The "us vs them" mentality has got to stop.
The truth is that something disasterous could happen any minute.
This is a fact. See? The fact is that a global disaster could happen. And really, why not?
The fear of a nuclear holocaust has never really gone away. That is to say that nuclear weapons haven't gone away, we've just become used to living
under the threat of a nuclear war. Many counties live in a prepetual state of war and as far as I can tell "rules of war" don't really mean a thing
once your in one.
There was a tsunami a while back that was totally devastating. Could a bigger tsunami happen? Of course! Can we predict when? No, not with 100%
accuracy. Does that mean it wont happen? Absolutley not. I mean, yes, there is a chance that a bigger tsunami won't ever happen, but we wont know if
that is the case untill "ever" is over.
The magnetic poles are shifting. Maybe they have always been shifting. Maybe not. Maybe they are shifting faster than we think. Hey, its not like
we've never been wrong before. But then again, maybe they are shifting slower than we think. Who knows? Not me. But one thing I do know is that they
are shifting, at a specific rate, in a specific dirrection, and the rate and direction of the shift could change at any moment due to variables that
will only be visable in hindsight. Or maybe thay will just stay where they are right now, forever.
America, Canada, U.K., Germany, China, Australia, Japan, India, Russia. None of these political bodies are immortal. There is potential for every
single nation to crumble. Empires end. Civilizations fall. Political regimes have there hayday, then a new one rises up. Businesses open, florish,
struggle and close every single day.Economics is not an exact science. No economy is ever compleaty stable. Our Civilization is no different. To
believe otherwise is folly, to say the least.
Comets, asteroids, photon belts, hurricains, wars, earthquakes, terrorism, extra terrestials(how would you know if there was or not?), extra
dimensions, magnetic poles, cancer, aids, famine, etc, etc. There are a multitude of ways that the world could be tranformed, either violently or not
2012? Maybe. At least a few ancient cultures thought something might happen around this time. Could these predictions be nonsense? Yes, they could.
Have we figured out how or why they made these predictions, or how they built monoliths with astrnomical precision, or mumified their dead to preserve
DNA? Not in the least. These cultures were privy to technology, or at least knowledge of technology, that exceeds our own modern capabilities in many
ways. Please remind me, why do we consider them primitive?
There is a day coming when I will die. I don't know when or how. But inevitably, its there. If I guessed it will happen next week and I was wrong
people may not care to much. But if I kept guessing different days of my death as I continued to guess incorectly, would it really have any effect on
that fateful day that I really did die? Even if i caused my own death in order to manifest my prophecy, would the end result be any different?
We only use a small precentage of our brain. We dont know everything.
2012? Maybe, maybe not. If you claim that nothing will happen, you might be ignorant. If you calim someting will definetly happen, you might be
Never hurts to be prepared.
Might hurt not to be though.
