Cool post! I agree. I too don't think anything apocalyptic will happen either.. however, I do think something will occur in some small city, some
small country that will cause a ripple effect - and later cause monumental changes! we as humans are just so naive and ignorant. we live in a world
with dwindling resources yet infinite growth of society. you can not sustain infinite growth of society when we have only a finite amount of
resources!! Over population, over fishing, pollution, etc.. we have done all this in just 100 years!!!
every civilization has collapsed in the past. tho this time, we are alot more all connected thru global commerce and communications. in the past 100
years we have progressed at a rate never before seen and I don't think people understand the ramifications of this - its going to fast. we are
growing to fast to mature as a society at the same rate. individuals can change easily but as a society we are slow to change and often take on a
"mob" mentality.. due to this, progress is slow in the realm of socio-political issues..
we actually have people battling over our environment denying that Global Warming exists.. this is insane! even if man only has a 1% chance of
changing our climate - we must change. its not worth the risk b/c we've never been in this situation before. if we can change our environment thru
pollution or mega construction projects, if we can put a hole in the ozone layer in just 30 years the size of Europe using Hairspray - we can just as
easily change the climate!! but the piont that needs to be made is we need to mature and better understand our surroundings.. the rate of
technology actually needs to slow down. and of course, so does population growth..
many people don't realize that an additional 100,000,000 people are born every year!!! so in just another 7 to 9 years our population will reach 8
billion. all thru out human history we've relatively stayed around 1.5 billion to 2 billion since the past approx. 2,000 years.. and all of a sudden
we have nearly quadruppled that figure in just 100 years - what do you think is going to happen when the **** hits the fan??? since so many people
are on this planet - we can see wars unlike anything before.. we can see huge declines in population just b/c the sheer population of people.. more
people, more deaths - however, it doesn't mean we still can't exist but b/c of politics and corporations, billions of people still live in hunger when
they can all be fed with food and then some!
So, I can see something happening on December 21st on a small scale.. (tho I been having these repetitive dreams of an Alien invasion!! the dreams
sure are scary but its probably b/c I watch to much TV, LoL!!) and like i said earlier, it can just be a ripple effect leading to greater change in
the not too distant future.. it remains to be seen.. one thing is for certain - this date of Dec. 21st is unlike any other "doomsday" date in the
