Are We All Going To Die In 2019?

Wed Jul 24, 2002 6:26 pm

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).

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.

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.

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.

I read that in some convention, the world's leading scientists made a list of the top 3 causes of the end of humans:

1) Famine
2) Space catastrophe(astroid etc.)
3) Nuclear War

*Follows Dripstick er the Grimm Reaper..*

Anyways so if this asteroid comes do we do it like in Armageddon or just send every aviaiable nuke at it? And it all fails and it strike the earth it would suck to be the last man or woman alive so I'd go with Arsenal's approach.

Speaking of Armageddon how come I'm hearing the that song from Armageddon each time I read this post?

Great, so now it's going to be a religious thread, and we can never have enough of those. But if it pleases you, how about a swipe at Christianity from someone else?  Big grin (Btw, excelleng point, Klaus, even if it was just a joke!)

Redngold is correct in what the Bible states
He's correct that it's fact or he's correct that the Bible states it? Just because the Bible says it doesn't make it fact. The person who wrote it could have been drunk, high, stupid, or any combination thereof. Man, if I spouted some "teachings" like that and claimed it was the word of God, I'd be hauled off to a mental institution.

And now for the far more pressing question - who uploaded the Armageddon theme??  Big grin

The smallest size for an asteroid to create a global catastrophe on impact is 1 kilometer. In other words, if this asteroid is 1 kilometer or larger, then we are all doomed if it strikes the Earth. And I stress if . You see, this is a job for Nightcruiser. A piece of cake, a walk in the park. When 2019 rolls around, I will personally deflect this asteroid out to space and save you all. So relax, enjoy the summer, 'cause ol' Night here is going to protect and defend the users of airliners.net from this potential cataclysm.

Strickerje, I was saying that Redngold correctly quoted what it says in the book. I didnt say "ITS TRUE, ITS TRUE!!! IM BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE FOR BELIEVING IT!!!!" All I said was that what Redngold said was, in fact, in the Bible. Im not forcing you to believe anything, I dont know why you and Klaus must try to make fun of my, and many other peoples, beliefs. I just take offense when people do that. Just leave what I said alone, why are you taking such a defensive stance when you see things like what I wrote? Its not going to bite you, just read it and move on....move on.....

Unfortuneatly, the world technology tree has not developed a cork or a plug suitable enough to fit into mianus. Perhaps I should ductape my exit so any potential gas leakage would not occur, thus saving the world for another 5-1/4 year. Unless my fart gas backfires I would be more volatile than Molotov Cocktails.(my face turns red) Also with the current levels of pollution in the world, the gases from me and the smogs will combine to form a SUPER GAS! Quick as a taxi cab, stinkier than a Chinese Ox, Green like Pickles, and density like sperm, this plague will shroud the world and all life will perish except me!!

I will die of old age while watching more Reruns of Oprah followed by: Who Wants to be a Canadian Millionaire. What is that, like 6 cents American?



Seriously, Asteroids to hit earth frequently. Only thing is that you guys never hear it. If you are hardcore astronomers just as hardcore as planespotting, you probably could hear about it thru the internet.
Most of these impacts aren't asteroids but merely space dust or reminant MEIR chunks that haven't yet entered the atmosphere.
There are a few asteroids included in the impact bunch. Most are tiny like marble size, finger nail size, nipple size, or at largest: basketball size to 2002 Honda Civic size. They barely do anything to the surface. The big Honda Civic size ones often break up cuz of the thick polluted atmosphere that Earth has.
This case, we thank Los Angeles and Mexico City for their large contribution of pollutants.  Smile

I bet this 2019 one will also miss earth. I duno how big it is but I think life will go good and we will forget about this in year 2020.
Back in like 1996 I heard that there was an asteroid 4km in size which just missed earth by near 100000 km.(3 hours) It streaked right between earth and the moon. B-Cuz the earth is always moving as it rotates, if its position was 3 hours earlier in space, the thing would of hit and it would of been bad news for us.
We get alota close encounters like these, again from what I heard. Most aren't significant enuf for the public to know.
There has been ones big as Buses and shiz that got into earth. Some of these video footage I have seen look pretty freaky. Amazingly, they did little damage if none at all damage to mother earth.

Anybody remember Shoemaker Levy 9 back in 1994? What was it like 9-12 pieces in a 10 minute period?
