as evidenced by this company who will sell you a " 2012 proof bunker "

thats the tip of the iceberg - below them are thousands more snakeoil peddlers - all offering you " the solution " to 2012

"2012 fearmongering : its all about the money'

Many of them, although not all. Some are genuinely afraid and simply trying to warn people because they listened to some one who was fear-mongering-for-profit.

If something happens it is going to happen anyway. There is not a lot anyone can do to change it.More than likely it is just fear mongering and as OP stated a way to profit from the masses.
There are tonnes of different theories out there but in conclusion it is not really worth worrying about, either way.
I like this quote by Ghandi "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." and that is what I try to do.
Take Care, Regards

i really hope nothing happens.

btw, nice quote. and a good way to live your life.

i heard a good one the other day, which was quite cool.. it said,

when are the plants and animals are gone, only then will people realise they cant eat money.

the one i live by is.. live the life you love and love the life you live.

That is a Cree proverb I think your were referring to " Only when the last tree has died, the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we cannot eat money". A wise people. en.wikipedia.org...
I like the one you live by, short but straight to the point.

You can base every occurance on manipulation for wealth...
Not just 2012.

Y2K is another example.
Trust me, with the upcoming date, there will be plenty of people trying to make a buck.
'Capitalism' at it's worst.


Either way, no matter what happens:
It's better to be prepared...
...than to be caught off-guard.

This is a great forum to do both.

OP, these companies arent the ones who spread 2012 theories, its regular people like us on forums and kids on youtube that do that. These companies are just making money off a niche that has already been created, it's not their responsibility what people believe. All Im trying to say is sure people are making money off 2012, but they didnt make the 2012 theories, and I dont blame them for supplying a demand.
