December 21, 2012 Judgment Day Will Arrive
By Krzys Wasilewski
Time is ticking away. If we should believe the
Mayan calendar, we only have four years until
planet Earth turns into another phase - that is,
until the world as we know it now disappears.
The deadline is December 21, 2012. Hurry up then!
Friday, December 21, 2012. Three days to Christmas
Eve and Santa's coming, but huge lines at shopping
centers are the last thing you worry about. Although
in your Gregorian calendar, it is another ordinary
day, in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar this
is the last 24 hours that mankind is given. Tomorrow,
there will be no Thursday; instead, Earth and
everything that lives on it will experience a
"No one knows for sure what exactly is going
to happen on December 21 2012, or in the days
leading up to that day. What we do know for sure
is that things are changing, and not necessarily
for the good of mankind," writes John on
his website, www.december212012.com. John and
his friends decided to start the website in 2006,
to inform and warn people about the significance
of the upcoming Armageddon.
But not everyone wants to believe.
"I'm in a difficult situation at the moment
concerning the fact that my parents need to believe
this stuff. I have no idea if there is anyone
around me that actually knows about this. In other
words, I'm kinda scared," says Aideen ("Little
Fire" in the old Irish), a 16-year-old girl
from Wales, Great Britain.
Aideen's parents and others may change their
minds, though, since recent signs leave no doubts.
If the prophecies of the Mayan were not convincing
enough - after all, they let the Spanish conquistadors
wipe them out in the 18th century, two hundred
years before the alleged end of the world - then
the coming of the Anti-Christ could not be brushed
under the carpet so easily.
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, together with
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, are the
harbingers of doom. It is their faces that appear
on a video published on John's website, to the
accompaniment of Enya's eternal hit, Only Time.
Only time will tell whether Sen. John McCain will
be able to prevent the Democrats from moving into
the White House, but the election of the new and
(as we are told) last pope is, unfortunately,
a matter of a more distant future.
Although the signs portend something bad, there
is a distinct division among the movement members
over what will actually happen on December 21,
2012. According to Ross Blaine, a graduate of
the Healing the Light Body School, there are two
theories. One speaks of "this [December 21,
2012] being a spiritual event." The other
theory takes the Mayan prophecies literally and
expects the physical end of the world.
Whatever happens, we should be on guard.
"The next few years are going to be difficult
beyond your imagination. Everything that is false
is going to fall away," writes Blaine in
her article, titled Conscious Mind Journal - 2012
The majority of the believers are young people,
usually in their teens. According to the messages
posted on the website's forum, they come from
every corner of the world, from the United States
to Great Britain to Japan to Russia. Most of them
live in affluent societies where traditional religions
such as Christianity or Judaism have become too
unattractive and obsolete to win people's hearts
"It is very lazy to think that Jesus or
Buddha, etc., will give you the reason of life
etc., its comfortable to think that," argues
Valeri, an Estonian interested in "spiritual
enlightenment, time and space."
Not everyone, though, agrees with the boisterous
Estonian. Those who have decided to comment his
post appear to belong to one Christian denomination
or another. But their religiosity goes only as
far as the end of the world is concerned. "How
did the guy who wrote the Bible knew that there
will be war and a meteor strike?" asks Bojan
Four years is enough to change your life. You
can always find the people you have hurt and apologize
to them, or those to whom you owe a "thank
you." And what if the Judgment Day does not
"Then after a collective, global, sigh of
relief, we will undoubtedly shift our attention
to the next potential judgment day in 2040 when
all nine planets of our solar system line up in
a straight line for the first time in hundreds
of thousands of years," says David Brooks,
a suspense and thriller novel writer.
