I think Bob Dean said 2017 was the year to keep an eye on, so you might be onto something. Maybe we are all focusing on the wrong thing. Interesting thought. As to whether we are doomed, that all depends on the size of the comet. We may be able to blow it up before it hits us. But this is assuming it will be on a direct collision course with Earth, which I doubt.
are we doomed when 2017 rolls around? To be honest when I discovered it I was pretty shooken and still am.
