Im pretty fricken sick of everyone freaking out about this 2012 crap. Nostradamus (dont care if i spelled that right) predicted the end of the world would be on may 5, 1999 and nothing happened. Everyone wants something to happen. everyone wants to believe that they will see the apocalypse and be one of the ones saved. Its kind of funny that because the mayan calendar ends in 2012 everyone freaks and thinks the world will end. THINK ABOUT THIS the MAYANS. how long ago were they around? A LONG TIME AGO. and it's even a fricken shock that they planned out the calendar that far in the future. do you really think they predicted the end? how do you know they didn't just go,"okay, i think that's pretty far enough in the future don't you think paco?" like come oooonnnnnn

im gonna laugh when nothing happens.

doesn't anyone remember y2k? that didn't happen.

Now they have a movie coming out. All this hype about this stupid **** is all for money. Don't you see the greedy pigs scaring you so they can stuff their faces some more with ridiculous possessions while REAL people are struggling to live and feed their families and keep their homes. It's pretty sad.

if the world does end on 2012 so be it. who gives a ****. People only give a **** about the earth when it threatens their daily life.

i say forget these stupid predictions and just live your damn lives. and i won't see that movie or pay for it. I won't contribute the hype and paranoia. and if anyone starts going crazy thinking the world is gonna end and comes to my house trying to steal **** or kill some one because there is no tomorrow. i will defend myself accordingly. sitting on the porch with a shotgun, a cigarette, a joint, and a bottle of crown. that'll be me. and then illl laugh when nothing happens.

IT's pretty funny to think that everyone is selfish enough to think that they are special enough to see the end of the world. think about the billions of people that came before you. think of the billions of years before us.

just give that a little thought or two. ponder.

im not trying to offend anyone or attack anyone. this is just my personal belief.

anyway. thanks for reading. =]

i think all of this 2012 hype is being created to influence worldwide consciousness to actually create these catastrophes. As with everything in the media. Also in the commercials for 2012 there have been lots of new world order propaganda with lines like "if we stand apart we are weak but if we unite and fight together we might just survive" these kind've movies are just detrimental to human consciousness the more people that believe this propaganda the more likely these things will actually happen. Its just so disappointing that people will walk out the theater and be frightened of what they now think is very likely to happen. Also another movie coming out Planet 51 is attempting to humanize ****ing aliens!

Either way, december 5th 2012 is definitely gonna be an interesting day for all. It just makes me feel a bit worried for the ones that do take this too seriously and do something stupid like hurting another or themselves.
But as a side note out of my own paranoia's sake, ill probably be in doors for the day, to avoid the possible dangerous people running around that may be looting and what not and too also be, ya know, on the safe side sorta... AND THATS WHEN I HIT EM WITH THE BAT!!!! :P

But dont obviously forget that since people love to focus on the whole ending of humanity side of the story, that its really more like its a 1 of 2 possible outcomes. Either world destruction or world piece (i personally dont think we are close enough to either outcomes just yet). But as they say everything comes to an end and to always face the curtain with a bow.

Gradually, we are told, step by step, men produced the arts and crafts, this and that, until they emerged into the light of history. Those soporific words "gradually" and "step by step" repeated incessantly, are aimed at covering an ignorance which is both vast and surprising.

  • just because a million people believe in a stupid thing, doesn't stop it being a stupid thing

Posted 17 November 2009 - 05:58 AM

silly......have you actually read the Prophecies of Nostradamus or just read what the newspapers and internet say about it?  Our French friend (Pierre de Nostradame) predicted "the end of the world as we know it"..... note the important three words as we know it we can't witness the change of the world as we know it if we're not around to notice the change can we?  

2012 is the end of an Age of the world; not the end of the world.  The world will change and the human race will also change; or at least the change will begin, but the human race will endure for some time yet.  I can say with some authority that the world will continue past at least 2021; nine years after 2012....

what this change will be, I have no idea but I hope humans will change for the better..

Nostradamus never mentioned a specific date for anything, its only those that translate the quatrains that apply a date to the prediction.

The Maya did believe in the cyclical nature of time, of different "worlds", and that we are supposed to be entering into the Fifth world, this is a common belief amongst the different mesoamerican cultures, aswell as native americans (though many of them disagree on the number of worlds we've entered into already). These "worlds" were just their way to categorize the different ages of their own societies. The only vague predictions attached to these "worlds" was that we'd slowly travel further on our journey, become more advanced, more understanding of the world, more spiritual etc, quite basic stuff really. Current Native Americans, such as the Hopi, believe  that in this next world, we'll all start to live in harmony with the earth and stop destroying it, and thats the kind of 2012 prediction i could definately get on board with.

that's the kind of prediction i could live with too. I'm Blackfoot Native American. One of my biggest pet peeves is ignorance of the state of our earth. I do everything I can to use renewable resources and recycle everything that i can.

Yeah, fighting for your life against a horde of mindless near-unstoppable cannibals is always "fun".  :P  While the movie/game concept of grabbing lots of guns and a samurai sword and going all out guns blazing sounds like a hoot, in reality, everybody just ends up dead, at the hands of zombies, suicide, or at the hands of other survivors who've inevitably gone crazy due to the pointlessness of existance in a doomed world. Yeah, when you start to look at how it would really play out, it stops being "fun". We can't all be Ashley J. Williams unfortunately.  B)

Dwarf, the human race needs to do something before it's too late; I couldn't agree more!!  My thought is that this new world or age will be one of spiritual (not religious) awakening and, through that a realisation of the interconnectedness of all things in the universe, therefore the foolishness of distroying our environment and other life.  Of course people will also realise the foolishness already carried out in decimating the peoples who followed this belief, unmolested, for thousands of years before we "enlightened" folks turned up.....I just hope that happens!
