    Geesh man, at least get your paranoid delusions correct.

    It's December 21st, not the 31st according to the doomsayers (I love how we can extrapolate a 5000 year calendar right down to the day).

    Yes. Even the IRS has said they will collect 2012 taxes starting October 2012.

    They've also listed out items like Arks, gas masks and other survival items are tax deductible.

    Really wierd. Think of all the people who will still be using IE6 in 2014 even though the world ended two years earlier.

    Of course this is more likely to be a local phenomena rather than apply to everyone. Perhaps the world is going to end on that date for the OP while it will continue to exist for everyone else.

    On a slightly related subject - does anyone know why the astronauts who visited the moon didn't bring back large quantities of cheese? Was it something to do with weight limits in the capsule or was it that they did tests and found that moon cheese would be inedible to people on Earth (or maybe they decided that it tasted so nice that they hid all the supply to keep it for themselves).

    Well, they left the cheese right there with the moon, for they knew about Dec. 31, 2012. A few of the astronauts have a secret mission prepared for that day to go back to the moon. No worries for them, they have enough cheese there to live on for the rest of their lives

    That is why they did not tell anybody -- hahaha

    I love this apocalypse theory, it's all to-do with how dates were interpreted by the Mayans, on the up-side though if you go by the factual information, Jesus was apparently born in July and the monks who translated his birthday got the date wrong (due to the calendar system they used) and they only kept with the December 25th to keep the pagans happy who formed the idea of Yule before they appeared on the block. So therefore I predict that if the world should end on that date, we will probably miss Christmas

    I think the theories which say that we are approaching the age of Aquarius are quite interesting. If you really think about it, humankind has only evolved so tremendously within the past one hundred years. And as we become more technologically advanced, time and new discoveries approach faster by the day.

    Perhaps the scientifically-inclined persons would agree that there is a vast majority about that universe that we do not yet know about—in that, is it possible that celestial objects and energies in outer-space are able to affect human consciousness either directly or indirectly. We already know through science that electromagnetic waves can have an impact on the human brain as we understand it.

    That and everyone likes an apocalypse, there's something about chaos which excites people, probably why action and sci-fi films are among the most popular

    They tried to steal Yule from us, but midwinter Pagan traditions are very much alive and well. Put another pig on the roast

    Haha count me as a Pagan too When I lived still in Germany we used to spit roast a whole ox for the winter solstace. Man was that fun. Two days the beast would roast, the guys turning it by hand crank had had too much "mead" by the time the ox was done and could not partake in the feast

    We had this big clearing in the woods, close to a quarry, where we would set up a huge circle of hay bales to sit on. People brought their own drinks and china and stuff. Big crowds too. Then we played home made instruments, like the devil's violin, a thing of screeching quality, to drive away the short days. Dancing got wild of course, fire jumping and the whole bit.

    Close by there was another tradition where people built huge wheels of wood where a man could stand inside. The wheels were set afire and pushed down a hill, the guys inside. There were never any injuries that one would think could happen. Quite a sight all these wheels rolling down…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_phenomenon

    It's hogwash.

    Basically this 2012 thing came about from the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar and when the date representation increases the largest significant decimal place. Converted to the Gregorian calendar (the calendar we use) the date ended up being in 2012.

    You can equate this value increase to kind of like when the milage on your car goes from 59,999 to 60,000. Your car doesn't blow up at 60,000 miles, and neither will the universe at 2012.

    ^ So whats your opinion about it? I mean do you believe with that link you provide?

    Well we really don't know whats gonna happened next and NO ONE WILL PREDICT for the FUTURE. So I guess lets just enjoy our life to the fullest. And don't think too much about 2012

    The end of the world has been predicted so many times over the millennia by doomsayers that I don't put any stock in their vague prophecies and predictions and attempts at sensationalism.

    Course, that's not to say you can't be hit by a bus crossing the street tomorrow either.

    And furthermore, just because a lot of people say it, doesn't make it true. I mean, come on, Al Gore did not invent the internet despite the number of people who say it's so

    For myself, the world can end on 12/21/2012, or 12/31/2012, or on any day after. I'll be at Milliways.

    however, earlier in the year, I'll be here... And everyone's invited.
