The skeptics are irrational....are you serious?
99.9999999% of all predictions on here dont happen. 99.9% of all predictions worldwide dont happen.
The odds of the world ending in 2012 are stupidly huge. You have more chance of an alien invasion
If you want people to tell you what you want to hear then obviously avoid the skeptics, if you want some help in getting to the answers you seek, then you have to accept, you can be wrong...and most probably are in regard to earth changing events in 2012.
As another poster said, wars dont count. They have been manufactured since the dawn of man, so they are inevitable, and highly likely this year.

If something happens then sure I'll admit I was wrong, why is that such a big deal? I think a lot of people would do the same. If something happens that maybe I scoffed at or thought was wrong previously then I'm woman enough to be the first to say "I'm sorry, I was wrong". But lets put the shoe on the other foot for a moment. What if nothing happens and we enter into 2013 without any massive world changing or ending event, will all of the 'believers' admit they were wrong? Or will they continually recalculate and say the date was off and the end is in a different year/time? There is only so much recalculating and re-figuring of doomsday dates someone can do and still expect to be believed.
So, it's almost certainly a waste of time to debate with believers. Believers only believe what they want to believe. They are irrational.
Personally I don't know that anything will happen other than the sun will rise and set just like usual. But the key there is that I don't know, none of us do. I'll take what happens as it happens. I live in a place where I am typically prepared for many things (Colorado Mountains) and beyond that I will just take it one day at a time. Same way I live my life now actually! I refuse to live my life in fear of something that 'might' happen.
I have to say...odds of big change not only on this planet but other bodies in the solar system are pretty dang good. Its inevitable.
No one will cede because they are ignorant. But for sure, skeptics and scoffers are definitely more ignorant by nature. I've seen many a predictor admit they were wrong, but never have I seen a skeptic, not ONCE admit they were wrong about a topic. They simply make up excuses to work away from a point or blame a reaction on the most random of universal eccentricities - "coincidence". It is quite funny.
The thing about 2012 is not many people are PREDICTING anything to happen.
Even when the number of "out of the ordinary" events becomes more and more astounding as we have reached closer to this point and as we move further along, they continue to make excuse after excuse after excuse... after excuse... after excuse...
No matter how much evidence you provide and no matter how many inconsistencies to their reality you paint directly in front of their faces, they will do absolutely EVERYTHING in their power to maintain the placid illusion in front of their faces that everything is business as usual and nothing can go wrong.
People say the "predictors" who are wrong should apologize? Should you apologize for liking your favorite food when I don't?
On the contrary, it is the skeptics and scoffers, the ones who come in to topics and throw around insults and slurs against people making predictions and announcing their beliefs - whether they are TRUE OR NOT, that should be making the apologies.
Those of us who prepared will at least know that moment came for those people before they died.
I rarely see a predictor say they were wrong. They simple become quiet till the next ridiculous claim is posted. On the other hand I know skeptics admit mistakes. There are plenty of places I have admitted mistakes. Keep an eye out and look for skeptics admitting mistakes.
Let's make a short list...
Skip the excuses and provide us with your dozen events.
Lay out some of these events. Substantiate these claims.
The apology request here is out of context. There are specific reasons for such a request and are not simply because someone made a prediction.
Not true at all. Information is met with slurs such as disinfo agent.
In short, 95% of all skeptics are walls. They have their limitations of belief that no matter how much something does not fit into their fine little web of logic, no matter how much they can't admit even the fraction of some possibility of something being true - they will stop at nothing to make sure they remain on the winning end.
In fact, I think that many people are just open to the idea, the sheer possibility, however small it may be, that one of those things may in fact happen while the skeptics say there is 0% possibility.
Not the purpose of this topic and I'm not going to derail. Anyone who looks can see. But to appease you - record flood, record tornadoes, odd earthquake activity, increased volcanic activity, abnormal weather activity, abnormal animal behavior and migration, increased solar activity, increase in the past couple of years in axis shifting quakes, and various other things. I could be more specific, but as I said - not this topic.
I can't fathom why anyone who makes a failed prediction should have to apologize, with exception to someone along the lines of making a prediction to make a profit.
I hardly think the term "disinfo agent" is anywhere near a slur
