2012 - end of the world?

Post by jbmac » Thu Oct 11, 2012 10:49 am

I remember an active fun thread on the old edot, about 2012 the end of the world. I think the situation is a worsening world not the end, but for some it seems an end is better than waiting for the end, (crappy economy, evil oligarchy, etc)

Funny - no matter how bad the economy gets, the government won't stop wars overseas or on drugs, stopping those wars would save about 400 billion a year but hey that's too simple.

The world won't end. It was just as far as they could see at the time.

All I know is I wouldn't know the world would end if it weren't for the media.

Interesting video I saw on it, I do hope that a massive shift in awareness happens. I do so tire of this worn out culture that I'm forced to participate in.

In religion, this age is the farthest removed from God and completely corupt. True religion is lost and people have turned away from God. In the New Age community and hippies it's the total opposite. We are somehow getting closer to God and are becoming gods ourselvs through machines or some kind of geological phenomenon that no one is sure of. In religious context, the hippies and New Age are entirely demonic. The hippies hated religion, even though John Lennon wore a cross. What's up with that?

I think you have to be a little more specific. From my research hippies hated organized religion. Many of them did believe there was a god. Remember in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Hunter S. Thompson wrote that the fundamental error in the hippies reason was that they believed that someone was looking out for them. Now whether I agree with him or not on that idea isn't the issue, but it does imply that hippies had a belief in something higher than themselves. I think the hippy movement was something akin to the Martin Luther movement that founded Lutheranism, but with the abandonment of the christian archetype. In that movement it was a pitching out of old rules and beliefs, and empowering the self. I am speaking on averages of course as I'm sure hippies were different from one another.
