Why is that, you think?



Information is beautiful,... here are the for and the against. Science VS pseudo-science. Skeptics VS Believers.  http://www.informati...d-of-the-world/

Believe you me, we will be laughing our butts off at these for many years.

I'm ready for Saturday so all of these threads will die.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

If only that was true.

I fear the dumb after-no-apocalypse threads. Silly theories beyond our worst nightmares. ;)

I don't believe anything will happen but skeptics and NASA themselves have been giving out misinformation as well.

Like the fact NASA said in their video that their calender works like a cars mileage meter, but instead of 9's it's 13000 or whatever the exact number is (it's 13 something they said) and when it hits that number it just starts again from 0 in a never ending circle. Well that  is wrong! lol

This Maya calender does end, then the next one begins and they go on for a very long time. BUT they are all DIFFERENT lengths, they do not work like the mileage clock on a car at all. I was completely shocked that NASA actually said that in their video they released the other day. Just as bad as the end of the world believers giving disinformation.


Anyway the Maya did also say at the end of this calender something will happen with the sun. Obviously if their next calender begins it doesn't mean the world will end, but it could mean there is some change. Might not even be noticeable or they where wrong. lol

But yes the Maya never said it was the end of the world, but NASA and others in the science community are also spreading false information which to me is just as bad. At least tell people the real facts and not some half assed attempt.



Anyway worst case scenario is that our Cell phones and stuff are knocked out for a day or 2. Which might actually be peaceful. lol Even though i could see people panicking, which brings me more onto this subject of NASA and the media handling this whole thing so badly.

If they told it how it was, with the real Maya prophecy etc with the sun and how our cell phones and comms could be knocked out for a while and the history channel etc didn't run all these stupid end of the world documentaries. Then maybe nobody would panic etc.

I blame the media mostly.

We all have our own doomsday.. it's called death.  If people knew the time of their own death, they wouldn't be concern about all those silly (or not) theories and worried more about living their life to the fullest.  But hey, who am I to judge.

After 60 seconds a new minute begins, after 60 minutes a new hour begins, after 24 hours a new day begins, after 7 days a new week begins, after 12 months a new year begins, after 1 year a new year begins, after 100 years a new century begins, after 1000 years a new millenium begins.

And what NASA said is only an attempt to educate the stupid and gullible, but apparently that wasn't even good enough.

You were "completely shocked"??

I got engaged tonight. It's been a long time coming and everybody thought the end of the world would come before I'd ask her. Wether that'll happen on Friday or not, everybody was wrong.

I was scared to death about Friday but it was just announced that Mitt Romney and Republican pollsters just came out and announced that the world ending Friday is a "sure thing."

I've got two things to say

1. Congratulations

2. What the hell you doing on the internet at a time like this?

Come friday night/ saturday morning believers will be searching news stories for one disaster or another so they can start and "oh this is clearly what the mayans were talking about" thread. And with over 400 natural disasters a year (according to EM-DAT) chances are they'll find something. If there wasn't a disaster it would probably be more statically significant.

I can't wait for all the 2012 hype to die down sometime next year.

That right there ismy exact reason I was shocked. Nasa shouldn't play stupid games, they should say it like it is. Then we wouldn't have all these people running around thinking it's the and of the world. So all you did was back up my point.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.
