All i can say is IF it happens, i'd simply want to know so that i don't leave my wife and children wondering and worried or panicked in their final hours..

Imagine being stuck in traffic trying to get to your kids stuck in daycare while they are scrambling for their own families as the news erupts about our imminent demises.. That would be a fear worse than death for meanyways.

Could we use a system that emanates out like eccho location and catch new NEOs that way? How do we look for objects?

Would it be held with stronger consideration if Stephen Hawking said this?

Didn't we miss an asteroid a few years ago in Russia, the same day another asteroid was to pass by Earth? We missed it because it came from the opposite direction.

I predict that nothing will happen, and i have about as much credibility as any of the other fear mongers on the net.

We all could die at any time.

Why try and put a date on it when no-one really knows?

It would be different if there was actually a reason to expect a meteor, but this is just wild speculation based upon someone's opinion about the date being significant.

Significant dates keep rolling by.

After a 25 year stint of living in DC that straddled my teen years...I can honestly say this.

I took solace in the knowledge that if a nuclear war would start, I wouldn't have to worry about it.

I along with everyone else, would be beautifully clear glass.

So, truthfully...if a celestial event happens....I'm good with it. Especially if it is a quick and decisive event. The idea of living through a nuclear winter as a not something I'd wish on anyone.

If it's not asteroids or comets it's the climate.

If it's not the climate it's terrorists.

If it's not the terrorists it' Yellow Stone.

If it's not Yellow Stone it's the politicians.

If it's not the politicians it's gun violence.

If it's not that there is ALWAYS something else.

The most dangerous rocks come from the direction of the Sun. They cannot be detected easily until it is too late.
Chelyabinsk was one such as this. It would have been most likely detected if it came from any other direction.

Nu uh... You're not an "expert"

When said "expert" is wrong, are we allowed to strip them of their "expert" tagline?

I'm not sure why you're asking this, as your comment in response to mine makes no sense.

If you're asking as to whether or not if Dr. Hawking were to say things the same way that Professor Walsh did - if that'd be any different. No. Why would it? As I said, he did not and does not explicitly say that there's any greater of a risk than usual. I would believe that Dr. Hawking would say the same.

So again, I'm not sure I understand the relevance of your question.

Dang, I do hope they're wrong because I'm leaving for vacation on the 23rd and I'll be really disappointed if my first vacation in two years goes sideways. Only consolation is that I'll be in the mountains that day but headed for the beach. I'm thinking if this thing hits in the Atlantic, I'll not be seeing Charleston again. Nope, I'm not canceling any of my reservations!

I'm new, this seems like a nice place to debate. Is there anything I need to know about this site?

How are the Mods?

Are the Posters cool or....?

Not even close. Of course, nobody saw the Russian meteor coming…

Thing is a planet killer with our name on it would have been picked up on by a plethora of "experts" by now.

You recon? that's a lot of sky to watch to detect literally less than a grain of sand at this point, you think the whole field of view is being covered by these professionals and amateurs? seriously? and what makes you think their telescopes are focused on Mr Rogue, i would imagine they are looking at prettier things or is it, wait, i'll focus on nothing to see what i catch?

I take every "expert" opinion with a grain of salt.

There is a very real agenda at hand to discredit and derail every conspiracy theory or opinion on coverup or corruption that is exposed by the vlogosphere. That alone is enough to give me pause. The louder the alternative view crowd screams about " something wicked this way comes" the louder the opposition screams that everything is fine.

In the end, if you care enough to search, you know something isn't right about the present state of play. Feelings are messy things, and acting on them among a crowd that of people who only operate on " fact or proof or pics or it didn't happen" is an exercise in futility.

Honestly I don't know what to believe any longer, but who ever truly knew to begin with?

I have seen things happen here on ATS very recently that lead me to believe that it is becoming just as obfuscated as MSM. We can't even point out the flaws in a breaking story without having it shut down "out of respect for the victims families". It's sad really.

Somehow the motto of Deny Ignorance has led us down a very dangerous path where we cannot Embrace Intuition without being ostracized or insulted to a point of non contribution.

I don't think we are going to be hit by some asteroid, but I do feel that we will be impacted by something with the same metaphorical gravity, and soon.

Maybe NASA let slip an image our impending doom? I mean, how can they confuse the sun with the moon?

I know they say we have near misses all the time and lots of actual ones that penetrate our atmosphere. I can only speak for my general knowledge but it does seem like our planet is falling more inline to be susceptible to direct hits from rouge space rocks. Could be just me, from my understanding the meteor belt is the direct result of a planet collision and my theory if there was a Planet X that may have been it. Planets just don't collide bust into billions of pieces and continue on there way for another 3600 years that orbit ended the day it met it's brick wall. So there's many possibilities and one thing there's so many lights in populated areas it's hard to even see the stars let alone a dark ball of death. So end thought will they ever tell us the truth about anything that does not suite there needs, probably not. To solve the problem we must not all focus our minds in complete opposite sides of the problem we need to focus on the solid knowledge that has been presented work together as a whole from all across the country as one to fix our government then when we get the crooks out we will find the answers to all of earths mysteries that one could ever imagine. With all the people of this country we can do something they just keep us occupied like rats on a wheel chasing the cheese.

Well, i guess it is a matter of when, and not if. for all the nay sayers out there though, wouldn't it be a major cluster # if it did occur in the last week of September '15 ? what would be the scenario then........

posted on Sep, 18 2015 @ 06:22 AM
Well NASA didn't warn us about the 2013 Russia meteor. People say they didn't see it because it was comin from the suns direction. But I don't trust NASA anyway.

Where there is smoke, there is fire.I would not believe in any potential impact if it wasn't for that article. That kinda changed the game for me doesn't mean any impact is guaranteed.
Next days will be interesting for sure. I think there is also potential for a second big Earthquake.

just be aware.
