The Moonlandings were faked and other nonsense

Are we short 10 million victims today?

Eric Julien has been making "psychic" claims about a piece of comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 slamming into Earth on May 25. It was supposed to hit in the Atlantic and cause huge tsunami that was to kill millions. Surprise of all surprises. It didn't happen. Another screwball frightens millions with pseudoscientific claims of disaster. Another end of the world event came and went without happening. Mr. Julien should be held accountable at some level for spreading this idiot nonsense - his gobbledegook prediction caused widespread panic in Morroco with folks abandoning their coastal homes in fear of the tsunami.

There's no shortage of wacko claims in this world, be it the the Zetas and Nancy Lieder's fictional Twelfth Planet, or Eric Julien's nonsense, the public should demand accountability. When a legitimate danger appears, many folks do not have the skills in critical thinking to distinguish it from the background buzz of pseudoscientific nonsense.

Once again, doomsday has come and gone.....
