There is a giant rock hurtling through space. It is headed for Earth.
Tonight at 6:28pm EST, it’s going to fly right by us – within the moon’s orbit. (See pic from WSJ)
This shit is crazy. Think about it.
We are living on an enormous spherical rock. This rock is spinning through space around an even larger ball of fire. This rock is surrounded by giant boulders the size of aircraft carriers, hurtling through the void at 29,000 mph, trying to knock us out of existence.
One of these rocks could very well succeed. It’s happened before.
65 million years ago, a rock smashed into the Yucatan peninsula. It was 6 MILES WIDE, and left a crater 110 miles wide (which is still there). The resulting catastrophe caused the extinction of millions of enormous beasts who once roamed the earth. Earth used to be a scary fucking place until that rock dropped out of the sky.
Knowing all that, I don’t understand why religionists feel the need to propagate their absurd myths. Noah built an ark because of a 40 day flood? Really? Am I supposed to be afraid?
Why doesn’t the bible mention that 6 MILE WIDE rock smashed into Earth, obliterating everything? Or an Ice Age that froze the entire planet for thousands of years?
The Truth is a better story than any of the stuff in the bible.
On a related note, I think I’m going to buy Armageddon on iTunes. That movie makes me cry, every time I watch it.
Check out this short clip from Armageddon. If you don’t tear up when the mom says “That man’s not a salesman, that’s your daddy,” you’re not a human being.
