Worse case scenario, the earth itself will no longer exist because of whatever totally catastrophic, cataclysmic, ELE event one chooses to believe
will occur. There will be nothing to talk about and no one to talk to about it as our existence will no longer exist. Depending upon your thoughts
of afterlife there may be a way of conveying WTF happened, but for sake of argument, no one will be able to talk about anything.
Best case scenario, depending on your views, absolutely nothing abnormal will occur. The clock will change to 11:38:01 PM (UTC), according to our
perception of time and assumed accuracy of our calendar, and another moment of time will simply have passed us by without any significant change.
People will be awaiting the moment in various ways across the world. Some will probably be praying, others partying "like it's 1999", and others
in isolation preparing for whatever they believe may happen.
Between best case and worse case lies other scenarios. Maybe it will be enlightenment. An instantaneous moment of global enlightenment that will
take all 7 billion people of the world into harmony in ways we can't even imagine. Maybe there will be a pole shift with widespread destruction that
will only leave 500 million people alive that have to essentially "start over" from the beginning. Maybe the NWO will take over at the strike of
midnight and the news agencies will be too busy to notice because of all the 2012 related stories they'll be telling. Maybe there will be an friggin
alien shark with friggin lasers that will instantaneously melt all the ice on Antarctica and show the remains of an ancient civilization but we'll
never know about it because the world will be flooded.
Chances are that on Saturday, December 22, 2012 we'll log in to ATS as there will be numerous threads regarding all the headlines and our own
thoughts on what did or didn't happen. I'll probably stumble on here hungover from a "2012 Winter Solstice Party" to see if ATS survived.
There will probably be at least one thread about a mass suicide who didn't want to endure the destructive power of Nibiru and decided to instead take
their lives. Others will be about "what did you do to usher in TEOTWAWKI" and yet others still will be flocking to the 2012 forum looking for the
die hard believers to admit they were wrong and to give up their membership here because of it. The 2012 forum will no longer exist in its current
location but will be found instead in the HOAX forum.
What do I think will happen? Paragraph 1 has an extremely
small chance of happening, but maybe it will. Something in line with my thoughts of
paragraph 3 have a chance of happening but the most likely paragraphs to become true are 2 & 4.
The end IS coming and it's always been coming. Just like the countdown to death begins at the first moment you're alive. Humans have predicted
things for as long as we've been on this earth and will continue to do so regardless of the outcome of 2012. We don't have a very good track record
of them and as much as part of me wants to believe something significant will happen in my lifetime, on that day, and maybe at that exact moment, most
of me finds it difficult to believe for a variety of reasons. We live in a world of unknowns striving to gain knowledge to as many knowns as we can.
Isn't that what prophecy is? An attempt to give us a known. Knowledge gives us power and comfort and by doing so tries to take away the fear of the
887 days and counting...
