So, I’m bored and waiting for my dad to come pick me up and take me home for the summer. Somehow, I got into a short discussion awhile ago with my mom about 2012. I thought it was December 12th supposed to be the doomsday, but it’s actualy December 21st, which is a Friday. And I don’t know if there’s a particular time that, I dunno, anything is supposed to happen. Plus the fact that Australia will see the day much sooner than I will. Unless I somehow happen to be in Australia. I would be okay with that. Anyway, so, I guess I will be at home, hopefully done exams by then.
I expect something will happen on December 21, 2012, but it will be man-orchestrated. There’s no shit in the cosmos going to happen, no fairies in the sky, no liquid hot magma bursting through the ground. ‘Least no more than usual. But there will be some whackjobs going all Kool-Aid on us and that sort of thing. I wonder what the media’s going to be like? They will probably be covering impending doom as much as they are covering impending royal wedding currently. I do have a serious worry somewhere in my head that someone will orchestrate something really big and bad. I don’t know how, possibly, unless they are a world leader with access to nuclear stuff. Hopefully none of those guys are whackjobs (hah!).
Anyway, I was curious to read some of the supposed prophecies, so I start to Google “what will…” and “…happen in 2012″ comes up as the second result. Looks like lots of people are curious. Found this bullshit site, which was a bit too much to read during exam time, but now, I shall pick it apart.
There are people however that believe that because the Mayan civilization disappeared a long time ago their predictions are meaningless. They also seem to believe that the ancient Maya calendar is impossible to match up to our modern Gregorian calendar.
Okay, um, the deal with calendars. They are man made. Yes, they are usually made in such a way to coincide with astronomic events, like winter solstice and stuff. Buuut, we only switched to the Gregorian calendar in 1582 (Thanks, Wikipedia!). Before that, we used the Julian calendar, and the reason we switched, was because the Julian calendar was off. Wikipedia says: “The motivation for the Gregorian reform was that the Julian calendar assumes that the time between vernal equinoxes is 365.25 days, when in fact it is about 11 minutes less.” So, basing anything off the Mayan calendar is a bit ridiculous, because you’re assuming they made no mistakes whatsoever in calculating all these future events that would happen five hundred years in the future. Yeah, they may have been smarter than present day people, but they weren’t perfect.
Calendars are bullshit.
We know for sure that on this date the sun will line up perfectly with the massive black hole, or Dark Rift, at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. This galactic alignment happens only once every 25,800 years.
Okay, tell me please, how exactly two objects, one which is rotating around the other, can line up. I can understand how nine objects, such as nine planets in our solar system, can line up. Our sun (and solar system) is moving around that black hole basically in an ellipse, kind of like water going down a drain. It is always lined up with the black hole. Our galaxy is a disc with a black hole in the center and our solar system somewhere on the disc. Like, I dunno, if our solar system suddenly decided to drop out of the disc and start “floating” — or whatever it is we are doing in space — below or above the black hole, then yeah, I guess you could say they lined up. But that’s not going to friggen happen. The Maya, who were so smart, must have surely known we would keep going around the drain like we are now.
I’m gonna guess they got that 25,800 years from the fact that The Sun is about 30,000 lightyears from the center of the Milky Way. Also, lightyears != years. A lightyear is a distance, doofus. The Mayans could tell you that.
Planet X, or Nibiru, passed between the planets Jupiter and Mars some 7,200 years ago. According to archeological and biblical records, the Great Flood resulted from it.
Okay, um, this is kind of impossible for this to happen. If Planet X is a little planet, ie. smaller than our sun, then it couldn’t just pass between Jupiter and Mars; it would be sucked into the sun’s gravitational pull and would start orbiting around the sun. Else, if Planet X is a big ole planet, bigger than our sun, we would be orbiting around it instead.
Also, jerkass, God made the Great Flood. Probably because he was pissed at the Mayans for being smartasses.
If it were so easy to explain global warming by blaming it on the increased greenhouse gas production today, and more importantly, if there was no consequence to distribute that knowledge, don’t you think the brightest minds in science would have figured it out and arrived at a definite conclusion by now? Yet the debate rages on and the official word is that it’s still “unsubstantiated.”
I thought scientists were at a consensus. It’s just people like you who are sticking their fingers in their ears and yelling “no consensus! La la la! It’s just a theory!”. Scientists know what’s up. People who don’t want to listen to reason and science don’t.
The Book of Revelations in the Bible, the predictions of Merlin, the prophecies of Nostradamus and even pop culture today all agree that the world cannot go on as we know it and that the end of the world or a New Age of humanity is eminent.
Their emphasis, not mine. Pop culture is surely the pinnacle of human knowledge. ‘Nuff said.
Nostradamus (1503-1566). A French physician and astrologer who wrote a collection of prophecies written in quatrains, entitled Centuries, which were published in 1555 and in very intricate (as well as obscure) means illustrate what he foresaw.
Quatrains? Isn’t that what freaking poets use? Did anyone ever consider that Nostradamus was just a poet?
Nostradamus was known for the fact that he proclaimed that his biggest prophecies would not be revealed until 500 years after his death. Since that time historians, scholars and students have obsessed over his work wondered what exactly what that meant, and why. Now, coming up on 500 years after his death and getting nearer to 2012…
1566 + 500 = 2066. 2066 = 2012, right?
Well, time to go.
