There are people who are ignorant of facts and there are people such as Alexander Retrov (Trevor Alexander) who prey upon the gullibility of these people.
Were I a wealthy man I would make it my mission in live to seek these people out and silence them using the power of the legal systems since what they are doing is in my opinion fraudulent, and is criminal. There is enough going on in daily life and enough things that people have to content with without listening to this complete and utter bull.
Much as it pains me to do this, take a look at this video – but be aware that nothing in it is true. Not one single bit of it will come to pass.
UNFORTUNATELY THE VIDEO HAS BEEN REMOVED BY THE USER SO YOU CANNOT VIEW IT HERE. WONDER WHY?
So going through the points.
“There is a little comet called Elenin”. Yes, remember that, a LITTLE comet. No more than 5km across before it broke up. (Wonder what the idiot has to say about that then?)
“Every time this LITTLE comet is in alignment with our planet and either the Sun or some other body there’s a major earthquake.” No, Elenin cannot have any effect on the Earth – it is just too small.
“Now vibrational harmonics…..” Ah yes the introduction of a technical sounding term based on the principle that bullshit baffles brains. No mention of how these ‘harmonics’ are supposed to work.
He then proceeds to show Elenin aligning on the dates of recent major earthquakes. By the way anyone spot he got the Magnitude of the Chile quake wrong. It was 8.8 not 9.5. The 9.5 earthquake was in 1960 when, guess what, Elenin was not around. Where was Elenin in 1964, or any other major earthquake dates.
Then he says there will be another major earthquake on the 17th August. As we know in hind sight that was completely wrong. There was a 6.1, not a major quake, and it was not between Alaska and San Francisco – it was off Honshu, Japan. I note he says “I am being told”. He is either using this as the old “No not me, I am being told this so it must be real” scam or he should change his advisers!
Then he explains that the next alignment is on Sep 26th. Quite how this poor LITTLE broken up comet is going to achieve all that he says is totally and utterly beyond all belief.
“The whole Pacific Rim will go”. OK, where is it going and what do you refer to as that Pacific rim? All of it? No, not possible.
“Magnitude 12 to 15 earthquakes.” Now this piece of sensationalist claptrap just goes to show that he has absolutely no understanding of the earthquake magnitude scales at all or the faulting mechanism.
With the largest earthquake in recorded history being the 9.5 in Chile in 1960, it is worth noting that a Magnitude 10 earthquake, yes 10 not 12 or over, is 5.62 times stronger than a 9.5.
A magnitude 15 were such a thing possible would be 1,000,000 times stronger than a magnitude 11. This pratt has no understanding of the logarithmic scale of earthquakes and is just bandying numbers around for the scare factor. This is wrong, so very very wrong. Yes there will be major earthquakes – by which I mean over 8.5 magnitude, and maybe one day there will be a 9.5 again but it will not be because of any alignment with a small and insignificant comet.
This page gives you an idea of what the fault area would have to be to accommodate just a mag 12 – let alone a mag 15. The total surface area of the Earth is 5.1×10 pwr 8 km2. 510,000,000 km sq. A mag 12 would be about 1/5th of the total surface area of the Earth. At magnitude 13 he runs out of options as the approximate rupture area would be 1,000,000,000 km sq – or about twice the surface area of the Earth.
By the way the geologists say that anything over a Magnitude 10 is not possible as there is no know fault system sufficiently large enough to create an earthquake of that magnitude. Personally I would put 10.5 as the absolute maximum possible under very extreme circumstances.
Having said insignificant I should also add, and I am NOT scaremongering here, that a direct hit from Elenin (which is not going to happen) would be catastrophic. She is big enough to cause a world wide ‘nuclear winter’ for months.
Anyway on we go. A cosmic shock wave. Sounds good. What is it? Why, or indeed how, would a LITTLE comet produce it?
“When this object goes across the sky it is going to cause an eclipse that will last at least three days”
The moon is 3,474.8 kilometres wide and can only eclipse the Sun for a few minutes. Just exactly how in terms of celestial mechanics is a 5 km wide comet going to manage this feat?
“Pyroclastic blasts going everywhere”. Mm, I always thought they were pyroclastic flows, but leaving that aside, – going everywhere? No the terms sounds good and most people have heard of it and know it is scary so use it for good effect regardless of whether it is possible or not.
“Wind speeds over 1000 miles and hour”. And where exactly are these going to come from stupid?
“Surface temperatures of 60 degrees plus”. I guess El Stupido has no idea that some people still work in Fahrenheit. That revelation on temperature is not going to impress Americans for example.
Ash, wild fires etc – sounds like another nuclear winter coming on.
I understand that this person is a so called ‘channeller’, which as far as I am concerned is just a mechanism to twist things round so that as I said above, the message does not come from him, but from a ‘higher’ being/power etc. The patently obvious fraud in this approach does not fool me for one second. I have no doubt that some people do see ‘visions’ and hear ‘voices’. I believe there is a medical term for that.
I do not however believe for one minute that this person is in that league. This is set up to make money. He claims he is the reincarnation of Akhenaten (known before the fifth year of his reign as Amenhotep IV) and supposedly the father of King Tut. Odd isn’t it that none of these charlatans are a reincarnation of an ordinary person. No it has to be a King or Queen or suchlike.
Now he says in this video below that he got the information for the above twaddle 2 years ago but did not have any scientific data to back it up. (Yuk, you might have to listen – sorry it is quite long.)
So his failed predictions are because he did not ask SOURCE for the years. How very convenient.
I just wish I did not have to listen to this rubbish in order to debunk it. Key dates 26th Aug, Sep 9, 11 SHTF 26th. 3/4 of world’s population dead in a few hours.
He goes on to say “Don’t believe a word I say…..”. Right – very sound advice. Don’t believe one single word this charlatan says.
Sorry, had to stop listening – just too long winded and full of brown stuff – excrement.
My guess is we will still be here on the 27th – if for no other reason that he is booking dates for his 2012 world tour! Obviously he does not believe his own twaddle then.
And a trip to Egypt just in the period he says everything is going to go wrong.
Dates: Saturday Sept 10 – Sept 23 (Flights out of Australia Sept 9)
Investment: ~AU $1975 not including International airfares. (We may be able to negotiate a group discount for airfares out of Melbourne, depending on numbers – Current cost ~ $2100-$2400).
The price includes all internal Egyptian airfares and other internal transport. It also includes full board on the Felucca and most breakfasts in other accommodation. There is a possible that the price may go down depending on numbers and our ongoing negotiations with our Egyptian associates and international airlines.
Don’t believe me? Take a look at this site I just found which does a detailed job of debunking this fraud.
Note also that on his website he says “will not be contactable in ANY way after Sept 9“. Wonder why that is. Because of the end of the world, or to avoid being arrested or otherwise dealt with? Oh silly me, of course – he is in Egypt waiting to return to rule the world as Akhenaten in the flesh.
UPDATE: So now we have the excuses and the threats and the pathetic attempts to wriggle out of the failure. He is now trying to turn it round in a supercilious attempt to make him out to be a better person than everyone else.
He steers the topic away from his failure. You sort of feel the need to get out the violins.
The best part is that the reason the date was wrong. “The purpose of the date being wrong was so that peoples true nature would be exposed.”
Say that to yourself a few times and then consider if I am being unreasonable if I consider that to be in extremely bad taste – and in light of the DVD sales (even though he say there were not many) I believe that statement to indicate that it was an intentional fraud.
“To those of you who have gone on the attack, it’s not me you are attacking, it’s yourself”. Mm, an interesting piece of deflective and fallacious logic there Retrov. No it is you and your cock and bull stories we are attacking and the fact that you now openly admit that it was wrong, and that it was intended to be so.
He then threatens those who have acted in a defamatory manner saying they will be hearing from his lawyers. Well indeed so they should, but many I have seem have not been defamatory but have pointed out the obvious flaws in his theories. Where also is the money coming from to pay for this action since [cue violins] he has sold everything and given it away [end violins].
Have to rush off and get a hanky….. *sniff* *sniff*
UPDATE: 22 July 2012. We seem to have survived so far but i just went to have a look at this pratt’s site again and he still has all the tripe about Elenin being a brown dwarf and NASA tracking it. He must be incredibly dense if it has not sunk in yet that Elenin was indeed a comet, not a brown dwarf, and it has broken up and is no more. I suppose it is hard to admit that the linchpin of your twaddle has gone.
Not sure when this was written on his front page The events WILL happen – when? The next 6 weeks may well have many people eating their words. But how many will be able to shift what is in their hearts? but i am guessing well over 6 weeks ago. Today is 22 July so let us see in 6 weeks from now just to give him the benefit of the doubt.
