know!

    It could be the returne of the entities that created the calendar on the first place! nuh!

    Hi Rob,

    Just as an aside to your comment… ‘there are bound to be plenty of Mayan monuments that are yet to be discovered’

    I shocked me to discover whilst visiting Palenque (a site connected with the 2012 subject) that though about 10 – 20 structures have been reclaimed from the jungle there, around us still covered and almost completely unexplored were somewhere between 500 – 1000 ancient structures. This is apparently not atypical of the situation in Mexico and Guatamala where government have so many sites but a lack of funds to explore them.

    Incredible to think what still lays hidden eh?

    IMO the Maya inherited the Long Count Calender from the Olmec. I find it odd the Long Count Calender was created on August 11th 3114 BC. This has too much in common with other accounts of ancient civilizations around the world, ex. the destruction of Soddom and Gamora in 3123 BC, The Yuga system beginning in 3102 BC. 21 years after a possible comet explosion over the Swiss Alps in 3123 BC, hence the destruction of Soddom and Gamora. I suggest that 5,123 years ago a comet broke up and changed the lives of all ancient world civilizations. Evidence has recently been found in Peru, that suggests such a thing happened. Coming out of a Peruvian Glacier there was flash frozen plants found which carbon dated to approx. 5,100 years ago. My only question is was this a direct impact of a comet, or a result of the comets tail debris? If the comet survived a complete impact, then could it return in the near future? IMO it has happened before and will happen again, however that does not mean that 2012 is the year it will happen.

    @Bruce – I was just being playful, at the current rate I doubt they’ll ever finish uncovering them, and there’s bound to even be pyramids still undiscovered.

    hmmm, if anything from space is heading towards and is scheduled to hit us and cause damage (size matters) in 2012 ,by now it should be visible to all the telescopes ! if not then we can safely ignore any outer space threats !

    How about the stopping of the ocean current as a scenario for the end of almost end of civilization? I read info from a Dr. G. Zangari of the Frascati Institute in Italy, and he studied the satellite data of the Atlantic ocean current from NOAA and US Naval satellites this year and found the Atlantic current had stopped flowing in June or July this year at the 47th Parellel, 1/3 way up from Florida, and the ocean temp there dropped 10 degrees Celcius. I remember reading a report from the Norway Ocean… institute (forget exact name), two years or so ago, and they found the current had slowed 50%. Two leading ocean experts, Dr. Mike Coffman and Dr. Tim Ball said that if this total stoppage is true, the earth is in for a quick Ice Age , in as soon as weeks, or a year or two, leading to climate and crop loss to lead to a loss of 70% or more of the world’s population. It could be because of the melting of the polar ice in Greenland and Antartica from the global temperature rising daily, or partially because of the oil spills , and maybey the earth’s core heating up slightly. It is something we should be looking into quickly by scientists to figure out what we can do to get it back flowing again, and/or how to deal with the upcoming possible ice age either worldwide or localized on one continent. I think this has as much or more scientific evidence to back an end of the world cause in 2012 or sooner or later. Thanks Robert for your outstanding Blog, insights and research. Richeese

    “Magnetic Pole Shift or Crustal Pole Shift? I doubt ancient cultures knew of these..”

    Think about it a civilization from long ago with no instruments, satellites, college predict a astral event we did not know about until recently. There is more to this story then just math skills on steroids and great powers of observation………

    Expanding Earth? The Hopi prophecies say the Mother (Earth) is laying a new egg, birth pengs followed by a ” Birth of a New World” the 5th world. Expanding Earth explains anything and more than the theory of plate tectonics can. A 13,000 year cycle that includes a culmination of insurmountable events. Thats how i see it anyway.

    What if this whole 2012 is total garbage and nothing happens. Could 2012 really be an invention to distract us all from something else bigger going on. Yesterday I saw a documentary. There were examples about people who were building bunkers. I was shocked that they are totally changed their lives, and now they spend thousands on building bunkers,constructing greenhouses which they will put in them, and planning all other things before the doomsday. Also, some of them are absolutely confident that government knows everything, and digging underground bunkers about 10 years. Isn’t it look like a movie which were released a year ago. Some people says yes 2012 can be a fake, nothing is gonna happen, but what you will say about changing in climate, and all this events such earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, record breaking heat and other activities. However, this is a nature, and you can’t control it. We’re aware that extreme weather happens, and maybe it is just fluctuation in the nature which should happen. Anyway, nowadays there are hundreds of telecasts, tv programs about 2012 where Mayas calendar is the main thing to talk about, and I find them so funny how government make us fools and puppets in their hands. They divided all population into two groups people who believe in it and those who is not. Be aware of manipulation, listen to yourself.

    Robert can you delete the last comment, cause I send it, and can’t delete now. Thanks

    Mother Nature is shaking us up…..and even affecting man’s emotions!….Earth change is on it’s way! I believe a New World is opening, ushering in a new consciousness of Peace and Harmony, AFTER the chaos ….and there will be chaos of enormous proportions. As for the Government? I am not fooled by the Government….they couldn’t care less for the…..individual human!

    I also read about the Atlantic current….. and if it stops flowing….we definitely are in for a “quick ice age.” I would not doubt if the Poles are trying to change….hopefully, slowly!

    I agree with all the replies posted here. i am going to propose an answer to all of them, Rob a little help would be great as i am sure you know were i am going with this. IMO the evidance being found around the world from ice cores samples to ancient accounts scream of cyclic events. In order to better help those of you who are interested, i will post links to one of the most fascinating and imo beautiful time completion scenarios i have ever known. It is a montage of links that paint a single picture. I have spoken of a culmination of events, time and again. IMO we are seeing these events unfold before our eyes. Here is how it starts. A Galactic Superwave erupts form the galactic core approximately every 13,000 years, our sun has an approximate 12 years cycle, our planet experiances global cooling periods approximately every 13,000 years. There are also lesser cyclic cooling and warming events all are due to cyclic events that occure from the actions of our sun which is also affected by the actions of our galaxy… Yes it is a big picture, however it is the merge for the new age and the old. It is a helix patturn, and i found were the new meets the old. It is in the stars folks it has always been there it always will be it is the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega. Here are some sources. Dr. Paul LaViolette- (also on youtube, a project camelot interveiw), The Galactic Bubble, pick a search engine it’s there, found this year, look here at 2012 Blog. 2004 Earthquake and Tsunami in Indonesia cause by galactic shock wave. NASA caught off guard by Suns activity on 11-26-2010. SOHO (Solar and Heliosphereic Obsearvatory) headquarters went off line on 11-26-2010 on 11-28-2010, the site left a notice saying operations were “relocating” to a differant office, the soho site will be up and running again “with-in 48 hrs”. 3 days later they come back online giving a garbage reason for the delay and begin releasing images with missing dates and data. Dates missing 11-26-2010 to 12-1-2010. Put it this way folks i watched the gif images on the 26th, it was a “HUGE CME”, it was an X class, it wasn’t even pointed towards earth and it effected our planet almost immediately. Cycle 24 promises to be a very odd one. The amount of debris falling into the sun has increased exponentially. NASA now states that an object as big as Jupiter is on the outter edge of our solar system. Too many coincidences have occured to ignore.
