I read that in _5/5/2000_ a book about the coming cataclysm and how it is all foretold in geometry of the great pyramid in cheops. This event is also referred to in another book _the Ultimate Frontier_. In my largely uneducated opinion I think they are both bad Science Fiction. I do find it interesting that many people sems to require a doomsday scenario to find some kind of fulfillment. The belief is that the mass of the Antarctic Ice shelf in combination with the major planetary conjunction expected to occur on Cinco de Mayo this year will cause the Earth to shift on its axis with catastrophic consequences.
