Christmas musings 2012 (II)

  I don’t believe the world will end on December 21. I’m virtually hundred percent certain that it won’t, and I feel strongly that the very claim that it will is one of the most ridiculous ever stated.
  The Maya calendar theory part of this has long since been thoroughly trashed by many, so I won’t even bother to comment it further
  There are many things aiding me in my total rejection of this shit, but one that is very obvious to me is that most of the probabilities of a disaster rest with the existence of Nibiru, the so called Planet X. While I am convinced that those in charge are hiding a lot from the general population and support several of those claims deemed «conspiracy theories» by general propaganda I feel very confident that quite a few of the thousands of amateur astronomers on Earth would expose such a desperate attempt to hide the truth by now…
  This is also true concerning most of the other obscure astronomical events claimed to be related to this subject.
  Planet X will have to be invisible to stay off humanity’s radar. Hell, it has to be outside our very local dimensional space right now. The bullshit factor in this case is unimaginable high.
  New end of the world dates keep rolling off the assembly line and there don’t seem to be any end to them.

  I’m also rejecting the other part of the December 2012 «prophecy».
  Some people claim that humanity will go through a spiritual transformation on and/or soon after the date in question, one bringing about «a golden age», but there is no sign of this happening, not even with the biggest magnifying glass, not on December 21 or in the foreseeable future. Humanity remains stuck in its own beyond horrible mire and the bullshit factor in this case is just as high as in the other case above. Perhaps there are a few million truly aware people on Earth, perhaps, but that is in no way sufficient to bring about anything even remotely what we’re talking about here.
  The so called New Age movement, a fairly disparate group coming out of the early eighties has some enlightened people, but they can almost be counted on one hand. If you ask me most of them lack even the most basic understanding of reality. The fact that they share such a lack with the vast majority of current humanity doesn't change that.

As you say, we have seen many 'end of the world' dates come and go. And I find it fascinating how many people continue to give them credence. I can only imagine that this shows a widespread unhappiness with where humanity has ended up. That is far more interesting than doomsday prophecies. That and our general inability to change our lives by ourselves.

Agreed. People wish desperately to change their dreary lives, but instead of actually doing that, they keep distracting themselves with obvious fantasies and put all their "hopes" and longings in such.
