When I first heard why the world was supposed to end I actually thought it was quite pathetic. History Channel and other channels have about 100 specials a day on this, So I looked it up and on december 21st, 2012, when the sun rises above the horizon the earth and sun will line up with the center of galaxy......And thats all they got. This happens roughly every 25,800 years. Given earth has been around for approximately 4.5 billion years, this event has happened about 1774186 times and there is no evidence of the world ending that many times, (I would think there would be some).

Just had to vent this, It frustrates me for some reason.

PS

Excuse me if my math is bad ph34r.gif But its pretty close


PPS

I do however give the Mayans credit for having an impossibly accurate calendar


PPPS

I also know that alot of other things are supposed to happen in 2012, like the world be shown psychic connection and a "nossphere" will be created, Something my Physics teacher told me that sounded cool. A connection of all human thought or something.

Thought this to be kind of crazy but at the same time a bit intriguing as well. The Mayan calender ends and were suppose to believe the world will too... We had a bit of discussion a while back and I think the general consensus was that it's not going to happen.. laugh.gif Still a nice read though..

Edit: How can you get a cool reason for edit like that?

Yeah I'm quite positive that the 2012 thing is false.

Mainly I believe this is false because of religion. But even still the whole idea of it seems dumb

At the rate this world is going...im thinking 2011 lol lets hope things get better in the world and maybe we may make it to 2012 to find out. Nah I think we will be around for a little longer than that actually but i can see why people get distressed over those types of programs. My fiance was the same way when i was watching it and she was listening from across the room.

Obviously Rush don't believe it ...thats how come they wrote 2112 cause they travelled forward in time and found out that the guitar was an instrument of evil according to the Priests at the Temple of Syrinx! tongue.gif

Well, they've been wrong so far. But when it comes to the end of the world, you only need to be right once, right?

The Mayans believed that the world "as we know is" will end. Something with Ether...

Not much of a believer myself either. As you said it yourself, these things have occured numorous times. Besides that, much of this has evolved through religion and faith in the aforementioned. I'm not much into believing in religion and such, but take the science approach.

I think the Rush idea is the most solid and believable, And that sentenced has no biased elements in it, I swear ph34r.gif


I still have some friend who believe the 2012 thing, Even though they have no idea who the mayans or nostradamus or anyone else who predicted it are.

Personally i think it's a load of nonsense smile.gif
The event that occurs on 21-12 2012 has as mentioned before happened quite a number of times before, but the planet is still intact.

Yeah. Everyone thought there would be all kinds of problems on 01/01/01. All the machines would stop working. Total chaos.....

And that was all related to man's doing. No cosmic alignment or anything....

If anyone can destroy the world its man.

And he didnt do it then.

Depends how you look at it actually. I don't think the world will end, we will simply go into another age. New Age.

Yeah, mankind hardly need any help exterminating themselves?
We're pretty much doomed already, just because of our own stupidity. And if we can't kill ourselfes soon enough, it's just a matter of time before incurable disease, nuclear war, asteroid to come crashing down or us destroying the environment making the earth impossible to live on?

If you think about it, how long have man existed rally? If I remember right, someone said that if the life of earth is 24 hours, mankind has been around 1 second... So why should we "live forever"?
So just play yer guitars, and wait for the day of doom, and remember to play only the minor scales, they fit better than those jolly, happy major ones some use... wink.gif

I don't believe that.
Homever every human race that has ever existed on earth, has survived 200,000 years. And our race has existed almost 200,000 years...
Anyway, I still don't care. If we are doomed it's because of ourselves, not because some ancient calendar says so.

I don't believe it because there's no convincing scientific prove backing the whole theory, beisdes we've seen these doom stories in the past, and they weren't true (luckily laugh.gif), as when people said that the world would end in 1999, then 2000, then 2001... now it's 2012... laugh.gif

I bet in 2014 they'll say the world will end in 2025 smile.gif

And for our own good, I hope they are wrong cool.gif
