I remarked, in a previous post, that it wasn't easy to find threads on ATS making finding a connection between Revelation and "2012".
However I did come across the comment below;
There are many interesting parallels in the book of Revelations referring to a Dragon. The year 2012 represents the year of the dragon in the Chinese
calendar. Maybe just coincidence.
This was from a survey of what various sources had to say on the subject; the fact that the proposed Revelation connection was so thin rather proves
In fact the Chinese "year of the dragon" recurs every 12 years, on a repeating cycle, which reduces the significance of occurrence in 2012.
In any case, we could question whether "year of the dragon" would be an appropriate year.
For one thing, the Greek DRAKON is closer to a serpent than to a Chinese dragon, despite the similarity of English translation, so the "year of the
snake" would be more fitting.
Or we could point out, alternatively, that the end of Revelation is the time when the dragon is defeated, by the Lion or the Lamb. So a much more
appropriate year for that event would be the "year of the sheep".
Which all goes to show that this kind of coincidence is a very unreliable guide.
