A huge comet with the potential to wipe out life on our planet is hurtling towards Earth, according to best-selling author, Graham Hancock. Ominously, the startling claim serendipitously coincides with claims made by conspiracy theorists that a comet or asteroid will wipe out life on the planet sometime between September 21st and September 28th. NASA even issued an official statement regarding the claims.
In his new book, called Magicians Of The Gods, Hancock claims that prophetic “warnings” left by an earlier, extinct civilization in artifacts such as the Gobekli Tepe pillar tell us of a comet soon to strike Earth.
Hancock says, “These magicians left a message for us – not a metaphorical, spiritual message, but a direct and urgent warning. What happened before can happen again; what destroyed their world can destroy ours.”
Hancock says, “Within the next 20 years, Earth faces a catastrophe a thousand times worse than the detonation of every nuclear weapon on the planet – a collision with the remnants of a comet big enough to end all life as we know it.”
He further claims, “As long ago as 1990, well before the discovery of physical evidence that proved the Younger Dryas Ice Age was caused by comet fragments colliding with the Earth, two far-sighted British scientists were sounding the alarm. Astrophysicist Victor Clube and astronomer Bill Napier believe that a giant unseen comet is now careering towards us through space. It is concealed within a cloud of cosmic debris, known to astronomers as the Taurid meteor stream. This poses a double danger: we could be hit by any one of the millions of space rocks in the stream, or by much larger pieces of the unseen comet itself, if and when it explodes. And it could explode at any moment. It is nothing less than an interplanetary hand grenade. We cannot guess exactly when that explosion will occur. It could happen as we re-enter the meteor stream, or shortly before, strewing our planet’s path with hurtling boulders. All we can know for certain is that, in around 15 years, the Earth will once again cross the Taurid meteor stream, that vast highway of cosmic debris, right at the place where the biggest and most numerous fragments that currently exist are collected. Some of them are three times the size of the asteroid that hit the planet 65 million years ago, setting off a global firestorm and bringing about the extinction of the dinosaurs. This is when the risk of a collision is most severe.”
Hancock claims that a comet which hit Antarctica 12,800 years ago, wiped out a highly advanced human civilization in Antarctica, thousands of years before the invention of the wheel.
Hancock claims that our knowledge of astronomy and mathematics comes from this “lost” civilization.
Whether his ominous predictions are valid or simply a clever strategy to promote his new book is questionable.
