If you've read Camping as to how he got his date, there literally were no rhymes or reasons to his prediction. Elenin, on the other hand...
It just seems strange to me where a random prediction gets so much attention on ATS, whereas you have a physicist who proved that celestial alignments
can cause earthquakes, yet no one's talking about it. I don't even think people have shown where the name Elenin comes from either. The guy's name was
"Yelenin," not Elenin.
Incidentally, this is what the Hopi prophecies predict:
"This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana men who took the land that
was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder.
"This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his youth, my father saw this prophecy come
true with his eyes -- the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies."
"This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather
saw with his eyes -- the coming of the white men's cattle."
"This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron."(the train tracks)
"This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider's web."(internet?)
"This is the Sixth sign: The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun."(highways and freeways?)
"This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it."(I think this can be taken
"This is the Eight Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways
"And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It
will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.
I've been wondering what the 8th sign is, then I read the post about the protests in Egypt and Spain, and someone noticed that most of the protesters
are college students, so perhaps that is it.
The 9th sign could very well be Elenin. Notice that both the Mayans and Hopis are predicting a coming celestial body.
Finally, I believe that Nostradamus predicted that there will be a couple of false prophets, before the arrival of the Anti-Christ, so maybe Harold
Camping is just trying to play out that role
Although one should not rule out that he is under a psy-op operation, just so that the next prediction comes, people won't believe it
