I am curious to see what happens in the year 2012. Who knows it could be the end of the world as we know it. I mean the support the US government has from the citizens is declining. Last I checked 80% of the public does not trust the government. Part of the 20% that do trust the government does not trust it all the way. Also 2012 is an election year here in the US.

I am a true believer in the 12-21-2012 being a very important and powerful omen of a day.






It is my 10th wedding anniversary!!! :(

@ IrishMack,

I have some theories on the whole end based on factors both in the Bible directly and some based on just observation and speculations. If I'm right (and I can't say for sure that I am), I think you'll get your wish (well, partially anyway).


I figure, I'll prepare for the worst which would be having to stick around for the whole thing, that way, if for some reason my families general idea that we will be pulled out pretty early on falls through, I won't be completely unprepared for the chaos


The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. 2When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. 3And out of the smoke locusts came down upon the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. 4They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5They were not given power to kill them, but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes a man. 6During those days men will seek death, but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them. The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. 8Their hair was like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth. 9They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. 10They had tails and stings like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months.

not to happy about those little critters though...from what I've read, 144,000 will be sealed from the various tribes of isreal and they won't be affected...but seeing as I'm not jewish, either I'm gone at this point, or they get to sting me, and I don't really want that to happen.

After reading that passage, I'm beginning to speculate on a working theory.

My personal opinion is that much of the imagery of Revelations isn't necessarily literal, as I can cite other places in the Bible where metaphor is used (that, and the way it's even described sounds like a metaphor, such as verse 9). I'm wondering if John (author of the book) is describing things he can't quite grasp and doing the best he can.

Another example elsewhere in the book is describing how the moon will turn to blood. It could be a reference to an eclipse, which gives the moon a reddish color.

But I'm just speculating.

I of course don't believe everything to be entirely literal...but weather literal or not, those creatures don't sound like somethign to mess with. On another note though, I've heard that polution actually gives the moon a reddish tint, I sometimes wonder if prehaps many of the events that are referenced in the book are due to natural occurances that us as humans will cause.

I just hope the Stargate program is real and I'll have a place to go when all this goes down. Or all this money NASA is getting is for a good cause, like making ships!!!!!.

NASA gets very little. Even less since Obama got elected. I'm not trying to bash him, it's just one of the things he lowered the budget for.

Do you still die if your not on planet?

Lemme' re-phrase that,
Does your existence end with the rest of the world if you're not on planet.

Your existence doesn't end until something causes it to cease.

That would depend on how far off planet you are and how the world ends. On the moon when the planet explodes? not going to help you much....

Lol the world will probably end 12-21-2012 just out of sheer panic and riots that occur in preparation for the end of the world.

M_P made a hilarious reply to one of these threads way back:

Quote

You mean...the Mayans could, over the course of the hundreds of years that their empire existed, they could measure the average sun rise, an event that's been happening every day at roughly the same time for billions of years?!

AAAHHHH! WE'RE ALL GONNA DIIIIIIIEEEE! GET TO YOUR BOMB SHELTERS!!!!!!!!! RRRUUUNNNNN!

The Mayans and the Aztecs were able to predict when the sun rose. So did the Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, Arabs, Egyptians, Mongols, Goth (Of both the Visi- and Ostro- variety), the Russians, the Romans, the Greeks, the Mycenaeans, the Africans, the Norse and Native Americans.

JUST BECAUSE AN ANCIENT CIVILIZATION WAS ABLE TO ACCURATELY MEASURE AN EVENT THAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING AT A MEASURABLE AND RELIABLE INTERVAL FOR BILLIONS OF YEARS DOES NOT MEAN THAT WILD PREDICTIONS ON WILL BE TRUE.

EDIT: Can we please put a stop to these silly threads? Here, I'm gonna predict how every other 2012 thread is going to happen until January 1st, 2013:

OP: OMG I FOUND SOME CRAZY THEORY THAT'S EXPLAINED IN SIMPLE BUT WRONG TERMS ON YOUTUBE! AND IT'S ON THE INTERNET, SO IT MUST BE TRUE!
Some posters: OMGOMGOMG WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!
Intelligent posters: What? This is so full of crap. This, that and the other thing are completely wrong.
Other posters: But the Mayans/Bible/Nostradamus/Qur'an/Idiot scientist with an agenda/Raving hobo by the 7-11 said it's gonna end because of returning gods/oil crisis/sunspots/comet/Antichrist! It must be true!
Intelligent posters: I already said it once. This, that, and the other thing are why they're wrong. Come on, even I can figure this out.
Third group: I don't care, I'm gonna be all macho about it. Let's have a party.

Here's how ever 2012 thread from January 1st, 2013 is going to go:
Everybody: HA! PWNED!" - Maurader Pilot

The Mayan calendar just ends, there's nothing to say that it is an end of the world prediction. Just some very negative people think it. For all anyone knows it could be the date aliens return to Earth to check on the big experiment, us.

But this is only ONE E.o.t.W theory. There's still Planet X, Solar flares, Asteroid strikes.... Not to mention human stupidity.
