Post by Daldianus on Thu Aug 27, 2009 5:45 am

Somebody should tell MadHorseMan, palmtree and these other lunatics Wink

The world will not end in 2012

Btw. Neil deGrasse Tyson rules.

Yes indeed! I admire Neil deGrasse Tyson.

The Mayan calender will end in 2012.

Time to buy a new Mayan calender...

I wonder if they'll sell those at Office Depot.

Haha, yes!

My calendar actually ends on December 31st 2009 ... does that mean there will be a cosmic catastrophe???

Of course, Madhorseman was predicting May 21, 2011. Very Happy

Nah, my calender goes till January 31 2010, so I bet we will be ok until at least then.

I always have laughed at this prediction. I mean they wrote down their calender for hundreds of years in the future, do people think that they would do so forever? Isn't it more likely that they just got to a good stopping point and said, ok, it's someone else's turn now.

What then will be the next date of impending doom/glory? Should we start a pool?

I keep asking - no begging! - everyone who thinks the world is going to end or who thinks they are going to be raptured to please - please! - make things easier and sign everything over to me. So far, no one will do it.

I wish I had five bucks for every time some idiot or group thereof has claimed certainty about when the world will end.

I'd be lounging on a beach in the Bahamas with a swayte yung thang bringing me drinks with those silly little umbrellas stuck in them...and wouldn't have bought a round-trip ticket either.

Longer than that...I just checked the schedule we have for memorial candlelightings for a deceased relative, and it goes until 2021. No worries for 2012 here.

That's a Jewish custom that I think makes a lovely memorial. Immediate relatives of the deceased--parents, siblings, spouse and children--light a special 24-hour candle at sundown on the evening before the anniversary of the person's death on the Jewish calendar. The candle is left to burn until it runs out of wax and goes out. Thus, you need a list of what date to do so from year to year as the Jewish calendar is lunar.

The funny thing is that despite the entire history of eschtology (or the myriad myths floating out there) as well as other predictions of doomsday scenarios falling completely flat every single time (and the 2011 rapture/2012 end of the Mayan long count calendar being no exceptions), people will invariably continue to develop and predict such dates, and continue to believe that other people should head their warnings/predictions, because unlike the entirety of human history, "they've" got it right.

On a slightly serious note, (please forgive me for that).

The doom day sayers always forget that only half the world is one particularly date at any given time. As you say Fred is in tomorrow. (or perhaps we are in yesterday) I am sure the doom sayers have some kind of snarky ridiculous answer for that.

It is really sick and selfish of those types of people, the way they go on about it



Okay back to frivolity Very Happy

but lets clear some things up about the Rapture

no one is going to believe that we were raptured

scripture says those who remain will be deluded by a great lie put forth by the man of sin personally

our relatives may even get letters from us saying we are fine-that what the Nazi's did
