I didn't read the whole thing, but all I read is that scientists predict that it will hit earth in 2036. Well.....will this even matter? 'Cause there are a lot more sooner predictions about world ending events. Such as the closest one, the Mayans predicted deadline, 2012.

LOL the mayans DID not predict the end of tthe world. Also, it some freaking theory that other people made up. NOT THE MAYANS. Also, this asteriod could case serious damage to Earth. technically, this asteriod has the potential to cause mass extinction. I dont think u realize how serious this threat is. Also, Read the freaking thing before u post. Otherwise dont post at all.

You forgot to also caps the "not" after "did". The Mayans did predicted the end of the world. But even after that, what about global warming? Over population? Nature destruction? (not predictable, but it could happen). Diseases? Big, big, big, big, big, big ,big, big, big, big, big, big, cont....financial crisis that basically kills everyone (bigger than the current one)? There's always us, the revival of the KKK, a powerful doomsday cult, etc.?

well i read the thing but personally i had my fill of doomsday theories.why does anyone predict good stuff nowadays like for example in 2020,we gonna discover an alternative to fossil fuels that completely eliminate all enviromental consequences or somebody going to find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.he becomes so filthy rich he eliminates hunger and poverty from the world.far fetched eh?

well jokes aside,in all seriousness by 2029 most of us would be in old age like in our forties right?we lived life already so it be most interesting in our old age to see how the governments of the world will deal with the threat..maybe we nuke it like in the movie armageddon.

this is a serious threat to mankind but we are already living in a world filled with serious threats to the right and left,the lake toba theory,the depleting ozone layer,the methane clathrates under the sea,the 2012 doomsday prediction....need i go on?if our final destination is extinction well we all gonna die one day right?who lives forever?

i find it relieving to know someone else thinks like me with all the doomsday shit. In my opinion ya the world can end any day now but *shrug* i guess I dont rly care, specially if we all go @ once, the old bad guy line comes to my head at that thought.. what was it? "if im going down im bringing you with me" or something like that right? lol alright now maybe thats a little selfish but you no everything dies so it doesnt realy bother me. I've had my look at life, looks like a big pain in the ass.

Instead of nuking it maybe a secret superhero will come out & save us all or maybe we will have figured out a way to live on different planets alrdy and earth is just a garbage dump & it does explode. i'm open to possibilities, lol
.....ohhh maybe aliens come and save us & then take over our world. that seems like it'd be fun

There are a lot of these theories. I read somewhere about the earth going red, the sky and everything will go red in 2010 or 2012.

But a very intresting theory I read about on the internet is a theory both Nostradamus and the holy Bible describe.
The prophecies of Nostradamus (the French prophet who lived several hundred years ago), in Century 1, Number 69, describes a mile-wide mountain hitting earth, destroying entire countries. Note this is the size of asteroid 2002 NT7, due to pass near earth in 2019.

Century 1, Number 69 [verse from Nostradamus].

“A mile-wide mountain (asteroid) strikes earth
after there is peace, war, famine, and floods,
the asteroid strike causes widespread flooding of nations,
some of which are ancient.”


And in the Bible’s Book of Revelation (Revelation consists of prophecies of the future, it was written about 1900 years ago), in chapter 8, a mountain on fire is thrown into the sea, and a blazing star strikes the earth, poisoning the water on earth, and the sun is darkened. This is actually a vivid description of what would happen to the earth– acid rain from the dust cloud would poison the rivers and oceans, and the dust cloud would cut off sunlight. Considering that the Book of Revelation was written 1900 years ago, it is remarkable how Revelation 8 describes an asteroid hitting earth and the resulting devastation.
