After one disappointment after another, I have learned not to keep my hopes up anymore.

It's just too heartbreaking.

In other words, you want very large numbers of people to die.
Or are you so detached that you do not realise that this would be part of the transition process?

As crude as this sounds, I kind of agree.

I yearn for a simpler exsistence as well.

Obviously there are the issues of all the people that would die, and as such this is in the realm of fantasy and entertainment for me. ( which is kind of horrible in iteself..but I am only human)

I consider myself a sceptic and there are currently no logical "theories" out there. So I might sit around and daydream about leading a colony of survivours into a new age, but I know that the various "theories" thrown around ATS are nothing but the ranting of mostly bored people.

I've only ever been convinced once actually, The story of the Apocalypse that never happened, Y2K is legendary in my family since it took us months to get through all the bottled water and tinned beans. *grins*

So for me, ATS is entertainment, a shaky news source, and a social place.

Here's a good joke to pull on your friends when nothing happens.

A friend of mine had a Y2K party. As they counted down to the end of the year he snuck outside and headed for the main electrical box on the outside of the house. As they went 3, 2, 1 he grabbed the handle. At the scream of 0 he pulled the handle and all of the power went out. Really freaked some people out.

I thought I'd have to wait till the year 2038 to pull the same trick. Now I can see that these predictions come just about every other year. So when NOTHING happens please feel free to use this trick or anything else as a sweet little prank to make the non-event a fun moment.

I bought extra canned food just in case Y2K happened. When nothing happened, I started digging into my food. What's wrong with that?

I don't think there is anything wrong with a stash of food in the house. The problem with some Y2K nuts was that they quit their jobs, built compounds, stashed multiple years worth of food, collected an arsenal, etc. And then nothing happened. I would recommend a little moderation in people. Sure, keep a little stash of non-perishable food on hand. What if the power goes off for a few days due to a storm? What if people get snowed in unexpectedly? What if there is a local bad flood? I keep food around the house just in case. I don't stock up a year or more of goods.

Good post and in depth thoughts. I am quite prepared if nothing happens, in fact I have even made plans that go beyond that date. I know that human thoughts create things and events, and I really wish everyone would think good thoughts, instead of bad thoughts all the time. Things will happen, that is a fact, Earth follows a cycle just like everything on Earth does, and one day it will die and be reborn, just like we humans are, time after time. Will it happen in 2012? I don't know, and no one else knows either.
All we can possibly do is guess.

Hello Mr Poopra-

Well I would have to say over the last couple of years I have seen alot of changes in the world that have not been good to say the least. Our government (US) has gotten bolder and bolder on the lies they try and tell us as truth. In my opinion our way of life is going to change drasticlly in the comming years. Just looking at the BP oil spill you know there are going to be some major major problems that we will now face.

Our government is so corrupt it will not last as it is right now for long. If the United States government doesn't clean up its act and start showing compassion for the people, there will be some type of civil war. I think many people in the United States are about to go over the edge. There will be so much violence that the police won't have the manpower to stop it. If 10 percent of the US population rose up that would be 30 million people, who in the US could stop 30 million people? 10 percent is a very low number and it would probably be more like 30 percent. Once that happened, i'm sure people from other countries would attack us and try and take over and that wouldn't be good for anyone..

So to answer your question I would live life as I am right now, which is to try and better my life each day I wake up. Will something happen? I don't know, but what I do know is if we don't make some major changes we are all in big trouble.

Hoping that something happens just because it can in some way make you demonstrate to yourself what you’re capable of, is ludicrous. If anyone feels the need to tap into that part of themselves I suggest you read a couple of books on edible plants and how to hunt and maintain meat fresh for later consumption, get a backpack, pack some stuff that you´ll need a step outside your door and walk until civilization and modern society means nothing to you.

Wishing for these events to happen is very sad especially if you consider that most of them imply that a large quantity of people and other life forms will die, and it only shows how disconnected some beings can be. Of course, I agree with Mr Poopra all the threads seem to come from escapists, people that in some way can´t conform with the life that has been presented to them or that they have failed to secure for themselves.

Just to be clear I also believe that something cataclysmic will occur in my lifetime but I hope it won’t, that hope is the very same reason why I don´t physically prepare for any scenario, and I also believe that if such a thing ever does come to pass that humanity would have evolved sufficiently to work together and rise up to the occasion. No matter how much canned food you store in bunker, one day you´ll have to face the outside world.

I´m preparing myself every day for the next day, that next day isn´t guaranteed and nearly every day of my life I have put myself in hypothetical scenarios meditating in the right course of action if any of these things were to occur. Until now I’ve only found theories based on guess work and don´t consider them sufficient for me to apply any more free time.

All I can say is that I hope they don’t and if they do that I’m mentally prepared to handle them and not the other way round. I agree with stereologist moderation is the key and we should never let ourselves become too emotionally involved with these theories (must of them are dis-info anyway).

Good question by the way.

That is too funny, stereo. But it seems like you have nailed it. Nothing will happen. I know in that doom thread, I have posted about something that will happen. They will brush it off as a natural occurance and we will still be here. When 2012 comes and goes, we will still be here. It has been like this for quite a while now, it seems.

I am not going to give any information about how this nothing will manifest. It seems nothing happened yesterday, or did it? Did people kill people in the name of God, yesterday? Yes! Was there child molestation yesterday? Yes! Was there all kinds of evil acted out yesterday? Yes! Were there good people struggling to live up to their proffesed claims of goodness? Yes! Were there people who failed to do the good they wanted to do? Yes!

Kind of sounds like it is armageddon, daily, around this world. This is nothing?

You will need to do "the work" and find your answers there.

S & F for your OP

You are correct that people kill people for god and there is crime and pestilence and death and terrible things happen all along including floods, quakes, storms, and fires. These are part of the world we live in. Is it amageddon? No. Do we wish it weren't so? Most people might say that. Should we work to improve the world we live in by changing the things we can control? That's a good idea like limiting arms, curing diseases, feeding people, etc.

Isn't there an expense associated with preparation? The expense has to be weighed against the risk. Should a large cost be applied or a moderate cost?

I certainly do not think any of these cataclysmic events is going to happen. It doesn't hurt to have some extras on hand such as a flashlight, a few days of nonperishable food, some water, and a good book to read while waiting for normalcy to return such as the snow plows getting to you or flash flood waters to end or the power to be restarted.

I am ready for nothing. I can't speak for many people in here. Most of them won't be able to deal easily with nothing happening.

I believe...

America suffers from a psychosis wherein the multitudes fantasize that the fastest way to "a simpler life" is the untimely demise of 90+ % of the population leaving us to abandon our mortgages and credit card bills and walk the Earth collecting our newly inherited wealth free from the burdens of waking life in the 21st century.

This manifests itself in the fantasy of collective annihilation so vividly entertained in the multitudes of disaster thread on this, the premier disaster web site.

The truth, I fear, is a much slower strangulation of civilization and the inevitable final decay of our once great culture.

Of all the disaster films I treasure, the world portrayed in SOYLENT GREEN comes closest to what I think is in store for our future (not the "people are food" part, just the collective socialist life in the city and the "going home" part) . The movie is awesome for the interaction between Heston and Robinson. Plus the opening montage is brilliant

After preparing for decades for disaster, I am finally ready for nothing to happen.

The end of the world where everyone dies but me will just be me, in fact dying.
