Have you received the following message recently (or sometime in the past?)
NASA predicts total blackout on 23-25 Dec 2012 during alignment of
USscientists predict Universe change, total blackout of planet for 3
days from Dec 23 2012.
It is not the end of the world, it is an alignment of the Universe, where
the Sun and the earth will align for the first time. The earth will shift
the current third dimension to zero dimension, then shift to the forth
dimension. During this transition, the entire Universe will face a big
change, and we will see a entire brand new world. (Note: The message was longer than this ... this is just an extract!)
The HOAX SLAYER website has the following to say:
Not surprisingly the claims in the message are complete and utter nonsense. NASA has made no such prediction. Nor has any other credible scientific organization anywhere else in the world.
In what is apparently an utterly lame attempt to make its outlandish claims seem more believable, the message links to a video featuring NASA administrator Charles F. Bolden, Jr. In the video, Bolden does talk about family preparedness but makes no mention of planetary blackouts, universe alignments or even shifts to the zero dimension. The video can be seen in its original context on the NASA website.
And, for the record, there is no mention of such an impending blackout anywhere on the NASA website. Nor are there any reports about it on any credible news or scientific websites.
Perhaps who ever penned this peice of nonsense to begin with meant it as just a leg pull. A really bad science fiction writer perhaps? And a master of understatement? The messages predicts a catastrophic, utterly world changing event but ends with a casual warning to avoid traveling in December! But whatever its motivation, submissions and comments indicate that the message is nevertheless causing fear and anxiety among at least a few of the more wide-eyed among us.
For those of you who are in fear of this predicted event, know that GOd has plans for you; plans for your prosperity and not for your destruction! (JER. 29:11)
