    Yeah I read what mellowmaromis' dude said and what tsuraras' dude said. In all honesty I can't even see why you would be worried about something like this. Like the astromaner says it can't be that professional if he thinks lightning comes from the suns plasma. I don't see there being any kind of armegedon(spelling?) any time soon. After all I'm a believer in God so I belive that the end is when he comes, and I don't think an asteroid counts as god.

    both very good points, tsurara.

    the few people that put out rumors like this make me laugh. if it was a serious threat, a credible threat, then i think someone would have made it more well-known, and if they posted a YouTube video, someone who knew wtf they where talking about. The government (for the most part) isnt Evil. you are forgetting, most of the government is made up of clerks, secretaries and other people who arent senators or the president. they have families too, and likely wouldnt be in the "privelages class" that "gets to their shelters". besides, its not like a bomb shelter would protect you from a massive asteriod. its not just the impact that would kill you, the after effects would be worse. so if you see massive ammounts of "space shuttles" launching into the air carrying mistaah bush and his homies, then you could be legitamately worried.

    In regards to an "Impact":

    The only arguements I've heard of late that are in the smallest bit valid, are the ones concerning "Nemesis" (AKA, the revised Planet X theory). This theory involves a "Brown Dwarf" (dead star that has not gone Supernova nor turned into a blackhole), which is a twin to our primary star Sol (The big orange thing in the sky).

    This theory states that this giant Darkstar occasionally, every so many thousands of years passes by a nearby Oort cloud, which then pummels nearby planets in our system with thousands upon thousands of meteorites\asteroids and cause an Extinction Event.

    This is one of the many preposed theories behind the death of the dinosaurs, and the strange coincidences concerning ancient calenders.


    So, NO. Unless the Asteroid is Wormwood, I most sincerely doubt its heading our way.

    In FFVII - sorry, geek self talking - it was the cause for the end.

    Putting aside my geeky self, if there were an Asteroid that large and supposedly the government was lying in some way about it, why would the newspapers, channels and all that lie? They happily tell any story that would give them a raise in viewers, aliens, floodings, anything. I'm sure there are contacts within NASA as well so that if anything were to come, it would be headline news.

    Besides, don't count out the military power just yet for there are still the "Star Wars" lasers up and running from the cold war days. With a few upgrades it would take a huge threat and at least push it away, it is space, not much energy is needed to change a beeline course to a different location.

    Well that depends on how much force it is exerting towards us that depends on how much force wed have to use to change its direction. And if it were a large enough astroid we may not have enough fire power to push it away. Though i personly dont know of any HUGE asteroids like that.

    even though it is in space, a large asteroid is going to have astronomical () momentum. you wouldnt just be able to "push it away" with the star wars lasers. besides, they where more or les just for detecting missiles.

    since im a FFVII nerd to, i suppose if you are really that worried about it, mello maromi, go find a white materia called "holy"

    Never said I was worried. Never even said I regret anything. I wouldn't even be said if it were to hit.
