Some press reports express concern that an asteroid could hit the Earth coming out of a "blind spot", such as the daylight sky or high southern latitudes where no Spaceguard telescopes are looking.


heh and what did Aussie Bloke suggest. Directly due SOUTH!

Exactly, so if it's a blind spot, how would it ever have been detected.

This, coupled with the dust that our solar system is entering, COULD explain why amateur astronomers can't see them. I'm not saying I believe it, I really can't decide one way or the other, just theorizing.

Didn't Aussie Bloke say it WOULDN'T be the end of the world? I thought he said that there would be survivors?

If I recall correctly he did say there would be survivors. And depending on where it hit there would be x number of survivors. He didn't really give any specific estimates. Survival was not discussed very much at all, only mentioned in passing really. Of course, if he lives in Australia and the thing(s) are coming form due south then he isn't much concerned about survival anyway...

This has degenerated into a philisophical debate but I don't mind...

Good. Americans are too lazy to begin with. If I survive I think this could be the chance of a lifetime to remake society and humanity into something better... Gee I hope the government facilites fail and everyone dies except me and a few others.....This could actually be fun if it pans out right.....

Nooooo, no more going out to the movies on Fridays and/or Saturday nights? AAAAAAARGH.


In a serious note, there is something going on, and we are all noticing, at least most of us. You can't say that all scientist disagree, because you will be lying, even in this science takes two views, one that says some changes are coming our way "in our lifetime" for "whatever reasons", the other says its normal and it will go back to what it was.
IMHO the second view is very naive and don't even take notice of the effects these same changes brought in the past.

But who knows, it is possible that the Atlantic conveyor will go back to normal....
What I can say is that I am not so sure its an asteroid coming, at least not yet, but changes are happening, they seem to get faster and more severe each year, as Art Bell calls it "The Quickening" is real. How severe or how fast down the road is it? noone really knows yet imo.

Fact is we will still have our technology, even if we survive this the knowledge wont go but it will be a long time for us to impliment it again, with luck a bit more carefully and productivly next time.

THANK YOU RUSTISWORDZ EXACTLY MY OPINION.

What technology survives can sustain us partially until a group can stabilize and rely completely on essentially feudal-age tech that they produce themselves. And eventually, as roups grow larger and merge together, factories can be restarted and manufacturing can begin again. This will probably take several generations bu the problem is that then we are back to about 1900 with A LOT less resources than we had in 1900 the first time around. So the primary focus for this second try at modernization without destroying ourselves will HAVE to be developing deep space travel and spreading out to toher planets.

Here's MO of the only way humanity can hope to survive for a long time: develop massive spaceships that are the size of a small planet that can be put in orbit around any start in the correct place so there will be no devastating and unpredicatble patterns like what earth might do to us right now. (polar reversal) IMO, planets have regular, devastating patterns to wipe their surfaces clean of life to allow things to start over. Humanity is about toi be the next victim...

Well here's a thought, whats to say we have a second try at modernization. In other words, what if all the devistation and 50%ish of the population gone actually sends civilization into a reversal of sort. Possibly even a religious uprising forbidding greater technological advancements in certain areas. I'm not trying to say we are gonna get blasted back to the stoneage-just thinking that the remaining peoples scattered around the globe might just be seperated enough and damaged enough to do such a thing.

So what ya thinks?

Well, nice of Bloke to see the future too. He's an astronomer, if he is who he says, so now he would be attempting to predict the aftermath as well?

Personally, like I stated before, I think he robbed this information from various sources and put it all together into a story that would make a JAMMIN movie, and some of it is based on theory, and current events, but the addition of the 3 objects headed twards earth is false info.

This is just my own gutt feeling on the mater.

The "cry wolf" part is very interesting and true. Those that wish us NUMB have done a very good job....well, for some of us anyway. We keep hearing of these things to come that will put extreme fear into men and yet nothing really comes of it. 9/11 was a perfect example of our reaction to things. Those that were not in the area of the WTC and could only see it on the TV said it seemed to them that it was "like a movie". That reaction blew me away. Although, I myself felt the same way. I was emotionless to it....and devastated at the same time. Also a good example of the "Hegelian Dialectic" at work.

If in fact what this man says has any truth to it......the truth is that it will happen one way or another. We are doomed to those things which are written. Revelation.

There will be no frontin when revelation comes.

I very much felt 9/11 when it occured. I walked around in a state of shock for a few days. It also effected my life personally in the following months. I'm not desensitized yet. Like the Nick video, I didnt want to watch it. Just the thought alone made me ill. Accidently clicked a wrong link one day and came face to face with his head, and man...ewwww.

So I still have a bit left yet. But his point about crying wolf is valid. Everything is slowly erroding mans "shock" factor. A good example is the war, because its all over the media, everyone is becoming desensitized to it.

Yes DarkBlade....I felt it too, although the desensitizing IS working for the masses!! There are a BUNCH of us who know the truth we just need to get it out there.

I agree, I think a major asteroid or comic strike would definitely blast the survivors back to the stone age within a couple of generations. This would depend, of course, on where the thing hit and the scale of the damage.

We may have knowledge of technology, but it is doubtful that we would have the resources to put any of it into practice.

Knowing the theory behind electricity generation, for example, is a far cry from actually being able to generate electricity in a word where a large proportion of the natural resources has been destroyed and there is no way of getting to those resources which are left with no power, effective communications, transport or distribution.

Most surviving individuals or even small groups would even lack the means and knowledge to build themselves effective shelters, light a fire and keep it going, purify water, catch and kill their food, or basically cope with any of the essentials of life.

Okay, you'd have tin openers and guns for a while. But what happens when they go wrong and there's no way of repairing them.

What happens when existing food stocks are exhausted or spoiled?

Life would be a day to day struggle, scratching survival out of the little that was left.

Advanced technological knowledge would be forgotten quickly because it would be impossible to utilise and irrelevant to everyday survival.

With no-one left and no time to properly educate our offspring the next generation would be even less aware than we are and focused primarily on the skills required for hunter-gathering and rudimentary agriculture.

Power stations, the internet, space travel, cars, even the steam engine would be distant from them and would soon become almost mythical.
