December 21, 2012: End of the World Prophecies of Nostradamus
End of the World???
A lot of speculations have been springing up all over the news regarding the so-called END OF THE WORLD.
Just last night, I've been contemplating If I will also share my thoughts and opinion regarding documentary movie that's circulating online, especially at YouTube about the newly discovered last documentation of the famous European foreseer, Nostradamus, interpreting the end times through his chilly and scary quatrains (a four-line stanza of predictions based from his readings from the position of stars and constellations and his interpretation of the Book of Revelation from the Holy Bible.
Although, it is interpreted as only speculation, other notable discovery dates back to the Mayan culture of Central America, where the Mayans also predicted such phenomenon. In fact, there are series of seminars held in America tackling the forthcoming event of catastrophe or drastic changes in our planet Earth. Artifacts and symbolism or drawings depicting such future events were unearthed.
The controversial 'end' of the world will fall this year, especially on December, 21st (2012).
Historians from all over the world with the interpretations of different faith denominations conformed to the fact that there will be a BIG change this year.
Proofs of those changes are now eminent and being felt by mankind.
Let us bare those things here in my hub.
Last Predictions of Nostradamus
Scientists, historians and modern philosophers and alchemists who follow the steps of Nostradamus and ancient civilizations are also testifying to the authentic interpretation of the Mayans and the foreseer himself.
If you cannot watched the documentary, let me share with you the introductory message of the film.
December 21st, 2012...daybreak doesn't come. All remains dark. The world has come to an end.
Many ancient cultures all across the globe described startling events that seemed to be taking place now in 2012.
Newly discovered drawings that many believed to be from the famed Nostradamus may hold the answer.
One historian said, "We're really on the edge of our biggest ride in all of our history."
Life on Earth did face extinction at least five times before. Is Nostradamus telling us that another epic disaster is on the way?
"2012 is kinda beginning of the people in the world rather than the end."
Is 2012 the year that cosmic clock finds to boil down to zero days and zero hope?
Decoding the final predictions of Nostradamus may provide some answers before the clock strikes December 21, 2012.
The recently discovered lost book of Nostradamus reveals drawings that may contain coded clues about what will happen in 2012.
Like Nostradamus' quatrains, these drawings give dire warnings and the popular prophet's stature make them difficult to ignore.
Nostradamus and the End Times
Reactions from 'End Times' popular authors
Gregg Braden, author of The DIVINE MATRIX, said that "Many people today, when they find themselves frustrated with the inability of science to answer the deepest questions of our time are looking into the past. That is when we look to great seers of the past, such as Nostradamus."
Our planet is faced with crises of alarming complexities: oil shortages, vanishing species, deadly tsunamis, economic chaos and clear threats. Is this coincidence or something ominous unfolding?
John Petersen, author of VISION FOR 2012 explained , "We are reaching a conflict to tip points and fundamental systems. Tipping points on energy, climate system of the planet, tipping points in terms of financial system, food production, water issues and a lot more."
Vincent Bridge, Co-author of MONUMENT TO THE END TIMES expressed: "At one moment, all these things converged either to destroy or make a rebirth."
Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok, author of WALKING IN THE FIRE explained: "Every world culture has always had its own prophecies of an "end times". And it is only natural that people are dealing the connection between our cultural traditions with what is happening in the world today."
Earlier still, some believed that those prophecies are portrayed in the Lost Book of Nostradamus and its images are focused to the fact that on 2012 it's first perspective that the sun's alignment to the Milky Way galaxy will be an incredibly an astronomical phenomenon that occurs only once, every twenty-six thousand (26,000) years.
Lawrence Joseph, author of APOCALYPSE 2012 said: "Half of the 26 thousand years cycle will coincide with the last Ice Age and the end thereof, as we talk about the greatest time of Global Warming is the melting of that last Ice Age. God forbid, we should be in for something of that magnitude."
Galactic alignment and other astronomical phenomena
Year 2012 saw the occurrence of three eclipses, the solar eclipse, transit to Venus and this last, the galactic alignment or known as the 'Dark Rift'.
Because the Earth is rotating on its own axis (and had a tilt last year, 2011 where the 13th Zodiac Ophiuchus was again recognized), location of the stars change at a time.
The Galactic Alignment in its simplest term is where the sun rises in a direct line with the center of our galaxy, the Milky Way.
According to an array of ancient cultures, this alignment signifies traumatic changes.
Before the existence of the Great Seer Nostradamus, the Mayans of ancient Guatemala did already predicted what will happen on year 2012.
John Major Jenkins, author of MAYA COSMOGENESIS 2012, explained that: "the world is approaching some kind of passage. And I think, what's the word for this is galactic alignment."
One of the most significant cultures thought to have observed this phenomenon is the Maya, famous for their advance grasp of astronomy. Their prediction of this alignment of the sun and the galaxy is known as the 'dark rift' which they believed will bring terrible consequences.
It is believed to be repeated by numbers of ancient cultures, especially Egyptians.
End Times is apocalyptic as revealed in the Book of Revelation, written by St. John as guided by the Creator Himself.
Visions of the future may explain it that if the sun is rising in the dark rift, it's going to be the time that we'll experience cataclysmic destruction.
Joseph Jochman, a Maya scholar also emphasizes: "The ancients knew how to be one with themselves, with all the nature, with all their lives, with all the cosmos, and we have lost touch with them."
What is happening now, particularly the changes that are taking place with the world's ecology, all of these things were all predicted by Nostradamus and the ancient cultures, especially the Mayans.
Like the Mayans and other culture before him, Nostradamus looked into the stars and saw the coming danger.
Let us read his Quatrain 1:55
There will be a great shedding of blood;
Heaven will appear unjust.
Both on land and sea and in the air...
Cults, famine, Kingdom, plagues, confusion.
A controversial figure in history, Nostradamus died almost 500 years ago and centuries away from 2012.
Yet time and again, his predictions were/are interpreted as highly accurate. He had foreseen major events, particularly religion, politics, economy and even science.
December 21, 2012 scenario and theories
Speculations arises as the galactic alignment is expected to happen on that date.
- Scientifically, one theorist opined that there will be a change at the polarity of the Earth. North Pole will become South Pole or vice versa.
- Darkness will be experienced on Friday as the sun aligns at the dark rift of the Milky Way galaxy.
- Chaos will follow as confusion will be felt be people around the world as the expected darkness will be experienced during that day.
- The darkness will be the same as it happened during the creation of the universe.
Whatever happens during galactic alignment, no one knows as it is only predicted by humans. We don't know how the Hands of God works.
Trust and prayers are only our weapon to keep our faith going. Only God can tell when will the world end.

Most of the data that I collated were based from the news I gathered and documentary that I continually view but can never finish (I wonder why), Nostradamus 2012. Since the last months of 2012, it has been my routine to watch it as my eyes drop to sleep.
I transcribed what the prominent authors of End Times on 2012 have said in the video.
You can also search for their works and blog site online for better understanding on what I have shared with you in this hub.
I recommend readings on books authored by John Major Jenkins, as he had the vast knowledge on the subject called End Times.
Nothing happened during the so-called 'end of the world' day.
Yet, it drew many tourists who participated in the ceremony held at the temple site in Guatemala and even Mexico where the Mayan culture and its people thrive centuries ago.
Right now, most of us will go on with our lives and put an end to such speculations of the old age and start anew with fear of what will happen to our planet.
It's us, humans who will destroy this habitat, since most of us don't mind destroying the ecology of this world.
That's a fact.
