A team of scientists at MIT have developed a computer program that will help humans decide how to best deal with the end of the world, so long as that comes in form of a catastrophic asteroids colliding.
Scientists and other unsaved intellectual are a curious lot of people, on one hand they are smart almost beyond measure, and on the other, dumb as a box of rocks. I say that with charity, and let me tell you why. When the God of the Bible begins to physically judge this fallen world, using literal asteroids and other atmospheric phenomena from the Outer Space He created, it’s going to shock the Hell out of the inhabitants of the Earth. This in spite of the fact that His warnings that this particular judgment was coming has been in print now for nearly 2,000 years. How dumb can you be to miss that? Yet, here we are with MIT scientists using AI to prevent it. That’s funny.
“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” Revelation 6:12-17 (KJB)
We look back on Noah’s day, the period the bible scholars call the ‘prediluvian ancient world‘ of 6,000 years ago, and we look with pity on the poor, backwards people not smart enough to heed Noah’s 120-year long warning that judgment was coming. Yet, here in the streamlined 21st century, with AI, pre-crime, smart devices, rocket ship travel and all the rest of it, man hasn’t gotten one bit smarter where it counts.
“Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” Acts 16:29-31 (KJB)
God’s judgment on this world in Revelation cannot be stopped, no amount of repenting, good deeds or prayer will stop on iota of it, but you can do something about it. You can miss it completely by getting saved right now, and being part of that joyous throng who will be removed from off this Earth in the Pretribulation Rapture. The best part is, it takes no brain power or intelligence at all as men count intelligence. You just have to humble your self before the Lord and ask Him to save you. His word promises He will save all who call upon Him and believe in His name. How about it, MIT geniuses, want something better than your silly AI solutions that will in no wise work? It’s free, take it.
The aim is to use AI to keep the asteroids from entering a gravitational keyhole
FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Experts say there as many as two or three new asteroids, sometimes called ‘Near Earth Objects,’ discovered every night.
It’s inevitable that one of these asteroids will eventually end drifting into a collision course with Earth. ‘People have mostly considered strategies of last-minute deflection, when the asteroid has already passed through a keyhole and is heading toward a collision with Earth,” Sung Wook Paek, of MIT’s Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, told MIT News.
‘I’m interested in preventing keyhole passage well before Earth impact. It’s like a preemptive strike, with less mess.’
Paek’s team designed the program to evaluate the mass, momentum, trajectory, and time before projected impact to aid humans with the high-stakes decision making involved in averting global catastrophe.
The crux of the decision comes down to something called a gravitational keyhole, a point in space where an asteroid’s orbital path would have it pass into Earth’s gravitational field and gradually circle its way down to the planet surface.
If asteroids can be detected before reaching this point, they can be redirected with minor changes in course—sometimes as little as a few centimeters per second. Yet, with the stakes so high and the windows for success so narrow, there’s little room for human error or hesitation.
The computer came up with a variety of different approaches depending on the amount of time left.
In one simulation where there was five years left before passing through its gravitational keyhole, the simulation sent two scout ships, one to meet the asteroid and measure its exact dimensions and another to nudge it slightly.
Afterward, a full sized impactor vessel was launched to push it all the way off course.
In another simulation, where there was less than a year left before the asteroid entered its keyhole, Paek said, it would be too late for scouts, and just sending a kinetic impactor might not reach the asteroid before it passed through. READ MORE

Sung Wook Paek, lead author of a paper appearing in the journal Acta Astronautica this month, said people have mostly considered strategies of last-minute deflection, when an asteroid is heading toward a collision with Earth.

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 13,131 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,781 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 14,500 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
