WOW, quite a rant and all true in one way or the other, problem is it has nothing to do with my post.

The doom the OP is talking about and your perception of the doom we are experiancing are a little different I think but then again doom is doom, the OPs is done and over with and yours is a long nerve racking waiting pieriod for what I agree is the inevitable.

I have no problem being on the othere end of your rant IceHappy if it helps, you did it very to the point and with no ridicule that I could see.

Try and have a good day, one day (sadly) we will look back and dream of the good days but not in the way we are used to.

That notion of "something not as it seems" is always going to be where humans are, because of that one thing that has helped us evolve. Imagination.

Imagination and pareidolia are what help keep cavemen safe at night. Better to beat that bear with a club, and unintentionally kill dino the pet, than be eaten.


Indeed, the culling to change dynamic in why our genetics survived and accreted the 16 Human Accelerated Regions of our genome, selected by evolution, was precisely because of this skill to see beyond, determine the potential element of awesomeness (good and bad), and communicate it to the clan. Seeing what could be there, is not the same thing as pareidolia. It is what makes for sound business, and infrastructure planning for the clan.

One thing I learned through my years, the hard way, and the single greatest mistake which is even worse than pareidolia or conspiracy thought habits, in the end, is pretending that we hold a penultimate set of data and understanding. That is when the real damage is effective. When we think we are smarter than we really are, and we set about a methodology which targets and filters out that which we pretend does not exist.

A running joke I hear back consistently from techs in the field or labs is "Well we obtained the answer to ________, and all it did was create more questions." I have that posted on my office wall, along with "Don't assume anything."

I recently toured a Miocene lava dome in Africa, 8 miles across, convex and yet below elastic limit; to survey some geo studies my company has being conducted therein. Growing on it was endless strawgrass, hip high. The only thing that could grow there. The locals said that the "hyenas will not go there because the magnetics messes with them." It is 74% hematite and magnetite, along with other upper magma constituents. Just the same, I carried a Glock .45 (not that it would stop a lion or hyena pack that close) and we lit off firecrackers before every auger move for the next core sample. Expert testimony is never sufficient excuse for stupidity. This from experience, is our greater challenge.

The key resides in not panicking or seeking doomsday magic every time a set of unknowns is encountered. But to pretend that the unknowns are teensy little gaps in our authoritative knowledge, or that what resides inside them is insignificant or irrelevant is our Penultimate Set Fallacy, .. that human foible has proven through the entire industrial age to constitute the real insanity.

If one is to be skeptical, our first duty is to be skeptical of what we extrapolate into thinking we know. New things, and fanciful thinking will falsify themselves through added facts and will not harm us if we apply non-prejudiced discipline; but the things we confidently presume from 32 months of extra classwork, or while we comfortably sit in front of bookshelves, will die - with us.

So what are you going to change your name to after this doesn't happen? There won't be a "it's over" day or week. It will happen just like it's been happening: slowly but surely.

If there's a date to watch, it's when America decides to do something. I think that day is very, very close at hand.

Did anybody posting on here even bother to read the OP, he says it's the end of all the "doomsday" prediction dates that stem from the mayan calendar, not that its going to be the end of the world.

It always amazes me how so many people on a website like this don't take 30 freakin seconds to actually read the threads that they are posting on
edit on 27-3-2013 by Konduit because: (no reason given)


Oh I did read it. And I'm sure many others on here did too, because they, like me have posted:

No, it won't end it.

When 31 March shows up here in a few days, and many of us are celebrating Easter and munching on chocolate bunnies, and that's pretty much all that happens, there will be more dates, more predictions, and it will never stop.

If you look through the forums here on ATS, you'll see that the next big thing (so far) is this coming November with comet ISON. I'm sure that there will be someone (if not already), somewhere is mixing up numbers, and finding some reason that the Mayan calendar was wrong, yet again, and that the REAL date will be this November.

It's almost like an addiction and can look very obsessive. Some people will move on, from using the Mayan calendar anyways, and will focus on something else, be it a new calendar, a new ancient ruin found or people discovered, or they'll focus on prophets and people making predictions.

It's part of being human. For many, it's as natural to do this as it is to breath air.

Just an Odd question. Did any one flip the Myan Stone over to see if the dates continued on the other side?....Just asking.

I bet your Mayan elder Don Alejandro etc. etc. qualifies as a Mayan elder in these ways

1: He is at least partially of Mayan descent

2: He is an old guy

3: (optional) He is finding creative ways to fleece gringos of their money

Not if we add a twist perhaps. How about those who believe the World will end on the 31st place a bet with me? Charity donation of your choice (Via online with screenshot). You can pick the amount, I will of course match it. Although if the World ends on the 31st that means.............. hold on charity can't loose can it?

Come on it will be fun, I will also pay out on a major event happening on that date.

I will probably do a charity bet from now on when I see these threads
Just need a taker now, OP?

very intriguing and interesting. Not on topic directly, I've always been a conspiracy theorist on my own. can you give me some ideas where all of you get your information or at least some places so quickly. I have my own theories to things but no proof, curious where you guys (or girls) find yours. feel free to email me with some helpful tips drprime22@yahoo.com
thanks

I find predictions very useful. I may not know what is going to happen by a prediction. But at least I can know what isn't going to happen. But then we have members like Jakias Fogg wrench up those works once in awhile. Never can tell !

The end or not the end. Another final end date. Doom and Gloooooooom!! Doesn't matter. As long as there's TV, movies, novels, comics, or anyone with an imagination, there will always be another prophecy, meteor, comet, war, etc. If the world does end, nothing can be done about it.
Apocalypse threads are an important element of forums. It gives the people the chance to imagine a break from reality, bills, credit cards, MSM BS, and just general life. Who doesn't want the opportunity to become "The Governor"? I have a friend who occasionally wishes something would happen just to break the monotony of everyday life. Odd, I know. It's just escapism at its finest.
Just don't disappear into your bunker for a couple of months, expecting it all to be true. You may just emerge into a frightful world with The Real Housewives of Spokane, Pensacola, Fargo and the like. Now that is something to truly fear.

"if" we wake up the next day ?

Like the failed December and 3/21 predictions, I expect this to fail as well, but I'm sure someone is working on a Summer Doomsday Date.
