What's the point of arguing about this kind of a thing? Honestly, no matter what any of us, including me, think, whatever happens on 2012 will happen
and we'll find out when we get there. Let's say we all die in 2012. If that is what you believe, why argue this point? People die, that's a fact of
life. I could step out the door tomorrow and get hit by a car and die, it wouldnt make a damn difference to me if the world ended in 2012 then, would
it? Every single human being alive today will someday die. Some will say to this "one person dies, another is born. but if every person dies, the
whole race dies out". Let's address this statement from 2 perspectives: atheist and religious.
Religious people, you know that us people shouldn't be worrying about temporary things that happen on earth and we should think about the bigger,
Atheists, if we die and nothing happens afterwards, what difference would it make if we all die at once? On a bigger scale we're a tiny planet in a
huge universe, you could say none of what happens here matters. What matters is our perception of it, right here, right now. Not the perception
of december 21, 2012, but the perception of the present, july 27th, 2009 (or whatever the present date is, it changes everyday). Now, why
does it matter who's right? Why does it matter if atheists are right and 2012 is just another day? Atheists will say that they want to warn
people that all the money they're spending on 'surviving 2012' books is a waste. Honestly, warning about such a thing is simply pointless.
People are evil. People would scam each other regardless of whether there's a doomsday rumor or not, con-men have been around for a long time.
2012 proponents will say that the reason why their argument matters is because they want to save people from dying. I already discussed why worrying
about death is pointless earlier in my post. Now, if the proponents are coming from a religious standpoint and saying that bad people will go to hell
on 2012, what's the point of bringing the 2012 thing into the play here? Shouldn't you be trying to convince people to be good in heart and do good
deeds instead of trying to prove what will happen on 2012?
For the new age people, the answer doesn't matter either. Whatever happens happens, time will roll on and we'll find out, but arguing about it
won't do anything. If it truly is the age of enlightenment, why argue with other people that it is? I mean, according to your beliefs, the world will
be enlightened in 2012, right? So, why try to prove it to others who don't believe you instead of waiting for it to actually happen so those people
can see for themselves?
Really, no one will win this argument cause we're arguing about something that hasn't even happened yet. All of this is pointless, including me
posting a reply, cause there will be people who'll challenge me and in the end the argument will continue. I'm not gonna reply or try to argue
anymore, I've already wasted too much time typing this up, I'm not gonna waste anymore. The only reason why I typed this is cause I lack the
maturity to accept my own advice and not worry about what others say about this topic. I do have my own beliefs about 2012, none of them have been
mentioned in this thread though (and I will not bring them up, that'll just start a whole new argument). I shall add that I'm not an atheist, but at
the same time I'm not gonna defend any religion on the arguments they make against each other/atheists, cause arguing who's right and who's wrong
instead of following your religion and not interfering with other's lives is pointless and will lead to a dead end. It seems like people would rather
waste their lives arguing that their beliefs are right instead of actually following those beliefs (and this statement will be challenged too, people
will say 'but our religion tells us to convert people', I have things to say to that as well, but I'm done arguing).
