With December 21, 2012 being not too far away what are your thoughts about this supposed doomsday? What have you heard will happen? What do you think will really happen? Are you doing anything to prepare for it?

If your Mayan 12/21/12 is Doomsday. If your American Doomsday happened on Nov. 2nd 2008. :)

It is the end of one era, and the beginning of another. :bowdown:

There's a lot of fear of the unknown so there are a lot of theories circulating about what will happen that day, there are too many things happening that year that could seem to be too much coincidence to ignore. I personally feel that it will just be another day but here are some of the things that I've read:

• The root of this prophecy- the Mayan calendar. The Mayans were known to be great astronomers and mathematicians and their calendar predicted a lot of what has happened with our planetary system throughout the years. This calendar is one that continues for many years but comes to a complete hault on 12/21/2012 and some people think they're predicting the end of time. Their basing this on a rare planetary alignment that will affect our planet and cause natural disasters that will pretty much wipe us all out. Other speculate that the date is when the Mayan calendar resets itself and starts over indicating a new era.

• Another doomsday theory is that the sun is currently building up energy for a solar maximus which will incinerate the Earth once it reaches the peak of it's cycle similar to the movie Knowing.

• Another theory, and probably the most far-fetched one, is that all 13 of the mysterious crystal skulls will be found around that date and when all of them finally come together they will somehow show us that we are not alone (ie aliens are among us) and that we will learn about our purpose for existing and that we better be prepared to open our minds something like that.

There are other things that are happening in nature's course like volcanic eruptions or major quakes that are long due to occur according to history that some believe will happen next year.

So it's interesting to see what others believe and i'm fascinated by that and that's why I posed the question. If you Google 2012 you'll see a lot of stories and theories even websites that sell 2012 survival kits. Like I said, I personally feel it will be another day but I do feel like all these recent natural disasters are building up to something big, it kinda has that feeling of it not being a question if it will happen but more when will it happen. I won't do anything to prepare besides making sure I'm by my son's side that day but I will be more aware of my surroundings and will definitely feel better waking up the next morning lol.

The way I look at it is that if the Mayan calendar is correct and that the world ends on 12/21/2012, then that means that on 12/20/2012 I will win the lottery finally. Which means I have something to look forward to.

Most world religions also are referring to a prophetic "end of days" (another great movie by the way). "Knowing" was a killer flick too (Nick Cage rocks), but wasn't that aliens in the end? If you do google 2012 you will get a ton of stuff...do if your bored sometime, you'll be amazed at every squirrel (nut) and their different opinions on the subject. As far as my opinion on the subject, even being also fascinated by prophecy, I remember the hype about computer meltdown around 12/31/99....me thinks this is pretty much similar...I'm gonna revisit this thread on 12/22/12 and wish all of you a Merry Christmas then. ;)

I don't know if it wil happen on 12/21/12, but the end of the world as we know it will be because of a solar flare. It could be on that day because of the alignment of the planets all pulling a flare in our direction. Recent news reports that I have read have said that the sun is entering into a cyclic high period of intense solar flares.

That must be the cause of global warming :rofl:

The sun moves in and out of a roughly 11 cyclical cycle of solar max. solar min. Its been doing that for millions and millions of years. I just hope when it goes off again (plasma discharge due to massive sunspot explosions from surface at 3.6 million degrees) that the electronics in my Jeep don't get fried, I understand that they would be pretty expensive to replace. ;)

I've read that as well and I believe it's even on NASA's webpage. The movie "Knowing" isn't too far fetched so it's likely that could happen. That's worse case scenario though but what will happen is that once the flares are at their peak it will effect any over the air communications including knocking out our cell phones momentarily. The biggest concern with that is the radiation, we'll all have the tan we've always dreamt of lol. Even the movie 2012 begins with these solar flares, it's because of the increase reception of radation that the Earth's core starts warming up and creates all kinds of havoc.

Time to build a Faraday Cage (http://www.faradaycage.org/) large enough for my Jeep, iMac, a couple of peace-makers - with the requisite multi-thousand rounds and shells - radio, generator and a couple cases of MREs. See you all the day after. Cheers.

Too much History/Science Channels, not enough Al Gore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:grim:

At least we can all rest assured that if we survive any catastrophes the world will be our playground with endless "off-roading" trails lol.

Japan's Record Quake Corresponds to Solar Flare Activity

Several well-known scientists chime in to corroborate the connection between the recent solar flare activity and the March 11 Japan 8.9 earthquake via the Sun-Earth connection.

by Paul Noel with Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News


The Earthquake in Japan follows a week of exceptional skip in the Amateur Radio bands. This means that the Ionosphere was exceptionally energized and the reception at exceptional ranges indicated that the Sun had extraordinary influence on this event.

On 3/9/2011 a CME left the Sun with an X1.5 flare. This is what www.SpaceWeather.com had to say about it.

"X-FLARE: March 9th ended with a powerful solar flare. Earth-orbiting satellites detected an X1.5-class explosion from behemoth sunspot 1166 around 2323 UT. A movie from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory shows a bright flash of UV radiation plus some material being hurled away from the blast site:"

This was accompanied by a really neat movie on the site of the flare. (Gif animation shown to right.)

Typically these flares eject CME and they arrive at earth in the order of 1 week later. This CME arrived on earth before the end of March 10 and continued into March 11. (Dates are USA dates not Japan dates.) It cause spectacular Aurora displays in the USA including Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan.

Therefore, the earthquake on March 9 in Japan is an event which has a clear probable cause. The sun triggered this event with a dose of electrical energy in the order of several trillion times of the energy of a 20kiloton atom bomb. This earthquake represents an energy release in the order of one billion times that a 20kiloton bomb.

I was watching the flare on the Space Weather site (Run by NASA) on the 9th of March and noticed that things were extremely big and popping. The CME was known to be aimed at the earth. Well, we now know what happened as the CME impacted earth.

These possibilities were discussed on the Thursday Evening Coast to Coast AM radio show. Mitch Battros, who for years has been stating that there is a tight correlation between solar activity and earth changes, pointed to ten M class flares from sunspots 1166 & 1163 during the last 48 hours as a possible cause for the quake. He also said that a large X class flare is likely within the next 2 weeks. In addition to earthquakes, and tsunamis, we should watch out for volcanoes, and not just in the Ring of Fire area, he added.

Also on the show was author and researcher Stan Deyo, who suggested that fluctuations in the gravitational field could be related to increased quake activity. "If the 8.9 shockwave over in Japan comes across and triggers the Juan de Fuca (tectonic) plate (between Washington and Oregon)-- it has an equally large stress build-up, around a Richter 9," he warned.

Alex Jones had Piers Corbyn on his show on March 11 to talk about the Japanese tsunami. Corbyn is a meteorologist, astrophysicist, consultant, and owner of the business Weather Action.
Description:

Corbyn says "The massive Japan Earthquake and Tsunami were triggered by massive events on the Sun and there are more to come in the next two years"

He Says:

• "The Earthquake was preceded by an X class solar flare and a significant hit of the Earth by a Coronal Mass Ejection - reported by nasa - http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/sunearth/news/News031011-xclass.html

• "We warned after the New Zealand Earthquake on 21 Feb that the solar-lunar scene is set for more Earthquakes for the next two years:

http://www.weatheraction.com/displayarticle.asp?a=314&c=5

• "Many of these Earthquake events, as well as weather events, will be very extreme.

• "Actual Earthquakes are very difficult to predict but major aftershocks will come after this one.

• "Just to be clear in case the usual fools and charlatans make claims the weather and earthquake events that have come and are coming are absolutely nothing to do with CO2 or so called man-made climate change in any way whatsoever and such talk diverts attention from where it is needed and holds back the advancement of science".
http://www.weatheraction.com/pages/pv.asp?p=wact1&fsize=0

Here is what an Amateur Radio guy said about the situation regards the incoming energy. He was only commenting on the skip effects.

Browsing back to Feb 22, 2011 (Christchurch, NZ earthquake date) NORTHERN LIGHTS: Blowing at 450 km/s, an unexpected solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field during the late hours of Feb. 21st. The impact did not spark a strong geomagnetic storm, but auroras appeared around the Arctic Circle anyway. Helge Mortensen sends this picture from Ersfjordbotn, just outside Tromsø, Norway:




"I thought it was going to be just another boring night," says Mortensen. "Luckily I was wrong. We had a great show!" Browse the gallery for more scenes from last night.

Take note that both earthquakes were matched up with CME impacts on earth. This is a situation that should be noted is quite common with earthquakes.

If people have any doubt that the Sun is able to cause earthquakes this should start to put the doubts to rest. Events in space affect us all. This is more proof of the structure of the universe and the unimaginably strong forces that affect our world.

Jeep5253 These people are connected with Alex Jones (Infowars, Coast to Coast & PrisonPlanet)! He is just one of a long list of sociopathic guys (making money off of gullable conspiracy nuts) that thinks 9/11 was an inside job (pre-staged with explosives at the command of Cheney, Rumsfeld, the CIA and other elite military insiders). He also put forward, in the past that the plane that hit the Pentagon that day was actually a missile we launched against ourselves! Another nutty thing he's said before is talk about a conspiracy that Bush, and now Obama is part of a "New World Order" run by the Bildeberger Group & the U.N. is preparing to bring the world economy down. I'd be very weary of any "facts" that this man claims. The internet is a great tool to find info. but unless you can prove a theory, replicate it and confirm it, its just theory, and this idea that a solar flare up caused the Japanese earthquake is silly....just plain silly. Earthquakes happen because of shifting plates of the earths crust (called Plate Tectonics). Actually, the moon, being 1/4 million miles away exerts more of a gravitational pull on the earth than the sun does (at 93 million miles away). I blame the moons influence and tidal pull on causing friction (causing heat) before anything from the sun, but the real cause of that quake came from deep inside our planet...no matter what Alex Jones or his minions with credentials that don't exist want to spin into internet belief. If Alex Jones is so right about all this conspiracy stuff he's been spewing for years why isn't he a household name? Why isn't he on every tv talk show, radio show, etc? It's because he isn't always right, and his only niche in life is to play to a fringe element in America that doesn't care what true scientific facts are, they just want a good story to follow and simply refuse to educate themselves with true scientific facts.
