Also no offense but in reference to the rich being 'happy' who are you to say that the rich AREN'T the happiest people on the planet? Do you know a lot of millionaires and billionaires personally? Do ride on their football field sized yacht while sipping the worlds most expensive wine? Do you have a 'binder' full of women at your disposal? Are you god? Okay think that's enough.

My own Doomsday date from my source is 2182 and the date if you study the effects of the present enviromental distruction, fossil fuels yada yada seems very accurate... Science backs this date or there abouts.
That isn't the end of being by a long chalk....

The reply is very much appreciated.
I wont be around in 2182. I'll have to take your word on that this time around

The Black Plaque would have had to feel like the Apocalypse to those living (esp in Europe) at the time.....1/3 of Europe perished and the black plaque lends itself to the "black horseman" imagery.

And yet, it waas a blessing in disguise. First, those left grew rich(er) because of inheriting the land and possessions of the dead. Immediately after the Black Plague was a time of relative prosperity. Second, the clothes of the dead were a primary ingredient of paper, and since there was so much material, paper was cheaper. The printing press had just been invented, so the combination of the press and cheap paper fueled the Renaissance and change dthe world.

Kind of like the Rapture. If it happens, I get a new car!

Your post caught my eye because I read somewhere that apocalyptic events, mass extinction events cause us to evolve.

The reason? Life on the veldt was tough, and prehistoric humans’ genes were constantly subjected to selective pressure in an environment where the species’ survival depended on it. For humans, that meant getting smarter. ”The development of our intellectual abilities and the optimization of thousands of intelligence genes probably occurred in relatively non-verbal, dispersed groups of peoples before our ancestors emerged from Africa,” Crabtree said in a news release.

I was doing some research on this drought, not good.

When asked if her union had received any response from federal officials on the matter, Muench said “not yet.”

Crazy is as crazy does, man. Speaking of "crazy", and referring back to the photo of Marshall Applewhite, can't you just feel the crazy oozing out of your computer screen from that photo?


The "Doomsday" look, is just another part of the crowd of Apocalyptic Crazies.......

A long list of failures indeed.See The Great Disappointment of 1844.The only authentic,accurate prophets receive their visions from God and are NEVER wrong.
And yes SLAYER I too hope that people aren't fooled into doing something stupid like the heavens gate tragedy.

Human are fatalists IMO due to the fact that we view everything as finite. If there was a beginning, there must be an end and since we are egocentric to begin with, naturally, that end MUST occur during our lifetime.

A spirit and POV of bright optimism is the only sane and rational response to the world as we find it today, in the firm of a steadfast hope that the future need not equal the past and that with mutual committment we can somehow bridge the gap between what was, and what is, to what ought to be. Any reasonable person will see that the time has come to set their hand to the plow without looking back.

The fundamental problem we're facing is simple human stupidity and ignorance, but I'm optimistic that many people will face up to their shortcomings and misconceptions and choose an infinitely better path to a better future based on sound principals and reasoning at all levels, from individual to global.

And in regards to 2012, if anything we may very well be on the cusp of the beginning of a golden age, something that the people of the world ought to be celebrating, not dreading. Apocalypse after all actually means Revelation. It's a time for the lifting of the veil which separates the ignorant from the center and source of infinite intelligence and wisdom who is God.

I feel sorry for the materialist monist atheists who will say when the day comes and goes, see I told you so, when all the while their opportunity to become a freely and fully self expressed, self realized human being, will have passed them by while the nexus of transformation continues on without them to "leave the dead to bury their dead". Oh the irony.

Keep your lamps well trimmed for the knock at the door (this is a spiritual allegory), and God help you if you are unprepared when the voice of the Bridegroom himself can be heard approaching. For some it's a time of joy and celebration, while for others a time of great loss where the only response will be a groan, or even "weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth" because they will know at that point that it's too late, and that the opportunity came and went right under their very nose without realization or recognition (re cognition). Some will be very happy, while others when looking back, filled with nothing but utter sorrow, and dread.

Merry Christmas one and all and good will to mankind.

16 “But to what shall I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their playmates,

17 “‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance;
we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn.’

Mathew 11: 16-17

I guess some things never change..

people are curious and they want to witness the big events. but I only know of only one apocalypse in the history. the only one apocalypse with it's consequences. an apocalypse which no one knows when it occurs. so there would be no failure.
that is nothing but the return of Jesus.

Now I see what your getting at.

Appreciation, instead of whining like a bunch of spoiled brats.

I like the song the "Cat's and the Cradle" song it sums up the majority of the western civilization.

Never said it did.

I do have to ask though. Are people grateful for the things they do have? Roofs over their heads, Clothes on their backs, Food in their stomachs? People in their lives who care about them?

Happiness is subjective, millionaires and billionaires have to deal with the same emotional issues that everyone else does, but they just have more money.

Not a football sized, but I have been on some rather large ones. Didn't ask how much they spent for the wine either.

Good post. S'n'F.

I don't think the world will end.

I don't think even us polluting the planet will cause it to 'end'. Probably induce another Ice Age but not 'end'.

I do hope Aliens come back, that would be cool, and could spell the 'end' of life as we know it but it won't be the 'end'.

Some part of the human species will always survive. Probably those who chose to live as close, and in harmony, with nature as possible. In all honesty they're the only ones truly worthy of it.

I think people freak out like this because they think there going to die.
We go our entire lives knowing we are going to die, but we simply do not know when.
In cases like this, they are able to put a date to it. I believe this gives them a sense of control.
Me? I have never been scared of dieing.

Also I have seen a few post on this thread about the "religious" freaking out. I guess that depends on which religion. As a Protestant I can tell you this is not the case.
I know the end is coming but I do not know when. I live my life and I watch. Whenever it comes, in my life time or not, I am ready.

Even so Lord, come.

So, mods. How exactly were my posts off topic? I posted almost every single doomsday prediction that was ever predicted. Seems to me like that had everything to do with the thread's subject
And why didn't you wipe the first post?

Never before in the history of this planet has mankind been more vulnerable,
Latest official current world population estimate, for mid-year 2011, is estimated at 7,021,836,029.

The majority are dependent, if there were to be a mass extinction event, even peppers wont make it.

Never before in the history of this planet have the nations been so unstable.

Never before has this planet been so polluted.
Oceans Are Dying, the rivers are polluted.
Mass extinction of species,
Nuclear waste,
Chemical weapons and their disposal

The stage is set for the perfect storm.

But I know how the story ends.

IDK This whole 12-21-2012 has the mark of the Government imho. All a way to control the sheeps though fear.... appears this started so long ago!! And the loss of life that will undoubtedly happen because they can not handle the fear to see what happens makes me sad! I also imagine in the past months and especially days till the 21st a whole lot of folks will do other foolish things thinking the end days are here - this again make me sad..

The last two times I cried was with the passing of my mother and while watching the movie The Notebook
Sorry to hear about your Mom! Lost my dad a few years back, closest person to me - haven't cried yet directly over that - unless you give me the Notebook - makes me weep like a baby every single time = brings out every emotion... don't know why I love that movie, which makes 12-21-2012 look like a dream - gonna go sit on the couch now cause the thought of that movie made me sad!!!

Just how horrible has their existence been?

Compared to what?
Are you implying that no greater challenges other than indoor pluming have persuaded mankind to dream of a peaceful beginning or that if you have indoor pluming then you have no problems that could exist other than what has previously been addressed with a solution?

i completely understand what your saying here, but i also understand exactly where Slayer is coming from. If you live in the western world your problems really are not that big compared to say someone living in a 3rd world country without acccess to safe food and water. Here in Australia we get well looked after, free money, subsidised amenities, decent health care, excellent sewerage and water infrastructure. Our physical needs are met very well. At the same time, people are essentially forced into a system that works against them and you are so indoctrinated by the time you realize it there seems like no way out. You have to work, so you can pay your bills for your power/water/food, you hate your job, you have barely anything or nothing left over after you pay your expenses, if you can meet them that is. Its a miserable existance for many people and far from a satisfying way to live ones life. So as i said there is value in both statements, i guess we are just lucky that in the western world we can be thankfull we have enough food and water, (and plumbing) to not have to worry about that so we can be miserable with our existance instead of worrying about looking or food and water.
