    SOME 2012 End Of The Worl INFO. all are soundly sourced and easily checkable with a few clicks.

    As predicted by the Mayas, on December 21st, 2012, the Earth will line up with the Sun which will be in line with the black hole at the center of our galaxy. No one knows for sure what will happen but people love to talk about it. very hot subject
    SCIENTIFIC EXPERTS globally are predicting and expecting that 3 years from now, all life on Earth may well come to an end. Some are saying it'll be we humans that would set it off. Others believe that a natural disasterous phenomenon will be the cause. And the religious folks are saying it'll be God himself who would press the stop and restart button. The following are some likely arguments as to why the world would end by the year 2012. Go through them and leave your view in comments.
    Reason one: Mayan calendar
    The first to predict 2012 as the end of the world were the Mayans, a bloodthirsty race that were good at two things — building highly accurate astrological equipment out of stone and sacrificing virgins.
    Thousands of years ago they managed to calculate the length of the lunar moon as 329.53020 days, only 34 seconds out. The Mayan calendar predicts that the earth will end on December 21, 2012. Given that they were pretty close to the mark with the lunar cycle, it's likely they've got the end of the world right as well.
    Reason two: Sun storms
    Solar experts from around the world monitoring the sun have made a startling discovery. Our sun is in a bit of strife. The energy output of the sun is, like most things in nature, cyclic and it's supposed to be in the middle of a period of relative stability. However, recent solar storms have been bombarding the earth with lot of radiation energy. It's been knocking out power grids and destroying satellites. This activity is predicted to get worse and calculations suggest it'll reach its deadly peak sometime in 2012.
    Reason three: The atom smasher
    Scientists in Europe have been building the world's largest particle accelerator. Basically, its a 27 km tunnel designed to smash atoms together to find out what makes the universe tick. However, the mega-gadget has caused serious concern, with some scientists suggesting that it's properly even a bad idea to turn it on in the first place. They're predicting all manner of deadly results, including mini black holes. So when this machine is fired up for its first serious experiment in 2012, the world could be crushed into a super-dense blob the size of a basketball.
    Reason four: The Bible says it
    If having scientists warning us about the end of the world isn't bad enough, religious folks are getting in on the act as well. Interpretations of the Christian Bible reveal that the date for Armageddon, the final battle between good an evil, has been set for 2012. The I Ching, also known as the Chinese Book of Changes, says the same thing, as do various sections of the Hindu teachings.
    Reason five: Super volcano
    Yellowstone National Park in United States is famous for its thermal springs and old faithful geyser. The reason for this is simple — it's sitting on top of the world's biggest volcano and geological experts are beginning to get nervous sweats. The Yellowstone volcano has a pattern of erupting every 650,000 years or so, and we're many years overdue for an explosion that will fill the atmosphere with ash, blocking the sun and plunging the earth into a frozen winter that could last up to 15,000 years. The pressure under the Yellowstone is building steadily, and geologists have set 2012 as a likely date for the big bang.
    Reason six: The physicists
    This one's case of bog — simple maths mathematics. Physicists at Berkely University have been crunching the numbers. They've determined that the earth is well overdue for a major catastrophic event. Even worse, they're claiming that their calculations prove that we're all going to die, very soon. They are also saying that their prediction comes with a certainty of 99 per cent; and 2012 just happens to be the best guess as to when it occurs.
    Reason seven: Earth's magnetic field
    We all know the Earth is surrounded by a magnetic field that shields us from most of the sun's radiation. What you might not know is that the magnetic poles we call North and South have a nasty habit of swapping places every 750,000 years or so — and right now we're about 30,000 years overdue. Scientists have noted that the poles are drifting apart roughly 20-30 kms each year, much faster than ever before, which points to a pole-shift being right around the corner. While the pole shift is under way, the magnetic field is disrupted and will eventually disappear, sometimes for up to 100 years. The result is enough UV outdoors to crisp your skin in seconds, killing everything it touches


    So, what are your guys thoughts on this whole subject?

    its true and the governent knows it.
    i probably shouldn't say this but....
    some of us have had correspondance through the post. we will be exacuated on the 19th to watch the event from space then onto the rendezvous point where we will repopulate.

    my advise to those who did not get an invite is go balls out!
    who wants to die disease free with savings in the bank.

    What is the point in the LHC? What are those poindexter's trying to achieve. Sounds like it's a bad idea and a fucking big waste of money.
    Religion IMO can fuck right off. It's a load of fabricated bollocks anyway. Fair enough if you are religious, but I won't let my life be dominated by some fucking made up, roody poo, fairy tales.
    I don't think the world's going to end in our generation. There might be a fair few natural disaster's but nothing that will completely eradicate human society.
    The whole Mayan calendar/end of the world thing is just mass hysteria.

    that is some high grade pseudo science my word. the scientists said it and all. you know they did research that when you smoke weed your soul leaves your body. the scientists did. probably true if they deny it too.

    but any doomsday theory based mainly on the LHC, the bible and some fucking mexican got my stamp of approval. im not going down alone though so let everyone know daddys coming home 2012. theres this lady i been wanting to fuck for seven years so when the time come im running straight over there and ill say OK LOOK BABY! WE GOT FIVE MINUTES. hope i get a nut just as the bomb goes off.

    lol, 2012... the myans never predicted 'the end of the world' with their calendar! this is miss-information, talk to an actual scholar of myan history and they will be like, BITCH PLEASE... but then again, everything on the internet is true, so im on the fence

    What about that nutty president of Iran nuclear bombing the shit out of us when we go in for his oil? I quite like the idea of six fingers, my crab scratch will be immense.

    first post is so full of wrong

    eg.

    so a singularity is the size of a basketball?

    this sound sourcing seems very unsound imo

    LHC is fundamental in finding out brand new awesome technologies, like the Steam-age of 200 years ago, it could completely change everything.

    yeah. it does in fact create mini black holes that exist for a very very brief moment before leaving some kind of cosmic smoke trail in which you can find the higgs boson happarently. to exploit peoples ignorance about the LHC is doomsday mongering analog with hip thrusting bicep flexing and howling at the moon to impress a girl in the bar.

    You were hating on the LHC before hating on the LHC was cool

    I say it's a good way to get rid of a few million in order to point to some readings and go "See that? That's my Nobel's Prize of Physics, right there!" because seomwhere along the way the "scientific community" lost its shit and came up with the fucking God Particle.

    It all comes down to coming to terms with nasty infinity I guess, or rather; the polar opposite..
