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 …

How Accurate Did Mayans Expect Prophecy To Be?

Submitted by on December 21, 2012 – 5:34 pmNo Comment

I find it absolutely extraordinary that out of millions of pages written about 2012, very few have discussed the most logical questions:

  • Why did they choose Dec 21, 2012 as the end date of the Long Count?
  • What was the reason for the start date?
  • What did the Maya believe happened at the end of the last Long Count (hint: humans wiped out)
  • How important was prophecy to the Maya?
  • Did their prophecies ever come true?
  • Was the date provided with prophecies meant to be precise?

It is very easy to map our own ways of thinking onto an ancient culture, and that’s a mistake.

For all we know, a prophetic date might not have been expected (by the ancient Maya) to be accurate. For all we know, give or take a week was acceptable. We simply don’t know.

Regarding today, technically Dec 21 is the start of the new Sun/Age/Era. The end of the last Sun was on Dec 20. Globally the media and most published authors have got this wrong.

The focus has been on 11:12AM London time, the precise moment of the northern winter solstice. We don’t actually know if the Mayans were indicating the solstice, or whether it is just a coincidence.

My gut feeling is that the day they chose, being the shortest day, and therefore the darkest and most ominous, is just symbolic.

For a long time I have stated that 6 months either side of Dec 21 should be considered the danger zone, the period in which the terrible event was actually predicted to occur. They might have done this to save face if they were a few days or months out. Still, after 5000 years that would be incredibly accurate, regardless of which catastrophe they were predicting.

I’m going to be on TV again tomorrow saying how relieved I am that the world (as we know it) didn’t end. But I hope to slip in a warning that we are always in peril to some degree, especially while power grids need upgrading and dark comets remain undetected.
