Neil Degrasse Tyson debunks 2012   We understand that there may be a few malingerers still digging their fallout bunkers in anticipation of the End Of The World which has been rescheduled for 2012. For that reason, here is a video snippet of astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson talking to attendees at the 2010 World Science Festival about where he stands on the issue and why we might want to stand in the same spot (YouTube) derrenbrown.co.uk (site accessed June 2010)

The Mayan Calendar and the 2012 Doomsday   " ... My memory goes back millions of years, before the formation of the Asteroid belt. Of course, like your own childhood memories, the far reaches of my memory that I can access are very fragmentary but, with research in the VR archives of the Mental Internet or the Akashik records or the ‘Great Unconscious’, I am constantly improving and expanding it. The first thing that I would like to stress is that doomsday writers and moviemakers are reading too much into the Mayan calendar ..." Book no. 24, jesusdzeus.com (site accessed May 2010)

2012: Cataclysmic breakdown or Y2K makeover?   " ... This Examiner.com series examines objective, empirical evidence for cataclysm on Earth in 2012.

The 2012 phenomenon: New Age appropriation of an ancient Mayan calendar   "According to the ancient Mayan Long Count calendar, a cycle of more than 5,000 years will come to fruition on the winter solstice of 2012. While this date is largely unknown among contemporary Maya, some participants in the New Age movement believe it will mark an apocalyptic global transformation. Hundreds of books and Internet sites speculate wildly about the 2012 date, but little of this conjecture has a factual basis in Mayan culture. This paper provides an overview of the primary currents in the 2012 phenomenon, examines their sources, and speculates about developments as this highly anticipated date approaches."

Prognosis 2012: Towards a new world social order   " ... In our post-2012 world, we have for the first time one centralized global government, and one ruling elite clique, a kind of extended royal family, the lords of finance. As we can see with the IMF, WHO, and the WTO, and the other pieces of the embryonic world government, the institutions of governance will make no pretensions about popular representation or democratic responsiveness. Rule will be by means of autocratic global bureaucracies, who take their marching orders from the royal family. This model has already been operating for some time, within its various spheres of influence, as with the restructuring programs forced on the third world, as a condition for getting financing ..."

The secret earth code 2012   " ... If 2012 is a number denoting a year -- that means time -- 20 and 12 would relate to time as well. Here is the particular example: Consider last two major earthquakes where 50,000 or more people have been killed. The first and unfortunately the nearly present disaster struck Haiti where the number of victims is hardly less than 50,000, and the second major earthquake took place in 2008 in China. Now, what else these two earthquakes have in common? Time-wise, they both occurred on the 12th day of the month. And that takes care of the second number in the catastrophic year 20-12. But how to utilize the first number 20 the way that even primitive species like us would be able to spot the signal of non-randomness? ..." (site accessed Jan 2010)

2012 AD: The End Of Earth, Humanity, And Internet Dating; The Death Of Mr. Kim Peek, And Lunch With The Tohono O’odham Indian Nation On Kit Peak   " ... In the case of the Mayan calendar, yeah: I think something happens. I don’t think the god or the aliens fly down from the skies trailing clouds of glory—but something happens. Something will happen. So, be ready. Climb up to the Kit Peak National Observatory. It’s 6875 feet above sea-level, 56 miles southwest of Tucson, Arizona in the Schuk Toak District of the Native American Tohono O’odham Nation. Pack a lunch and watch the skies. Keep looking. Keep watching the skies. Because it will begin right there. At least—what’s coming will first be noticed there. And in other places like it ..."

Apocalypse Left and Right: A Graphic Primer   The 2012 movie and the politics of the apocalypse in comic-book format ...

The true meaning of 2012 " ... A tsunami is rapidly building on the horizon. Every person on earth is connected like never before, through the Internet and cell phones. Most of us have come to understand that we are perched on a shore that is threatened by a mounting wave of economic and environmental disaster. We have only three years left until December 21, 2012.

Christians should have no reason to be afraid of 2012   " ... Churches will provide helpful resources that expose the hype and counter it with solid, biblical and scientific truth ... One thing is certain: Christians have no need to fear the end of the earth — whenever it happens. If we have received Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior then we will stand before the Supreme Judge of the universe completely forgiven of all sin. In the meantime, our Lord Jesus tells us how to live: "Keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come... Be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him (Matthew 24:42-44)." ..." Todd Linn, courierpress.com (site accessed Dec 09)

My Oh Mayan! 2012 may indeed be the end of the world as we know it  "So it is that on this day of love approximately 30 Santa Feans afflicted with the 2012 bug have come to hear from a speaker who claims first-hand knowledge of Mayan traditions. They sit quietly facing the guest of honor, Lina Barrios, a middle-aged woman from Guatemala who dresses in colorful Mayan garb ...

2012: Fifteen Doomsday prophecies and how they turned out   "Emmerich is prepping his new disaster movie 2012 for release on Friday. This time he's basing his world-smashing destruction on a bunch of theories floating around the blogosphere and the nutosphere that state that the world will end sometime during late 2012, around the time of the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. So, in light of Emmerich's new plot to destroy the world, and with tinfoil hats firmly in place, we thought it'd be worthwhile to look over 15 end-of-the-world prophecies from the past 1800 years or so and see how they turned out.

How to spot a prophet's Maya hoax: thinking outside the box        " ... Most 2012ers are “Westerners” who simply lack the capability to think outside the box.

2012 and the return of the alarmingly gullible   "In terms of climate change, it is not December 2012 we need to worry about, but December this year, when the Copenhagen talks take place. As to when we need to start living in a carbon constrained way, that was about 15 years ago ... There are no cosmic forces that are going to do all this for us, it is down to us. Some arbitrary date on an ancient calendar is not going to magically reduce concentrations of atmospheric CO2, refill the world’s fast depleting oil wells, overcome challenges of water, resource and land scarcity, rebuild genetic and biodiversity, rebuild depleting soils, feed the starving and overcome the very real constraints of a population with expectations of perpetual abundance living on a finite world ..."

Meditating on the Maya Calendar for 2012 (Profile of Jose Arguelles by Marcelo Ballve) " ... Argüelles was popularizing his ideas related to the Maya calendar and 2012 as early as 1975. He doesn't fret about 2012 going viral. "Once it has left your hands it goes into the mass mind, it's really not yours to control any more," he says in a phone interview with New America Media ... Argüelles's vision for 2012 is even more cosmically ambitious. He wants meditators, in both hemispheres, to focus on his idea for a "circumpolar rainbow bridge," which will unite the southern and northern magnetic poles with a visible iridescent celestial effect, much like a massively stretched aurora borealis ... news.newamericamedia.org (site accessed Sep 09)

2012 has become the tweed jacket of doomsday scenarios   " ... doomsday hype is leaking into every facet of reporting, and today I read an Examiner post that is trying desperately hard to get attention. This time, it’s not about crop circles predicting killer solar flares, it’s the LA Science and Tech News Examiner who couldn’t resist dropping in a mention for the Mayan calendar when reporting about the recent Large Hadron Collider (LHC) woes. The report goes into some detail about recent LHC problems, pointing out that the particle accelerator probably won’t be operating at full energy until… wait for it… [cue doomsday alert!] …2012. This triggers another doomsday ‘tweed jacket,’ the nonsensical LHC-induced Earth-eating-black-hole pseudo-science theory popularized by Walter “I need some attention” Wagner after he tried (and failed) to sue CERN for endangering the planet with its scary physics. astroengine.com (site accessed Aug 2009)

Given the fact that’s only six years away perhaps it might be a good time to find out why ..."

And The Crunch Shall Set You Free by Mohammed Sajid
“....I’m here in Sudbury, Ontario at a crater forged in the white heat of a meteorite impact sixty million years ago. It was here that a disparate groups of artists, musicians, philosophers and fringe scientists came together in an unexpected series of events surrounding the epochal events of 2012 to form what became the Crunch Authenticity Institute or the CAI as it’s known...." bubblejam.net (site accessed November 2006)

The 2012 Problem ".... Perhaps 2012 is not about what is 'going to happen' at the end of time … but it's ABOUT the end of time. Our time-consciousness is part of an illusionary structure that has shaped our consensual reality … the reality we all consent to...."

The Reality of Nature " ...Only knowledge that breaks the boundaries of religion and advances science to higher level has the potentials to save humanity from impending destruction, where religions and nations are clashing with the mighty power of matter, calling upon self -destruction and wrath of nature.
This means we are in the most turbulent period of existence where the whole system is trying to initialize into new time cycle. It is time we understand the unity and become conscious. The Gravastar is collapsing; it is time we take control through mass transformation and conversion of negative energy [dark energy] into positive energy of life and order."

What will happen in 2012?   "... My opinion is that, nothing mystical or magical will happen in 2012. The betterment of civilisation and global conditions will be a gradual process, that is driven by realisations, discoveries and transformation of old ways and habits."

The 2012 Predictions: You're Betting Your Life On It   "...if there is any truth to the story, our stance - the most wager we ultimately make - regarding this issue is arguably the most important of our life. As C. S. Lewis, the celebrated author of The Chronicles of Narnia, once said about his decision to embrace religion: 'Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.'

There are several things to take into account before placing your bet. The first is to understand what is meant by "the end of the world." It clearly does not mean the planet will be destroyed, for that would take away all options in a single stroke, and the entire issue would be moot. That's not what the seers of the past were trying so hard to tell us. They were warning us of something entirely different - more like an abrupt shift in the direction of one's life."

December 21, 2012 - are you ready?  "... Scientists who look beyond conventional science point out that that the Hyperspace that contain our Universe is also showing signs that something strange is happening in our universe. The multidimensional time research is showing that a parallel universe may be predicting strange effects."

Predictions of Mayan Calendar Followers? 2012 is just around the corner. "...it does appear that we nearly have the necessary technologies to serve mankind in fixing these issues before 2012, the question really is will we and is the Mayan Calendar even an issue?"
