If I may paraphrase the late, great George Carlin in a poignant metaphor: "While your busy worrying about the quiet one, the noisy one will come up behind and kill you."
Meaning: 2012 is a date, there once was a calendar that ended on a certain date in that year.
While your busy preparing for "that," the world is going to hell in a handbasket because of "real world" problems that you COULD ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT.
sorry to yell, but criminy! If you want to prepare for something, prepare to make the world a better place.
Then do it...

Edited to add:
Great Post, BTW, Sky, but a little presumptuous: for instance, you opine that pulling the heart out of a live sacrificial victim is a "bad" thing.
It's only death, and death is death. You don't know the mindset of anyone there. You can say it's a "bad" thing now. Then, it might have been neccessary. By this logic, anyone being killed in the name of ceremony is "bad." Humans do this, everyday. It's just natural.

If not "bad" then it is at least indicative of a different mindset than those see who glorify the mayans as "highly advanced". If ripping out a kids heart is such a "natural thing to do", then why dont you go ahead and do it? Because you are of an evolved mindset.

the The Great 2012 Hoax thread has degenerated, what makes it a must read?


anyhow, i ran across this page which lists a few of the significant 'leanings' and 'spins' on the 2012 meme:


+Apocalyptic predictions
2012 is sometimes claimed to be a great year of spiritual transformation (or apocalypse).
Many esoteric sources interpret the completion of the twelfth B'ak'tun cycle in the Long Count of the Maya calendar
(which occurs on December 21 by the most widely held correlation) to mean there will be a major change in world order.

Accordingly, several eclectic authors claim that a major, world-changing event will take place in 2012:

X-The 1995 book The Mayan Prophecies linked the Maya calendar with long-period sunspot cycles.
X-The book 2012: Mayan Year of Destiny claims the Maya may have been instructed in their wisdom by discarnate entities from Orion and the Pleiades. Contact was maintained through shamanic rituals conducted in accordance with the movements of planets and stars.
X-The 1997 book The Bible Code claims that, according to certain algorithms of the Bible code, a meteor, asteroid or comet will collide with the Earth.
X-The book The Nostradamus Code speaks of a series of natural disasters caused by a comet (possibly as above) which will allow the third Antichrist to disperse his troops around the globe under the guise of aid in preparation for a possible nuclear war, although in the strictest sense it is unspecific as to nuclear war or some other natural or man caused destruction.
X-The book The Orion Prophecy claims that the Earth's magnetic field will reverse.
X-The 2005 book Beyond 2012: Catastrophe or Ecstasy by Geoff Stray reviews several theories, prophecies and predictions concerning 2012 and finds where authors have used faulty information or have bent the truth to fit their theories.
X-The 2006 book 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl by Daniel Pinchbeck discusses theories of a possible global awakening to psychic connection by the year 2012, creating a noosphere.



i lean to, favor the last book which creates a noosphere... a lucid and tangible collective conscious pool of info , augmented realities, etc.



it continues:

Other prophecies and apocalyptic writings and hypotheses for this year include:

?-Terence McKenna's mathematical novelty theory suggests a point of singularity in which a great number of things could happen, including "hyperspatial breakthrough", planetesimal impact, alien contact, historical metamorphosis, metamorphosis of natural law, solar explosion, quasar ignition at the galactic core, or nothing.
?-The Prophecy of the Popes, attributed to Saint Malachy, speculated that Pope Benedict XVI would reign during the beginning of the tribulation of which Jesus spoke, and sometime later a future pope described in the prophecy as "Peter the Roman", the last in this prophetic list, would appear, bringing as a result the destruction of the city of Rome and the Last Judgment.
?-Many new age spiritualists and philosophers ("new-agers") believe humankind will enter an age of enlightenment in 2012. There are a range of varying, generally positive, beliefs shared by a subset of spiritualists from the mundane to exceptional — including a positive social shift and age of peace, mankind becoming psychic and connected by a collective, and/or an evolution of the human race into non-corporeal beings made of "spiritual" energy, or light energy, i.e. 'ascension'.
?-Some alien-enthusiasts, along with some new-agers, believe 2012 to correspond approximately with the return of alien "watchers" or "caretakers" who might have helped the first human civilizations with developing their technology and may have been waiting for us to reach a higher level of technological and/or social advancement. Beliefs range from the extra-terrestrials having benevolent purposes — such as to help human society evolve — to malevolent purposes — such as enslavement of mankind and/or manipulation. [...]
??-the Nepalese ascetic Ram Bahadur Bomjon, the so-called "Buddha boy", reportedly told his followers that he would return around 2012.
??-Some proponents of a peak oil catastrophe place major events in 2012. Richard C. Duncan's book The Peak of World Oil Production and the Road To The Olduvai Gorge claims that the Olduvai cliff will begin and permanent blackouts will occur worldwide. Several studies predict a peak in oil production in or around 2012.

2012 (MMXII) will be a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar.
Predicted and scheduled events:

(see link for religious dates, etc occuring in 2012 itself)

2012 being a LEAP Year...?... how wry, because some proponents say humans will 'Leap' forward in human evolution during the 2012 ascension.

That (a "noosphere") already exists since time immemorial.

REAL energy/consciousness leaps:

Industrial Revolution (1850s)

Information Age (1980s)

Energy/Consciousness Regressions:

"The Archaic Revival" (Terence McKenna)

"I am an Indigo Child, you are not"

"Lets rip babies hearts out" (Mayans)

"Lets all trip out on Psychedelics"

"Lets leave everything behind and sit out in the desert and wait for aliens to pick us up"

Humans do this, everyday. It's just natural.


Could you post some news items or anything at all that shows how humans do this everyday and that its natural and native to human (rather than animalistic) behavior?

Exactly !

we objectively see the same thing.... a loose affiliation of avant-garde figures with a sprinkle of hubris to boot.

but you might read the newest information, it came through the researchers (web scanner personnel) @ www.stevequale.com
the home page of the Caeser Comet hypothesis:
survive2012.com...

this still needs to be fleshed out, but its new info!

If anything dark happens 2012 its because people keep affirming that it will.

2012 hype resulting in a self fufilling prophecy aside....

there's always the Sir Issac Newton claim that 2060 is the Year to Fear



but i'm willing to hear more about the 'Caesar Comet' orbiting every long period years (est ~1,025) being the cosmic harbinger of always present disaster, making a return in 2012.

I kind of bought into the whole 2012 thing at one time to,but as you pointed out there have been 100's of doomsdays predictions.Everytime one comes and gos a new one is made,with a new story behind it.Hence 2012 being the mayan calender.

I even read the article you linked but did not find any indicator that this comet would be any different than hundreds of others.

hmmmm... at first i was going to counter your message


until i learned this:


... Robert Bast is a leading researcher and commentator on the 2012 meme

www.ibtimes.com...

the originator of the Caeser Comet theory ...and the ? fanciful ?
timing of the recurring orbit dates...is not a disinterested commentator as i was led to believe... Robert Bast is very much wrapped up in the 2012 meme, and this smell lkie another angle to sell stories & capture imaginations.


thanks,

Your research enthusiasm is appreciated, but it might be wise investing it in other areas of the unexplained...

Every 2012 endeavor seems to end up in some type of disillusionment.

naw... not yet anyhow

seeing as how 2012 touches/intersects with wormwood, nibiru, revelations, seers, time cycles, cosmic tsunami' etc...

I spent some time along the shores of Lake Atitlan in the Guatemalan mountains two years ago this week. I spent some time with a Mayan Shaman. I asked him about 2012. He didn't speak English nor Spanish. I had to speak to him through his apprentice.

He stated that to the Mayans it is the dawn of a new, higher consciousness not the end of the world. All these books, movies and tv shows have no idea what they are talking about...

Take it easy,

Skyfloating hello,

You could be right we really won't know about Dec. 21, 2012 until Dec. 21, 2012

BUT

weather something major happens on this date or not to me isn't the issue the issue for me is knowing why I was sent here.

I have no doubt that an event is going to happen that was to be an extinction event. Our families from the skies are here and trying to lesson the blow.

Many of us have been sent here to help when this time comes and as time passes abductees that agreed to come here to help will wake.

Time is ticking

Not sure if someone already posted this because I didn't read every reply...
The Mayan calendar doesn't put Dec 21st 2012 as the end of the world. The calendar ends its cycle on that date, but when they were around, that date didn't exist. Their calendar is in alignment with the stars and constellations. They're saying everything will be aligned on that date, then the new cycle begins.
