12/21/2012

I was watching the History Channel and it seems a lot of people who predict the future think that that is when the world is going to end. Which makes me believe that 12/20/2012 is going to be a very busy and different day. One thing anyone can predict is that, if the world does not end on 12/21/2012 then a lot of babies will probably be born after 8/21/2013.

The world has been predicted to have ended already a few times. We are still here. Yet, one day the world will end and the person who predicts it will never get to say, "I told you so." So why bother to predict something you cannot possibly cash in on?

Some of the signs I will be looking for that the world will end are:

Cows stop giving milk and no ice cream will be made. All of a sudden everything on TV will be reruns. No one will be buying Christmas presents until after 12/21/2012.
All the planets will line up with the sun and the planets larger than the sun will block out the sunlight so the smaller planets won't get any light for awhile. All credit will be canceled and all debts will have to be paid by the beginning of December 2012. All New Year Celebrations for the year 2013 will be canceled.

I'd like to write more but due to the limited time left, I decided I got a few things to take care of in case the world does end on 12/21/2012. or 12/21/12 notice it is all 12. The middle 12 is reversed. Maybe that is a sign that the prediction can be reversed also.

What do you think. What will be a sign the world will end for you?

When I see chunks of space rock crashing against my backyard, I'll decide that that's when the world is ending.

I think the whole point behind the people who 'predict' the end of the world is the fact that they can actually cash in on it.
These people know what they sell.

I don't know... if the whole internet goes down? It'll be end of MY world. :)

I don't really buy in predictions. To be honest: if they can predict it, they can do something about it.

There's also the one about how this Pope is supposed to be the seond to last Pope. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prophecy_of_the_Popes) interesting read. :)

Personally I'm a preterist, but I suppose it could happen again.

Hmm I don't know...the Mayans have predicted a lot of events throughout history. I hope they're wrong about the 12.21.2012 thing = /

ps: thanks for your feedback

I do not believe in predictions so I agree that a lot of babies will probably be born after 8/21/2013 ... everything for a good cause ;)

Good post. Very thought-provoking. After numerous inaccurate attempts, predictions sound so cliche to me now. But still, I dread the day...
