Go back around to the year 1859, the Carrinton Event.  There was a massive solar 'protuberance' that caused metal to be hot to the touch and caused buildings to burn.
I don't know how many have been since 1859 that has happened if any.  But, in 2012 that would be about some years.  Now, do we have any recorded history of solar emissions such as that?  Maybe the one that hit the Eastern US again in 1965, that's 104 years.  There was a power grid downfall cascade that started in Canada not too long ago.
But, we don't know if the warning are real or just memories that recur.
I think it is memories that haunt.

September 2, 1859 Event
•Rochester NY -“Some who saw the display attributed it to fires in the towns about.”

Had to change the dates around and correct some errors.  Probly made more though.

Not really the end is it?
Humans can survive a minor 100 year set back. I live in a hunting and camping community we'll barely be effected. Just means no more fussy eating mmmm Squirrel. no wait we can eat our pets so we dont have to share food.

True Scientists consider all possibilities until they have evidence stating otherwise.
the others are idiots simply waiting for proof of existence.

Theoretically, my pet is an excellent hunting animal*. I'd go in 50/50 with him rather than eat him.

      There's a wonderful early 1950s science fiction novel, Jerry Sohl's COSTIGAN'S NEEDLE, which postulates that if you take several thousand highly-intelligent humans and suddenly thrust them into an entirely new environment (in this novel, a variant dimension) with abundant natural resources, that within a year or two they'll be spinning wire and making glass and within three or four years have re-invented radio and television.

Just want to say, this is where the glory of being a rural folk comes it. thumbsup.gif I sort of hope it happens. Boy, talk about human population control! wink2.gif Just what we'd need.

Edit to add: I hope that we don't reinvent things for a good long time. :/ It'll be obvious if/after this occurs it's not a necessity. Maybe it'll teach people something.

I think this world could do with a bit of a shake-up. Remind people what's truly important. And if I die, I just hope it's quick.

Attributed it to fires, not attributed fires to it. I'm not seeing the bit about metal getting hot anywhere either.

I have doubts of this.
1. Solar storms happen quite often.
2. This would be aggravating for modern civilization but I don't think it would takes much of a toll off the population and certainly won't destroy the Earth.
3. The Aztec calender had no prophecy's about this.

Who exactly "predicted" an apocalypse for 2012?  A calendar ending ain't exactly a prediction.

Probably because its the Mayan calender that ends in 2012.

Heh, yeah, I remember this one, it's in Nicolas Cage's newest movie, Knowing. Only it doesn't happen exactly on 2012, but then again they didn't exactly give a date for the flare. In the end, the Rapture isn't of the faithful masses of *Snip* Christians, but a crap load of children. Which would make more sense, since children have a vast scape of understanding, will not at first, but they do, so the movie ends with earth being burned to a crisp, the children leaving, and Cage's character finally knowing, persay.

hahahahaha...i was thinking of this movie reading this thread, the OP should of put "Knowing" spoiler in the title

It had to be ruined, it's a great movie, but should of been watched at the movies, and ignored during the release to dvd, as all would and should do so. Yes the theatres worldwide got gay, with the whole rent a seat for two hours idea, but lets remember folks at least if we watch them in the theatres, we won't have to go to the movie rentals to get it for an antagonizing day or two. GO TO THE MOVIES AND WATCH, just don't rent it, that whole rent dvd's thing is a scam of all arts and forms.


EA


this movie was far from great...honestly it was real good till the very end, it ruined the whole movie completely...its like taking a hot chick out to dinner and back at the house you and her have a drink and things get hot and then she tells you she has her period, great night but ruined right when the best part was suppose to happen
