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 …

2012ers Predict Quake

2012ers Predict Quake

Apr 6, 2010 – 10:42:23 AM – Mitch Battros of Earth Changes Media posts an article with the headline Largest Solar Storm of Cycle 24 – Will Another Quake Follow?
His email to subscribers began by saying:
The most powerful geomagnetic storm since December 2006 struck the Earth on Monday. The solar storm prompted NOAA to issue a Space Weather Advisory on Monday ordering all personnel on the space shuttle and International Space Station to take cover in specially designed compartment shields.
Charged particles come in the form of galactic cosmic rays, gamma rays, solar flares, and CME’s. The Kp Index measures from 1 (mild) to 9 (severe). Monday’s hit measured 7.
For years Mitch has been telling us that the Sun will be the cause of increasing “earth changes” as 2012 approaches.
Meanwhile over at 2012 Forum, also posted on Tuesday April 6, “deanmullen10″ makes the following prediction:
April-May 2010: The next earthquake 7.0 Magnitude …

New Hominid = Mysterious Elders

New Hominid = Mysterious Elders

This is breaking news, and could be important one day. The “hobbits” were similar, but more of a curiosity. This new fossil, nicknamed “Woman X“, might have lived as recently as 30,000 years ago, making her a contemporary of ourselves and the Neanderthals.

Just as Neanderthals could theoretically live amongst us without us realizing they are a different species, so could this new strain. Speculating further, this could be representative of the civilization that gave us the Long Count calendar. An additional speculation could find them living amongst us today…

If there are any “mysterious elders” amongst us today, perhaps they are suddenly disappearing, rather than risk a DNA match….

Bunker for Sale of the Week

Not really. But really, there are websites that sell bunkers. If you have the cash (or a stupid bank that will give a 2012er a 20-year mortgage), you can attain a survival spot via little effort.
This one is unusual in that it is above ground, but seems to be an ex-government facility.
This house is not fancy or elegant but it is a great start for a true survivalist on a budget

Toyota Problem Due To Cosmic Rays?

Toyota Problem Due To Cosmic Rays?

While this has no direct connection to 2012 itself, it does highlight how easily we are able to forget the extraordinary forces of cosmic rays, which are zapping through each of us right now, which account for 50% of current rates of genetic mutations, and an increase of which could be a tragedy for life on Earth.
It may sound far-fetched, but federal regulators are studying whether sudden acceleration in Toyotas is linked to cosmic rays. Radiation from space long has affected airplanes and spacecraft, and is known for triggering errors in computer systems, but has received scant attention in the auto industry.
The questions show how deep regulators and automakers may have to dig to solve the mysteries of sudden acceleration. An anonymous tipster whose complaint prompted regulators to look at the issue said the design of Toyota’s microprocessors, memory chips and software could make them more vulnerable than those of …

Another Supernova Threat

Another Supernova Threat

The standard spiel from orthodox science is that only supernovae within 100 light years of Earth could wipe us out. It’s refreshing to see in an article (at this admission:
Astronomers have previously said that any supernova explosion within 100 light-years of Earth would likely be devastating, but beyond 100 light-years, it’s not known for sure what the effects might be. However, astronomers have also been keeping an eye on Eta Carinae, a potential supernova about 7,500 light-years away. One factor, astronomers say, is how powerful a given supernova is.
Nicely said. We don’t know enough about supernovae to make predictions about one occurring in our vicinity. About all we do know is, all other things being equal, closer is more dangerous. But all supernovae are not equal, so we should still be wary of those that we are not 100% sure of.
Now we have a newly identified threat:
The two stars …

Dec 21 2011 is -366 Day

Dec 21 2011 is -366 Day

Like a NASA rocket launch, we can create a 2012 countdown. While several 2012 countdowns have been running for some time, an “official” countdown would have more gravity. I don’t need to explain the power of “this time next year” and how it can translate globally.
So rather than just suggesting, I am stating: Dec 21 2011 will be known as -366 day. The reference to the leap year could lessen the wrath from the scientific community.
The concept is simple. On Dec 21 2011, merely take a trial run of whatever you believe will happen one year later.
If you have unconvinced family, it’s a good opportunity to show them that the exercise is more like a campimg trip.
If you are unsure how committed you are, use this day to test our convictions.
If you have a Über-bunker in the distant highlands, use this day to test that everything works.
Or even just have …

Asteroids: We Aren’t Prepared

Asteroids: We Aren’t Prepared

NASA is looking, and does find asteroids. Unfortunately their efforts are far from comprehensive, and our planet is woefully under-prepared relative to our technical capabilities. A few months back New Scientist published what will hopefully be a wake-up call to politicians globally:
The asteroid is on a collision course with Earth. It is the size of a skyscraper and it’s big enough to raze a city to the ground. Oh, and it will be here in three days.
Far-fetched it might seem, but this scenario is all too plausible. Certainly it is realistic enough that the US air force recently brought together scientists, military officers and emergency-response officials for the first time to assess the nation’s ability to cope, should it come to pass.
They were asked to imagine how their respective organisations would respond to a mythical asteroid called Innoculatus striking the Earth after just three days’ warning. The asteroid consisted of …

2012 Forum – Becoming Very International

With almost 6000 members and over 200,000 posts, 2012 forum has started to attract folk from more and more diverse parts of the planet. Here’s a quick peek at how truly global the 2012 meme has become:
Russian survivalist shows off his amphibious armored vehicle, purchased for “1500 $ + 20 bottles of vodka + 1 pig”

A Scottish lass dreamed that she was at a “dock on top of a mountain unloading a ship. I was unloading Prams with babies in them. I looked at the sky, it was pink and I could see all the planets, they were lining up.”
A Norwegian member skilled in “cars, electrics, electronics…computers, wood work, welding, metal shaping, stone work”
A South African member who has been “preparing for 2012 for the last 6 years.”

What if nothing happens in 2012?

What if nothing happens in 2012?

This is a common question, and one that especially concerns 2012 prophets, 2012 fearmongers, and 2012 spiritual evolutionists – for they could all have egg on their face.
First of all, there’s a good chance something will happen, because most years somewhere in the world there is a major story. 2012 will still have legs, because proponents of the meme will say things like:

that earthquake / volcano / tsunami is the beginning of the end
that politician just voted in is the anti-Christ
that new scientific discovery will lead to something disastrous
that piece of heart-warming good news indicates the start of a global spiritual uplifting

But also, don’t dismiss the human ability to self-fulfill prophecy, in either a good or bad way. If enough people believe we will undergo a spiritual transformation in 2012, and cause it to happen within their selves – who knows what the flow on effects might be?

Conversely, if enough …

WR 104 – Potential Space Nasty

WR 104 – Potential Space Nasty

I really like “bad astronomy” articles, but even more so when they admit they are scared. In this instance it is a binary star known as Wr 104. At a distance of 5000-8000 light years a supernova is not expected to harm us. But a Gamma Ray Burst might, especially if it is aimed straight at us!
GRBs are a special type of supernova. When a very massive star explodes, the inner core collapses, forming a black hole, while the outer layers explode outwards. Due to a complex and fierce collusion of forces in the core, two beams of raw fury can erupt out of the star, mind-numbing in their power. Composed mostly of high-energy gamma rays, they can carry more energy in them than the Sun will put out in its entire lifetime. They are so energetic we can see them clear across the Universe, and having one too close …

Nostradamus: Epistle to Henry II

Nostradamus: Epistle to Henry II

For anyone who caught the recent cable TV shows regarding Nostradamus and 2012, here’s something that might tickle your fancy:
Michel Nostradamus wrote an Epistle to Henry II in 1558 which basically described his prophecies, and seems more rooted in reality than his quatrains. Within it, he says:
…most of the prophetic quatrains are so ticklish that there is no making way through them, nor is there any interpreting of them.
But what caught my eye was:
This will be preceded by a solar eclipse more dark and gloomy than any since the creation of the world, except that after the death and passion of Jesus Christ. And it will be in the month of October than the great translation will be made and it will be such that one will think the gravity of the earth has lost its natural movement and that it is to be plunged into the abyss of …

A Russian Solution to the Apophis non-problem

A Russian Solution to the Apophis non-problem

Universe Today recently reported a Russian plan to deflect an asteroid that is not expected to be a problem:
Russia is considering sending a spacecraft to deflect a large asteroid and prevent a possible collision with Earth, according to a radio interview by the head of the country’s space agency. Anatoly Perminov said the space agency will hold a meeting soon to assess a mission to Apophis, and said NASA, ESA, the Chinese space agency and others would be invited to join the project. Apophis is a 270-meter (885-foot) asteroid that was spotted in 2004. It is projected to come within 29,450 kilometers (18,300 miles) of Earth in 2029, and currently has an estimated 1-in-250,000 chance of hitting Earth in 2036.
Perminov said that he heard from a scientist that Apophis is getting closer and may hit the planet. “I don’t remember exactly, but it seems to me it could hit the …

Post-2012 Gear: Kyoto Box

If anything good ever comes from the poverty in Africa, it’s the recent ingenious inventions providing self-help at affordable prices. Although the aim is to provide cooking/boiling facilities for the poor, this is a great concept for a post-cataclysm scenario. The parts are easily scavenged, and most people would have the skills to construct a Kyoto Box. Therefore boiling water and cooking food should be easy to achieve for just about anyone.

It might look a bit primitive and simplistic, but it is 400 times more cost effective than photovoltaics – and that’s if you buy one ready made. If you recycle, it’s basically free.

All you need is:

2 cardboard boxes – one a little smaller than the other
a knife
black spray paint
aluminium foil
duct tape
insulation / packing material

In terms of scavenging, a supermarket or hardware store, and a dumpster are about all you’d need to source the above items.

Here’s the official site – …

Thank You, eBay

The postie knocks on our door more days than not, delivering parcels. Most of these are used books I’ve sourced from around the globe that have some connection to 2012. For people like me, leaving no stone unturned, that’s a lot of books. We don’t know what will happen in 2012, so many topics need to be traversed.
Last year I wrote a piece on Comet Caesar (which is the cover story this month, Hard Evidence magazine, only available in Australia I feel). That was easy – one book on the comet itself, and less than a dozen on killer comets in general. But for the 2012 meme there is no limit to the number of books I can potentially buy.
There is, however, a limit to how many I can read, even if I had the good fortune to work on 2012 full-time. At some point I need to admit that …

What Does Mel Gibson Know About 2012?

What Does Mel Gibson Know About 2012?

Note: this is pure speculation, or even could be classed as fantasy!
Mel Gibson made the news today, again, due to his behavior. A reporter asked him about his public profile over the last few years, and implied that it might affect ticket sales for his new movie (yes, it didn’t do so well in its opening weekend, but Avatar could be a reason). Poor Mel was looking decidedly uncomfortable, and at the very end called the reporter an arsehole.
Mel has been very good in recent times, apologizing and trying to improve his image, so today was a little bit unusual. What may have triggered this behavior? Did he just get out of bed on the wrong side? Did he have a hangover? Is he going cold turkey? Or did he just find out something new about 2012?
Plenty of 2012ers believe that governments know about whatever will occur in 2012, and …
