Skip to comments.Mayan apocalypse: panic spreads as December 21 nears
Posted on 12/07/2012 7:10:55 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Ahead of December 21, which marks the conclusion of the 5,125-year "Long Count" Mayan calendar, panic buying of candles and essentials has been reported in China and Russia, along with an explosion in sales of survival shelters in America. In France believers were preparing to converge on a mountain where they believe aliens will rescue them.
The precise manner of Armageddon remains vague, ranging from a catastrophic celestial collision between Earth and the mythical planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, a disastrous crash with a comet, or the annihilation of civilisation by a giant solar storm.
In America Ron Hubbard, a manufacturer of hi-tech underground survival shelters, has seen his business explode.
"We've gone from one a month to one a day," he said. "I don't have an opinion on the Mayan calendar but, when astrophysicists come to me, buy my shelters and tell me to be prepared for solar flares, radiation, EMPs (electromagnetic pulses) ... I'm going underground on the 19th and coming out on the 23rd. It's just in case anybody's right."(continued)

My FReeper birthday
I’m a FReeper of the epoxy clips.
The Mayan Calendar does not have an ending
I’ll be on a ship in the middle of the Caribbean..
I guess the Bermuda Triangle might be a danger...
other than that...
Do the Mayans know about this ???
This is good news!
Usually, the stupid people don’t suffer any consequences for their stupidity!
No one can possibly know what will happen. There is significance in an end of a culture’s calendar, however.
My calendar ends on December 31st.
My daughter’s birthhday. She’s put up with this nonsense for the past fsw years and she’s pretty sick of it.
I’m putting my money on some kind of Obama-caused s_ _ _ storm.
I just think those Mayans or whoever just ran out of room on that calender of theirs. Then too, this 2012 year thing? Different groups figure different times from the birth of Yashua. Who's to say who is correct? I say just party on.
I am not panicked about the Mayan Calendar thing. I am more worried about what my wife is doing with her credit card and what the simpletons in Washington are doing with the public’s credit card.
The apocalypse will be fully realized when I get the post Christmas bill and when the people of the US realize that their credit card is maxed out.
even crazy Wikipedia has debunked it.
There is no ending to the Calendar...
as a matter of fact....
1 Alautun is 63,081,429 YEARS
It hasn’t been needed yet though.
I have way to many things to worry about to be concerned about the end of the world.
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
No reason to panic. If you live everyday as if the return of Jesus is imminent, you have no reason to either panic or fear.
If your life doesn’t reflect a daily anticipation of the return of Jesus, then get right with G_d and fear no more.
With the impending American financial apocalypse, Novosibirsk is looking more and more like a not so bad idea. Who knows? My navy pension might go a long ways!
No more panic.
The Mayans missed it by 45 days or so.
...but the time_t apocalypse is a reality in 2038. I'll be long dead by then so I'm not real worried about any of my applications going back to The Epoch on 32-bit platforms. :-)
And we silly “yanks” are still worrying about Barry Benghazi’s “cliff”. LOL!
45 days which way? I admit I haven’t kept up with this thing.
What’s Mayan is urine.
My own determination was a Nov 6-7 conclusion.
Didn’t military and veterans pensions, benefits and disability pay get cancelled a couple of days ago? I thought I read something somewhere...
I dunno. The thought of spending eternity with a bunch of sanctimonious born-agains doesn't really sound too appealing. Maybe Hell in a smoky bar with like-minded sinners might be more fun.
Um, no. Where did you read such nonsense?
THE CONVERSION OF PRESIDENT ANDREW JACKSON
If the world is gonna end, I wanna see if we have a choice in how to go!
Man, we need a 122112 party on FR!
I am dreading the report of the mass suicide some charismatic leader will convince his followers to commit. Sigh.
“I am dreading the report of the mass suicide some charismatic leader will convince his followers to commit.”
I nominate.....hmmm, hmmmm, hmmm.
I have two fellow employees who believe 12/21/2012 will be the start of a new, improved humanity.
Google December 21, 2012 retreat - you will get a kick out of it. Do you want to spend the day with dolphins, at Machu Picchu, Hawaii?
I’d be improved, for sure, if I was in Hawaii - LOL.
This is just one more thing to get a panic started. If “Planet X” were that close; we would have already been seeing it with the naked eye a decade ago. Our calendar ends Dec. 31 every year; the Mayans just hadn’t got a new calendar produced. Besides, I’m not too thrilled about the Mayans. - The planets aren’t slated to align; that’s just an untruth. - Now, we may have more hurricanes and earthquakes. - Trust in the Lord. Go to bed and go to sleep in peace.
Oh, come on, let’s get it over with already. I’m sick of where things are heading anyway...
Look at the bright side...it falls on a Friday!
If you didn't post we could imagine that your lips are sealed and you are therefore...
wait for it...

I'll be here all week, try the veal...
from a catastrophic celestial collision between Earth and the mythical planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X................................................OMG, Its Plan 9, You see? You see? Your stupid minds, stupid, stupid.
If we can steer past this Nibiru thing, everything will work out great, except for the Middle East, the economy, gay marriage and such.
What’s going on?
Nothing is going on. No need to worry!
Oct 31, 2012 Hurricane Sandy

Dec 3, 2012 Plants Align with Giza Pyramids. 1st time in 2737 years.
Dec 4, 2012 Category 5 Typhoon hits Philippines. Kills more than 500.

Dec 13,14 2012 Geminds meteor shower peaks.
Dec ?? 2012 Unknown
Who in their right mind would want to rescue the French?
Ever thought that calendar maker may have run of stone?

We are not all smug and sanctimonious. :)
I reserve the right to contemplate that the Mayans may have been TOLD (by time travelers) when civilization would end, so they built their calendar accordingly. Consider, why would they go all the way out to 2012? There was purpose in them doing that, no?
Why pay any mind to anything coming from an extinct culture?
Did the Mayans predict Cortez? The wheel? The horse?
I’m a lot more worried about Obama ending our way of life as we know it.
...and I feel fine.
