Don't be scared, cause I'm not. Some say Jesus will be making his arrival shortly after this date, to those who are chosen to survive.....

Toutatis on Sept. 29 will be too close for comfort. This is not like it's an Aussie Bloke thing where there was no real evidence. The evidence here points to an object that is very erratic, meaning it can deviate slightly from its predicted course. I've read an article where, between the lines, I got the impression that the scientists were saying there is a chance that this could impact Earth. Of course, they did not admit that little statement because of the potential reaction around the world.
Because the Illuminati are very fond with number games, such as 9/11, there is a prediction that another terrorist attack will occur on Sept. 27, which is approximately 2 days before Toutatis nears Earth. Maybe this predicted terror attack will be used to take people's attention away from the danger that Toutatis presents.
We will never know for sure right now if Toutatis will strike or not. But, Toutatis is a real danger because of the proximity, its erratic nature, and the devastation it can cause if it impacts Earth. We do know that it is going to be very close and visible with Binoculars.

On Sept 29th it will come less than 963,000 miles close
This is from NASA aswell i think they know what they are talking about.
According to NASA on September 29, 2004 a large and potentially hazardous asteroid called Toutatis 4179 will come very close to planet Earth.
Facts from NASA:
·Toutatis is about 3 miles long, 1.5 miles wide
·Discovered in 1989, it nears earth every 3.98 years
·It has a very strange shape, rotation and orbit
·On Sept 29th it will come less than 963,000 miles close
·963,000 miles is considered a very near miss
·It orbits into the main asteroid belt between Mars & Jupiter
·Earth, Mars & Jupiter's gravity affects its orbital path
·It will slow down crossing near Earth at about 24,000 m.p.h.
·It will be very bright, visible even with binoculars
·Officially, NASA gives a zero chance of impact
·A collision would kill most all life forms on Earth

The Sep. 29, 2004, approach is the closest in this century of any known asteroid at least as large as Toutatis (or more precisely, of any known asteroid with an absolute magnitude as small as H = 15.30). Click here for close-approach tables.
There ya go from NASA themselves!

Alright. This is getting old. Christians, please make a mental note RIGHT NOW to read your bibles again.
It is written
"I will come like a thief in the night" and "none shall know when it will happen, it cannot be predicted"
Therefore, if it is predicted, it will not happen because the prediction would prove that the Christian God is falible. Why is it that so many say Jesus is allowing the apocolypse and this is when it will happen? By saying this, you are pushing the date back. I have heard many a pastor or priest say it will be within the next 50 to 100 years.
Guess what. Now that it is predicted, it CAN'T happen in the next hundred years, or your god is fake.
So any "true, God fear, real Christian" would NEVER try to predict armageddon.

I find that to be a VERY revealing quote; one that suggests the one thing we happen to be talking about, a near earth asteroid.
As for this discussion's topic, I think it's a VERY distinct possibility that this asteroid COULD hit earth, although I'm not entirely convinced that it will destroy everything on the planet, as the supposed 6 mile wide one that supposedly destroyed the dinosaurs didn't destroy the planet,...
Imagine: NASA scientists announce they have detected a 10-mile-wide asteroid on a collision course with the Earth. They calculate it will hit Southeast Asia in two weeks. There is no chance of Bruce Willis being sent on a beefed-up space shuttle to blow up the asteroid. Earthlings will have to ride out the impact.
The world economy grinds to a halt as people take to the hills. Anarchy sets in, civilization breaks down. Accusations fly over the lack of warning -- where was Spaceguard, the proposed international search effort for large asteroids?
People in Brazil feel less vulnerable than most of the world's population. They are on the opposite side of the Earth from the predicted impact point. But one hour after the impact Brazilians notice some brilliant meteors. Then more meteors. Soon the sky gets brighter and hotter from the overwhelming number of meteors. Within a few minutes trees ignite from the fierce radiant heat. Millions of fragments of rock, ejected into space by the blast, are making a fiery return all over the planet.
Only people hiding underground survive the deadly fireworks display. Within three hours, however, massive shock waves from the impact travel through the Earth's crust and converge on Brazil at the same time. The ground shakes so violently that the ground fractures and molten rock spews from deep underground. Maybe Brazil wasn't the best place to be after all.
The survivors of the firestorms, tsunami and massive earthquakes emerge to a devastated landscape. Within a few days the Sun vanishes behind a dark thick cloud -- a combination of soot from the firestorms, dust thrown up by the impact and a toxic smog from chemical reactions. Photosynthesis in plants and algae ceases and temperatures plummet. A long, sunless Arctic winter seems mild compared to the new conditions on most of the planet.
After a year or so the dust settles and sunlight begins to filter through the clouds. The Earth's surface starts warming up. But the elevated carbon dioxide levels created by the fires (and, by chance, vaporization of huge quantities of limestone at the impact site) results in a runway greenhouse effect. Those creatures that managed to survive the deep freeze now have to cope with being cooked.
The debate continues on whether the Chicxulub impact caused the mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous Period or whether it was one of a sequence of disasters. The Deccan Traps of India are the remnants of a massive upwelling of molten rock from deep within the Earth 65 million years ago. The toxic fumes and dust from the eruption have been put forward as a possible alternative cause of climate change that led to the extinction of the dinosaurs.
A possible link between impacts and volcanism became evident in 1974 when the Mariner 10 spacecraft flew past the innermost planet Mercury. The planet was found to be covered with impact craters like the moon. One giant impact crater on Mercury was particularly interesting. Directly opposite the impact point, on the other side of the planet (called the "antipodal point") was a region of highly disrupted terrain with no evidence of an impact. The shock waves from the impact on one side of Mercury had traveled around the surface and met simultaneously at the antipodal point to create the chaotic features. Similar features have since been detected on several moons of the giant planets.
Astronomer Duncan Steel has suggested that the same occurred with the Chicxulub impact and that the shock waves caused the Deccan Traps. Taking into account millions of years of continental drift, this region would have been at the antipodal point to Mexico at the time of the impact. Although the eruption may have contributed to the suffering, it now seems more likely that the Deccan Traps were just a consequence of the catastrophic initial event, the Chicxulub impact.

No kidding... besides, there was an asteroid (2004 FU162) that skimmed a mere 6,500 meters above earth on March 31st. They didn't even know about it until after the fact.
Sept 29th will be like Aug 12th, 19th, 22nd... did I miss any??
