Different mindset - says it all.

It could very well be the end of the world as we know it. Sky high energy costs may just doom the western world.



"Both the Hopis and Mayans recognize that we are approaching the end of a World Age... In both cases, however, the Hopi and Mayan elders do not prophesy that everything will come to an end. Rather, this is a time of transition from one World Age into another. The message they give concerns our making a choice of how we enter the future ahead. Our moving through with either resistance or acceptance will determine whether the transition will happen with cataclysmic changes or gradual peace and tranquility. The same theme can be found reflected in the prophecies of many other Native American visionaries from Black Elk to Sun Bear."
— Joseph Robert Jochmans

As with all prophesy, there is the problem of timekeeping.

THE GREGORIAN CALENDAR AND THE MAYAN CALENDAR

Gregorian / Mayan

1991 = 2000

1992 = 2001

1993 = 2002

1994 = 2003

1995 = 2004

1996 = 2005

1997 = 2006

1998 = 2007

1999 = 2008

2000 = 2009

2001 = 2010

2002 = 2011

2003 = 2012

(This list came from http://www.angelfire.com/music2/fullcircle/PropheciesStudy.html )

So that gives the fear-mongers 8 years to further hype a problem that was solved 8 years AGO.


RingMaster already answered from Scripture. For those interested enough to give Scripture weight in the argument; when it is said out right like that - and by that authority - only nuts would attempt to work out a different answer.

The bible specifically refuses to answer that question.
Matt 24:36
Mark 13:21
Tell that to the next false (for) profit you meet.

Re=elect Nobama, thatll be the end of OUR world !!....lol
Do you remember the whole Y2K thing??!! It made computer people gazillionaires, drove utility executives crazy, and scared the crap out of those who listened to all of the hype. I saw people duking it out over bottled water at a grocery store the night before.

MASS HYSTERIA --- FEAR -- That's how our governments keep us all in check...... Afterall, they think that we are nothing but sheeple!

The gaff is to find out what people will buy to SAVE THEMSELVES! and make a killing selling it!

P.S. If you figure it out though! Remember the little people..... baahhhh ;-)

Ridiculous update, Re: Technology

Now it looks like we'll be wasting money on a Near Earth Objects Shield. But notice the EU will be spending less than $5,000,000.00 on the project. How's that for a hint they don't believe in the effort or take it seriously. at. all.? Who carries the rest of the burden to fund it? Guess. Ha ha.

Fear driven economic plan.
Want to benefit from it? Sell freeze-dried food packages, insurance seeds, or MRE's and bunkers.

I don't believe 2012 will be the last year the Earth is here. The chatter will get louder and more intense until January 2013. I'm saddened by the misinterpretation of the Mayan Calendar - according to Mayans and Mayan Culture experts. All the end of that calendar means is another 5,126 year period begins. (http://news.discovery.com/space/the-2012-mayan-calendar-doomsday-date-might-be-wrong.html)

I don't believe mankind can destroy the entire Earth - the planet heals itself (rather quickly) when left alone.

I don't believe there will ever be a nuclear war.
If a nuclear weapon ever detonates again the result will be minimal in the big scheme of things.

Those who live where water is scarce, should move. Or get these:

Those who live where food is hard to come by, should move. (And STOP having children, until they are where they can support them - it's cruel.)

Where social unrest persists, people should build a just reputation of protecting themselves, their families, and their property with deadly force.

If a cosmic catastrophe is on its way, there's NOTHING to be done about it. We don't have the technology.

Life is a death sentence, a degenerative disease NOBODY has ever beat. Enjoy what you've got today cause tomorrow may never come... :)

On the other hand, I've watched the Hoods Woods videos from www.survival.com  and learned about survival techniques for 30 years. I've watched the great documentary about Dick Proenneke (http://www.aloneinthewilderness.com/) a few times and dreamed of doing the same thing. I've got a few Bug-Out_Bags and caches in case things do go sideways.

You've got 72 hours after the water is turned off or the electricity doesn't work before society starts to break down. 3 days and people start to lose their minds! Amazing.

Once you're prepared, all the chatter in the world doesn't raise your blood pressure.

I really am annoyed that the life expectancy number keeps rising though. 300 years ago people were lucky to hit 50 and to reach 70 was a miracle. Why old, broken down folks who don't contribute and who are either drugged to oblivion or in pain constantly want to lengthen their lives doesn't make much sense to me. Enjoy yourself and others and have as much adventure as you can - and then do the mature thing, curl up and leave yer troubles behind... 🙂

...Wish I could say these things in public, but I'd probably annoy someone. That's okay - offense is always taken, never given. Religiously minded or not Ecclesiastes 7:9 is right and logical.
