Well, it's always nice to know where folks stand on an issue. I have to say, you made your position EXTREMELY clear and with a near viciousness. I'd
note we're on ATS.....not Science.com. Calling everyone who considers 2012 something more than just another number on the Calendar idiots is one heck
of a statement, given that.
Everyone?? C'mon now. You know that's not true.
Aside from online idiots, I don't know a single person that actually believes any of that Doomsday crap. Heck, many people don't even know that
there actually are some idiots out there who honestly do believe it.
Well, I'm not sure what circles you travel in. A few years ago, I'd have been hard pressed to find peopole outside ATS style web sites that WOULD
know 2012 details for what people talk about. Now? Well... 3 major Hollywood movies so far and I'm sure they'll squeak another out somewhere. Maybe
a 'what might have been'? With the hype...it wouldn't surprise me. It's made the CULTURAL awareness of this almost subconscious in it's depth and
breadth of people aware of it at SOME level. The movies, news stories, books and general chatter about it across society means the awareness is far
With regards to any sort of Astronomical/Universal type of event, not a dam thing is going to happen.
IF any significantly large event were to actually take place, it will be entirely Idiot-Based. 100% Idiotic Acts carried out by morons.
Honestly, I wouldn't mind to see a *snip*load of idiots taking out themselves(&/or each other). Sadly though, my wishes are never granted.
Ouch... Thats the 2nd direct insult to everyone on this web site who may think more than an average year with nothing happening. I wonder.., CAN we
chat without name calling directly at one another? It'd be a nice thing, IMO.
On-Point though, rather than simply note that I agree with much of what you're saying..I'll point to my own words on this at the start of the 2012
year. (Gloom, Doom and a Duty to others
I'll disagree about not minding seeing my fellow citizens kill themselves and others. Thats precisely what I hope NOT to see...despite the hysteria
over 2012 in some circles, as the OP is 100% about in this case.

Ridiculous misinterpretations and inaccurate translations made by undereducated men of today, is not even close to being the same thing as a
Failed Mayan Prediction.
Tell me, is there anyone but yourself in this topic area which ISN'T an idiot, under-educated or flat out simple minded in your opinion? It seems you
have quite a LOW opinion of Conspiracy Theorists in general and absolutely NO respect for anyone speaking of 2012 events outside the strictly
It makes me wonder....why reply to threads you just consider naive and ignorant? In terms of this topic and in this particular thread though......
The OPs whole point seems to be....there are extremes of opinion and belief out in the world, as we sit here and speak of it. Those extremes are like
the cult that this whole thread is about. In that, it is ANYTHING BUT imaginary on any level and I'm sure there are more of them........of course,
I'm sure if we just tell all them they are idiots, they'll see the light and come around to dropping all those extreme thoughts.
What .....many of us FEEL as a sense of 'wrong' and 'off' during this period of time is another thing. That feeling so many are describing ...is
what? Imaginary? Fantasy? As one who feels it too, I absolutely assure you it is NOT imaginary and it's damn sure not welcome or wanted. The tangible
physical feeling others here post about experiencing as well is just one aspect beyond the 'norm'....
.......and cults like this one obviously carry all that about 20 steps beyond healthy. On THAT point, I'd hope we all agree.
