I'm surprised nobody's posted about this wacky press release that hit the wires yesterday.
Julien claims that the comet's fragmentation isn't natural, but caused by extraterrestrials who are apparently displeased with our stockpiling of nuclear weapons, so they allegedly broke the comet apart to use it as a weapon with the intention of a fragment (or more) impacting the Earth as a "public warning." What's the source of this information, you ask? Why, a vision Julien had while meditating, based upon "information" contained in a crop circle that appeared in 1995 (see images at right, on this page). The Earth is conspicuously absent in that crop circle, which can only have one logical consequence: the extinction of life on Earth.Eric Julien, a former French military air traffic controller and senior airport manager, has completed a study of the comet 73P Schwassmann-Wachmann and declared that a fragment is highly likely to impact the Earth on or around May 25, 2006.
Heh. Translation, he looked at a Java applet roughly illustrating 73P-3B's ephemeris on JPL's NEO program page. Despite all observations indicating these cometary bits will pass though our planetary neighborhood at distances spanning 22-32 LD from Earth, Julien maintains that there are unseen fragments which surely pose a grave impact threat to civilization. And what evidence does Julien base this upon?Using NASA simulations of the comet's path, Julien concludes that impact is likely around May 25 precisely when the comet crosses the Earth's ecliptic plane.
Okay... so why is this just surfacing now, you ask? Easy: the aliens want to prevent us from launching a nuclear strike on Iran. And the government, of course, is covering everything up. Whee...I received on April 7, 2006 a telepathic message from extraterrestrial friends. According to them, a méga-tsunami in the Atlantic Ocean I had experienced in a lucid dream three years ago, would occur around MAY 25, 2006.
As Julien notes in the accompanying paper on his website:
I couldn't agree more, but the forum rules prevent me from spelling it out.The message here cannot be more clear!
