I don’t believe in all the 2012 prophecies. But I am wondering what happenings we’ll see as a result of people believing in them and getting carried away?
Do you think people will take all this stuff seriously? There’s the whole Mayan thing, Charles Manson coming up for parole, planet Nibiru, Novelty (Timewave) Theory, Peak Oil, and the list goes on and on…
Here’s a list of predicted events found at Wikipedia under the article titled “2012”:
Metaphysical predictions
2012 is sometimes claimed to be a great year of spiritual transformation (or apocalypse). Many esoteric sources interpret the completion of the thirteenth B’ak’tun cycle in the Long Count of the Maya calendar (which occurs on December 21 by the most widely held correlation) to mean there will be a major change in world order.
Accordingly, several eclectic authors claim that a major, world-changing event will take place in 2012:
* The 1995 book The Mayan Prophecies linked the Maya calendar with long-period sunspot cycles.
* The book 2012: Mayan Year of Destiny claims the Maya may have been instructed in their wisdom by disembodied entities from Orion and the Pleiades. Contact was maintained through shamanic rituals conducted in accordance with the movements of planets and stars. However, some Mayan priests living and working in Guatemala assert that there is no legitimacy to this theory.
* The 1997 book The Bible Code claims that, according to certain algorithms of the Bible code, a meteor, asteroid or comet will collide with the Earth.
* The book The Nostradamus Code speaks of a series of natural disasters caused by a comet (possibly as above) that will allow the third Antichrist to disperse his troops around the globe under the guise of aid in preparation for a possible nuclear war, although in the strictest sense it is unspecific as to nuclear war or some other natural or man caused destruction.
* The book The Orion Prophecy claims that the Earth’s magnetic field will reverse.
* The 2005 book Beyond 2012: Catastrophe or Ecstasy by Geoff Stray reviews several theories, prophecies and predictions concerning 2012 and finds where authors have used faulty information or have bent the truth to fit their theories.
* The 2006 book 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl by Daniel Pinchbeck discusses theories of a possible global awakening to psychic connection by the year 2012, creating a noosphere.
* The 2007 book Apocalypse 2012: A Scientific Investigation into Civilization’s End by Lawrence Joseph does not make any specific new predictions, but it reviews a number of 2012 predictions made by various sources, and presents arguments for the possible existence of dangerous positive feedback loops involving solar storms, Earth’s magnetic field, cosmic rays, hurricanes, global warming, earthquakes, and supervolcanoes that may be on the verge of erupting.
Other prophecies and apocalyptic writings and hypotheses for this year include:
* Terence McKenna’s numerological novelty theory suggests a point of singularity in which humankind will go through a great shift in consciousness.
* Some proponents of a peak oil catastrophe place major events in 2012. Richard C. Duncan’s book The Peak of World Oil Production and the Road To The Olduvai Gorge claims that the Olduvai cliff will begin and permanent blackouts will occur worldwide. Several studies predict a peak in oil production in or around 2012
What do you think of it all? Will people take it seriously and make crazy things happen?
JUST TO BE CRYSTAL CLEAR HERE… I don’t believe any of this stuff. But what I am wondering is whether or not we will see a lot of strange activity as a result of people believing.
Will the fact that many do believe be the cause of some unusual events, such as violence, insurrection, economic problems, and other forms of strife??

  1. I dont think it will happen, they had soo many predictions before, and none of them have come true, in the bible, it said you will not know when the end of the world will takw place, that only God knows when it is going to happen.

  2. Only God knows the beginning of the end. Jesus Christ, nor God’s angels, have no knowledge of the end times.
    “Take heed lest any man deceive you: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.”~Jesus Christ

  3. My local weatherman can’t even predict when we get snow vs rain correctly during the winter, so I highly doubt any any of these prophecies will come to pass. Like I say about the weather forecasts in Ohio, I’ll believe it when I see it. I wouldn’t put it past a few crazies to do stupid stuff in anticipation of the end, though. Wasn’t there a group a few years back that, in anticipation of the Rapture, jumped off a barn roof thinking they’d be lifted to Heaven. And what a surprise, they fell to the ground.
