2012…End of the World? Beginning of a New Era?

A rational person would just call 2012 an arbitrary number grasped on to by conspiracy theorists, paranoid people, and the History Channel.

There’s no evidence showing that the world will end in 3 years, but where’s the fun in that? Lets have a look around the internet at what people are saying about 2012…

On May 28th, Jenny McCarthy blogged about 2012:

And I’m worried about sugar with the end of the world coming. LOL. Watching glimpses of the news and seeing nuclear testing scares the crap out of me. Anybody else? Many times I have asked myself about trying so hard to be healthy with food when there is a possible dust cloud that could do more damage than anything we fear now. Then, on other side, I think the people that do care and know how to detox and keep up on their vitamins and care about what they put in their mouths might have a better shot of making it through the big bad cloud. Americans have been worried about the big one for so many years, but after 9/11 happening in our lifetime, we now believe anything is possible. Gee, can you tell I just started PMS. LOL. I usually have dreams of bombs when I’m PMSing, and now I’m talking about them. Can’t wait to see what I dream about tonight! Probably my career going up in flames. LOL!

Jenny McCarthyLOL LOL LOL…yikes…if this is any indication of her critical thinking skills, it’s no wonder she thinks vaccines cause autism. Take your vitamins! They’ll save you from the dust cloud!

Moving along, lets look at an evidence-based prediction of what might happen in 2012. Justin Wolfers predicts that there will be no more Cash in 2012. No, not the green stuff, the name. Truly the end of an era. Based on this study, Wolfers predicts that Cash’s rapid rise to popularity will mean its descent into obscurity by 2012. Can this also be applied to the popularity of Twitter? Wolfers thinks so.

My prediction for 2012? Another dimension will open up leading to another Gozerconfrontation with the ancient Sumerian God known as Gozer. I think you’ll find all the evidence you need to convince you I’m right when you see the release date posted here.

    To be fair, the number 2012 itself has little to do with the doomsday predictions so it is not just an arbitrary number. This date coincidentally marks the extent of the Mayan calendar. These brilliant astrologers were able to deduce the exact time of eclipses etc without modern day instruments so their calendar holds some sway. Many believe they were influenced by aliens (of course, this is the Eurocentric view – “what? coloured people figured something out on their own?????”)

    In my opinion the cakendar ended because they got tired and 2012 seemed really far away.

    There is also the “prophecies” of Nostradamus, the long dead nut case who predicted that 2012 marked the year that our cities would burn etc etc. In reality, his prophiecies are so vague that they can be interpreted any which way you feel like. Kind of like the bible without the contradictions. Check it out:

    that is just one of the many websites that reveals this BS for what it is.

    Thanks for the humourous post – stay clear of the dust clouds!

    In the coming 2012… The shape of the world will not be the same again. The world is going to end in 2012 does not mean end of the world in 2012! Why? Only the human values will change… after initial collapse of the materialistic world… after death of 1200 million people in the coming world war 3… If we still say the world would come to an end then so be it.

    What evidence do you have to show that this war and this change will happen in 2012?
