December 13, 2012. Earth. Mankind has just one week before the crossroads of eternity intersect on December 21, 2012. At no other time over thousands of years will so many life-ending doomsday cataclysms be scheduled for the same intersecting timeframe. And right on schedule, US astronomers were shocked to see Jupiter collide with an unknown galactic body while a 3-mile wide asteroid just missed Earth on Tuesday.
On Sunday, astronomers were shocked to see a 100 mile-wide asteroid crash into Jupiter (pictured here). Could a similar asteroid hit Earth, again?
December 21, 2012 Doomsday prophecy
For starters, we at Whiteout Press consider ourselves experts on the 12/21/12 Mayan doomsday prophecy, just as we were experts on the Y2K doomsday and the 5/5/2000 planetary super-alignment doomsday. And for the record, the Mayans never predicted much of anything, especially not a doomsday. The Mayans were simply the most expert timekeepers in mankind’s history, including us today. And their 63 million-year calendar ends on December 21, 2012.
In reality, 12/21/12 as far as the Mayans were concerned, was a day just like December 31, 1999 was to us. It signifies the end of a year, decade, century and millennium. Except that while the Mayans only ruled Mexico and Central America for about 2,500 years. Their extremely accurate calendar, giving time itself a start and an end date, spans 63 million years. Will time just start again? We’ll find out in 8 days.
The rest of the prophecy
While the Mayans only kept time and didn’t make predictions, other significant events are scheduled to occur on or near December 21, giving people cause for fear when thinking how it all corresponds with the Mayan’s end of time.
Other predictions and prophecies include the following:
The Great Galactic Alignment – Every 26,000 years, planet Earth finds itself at the exact center, height-wise, of the entire Milky Way Galaxy. With our planet in alignment with more planets, stars and solar systems than in any other time over the last 26,000 years, will gravitational or energy forces have an effect on Earth’s fragile ecosphere?
While the famed 16th century psychic never mentioned December 21, 2012, he did use planetary alignments or other recurring events that happen every 10, 50, 100 or 1,000 years. So while one prediction could fit 1912, it could also fit 2012, 2112, etc. What is certain is that Nostradamus predicted the Earth would experience World War 3 at this time, including the second coming of Christ and the accompanying anti-Christ. According to Nostradamus, the “King of Terror” arrives in July of 1999, while the son of God arrives at the same time. That would make Christ and the anti-Christ 13 years old right now. It would also put 12/21/12 right in the middle of his 20-year war between good and evil. Adding his corresponding prediction, famed American psychic Edgar Cayce said that the second coming of Christ would occur in the year 2000.
Every 11 years, the flames of our sun reach their closest to Earth. This year, as scheduled, saw some of the largest solar flares and sun spots in recent history. Fortunately, none of the fireballs came close enough to fry the Earth as they have in the past. In one period last century, the energy from peak solar flares fried America’s telegraph wires all over the country. If a doomsday solar flare comes our way on December 21, we won’t have much warning. The energy would hit the Earth 8 minutes after the explosion on the sun. A typical solar flares carries the energy of 100 billion Hiroshima bombs.
Pole shifting is very real and very misunderstood. For starters, the physical north and south poles do not actually slide across the Earth’s surface, switching places. Instead, it’s the Earth’s magnetic poles that reverse. The best case scenario is that digital maps, compasses and other devices will not work properly. Our compasses will say they’re facing North, but in reality, they’ll be facing South. NASA attempts to quell fears saying, “A magnetic reversal is very unlikely to happen in the next few millennia.” But the reality is, the poles shift every 400,000 years. The last time they shifted was 780,000 years ago.
The great flood
The causes for global warming may be debated, but the fact that the Earth’s temperatures are heating up beyond our ability to survive them for long is real. What is also real is the fact that much of the ice on the Poles has melted and raised ocean levels. Numerous coastal cities are still under water from recent storms that bypassed their previously effective levy systems. When the remaining ice on Greenland falls into the ocean, it will usher in the proverbial ‘tipping point’. The sea level will rise dozens of feet, wiping out all coastal cities on Earth. It will also stop tropical ocean currents from traveling north, thus ushering in another ice age.
Planet X is named ‘X’ because it isn’t one planet or even one theory. It’s the generic title given to any of a number of predictions, prophecies and potential discoveries of a mysterious, secret planet that is intertwined with Earth’s past, future, or both. One theory is writer Zecharia Sitchin who called it ‘The 12th Planet’, saying it has an oblong orbit and passing Earth every 3,600 years. Sitchin believes it’s populated by humans, maybe even us. Another prediction is based on stories that the US government discovered a planet in the 1980’s that’s on a collision course with Earth. Kept a secret to avoid global panic, the impact date has always been suggested to be 12/21/12.
Most everyone has heard the legends of the Aztec, Hopi and Pueblo who say that a couple thousand years ago, a great white-haired white-man visited their people. This wise holy man gave the ancient Hopi a glimpse of the future, including the events that would usher in the transformation from the 4th world, which they believe we currently live in, into the 5th world, and the global turmoil that will accompany it. They call it ‘the great destruction’. The Hopi’s first 8 warning signs have come to pass. The 9th states, “You will hear of a dwelling place in the heavens, above the Earth, that will fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star.” Many believe it was the space station recently falling to Earth and the Great Destruction will now begin.
Galactic super wave
Scientists and experts agree that at the center of our galaxy is a massive amount of energy, possibly a giant black hole. Periodically, huge super-explosions occur at the center and reverberate throughout the entire Milky Way. Most experts believe these life-ending energy waves only occur once every 10 to 100 million years. But some argue they happen more frequently. When pressed on the subject, some experts insist that our solar system is so far out on the edge of our pinwheel galaxy that the energy would slow down and disintegrate before it reached us. Others argue our distance won’t protect us and that the super explosion already happened millions of years ago. Traveling at the speed of light, they predict it will hit Earth on December 21, 2012.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if some horrible cataclysm occurred on December 21, 2012, but it wasn’t any of the items believers and skeptics have been arguing for the past year. The Christian Bible seems to give us that impression when it says that no man will know the time or the hour. What if life on Earth is extinguished not by any of the above, but by the same thing that allegedly killed off the world’s previous dinosaur overlords – an asteroid.
What’s the difference between an asteroid and a meteor? An asteroid is in space, usually revolving around the sun. Once it enters a planet’s atmosphere, its name changes to meteor. Once it hits the ground, it’s called a meteorite.
65 million years ago, a meteor stuck the Earth and the violent collision is what is thought to have wiped out the dinosaurs and millions of other plant and animal species. That impact, which struck Mexico, was from a 9-mile wide meteor. Just this past Tuesday, the world awoke to the surprising news that an asteroid was going to make a near-miss fly-by of Earth.
No secret to governments and astronomers, Asteroid Toutatis is 3-miles long and was discovered by French astronomers in 1989. In fact, the asteroid will come so close to Earth that even the comparatively small object can be viewed with a simple 4-inch amateur telescope for the next week.
As detailed by the Orange County Register, NASA officials insist there is nothing to worry about. They confirm that Asteroid Toutatis passes the Earth once every 4 years, but insist the closest it will come is about 18 times the distance from the Earth to the Moon. That’s roughly 4.3 million miles. Shaped like a potato and tumbling end over end through space, the 3-mile wide asteroid is thought to make a ‘near miss’ like this once every half century or so. Experts have said that after 2012, the next time it will come this close to Earth is 2069.
Asteroid hits Jupiter
While experts routinely insist that the Earth will never be hit by a life-ending asteroid in our lifetimes, Jupiter proved this week how wrong Earth’s scientists might be. Surprising everyone, including NASA and the rest of the world’s astronomers, a gigantic object thought to be an asteroid crashed so violently into Jupiter that it was seen by Earth’s telescopes.
Early Sunday morning, an amateur astronomer from Dallas, Texas announced he had captured the collision with Jupiter on video. Quickly, a handful of the world’s astronomers found out they had recorded it too. Lasting for only two seconds, the massive fireball lit up Jupiter’s atmosphere with what is being called, “blazing white light.”
For those scoring at home, the asteroid that just missed Earth on Tuesday is 3 miles wide. The asteroid that hit Mexico and possibly wiped out the dinosaurs was 9 miles wide. The asteroid that hit Jupiter on Sunday is estimated to be 100 miles wide. And while NASA and the US government assure us that nothing bad is going to happen in 8 days on December 21, 2012, some of us are getting a little nervous about all these flying space objects. It’s starting to feel like a shooting gallery and the Earth is just another target.
