If I remember correctly in 2000 it was only the computers that where supposed to get fired. This is a far cry from the Hollywood and other hype that we are hearing about for this date of 2012.
Supposedly the ancient calendars end in 2012 (depending on which 'experts' you ask.) If true, this may mean the end of the world, or the end of the age. If it means anything.
are there predictions of that year anywhere in history?
the Tibetan Monks were scientifically shown to produce gamma waves
The god of the Cross will appear, heralded by a blue fireball in the sky
You need to also keep in mind that their calender somehow exists 1,000 years before the Maya. So it was not them who created it.
& natural disasters are increasing dramatically...
The CIA's mathematical genius refused to comment
The Web Bot manages many headlines & is relatively accurate.
The solar flare and polar shift are astronomical events that cannot be avoided. The solar flare is scheduled for 2012 & has the possibility of setting us back into the stone age.
What "evidence" have you shown for all your 'debunking' claims? All I've read is you typing and assuming to have the weight of God upon your misinformed words. I really shouldn't humor with a response, but here I go.
while the evidence clearly shows that nothing out of the norm is happening.

Hey, I'm against people sticking their heads in the sand but I'm also against getting worked up and panicking over something that hasn't happened yet.
As for not doing research, does the content posted on ATS not count as research or should people just ignore everything that is posted backing up peoples claims. That doesn't mean you should agree with what's posted, people will come to their own conclusion and discuss it.
What do you want me to say, I "know" we are all going to die, mass deaths will happen, and we're all screwed just to make you happy?
It is only my opinion and a response to a worried member who voiced concerns at the predictions being made.
Most of the claims are merely conjecture and people looking for correlations from data to support such theories.
Take the increase in earthquake activity. That may be proven yet to say that is directly responsible for the run up to the end of the world is bordering on being a little naive.
Ok, you can say, well look at the bigger picture and put all the pieces of the puzzle together. The conclusion will still only be a guess.
People still can't predict an earthquake or the exact moment of a volcano erupting. Yet to say the prediction of the end of the world must be right and anyone who disagrees has no clue beggars belief.
And, yes it might happen but who knows? You sure don't.
1) No 2012 solar flare? NASA has warned of a "super solar storm" in 2012....
We are currently two years into Cycle 24 and the predicted size continues to fall.
If they later retracted all of it and said "oops, we made a mistake, it's actually 2013 & our calculations for yrs were wrong" then you'd be gullible to believe they did not do that due to a huge increase in public panic. Michio Kaku even claimed they would likely "push back" the date so it's not on 2012.
2) There is such a thing as pole shift. It's even called "the Cataclysmic pole shift hypothesis" & supposedly "The poles have reversed 170 times in the past 100 million years." This is AKA geomagnetic reversal, but to say it's one or other is merely semantics.
3) Poles never shifted? There is evidence the poles have shifted.
Yes, here's the link of the study on the monks producing gamma waves.
5) The Maya had astronomical techniques not rediscovered until 4,000 years later by Kepler.
You seriously think there's not been a rise in global disasters?
7) The mass animal deaths is highly unusual. Michio Kaku commented there has been 93 reported cases a year.
This Stereologist is quite the amusing character. I have a difficult time responding to someone that contradicts many things w/o providing any backbone to the statements.
Instead of going to NASA you go to a blog for your evidence? Why is that? Is it because you know this is old and out of date information. The present prediction is for a less than average solar maximum in 2013. Weird isn't it? I am providing a link from NASA. It's from January of this year Solar Cycle Prediction
Using old data is simply your way to perpetrate a fraud. Don't worry. You are in good company with lots of other hoaxers.
It's not semantics. A pole shift is a made up claim by Hancock who borrowed the idea from Hapgood who called them something else. A pole shift is a rotational issue. A magnetic reversal does not involve the rotational axes. These are very different issues. If you don't understand the difference you are not alone.
Magnetic north pole shift:
Sometimes the field completely flips. The north and the south poles swap places. Such reversals, recorded in the magnetism of ancient rocks, are unpredictable. They come at irregular intervals averaging about 300,000 years; the last one was 780,000 years ago. Are we overdue for another? No one knows. .
Thanks for the link. I don't think that your conclusion that these people experience reality in a different way follows from is in the research.
The only increases are due to one factor: man. There are more people leading to more people being in the way of harm. The growing population forces people to use areas once considered unsafe or poor habitation zones. The actions of people drive disasters by deforestation, construction, and poor land management.
Actually Michio Kaku says that nothing unusual is happening. Please don't misrepresent what he made very clear.
Wow, so you think it's normal for NASA for year to be saying "Expect a super solar storm in 2012" but when panic rises they retract it and say "oh, it's 2013 now" when it's just 1 yr before the event? You're right, NASA always tells the truth and would never change their results to avoid panic or disruption of status quo....
It would be helpful if you used more evidence to back up your contradictory statements, then maybe people can take it serious. [.quote]
It would be helpful if you didn't use hoaxes as your evidence.
Thus, it's semantics.
It's not semanticsw. it's your inability to use terms as defined by those that invented the terms. A pole shift is in no way related to a magnetic reversal. A shift in the magnetic north pole or even written in sentence as a magnetic north pole shift misses the obvious that a pole shift is a noun and in magnetic north pole shift the word shift is a verb. It's not semantics, it's 3rd grade English.
thus "altered states of perceiving reality" is very appropriate when a man can access delta waves while awake or even gamma waves.
You have provided no evidence that these waves alter the perception of reality. That is unwarranted conclusion you have drawn. You seem to do that a lot.
You didn't understand my post. I said Michio Kaku said on Fox News there's 93 events in a year and that is what is "normal". So 150 events happening within a month is not "normal".
Again you are misrepresenting Michio Kaku. I knew that you were purposely misrepresenting what he said the first time I read what you wrote. You have a pension for that. It is glaringly obvious. Kaku made it very obvious that nothing usual was happening.
