Loofahboy- I should just lump you in with Sugarman and Topper but given the fact that your powers of observation are obviously that of a learned sociologist/psychiatrist and that you're oh so very clever; why don't you explain why I'm wrong in my statements? You must have taken some science? Surely you can rip me apart and expose me for the fake or as Sugarman said the "Troll" that I am? Please enlighten us with your words of wisdom!

Sugarman & Topper, -LOL… your statements prove my point clearly. Instead of attacking the facts of my argument you use ad hominem to prove your point. Ladies and Gentleman, I present too you, the Talking Monkeys!

Yellowsquare- In that you at least attempted to have a rationale arguement instead of the Talking Monkeys, I will show you the same respect in kind. Your own observation should be able to answer part of your question. Given someone with, "decades of peer reviewed research"; shouldn’t he be able to list off the problems with the whole Galactic alignment theories? Please name one fact he presented in his diatribe that remotely explains why he's right? As to him being a Professor at Princeton, this is the only proof that I need to know? More importantly, where did I go into his motives? I don't know his motive(s), nor do you! My comments were based on everyone positive statements as to his likablity versus the substance of his arguement. <

lol, how can the sun and earth NOT be aligned - the earth orbits the sun so it is always aligned. unless you start talking about a 3rd planet/object.

And maddog3n...so, just to get this straight...

The professor of astronomy/physics/whatever from Princeton University (a very prestigious institution) who has decades of peer-reviewed research under his belt is not to be listened to because he didn't explain his opinion in great scientific detail because he secretly knows the world will end on Dec 21 2012 but he doesn't want anyone to know about it?

Is that what you're saying?

almightybob, come on. A quote from a book known for its lyrical script is not "bringing that crazy book into something involving science."

In CrakrJack's context, it's the same as quoting Shakespeare. He's not using it as scientific basis, he's using the biblical verse as a way to express HIS feelings that no one knows for certain when Earth will cease to exist.

/religion rant.

And I think Dec 21 2012 is a big deal for everyone because we haven't had a chance to be worried about a catastrophic event in awhile. The Y2Kers were getting bored and antsy.

Hmmmm...did you people just watch the same clip I did? What facts did he use in his argument? Seems to me you people want to only be entertained. You don't even know when your being conned. Here is a little fact that the good Professor should have known and left out: The alignment has nothing to do with the radius of Sun, Earth, and Center of the Galaxy. It has do with the relative position of the Earth, in relation to it's position within the thickness of the disk of our Galaxy. As no orbit is ever absolutely perfect, there is wobble. Therefore, the gravitational forces affecting the Earth would be at their strongest not when it is at the the center of it it's orbit, but at the extreme. All of us are familar with centrifugal force, ie a merry-go-round. So while I don't nor does the Professor know what will happen in 2012, his disingenuious attempt of an explaination should be an insult if you people weren't a bunch of meat puppets.

I remember seeing him on T.v. Didn't he have his own Planetorium(sp) and kept Pluto out?

Funny how Palin catches $h1t for buying clothes for the election, but Michelle Obama is fawned over for her inauguration dress and $540 sneakers.

People, people, PEOPLE! It's going to be perfectly OK. Sarah Palin will be president in 2012. She'll make sure we're all safe. The aliens will come. She will say 'Thanks, but no thanks'. Followed by a day of shopping on tax-payers dollars, then touring a college campus and explaining why learnin' is so hard! Then the aliens will leave never to bother this fu**ed up planet again.
