It is the beginning of the end of the world as you know it! We are all going to die, the planet is going to fold in on itself and Aliens are going to exterminate us, or the Earth is going flip on is axis. You must of heard this right? Hard not to escape knowing that the world is going to end on December 21, 2012. That’s right exactly one year, only 365 days from this point it is the end of the Mayan long count a point in time that many are saying signifies the end of the world. That the planets are going to align, Ragnorak wakes up, Aliens land, the Anti-Christ walks the Earth in short it is going to be the end of us all.
Well… Actually it isn’t… Doom, fire and brimstone merchants jump on every possible ending of the world date they can. Why do they do this? It isn’t to inform, it isn’t to save us from ourselves, its too line there own wallets. Remember the fuss over Y2K? The conman Harold Camping of Family Radio and his May 21st Rapture? Whenever I hear about End of the World Prophesy’s I get very skeptical and always ask people to think for themselves.
My theory is the Mayan’s just got tired of counting, of calculating so far out that they figured they will just add to the calender should the need arrive. While Dec 21, 2012 is supposed to be the end of an Age and we move forward into a greater spiritual awakening, I doubt we will feel anything other than the day turning to Dec 22 and being one step closer to Christmas 2012. To be more honest I’m more worried about that asteroid that is swinging around into our orbital path in 2036, than anything happening around Dec 21, 2012. The future after all is what we make it, and we are given the gifts to make this happen as we choose.
So in closing, we might be looking at an end of an era, that I can believe. After all the only constant is change and the last couple of years we’ve seen some interesting changes across the entire world. Live your life, enjoy your family and friends. Think for yourself and don’t be a sheep, eh?
Of course I could be completely wrong, so just in case I welcome our Alien overlords 😛
