Why 2012, just because the Mayans predicted that the world would end? Why then, and who says they will be right? Who KNOWS ANYTHING! Sorry, a little
ranting was needed. But seriously, who is proving to be crediable on this? The internet is the internet, it would take we $200 and some cheap
programmers to put together a site that predicted the "End" of the World.
Sounds a little like REM. If you look close enough, every generation has thought the world will end in there generation, look at it. Everyone
"thought" Hitler and Moussili would take over the world. Everyone "thought" we were teetering on the edge of a nuclear Holocast with the
Everyone "thought" WWI aka the "Great" War would end life in conjuntion with the Influenza Pandemic
Everyone "thought" in the 15th century that the Black Plague would overrun everyone
Everyone "thought" Y2K would lead to our downfall
Everyone "thought" that Osama is the AntiChrist
I could go on and on. My point is that every generation has they're our predictions of doom and gloom for mankind in the comming future, and claim to
I mean, you think we are going crazy with AIDs, the Iraq war, food and oil shortages and Global Warming?
Think of around the 13th, 14th century. The Black Plague has just wiped out a third of everyone you ever knew, food was in great shortages, greedy
Monarchs collected high taxes and sat on mountains of food while most of the population suffered.
In the 14th century, scientists have found evidence of a little Ice Age. How would you like a glaicer almost wipe your village wipe you village off
the map. It was so bad, the church sent a few monks to the Alps to perform Cleansing on the 'moving' river of ice, to rid the devil of it.
If you think we have it bad, look at history, we are some of the most properous people of all time. Critices say, look at third world povety, when
really we are spending a slight more incressed percentage on charity then the world has ever.
Its the cycle the world works in. If you think terrible things will happen in 2012, look at your past, your history, and see through the it. I mean,
we all talk about 2012 doomsday, and pull 100 people off the street and less than a quarter will say they've heard of it, and I bet less than 1% will
Reconsider your thinking, and try to live your life without looking towards doom and gloom upcoming.
