Somehow I think I've seen this thread before...
'sok, I think it needs reviving from time to time. OK, here's my two cents...it's impossible that "nothing will happen in 2012" and I'll tell
you why. The "prophesies" surrounding that year are so vague that the fix is in for an unfalsifiable prophesy. Almost anything can be taken as a
fulfillment of the various prophesies out there!
Furthermore, consider the Millerites. When a charimastic preacher named Miller said that Christ was going to come in 1841 or so, he did not lose his
following when Christ did not come at that date because he said that his prophesy was merely misinterpreted. The 2012 crowd could and probably will
make similar claims, or at least the more specific 2012 prophets such as the Nibiru crowd.
