Potpourri of Stuff!
I’ve been researching a lot on this and from what I inferred, this is a wild goose chase. We have the dots but we are either connecting them wrongly or not connecting them at all. This is sad. The doomsday prophecies are a set of raw theories that somehow imply that the world is going to end on December 2012. These string of theories and prophecies are dubbed as the “2012 phenomenon“. I think we might need to be a little more optimistic and use science and not religion to conclude with the results.
The frequently used prophecies that allegedly seem to “predict” the end of the world are as follows.
3) The “I Ching”
5)The crashing of planet Nibiru on earth
7) The death of the star Betelgeuse
10) The prophecies of Merlin
11) The Oracle of Delphi
12) The prophecies of Mother Shipton
14) The Bible (The revelation)
16) Predictions of the Hopi Tribe
17) The predictions of Nostradamus
18) The predictions of Edgar Cayce
Here are a list of detailed doomsday events that are speculated to be responsible for the extinction of humans and the end of the world scenarios. Most of the above given theories are either fabricated or misunderstood. Scientists reject most of the theories aces pseudoscience and conclude that the world will not end in 2012. You will be surprised to see the list of all predicted doomsday/apocalyptic events that all went wrong and did not come to pass.
There are so many videos that propagate the idea that the world will end in 2012. Here are a set of videos :
On the other hand, science has provided a timeline that is way too big – billions of years into the future. Check out the Timeline for the far future. So there is a big reason to hope that nothing happens in December 2012. In contrast, some people believe that December, 2012 will not be an end of the world scenario but a “minor catastrophe” (that does not necessarily end human existence) might occur. This may range anywhere from a huge tsunami that destroys a lot of islands , volcanoes that destroys a large population, some disease outbreak or extraterrestrial activity on Earth or something of that sort. Though strictly speaking in a fictitious sense, it is not easy to ignore these possibilities completely because of the curious human nature.
My views , nope, 2012 ain’t the end of the world. It’s too soon. The ancient Mayans wouldn’t be very happy about this stupid hypothesis that we conjured out of their calendar. Let the end come when it is “scheduled” to come. Mankind will do something to protect it’s existence when the disaster approaches. To conclude, I personally feel that 2012 is just another bullshit from religion freaks. No disrespect intended. Peace!
