Been far too long since we had a story from old Blather favourites Pravda, but this one’s a gem. According to our ever-reliable, entirely impartial and impeccably sceptical friends at Pravda, a Russian scientist named Yuriy Lavbin is claiming that the Tunguska Event (beloved of downed-UFO incident hunters) was the result of benevolent aliens blowing a meteorite out of the sky to save our skinny, miserable arses.
The meteoriteâ€™s crash took place long time ago, in summer of 1908. An enormous volcanic ball rushed over the sky with terrifying wallop and thunder-like sound. All the citizens were frightened to death and scared to move out of their houses. A flight of a â€œflamy alienâ€ ended up in an hour in deserted taiga area. In a matter of seconds an explosive wave spread for 40 kilometers, devastating everything living around.
Aliens downed Tunguska meteorite to save Earth
The Tunguska Event
Actually, there is an article called “Armchair Archeology” which is the most credible argument for the identity of the Tunguska Body that I have read. What if the Russians got a hold of this? It would instantly become a tourist mecca. The commies could capitalize.
I’m confused. Are you suggesting that the Tunguska Event was a portent of the End of Days?
actually the most likely cause is probably a freak environmental weather condition the results of the incident could not possibly have been created by a meteorite shot down or not.
