Thank you all for your feedback! I will also try to answer some of your questions and opinions, at least from the way I see it and from the research I’ve made.
Some of you replied saying either you don’t know about the prophecy or that you don’t believe in it. Well, as I said before, I don’t believe it will be the END OF THE WORLD itself, that suddenly PUFFF, everything is gone, but I strongly believe something will happen due to all the scientific facts and proofs. Again, the Mayans said that it will be “the end of the world AS WE KNOW IT”. It is scientifically proved that every 25.800 years during the winter solstice the Earth is in perfect alignment with the Milky Way Galaxy. In more simple words, on the 21st December 2012, the earth will be in perfect alignment with the sun, moon and center of the Milky Way Galaxy.
Some of you said that there is no proof that the 21/12/12 will happen. I also agree, there is no proof what in fact is going to happen on this date, but the Mayans knew the stars as any other civilization. It is proved that Mayans calculated every solar and lunar eclipse until today. They knew about the Galactic equinox and the exact center of the Milky Way. What’s more disturbing is that they predicted the year their civilization would be overruled by foreigners coming from overseas – THE SPANISH. So I guess if a Mayan tells you something is going to happen in 2012, you’d better take it seriously… However, the Mayans do not mention anything in concrete for the year 2012. There’s still no understanding why the Mayan calendar ends in 2012… therefore we let our imaginations fly away.
Nevertheless, there are many theories regarding this subject. Some say it will be the time of a new, glorious age of wisdom and peace. The Age of Aquarius, a world full of peace, love and understanding. I would like to believe in this one. It sounds much better than the Doomsday theories, but yet, isn’t it ironic that Aquarius is a metaphor for water? Mega Tsunamis, under water volcanic explosions, death of much of the sea life, disappearance of many coastal cities? Anyway… it’s just a thought…
Thus, some of you mentioned the overwhelming means of information we constantly receive. You mention that all of the natural disasters always existed, but we’re just better informed and we receive that information much faster and in real time through TV, internet, radio, newspapers, magazines, mobiles, etc etc. Indeed you are completely right; therefore I made some research regarding statistics and the increase of these natural events. I found an article that states the following:
“During the 40 years preceding the 1990’s, there were 142 classified natural disasters in the United States. During the 10 years of the 1990’s there were 72. The decade that followed from 2000 to 2009 it saw some of the worse and most destructive natural disasters in recorded history across the Globe. And the most destructive in the loss of life and property? EARTHQUAKES!! “Imagine… what happened in 40 years, half of those disasters happened in 10. And this is fact! Do you want to hear some more? “Earthquakes are the deadliest natural hazard of the past 10 years and remains a serious threat for millions of people worldwide as eight out of ten most populous cities in the world are on earthquake fault lines’, said Margareta Wahlstrom, UN special representative of the secretary general for disaster risk reduction”. Want some more??? “According to the figures released today by CRED (Center for Research on Epidemiology of Disasters) in Geneva, 3,852 disasters killed more than 780,000 people over the past 10 years, affected 2 billion others and cost a minimum of 960 billion US dollars…The current decade has commenced with early indications of that trend continuing. Devastating earthquakes in Haiti and Chili, and record-breaking winter storms in Europe and North America have left many dead and homeless, and town and city infrastructures greatly damaged. ” I guess I made my point here.
All these events seem to be easily explained with the final Polar Shift and the Galactic Alignment that will happen in 2012. If we think about it, the Earth exists for 14 billion years, which means that the Earth went through this phenomena at least 500.000 times, and yet life still exists. Scientists discovered that 8 million years ago, what is today Alaska, it used to be in the Equator. With the Polar Shift, the Earth will move 40 degrees and the North Pole will become the South Pole. This means that the Earth will start rotating in the opposite direction which will cause these dramatic disasters.
Once again, I don’t mean that Humans will not exist anymore, but I think that this is the time where Darwin’s Theory comes together. I was trying to imagine a Giraffe trying to survive during snow storms for instance, for sure it will die because the Giraffes didn’t develop any protection against severe winters, therefore, I believe within thousands of years, the Giraffe will mutate and gather what’s necessary to survive if it’s new ecosystem has snow. Of course this is just a very hypothetical example that just came to my mind, but in fact this can happen the same with humans. We will develop new forms of survival with new technology, science, medicine. We are no different from the other animals. We just have a more powerful tool which they don’t have… and that is our BRAIN! After all, these great advances that the human created through thousands of years are just a form of survival and protection of our own species. We are always trying to find a way to defy death and prolong our existence.
