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 …

Lunar Eclipse = Quakes?

Submitted by on December 22, 2010 – 3:18 pm10 Comments

The evidence is (perhaps) stacking up. Mitch Battros of Earth Changes Media, as well as many other researchers (even my Facebook status!) suggested that yesterday’s lunar eclipse could cause an earthquake. And it looks like it did:

Japan’s Meteorological Agency said the quake occurred about 130 kilometers (80.6 miles) off the southern coast of Chichi Island in the Pacific Ocean. The offshore quake struck at around 2:20 a.m. (1720 GMT) at the depth of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles).

The U.S. Geological Survey also put the quake’s magnitude at 7.4.

Now, I disagree with most of Mitch’s predictions, primarily because he tends to predict things that are statistically quite likely anyway. And I have problems with his methodology regarding lunar eclipses. He believes that a major earthquake should occur within 2 weeks (before or after) of a lunar eclipse. Take a look at what happened around the time of the 8 other full lunar eclipses since 2000:

26 January 2001 – A magnitude 7.6 earthquake in the Indian Province of Gujarat. The death toll was 19,727, with 166,000 injured. 15 days after the lunar eclipse.
1 May 2003 - 176 people have died and 521 people were injured from a 6.4 earthquake in Turkey’s Bingöl province. 15 days before the lunar eclipse.
17 November 2003 - 7.8 magnitude earthquake at Rat Island, Alaska. 8 days after the lunar eclipse.
4 May 2004 - Lunar eclipse does not cause any earthquakes.
23 October 2004 – 6.7 magnitude earthquake in northern Japan, killing 30+ people and injuring more than 2000. 5 days before the lunar eclipse.
6 March 2007 –  Two earthquakes struck Sumatra measuring 6.4 and 6.3.  Over 60 deaths and 460 injuries. 3 days after the lunar eclipse.
15 August 2007 - 7.4 magnitude earthquake in Peru killed over 600 people, with thousands injured. 13 days before the lunar eclipse.
21 February 2008 – 7.4 magnitude earthquake in Indonesia killed 3 people and injured 25. 19 hours before the lunar eclipse.

Unfortunately for Mitch’s theory, if you look at a list of major earthquakes, you’ll see that on average you get one more frequently than once per month… and 2 weeks before or after equals a month.

That doesn’t mean there’s nothing in the idea. We just need to narrow the time-frame, and accept that earthquakes only occur around some eclipses, and not others. Four of the last five eclipses (including yesterday) may have caused an earthquake within 5 days. And the last two occurred within 24 hours of the eclipse! Even partial eclipses fit the pattern, with five of the last six having an earthquake occur within 5 days. This seems to be a new trend, leading up to 2012.

Don’t be surprised if we have another major earthquake before Xmas (Dec 22 UPDATE – another earthquake in Japan, and a 6.5 quake in Iran, killing 11 people. Don’t be surprised if a bigger one happens before Xmas…) . And steer clear of earthquake-prone lands during these upcoming eclipses:

2011 Jun 15 – Total
2011 Dec 10 – Total
2012 Jun 04 – Partial
2012 Nov 28 – Partial

Additionally, the two earthquakes with the most fatalities in the last 5 years, Haiti on January 12, 2010 and Kashmir on October 8, 2005, both occurred within 5 days of a solar eclipse. The next solar eclipses are:

    The USGS has a tendancy to miss or downgrade earthquakes, imo it helps to have several sources for information. I know of many, so just ask. With that said, YES i have seen the connection with this for many years. I find it odd that thoeries deemed as esoteric yesterday are suddenly being mentioned in the main stream. IMO there is no main stream organization of “thinkers” that can even imagine the power that this planet can display.

  • Rebecca says:

    I’ve seen the connection too….for many years! Eclipses always mean something is going to happen on Earth. We’ve had quite a few in the last decade. A lot of the hidden esoteric teachings/ Truths is being brought out into the open now. Watch Mother Nature do her thing.

  • NM156 says:

    This is yet another force of nature that was recognized by the ancients. Yet at our present level of technological advancements; only now when everything that was said was going to happen, and happening. Are the main stream communities of “thinkers” (snicker), finding it in their hearts to consider taking into account the work of the shunned scientific community. When will the the elite funded think tanks reveal the truth, they already steal the works of the discredited. So why all the secrets? No one backed up a theory from 1979 of the Galactic Superwave, yet we now have discovered a Galactic Bubble. The USGS, NASA, NOAA, or any other shill filled government entity, say there is no such link between moon phases and other lunar “cyclic events”. Hmmm…. IMO these are the same types of minds that bought into the world being flat.

  • Carl says:

    A lot of this is way outside my field of technical expertise, but I do find it incredibly interesting. Saying that I am the type that needs to touch / see to believe things. There seems to be a lot of “proof” happening recently thats for sure!
    In your opinions, where are these regions that are least likely to be affected by earthquakes – Im a mere 80km from the Drakensberg mountains and wondered if that really is going to be the “safe spot”??

  • Rebecca says:

    Hopefully,….any high ground would prove safe? If not….then I’m done for!

  • Steven M. Guttman says:

    I just cannot help but wonder if the removal of petroleum in a relatively short
    period of time (150+/- years) could have had something to do with the increase
    in seismic activity that we are experiencing currently? Also is it possible that
    petroleum actually helped to lubricate the shifting plates?

  • AJ says:

    Eclipses DO NOT CAUSE EARTHQUAKES! I know all you folks like to have fun a say the scientist are shills & do not understand what the ancients did or that they keep secrets but all of that is PURE BS! I think it well past time for many of you to grow up & stop spreading such absurd ideas.

  • Robert Bast says:

    Sorry AJ, but I ran the figures as far back as I could (1973). Major earthquakes are almost twice as likely within five days of a lunar eclipse. Obviously the eclipse isn’t the cause, but rather a force connected with the alignment between Sun/Moon/Earth. And it can’t be gravity as we understand it, so it’s either electro-magnetic, or a force we don’t yet know about.

  • Spellcaster says:

    So Many folks are in denial as to earth changes and coming events.
    The Governments will not admit to any solar or lunar connections to earth events happening now or in days to come. It is my reasoning that the governments will not say anything to the public in order to keep a calm or a “control” if you will over it’s peoples so that a mass panic won’t erupt.I myself do join in with those that harken back to what the ancients foretold. As I see it.. Hold on to your hats folks it’s going to be a rough ride and there is gonna be a whole lotta shakin’ going on!!

    Brightest Blessings to all!

    Dear Robert Bast,
    I had my head patted by a seismologist once, way back in the late nineties.
    In the nicest way possible, I was told to leave the prediction of earthquakes to the experts and to confine myself to a more suitable hobby, like collecting beer mats.
    Even in those days I knew that they would never, ever, be able to predict earthquakes because they were looking in the wrong place anyway and that still applies today.
    When I mentioned that the planets were involved in earthquakes, I was told that their effects upon the earth was next to zero, they being too far away to have any effect.
    They have it drilled into their heads that the study of seismology is a purely terrestrial pursuit and they are not allowed to look elsewhere for their answers.
    Should the seismologist look up, instead of down, they would find their required answers soon enough.
    Apart from the need to get away from Newtonian physics completely, a complete re-think about our solar system is required.
    If the sun is seen as a huge electro-magnet hanging in the sky, then our solar system becomes an electric solar system.
    In an electric solar system, a planet’s gravity can ride ‘piggy-back’ fashion on the electric flux of the electric solar system, which means that planets can help to cause earthquakes.
    The proof being sunspots, where relevant planets (including Pluto) cause sunspots as they come into and out of solar focus.
    Yes, earthquakes can be predicted, even for years in advance, the time, the day and the place, quite accurately and quite scientifically.
    From Bernard.
