How does it seem like that?
The people who believe in it are mad because their beliefs are based on nonsense. In fact, the people who do not believe in this might not even
"believe" in other things either. Only accept facts rather than "believe" in random theories.
2012 isn't even the most ridiculous topic on ATS.
It's hard to tell which topic is more ridiculous than the other here.
Or are the skeptics simply mad that so many people are talking about it. Some of these comments seem more like self reassurance.
If we try to use our logic here... Even IF there were more ridiculous theories on this site, it still doesn't make this one not ridiculous. How your
logic makes that "self reassurance" is puzzling.
Personally I think the 2012ers are justified in there beliefs no matter how mundane they seem.
Just like religion, people are allowed to believe in whatever nonsense they wish.
To me it seems these are the people who want and are willing to accept change.
I think the obsession in believing in things like this are to fill a void in a somewhat empty life. To make the world seem more dramatic than it
I mean lets face it the world is going to sh|t and the status quo is obviously not working. So what's wrong with wanting change?
Most people who are somewhat good-hearted want to change things that have gone bad. Believing in a nonsense theory because of that is still nonsense.
The time might be better used to focus on the real world rather than fantasies.
This year has shaped who I am more than any other in my life.
Does that mean that my comment above of filling a void and making life more meaningful was quite accurate?
I think the hard core skeptics fear change because they feel they have so much invested in there life that they don't want anything to change for
better or worse.
Not being bothered about nonsense is not being a hard-core skeptic. It's being wise.
It has nothing to do with one's own life.
To me that's sad.
Listen to yourself. You're just making things up as you go, and then shaking our head to the sadness?
You are giving a defense-speech about your own false beliefs and trying to deflect it onto people that have nothing to do with this 2012 nonsense.
How do you advance from that point in life? I'm glad I chose believe in something strange. Life seems so much more fun. I feel like I got that
childlike sense of wonder back.
People who do not believe in this nonsense have no "point" to advance from?
This thing is in your head, not in those who didn't believe in this.
So now that we're going into a new age are you happy about the person you are and where your life is heading? If not then I think you've missed the
point of 2012
This is defiantly a rant
Ah.. so your 2012 still lives.
