Softening Up The Target

Well they're at it again. These are the words of the story as we read them:

Whew! Asteroid Won't Hit Earth in 2029, Scientists Now Say
"The world can exhale a collective sigh of relief. A newfound asteroid tagged with the highest warning level ever issued will not strike Earth, scientists said Monday.
The giant space rock, named 2004 MN4, was said on Dec. 23 to have an outside shot at hitting the planet on April 13, 2029. The odds climbed as high as 1-in-37, or 2.7 percent, on Monday, Dec. 27.
Researchers had flagged the object as one to monitor very carefully. It was the first asteroid to be ranked 4 on the Torino Scale, a Richter-like measure for potentially threatening space rocks. The asteroid is about a quarter mile (400 meters) wide, large enough to cause considerable local or regional damage were it to hit the planet."

And of course a very familiar name in the game was quoted:
"'An Earth impact on April 13, 2029 can now be ruled out,' read a statement issued Monday evening by asteroid experts Don Yeomans, Steve Chesley and Paul Chodas at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory."

Isn't it interesting how these stories pop up every once in awhile? I say this because our planet exists in a literal sea of potentially dangerous objects. They say that less than a single MacDonald's staff are looking for these impactors. You need to understand that this is a purely uniformitarian idiom. They always play the odds and they never really believe that great disasters or conflagration is anywhere near a possibility. This is why the destruction from the tsunami is a real learning experience for the uniformitarians. It's why there were no warning systems present in the region. And that's why they must accept some real responsibility for the deaths.

So the statement that this single asteroid, 25 years from now, will not hit the earth is ludicrous.

We do not live in a safe place in the universe. I say this regardless of how many years we have lived without major destruction from space.

Disasters are real. We has a society believe that we can control these events that are impossible to control. Our paradigm is corrupted by our pride. There is another way to deal with these possibilities. Accepting chaos is difficult, however accepting it and viewing these possibilities from a catastrophist's point of view can provide understanding, improved priorities, and in the end... peace.

Two Earthquakes, One Causes Devistation

Some question Catastrophism. Today around the world, it's a bit more difficult to deny. Two days ago Tasmania was rocked by an 8.1 earthquake. The earthquake was centered 500 miles south of Tasmania near the Macquarie Islands. This was the largest earthquake since an 8.4 hit off the coast of peru in June 2001.

Until this morning...

Now it's big brother has hit. Fox news is saying that over 12,000 people are dead in Sri Lanka, Thailand, and the Maldives, after a tsunami was triggerd by an 8.9 earthquake off of the coast of Sumatra. Thousands were vacationing in the area, a popular Christmas tourist site. A USGS representative states that a thousand kilometer section of the earth's crust has been broken lose, causing the deadly tsunami over a thousand miles away. The quake was said to last over two minutes.

There is little that mankind can do about these events. These events will continue to increase in number and degree, just as they have over the last few decades. They increase even when our "experts" say that they have not. Uniformitarianism will shortly see its demise in the face of dead and dying human beings. But these things have long been foretold by the Prophets of old. Of course the "status quo" do not believe. God help us all.

Addendum (12/27/04): The death toll is now over 22,000. They are stating that the earthquake was actually a 9.0. And this a.m. Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America, stated that according to one report this event actually effected the rotation of the earth! It's hard to believe that, however we shall wait and see. Meantime in the eastern United States they are being hit by yet another heavy record breaking snowstorm.

Addendum (12/28/04): Death toll now 44,000. One "expert" reports that the quake that spawned the tsunami shook the entire earth like a bell being rang. Further that the earth's rotation was off due to the quake. The fracture in the earth's crust made by the quake was a thousand miles long.

Addendum (12/28/04 18:00): 52,000 dead.

Addendum (12/28/04 19:00): 60,000 dead and climbing. Disease numbers yet to come. There was NO warning system. Why not? Other parts of the world have a warning system. Uniformitarianism hubris. Hedonism was prevalent and doing well in most of the areas affected. But so many innocent. So many poor suffering for lack of a warning system. The DOW up almost 80 points today.

Addendum (12/29/04 07:00): 70,000 now feared dead.

Addendum (12/30/04): 120,000 dead.

Addendum (12/31/04): 150,000 dead.

The True Nature of Comets?

In less than a month, JPL/NASA will launch the Deep Impact Probe and Satellite. On July Fourth of 2005 they will put what they call the "Impactor" in the path of the comet Temple 1. The "Impactor", they say, will create a crater the size of a football field in the comet. They say that they will be able to look deep into the insides of the comet and learn more about the solar system's creation. Whoops... I used the word "Creation". I meant to say "organization". My greatest concern (among many), about this project is the inferred unwillingness of the status quo in astronomical science to consider alternative theories. Nothing new though. He who has the gold makes the rules, as they say. It must have concerned them or even upset them when President Bush said that he prays and that he knows people pray for him. That really doesn't fit in with their club rules.

Phobos Revisited

We keep seeing these unusual objects on the GOES images. In our comparison it looks remarkably like Phobos. Is it Phobos? Is it another Phobos? Before you answer, read Bart Jordan's work on the Repository. Phobos is not natural. And further it is related to humanity somehow. Read Bart Jordan's piece. It might change your mind. There are more than one or two species of extra terrestrials. There are more than one or two types of craft. Cubes are pouring in through the northern gate at a rate of more than you would ever believe. There are literally thousands. We have been counting. What do you think? What does the future of the next few years hold for humanity?
