I think the better way to say it is that a lot of "people" believe at your school... This date is a Mayan calendar issue, it has nothing to do with Christian theological or doctrinal concepts. (neither did y2k for that matter).

I've been trying to get them to realize it is just a mayan calender issue. But no, they're freshmen and they are soooo much smarter then sophmores, juniors, and seniors....speaking of my high school (a lil off topic here) i was standing outside during second lunch period. there was this student crossing the street getting back from taco bell and he got hit by this car. it broke this right femur, the bone poked through his thigh...really nasty....an ambulance had to come, but our school is only 4 blocks from 2 different hospitals. i saw the whole thing too. we got some crazy drivers in kansas, ive already been hit twice this school year riding my bike to and from school.

oh no lolz...i was waiting at a stop light (in kansas if a car in the right lane turing right, it can turn right wether the light is green or not). well there was this silver nissan or handa i dont remember that waited for the light to turn green to turn right. so when i was halfway across the street, the car floored it and made a wide right turn to try and get past me. well it didnt, i hit the passenger side door panel and my front tire left this huge scratch all the way to the end of the right fender. my bike then bounced off the car and i fell sidways onto the road. i wasnt hurt, i was just surprised...and really mad cause the car didnt even stop, it just kept going, it slowed down a little bit halfway down the block, but never stopped. by the time i got up and looked to get the plate number, it was already at the end of the block.

apparently this coincides with Nostradamus's prediction as well that the world will end in 2012. but you also have to remember, in his predictions "In the year 1999 and seven months," he says, "from the sky will come a great King of Terror/He will resurrect the King of Angolmois" this of course came to not be true since hey, it's past 1999 and we're all still here . basically nobody knows when the end of the world will be and we should all just be ready for whatever happens

I really think that the internet has KILLED this discussion. anyone can search anything and support either side and adimently believe it. what happend to books and hard research? i admit i love using the internet to research but unless you can verify it with a written hard source it is useless " i read stuff online and imscared" thats because you dont know anything if you search "the end of the world" you will get blabbering psychotics claiming the end is near. unless im mistaken i could go to NY or any city and see the guy with cardboard sign claiming the end is near.

what i am saying is that you eed to open your eyes and move them away fromthat screen you constantly flock to like addicts chugging dwn energy drinks and looking at the screen " OMGZ TEH W0RLD IZ GUNNA END CUZ _____ SAID IT ON THE INTERWEBZ" to understand what we are taking about READ BOOKS ARTICLES .edu .gov and MAYBE .org

and that ends my rant on uneducated mis informed people

It seems to me that most generations believe that their generation will be the last and that Armageddon will occur in their life. This reoccurs throughout history with 1666, Y2K, Waco and thousands of other similar events. Personally I believe it is just a side effect of the mortality of man.

Don't forget to mention the fact that the odds are VERY good armageddon could come in any number of ways at any time...us being here this long hanging on such a fragile string, really is going against the odds.

December 12 2012 we shift into the Aquarius age. Aquarius represent the "Great flood". I am not here to argue whether global warming is natural or whether it is being cause by man, but it is reasonable to believe that it is happening. I need not go in depth about it, because everyone knows the polar caps are melting at a concerning rate. It is possible that the Mayans were predicting a great food, which will devastate millions globally. Perhaps it will change the way we look at the earth.

and heres some common knowledge we can discuss, how do you explaine the polar icecap, which is receding very dramatically?

edit: and on another note, its the whole trend, not individual monthy cycles you have to look at. Geologic time is so vastly huge and we represent such a small part of it...I dont think our data samples are really large enough for us to conclusively say something or another. But just looking at different natural states, such as the desertification of africa increasing exponentially, or the icecaps receding...i would say its getting warmer..

first site teh source of your apriori/proof that the ice caps are receding "dramatically", adn if so that they aren't part of a normal cycle that is known or unknown, since measuring these is a very new development of information source.

and, yes i understand the idea of it possibly being a cycle, but we most deffinately are NOT helping anything. Have you looked up the "day after tommorow effect at all? its quite alarming, and seems reasonable. And look up the "snowball earth" theory, its a good read, and quite chilling. That this warming period will cause a catostrophic collapse in the earths climate, and it will collapse, creating a "snowball" earth.

yup - just like the ones I posted (and many others I didn't post) saying the opposite. again - depends on how convenient or "inconvenient" you want to interpret it.

as another example...

As with any debatable subject.

edit: and remember global warming is a trend, not made up of the data from a single year. If its cold like this next year, we'll talk.

You are very good at pulling sources. i gotta give you that. But i still believe it is an overall trend that is not effected by the weather of a single year...

and while we are on the subject, can i ask you this: do you really believe that our Co2 + CH4 emissions arent harming our environment? These gasses are proven to have a "greenhouse" effect..

edi: and know i have no personal agenda as to why its one or the other, im open to both, its just the way i see it now, we are in a warming trend.
