Will the year 2012 be an apocalyptic game-changer?
The Los Angeles Times ^ | January 1, 2012 | Mitchell Landsberg

There are years that are remembered for changing the course of human history:1492. 1776. 1945.

Then there are years that were predicted to change the course of history. 1844, when Judgment Day didn't materialize. 1910, when Halley's Comet didn't wipe out humanity. And remember Y2K?

But rarely does a year arrive with such a mixture of anticipation and dread as 2012.

We speak not of the presidential campaign but of the Maya calendar, and the projection that it — or, more accurately, a cycle within it — will end on Dec. 21, 2012. That date has kicked up a swirl of anticipation, based on science, pseudoscience, hucksterism and spiritual belief. The idea is that 2012 will be a game-changer, the last year of civilization as we know it....

I’ve got a feeling we’re about to see a run on aluminum foil.

It’s fun to watch the uninformed media confuse the “prepper” movement with the Mayan calendar. Do these guys read anything beyond the front page of two or three web sites?

And then steeple only read the first two paragraphs oh these articles.

Based on THAT and not the Mayan Calendar makes me sure we are screwed.

Well, according to the program I watched yesterday (on TLC I think), there's the "Anti-Christ" - the "False Prophet" - and "Satan".

So between Hillary, 0bama and Soros, I think the Democrats have all the bases covered!

;^)

In an effort to combat winter heating oil prices, President Obama has decided to condemn the USA to the fiery pits of hell.

Hehe - didn’t know TLC had anything on but I’m kinda surprised since they often seem to be like PBS.

The unholy trinity has not manifested yet.

But as you said, the uber-liberals have .... aye carumba

I wonder what time zone the end of the world will start in.

Will it be Greenwich mean time, or Japan Standard Time?

And if it starts at midnight in one timezone, does that mean that the guys in the timezone just west of them have 23 more hours to wait before it hits them, too? And what happens if those right on te border with the affected timezone decide to visit?

:-P
