no need to worry man.
if you believe it is the end, that may happen.
it is the end of the mayan calendar, and the start of whats called the golden age (where people born 2012 and after will literally have golder skin - makes sense to me, all people do these days is tan but it will be natural)
and as far as i know 2012 is when society will calm down and figure out our problems automatically; such as (down here in Aus) the drought and current petrol prices - we will think of methods they may not resolve them instantly, but help us eliminate the problem over time.
but no apocalypse this time round!

You won't need it since the world is ending...


You can have all my stuff in 2013

nono... you have to wrap it up as x-mas presents, since the world ends the 21st. We would have just about time enough to come collect them before x-mas
Please adress all girlie items with merry x-mas to my sis Thea

I don't think the world will end no. It's just the usual pilfering of ancient cultures by cranks today to support "their" pet conspiracy theory be that aliens, the new world order etc.

It's not a new phenomena by the way, people have predicting the end of the world for centuries, there are many classic examples. In each case the world carries on regardless!

when this happens no one knows exactly what will happen...


What utter rubbish! Aligned with the centre of our galaxy indeed! My dear, we are located within a spiral structure of stars called the Milky Way galaxy and therefore we are always aligned with the centre of the Galaxy! Thus, from our point of view, the centre of the Galaxy as always been in the constellation of Sagitarius.

Dude, that's just it. Point of view. It's relative to US. Her post about the alignment is taking that into account.

Same relative point of view, and the fact that we (planet Earth) and all the other planets spin around, that brought us the astronomical idea of the 12 zodiacs, is also bringing you this 'galactic alignment'. The precession of the equinoxes. Familiar? We are about to enter the Aquarius sign due to this. This alignment bit is based on the same stuff...

This is the Galactic Alignment: From our perspective, our Sun (solstice), is aligned (crosses) with the center plane of our galaxy. This is astronomical fact. But this alignment isn't as significant as some think, as the preceding solstices to 2012 are only marginally different then the 2012 solstice.

The Mayans had our point of view in mind when they watched the stars as well.

Thanks for clearing that up, however there are still many errors:

Well not quite. You see the sun actually passes through 13 constellations, one of them being Ophiuchus which for some reason is not counted as a zodiacal constellation so I don't see how any system which only takes account of 12 constellations can work when the sun actually passes through 13.

Next, our Sun is not called solstice. Solstice is derived from the Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still) as the sun appears to ceases all motion in declination at this point. Now when you say the Sun crosses the Galaxy, the rotation of our system around the galaxy is about 220km/s, but the velocity perpendicular to the plane of the galaxy is 7km/s, this means that the sun almost orbits the Galactic Plane but not quiet.

Well quite, though they had their own reasons for doing so, it does seem that the Mayan calandar has been adopted by some people who insist the world will end in 2012. However, it is hard to take any of it seriously when much of the basic astronomy is wrong.

I was simply sharing some theories that are out there. there is no need to get rude.

2012 is the end of the materialistic world, what comes after is the introduction of a higher self.

I wasn't saying the Mayan Long Count calendar uses the 12 zodiac signs


I was using that as an example to elucidate the how and why they used space to create their calendar.

And sorry for the confusion, I was not trying to equate the 'Sun' with 'Solstice'.

And yes there is an alignment. Relative to us. It will be this way for 700 or so years. This is just astronomy.

Further down the park is the closed trailer of the Dovers, they
died recently and as I'm sitting here typing, their trailer seems
to be giving off a grey fog...? maybe it's started already.
I'll go and have a closer look.

[edit on 15-5-2008 by IronMan]


I can't believe the Dovers are dead, I saw Ben only last week.
It must've been Tuesday. He was wearing his cornflower-blue tie.

105 years old, he hung in there, didn't he?
He didn't die of old age, either. He was poisoned, stabbed, shot,
hung, stretched, disembowled, drawn and quartered.

No way for a man to die. A parachute not opening... that's a way to die.
Getting caught in the gears of a combine...
having your nuts bit off by a Laplander, that's the way I wanna go.

Where's the fog now?

Heh! welcome Vasili 'Oh Boy' Borrow acupaSuger,
Yes It's true, the Dovers bought the big one a while back
and left me with that pesky dawg.

A you may be aware, I've 'grown' since that evening at
the Swingers party and now, with Big Moira as a cohort,
I can develop further.

I think that 2012 will be a fine year, I'm looking around at
about that time that maybe 'her' and me will buy our place,
and if things turn out maybe a pick-up, a gunrack and a skinny
hound that will out outta the window.

A gun rack... a gun rack. You don't even own *a* gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack. What are you gonna do... with a gun rack?

You may recall from my postings that I play
Lacrosse, I belive the rack will be a convenient
place to let my 'killer-sticks' reside.

Moira loves the shorts I wear during tournaments.

Thank You.


The world was supposed to have ended 10 times in the past 10 years alone. Chalk up how many idiots that have come along in the past 5,000 years alone with that shlock about the end of the world and you'll have a long term cottage industry of this nonsense.

The only thing that'll happen in 2012 is you'll sit around kicking yourself in the ass for wasting so much time worring about 2012 and realize how much of a sucker you and millions of other people have been with this end of the world crap.

These stories are only scams perpetrated to keep you fearful and off your game.

Nature rewards only one thing: performance.

If you're running on 'scared' you're not at the top of your game and by default become prey.

I was displaying distate for the theory not you, however reading the message again it does indeed look rude and so I do apologise, that was not the intention.

The year 2012 will be very normal.
There will be another presidential election.
The economy will be very strong.
A republican will be elected president.
It will probably be McCains VP.
December 21, 2012 there will be disclosure about the Roswell 1947 UFO
crash. After people absorb that shock, the rest will be disclosed
to the american people and the rest of the world.
In 2013 we will use the incredible advanced technology to travel
to the asteroid belt in about 20 minutes. - Nonlinear time -
A colony will be established on the moon.
A very large orbiting space station will be constructed.
It will clearly be a new beginning for mankind.

Hmm, well - i'll happily say that if things continue as they are, i don't think i'll care if the world ends in 2012.
