Actually, it's not the literal end, but it is an enormous part of a building confluence that will result in the end of something monumental.
That monumental something is the 2,000+ year Piscean Age, and that age - with its mysticism and secret knowledge and spiritual initiates, who know all
the chants and the rituals and the secret handshakes - has to end to allow the Age of Aquarius - with its focus on rationalism, logic, technology, and
objective reality - to begin to emerge as a more visceral aspect of what it means to be human on Planet Earth.
And the Dec 21, 2012 date serves to bring that age to an end by completely failing to deliver on the promises of many fundamental philosophical and
theological pillars of the Age of Pisces. It will be that failure, as the 22nd of December dawns across the entire planet (heralding nothing more
than 3 more shopping days until Christmas)
that will finally initiate the serious debate whether we, as a species of otherwise rational beings,
have been stooping and fetching on behalf of who-knows-what (literally in most cases)
for centuries, as one finely crafted presentation after
another orders us to believe what cannot (and should not)
be proven, while demanding that we reject every other presentation as diabolical
heresy whether it can be proven or not; with the rationale that it will be faith alone that will ensure our literal survival, unless that faith
embraces the tenets of any competing presentation.
When December 21st fails to deliver on
- physical transformation of the human corporeal body
- spiritual transformation
- geological cataclysm
- global societal collapse
- Jesus on a cloud (with splendor and glory)
- The AntiChrist
- WWIII (featuring the AntiChrist or authorized representative)
- any one of the following - earthquake, flood, blood sea, boiling rivers and oceans, black-hole sun, locusts, frogs upon the land of (fill in
your location here), Zombie apocalypse, death star materialization, Nibiru coming around for the rent check, satellite TV disruption
...the demand for answers will be felt, even if they aren't widely expressed. And the answers are not going to be available, if those answers will be
expected to somehow explain how this monumental calendar event was nothing more than yet another Tennessee tent preacher Rapture debacle, while having
all that unimpeachable evidence - that was carefully and prayerfully handed down from those masters from whom we learned how to worship, how much to
worship, and who it was that we'd best target with our worship - to back up the assertions that this 2012 event was the real deal.
So, in essence, Dec 21, 2012 will probably come through after all, even if it does so in a way that the religionists and the spiritualists and the
transcendentalists won't be celebrating. It's sure to be a red letter day on the calendar, and that much I think we can all agree on.
