Dec 21st is the foretold apocolypse/doomsday. Severaly different calenders that hav been predicting the earth for billions of years are abruptly ending on dec21st 2012. The planets are due to align which only happens once every certain amount of years, and its supposed to happepen specifically on dec 21st. Cultures under the influence of hallucinogenic drugs have also foretold the same thing. What is going to happen is beyond any science hypothesis, but science is sayin that more and more DMT will be released in our brain as we near 2012. They say it will be either a huge change in humanity or it is the end of the world as we know it, or its a refresh of the world. Too much shit hits the fan and u have to clean it off right..... think about that int he world perspective. there prophecies have also foretold war happening clsoe tot he date of the apocolypse....

Which calendars have been around for billions of years and how did they exist without humans to create them?
Which planets will align and how will that effect us?
Where and when did 'science' claim that more DMT will be released in our brain as we near 2012?
There are several ongoing wars in motion right now, as it has been for centuries and millenia. What will be the significance of the war(s) in 2012? Who has foretold these wars?

This is not true.  A quick check via google search can show this in a minute or two.



Quote:

What cultures?  You talking about the Mayans again?



Quote:

Also not true.  Seriosly, where do you people come up with this stuff?




Im gonna use this quote for the second time today...
"The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie - deliberate, contrived, and dishonest - but the myth - persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic."

-John F. Kennedy

“Strengthened by contemplation and study,
I will not fear my passions like a coward.
My body I will give to pleasures,
to diversions that I’ve dreamed of,
to the most daring erotic desires,
to the lustful impulses of my blood, without
any fear at all, for whenever I will—
and I will have the will, strengthened
as I’ll be with contemplation and study—
at the crucial moments I’ll recover
my spirit as was before: ascetic.”

Such
as the ancients knowledge of the universe and star systems.
For example, the Dogon tribe in africa, whos mythologies describe the location of Sirius B, which is only visible by telescope.

Interesting, but thats not more advanced.  Thats the same, or less.

And a quick google search shows that it is a false myth that they knew this anyway.  A myth started by some french archeologists and perpetuated by those they contacted.  Members of the Dogon tribe who never interacted with the french archeologists have no story at all of the 50 year orbit of Sirius B.

Ancient civilizations were not more advanced than we are, technologically.  This may have been so 500 years ago, but not now.  We have caught up to and surpassed the ancients.
