You are ridiculous if you think some great calamity will occur this year because the Mayan calendar is going to end. Even thinking that some magical

their own purposes.
What makes your "real" fears any more "real" than what anyone else feels or experiences?
Let's see. When was the the last Apocalypse? Oh yeah, there wasn't one. And how many times has it been predicted? Far too many. Those fears are
Of course the world could end in split second, because of some freak event of nature, but the odds are extremely low of it happening at any time. Why
dwell on that?
Why not think of more Earthly matters, like the fact that Israel wants to blow up Iran? A place that took it's land by force, isn't recognized as a
country by at least a couple dozen countries. Or what about the increasing wealth gap between the rich and the poor? You like your civil rights? Do
you like them even as everything you do is being watched more closely all the time? These are a handful of things I fear and they are VERY real.
What is the difference as to whether or not Niburu shows its ugly head, Yellowstone ruptures, the poles shift, the world economy goes belly up,
a nuclear war breaks out, or mass revolution envelops the globe?
The point is that everyone is focused on a date that the SHTF and that is absurd. There is NO evidence that will occur as people think. The Mayans DID
NOT predict it. Any of the things you said could happen, except Niburu. That is a joke as well. What is the point of thinking any one of those event
is going to occur in 2012 and much less on 12/212012, or whatever the special day is now? There is no good reason to think it. It's just a phantom
fear that says we are hopeless.
Either way - all of these are the end of the world as we know it. All of these scenarios mark the end of an era. All of these are plausible
things that just might happens, some of which have been building for so much time, that there is a head just waiting to be popped.
Is the end of the age, according to the Mayan calendar. We probably even misinterpreted the day the new age begins.
Actually, when I look at the calendar, we are 14 days away from entering the age of April! OMG!
You speak of fear as if it makes a difference what you fear. You either fear or you don't. It doesn't matter what it is.
I truthfully don't know what you're getting at.
Whether you like it or not, whether any of the deniers LIKE IT OR NOT, one day this world that is set in front of us is going to come to an end
- this is reality.
I don't think the deniers are saying that the world is always going to be here. If they are saying what I'm saying, then it's stupid to think that
people thousands of years ago predicted when it was going to happen. It's counter productive to think that the world is going to end at a certain
"I'm going to go to college."
"Why bother? The world is about to end."
"Honey, do you think it's about time to have children?"
"No, the worlds about to end dear."
"Lets all get wasted everyday from now on!"
"Right on! World's about to end anyways!"
Who then will be more prepared... those who foresaw it coming and were perhaps a little obsessed with its arrival... or those who ignored it
and abashed those who chose to be prepared instead of ignorant?
How do you prepare for the end of the world? Your obsession will be wasted energy you could have used for something a little more closer to
I daresay the former, my friend. But you speak of fear. Fear this, fear that... and I say - fear nothing.
So why even prepare for the end if you don't fear it, hmm?
Acknowledge all. Prepare for all possibilities. Deny ignorance. But most of all... fear nothing.
Never leave the house. Stay curled up in a ball of constant fear in bed.
It's not that I don't fear the end of the world, I just don't consider it to be a possibility in the near future.
Fear is going to get you absolutely nowhere.
Fear is productive, but not when it's focused on far out ideas around 2012 and the like.
I can already answer the question - "What the hell was I thinking?"
Survival of the fittest. Paving the way for a chance at a better future. Because in the current world - there is no future.

Yeah well, if people weren't so focused on bogus ideas, maybe they could focus more on the current world. You've taken my point of my OP and said
that's why it's good to believe in the 2012 crap. I don't buy it. You would be "fitter" if you didn't.
