This was posted over in the Astronomy and Atrophysics forum and I wanted to post it here to show why people shake their heads in disgust and disbelief at CTs

At one point, the ignoramus that posted this video states that the comets tail, after perihelion,  isn't even pointing at the sun any longer as if this is some terrifying, otherworldly event.  My little son knew at 5 years old, maybe earlier, that a comet's tail always points away from the sun http://www.windows2u...omets/tail.html .  He then fails to even name the conspiracy or why there would even be a conspiracy and leaves it up to his audience as if any dolt could discern the obvious cover-up.  Cover up what?

After reading his audience's replies over at YouTube, I am assuming that the big conspiracy is that a huge debris field, millions of miles in size is on a collision course with earth. Slap your head in disgust stupidity again.  First of all, ISON was never going to get close to earth orbit, will never return and neither will its debris field.  This is actually a shame because anyone with any interest in the subject realizes that we pass through comet debris fields all the time, they are called meteor showers and are great fun to watch albeit not as many streaks as you wish to see.

There is no conspiracy here.

Don't pay him too much mind, man. He's obviously just another idiot who thinks his ridiculous ideas deserve to be heard.

Unfortunately, the internet doesn't discriminate much against idiots... :unsure2:

Unfortunately,over the Last few months the internet has been awash with doomsayers and Ison conspiracy theories.

I think the latest one involves the Hopi legend of the Blue Star Katchina.

Total bull..

That's why I wanted to nip it in the bud and maybe give some folks that might be buying into all this garbage some real info so they can appreciate what a comet is and what important role they played in the early history of this planet.  It is a far more interesting subject than CTs and planet killing debris fields etc. etc.

Did that huge spaceship with the alien overlords that was following the Hale Bopp Comet ever show up?

And did the video explain how something that is visually verifiable by pretty much everyone on the planet can be kept secret?

After doubling down on stupid and with two minutes left in the video, he said something like, "I don't have to spell out what is going on here, I'll leave it up to you as it is easy to connect the dots." and then muttered inanities for two minutes.  I'd respond on YouTube but don't know how to mask my real name so.

"Connect the dots" is a standard term used by a lot of irrational CTers.  It is usually used to show a rapid jump to conclusions.

They also use sheeple, wake up, truth will set you free, etc memes as if they actually mean anything.

I wouldn't bother dealing with YouTube educators.  Most of them have no clue what they are talking about to begin with.

Yeah, unfortunately for hundreds if not thousands of years comets have been viewed as 'bringers of doom'. Some, unfortunately, can't shake themselves from that cultural artifact.

Oy I been seeing the same thing over on certain doomsday sites, Common sense and science tells us that comets travel at a fast speed and as it starts towards Earth it begins to burn up, so by the time it gets even close to our planet it disintegrates.

The thing the youtube user has going for him is his humor. I find him a bit funny.

Maybe you are right and I am being an ass.  The guy may be doing an "Onion" on us and I bought it hook line and sinker.  Don't know enough to determine the truth of that so bad on me! :cry:

The nonsense that was 2012 has become other inanities. During 2012 comet Holmes was the blue Kachina, not it is ISON. People might someday learn that comets are often photographed with blue filters to increase the contrast. Comets appear yellow to our eyes because our Sun happens to be a yellow star.

My favorite dolt story was that something was sneaking up on the Earth by heading directly at the South Pole. People actually though that somehow made it impossible to see unless you too were at the South Pole looking straight up.

I am fascinated by how easy it is to trick people into really wacky ideas. As the OP tells us even a 5 year old can figure this out.

This is why you hate all "conspiracy theories"? This isnt even close to why you hate them. You hate them cause there is a few big ones that you know deep down are at least possible, but would ruin your boxed in world view if they were.


BTW ison was supose to pass the earth at a distance of 40 million miles. However, since it has broken up, it has been spreading wider and wider. It went from a bulet to a shot gun blast. If it continues to spread the same way it has over the last few days, its entirely possible we may run into some of it. Not that its anywhere near as big a deal as this guy is trying to make it. But it isnt like he is swinging in the dark here. But then you already expressed your hate, while fully admiting you know nothing about the subject. Wait, why should we care what you think about it?

Some things are true, even if you dont believe them.
