Preparing For The Mayan 'Doomsday Prophecy' [Just in case]

With the Mayan Long Count calendar concluding a 5,125-year cycle, many doomsayers are predicting a cataclysmic event will occur Friday, Dec. 21. Here’s how people are preparing for what they view as an impending global catastrophe:


Hastily trying to get in the good graces of snake-bird god Q’uq’umatz
Lining up to see Here Comes The Boom before it’s too late
Frantically downloading latest software updates
Throwing aluminum cans in with regular garbage
Finally telling children which one is favorite
Getting special “doomsday” haircuts
Allowing the extended warranty on Toyota Sienna to expire
Attempting to convince girlfriend this her last chance to try anal

It doesn't even mean that. It doesn't mean jack shit. It's the end of a 5000 year cycle but the calender goes on. It's not much more than our calender going from 2012 to 2013. The world may end but it's not because of the Mayans or their calender.

I find it amusing that 20 percent of Americans believe a Mayan prediction. I find it even more hilarious that the prediction was never made. A researcher misread a legitimate Mayan document. The mistake has long been known, but some people think scary myths are preferable to the truth. For more evidence, think politics.

I hear you Weary, even now there's another End-of-the-World scenario playing out amongst the crazy ones in America


Nearly four in 10 U.S. residents blame weather on "end times"

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Nearly four in 10 U.S. residents say the severity of recent natural disasters such as Superstorm Sandy is evidence the world is coming to an end, as predicted by the Bible, while more than six in 10 blame it on climate change, according to a poll released on Thursday.

The survey by the Public Religion Research Institute in partnership with the Religion News Service found political and religious disagreement on what is behind severe weather, which this year has included extreme heat and drought.

Most Catholics (60 percent) and white non-evangelical Protestants (65 percent) say they believe disasters like hurricanes and floods are the result of climate change.

But nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of white evangelical Protestants say they think the storms are evidence of the "end times" as predicted by the Bible.

Overall, 36 percent point to end times and 63 percent to climate change.

PRRI research director Daniel Cox said that some respondents - including 75 percent of non-white Protestants - believe extreme weather is both evidence of end times and the result of climate change.

"No one really knows how (end times) would look and how God would bring it about," Cox said.

Politics also color perceptions of the weather, the survey found. More than three-quarters of Democrats and six in 10 independents believe that the weather has become more extreme over the last few years, while less than half of Republicans say they have perceived such a shift.

"Their political leanings are even affecting how they experience weather, which is pretty fascinating," said Cox.

The January-to-November period in the United States this year was the warmest first 11 months of any year on record for the contiguous states. And 2012 will likely surpass 1998 as the warmest year on record for the nation, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

CALL FOR ACTION

Most climate scientists believe that the warming trend for the nation and the world is tied to human activity, such as the burning of fossil fuels.

Extreme storms like Sandy, along with more intense droughts, wildfires and floods, are projected by some as the result of climate change, though scientists are reluctant to attribute individual events to global warming.

The PRRI survey found that while there is disagreement about the causes of global warming, there is widespread agreement about the need for action.

Two-thirds of Americans say the U.S. government should do more to address climate change - including most of those who believe global warming is due to natural weather patterns, the survey found.

It also found that 15 percent of Americans believe that the end of the world, as predicted by the New Testament's Book of Revelation, will occur in their lifetime. Some 2 percent believe that the end of the world, as predicted by the ancient Mayans, will occur by the end of this year.

Some people who say they believe in end times do not act on that belief in their everyday lives, said Cal Jillson, political science professor at Southern Methodist University.

"I think that's their way of expressing a deep commitment to Biblical literalism," said Jillson. "If you sat down with them and said, 'Do you really think that within the next few years we'll experience the end times?' they probably don't ... . A good number of these people are saving for retirement."

The survey of 1,018 adults was conducted between December 5 and December 9. The margin of error was plus or minus 3 percentage points.

I think it's th 7 day adventists or Jahova dumb asses that keep predicting the end of the world. When that day comes and the world doesn't end they just pick another date. They've done this a bunch of times and the believers are sure that they'll get it right next time.

NEXT END OF WORLD: 2016

An article in Weekly World News describes a find by a Professor Lloyd Cunningdale of Salt Lake City who was excavating with his students at the site of the famous Donner party disaster of 1847. The latter were a group of settlers bound for California who became trapped by snow in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Cunningdale and students have found a time capsule left by the settlers which contains many predictions for the future. They predict that nations will abandon traditional methods of conflict and resort to the use of biological warfare. In 2016, one such disease will spread and kill all of the humans on the planet.
