What astronomers/researchers have found is that all the planets will be aligned, something that hasn't happened for thousands of years. There is no mention of a comet or a killer comet. Only that the Mayans had no way to predict an event, and yet the stars will be aligned on said date.
I'm not someone who has any skills or really knows about this kind of thing. But I do have an open mind, and my gut intincts tell me this will be a spectacluar event. Not something to "Â fear ", but yet something to embrace as it might be the next big evolution jump for humankind.
Very interesting that their calendar ends with the planetary allignment. It sounds to me like their calendar was based upon planetary positions. If that is so, it proves they did what the Bible tells us the stars are for - signs (and wonders). They made use of those "signs"Â as we continue to use the Earth's motion relative to the Sun.
And in response to the fellow talking about life originating from evolution, it's an unobserved, unproved and unprovable, rather religious belief about the origin of the life on this planet. Saying there is life elsewhere remains a matter of faith as well. Neither belief can be called scientific - they just happen to go against God, and calling them scientific is saying that science is that which is against God (or against religion). But anyone who is convinced that he knows life's origins, the nature and age of the Earth, or any such unobservable and untestable claim, is just fooling himself. Let's just remain with the best wisdom - we don't know squat. We can guess and guess about things, but we do not know a thing. Only what science can actually observe, which is pretty limited - especially where outer space and matters of prehistory are concerned. Accepting that we do not know is also the basis for listening to God and trusting His word, which if you ignore pseudo-science like evolution-ex-nihilo and the old-earth-theory, remains true. We can't hope to accurately date the Earth, as we can't even begin to know how conditions were when the Earth was new. We also can't find anything, not one thing, that is older than mankind and actually know its age, allowing us to gauge our test methods. There is no way to confirm the results. And then there is evidence against it, such as various features on the planet (oldest desert, oldest trees) being around 4,000 years old, and the moon moving away from the Earth. If it's always been moving away at its present rate, it can't have been doing so for millions of years. It would have been too close. And there isn't enough dust on Earth or on the moon from space to account for such age. And so on.
Not saying the Bible must be the truth, as again, we can't know. Not without faith, anyway. A belief in evolution is no more valid than believing in creation by God. And as for Nibiru, let's see it. It ought to be visible by now. I expect an object will indeed strike the planet in the end, and no amount of knowledge or technology will be able to stop it. Heck, might be "wormwood"Â from people trying to stop it, polluting it with radiation that then gets spread around the Earth at impact. Now there's a thought..
