I will start off by saying I absolutely do not buy into the end of the world is quickly approaching theory. However, for the sake of this thread, lets
say a meteorite is heading towards Earth and contact is immanent.
I was talking to my father the other day and he said something from space threatening Earth is a huge fear of the most powerful countries on Earth. I
questioned him asking why. It was a very light hearted conversation, but my dad jokingly answered is a huge fear because the most powerful militaries
would have to start unveiling their secrets. He then said, "you know some country, even if it isn't ours, has some kind of Death Star laser that
would be able to shoot sh*t out of space." Now that was the end of our conversation, but it definitely got me thinking.
Now I don't believe there is some Star Wars type "Death Star" floating around in space waiting to shoot meteors out of the sky. And even if there
is, I don't believe it was used to bring down the Twin Towers as some do. BUT, if the end was coming do you think world powers would ban together
with their technologies? The U.S. Navy already has lasers on some of their ships. Do you think somewhere out there there is a weapon on a larger scale
that could be used to save all countries? And if you do believe it is out there, do you think it would actually be revealed?
After some thinking, the conclusion I have drawn is that I believe many countries have weapons that their citizens and other countries have no idea
about. If a weapon could save Earth, I certainly believe it would be used, but not talked about. I think it would just happen and then the story would
be reported about how the meteor was mysteriously broken up in atmosphere or something like that, but of course there would be a conspiracy about how
it wasn't possible.
That is just my crazy mind wondering though, what about you ATS
