Thankyou. I'll not pretend to have the right answers, but I'm convinced that there's some significance to all of this. There's just too many
ancient cultures saying similar sounding things about the same period of time to ignore it or dismiss it out of hand. We run the serious risk of
being recorded in history as conceited and arrogant. We look back on earlier times and consider them primitive. They believed the earth was flat,
they allowed their priests to tell them what was right and wrong and they never questioned it, even though the truth was glaring them in the face.
Nowadays, we're far more intelligent. We believe every word our scientists tell us instead, and never question it. Oh how advanced we are!
In any real life situation, the more witnesses who actually saw the events you can find and question, the more chance you have of finding the truth.
If you ask one person's account, and nothing else, you'll get 1 person's version of the truth. If you listen to the official version of the story,
and refuse to believe witness accounts that say differently, that's a whole other kind of ignorance.
All over the world we see huge structures that we can't explain and that don't fit with our view of the level of sophistication humanity had at the
time of construction. We see astrological data left by ancient cultures that far outstrips our own. In ancient texts, mixed up with cultural
religious symbology, we also see numerous accounts that this period of time we are in now is going to be one of major change, and it's all pointing
at around 2012ish. Many of us assumed that God or the cosmos worked on our calendar, and we assumed that it was going to be 2000. We were wrong.
Quite how your logic can then extend to "therefore life will continue on as we know it unchanged with no cataclysm or asteroid or earthquake that can
pose a danger to our civilisation will happen at all in the next 20 years" I really don't know. It smacks of arrogance and conceit to me, the idea
that we know what's really going on in the universe and we have enough hard data to sweep all of those witness accounts aside and make up our own
minds that everything's going to be fine, just fine.
