Okay, maybe a bid sensationalist but according to reports the Earth may be hit by a big asteroid in 2019.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/2147879.stm

Do you think that it is likely or are the scientists easing us in gently, preparing us for the event?

I think they already released this news so that insurance companies have an excuse to increase their life premiums or any other premium now for every policy beyond 2019.

BTW I'm sure the asteroid will miss earth just like on previous occasions (I can recall some scientist also predicting the end of the world when the asteroid missed earth).

L-188, can you explain a bit more about the Mayan calendar?
How would it end at all?
That's pretty abstract to me as I can't imagine how the Julian one would end.

Hey, I have good news.

On further review, it turns out the Mayan Calander ends in 2012. So we still have a decade of debachery left!!!

Don't waste it.

D-AIGW

The Mayan Calender is the one that was in use in the Mayan Empire in the Meso-America.

First heard about it on Art Bell's show.

This is the website of the guest who was on the air that night.

The astronomers who discovered this asteroid have pointed out that further research on it's orbit will probably show it will miss Earth.....this time.
It was only discovered very recently.
The one that gets us we may well not see, until it's too late.
It won't be like the 'Armageddon' film that's for sure.
Not so outlandish to think it could happen, after all, in the 4 billion year history of Earth, how long have us highly developed Apes been walking around?
Less than 2 million years I think.
If that Comet impact 65 million years ago hadn't rapidly accelerated the Dinosaurs demise, we wouldn't be around now.

I would just like to add that IMHO *if* in fact the human race does not elinimate itself and in fact our ultimate demise is brought about by an asteroid chances are that we will not even see it coming. The asteroid will just sneak up on us and strike us when we least expect it. If could be tomorrow, next week, month.... Whenever.

Thats my morbid rant for now. Back to listenin' to ATC.

Nostradamus said the world wouldn't end until 3797. Not sure, however, if that includes human life.


Dear moderators: No.
