Or it could be the biggest coincidence of all time.

Also, to all those referencing Scripture, I point you to Acts 1:7.

"And He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority."

You won't know when the end is coming.

Am I the only one that finds it rather comical that a book that's 2000 years old is taken more seriously than a concept that has been around for 4600+ years?

Seriously though, in a way I do agree that the odds of man knowing when the end of the world will come (aside from full scale nuke warfare) are pretty slim. At least as far as earth bound natural disasters go. Non terrestrial issues aren't any better but we do have eyes on the sky and that can give us some warning. Whether or not we can actually do anything....

My biggest quirk with most monotheistic religions in the idea that there is one answer to every question. That's never true in reality, so it seems odd to me to enforce it in belief.

Doesn't mean I don't read various religious scripts.

And I'm all for Nuclear Warfare. Just please wait until I get my Vault set up.

What I found interesting is that not only does the Mayan calendar say December 2012 is the end of everything but the Hopi Indians, Hinduism and Nostradamus all seem to agree.

Well, see, this is interesting. Because if you trust coincidental prediction, then it makes a lot more sense to trust in coincidental history. So logically, anyone who places significance on this idea should place equal or greater significance on the fact that American indians, regular Indians, Hebrew, Chinese, and about half a dozen other ancient societies recall a global flood in the same historical period.

The world isn't ending in 2012. I'm not done with it yet.

Nostradamus was wrong 93% of the time, the other 7% are more than likely forgeries or extremely vague statements. PLUS, we all know that worlds are only destroyed by Death Stars, and I haven't seen one being built anywhere yet...

that is actually a very good, and valid point... particularly if you do not believe in christianity , and even if you do, recorded history and prophecies do not start and stop with the christian religion, and the bible. the only reason i used that reference is because it is the only one that i am familiar enough with to make a response with. i do not know enough about other end time prophecies or philosophies to speak to them, much less quote them. i find it interesting to hear and read other opinions though. with that being said, i choose to believe in the christian beliefs of the end times, but in no way think that it has the only explanation.

because, just as nostrodamus was vague and symbolic in his prophecies, so is the christian bible.

I kind of want to see if a bunch of people go out on to the mountains and wait for the Lords return as they have in the past. I believe in the Biblical prophesy as to how the world is going to end...although it's debates at to when the church will be pulled, but it seems common belief that it will happen before the bowls of wrath are poured out. I have this kind of crazy wish to be around though, take out a few creatures and crazies...and see what happens, but I also don't want to be stung by the evil little scorpion creatures.

My argument is if you believe these prophecies are true and that the world will end...well according to your belief the world is going to end. That doesn't mean there's going to be a natural disaster, or a war...it means the world is going to end...no one will survive. No point in worrying about something that's going to happen one way or the other. Besides, you can't make it out of this world alive anyway. :tup:
