Science Reluctantly Confirms End of World Predictions for May 21st

Seismological data collated today suggests that solar neutrinos are acting in a way that they’ve never observably done before. They’re interacting with solid matter and creating a form of friction.

The result is that the core of the earth is quickly heating and dissolving the mantle containing the liquid iron core of the earth. Eventually (i.e. within only a few short days) the earth’s crust disintegrate and everyone and everything will die.

“There is not a geophysicist or astrophysicist alive today who would have expected that solar neutrinos, which are the incorporeal particles which result from fusion of hydrogen atoms, could interact with solid matter in such a way. Neutrinos mainly only interact with some radioactive isotopes, robbing them of their spare neutrons, which is ultimately how we detect them. The fact that they are heating the mantle of the earth means that we’re all doomed… I’d say that May 21st is the day we’ll all die from the resulting cataclysm,” said Professor Marney Gittman, head theologian at Hoovard University.

So, there you have it folks, the world is coming to an end on May the 21st, supporting the Evangelical Christian group who predicted that the world would end on May the 21st.

The question is, what will you do now? Some suggest killing those pesky kids who’ve been walking on your segment of the sidewalk on their way home from school and making sweet rape to your neighbourhood Presbyterian woman. Alternatively, you can ignore the warning and go about your life as you normally would.

Nonetheless, regardless of what you decide to do, do it soon because the end is neigh. Or, it isn’t. But probably is. Maybe.

Apparently some twit suicided because of the "impending idiocy may 21 - oct 21".

Its a form of psychological bullying to spread this non biblical fear campaign to the deluded and weak willed.

I totally separate myself from any such moron who takes it upon himself to scare frail people.

How many times was the world supposed to end since I was born ? At least 20 times. Each by a loon sect within Christian churches.

The pope for once is right on this "Zont vorry, we haf vays of mekking you eternal perfs of smok!!!

Now who vill I smok today?

To the guys who are worried. Get a copy of revelation on line and do a search on every event that is mentioned elsewhere. If its out of context or has someone consorting with another god, red line it.

wont be much text left...Oh the revelation is a code for the start of the bible? phew, we were all ressurected in the big bang.

Either way, Its the first ever rock opera. Stand up and read it aloud. The entire tone changes.
It actually makes astounding sense if you do this. Just remember, its plagiarised to within a history. enjoy!

So to anyone who believes the frauds McHyde, Missler and Maccanney of this world...the earth will pass through the tail and we are going to die!!!

Well no, a comet tail as thick as the earths diameter is HUGE. Even if it was made of pure cyanide at space pressure...lets even make it at 50 times gaseous partial (space) we would take less than a millisecond to pass through it. Big whoop. Thats enough to kill, nobody, poison nothing.


earth sun distance , pi, earths diameter, 365.25, 24, 3600.).

The doom sayers havent got their third temple either. God is very picky on temples. They havent got a sanhedrin...jeez. Yer equations are way off if you believe missler and mchyde..

in the very very worst scenario it would be a perfect cylinder . In that case the travel would be about 5 minutes in (remember my 50 times pressure make iut worse...1 millibar,) the exposure to the outer protective layers would be, nothing to the atmosphere. incalculable for the biosphere.

Thats how all the christians get saved. All the atheists would obviously die of.....stress because you were cough cough cough...right.

At least all the babies will be in good hands. Everyone who has had sex and the atheists and the babies will remain behind.

BUT, if you were standing on the firmament, you would probably die within a minute. Vacuum and cold is a bitch like that..

All jokes aside, you would be exposed to 1/1000 parts CN- or HCN for a few minutes. but the ceiling limit is 5mg/m3. Not much, but a hell of a lot more than what the comet with a death star excess of 1 mBar hung on it.

So even the genesis people are safe from the end time wormwood twiddlers spruiking fear and death...

Only a moron would believe a date like that considering the amount of unfulfilled prophecy.
Dont believe all you read. ssssspescialy from the Jakesta

Is it just me or does it seem poetical that Mud is dum spellled backwards...give or take a d if you must

The comet Elenin has already aligned with the earth 3 times and we have had three devastating earthquakes on those precise days, look it up on youtube "Elenin"

We all have a free will to choose God or deny him.
Christ only asked you to accept him, nothing else, accept Christ's forgiveness.
Its the religious types like Jake and Hank who place all the burdens on Christianity. They are the priests of the new age, lost in the Old Testament confused and in fear.
Christ said accept his forgiveness and you will be saved.

The end of the world physics #2 Comets Introduction.

Quite a number of James Maccanney aficionados my have their knickers in a knot over comets for other reasons. Jim (who has never published in a peer reviewed science journal) has only ever published the simplest of gravitational calculations in and arts and archaeology magazine in 1981-1983. The papers were no more complex than any junior physics student could do if pondering about the attractions between large and small objects.

Jim used to appear on odd radio shows but has essentially been hunted down by (in comparison) giants showing his predictions to be garbage. His particular bent is that marduk (planet X) is to return and we are all going to die. The fact that Marduk is the semitic name for jupiter has escaped him. People like Tim McHyde have published this and other conspiratorial rot in their end of the world scenarios. Sadly if Maccanney is correct, McHyde admits that the myths of the Babylonians etc are true. This would totally stuff his pamphlet sales.

So to comets...

Comets tend to be relatively small (to moons) objects that move in and out of the solar system. They are essentially large ice and dust objects (Look I would be happy to admit 100's of km across...but they are not).

The gravtic effect of a comet on earth is incalculably small for the purposes of a junior physics problem.

The end of the world physics #2 Comets - gravity...and its effects on us.

For good reason the sun and the moon are the biggest thing in the sky. The greatest gravitic effect on us is the moon. Its big, its close. We can see that tiny effect in our tides. Its tiny! If it wasnt, our glasses of beer would have a noticeable bulge during the course of its imbibement. You can only notice tides on large expanses of water like a sea.

So what if the moon was half its distance closer? Apparently this was the case a long time ago when the moon and the earth formed. At half the distance the tides would have been 4 times higher (rule of thumb, I am happy for someone to show me 10 times higher). The tides advance every day by the time of one rotation of the moon over the period of a true month. These snippets of data were used to calculate the distance of the moon (accurately) and the sun (not so accurately) 300 years before the time of what we call the life of Jesus 25 +/- 100 years CE.

The moon is huge! comparatively, comets are insignificant. A comet passing nearby would have to be on a planetary scale to even effect our tides.

As we know, from above, a comets tail is a thin surface object that diffuses (insanely rapidly) from the side that faces the sun (not the front of an object being ripped apart). If the earth where to travel through a tail your part of the earth would only see the odd millisecond of tail. The contents of the tail would be deflected by the part of the earth passing and pushing at the tail. The contents of the tail is visible (in the right conditions) but has such a weak content a few parts of a millibar that a content would not be detected by the biosphere.

You'd wonder what the worry is...I suppose a direct hit would be a nuisance, but most comets would be torn to pieces or deflected by the subsequent regions that would apply a huge anount of friction. Yep a great hit would be a pain but, we'd get up and be humans again in no time.

So what could it be, a direct hit is a bit of a pain for a big bit of ice junk. Bruce Willis may re-start his career. Frankly its a problem but, we should survive that and given that every comet travel so far indicates That these are way out of plane to the general solar system.

A near flyby would have no effect whatsoever. We have had bigger grazers come insanely close. No tide change, no shift in the plates (as the astrologers would hope for), nothing. A big fat direct hit by a grazer could give us a disater, but that is not a comet.

So a closeby, near, visiting, long distance comet cant hurt our tides, let alone our geology.

So what of alignments? So what I ask, comets come in out of plane, they never align so there are no alignments. The allusion to these are ASTROLOGICAL. Remember when you were kids all the planets were supoosed to align and jesus was supposed to arrive in a hot rod? Didnt happen. The planets (for the most ) are "aligned in a plane. Comets are generally (I mean there a millions of them) If big fat planetary alignments do zilch (to the chagrin of the doom sayers) what of tiddly little comets? Zilch, they never even get into alignment and are far too small to have an effect.

So what about these earthquakes? We get an average number of earthquakes over a defined period. If a city is near one, WATCH OUT. Since december we have had two population centred earth quakes in places where there are earthquakes. The intensity of earth quakes averages out over a year as well. The average geologic work (karblewy watts) done by tectonic shifting is allways the same. If a grazer scored us (which it may well do) It would be a singular phenomenom on top of the normal energy expended during the shift.

So comets that come in and go away do not affect us at all.

Those who tell you otherwise are doom sayers trying to look clever (as they are too lazy to do some simple calculations) or folk who want to scare you.

God moves in mysterious ways they say, but from the bible, he has a very limited tool kit indeed.

Prophecy ... something that has never happened, never will happened but if something sort of, might be possibly like, happened, the dumb fucks who think it may have, sort of might looks like happened....will crow about.

Prophecy, never completed, never fulfilled and should be kept with the psychics and astrologors.

Note, astrologers work off a 2000 year old chart or a non astrological based sector diagram. Neither have any relevance to planetary positions today. These guys are scientists compared to end time doom sayers.

Sinners get fords, the righteous get holdens.. Nobody knows the difference. The manual doesnt tell you.

look at nobodydamus...Like with those thousands of predictions, he may have prophesied but not one so far...

revelation? not one so far..

jesus (if he existed) never made a good one (even any reader would see the little apocalypse was written after the destruction of jerusalem.

So as to christian prophesy, if you say, yes, Its Hadrian jesus and patmos was talking about, it may actually work. But man, thats 1850 years ago with naught new. The amasing thing is that if revelation was written in equivalent 32 or prior to 100 CE, Its incredibly accurate. Its so incredibly accurate that scientists would eat their hats..

Sadly, its supposed to be written about now. So its mythology descriptors cant work anymore.

Comets do not align with earth unless they have something to align to. The central galactic plane?? we align to that every six months and...comet or not.

Prophecy, in the hands of those who would bully the frail!

Yep... and I was the one who used to do the chemistry corrections on the HBD. It used to be the same as here, one guy would ask a hard science question and you would get idiotic philosophy answers or worse, chemistry answers from no chemists.

The phytate controversy ant pH 5-6 isnt a controversy but folk had fairy stories.

At least I saved a hell of a lot of brewers a lot of money by going to popular authors and asking them where they got their notions.

In all but one case it was; "some one told me"....

ie the authors of texts never bothered to ask a chemist to do a first principle analysis. Mind you, there is a generation of biochemists who will tell you that sugar doesn't convert to fat. They never studied their pyruvate conversions..

I am so happy I had a thorough grounding in bio, -chem and physics. Its the sort of priveleg you can only get in plaaces like Oz. Everywhere else, you pay. You Pay, you pass.

I sometimes think Girly is a kid but not yet a tech or uni. The fact that he asks questions is good (even if they are asked at a philosophical level) but he has a tantrum if he gets an answer he doesn't understand.

The crushingly simple question;

How Did Nothing Turn Into Something?

was answered but he started the ritual abuse. He can be nice, but its only to try and set you up into a creationist "trap". Then he will go beserk again. Conversely ask him anything about the bible and you have to wait around before he even works out its a question that he should know.

He still doesnt admit to being related to Noah, or is it he doesnt know the difference between Abraham and king David. Cast back and you'll see.

If you are nice to him, he will soon abuse you.

PS from the doubtful manganese isotopic work it was found that neutrino showers my reduce the half life. This may have the same effect on core matter but its not the production or eating of neutrons, Its the maintenance. Good fun article Jake.

Stuff the comets and earth quakes,

Nuclear Fuel Rods Will Never Be Able To Be Placed Into Cold Storage, Ever
Fukushima isn’t going away. The reactors can never be placed in ‘cold shutdown‘ because the cores are partially melted together. We are talking about hundreds of tons of fissile material inside reinforced concrete containment vessels. The containment vessels are cracked. They are releasing radiation. Fission excursions are still occurring and no one can go inside those containments for hundreds of years – even if they could get to the fuel.

They continue to pour water on them and drain it off into the ocean because there is nothing else they can do. If they stop pumping water, the genie comes out. If they keep pumping water, it has to go somewhere and that somewhere is the ocean. It is still a stop gap. Those reactor cores cannot be put into ‘cold shutdown’ or dismantled or entombed. Ever.

They cannot treat as much radioactive water as they have to keep pumping in. No one can. So the radiation is going to come across the Pacific and impact the US and, certainly, Hawaii. Yes, I read that they are going to start treating it or storing it, but the task is impossible. Reactor cores have to be maintained in a ‘clean room’ environment or the water picks up particles – which then become radioactive – which then irradiate the reactor plumbing – and, eventually, become fuel. That’s why they have to keep pumping fresh water in and dumping it out. They cannot recirculate it, even if they manage to get new plumbing installed. The next major earthquake there will begin an extinction event.

I agree with Friendo. You've gone way to far. I hardly see how you connect the end of the world/doomsday scare tactics with killing children for no good reason or raping the Presbyterian woman. More than likely, people will scurry about in the shopping malls or doing things they really wanted to do that they would enjoy; not killing or raping. What would killing children benefit anyone -- we'll all be dead "soon" anyway. As for raping -- I'm not sure why you picked rape, or a Presbyterian woman. Are bad, evil people not going to do something all because they believe the world ISN'T coming to end quickly? Seems to me the end of the world/doomsday predictions have never weighed heavily, if AT ALL, on an evil person's actions.

Sounds more like mainstream Christianity is in bed with the shopping malls and their kin: "Sale ends Thursday! Hurry, you don't want to miss this sale and wind up being left behind and among the few idiots who still watch television on last year's technology!!"

Can you be any more naive

Dr. Helen Caldicott's March 18th press conference in Montreal, sponsored by the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG)

Our thanks to Felton Davis for the transcription from the GRTV Video recording and for the annotations.

This press conference organized by Globla Research was held in the context of Helen Caldicott's public lecture to Montreal on March 18, 2011.

First I want to present this report, produced by the New York Academy of Sciences, a report on Chernobyl. It can be downloaded.(2) They translated 5,000 articles from Russian for the first time into English. It seems that nearly a million people have already died as a result of Chernobyl, despite what the WH0(3) says and the IAEA.(4) This is one of the most monstrous cover-ups in the history of medicine. Because everybody should know about this.

Then we extrapolate through to Japan. Japan is by orders of magnitude many times worse than Chernobyl. Never in my life did I think that six nuclear reactors would be at risk.(5) I knew that three GE engineers who helped design these Mark I GE reactors, resigned because they knew they were dangerous.(6)

So Japan built them on an earthquake fault. The reactors partially withstood the earthquake, but the external electricity supply was cut off, and the electricity supplies the cooling water, a million gallons a minute, to each of those six reactors. Without the cooling water, the water [level] falls, and the rods are so hot they melt, like at Three Mile Island, and at Chernobyl.

So the emergency diesel generators, which are as large as a house, got destroyed by the tsunami, so there is no way to keep the water circulating in the reactors.(7) Also, on the roofs of the reactors, not within the containment vessel, are cooling pools. Every year they remove about thirty tons of the most radioactive rods that you can possibly imagine.(8) Each one is twelve feet long and half an inch thick. It gives out so much radiation, that if you stand next to it for a couple of minutes, you'll die. Not drop dead. Remember Litvinenko, the Russian, who got poisoned by polonium?(9) You'll die like that, with your hair falling out, and bleeding with massive infection, like AIDS patients die.

And [the spent fuel rods] are thermally hot, so they have to be put in a big pool, and continually cooled. The pool has really no roof.

There have been three hydrogen explosions, blowing off the roof of the building, not the containment vessel of the core, but the roof. And exposing the cooling pool.(10) Two of the cooling pools are dry. They have no water in them. Meaning that the nuclear fuel rods are covered with a material called zirconium. When zirconium is exposed to air, it burns, it ignites. Two of the cooling pools at this moment are burning. In the cooling pools are many times, like 10 to 20 times more radiation than in each reactor core. In each reactor core is as much long-lived radiation as would be produced by a thousand Hiroshima-sized bombs. We are dealing with diabolical energy.

E=MC2 is the energy that blows up nuclear bombs. Einstein said nuclear power is a hell of a way to boil water.(11) Because that is all nuclear power is used for, to boil water through the massive heat, turn it into steam, and turn a turbine which generates electricity.

Now when you fission uranium, 200 new elements are formed, all of which are much more poisonous to the body than the original uranium.(12) Although uranium is pretty poisonous. America used it in Fallujah, and in Baghdad. And in Fallujah, 80 per cent of the babies being born are grossly deformed.(13) They're being born without brains, single eyes, no arms... The doctors have told the women to stop having babies. The incidence of childhood cancer has gone up about twelve times. This is genocide -- it's a nuclear war being conducted in Iraq. The uranium that they're using lasts more than 4.5 billion years. So we're contaminating the cradle of civilization. "The coalition of the willing!"

In the nuclear power plants, however, there is a huge amount of radiation: two hundred elements. Some last seconds, some last millions of years. Radioactive iodine lasts six weeks, causes thyroid cancer. That's why people are saying, "Better take potassium iodide," because that blocks the thyroid uptake of radioactive iodine, which later can cause thyroid cancer.

In Chernobyl, over 20,000 people have developed thyroid cancer.(14) They have their thyroids out, and they will die unless they take thyroid replacement every day, like a diabetic has to take insulin.
Strontium-90 will get out, it lasts for 600 years. It goes to the bone, where it causes bone cancer or leukemia. Cesium lasts for 600 years -- it's all over Europe. 40 per cent of Europe is still radioactive. Turkish food is extremely radioactive. Do not buy Turkish dried apricots, or Turkish hazelnuts. The Turks were so cross with the Russians, they sent all their radioactive tea over to Russia after Chernobyl.(15)

Forty per cent of Europe is still radioactive. Farms in Britain, their lambs are so full of cesium they can't sell them. Don’t eat European food.

But that's nothing compared to what's happening now. One of the most deadly [nuclear byproducts] is plutonium, named after Pluto, god of the underworld. One millionth of a gram, if you inhale it, would give you cancer. Hypothetically, one pound of plutonium if evenly distributed could give everyone on earth cancer. Each reactor has 250 kilograms of plutonium in it. You only need 2.5 kilograms to make an atomic bomb, because plutonium is what they make bombs with.

So any country that has a reactor, works with your uranium. You [Canada] are the biggest exporter of uranium in the world.(16) Canada sells two things: it sells wheat for life, and uranium for death. Plutonium is going to get out and spread all over the northern hemisphere. It's already heading towards North America now.

Radioactive iodine, plus strontium, plus cesium, plus tritium, and I could go on and* on and on. When it rains, downs come fallout, and it concentrates in food. If it gets into the sea, the algae concentrate it, hundreds of times. And the crustaceans concentrate it, hundreds of times. And then the little fish, then the big fish, then us.(17)

Because we stand on the apex of the food chain. You can't taste these radioactive food elements, you can't see them, you can't smell them. They're silent. When you get them inside your body, you don't suddenly drop dead of cancer, it takes five to sixty years to get your cancer, and when you feel a lump in your breast, it doesn't say, "I was made by some strontium-90 in a piece of fish you ate twenty years ago."

All radiation is damaging. It's cumulative -- each dose you get adds to your risk of getting cancer. The americium is more dangerous than plutonium -- I could go on and on. Depends if it rains if you're going to get it or not. If it rains and the radiation comes down, don't grow food, and don't eat the food, and I mean don't eat it for 600 years.

Radioactive waste from nuclear power is going to be buried, I hear, next to Lake Ontario. It's going to leak, last for millions of years, it's going to get into the water, and into the food chains. Radioactive waste will induce epidemics of cancer, leukemia, and genetic disease for the rest of time. This is the greatest public health hazard the world has ever witnessed, apart from the threat every day of nuclear war.

Einstein said "the splitting of the atom changed everything, save man's mode of thinking" -- very profound -- "and thus we drift toward unparalleled catastrophe." We are arrogant, we have a lot of hubris, and I think the reptilian mid-brain of some men's brains is pathological.(18)

We are in a situation where we have harnessed the energy of the sun. It is totally out of control. And there's simply nothing we can do about it.

Excerpt: On February 2, 1976, Gregory C. Minor, Richard B. Hubbard, and Dale G. Bridenbaugh "blew the whistle" on safety problems at nuclear power plants. The three engineers gained the attention of journalists and their disclosures about the threats of nuclear power had a significant impact. They timed their statements to coincide with their resignations from responsible positions in General Electric's nuclear energy division, and later established themselves as consultants on the nuclear power industry for state governments, federal agencies, and overseas governments.

Excerpt: Alexander Litvinenko was a former officer of the Russian Federal Security Service, FSB and KGB, who escaped prosecution in Russia and received political asylum in the United Kingdom. He wrote two books, "Blowing up Russia: Terror from within" and "Lubyanka Criminal Group", where he accused the Russian secret services of staging Russian apartment bombings and other terrorism acts to bring Vladimir Putin to power. On 1 November 2006, Litvinenko suddenly fell ill and was hospitalized. He died three weeks later, becoming the first confirmed victim of lethal polonium-210-induced acute radiation syndrome. According to doctors, "Litvinenko's murder represents an ominous landmark: the beginning of an era of nuclear terrorism". Litvinenko's allegations about the misdeeds of the FSB and his public deathbed accusations that Russian president Vladimir Putin were behind his unusual malady resulted in worldwide media coverage.

Hey Mud, Girlie has another media opinion. Wonders how many seconds he needed to google that cut and paste?

You are right.

Her hospital wasn't using standards and QC? It would be a while, she wouldn't have seen a patient on radiotherapy since 1975.
