I've heard of people believing that Elenin may smack into us, or a second comet that follows it (name escapes me) will be pulled into earth on it's flyby shortly after by Elenin/Earth combo altering it's path, or that we will smack right into Elenin's debris field. All of which I have also heard as fear mongering lies.
This is the first I've heard of such heavens gate like beliefs about the comet. Might you have a source for this?
