Druscilla, I know your somewhat of a noob & all, but your constant condescending attitude in, well, practically every thread you post in, gets
extremely tiresome. We are here to kick theories around, listen to what posters have to say or post, and discuss it. What is your agenda?
Geez, I didn't even get to watch the whole video yet. From what I gather so far, I imagine it can be plausible....Looking forward to hearing what more
experienced posters in the field have to say.....
While any opinion you present regarding the nature of the topic may or may not hold some water of validity according the subject under discussion,
anything you have to say regarding personalities such as my self, and your opinions of them has zero weight and validity regarding said topic of
In other words, it doesn't matter what you think of me, or anyone else, nor how they present their own opinions regarding a subject.
As to the subject, lets look at some of the items detailed.
1. The video claims there's contact with some extraterrestrial intelligence that results in a 331 day turn-around in communication.
This is close to a year, so, for a signal to reach the point of communication, and illicit a reply that is then received in a time frame of 331 days,
the contact point would necessarily need be located less than one light year distant.
Would you like to inform the rest of us what the closes extra solar body to Earth is?
How about I do it: Alpha Centauri, or Rigel Kent
Proxima is at the slightly smaller distance of 1.29 parsecs or 4.24 light years from the Sun, making it the closest star to the Sun, even though
it is not visible to the naked eye.
4.24 light years. For a message to travel that distance just one way would require a time of 4.24 years, or 1,547.6 days, far far longer than the 331
days detailed in the OP video.
To send AND receive a message would require at the very least 3,095.2 days, almost 10x longer than the 331 day turn around put forward in the OP
Now, the farthest comets way out in the Oort Cloud are about 1.58 light-years away, so, there's a small plausibility that some alien species has set
up a communications/observations platform between the Kuiper belt which terminates around 14 light-hours out, and the Oort Cloud which begins around
290 light- days out extending to 1.58 light years as mentioned.
Considering that we've not detected anything between the Kuiper Belt and the Oort Cloud, it's likely highly improbable that we're getting any signals
from such 'near' space proximity.
2. Earth Changes
As described before, please take a look at RSOE EDIS
and scroll down to the Earthquakes section.
Every single day there's dozens of earthquakes.
Any would-be prophet could capitalize on this extremely predictable occurrence by forecasting an earthquake of at least a 4.0 magnitude for any day of
any week, of any year for the next thousand years or more.
A riskier bet would be to claim something of a greater magnitude during any time frame, say the first week of the coming September, but, in keeping
the prediction loose and locality of the prophesied event intentionally vague, probabilities for a 6 .0- 7.0 earthquake indeed happening some time in
the first week of September, somewhere on the planet are really actually quite good.
In the case of the OP video, we have the prediction of a magnetic pole shift with the Van Allen belts completely collapsing.
This, of course is complete fantasy. We've certainly geological data indicating magnetic pole shifts, but, no indication on record regarding the
complete collapse of the Van Allen Belts. Earth's magnetic field would have to completely disappear for that to happen. A magnetic polar shift
simply a change in magnetic polar position, not the collapse of the entire magnetic field.
It's equivalent to flipping a magnet sitting on a table from one side to the other. The magnetism doesn't go away, though the polar positions have
Now in citing earthquakes and polar shift, this elevates a gullible person's awareness of their geological environment as it pertains to earth changes
going on in our geologically active planet. Considering that most people didn't pay as much attention to their classes in Geology and Earth Sciences
in University, if they attended University at all, this heightened awareness, and ignorance that the Earth experiences hundreds and thousands of
tremors and earthquakes a year would seem, to the gullible and under-educated, that, oh-my, earthquakes are happening 'more frequently(!!!)', when in
fact, the earth is just carrying on with what it's been doing since the entire geological history and existence of the planet.
Increased awareness then seems to validate the prophecy when nothing abnormal is happening.
