Why, because it was a scam?
I'm predicting a spike in the hippy suicide rate in early-mid 2013.
EDIT: wrong thread.
Isn't the point of the whole 2012 thing not that some apocalyptic mega-event is going to occur that is going reap massive destruction, but that the world quite literally is going to end i.e somehow be snuffed out of existence? If that's the case, stocking up would be beside the point.
yeah how is food going to help you when it is yourself that is to become food for unicron? you think you can barter for your life? i offer you these soft batch cookies in my stead? you dream!
The big point against this nonsense is that they can't even keep their stories straight about what will happen.
No, but I've heard about it. It actually prompted me to look up the particular 'prophecy' verse in the Old Testament to see what all the fuss was about, but like nearly every verse of scripture I couldn't read much into it.
Today, the Chinese government arrested 500+ members of a Christian cult that is claiming that beginning on 12/21/12, the sun won't shine and electricity will stop working. http://news.yahoo.com/china-detains-500-plus-people-doomsday-rumors-123354235.html Apparently, only the Chinese government can make such audacious claims.
As someone who wishes doomsday rumors would go away, I like the cut of the Chinese government's jib.
my physics teacher talked about that when I was in junior year
won't end the world though
I am very dissapointed with the lack of End Of The World orgies.
I think a lot of the obsession (at least within the last 30 years or so) has been more about the fear of death and dying. I think in an odd way the fact that they know when they'll die and they won't be dying alone is comforting.
probably not. why are you so sure tho?
It's going to come close, but not to the point of hitting the planet.
Probably because apophis is a false god and only the one true god can end the world
If I was the CEO of a power company, I would try to arrange for a short blackout on the 21st just to mess with people. Sure, the people on ventilators and iron lungs might croak, but after the power came back, I think everybody would think it was kind of funny.
Not long now. Our forecast is looking uplifting.
When all of these idiots wake up in the morning on the 22nd, I wonder if they'll be mad at the Mayans... even though the end of the world was not something the Mayans were intending to predict with their calendar.
Oh? Oh wait since you're the Guardian of Arlon does that mean you'll finally let this Arlon fellow loose upon the world, and Arlon will destroy everything with Jeezus music which will cause people's heads to explode ala Scanners?
This isn't Mars Attack, no to your questions, and Arlon is a place not a monster.
Here's a link to the real date for the end of the universe. We've only got a couple billion years to make a plan, so we'd best get started.
When they mean the end of the world do they mean BLAMMO it all stops and we are done or that the Earth gets all messed up and I can wander the world going through all your stuff?
Sure, science also needs its catchphrases to appeal to the masses, but... the big bagel?
Would you prefer the big torus?
