Why would I listen to those government-controlled eggheads when I can listen to Nancy Lieder, who talks with aliens?

hahaha oh my, that site is still up? Was it 2003 they predicted the pole shift? Trouble times indeed. I wonder what would happen if she had Time Cube guy's baby.

NASA should say, "frankly we don't know if the world is going to end or not. But if you think it might, it's probably wise to off yourself now and beat the rush"

Of course they'd say that. They don't want us to panic.  It's just like how the Nazis told their prisoners that they were about to get a shower.

Had a baby? Please. If Nancy Lieder's vagina had ever been touched by anything other than the soothing, sandpapery caress of a cat's tongue, there would be no ZetaTalk website.

After a couple of huge fails, I don't understand why anyone would go back. We're not talking nuance here. "World ends on day X." Day X passes. You can't really claim you forgot to carry the one. Or that these supposedly hyperintelligent aliens that talk to you messed up their math. Or in the case of Camping, Jesus made a boo-boo. People who believe all that crap, no matter who's slinging it, I really believe have a serious mental disorder.

They're going to fake film of the world ending out in the desert, and funnel all the money into putting secret surveillance on anyone who knows the truth.

The sun will end long before the Earth does, barring a random massive meteor strike that shreds the planet.

well we are going through some meteors right now. and there was a huge asteroid that snuck up on us the other day that no one knew was there until it was about 2 days away.

My sister-in-law used to think that. She also thinks she's psychic. Then some guy on the internet sent her an e-mail saying that the Mayans forgot to include leap years, so we're good to go for another couple of months.

That's why I'm building a rocket to send my only son to a safer planet with a younger sun.

I'm going to punch the next person that says the Mayan calendar is more accurate than 'X', especially if X is a clock.

- it doesn't even have leap days
- Calendars are yardsticks, clocks are machines.

Unlike the May 21 2011 doomsday, it seems that hardly anybody actually believes this one. Using Kurrently last year I found hundreds of people preparing for rapture. This time around I can find plenty of discussion, but nobody who is actually expecting it. There are a few new-age flakes who are "rolling with whatever happens," but that's about it.

That is troubling, but did it start with an earthquake? Birds? Snakes? Aeroplanes? I mean really.... this is important to know.

The really interesting thing is that even if you take the Mayan mythology as gospel, they aren't even predicting the end of the world. It is merely one of their longer cycles, not unlike 2001 when our calendar predicted not the end of the world, but a new millenium.

We are long overdue for a handful of global killers. It will happen and relatively soon, but next week, yeah right. So far I have lived through the world is ganna end in 84,92 and 00. I'm pretty sure that 12/21 will be no different.

Thus is why NASA never gets invited to parties.

I'm thrilled Dec 21st is a Friday. This will let us really enjoy celebrating the possible end of the world.

So what if NASA can find *astronomical* reasons the world won't end? You can't prove this negative until the midnight on the international date line west.

Until then, NASA should shut its pieholes and let people enjoy themselves with this nice distraction.

And if the world doesn't end on the 21st, I have a calendar that shows Dec 31, 2012 as the last day so maybe the world will end that day instead.

I have a day-to-day flip calendar. So every day is like the end of the world for me. How can I be sure the rest of the days after today aren't blank? I'm afraid to look.

There are people that don't want to think that read websites on the internet, see the words 'end of the world', and expect armageddon. The internet is only happy to perpetuate it for page views, likes, shares, comments, etc.
