Or December 11.

of course, you could say exactly the same for 01/02/03, , 02/03/04, 03/04/05, 04/05/06, 05/06/07, 06/07/08, 07/08/09, 08/09/10, etc, ad infinitum, and ad nauseum.

One of my co-worker's pointed out that this year can have it's own apocalypse date as well. (Yes, I know, this doesn't work for everywhere, I know date's are set up differently from region to region, still, it's fun to mess with this stuff ;3)

You can't strike prophetic gold twice. 11/12/13 is nifty but as Lord V pointed out this does happen every year in some combination.

Now 11/22/33 are all "Master Numbers" lol.

So who here has any actual information on this new doomsdate (sic)?

If not who here believes in "Master Numbers" lol. I don't but someone please tell me more, and not just what "Master Numbers" are, please I can google that myself, but how their power is tied in relation to this 11/22/33 date.

For those who don't believe in all this, you are in good company, but for those who don't believe and want to be harsh to others, well you are in good company too but I am not part of that company. Take your rotten attitudes, cyncical skeptics, and go away. This is supposed to be fun, what if, and a celebration of our own prophetess Hasina.

Our calendar is entirely arbitrary.  When the Western Christian calendar was being devised, because it was a Christian scholar who invented the calendar, he naturally took an important date in Christianity as the starting point for their calendar, the year of Christ's birth, and called it 1 Anno Domini (year of our Lord) and calculated it was X years after Christ's birth so set X as the current year and we've been using that system in the West since then.  However, it is now known that he was off by a few years and so the date of Jesus's birth is now reckoned by historians to be between 2 - 6BC (before Christ, which is a bit confusing) but the system has been set in place for so long that we just stick with it.

So, the year 2033 doesn't really mean anything.  It's not actually 2033 years after anything that could reasonably set as "year 0".  If you were to recalibrate the calendar according to the actual birth of Christ, 2033 would become anything from 2035 - 2039 AD (as the exact year of Christ's birth isn't known).

This is of course ignoring that fact that there is nothing special about the Western Christian calendar.  It's year 1434 in the Muslim calendar (which is lunar based and thus years don't align with the solar calendar, but there is also a Muslim solar calendar in which it is currently year 1391).  Their is also a Jewish Calendar, the ancient Mayan calendar that sparked all this new age end of the world stuff, and plenty of others.

There's also the issue that our idea when the year starts being entirely arbitrary.  A year is an orbit of the earth around the sun.  The earth traces a big circle around the sun which takes a year to complete (by definition).  But a circle has no start or finish, therefore any time during the year long cycle could be chosen as the start of the year.  Nothing happens on January 1st other than it is the date that was chosen to be the start of the year.  The summer solstice or winter solstice could have been chosen, or one of the equinoxes, or any other date.

And the same issue comes up with the fact that the months and their days are arbitrary, look at the numbers of days in each month - 31, 28 (29 sometimes!), 30, 31, 30, etc. - 11/22/33 will be 22

And there's again the issue that it's only 11/22/33 if you're from certain places.  Here in Europe, we will call that date 22/11/33 because we order days/months/years instead of months/days/years.

So again, on 11/22/33 it won't actually be 11 months after anything that marks the start of a year.  Just like the fact that it is different years in different calendar systems, different calendars celebrate new years on different dates.

The point of all this?  11/22/33 is an entirely arbitrary date from one of many different arbitrary calendar systems which has their own quirks and oddities and that is flawed to begin with (year 1 in the Western calendar is known to be wrongly dated) that happens to look vaguely interesting if you're an American.   It means absolutely nothing.

Not your forum.

Unless the forum administrators have an issue with what I'm saying, I'll post wherever and whatever I please.

If you don't like that new age quackery is easy and fun to debunk and people are willing to do so, that's your problem.

It is never a "rotten attitude" to critically examine a claim or subject, and to voice your honest opinion based upon an honest look at what you have learned.

Master Numbers only are relevant, if you believe in that numerology nincompoopery. If you see the amount of "special dates" like 06/06/06 or 07/07/07 or even 09/09/09 that have already passed and turned out not special at all....

Oh and to the last part of your statement, I can only answer : No, I stay, I like it here. besides I might be sceptic, I'm however not cynical......well not all the time anyway  :innocent:

There needs to be a 'bull****ology' section for things like this...

2450 packets of cigs?  Which food group is that exactly?
