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.

^Agreed. I know it's wrong for me to say this, but for some twisted and unknown reason, I'm looking forward to this day because I want to see how everyone reacts. Or rather, how they react prior to the day. Surely when December rolls around in 2012, two things are gonna happen: The whole Happy Holidays magical scenario that, of course, occurs every year, and also the whole "panicky chaos" state you said. I can just see people running all over the place wayyyyy before December 21, 2012, like say... Hmm, a convenient day would be Black Friday, to go run and do ridiculous things like buying ridiculous amounts of Spam, ramen, and other nonperishables... In fact, I just had this disturbing mental image strike through my brain about people looting food pantries...
I can even see myself amidst this chaos- just playing the safe-card, you know. I wouldn't be surprised if I turned into one of those loonies holding up cardboard signs saying 'The End is Nigh' started acting crazy by running people over with shopping carts because I wanted the last roll of toilet paper. But a more sensible me would be going out and buying a surplus amount of food, water, and other basic necessities of life. In fact, during Y2K, my parents actually went and filled up buckets, sinks, bottles, and the tub in our house with water because they just wanted to be safe. They told me this when I asked them they did during Y2K, since me (and my bro) were like 6 years old when this happened.
So, I just want to get my point across that even though I don't believe in it, it doesn't mean that I'll be a pompous, arrogant person if/when the day comes. I'm not going to call anyone out on being a gullible weenie and I will stand and take it if someone name calls me. Better safe than sorry, right? XD
@ Katya Oh yeah... nukes. Totally forgot about those (somehow). True, some political figure could get all irate and press that pretty read button, but, really, what are the odds somethnig like that happens on December 21, 2012?
