Coronavirus plus Armageddon. What are the dangers of alien asteroids who fly to Earth

The leap year 2020 has prepared many surprises. Fans of various kinds of conspiracies have already found predictions of the spread of coronavirus in the statements of Vanga and Nostradamus. However, the true end of the world can overtake mankind from a completely different perspective.

At the end of next month, a Planet Killer will fly next to Earth. It is found out how likely the collision of the planet with an asteroid is and what its consequences will be.

A block the size of a village

On April 29, a giant asteroid 1.7 kilometers long and more than four kilometers wide will fly very close to Earth. The giant space object is called the Killer of the Planets and flies together with a company. According to NASA, which cite the media, this company will be its “little brother.

“Two asteroids – 1998 OH and 1998 OR2 – are characterized as “potentially dangerous” because their sizes are “large enough to lead to global effects if one of them collides with the Earth.”

Scientists give answers to this question in a different way. However, NASA still reassured, arguing that in April the end of the world should not be expected. Asteroids will not come closer than five million kilometers to our planet, despite the fact that their flight path will not be so far from Earth.

However, to prevent these threats, there are large research centers scattered around the world. It is in them that data is collected annually on the fall of cosmic bodies to Earth.

According to various sources, each year, about 500 meteorites slightly more than half a kilogram fall to Earth. Most drop in the ocean or burn out in the atmosphere, but they are all so small that they go unnoticed.

On the other hand, the consequences of a collision of the Earth with such a large cosmic body as the Killer of the Planets can be fatal. You can look at them on the site Impact: Earth!, created by scientists from Purdue University and King’s College London. So, the fall of an asteroid with a diameter of 1300 meters into the ocean at a speed of 38 kilometers per second will lead to tsunamis and earthquakes lasting almost 20 minutes.

If we take the example of another asteroid – 1997XF11, which will fly near the Earth in 2028 – you can see a map of devastating consequences if it falls, for example, in the center of Spain. Its diameter is 1.6 kilometers and a speed of 48,000 kilometers per hour.

The first circle denotes the area in which there will be nothing alive. The second – yellow – limits the area where the vast majority of living things will not be saved, and if they survive, they will have very serious health consequences. The inhabitants of the red circle will be able to stay alive with a slightly greater degree of probability. The green zone awaits massive destruction. Finally, the purple and gray circles are areas that will be struck by a blast wave: deafening sounds, debris and ashes await them. Looking ahead – in the event of such an asteroid falling to Earth, the fate of dinosaurs awaits humanity.

A man who has been to hell told what sinners are punished for

The story happened to one man named Zhao Tai during the reign of the Western Jin Dynasty (265-316). It is described in a collection of Buddhist stories.

At some point, Zhao felt a severe pain and immediately lost consciousness. The man’s body remained warm, so loved ones waited for him to wake up. This happened only 10 days later. After “returning”, Zhao told what happened to him.

Immediately after losing consciousness, a horseman arrived at him. Two escorts led the Zhao to the east, where a big glorious city was located. There were thousands of people who, together with the hero of the this story, descended to the underworld. A man in a dark red robe asked what kind of sins he had committed. Zhao replied that his father and brother were officials, that he studied at home, did nothing wrong and did not commit crimes.

The man was the assigned to command the prisoners in hell. Some went with punctured tongues, others were hugged from red-hot iron, and others had their body part boiled in cauldrons. If a person died during these trials, they were instantly brought back to life. All punishments corresponded to crimes.

If a criminal could cope with all tortures, the next stage would be rebirth and reincarnation. Killers and thieves became pigs and sheep, which the owners eventually slaughtered for meat; people who led a decent life turned into birds and animals; those who did not repay their debts during life turned to horses and donkeys for hard work.

In order not to go to hell, a person must constantly improve and not commit evil deeds. In the underworld, they knew that Zhou was allotted another 30 years, so they released him into the human world.

Exciting (fairy)tales, aren’t they?

5G networks act as an accelerator for diseases

There are concerns that the UK could be severely affected by the coronavirus due to the deployment of the 5G network , conspiracy theorists say.

There are currently 3983 confirmed cases of COVID-19 recorded throughout Britain and Northern Ireland. The disease has spread rapidly since it was first discovered on January 31, 2020. The death toll is 335 people and Prime Minister Boris Johnson warns that this number will increase significantly.

As coronavirus spread around the world , a new conspiracy theory found a grateful audience: virus symptoms: fever, cough and shortness of breath – this is how the human body actually reacts to 5G. The theory was met with skepticism by experts who noted that coronavirus was detected in many areas without 5G networks. Anti-5G critics living in the UK believe the virus most likely started in Wuhan and was shipped to the UK. But they are concerned that an ultra-fast network, currently operating in nearly 100 locations across Britain, could help the disease spread faster.

Somerset-based activist Louise Thomas told The Daily Star Online:

“We cannot say that 5G caused the coronavirus, but that could make it worse.”

Tanja Rebel, another activist and teacher of philosophy at Whit College, said:

“Many studies show that electromagnetic radiation suppresses the immune system and helps viruses and bacteria thrive. Thus, electromagnetic radiation and, in particular, 5G could act as an accelerator of the disease. We don’t know for sure, but common sense and a preventive decree urgently need a moratorium on testing 5G until we can say that it’s safe.”

The precautionary principle states that governments and societies should be wary of responding to anything that could cause catastrophic damage that is not yet fully understood by science. The Public Health Authority of England asked for comments about 5G networks. In Italy, which is now the country with the highest coronavirus mortality rate, 5G networks were established in five cities in 2019 with plans to increase coverage throughout 2020.

A 2011 study at Northeastern University in Boston showed that some unicellular bacteria, such as E. coli (E. coli), can communicate with each other using “radio waves.

“Very little is known about COVID-19, the new coronavirus that underlies the current pandemic, but studies have shown that viruses “talk to each other” when deciding whether to infect a carrier. Activists are now urging the government to stop deploying 5G networks for public health. “Especially in today’s situation, it’s crucial that we don’t play with the lives of our citizens. That would be reckless,” Rebel said.

Jurassic Park will open soon

One of the very controversial dogmas of generally accepted history – both the history of mankind and the history of geology – is a fairy tale about dinosaurs, which are the lowest branch of biological evolution that died out millions of years ago and with which people did not intersect.

The first contradiction to official dogma is the so-called Ica stones found in the region of the same name of the Peruvian city. Stones represent large pebbles, sometimes even boulders from andesite, on which some ancient artists not only diligently painted dinosaurs, but also dinosaurs together with modern people.

From the moment of the first presentation of these stones to the public, the officials carefully refute them as fakes.

The second interesting fact was discovered by ancient miners, geologists, archaeologists and other people who, by occupation, have to either dig earth or make tunnels in the rocks. From time to time they come across not ordinary layers of fern imprinted on the breed, but rather rare fossils of dinosaur bones. In museums they are smooth and shiny, sometimes even coated with varnish, but in the “wild” such bones were seen and touched by a few people. And these people unanimously say that the bones stink of dead wood. It is very strange that the smell of rotten meat could not disappear for 100 or more million years.

Further, when these ‘stinking’ bones fell into the hands of various kinds of researchers, they began to look at the samples under a microscope and find cells there of tissues that were not severely damaged for 100 million years.

For another time, the officials did not pay any attention. And so, as the National Science Review reports on January 12, 2020, a group of histologists discovered somewhere a fresh fossil of the so-called Hypacrosaurus, isolated articular cartilage from there and extracted more or less whole cells from this cartilage:

Since dinosaur cells have been isolated many times, histologists have gone further and having collected more tissues began to look for cells where something similar to the nucleus has been preserved.

At the end, they found such cells: And then, when the nucleus began to be examined, they discovered almost intact chromosomes and special proteins associated with DNA, which gave the shown color reaction. At the end of their histology publication, they write in almost plain text that they are slightly dead, since no DNA, no proteins can be stored for millions of years. They will be consumed by the microbes first, then these microbes will be consumed by other microbes and, after several billion year cycles of DNA devouring, even dust will not remain.

And this is not taking into account the fact that the DNA molecule is rather flimsy and in strength is much inferior to diamond. Just a tiny wrong move – and it breaks down into separate nucleotides. Meanwhile, these molecules have survived and now researchers are carrying out grandiose plans for the reconstruction of the DNA of extinct species, after which the Jurassic Park or something like that will become the obvious consequence of this reconstruction.

Technically, if someone had allocated money for this, dinosaur cloning could have begun in about ten years – all the technologies for this are available, but in reality there is not enough interest. Another thing is much more interesting: why didn’t they look for DNA in fossils before? Is it possible that they have searched, found, maybe even cloned some creatures, but it was a closed topic and it has just opened now?

Of course, no one will answer this question to us, and we don’t need it. The main thing is that all the official paradigms after this discovery, creep at the seams. Firstly, while DNA was preserved in dinosaur fossils, dinosaurs were contemporaries of mammoths and humans, having disappeared only a few thousand years ago, as if in official times of some Egyptians.

Somehow, with the history of Egypt, the whole hypothesis does not officially fit well, because there are no dinosaurs in the ornaments of the pharaohs. Consequently, Egypt, together with the pharaohs, is moving very strongly to our time and it may well be that their Ramses the Great lived only about 1,000 years ago.

Secondly, if DNA is preserved in dinosaur fossils, then such a great scientific dogma as the geochronological scale crumbles. Geologists make a hole in the ground and accidentally find some kind of bone there. Paleontologists come to the place and ask geologists: at what depth, that is, in which of the earth layers was the find? The Geologists explain that the bone was found in deposits of, say, the Cretaceous. And then the paleontologists, having wet the index finger in saliva, lift it up and exclaim: the host of the bone died in the Cretaceous period! Then they write a candidate or even a doctoral dissertation about this matter. However, as it now turns out, there is a whole DNA in the Cretaceous fossils, which moves the Cretaceous period from a distance of 140-60 million years ago to a distance of 140-60 thousand years ago.

It seems that geology is falling apart as a science and it turns out that the Earth, is not four or more billions of years old, but on the strength of several million, and maybe even thousands.

But if the Earth, for example, is about 10,000 years old, then how many years old is the sun? It turns out that astronomy comes to a dead end as well cosmology and the black hole theories.

Nevertheless, we believe that the officers will continue to stand firm in their faith, denying any common sense, so we follow the development of events and wait for new wonderful discoveries: we do not exclude the possibility that they will soon find somewhere a clutch of living eggs laid by the dinosaur, but even, probably, even then the officials will be able to explain all this scientifically.
