yah, I wish the world would end in 2012. It would be more interesting than this damn recession.

Perhaps we are already living in post-apocalyptic times and simply are unaware. Who said the apex that ended humanity would be obvious?

That could be it. Maybe the recession is the beginning of our end. The economy collapses and so do all government organisations, including defence. The people descend into anarchy, giving birth to small independant governments formed by gangs, cults, militias, etc. But also, enemies with the power to do so invade and start taking pieces of territory for themselves.

… I am so going to start writing this as a story now.

I love how they do the interview in a bar… God what shit this is
Oh yeah, real journalism THAT is, get a “pretty” women with big tits in a low cut dress who's voice doesn't go below the shouting level to interview some fool in a bar about his extremest anti-left bias.
Oh maaaan… typical Murchod treatment. lol!

My “prediction” is that by 2012 Murdoch's “journalists” will graduate from low-cut to completely topless. And it STILL won't be as good a news source as Naked News.

I look forward to Bill O'Riely bare chested :)

EEK! And Sean Hannity? It will truly be the end of the world as we know it. Couldn't we have literally topless as is chopped in half?

My move to Palenque for the end of the Mayan Calendar could end up being permanent to escape these horrors in the simpicity of living among the impoverished Indians in Central America or maybe an escape to the South Seas; just so long as I eat well (corn tortillas are fine by me), have internet and a bevy of pretty native girls.

And no media moghols anywhere near me.

Maybe try to arrange for all the media moghols to be destroyed by the original Mongol hordes.

Some are real and will eventually happen, some could happen soon, others are just out there bizarre and not likely. :P

If you're an insane end of the world junky or just enjoy reading this kind of stuff.

That site made a point about dinosaurs not being here to take over. One thing it's gotten me curious about, is that if the dinosaurs never died out, would we have never become the dominant species? Or would it have really been like the Flinstones where we tamed the dinosaurs?

Okay, that's another story idea I got to write about.

Well, it is very likely that we would have never existed since Mammals never would have evolved or advanced due to the Dino's eating them for snacks all the time.

To be totally and completely honest. I don't believe there will ever be an actual Apocalypse.

Why? Because, it's just a crazy fantasy idea that some people make up to scare others. Y2K was just one example of it. Wasn't the world supposed to end there? Well, we're still here, aren't we?

I thought 6/6/06 was supposed to be the end of the world too. Back then I believed in that sort of thing. I was scared to death. But nothing happened. It was just a regular day.

IMO, the only end of the world that will happen, is when we finally run out of resources, wars will start, all that.

Actually, the Y2K situation is an example of the exact opposite - a real problem that needed to be dealt with. it was never the end of the world, it was just a problem. In the 1980s or so a lot of folks who worked with computers became concerned about the rollover problem and the trouble it might cause on the millenium. But things worked exactly the way they should have - people talked about the problem and made it known as so fixes got made.

Of course, the Y2k bug was never going to be the end of the world, but it's annoying the way that real problems get thrown in with end-of-the-world craziness. There are real problems in the world that require hard work and attention. The crazy people who go on and on about “the end of the world” just want to get in the way - perhaps they hate it when reality gets in the way of their crazy fantasies.

Great point Stacey but one thing: “The end of the World” usually is "The end of the world as we know it. Google the Millerites and the Great Disappointment. :)

There was a great special on Discovery going over the end of the world scenarios. My favorite was the one where the earth was eaten by a black hole created in that accelerator recently started up. We're still here.

Oh wait, we were moved to alternate Chia Earth by a white lab mouse and his goofy assistant.

That actually ended up saving everyone because of a meteor. Then normal earth got destroyed, but luckily no one was on it because they all went to Chia Earth to get free t-shirts.

Many things point to the end of the world being 2012: Nostradomis (or however you spell his name), the Mayan calender (HA, they didn't even live to see 1812), and many on the street nutjobs. Truthfully, that's not what they predicted (all except for the nutjobs). If memory serves correct, both predicted the end of humanity as we know it; that doesn't mean the end of us or Earth (my minuet ability of premonition has allowed me to see visions well past 2012, so we ain't going die just yet). If I remember correctly, each time the age on the Mayan calender changed it was a new era in human development (like the last one was 100 years ago, and that was the one of the best and worst times in human history). Well you know what I think, but how do you feel about this load of crap?

1. Nostradamus has been wrong about more things than he's been right about. His “predictions” are either based on very vague generalizations or are retroactively forged by various parties in recent years.
2. The Mayan calendar does not predict the end of the world, it predicts the coming of a new age. The Mayans regularly celebrated such terrific shifts. Take anything created by a civilization that thought white people were gods with a grain of salt.
3. You are not psychic.

No they changed it in the cartoon because they thought that some people without senses of humor wouldn't get the heavy physics involved behind nuclear accelerators and black holes. ;)

Then before that there was the move of all humans while we slept to Earth2 that happened in the early 1980s… except we didn't tell… the… stupid people. Ooops. (Steve Martin on SNL in the 1980s back when it was funny)

Too late you already did reappear.

Ever get the feeling that the world already ended and we're living in the aftermath and just don't know it yet?

When the Roman Empire ended it was some big thing! Right? No, life still went on as usual.

I feel it's a load of crap. You can't predict the future because it's not there yet.

There's no such thing as prophecy. Never has been, never will be.

i know this thread is super old and i should let it die, but eh.
i concur with most of you, magic and religion and prophecy will never intervene with the real world, unless they are made to intervene by their followers somehow.
anyways, i think it shows a kind of weird racism in how obsessed people are about all this “2012, the ancient mayans said it” kind of stuff.
as if to say, ‘omg, they were old and mystical and native.’ however, as someone else pointed out, the maya are still around, and they aren't really one people, but a whole bunch of them. remember that whole crystal skulls thing? it's just like that..
it also shows off the naivete of the general populace. not that i want to distance “myself” and “us” from “them,” but it always seems like they need something to govern them and something to follow, whether it be god, allah, patriotic spirit, police, etc.

:spin:

The whole thing is stupid, even if the Mayans could predict the end of the world they haven't.
The Mayan calender works like this, you start with the date 1 then you go to 2, when it gets to 20 it becomes 1.0 then 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 … 1.19 2.00.
Eventually when the greater digit reaches 20 another number is added to the front and the date becomes 1.0.0.

On December 21 2012 the Mayan calender just adds another digit to the front. There has never been any evidence that actually suggests that the Mayans thought the world would end on the 21st of December 2012, in fact, the Mayans made many predictions for the future, many of which happen thousands of years after 2012.

The Mayans did however predict the end of the world, it's in about 41,341,049,999,999,999,999,999,994,879 years.

Because the Mayans said so. And that sounds cool.

Just like 2000 was supposed to mark the end of the world because it was a cool looking number.

Once the Mayan end of the world date has come an gone, I think the next big one will be the 2000 year anniversary of Jesus's death.

So when is that? Good Friday, 2033?
