I'd like to add a more simple possibility.
A giant rock from outer space explodes on or over Rome. Catholics would like to name such an event, much the same way we name massive storms. The city
of seven hills would be destroyed.
Peter obviously means rock Latin. The biblical Peter gets his name because Jesus left his mission to carry his church to Peter, the rock.
If he left his church to Peter, would it not be Peter, the rock, who ultimately destroys it upon the 2nd coming of Jesus, ie Judgement Day and the
rise of the Anti-Christ. Only instead of a symbolic reference it would be quite literal.
This would also explain why Peter Romanus isn't classified as an actual Pope in the Prophecy of the Popes. Peter Romanus wouldn't even be human. Just
a giant rock plummeting from the heavens.
On a side note:
While others say space rocks explode all over the Earth everyday, while certain aspects of that statement are true it's also not true in our recent
event. The meteorite over Russia was a 100 year event. That hardly happens everyday.
Satellite Imagery Shows Russian Meteorite Was 100 Year Event
I'd like to tie this in with, wait for it... the Mayan calendar.
While the Mayan calendar marks months and years, we all know it also marked something similar to what might be referred to as an age. What if this age
wasn't just a made up number, but also dealt with another celestial event. I know, I know, not this again, but read this out.
It has been posited that all celestial bodies are in motion. So even our sun has an elliptical. What if the Mayan calendar is based on the Sun's
elliptical and we just celebrated a full rotation of the Sun's elliptical? How would they know when that occurs? There would have to be a systemic
event that occurs every few thousand years to mark it. Something that tells us where in the vastness of space we are in the elliptical. A debris field
would do just that. A debris field traveling it's own elliptical, that every few thousand years we pass through. Because it's not stationary (nothing
is) the actual date would fluctuate by days, months, or even by a few years. But a marker of that time could be estimated, especially if it were
chiseled into rock by people who knew the language of the society thousands of years before them.
I mean come one, if in the week of December 21st we had a meteor explode in the atmosphere over Russia with the force of an atomic bomb, a pope
decide, for the first time in 600 years, to say "you know what eff this, I'm out yo", and multiple fantastic displays of giant rocks burning up in
shallow atmosphere (most "shooting stars" are deep atmosphere events, while recent ones have been brilliantly shallow) all over the Earth we'd be
saying they were right. I think being less than 60 days off over a few thousand years while estimating for a moving target is just as brilliant as
getting it spot on. No one knows for sure that they meant December 21st exactly, maybe they were just marking the new year as the time of the event,
not the new day.
This can not be argued: according to the Mayan calendar we've entered a new time period of some kind. This can be argued but I think is valid: Just
like every other time period on a calendar it's more than likely marked by a celestial event of some kind. They based their days, months, and years
just like we do, but they also marked something we don't...what was their inspiration?
Just like us they marked time periods based on celestial events. A day is based on the Earth's rotation around its axis. A month is based on the
moon's elliptical around Earth. A year is based on Earth's elliptical around the sun. A Mayan age is based on??? My answer is the Sun's elliptical
around something we don't know, but we can mark a full rotation by a another celestial event: passing through a debris field. How large of a debris
field (width) and how dense the debris filling it gets is what we may be finding out right now. Odds are if the Earth does pass through a systemic
field it'll start with a light shower that grows more dense toward the center of the field with larger rocks towards the center and end much as it
started. It could last a day it could go on for years, it all depends on how large of a debris field it is. And one of the rocks in the field may
already have a name this "go round": The Rock of Rome: Petra Romanus
