I saw your edited post so I had to comment, good one on posting that contradiction.. but I refuse to hold someones hand when they make claims like the member of the post above me. Just like an alcoholic, if they want to see the light or "moment of clearity" they will.. but I can't choose for them.

Probably one of them best responses I've ever gotten!
thank you.. but yeap watch NASA make a liar out of me and 404 everything
You're right.. I could hold the smoking gun in front of someone and it won't change their mind. I just can't wait for 2013.. that will be a great year, and I will be glowing with an 'I told ya so' attitude all year.

Don't you know though, that 2013 will be the new 2012???


I think the *real* conspiracy is to see how many people we can get to commit suicide based on all this drivel and nonsense.

I stand corrected (actually I sit corrected)... 2 of the best responses I've ever gotten
Well if that's the truth... well.. then.. YEA ELENIN THEORY EXISTS, IT IS DEFINENTLY EXTINCTION LEVEL, RUN, HIDE!!!

This guy might be the first to go, he's giving daily updates on the comet and says it's 16 times the size of Jupiter , he wants everybody to start making preparations, his latest claim last night was that as mercury went behind the sun, out of our view it was in a collision and is now completely destroyed, he has all soho and jpl viewers to prove it. Its definitely worth watching one of his vids!

You're exactly right. Just look at all those times in the past century alone where people claimed we were going to be killed by some celestial object, the government denied it, and then all life was wiped out. I know I've been killed by asteroids, comets, etc. dozens of times.

Please provide a link! I would really, truly love to slam my head into my keyboard again.. I'm going for a concussion this time. Maybe if I slam my head hard enough I will put myself into a coma so I don't have all these believers subjecting me to ignorance.

Now I know NASA is lying. The article states:

Now NASA is stressing the simple truth: Comet Elenin is just an icy comet — and a wimpy one at that

This is a lie. I don't know if NASA made the statement or whether the author of the article did but this is NOT true. Comets are electromagnetic in nature and are NOT icy rocks. NASA has known this for years. Even several weeks ago I stumbled on a NASA article discussing something about Elenin. The text in the article showed that they knew Elenin was not an icy rock. Unfortunately I do not know the URL of the NASA article nor do I remember the text I used in the search which caused me to find it.

The reason Elenin is getting so much attention is because of conspiracy theorists. Every day astronomers the world over are getting emails asking if its going to kill us all. Leonid Elenin has gotten so many he has posted multiple articles reassuring people that it is just a normal comet. The reason Elenin is getting so much attention by the media is because fearmongers are drawing attention to it and as a result scientists and the media are getting inundated with emails regarding it. I also would like to point out the hypocrisy regarding this comet. When it was first discovered conspiracy theorists were complaining that since it was getting no coverage the government must be trying to cover it up. Now that its getting coverage conspiracy theorists are claiming that since this is getting so much attention it must be important. Would someone care to tell me how much coverage this comet should be getting to make people stop complaining about the media coverage of it?

Welcome to the world of the conspiracy theorist. This has been analysed and basically the conspiracist modifies the "theory" to encompass the latest information that contradicts the conspiracy. It will certainly be interesting to see the defense of the above change. A conspiracist NEVER admits to being wrong irrespective of any evidence. It will be hilarious to hear the conspiracies after Elenin passes us by without incident.

Don't expect a reply that makes sense but certainly sit back and enjoy the show!

Oh and I am now an Elenin sheepie for having the audacity to pour scorn over the conspiracy.

NASA is lying.....along with Elenin himself.....along with thousands and thousands of astronomers worldwide whereas the interpretation of NASA data (ironically) by the amateur armchair conspiracist is the ONLY truth.

I am curious about whether you have any scientific knowledge of thermodynamics. I believe you are saying you believe the dirty snowball theory. If you are so knowledgeable, please explain how ice can exist in space as far in as Mercury's orbit. Keep in mind that the temperature at which ice melts and water boils decreases as pressure decreases. Space is virtually a vacuum. Also sunlight, by itself, even when the temperature and pressure are favorable to keeping water frozen will cause ice to become a gas. This commonly happens on sunny winter days when snow is on the ground. How would a icy ball of dirt retain its integrity or any water at all as it passes the sun at that distance. That is enough information by itself to dispute the dirty snowball theory of comets.

NASA's statement is a specific statement which cannot be true since it does not match scientific facts. It would be more productive if you could provide proof that the dirty snowball theory is true which is not possible. You probably also believe Iraq had and obviously still has weapons of mass destruction. Your government always tells the truth and is honest.

Comets are electromagnetic in nature and are NOT icy rocks. NASA has known this for years.

Interesting. Electromagnetic in nature. Hmmm. Here is what my sources say:

A comet is an icy, small Solar System body which, when close enough to the Sun, displays a visible coma (a thin, fuzzy, temporary atmosphere) and sometimes also a tail. These phenomena are both due to the effects of solar radiation and the solar wind upon the nucleus of the comet. Comet nuclei range from a few hundred meters to tens of kilometers across and are composed of loose collections of ice, dust, and small rocky particles. Comets have been observed since ancient times and have traditionally been considered bad omens.
Source 1

Comets are cosmic snowballs of frozen gases, rock and dust roughly the size of a small town. When a comet's orbit brings it close to the sun, it heats up and spews dust and gases into a giant glowing head larger than most planets. The dust and gases form a tail that stretches away from the sun for millions of kilometers.
Source 2

As stated earlier, a comet is basically a ball of ice and dust. The typical comet is less than 10 kilometers across. Most of their time is spent frozen solid in the outer reaches of our solar system. The graphic below shows all of the components of a comet. At the stage being discussed at this point, the comet is nothing more than the nucleus. Except for a few suspected dead comets, and a couple of suspicious asteroids that occasionally show gas emissions like a comet, the nucleus is never really seen from Earth. By the time a comet becomes bright enough to be seen from our planet, it is usually exhibiting a coma.
Source 3

Despite their name, many comets do not develop tails. Moreover, comets are not surrounded by nebulosity during most of their lifetime. The only permanent feature of a comet is its nucleus, which is a small body that may be seen as a stellar image in large telescopes when tail and nebulosity do not exist, particularly when the comet is still far away from the Sun. Two characteristics differentiate the cometary nucleus from a very small asteroid—namely, its orbit and its chemical nature. A comet’s orbit is more eccentric; therefore, its distance to the Sun varies considerably. Its material is more volatile. When far from the Sun, however, a comet remains in its pristine state for eons without losing any volatile components because of the deep cold of space. For this reason, astronomers believe that pristine cometary nuclei may represent the oldest and best-preserved material in the solar system.
Source 4

I've presented my evidence. Where is yours?

Astronomers know that comets aren't just dirty snowballs. However, this is still what the public considers them to be and since this article was directed towards the layperson there is no point to go off-topic and explain that comets are rocky with ice and frozen gases contained within it.

You are making the assumption that *all* ice is water based.

So you posted a quote from an article (without a link none the less) in which you have no idea who stated it between NASA or the author, and this is your "proof" of knowing that NASA is lieing about Elenin? Wow I think i'm confused by your post. If my mind translated that correctly then that is truly the most feeble arguement I've seen in a while. Please provide a link to the NASA statement you're talking about.. you know the drill.. no link, it didn't happen. Also, a comet is composed of loose collections of dust, ice, and rocky particles with a nucleus.. no where near electromagnetic did you just make that up?

A typical orbit at this distance from the sun would maybe mean it loses 60,000,000 grams of water a second.

On a comet 5km nucleus that would equate to a loss of 0.2m on surrface area. Not as much as you think.

Tom and Jerry disputed this in Season 1, Episode 9

Spaced Out Cat: While in the park, Tom sees Toodles Galore. Suddenly, Spike (dressed up in a repo-man mustache and tank tops) shows up on a motorcycle. He steals Tom's girlfriend. Tom (now upset) walks home (where Jerry is). He turns on the radio and finds out that there is a contest going on. Whoever can build a rocket and reach the moon first wins. Tom thinks he can get his girlfriend back by doing this. Jerry gets on board with Tom and the ship malfunctions. It crashlands on the moon. Tom puts up a flag and Jerry eats parts of the moon (thinking its cheese). Spike runs over Tom's flag with his motorcycle and puts up his flag. Tom and Toodles kiss.

They said this months ago.
So did Foxnews, cnn msnbc experts.

So did 99% of respectable scientist around ths world.
All said it was no threat.

The problem is that the uneducated are gullible and stupid, the cultists on this site want something bad to happen.
Some believe aliens are following this comet, sounds familiar?

Basically it will fall on death ears, and I wont be surprised that once it passes and the world begins to point and laugh at some of these folk, these cultist will find another date and scientist name.
