In the past we've had people from all corners promoting doom....I'm not saying that you are doing that at all but every time someone says it people laugh it off and nothing happens, what do you think people will do now though? Laugh or Believe?, Okay yes it's bound to happen sooner or later i believe that, but even if it does happen......where are we going to hide? we have NOWHERE to run. And i am a believer in life from elsewhere in the universe.....But if they have been apparently protecting us for millenia then whats stopping them from protecting us when "The Time" or Elenin comes?. I am also wondering if this floating city will be considered the modern age Noah's Ark......but i guess we'll get to it when the time comes right? thats if we're all still here though.

The orbit of the comet has not changed since it was discovered. This is a misunderstanding of how the orbit is calculated. As more observations are made, the calculations of its orbit become more accurate.
There is no reason to believe its orbit will change while inbound our outbound. What might change is its long term orbit. The next time it comes back, if it does (and it won't be for a very long time), it could very well be on a different path.
