Something about this article that doesn’t feel as reassuring as it was probably intended to be. They start with a picture of an asteroid almost large enough to be a dwarf planet (ok, maybe not that large but definitely one of the largest asteroids in our system) but never mention it in the article (unless I missed it). Then they give impact statistics that may be based on good science but anyone who keeps track of newly discovered asteroids already know how many 2011 named asteroids have already passed between the earth-moon system.
Wonder if an early warning would actually be issued if a newly discovered 2km asteroid was on track to cross our orbit. Probably not cause the threat of total chaos would be a bigger fear than the impact. If NASA discovers an asteroid is headed toward collision with Earth would we be told? I doubt it… Greed will be part of our self destruction.
Jewish & Space weather forecasting
Yeshua said in Lk 12:54–57: When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass. Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?
You may see a sign that says—THE BRIDGE IS OUT, and say, “Oh, someone is just trying to scare us.” Certain signs were meant to warn people of impending danger. God wants you to know, WHEN YOU SEE (the prophecies from the Bible), COME TO PASS, KNOW YE THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NIGH AT HAND–ref Lk 21:31.
