They said the world would end, we would all die, that is what the prediction was, an apocalyptic event.
There are plenty of people's post histories, books, theories, etc. that demonstrate otherwise (RE: change over time ala winter/summer cycles versus
Just because you never noticed them through what should have been easily dismissed noise, doesn't mean there haven't been voices trying to communicate
something different (for thousands of years to be honest).
Do you understand what "apocalyptic" meant when it was originally being used? Look around you... can you not see the accelerating awareness of what is
and has been going on around us?
Do you not accept that an "event" as described historically/culturally can be and usually is multiple years in duration? The "Boston Tea Party" wasn't
a single moment but in truth an ebb and flow that has an easily identifiable "marker" point... but the entire "event" was days, weeks, or even months
in duration depending on how you choose to define it. World War 2 is spoken of as an "event" depending on context, for example.
The Winter Solstice is a significant "event" because it is literally the moment the direction of the seasonal pattern changes. The day before and
after aren't much different from each other, yet everything is fundamentally different going forward (for a while at least until it ebbs back).
Sine waves. Peaks. Troughs. Etc.
Yes there were people predicting some hard to swallow stuff. Why did/do you give them any attention? Either their attempts are interesting to you, or
not. It's your responsibility. Truth is the doom and gloom crowd got all the attention it did because people wanted to give it to them... and wrote
threads about them.
