Not that it matters much at this point since the gene pool is about as polluted as it can get.edit on 21-5-2011 by laiguana because: (no reason given)

Yes, the end of the world is coming, so the doomsdays believers say, mass hysteria set in, but as usual is it in human nature for some to end committing suicide, out of despair.
Why? because believe it or not people actually are preparing for the end of world, many will commit suicide if it doesn't happen.
This is no new people had done this before.
Now should those that are doing the prediction of doomsday publicly be prosecuted if the end of the world fails again like it had in previous predictions?
I say, yes they should be made to pay for the death of Innocent trusting people, including religious figures.
23 FAILED PREDICTIONS FOR 1998
45 failed predictions for 1999
44 failed & 1 ambiguous end-of-the-world
predictions that were to occur between 30 & 1920 CE
The truth is that 2012 will come and go, some will die due to despair and mass hysteria, I think that the responsible parties should be gathered and prosecuted for this deaths.

Hypathetically, I have seen a huge hole open up on a freeway and stop just in time. Then I just pull over to the curb, sit on the roof, crack a tinnie and watch other cars fly down into the hole and let all those people die horrible deaths, instead of moving down the road and warnning them.
A Policeman askes my why I didn't do that and I answer, because I didn't make the hole I just saw it so I didn't really have duty of care to warn others...

How is the government at all have anything to do with the 2012 doomsday phenomenon? None of what you mentioned has the slightest relevance to the topic of this thread. Now I'm not a huge fan of the government, they are majorly corrupt and yes quite possibly many of them are criminals but that doesn't have a whole lot to do with the damage being done by 2012 proponents.
