He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

I haven't put a ton of thought into this. My head is kind of moving a million miles per hour here and I just want to get it down on "paper" to organize my thoughts. I'm with Carl Sagan. He despised psuedo-science. As do I. Mix psuedo science with religion and you have a recipe for disaster. But, then again, maybe it's psuedo-science for a reason? Maybe "real" scientists throw the "psuedo" label on it as a way to discredit anything that goes against the rigors of mainstream science?

Science and religion share more in common than either care to admit. I will be more than happy to go into this later.

For now:

I came across something interesting. Someone on Youtube had sent me an interesting video. It's more "art" than info but, it eventually led to more interesting videos. All pertaining to Elenin and "Three Days of Darkness". I don't put much stock in a lot of the ancient astronaut stuff, pan spermia, Nibiru (ugh), Planet X, 2012 or any other related terms. But, for one reason or another, this topic stood out.

First. The video that was sent to me.

Stick with me here. I've been following Elenin this past week quite a bit. I have no opinion on whether or not NASA is secreting data about the comet or not. And I'm not saying the amatuers in their garages are complete fools and we should disregard their findings. Data can be tampered with and both sides have a lot to lie about. NASA would lie to cover up and prevent mass hysteria. We can't have the sheeple running around outside of their pens. The stay-at-home amatuer astrologists and the like would lie or tamper with evidence/data to assuage their lust to prove NASA wrong, uncover a cover-up, and appease their fantasy for doomsday. I came across another interesting video on youtube in conjunction with the one that was sent to me. Again, I don't know what to believe. I'm just trying to get the facts in a straight line and not in the David Icke-ian fashion (twirls and whirls).

Makes sense I suppose. This isn't completely out of the realm of possibility. And as I understand it, the Christian Bible isn't the only holy text on this planet that has warned of an event like this. Three days of darkness.Oddly enough, September 26th is my birthday. That's neither here nor there.

I'm still researching this and I'm fairly sure this post will be a work in progress. I'm not concerned with it being wrong or right. Or me being wrong or right. I don't care. To be honest, if all this is phooey, then we live another day. It's only a matter of time before impact happens again. If it's true, and Elenin passing over the Sun is a sure sign of the ushering in of End Times, so be it. It was only a matter of time when that happened as well.

Just a link. Not definitive by any means.

Damned if we do.
Damned if we don't.

Interestingly enough, there seems to be a ton of information on Christian prophecy regarding comets. Of course, take prophecy from the mouthes of any one but a god with a grain of salt, but it's still quite interesting. This one being the most chilling.

Saint Hildegard:

"Before the comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scourgaed by want and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent will be devasted by earthquake, storm, and tidal wave. It will be divided and, in great part, submerged. That nation will also have many misfortunes at sea and lose its colonies.

[After the] great Comet, the great nation will be devastated by earthquakes, storms, and great waves of water, causing much want and plagues. The ocean will also flood many other countries, so that all coastal cities will live in fear, with many destroyed.

All sea coast cities will be fearful, and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed, and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease. For in none of those cities does a person live according to the Laws of God."

My attention span is short.
Interested in this comet thing though.
what evidence is there that its going to pass in front of the sun?

The second youtube video I posted. Granted, any video put up on youtube should be approached with skepticism. LOTS of it, in fact.

Oh yeah, I don't bother to watch YouTube videos.
Would be kinda cool with three days of darkness though.

Interesting. When's the SyFy movie come out? Not trying to be a smart-a**, but there seems to be a lot more drama there than there is any rational basis to formulate a theory on.

I'm with you. 100%. I'm just a sucker for eschatology.

I've read a bit about the three days of darkness and other prophecies. One of the immediate signs is that it will occur on a bitterly cold winter night with wild, howling winds. The way the winds were this winter, I half expected it to happen one of those nights! But then, I've read that afterwards, it will be spring.

So I'm thinking this year we're getting too far into the spring season for it, but sometime in March would seem to fit the time frame of that description.

Here's a bit more on the three days of darkness:

Oh, me too - or else I wouldn't be here - but more from the scientific perspective, ie what are the different theories, why did they develop, why do people believe them, what do the current day events (earthquakes, etc) mean wrt to it, if anything. I don't put any credence into any prophecies, though, be it from a book or a wacky youtube lady - but it sure is interesting to contemplate...

Are you familiar with the Saint Hildegard prophecy that I appended in my initial post?

there are many mentions of the 3 days of darkness not only in bible. Hopis, Mayas.

i first heard about by an Italian guy turned baba living without passport in India since decades. I 'd be surprised he ever read the bible. He was saying that during those 3 days earth would be absorbing all the prana on the surface. (That fits - and that was years ago before the 2012 hype)

there are too many "coincidences" over Elenin to do the "nothing to read here, move along folks" as the first posters here did. (A recurrent disinfo method)

like it is supposed to reach perihelion on the 09/10 17pm (i know seven hours early to make comet elenin comet nineleven )

the comet is supposed to pass between the sun and earth

no western science knows what's in the coma of a comet

the coma of comet can be few hundreds thousand of km long

"hope for the best, prepare for the worst"

I heard the coma was upwards of 88km? But, then I heard the thing wouldn't get close enough for any of that to be pulled into our atmosphere.

The Three Days Of Darkness may be sometime between September 20-30, 2011.

OL Predicts Massive Geomagnetic Storms In late September! Caused By Comet Elenin! Backed By Science!

Explanation: Due to the good reception my last thread garnered and also due to some more in depth research I now feel confident to make the following prediction based on some science which can be easily assesed by my fellow members.

Cataclysmic Cosmic Collisions: BioChemically Contagious Comet's, Coma's & Ion Tail Cannons!!! (by OmegaLogos posted on 5-4-2011 @ 03:57 PM) [ATS]

In that linked thread I clearly lay out that if Comet Elenin is a Comet then the Earth becomes a target for the ionized gas tail between the 20th and 30th of September and that full alignment happens on the 27th.

I predict the following for the period of Sept 20th to Sept 30th 2011...

Massive Geomagnetic Storms as a result of prolonged and widespread Ionospheric heating caused by Comet Elenin's ionized gas tail.

These storms will have the following effects...

Increased chance of Aurora's and increased display + duration of the Aurora's. [beyond the expected norm]

Increased chance of interferrence with radio and radiowave reliant technology [radar etc].

Increased frequency and power of thunderstorms. [beyond the expected norm].

Increased chance of power outages and blackouts. [beyond the expected norm]

So here we go.
