According to ancient Egyptian mythology, Apep or Apophis, was the ancient Egyptian deity who embodied chaos and thus was the opponent of order and truth. Appearing in ancient Egyptian art as a giant serpent, as this Wikipedia entry for Apophis reports, Apophis was viewed as the greatest enemy of 'Ra', the solar deity of ancient Egyptian mythology, the bringer of light to the planet. So 'Ra' gave 'Apophis' the nickname 'the Lord of Chaos' and as Wikipedia reports, Apophis was thought to live in the underworld, known as 'the eater of souls', with Apophis also thought to embody all evil and darkness in ancient Egypt.
Why the quick lesson in ancient Egyptian mythology you might ask? As Newsweek reports in this April 30th story titled "God of Chaos Asteroid Apophis Is Headed For Earth - And NASA Is Excited", on Friday, April 13th of the year 2029, yes, almost 10 years away still, a 1,110-foot-wide asteroid known as 99942 Apophis will speed past our planet at an estimated distance of around 19,000 miles, potentially coming closer to the surface than some orbiting spacecraft.
Yet as has long been warned, what has happened before can surely happen again though as this new story over at Justus Knight News which Steve Quayle had linked to on his website on Wednesday asks, is this all mass deception? We have embedded Justus's full video as the final video at the bottom of this story, a story within which we're going to take a look at the sudden mass influx of 'asteroid doom' stories all across the internet the last few days and why this all may be happening now.
NASA is going to be using a simulation of an “asteroid apocalypse” in order to help the space agency prepare for the cataclysmic event. And they are taking it seriously, as disaster planners from FEMA will join NASA for a dress rehearsal of doomsday.
International partners, including the European Space Agency (ESA), will also be a part of the simulation. The drill is said to be a “tabletop exercise” that will simulate just how a planetary asteroid emergency would play out in real time. Although an emergency on this scale has never happened, and factors such as the location of impact will have a massive effect on the response to such a globally catastrophic event.
According to the Metro UK, disaster planners from Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will join with NASA to hold a “make-believe apocalypse” intended to “inform involved players of important aspects of a possible disaster and identify issues for accomplishing a successful response.” The scenario will begin with the fictional premise that on March 26, astronomers “discovered” a near-Earth object (a comet or asteroid which comes within 30 million miles of Earth and one they consider potentially hazardous to Earth), NASA wrote.
And as this story over at Epoch Times reports, an event such as a killer asteroid crashing into the Earth could very well happen in our lifetime's. And while nobody should lose any sleep over something that is out of all of our control, the threat of asteroid's is real nonetheless so it's good seeing somebody doing something to prepare. Check out the wording.:
The head of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said that a major asteroid could crash into the Earth in our lifetime.
Jim Bridenstine, the agency’s administrator, said during a keynote speech at the International Academy of Astronautics’ 2019 Planetary Defense Conference in College Park, Maryland that the threat of asteroids is real.
“We have to make sure that people understand that this is not about Hollywood, it’s not about movies,” Bridenstine said on April 29, reported Space.com. “This is about ultimately protecting the only planet we know right now to host life, and that is the planet Earth.”
With even the White House recently putting out the document we've embedded at the very bottom of this story titled "NATIONAL NEAR-EARTH OBJECT PREPAREDNESS STRATEGY AND ACTION PLAN", we think at least it's good that somebody is attempting to do something about a problem that will never go away and at it's greatest threat, wiped out the dinosaurs.
While Paul Begley argues in the 2nd video below that the arrival of Apophis could be tied to Biblical prophecy, we find the timing of all of these stories about Apophis and NASA's preparation for an 'asteroid apocalypse' to be a bit odd, especially considering Apophis's arrival is still nearly 10 years away. Why the sudden plethora of mainstream media stories?
We'll take a look within our final section below at a topic that we haven't tackled here on ANP for a while yet we must considering how it ties in to the subject matter of this story and the fact that the 'hunt for Planet Nine' is still ongoing.
According to two astronomers from Cal Tech, Mike Brown and Konstantin Batygin, a mysterious heavenly body they have named 'Planet Nine' exists somewhere in the farthest reaches of the outer solar system. And while a worldwide two+ year search had been launched to officially 'find' this mysterious 'planet', as of yet, it has not been found though new evidence of its existence has emerged.
Nicknamed 'the perturber', retired astrophysicist Daniel Whitmire of the University of Arkansas has argued this mysterious planet (or whatever it is!) may be responsible for periodically casting Kuiper Belt asteroids into the inner solar system and may have very well been responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs. And as Whitmire argued several years ago, will happen again. From this story over at The Express they reported.
The Planet Nine hypothesis was introduced in 2016 in a bid to explain the “eccentric” orbits exhibited by some objects on the far fringes of the solar system. This unexplored region of space known as the Kuiper belt is home to a vast asteroid field and a number of dwarf planets, including the dethroned Pluto. The Kuiper belt sits approximately 50 astronomical units or 4.6 billion miles (7.5 billion km) from the Sun, past the orbit of Neptune. And it is in this part of the solar system that some trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) appear to cluster together and orbit the Sun in an unusual elliptical manner.
Planet Nine, the massive orb proposed to explain the clustered orbits of a half dozen remote Kuiper Belt asteroids, may have a darker side. Periodic mass extinctions on Earth, as indicated in the global fossil record, could be linked to the hypothetical planet according to research published by Daniel Whitmire, a retired professor of astrophysics and faculty member of the University of Arkansas Department of Mathematical Sciences.
Might all of these recent asteroid doom stories have something to do with 'Planet 9' and its return to the part of space where it does it's most damage? With all of these stories coming out within days of each other about something that is still 10 years off in the future, we'll do ourselves best by asking: "What are they hiding by talking about this now?"
