How do you know where that safe area will be, if you don't know what will happen?

Well I was skeptic about the end of the world but for sure I'm now convince it's the end of France now that a certain NL has been elected;

Bye bye France

Yeah something like that, however it offers no protection against other disasters, just the end of the world.

The real bizarre thing is, these people aren't believing what the Mayans have predicted cos they didn't predict anything in particular.  These people are believing what the scaremongers of this generation are selling as the "bonafide" translation of the Mayan Calendar - bunch of snake oil salesmen IMO, giving archeologists and sociologists/historians a bad name.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

What is really weird is the fact the Mayan calendar is compared to the Gregorian one which is based on nothing.

I'm having trouble understanding what you're trying to say here.

Are you claiming Mayans are inferior because they didn't have TV sets, and performed human sacrifices in their culture?

And that this had anything to do with something they wrote down, which was translated (who knows how accurately) years later by other people, creating loose theories, which became grandiose theories once people who could sell advertising time and movies about it caught on to the idea?

This isn't the first time you've called a culture simpleton savages, who supposedly set out to tell us all that the world is ending in 2012. You're buying a story that people are selling you, and directing your ill thoughts in the complete wrong direction.

"I think there may be "ghost phenomenon" that may be still not fully understood or dismissed, but that doesn't make it spirits of the dead, anymore than "UFO" means "spaceship" or even "UFO" or "spaceship" is directly related to aliens, or anything else. There is way too much assumption and a baseless reliance on anecdotal lore, like when people assert this or that about the spirit world or the astral plane or Ouija board demons, or religion. I say 'says WHO?'" - Paranormalcy
