Comet Elenin – Wild Claims Debunked

Lots of wild claims debunked about Comet C/2010 X1 (Elenin) at this great 2012 debunking site

Here is a quote:

Elenin will not collide with the earth

At its closest approach, Comet Elenin will be 34 million kilometers ( 21 million miles ) away from the Earth. It will also be 4 million kilometers ( 2.4 million miles ) above the orbit of the earth. See this image showing that Elenin will be well above Earth’s orbit, and this image, showing it will be well ahead of the earth int it’s oribt and this video created by member obaeyensobaeyens using the orbital simulator AstroGrav.

“The comet never comes close to the Earth, but it is expected to be visible in binoculars during August and October. Part of the Internet chatter concerns its size. Comets are exceedingly small and enveloped in a tenuous cloud of gas and dust, so the only way to be sure of their actual dimensions is to visit with a spacecraft. This means its mass is less than one billionth the mass of the Earth. Needless to say, we will not be aware of the tiny gravitational pull from Elenin.”

The Earth will not pass through Elenin’s Tail

A common misconception of comets is that the tail streams out behind the comet. Even if that were the case, the images and video above show that we would not pass through the tail. However, the tail of a comet does not stream out behind the comet’s path, but rather points away from the sun. As such, the tail will never be in a position to cross the path of the earth.

Even if the earth were to pass through the tail of the comet, the only effect on the earth would be a nice show of meteors. Perseid meteor shower occurs every year between August 9 and 13 when the Earth passes thru the orbit of Comet Swift-Tuttle. Comet Halley is the source of the Orionid shower in October.13

    ponder on this conversation between god and jesus on the day of judgment.

    “And when God said, ‘O Jesus, son of Mary, did you say unto men, “Take me and my mother as gods, apart from God”? He(Jesus) said, ‘To you be glory! It is not mine to say what I have no right to. If I indeed said it, you would have known it, knowing what is within my heart, though I do not know your knowledge; you know the things unseen. I only said to them what you did commands me:
    “Serve God, my God and your God”
    (Al-Maida 5-116)

    Jesus said “Here, O Israel:
    The Lord our God is one Lord
    ” (Mark 12:29 )

    On that day will lie against jesus, and you can’t bring one quote where Jesus said worship me.

    please do not break the first commandment of all messengers including Moses

    “You shall have no other gods before Me.”

    Why the Antichrist(false messiah)Dajjal’s NWO is at war with Islam?
    because Islam is the true religion of God, throughout history every messenger of God and those that follow him in pure monotheism were prosecuted. and Islam doesn’t recognize the UN or their man made laws called democracy or following human desire in governance, there for it’s the only ideologically opponent they have. Christianity has no teeth when it comes to governance they’ve all ready passivized it and are not worried about it.

    @Issa: Don’t mistake modern western nations or mainstream western churching for “Christianity”.

    Christ made it clear He is God: “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father” (John 14:9) and Job looked forward to His day, saying “For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth” (Job 19:25).

    Your Mohammed taught another way, a religion of works, and accordingly is subject to this condemnation: “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Galations 1:8). So Mohammed is in Hell and all who follow him will join him there.
