Does anyone really believe Nov. 26th, 2012 @ 12:25 AM Reply

Does anyone really believe that the world is going to end this December? I mean, I find it a little strange that a couple of years ago it was such a popular subject, and now that it's drawing near nobody seems to want to bring it up.

Anyone else think about this?

It's been debunked and the people who brought it up were mostly the ones who made money off of scaring people.

Like people said it's been debunked. It was an interesting thought though.

I remember the morning I woke up thinking the world was ending. It'd been a hot night so my window was wide open in my room and I awoke to what sounded to me in my drowsy state to be a bomb plummeting to the land. I jumped out of bed in blind panic and looked around madly as my heartbeat quickened and imagining that this was the end while the sound grew louder and louder, then it got quieter and quieter. It had been a low, really low flying helicopter. I assume tracking some criminal but my god it really shook me up.

I know what you mean OP. Despite December 21st being so close it seems like if anything people are talking about it less.

Probably for the best actually since its kind of stupid and I highly highly doubt anything is going to happen.

Maybe the government doesn't want people to riot because of the supposed end of the world so they are using their manipulator rays to stop people from talking about it.

People get scared and paranoid when you bring up death and ENd times shit, but the world will end one day of course; but only God knows when; so for now I just chill and roll with the flow of things as they gradually come into existance

No.

But Isaac Newton predicted 2060 was the end. I find his prediction much more reliable than a hollywood-fabricated hoax

I don't think the Mayans ever even claimed that 2012 meant the end of the world.

Even if they did, who cares? They're all dead anyway.

The Mayans lost all credibility when their civilization got wiped out by the Spaniards.

Does anyone ever even consider the fact that these stupid ass monkey people where able to make stone structures with shitty ass tools and low technology, and we aren't able to recreate what they did even with our laser cutters and torsion cranes? Does anyone ever consider the fact that they knew how to map the stars, and knew that there was a strange energy coming from the center of the galaxy, without use of any kind of magnifying lens or anything?

They accurately predicted multiple major events throughout our history, and then around what we know as december, they recorded that the galaxy would align in a way that the energy coming from the center of our galaxy, (And by the way, we know for a fact that there is a deadly amount of gamma radiation coming from the center of the galaxy due to the supermassive black hole) would hit the earth, and wipe out civilization.

After that, the calender ends. I'm not trying to get anyone to believe that anything is really gonna happen, I'm just saying that the Mayans have a fuckishly huge amount of credibility, and I wouldn't immediately dismiss it as bullshit

Everyone freaked out at first, but once more people started talking about how stupid the idea was, the voices of crazy people got drowned out, and they all either stopped talking or just can't be heard among the midst of people not caring.
