Just like the rapture, oops, we got it wrong-it’ll happen in a few months-oh darn it didn’t happen at all, story from last year, we’re being bombarded by the tales of future doom and gloom for the rest of 2012.  Here is the latest to cross the CH 2.0 Dunderhead department...we’re about to be wiped out by an asteroid!  

Several sites have tried to persuade readers that this is a hoax. It is not. The academic departments referenced in the story have deep ties to the Military/Industrial complex and have issued denials about any observed near earth object possibly striking earth. However they will not explain the specifics of their research in Antarctica. Only recently did they admit to using an military underwater robot and hot water drill that drills through 1km of ice per day. It is the vehemence of the denials and lack of transparency that is becoming very suspicious.

If you caught Starfire Tor on CoastToCoastAM last week you may have heard her mention that ‘they’, the PowersThatBe know that an incoming near earth object is going hit earth sometime in the next 2 years. There is evidence to suggest the object is going to strike one of the poles… most likely the south pole. Special Scientific teams have been down in Antarctica mapping the ice shelf for probable weak points. The object is rumored to be 800 meters wide and when it hits the south pole the entire ice shelf will collapse within months.

Back in the 90’s, I used to listen to Coast to Coast AM-it was great comedy.  I particularly remember Art Bell interviewing a man who was a time traveler from the future.  Then, other time travelers from the future called to claim that the other time travelers from the future are fakes, and that only they were the real time travelers from the future.  Apparently, there was a great market for time travelers from the future in the 90’s, leading to quite a few frauds.  Or, was that a lack of reliable anti-psychotics?

Anywho, rest easy folks, there are no giant asteroids targeting your back yard.  

Conclusion

There is no known object that is going to impact Earth in 2012. Small to medium objects impact Earth every day with no damage. Large objects are more likely to be found than small objects, and so we are confident that we are safe from large objects for the next several decades.

While there are no signs that an asteroid will wipe us out this year, it is rumored that Snookie’s baby is due on 12-21-12 (the day the Mayan long count calendar runs out).  To me, that is, by far, the greatest threat to mankind.

Maybe those pesky Mayans were right!
