According to NASA, Comet Elenin has broken up. Never very impressive, the comet has fallen apart in its orbit:
Latest indications are this relatively small comet has broken into even smaller, even less significant, chunks of dust and ice. This trail of piffling particles will remain on the same path as the original comet, completing its unexceptional swing through the inner solar system this fall.
io9 has been following some truly bizarre fringe theorists who think they know the TRUTH that NASA is trying to cover up. One is Alex Collier, whose theory is a mash-up of Christianity, Star Trek and sheer insanity. Collier has argued that the comet is actually a perfect cube, that the GOD of the Bible is actually an acronym for a Galactic Obliteration Device, and that Jesus was part of the Borg Collective.As usual, this theory comes with a rats nest of linked sites. io9 links to The Canadian National newspaper, which is very … how to say this politely … very Canadian. They link to the page of the Luciferian Liberation Front, who seem to have abducted their website from the year 1996. And these guys are about one full Time Cube:
The writers of Star Trek the Next Generation were being prophetic in their visions of the Borg ship when they portrayed it as a giant cube. The inspiration of the Lightbringer; Lucifer, is manifest in their attempts to show humanity the connection between the amorality of collectivism and the New Jerusalem but no one seems to be listening…until now.
My favorite part is how they describe how the Kingdom of Heaven is basically a Borg Cube:
When we dissect the cube of heaven we see that it is constructed like a living cell with its own system of energy circulation and metabolism.
