I just thought I'd drop back by on my way off for the night to add something to consider in all this.
We base the idea that nothing can happen on the fact that nothing HAS happened in our living memory or, for the most part, recorded history to support
the idea that it WILL happen. Yet more than one indicator from history in mid and deep deep past terms seem to suggest a reason for concern. Now there
is only ...only..... one place and one place err.. only... that such a thing could come from, given the time periods involved. Space. Nowhere else.
Nothing on Earth stays static over such lengths.
Now we can also say that we have instruments and satellites and plenty to know such a thing can't be possible.....but you know... It's a big big
sky. It's a REAAALLY big sky. To illustrate that, I'd note just one link.
NASA Near Earth Object Index
None of those objects is going to hit Earth. I don't suggest anything listed there will...or even anything we KNOW about. That is the problem though
and why I can never write this off entirely. Not until about Christmas will I feel better about it being past tense. The NUMBERS on those objects are
not the date LAST seen.....or the number someone arbitrarily slapped on them for the fun of it. Those are numbered by the date they were DISCOVERED.
Now that's a WHOLE LOT of objects passing by us that we didn't even know existed a few months, a year or a couple years ago.
What else might there be that we know isn't there......simply because we don't know it's there yet? It's that nagging little doubt mixed with the
tangible feeling of...something. We'll all laugh on X-Mas Morning. hows that?
