What's going to happen to the paranormal/new age community of the date doesn't materialize later today? Is it going to create a huge upwelling of cynicism and people no longer believing in the supernatural in general?

They will just latch on to something else, or claim that something did happen but "we just cant see it" because we are not attuned to the right frequency.

Hopefully skepticism gets a big boost because of this.

Why does everyone have to have immediate results when something happens. It takes time for these things to manifest. When you take medicine it usually takes a day or so before it works. When you fix a problem killing fish in a lake, it takes a while for the fish population to rebuild. Have patients, the change will happen. Not sure which way the change will go, I'm really hoping it goes the way of truth.

What's already happening: rationalizations for the anticlimax; intelligent rebuttal; and mods appeasing those making the rationalizations by clamping down on the intelligent rebuttal. The paranormal community will continue much as it has because those in positions of authority don't dare expose their constituency, the nonsense talkers, to the uncomfortable consequences of their nonsense.

No physical earth calamity, no rapture, no enlightenment or acheivement of total consciousness, they'll just make up another date. Plus, what's the History Channel going to show now. They're whole programming lineup consisted of Mayan Apocalypse shows.

We will hear things like: a new spiritual era has begun, a more enlightened era has begun, the end has begun, etc., etc., etc....someone will latch onto an idea that will sell more books.

From this point on:

Everyone who starts a new 2012 thread must pay $10 (or equivalent) to a charity.

Everyone who replies to a 2012 thread must give $1 (or equivalent) to a charity.

I am going to drop a loonie into a collection box while you all tell me what an idiot I am.

First: there's nothing paranormal or supernatural about the 2012 phenomenon. That's just dumb. What happens now? Any time ANYONE makes a Doomsday prediction it will be IMMEDIATELY discredited. This includes predictions about TPTB or NWO creating a SHTF scenario...seriously guys lighten up, the world is not going to end in any of our lifetimes and that's a definite.

Or if you believe some people on ATS, there's about 6 comets heading for Earth right now. And don't forget Nibiru (which is going to smash right into this planet no matter how bloody invisible it is!)

I don't believe in the supernatural at all, but I still like to come on sites like this to argue with the crazies.
