They challenge his belief system, his "religion" if you will. Further, such violent reaction often betrays an underlying insecurity. What is perceived as a "challenge" MUST be met in such manner, lest is shake his belief at it's very core.

MY irrational interpretation of 2012? Have you not been following very closely, or are you just incapable of rational observation?
I case you hadn't noticed, I'll point it out for you - I don't buy into the 2012 hype, either. However, I'm secure enough in my own beliefs to not feel a need to attack these folks or irrationally lash out at them for THEIR beliefs.
I reserve that distinction for the True Believers.
Me, I'd rather discuss things like an adult.
Can you explain WHY you feel a need to lash out against the "other", if it isn't fear based? More specifically, how does THEIR beliefs affect YOU, or your own world view, to that degree?
I mean EXPLAIN, not go off on another emotion-laden rant, complete with expletives and verbal assaults of name-calling.
How does THEIR belief system threaten YOURS to that degree?

My first thought is: humans will save themselves first and then forget out their pets trapped indoors. How about those pet stores and zoos? Aren't these animals supposed to go outdoors and into nature as well? I think we are being fool and selfish.
