Nice thread. Unfortunately it won't make a difference. The belief in doomsday/ascension is a religion unto itself at this point. So no amount of logic is going to cause these followers to abandon their god. Just look at how many people in this thread are making claims regarding the Mayan calendar that I and others have debunked in almost every thread on the topic. I even have a thread devoted entirely to how the Mayan calendar system works and still you have people claiming that the "Mayan calendar" (they can't even seem to learn that the Maya had multiple calendars) was more accurate than the Gregorian calendar. That's pretty hard to believe considering the haab was an exact 365 days.
Ok, I'm rambling and venting now. Once again great thread. Just don't expect it to change too many people's minds.

You want to hear a good doomsday warning? Read Revelation 12 about the woman being clothed with the sun, and then take a look at what happened to the constellation Virgo when Comet Elenin passed through it and 6 more constellations in the hebrew mazzaroth for a total of that magic number 7. The prophecy in Revelation 12 was fulfilled.
Makes you want to know how a prophet who lived 2500 years ago who didn't know math, could know that this event was going to happen in broad daylight when no one could see it because of blue sky, yet still happened eh? Last time this even happened was Christ's first coming. It happened again 2000 years later, maybe a prediction of his second coming? Gotta wonder, how someone that lived 2000+ years ago knew this was going to happen and in daylight no less when the stars are not visible.
Think about it. Why should now be so special? Why should today or tomorrow be any different than the millions of days that have come before, or the millions that will come after?
You’re absolutely certain the world economy is falling apart and the class war is starting tomorrow, or next week, or next month, or before the election, or after the election, and that civilization as we know it will collapse? This event has been predicted time and again since before the Great Depression.
Hey, remember when everyone said that the Y2K virus was going to be the end of us? Or that the LHC was going to kill us all? Neither of those things happened.
Impending doomsday officially cancelled!! (probably
