"Astronomers had known the asteroid was coming and said there was no risk of collision. Other asteroids have been known to pass by closer to our planet. And, of course, sometimes the slam into us. Car-sized objects streak into our atmosphere several times a year. Most burn up in the atmosphere or land in the ocean (the planet surface is two-thirds water).http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29470290/
Asteroids as big as the 1908 Tunguska object that devastated the Siberian forest might strike Earth as often as once every two centuries, scientists speculate. As space rocks enter Earth's atmosphere, smaller ones can break apart or explode before hitting the surface. If one were to strike or explode above a city, the results would be locally devastating."
Just a random event?
Or is it a warning from some higher force to us?
I suppose I believe in some form of spirituality. The way that I view an incident like this, is God, a higher power is warning us all that we are truly a spec in this universe.
We were brought in by those forces and we can go away just as fast. And all of us live on it, like it or not.
Even the fallen 'chosen people' too who are being warned by in my opinion, many gods. All of whom are telling them that they are not the conquerers of this world, and are in fact just as fragile & human
as the rest of the people they so live among.
