The 22nd ey ? Something tells me we are going to "stop it". Yep, there will be no mass exterminations on the 22nd through December. It's not going to happen.
So, be of good cheer.

i believe our consciousness will change and we will all realise we are the same

Well, considering what happened last decade, I am not as skeptical. Last decade was proof that big events can and are happening, for example hurricane Katrina, the Indonesian Tsunami, and even into this decade - Haiti and Chile earthquakes, and finally, the Japanese earthquake, tsunami and nuclear event that still hasn't played itself out yet.
I don't see this pattern stopping anytime soon. I imagine we will probably start hitting a new magnitude of event, something like a massive outbreak or release of nuclear radiation from Fukishima. If there was a theme to the major events happening, it would seem to be depopulation on the one hand, and the decay of the traditional power structure on the other. This is just coming from what we have already seen and know from recent history.
So it makes sense that people feel like the future will come with more depopulation and decay of the traditional power structure, since that is already happening. After all, an object in motion stays in motion - and we are already in motion.
One thing I disagree with, though, is this idea that we are going to continue to see boring old earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes over and over again. That has kind of played itself out. I think the theme is changing.edit on 10-6-2012 by darkbake because: (no reason given)
In June 1979, an unknown person or persons under the pseudonym R. C. Christian hired Elberton Granite Finishing Company to build the structure
A message consisting of a set of ten guidelines or principles is engraved on the Georgia Guidestones in eight different languages, one language on each face of the four large upright stones. Moving clockwise around the structure from due north, these languages are: English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian.
1.Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2.Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
3.Unite humanity with a living new language.
4.Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
5.Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6.Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7.Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8.Balance personal rights with social duties.
9.Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
10.Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.
A few feet to the west of the monument, an additional granite ledger has been set level with the ground. This tablet identifies the structure and the languages used on it, lists various facts about the size, weight, and astronomical features of the stones, the date it was installed, and the sponsors of the project. It also speaks of a time capsule buried under the tablet, but the fields on the stone reserved for filling in the dates on which the capsule was buried and is to be opened are missing, so it is not clear whether the time capsule was ever put in place. Each side of the tablet is perpendicular to one of the cardinal directions, and is inscribed so that the northern edge is the top of the inscription.
The complete text of the explanatory tablet is detailed below. The accompanying image shows the overall layout. The tablet is somewhat inconsistent with respect to punctuation, and also misspells "pseudonym". The original spelling, punctuation, and line breaks in the text have been preserved in the transcription which follows.
At the center of each tablet edge is a small circle, each containing a letter representing the appropriate compass direction (N, S, E, W).
At the top center of the tablet is written:
The Georgia Guidestones
Center cluster erected March 22, 1980
Immediately below this is the outline of a square, inside which is written:
Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason
Around the edges of the square are written the names of four ancient languages, one per edge. Starting from the top and proceeding clockwise, they are:Babylonian (in cuneiform script), Classical Greek, Sanskrit and Ancient Egyptian (in hieroglyphics).
On the left side of the tablet is the following column of text:
1. channel through stone
indicates celestial pole.
2. horizontal slot indicates
annual travel of sun.
3. sunbeam through capstone
marks noontime throughout
Author: R.C. Christian
(a pseudonyn) [sic]
Sponsors: A small group
of Americans who seek
the Age of Reason
Placed six feet below this spot
To Be Opened on
The words appear as shown under the time capsule heading; no dates are engraved
