they all seem really clued in to "another realm." which is where we'll have to look to find the answers to the end of the world.

The Mayans aren't the only ones that have apocalypse prophecies dated to be around 2012.

Shouldn't this thread be under predictions and prophecies?

Possibly - but a few years late huh?!

Anyways, the earth won't end in terms of the planet getting all off track and killing everything on it. I mean, it it was that Dec 21st 2012 is really the end of the world then why the hell would aliens want it? We know they want the minerals etc but again, perhaps it is end of life (day to day) as we know it and we will be more enlightened and perhaps get confirmation of alien existance as they lead us into concentration camps LOL...

Hell who knows!!

The etymology of the word is derived from Megiddo. Megiddo is an ancient mound-settlement. The nearby hill is called Mount Megiddo (="Har-Megiddo"). I have seen it. Not a very interesting hill. That's where the word "Armegeddon" comes from. The Megiddo region was the site of many battles through pre-Christian history, mainly due to its strategic location on trade routes through the Carmel mountains.

The etymology has nothing to do with end-of-time notions.

Cheers.

named after the final conflict that took place there between the armies of the Egyptian pharaoh Thutmose III and a large Canaanite coalition led by the rulers of Megiddo and Kadesh

he utterly crushed his opposition leading to the word meaning "a final conflict,"
the previous poster has said that Armageddon didn't neccesarily mean the end of the world
when in fact
thats exactly what it does mean
that was a page ago anyway
you're playing catchup

Clearly empirical evidence points towards that ancient battle not being the end of the world though.... And in fact the battle of the armies gathered at Megiddo (in Revelation) is not the last battle at all - your link is not quite right (it should say that modern popular thought simplistically links "Armegeddon" with the end of the world, whereas the Bible in fact is much more complicated - popular mistake is not the same as etymology):

The armies are gathered at Har-Megiddo in Ch16:16. After that, the armies are in fact slain (Ch19:19-21). And after that Satan is defeated and bound up for a thousand years (Ch20:3). And then, even later we have yet another battle, an even bigger one - the proper and aparrently final one (Ch20:7-9). So not only are the armies gathered at Har-Megiddo not there at the end of the world (cos there are at least another thousand years), they are not even the ones who fight the final battle. The etymology just is really not there for you (and I don't think there is any evidence that the author of the Book of Revelation believed that the term Har-Megiddo meant the end of the world either - it has come to be associaed with it becasue of that book - he just meant it to represent notions of great and decisive battles, which is something different).

Incidentally, while every source online I can find basically states that the ancient name Megiddo is of completely unknown etymology (originally that is), I do have a book on my shelf that claims it means "robbers" (well, rather that Har-Megiddo means "Hill of Robbers"), but refuses to give references for that..... any clues?

Yes, playing catchup, cos the website directs me to the penultimate page instead of the last one when I click the little double arrow for some reason! Grrr.

I'd like to point out at this point that you are taking me out of context
the previous poster had said



The seventh day would be the 1000 years of peace that comes after Armageddon, right?



to which I replied the biblical claim about armageddon was pretty final
or sort of
you get the gist anyway
glad its not just me who keeps getting directed to page 27 then
sometimes this site makes me question my sanity
as long as I keep questioning it then thats healthy
i think

No, well, the thing is that there is a thousand yeas of peace after Armegeddon, according to the Book of Revelation (the thousand years where Satan is bound up), as I stated above. Yay for living a few pages ago - I find this more interesting than telling people that Merlin didn't exist, and that even if he did, we have no prophecies by him.....!

ok then I'm obviously confusing the bible with that fictional movie
funny how easy it is to do that

Merlin didn't exist ?
go tell that to the Templars who sailed to america
or if you prefer got to greece and tell it to the spartans

Greetings...

It has long been believed that this time will bring forth a shift in our understanding of reality. A new understanding will take the place of the old. The way we think of and interpret reality will be forever changed.

This is what is meant be "time as we know it will cease to exist". Because reality, as we know know & understand it will cease to exist.

A new light, a new consciousness will envelope the world. And we will step into a new form of existence; which will involve a global consciousness.


Here is another mode of thought for what this date in our history stands for:

"According to many Earth legends, the Zep Tepi return at the beginning and end of each time cycle, the 13,000 year half-point of our solar system - 26,000 year zodiacal orbit around galactic center. Because of conditions on our galactic orbit, these 13,000 year intervals or worlds, seem to be separated by cataclysmic upheaval, as history teaches.

The 'calendar in stone' of the Great Pyramid, describes the so-called Phoenix Cycle of our galactic orbit, the present time period ends (converted to our present calendar) in the year 2012 AD. The Greek word Phoenix, derived from the Egyptian word, Pa-Hanok, actually means, The House of Enoch."

You can read the full story here: www.crystalinks.com...

Thank you.

do you know what Zep Tepi is ?
btw crystalinks is not a good source

e.g.

The Greek word Phoenix, derived from the Egyptian word, Pa-Hanok, actually means, The House of Enoch."

www.etymonline.com...

phoenix
O.E. and O.Fr. fenix, from M.L. phenix, from Gk. phoinix "mythical bird," also "the date" (fruit and tree), also "Phoenician," lit. "purple-red," perhaps a foreign word, or from phoinos "blood-red."

Preposterous and completely ignorant.

It takes about 225 million years for the solar system to orbit the galactic center.

As was said, Tehuti, Crystalinks is a sorry excuse for a reference.

He must have misspoke because he is talking about the precession of the equinox, or at least thats what might take around 26,000 years give or take. Also, the earth is about 26,000 light years from galactic center. So if the galaxy went through a seyford explosion for example, the light would get here at the same time that the great cycle begins and ends. Well, at least I would see the new blue star appearing in the center of the milky way (seyford explosion) as a good starting point. I dont know about the aliens or whatever else he thinks is going on.. the "cataclysmic upheaval" as he said, along with the iridioum and rhodium in layers every 13 to 26,000 years fits in with the seyford explosion idea. Especially since every spiral galaxy goes through this. I think somewhere near 10% are doing it right now.

Yes.

It is a moment marking the beginning of the Epoch known as Zep Tepi, or "The First Time", which stretched from the beginning of the world to the triumphant ascension of the star-King Horus to the throne of Ancient Egypt, the Cosmic Kingdom on Earth.


My apologies for the bad reference. It was meant only to be another's view on the subject. Not a reference containing any specific facts; as there aren't actually any at all in regards to this subject. It's all hypothesis.

But it would appear as ViolatoR pointed out, this person has misspoken in some of his/her references.

Such is life on the Web.

Thank You.

Zep Tepi is in fact the mythological ancient egyptian period (only) when their gods were said to have walked the earth
Horus was the god of the sky
Egypt was not a Cosmic kingdom on earth
what have you been reading Tehuti ?

I don't think the world will end in 2012 as in life comes to the end, I believe what we will see its a like a "rebirth" on this planet. In a spiritual sense, like a global awakening.

Personally I think it's ridiculous to believe that the world will just suddenly end on a single specific date. If the world was ever to end it would definitely be gradual and we would see it coming by now . Just because a few people in the past used general and vague terms to describe what's going on today accurately does not mean the "end" that they predicted will happen.

About the planet X theory....if true it means that every 3600 years this "planet" comes around and pretty much annihilates our planet with it's immense gravitational forces.. Now I'm confused because if this were true and 90 percent of crops DID fail due to flooding and such then how could the humans that were found 160 thousand years ago procreate up until now so many times if every 3600 years they would just be "reset" in a way....let's date back to 3600 years back from 2012....did anything significant happen then that is FACTUAL and not BIBLICAL that will prove this? I'm no historian so I don't know but I need some significant proof before I'll believe some planet's gravity will cause alot of crap to happen which frankly to me doesn't even sound possible (3 mile high tidal waves..?!....) but then again I''m no physicist either...

I don't understand though, why do you guys try so hard to tie loose ends together to predict an end of the world? Don't you have any hope for civilization at this point? Judging from the posts it seems like many of you guys WANT this to happen for some reason?!

Anyway in the end we never really know. I simply hate living in fear of things that are not concrete. It puts a hamper on my life personally because it's constantly running through my head no matter what I'm doing. It's like everytime I have a good time in my life now I constantly think back to what "might" happen and I get scared of losing it all. Now I know we're all supposed to die some day but to me it's sort of like living knowing that you will die within the next 5 years (if it's true). I might be alone on this but I think it's better living life ignorant of the day you'll die because if you know when you "might" die you constantly fear what is to come since you are knowledgeable of the date.

Sorry for the emotionally driven post but for the past week or so this has been kind of tearing at me. Does anyone feel the same?

In other words "Nothing will happen" so why be bothered about a specific date?
