Lately there has been alot of talk of the world ending in 2012. Some people have also talked about this as the New Age. The Mayans even have 12-21-12 as the last day of their calander and as the day when the world ends at the hands of metorites and such.
Nostradamus, there was a special on him on the History Channel a few weeks ago, spekas of the Anti-Christ and how God will bring about the New Age using fire instead of water. He also speaks of the time when the center of the universe is crossed by eight celestial lines, and this phenomenon only happens every 13000 years, thriteen being the unluckly numerical value. Nostradamus also expects the world to be encased in a chaotic end at the hands of the Anti-Christ in 2012.
What do you think?
Dreams surely are difficult, confusing, and not everything in them is brought to pass for mankind. For fleeting dreams have two gates: one is fashioned of horn and one of ivory. Those which pass through the one of sawn ivory are deceptive, bringing tidings which come to nought, but those which issue from the one of polished horn bring true results when a mortal sees them.

And if you do a simple a Google search of 2012 you'll get a large flow of sites concerning this fateful date. Now im not asking any of you to believe this or start stockpiling for this New Era, but I just thought this was one of the more interesting things I've heard, and for me alot more believable then any other stories I've heard.
And I honestly believe Nostradamus was onto something,,
I knew about the date 2012 a few years ago when my little brother was going through a bad paranoia stage. He kept on talking about this date and couldn't sleep at night. This wasn't as bad as my own paranoia stage thankfully.
What my problem with Nostradamus is that a lot of people intentionally go looking through it to try and find something bad or specific to what's going on nowadays. They like to link it to smaller things. One boy I knew linked it to a murder where a guy's fingers were cut off or something to that effect. I honestly highly doubt Nostradamus was able to predict something so small, and that could happen at any time period. To me, Nostradamus prophecies are right up there with people who think that if you play a KISS song backwards you'll hear the devil. when really, what you have to do is play Chicago backwards.
Also, I once knew a girl who thought Napoleon was the first of the anti-christs described by Nostradamus (I have no idea if this is a widely accepted belief or not since she's the only one I heard this from) Anyone who honestly thinks that needs to dig up a book about Napoleon and do some damn research on him. If Napoleon was an anti-christ, then I'm the arch angel Michael. Rulers like Stalin and Pinochet are more "anti christs" than Napoleon ever was.
