the end of the world?

I'm just curious what other people think of this...my mother and sister both seem to be quite convinced that the end of the world will be in 2012 after watching all of these shows on the history channel and also because of the strange/extreme weather patterns we've had lately. I haven't seen any of these shows so I don't really have an opinion on it but they talk about it a lot. Anyone else have any thoughts on this?


Life is a ticket to the greatest show on earth.

Here's how I see it - if pre-destination is real and the world really is pre-destined to end in 2012.... then it ends. What can you do to 'prepare' for the end of the world? Nothing....

Except maybe buy a space shuttle off the black market and find another planet to inhabit.

Alex,

30 isn't so bad. People at work actually start taking you seriously. I kinda like it.

Yeah I'm looking forward to being taken seriously. That might be fun. Although I'm a woman so they won't take me seriously til 40.

is that still true? it isn't where I work... but then IT is different, if you're a woman and not a total moron you end up in management by 35.

I just think the Mayans got tired of making their calendar. After all, we only produce calendars for the current year; they did it for centuries ahead of their time. At some point, I bet they just stopped and figured the project wasn't worth working on anymore. Maybe they figured nobody would be around by that time. It is pretty hard to contemplate life way into the future.

The fifth and final age of man according to the Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012, so this is a really good year to wait until the last moment to do your Christmas shopping.

A couple other cosmic events happen on that day as well- 1st- When viewed from the Earth, the Sun will lineup precisely in the middle of the milky way galaxy, and second the Earth will finish it's 26,000 year wobble. This is not from the Mayans, but only recently discovered from modern scientists. Archaeologists believe the end date predicted by the Mayans and this cosmic event are not likely coincidental since they had a very advanced understanding of astronomy, and nothing they did seemed random.

According to the Mayans, each "age" of man has ended in destruction for man, and that time basically just repeats itself. this time however, it's over for good. It is thought by 2012ers that the last age ended with the last major Ice age, which may have been the result of a massive platonic shift, suddenly moving North America from the North Pole south. This massive shift in temperature caused sudden melting of the ice that resulted in a great flood that destroyed the last highly advanced society.

They believe this because many of the ancient artifacts- Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids for example seem to involve technology that is far too advanced and precise to have been performed by the people who lived in the era commonly associated with their construction. I've read that these dates have been based on Carbon Dates from artifacts around them, but not from them since they are made of stone and you cannot accurately carbon date stone. So basically, the Egyptions were just squatters.

There are events said to be accurately predicted by the Mayans, -- 9/11 for example

"--Great Birds will come from the sky and end a great city to the north at 9/11/01."

Then there are some vague references that people think describe the revelutionary war, the French bastille, hitler, the civil war, even that they mistook Cortez for the returning of their Pale faced god who was do back home at the time the Spanish arrived to desimate them.

Interesting stuff. My mother is a hard core believer in this. There is a much much deeper sort of conspiracy about this that has to do with our government, the Iraq war, etc, etc.

Oh, please! 30 is nothing. I still hadn't peaked. Now 40 was a different story. :lol:

It's our only hope.

Otherwise, on the positive side, I'll never have to see 30.

I doubt it - its a bit too Eric Von Daniken for my tastes.

Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" seems to be pretty accurate as far as end of the world scenarios go - after all the food is gone, people start eating each other.
