Not just because this in a conspiracy site, but...

An increase in meteors and an increase in UFO sitings... Coincidence? Better information sharing?

Not sure why you are perplexed, but according to the Vatican the observatory is used to explore God's handiwork.


From the observatory FAQ:


Why is the Vatican interested in astronomy?
Initially it was for a practical reason, to reform the Julian Calendar, like so many national observatories that were started, e.g., to improve navigation at sea; later at the establishment of the present form of the Vatican Observatory in 1891, for an apologetic purpose, in the sense of defending the Catholic Church's positive regard for science; now to join in doing good science in a way that is possible, given the Vatican's other concerns, as part of the consequence that the Incarnation of Christ applies to all human activity.

Apologetic purpose??

Sorry, I thought that religion and science were like fire and water.

That if you believed in the Bible, there would be no need for science.

I have my own views, but this is not the proper place.

The Church has an interest in knowing what goes on as "science" can only explain the "how" or "what" happens. What Scripture there is doesn't delve too deeply into that, does it? Is it an assembly manual for the Universe?

Someone can tell me that two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen can combine to create water and that so many of life's processes require that molecule for function; no one can tell "why" without diverting to "this is how the elements and chemicals work". No one can state "why" things have to be the way they are.

Correlation does not equal causation. The "why" things are as they are, at least for now, lies in the realms of philosophy and religion. And I'm often reminded that intelligent decisions do not always require conscious thought.

Now, how this got so far off topic is a little bewildering.

We cannot forget that our solar system entered a part of our Galaxy that happens to share space with a kind of galactic cloud??

I can find many sourcing NASA but have not found the direct nasa link itself. I find it odd how many reports from NASA are frequently only available for a limited time and then just disappear, as if they did not have the bandwidth to keep all pages up. Its whatever though I remember reading it, and an increase in space rocks is what I always figured would occur, and is exactly what I am observing as of late.

The weather has been behaving a little different too, like the clouds in my local skies have really been curious lately.

I live in Las Vegas and was at a friends house tonight along with my brothers family-and the kids were outside playing when they all came running in "a meteor a meteor-we saw a meteor-it was red"- I walk outside- and see nothing-nobody saw anything- but I believed them(not sure if everyone else did or not).

Sure enough- I log onto ATS and heres a story about a meteor.

Was it the same one though? The one in the pic looks blue- they said red.
Possibly more than one? Or were they just confused in the excitement maybe?

and that chart of meteors is scary- but even worse- is the "explanation" after it- or should I say "BS excuses"?
Sounds like it was written by a govt figure head trying to prevent panic. Didnt do a very good job at keeping the attention away from the "we are all going to die"- thoughts.

The only interest of the Vatican is Wormwood described in Revelation. They are terrified that this cosmic object is on its way. The VATT scope is very advanced, very expensive, and very private.

So, you think the Vatican has a closed mind with regards to science? Your mind is more closed than theirs.

Anyhow, do you think you can keep the discussion on topic? If you want to start a topic about the Vatican and other crap, feel free, but that's not the topic of this thread.

I don't smoke in my house I smoke on the porch. I've seen more meteors this summer then I've ever seen in the past 10 years combined.

Thanks

They always use photos already on file. They shouldn't be included in the OP, but I haven't read the whole thread yet to see if that was corrected.

Seems like those UFOs are working extra hard these days protecting us from these meteors. They are the heroes we need, but don't deserve.

On a serious note, at this point I think we've passed the point of all these meteors being mere coincidences. Are we traveling through a meteor cloud, or perhaps changing magnetic fields of celestial bodies in our neighborhood is attracting meteors. Either way we have to stay vigilant at this point and carefully observe the sky and prepare as necessary.


I saw one last week. It's the second one I've seen this year.

Yes you put "may have".
I didn't recognize it as one of your threads with those words

Draw your own conclusions about what I said. I find yours ridiculous. Meteor sightings have increased dramatically over the past few years and they may be forerunners of larger objects coming our way, including the object mentioned in the bible. I don't consider a body supposed to look after our spiritual needs wastes so much of the money it collects from the faithful in looking for this mythical object. What is YOUR topic here because I can't find it. If you want to contribute, then say something relevant.

Translation from google translate:


Said Jewel FM radio that a large space meteorite has just landed in the south of Tunisia specifically in a desert area depopulated in Remada COR of the mandate of Tataouine and had heard a huge 3 loud explosions in the area.

This moved on the spot and units of the National Guard and the military to investigate and preview the meteor as confirmed by Maral Jewel FM




That is translated from this secondary link:

Good point on the UFOs haha! And this - mind you - if Chelyabinsk taught me anything, it's to not observe from behind a window

I was in Portugal all last week on holiday, and was surprised to see a couple of shooting stars each night, before that holiday i had only ever witnessed one.

Great find TA. I suspect some real pictures of it may come out later on. Just because someone puts a nonrelated picture on the news to promote their news, doesn't mean the event is not real. The news here does that all the time. I guess it is standard policy.

I got my picture taken from afar many years ago unloading my truck at the landfill and that picture was used for anything regarding the landfill for a year. I have seen pictures used for years over and over for similar events.

I personally think that the number of larger meteors has increased the last few years. I think there is more movement of the rocks around the solar system. If you add energy to a closed system, it excites the system. Energy can be added by more than one source. Maybe all the comets hitting the sun is adding energy. Maybe the solar system is gaining energy through increased intergallactic energy. It doesn't matter how it is gaining energy, it is the added energy that matters. This can possibly cause meteors orbits to respond or for small meteors to gain enough energy to pop out of orbit by hitting each other. There could be a million possibilities why the incidences seem to be increasing. I guess they are reviewing all the information to figure if they are really increasing. I suppose that information will be released this fall sometimes.
