    I get slightly annoyed when I receive E-mails regarding religious prophecies, and doomsday fear mongering, but this takes the cake! Today I got this beauty, with no mention of a valid, reputable site to check, in fact it takes NASA's name in vain ... I would like to talk about this, as well the 2012 prophecy. I am posting the email, I am leaving out the Arabic writing because I don't think too many people with understand the Arabic text. Bring on the facts, opinions, and any other input pertaining to these subjects.

    Nasa - Sunrise from the West
    The science of astronomy states that the speed of planet Mars has been decreasing in its course toward the eastern direction in the past few weeks to the level we notice the "waver" between the east and the west..and on Wednesday the 30th of July the planet movement stopped going toward the eastern direction.. Then in the months of August and September... Mars changed its course in the opposite direction to the West- and that until the end of September..which means the sun will rise now from the west on Mars!! And this weird phenomena of the opposite movement called "Retrograde Motion" Most scientist state that all the planets will go through the same once at least and our planet Earth is one of them. Planet Earth will move in the opposite direction some day and the sun will rise from the west!!

    This might occur soon and we are unaware! The rise of the sun from the west is mentioned in the hadith and this is the major sign of the day of judgment, most if not All, the minor signs have occurred. Wake up.

    Our beloved messenger Mohamed (Peace Be Upon Him) said: "One of the signs of the hour..the sun will rise from the west, where no longer tauba(forgiveness) will be granted" !!And the strange thing..most of our Shariah scholars mentioned that the rise of the sun from the west occurs only once..on that day..the sun will rise from the west..then again from the east..and continues until Allah wishes..and this is similar to what is happening to Mars..it stops, then it changes its course of direction for a short period of time..then returns to way once it was.

    because religion's original (and current, mind you) purpose was control. And, the most effective method for control seems to be a combination of fear and promise of unattainable rewards.

    Well now, I've seen some people posting on forums, people who claimed they were 'scientific', even some of them claiming and perhaps having a degree in science, who posted the most humogouslty unscientific crap imaginable.

    Now I didn't go around thinking, or saying, or writing that this showed science was a manipulative load of codswallop, no ma'm. I just said (and thought) what a jerk.

    By the same token that there piece of nonsense you quoted has nothing whatsoever to do with religion, regardless of how much the person who wrote it may think it does and I would think any sincere, thoughtful religious person would be as offended by it as you are.

    This is not a mock site either they actually believe it.

    A logician saves the life of a tiny space alien. The alien is very grateful and, since she's omniscient, offers the following reward: she offers to answer any question the logician might pose. Without too much thought (after all, he's a logician), he asks: "What is the best question to ask and what is the correct answer to that question?" The tiny alien pauses. Finally she replies, "The best question is the one you just asked; and the correct answer is the one I gave."
