1. Mayan one
I personally do not believe in either of these things. However, I find myself at a loss on how to 'explain' this to a few pple who seemingly think I really should believe 12.21.12 is the 'end'.
I ask if any of you can help me here.
1. One of my friends insists that the heavens are going to align.. yada yada you all know the rest..
I just want to know this, *if* this thing is true, would we not already begin seeing the 'planets' and such align? If so, what shoudl be we seeing now that would prove the truth.. and umm.. the earths magnetic core changing.. surely we would see something happening already? I hate just looking at her and saying 'you know how stupid you sound?' i would actually like to give her something to 'see' if her scenario was correct.
and 2. OMG.. I had no idea pple still really seriously believed in Nibiru coming to put an end to us on 12/21/12. until one boy was in lunch room arguing up and down that the planet is coming, and will kill us all, yadda yadda yadda... (I call him boy, he is in his 20's, what can I say, age diff here). All anyone there could say 'if it were really that close to being here by dec 21, we would see It by now, and he insists with all this weird weather, earth quakes, as well as the sun spots and such.. we tried to tell him that this is all basically normal as we know it from 'recorded history to today', he was just very very insistant..
the thing is.. IF such a thing was going to happen.. WHAT would be the signs we would most definitely be showing that would prove it?
Maybe it sounds weird, but I would like to at least SEEM smart here, and not just say 'you know how stupid all this sounds?'.. and actually have something decent to say that proves they are wrong..
anyone here can answer this? In either case, what would we be seeing NOW, this close to dec 21 that would prove that we nay sayers are wrong?
If we cannot see the facts that should be there, for all to see.. to make their case correct.. then they are wrong.
That is my logic of it.
Thanks in advance for any answers
Adding this on as an edit.. is it me, is it just me.. or is it mostly the younger people who are so anxious to believe in the end of the world doomsday stuff? (i know, exceptions, older generations do believe, just in my experience it seems more the young).. I wonder this because at my job site, from january through june.. when it is just us full timers.. and many have been there like me from 8 years to 40!... when we are in the lunch room we talk bout the latest news events, or the menfolk will go on and on about sports, or we talk about some tv show we just love to hate or a good book.. but from aug to december, when our job hires 100+ seasonal/temps, and the majority are high school kids to upper 20's.. the discussions seem to move away from what we older ones are into, and suddenly we are thrust into these doomsday things, or discussions about the lastest image on the moon or mars that means aliens were there! the topics swing more when the younger are there, and this yr it seems to be doomsday doomsday
this could just be my imagination.. JUST wondered if anyone else noticed.
