2012: Social Media Uncovering Signs of the End of the World!

You may call it the Apocalypse, the Armageddon, the Big Crunch or just call it the end of life, it all boils down to the same conclusion: the end of mankind and maybe the start of a new era!

Whether we believe it or not, it seems that there is a general notion supporting the concept of a near end to the world, as we know it now at least. Moreover, sites have been developed, countdowns have been setup, documentaries have been produced and videos have been created to make sure the world is aware of the predictions towards a nearing annihilation of the world!

The one thing all these warning tools have in common with each other is the signs they speak of, such as: Wars, famine plague & disease, earthquakes, traffic accidents, rapid transport, knowledge, violence and more.

Since I consider myself an active social media user, I think I can safely state the following: regardless of whether the end is near or not, social media plays a crucial role in further spreading the idea and enforcing it into our minds, even if unintentionally!


Check out the following world end signs circulating the social media arena

The StumbleUpon Buzz!

All about 2012 with 31,000 views so far: “The date December 21st, 2012 A.D. (13.0.0.0.0 in the Long Count), represents an extremely close conjunction of the Winter Solstice Sun with the crossing point of the Galactic Equator and the Ecliptic, what that ancient Maya recognized as the Sacred Tree. This is an event that has been coming to resonance very slowly over thousands and thousands of years. It will come to resolution at exactly 11:11 am GMT.”

Doomsday, The Mayan Calendar and 2012 with 23,000 views so far: “What makes 2012 significant is that it coincides with the alignment of the center of the Milky Way galaxy, our sun, earth, and the large planets. If it was not for this fact I would say that 2012 was just another Y2K hoax…”

    Though their idea is actually cool, the whole Armageddon shit is annoying. But they handled it well :) Thanks Beirut!

    Here's a coupla other places to check for fascinating facts & conjectures about 2012:

    The Holy Bible, Book of Matthew, Chapter 24. Jesus own words about how to tell the end of the world is coming. Step-by-step! It's well worth the read. Stuff seems to be coming together right on this schedule!

    The South Pole Telescope. in 2007 & 2008 the US gvt. accomplished an (almost) secret Project directly on the South Pole, installing a building the size of a Walmart store and a huge special-purpose microwave telescope that first went into operation in late 2008. Everything had to be flown in during the two-month “summer” season, including every nut, bolt, beam and bologna sandwich necessary to build a 160,000 square foot building; 1,240,000 pounds of equipment and materials were shipped on one-hundred-twenty-one flights of Air National Guard C-130 “Hercules” cargo aircraft. To keep the project secret, the US gvt. used VERY EXPENSIVE mid-air refueling to keep the planes away from the regular civilian refueling base of Christ Church, NZ. The telescope is sited directly on the South Pole for stability (if you move opposite to the earth's rotation at exactly the same speed as the earth is turning, you remain rock-solid and can view a sector of stars for as long as it takes to see if one of those objects is GETTING LARGER IN DIAMETER. If it is, it's coming right at us, and that's bad news! Since there are 400 BILLION STARS in the Milky Way galaxy, there are a lot of objects to examine. That's why the rush! Data received from the stars by the South Pole Telescope is satellite-relayed to a laboratory in Dallas TX for online analysis. It is AWFUL living conditions – this winter everybody is bunking together for warmth instead of living in the private rooms they were promised, and all the heat is electric from the huge diesel generators, and ALL the diesel fuel must be flown in all the way from the USA (9,000 miles one way!) You can only fly in during the 2-month summer, because it is so cold in the winter (begins in June) that the hydraulic fluid on the planes will freeze and you can't take off (no flaps; no brakes). Altitude of the South Pole is 10,000'; it is 500 miles from the seacoast and no roads. Nobody knows what they're finding with that telescope, and they ain't talk'n! But it must be pretty important!

    Everybody knows the ending date of the famous Mayan long count calendar – 12/21/2012 – but how many know the BEGINNING DATE? The long count calendar is 5,125 years long – so the beginning date is August 11, 3114 BC. That's only 40 years after Adam died (Yes – THAT Adam!) and a few years before Noah's Flood. 3114 BC is the year that the astronomical observatory of Stonehendge was built in ancient Britian (Google this!), and about the same time that the ancient Egyptians, Sumerians, Babylonians, Chinese etc. began to observe the heavens every night, big time. Could it be that SOMETHING HUGE came through our solar system about that time – wacked a planet between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter and smashed it into flinders (creating today's asteroid belt), then came inbound, drawn by the Sun's gravity, zinged around the Sun and headed back out for another 5,125 year orbit; and during that time, it's gravity upset the Sun and in passing, rearranged the furniture here on earth, considerably. The ancient peoples – understandably frightened by all of this – established a watch on the sky for this thing to return. Maybe the Mayans could tell by the speed and the direction in which it was heading, that it would return in exactly 5,125 years. And maybe that's why they developed the “long count” calendar. Who knows? But the South Pole Telescope is searching the southern sky and the constellations of Orion and Sagittarius, and the ancient Sumerians report that “The Destroyer” came out of the southern skies from Orion and Sagittarius at an angle of thirty degrees. In the great pyramid in Egypt, there is a narrow shaft (once thought to be a ventillation shaft for fresh air) leading from the “Queen's chamber” in the center of the pyramid, to the outside of the pyramid; it is aimed directly at the constellation of Orion.
    Go figger!
    By the way – it will be exactly 1,000 days to 12/21/2012 in just a few days! I wonder what's going to happen?

    Yes and no. As much as social media plays a role in spreading this rumor (and I'm being overly polite in calling it that) it can also play a role in defusing it. Hence our website, our twitter account, and our facebook page. I'll also note that you quoted the FAMSI site above, which is *definitely* against any kind of misreading of the Mayan tradition as a prediction of an apocalyptic event.

    You are not alone in worrying about post 2012. There is a growing concensus that something is going to happen in Dec 2012.
