Default 2012

Is this not the biggest bunch of bullsh*t ever?

At least 1988, 2000, hell even 2007 was based on SOME actual evidence, by that I mean religious kook evidence, 2012 dosen't even have that.

It's all about the Mayan calandar, we're talking about a civilization that made human sacrifices and believed sinkholes were portals to the underworld, they couldn't even predict their own downfall, how are we supposed to believe that these guys can predict the end of the world? Oh wait, they DIDN'T predict the end of the world, their calandar just f*cking ends on December 12, 2012, what are we supposed to expect, for the calander to go on forever? We all have monthly calandars, does this make every January 1st potentially the end of the world just beause the calandar ends?

All of the 2012 theories have nothing to do with the Mayans or any ancient stuff, it's the work of the same assh*les who continue to push the Nostradomus hoax. The Mayans had wars to worry about, maybe they realised that a calandar that goes on FOREVER is just a waste of time.

So, what do you believe? I know what I'm gonna do on that day, I'm gonna laugh my ass off when nothing happens.

Except maybe Palin winning the election, and it will probably be thanks to all the people who believe this nonsense, now THAT's worth worrying about.

They probably ran out of room. Or thought the number looked pretty.

I ****ing hate how this kind of bull**** actually gets time on major news networks. Very few people would be worried by this kind of thing if it wasn't taken as seriously as it is. A few weeks ago, I saw some show on the history channel where they had "experts" explaining how the world was going to end in 2012, and I just know that some people out there were taking it seriously and actually truly believe that since those experts believe it to be true, it must be true.

Of course. Big, nice looking numbers always mean that the world is going to end. Usually they have to end in a few zeroes though. The Mayans probably just though that 2000 was too cliched and obvious, so they choose 2012 for their ending date.

The calender does go on forever. All 2012 was supposed to do was signal the end of an era and the beginning of a new age.
No end of the world, no Armageddon.

There's so many dates for a supposed doomsday, including dates AFTER 2012.

It's a never ending cycle. It inspires the imaginations (of stupid people) so there will always be stuff like this.

And no that's when the Mayan calandar ends, I'm pretty sure.

It's also supported by a prediction made by Nostradamus. I don't know if he's ever accurately predicted anything and you'd think with all the knowledge gained in the years since the collapse of their civilization people would trust modern astronomy more. I'm going to say this though: not once in history has superstition, the bible, preachers, psychics, prediction or the Mayans ever predicted anything accurately (how many times is Jesus supposed to have come back now? If you look up the seventh day adventists (at least I think it's them) you'll see they predicted Jesus' return through some formula they never explained) over a century ago) than what could be attributed to pure chance or simple observation. The boogie man isn't real, kids.

Anytime anything bad happens, Nostradamus fanatics say that he predicted it. It's pretty easy to do. If he wrote something that even resembles an actual tragedy in the slightest way imaginable, he predicted it. I forgot where I saw it, but someone made fun of the process by which this kind of thing happens by using "The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round" to predict multiple events in the 20th century.

I always thought it was a running joke. Does anyone in the world actually think that it's true? If so, they ****ing idiots.
