I don't want to rain on anyone's doom and gloom parade but I thought maybe for a second we could all use rational thought and common sense and stop
with the fear mongering and 2012 hype. Cool? Ok..
I think most of us here lived through the dreaded Y2K scenarios and all we received the next day were hangovers and not end of the world prophecies
come true (although some of those hangovers might have felt like it!)
Here is my prediction for what will happen in 2012....NOTHING. Got that?
Ok, one more time....NOTHING...
well, nothing much anyway, or shall we say, nothing out of the ordinary. Let's take a look -
In case you are interested here is a list of Natural Disasters from Wikipedia -
Lots of floods and earthquakes. Even famines, diseases and wow lookie, blizzards!
All ranging from every time period and place on the globe.
But this is 2012 you say, there is more crazy stuff happening now than at any other time!
Or is there?
I suggest you all read this article about earthquake averages and if there has been more than normal recently. It is very eye opening and has lots of
Ok, ok, you say, you get it. Natural disasters are just random, they hit, they kill and injure people and there's not much we have ever been able to
do about that. It's the Solar Flares that will get us!
Here is a handy dandy list of all the most powerful solar flares recorded since 1976 (so it doesn't include everyones fave, the Carrington event also
known as Best Flare Ever!) There are lots of impressive numbers like X10, X17 and even....X28! Yet, here we are....
As I mentioned, I am not trying to burst any bubbles but your chances of being in a natural disaster or a world ending solar flare storm are just as
good now as they ever have been. I'm not saying nothing will ever happen, actually quite the contrary, I'm sure something WILL happen, just as it
always has for all time.
The real dangers are not solar flares, earthquakes, pole shifts, aliens or comets. It's US. Wars, corruption, hate, fear, jealousy, you know, regular
human stuff that kills people every second of every day.
2012 is not special.
We are not special people living in a special time.
BUT Yes, I agree with some of you. Something amazing is happening right now!
It's called LIFE, go live it....
And chill out, we'll always have 2013
