Pat Robertson Says Doomsday Asteroid Could Strike Earth Next Week: Video
"The chance of a city-killing asteroid striking Earth is higher than scientists previously believed, a non-profit group building an asteroid-hunting telescope said on Tuesday.
A global network that listens for nuclear weapons detonations detected 26 asteroids that exploded in Earth`s atmosphere from 2000 to 2013, data collected by the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization shows."
The B612 Foundation has a vested interest in scaring the crap out of us, they have an asteroid-hunting telescope they`re hoping NASA will be interesting in buying.
The Rev. Pat Robertson almost wet his Depends when he heard about the news conference where these egghead scientists warned that the Earth is in imminent danger of being destroyed by an asteroid.
"I wrote a book, I wrote a book. It`s called `The End of the Age` and it deals with an asteroid hitting the Earth," the televangelist proclaimed on the "The 700 Club." "I don`t see anything else that fulfills the prophetic words of Jesus Christ other than an asteroid strike. There isn`t anything that will cause the seas to roil, that will cause the skies to darken, the moon and the sun not to give their light, the nations terrified on Earth saying `what`s happening?`"
Robertson was absolutely giddy at the prospect of an asteroid destroying our little blue planet. For Robertson a vision of the Almighty smiting billions of men, women and children isn`t a nightmare, it`s a wet dream.
Of course Robertson was also thrilled because the warning by the alarmist scientists that the Earth is in danger of being destroyed by an asteroid may cause his 1995 novel "The End of the Age" to sell a few more copies.
I`m not a rocket scientist or a theologian, but I would venture to prophesy that the chance of a bird crapping on my head in the next few months is pretty good, and the chance of an asteroid destroying the Earth in this century is almost nil.
