Nostradamus, Mayans And The Bible. The End Of The World?

So, this prediction has come about becaue of something the above three have apparently said. What gets me is that people sit there and decipher when the world will end. They read the predictions from Nostradamus, which made no sense and were actually printed wrong! There was never and never will be, any concrete proof that Nostradamus was a real prophey. The only basis they're going on is that the previous preditctions seem similar to things that have already happened.

Take 9/11 for example. "Earth shaking fire from the centre of the earth will cause tremors around the new city. Two great rocks will war for a long time, Then Arethusa will redden a new river."

This is the 'supposed' prediction that Nostradamus made on the twin towers. It's funny how they're interpreted that way after the event takes place. If they were real predictions, surely, they would have been abe to prevent this from happening?

So, how about all these other times when the world was supposed to end but didn't? In 1910, when Haileys comet was supposed to hit the earth, turns out didn't. Or, how about 1999, when Nostradamus predicted the end of the world. "The year 1999, seventh month. From the sky will come great king of terror."

July came and went and nothing happened! As it should have been expected. Who can forget Y2K? It was probably a mass scale panic! So people actually believe that as the new millennia drew nearer was that computers built in the 1900's would not be able to tell the difference between 1900 and 2000 dates. Nobody was sure of the implications that might arise. Many suggested that there would be vast blackouts and nuclear holocaust. Gun sales skyrocketed and survivalists got ready to live underground. Of course, there were only a few small problems. There was then 6/6/06- the day of the damned. Of course, nothing happened. It's just a date, guys!

And last but not least, who can forget the Large Hadron collider in 2009, which was supposed to cause a black hole in the middle of the planet and kill us all? Nope, once again the prediction was wrong.

People have been trying to figure out Nostradamus' predictions years and have come up with half baked assumptions on when the world is to end. Seriously, how many times will the world end?

This brings me on to the Mayans. The Mayan calendar ends on 21/12/12, the supposed doomsday. The only reason it ended on that day is because they all disappeared before it could be finished! It's like people actually want the world to end. Then, there are those people who bring religion into it and spout out about the second coming of Jesus.

Fair enough, but I'm pretty sure 21/12/12 wasn't in the bible. From my limited knowledge on Christianity, the second coming of Jesus will happen without anyone's knowledge. If the world ends, it ends. Stop trying to predict Armageddon!

So as I end this post, I finish on the note that I will sleep well on the night of 21/12/12 and wake up on the 22/12 with a big smile on my face, knowing I was right all along.

Nostradamus was a fruit cake for sure. The Mayan calender was complete, however. But you are correct, we do want the world to end. What we really want however is the death of our own ego so we project our illusory fears onto life around us like a child who creates a fictitious alter ego to talk with and learn about his own inner nature. Our collective unconscious paints all the world like this, no matter where we go there we are. We are looking for death but the death has to come from within to our own egotistical and dualistic perception of reality. The world has been ending since the day it began and 21 12 12 should be no different... in theory at least. (smiles) Such thoughts about the world ending are just "meditations" that help us learn to live in the moment all the more. <br />
