If these earthquakes are the beginning of the endtimes...
    #3557343 - 12/29/04 02:49 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

The biggest earthquake in 40 years! That's huge, it MUST mean that the world is headed directly into chaos!

But wait... what about the BIGGER earthquake 40 years ago?

Yeah, but that one didn't happen within eight years of the end of the Mayan calendar, so it doesn't count.

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

On any given day, during any hour, it is the end times for some. Welcome to life, with it comes the inevitability of death.

didnt jesus say that no man could predict the second coming or something like that, and when apocolypse came no one would expect it?

Who's trying to predict the end of the world??? That was a nice link to your own post...the same one c & p'ed above. Now how about just reading up on the significance of the Mayan calender cuz you really are missing the point.

In 2012, I predict Arnold The Terminator will be President of the United States.  The constitution will be amended to allow foreigners to become president.  Or, martial law could be in effect by then and instead of elections it will be an appointment.

Judgement Day and The Terminator, it all fits.  :smirk:

The point is, the activities of men will lead to our destruction long before natural phenomenon.

I can't wait till it's 2013 and everyone has to come up with a new pet theory.


Hey I just had an idea.  In honor of the Swami $10,000 challenge, I'll offer a $10,000 challenge as well.  I should be able to save that much by 2012 :P heh.

If the world ends, I lose the bet.
If the world does not end, I win the bet.
Any takers?  :blush:

I'm pretty sure, the end of the calendar does not mean the end of the world.
The calander basically starts over, like any other calander.

The End.

Peace,

I think we humans just like to get into the habbit of assuming that, because we come to an End in under a hundred years, nothing can really last TOO long!.

While it is true that everything which has a beginning has an end...it certainly isn't true that everything is as short-lived as we humans.

If the world "ends", it will just be us humans who get the shit can. The Earth will exist for another 4-5 billion years.

"nothing can really last too long"

And in our disposable society, nothing does!

The scary thing is the pace of change keeps accelerating. Faster and faster. Can humans keep up?

There's no such thing as the end of time..

It's just natural that the Earth is going to cleanse itself
Look at the weather patterns.

You mean, there haven't been dozens of natural disasters all over the world, ever year, for as long as history has recorded?

Because I'm pretty sure there has.
