2012 Doomsday The End is Near

Let's feed the fear and fuel the Doomsday Disaster scenarios some extremists are predicting for December 2012.

2012 Doomsday The End is Near

Let us feed the fear shall we? The recent increase in the prediction of 2010 hurricanes, the oil spill in the gulf and the economic woes that are spreading through markets around the world like the flu, are fueling the Doomsday Disaster scenarios some extremists are predicting for December 2012.

Floods, hurricanes and erupting volcanoes, too, provide nourishment to the panic of those already feeding on fear. My grandmother always told me, “The one thing you can count on is change.” Yes, the earth is changing. Humans have stripped Mother Earth of her natural resources for many years… what did we expect to happen?

We have lusted to consume her oil, which is the blood of Mother Earth. Our envy, greed and pride to have more than our neighbors has stripped her of natural resources and encouraged gluttony. We are sloth-like towards God and express wrath and impatience for our fellow man! It is no wonder she is pissed!

Www.December212012.org claims that governments around the world are aware of the impending emergency situations. They suggest that Ready.gov and FEMA.gov were developed so people can help themselves prepare to survive because their governments cannot. “You and your family will have to be more proactive and assume more preemptive strategies for long term or even permanent survival. You need to realize that this will be a global event that will effect each and every living thing on the planet. Food and clean water will be scarce and public utilities will be nonexistent, The world governments can not and will not be able to assist in your continuing wellbeing and you will more or less be on your own,” according to the website, of course. They will also sell you books, food and first aid kits from their 2012 on-line store that you may want to take a look at. Some of their products, though alarmingly overpriced (more intentional scare tactics, I presume?), would do well in your hurricane kit.

Like the warnings and uncomfortable speculation that surrounded the roll-over to the new millennium, I was hoping for a bit of excitement and maybe the loss of power for a couple of weeks. While being forced to spend time with your family because there is no TV, radio or internet is less appealing than wanting to spend time with your family, I believe the family unit as a whole would have benefited greatly from the ordeal, but it didn’t work out that way.

The Serenity Prayer

Personally, I need to concern myself with my reality. What I see in the world, without worrying to the point of becoming ill or obsessed over things I cannot change. I think we all have become more conscience of what we are doing to our environment on a global level. We are growing and raising more of our own food and making mindful decisions about waste. Just imagine if everyone were to take a bicycle or walk to the corner market to pick up a few items. If you live close enough to work try walking, cycling or even roller skates! My kids rode bicycles to school most of the time, even though we live on a bus route. Unless threatened by inclement weather, their preferred after school transportation to their part-time jobs was a bicycle rather than make two trips giving them a ride because they did not have a driver’s license.

Grow some vegetables on your back porch, learn to eat leftovers and walk a little more. If we all make the smallest effort we can make a difference… well, until it all comes to an end in December of 2012!

    Good advice Judie. Let me add a couple of additional considerations. The world is big and to claim The End is Near is a bit overblown. I also think that the economic set backs are much more painful than the physical demands in the aftermath. I have this video that explains very clearly where we are and as an economist I could not have said it any better. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eb1n1X0Oqdw . It's 54 minutes but worth the investment. It's not doomsday persé but it is a suggestion to make sure you belong in the 20% group and learn the tools needed.

    I still stick to the mantra that we're living in interesting times, because the balances are changing (correcting). Your bicycle suggestion is great too. Last Saturday I went to a garage sale and ran into a magnificent deal on a dirt bike with 24 gears, front wheel suspension and hardly used. Yesterday I took it to the gym, ran errands to the bank and the post office and enjoyed every minute of it.

    Well, Who's going to be right or wrong doesn't matter but there are several uncertainties.

    The Mayan Calendar stops on December 21, 2012. However, could it be that the Mayans were going to create a new time line at a later date. Secondly The Gregorian Calendar we live by is very inaccurate and as far as I remember the 7 year mistake was never corrected and we are currently living in the year 2003. Is that correct?

    Furthermore Nostradamus' calendar stretches far into the year 3000 and beyond in his predictions. Is there going to be a line-up of all planets in our solar system? Not all planets are going to be in the line-up. Was the Mayan Calendar coming to an end because of the 26,000 year cycle ending and the beginning of the “El Quinto Sol” or fifth sun phase or “renewal of time” also called the Cycle of Aquarius was going to start?

    All good questions, yet we should not stray our focus that we are currently on a human self destructing path. Raping mother Earth the way we have done in the past century will cost us dearly if we don't start to make the changes. This has nothing to do with 2012 and prophecies but with common sense. We have destroyed large parts of our shield (ozone layer) that make life on earth possible in the first place. Without the ozone layer we'll be fried the moment the first sun ray would hit you.

    We have gone beyond the reason of reasonable by extracting oil for mother earth in places we do not control (deep sea drilling) and by God I hope that the idiots in government(s) are not considering a nuclear blast as last resort to stop the “leak”. The location of this blast, as a non-scientist, I can merely deduce from other scientific reports, will change the ocean conveyor belt. I have no proof of this but looking at the ocean flows something tells me that a nuclear blast will alter the belt. If so we're in deep shit and the Next Ice Age will become a fact.

    furthermore, we need to realize that climatic changes are happening and the break off of more Antarctic Ice shelfs will in crease the earth's wobble (23 degrees currently) with a possibility of a pole reversal if the balance of the axis is dramatically altered.

    Calendars and prophecies have not done this, we, the human race, DID. Let's start by fixing our bad behavior and the rest is going to history.
