Dark Comets »

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 …

The Last Doomsday

Submitted by on December 22, 2011 – 5:09 pm4 Comments

It’s not a contradiction of terms – plenty of 2012 debunkers will let you know that every other doomsday prophecy was wrong. Well, it only takes one doomsday prophecy to be right – so how do we judge them?

Historically, regardless of how popular they became, doomsday prophecies tended to be based on the ideas of a religiously motivated individual. The most recent was Harold Camping. Aside from Y2K, all the major doomsday predictions that failed were:

  • Based on the Bible
  • Used dodgy logic, usually revolving around numbers or codes
  • Promoted by an individual

And Y2K was real, but we fixed it. And it wasn’t a prophecy, but rather reality.

The Mayan prophecy (and there is an implied prophecy, according to the Popol Vuh each previous “age” ended with the destruction of the human race) is not Biblical, doesn’t feel the need to offer any logic, and was embraced by an entire society. Nothing like anything from the past. And nothing like anything from the future.

Today Alan Boyle at Cosmic Log felt obliged to make a list of  future doomsdays that have been predicted. They are a motley bunch compared to the Long Count calendar:

  • 2014, when the LHC is due to reach full power. Some folks believe the second decade of any century is a rough time, just because it historically has been. Nicholas Boyle, a professor specializing in German literature and history at Cambridge University (and no close relative of mine), has already written a book on that theme titled “2014: How to Survive the Next World Crisis.” Not sure what that has to do with German, but OK. So, not really worthy of mentioning then…
  • 2029, futurist Ray Kurzweil expects machine intelligence will equal human intelligence. Not a doomsday!
  • 2045, Kurzweil foresees a global transformation dramatic enough to be classified as a “singularity.” McKenna predicted the same for 2012.
  • 2060, the “no-earlier-than” date for Isaac Newton’s predicted doomsday. Not many people know this, but Newton spent more time trying to predict the Biblical end of days than anything else.

I had a chuckle at this quote from an expert:

But Rosanna Guadagno, a social psychologist at the University of Alabama, worries that websites and apocalyptic chatter on the Internet could create a “tipping point” for 2012 hysteria. “I think it’s going to ramp up as we get closer to next December,” she told me.

As we say in Australia: No Shit Sherlock!

    just for your information: yesterday, a doc aired in Belgium about 2012 and the “founder” of the Mayan theory Patrick Geryl. Guess what : they proved Geryl to be in it for the money ! He has already convinced some people to give 30k euro for a place in his community, yet the building of this community has not started… His “brother in arms” Louis de Cordier, who had plans to start building a complex of spheres in S-Spain, has now started to buy farms in the neighbourhood and reselling them for huge profits because this area is supposed to be safe for the cataclysm…

    Others who are involved in the 2012-myth has been exposed too…

    In the end, it’s all about fear mongering and a lot of ‘weak’ people are hoping for salvation, giving money to the saviors…

    Just an FYI, Rob … “No shit Sherlock” is not exclusive to Australia and can be heard reverberating around the world at Ms Guadagno’s comment!

    @kirsten: I’m not selling bunkers and I regularly state that a 2012 catastrophe is unlikely. But regardless of anyone trying to profit from it, it’s a damn fine excuse to prepare for the worst, just in case.

    BTW, I’ve known Patrick for a while now, and his enthusiasm for 2012 is genuine – I am sure he is not in it for the money. However, all such projects depend upon enough people fronting up with a deposit, unless the ringleader is loaded…

    @Maya – that’s good to hear, although I can’t imagine any Americans getting to say it without being bleeped out (yet wanker is OK…)

    I am not paying anybody for any bunker…I’ll make my own! The Government is buying up the long-life food for some reason, and I think they know something is about to happen! Whenever I place an order it is out of stock per Government buy out. I’m storing food, water and supplies,…better safe than sorry!! However, if it’s Solar Flares…we’re all cooked! These planets aren’t lining up for no reason.
