WOoOoOoO here comes the twenty twelve train.....ChOo ChoO!!!
Why does 2012 have to be a bad time ? I have read numerous sites ( yeah doesn't sound credible lol) about 2012 and this one-
Heres a quote- This fact isn't nearly as frightening as it sounds! The Mayans kept extremely detailed astronomical records and they followed the
cycles of the planets and stars as they travel around in their orbits. We are currently in the 4th cycle recorded by the Maya. It started in 3114B.C.
and lasts for 5126 years until 2012. With the end of the 4th cycle comes... the beginning of the 5th cycle. The Maya believe that in the 5th cycle the
ancient wisdom of the Maya will be rediscovered by the world and it will be a new dawn for mankind!
"In just 12 years we face another apocalyptic test: the Classic Maya millennium, on December 23, 2012 (based on our Western Gregorian calendar).
That's when the Maya calendar will turn over to all zeros — 126.96.36.199.0 by the long count. (By the way, the Maya use of the zero by at least A.D.
200 is one of their key claims to fame, since the zero was not introduced to the West until the insights of Aryabhata, a fifth-century Indian
mathematician, reached Europe.) The Maya millennium comes 5,126 years after the creation, which, by their reckoning, occurred precisely on August 11,
3114 B.C. But we probably shouldn't worry too much about this, since Pacal, the most famous ruler of Palenque, confidently predicted that his
accession would be commemorated on October 15 in A.D. 4772 (Gregorian time).
We, like the Maya and probably everyone else, are always trying to predict critical turning points in the future so we will have time to prepare for
them. Unfortunately, we're not very good at it. "(W.L. RATHJE, a Senior Editor of Scientific American Discovering Archaeology).
I can't tell you whether the guy is credible, we can only speculate.
Heres another site which claims "2012 will be a turning point" but not before misery. Again I cannot say his word is truth.
Heres a link to a story I found through google speaking about the Magnetic Pole shifting towards Syberia (bonus: theres a guy with the name Joe
Stoner. yeah Stoner lol). news.nationalgeographic.com...
As long as Scotland doesn't become like Hawaii, I;ll be fine with a magnetic pole shift.
/prefers cold weather. means I can put my hood up.
EDIT: all I did was google "mayan calendar" and "magnetic pole shift".
