The Great 2012 Doomsday Scare -

This article was originally published in 'Sky & Telescope Magazine'.
What blew my mind is that they mention Dennis and Terence McKenna....

"Another book in 1975 also spotlighted the Maya calendric roundup. Dennis and Terence McKenna discussed it in The Invisible Landscape: Mind, Hallucinogens, and the I Ching. That book at least got the Baktun-13 end date right: Dec. 21, 2012. It also noted that the date is the winter solstice, when the Sun will be "in the constellation Sagittarius, only about 3 degrees from the Galactic Center, which, also coincidentally, is within 2 degrees of the ecliptic." The McKennas continued, "Because the winter solstice node is precessing, it is moving closer and closer to the point on the ecliptic where it will eclipse the galactic center." In reality this event will never happen, but it hardly matters. The McKennas linked the whole arrangement with the concept of renewal and called 2012 a moment of "potential transformative opportunity.""

I was in in Central America this summer and I asked alot of people about 2012. None of the Maya I asked thought it was significant, most seemed to not even know what i was talking about. the only people who had heard of it were western hippy travellers.

I feel it to be a new beginning, a chance for us to have a second life in our life, how many people get to have that chance? what is it like every 640,000 years the planets align as they will in 2012, thats pretty nuts, that we will see that and experience it, I do not think anything bad is gonna happen, maybe nothing at all, maybe a shift in consiousness, who knows! like death we must wait and see!

Self Fulfilling Prophecy?

Here's the run down 5-26-2010.
a) GOM oil spill.
b) NK and SK flair up.
c) European debt rising.
d) Middle East ?
e) USA reaches 13 trillion in debt.

The USA debt will hit 14T in seven months, 15T in 2011. Get the picture? On all the economy blogs, more and more people are figuring out the smack down that the gubment/Goldman Sachs elites are laying on the sheeple. The stock market is a casino with the hedge funds and large brokerages eeking out billions with their high frequency trading algorithms. On the other hand, the average retail investor has lost 20 percent in value of his stock market investments counting inflation since the year 2000.

In America, there's more and more internet chatter about preparing for bad times by buying guns and ammo, etc. And here's what's so fascinating.....the mainstream media is still not discussing our spiraling debt. Pretty soon, state governments are going to have to scale back on entitlements like social services and pension plans. That's when TSWHTF. Maybe that's why the media refuses to talk about it.

"Tonight on Fox News at 10. Riots broke out today at the state capital because of cuts in several welfare serv.......what? you want me to go to the......ok.....Tonight at 10....Tune in for a live report from our American Idol Headquarters........."

McKenna was wrong. We're not speeding up toward 2012.
We're slouching toward 2012.

Create your survival kits now kids! Create those stock piles of non-perishable foods! Even if everything miraculously fixes itself, at least you'll have a lifetime supply of canned beans :lol:

2012 is 100 percent dogshit!

If you believe in 2012 than you have been brain washed.

Simple as that.

It is ant-spiritual.

Wolf in sheeps clothing.

WATCH OUT!!!!!

You know... it STILL fucks with my head... I'm never reading another spiritual book again. It's ALL complete shit and if your offended by that than you've been completely brain washed.

I don't want someone else's retarded thoughts as my preconcieved notions!

And then they'll tell you not to think about certain other things because it's "bad."

And then you turn into a complete asshole who thinks he has found some higher understanding amongst people.

Because he's found the TRUTH!

and he will be crystallized

Sounds good mate. Too each his own! Just please TRY and stay positive!

2012 is just a number, WE assign any additional meaning to it. It could mean ANYTHING TO ANYONE! :D

The Great 2012

There will be Planetary Alignment: Nope, that is a lie.

There will be a Galactic Alignment: We're aligned with the center of the galaxy at ALL times.

We enter the Age of Aquarius: Nope, no one can actually pinpoint the exact date we enter Aquarius. It's ALL speculative so saying that we will enter the Age of Aquarius in 2012 is a false statement because it can not be proven and is not based on any fact.

There will be a winter solstice event: Yeah no shit! There's a winter solstice EVERY winter!

Yeah so what the fuck? Even the minor details that everyone assumes to be the "facts" are complete lies. We don't enter a new age, nothing aligns, nothing special happenes at all.

It's the biggest pile of dog shit on the internet.

Trust me when I say that this stuff isn't "waking up" anyone. It's the opposite of what it claims to be. It's pissing on you and calling it rain.
