For 2,000 years, the Mayan Calendar has predicted the end of humanity on a date equating to December 21, 2012. Now a new book, PHOBOS: Mayan Fear, by NY Times best-selling author Steve Alten describes two very real ticking time bombs of Mother Nature that could be triggered by the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, either one of which would fulfill the prophesy.
The first threat comes from a volcano on La Palma, one of the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa, the eruption of which would cause a massive landslide into the Atlantic that would unleash a 3,000-foot-high mega-tsunami. Scientists state such a wave would travel across the Atlantic at the speed of an airliner before decimating the east coast of the United States, leveling New York, Boston, and Miami.
The second major event described in the book is far more devastating -- the long overdue eruption of the Yellowstone Caldera, a super-volcano packing the equivalent of ten thousand Mt. Saint Helens. Besides the widespread devastation and destruction, the eruption would blanket the Earth's atmosphere, cutting off the sun's rays and leading to a 100,000-year Ice Age.
PHOBOS: Mayan Fear links these events with seismic disturbances caused by the release of a stranglet – a miniature black hole created by the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva. While CERN physicists contend that these black holes are too small to threaten the Earth, others disagree, including one physicist who concurred with the catastrophic threats described in Alten’s book.
