I was looking into peoples’ general plans for december 12, 2012.
It could be fun to know since many get married or plan festivities and events on dates like August 8, 2008 (“080808”) etc.
It was saddening to instead see the many lies by doomsday “interpretators”, of dubious origins.
Claims about The Mayans, for example, are frivolous. The Mayans never said that the world will end on a certain date – their calendar just did (end). The rest is speculation. An equally valid speculation about the meaning of that is that they didn’t have the comfort of iPads thousands of years ago, so it is conceivable that the guy(s) writing the calendar by hand got tired and figured that someone else would continue the extremely forward-looking work that they’d already done. Also, the Mayans weren’t Christians.. their concept of “time” didn’t begin on the year of Jesus’ birth, and they didn’t reset the calendar for that purpose.
It’s saddening that so few doomsday mongers actually bother to read and check their facts. Many things that Nostradamus supposedly said (for instance about 9/11).. he simply never wrote in his “quatrains”. The “interpretations” by gossip mongers who never bothered to actually read them are so far-fetched that anyone on crack would be equally “reliable”. That’s subsequently why the most persistent doomsday fanatics have had to reset their “predictions” or rather wishes about Earth’s destruction.
Fortunately there are countless people who actually seem to have a life, hence I could find some fun, constructive and interesting reads about 12/12/2012.
