Sad, because, you know, where will they use it? I firmly believe that those who are making money in the name of Doomsday are not the ones who believe in it – they are the Non-believers.
Amazon has 1,972 books listed on Doomsday, including one titled – Doomsday Prepping Crash Course: The Ultimate Preppers Guide to Getting Prepared When You’re on a Tight Budget (Aug 2012).
Then there is a website – Kickstarter.com which is taking bookings for the doomsday (like I predicted in my earlier bogs). It says-
We’re only one week into the campaign and our project is already over 40% funded! Thanks to everyone who has pledged so far!
The booking of guests is underway and we’ll have details on that in another update. We looked into having an actual asteroid collide with the theater during the event, but it turned out to be cost prohibitive. We’re also looking into the possibility of live-streaming the event, which will go from possible to probable if we exceed our goal, so please tell friends and random strangers about this project and encourage them to donate! The future is looking good (as little of it as there may be)!
Guys, I am not making this up. Check the net – there are many sites like this.
Then there is another site- Ultimatesurvival.net. It has the following post on home page-
Doomsday Survival Bunkers Are Real (September 21, 2012 )
Now we come to the real issue for today, and that is – Planet X or Nibiru. I shall quote NASA scientist David Morrison who has studied the subject in some detail-
“Nibiru, supposedly a planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth. Zecharia Sitchin, who writes fiction about the ancient Mesopotamian civilization of Sumer, claimed in several books (e.g., The Twelfth Planet, published in 1976) that he has found and translated Sumerian documents that identify the planet Nibiru, orbiting the Sun every 3,600 years.
Then Nancy Lieder, a self-declared psychic who claims she communicates with aliens, wrote on her Web site ZetaTalk that inhabitants of a fictional planet around the star Zeta Reticuli warned her that the Earth was in danger from Planet X, or Nibiru. This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened, the doomsday date was moved to December 2012.
These two Nibiru fables were greatly amplified when linked with the turn-over of the Mayan long-count calendar at or near the winter solstice of 2012. Many Web sites sprang up declaring that December 21, 2012, would be the end of the world, a time of violent physical and spiritual transformation—never mind that the real end for Mayan civilization came several hundred years earlier with the European invasion of the Americas.
Most of the so-called Nibiru photos on the Web are lens flare produced when a camera points at a bright source, an artifact also responsible for many UFO photos. As it approaches Earth, of course, Nibiru should be increasing in brightness. In fact, if it were going to be inside Earth’s orbit in three years, it should have already reached naked-eye visibility, and tens of thousands of astronomers, both amateur and professional, would be tracking it.
As the story grows in complexity, many more doomsday scenarios are being suggested, often unrelated to Nibiru. These include a reversal of the Earth’s magnetic field, severe solar storms associated with the eleven-year solar cycle (which may peak in 2012), a reversal of Earth’s rotation axis, a 90 degree flip of the rotation axis, bombardment by large comets or asteroids, and bombardment by gamma rays or various unspecified lethal rays coming from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy or the “dark rift” seen in a nearby galactic spiral arm. A major theme has become celestial alignments, which fascinate laypersons. Supposedly, the Sun will align with the galactic center (or maybe with the Milky Way Dark Rift) on December 21, 2012, subjecting us to potentially deadly forces.”
But enough of hard facts and scientific jargon. Doomsday trackers and enthusiasts are looking at the wrong places. I would look at humans and their madness for the final scene, the ending. I am sure the match for the final boom will be lighted by us, not aliens, or their planets.
The cartoons, the right-wing, fanatical film makers and their protester friends, between them, have taken on the gauntlet. They are trying their best to live up to the deadline set by the Mayan calendar makers. And they might just succeed.
But till then, let the capitalist spirit boom, let a thousand ventures be launched. If nothing else, sheer greed will lead us to the much awaited Doomsday – sooner, rather than later.
