As the date the to the end of the Mayan codex approaches, 12/21/2012, I sit here reading some interesting things about the end of the world here at
ATS. I can't believe that some think that some earth shattering event that will lead to the extinction of mankind is anywhere near the realm of even
possible in relation to this date. We have 15 days left to this (for some, dreaded) date, as it seems some here seem fearful of it. What could
possibly happen in the next few weeks that could possibly exterminate us as a species? Not many. as the chances of this are about the same as winning
the powerball lottery.
There is no meteor or asteroid anywhere to be found first off, that could lead to destruction on a global scale anywhere near this date. In fact,
there has only ever been mentioned one with any amount of probability striking earth and annihilating us - which was announced by Nasa briefly in
2004. They dubbed this meteor "Apophis" and it's time of arrival anywhere near earth would not be seen due to it's distance to earth at that time, was
speculated in the years between 2029 and 2036. Information on Apophis is below.
Some out there believe it will usher in the arrival of the "rogue planet" Nibiru. There is simply no evidence out there to support this theory. Many
have claimed out there on alternative outlets such as Youtube for example, that Nibiru has been visible in the past few short years. There is simply
no corroborating evidence of this "planet" coming anywhere near earth in this time, or even being there at all. This is something to me that, although
an interesting topic of discussion, holds no tangible weight.
Some believe this will be some sort of "alien arrival" date. I see no reason to believe such a thing; seeing as we have not as a society even
concretely (no emperical evidence) that these beings even exist (in the public eye). I myself, could not begin to even believe this to be a
possibility without such evidence.
There are even some out there that believe that a pole shift could cause the the ice caps to melt, raising the levels of our ocean waters, causing
mass flooding worldwide; as well as generating other disasters such as tornadoes and hurricanes, not to mention earthquakes; as the geomagnetic poles
shift beyond any form of control. If this is to happen, it would have to be very soon (as in record breaking speed) to come anywhere near correlating
with this date.
The only thing that I can fathom that could be so disastrous that it would possibly lead to an extinction level event would be a nuclear war of some
kind on a mass scale. This has no headwind in the news whatsoever; no news of the possible start of such a cataclysmic event to be read about, or
heard anywhere. The chances (although possible, but improbable) of this are very, very low indeed.
There are so many different theories as to what possible doom could await us as a global entity on that date that it's ridiculous. I only really
wanted to touch on a few possibilities (or non-possibilities even) that seem popular with people all over the web. The descendants of the Mayan
culture that created this codex do not even believe this date to have any world ending significance. The site below speaks of their 17 calendars, as
to what will happen at the end of the last one:
What will this "transformation" be like when we reach the end of one of these 17 calendars?
It will be the start of a new era resulting from and signified by the solar meridian crossing the galactic equator, and the earth aligning itself
with the center of the galaxy. At sunrise on December 21, 2012 for the first time in 26,000 years the Sun rises to conjunct the intersection of the
Milky Way and the plane of the ecliptic. This cosmic cross is considered to be an embodiment of the Sacred Tree, The Tree of Life, a tree remembered
in all the world's spiritual traditions. Some observers say this alignment with the heart of the galaxy in 2012 will open a channel for cosmic energy
to flow through the earth, cleansing it and all that dwells upon it, raising all to a higher level of vibration.
Source info found here:
As this site details. it will be the start of a higher level of vibration as to the beliefs of their culture. An event that would be a cleansing
process to the people of the earth. If this will indeed happen, remains to be seen. It is definitely not a cataclysmic, extinction level event to them
as many fear it will be.
So what does the rest of ATS think? Are we in danger of being wiped out as a collective global consciousness? Or are we heading for a dawn of a new
and better age, where we become more spiritually inclined and/or centered? Perhaps nothing at all will happen on this date, all of us going about our
daily lives as usual. How will you spend your time leading up to this day? Being happy and fulfilled, or filled with dread and fear?
