Dark Comet in 2012? Researcher Unravels Potential Doomsday Culprit

Share Article

Could there be some truth behind the numerous 2012 doomsday theories? Researcher Robert Bast has discovered a plausible candidate for a catastrophe in 2012, combining both the start and end dates of the Mayan Long Count calendar with ancient records of a major comet.

Few researchers have paid any importance to the start date of the Long Count calendar. And few have looked into global cataclysms that ancient civilizations were actually capable of predicting

Comet Caesar, with recorded sightings in 44BC, is the oldest known periodic comet. With Bast's hypothesis of 5 orbits averaging 1025 years, the 44BC passage fits in well with the 2012 end date, and just as importantly the 3114BC start date, of the Mayan Long Count calendar. This estimated orbital period differs from the 44BC sighting by only 6 years, or 3 years per thousand year orbit. Given that the periodicy of Halley's comet can vary by 2 years within a 76 year orbit, due to the gravitational influences of the planets, the connection could be precise.

Bast says "Few researchers have paid any importance to the start date of the Long Count calendar. And few have looked into global cataclysms that ancient civilizations were actually capable of predicting".

If any catastrophe in our era could be accurately predicted by an ancient civilization, comets are the leading candidate. The relevant observational and mathematical skills existed in pre-history, and the coding of information in calendars and myth would enable the information to outlast the culture that provided it.

If Comet Caesar does return in 2012, hopefully it will just be a fleeting visit, and not an impact with Earth. If it is on a collision course, we might see it coming within a year or two, providing us with the opportunity to prepare. Unfortunately there is a possibility it is now a "dark comet", having lost its reflective ice during its last passage around the Sun. In that scenario, we won't even see it coming.
