While I'm not convinced as to the cause of potential upcoming earth changes, I can't yet rule out their (even slight) possibility.
I don't trust the Government any farther than I can throw them, and that's after working for them for almost 11 years.
Let's play the "if" game for a second.
"If" something (be it whatever source of your choosing) were eminent, the Government as it stands now isn't going to you. But why? They should give
everyone the chance to prepare, right? Sure, OK.
Anyone care to recall what happened after Katrina? Not everyone is going to all of a sudden "see the light" (for lack of a better term) and become
role model post-catastrophe citizens. With that in mind, not to mention the chance to eliminate competition post-catastrophe, they would keep it to
themselves and make their own preparations as quietly as possible.
"If" something were to go down, they may invite a few select individuals into their realm. Not because it's the "right" thing to do, but they
will be needed to provide them with a service.
"If" this is the case, those individuals would already know whom they are, and will keep their mouths shut.
I'll be honest. I don't buy this whole global warming crap any further than I can throw it.
Not to say that there is some big mysterious object in a long periodical orbit, but to me this global warming excuse doesn't sum up all of the things
that are currently happening.
How long have we been keeping accurate scientific weather data? Just over 100 years, give or take?
We can't say with any degree of certainty that the earth doesn't naturally change in climate a tick every so often. We can look back and go "Oh,
there was an ice age", but we can't go back and accurately say that on this day, 15,000 years ago, it was 92 in what is now present day Miami.
What we have to go by are ancient texts, stories, drawings, symbols, etc. We can interpret them the best we can, but we don't know for certain that
they've been interpreted correctly. One minor glitch and it could throw off so many things.
I also don't believe that we know as much as we think we do scientifically. We're learning new things every day. What's to say that modern physics
has it all right? Not to discount it whatsoever, but how much do we know (that is actual fact) versus what there is to know? I'd be willing to bet
that what we know is a small percentage of how this strange universe actually works. Me personally, I find the quest for this knowledge as fascinating
as the knowledge itself.
Now, I'm not going to say there's aliens visiting earth. I haven't seen it for myself, and one hasn't knocked on my door. However, I can't
logically say that I don't believe that there isn't intelligent life out there somewhere. They teach you in grade school that the "universe is
infinite". OK, then logically, amongst all of those stars and galaxy's out there, we're not alone. They might not have dropped by Earth for a
visit, but there's something out there somewhere.
Carl Sagan did a great breakdown of it on one of his shows. Just using the stars in the Milky Way, he came down to a possible 200,000 civilizations
that "could" exist in our own galaxy.
Either way, to tie this all together (finally, I know):
"If" the government knew of an impending cataclysm, they aren't going to tell you.
"If" the government knew for a fact that intelligent life exists beyond our planet (and/or has dropped in to say hi", they aren't going to tell
Why? Because of the mass chaos that would ensue. Sure, a lot of people would be rational about it, but it's that small percentage that would ruin it
for everyone else.
Of course, TV has the power to spread the word, but that gets into another conspiracy all together. You know why a show is also referred to as a
Anyway, it is sad that some people want to make a buck off of peoples fears, but at the same time you can surf plenty of sites and wade through all
the drama to get to the root info.
