The Mayans predicted the end of the world on December 21, 2012. They also were pagan which is absolutely no problem for the USA, as we love football. Their currency was chocolate like Willy Wonka Bars and they believed in human sacrifice. But their calendar is based on astrological events and has been pretty accurate as far as astronomical events.

So are we to believe that the Mayans could predict the end of the world but not their own extinction long before their calendar ran out? What would be the purpose in civilized culture that understood astronomy but failed to conclude it would only be practical to keep a calendar for their existence. I find it one of the world's greatest gifts this Mayan Calendars but many many civilizations are running on different Calendars that are here and among us. There is an argument about when it is.

Do you believe the world is going to end on December 12, 2012?

Lost in The Event

So I am watching the show "The Event" because John Ritter's son Jason is on it and I recognize how much John Ritter and Jason Ritter contributed to the entertainment industry. And the writing all season has been well weak. The plot line inplausible and the scripted well I have fallen a sleep many an evening. I can't help watch that show and think of the show "Lost" which also lacked writers, plausibility and a whole lot more. And I am wondering if in "The Event" the actors are improvisizing without a script? I am wondering if this is yet another social experiment on the viewing television public and then I wondering why I am paying a big cable bill?

Value of Entertainment and Political Ads

Lost was a social experiment in which the writers were the online community. I have a very bad feeling that my support of The Event might also be another social experiment. I liked they mentioned Tibet on The Event but this show is being written for countries outside the USA. It has a very weak opinion of Americans in general. As if the Mayans are returning?

I wouldn't mind the chocolate though.

      This was one of my first hubs published so I didn't really have any followers at this time.

      The Event has been cancelled. And yes, if China is watching this show world pece is possible.

      I like the references to the "first people" so it is the American Indians that are coming to get us which really made this show fun to watch. That and it was a social experiment.

      Yes, I thought it was humorous at the time. :-).

      Thank you for reading, commenting and posting.

      I see you do have a sense of humor, but is the world ready for it? Yet you have gathered 76 followers in two months! But where are they on this one?!

      If the official Chinese censors, well-known for their humorless efficiency, are watching American television shows like "The Event," there is less danger to world civilization from the Chinese than many dire prophets have hitherto warned us to expect.

      Apostle Jack, I respect your opinion. I am not certain what you believe doesn't "hold any water". Could you clarify and be more specific? It will help me publish better blogs.
