2012 is a trap to get you to freak out and/or convert to new age spirituality

....and Religion is a trap for people incapable of critical thinking. Religion is for those who are not motivated enough to search for their own answers!!!

I am personally looking forward to the 2012 movie - not just for the special effects but also to see what line Hollywood is pushing. As a recent visitor to the offical Sony movie site I was flabbergasted to see the IHC being pushed upon ignorant and impressionable readers (myself included) as a legitimate organisation. I did some research and what did I find? Another Hollywood hoax designed to instill fear into the hearts of innocent movie goers. Have a read of The Institute for Human Continuity (IHC) - Hoax or Real Deal?

If someone believes contrary to yourself, the answer is not to accuse them of being naive.
1.Lacking worldly experience and understanding, especially:
a. Simple and guileless;
b. Unsuspecting or credulous
2. Showing or characterized by a lack of sophistication and critical judgment: (source)
Faith comes in many flavours.
So I say once again respect their faith and you may find it reciprocal.

Do you even know what "New Age" is. I Doubt It.
"The New Age (also known as the New Age Movement, New Age spirituality, and Cosmic Humanism) is a ...
It combines aspects of cosmology, astrology, esotericism, alternative medicine, music, collectivism, sustainability, and nature.
...seeks "Universal Truth" and the attainment of the highest individual human potential....
The term New Age was used as early as 1809 by William Blake who described a belief in a spiritual and artistic "New Age" in his preface to Milton: a Poem. The Freemasonry journal of the 1800s was titled The New Age.
Some of the New Age Movement's constituent elements appeared initially in 19th century metaphysical movements: Spiritualism, Theosophy, and New Thought;
'Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.
Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter ina the fire,
who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells,
or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.
