If I remembered correctly Pythagoras was a few hundred years before Eratosthenes? And he was thought to have been one of the originators of the idea?
yep , you're right. it's believed that Pythagoras was one of the first persons in defending the idea, although his disciples thought the opposite , so it's quite confusing. The first person in adding scientific reasons was Aristoteles.
i want to add that Eratostenes made his experiment in the III century BC not in the I, my mistake.

could 5/11/2011 play a significant part of a catastrophe?

there's somewhat of a calculated method (from what i was told) that will be of great proportion awaits....

Furthermore, throwing in a few tarot cards and rolls of the dice should improve the scientific accuracy of such calculations.

Don't know if it was mentioned before, but the astrologists (however you precisely call it in English) are worried about this saturday, when the moon will be full and it's in the perigeum. The distance between the earth and the moon will only be 364.397 km.

People like to believe it influenced the disaster in Japan etc etc. Will raise the water and bladiebla. Choose to believe it but the moon will be 14% bigger so enjoy the view.

It is indeed ...

This is the first I've heard of the astrologists being concerned about the Full Moon this weekend ...

I posted about it a week ago, in an article that aimed for a scientific conclusion, but didn't want to entirely commit itself to stating the end of the world wouldn't happen:

Quote:
Most natural disasters have nothing to do with the moon at all. The Earth has a lot of pent up energy, and it releases it anytime the buildup gets too great. The supermoon probably won't push it past the tipping point, but we'll know for sure, one way or the other, by March 20.

That doesn't make it fact.

The fact is that humans will probably never know if the Universe has boundaries or a beginning or an end.
