Will a giant asteroid hit earth in September 2015?
are reported as “getting underground bases ready” for a possible asteroid impact that could hit earth in September 2015.
Claims have also been made that the U.S. government has had information about the asteroid impact catastrophe for over 24 months, but is keeping the information secret to prevent mass panic.
Stories suggest that “elites” are preparing for the apocalypse by building underground bunkers and government agencies are “assassinating astronomers” who could discover the truth and cause mass panic.
Even more stories in the press, on the news, as well as bible predictions seem to agree on the coming asteroid impact.
It is said FEMA was stocking up on body bags, coffins, and other emergency response supplies in preparation for a major catastrophe in Puerto Rico. These rumours became so strong that FEMA itself was forced to make the following statement:
“FEMA is aware of speculation regarding the purchase of materials from around the United States, especially the Atlantic region. There is no specific threat, catalyst or alert behind the purchase of additional supplies.”
But FEMA’s efforts to counter growing fears of an asteroid catastrophe in Puerto Rico and along the East Coast of the U.S. mainland haven’t done much to stop spreading the rumors.
what does NASA or ESA say?
Strangely, both the space agencies have recently held seminars on “impact scenarios”
NASA has also been reported as testing “asteroid deflecting” technology
NASA plans to send a probe crashing into an asteroid at more than 13,000 miles per hour to deflect it off its course.
This particular asteroid isn’t a threat to us. But NASA is trying to figure out how it might defend Earth from asteroids more generally — in case a big one really does head our way in the future.
This is all part of a joint mission NASA’s planning with the European Space Agency called Asteroid Impact & Deflection Assessment (AIDA). ESA entered the preliminary design phase of that initial reconnaissance mission earlier this year.
The awkward fact for Nasa and other space agencies, however, is that while no large-scale asteroid impacts are currently known about, current efforts to identify and track any objects in space that could hit Earth are woefully small scale. Nasa’s Near-Earth Object Observations Program (‘Spaceguard’) detects, tracks and characterises asteroids within 30 million miles. ESA and other agencies have similar projects. But the depth of the threat is far greater than it is currently possible to accurately track, let along protect against, threats of rocks in space hitting Earth.
What the bible says!
According to Matthew 24:29: Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.
Revelation 8:1-13 “When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. Then I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer, and he was given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne, and the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel. Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth, and there were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.”
Doomsday? – let’s wait and see
“There is no scientific basis — not one shred of evidence — that an asteroid or any other celestial object will impact Earth on those dates,” said Paul Chodas, manager of Nasa’s Near-Earth Object office, in a statement one imagines was issued through gritted teeth.
“In fact, not a single one of the known objects has any credible chance of hitting our planet over the next century.”

Asteroid impacts are fairly common, of course, but Nasa said that of all the rocks currently known about and classed as ‘Potentially Hazardous’ there is just a 0.01 percent chance one would hit Earth in the next century.
“If there were any object large enough to do that type of destruction in September, we would have seen something of it by now,” Chodas said. “Again, there is no existing evidence that an asteroid or any other celestial object is on a trajectory that will impact Earth. In fact, not a single one of the known objects has any credible chance of hitting our planet over the next century.”
