That being the world of superstition.
In 2013 we will all get on with our lives in a more practical way.
Free from paranoia.
Free to worry about dangers we can detect such as asteroids and comets etc.

One of the best known Catholic prophets to predict that the Pope after John Paul II would be the last was Irishman Maelmhaedhoc O'Morgair who is better known as simply St. Malachy. According to the prophecies of St. Malachy, who was born in 1094, the line of Pontiffs has come to an end. St. Malachy, canonized by by Pope Clement III on July 6, 1199, undertook to list in advance the proper succession of Roman pontiffs from Celestine II to "the end of the world". St. Malachy prophesied that there would be 112 Popes after Celestine II. John Paul II, who just died, is number 110. Pope number 111 would be the "False Prophet" mentioned in St. John's Revelation and who will deliver the Roman Catholic Church to Satan. Number 112 will NOT be a legitimate Pope. It will be the "Grand Anti-Pope" or the Anti-Christ who is also known as the "Abomination that Causes Desolation" mentioned in Daniel 9:27, 11:31, 12:11 and Matthew 24:15 and Mark 13:14. The Prophecies of St. Malachy conclude thusly: "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock among many tribulations; after which the seven hilled city (Rome) will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people".
Pope number 111 would be the False Prophet !The Pope we have now is the 111.
Macchu Picchu for example - no modern effort has come anywhere close to showing how they built it - none that I know of anyway; will re-check it again
Basically, there's loads of curious stuff that simply cannot be logically explained with much satisfaction by people like Stereologist[/.quote]
I always appreciate being given such a warm statement of approval. Isn't it curious how people have to be close minded to the possibility that ancient man was smart. People are so close minded when they stoop to making absurd claims about magic, and unknown energies, and a lot of other rot.
Actually I find it funny that someone makes a claim, stands by it, and then asserts:
demanding evidences that are going to be pretty damn hard to come by
This is a very clear acknowledgment that this is make up malarkey.
Stereo - just because I don't hold Sitchin in the high esteem I used to, doesn't mean I agree with you on these particular matters, as you can see from this post.
Thanks again. I appreciate it when someone sees clear and demonstrable evidence that this 2012 nonsense is make up gibberish, and then takes the close minded approach.
Being close minded means rejecting evidence. Close minded means sticking to a claim despite the overwhelming evidence against it. Close minded means not looking for the evidence that can support or refute a position.
