There are a lot of embarrassed doomsday prophets this week. Over the last year they have been only too willing to share their predictions as to how the world would end on December 21, 2012. This week they are all quiet. Despite the sun not flaring, planets not aligning and asteroids not hitting Earth at least there were no mass suicides as some authorities feared. Credit goes to local and national leaders for taking steps to prevent these catastrophes.
InFrance, the mayor closed all sites toBugarachMountaindays before Dec 21 to ensure there would be no mass suicides. Similar action was taken by Argentinean authorities for a mountain popular with UFO watchers after rumors spread of planned mass suicides in the site.
To avert potential mass suicides, Chinese police arrested about 1,000 people who were accused of spreading rumors about Dec 21 which caused panic buying of candles and hoarding of basic goods.
The so called doomsday prophets, are out spending there “hard earned” money before someone asks for it back. I have to admit this time around, the end of the world theory had a different ring to it. A lot different than the Y2K scare, where all the world’s computers were supposed to go haywire.
This time there were a lot of scenarios, Mayans long count calendar, solar flares, poll shift and galactic alignment etc, etc. All supposed to end life on earth as we know it. A lot of people world wide bought into this end of the world theory and they spent tons of money, some their life savings paying these false prophets to protect them, building underground bomb shelters or selling them land on top of some high mountain that nobody would had ever considered buying before.
Anyway we’re all still here and hoping that the governments of this world don’t decide to end the world for us with another world war.
