Mayan Prophecy: 2012

6/26/2009:

The end of the world is near?

One regular Hoboken411 reader (who’s a conspiracy theorist, anti-government, etc.) – expressed great interest in this movie coming out this winter (November 13, 2009): 2012. He basically said “We gotta go see this movie!”

While I believe the special effects will be incredible – I take the quality of this movie with a heaping “grain of salt” – because the two previous “doomsday” movies Roland Emmerich did (Independence Day, The Day after Tomorrow) – looked incredible in preview, but sucked beyond imagination. Perhaps he should make movie trailers exclusively?

Anyway, this website “Survive 2012” lists the following as possible “end of the world” scenarios. My favorites are “Time Travel Error” and “Global Warming.” Ridiculous!

Human

  • Flu Pandemic
  • Nuclear War / WW3 / Biological War
  • Large Hadron Collider
  • Nanotechnology
  • Religious Apocalypse
  • Nuclear Accident
  • Rise of the Machines
  • Genetic Modification
  • Time Travel Error

From Space

  • Nearby Supernova
  • Explosion from the black hole at the center of our galaxy – read about how something similar could have caused the recent tsunami
  • Gamma Ray Burst (GRB)
  • Asteroid/Meteor/Comet
  • Coronal Mass Ejection (CRE) from our Sun
  • Cosmic Rays
  • Solar System Falls Apart (butterfly effect)
  • Alien Invasion

From Earth

  • Magnetic Pole Shift
  • Crustal Pole Shift
  • Supervolcano – ie Yellowstone
  • Ice Age
  • Global Warming

Nothing is going to happen, the worst case scenario for 2012 is I sit back to watch Apocalypto again and my batteries die in my remote to the DVD player and I have to trek to CVS and wait on line.

Littered, I appreciate your concern. But I will try to watch this movie in order to compare it to some of the dreams I’ve had, lately, as well as within the past five years. 🙂

If I had to choose from the lists above, I believe that a big supervolcano eruption would be the most likely to happen in the near future. This is not to say that Korea isn’t douchey and won’t fire a nuclear bomb that results in many fiery deaths. Nor do I hope it happens– I’d like to leave this planet as swiftly and painlessly as possible. But nuclear weapons are within our control. Supervolcanoes are not, and there has been some notable seismic activity in the past year or so.

From the 40s-60s, The US alone detonated over 200 bombs above ground, something along the lines of 150,000 kilotons of explosive power.

That doesn’t even count what the Russians and Chinese did. The Russians made a monster called the Tsar Bomb, which they tested above ground. At 57 Megatons, it was more than 3 times the power of all the explosives used in WW2 including the 2 nukes dropped on Japan.

It would take the US and Russia or China going to war to end civilization as we know it. Not NK, Iran or Al Qeda.

Just sayin’, you need to put it into perspective.

I agree. Makes more sense than just a Korean lunatic’s unleashing of a bomb. It would result in many fiery deaths. But not the end of the world, especially if all it takes is about one nuke– maybe even less– to wipe him off the face of the planet.

And then we’re done. Unless anyone wants to add fuel to a fire by going into the wars you’ve mentioned, of course. But I don’t think that anyone wants to do away with civilization as a whole… Right?

I’m not religious but… Good God, at the very least make sure that the rising people lack sh*t for brains.

One of the more interesting things in prophecies that have always been written about is the ilustration of the seas growing louder. If you cross reference, seas is people, man. Seas is people! And all over, they’re rising.
