Well, we are 5 days away from the long awaited 12-21-2012 . I am wondering what all your thoughts may be. Do you think anything will happen,or will it be just another day.? My wife is very much in to astrology and she believes that the planet will start re-aligning the poles and possibly shifting on its axis. When you give it some thought, it is the first time in recorded history that all the planets and the milky way have aligned like this. Nobody , and I mean nobody can really say what may happen. Lots of speculation, and nothing else. Keep in mind even Nasa has advised there people to be prepared with food and other things for this unknown event.

Think about, what will happen should the poles shift and not just magnetically either. But actually shift land mass wise. Think about the ocean's moving and damn quick at that. Will you be one of the ones should it happen that survive it ? Ok, no joking around here, really think about it for a few minutes or so.

I sure most understand they never predicted the end of the world. Even if they did they would have been wrong. Bunch of College nuts cases get this stuff going then it takes on a life all it's own.
It will be just another day. A distraction from the real problems we face that are in front of us everyday that we do need to prepare for.

If the Mayans were any good at astrology and stuff, they'd have said "No need to waste our time drawing up a calendar all the way to 2012, the conquistadores are going to kick our butts out of existence long before 2012"..

PS- If the world really does end on the 21st Jesus is going to be left very redfaced seeing as he said nobody knows when the end of the world will be, not even himself, and that only God knows..;)

The Mayans did not say it was the end of the world. They said this was end of a cycle. People have said the Mayan calender did not factor in this or that. They had the most accurate calender ever. Today's computer has not been able to match their accuracy. That being said, nadja is correct in that a planetary alignment like this has not happened before. What will happen? Who knows. Others have said other planetary alignments would reek havoc. It didn't happen.

Whatever will happen will happen no matter what we do. There will probably be wacko's who try to take advantage of this. Some tried it during y2k. I will be a little more vigilant but won't be hiding under my bed. It is another work day for me.

I myself don't think it is the end of the world, however, my wife and I both believe it is going to be the start of something big. It could be anything, but judging from the way things are happening here in the U.S.A. it could just be the total melt down of the human minds. It seems to be goning on already. Shootings, free everything if you vote for me type things. Kids still living in the mommies house so they don't even have to think about looking for a job and taking responsiblity for their own little pathetic lives. Doesn't look to good when you really take a look at " modern socity" does it. ?

Watched a show the other day on Nat Geo or Discovery, can't remember which. Anyway, archeologists found a Mayan calendar that extended far past 12-21-12. Also, it seems Americans are the only ones who have sensationalized this end times prophecy. They Mayan decedents don't believe the world is going to end. To them, and the rest of the world it's just the beginning of a new era. If there were going to be major changes to our planet, such as polar shift due to a cosmic alignment, I'm sure we would have been seeing warning signs already. To me, it will just be another day. And also the day that I finish my Christmas shopping. But I do fear some "wacko" might take advantage of the date to do something horrific. But I pray not.

What will happen? Hopefully I go on leave, and enjoy two weeks away from the Army. Do I honestly expect something to happen? Not really, but like I said in a previous thread, I'm not planning on taking any chances either. My BOB is in my Jeep, I've got a primary (driving route) planned out, and a secondary (walking route) in case there really is an EMP that shuts down all vehicles. Either way, I guess we'll find out at about 0512 Central Standard time (1112 UTC) Friday morning.

December 21st is really just a nice way to test your preparedness. Stop, and seriously take a look at what you have now, and consider that that is all you might have to survive. For some, they might like what they see. Others will find themselves totally unprepared. For myself, I'm (almost) happy with the guns and ammo supplies, but disappointed with food reserves. Guess I'll have to spend my 2013 fixing that!

Im a Nat geo buff myself and from some recent interviews they are in the same live and let live mentality they have been since there civilization crumbled. They understand there calendar is cyclical and as was put into English "if it is the end of the world it is too hot here too think about". They are going about daily life as if it will not end. Reason being they cannot change anything if it was our future to face cataclysm. But just understanding that the Myan calendar is cyclical should give the average intelligent person insight that it is not the end but yet another beginning. How that transition occurs is what I think the Mayans mean by there calendar. That it can be trying times and that humanity should look upon itself and to the stars for answers in order to properly start a new cycle. To understand the end of the calendar one must also understand the inner parts of there calendar as well. It is an interesting way to associate time with humanity and mother nature.

Think about it if it was the end of the world do you think what is left of the Mayans would turn on each other like rabid dogs or would they try to survive and rebuild with what was left to them. Different culture with a different mindset on these things.

I don't think this part of there calendar is misleading in any way.

TrainerShawn has a point. It isn't as if the influences would not be noticed all on 21 December. Wouldn't you think there'd be some pretty good quakes or something happening? I don't imagine the magnetic field would remain stable until a particular second. I would think our fleet of aircraft would be so busy at compass rose that the students would never get any flight time elsewhere (I work at Ft. Rucker, where the army trains its rotorwing aviators.

I expect to wake up that Friday, turn on the computer and read about more human stupidity and more government snatching of liberty.

Interesting, Huey pilot Bob Mason ("Chickenhawk") said to me in an e-mail interview last year how worrying about anything was pointless in Nam-
"Cpt Morris, for example, was a nervous wreck about the tight formation flying, the night formation flying, the refueling chaos, etc. And he died of a bullet in the heart. It didn't matter. Certainly that was a demonstration to us that it didn't matter how cool or how stressed you were taking all this shit, bullets are the great equalizers."

Yes Denton. That is exactly what a Galactic Equinox is. It is our solar system transiting our galaxies Black Hole center of gravitation pull. We are transiting from above the apex of gravitation to below the apex of gravitation. Know knows where or when that apex and it is rather unimportant as it is the transit of this region that is of any concern. However the apex crossing may be dramatic no one exactly where that is just that are we in the transit zone for the past few years and years to come.

It might be as minor as our toilets start flushing the opposite direction or as severe as the doomsayers are saying. I do believe we will feel and have been feeling the effects of this in our climate and weather. The future is unknown on this one however as no culture is left to tell us what happened the last time this happened.

Actually here in TX we have been hit with a number of small earthquakes recently. The last one was not that far from where I live. This is a first as far as I know. I have been in TX for over 30yrs and don't remember anything close to this.

Yeah, I take note of the increased activity, both volcanic and shaking, around the world. One of the things I look at when I hit the news sources each day. I just figured we'd be seeing more than what we are.

Stop trying to make me nervous! :grin:
