Not only that but I agree with almost everything that Anybody has said here.  It's all valid points. You have to look at the overall picture though.  I am not a Bible thumper BUT Armegeddon IS coming.  YOU Watch. I ain't lyin.

Got any actual proof of this beyond the raving ramblings of snake handlers and scare tactics politicians?

Because, frankly, I ain't seeing it.

The only people who believe this crap and try to make you believe it too are those who want to be self-important and all-powerful.  Besides, if they're right, they're going to hell due to all the civil and human rights abuses they condone, not to mention defiling the environment, et al.

Basically, if you are trying to help Armageddon along, YOU are part of the problem, not the solution.

Actually there is proof that the Apocalypse is coming...
It has been found that there is an asteroid will pass 1/6 the distance from the earth to the moon. It is supposed to happen on Friday, April 13, 2029. There is a 99.99% Chance that it will pass and not strike the Earth, but there is a 0.01% Chance it will change it's path and strike the Earth.
I'm not kidding it's scientific fact.
Th damage would be like this:
the catastrophic effects of a 2-kilometer-long asteroid hitting just off the coast of Los Angeles for example:
The blast annihilates not just Los Angeles, but communities within 100 miles of the coast. A firestorm consumes much of southern California and tsunamis wreak havoc up and down the entire western US coast. The resultant dust cloud covers much of the Midwest, devastating crops for at least a year. Millions of people die from the direct effects of the impact, and millions suffer a famine the likes of which the world has never seen.
^I got this all off the History Channel, and no i don't watch it alot.^



Many scientists now believe that a "killer asteroid" wiped out the dinosaurs and 70% of all living things 160-million years ago. The Chicxulub asteroid impact of 160-million years ago ,the one that killed off the dinosaurs is the source for all the information.
(They now believe, and can prove, that an asteroid killed the dinosaurs)
The good news is that technology has given us the tools to--perhaps--avert such a disaster.

But this is just all theory, very well documented theory.
(and yes Kami this is a depressing thread)

My bet  is August 22, 2006.  Caused by a sencornized nuclear attack on the U.S. and Isreal.  The Iranian president is dropping hints and there are 40 Soviet Union suitcase nukes missing.  I hope it doesn't happen though because I want to play in the upcomming paintball senerio.

First thing the soviet union is dead, it's called Russia.
Second 40 Suitcase Nukes?? where did you hear about that, they would keep that under wraps.

With the creation of weapon Defence system like, Metal Storm, the smart bullet, and the LDS (laser defence system), I think were safe (from problems on our own planet).

Oh and BTW august 22 is this tuesday.

To be honest, I find all this "the world is going to end" quite boring and a waste of time.

C-3PX2 this asteroid is going to be passing earth in 2029? That's what 23 years ish. I'm pretty certain that technology will advance enough to prevent that happening. Not that you don't have a point.

(run sarcasm.exe)
I would be more worried about the 10 million mile wide planet disolving dust cloud that is ~24000 light years from Earth. And it is heading right for us, travelling just under the speed of light. Dun dun duuhhh!!
(end sarcasm.exe)

If the world ends, then it ends. Not really that big of a deal. Why? Because it isn't like there is anything we can do about it anyhow, at least not at the current moment.

First of all the fact that people are saying this asteroid could hit on a Friday the 13th immediately sends alarm bells off in my head that this is being exaggerated to play upon pathetic superstitutions that people have.  I know there is an asteroid coming close but quite frankly I'm not going to worry about that.  The odds that I will die tomorrow in a car crash are exponentially higher than the odds that I will be alive to even be hit by this asteroid should it defy the odds and hit us.  I believe I also have higher odds of drowning in a bathtub, being struck by lightning, and suffocating on my pillow so putting things in perspective, STOP THE FEAR MONGERING!  I don't know when it became popular to try and get people to live in fear of absolutely everything but when put into perspective it never is as bad as it sounds.

Now on the subject of armegeddon.  Mykill please provide me with some proof.  People were declaring that the Israel-Hezbollah war was a sign and they were proven wrong again with the ceasefire.  People declared Y2K would be the start and were wrong.  People keep trying to predict these insane doom and gloom prophecies and amazingly they never come true; I wonder why?

Of course this is all based upon the assumption that there will be an armegeddon.  My bet is that life on earth will die tens of thousands of years from now when the sun finally begins dying off and can no longer provide enough heat.  By that time we should be able to move to a new solar system if technology advances at even a quarter of the rate it has in the last hundred years.  None of us will be alive to see it so move on and enjoy life.

That is so cool Sam. Just think of the discussion you could have in the after life....

"Oh, how did you die?" a stranger asks.

"I got eaten by a dust cloud," you answer.

And an update to what Art said, the sun has about 4-5 billion years to go. Not much of a threat there. The moon is supposed to mess up our orbit anyways before that.

Even if there is a apolcalypse, we wont be around to see it.

Besides, we can always launch a nuke at an asteroid, cant we? :P

(Sarcasim)There isn't a South Veitnam anymore either?(/sarcasim)  I know that the Soviet Union doesn't exist anymore.  The suitcase bombs were not made by democratic Russia.  They were made by the Commies. 

And I know that that my dooms day date is very soon.  Sappousidly some guy is going to come out of a well, according to the Islam religion, on that date.  Though for that to happen a whole bunch of catastrapy has to happen and the Iranian president has taken up the responisblity to make that happen (Sion roles his eyes). 

For the suitcase bombs, don't ask me, I don't know why it isn't under wraps.

I would point out that not just communists designed nuclear weapons.  Remind of what nation made the first such weapon and was recently considering making new short-range tactical nukes?

As for suitcase bombs go to wiki and look up the article on it.  Normally I would never cite wikipedia as a source but that article summarizes exactly what I've read from a variety of other sources so I believe it's accuracy is pretty good.

I'd like to point out that not all communists are bad. The idea of everyone getting the same wages is actually a good idea. But too many countries have used the money that should go to wages and put it into militaries making the country fail. EX: Soviet Russia

In Soviet Russia Governent screw you!

The only aspect of Communism that actually works is that everyone receives equal medical treatment, and are provided the same chance to survive as everyone else.

However, survival gos beyond putting food and water in your mouth, and a tasteless society full of average people isn't the beginning of culture.

Come on, an Architectural Engineer receiving the same pay as an A&P Cashier? Sure, in Raigen's world. But hey, someone who has a picture of what looks like Clay Aiken in his avatar can think like that.

When refere to the "Commies," I am refering to a Communist government.  When I was talking about the suitcase bombs, I was refearing to the Soviet Union when I said Commies.

Now the American Communist party, they got their crap togeather.  Everything that the middle class complains about they say they want to change.  They are in no way like the Soviet Union or North Korean governments.

Thats not owned Gio. That is clearing something up. Also, please spell out your words so we know that you are being serious and not a moron.

The soviets didn't do suitcase bombs. I don't think anyone did, thought it was just a theory like "Theyve got bombs you can fit in a suitcase." I'll see if any suitcase bombs occured in history.

>Hey, don't beat up so bad on the commie. Pure capitalism was thrown out in the US around the turn of the century for good reason. Pure communism is no good, pure capitalism is no good, we need a mix. Like those nordic countries, with cradle to grave medical coverage but with high taxes.

>About the monkey with his personal army, yes he wants to take on the Muslim world. That's why his team allowed 9/11 to happen, it's to enrage the populace, similar to how Pearl Harbor was allowed to happen (but 9/11 was for less moral purposes). The victims of the attack did not die in vain, they died for George's personal plan of taking on the world. Look at how convienent everything is, with so many motives and so many opportunities. Everything's fit perfectly into the path to invade the middle east, in position for taking out other targets (you know there's going to be many a military complex with USA printed on the side of the buildings). For personal gain this is a horrible proposition, and actually fits the definition of a tyrant (rather interesting). One must also consider that Jihad is not like a war between nations. Nations fight, then peace occurs. Jihad is a perpetual, eternal state of hate, justified or not. I do consider Jihad to be a problem to any sort of peace and security on this planet. I personally think we should be out trying to make peace, stifle the anger be sharing our wealth with the world, but it seems George & Co. wish to simply exterminate and dominate (which is always ineffective besides being amoral as usual).
So basically, my thoughts are that George & Co. is simply conquering Southwest Asia. Whether or not this is apocalyptic or not is up to you.

Raigen, I don't think "pwnt" can be spelled out. And clearly he's being serious. You don't just hand out a "pwnt!" to just anyone.

(To add to my previous statement about the asteroid)
almost all the asteroids in the solar system are from the asteroid belt,
you see when the solar system was created the sun's gravity pulled all the rock and debris together to make the inner (rock) planets, but Jupiter is almost a star and when all the 9 planets formed there was supposed to be a 10th. The Asteroid belt is what was to become the 10th planet.

The gravity of the sun pulls them in, but Jupiter is so strong it keeps them where they are. But the sun is stronger, and soon enough the sun pulls them free and they shoot at the inner planets.
Soon Enough there WILL be a major asteroid impact .

This is how we find them:

^The Center dot that is moving is the asteroid that this picture is tracking.^

In response to the topic about counter measures:
There is only ONE counter measure against an asteroid
it is a terrible idea, but the only defense available right now is, shooting a nuclear missile at the asteroid and hope that it destroys it. here is a link to a site about counter measures against an asteroid

There are ideas to destroy an asteroid,
1) most asteroids are made are hollow in the center, the plan is to use a laser to make a hole in it and use the the pressure inside it as a rocket and move it away.
Others mostly include placing a rocket onto it and fire it to shoot it away.
But one (by favorite) is to use a space ship using an Ion Engine (yes they exist) (not just on a TIE) and grasp hold of it, use the engines and move the ship and then let go of it and the asteroid would drift away.

The problem with all of these it that there are problems to them.
1) Destroying the asteroid could make it break into pieces and make more smaller ones
2) All solutions need time to be done, time which we may not have.
3) almost all the asteroids in the solar system can be found, expert the one coming from the direction of the sun.

The Following is just a random asteroid Impact Picture:

1) Destroying the asteroid could make it break into pieces and make more smaller ones
those would burn up in earths atomosphere. and a hydrogen fusion bomb would be more effective, but we cant harness the heat
2) All solutions need time to be done, time which we may not have.
We should start testing and preparing now.
3) almost all the asteroids in the solar syatem can be found, exept the one coming from the direction of the sun.
what?

and lastly, with the exception of the areas that get hit, the majority of earth excluding third world countries have the technology to sustaine themselves without sunlight.

  HAHA PROOF

here is my proof of the asteroid that may hit in 2029
99942 Apophis is the asteroid that was, and still may be a threat.

(this is taken from wikipedia)

It must be stressed that the odds of impact are now known to be very low. Hence, the possible effects of an impact are largely irrelevant.

However, the initial reports resulted in widespread discussion on many Internet forums, including armchair speculation about exactly where Apophis (then known only as 2004 MN4) would hit and what would happen when it did.

NASA initially estimated the energy that Apophis would have released if it impacted Earth as the equivalent of 1480 megatons of TNT (114,000 times the energy from the nuclear bomb Little Boy, dropped by the United States on Hiroshima, Japan). A more refined later NASA estimate was 880 megatons, which is still around 65,500 times the energy of the bomb mentioned above. The impacts which created the Barringer Crater or caused the Tunguska event are estimated to be in the 10-20 megaton range. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa was the equivalent of roughly 200 megatons.

The exact effects of any impact would have varied based on the asteroid's composition, and the location and angle of impact. Any impact would have been extremely detrimental to an area of thousands of square kilometres, but would have been unlikely to have long-lasting global effects, such as the initiation of an impact winter.

The picture is a estamate of the asteroids path:

which one the picture dosent show up.

Ok, then look at this:

^Taken from the nasa site Blue Line is Asteroid 99942 Apophis (2004 MN4), the white dot labled Earth is us.
The lines cross and the dots almost touch,
if it moves it could hit us.
