The calamities of 2012

    In December of 2012, what do you think will truly happen to the earth as we know it?  Let's deeply debate this for a moment, because in all honesty, no one truly knows.  Could it be a meteor, an enlightenment, tsunamis, earthquakes, a second coming?  What is the true meaning behind those Mayan prophecies?  What do you think?

      You are looking for deep debate about nothing. That is probably just what you will get.

        Well I'm not necessarily looking for a debate on nothing, mores on individual knowledge of ancient history that is continually being dug up and presented at scientific community seminars.  Also, religious debate is welcome, I don't feel as though people should be shot down for believing in nothing or something on that day or period.

      We will probably see mass hysteria from those who believe in calamities based on ancient prophecies.

        It is true, there has been recent selling of homes and the such from people expecting to have to resettle elsewhere from fear of planetary upheaval.  No one truly knows whateill happen, therefore it is logical to fear the unknown, it's simply human nature.

          I know plenty of humans that just laugh at such things, which is far more logical than being afraid.

            Very true indeed, some will laugh, some will run, some will stand up and fight.  Whatever happens, whether catastrophic, political, or simply nothing...I guess the fact the we all entertain the idea by responding means there is that simple emotion of understanding or reacting to it.

            Laughing is never logical unless what you are laughing at is funny.

      I'm thinking that my hubs dedicated to 2012 (Is it real, How to survive etc.) will get lotsa traffic and make me a few dollars just in time for Chrismtas!

        Ever the optimist, Simey.  Good thought.  I like it.

          I love the optimism as well

    Isn't there already enough paranoia in the world. I mean seriously. There's no deep debate about it.

    I would have to agree with Cagsil on this one.  As you point out in your forum posting, "no one truly knows"  ...as such...I'm not entirely sure what we would be debating other then...IF it would happen...not HOW.  The notion of the IF debate, however, is such...that we won't find out until a year from now?  The thought of a year long forum thread is debilitating.

    I think it just signals the end of a 26,000 year cycle that moves the heavens from Pisces alignment to Aquarius, but don't beleive much will change. Maybe a few tides will ebb and flow differetly and change a few shorelines over the next cycle but nothing major like WHAMMO on a single day or all of a sudden. Some say a polar shift which will cause massive earthquakes but if so I think it would be a minimal shift and minor plate shifting. Minor on a planet scale. I think the Mayans would just let the gear start a new revolution from the first prong again.

      I like that you placed the cycles in there.  A friend of mine has a masters in time keeping and Mayan/Aztec history.  That was what he had stated as well.

      I did read somewhere that the axis shift will be extremely small but will still cause some significant movement of water and ground.  What comes from that I guess will depend on where the shake up occurs.

      Allegedly, this is the same time frame in which the French will test their theory concerning the Big Bang.

      I doesn't hurt to have extra water, canned food, and a first aid kit on hand.

      The earth's crust is no more or less stable than it has been for millenia.

    Baker Rambles. If you would like a better theory about what is going to happen on 12/21/12, go ahead and watch this video about Time Wave Zeroing Out.

    A summary of the video is that time will be reaching its limit. Limit is a mathematical term used in introductory calculus. I have studied calculus, multivariable calculus and differential equations.

    What he discusses here is interesting, but he does not explain how he developed his equation, he also does not provide his mathematical equation.

    A deep debate this could be indeed. However you are unlikely to find an opinion on the side that actually believes in such events, so really it won't be much of a debate.

    But, it is sure to make for some good television. All those believers scurrying away to their bomb shelters...
