surely this would be reason enough to start a species survival contingency plan! start sending lots and lots of us into space
we cant keep all of our eggs in one basket !

You forget that YOU and I are not part of THEIR contingency plan...

Godtards live to die -- they're nihilists. Everything awaits them in some shangri la in the sky of their imagining and each and everyone of them, irrespective of brand of delusion, will get a seat at the table provided their prerequisite precepts are followed.

Hence why they're forever predicting doomsday scenarios -- to re-enforce the delusion. 👍

Unless I misread, but who are theses "experts" in the op?

We only see everything, if we have eyes in the back of our heads.

However, I'm not buying into this, simply for the sheer fact that if it was massive enough to wipe out man kind, I would imagine some alarms would be going off somewhere.

Well this site likes the posts to pertain to the Original Post.(OP)
In that light; I am thinking that there will be no impact from any Asteroids or anything else that would constitute an Extinction Level Event.(ELE) next week...

To answer the rest of Your Post;
The Mods are fair, mostly, and tight to the guidelines set forth...

The posters are Cool, and Not so cool. Depends on your definitions thereof... You will find some down to Earth people, and some with their heads in the clouds. Hey, Just like in real life, eh?! LOL!!


BTW, Welcome to ATS!
Go to the Introductions Forum and drop in a post that tells us all about Yourself! Enjoy your time spent here. Syx...

So the only reason someone thinks that an asteroid might hit is because of their faith? And NASA says there aren't even any asteroids that are going to be around us during that part of the month? Sounds like a safe week to me.

I was at least expecting a scientist with different calculations than NASA and an asteroid on a near-miss trajectory with Earth when I opened this thread.

On second thought, who is the "expert" identified in the thread's title? What is he a professor of? He has no data to back up his claim that an asteroid will hit next week!

Meh, we already hadthings like that before, but i'm still waiting to see this asteroid on the sky.

Professor Robert Walsh urges scientists to take the threat of an impending apocalypse seriously - because look what happened to the dinosaurs.




A research expert insists the world could end soon because of a catastrophic meteor impact - despite NASA's reassurances. Conspiracy theorists say it's time to say bye-bye to our loved ones as they claim Earth's final day could come anywhere from the 22 to the 28 September .

They predict a plethora of horrors will ravage the planet including meteor strikes, earthquakes, tsunamis - with some suggesting they will be sent by God. However, Nasa says it is constantly monitoring the heavens for signs of any incoming asteroids and has given the all-clear.


The article also tried to counter his idea by saying that Nasa could not miss an Asteroid that big coming towards us, which i agree:


The international astronomy community is taking seriously the slim threat of a devastating collision with asteroid. In April 2015, an international conference organised by the European Space Agency brought together several scientific disciplines (including astronomers, physicists and engineers) to debate and role-play the possibilities around dealing with an Earth directed asteroid collision.

NASA indicates that if there was any object large enough to do the type of destruction in September indicated by claims across the blogs and web postings, we would have seen it by now.

NASA’s Near Earth Object office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory is at the forefront of what is now a worldwide collaboration to watch the skies for any asteroids that could do harm to our planet.

Their “Spaceguard” programme detects and tracks these objects as well as trying to determine their nature; such as what is their mass or what could they be made of.


Do you think we will be hit soon? If an Asteroid doesn't kill us, i'm pretty sure humans could do the job:

Comet Catalina is on it's way .will be here about the 7th of November. From my research I believe the earth will pass through the comets exit trail a few months after it passes.
This is a new comet and this is its first trip into our solar system and it is loaded with debis
When the earth passes through the debis many thousands of meteors will fall upon the earth for how long I don't know mabye hours or days of bombardment. All sizes.
There is one more thing about comets they are like cats they have tails and they do what ever they want. They are the most unpredictable object in the universe.
Everytime a comet enters the solar system the sun or star resets the trajectory of the comet .
So this is a new comet its trajectory is not set so when it slingshots around our sun it might head straight for us. It is possible.
Another problem is the string of pearls when the comets fall apart when it passes a star like comet shoemaker. And that hit Jupiter.

If Catalina did this I will be sh@tting bricks .

I expect 1/3 of all the trees on earth to be Burt from fires started by meteors.
It will plunge the world into WW3
And the meteor storm will. Accadentally trigger a nuclear strike.

Catalina is a new comet and this one is very unpredictable.

Would the officials even tell us if something like this what to hit us. It would serve no purpose to panick the people.

If we are talking ELE contingency to preserve the species should we not just save our dna and our genetic diversity in DNA vaults and send them on space boats to other planets with the technology to clone humans rather than sending actual living humans ?

You have to wonder where all the black budget money is going. Maybe someone knows something and is building a huge underground base.

Amazing how many people (even on this thread) like to reassure themselves of a safe existence by pointing out "the experts" would surely have noticed a threat to said existence by now. Fallacy much?

There are literally zillions (yes, that is the the technical term) of objects flying around our solar system of various sizes. Some are really big and "the experts" are pretty confident about them:

en.wikipedia.org...

However, the smaller ones are where the trouble is. They are really hard to detect much less track. The window of warning could be very small. They might not cause an ELE on Earth but they would defiantly bring a world of hurt to a given area if the approach is right. The long term empirical evidence demonstrating this certainty is unassailable.

users.tpg.com.au...

I have no clue on this particular object as I am not "an expert". Yet I am not going to feel smug over some NASA public affairs filtered reassurances my tax dollars are well spent at their fine agency.


Indeed, our solar sysem is very huge. But an asteroid with 10 miles in diameter could be picked up by our fellow astronemers (and considering they map for asteroids everyday.) but i really doubt we would be able to stop an Asteroid without a really big bomb.

Several states ARE taking part of some signage program where major freeways are scattered with signs saying, "American citizens are requested to please have a stockpile of food and water enough for 30 days! -September is survivalist month!" I know GA is one so I'm sure u can Google image it. Funny I never heard this month had such an assigned meaning to it.

I would love to go into the pretty headscratchingly coincidental six books of the Bible are in both giving a warning for this month and because it has been chronologically correct thus far (although I admit, to a nonbeliever the passages are far more vague than Nostradamus quatrains). But The Torah or Talmud has 9 signs to look for in order rabbis worldwide just in the last month or so have agreed were finally met and in order. Discussing this on ATS2009 would have been awesome and informative but I ain't no dummy and I know ATS2015 would yield a discussion of temper tantrums, people FURIOUS that they are expected to put up with living in a world where lower beings believe in religious teachings or bullies who mistake looking like a fool for wit with the famous, "whaaaa I feel sorry for myself living with and for those who think some imaginary giant up in the clouds is watching us whaa blaa plaa!" (So trite and pathetically beaten to death with overuse and makes no impact but screaming from a mountain top we have a total poser and pitiable person in our midst who post all day about civil rights, equality, our need for understanding our brothers and sisters across the planet, but most importantly tirade after crybaby b!tch fest proving the former topics are but desperately needed doses of attention, confrontation, and hear-myself-talk addictions btw I love me some intelligent atheists who are here to share knowledge...why, they're just A-ok-diddly and THEN some!)

The most unsettling thing I've learned in a while though..

I can't believe I'm stuck deciding if I should be greatly concerned and working up a storm to prepare or if this bastard is just another evil elite SOB who hasn't the capacity to see the recklessness behind his loose tongue..

The French Foreign Minister said something like, "Nous avons jusqu'au 23 Septembre pour eviter un catastrophe et vous devriez etre stupide de se moquer de cela que je viens de dire!" Or you'd be dumb to scoff at my warning but we have til 9/23 to avoid catastrophe. He continued saying if nothing else a war attack, emp, or revealing the dollar and all debts need resetting after failure and that he's talking about something between 23-28 that's a sure thing and of a degree of destruction that will be the first of its kind since humans appeared on earth.

I have no opinion yet but ugh, the source at least is enough to give a rated of type spook...

I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Even if they all know about it and are lying, any preparations you make won't help you much one way or the other.

Well, if it strikes i guess we wont have to worry any more about martial law, the illumnatti, isis, ww3, reptiliean aliens, cern, planned parenthood killing unborn babies, who killed jfk, why we went into iraq, what exactly brought down the twin towers, what obama is really trying to do, etc...

sounds like a plus to me!

There would be no holding anything back from anyone. Do you realize how many professional astronomers and observatories that there are in the world?

"Officials" would find out when we all did, but they might have better opportunities to hide.

And hey there's a lot of normal in abnormal, right. Everyday frustrations can make the idea appealing, until you realize you deal with s*** because there's gold in this life. It's worth it for most, despite the pain.

But I"ll say--even though this matter has a rating of 0 on my importance meter--I'm not afraid if it's a quick mostly pain free death. Otherwise? Well otherwise I'd rather deal with the normal pains I'm used to.

Like someone else said the daily mirror is a tabloid newspaper in the UK.
