I remember hearing about this 2012 prediction on a documentary where a Mayan Indian was interviewed and said it was a load of rubbish (obvious I suppose). Never thought this nutty stuff had got to New Zealand until I just saw some local singer tell the Close Up Paranormal Show that he was going to build a house to protect himself against it.

This link sums it up pretty well, no doubt you hippy types will disagree but seriously, why do people buy into this crap?

There are probably people out there who still believe the world is flat, or the sun revolves around the earth.

I reckon some people buy into ludicrous crap just to amuse themselves, then promptly forget why they were interested in it in the first place.

Others just find it so difficult to think for themselves they will believe whatever they are told, Christianity is a prime example, Challenge someone to think about the shape and size of the universe and bang, brain shuts down, mind closes, Simple fool embraces invisible friend instead.

Yep according to the Mayan calender (and this is only if modern man has interpreted the dates correctly) the end of this current chapter in Earth's history will end on 23 Dec 2012.

For those who might be interested there is a good book that explains as much of what is known called 'Fingerprints of the Gods' by Graham Hancock. While I don't personally believe in any sort of supreme being this book actually sets out to prove that our ancestors knew far more than we give them credit for and that modern man started way before scientists think it we did. It actually sets out to disprove the theory of God.

So for those with an Open mind it is a good read whether your Christian or Atheist

There was an interesting doco on the other day about the Mayans & their calendar. The theme was that the start of their last calendar & the end of the cycle before (5200 years ago) was coincident with an apocalyptic weather event. There's some evidence that there was an extremely sudden cooling experienced in a few places around the world at that time (they showed some 5200-year-old plants under an ice sheet in S America that were practically snap-frozen). Hence that Mayans fully expected the same to happen at the end of the next cycle in 2012.

I suppose the whole idea is spiced up by all the recent global warming warnings, but possibly the weather is subtly influenced by the cosmic realignment that is coming around for this cycle? Spooky, huh?

I'll be sure to have my woolies & my sunnies & togs handy just in case in a couple of years...

Who knows if it'll happen or not, but everytime I hear something will end/finish in 2012 I always laugh. Telecom CDMA network for example.

Oh yeah, you're all going to die Dec 21 2012. :)

Neil deGrasse Tyson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_deGrasse_Tyson) Debunks the theory (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJjQMwEjC1I). And rather well I felt.

I dont think anyone said people were not allowed to believe anything they want, but the same democracy also allows us to ridicule those people if we so want to do.

For example I believe that 'i before e except after c' :banana

You dont find it interesting that the Mayans and the famous prophet (whats hes name again?) both have these dates as the end of the world? Apart from the fact they both have space constellations and movements accurately time-lined

Weighing your argument carefully, Keith Einstein and his reindeer eating neighbour doubt your theory is watertight.

The flat-earth believers btw do not include many cyclists.

Only if that is MY belief my friend.

I also duly note that there are many beliefs but which of these are correct?
Choose just one. :-)

I am totally cool with the ice cold beer religion which in my considered opinion is correct. The only thing that will end the world in this religion is drinking warm beer.

What's that got to do with anything? No one said he couldn't believe what he wanted - but in a democracy I can laugh at him too.

His best quote was that he thought that everyone else needed a dose of reality.

I like this recommendation to include in a doomsday survival kit:


A mother in law. They are very good to have around now and then cuz lots of em are very scary so think of all the money you would save not having to buy an alarm system or attack dogs. You can just post their picture on your front door for protection and make sure you have a copy in your wallet in case somebody try to mug you

As Jerome K Jerome said in his book "3 Men In A Boat" (1889)

"..but there, everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother in law died, and they came down on him for the funeral expenses"

The penalty for bigamy or polygamy is having more than one mother in law I suspect.
