Oooooo, are we up a certain creak without a certain means of propulsion? (again?)

I think I will sleep easy tonight. If people carry on using the bible like this I may change my copys job (from door stop to fire wood!)

All that can mean ANYTHING. People see what they want to see in stream of consciousness rantings like this. It's because our brains are wired to see patterns even when there are none. Just like the argument I had on BTS the other day with a guy because he swore he saw Jesus in the clouds and I said it was just clouds.

And using the Bible to prove the Bible proves nothing.

Dig a deep hole, place body in it curled up and tight, kiss your ass good bye, cause it's going to be a disappointing wait.

Perhaps we are nearing the ‘end of the world’ as we know it not necessarily that a divine presence will come and take us to his kingdom. The ‘end-of-the world’ could take many forms. It could just mean the more obvious death of our life as we know it not the death of us.

Then again life and all that surrounds us is about birth, death and rebirth. We are constantly changing as is everything and every creature that occupies this universe. Mother Earth will shed her skin just like the rest of us.

Every generation has groups of people who are convinced the end is near. People see what they want to see, what they are hoping for. During WW2 people had a much more legitimate concern that the world was ending. Yet the world survived. Instead of focusing so much time and energy on writing end of the world crap, we should all be working on bettering ourselves as individuals. Be the change you wish to see.

I hope we are at or rapidly approaching the end of the world. Then all the religious kooks, the rapturous self-righteous, and the "Biblically challenged" folk will finally shut up once and for all.

I fear, however, that such a thing is not to be. Seems like the end of the world is supposed to happen every few years, but it never actually seems to get here. Very disappointing. And if it didn't show up in 2000, it's probably never going to arrive. So we'll just have to slog it out, the same as we do every day, with no supernatural assistance, for the foreseeable future.

Not another 'end of the world' predictor.

The Bible was just a book. It isnt real you know.


You done know that, dont say things that you know absolutely nothing about, theres a lot more to the Bible then you think.
There are a lot of things in the Bible that have been proven to be true, I dont have any links at the moment, but its all out there, you just have to have a look.

Sorry for not reading the rest of the thread, but I had to say... people who make posts like that make me kinda angry.

You're wasting your time. Most people on ATS do not believe in a higher power. Faith is weakness to them. They want to live their life their own way and then go back to the dust.


I just want to point this out, why is faith weakness to so many here? Why? You can stil live your life while being a Jew, A Christian, a Pagan if you want to. Just because something is written in the rulebooks doesn't mean it's not okay to do. For instance, if your boss were to tell you to starve to death was the new company policy, you wouldn't do it, Right? There you go! You just broke the rules! For a better cause! You are not chained to any religion some might thnk they are. Just feel free to take the chains off, and look at it with a clear mind, not one with prejudice. You will realize that religion can fit around you like a glove, that you can sculpt it to fit your needs, not the needs of a vast majority of people who are not like you ]The very site that we are on claims to Deny Ignorance. How can you Deny Ignorance without accepting all of the facts?! *tsk*tsk*

The book of Daniel in the ninth chapter:

24 Seventy weeks are determined on your people and on your holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem to the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and three score and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
26 And after three score and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and to the end of the war desolations are determined.
27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the middle of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured on the desolate.


All of this came to past exactly as he said except the last verse, which is to come and some think is near...


It's pretty amazing that God would concern himself with human earthly endeavors such as building a physical wall. In fact, it's so absurd it hurts to read it. Humans give God a human countenance because they can't grasp or visualize the unknown infinite. I wish most people would realize this.

There is a major global change coming. That much is for certain. You can see it all around you in society, everything is coming to a head and it has nowhere to go but explode in all directions. But the Earth isn't going to vanish into history, and neither is humanity. People could die if we have a massive world war, but the same could happen from natural disasters. And even more important is that humanity is finally starting to waken up and gain a global perspective and conscience. Something major could happen, we could have some kind of solar event, who knows? But nothing in any book can guarantee a definite outcome. The future can't be seen, for if it could we would have no future. We would long for nothing if we knew the outcome of our lives. The point of all these end-time stories is to inspire a consciousness shift. If we start thinking about ourselves as a global community and put aside all our petty differences, lay waste to greed and power, the result will in fact be the end of the world as we know it... the end of a power hungry, economically motivated capitolistic civilization. It's time to get back to our roots for we need no material posessions. It's time to invite our neighbors to be our friends.

The world will come to an end but not tomorrow or in the next decade or even in the next fifty years unless we as a human race start world war 3. The world will end when the sun explodes in a few million years time and goes nova consuming the Earth, Mecury, Venus and proabably Mars as well. I and everyone here will be long dead by then. Anyway living around the time the Sun goes Nova will hopefully have developed technology to travel to other worlds etc and escape the fiery end.

the giant Ark construction may be modeled as a Tourist attraction or a
Pilgrimage draw, who knows?? But to be exactly like the period before the
global destruction there needs to be an Ark in place at the end-time...

?agreed?


They already built another massive Ark although it was mainly CGI. It was in the movie Evan Almighty.

It was Bob Dylan who wrote that song called "Blowing in the Wind." He is probably the greatest and most prolific songwriter of our time. If you can pick up his new album Modern Times, which is a great throwback-style album. I think he may be someone who definitely thinks modern times may be "End Time," especially after listening to Modern Times.

As shrunkensimon put it, probably "not really an end, but a beginning," if it does happen. Me personally, I am open for anything. I think many things point towards it being a distinct possibility.

I guess we'll see, but I, for one, am not "waiting" for anything.

"Sorry for closing my eyes to everyone else: now, everyone else open your eyes to me. Because I'm all angry."

Angry on whose behalf? God's? Does anyone think a god would be such a weakling that it could be hurt by a little disbelief? And would anyone continue to worship that weakling?

Or angry on your own behalf because you've seen a mirror image of your own secret disbelief? That you've even looked for proofs of the bible's validity speaks to that.

The end of times will come when YOU die. That's it. The world will always be here in one form or another.
We self destruct, not nature, not God is involved.
Mankind's evil plots and plans and inevitably the nukes will fly and yes, many will die- but most of the "world" will go on to other things.

In the event of a natural catastrophe, then this is how civilizations have been wiped out- and yes, that could and probably will happen.

I'm really more afraid of the governments (mankind) than nature. God wants us to live- I dont beleive in God's wrath.

Nobody sees the future. There is guessing. There is hoping. And science has probabilities, but science at least doesn't say that a probability is going to happen, just that there is a probability something might happen.


How could you know what other people see.Do you think all people who see things before they happen go around telling everyone? Im pretty new around here and ive seen a lot of post from you. And for the most part I see you have a pretty good grasp on certain things. But when i see statements like that it makes me wonder. I have had a gift to see things before they happen since i was a kid. I normally only tell people who know me some of the things i see. But i choose not to say much because I hate when people like the ones on this site just want to say things like oh no, not another one.But tonight ive been getting pretty upset about all the debunkers and there tactics to put people down. So im on a mission to tell all i can, So people that are not closed minded can share and not be afraid to open up and speak there mind.Ill stress this point once again, Never assume what someone is saying is wrong just because you dont believe it. Speculation and alternative thinking is always welcome, But making bold statements as fact without absolute proof is just wrong.Now im sure you have seen all there is to see regarding 2012 and most likely you dont believe any of it. And thats your choice. I personally do believe something big is coming. I dont believe that it will be the end of the world. I believe it will be a transformation of our current mental state. And i also believe that there will be a lot of destruction and a lot of death. When ancient prophecies talk about the end of the world, in my opinion i think they thought it would be the end of man kind. based on the population at the time was very small. So any major event in there minds would kill everyone. I dont think they had a clue that in 2012 there would be Billions of people on the earth. And as always i will say to all, Give me some alternative reasons why this isnt going to happen and ill ponder them and make my own conclusion. But dont say that it is fact without some very strong evidence. And majorMalfunction , I still respect your Views and do find them very insightful. More than most i have read. before i found ats, i have kept most things bottled up in my brain with No way to express my experiences and thoughts. So this is all new for me. And it has opened my mind to be able to express myself better.Thank you .

The first 'sign' was all it took for me to dismiss this nonsense. Statements to the effect of "we are learning much quicker than ever before" are ridiculous, naive, totally subjective, and unquantifiable. Every generation that has ever lived can make the aforemnetioned claim, because it would seem true over and over. Arguments like that are very childlike.

For those who believe the bible a book with no historical truth behind it. The recent find or correlation between the bible and the Assyrian cuneiform tablets does propose the historical books of the Old Testament are based on fact.

If so....................
