Where are the dozens if not hundreds of ATS posters who were so absolutely certain all this time that the end-times are upon? Where are they now?

... My main point is this: The closer we approach the "event date" of 2012, the fewer people are speaking of it.

Yes, indeed.
This is precisely what I nicknamed the "day has arrived" syndrome on a thread of my own.
That is to say, I had noticed on previous "predicted" days that the believers had vanished from the board once the day had dawned, not even waiting for the end of the day to be certain.
I commented that in the case of "2012" the phenomenon seemd to have begun early.
So you've noticed it too, which proves my point about the existence of the pattern.

If instead of wasting precious time and energy dwelling on speculative doomsday fantasies, we all spent a little more time helping with a specific, concrete cause that would improve things on this planet - such as donating some $$$ to your favorite charity, volunteering with a local non-profit or the Red Cross to help unfortunate people in your community, biking to work instead of driving and burning gas, insulating your windows and doors to avoid wasting so much energy on heat/AC, etc, it would probably help to fend off the "end of the world" quite a bit.

Not that I've always been the best about doing this myself... But instead of worrying and speculating so much about things that are outside of our control, IMHO we should be taking actions to help with things where we can actually make a difference.

Thanks for your post OP - very well said.

Ok, that's my rant for the evening

I can proudly state that I've done all of those things many times. Used to bike a 30 - 40 mile roundtrip on my 10 speed at dawn a couple days a week to go to school. I think if everyone did such things we'd all get along much better, too. And maybe we'd have the proper social nets to prevent cult-like belief. I think it's a long time before that happens though - I kid you not when I say one morning a family of obese folks were blatantly laughing at me going uphill on my bike as they went by in an SUV. I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone.

Instead of our usual gifts, this holiday season my wife and I are giving family and friends cards showing that we donated to different charities in their name. We thought this was much better than giving material gifts to people who already had pretty much everything they need.

It will be interesting to see how well received they are - but I have no regrets!

I myself should be biking to work every day - I have no excuses, I've just been lazy

I just hope that for those of us ahead of South America in the timezone, we wait patiently for 23:59:59 21st December 2012 in local Mayan time... wherever the darned thing originated.

THEN all the naysayers of doom porn can gloat to their hearts content!!

Where are the dozens if not hundreds of ATS posters who were so absolutely certain all this time that the end-times are upon? Where are they now?

Where is the reflection of Nibiru in the night sky?
Where are the massive sink-holes in the ground and strange trumpet noises heralding the four horsemen?
Where are the images of the Earth's magnetosphere as it falls apart and reverses itself?
Where are the benevolent space-brothers hovering above us in flying cities with their metaphysical teachings?
Where are the greys and reptillians coming to enslave us for meat and DNA?
Where are the Mayan Elders and their 13 Crystal Skulls?
Where is the massive cloud of radiation coming to cause us all to shrivel up and die?
Where are the masses of NWO troops knocking down our doors to take our guns and force us to swear fealty?
Where are the FEMA camp operators preparing for train-fulls of civillians?
Where are the 4th dimensional beings who were supposed to help us evolve to the next plane?
Where are the indications that the sun is going to supernova early?
Where are the atrocities of a third world war?
Where is the black hole that the LHC was creating?
Where are the phsychic powers I was supposed to unlock?
Where are the world-wide floods or tidal waves?
Where are the mountains of supposed antichrists?
Where are the dead walking the earth?
Where are the seas that have suddenly turned red?
Where is the apocolypse?

Shame on you, guys. At least when organized religions get their doomsday predicitions wrong they stick by the prediction and move the date.

3 days to go, but without fire and brimstone falling from the sky I'm starting to lose faith. (pun)

But I digress... My main point is this: The closer we approach the "event date" of 2012, the fewer people are speaking of it. My take on it is that nobody wants to be the last guy speaking right before nothing happens. Why? Because even though many people are wrong, only so many will be teased enough to feel humiliated. Arguements?

I think you left out a few other scenarios but i must say this is an excellent list which seems to encompass a huge amount of threads from numerous forums occurring all throughout the history of ATS!

Perthaps if we add enough possibilities then surely one may be interpreted as actually happening.

People die everyday and for them the world has ended and the same will happen on 12/21/12 as it happens every single day. Death is part of life and is a certainty the moment we are conceived and we should be ready for it at any time. The only reason people fear death is because of our addiction to everything material which is the root of most problems faced by humanity. Stop worrying about a particular date and live every moment as it happens. Knowing whether the world will end or not is meaningless.

Please, add your own scenarios! Let's make a game of it. In fact, I'm going to add that to the OP right now.



ETA: Darn, missed the time cut-off.

That's a wonderful idea. I think I'll do that next year! Plus I'll feel a whole lot awkward telling people that then giving them a gift they half-like. Haha.

The name of your thread gave me an idea to create a parody of that old fashioned poem.
So here's my gift to you all. It's sort of a rough draft; I wanted to add more doomsday memes, but I kinda like it.



'Twas the Night before Doomsday (by Mara Grace)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Twas the night before Solstice, the new agers dowse
Precession of equinox through a new astrological house.
Threads about doomsday were created with care,
In hopes that Hercolubus soon would be there.

Children of Annunaki await their planet in red,
While visions of apocalypse danced in their heads.
Grabbed my compass and telescope and celestial maps,
Boggling my mind, I prepared for extreme solar zaps.

When out from CERN there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was dark matter.
Looking out the window I saw a huge flash,
It tore open the skies and rained down cosmic ash.

The moon was just blasted by probes Ebb and Flow,
As I thought to myself just how apropos.
When, just as my brain cranked in to high gear,
I saw a gigantic asteroid appear and coming near!

Well I'm a survivor, so what was this shtick?
I knew in a moment the meteor must be quite thick.
Faster than fallen angels fleeing from shame,
We whistled and shouted as we saw shooting flames!

"Now Mercury! now, Venus! now, Earth is missing!
A Comet! A planetoid! Some abomination of fission!
To the top of the mountains! to the caves we crawl!
Now run away! Run away! Run away all!"

As hot cinders that before the super-volcano fly,
When a Carrington event happens, Earth is to fry.
Higher than the house-top the tidal wave grew,
With the air full of noise, and Nibiru too!

Without an inkling, I thought it was a spoof,
I suddenly worried all this might end in a poof!
As I threw up my arms, my head spinning around,
Down came an alien, beamed to the ground.

He appeared in a blur, from his head to his foot,
A holographic projection telling me to stay put.
A beam from his ray-gun I mistook as attack,
But at the last moment he said he'd cut me some slack.

His eyes--how they glowed! how hypnotic, how scary!
Definitely not Bigfoot, not even hairy!
He looked like a stick figure made out of dough,
I looked around to try and find his UFO.

Straight up above me as I was beneath,
A light encircled his head like a wreath.
He told me why he thought the Earth was so smelly,
Our reliance on crude oil to make petroleum jelly!

But that was only a small part, in and of itself,
I cried as I asked the fate of the continental shelf!
Glaring almond-shaped eyes, he spoke of great dread,
Had me quite worried we'd all shortly drop dead.

He spoke not a word, nodded his head with a smirk,
Said I should have recycled more, and called me a jerk!
The least of my worries was my home being foreclosed,
Radioactive waste takes far too long to decompose!

He rose to his ship, to his team gave a whistle,
Pushed a button to disarm all our military missiles.
But I heard him exclaim, that it is our own inner light,
Will redeem us in the end, then he flew out of sight!

lol

maybe they're hiding from the witch-hunters

have you noticed how the "prophets" of "nothing will happen"

are now backpedaling
inventing scenarios [in other words PREDICTING that something will happen ]

pre-emptively labeling anything that may happen as pranks, crazies acting out,and

HYSTERIA: the old standby used by TPTB, to describe anything they dont understand or control but threatens their authority, and allows them by slapping the crazy label to act against it.

pre-emptivly casting the blame on anything that may happen on 2012'ers/new-agers?

i have.


PS

i will be performing a Ritual Immanentization of the Eschaton on the Day of 4-Motion

OP im not sure where those things are...but i can show you where you can get brainwashed via religious institutes, i can show you where to get a bank loan so the banks can further own you, i can also show you where you can buy guns for you to love your neighbors with..

Well..."Apocalypses" literally means "the unveiling"...it doesn't mean "Armageddon"...big difference.

There will be no doom and I doubt any "unveiling" will take place...though it's possible. An "apocalypse" could be a new scientific, medical or technological discovery...it could be A.I. It could be any information coming out that we didn't have before...

I will be working and do what I do every other day on Friday...though I may have my coffee outside to watch the sun rise...supposed to be in the upper 30's here so won't be too cold. The winter Solstice arrives here at 6:12 am and sunrise is around 7:29 or so...

What he's trying to say is that NASA have already put out a video about "why the world didnt end yesterday".
The title implies that it is meant to be watched after friday, but already released as an education device...





I think you are misunderstanding why they released it early, clearly nobody will be here to see it Saturday.
