I have been wondering why there has been so little news about "the great Red Nova of 2022" for well over a year. Now we know .. they have been sitting on a mistake ... a mistake they have just decided to correct publicly now. WONDERFUL! Self-correcting and late as hell.
For those of us in the prophecy interpretation business this event, now to be a non-event, was extremely important. It explained what appeared to be a lull in apocalyptic events and the potential for a world war until at least 2021 or 2022 or even 2023. It's appearance would have coincided with Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey beginning a super war in the Middle East as prophesied by Daniel in the Old Testament. Now all bets are off!! The worst things imaginable CAN happen as early as next month! Yes, World War III, beginning as a Cuban missile crisis type of situation (in this case maybe Syria and Israel or, more likely, in the South China Sea or over the two Koreas or North Korea and Japan) could end up not being resolved diplomatically as it was in 1962 and turn into a full-on nuclear war! Or the Middle East could experience a Kosovo-like war next year, one involving the entire region from the Mediterranean to the Indian peninsula, from Turkey to Yemen, leading to World War III in spring 2020. Yikes!
I was starting to enjoy a little vacation from pronouncing potential peril and doom, especially with other problems consuming my time, my life, and my attention. But now we, the human race, are in incredible danger ... possibly very soon.
It would have been nice to know this stellar spectacular was not going to happen a year ago.
In closing, why so many blunders by astronomers and NASA since the year 2000??? Back in the 1960's, 1970's, 1980's, and 1990's they were so spot on about everything (except Halley's Comet lackluster performance in 1986). During the last 18 years space scientists have been consistently wrong about every stellar event imaginable for the exception of solar and lunar eclipses and the close opposition of Mars in 2003 and this year. Forget the rest!
Or is this news event a false report ... are we being lied to by a different community for other purposes????
