As I mentioned earlier in this thread, not to mention in a number of other threads, 2012 theories can be dangerous. We already have one suicide
connected to them and we can certainly expect more as we get closer to December 21. Other than that they also breed apathy. 2012 is supposed to be
some cosmic reset button. As a result people feel like they don't have to do anything to better themselves or the world as a whole. Then when the
date comes and goes this apathy will continue. They will have put all their faith in this "event" and it didn't occur. This will then cause them to
lose hope and feel like there's nothing that can fix the world. All of this comes from lies told by people looking for easy money. That's why it's
important to argue against these baseless claims.
I know it might sound far fetched, but I really don't want to be reading in the headlines of mass suicides like I did as a teen when I read about
. Again, one might say that it won't happen, but then, how do you know?
Given enough fruitcakes out there that really believe in the doom and gloom, people have been known to kill themselves and forcibly kill their
children just before doing so. History shows us that.
I really don't want to be reading that. Especially when I get up on the morning of December 22nd of this year, have breakfast and go about my day
just like any other day.
Then there is the flip side of it: the "New Light" or "Awakening" people.
What's going to happen with them when they wake up the next day and everything is just as it's always been? How many of them are going to freak out,
or do foolish things when they realize they've thrown their whole lives into something that doesn't happen?
I could just shrug and say: "What do I care?"
But then if I can post something that some lurking young life might read and realize how silly the doom and gloom really is, and it keeps them from
doing the same thing as that teen girl, then it's worth it for me.
