I don't know how to begin this, but I'll start by saying that this is bound to be a long winded read, so you may want to bail now if you aren't in
I don't know what to make of the impending doom that is 2012. I feel like I learned about the Mayan calendar and the idea that something could
coincide with the calendar cycle at that time around the time I was 13, in maybe 7th grade in a school textbook. This was 1993-94 maybe. I had not
been exposed to the internet or the ideas related to it, or the topics you might find on here. I did have an interest in JFK though, that had been
spurred years earlier. Anytime between then and the time I really began to become exposed to more of the ideas concerning 2012, and even until now
I've had this feeling, the same feeling you might feel if you thought someone was watching you, or talking about you, just one of those feelings that
you get. Well, I've had the feeling that "something" might happen, but I've never had a theory as to what.
As I sat tonight watching Apocalypse 2012 on CNBC, so many thoughts came to my mind. But mainly, if the calamity that many thought would happen, did
happen, why do they assume even with their safeguards they would survive?
I often think of the movie 2012 because it echoes many ideas that people have about things that may happen in those end times. From volcanoes to
earthquakes to pole shifts and tsunamis many ideas are covered, and many of those were brought up by people spoken to in this program.
In the event of worldwide catastrophe as depicted in the movie, and believed by many the only survivors in my opinion will be those of sheer luck. No
amount of preparation will do you any good. The only ones who survive would be ones who just luckily happened to be in a place that wasn't as harshly
In the program, there were a group of people who were taking refuge in some sort of complex in Arizona; there were others who were building elaborate
underground complexes that seemed to extend many levels. But major earthquakes across entire plates due to pole shifts would surely crush or otherwise
make any underground shelter a lost cause. Waves coming inland and covering the entire US or other landmasses would, bury you under a new ocean.
300 foot or taller tsunami waves would destroy any boat I could think of, surely any boat known to be in existence today, regardless of the size.
Then, what becomes of the thousands of nuclear power plants spread across the globe. In the event of mass earthquakes, land shifts, tsunamis, and
other destruction, would these facilities not release tons of radiation into the water and atmosphere? If so, and by some chance you did survive the
initial destruction, how long would fallout last from 1000's of nuclear plants?
I don't know what to think about what may come on that day, I think we as people are more likely to cause the "something" I've always felt, than
some celestial or geologic event. But I certainly believe that regardless of what you do, if you believe the ideas present in regards to what may
happen then you can't prepare. Save your time, save your money, save your sanity. In the event of any of these ideas becoming reality, luck is more
likely to decide your fate than your stockpiled beans and underground complex.
What are your thoughts, do you think that if any scenario were to pan out that preparation would save you, or anyone?
