    Superstitious Russians Spent 30 Billion On Preparing For Apocalypse Politics / RussiaDec 27, 2012 - 11:52 AM By: Pravda The Russians, who shared the horror of impending apocalypse with the rest of the world, spent 30 billion rubles on the eve of December 21st. The calculations were made by FBK analysts, who examined the data on the structure of trade turnover and services purchased in December. The end of the world did not come, but many people have to deal with its consequences now - the shortage of money. The hype around the "end of the world" still goes on....

    Well....before the world ends today, how about some silliness.... Have you looked closely to the date 12-21-12 mathematically? I have. I am not a mathematician or a numerologist. I did find something interesting looking at the date written out as 12-21-12. Maybe you noticed it also. However, let's take a closer look at 12-21-12. written this way. OK. First, let's take a look at the date; 12-21-12. The number 21 is book-ended by the number 12 on each side. Second, look at the number 21. What do you see? That is right. It is the reverse or flipped side of...

    Government Issues Statement Debunking End of the World: “Just Rumors” Mac Slavo December 4th, 2012 With the purported 2012 Mayan Apocalypse calculated to take place on December 21st rapidly approaching, thousands of letters have poured into government agencies like NASA from citizens concerned about the end of the world. Doomsday fears surrounding the end of the Mayan calendar, a possible collision with a mystery “Planet X” theorized by some researchers, and pole shift popularized in the Hollywood movie 2012, have forced the government to issue a rebuttal debunking the claims at their USA.gov web site: Scary Rumors about the World...

    Will the world really end in 2012? Is the ancient Maya prophecy true? What exactly is supposed to occur on December 21, 2012? Does the Maya calendar really predict a cataclysmic event on that date? People are talking about it, books have been written about it, and some folks — believing it — have contemplated taking drastic measures with their own lives and families. However, even the purveyors of the hysteria are not in agreement on what it entails. Is it the end of the world, the end of life on earth, or "just" the end of human civilization or...

    No, Family Radio/Harold Camping, which has been hearkening the Return of Christ, and the Rapture for several years has not delayed the Big Day, but the Lord has not intended to return at this time. Nor, according to Camping will Armageddon and the Last Judgment occur in October of this year as prophesied. COGWRITER explains fairly well Harold Camping's errors both Biblically and mathematically. It is unfortunate that such a nice group of people at Family Stations Inc, worth over $150,000,000 could be AGAIN hornswoggled by their Pastor-President Harold Camping, who strongly suggested earlier, that 1994 was most possibly THE...

    Do an experiment for me. Take a balloon, inflate it. Get two books and place one on each side of the balloon opposite each other. Now deflate the balloon and notice what happens to the books. The books shift towards each other. The massive pressurized oil and methane reserve now blowing out south of the Louisiana coast is just like a the deflating balloon. As this reserve empties a huge cavern is being created under the gulf floor. Usually these caverns are back filled with seawater as the oil is removed to stop a catastrophic collapse and make extracting the...

    COPENHAGEN — Interior Secretary Ken Salazar joined the Obama administration’s charm offensive in Copenhagen on Thursday — and took some shots at the Bush administration in the process. “As much as the world awoke to the dangers of climate change, the political leadership of the United States simply slept,” Salazar said in a briefing at the U.S. center here. “Confronting the impact of climate change was simply not a priority.” He said things have changed since the election of Barack Obama. “I’m here in today in Copenhagen on behalf of President Obama to deliver a simple message: The United States...

    METEOR UPDATE: Perseid meteors are now hitting Earth's upper atmosphere with a speed of 58 to 60 km/s, about 130,000 mph. That's the result of triangulation by a dual-station meteor monitoring system operated by NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office. Last night the system detected five fireballs that provided the data for this speed estimate...

    Scientists and former astronauts this weekend called upon the United Nations to protect Earth from cataclysmic asteroid strikes. Delegates at an American Association for the Advancement of Science conference in San Francisco this weekend learned an asteroid strike is an absolute certainty unless the international community rallies to prevent it. "The likelihood of a strike is 100%," said Russell Schweickart, a former astronaut who went into orbit in 1969 as a member of the Apollo 9 crew. "The question is whether it will happen within my lifetime or your lifetime."

    SAN FRANCISCO (Feb. 18) - An asteroid may come uncomfortably close to Earth in 2036 and the United Nations should assume responsibility for a space mission to deflect it, a group of astronauts, engineers and scientists said on Saturday. Astronomers are monitoring an asteroid named Apophis, which has a 1 in 45,000 chance of striking Earth on April 13, 2036. Although the odds of an impact by this particular asteroid are low, a recent congressional mandate for NASA to upgrade its tracking of near-Earth asteroids is expected to uncover hundreds, if not thousands of threatening space rocks in the near...

    If demography is destiny, then news of America's decline is (like Mark Twain's death) decidedly premature. Statisticians tell us Oct. 17 (at 7:46 a.m. EDT, according to the Census Bureau's estimate) was the day America's population reached, then surpassed, 300 million people. That's a three followed by eight zeroes. Unfortunately, Oct. 17 was Halloween with an extra "Boo" (B with two zeroes) for various "greens" and ecological radicals mired in Malthusian desperation and myths of looming disaster. For decades, the doomsayers have been predicting catastrophe wrought by the "population explosion" and diminishing resources. Author and columnist Mark Steyn notes in...

    According to a self-appointed prophet in the holy city of Abilene, Texas, the Great Tribulation begins today. Sorry folks but nuclear war will start today according to Buffalo Bill Hawkins and his devoted followers--all surnamed Hawkins--at the House of Yahweh. Apparently God (excuse me Yahweh and Yeshua) agree with Osama Bin Laden and Iran's President. And though the USA may try as it might to be the shining light upon the hill, the best nation on earth due to its constitutional freedoms, it's too little too late! God is really angry with us, and HE means to prove it this...

Here's an interesting link to a negative economic assesment from respected Swiss economist Dr. Marc Faber ("Dr. Doom").

John Gilmore had run the East Tennessee operations for phone, cable, and internet company Knology. He'd predicted five big cities in the US would face economic collapse. He now says he has no hard feelings toward knology, and understands why it let him go. "In the end I view it as a resignation. I feel God is calling me to do other things.

    TORONTO (CP) - An outbreak of deadly avian flu in Vietnam which may have killed as many as 12 people could be the precursor to an influenza pandemic, experts admitted Tuesday. "The ingredients are there that the pandemic can occur," Klaus Stohr, project leader of the World Health Organization's global influenza program, said in an interview from Geneva. "We can hope for the best but we are preparing for the worst." Public health authorities have been predicting for some time that the world is overdue for a new pandemic, which would sweep the globe, killing millions and causing far-reaching social...

    <p>SEATTLE, Jan. 13 (AScribe Newswire) -- In its 4.5 billion years, Earth has evolved from its hot, violent birth to the celebrated watery blue planet that stands out in pictures from space. But in a new book, two noted University of Washington astrobiologists say the planet already has begun the long process of devolving into a burned-out cinder, eventually to be swallowed by the sun.</p>
