Back when Space.com had its regular forum boards (before they ruined the whole thing by going through Facebook), we had endless newbies coming on the site, talking about the certainty of the Final Apocalypse on Dec. 21, 2012, “predicted” by the Mayans and their calendar.

Many members at Space.com thought they were joking at first, but the “believers” in this nonsense persisted, and would wax on and on in detailed, elaborate posts about the “truth”: Nebuiru, the Rogue Planet; Mars hurtling out of its orbit to collide with Earth, and even “Galactical alignment” destroying tiny Earth (but apparently leaving the rest of the vast Milky Way Galaxy unharmed).

I pointed out to several of them that if the Mayans could predict the end of the world, how come they couldn’t foresee the collapse and destruction of their own civilization at the hands of the Spanish?

It boggles the mind how so many believe this nonsense. To get an idea of how many seem to, do some searches on Youtube. It’s astonishing, same with the number, and conviction, of moonhoaxers.

25,000 people’s worlds will end today, so in a way the Mayans were correct for some.
When you die, the world ends for you.
Jesus Christ made that point.

How sad is it that some people have to take what is otherwise a fun, completely a-political story, and try and turn it into a political argument?

Especially on ‘doomsday’ :P

Happy holidays all!

As it turns out, the Apocalypse happened on schedule at the stroke of midnight on December 21. If you are reading this, you may simply be experiencing your personal afterlife. If you do not like what you are reading, or if you expected the afterlife to be a lot more interesting than what you are doing now, you should have thought of that earlier in your life when you still had an opportunity to turn and repent.

It’s the Maya Age of Aquarius! Now we just need a hairy musical with a snappy soundtrack to go with it. Oh, and lots of nudity. Lots of nudity.

It doesn’t surprise me that so many people can be duped into believing the world is coming to end; after all Obama was re-elected.

“Buck Wolf, executive editor of crime and weird news for the Huffington Post, organized an end of the world party at Manhattan’s Hotel Chantelle on Thursday night.”

What he doesn’t say is that the hotel booking department DEMANDED payment in full for the party…and IN ADVANCE. Seems they too were worried about the viability of “tomorrow”.

Darrow…for the Prosecution
