Here's the problem, most of the doom addicts who support and get excited over all the doom and gloom predictions seem to assume almost everyone else will die... except them (a few actually do have a death wish though). These folks have delusions of grandeur. They think they are special and have some destiny and the only thing holding them back is the #ty current world, when they're really not special at all. They keep talking about how they want a fresh start and they'd rather live in an post apocalyptic world yadayada. But you have to have a few screws loose to assume that if a disastrous world changing event happens, that kills of billions of people, somehow you'll be that hero that survives and roams around in the aftermath kicking ass and having fun in a new world.
These people watch too many zombie/post apocalypse movies and think they are going to be just like the survivors/hero in those movies when in reality they'll probably die before they even knew what hit them just like everyone else. What good is a "new world" if you're not alive to see it? You people need to stop thinking you'll survive through an apocalypse, it wouldn't be an apocalypse if it was that easy to survive.
So stupid to hope for the death of billions of your fellow man because you have this ridiculous delusion that you and your loved ones will survive just because you stocked up a few guns and some canned food in your basement and want it to happen. If it is an apocalyptic world changing event, there's an extremely high chance you will die too and then all your wishing and hoping to see a new world won't mean anything, you won't even exist anymore.
And not to mention to those who say always say they "feel the end is near" or "feel something big is coming", NO that feeling means NOTHING, people have felt like that FOREVER. Study history there's been people crying doom and gloom and predicting end of the world for thousands of years and it hasn't happened, you are no different than them it is just a part of humanity and largely an influence of religions. The only difference now is silly doom predictions can spread faster and wider now because of the internet. There's a bit of an increase of people spewing crap about the end of the world recently because of all the 2012 folklore but I remember right before 2000 there was a similar pick up in doom frenzy and then nothing happened and it died down a bit again, go figure.
See ya in 2013, sorry you're so selfish you can't appreciate your life for what it is and want billions of people to die for your own desires/beliefs of how the world should be. Hitler did too.edit on 29-9-2011 by darkest4 because: (no reason given)

See ya in 2013, sorry you're so depressed and selfish that you can't appreciate your life for what it is and want billions of people to die for your own desires/beliefs of how the world should be. Hitler felt the same way.
It is born out of the knowledge that for the future to even have a future...this S *HYTE has got to go, and its dug in so deep, that it can only be fixed by a return to baseline. Just like a wild fire burns out the old to allow for a beautiful new beginning, so must our world "as we know it" go the way of the DoDo bird.

If you think you can join the system to change it, you are deluding yourself. You will become it.
If you think you can use violence to punish the system, you are deluding yourself. You will be crushed.
If you think you can convince people of the error of their ways through diplomacy and dialogue, you are again deluding yourself. People usually only listen to what they want to hear.
So I can understand why people want everything to come to a cataclysmic end. It's a viable solution, however it is all based on luck and randomness. Odds are we are going to be stuck here and have to pay our bills next month.
