Just keeping an update with what lies ahead, a lot of things are occuring that is very Tribulation like and it is seems to be growing towards it. I do not expect everyone to agree but just keeping a look out for now, its not WW3 just yet but it may not be about humans and maybe some other threat. Chemtrails and Sun annomalies? Do they have something in common?

Revelation 8 (King James Version)

12And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise

Does the bible say there is any way to prevent it? if not I am not so sure the information is that useful.

We've been studying the Sun since 1814. Joseph von Fraunhofer was the first to study the Sun's cycles and spectrums.

It is a cycle as someone pondered on the first page,
Instead of trying the foolish task of attempting to monitor the sun with accuracy,
Your scientists should instead be studying the easier target of your closer gas giants,
The storms & cycles they go through are very similar to those on the sun,
Not in direct correlation, but the way they work/happen & cycle are almost identical,

That is all i shall contribute to this topic as i cannot say anymore,

Looks like marketing hype to me. A rational building for some great investment leading to some magic solution. I seriously doubt if "scientists" have a clue about any of this in any way. Just make believe money laundering.

Just a thought - Has this been verified?

I wonder if NASA is trying to drum up publicity=money. It would be somewhat easy to do, just say there is a problem with the sun and we need to do something about it...

I have no idea. At this point in time I don't trust any of them. They are all trying to sell something (via taxes).

Any chance this could impact Global Warming?

I’m going to make a few mostly controversial statements in this, so here we go.

Firstly. I am open to religion, although not a direct follower of any. I pose a question to you all, especially to ‘TH3ON3’, why do we believe the Bible and other such texts to be figurative, legendary or prophesying?
I have read some texts that have suggested that the beloved Bible is more or less a scientific book. Although this may be hard to believe, the Mayans have accurately foreseen many of the celestial events that have occurred in our life time, as has the Bible. The Bible is written in code however and this makes it harder for us to see the truth in what everyone was interpreting and suggesting all those years ago.

Secondly, at the time of the controversial Big Bang objects, planet sized junk rock and ice and fire where sent flying in a lot of directions.
As this all settled down it became a pattern or cycle if you will. We, as a relatively smart race of bipedal primates, have become too comfortable with a pattern or cycle. Now that the cycle is either;
1). being disturbed by different energies,
2). moving on to the next segment of a cycle, or
3). Both
We are jumping up and down, like primates do in alarm. Not being used to such a change, as if we thought it was going to last forever!
As it has been stated we do not have enough info to actually make a proper assumption of what is happening or going to happen to the sun, solar system, and universe in the future.
However I would make a large bet that we as a planet and race will get through this ok! And if we don’t take the dinosaurs for example, it was just their time to end. It could be ours. Is there really any thing that we can do that can stop celestial powers???

Thirdly, I pose a question that has already been asked. To this day I have never seen any evidence of what caused the mass evolution of both mammals and dinosaurs before mammals, and only God knows what else before the Dinos. It has been speculated that the power of solar radiation is partly to blame??? If the Sun really is doing what Nasa says it is, and the solar system really is in one big cycle, I believe that we maybe in for the next stage of life one earth (possibly other worlds, and the birth of new life). I'd would prefer that, than for life to end I think!

And just a quick note, that I hope most agree with. We do not need the sun to destroy us, or cosmic and solar radiation to kill us. Homo sapiens all ready do a stand up job of that.

Edit: On second thought they may not be as controversial as i though they would be.

Well there is my two cents worth, take what you want and ponder one what will. It’ll be great to read the replies.

I think rather than Global warming, let me suggest Global cooling.
How else do you think the ice ages were caused all those years ago?
Of course there were other factors such as gas build ups and other earthly anomalies in our atmosphere were to blame for the ice ages as well.
I do think though, reading several texts on the subject of Ice ages you will find dates that coincide with a solar cycle or pattern in our very solar system. What is happening now, is just another part of the cycle, that has not been seen through human eyes before.

Well the reason why I believe the bible is that I have been witness to actual physical proof that the One who was behind the writings is the creator of this universe. I can say that because again the intervention in my life was so powerful and awesome in scope that to not believe would be to deny actual scientific proof.

I think you need to take the bible at its word. Yes some of it was written in a type of symbolistic code, and even though it may not have made sense to those who read it thousands of years ago, we now can see that it makes perfect sense for the times we are currently in.

Let's face it, God is uber smart compared to us, so why wouldn't He direct the prophets to write it in a kind of code so those who couldn't understand wouldn't worry over the implications of the end time troubles described.

As for what this means to all of us, I think it means we need to be vigilant to watch and take appropriate action before we are hurt by the things that are coming.

This being said, it is somewhat worrisome even to those who will escape the worst of it. But again I think it's best to warn others in hopes of helping them to see the light of the true path laid out for those who would seek to become something more than a mere intelligent animal that ends in nothingness after x amount of years.

I'm trying to tell all those who will heed the warning that troublous times are directly ahead, whether it be the sun going nova or any of the numerous other catastrophes that the bible says is coming.

I can tell you that there is hope and a promise that those who believe in the Son and His message and not the "sun" can and will ascend to a much higher plane of existence, one in which there will be no more heat or physical limitations and liabilities.

I’m not denying anyone’s belief in god, or any unifying belief, I can’t do that, no one has the right to do that. I in fact I respect that people can and have the power to believe in something, no matter what it is. I was however just posing a statement that I believe and that despite everything may be true. Possible until proven impossible so to speak.
I would also like to say, that I too have had events in my life that have made me wonder about every thing to the point that I almost became fully religious. However I am not.

Welcome to the club Wisdom. I too do not consider myself religious.

Cheers thanks for the welcome.
If you do not consider ur self religious, why is it that most of you comments do not seem to be open to other explanations to the events occuring round the sun. for all we know, aliens cud b the culpret, lol although i do find that unlikely.

Well it depends on what the definition of religious means to you in order for me to answer. I believe what I do because of empirical evidence made known by The One. If that fits your definition of religious then...

I am curious, rather trying to speculate how religious or not some one is, I respect peoples views. I just like to know, with out being to annoying, how they come to their conclusions of religion, life and their surroundings.
To me, what you have explained is a religious view on life. However to you this obviously isn't so.
I don’t mean to pry into life and such. It is just interesting to see religious and scientific views being expressed about topics such as these. People can only really truly believe in what they know and what the see. I stand on the side of science where as you although not religious, as you say, stand with religion in this subject. One must ask the question if religion and science can talk so passionately about a subject, the sun for instance, one must ask how closely related the two ways of viewing life really are.

Yes it does seem a pardox doesn't it. A scientific discussion mixed with an obvious asking of the suspension of the same scientific laws. But I believe in both. And since we are currently restricted to this finite universe
it may be hard for those who have never witnessed the breaking of the universal laws to understand my point of view.

I have witnessed the breaking of the known laws of physics; and I'm by no means alone in my beliefs.
